L.A.'s Rent-A-Mayor Program

Why does hizzonor let the cops beat & kill you? What's he care, he got his!

Photos: Mayor Garcetti's Sweet Silver Lake Pad
Up For Lease For $8,500 A Month

Gentrifying scum too.
The Garcettis plan to maintain ownership of their Silver Lake home, which was purchased in 2011 for $1.4 million according to public records. Prior to that, they lived in the Echo Park area.
I hope you low-information voters are all happy now, right until you look cross-eyed at the police.

Wallowing In It: Same Shit, Seven Yrs. Ago

Nostalgic note: The second item typed & published at Just Another Blog (From L.A.)™, nine days short of seven yrs. ago, concerned the L.A.P.D. beating people in MacArthur Park. (Bet Mac would've approved.)
On a maybe less cynical note, #MyLAPD & the other #MyLocalOinkers are probably the best we'll ever get from #HashtagActivism. #American Spring (as fucking if, you sheep).

In Which We Refrain From Threatening The Mayor (Also A Pig) & Ask One Simple Question

Of course, it's the Mayor's joke acc't., where an ass-licking toady links to press releases & spews feel-good crap, that gov't. of, by & for the cretinous & moronic shall not perish from the earth. The mayor himself is too busy meeting w/ people who actually make a difference in his campaign funds, yada.

(If I am shot, beaten w/in an inch of my life or imprisoned in the near future, you'll know who is to blame.)

#MyLAPD: Cop Kill A Creep, Pow Pow Pow!

One of the reasons they call them pigs (& mean it) is that they are so damn stupid they do things like this & expect to be perceived as Boy Scouts when normal people recognize jack-booted thugs w/ guns wheN they see them:
Or the undercover murderer seen above, probably on his 'phone telling his ugly sow wife he will be late for dinner because he has killed yet another undesirable & boy is there a lotta paperwork.

Couple Dead Guys Rasslin'

Morbid bonus: Cutaway to the equally late "Ms. Elizabeth."
More on yet another I've outlived. (I guess sometimes answered prayers yada.)

Countdown To Outrage: Drei, Zwei, Ein ...

Oh no, look, look!!
Marionville, Missouri Mayor Dan Clevenger* "resigned Monday night for making anti-Semitic comments in the wake of the arrest of white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller and after aldermen voted 4-1 to start the impeachment process," the Springfield News-Leader reports.
Every time an anti-Semite is impeached merely for his deeply held & sincere belief that Jooos are scum, it is exactly like Mozilla's (former) C.E.O. Eich being run out of town on a rail by a vicious liberal-homo mobdeciding on his own to quit like the pathetic weakling he is.

Now we're waiting for Andrew Sullivan to have a couple wks. of hissy fits because the "hard left" ran Mayor C. out of town on a rail for his politically incorrect opinions.

[here we need a Schrödinger-style cat-in-the-box effect (not just harps & that blurry shit this time, please?)representing the quantum state between potential universes as Sullivan makes his decision/decides]

Now we're waiting for Andrew Sullivan to decide that this is absolutely nothing like the Mozilla kerfuffle. Or flapdoodle. In any way. Because.

Both Sides At It

Muslims, undocumented workers, homosexuals, liberals, feminists, intellectuals and African-Americans will increasingly suffer the wrath of vigilante violence as the nation becomes more restive. Liberal institutions, their credibility shredded because of their myopic support for neoliberalism, will become irrelevant. Chauvinism, violent retribution, a perverted Christianity and the celebration of a mythic Anglo-Saxon history will sever sections of the population from reality, enticing them into an American fascism. This is what is coming. It cannot be fought with counterviolence. It can be fought only with ideas. We better prepare.
Violence 1, Ideas 0.

Have we at last found the "hard left" of Andrew Sullivan's fantasies? No wonder he's nervous; they sound well-armed, dangerously organized & not the least bit paranoid.

Today's Telebision Recaps

If nothing else, dig the mustachioed loon in the last 30 secs. of this one, at (10:00).
We also have a more than vague suspicion that if these wretched old idiots weren't wearing cowboy hats they'd be more likely to get the fiery deaths they so want & deserve.

Bush Reality Syndrome

Rancid little murdering shit. There truly is no justice.

Open Letter To iNternet Drones Everywhere About Their Stupid Telebision Recaps

Shut the fucking hell up & stop wasting space/electrons w/ recaps of tee vee shows. Jee-sus! Who cares, & why in hell would they?

A clue (GET ONE!!): People who give a shit have seen the program. (Or haven't yet & don't want spoilers.)  People who don't won't waste their time reading about shit they'll never see, & if they are wasting their time, are they really the types of eyeballs you greedy pigs need clicking on your inane site?

Subtle suggestion: If you don't have anything to type, or about which to type, just shut up & go away already. (Just Another Blog [From L.A.]™ being the exception that proves this rule.)

G'wan, I Dare Ya!

A.B.C.,1,2,3 ...

