Strange Stuff for Saturday...

 do some goings on strike you as really odd, or is it just me?

It seems that the FBI managed to do a complete inspection of the home of terrorist killers Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik in record time.  Then on Friday morning, somehow or another, the media was allowed to enter and take a gazillion pictures.

The Daily Mail posted a photo array that, if bound up, would qualify as a coffee table book.  No item was spared, including toothbrushes, the spice rack, and the pizza cutter. There is something definitely odd about this.


It seems the New York Times, for the first time in 95 years, put an op-ed on it's front page, “End the Gun Epidemic in America.” 

Check out the last three paragraphs:
It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation.
Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.
What better time than during a presidential election to show, at long last, that our nation has retained its sense of decency?
Odd to us, but maybe not to the elitist soy latte drinking snobs who actually read this crap-weasel of a newspaper.  


Yesterday, Leonardo DiCaprio, spoke at the UN summit on climate change, or global warming, or whatever the hell the elitist know-nothings are calling it now.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't DiCaprio an actor?  What is he doing speaking at the UN?

And guess what he demands?
“Climate change is the most fundamental and existential threat to our species. The consequences are unthinkable, and worse, it has the potential to make our planet unlivable. The solutions we seek require all of us to make real changes in the way we live our lives, operate our businesses, and govern our communities. Our future will hold greater prosperity and justice when we are free from the grip of fossil fuels.”  source
Yeah, I'll get right on that Leo, as soon as you divest yourself of your five houses, private jets, luxury yacht rentals, limousines, helicopters, and give away your reported 225 million dollar fortune.  Dope.

I understand his new Christmas release movie is bloody, violent, and depraved, because nothing says "Merry Christmas" like blood and gore.

If you go to see his movie, you're part of the problem.


The oddest of all is this year's official 500 lb gingerbread house depicting the White House.  New pastry chef, Susan Morrison, who replaced some old white guy, decided that the White House really didn't need to be white so she used dark chocolate, which, not to be too graphic, looks like crap.

Surrounding this monstrosity is a bunch of cheesy looking "snow people", mean looking nut crackers, and the first dogs looking like they missed having their rabbi shots updated.

And it took two Michelle Obama appointed designers to work their "magic" on these trees, because the good Lord knows it takes real talent to plunk a bunch of bows, snow people, and little boxes on trees.

Not to be outdone, the official Christmas tree is wrapped elegantly in toilet paper. 

That's about all the odd I can handle for one day.
