P.S.: I AM NOT A CRANK

Protip: Don't use masking tape or, as in this case, what appeared to be first aid stuff. (White, & none too sticky.)
Use a permanent adhesive.

Everybody's Talkin'

No idea which to believe, but an 11°F. difference in modeling (Sat.) when the standard deviation between these two stations is two or three degrees worries me. Also the seven degrees diff on Sun.
0221PDT 30 May 2014
Currently (allegedly) nine degrees warmer at Hancock Park, which, naturally, is closer to WEB OF EVIL's headquarters bunker than the generic "Los Angeles" report, which (NO MATTER THE ZIP CODE I INPUT!!) is always from the campus of the University of Spoiled Children south of downtown. Figures: Micro & Soft. (Y'know, "Tiny & Flaccid.")

We're On The Nod, We're On The Nod ...

... WE ARE, WE ARE, WE'RE ON THE NOD! Zzzzzzzz indeed.

There may well always be an England, but — OBLIGATORY INTERRUPTION!!!
So, fifty yrs. since events portrayed in Quadrophenia.
In the vexed history of British postwar youth subcultures (is there any good way this sentence can end?), the battles on bank holiday beaches in 1964 between mods and rockers are totemic. (Apparently not.)
What-fucking-ever. This sod goes on about Mods, Rockers, Mockers, & other crap in a sort-of review of something that BBCAmerica will never fucking run for any of us to see because of the inbreeding that makes them as stupid as they are ugly. (All cousins, if you know what we mean.) And because we handed them their asses in two wars, then had to save their asses in two more wars in the following century. Losers & ingrates!!

No wait. Possibility one might view it on a website, ONLY FOUR DAYS LEFT however. Nope. Limeys only, 'less you can fool their devil-boxes into thinking your devil-box is in the U.K. (Limeys only, feh! Sickening bastards where every fucking presenter on their state telebision seems to be or have been a child molester. Might as well be Pakistan w/ "honor" murders everywhere.)

Anti-Decoration Day

I wish I waswere in the land of cotton,
Old times there are not forgotten
Were I in Dixie, I'd visit some of their run-down cemeteries & knock over the headstones of all the traitorous losers.

The Lies Never Stop

Where the hell's the giant fucking bogus matchstick I was promised? Do you see it in this picture? I don't!
Would've been attached to the newsrack on the left, if it had existed! "Why bother?" indeed. Last time I leave the bunker for anything. Stinking humanoids are beneath contempt, but I will nonetheless take the time to be contemptuous, because I am nothing if not a giving human being.

Ptui!!

Man Up Yourself, John Kerry.
Why Are Bush & Cheney Still Free?
It's Not As If They're Hiding In Russia.*

When did John Kerry revert to Naziism, when he whored himself to that woman who married her first husband for his catsup/ketchup money? Death to the aristocracy of every nation.
To demonstrate the moral superiority Secretary Kerry does not hold, & apparently hasn't for some fucking time, here he & his wife the money-grubber are seen dining w/ murderer Assad of Syria & his wife. Nice.
Just a guess, but no one in that photograph (including the flunkies & the other diners) should be allowed to continue taking oxygen from human beings. Or plants, for that matter. ZERO-TOLERANCE FOR MURDERING SCUM!

Same Sad Story

I'd Rather Drown In My Own Vomit ...

(or someone else's, even) ... than

Watch Journey’s Steve Perry perform
for the first time in about 20 years

I thought it was illegal to scream "Fire!" in a crowded theater. (Or even in a theater where something called "Eels" are pre-forming.)

But please, don't stop believing that everything's made of shit & we're all dying, of which the above is further evidence. How much more proof do you need before you give up? (And why link? It's from Salon.com if you care. Which you shouldn't, except for being concerned w/ the general awfulness of a culture that's been in decline since I was born. Coincidence? I hope not.)

Speaking of a culture in decline (not that it was ever much to be excited over) is there anything publicly available more chalk-on-a-blackboard than the jingle to the inane Micro & Soft adverts for whatever shit they & Russell Wilson are trying to hump to you morons? Then I remember that the jingles on today's advertising aren't jingles, but allegedly real songs that are such putridly non-offensive suck-fests they can be used to sell crap to morons. Although the general squawkiness & impression that the singer is seriously constipated & doing her very best to force something out the way it came in not only offends me but hurts my ears.
File this one under: "We've established what you are, we're just negotiating price now."

And Sweet Blood of Jesus, here's the culprit: Just. Fucking. Awful. Lame. Good-Time. Music. An offense against humanity as is, but when it's PERFORMED AT THE MALL★WART SOUNDCHECK™, presented by Dove®, it reaches an entirely new level of what New York State law so colorfully expresses as depraved indifference.
Meteors & asteroids are not nearly enough. I DEMAND that the sun go nova & eliminate all evidence by reducing this solar system to sub-atomic particles. NOW!

You'll Get Just What You Deserve, Good & Hard!

Note that everything here is only worse 30 yrs. later.
Why bother, in-fucking-deed?

