Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.
H. L. Mencken
US editor (1880 - 1956)
The rat bastard who knows my secret identity & sent the fucking L.A.P.D. to pound on my door to check on me because I express myself honestly & truthfully in this space can go fuck him or herself.

Unlike you, schmuck, I'm not so foolish as to advertise when I'm ready. (My chief element is surprise. Also, I'm a disembodied iNternet entity & couldn't hold a gun if I wanted to.) So why don't you call the F.B.I. now, filthy nanny-state coward? Afraid to give me a call & check? Completely lacking a sense of humor or comprehension of hyperbole? You could call the police & point out the millions of outrages actually committed by society's capitalist criminals every day of the wk. & hear their non-response before condemning me for suggesting direct action is the only solution, you know.

Christ, what a chicken-shit asshole! Your entirely bogus concern in not in the least bit appreciated. (Are you trying to make me angrier? That might not be a good move.)

Also in alienated people who hate your smug world of shit & pain. Not my hero.

And I'll just note in passing that as I type this terrorist threat-making asshole Vanderbilt Coach Kevin Stallings is being paid to coach a basketball game. Fuck you. My resolve is tripled.

What's The Matter W/ Kansas?

Bullshit morality, that's what:
But Tea Party conservatives proceed from a radically different set of assumptions. Their view of the economy is not pragmatic but deeply moralistic. They do not see it as primarily a system within which actors pursue their personal ends; they see it as a stage on which selves confront the worldly consequences of their fallen nature. Work is not a matter of self-expression or self-fulfillment; it is an ordeal, a trial. It tests our ability to accept the burdens of struggle and privation imposed on us by original sin. For the Tea Party, economic life is merely another instance of spiritual judgment. Attempts to ameliorate hardship are not simply inefficient or ineffective: they are attempts to evade the divine will, to make easy what God has made hard. And as we all arrive at the moment of judgment alone, they also tempt us into another error — that of believing that others will take our part and intercede on our behalf. They will not, because they cannot. God comes to each of us singly, in isolation. Human efforts to pretend otherwise — the safety net, the welfare state — are always destructive of character and doomed to failure. They may fill our stomachs and lighten our labors, but in doing so they endanger and pervert our souls. (Neglect of the deeply moralistic nature of right-wing economic thought lurks behind many of Thomas Frank’s perplexities about the (allegedly) paradoxical behavior of voters out in the Heartland. Frank thinks they vote against their own self-interest, and is puzzled. But they take a very different view of the selves whose interests Frank wants them to promote. The short answer to “What’s the matter with Kansas?” is: Kansans.)

I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU,
FUCKING HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!

Enough, you rat bastard mother-fuckers. I merely state to a member of management at Nazi shit-hole Borders Books Music Videos + A Cafe "I have to get out of this place before I kill someone" & I'm suspended for a wk. until the brain-dead local corporate drones can consult w/ the other fucking Nazis in Ann Arbor about firing me, which they did because they're fucking cowards I should have shot like rabid dogs.

But some cocksucker in a suit & a position of authority threatens his player/unpaid employee/student-athlete/slave w/ a very explicit threat & he is not even suspended? "Sportsmanship"? Fuck you people, it's over! I'm not taking any shit from any of you fucking assholes any longer. Sixty+ yrs. of your Babylonian world of shit & pain is 60+ yrs. too many!

So, a decision: Fuck your pathetic bourgeois conventions of "teeth". I won't be wasting credit on bullshit dentures, but will be headed to the nearest gun store to get something better for self-defense than mere teeth. And I won't have to pay back one penny, 'cause I'll be dead or in jail before the first card finishes the billing cycle.

P.S.: Not a joke. My anger is certainly real. Luckily for the Nazi Borders managers, I can't remember any of their names, or I'd find them & teach them the price of hypocrisy. And how'd loyalty to Borders work out, losers?

I repeat: I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU!!!!!

Here is an interesting factual sort of thing (We type "factual" because it's from POLITICO, & was the only thing of eight worth the look.)
5) Will Mike Huckabee be missed? Or are there no longer enough social conservatives at CPAC to care?Many social conservatives have felt increasingly marginalized at CPAC. What used to be a true big-tent event has been hijacked by libertarians, they believe. And the president of the pro-gay marriage Log Cabin Republicans will be speaking on a panel this year.

