Best idea formulated around here in some time: Put the old person's bed-rest pillow to use
& spend the rest of a long & indeterminate period watching telebision/sleeping.

More Local Action

Damnit, we never have nice things like this!

More Neener

There's nothing this nifty in your benighted burgs, is there?
At the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Maltman Avenue over in Silverlake, nasty cultural commentary, or Disney Studios is about to release their new 3-D epic, Mickey Mouse Frankenstein. You decide.
Especially fun for us as we once lived at Effie & Maltman, a mere block north. Other pix of our former 'hood. Original textual context.

One cultural quibble:
We’re mellow out here, you know. Punk Rock came from the big cities back east.
BULLSHIT! Don't try to make us start a kulturkampf, 'cause we won't. Fucking hippie.

Daily Neener

(In the Daily Neener, which probably won't be a daily feature, we point out our moral superiority, based merely on our randomly ending up stuck at the edge of the continent w/ nowhere else to run & no personal flotation device.)

The Coast is the most, 'cause the surfin's the best! Swelter, biased East Coast elitists!
Unusually cold temperatures in Southern California continued, with Los Angeles International Airport setting a record low on Friday.

LAX got to only 67 degrees, breaking a record set in 1926, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures are expected to stay fairly cool Saturday, with highs around 70 on the coast and in the 80s inland. Conditions will be a bit warmer on Sunday, according to the weather service.

July has turned out to be cooler than normal.

Instead of daytime highs approaching the mid-80s, downtown L.A. has experienced temperatures in the mid- to high 70s. From June 1 to July 5, daytime and nighttime temperatures have averaged a relatively cool 69.8 degrees.
Tremble in fear before our obvious righteousness, residents of the wrong side of the Rockies!

Stupid Day-Ending Video

If they build it, will we Americans bomb it? (Just want to be absolutely clear. It is WAR, right?)

Niggers, Jews & Sigma Nus

Awaiting the "Hollywood Jewsliberals drove poor Catholic Mel Gibson out of Hollywood by playing his tape" from Big Hollywood. C'mon, what's the hold-up?

Jury Finds Black People Frightening

Jooos is scary too, but their kind ain't vi'lent like the darkies, jes' tricky w/ words.
Times change, but the radioactive fear of black people, black men in particular, has proved to have a longer half-life than any science could have discerned. This is not a fear white people possess of black people -- it is a fear all Americans possess. It makes white cops kill black cops, it makes black cops kill black men, and it whispers in the ears of white and nonwhite jurors alike that fear of an unarmed black man lying face down in the ground is not "unreasonable." All of which is to say, while it infects all of us, a few of us bear the brunt of the suffering it causes.

Catholic Boy

Our low expectations of humanity lowered yet again.

Mind The Gap

“While the United States has some of the wealthiest institutions in the world, it also has a ‘system’ of postsecondary education with far more economic stratification than is true of any other country.”
America, the land of the exceptional. This makes Americans stronger, too. They really have to compete to get into a good school.

How does this fit w/ the party line on snobby liberal elitists ruining our children, we wonder, but the answer we get is: "Who fucking knows or cares at 0250?"

So, one more load of the old yet still satisfying schadenfreude before we take a telebision break.
The study also said that the recession that began in the last months of 2008 has dramatically changed the economics of higher education, probably forever.
Well, good. Change. (Been through enough of our own, thank you, but others can use a good shaking every so often.) We're sorry for the innocent who will be hurt by these chickens coming home, but as no one is innocent, what the hell are we on about?

Bremelos

Funnyman Gallagher surprises someone who "HAD NO IDEA."
Gallagher is upset about a lot of things. Young people with their sagging pants (in faintly coded racist terms, he explains that this is why the jails are overcrowded—because "their" baggy pants make it too hard for "them" to run from the cops). Tattoos: "That ink goes through to your soul—if you read your Bible, your body is a sacred temple, YOU DIPSHIT." People naming their girl-children Sam and Toni instead of acceptable names like Evelyn and Betty: "Just give her some little lesbian tendencies!" Guantánamo Bay: "We weren't even allowed to torture all the way. We had to half-torture—that's nothin' compared to what Saddam and his two sons OOFAY and GOOFAY did." Lesbians: "There's two types—the ugly ones and the pretty ones." (Um, like all people?) Obama again: "If Obama was really black, he'd act like a black guy and get a white wife." Michael Vick: "Poor Michael Vick." Women's lib: "These women told you they wanna be equal—they DON'T." Trans people: "People like Cher's daughter—figure that out. She wants a penis, but she has a big belly. If you can't see your dick, you don't get one." The Rice Krispies elves: "All three of those guys are gay. Look at 'em!" The Mexicans: "Look around—see any Mexicans? Nope. They'll be here later for the cleanup." The French: "They ruin our language with their faggy words."