End Of The Line

It's official: I've now photographed everything worth the electrons in areas I ordinarily visit for foraging. Look at this: Nothing but dull.
Shouldn't those palms be trimmed? It'd be a shame if a wildfire started in an area where the humanoids live like rats in a cage. And it would really be awful for the rats that live in the palms.

Close Call For Leaf-Blowing Slob

Minutes after the death of the roaches below, the lazy slob w/ the gas blower came by the window. Fortunately (for him) I was already awake. What he's doing is still a violation of something, even if it didn't wake me. Had he actually awakened me, he would be walking around w/ that thing blowing up his lazy slob ass.
video
So, a second complaint is on its way, & if he's out there next Tuesday, uh, I can count on you all for bail money, right?

The Miracle Of Birth & Death

Wandered into the kitchen for the day's first cuppa kawffee, noted several small bugs moving around southeast of the sink, thought "Fuck, now ants?"

Closer examination revealed they were roaches that had just hatched from an egg sac (case?) hidden behind the jar holding the dish wand. Coouldn't have awakened at a better time. Operative phrase? "Were roaches."
The white foamy substance ain't necessarily soap.

Intellectual Property Theft Is Theft

No not the drooling idiocy above, this, below, which appeared when I attempted to preview the two & a half new assholes I ripped "Thom Paine." His little load just came along for the ride when we copied this:
At most? Fuck me, at most.

We Steal More Intellectual Property:
FOR HOW LONG??

In one of those Andrew Sullivan moves, TPM head honcho Josh Marshall picks a corresp. to glow in the reflection of Marshall's big brass ego. We'll grant that he usually picks a good one, but we just wanted to demonstrate as clearly as possible that we could be twice the ass Mr. Marshall is if anyone wanted to give us an on-line empire.

So. TPM reader [initials redacted] (Because WEB OF EVIL is soooo concerned about a stranger's privacy. Really, what could happen beyond some gun nut fuck losing what little sanity it has & stalking & killing [initials redacted] for the crime of anti-gun-speak?):
For how long do we as a society continue to sublimate the reality that (mostly) young people are being massacred every day in cities all over this country--a very concrete, visible, measurable disaster--to a romantic fantasy cherished by a minority of Americans about heroically fighting off some secret government army that is planning to move in and turn us into, oh I don't know, Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany or who knows what inchoate mashup of bogeys that burns in their imaginations. [sic]
The United States still has the most powerful military in the world despite the damage done to it in recent years, so any action-movie scenario of rugged stubble-chinned men with their automatic weapons standing in front of the women-folk at the doors of their homes facing down the 1st Infantry is, of course, just that: a stale movie script.
The cherished terror of a great left-wing conspiracy and its secret army assumes that the hapless and hemorrhaging federal government, which could not keep Bradley Manning or Ed Snowden quiet, is capable of keeping this army and these plans secret. Another summer blockbuster.
I don't need to go on. Meanwhile, real Americans are bleeding and dying in their hundreds on our real streets due to real, uncontrolled gun violence. They don't get to pursue life, liberty, or happiness. But the rights of these dead kids, apparently, don't have much weight compared to some people's right to cherish hot fantasies of what it means to be an American.
Too damn bad the truth (Truth, hell, this is merely rational common sense.) is in one ear & out the other w/ the sheep. Let alone the scared sheep w/ all the guns.

Lest We Forget: NEVER VOLUNTEER!

They died w/ their boots on. For Exxon.
Condemning the “troops”—a term coined during the Gulf War—is almost unthinkable. And it won’t win you any awards. “Troops” are a monolithic entity, a cohesive group of pride-inspiring order-takers. Whereas an individual soldier is accountable for his or her actions, the “troops” are too abstract to blame. For Americans, there are only bad apples, never bad orchards.

But what kind of world would we rather live in: one where fools are admired for being fooled and murderers are extolled for murdering, or one where we have the capacity to step back and say, “I don’t care who told you to do what and why: You’re still an asshole!” Personally, I’d rather live in a world where people who act like retards are treated like retards: executed in Texas

Americans fear the truth. It’s the slipperiest slope of all. Once we start extending responsibility beyond those who gave orders to those who took them, it won’t be long before we’re blaming ourselves. And we can’t have that.

Exaggeration

There Some Americans There?

Nope, they're all out wasting their slave wages on plastic slave-labor gewgaws & gimcracks to honor the noble dead.

Adding to The White Noise Of The Blogocracy*

From The Guardian (Because we reject all United Snakes news sources. No, ha ha is joke, even the fuggin' Guardian uses the AP.) some loudmouth who won't even wait until the bodies are cold*:
The father of one of the six college students killed in California on Friday has repeated his call for stricter gun laws and condemned the US government and powerful gun lobby for failing to enact change.

"We're all proud to be Americans,”† Richard Martinez said. “But what kind of message does it send to the world when we have such a rudderless bunch of idiots in government?"

[...]

Martinez, the father of Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez, 20, of Los Osos, California, has condemned the National Rifle Association and lax US gun laws multiple times since the incident.

