One of the things I do during that weekend is listening to the police scanner. Over the last few weekends I have come to some conclusions.
Rich people are reckless drivers. Why do I say this? It is amazing that amount of people who call in complaining of someone recklessly driving. The cars that seemed to be always mentioned are BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Audis, and Cadillac. These are the cars of normal poor people.
If I was a kid growing up in today’s world, I would always be in trouble with the law. When I grew up we rode our bikes in the middle of the street. We rode our mini-bikes/ scooters in the empty field across where we lived. We played games that would require at times entering into our neighbors lawns. All of these things I mentioned people call the police about now a days.
Sunday late afternoon/evening is divorce couple day. It is amazing how many calls that the police get that require them to force the divorce person to turn over their child to their spouse according to the divorce decree. Not once was this because of claim of abuse. It was just one spouse using their children as a way to get back at their ex.
It is not a good thing to get back at the person who cut you off. It is amazing how many people rear end the person who cut them off because they are mad at them. Does jail time sound right?
Do not use loud lawn equipment. There are way too many calls by neighbors who do not like the fact that people have loud lawn mowers, chain saws, and edger.
Police officers have to be able to speak Spanish now a days. We have an ever growing Hispanic community that cannot speak English and refuses to learn how to speak English no matter how long they live here.
It amazing what you can learn by listening to the police scanner.

(thank you mr matteo for sending me this)
Opening night for this movie cannot get here fast enough. I need to see this movie.
Psalm 139:13-14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
If you are a regular reader of this horrible little blog, you know that I have at times struggled with either being Pro Choice or Pro Life. I’ve struggled with do I have the right to tell someone they have to live by my religious beliefs and I struggled with the belief that we devalue life by allowing abortions for birth control.
If you believe like I do that the Bible is the word of God, then this verse end this conversation. God through David is telling us that He creates us in our mother’s womb. We have no right to destroy human life that God is creating.
This is a pretty cool. I wonder how long it took to record this.
Well it is time for another Thomas Law. I know that you all are holding your breath in pure excitement with this new Thomas Law that needs to be implemented.
So here we go.
People are no longer allowed to have bird feeders, feed birds in any manner, and have bird baths or bird watering stations.
The reason for this new Thomas Law is for public health. We all know that one of growing types of flu that we have today is the bird flues. We also know that these types of flues are deadly. So what happens after these birds have gorged themselves on all this easily accessible food? These birds then relieve themselves all over people cars and homes. Thus needing they need to be cleaned which puts people in contact with this wasted material which could be carrying a type of bird flu.
If you have ever read this little blog before, you know that I think we need to get guns off of the streets. So when I read this news story about the government ordered the files for the 3d print guns taken off of the internet, I was surprised and shocked.
Why was I surprised and shocked? The Defense department ordered them taken down. Where does our Constitution say that they have the legal authority to do this? Could it be that the government realizes that they really do not have the authority to order the files taken off of the internet, so by having the Defense department do it, it gives them the time to make a law to outlaw these guns while a case works its way through the courts.
These 3d print guns need to be regulated. Hopefully our elected officials will do their jobs and take care of this threat to the public safety.