Those are some of the reasons why there are several more conferences and cattle calls for “values voters” than there used to be in Washington. And now that CPAC isn’t the only game in town any more, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee can justify skipping it.
Dime Store Psychology of the Right: Hatred of poor & working people in general doesn't seem to be enough for the theocratssocial conservatives. Do they need more specific (&, very conveniently, smaller) groups to fear & scapegoat than the libertarians w/ their more generalized contempt? Someone should look into that. Preferably w/ a painful & intrusive probe or operation of some sort.

Most Interesting Thing I've Seen
In A While

Wrasslin' Report

"Nature Boy" Ric flair hit 66 today, so here is some crap about him.

Today In Idaho

JesusFuckingChrist, lookit this death-worshiping bee-otch!!
In a deeply religious section of Idaho, a Republican state representative says that the state has no right to protect children from their parents who refuse them needed medical treatment in favor of faith healing.

“Children do die,” says Rep. Christy Perry. And it’s fine with her if Idaho children die in the name of God. Perry’s district includes many followers of a religious cult, Followers of Christ, that eschews medicine. She says that the sect’s members are more comfortable confronting death when it happens to their children.

“I’m not trying to sound callous, but [people calling for reform] want to act as if death is an anomaly. But it’s not. It’s a way of life,” she says.

Perry says that a proposed ban on faith-healing would violate the religious rights of her constituents. The legislation, which would limit faith exemptions for medical care in the state’s child neglect law was proposed after a string of preventable child deaths in Perry’s district. The 12 who died were children of sect members. Most of the children died from causes like pneumonia, sepsis and easily treatable cases of food poisoning.

But Perry argues that it’s well within the Canyon County sect’s First Amendment right to refuse medical care for their children on religious grounds. She says those trying to reform the laws are denying the sect their religious freedoms.

“Is it really because these children are dying more so than other children, or is this really about an attack on a religion you don’t agree with?” Perry told Aljazeera.

On her website, Perry ironically proclaims that she's "a pro life mother and grandmother and emphasizes her honor and value of all human life, born and unborn." Perry also claims she's "an ardent supporter of defending each child’s right to life."

Over the past 20 years, only six states have had children die due to their parents refusing them medical treatment in deference to faith healing. Idaho has the dubious distinction of having laws on the books that allowed a dozen children to die from easily treatable medical conditions in the past several years. Currently, Idaho’s law contains a religious exemption that allows parents from religious groups to use prayer as a substitute treatment for illnesses.

Former members of the group and their families are saying that the number of children who have died is far greater than what is being reported, and a coroner Vicki DeGeus-Morris, says she stopped performing autopsies on the children from the sect altogether.

“You can’t beat a child,” Linda Martin, a former sect member told Aljazeera. “To sit there and do absolutely nothing for a child except pray for them and watch them suffer? That’s just inhumane.”
Here's a Constitutional question: Can an American State be forced to secede? Regular legal question: Manslaughter or homicide?

Democracy At Work, In Its "Home"

The problem isn’t simply that the troika wants Greece to balance the budget; it wanted Greece to balance the budget by lowering wages and by imposing austerity on the labor force. But instead, the terms in which Varoufakis has suggested balancing the budget are to impose austerity on the financial class, on the tycoons, on the tax dodgers. And he said, okay, instead of lowering pensions to the workers, instead of shrinking the domestic market, instead of pursuing a self-defeating austerity, we’re going to raise two and a half billion from the powerful Greek tycoons. We’re going to collect the back taxes that they have. We’re going to crack down on illegal smuggling of oil and the other networks and on the real estate owners that have been avoiding taxes, because the Greek upper classes have become notorious for tax dodging.

And you'll fucking deserve it, too.
But something began to change in the 1980s. With the arrival of globalization and the Information Age, corporate stability gave way to rapid, unpredictable change. Corporations no longer saw workers as loyal partners and creative beings in a productive enterprise. Instead, they became commoditized assets on a balance sheet to be acquired and discarded to suit changing fortunes.

Meanwhile, corporations began to see the term “personnel” as synonymous with the support of employees and new workplace efficiency techniques such as Six Sigma created a need for corporate compliance overseers. So, those who were once responsible for advocating for employees were now embedded with management, becoming cold wardens of the workplace.

The rebranding of "personnel" to “human resources” signaled that employees were now resources to be managed like any other capital, such as finances, office equipment and property. Like a copy machine, it suggested that humans were to be used as much as possible and discarded when they wore out or their usefulness came to an end.

Today In Lawyering:
The Never-Ending Evasion

It just won't stop; sometimes it's so absurd I feel like sharing.

