Our Lives to Spellcheck

If you’ve read this blog enough, or chatted with me online, you know spelling is NOT my strong suit. Thankfully the lovely Christina who is a HARDCORE grammar Nazi will text me when something on the blog makes her hair stand on end, and I usually can jump online with my phone and fix the error. Still I’ll be reading old posts and find typos galore…sometimes I fix them sometimes I don’t.

So for people who can’t spell you know what some hard words are? “Chechnya”, “Makhachkala”, “Tamerlan Tsarnaev” and “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev”!

A police official source in Makhachkala, Dagestan, told NBC News on Sunday that the Russian internal security service reached out to the FBI last November with some questions about Tamerlan, and handed over a copy of case file on him.

Tsarnaev had first popped up on the local police radar in Dagestan last summer, the source said. During routine surveillance of an individual known to be involved in the militant Islamic underground movement, the police witnessed Tamerlan meet the latter at a Salafi mosque in Makhachkala, the police official said.

It was one of six times in total that surveillance officials witnessed Tsarnaev meeting this militant at the same mosque, according to the police official.

The militant contact later disappeared, the police official said, but so did Tsarnaev before investigators had a chance to speak with him. The FBI never responded, according to the Dagestani police official….Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) asserted Monday that the FBI was unaware of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s six-month visit to Russia because his name was misspelled. But there were some questions about whether the FBI’s inquiry ever reached a stage at which his name would have been fed into the master database for terrorist and other watchlists.

This is the same nonsense as the Time Square Bombing attempt, US officials were warned about dangerous terrorists and they never even made it into the mythical “Terror Watch List”.

Of course boy scouts, US officials, and infants seem to populate the list. I wonder if there is even a single terrorist ON the actual list.

At this rate it is firmly in the “More Harm Than Good” measure. Oh and those anti-gun forces know this, and still want anybody on this bogus list to be denied their rights.

Feel Safer?

    What is disgusting to me is that there was a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about the Boston Scumbag Bombing yesterday, and Susan Collins mentioned something about how we “need to do a better job of Inter-Agency Intelligence Sharing and even Internal Sharing.”

    Hold it. This is THE EXACT SAME THING that was brought up in the 9/11 Commission Hearings a DECADE AGO!

    We spent a TRILLION Dollars on Homeland Security, created Airport Gestapo Child Molesting Perverts in the TSA, can’t Fart w/o being accused of “Biological Warfare,” can’t even visit Canada w/o a Fucking Passport, and now we’re being told that we are where we were on September 10th, 2001?

    I’m not a grammar nazi by any means. As long as I can understand the message, I usually just overlook mistakes. But far too often, on various boards, I see posts that are missing a “didn’t”, a “wasn’t”, a “not”, etc. that changes the intent completely.

    There are several common misspellings that make my skin crawl, such as our national “boarder”.

    Sometimes they are just funny. See “When seconds count, police are minuets away!” in the above post. I’m tellin’ you dude, when Bach and Handel get here, there’ll be hell to pay!