Above all, everything is gay, gay, gay to Gallagher. He leans into it with the borderline- nonsensical, icked-out, ignorant glee of a boy—or the protest-too-much vigor of a GOP senator. Gallagher delivers your Bible verse for the day: "Without God, we are nothing but dust. What is butt dust? Is that what you get if your homosexual isn't properly lubricated?" He relates a story about spilling mouthwash onto his crotch during a show: "Lucky for me, there was no homosexuals in the area—'cause my balls was minty fresh." At other points during the show, Gallagher says, "Men and women can't live in the same house" and "There's no way men and women can have a relationship." He says he can't remember why he used to feel pleasure in looking at a woman. And, "There's only one kind of homosexual guy, and that's the pretty ones—why do homosexual men have to be so good-looking?" Gallagher. Listen. Is there something you want to share with us?

A Threat From Andrew Sullivan Is Returned: Get a Real Fucking Job & Work Until You're 75, You Fat Pig!!

Quite the uptick in assholery today.
But the retirement age has in no way caught up with life expectancy in America. I agree that Medicare is the more urgent target. I just don't see why we can't cut Medicare and raise the retirement age, as well as reduce the more utopian elements of the Bush-Cheney extension of empire in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We would love to see Fat-Boy Sullivan do a physically demanding job (Instead of sitting around typing & bullshiting about spending & deficits, maybe he could shovel shit in Iraq for the next 25 yrs.) all day & all night & all afternoon from now 'til he's oh, let's say 75. Get to work, lard-ass.

Our editorial staff's Medicare has already been fucked w/. This is not your imagination. Hope Andy has a lot of "investments" that'll keep his anti-AIDS medication going after he's too old to work. (Not true: We hope he gets death-paneleda nice big Medicare cut just when he needs it the most. Preferably on the basis that he's a dirty foreign queer who is of no use to anyone & his medications are awfully expensive. That seems to be the Christian conservative approach, hope he doesn't expect to be treated any differently 'cause he was an apologist for their bullshit.)

UPDATE: Let's throw Matthew Yglesias (the instigator) off a cliff while we're at it:
What’s more, if we’re going to cut spending on retirement programs then such cuts should be broadly shared and not exclusively inflicted on younger people.
These people are becoming more & more irksome. Tell Yglesias what: Once he's paid more into the SS system than we have, he can express his opinion. In the meantime, Matthew can start an IRA.

Not That There's Anything
Wrong W/ It!

Looky:
A federal judge ruled today that part of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional.

Judge Joseph Tauro, of U.S. District Court in Boston, issued rulings on two separate cases today.

"This court has determined that it is clearly within the authority of the Commonwealth to recognize same-sex marriages among its residents, and to afford those individuals in same-sex marriages any benefits, rights, and privileges to which they are entitled by virtue of their marital status," Tauro wrote in the decisionfor Massachusetts v. Health and Human Services.

"The federal government, by enacting and enforcing DOMA, plainly encroaches upon the firmly entrenched province of the state, and, in doing so, offends the Tenth Amendment. For that reason, the statute is invalid," he wrote.

In both Massachusetts and its companion case,Gill v. Office of Personnel Management, Tauro ruled specifically on section 3 of DOMA, which reads:
In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word "marriage" means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word "spouse" refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.
Whadaya know.

Wade through this (pack a lunch, you'll be gone a while):

The Time to Act Against Iran Is Fast Approaching

This means targeting its nuclear facilities via precision air strikes.
If Ahmadinejad prevails, the Twelfth Imam, who brings a new “world order” in fire and brimstone, may not remain in occultation for much longer.  According to the Iranian newspaper Kargozaran, Cabinet Secretary Majid Doostali has explained that “just as Imam Zaman’s occultation had a prelude and a main period, his return too has a prelude and a main period,” and that Ahmadinejad’s administration “was the prelude to the return.” According toRooz Online Iran, the president of the Islamic Management Scientific Society at the Qom Seminary School, one Hojjatoleslam Sammameddin Ghavani, has even proposed the establishment of a “‘Ministry of Waiting’ to facilitate the arrival of the Hidden Imam. Ahmadinejad has announced that the Imam Zaman would emerge from occultation within two years — the period of waiting.” Hard-line Ayatollah Mohammad Baqer Kharrazi, leader of the Hizballah Party, points to the creation of a Greater Iran, including Israel, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, as a prelude to the reappearance of the Mahdi.

Skeptical Westerners who would pass this off as merely a quaint belief not to be taken seriously should put on their considering caps, unlike Richard Armin’s cobbler in Foole upon Foole who takes his off — never a good idea if one does not wish to descend into folly. But the cobblers proliferate among us. In Radical Islam: Medieval Theology and Modern Politics, historian Emmanuel Sivan warns of precisely this menace in his discussion of Shi’a belief and thought, its vision of an “ideal, legitimate state to be instituted by its leader,” the Hidden Imam.

