We did not dodge a bullet, we dodged an idiot.
We are very lucky, We avoided what could have been a very deadly event."
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg
One lesson I have learned about life is that no matter how bad things are for you, there is always someone who has it worse.
Another lesson that I have learned is that person who is worse off than you, sometimes they can accomplish things that are quite surprising.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I give you Sheila Radziewicz
There is a ton of coverage on the Times Square Bomber but what irks me about this bomber is that he was given every opportunity to make something of himself.
From the NYT.
They took their places in the wood-paneled courtroom, 58 people from 32 countries. They listened as a federal magistrate banged the gavel and said it was “a wonderful day for the United States”— the day they would become Americans.
The magistrate talked about Thomas Jefferson and told the group that they could run for office — only the presidency and the vice presidency were off limits, according to a tape recording of the proceedings in a Bridgeport, Conn., courtroom last year, on April 17. On her instructions, they raised their right hands and repeated the oath of citizenship.
In January 2002 Mr. Shahzad obtained an H1B visa, a coveted status meant for highly skilled workers and good for three years, with a possible extension. Records show that Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetics giant, applied for a visa for Mr. Shahzad; he worked there as a temporary clerk in the accounting department in 2001, through an employment agency called Accountants Inc., according to a timecard found in his trash.
Do you know how hard it is to get a H1B visa let alone citizenship in America? It's a f**king pain the ass. I have a friend of mine who has stay out of the country for two years in order to better their chances at getting a green card.
This piece of s**t, I am not saying his name, got everything he needed an immigrant desires from America. An education, residency and a place to raise a family.
Life wasn't perfect for him. It has been reported that he was part of the teeming masses that were in foreclosure. And like many people he was unemployed.
But are these reasons to go up and attempt to kill a massive amount of people in Times Square?
According to reports he was unremarkable, but even if though the POS got his MBA from a lower tier schools and his work experience wasn't at Goldman Sachs, in certain parts of the world that will take you very far.
All the POS had to do was pull up stakes and star new somewhere else. With his background he could have been a super star in his homeland.
But does he do that? NO! F**ktard goes back home and decides to spend time a club Taliban and learns, no, make attempts to learn how to be a terrorist. And F**King fails.
I don't know what the f**k they teach these a**holes but they have to stop it. I mean end it now because obviously they are not doing it right.
If watch a lot of crime films like the Getaway , Reservoir Dogs and Heat, that after pulling off a caper that attracts a lot of unwanted, you get immediately get the hell out of dodge. Yuu don't wait over two days to leave.
This guy was a numb nut of the highest order, he left his house keys in the car bomb and had to get the spare apartment keys from his landlord.
One can only hope is that the longer they keep up this up, sooner they will end up blowing themselves up.
Which brings me back Sheila Radziewic. This woman has arms. Yet she is on her way to getting a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. This is a woman who was destined to have a rough life. But does she give in to resentment or anger? Does she give in to despair?
She began living on her own at 19. She lives in Salem now and helps women navigate the court system as a local advocate coordinator for HAWC, Healing Abuse Working for Change, which helps victims of domestic violence.
At 23, Radziewicz earned her driver's license. The state helped fashion a car for her that she drives with her feet.
One of the things that pisses me off is when someone gets everything in life and then does something really stupid. This is why this POS really makes me angry and I hope they make an example of him. The ramifications of his actions are going to be felt by innocent hard working people who are trying to make a life of their own.
It is also imperative we do everything we can to discourage this type of activity for own good.
Bruce Lee once said that the most dangerous person to fight is a person who has no background in fighting. This is because those types of people are completely unpredictable and have a strong tendency to do anything. This pretty much applies to clean skins.
America needs to send a message to potential clean skins that it is in their best interest to stay clean.
