Trending Now On Twitter

Life in these United Snakes, as we type:
Do Twitterers vote more or less (Please!) than the average American idiot? One can but hope the N.S.A. or whoever is monitoring us these days has a full & complete record of everyone who used #MyGenitaliaIn4Words.

Larger theme: No clue about over half of the trending above, & no interest in what I'm vaguely conscious of, like "MTV" or "Linux".

And please don't clue me in, it can only embarrass you.

Can you believe this Kinky Friedman country classic is 42? (It has been an eternity, hasn't it?)
[NB: GRISLY IMAGES in video]Sadly easy to believe it's been 49 yrs. since Charles Whitman* popularized school shootings & massacres (Stabbing his mother & then his wife while she slept before goin' shootin' was not at all original, however.) & that masscree-in'
Mr. Whitman's arsenal
continues unabated to this very day (yesterday, if you're picking nits) in these United Snakes ... uh, lemme check the news before making any final massacre pronouncements.
*This reporter has always feltsincerely believed that having the same legal ("legal" not being the same as real) first (Christian) name as Whitman & having attended Whitman College was absolutely a signal from Gawd in Heaven Above. A signal of what I've no idea, never having been an Eagle Scout or a Marine.

Cowards & Cretins

More On Sheriff John*

As noted below, Sheriff Hanlin of Douglas County, Oregon, thinks he's a constitutional lawyer. Maybe he can get work lawyering, because his sheriffing is not so hot.

Editor's note: Douglas County, Ore., Sheriff John Hanlin acknowledged this evening that there has been inconsistency in the number of fatalities and injuries reported in the Umpqua Community College shooting but failed to give an explanation. The injury toll, originally as high as 20, has dropped to 7 as of 5 pm PT on Wednesday. Earlier, the Oregon Attorney General said 13 people are dead but police revised that number to 10. It's unclear if the shooter is counted in that number. - Jillian

*Not this one.

"Sad Tragedy", "Thoughts & Prayers"

Go fuck yourselves, platitude-spouting cretins! I refer especially to Sheriff Hanlin of Douglas County, Oregon, who is seemingly a one-man self-appointed Supreme Court:
Note dumbo can't find an address for the V-P, but just sends it to the White House.
Perhaps Sheriff Shithead thinks Biden's the real Prez 'cause he's a honky.
Two years ago, though, Hanlin was among a group of Oregon sheriffs decrying efforts made by the Obama administration after the massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

In a letter penned to Vice President Joe Biden on Jan. 15, 2013, Hanlin issued a “formal request that you NOT tamper with or attempt to amend the 2nd Amendment.”

“Gun control is NOT the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings,” Hanlin wrote. “Any actions against, or in disregard for our U.S. Constitution and 2nd Amendment rights by the current administration would be irresponsible and an indisputable insult to the American people.”

Praising federal law enforcement Thursday for the help his office received, Hanlin two years ago pledged to refuse to enforce any federal gun laws he believed ran counter to the Second Amendment.

“Any federal regulation enacted by Congress or by executive order of the President offending the Constitutional rights of my citizens shall not be enforced by me or by my deputies, nor will I permit the enforcement of any unconstitutional regulations or orders by federal officers within the borders of Douglas County Oregon,” continued Hanlin, writing one month after a gunman killed 20 children and six adult staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Drooling fucking asshole. Let's see him shot in the streetrecalled from office like the rabid dog he is. Ball's in your court, Douglas County.

Will It Go 'Round In Circles?

Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky? You bet your ass it will. At 0430 today, just as I was hitting the sack, an L.A.P.D. chopper started orbiting this sector for about two hrs.
A man armed with a knife and holed up inside an apartment unit in Koreatown was taken into custody Thursday by police.
It was not immediately known what time the suspect was taken into custody. Police were dispatched to the location in the 200 block of South Normandie Avenue at 3 a.m., Officer Rosario Herrera of the LAPD’s Media Relations Section said.
Earlier, paramedics dispatched nearby at 12:46 a.m. to the 500 block of South Normandie Avenue on a reported stabbing call, took a person to an area hospital, said Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
That person’s condition was not immediately known, Scott said.