On Monday, he told HLN his son died at an Isla Vista delicatessen because of Congress’s failure to pass substantial gun legislation in the wake of mass shootings including the December 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook elementary in Connecticut, in which 20 children and six adults were killed. [Already down America's memory hole. Have those bodies cooled enough yet? — M.B.]

“Have we learned nothing?” Martinez asked. “These things are going to continue until somebody does something, so where the hell is the leadership?

“My kid died because nobody responded to what occurred at Sandy Hook. Those parents lost little kids. It’s bad enough that I lost my 20-year-old, but I had 20 years with my son. That’s all I’ll ever have but those people lost their children at six and seven years old.

“How do you think they feel? Who’s talking to them now? Who’s doing anything for them now?”
[I despise HLN. It's crap like CNN, it adds the horrid Nancy Grace, & neither networks' videos embed for shit. And apparently the latest Chrome update is an equal clusterfuck. Videos won't show in preview, & other problems. To hell w/ everything. — M.B., fed up to his gills!]

Other noise: "Joe the fucking not-plumber": "As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights."

These people live among us:
In response, a website popular with Pick-Up Artists is arguing that “six lives would have been saved” if there were a societal mechanism for men to learn “game” and “masculinity” and that “more people will die unless you give men sexual options.”
Do we have to teach these jagoffs about masturbation, too?

*Really, Facebook "Friend" who then deleted these two messages left in response to my posting this & this on Facebook? Both of which are more concerned w/ the AP's crummy &/or prevaricating reportage, than screaming about the body count. (Gmail, baby. Nothing disappers!)
"Calm down, Bouf. Wait till the bodies cool."
"No, I'm not saying that. But getting caught up in the blogocracy's post-tragedy scream-off isn't settling anything. It just adds to the white noise."
I'm not a medical professional, but I'm sure the bodies have been cold since Saturday night. As have thousands of other gun-dead bodies.

When is society's approved waiting period over? Tomorrow, when America's back at work & already forgetting? Next wk.? June? The end of next quarter? The second anniversary of Sandy Hook? 2016? (Nope, no discussion in an election yr., because democracy!) A decade? WHEN?

And I'd love to know how this will be "settled." By calming down & waiting for the "rudderless" politicians to get around to it?

60+ yrs. of this world of murderers and thieves, of hatred and jealousy & of death & monstrosities like "Joe The NOT-Plumber" & I'm supposed to "calm down?" A little late now. Maybe if fewer people did "calm down ..."

†Why, exactly? ("We're No.1 in Gun Murders!!! Rah-rah-sis-boom-bah!!!" Is that it?) I'm horrified by this country, as anyone who wasn't socialized into believing the bullshit would be.

Property Is Theft

The fucking nerve of corporate Nazis (As in: "Asia's slave-lords" two items down.):
An international agreement to improve safety in Bangladesh's clothing factories is facing the threat of legal action as factory owners demand compensation for the cost of closures and repair work.

With some repair programmes expected to take months, factory owners say they cannot shoulder the costs of paying staff while factories are closed, alongside the expense of some major works needed to ensure buildings are safe. The building overhauls are being carried out in the wake of the collapse of the Rana Plaza complex in Dhaka last year, in which 1,138 people were killed.

[...]

"This was always going to be a topic of negotation. [sic fucks] Brands don't want to commit to paying so that rich factory owners who have just pocketed the profits and not been spending on their factories for years continue to do so. There was obviously going to be disruption, if there was no disruption there would be not [sic again] change," she said.
Oh, too damn bad, sorry not sorry, die pigs! In a truly free market democracy "rich factory owners" would be hanging from gibbets, Mussolini-style, until the buzzards/vultures have picked their bones clean.
Solution to this mess? Stop wearing ugly mass-produced-by-slave-labor clothes, conformist sheep!!

But What I Really Want To Do Is Direct

Ha ha, it's extra funny because no-one-wants-to-fuck-me-boy's father was a director.
As a matter of fact, there is a disturbing trend here (although the cartoon was probably coincidental): Directors!
2001 mass killing
As grisly as it was, the setting wasn't the first time that Isla Vista has known a mass killing, especially by a motorist.

In 2001, David Attias, son of film director Daniel Attias, ran over five people in Isla Vista, killing four of them, and exclaimed he was the "angel of death."

Attias was convicted of four murders in 2002, but a jury later ruled him not guilty by reason of insanity. Attias was then sent to a California mental hospital.
Let's take a closer look at DGA members & their families. Are they all entitled pricks? (Also, licensed drivers, who are killing us each time they start their engines, even if they don't hit anyone.)

Euro Trash

A lovely fucking memorial for all the Americans who died saving "The Continent" from itself. Fuck you, Old World.
By Kap, Cagle Cartoons, Spain
MANIFESTO: One of these days the lessons of history must be applied permanently to the Major Land Mass, from the scum of U.K.I.P. east to Asia's slave-lords. W/ a detour through Africa & its child sex-slavers & legalized homophobia. And soon, we hope.

