This Would Explain Southeast Georgia Health System

Without going into the long litany of incidents, I will mention the time a SGHS nurse tried to draw blood from a patient and had to stick her TWENTY times to get a vein.

OK, and the time the ER lost a patient was pretty good.

More than 7,600 fake nursing diplomas issued in Florida in alleged wire fraud scheme
According to charging documents, many of those involved in the alleged scheme are from out-of-state, including people from New York and New Jersey. The nurses with the fake degrees went on to work in various settings, including for homebound children, assisted living facilities and veteran affairs, and in several states, documents show, including Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Georgia, Maryland and Texas.

And if they’ll work cheap enough, I doubt SGHS would even care.

I’m So Old…

I can remember when we called dangerously cold weather in January “winter.”

Dangerously cold weather forecast across central, northern US
Temperatures will be 20 to 40 degrees below average, with highs only reaching into the single digits with lows in the negative teens.

And take a look at their rain forecast map, and tell me if you notice anything odd.

Just Rename The State “Cali-rado”

I’m trying to understand how this state supreme court ruling complies with the same damned baker’s SCOTUS ruling.

Colorado Baker Who Refused to Make ‘Gender Transition’ Cake Loses Appeal
“We conclude that creating a pink cake with blue frosting is not inherently expressive and any message or symbolism it provides to an observer would not be attributed to the baker,” the ruling said.

If it isn’t “expressive speech” by the baker, then why was it so damned important to make the baker do it?

Now I Know Who Designed I-95N In Jacksonville.

Asshole.

I make a monthly run to Jacksonville, to take my sister to the doctor. Coming back, I have to make… I think it’s six lane changes as every lane turns into exit-only.

TZP Column: Assault Weapons Ban of 2023


HERE WE GO AGAIN
Dementia victim Dianne Feinstein has filed her annual “assault weapon” ban; the Assault Weapons Ban of 2023.

It’s the usual mess, defining “assault weapons” as semi-autos that use detachable magazines and have one of the same ol’ same ol other characteristics: pistol grip, adjustable or detachable stock, grenade launcher, barrel shroud, threaded barrel.

Presumably grenade launchers on pump action shotguns are still cool.

Aretha vs. The Trannies

So now the transgender “women” want to cancel Aretha Franklin. Ain’t gonna happen, nutjobs. Mentally ill losers versus one of the greatest voices in musical history?

Bad move.

Aretha Franklin’s “Natural Woman” Deemed Offensive by Trans Community
Trans activists say Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman” is very offensive to trans women.

I suppose that it’s “offensive” because it reminds them that 1) they ain’t natural, and 2) they ain’t women.

Show Aretha a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Before people who appreciate 1) actual women, and 2) Aretha, kick your delusional asses.

Aesop’s Lost It

Earlier today, I wrote about why I disagree with Aesop about charging Alec Baldwin for killing Halyna Hutchins.

Aesop hates it when people bring up the four basic rules of safe firearms handling.

Hoo boy.

The “Four Rules” have no place in criminal law. Not anywhere, in 50 states of 7 US territories, nor anywhere else on the planet, nor in any legal or criminal code extant.

First, Aesop in correct in one respect: those words are not in § 30-2-3, under which Baldwin is to be charged.

“Involuntary manslaughter consists of manslaughter committed in the commission of an unlawful act not amounting to felony, or in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death in an unlawful manner or without due caution and circumspection.”

However, the prosecutor most certainly can use the Four Rules, commonly accepted standards in the firearm training industry… the firearms industry, for that matter — every new firearm I’ve bought came with a manual with those rules printed in it, every firearm class I’ve taken spells them out, they’ve appeared in virtually every industry magazine I’ve ever read — to describe just how Baldwin acted “without due caution and circumspection.”

Aesop might as well claim that Badlwin shouldn’t be charged because § 30-2-3 doesn’t specifically say not to point a load gun at people and pull the trigger when you don’t even know if it’s loaded. Those words aren’t there either.

“Without due caution and circumspection” are, and the Rules illustrate what due caution and circumspection look like.

Clearly I’ll need to stop visiting Aesop’s blog for a while, until he chills out and regains some of his senses.

I’m So Old, I Remember When I Thought AP Was A Decent News Source

Of course, that was something like 30-40 years ago. Not anymore. Case in point.

A wastewater plant in the middle of Georgia’s largest city spilled partially treated water into the Ocmulgee River after a series of equipment failures in December.

Largest city in Georgia? Atlanta, right? Nope.

WMAZ-TV reports that the Macon Water Authority’s treatment plant released more than 100 million gallons of partially treated water into the river.

Macon is actually the fifth largest city in Georgia. So where did they get that weird idea? Possibly from this report from another source.

A wastewater plant in middle Georgia’s largest city spilled partially treated water into the Ocmulgee River after a series of equipment failures in December.

Awfully close phrasing, dontcha think? Other than “middle of Georgia’s largest city” versus the considerably more accurate “middle Georgia’s largest city.”

Yes, “middle Georgia is a real thing, and Macon is middle Georgia’s largest city.

AP has gotten so bad that they can’t even plagiarize right.

[Update] Five MEGA-Watt Laser Pointer?

Whoa. Someone needs to tell the DOD to shut down their laser weapon development programs and just order these from Amazon.

Hunter Biden ordered a number of products from the auction site Tophatter to be shipped to the home, including a night vision monocular telescope, an anti-police GPS radar detector, a 5-megawatt laser pointer

Hell, I want one of them. Do they run off lithium ion batteries, or plug into the wall. At 5 MW though I’d probably have to tap main power transmission lines for power. Fortunately, there’s line about a quarter mile from here.

Update: I sent an email to the reporter who wrote about the 5MW laser. And he did something I haven’t seen from a reporter in a looong time: he admitted it was a mistake and said he’d fix it.

TZP Column: Baldwin Shooting – A Point Of Disagreement


Baldwin shouldn’t get a free pass on basic knowledge and sense, just because he’s an actor. If he lacks the mental capacity to operate without adult supervision, a judge should so adjudicate him, and warn everyone that it’s crime to let the mental defective touch a firearm.

I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE
I like Aesop’s, of the Raconteur Report, style; most of the time. I often like what he has to say. But in the matter of Alec Baldwin’s negligent killing of Halyna Hutchins, I must respectfully disagree.

[…]
Yes, the armorer is hired for that — supposed — expertise. That’s why almost-armorer Gutierrez-Reed is also facing a manslaughter charge. But…

Screw “industry wide safety safety regulations.” Try basic firearms handling safety rules, upon which those regs should be based.