Another (The same? Probably.) Bogus Car.
Here the priorities of government are clear: Protection & service for the monied & powerful & their property & interests. Were it otherwise there'd be a bogus prowl car in front of this reporter's dump keeping me & my junk safe 24 fucking hrs. a day, wouldn't there?

The sheer gall of essentially advising everyone that they are worthless scum who deserve nothing but high prices, cruddy food & ugly clothing that exemplifies entropy makes me want to liberate plenty of consumer goods from Ralphs & Ross. Minimum, slash the fucking tires on that black & white affront to equality.

Easter Sunday/Hitler's Birthday
Hippie-Dippie Reefer Report

Harmonic convergence: So Jesus, Hitler, Henry Kissinger, the Pope & a reefer-smokin' dame on a higher spiritual plane walk into a bar.

Nope, that's it, save the more than blindingly obvious. Give it up for Friedrich Nietzsche!Slightly subtler.People still listen to entire songs all at once? Really. In the 21st century, w/ time running out & all?

Put Down That Nativism!

Meanwhile, at the National Review, V.D. Hanson is being taken to task by Blaise Pascal, who is defending the Spanish version of the Inquisition.
It is surprising Dr Hanson is ignorant of the Inquisition and it's purpose. He uses the old anti -Catholic bromides of the Church of England. The Inquisition was set up as a court to try people who were accused of heresy and religious crimes.Before the Inquisition was set -up people were at the mercy and whim of the local prince, magistrate or bishop to mete out justice. Most people who went before the Inquisition were exonerated. I suggest Dr. Hanson put down his 19th century nativism and read Dr. Thomas Madden of St. Louis University on the real Inquisition.
Totally sic, btw.

None of the Inquisitorial revisionists, however, seem to think Dr. Hanson is a nut when he types this sort of thing:
Hounding out people with different views is seen by the Left as a necessary means to achieve its supposedly noble goals — just like the Spanish Inquisitioners who claimed God was on their side as they went after religiously “incorrect” Jews, Muslims, and heretics.
Break out the thumbscrews, it's party time!!

Today In Tiresome & Trivial

Oh you awful stupid people, fer hevvin's sake, you have me standing up for a celebrity cook* now.

Nonetheless, it's bullshit on parade. Celeb Lawson has never been charged, let alone convicted, so just LEAVE NIGELLA ALONE!!
New Zealand officials have granted a special visa to Nigella Lawson, who has admitted using cocaine, in an apparent confirmation that she has been blocked from entering the United States, it was reported on Sunday

US authorities declined to specify why Lawson was stopped from flying from London to Los Angeles late last month. However, in a statement to the Herald on Sunday newspaper, Immigration New Zealand said the celebrity cook was not allowed to enter the US, which meant she required special permission to work in New Zealand.

“As Ms Lawson has been excluded from another country, namely the United States, she was ineligible to be granted a visa to enter New Zealand unless given a special direction,” Immigration New Zealand said. “A special direction was considered and granted, and subsequently her visa application was approved.”

Lawson, 54, admitted, in a court case last year, that she had used cocaine and cannabis. British newspapers have speculated that she was prevented from flying to the US, where she stars in a cooking talent show The Taste, because of her admission of drug use.

A US embassy spokeswoman in London confirmed Lawson was denied permission to fly to Los Angeles but declined to say why, citing privacy reasons. Lawson is in New Zealand to film an advertisement.
What's w/ the Kiwis here? They won't let the United Snakes bring nukes w/ them when they visit, but they'll follow the lead of the small-minded pricks at ICE?

Sod the "English-speaking peoples," & the Frogs too. What, AFP, Lawson can't be a bleeding "chef?"

Comments are enjoyable. It's nice to be one w/ the world in despising America:
Perhaps only in the world's capital of double-standards, the USA, which reportedly registers among the world's highest cocaine and marijuana use, whose jails are overflowing with recreational drug users, would entry be denied for admitting to occasional recreational drug use.
I live in Calgary, but I find the experience at US Homeland Security at the Calgary International Airport so unpleasant that I have no intention of visiting the US again. There you go, I've said it. Now I expect to be placed on a US 'no fly' list.

Funny all this, because almost invariably the American people are very pleasant and friendly. [Aw, shucks. — M.B.] Maybe they should ask their government not to visit the consequences of its paranoia on friendly innocents.
Or maybe we should smash the state.
*Celebrity cooks: Generally classified between incurable lepers & curable lepers.

10¢ Psych Dep't.: Dr. Freud On Women & Envy

Latest right-wing nutjob-heartthrob flash-in-the-pan superstar Michele Fiore, Assemblywoman of Nevada's Fourth District, likes these pictures so much she posted both of them in her photo gallery twice.
Keeps forgetting who & what she is?
The doctor is in.
Dr. Freud says: "O.K., zure, all uff mein concepts und zeories are antiquated horseshit, but zese people are zo zimple, zo dense, zo 19th century. C'mon, you goink to look at zat und deny ze whole 'penis envy' thing? Hah! Fits zem like a gluff. Zometimes ein AR-15 iss not chust a cigar."