Then we start cleaning house here. The flower of American youth (O.K., O.K., actually the weeds who were too stupid to make the other guy die for his country.) shouldn't have died to eliminate royalty & Nazis over there only to see aristocracy, fascism & theocracy come to power in the New World, should they?

"And you heard who he blamed there ..."

Longer video of Mr. Martinez continues to appear, further putting the lie to the AP's crap reporting.

AP Caught Lying About Father Of Gun Victim

The Associated Press, in the person of California News Editor Frank Baker, has just blatantly lied & mis- or non-quoted the father of one of the recent victims of gun violence in this nation.
Beyond fucking belief. Watch the video:Do you see Mr. Martinez "dissolving" into tears? Or "falling to his knees?" I certainly don't.

UPDATE (1556PDT, 25 May 2014): A slightly longer version of the video (now embedded) does show Mr. Martinez overwhelmed w/ grief, though not as he "stepped from the podium." It's still lousy reporting. [End UPDATE.]

And did Mr. Martinez mention "gun laws" & "lobbyists?" No, he called out "craven, irresponsible politicians & the N.R.A."

More liberal media bias, I guess. I urge anyone w/ any kind of platform to bring this right-wing bullshit to the attention of their audience. #APLies!

P.S. (1621PDT, 25 May 2014): In such a rush I forgot credit: purplehead at M,P,S led me to the Seattle Times/AP story (literally) where I caught the contradictions! And Tengrain of M,P,S kindly took my suggestion & ran therew/! Probably 'cause he knows a good story when he sees one, rather than due to any suggestions.

"Y'all get tired of hearing me say that shit ..."

video
No we don't.

Beckett had a freaking rib removed
In cases where the first rib is compressing a vein, artery, or the nerve bundle, the first rib and scalene muscles and any compressive fibrous tissue can be removed. This procedure is called a First rib resection and scalenectomy and involves going through the underarm area or back of the neck area and removing the first rib, scalene muscles, and any compressive fibrous tissue to open the area to allow increased blood flow and/or reduce nerve compression.
in July of last yr. to relieve thoracic outlet syndrome. Ouch!

Not Bad News For Once

Dodger Josh Beckett tosses no-hitter against Phils, says "shit" live on tee vee.

Creep Of The Day

This guy is creepy, & the libertarian is even worse, w/ his voice & general smarm. Bet he was as popular as acne in high school. And BINGO, a libertarian was born, & the lies start.

Goateed Austerity Goon

People who pay attention to assholes on the iNternet (Hey, I'm both!) will probably have noted that iNternet asshole Michael Kinsley, off everyone's radar for a while because mediocrity is his game, has opened his idiot yap & licked the spittle of the wealthy, the powerful & the just plain old government for whom he toadies. (Note to self: Synonyms for lickspittle & toady should be called into use soon.) And if you needed proof of his hackitude, look what was surrounding his yap when he opened it: A wingnut face-mullet.
Is he still waiting for it to come in? This reporter could grow a better one. Ugly tie, too. (Like his soul.)
We recently noted that many right wing ninnies, reactionaries & theocrats had adopted this style, which, 30+ yrs. ago may have been frightening (SATAN! DEMONS!) or something for about half-an-hr., but now has already been sported & thrown in history's dustbin by such forward-looking luminaries as brain-dead Scientologist John Travolta. And that was some yrs. ago.

So has Kinsley completely lost it? Textual Analysis indicates he never had it, & has been a tool in the firm grip of the rulers since he found how just easy sucking up was. Probably at the Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, also the alma mater of Mitt Romney. Hullabaloo goes historical, w/ quotes from The Kinz which immediately deflate the opening line here:
People tell me — they insist, in fact — that there was a time, long ago, when Michael Kinsley wrote good columns and had interesting things to say.
Except the typist there, not being an idiot like Kinsley, didn't mean a word of it.

Unspeakable sack of suck-up. I hope the asshole fucking twitches to death.

Words From A Victim's Father

“Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights, what about Chris’s right to live? When will this insanity stop?”

[Video of angrily grieving father will be available later. We have a life. And we're hungry.]
Later:
Yeah, pin-dicks of the N.R.A. As far as politicians I was personally revolted that two S.B. County Supervisors were at the press conference & were introduced by Sheriff Toadie. What have any of them ever done about anything?

BREAKING NEWS CONFERENCE RECAP

Stabbed his three roomies to death, & hit a bicyclist w/ his car. Man. Nothing that moved was safe. That is some fucking rage. (Yes, I know ex-fucking-actly how he feels.) And hit a second bicyclist.

10 locations, 12 crime scenes: Let's all hear it for cars & guns! Three 9mm handguns in the car, all of them legally purchased & registered to the suspect. 34 10-round mags for his two Sigs, & seven 10-round mags for his Glock.

And he sure fooled the "well-trained" cops. "Well-trained cops" is the new "military intelligence" for illustrating an oxymoron.

This is all too exciting, I have go out & ... get something to eat.

