Today In Trailer Trash

Wow, got to use this twice this mo.
Bloated divorceé & Gov. of Oklahoma Mary Fallin busted.
A mobile home belonging to the daughter of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin will be removed from its parking spot on the grounds of the governor’s mansion after it was found to be in violation of zoning laws, the governor said on Wednesday.

Christina Fallin, 28, has been living in the travel trailer near the state capitol since April and will vacate the property by Sunday.

The governor said her daughter would be welcome to live inside the mansion while she looks for a more permanent arrangement.

"It has been a blessing to have her close by and, like any parent, I love her, am proud of her and am happy to have her stay with her family," Fallin said.

Local broadcaster KFOR took aerial photos of the trailer, which was hooked up to utility connections on the mansion grounds. Fallin discounted suggestions that her daughter's utilities were being paid by taxpayers.
Really? I'd love to see a copy of the daughter's utility bills.
"Yesterday, after we received a question about regulations, I asked my staff to double check if there might be any codes or zoning rules concerning personal trailers," Fallin said.

"We found that the Capitol-Medical Center Improvement and Zoning Commission rules prohibits living in trailers, even temporarily, on state property."

Fallin lives in the mansion with her husband and stepson. Another stepson lives in a garage apartment at the mansion.

Christina Fallin, a musician and artist, is the governor's daughter from her first marriage.
Damn, can't any of her descendants get or hold a fucking job? Or pay rent anywhere? Resentful Republican losers, all of them.

What's Wrong W/ This Nation?

The "real American" humanoids we've bolded are what's wrong:
According to the poll, white Evangelicals, older voters, people who did not attend college, Republicans, and voters who live in rural areas tended to be more supportive of deportation compared to granting legal status to the undocumented population.
You know, hateful ignorant crackers living in fear. And too tax-averse to pay for deportation anyway, making it an even sadder joke.

Volunteers Of America

Several thousand words' worth.
I can't even.
Four citizens sat outside a Bellevue recruitment center on Wednesday, joining a national movement to guard military recruiters following a deadly rampage in Tennessee. Three men and one woman stationed themselves outside the Armed Forces Career Center near 140th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 20th Street in Bellevue for most of the day Navy veteran Don Dinsmore's son is a Marine recruiter at the Bellevue office. "They can't be armed, but I can," Dinsmore said. Dillon, who didn't give his last name, signed up for the Marines at this very office. He sat outside the center with his dog Zeus. "I shopped for boot camp on August 22, 2011," he said. He was badly injured in training and never served overseas, but knew many who did. "I failed my brothers. I didn't get to deploy. I didn't get to protect them in Afghanistan," Dillon said. "I'm going to do my best to protect my brothers at home. I can't patrol or anything, but in my chair I can at least sit here and watch over them." Not everyone outside the center was a veteran or a man. Shannon Tahja also sat in front of the office. "I'm intensely American. All my friends are military. A lot of my friends are military and I stand with them," she said. A couple walked by the group sitting outside the center and thanked them for protecting the servicemen and women inside. "It makes me feel like there may be hope for this country after all," said the man. Around the country, individuals have stood guard outside recruitment centers to protect those inside. People have been reported sitting outside centers in Cincinnati, Ohio; Cleburne, Texas; Howell, Michigan; Monroe, North Carolina; Longview, Texas; and Gallatin, Tennessee -- to name a few. The same has also happened in other locations in Washington state. On Tuesday, armed men were reportedly stationed outside an Army recruiting office in Spanaway, Washington. The two citizens took personal days from work to stand guard with their AR-15 rifles. Another man reportedly sat in front of a recruiting station in Silverdale, Washington, Tuesday. An Army recruiting spokesman said his branch would rather civilians stay alert and call in any suspicious activity instead of bringing weapon. But the military isn't taking steps to remove them as long as the guns stay outside. At the same time, some governors are calling for soldiers at recruitment centers to be armed. Following the shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which left five servicemen dead, some governors called for the arming of recruiters in their states. That included Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. On Tuesday, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin issued an executive order allowing National Guard personnel to carry firearms on duty. In Virginia, Gov. Terry McAuliffe wants to increase patrol around military recruitment centers. Federal law prohibits the possession of firearms in designated Federal buildings.

Must These Englishmen Live

Don't really care, but hoping to start an international incident by piling on the Limeys, who really were just awful, & probably haven't improved much.
An Indian Parliamentarian’s take down of the British Empire has gone viral since it was posted on YouTube earlier this month. The video of Shashi Tharoor making a case for why former colonial subjects are owed reparations in a debate at the Oxford Union has so far been viewed more than 1.6 million times.

“We literally paid for our own oppression,” Tharoor said having noted that India became what he called “Britain’s largest cash cow” after its local industries were crippled to better serve the colonial regime.

“Britain’s rise for 200 years was financed by its depredations in India. In fact, Britain’s Industrial Revolution was actually premised upon the deindustrialization of India,” the former Under-Secretary General of the United Nations said.
The cynic in me wonders why the Indians let the fucking Limeys colonize & depredate them in the first place. Let alone that they didn't kill the damn Brits after they gave them guns.
He also noted that the value of Indian resources and troops who supported Britain during both World Wars added up to billions of pounds which remain unpaid.
Both sides may not do exactly the same thing, but both sides usually suck hard.

Pinheads React

The U.S. Army is significantly more experienced w/ guns & stuff than many who profess to support the wholesale slaughter of babies & the like on the other side of the world/south of our own border by said military.
WASHINGTON — The Army has warned its recruiters to treat the gun-toting civilians gathering at centers across the country in the wake of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting as a security threat.