Announcing the Acceptable Ads program

Hi, it's Michael, the creator of AdBlock. Pardon the interruption!

For years I have wanted to help make it easy for you to see useful ads and block annoying ones. I am excited to tell you that it's finally happening.

AdBlock is now participating in the Acceptable Ads program. Acceptable Ads defines strict guidelines to identify non-annoying ads*, which AdBlock now shows by default. This way, you can help support your favorite websites -- and if you still want to block every ad, you can disable this easily.

Want more details?

I think you'll really like the change. Happy surfing!


PS: Why now? Well, I have always shared similar goals for the Web with the ad blocker Adblock Plus, who created the Acceptable Ads program. But I did not like the fact that they also control the program, because they are supported by some Acceptable Ads advertisers. Now, Adblock Plus will be transferring custodianship of Acceptable Ads to an impartial group of experts. I love this idea -- in fact, it was my wife Katie’s suggestion! Due to this change, I'm happy for AdBlock to join the program. As a result, I am selling my company, and the buyer is turning on Acceptable Ads. My long-time managing director will keep working with the new company. I believe this is a great thing for you users.

It's been an honor to make the Web a better place for you! :)
The above horseshit opened in its own fucking tab w/o being asked. Had I paid this dipshit Michael one penny for his extension I'd be so angry I'd do something about it; in the meantime, sell-out Michael, get back on your corner & leave me the hell out of your world of bullshit & "acceptable" ads!
*No such thing. The very concept of advertising annoys the living hell out of this reporter & every decent humanoid in this world of shit & pain. As does typing those stupid ":)" things.

Ranch Hands

Summer's gone & so is September, except for this monthed (but not dated) picture to remind you how awful everything was fifty yrs. ago this month, is right fucking now, & shall always be. Forever.
This September 1965 file photo shows four "Ranch Hand" C-123 aircraft spraying liquid defoliant on a
suspected Viet Cong position in South Vietnam. During the Vietnam War, Air Force C-123 planes sprayed
millions of gallons of herbicides over the jungles of Southeast Asia to destroy enemy crops and tree cover.
The military stopped the spraying by early 1971, but some Air Force Reserve units continued to fly the former
spray planes until the early 1980s.

No idea what that last factoid is supposed to mean, but there's no explaining the U.S.A.F. or the AP.

CEO Updates
An Ode to Courage:
Innovators are often put down because people are scared and they don’t understand. We are bold innovators and sending big waves into motion and we will not apologize for that because we love you enough to give you this gift. We know you are amazing, special, and unique individuals and most likely would never shout that from the rooftops. The people who know you will though…they choose to be around you and in your life and support you even when you don’t like yourself. We have come so far as a society but in a digital world we are becoming so disconnected and lonely. You deserve better and to have more abundance, joy, and real authentic connections. You deserve to make better decisions with more information to protect your children and your biggest assets. You have worked so hard to get the reputation you have among the people that know you. As innovators we want to make your life better and have the opportunity to prove how great it feels to be loved by so many in a public space. We are a positivity app launching in November 2015. Whether you love us or our concept or not; we still welcome everyone to explore this online village of love and abundance for all.
Did some nasty upper middle-class pig say "online village of love and abundance for all"? Reaching for my Himmlerian revolverCalling for a psychologist for these peeple's vast trove of issues as I type! (In all honesty, I can't wait to type "You suck, I hate you, please die" all over someone's pathetic existence.)

And getting a distinct Gwenyth Paltrow feeling about these two peeples.

Alternately from Mr. Williamson (This is S.B.W. II, a/k/a Rice Miller, for those wondering.) who seems to have quite a handle on this stuff (as indicated by the album title to the right) shut your festering gobs you twits!