American Moloch

[TRIGGER WARNING: Stolen (intellectual) property.]
Special guest post from Garry Wills. (Hope he doesn't mind, & come after me w/ a gun.)
Few crimes are more harshly forbidden in the Old Testament than sacrifice to the god Moloch (for which see Leviticus 18.21, 20.1-5). The sacrifice referred to was of living children consumed in the fires of offering to Moloch. Ever since then, worship of Moloch has been the sign of a deeply degraded culture. Ancient Romans justified the destruction of Carthage by noting that children were sacrificed to Moloch there. Milton represented Moloch as the first pagan god who joined Satan’s war on humankind:
First Moloch, horrid king, besmear’d with blood
Of human sacrifice, and parents’ tears,
Though for the noise of Drums and Timbrels loud
Their children’s cries unheard, that pass’d through fire
To his grim idol. (Paradise Lost 1.392-96)
Read again those lines, with recent images seared into our brains—“besmeared with blood” and “parents’ tears.” They give the real meaning of what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School Friday morning. That horror cannot be blamed just on one unhinged person. It was the sacrifice we as a culture made, and continually make, to our demonic god. We guarantee that crazed man after crazed man will have a flood of killing power readily supplied him. We have to make that offering, out of devotion to our Moloch, our god. The gun is our Moloch. We sacrifice children to him daily—sometimes, as at Sandy Hook, by directly throwing them into the fire-hose of bullets from our protected private killing machines, sometimes by blighting our children’s lives by the death of a parent, a schoolmate, a teacher, a protector. Sometimes this is done by mass killings (eight this year), sometimes by private offerings to the god (thousands this year).

The gun is not a mere tool, a bit of technology, a political issue, a point of debate. It is an object of reverence. Devotion to it precludes interruption with the sacrifices it entails. Like most gods, it does what it will, and cannot be questioned. Its acolytes think it is capable only of good things. It guarantees life and safety and freedom. It even guarantees law. Law grows from it. Then how can law question it?

Its power to do good is matched by its incapacity to do anything wrong. It cannot kill. Thwarting the god is what kills. If it seems to kill, that is only because the god’s bottomless appetite for death has not been adequately fed. The answer to problems caused by guns is more guns, millions of guns, guns everywhere, carried openly, carried secretly, in bars, in churches, in offices, in government buildings. Only the lack of guns can be a curse, not their beneficent omnipresence.

Adoration of Moloch permeates the country, imposing a hushed silence as he works his will. One cannot question his rites, even as the blood is gushing through the idol’s teeth. The White House spokesman invokes the silence of traditional in religious ceremony. “It is not the time” to question Moloch. No time is right for showing disrespect for Moloch.

The fact that the gun is a reverenced god can be seen in its manifold and apparently resistless powers. How do we worship it? Let us count the ways:
1. It has the power to destroy the reasoning process. It forbids making logical connections. We are required to deny that there is any connection between the fact that we have the greatest number of guns in private hands and the greatest number of deaths from them. Denial on this scale always comes from or is protected by religious fundamentalism. Thus do we deny global warming, or evolution, or biblical errancy. Reason is helpless before such abject faith.

2. It has the power to turn all our politicians as a class into invertebrate and mute attendants at the shrine. None dare suggest that Moloch can in any way be reined in without being denounced by the pope of this religion, National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre, as trying to destroy Moloch, to take away all guns. They whimper and say they never entertained such heresy. Many flourish their guns while campaigning, or boast that they have themselves hunted “varmints.” Better that the children die or their lives be blasted than that a politician should risk an election against the dread sentence of NRA excommunication.

3. It has the power to distort our constitutional thinking. It says that the right to “bear arms,” a military term, gives anyone, anywhere in our country, the power to mow down civilians with military weapons. Even the Supreme Court has been cowed, reversing its own long history of recognizing that the Second Amendment applied to militias. Now the court feels bound to guarantee that any every madman can indulge his “religion” of slaughter. Moloch brooks no dissent, even from the highest court in the land.
Though LaPierre is the pope of this religion, its most successful Peter the Hermit, preaching the crusade for Moloch, was Charlton Heston, a symbol of the Americanism of loving guns. I have often thought that we should raise a statue of Heston at each of the many sites of multiple murders around our land. We would soon have armies of statues, whole droves of Heston acolytes standing sentry at the shrines of Moloch dotting the landscape. Molochism is the one religion that can never be separated from the state. The state itself bows down to Moloch, and protects the sacrifices made to him. So let us celebrate the falling bodies and rising statues as a demonstration of our fealty, our bondage, to the great god Gun.
December 15, 2012, 5:25 p.m.

How many times will we have to steal this from Mr. Wills & The NYRB before Moloch is stopped?

Video Bonus

[TRIGGER WARNING: Sick fuck later pulls a trigger.]
Fortunately, some are on the ball & grabbed it before H&S at GoogTube™ fucked w/ the First Amendment. Here in all his sociopathic glory, a nasty rich person in his BMW:
Typical Southern Californian; most at home in his car. ("Don't hide in your glass wheels.")

