Oregon War Memorial Vandalized as Antifascist Protest Turns Violent Where have we heard this before?  Or, rather, when?  Obviously, it is a continuing theme of the domestic terrorist group that calls itself Antifa.  They look for things to vandalize, and law-enforcement officers to attack.  Now, the article states that this was a counter-protest, of a […]

First, they came for the Confederate War Memorials and… well, a few people spoke out, but they were promptly attacked as “Nazis and White Supremacists.” Then, they came for the Founding Fathers, and no one spoke out, because who wants to be accused of defending white slave-owners. Last night, the nation’s oldest monument to Christopher […]

They say you should learn something new every day. I learn the most wonderful things from bathroom stalls. The other night, eating breakfast at a Perkins I learned three things: that Def Leppard Sux, that to have a good time one no longer needs to call, one merely has to text, and that the sage […]

[Cross-posted on RushBabe49.com] The title of the story on the KOMO news web site is Watchdog: SPD Needs Big Mayday Reforms. In Seattle, MayDay every year brings out the Anarchists, masked and destructive, breaking glass in store windows, and other acts of vandalism. See this picture-this is what the Seattle Police Department is faced with […]

I’ve been talking with someone who manages cybersecurity operations. He tells me one of the most effective security measures for consumer and employee PCs is also the simplest. If you’re just browsing the internet or using common programs, log into a user account without Administrator privileges, such as a Guest account. Whatever authorities your active […]

The Mean Pettiness Of Theft

 

DSC02416I own a travel trailer and use it to take my family on vacations. It is a great way to see the nation while still taking your home with you, it avoids hotels, and it lets you spend your nights in some absolutely gorgeous areas. Only hiking and tent camping will get you further into the wilderness. The downside to the trailer, though, is storing it when it is not in use. I rent a spot at a local storage lot. Last night that lot was raided by a team of thieves.

We got the call this afternoon from the lot manager, telling us that we needed to get down and patch things up, take an inventory, and file a police report on what was stolen. There were around 30 RVs on the lot, and nearly every one had been raided. The thieves moved quickly, smashing the window on the door, slashing the screen within, then letting themselves in. They only stole what they thought they could fence, so they left the sheets and towels, the crock pot, the iron skillet, and (strangely enough) the septic hose fittings. They tried to bust into a side compartment where I keep the hitch ball and tools, but must have deemed it a waste of time (and scrap metal dealers operate under massive scrutiny here).
