Consumer Round-Up

Conservatives are contemptible, aren't they? We suppose it's not really their fault; every time we turn around another study suggests they are psychologically, mentally & physically deficient,* from their tribalism & unquestioning worship of authority to the enlarged amygdalas that make them quiver in fear of virtually everything, especially the new & different, said fear being what makes them so fucking gullible.

The latest example of unthinking dumbfuckery that (again) has us ready to kill? "Name" brands. The brain-dead like 'em.
Newly published research provides a compelling answer: brand-name products. Conservatives gravitate toward them, and Walmart, unlike Trader Joe’s, is packed with them.

That provocative conclusion can be drawn from a study in the journal Psychological Science. A research team led by Vishal Singh of New York University’s Stern School of Business has discovered a relationship between voting behavior, high levels of religiosity, and “seemingly inconsequential product choices.”

They argue that your decision to vote for a certain candidate, and purchase a particular brand of detergent, springs from the same basic impulse:
You're a fucking cretin.
*Yes, we're preparing a manifesto that will objectively demonstrate that conservatives are not nearly as advanced & developed as normal people, & that, as nature itself has made them incapable of benefiting from FEMA reëducation camps, another solution to the problem of these dangerous armed paranoids among us must be found. Any suggestions?

My understanding is that crazy ex-cop dood running around your neighborhood with a shootin iron also has a manifesto....

Chris Dorner: Rouge cop or underground hero?

Yeah, I just hope your manifesto doesn't end up with you going off the deep end and killing the wingnuts we call conservatives.

The crazy ex-cop running around your neck of the woods still isn't getting much national exposure which is a shame as the LAPD have a long history of abuse and racism.

The CBS morning news had an extended segment on it this morning. But their "star" "expert" is the former head of the LAPD's major crimes unit...

OBS..that's because they are concentrating on the cop..not the abuse he talks about in the LAPD. To me it's like a whistleblower...but this one went on a killing rampage which of course means anything he said lost all credibility, which is sad.

I am in favour of rouge cops.

The craziest thing about the Dorner spree is that the LAPD seems to have killed as many people as Dorner has.

Keep your head down, old chum!