Soldiers should avoid anyone standing outside the recruiting centers attempting to offer protection and report them to local law enforcement and the command if they feel threatened, according to a U.S. Army Recruiting Command policy letter issued Monday.
As evidenced by our item directly below. Reactionary droolers, however, have a somewhat hysterical interpretation ...
If the Armed Forces really don't want these patriots accidentally discharging their weapons at the malls, maybe they could pose & prance w/ their things in front of African-American churches that people might want to shoot up or light on fire.

Ha ha ha ha ha. I do crack myself up once in a while, when I hit an absurd note like that.

From the Files of The Unexpected:
LANCASTER, Ohio — The armed civilians who have been guarding a military recruitment center here are gone, ordered off the property after one of them accidentally discharged his rifle on Thursday.

No one was injured.

U.S. Properties Group Portfolio Four LLC, the owner of the shopping center near the River Valley Mall that includes the multi-branch military recruitment center, ordered the armed volunteers to leave just hours after the shot was fired.

A Lancaster police officer delivered the order to several of them outside the Armed Services Career Center, saying, “God bless you,” but they had to leave.

The armed civilians have been guarding the center since Monday.

One of them has been charged with a misdemeanor after he accidentally fired his AR-15 rifle. Someone from the recruiting center at 1530 River Valley Blvd. flagged down an officer at 12:01 p.m. to report the incident, Lt. Shane Wilson said.

The shopping-center owner issued a statement saying it was decided that “for the safety of tenants, customers and construction personnel working in the immediate vicinity of the Military Recruiting Center, it would be best to request the removal of the armed individuals.”

Christopher A. Reed, 28, of Lancaster, was charged with discharging a firearm in the city limits, and was issued a summons to appear in Fairfield County Municipal Court on Tuesday, according to the police incident report.

Reed told police that he was holding his rifle outside the recruitment center when someone asked if he could take a look at it. Reed agreed, and while he was trying to clear the ammunition from the weapon, he accidentally fired one shot into the asphalt pavement.

The only damage was a hole in the pavement. The rifle was taken from Reed pending his appearance in court, the incident report says.

Conviction on the fourth-degree misdemeanor is punishable by a maximum of 30 days in jail.

Reed was convicted of the same offense in 2013, and was fined $50, court records show.

Some armed civilians have been guarding military recruiting stations in Ohio and elsewhere after the fatal shootings of five service members at a military recruitment center in Tennessee.

“I’m nobody special,” Reed said in a telephone interview on Thursday. “I’m just a guy doing my job because my own government wouldn’t do it.”

Reed said he is not a military veteran. He described himself as an active gun enthusiast who makes a living working side jobs.


He downplayed what happened. “It is what it is,” he said. “Nobody got hurt.”

A Marine recruiter at the center said he was not authorized to speak to reporters.

Before their eviction, armed civilians discussed why they were there. None was present when the rifle discharged.

“Government ain’t going to do it,” said Kenneth Casteel, a 67-year-old Marine Corps veteran who served in Vietnam and sat in a folding chair with his M-16 rifle propped against it. “They won’t give these guys any weapons to carry or keep in a safe. If we don’t do it, who is going to do it? It’s a matter of safety.”
Your typical now 67-yr. old Vietnam vet in 1972.
“We are not a redneck group,” the Lancaster resident added. “We are prior military.” [I.e., losers! — M.B.]

Passerby Lei Ashbaugh hailed the group. “Thank you, God bless you, Semper Fi,” she said, noting Casteel’s Marines ball cap.

Ashbaugh, 48, of Lancaster, whose husband is a Marine veteran, said she was heartened to see the volunteers guarding the recruitment center.

“We have recruiters who can’t defend themselves. Thank God for these people willing to defend them,” she said.
Could you all please stop teasing me & just fucking shoot your stupid fucking heads off already? I'm awfully bored.

Is the cinema the new target of choice for armed lunatics? I'm sure if I look at an upcoming release schedule I can find a few films that deserve to be shot up. (Probably be harder to find many that don't deserve perforation.)

Christ on a crutch, hrs. ago I blew U.S.$447.45 (That's w/ a 50% discount on the lenses, frames were a mere U.S.$99.95!) on a pair of cheaters. Should I have charged weapons & ammo instead (also conveniently leaving Capital One to pay for my murdering)? Not that I was planning on any sharpshooting, but I s'pose improved vision could help accuracy.

P.S.: False-flag operation to get joke G.O.P. prez candidate Bobby "Piyush" Jindal's sad mug on tee vee to blather the standard idiocy?
P.P.S.: Maybe the guy hadn't been to the movies for a while & wasn't aware he'd have to pay four hrs.' wages for a two-hr. (max) movie, a drink & a tub of popcorn product.

Today In Home-Schooling

They saw pools of blood splattered across the home’s front stoop, and when they heard moans, the officers forced their way in, Calhoun said.

They dragged the teenage girl out first, and then — not knowing if her attacker lingered inside — dragged out two more victims.

They found three more bodies in the family home, Calhoun said.

The two older brothers detained by police fled the scene once cops arrived, but a K-9 dog hunted them down about an hour later. They were hiding the thick woods by the country club nearby, Calhoun said.

Neighbors in the close-knit community said the family didn’t mingle much and the kids — who were home-schooled — were kept on a tight leash.

"We've never had any break-ins or disturbances whatsoever. That's why it's so shocking," Helen Hoagland, 88, said.
As if this has anything to do w/ "break-ins or disturbances". In a "close-knit community". Close-knit except for the not-mingling probably entirely too "closely-knit" family w/ its petschildren on a "tight leash". One can only wonder if the bros. alleged to have done it were caught Duggar-ing their relatives.
