Wan To Know The Real meaning of Irony?



Karl Marx died and was buried in the UK in 1883. The Father of Communism, the man of the working class has a monument that's 6 ft. wide, and including the bust is about 10 ft tall.

And the icing on the cake?

If you want to actually view it up close, well, Capitalism gets the last laugh because you're going to have to pay $6.00 !!!

Political Corruption; Hillary first, Sheldon Silver second

Did Someone say Collusion????
This informative little article actually comes from the Old Gray Lady itself, the New York Times no less back in 2015.

You can't make this shit up. Well the Democraps make up a lot of shit, but that's expected from them. Come to think of it even a lot of Republ-I-Cants come up with their fair share of Bullshit.

It's all just politics 101 in 21st century America.

On Sheldon Silver and Getting what he Deserves

Convicted last year in Federal Court on charges of corruption, his conviction was overturned due to a decision by the SCOTUS in an unrelated case. So he won't be going to Club Fed any time soon, however in the brief article from the website NYPD Confidential by Leonard Levitt Copyright 2017 dated 7-17-2017, his woes are far from over;

LAMENTING SHELDON SILVER
For those lamenting the overturn of former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s corruption conviction, don’t despair. The feds of the Southern District will bleed him. They’ll try him again. And if they lose, probably again.

There is precedent for this. Back in the day, then U.S.Attorney for the Southern District Robert Morgenthau tried his longtime nemesis, Roy Cohn, three times. He lost all three times, but Cohn didn't exactly come out on top.

Even if the feds never convict Silver, his trials will cost him millions. And for Silver, isn’t money what it’s all about?


Which seems appropriate to me. Even if he remains free, he won't get to enjoy the fruits of his extracurricular political endeavors. Nor will he be able to regain his position in the N.Y. State Assembly.

Concealed Carry Challenge Thrown out at Texas University

Chalk up another loss for the anti-concealed carry crowd.

Then again, the challenge was brought by several college professors. The type who think that their opinions are always right.

500th Post...

...And what could be more apropos, given their prevalence over the years here at Blackthorn, than a Drone Post!

Whether for good or for ill, despite attempts to both promote and restrict them, they're here to stay and their uses will simply continue to multiply.
