Vol. 165: The Past is Eternal

     Greetings ladies and gentlemen, once again this Thelonius Ronscpiacy reporting from the front lines at the battle for mankind's soul. Just outside the realm of right and wrong, I stand on the precipice of observance and action. I'm note taking from the digital underground, which leads me to the question, what are the odds that there are no coincidences?
     A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to view what may be the metaphor for the Occupy Movement if it was set to music and took place in Paris in 1814; that was the musical Les Miserables. A brilliant film with enough music and revolutionary aspirations to appease the discontented. It is a film for the have-nots in preparation for the storming of the gates. One day more we move closer to the edge of the unknown while our politicians play chicken with our childrens' future; all for the sake of re-election. We may have to bring back the guilotine?
     The movement of shadows out of the corner of my eye, against the wooden bars of the back of chairs, minutes after midnight alert me to the fact that the dimensions are opening, the shadow people are watching. It is necessary to view everything with an open mind. 

     Now is the time of year when Football has taken center stage. A few weeks ago, Heisman trophy winner and hopefully future Minnesota Vikings quarterback, Johnny Manziel continued to make College football look like an old SoloFlex commercial. There's no one open down field, just take it in for a touchdown all by yourself; simple. It's a good thing Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o didn't get the award. What a sad sad state of affairs. What's next? Will we find out he was molesting children? It is a Catholic school.  Good thing the reporters who never checked their sources don't work for the Outrage. We have a reputation to uphold.

Is Ray Lewis a murderer?

     At the urging of a possible future contributing writer who still goes by the moniker of the "Living Legend," and staying on a theme of football just in time for Sunday's AFC Championship game; I will briefly cover the possible Ray Lewis conspiracy. So, before we all get too excited and tearful at the end of what has been a Hall of Fame career, he just may be as tainted as the good ol'lying cyclist from Texas, Lance Armstrong. For those of you who do not know, Ray Lewis was indicted on murder charges for the deaths of two people in 2000 outside a nightclub. Charges were later dropped when Lewis took a plea deal of 1 year of probation and to testify against his two friends who were also charged. In 2004, Lewis reached financial settlements with both families of the victims. The NFL fined him $250,000 with no suspension and has since then, swept the entire incident under a rug.
     I want to know what you guys think about all of it. I've always suspected that he got away with it. Lewis admitted to giving police misleading information, took a plea deal, paid settlements, and said he "lost" the white suit he wore at the time the victims were killed.. That sounds like a guilty man. 


     On a lighter, much more positive note of amusement and interest; the biggest thing to come out of Minneapolis since the time that Prince actually released something worth listening to, was the North Minneapolis YMCA's summer youth group smash YouTube sensation, "Hot Cheetos and Takis". Get your fingers stained red, grab a cold beverage and enjoy what kids with talent and an interest in something that's relevant to them can achieve. With enough help, we can finally push Gangnam Style to the curb.

Everyone should do themselves justice and find the time to get introduced to the NPR show Radiolab. A philosophical talk radio show out of the liberal media elite mecca that is lower town Manhattan and immerse themselves in some deep critical thinking other than watching American Idol or the latest exploits of Honey Boo-Boo. It is a show of random coincidence, underlying meanings and trying to find a sense of purpose in a world that hasn't even the time to let proper people merge into traffic. This way to Radiolab

Then there is the ever intriguing, deepening mystery of what occurred in Cold Spring, Minnesota on the evening of November 29th, 2012 that left a 31 year old police officer, Tom Decker, dead from an apparent staged ambush. The once lead suspect is back in jail for failing to obey his "stalking" charges and the man who police eventually had centered their line of questioning after finding the murder weapon, ran into a pull-barn warehouse shed on his property and expeditiously hung himself. Which leads this conspiracy driven mind to ask, did he have the rope already there to hang himself? What was the young police officer investigating that led to his death? There's something rotten here and we may be a land of Swedes and Norwegians, but were not in Denmark anymore. The story continues to develop. Stay tuned.  

     How is Chuck Hegel a controversial pick for Secretary of Defense? Because he's made comments about the Jewish lobby in Washington? Because he made homophobic remarks 17 years ago? It is clear that if you are to go anywhere in politics, you better not upset the Gay Zionists. This issue correlates to the fact that Obama appoints more middle aged white men to head the CIA, Treasury Department, State Department and the Pentagon. What is this? The Augusta National golf club? Will they at least get green jackets?

"I'm about as diverse as my Cabinet. Just another Washington insider that wears a suit. To steal a character's name from Boardwalk Empire, call me Chalky White."
Wanna see something crazy? Look below and move from left to right.

    A slight difference in insanity but crazy all the same was the lack of service at the Land O'Lakes Kennel Club Show a couple of weeks ago at the River Centre in St. Paul. The complete lack of efficiency in the "Keystone Cops" of the refreshment food vendors would've made you believe you'd been transported to Ellis Island around the turn of the 20th century and were waiting to be shuffled along with your papers and documentation, praying that they got your order and name correct and weren't placed in an inhospitable burrough of the city. To this educated Outrager, it was just another sign that we are living in the era of the minimally staffed; but we did get to see a Berger-Picard. Look it up.

In addition, here is a little nugget of knowledge from our Republican insider, Double T of the GOP. Enjoy.

Obama’s March 16, 2006 speech against raising debt ceiling

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.
And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on.
Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans–a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.
Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.
Sen. Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., (Senate – March 16, 2006)
The hypocrisy is a pandemic as bad as the flu season.

    Finally, take a listen to the new sound of cold weather. You can almost feel the wind chill, smell Doc's Bohemian Cue and hear the Year of the Cat, although I would wager they'd love to kick his ass in good ol'Anoka County.