The headline alone is excellent evidence these buffoons really are so extreme they're beyond even self-parody; like everything from Hinderaker, Esq., I've ever stumbled across the first sentence makes me wonder just what the hell kind of a lawyer he is, & how he could possibly be good at any kind of lawyering. Because the subject suddenly of "intense interest to America's reporters" is "How/why is Rudy Giuliani such a colossal jerk? Was he raised by a hoodlum or something?" not "Is Obummer a Christian?" (Doesn't one need to understand what one has read in order to practice law?)

IS BARACK OBAMA NOW, OR HAS HE EVER BEEN, A CHRISTIAN?

Suddenly, President Obama’s religious beliefs are a subject of intense interest to America’s reporters. This is a marked contrast with 2008, when Obama’s religion (“God damn America!”) was considered off limits by reporters and editors. It is odd, though: one politician who won’t be asked about Obama’s religion is the only one who plausibly could answer the question, Obama himself.
It’s not just Obama’s religious beliefs, either. Ever since Rudy Giuliani ignited a firestorm by observing that Obama doesn’t seem to love America, the president’s patriotism and Communist associations, along with his religion, have been front and center. This morning, the Washington Post buttonholed Scott Walker to ask whether he thinks Obama is a Christian:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott K. Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian.
“I don’t know,” Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.
Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion.
“I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added. “You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?”
That’s not a bad answer, but Republicans need to push back more strongly against Democratic Party reporters. I would suggest something like:
Dan, that is a very stupid question. And not just stupid, but inappropriate. I have never met Barack Obama. How could I possibly comment on his religious views? It would be totally inappropriate for me to do so. Why would you ask me a question like that? If President Obama’s religion is of concern to you for some reason, I suggest you ask him about it. It is not of concern to me. Now, does someone else have a more relevant question?
Republican candidates should be prepared with similar answers on irrelevant topics like evolution (which was sprung on Walker when he was in England) as well as global warming, a more pertinent issue. On global warming, Republican candidates should be prepared to say things like:
Given that the IPCC cut its prediction of future warming in half at the end of 2013, the science obviously is not settled.
Or:
Am I a climate change denier? I don’t know what you mean by that. The Earth’s climate has been changing for millions of years, and it will continue changing as long as the Earth exists. I don’t know of anyone who denies that the climate changes. It always has, and always will. You do understand that we are living in a brief warm period between ice ages, don’t you?
Or:
Everything you just said is based on computer models that have deliberately been created in such a way as to predict warming. But we know for a fact that those models are wrong, because they predicted significant warming between 1998 and 2014, and atmospheric measurements show that the forecasted warming hasn’t happened. So the models are useless.
Or:
I am not sure why you are asking me about extreme weather events. You do understand that there have been a below average number of such events in recent years, don’t you?
On evolution:
Evolution is a tremendously interesting subject. There are multiple theories of evolution, but none of them has been able to command a scientific consensus because they all have problems. It would be a full-time job to keep track of all of the scientific literature on evolution, and since I have been busy as Governor of Wisconsin [or whatever], I haven’t had time to do that. There are a lot of scientists who could give you better answers to such questions than I can, if you are really interested in the subject. Which I doubt.
On “science”:
You just used the word “science,” but I don’t think you know what it means. Science is a method, not a body of dogma. “Science” doesn’t take positions on issues of public policy. So if there is a particular set of data that you want to ask me about, you need to be more specific.
In general, Republicans need to push back aggressively against the many ambushes that will be sprung by Democratic Party reporters. They need to foresee the topics that will be raised, and be prepared with answers that, where possible, make the story about the reporter and his or her bias. Republicans have this going for them: Americans hate the news media, because they correctly see it as biased, corrupt and lazy. So Republicans shouldn’t be afraid to fight back aggressively.
Parody? No one can say.

Nonetheless, he may be a better lawyer than I gave him credit for: Note the weaseling in the proposed evolution answer, sort of not really denying evolution, or even mentioning creationism, but a vague sop to different theories ("Teach the controversy!") of evolution. This is fun too: "It would be a full-time job to keep track of all of the scientific literature on evolution." Really? Someone's in for a surprise when they discover what you can keep track of on this new-fangled iNternetWorldWideWeb dealie.

And the concluding paragraph. Is "Don't answer anything potentially embarrassing; immediately scream bias & make it about/insult the reporter" best practice for dealing w/ the press? It's as if he knows there are no answers acceptable to both the primary voters who do "hate the news media" (not all Americans, just those lost in the loon bubble) & to, for lack of a better term, normal people, many of whom wish the media was better w/o actively "hating" it & most of whom just don't care.

