The Mystery Of The White House And The Flashing Red Lights

It started last night when Fox News first posted a live stream of flashing red lights inside the White House residence.

I like creative people

Where there’s a will, there’s a way:

DOUGLAS, ARIZONA – Drug smugglers employ very creative methods to get their loads across the U.S.-Mexico border.

But it’s not every day they use a van outfitted with a 10-foot (3-meter) air cannon to shoot projectiles into the United States.

Mexican federal police said in a statement last week they found such van parked on a street in Agua Prieta, Mexico, along the border with Douglas, Arizona.

It was reported stolen from the city of Hermosillo in the Mexican state of Sonora over the summer. Authorities also said they found an air compressor apparently used to launch packages.

U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Vicente Paco said Tuesday that agents regularly see numerous methods used by smugglers to send contraband over the border fence.

The most common is lobbying softball-sized marijuana packages over the fence and into the U.S., often in residential backyards, Paco said in statement. Smugglers pay someone on the U.S. side to retrieve the packages, which are then distributed around the country.

Paco said high-pressure air cannons can launch heavier marijuana packages weighing 60 pounds. The Border Patrol has also seen the use of trebuchets, a catapult-type launcher that can be crafted from wood.

Numerous movie sites, used to regurgitating press releases, have parroted the “true story” behind The Conjuring, Annabelle and now The Conjuring 2, remolding Ed and Lorraine Warren from dubious attention-seekers into frontline warriors in an… Continue Reading →

Pig on the run


My friend Kathy posted this on her Facebook page this morning. This pig was at her front door! She said she called the cops, and when they showed up, they just sat there and laughed. No one seems to know what to do with a pig on the run.

I told her to build a BBQ pit.