Of course, his parents must be a pair of winners, maybe he just didn't want to be at home or otherwise near them.

If you drop a child (The child is not your child, unless you are a fucking slave-holder.) on its head & the brain is damaged, causing sociopathy, turn the sociopath the fuck in! And if your parenting abilities are those of an insect that drops its eggs & then keeps on moving, stop fucking breeding!!

Fucking breeders.

Apparently You Were Warned;
The Chickens Roosted Anyway, America!

"Not all men!" (Just the sick fucks w/ guns & privilege.)

We don't like the "War Between The Sexes" label to be so literal.
Sheriff Brown also said authorities were looking at whether a YouTube video by someone named Elliot Rodger was connected to the incident. The video, titled "Retribution," shows a young man, in a car, discussing how he will have "revenge against humanity," for his existence of "loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires" "all because girls have never been attracted to me." He says of the girls who haven't been attracted to him that he will "punish you all for it."
That is some Men's Rights Advocacy. And may I add fuck you YouTube, you censorious pricks! How are we supposed to know, understand & protect ourselves from people like this w/o clear examples of what they are?
Google founders Larry "Hitler" Page & Stalin (the one w/ the Russian name, obvs.)
must love this violation of the First Amendment.
I suppose the Facebook jerks have removed the indulged pig murderer's page as well.

Catch-22: Women (or "girls") want nothing to do w/ him 'cause he's a psycho (Official Diagnosis™) & since they won't, he goes psycho. Lovely world we live in. Drove a BMW too. We have to do something about people w/ more money (or cars, or guns) than I (a perfectly sensible baseline for all human activity) have.

Seriously sociopathic:
From an updated local news article I read (I live about 45 mins from IV), it seems that his family and therapist reported him to the police recently due to his vlogs on YT among other things, and the police interviewed him ... They found him to be polite, calm and kind and dismissed the reports.
"Therapist?" It is to laugh, innit? But, laughing at therapy as I do & should, are cretinous pin-dick pseudo-macho gun-fondlers like police officers the best possible choices to "interview" someone who'd like to snap? Other than the possibility that pigs at the door might have set him off. In which case, good for whichever police dep't. is using its officers as bait. (Think about that for a minute, expendable coppers.)

From LAist, mostly. And this from the killer:
I take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one, the true alpha male. Yes, after I have annihilated every single girl in the sorority house, I'll take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there. All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure while I've had to rot in loneliness all these years. They all look down upon me every time I tried to join them, they've all treated me like a mouse.
What a loser. Normal people (me, as an example) would not be members of any club that would have us.
Gawker has the video on their site and the LA Times has a transcript, although we warn that the content is truly disturbing.
The only good that could come of any of this would be for the parents, therapist & incompetent police dep't. involved all to do life sentences for allowing, &, in the case of the parents, causing this.

Today On The Shit List

[TRIGGER WARNING: Fascist assholes, morons, consumers, idiots, wage-slavery, Jeff Bezos.]
Any website, weblog or other pile of iNternet crapola w/ an Amazon referral program or that even links to Amazon for a book description (I bet most of those who link get money if the damn book is purchased.) is about to get a rude note & a few (anatomically difficult, but you can do it if you try!!) suggestions from me, as well as dumped unceremoniously from the bog-roll. (Boy howdy, that'll show 'em!)

From The NYT's gadget fetishist, who's apparently worried only about how this might affect him & his pseudo-literate consumer pals.
Amazon is confirming its critics’ worst fears and it is an ugly spectacle to behold.

For years, authors and publishers have warned that Amazon, Jeff Bezos’ book-selling giant, would one day use its power for ill. Sure, so far, Amazon has marketed itself as a book buyer’s best friend. It sells books at terrifically low prices, it delivers them amazingly quickly, and it constantly invents new technologies to improve the way we read. Amazon has also invested heavily in publishing new authors and it has pushed exciting new formats made possible by electronic distribution.

Yet the literary community has always greeted Amazon’s moves with suspicion. The fear is mostly about the future. What will happen to books when Amazon controls the entire industry? How will authors and publishing houses reckon with Amazon’s unchecked power?

This week, as part of a contract dispute with the publisher Hachette, we’re seeing Amazon behaving at its worst. The company’s willingness to nakedly flex its anticompetitive muscle gives new cause for concern to anyone who cares about books — authors, publishers, but mainly customers.

[...]

Now Amazon is raising prices, removing ordering buttons, lengthening shipping times and monkeying with recommendation algorithms. Do these sound like the moves of a man who cares about customers above all else?
Manjoo, you corporate lickspittle, you want an "ugly spectacle to behold," what of the way Bezos The Glibertarian Clown doesn't give shit one about his employees, either? Maybe someone who wasn't a tunnel-visioned jerk could have figured which direction Super-Bozo was going if they gave a shit about human beings treated like crap rather than having a hissy fit about how mean Amazon is to consuming sheep like the author.

