All The Wrong Trails

I've never found anything nearly this exciting (or morbid) when hiking.

Hiker Finds Human Skeleton In Hollywood Hills

Hypodermic syringes, gay male porn, clothing (saw a syringe atop a neatly folded T-shirt on a tree branch once) various other trash & live fauna, sure, but not even dead animals.

Ooh-ooh, found another hot bed of lunacy, The Gospel Herald*:
While the moral code of the country is in unquestionable decline in recent years, one Arizona state senator suggests mandatory church attendance as the solution.

State Sen. Sylvia Allen (R) made the comment while debating concealed weapons permits at the Senate Appropriations Committee meeting last Tuesday. Allen was making the point that gun violence has less to do with carry permits and more to do with currupted [sic] souls.

"It's the soul that is corrupt. And how we get back to a moral rebirth in this country, I don't know since we are slowly eroding religion at every opportunity that we have," she said. "Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth."
A letter to Gawd.

And this further piling on the horrid Sen. Allen, which I hadn't read beyond the headline & so assumed her son-in-law was yet another lousy boss but he's an S-E-X offending under color of authority corrections officer. Christ, what a pair of assholes. When's the "moral rebirth" start in your family, hypocrite?
*What the Gospel Herald is heralding now (Where's the Good News of the Gospel? All this reporter sees is pathetic fear-mongering.):

Scientist - Burning In Hell

General Rule Dep't.

If you're like me (sorry if you are) you'll be amused by these losers possibly audibly, esp. the comments (Dreher isn't that funny.) many of which are from sensible people shaking their heads at the would-be martyrs who are now convinced by the idiots in Indiana that they'll have to hole up in the hills for a few generations a-fore it's safe to come down a'gin*. In a nation in which upwards of 70% of the sheep polled claimed to be Christian.

Or this sort of thing:

I’ve been in favour of same-sex civil marriage since I first heard it suggested, back when it was a nutsoid idea, maybe 30 years ago.

That wasn’t me being pro-gay – as a general rule I take a dislike to gays as soon as I meet them – but because it is so obviously fair. However, after having seen the viciousness of the gay-activist will to persecute, even the recriminalisation of homosexuality would not offend me.
Oh, I'm sure it wouldn't.

We Jump On The Bandwagon & Attempt To Harrass & Hurt Feelings: Fuck You, Lee Kuan Yew!

Further on a previous item about Singapore's founding father, Lee Kuan Hitler.

Lee Kuan Yew is finally dead — and America’s elites are eulogizing a tyrant and psychological monster

Lee Kuan Yew made Singapore wealthy & kept people in line with barbaric fear. Clinton & Kissinger should be ashamed

Neither of those two murderous pigs have ever felt "shame" about anything as far as this reporter can discern. (And honestly, isn't "shame" a pathetically bourgeois concept? In-fucking-deed, their very rejection of such inane middle-class values throughout their lives is one of the reasons they are notorious, idiot! How about a lecture on "civility" while you're at it?)

While we're on the subject of Singapore, be prepared for Religious Feelings Acts like this in many of our less enlightened states:
(Reuters) - A Singapore teenager has been charged with harassment and insulting a religious group for comments he made on social media about former premier Lee Kuan Yew and Christians soon after Lee's death, authorities said on Tuesday.

Amos Yee, who police said was 16, was charged under the recently enacted Protection from Harassment Act over a YouTube video in which he celebrated the death of Lee, the founding father of modern Singapore who died last week aged 91 and was cremated after a state funeral on Sunday.

Yee's case has reignited concerns about censorship and social controls in the Asian financial hub and drew criticism from an international media freedom watchdog.

Other offences on Yee's charge sheet included intentionally wounding the religious or racial feelings of another person, which carries a jail term of up to three years, and circulating an obscene image.

Yee faces a fine of up to S$5,000 (U.S.$3,633) if found guilty of the harassment charge.
Next door, meanwhile:
(Reuters) - Police have arrested three editors from a Malaysian news portal on suspicion of sedition, their lawyers and authorities said on Tuesday, over a news report on discussions about punishments meted out under Islamic law.

