Super What

Super What
First, I thought this was an advertisement for a DJ (there is a DJ Arturo).



But then I looked this up on the Net. 



On Twitter: “Christian man living in DC and shining a bright light on a dark world. The mask protects me and the ones I love from retribution.”



So not sure what this really is:



– Vigilante (“None Violence”) Crime Fighter



– Superhero wannabe



– Whistleblower



– Hot Air Blower



– Nut job



Anyway, hope you are lawful and one of the good guys! 😉

You Mess At Your Own Risk

You Mess At Your Own Risk

This guy is obviously pretty serious about not messing with his car.

“Touch this car again. You are laser sighted. You will be shot in the face!!!”

I remember in NY, people messed with the cars all the time–nasty stuff like backing or plowing into your bumpers when trying to park, keying cars, slashing tires, knocking off the mirrors, egging the cars, and one guy I remember even had his car stolen and the couple actually had sex in his back seat!

The stupid steering wheels locks to the brakes were a joke for security, the noisy annoying car alarms were so routine no one looked or cared, and LoJack helps you find the clunker again although you may never want to drive it anyway after what the crooks would do to it.

Not sure this sign will help ward off all the crap that people do–somehow they always find another way to be jerks with someone else’s stuff.

Aside from James Bond’s car that would explode if you tried to mess with it, does anyone else have any good ideas for car protection? 😉

Unjust Justice

Unjust Justice

The Wall Street Journal quotes U.S. District Judge Richard G. Kopf who offered advice to young judges, as follows:

“It’s not your job to save the world. Do law, leave justice to Clint Eastwood.”

What a notion he has–that it is not a judges job to mete out justice–how (oxy)moronic!

Instead, the judge says that is for vigilantes like Clint Eastwood’s role in Dirty Harry (or perhaps Charles Bronson in Death Wish).

While I understand that the law is the law, you would think that a judge’s role is to not only ensure that it is applied evenly, but also that it is meted out fairly.

As it says in the Torah/Bible (Deuteronomy 16:20), “Justice, Justice shall you pursue.”

It is not enough for the “justice system” to enforce laws brainlessly, but the role of the judicial branch is to interrupt the law so that justice results.

What a contrast to even the bumbling inspector, Clouseau, in the movie, The Pink Panther, who knows “Yuri, the trainer who trains,” but some of our judges don’t seem to know that they are judges who sit in judgement.

So much for “jurisprudence”–but without any prudence!

Doing law, without pursuing justice is like dehydrated water in this picture–empty and good for nothing. 😉