Still, G.O.Presidential wanna-bes, better to be thought a weaselly jerk than to announce/admit actual beliefs & policies & thereby commit political suicide anywhere but in the reddest zones; do follow your mouthpiece's advice & fight back. Aggressively!

Today In Bizarre Delusions

Drooling literal paranoid Sher Zieve has gotten the message that swarthy Catholics & evangelicals from south of the border are no longer sufficient to frighten the American masses, so immigration reform must be conflated w/ swarthy Islam & TERROR!! (Entire item sic, by the way.)
Tragically and with full malice aforethought, the beauty, simplicity and essential to thought subject of Logic is no longer taught in the US Public school system. As a note, little else that matters is now taught either. It was taught when I attended school. For the purposes of this column, I will deal with two forms of logic, as defined by the current 0n-line Merriam-Webster Dictionary: “a particular mode of reasoning viewed as valid or faulty” and “interrelation or sequence of facts or events when seen as inevitable or predictable.” I hope that these will assist those people who still cannot—according to their own words seem to fathom why Barack Hussein Obama does what he does and says what he says. Note: Too many of these (many high profile) and, ostensibly, Conservative individuals seem to be extremely well-educated but–due to their statements of incredulity over Obama’s actions or lack thereof–are quite apparently lacking the power of even the most basic practice of logical reasoning. That leaves us with Occam’s Razor or “the solution amongst competing hypotheses with the fewest assumptions [the one that possesses the most facts] should be selected.” Obama is destroying the USA and replacing its legal citizens with Muslims and other illegals, in order to create a new country of his making.. Logic requires rational reasoned thought…not emotion and false premises. Thus…I shall attempt to explain it to them for yet one more time. The rest of you—Conservatives specifically–understand perfectly well what’s going on.

Obama Syndicate: Christians are responsible for Islamic Violence and their own deaths!

Although they haven’t said it–outright–yet, the Obama syndicate members seem poised to soon say that Christians are actually responsible for their own beheadings and burning of the adults and children..many of them infants. Obama recently said that Christians have done horrible things, too. But—and it’s a big one—he had to go back to the over-a-thousand-years-ago Crusades to make his case. The Crusades were in effect because barbaric and enslaving Islam had taken over Spain and other regions in Europe. In a nutshell, Islam hordes conquered and took Christendom lands, enslaved the people and stole their Holy sites. The Christians fought Islam to get them back. Christianity won. In Obama’s book “Audacity of Hope.” he (or possibly Bill Ayers) writes “…I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Due to its atrocities against humanity, the political winds of the world currently seem to be against Islam…yet, Obama seems bent upon backing them all of the way.. In fact, recently, Obama held two “private” meetings with Muslim Brotherhood members. Please remember that the Brotherhood is the parent of most of the terrorist groups currently on our planet. A handful–hundreds of example are available–of indicators that Obama stands with and actually fully supports “radical” Islam are as follow:
1. Obama still refuses to use the word Islam when speaking about Islamic terrorists
2. Obama has had “secret” meetings (only recently disclosed) at the White House with the Muslim Brotherhood members in the last month
3. Obama is working with radical Islamic ICNA in its just concluded 3-day “summit” on terrorism
4. The Center for Immigration Studies advised that Obama imported 300,000 Muslims into the USA in 2013 and at least 70,000 Muslims in 2014
5. In 2015, Obama ordered the US State Department to overload the immigration system in order to bring thousands of Jihadis into the USA as well as tens of thousands of more Muslims. One way or the other, Obama is determined to turn what was once the USA into an Islamic country
6. Every time ISIS or another Islamic terrorist group commits another beheading, live human burning, disembowelment of organs for sale (this is one of the new practices), Obama makes excuses for them. At a press conference 19 February 2015, Obama said that the terrorists “may have legitimate grievances.” WHAT?
Everything Obama and the Islamo-Nazi new world order is now doing is designed to implement the “Final Solution” for the USA…that of the North American Caliphate which Obama plans to head. President Ronald Reagan’s “America a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere” will be destroyed and extinguished at last. As it is, the flicker of my home country is very dim now, indeed. As I’ve written before, my ancestral family members built the United States of America from the ground up and I have been witnessing its dismantling. Although I view Barack Hussein Obama as a loathsome creature, even more offensive are those who refused to lift a hand to stop him and those who affected the pretense of being of, for and by the people but, who willingly betrayed their fellow humans for the promise of power in this planned New Dark World and a few pieces of silver. And, to them, I say whether you choose to believe it or not truth is truth and our Creator God is watching. Even so, Lord, come soon…

“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand”–Daniel 12: 10

1,000 words worth:
Don't worry you old bat, your Lord will be coming soon.

