Spare the rod, and see what happens

Back in my father's day, when you wanted to be recognized by your fellow citizens, you served your country. You risked your life to save others and protect the nation. As a reward you might receive the benefit and recognition of a medal of honor.

We still have old fashioned heroes like this. They serve in our military.

Unfortunately, we have an ever increasing number of people in our nation, who find the way to recognition is an empty expression of civil vandalism. As long as they get the attention of as many as possible, that is the goal; even if that attention is one of disgust.

2 vandals attack, damage a bust of Jesus in Copley Square library

A 160-year-old marble bust of Jesus was attacked at the main branch of the Boston Public Library earlier this month, knocked from its perch on the grand staircase and sent crashing to the floor.

This behavior is passively celebrated by the magic mushroom addled rejects that infest our schools and universities. It is actively celebrated by our sensationalist media, all too willing to provide that attention, on the same stage they provide a microphone to terror masters.

MIT Computer Whiz Arrested With Fake Bomb At Logan Airport

A woman arrested Friday for carrying a fake bomb into Boston's Logan airport is an MIT computer whiz who loves "crazy ideas" and "saving the planet from evil villains," according to her blog on a Web site hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

This little 'whiz' is using the same excuse as the jackass-wannabees who planted devices under bridges in Boston, not so long ago.

It appears that we now live in the age of the snotty, undisciplined, attention seeking brat. I can only guess that mommy and daddy stopped paying for the Ritalin prescription.

But then how does iRobot survive in that environment? Do their employees hang out in a different plane of existence in the Boston area?

They survive the same way I do. Suck it up and pay the taxes.

When it comes to the left crowd, they need to subscribe to mild schizophrenia. They love to rally against the evil corporate machine about government giving out 'corporate welfare'. But when their moonbat governor does exactly that, keep your ears open for the deafening silence.

Not that I am, in any way, against promoting business and jobs. It just would be nice if he doesn't hike our fees and taxes and chase more people out of the state at the same time.

I won't hold my breath.

That girl is damned lucky she lived to talk about her airport adventure...

GUG - Yeah. She was lucky. We were not.