Potential targets for people's action: Their lockers,
Smash screen to start
& their delivery vehicles.
Ssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!
A sledgehammer & a sharp strong blade are all you'll need. (Maybe a getaway vehicle too.)

More Proof Of The Failure Of Democracy

“Worse than Reagan”:
Meet the violent chauvinist now leading India, Narendra Modi

The world's largest democracy's new leader is a committed neoliberal everyone should worry about,
an expert explains

Oh, swell. Sounds as if this asshat wants to declare jihad on any remaining Muslims Indians haven't yet killed or driven out of their Hindu hellhole. I hope Modi starts a nuclear war w/ the morons in the next shithole west (or vice versa: Pakistan is chock full of idiots too) & they all disappear from the face of the earth.

Fucking Hindus.

Same Shit, Different Shithole

Here's your world-wide dia-fucking-lectic: Hicks in the sticks vs. humanoid city dwellers. A never-ending war w/ which the city dwellers will have to deal, because (some of them) are capable of reason.

Ukip results reveal divide between London
and rest of England

Experts estimate Ukip has polled just 7% in the capital,
compared with more than 20% in the rest of the country
Just shut up & grow, harvest & slaughter our food for us, if you morons haven't inbred yourselves to a condition where you can't even handle that. Obviously rural clowns are incapable of voting. Damn rube morons.

While I'm pissed at everything, what, Guardian, is this bit where you turn acronyms into fucking words? It's not "Nasa," or "Nato," it's N.A.S.A. & N.A.T.O. (If you aren't purists I suppose we'll let you get away w/ not using the periods.) likewise this "Ukip" crap. Fucking Limeys.

(Hey, this may have solved any how-to-wrap-shit-up-cleverly problem. Just a quick insulting dismissal of who, what or whomever. As we did w/ "Pig." two items down.)

Twits In Politics

An outraged citizen attempts to contact the Mayor of Los Angeles, a dynast* who is the son of the former L.A. County D.A., & whose flunkies in his councilmanic office never returned 'phone calls I made to them about a serious & legitimate issue involving a city agency.

Not that murdering thug cops aren't a serious issue either; they just haven't killed me yet.

*WHEN DO WE START KILLING THE ARISTOCRATS? (Emphasizing the label. I won't be here forever, you know.)

Today In Family Values: Blame The "Demons"

TRIGGER WARNING: People are screwed-up pieces of shit who will kill their own children.
There are few clues but a lot of speculation about what led a mother to stab her three daughters in their home earlier this week.

Carol Coronado, 30, was recovering at Torrance Memorial Medical Center from self-inflicted, though not life-threatening wounds. She's expected to be arrested and charged with the murders of her three daughters once she's released. An autopsy was scheduled yesterday to figure out whether there was any other cause of death besides the stabbings, but the coroner's office told LAist today that they weren't releasing any information on the case.

Family members and neighbors say that the girls' deaths on Tuesday caught them off-guard. Carol's husband Rudy Coronado told a reporter that she must have been possessed by a demon. His sister Sandra Coronado told The Daily Breeze, "He says that there’s something in her that he didn’t see. Something in her eyes. I don’t know."

Carol called her mother in the morning to tell her that she felt like she was "going crazy," neighbors said. Carol's mother told Sandra to call her. When she did, Carol said she was exhausted, but she planned to take one of her daughters to the doctor that day. Sandra offered to take the other girls and watch them during the appointment.

Neighbors report that when police brought Carol out of her home, she looked dazed. Ashley Madrid told the Los Angeles Times, "She had a zoned-out look and was just looking down. She had dry blood smeared on her face and legs."

Authorities found the bodies of 2-1/2-year-old Sophia, 16-month-old Yazmine and 2-month-old Xenia laid out on a bed after they were stabbed, Lt. Dave Coleman told the Daily Breeze: "The way the injuries occurred, they weren't sleeping. She lined them up on the bed. They were neatly placed on the bed."

Carol Coronado had never been reported to the Department of Children and Family Services. Investigators are looking into whether she might have been on drugs or suffering from postpartum depression. Mental health experts can't comment on the specifics of the case, because there is still so little information. But Phillip Resnick, the director of forensic psychiatry at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, told The Los Angeles Register that it can be difficult for women suffering from postpartum depression or mental health issues to get help: "A woman may be so ashamed she won’t reveal problems to a doctor. They won’t reveal thoughts of killing their children, because they’re fearful a social worker will take their children away."

Carol Coronado served in the Army for a short time over 10 years ago and had to leave because of medical reasons, according to KNX. She was taking online classes while staying home with the kids.

Relatives said that the couple fought about housekeeping. Carol would ask relatives to watch her girls from time-to-time, so she could clean the house and do homework. Sandra Coronado told The Daily Breeze, "My brother wanted the house clean for his girls. He wanted to come home to a home-cooked meal."
Seems as if the husband was the "demon who possessed his wife." Pig.

Thug Life

Almost-killer cop:
An LAPD officer was arrested this week after his estranged wife reported he strangled her until she passed out and then tied her up.