Do your own research, but "Obama is destroying the USA and replacing its legal citizens with Muslims and other illegals, in order to create a new country of his making.." certainly falls in the "no one is who they seem, they've all been replaced by robots" category of troubles under the hair-helmet.

One Way Gang Sign!

Am I the only one left who remembers this Jesus junk,
Enthusiastic 'Jesus marchers' gathered in Wellington in March 1972. Several of them are holding up one finger to signify their belief that Jesus is the 'one way' to God. The marches were held all around New Zealand during 1972, partly in protest against perceived sexual permissiveness in society.
or did I just miss all the references thereto following this widely-circulated load:

Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign

By F. W. Burleigh
Is President Obama a Muslim? A lot has been written about this, but if photographs speak louder than words, then a photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light.

It shows Barack Hussein Obama flashing the one-finger affirmation of Islamic faith to dozens of African delegates.
Barack Hussein Obama flashes the Muslim shahada to delegates
of the US-African Leaders Conference in Washington DC in August 2014.
No, not the only one who remembers.
There is nothing in Obama’s head that is American. He is an antithetical American, a polar opposite of its values that he is routinely undermining. He is an unabashed member of the transtribal supertribe that Muhammad created 1,400 years ago; he is of the umma, not of America. His finger in the air at the African Leaders’ Conference is unambiguous evidence.

And it is evidence that you have been had America. God, have you ever been had.
See? Rudy Giuliani & Piyush "Bobby" Jindal were right! Also Dinesh D'Souza & Newt Gingrich. And half the loud-mouthed drunken losers on barstools across This Great Nation Of OURS!™

After Things Fall Apart

Secret Sovereign Citizen signal?
Please secede, & before you die, you deluded old wretch. Take Junior & his piece w/ you, too.
Former Republican presidential candidate and congressman Ron Paul says secession is happening and it’s “good news.” Paul later predicted the states would stop listening to federal laws.

“I would like to start off by talking about the subject and the subject is secession and, uh, nullification, the breaking up of government, and the good news is it’s gonna happen. It’s happening,” Paul, the father of potential Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, told a gathering at the libertarian Mises Institute in late January. The event Paul was speaking at was titled “Breaking Away: The Case for Secession.”

Paul said secession would not be legislated by Congress, but would be de facto, predicting “when conditions break down…there’s gonna be an alternative.”

“And it’s not gonna be because there will be enough people in the U.S. Congress to legislate it. It won’t happen. It will be de facto. You know, you’ll have a gold standard when the paper standard fails, and we’re getting awfully close to that. And people will have to resort to taking care of themselves. So when conditions break down, you know, there’s gonna be an alternative. And I think that’s what we’re witnessing.
Secede & nullify, we'll be getting refreshments from the snack bar to consume during the schadenfreude fest of gullible cretins "resorting to taking care of themselves" in their sod huts on the prairie.

Wouldn't you love to know just how much gold is in the Pauls' proverbial portfolios? Assuming they have any investments at all, & don't just live on donations, PACs, fan clubs, wealthy widows & the like, televangelist-style. Be pretty damn funny if all their ill-gotten but unspent grift was in something safe like United Snakes Treasury Bills.

Update: Madison, Wis., police say firearm accidentally misfired at blood bank; 1 person was hit in foot - @nbc15_madison
Friday, February 20, 2015

MADISON, Wis. -- Madison College is on lock down as police investigate reports of a shooting in the east side of Madison.

The call was on Anderson St. at the Interstate Blood and Plasma.

A witness tells us someone was in the bathroom at Interstate Blood & Plasma when a gun went off and went through the wall and hit a worker in the foot. The witness says it appeared to be an accidental misfire, but the person with the gun took off running.

NBC 15 News has crews at the scene and will update the story as we get more information.

UPDATE: MPD says shooting was accidental discharge

"Accidental discharge". Hee hee hee.

(Grammar Nazi asks: "Accidentally misfired"; double negative, or merely redundant?)

The Enemy's Within! (Or, Why Should Fascists Have All The Fun?)

Nothing to see here, I'm merely an un-armed lefty anarcho-pacifist filled w/ love for his fellow humanoids; look at the drooling racist ignoramuses over there! They're dangerous, I'm a fucking pussycat!
Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to -- and in some cases greater than -- the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.

