Those Ignorant Fools In Texas


Probably were neither ignorant, nor fools. They probably knew exactly what L’il Ahmed, aka “Clock Boy” was up to. They might have been better off ignoring the little shit, but that’s arguable.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s new issue of Inspire magazine includes a shout out to the “Clock Boy” while slamming President Obama’s programs to counter violent extremism.

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was arrested at his Texas high school in 2015 for bringing a homemade clock to school encased in what resembled a small briefcase. The device was seized by his English teacher and the cops were called. He was not charged with any crime.

“Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great,” Obama tweeted in support of boy. A month later, Ahmed met Obama during White House Astronomy Night event on the South Lawn of the White House.

Of course President Feckless, not nearly as smart as the average Texan, fell for this hook, line, and sinker. Even after it was revealed that Clock Boy didn’t even build a clock. He merely took an old Radio Shack clock radio out of it’s plastic case and stuffed it into a brief case. He wanted to create an incident and that’s just what he did.

Once again President Me Me Me, jumped into a controversial issue before the facts were known. Thus, to people who followed the story, he was twice the fool.

The country, as the saying goes, is in the very best of hands.

Don’t even start me on the latest security theater by the TSA. A government agency with unionized employees that can’t even keep their staffing at minimum levels.

At every level, this administration shows complete incompetence and disdain for the voters and taxpayers.

After a long career as a field EMS provider, I'm now doing all that back office stuff I used to laugh at. Life is full of ironies, isn't it? I still live in the Northeast corner of the United States, although I hope to change that to another part of the country more in tune with my values and beliefs. I still write about EMS, but I'm adding more and more non EMS subject matter. Thanks for visiting.
