The Moslem terrorist in New York is apparently bragging about what he did and enjoying the attention he's getting in the hospital. He came into this country on a "diversity visa" and got a green card through the same "program." The terrorist got shot in the butt, which kind of takes away from his "aura" but it hasn't kept him from popping off in the hospital.
Video below explains "diversity visa "and Chucky Schumer's connection to the program.
It was fun seeing the Mayor of New York, who flies all over the world to attend Islamic events, and praises Islam to the skies, doing his little tap dance over this incident. But he isn't the only one in the country who is having a lovefest with Islam.
(Note: the video above has some commentary by James Wesley Rawles.)
It's hard for me to get very interested in this though, it's become so common place. I notice the story of the shooter in Vegas has quietly disappeared, they never did come up with any information on why he did it, did they? Interesting. Maybe it was something they didn't want the American people to know about.
And then, there's this little news article that's quite interesting.
A Shocking Incident in which the culture of India is disrespected by the Police!
Indian man's parents fly to Florida to beat son's wife for being 'disobedient,' police say.
Florida police rescued an Indian woman Saturday who was beaten by her husband and his parents who traveled from India to help assist him with the assault.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said Silky Gaind, 33, called her parents in India to tell them of the abuse. They then called the authorities.
Police said Gaind was being held in the Riverview home by her husband Devbir Kalsi, 33, and his parents Jasbir, 67, and Bhupinder Kalsi, 61, who traveled from India to help their son “counsel and discipline his wife for being disobedient” after he asked for their assistance, according to Fox .
When a deputy arrived at the residence, no one responded to a repeated knock. Then Gaind attempted to open the door and screamed for him to help her and her 1-year-old daughter.
The deputy forced his way in despite Kalsi trying to keep the door closed. While the deputy started to handcuff Kalsi, his parents confronted the officer, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Kalsi and Gaind argued Friday night where he battered her “repeatedly and forcefully,” according to the arrest report. Kalsi’s parents started striking her after Gaind attempted to defend herself. The infant was accidentally struck in the face while Gaind was holding her during the attack, the report stated.
Kalsi was threatened with a knife by Jasbir Kalsi. After the incident, Gaind was locked in a room and her cell phone was taken from her.
"Awful, nobody should go through that," an unidentified neighbor told Fox 13. "It really is heartbreaking. There's a brand new baby. But who beats their wife up and his mother and dad help him? Who does that?"
Devbir and Jasbir Kalsi may face “charges of false imprisonment, child abuse and denying access to 911,” according to the Tampa Bay Times. Devbir Kalsi also could face felony battery charge, and Jasbir Kalsi was accused of “aggravated battery with a deadly weapon,” the paper reported. Bhupinder Kalsi could face “charges of battery domestic violence and failure to report child abuse.”
They were all booked into Hillsborough County Jail and were being held without bond. Fox 13 reported that the three could face deportation back to India. Gaind and her infant were put in a safe place, the sheriff’s office said.
Not a lot on my agenda for today. I have to go to the library in town and pick up some books for my wife. Then over to the next county to return some books to their library. Here's one I got that was really interesting.
If you ever saw Clint Eastwood's two movies about Iwo Jima, this is the book the movie about the Japanese side was based on.
Until I ran across the book on a back shelf in the library, I didn't know it existed. This was written by a Japanese, and translated from the Japanese. It was written for the Japanese consumer, rather than American which makes it all the more unusual, and finally, it was written by a woman. The Japanese have a very ambivalent attitude about World War II. I used to email back and forth with a Japanese housewife, years ago. She lived in Tokyo, her husband was a "salary man" and was almost never home. She had a pet black rabbit to keep her company. She knew nothing about the war, though she was well educated, and she had never heard of people like Saburo Sakai, Japan's greatest Ace to survive the war. When I lived in Japan for 13 months, I found that was pretty common, unless you talked to older people who had experienced the war. That was back in 1980-81, so there were still a lot of people alive , both in Okinawa and the home islands. who had lived through it.
This is a clip from the movie "Eternal Zero" about the Kamikazi. The scene is set in a restaurant, where a group of young men have gathered to plan a trip to Hawaii with their girl friends. One of them has been trying to learn more about his grandfather, who was a Kamikaze. The subject comes up by accident, and the other young men at the table start saying that Kamikaze were terrorists, and how stupid it is that they were willing to die for their country. That gets out of hand. Sorry I couldn't find one with subtitles but you will get the idea.
The movie that tells the other side of the story, the U.S. side, is "Flags of our Fathers." The strange thing about these two movies is that they tell the same story, at the same place, at the same time, from two points of view. So after you have seen one, when you see the other you will instantly recognize the juxtaposition of the two movies, especially where two scenes interact. It's an odd perspective.
Iwo Jima typified the war in the Pacific. The United States lost over 6,000 killed, and 20,000 MIA or wounded. Most of the 26,000 Japanese soldiers and sailors defending the island were killed.
The Iwo Jima monument at Arlington Cemetery is a place that all young Marine Officers visit while doing their initial six months training at Quantico, Virginia.
Just about everyone remembers the photo of the flag being raised on Suribachi, it's one of the most iconic photos of World War II.
The book was really good, and given my family connections to World War II in the Pacific I enjoyed it even more.
My father, circa 1943
My Uncle, 1942.
I'm trying to get some pictures of my father in law, who was a Marine Sgt and fought on Okinawa among other places. My sister in law has a whole shoe box full of photos from that time, but I haven't been able to get her to let me scan any of them yet.