The Homeland Security report, produced in coordination with the FBI, counts 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.
Typical reaction:

Obama Administration Finally Finds ‘Terrorists’ It Can Hate — You

If this is the best the useless Department of Homeland Security can come up with, we're in even more trouble than we know
Nice. An admission that they are all radical & reactionary extremists. And that hating dirty foreign Islamo-terrorists is all that matters, not dealing w/ actual threats, to wit:
The government says these are extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances such as a traffic stop or being required to obey a court order.
At last we see how Obama has been infringing on America's personal freedoms for six yrs. now: Traffic stops!
OFF THE PIGS!! Right, PJ Tatler?

Pee Fucking Ess.

Enough Already!

Big change in plans (which were to sit on my ass & threaten people via the iNternet all day): I'm going to SyriaNew York City to join ISIS/ISIL & kill ChristiansRudy Giuliani, because he wasn't raised up right like the rest of us!
Quite the judge of character, isn't he?
Ask Regina Peruggi, the second cousin he grew up with and married, who was "offended" when Rudy later engineered an annulment from the priest who was his best man on the grounds, strangely enough, that she was his cousin. Or ask Donna Hanover, the mother of his two children, who found out he wanted a separation when he left Gracie Mansion one morning and announced it at a televised press conference.

Or ask Judi Nathan, his third wife, whom he started dating while still married to Hanover and New York mayor. In two SUVs, he and an entourage of six or seven cops traveled 11 times to Judi's Hamptons getaway at a taxpayer cost of $3,000 a trip. That's love.

Rudy knows so much about love that he declared the other day that President Obama "doesn't love you" and "doesn't love me" at a private party of GOP fat cats.

The onetime presidential candidate also revealed at the party that Obama "doesn't love America," an echo of a speech he'd delivered to delirious cheers in Arizona a week earlier when he declared: "I would go anywhere, any place, anytime, and I wouldn't give a damn what the President of the United States said, to defend my country. That's a patriot. That's a man who loves his people. That's a man who fights for his people. Unlike our President."

Rudy may have forgotten the half-dozen deferments he won ducking the Vietnam War, even getting the federal judge he was clerking for to write a letter creating a special exemption for him. And remember Bernie Kerik? He's the Giuliani police commissioner, business partner and sidekick whose nomination as homeland security secretary narrowly preceded indictments. He then did his national service in prison.
No hypocrites shall live! Get Kerik too!

Also: Total scam artist/filthy whore. Die you fucking pig!!

Either way, extra-Kool Kat Robert Williams is showing in Los Angeles for the first time in 10 yrs. Under the auspices of the city, yet, at w/in-walking-distance Barnsdall Park, which we hope won't be over-run this wknd. Text & more text:
The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Juxtapoz magazine are pleased to present new works by Robert Williams in SLANG Aesthetics! in conjunction with 20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz, a group exhibition by guest curators Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace Gallery and Gary Pressman of Copro Gallery. Both exhibitions will be on view at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery from February 22nd to April 19th, 2015. These two exhibitions commemorate the 20th anniversary of Juxtapoz magazine, founded by Williams in 1994, and its vast influence on several generations of artists.
Here be the best representations of the actual shizz, w/ explanations for Philistines.

And Now, The Rest Of The
"Law-Abiding Gun Owner" Story ...

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Police arrested a man Thursday morning in connection with an apparent road rage shooting that killed a mother last week.

According to investigators, 44-year-old Tammy Meyers was teaching her 15-year-old daughter how to drive in the parking lot of a school near their house Feb. 12. As the pair was headed home, with Meyers behind the wheel, they encountered an irate driver, who forced their vehicle to stop and then jumped out and shouted at them.

Police said Meyers sped away and went home. She then told her 22-year-old son to grab his gun and come with her to find the angry driver. The pair eventually found the car believed to be involved, but later lost it. When Meyers arrived back to her home, a gray- or silver-colored car pulled down the street and someone inside fired several shots at Meyers and her son, who were exiting their vehicle. Meyers' son returned fire.

Meyers was shot in the head, and left critically injured. She died at an area hospital two days later.


On Thursday morning, police said they surrounded a home near Alta Drive and Cimmaron Road in western Las Vegas and arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the shooting. His identity was not immediately released.

The home where the arrest happened is about a block north of Meyers' home.

1,000 Ft.? Really?

BLIMP FACTS: FLIGHT
Most flights are at or near 1,000 to 1,500 feet. Goodyear prefers to keep the airship at this altitude so that people can see it more easily.