Jose Robert Figueroa, 29, was charged on Wednesday for attempted murder, injuring a spouse and making criminal threats, according to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office.
Where in hell do they find these pieces of shit? Do they shanghai them from the jails where they all belong in the first place?

And can you guess which group I'm prejudiced against?

Nice Rant About The Next To Useless Prez

This piece first appeared at CounterPunch.
If it’s spring, it must be time for Barack Obama’s annual drive-by of black America, where he piously lectures African-Americans on the state of their lives. Though the tinsel adorning his rhetorical flourishes is getting somewhat frayed, the president didn’t disappoint this year. Indeed, he treated the nation to two speeches on civil rights in a single week–a rare double-header for the commander of drones.
On April 10, Obama could be found in Texas, delivering an arid speech at the LBJ Presidential Library, studded with pompous non-sequiturs (“history not only travels forwards, it travels backwards”) and awkward allusions to civil rights leaders, such as Martin Luther King, for whom Obama has little natural affinity.
The main takeaway from the Austin speech was that the legislative landmarks of the mid-1960s were about as good as it’s ever going to get. “Half a century later, the laws LBJ passed are now as fundamental to our conception of ourselves and our democracy as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,” Obama said. There was no mention of new legislation or programs to address unemployment, job discrimination, malnutrition, decaying public schools or poverty. At best Obama made a rather timid call for the defense of the old Johnson era laws, which, in his tendentious narrative, are being gnawed away by the reactionary right.
As usual, Obama confessed no regrets, offered no apologies, copped to no transgressions against any of the battered ideals of the Great Society, even as that very week his administration quietly surpassed the mark of deporting two million undocumented immigrants. (Predictably, Michelle tweeted a few days later that she and Barack just loved the new Cesar Chavez movie.) What Obama doesn’t say outright, but surely believes, is that the brawny liberalism of LBJ is passé, a relic of a bygone political tradition, the legislative ruins of a former age. The president is, of course, the grinning face of neo-liberalism, an ideology that rejects legislative cures for the magical elixir of financial incentives and market-driven remedies. How’s that working out for you, Detroit?
Obama is a master of casual condescension. His true gift as an orator is in making you feel as if your misfortunes in life–losing your job, being evicted from your house, going bankrupt–are the products of your own lack of initiative or some moral failing. And then, remarkably, he entices the victims into applauding their own humiliation. That’s a kind of political prestidigitation even Reagan, with his strange power of seduction, couldn’t quite pull off.
This bag of ineluctable parlor tricks was on full-display a few days later in New York, when Obama spoke at the National Action Network conference. NAN is run by Rev. Al Sharpton, who had, only days earlier, been outed as a former FBI snitch, having deployed a bugged briefcase in attempts to gather damaging information on both mobsters and, more pungently, black radicals. No wonder Sharpton has a running gig on MSNBC.
Obama gave a jauntier talk at the NAN convention, tuning his banal homilies to the rhythms of a Jay-Z rap. You know: Uptown and sanctimonious. His mission that day was to skewer Republicans (easy enough) and offer up some rationale for Sharpton’s troops to remain loyal retainers of the Democratic Party (a more vexing challenge). In the end, he chose to present himself as a vigorous champion of the Voting Rights Act and proclaimed the election of Democrats in the midterms as the last line of defense for the franchise. The audience lapped it up, naturally. After all, he’d made a special visit just to see them.
But in the context of his presidency (or any president since LBJ, for that matter), what does the right to vote mean, if there’s no one to vote for? No one who represents your interests? No one who will speak for you? If each pull of the ballot lever simply rings up the same merciless policies?
The returns are in on the Obama economy. He saved Wall Street, bailed out the banks, declined to prosecute felonious executives and redistributed billions upward into the off-shore accounts of the mega-rich. Pretty much everyone else got the shaft. But no community has fared worse under Obama, than urban blacks. The plight of black Americans is more extreme today than when Obama assumed command. Fresh evidence of this travesty rolls in every day. On April 1, a report by the Ann Casey Foundation described the conditions of black children as being “dire,” significantly worse, in terms of health, nutrition, education and housing, than even Native American children. This bleak assessment received scant attention in the national press.
The new Jim Crow extends far beyond the savage politics of mass incarceration, documented in such striking detail by Michelle Alexander. The American economy is more and more segregated and hostile to the aspirations of minorities. The black unemployment rate remains twice that of whites, a disparity that has not narrowed over the course of Obama’s term. In fact, it’s almost certainly widened since blacks are much more likely to be part of the long-term unemployed and thus uncounted. Even during the so-called recovery, black unemployment rates remained far above recession levels.
The income gap between blacks and whites is widening, with white workers earning nearly $20,000 more a year on average than blacks. The wealth disparity is even more extreme. A recent report by the Urban Institute reveals that family wealth for whites is more than six-times that of blacks, a gap of more than $450,000 per family. Meanwhile, public schools are more segregated than at anytime since 1970.
The insidious economic violence of everyday life in America grinds on, all but unnoticed except by those on the receiving end. Welcome to the economics of contempt.