The offices of The Malaysian Insider portal were raided by police and officials from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) late on Monday.

Managing editor Lionel Morais, features editor Zulkifli Sulong and Malay news editor Amin Iskandar were taken into custody and several computers and other items were confiscated.

Authorities in socially conservative Malaysia have conducted a series of arrests since last August for sedition, detaining opposition politicians, activists, and academics. Nurul Izzah Anwar, the daughter of jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, was arrested for sedition this month over a speech made in parliament.

The latest arrests were over an article that said the Confederation of Rulers - Malaysia's monarchy - had rejected a proposal to amend a federal law that could allow the use of the Islamic punishment, hudud, in Malaysia.

Malaysia's Islamist opposition party is calling for strict enforcement of sharia, or Islamic law, for Muslims that includes amputations and stonings.

Sweet Blood of Jesus I am sick sick sick & tired of hearing or reading about the hateful basketball-addled residents of Hoosier-land. Screw alla you rat bastards!
Here's the truth:
SB 101 will help protect religious freedom in Indiana by providing protection for individuals with sincerely held religious beliefs, along with Christian businesses and churches.

SB 101 will help protect individuals, Christian businesses and churches from those supporting homosexual marriages and those supporting government recognition and approval of gender identity (male cross-dressers).

Here are just 3 examples:
  • Christian bakers, florists and photographers should not be punished for refusing to participate in a homosexual marriage!
  • A Christian business should not be punished for refusing to allow a man to use the women’s restroom!
  • A church should not be punished because they refuse to let the church be used for a homosexual wedding!
  • Son of a fucking bitch this sheep-populated nation needs a Freedom From Religion Act!
    If not a good beating.

    Bullshit Talks While
    The Money Walks

    Ladies & Germs, the Free Market of Ideas:
    National Review, the conservative magazine founded by William F. Buckley Jr. in 1955, is becoming a nonprofit, the On Media blog has learned.

    Since its launch, the magazine has operated as a not-for-profit business, even as it came to rely on more and more donations in recent years. Starting next month, it will become a nonprofit organization, which will make it exempt from federal taxes. National Review also plans to merge with the nonprofit National Review Institute, its sister organization, according to a source with knowledge of the plans.

    Reached for comment, editor Rich Lowry said the move to nonprofit status officially recognized "what has always been the case: We're a mission and a cause, not a profit-making business." He added, "The advantage of the move is that all the generous people who give us their support every year will now be able to give tax-deductible contributions, and that we will be able to do more fundraising, in keeping with our goal to keep growing in the years ahead."

    "We are making the change from a position of strength. We are the largest opinion magazine in the country (150,000 circulation all told) and employ more people than we ever have," he said. "We want to go out and tap the conservative philanthropic community to get even bigger and better."

    "Most similar publications — from Commentary on the right to Mother Jones on the Left — are nonprofits, a reflection of the fact that publishing a serious opinion magazine has never been a profitable business, and never will be," he added. "We are just changing in keeping with the industry standard."
    And now you know the rest of the story. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Hah!

    Off The Grid!

    "Off" in the sense of total destruction: Bring it down tear it down burn it down!! Can't wait until America is ripping apart its housing stock to burn for heat & cooking. Back to nature, defilers of the earth, & not a moment too soon!PG&E. It is to laugh.

    Anyway, too damn bad I haven't the knowledge or desire to learn how to hack & destroy; causing trouble & suffering for millions might actually be better than merely murdering the relatively few I could get w/ the standard "take as many w/ me as possible" approach.

    Tracking Discourse Complexity Preceding Alzheimer's Disease Diagnosis: A Case Study Comparing the Press Conferences of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush.

    Abstract

    Changes in some lexical features of language have been associated with the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease. Here we describe a method to extract key features from discourse transcripts, which we evaluated on non-scripted news conferences from President Ronald Reagan, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1994, and President George Herbert Walker Bush, who has no known diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Key word counts previously associated with cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease were extracted and regression analyses were conducted. President Reagan showed a significant reduction in the number of unique words over time and a significant increase in conversational fillers and non-specific nouns over time. There was no significant trend in these features for President Bush.