Over the course of history, he writes, a “minority of Shi’ites, quite substantial and dangerous at times, would move from pessimistic idealism to an optimistic brand of the same approach — the imam’s arrival is imminent, God’s kingdom is bound to be brought upon earth by this messiah (mahdi), and one should help precipitate its descent by armed revolt.” Ahmadinejad’s intention appears to be to accelerate the Mahdi’s arrival by initiating an act of apocalyptic violence. According to many reports, Ahmadinejad has even widened a boulevard in Tehran to welcome the Mahdi on his return (Newsweek, The Elephant Bar, InvestigateMagazine, etc.).

In a December 7, 2009, interview with Al-Arabiya TV, Ahmadinejad reasserted his conviction, blaming the United States for blocking the return of the Mahdi. “We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will rise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,” he said. To blithely assume that Ahmadinejad does not intend to act on his words is sheer, self-destructive madness. As Louis Rene Beres, author of Force, Order and Justice and a respected consultant on nuclear terror, writes, “Tehran’s new nuclear status could coincide with an unshakable leadership belief in the Shi’ite apocalypse. Here, Israel would face … a ‘suicide state.’”

From the perspective of Frank Gaffney, former U.S. assistant secretary of defense for international security policy, not only Israel but all of us are at risk. The Iranian regime “is convinced, according to its theology, that bringing back the twelfth Imam, the Mahdi, the messiah figure, is their highest purpose, and in order to do that, according to their religious beliefs, something very much like the apocalypse needs to take place. It seems to me the height of folly to think you’ll be able to dissuade them from pursuing that end, perhaps by starting a nuclear war.”

He goes on: “If we think we can deter mullahs who are committed to an apocalyptic, messianic program, we’re kidding ourselves.” Nor should we ignore the fact that Iran continues to advance its missile technology. According to Reza Kahlili, a former CIA agent who infiltrated the Revolutionary Guards and has just released his memoir A Time to Betray, Iran is perfecting a new delivery system, the R-27, which brings almost all of Europe and much of Asia within its range. As if this were not a sobering enough thought, a report by the U.S. Department of Defense tabled in Congress on April 19, 2010, warns that Iranian ICBMs may reach American shores by 2015.
& then explain how Shi'a apocalypticism is any less a "quaint belief" than those of Christians who support Israel w/ the intention that eventually she will be blown to bits to fulfill the apocalyptic prophecies of certain of their holy books.

Indeed, how do we know that the person who typed all this blood-lust (David Solway is a Canadian poet and essayist. He is the author of The Big Lie: On Terror, Antisemitism, and Identity, and is currently working on a sequel, Living in the Valley of Shmoon. His new book on Jewish and Israeli themes, Hear, O Israel!, has just been released by Mantua Books.) isn't hoping that the attack on Iran for which he so bravely calls (from Canada, yet) will precipitate his hoped-for apocalypse?

Just used one of those torrent deals. Seems to have worked like a charm. How long will this last?

Out Stocking Up On Water ... Back Later

Scientists worry about the effect of the Easter Sunday Border Quake.
Experts say the larger question is whether the temblor made quakes more likely along more dangerous fault lines, such as the Whittier — which produced the deadly 1987 Whittier Narrows quake — and the San Andreas.

Scientists are particularly interested in the Whittier fault because it's connected to the Elsinore and runs under heavily populated areas.
Bring on the destruction & horror already. The tension's more likely to kill us than any eventual earthquake.

Oh, Crud

Post-meal. Baseball game on telly. Ennui, exhaustion increasing. Must reach coffee.

Blame BHO

Ennui led us to peruse the L.A. Times' obsessive homicide listings. We'd heard chatter that murder, at least, was down city-wide, though we weren't following that up; just hoping for something grim & vile. Nothing but banality, though.

However, the chatterers weren't kidding. The Times has been recording all homicides in Los Angeles County since 1 Jan. 2007. Our Times-defined neighborhood (population 115,070.3, per the 2000 Census) had 14 in 2007, & another 14 in 2008. 2009: Four. So far this yr.: Two. One domestic violence, one standard LAPD operating procedure: Black guy w/ a learning disability is shot by officers who saw him "reaching into his waistband."
Los Angeles police officials said officers shot Washington early Saturday morning after he reached into his waistband for what they believed was a weapon.

Washington died from a single gunshot wound to the head shortly after midnight.

Although no weapon was found, officers said they feared for their lives because Washington did not respond to their commands and appeared to be reaching for his waistband.
Or "appeared to be reaching for his waistband." While being of the African-American persuasion.

No Mas

1945

1969: Lt. William L. Calley, Jr., during his court martial in 1971.

