How Low Can You Go?

Joan Walsh here got the stupid peoples' panties in twists:Has she no "shame or respect for the dead?" Apparently as much as Breitbart had for the living, we'd say.

She does realize that Andrew left behind a wife and four children? And what has that to do w/ anything? Jesus, what kind of jerk would "leave behind" his wife & four children?

"Written On Their Hearts"

It's a "book trailer," yet it isn't trailing anything (other than being about 50 yrs. behind the present).Best laugh line (0:58): "They're ready to fight for what's written on their hearts about what makes America great." Just as we suspected, theocratic bullshit/code/dog-whistling. (Leads to this sort of thing, too:
“Our sentence does not sound severe. The law which a condemned man has violated is inscribed on his body with the Harrow. This Condemned Man, for example,” and the Officer pointed to the man, “will have inscribed on his body, ‘Honour your superiors!’”)
Musical response to free enterprise:Non-musical responses. Credit should be given.

Closet Case Of The Day

Whooo! Young Jesse Conners here is a candidate for a men's room meltdown.Keep fucking that chicken, Jesse, until you, too, are relieved of your urges.

Not that this is just about Jesse's closet. Plenty of grifting too.
Connors' service seems to revolve around producing, for a fee, personalized business cards that pastors can hand out, encouraging people to visit the True Life website where they can learn more about Jesus and the Bible and find local churches.  At least, that was the best we could discern, as it was hard to know just what Connors was talking about ...


In the name of hell, why does any one ever awake after going to sleep? Don't tell us hunger, either.

Next question:

Restaurant Report

Have et at this particular dump. Twice. Took pix once. Nice inside; the view out, not so hot.
Food's been pretty good. But what's w/ the decidedly non-CFL light bulbs? Seems as if every other dumprestaurant/bar/bordello/shooting gallery we enter has them.
Entirely different establishment.
These two spots being nine blocks from each other, we're wondering if it's merely local. Anyone else noticed, in L.A. zones we don't often visit or in rumored-to-exist other parts of the world?

Dark Side Of The SoCal Dream

The backyard swimming pool is second only to the palm in SoCal iconography, but the palm only breeds rats & carrion birds; this pool & others like it could breed millions of mosquitoes.
Other spots the skeeter truck will be visiting.

Hey, freedom lovers! Is this police state invasion of privacy & violation of property rights morally equivalent to fatal drone strikes?

Blue-Noses To Go Galt?

You lost, the genie is out of the bottle, the clock will not run backwards, the car will not be un-invented, yada, so please, as suggested, fuck off
Paul Weyrich was right about the culture war. Social conservatives are fighting a losing battle — not against a global secular humanist conspiracy, but against the social consequences of the pill, the automobile and the Internet. Short of reversing the industrial revolution, emptying the cities and restoring agrarian society, after the manner  of Pol Pot’s communists in Cambodia in the 1970s, the best hope for social conservatives is to retreat to minority enclaves like those of the Amish. On self-created reservations they can raise their children as they see fit, segregated from mainstream culture and visited, perhaps, by morally liberal tourists nostalgic for an older, simpler way of life. And if their fertility is higher than that of the morally liberal majority, they can hope to take over America by strength of numbers — in 500 or a thousand years.
& leave natty business, Babylonians!

Life? Pretty Good At This Moment

Viewing the Dodger game on Fox Sports Prime Ticket, which is having technical difficulties preventing them from showing adverts; we're seeing & hearing Vin Scully fill time w/ trivia between innings, rather than hearing whichever movie star asshole* it is who does the voice-over for the Hyundai commercials to which viewers are subjected all season.

On a related note, said former Bums of Brooklyn now possess the best record in the Majors & swept the defending cham-peen (albeit Pujols-less) Cards in a three game series over the wknd. What this means in the last days of May is that the Dodgers are probably about to experience a June swoon of historic proportions.

*Now we remember: Jeff Bridges. Go fuck yourself Jeffy, & stop stealing money from voice actors who aren't millionaires, you fucking dick.

Studying Nature

Apparently they've invented a gawd & built an idol.


Christian Sex Magic

"Lesbians, queers & homosexuals" must be plant life or something.'Cause if'n they cain't reperdooce, whar duh they come from?

"Could you imagine kissin' some man?"* Is the congregation all straight males? Perhaps, strict Jew- & Muslim-style, the women are at separate viewing sites? (Or the ladies in his flock are all lesbians.)

*We can certainly imagine Pastor Worley imagining kissing a man. We imagine he might imagine it several times a day, solely to convince himself how ick-ick-icky it is, of course.

Today's Class War report:
4,690 people were killed at work in 2010, up three percent from 2009, the Center for Public Integrity reports. That means that more Americans died in their workplaces in one year than died during the entire war in Iraq.
It has long been the position of this web log that if you don't resist, what you get (an early death) is what you deserve, & what you don't get (living wages, dignity, yada) you didn't deserve.

They're Back

Yes, "smart" conservative writers. Examples:
Conservatives, in case you haven’t noticed, are churning out some pretty serious and scholarly works.  And they’re catching on with a fairly wide audience, too.

Interestingly, Hayward’s AEI colleagues are making major contributions to this cause. For example, AEI president Arthur Brooks is out with a new book called, “The Road to Freedom” — currently number 28 on the New York Times Best-Sellers list. AEI fellow (and syndicated columnist) Jonah Goldberg’s “The Tyranny of Cliches” is hot on his heels at number 30. And this winter and spring, Charles Murray, AEI’s W. H. Brady Scholar, created much buzz with his celebrated book, “Coming Apart.”
Where "created much buzz" translates as "was roundly mocked by all as a piece of ridiculous crap." And Jonah Goldberg, whose entire oeuvre is a cliché? And what did AEI Prexy Brooks do? Rewrote The Road to Serfdom, we figure. Smart nothing, these Brainiacs are off the scale!

And, as might be expected, reactionary:
[T]he best conservative writing tends to be a response to dramatic cultural changes and liberal overreach.

Too Much Fun

Wknd. in the big citya sophisticated urban cultural oasis:

Fri., a double feature of flicks almost as old as we are.
Sat., dance (Korean version) in a vacant lot.
Sun., dance (Ethiopian version) in a vacant lot and burger, brews & happening jazz later.

Why us, Lord? Make it stop.

Pretty much like the 1930s around here.