    Enough? Too Damn Many!

    The advantages of literacy:
    “We’ve got somebody in the White House who effectively, peace be upon him, acts like a Muslim and a Marxist the same time,” Kincaid told host Rick Wiles, before calling Secretary of State John Kerry “an agent of Hanoi” who is just one of many “people in positions of power who are working actively for the enemies of the United States.”

    Wiles laid out a scenario where Obama refuses to leave office after his second term: “This guy is so wacked-out, if he could create a crisis, I think he would stay in the White House.”

    Kincaid said that while he doesn’t know if the president would attempt to stay in office, he believes Obama is “working actively for the enemies of the United States, and Iran is just one of them. I would include in that China, I would include in that Russia, global Islam; it’s going to be tough to survive these last two years. We need the help of God here.”

    “This is guy is mentally unstable,” Wiles said of Obama. “He’s not incompetent, he knows exactly what he was doing. Hitler was wacked-out and Hitler was very competent in carrying out his agenda but he was mentally insane. I don’t think Barack Obama is a mentally stable person. I think he is an extremely dangerous man.”

    This prompted Kincaid to explain his theory about how Obama may have been brainwashed into Communism as a young person while he was high:
    I think he’s wacked-out in the sense that I think if we go back to his history, especially in Hawaii when he came under the influence of the Communist Frank Marshall Davis who was himself a dope-smoker and an alcoholic, Obama we know was a member of the ‘Choom Gang.’ He was a heavy marijuana user. That had to have an effect on him. Maybe it’s clouded him some way, it enabled Davis to brainwash him. Of course we know he was raised partly as a Muslim. These are the ingredients that went into the combustible material that we see in the White House today, and the whole thing is threatening to explode.

    Remind Me Again, Who Won That Russo-Japanese War?

    President Putin has told senior officers of Russia’s domestic security service that despite the constantly increasing foreign pressure, the situation in the country will improve – once it stops giving in to its foes and starts becoming more powerful.

    No one has ever succeeded in intimidating or pressuring our country and no one ever will – we have always had and always will have an adequate answer for all internal and external threats to national security,” Vladimir Putin said in an address to the FSB collegium on Thursday.

    Taking As Many As Possible W/ You?

    Unconfirmed as yet, whatever. (Had been planning on advising the world of idiots [Redundant. — Ed.] that we don't need further speculation, esp. as the Germanwings [Huh? Really, how dopey izzat name?] 'plane didn't disappear into the ocean & the flight recorders have been located, but now that foul play is a distinct possibility, let's celebrate the human spirit, which can be summed up w/ the phrase "Rats in a cage!!")
    A senior military official involved in the investigation described “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

    “The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.”

    He said, “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

    Rock'n'Roll Wants You Dead

    Yesterday one ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© posted an Eight-Eyed Spy f/ Lydia Lunch video somewhere which reminded this reporter of seeing, hearing & listening to said rockin' teen combo as they opened for FEAR at Doug Weston's Troubador 'bout 35 yrs. ago February. (1980, 'k?)

    Been there done that so what ordinarily, but at this gig I began to feel awfully ill, so wretched I did the vom in a dumpster behind the Troub as I staggered my way home to sleep, only to discover when I woke up I'd neither overindulged (or been doped) but simply had the measles. Which, judging from the two-wk. measles incubation period can be entirely blamed on the rock: Two wks. to the day prior I'd tagged along w/ the Angry Samoans to a gig in a common room in a dorm at U.C. Irvine (Or was it U.C. Fullerton?) (w/ Rhino 39);a gig at which I assaulted my immune system by drinking at least a pint of Wild Turkey in X (or fewer) mins. in the parking lot & was therefore liquored up enough to do The Worm (a "dance" involving rolling on the floor, like a horizontal mosh-pit) w/ a bunch of no doubt diseased college students &/or townies.
