ALVIN S. SIMPLETON SAYS CRIMINALS AINT TOO BRIGHT

Sometimes when reading a story in the newspapers, I have to ask myself because I can’t ask the folks in the story What in hell were they thinking when they did something stupid.

In a small towns in my home state of Tennessee, a dude shot himself in the face while cleaning his .22 caliber rifle. He supposedly emptied the rifle before he started cleaning it, only he musta forgot the bullet in the chamber. He said he had been drinking but he wasn’t drunk. My question is how did he manage to pull the trigger while cleaning the gun?

I’m glad I dont smoke. Two inmates at the prison in Middle Tennessee escaped, stole cigarettes and tobacco from a store and then return to the prison. Now they musta known when the authorities found the cigarettes and tobacco, they would know them fools had done escaped and come back. Course, now they got some extra time for escaping and burglary.

The cigarette habit is truly bad for you.

Criminals, I have always said, aint too bright.

ALVIN S. SIMPLETON SAYS ONLY IN AMERICA

I dont know whether to cry from shame or be bold like a man and admit that I agree with Sarah Palin on something. She is right when she says the picture on the cover of Newsweek magazine is sexist. There, now I said it.

What I want to know is how in hell did Sarah Palin become the governor of Alaska? Other than being the governor and being stupidly select as a vice-presidential candidate, what has she contributed to  the anything or anybody. She done wrote that book “Going Rogue: An American Life.” She right bout one thing: hers is an American life cause only in America could she, like a lotta others, become famous for being famous and get a lotta money for writing a book bout, well, hell, I dont know what it’s bout since I aint read it and dont plan to.

I aint bout to make her rich by buying her book. I gotta say, though, she aint dumb. No dumb person could get a publisher to publish a book bout nothing, or get interviewed by Oprah and Barbara Walters.

She burnin up the news these days. I, for one, will be glad when she flame out.

She proves once more that only in America can a nobody become a celebrity for being famous.

ALVIN S. SIMPLETON SAYS THE CYBER WAR IS ON

I dont know ifn there is any commonsense bout anything got to do with computers. But it show do make sense that our adversaries would try to get into our computers. I mean, man, aint they some real secret stuff in there?

Story in the Washington Post on Wednesday, November 11, say China hacked into Federal Government computers. Course, the Chinese say they did no such thing. I imagine ifn anybody were to ask a Federal Government employee whose job it is to spy on other nations by hacking their computers, he or she would deny doing any such thing.

Commonsense say to me China probably aint the only one doing some hacking of the computers of the US of A. And I show hope we hacking computers in some of our adversarial nations.

Please, US of A dont get behind in the cyber war spying.

ALVIN S. SIMPLETON SAYS WITCHES ARE REAL

I dont believe in witches. ‘Course here in these United States in the 21st century,  witches dont exist, or at least we aint burning none of ’em.

I can tell you, though, that in Africa, them witches are for real.

Back in June of this year, folks in a village in Kenya burned alive some old folks, a woman and  five men because they had been accused of using witchcraft on a small boy who walked about in the night and couldn’t speak the next morning except to one of the so-called witches.

This horror aint confined to Kenya. In Nigeria in October, a pastor of a church accused a boy of being a witch. The father tried to pour acid down the boy’s throat to drive out the witch. The boy died from the acid spilled on his face and body and poured down his throat.

Driving out witches is done in the name of Christianity, and we sometime wonder why Christianity gets such a bad reputation.

And I wonder if the folks who doing these things realize it gives mother Africa a bad name?

Lord, I hope somebody, some day, some where in Africa brings some sense to those crazy folks.