Dr. Freud refused any long distance (like, from the grave) diagnosis of this image of our new heroine.
Seems nice, doesn't she? Very nice. (Too nice?) Respects the law, as we already know.
In a transcript obtained by Ralston Flash, Fiore, who called herself a “conservative, Catholic, gun-toting, second amendment, strong-ass woman,”  called Wheeler her “friend” and said that she stood by him. This after she called for Assembly Minority Leader Pat Hickey’s resignation after he said that it would be a “great year for Republicans” since minorities and young people wouldn’t be turning out to vote in a non-presidential race.

Besides supporting Wheeler (who set off a media storm in late October by saying he would vote for slavery if his constituents supported it), Fiore said she carries her gun with her like her underwear.

“And I can tell you, as someone that carries a firearm on me like my panties and bra, I do break the law because I generally carry my gun in places where they say is a gun-free zone, because I’m not going to be a victim of a stupid law.”

She also said Republicans would “arm our teachers, K through 12.”

Fiore defended her use of swear words on the Assembly floor and said Chancellor Dan Klaich “has his head so far where it shouldn’t be.” And speaking of anatomy, Fiore told the assembled Republicans that they were due for some changes.

“We have to either grow a set of brass ovaries or a set of testicles, whichever you prefer, and if you don’t have a set I’ll borrow my brass ovaries. But we have to do it.”

Fiore reiterated that she and Wheeler are “not politicians”, but just regular people.

“We are real people, hard-working, and we don’t have a filter. So if something comes out wrong, something comes out.”
If you can put up w/ Assemblywoman Fiore for the full thing, do you think she might have had a brew or three at the big Bundy B-B-Q before going on the telly?Unsuccessful candidate for Congress in 2010, & apparently certifiable.
Suddenly I get it: Assemblywoman Fiore just wants to be right in front, guns blazing, maybe astride her four-wheeler when the shit finally comes down & that ex-sheriff puts all the women in front to die first, thereby demonstrating the evil of federal bureaucracy.

P.S.: Show bidnis too. Please shoot me now, Assemblywoman, I'm ready to go.

When Both Sides Do It ...

The first ones our tribe will purge will be the white liberals.

See Josh Marshall (an image of whom accompanies the Just Another Blog [From L.A.]™ On-Line Dictionary definition of objective weenie, & who's recently been taking reader submissions about what awful stupid ignorant fucking racists their parents all are) hemming & hawing that just because, per a reader, "My wife and I have Republican friends and neighbors. It never takes any of our conservative friends very long in a conversation before they begin making disparaging remarks about ethnic minorities. It’s usually only a matter of minutes." it doesn't necessarily mean that "this applies to all or most conservatives". O.K., perhaps not every last damn one of them, maybe, but most for sure.

Starting to believe that "objectivity" & "objectivism" may be more closely related than previously thought.

Here's the entire submission, w/ our emphases, excellent anecdata (or a Classic Example) of what we might (because it's all so damn funny, y'know) call Exception-That-Proves-The-Rule Racism.
And wait, further confirming anecdata:
You think this may be what the hell's wrong w/ those common clay cretins in Kansas?

A Recent Dumb-Ass Statement

What the fuck-tuck-tucking hell, Courtney Love? Deaf? Drugs? Derp? Brain damage from anesthesia during all those operations?
[I]n a recent video interview Love discussed her antipathy towards the music of Bruce Springsteen, explaining that her main issue was one of instrumentation. “Saxophones,” she said, “don’t belong in rock'n’roll.”
Yes, you inane drone, I'm as antipathetic toward B.S. as anyone but it's not the instrumentation that makes B.S. a suckfest of Broadway illusions & approximations of the rock.

Mme. Hole has made her video "private". Chicken.

Probably pertinent; the late Derf on the horn was about as "rock'n'roll" as one gets.
Plus which:
But there are so many more, too: the vibrancy of Junior Walker’s playing on Shotgun, for instance [...] or what Robert Christgau called the "solitary new-thing saxophone" of Steve Mackay on the Stooges' Funhouse. Think how those Little Richard records would sound without the sax.

Two Parties, Two Classes

Two Americas & two kinds of glasses:
No wonder "compromise" is anathema to them: Useless/unaccomplished
(It’s worth noting that although Blackburn served in Congress when the GOP held the House, the Senate and the White House, the single piece of legislation I could find that she had signed into law was the Wool Suit Fabric Labeling Fairness and International Standards Conforming Act of 2006. She has also successfully sponsored resolutions renaming various Tennessee Post Office buildings as well as [to her credit] one honoring the late Issac Hayes.)
Tenn. Rep. Marsha Blackburn has a starkly dichotomic vision of our future:
The comment drew a sarcastic rebuttal from White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer, who tweeted “All class in the GOP.” Read more.
In all her respect for property rights she or her Twit-flunkie couldn't be bothered to hit the shift key for "Solo®?"

Or is "Red Solo® cup" some secret redneck horse crap?
If anyone listens to the above noise let me know what in hell it's all about.