Federal Crimes

No idea what one could get from a mail box (Birthday cash from Nana? Who else sends anything important/valuable by the U.S.P.S. these days?) but I s'pose it beats violent crime.

Federal Waste, Fraud & Abuse: Ray Bradbury's F.B.I. file. Absorb this lesson well:
Abso-fucking-lutely no one is to be trusted, ever.
Compare & contrast Mr. Bradbury's statement w/ the paranoia of the F.B.I. informants below.
Anyone can squeal, at any time. "Informants" actually contacted the F.B.I. to bitch & moan that Ray Bradbury was subversive, opposed to the Vietnam mess, had "ridiculed the U.S. Gov't.", yada yada.

And beyond Bradbury, a comsymp cabal of science fiction writers predicting that World War III might not be winnable. Imagine!

You'll note two names below are not redacted. I assume that's because, like the man they thought they'd ratted out, they're dead now. (Or were they simply proud of their paranoia? And why do they both have my initials?)
1336 North Benedict Canyon Road
Los Angeles, California (4/10/59) 

MARTIN A. BERKELEY, a self admitted former member of the CP in New York City and Los Angeles, California, and who has previously testified under oath before the HCUA on April 10, 1959, advised that BRADBURY was one of the more prominent writers of science fiction in the United States.

He also felt BRADBURY was probably sympathetic with certain pro-Communist elements in the WGAw. He stated BRADBURY, during a meeting of Screen Writers Guild (SWG), now known as WGAw, entered into a discussion of a resolution propounded for the membership as to whether or not to keep CP-members and those writers who had invoked the Fifth Amendment from becoming members of the SWG.

BERKELEY reported that BRADBURY, during the course of the discussion, rose to his feet and shouted "Cowards and McCarthyites" when the resolution was discussed. BERKELEY stated it has been his observation that some of the writers suspected of having Communist backgrounds have been writing in the field of science fiction and it appears that science fiction may be a lucrative field for the introduction of Communist ideologies. He noted that some of BRADBURY's stories have been definitely slanted against the United States and its capitalistic form of Government. [sic]

LA T-3:(1/5/59)

Informant observed that Communists have found fertile opportunities for development; for spreading distrust and lack of confidence in American institutions in the area of science fiction writing. Informant declared that a number of science fiction writers have created illusions with regard to the impossibility of continuing world affairs in an organized manner now or in the future through the medium of futuristic stories concerned with the potentialities of science.

Informant advised that individuals such as RAY BRADBURY are in a position to spread poison concerning institutions in general and American institutions in particular. He noted that individuals such as BRADBURY have reached a large audience through their writings which are generally published in paper backed volumes in large quantities. Informant stated that the general aim of these science fiction writers is to frighten the people into a state of paralysis or psychologica1 incompetence bordering on hysteria which would make it very possible to conduct a Third World War in which the American people believe could not be won since their morale had been
seriously destroyed. 

The informant observed that this appeal taken by the science fiction writers sympathetic to Communist ideology, is similar to the approach taken by a small number of scientists who hold that it is impossible to conceive of war without threatening the isolation of the Universe. [sic]

901 Hermosa Avenue
Redondo Beach, California 
(May 1, 1953)

BUTTREY advised that BRADBURY, during the course of a talk before the Southwest Manuscriptors, a writers group, on November 21, 1952, at Clark Stadium, Hermosa Beach, ridiculed the United States Government and the HCUA hearings. Informant described BRADBURY as a science fiction writer, whose work has appeared in numerous magazines and books.
Seriously. Some two-bit asshole in Redondo Beach called the F.B.I. because some dirty pinko/fairy dared ridicule the United States Gov't., a bureau of which was ridiculous enough to record & keep this paranoid idiocy, while denying the existence of the Mafia. Ridiculous? No, completely absurd!
