Survived the weekend (Updated)

I used to joke about that—surviving from one day to another.

I’m into my 10th day being sick. There have been a lot of ups and downs. For the last two days, I’ve incrementally been better. Overall yesterday was good. Yesterday evening not so good.

Today, my goal is a good day and a good evening.

Update (9/27/2011).  Great day yesterday. Went to the doc yesterday afternoon and got some different meds.  Felt great until it was time to go to bed.  Couldn’t sleep.  Didn’t doze off until after 2:00AM, and then intermittently.  Note-to-self: don’t take meds in the evening.

One day at a time.

At least, I’m feeling good enough to post something on the blog.

There are few things more frightening than cops with guns.  One of those few things are cops with SAMs.  Yes that’s right. The ability to shoot down an aircraft “if necessary.”  I can’t see the NYPD hauling around the large caliber anti-aircraft guns that would be effective, so, reading between the lines, that means SAMs.

I wonder if these are some of the ones missing from Libya?

NEW YORK (AP) — The chief of the New York Police Department says city police could take down a plane if necessary.

Commissioner Ray Kelly tells CBS’ “60 Minutes” that after the Sept. 11 attacks, he decided the city couldn’t rely on the federal government alone. He set about creating the NYPD’s own counter-terrorism unit. He says the department is prepared for multiple scenarios and could even take down a plane.

Kelly didn’t divulge details but said “obviously this would be in a very extreme situation.” 

This comes from the police department that needed 50 rounds to kill an unarmed man on his wedding day. There are other incidents by the NYPD when their officers killed an unarmed man.
Wonder what they’d do if Grandpa’s Piper Cub strayed off course over NYC?  Knowing the itchy trigger fingers of the cops in NYC…Boom!
Oh yes, this from the city who are afraid to allow their citizens the means to defend themselves but acquire heavy artillery for themselves.  More hypocrisy from Mayor Bloomberg.

Obama has been out campaigning and claiming to be a “class warrior.”  Of course we know what that is. Obama’s the enemy of the Eeeevile rich or anyone who still has a job, and an enemy of corporations and small businesses who provide those jobs.

Glenn McCoy has this view of Obama’s travels.