Past Paranoia

All decent people know how much Glenn Beck sucks, but if he (& his aging fans) weren't a sad & powerless joke, this could be happening:
Had Beck been a public figure at the time of King's famous speech, there is little doubt on "which side of history" he would have stood: the same side as every other far-rightwing Mormon. Had they been contemporaries, Beck would have condemned King as a "progressive cockroach" surrounded by communists, or as an outright communist himself. We know this not only because he has imported such tactics into the present. We know this because his Mormon heroes were viciously anti-civil rights in the 1950s and 1960s.

Beck has repeatedly, respectfully, and recently played audio of men like Ezra Taft Benson, a Mormon apostle who thought the civil rights movement was a dastardly communist plot. Benson also wrote the forward to a book of race hate whose cover illustration featured the severed, bloody head of an African American.
Beck's favorite author and biggest influence, meanwhile, is W. Cleon Skousen. The author of four of the ten books on Beck's 9.12 Project required-reading list, Skousen supported the Birchite view captured in the title of a September 1965 cover story in the John Birch Society Bulletin, "Fully Expose the 'Civil Rights' Fraud, and You Will Break the Back of the Communist Conspiracy!"

The Benson/Skousen axis of the 1960s, of which Beck would have been a energetic party to, was a multi-generational affair. In 1965, Salt Lake City was plunged into hysteria when Reed Benson (son of Ezra) and Mark Skousen (nephew of Cleon) spread rumors that the NAACP was sending two thousand Black Muslims to attack the Tabernacle. When general panic ensued, the Utah National Guard was placed on alert and began practicing riot maneuvers in anticipation of the invasion. After calm was restored, the Anti-Defamation League and the NAACP both condemned the Bircher-fomented race-war hysteria in Utah. (Both groups have also condemned Beck.) The next month, the Bulletin published articles describing blacks as "savages" and civil rights leaders as "animals."
Getting dilrods to show at rallies is all well & good, but when was the last time one of these hucksters managed to get the National Guard called out?

Check For Fleas & Buboes Immediately

Hope for the Great Cleansing springs eternal:
LOS ANGELES -- The Los Alamos Campground in the Angeles National Forest has been shut down after a squirrel captured there tested positive for plague.

The campground will remain closed for at least ten days, according to Los Angeles County public health director Jonathan Fielding.

The squirrel was caught about two weeks ago.

All the squirrel burrows in the area near Gorman will be dusted for fleas, which can transmit the disease from wild rodents to humans.

Then, further tests will be performed before the campground is reopened.

There have been four cases of human plague in L.A. County since 1984, none of which were fatal.

'Way back up in the woods....'

(Allen J. Schaben/Los Angeles Times/July 3, 2010)
Chuck Berry plays his classic "Johnny B Goode" while displaying some of his signature moves -- this at the age of 83.
Rock’s first poet and original guitar hero confessed during his hour-long set to tiring easily these days. So he alternated such rollicking anthems of youthful liberation as “Roll Over Beethoven,” “School Days” and “Sweet Little Sixteen” with slower numbers, including “Every Day I Have the Blues” and “Wee Wee Hours,” in which he let his big Gibson electric guitar do most of the singing.

The man who invented much of the musical lexicon for his instrument reeled and rocked with a perplexing string of chord progressions and melodic runs during his solos, the logic of which might have been perceptible only to certain breeds of guitar-loving dogs. Yet just when you thought he’d completely abandoned musical cohesion comprehensible to anyone this side of Thelonious Monk, those long, limber fingers would slip back into the exhilarating dimension he largely defined more than half a century ago.
That might have been fun. This too.

Dirt-Eating Hippies Enter World Of Paranoia

Nervous obsession w/ "healthy" eating is more psychiatric bogosity, damnit, & will lead to this sort of thing:
I told you this was coming. Years ago, I warned NaturalNews readers that an attempt might soon be under way to outlaw broccoli because of its anti-cancer phytonutrients. This mental health assault on health-conscious consumers is part of that agenda. It's an effort to marginalize healthy eaters by declaring them to be mentally unstable and therefore justify carting them off to mental institutions where they will be injected with psychiatric drugs and fed institutional food that's all processed, dead and full of toxic chemicals.
Our immediate thought is that this guy will not be hauled off & doped up because he's suffering from Healthy eating disorder.

Not that we completely disagree w/ people who are paranoid about the "psychiatric establishment."
The Guardian even goes to the ridiculous extreme of saying, "The obsession about which foods are "good" and which are "bad" means orthorexics can end up malnourished."

Follow the non-logic on this, if you can: Eating "good" foods will cause malnutrition! Eating bad foods, I suppose, is assumed to provide all the nutrients you need. That's about as crazy a statement on nutrition as I've ever read. No wonder people are so diseased today: The mainstream media is telling them that eating health food is a mental disorder that will cause malnutrition!
Ummm ...
