various thefts

Theft ... taking something that does not rightfully belong to the one taking it.

In Amsterdam, police say art thieves walked away with paintings by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin, Lucien Freud and Meyer de Haan. It is one of the largest art thefts in years in the Netherlands.

In the United States, there is chatter along the highways and byways of the social media that rioting should or might occur if President Barack Obama does not win next month's election decision against his challenger, Mitt Romney. Both sides of the discussion seem to feel that if the other sides wins it will be on account of an as-yet-unspecified theft. While hard economic times with their endlessly grinding dollops of gnawing, depressing news are a fine recipe for rioting, still the source of the suggestions seems light-weight at best. Not that lightweight stuff cannot become a heavy-weight reality, but at the moment ...?

  1. Coming from Alex Jones the whole proposition is very unlikely. Rioting itself is preposterous given it would involve Americans leaving their TV screens and dead end occupations to actually visit the streets (on foot,imagine that) and voice their discontent. No they will just continue to thump their Lazy Boy arm chairs and shout their displeasure at the glass teat because their choice of millionaire corporate shills did not become fearless leader.
