Back To Cuba For You!

UPDATE 0030 the next day: Don't waste your time here, waste it at Rumproast. (We really have to stop sleeping until 1600 if we expect to keep up.)

Via digby of Hullabaloowho types:
I guess no matter how much I observe the right wing I will never fully hear the dog-whistles. All my life I heard the phrase "send 'em back to Africa." But it took me until today to see how the "Kenyan" obsession is a direct echo of that ancient American racist war cry.
Inspired by Cuban-Canadian con man Rafael Crud, father of Cuban-Canadian Sen. Ted Crud of Texas. The senior Crud called for the President of these United Snakes (A nation for which the old fuck claims he would give his life, blood & any other platitudes he could find; just no respect for the twice duly-elected Pres. thereof. We don't respect the consensus-seeking coward/tool of the Nat'l. Security Structure either, but we aren't wandering around publically pretending to respect this nation or much of anything else.) to be sent back to Chicago & Kenya. (Several mins. after the start of the video digby mercifully shortened.)

The stench of theo-fascism is strongunbearable w/ these two.
"The Treadmill and the PoorImmigration Laws are in full vigour, then? Are there no prisons? And the Union workhousesI.C.E. Detention Centers," demanded ScroogeM.B. "Are they still in operation?"
(Also: Niall Ferguson & alia.)

Send them the hell back where they came. They'll fit right back in.
From the video above. Amazing how it all ties together, innit?


What in the gawd-damned hell is wrong w/ you people? We didn't need any more reasons to hate America w/ all our black little heart, but the American sheep gave us one:
According to a survey of social media users’ confectionery preferences, people love Skittles more than any other candy. People also overwhelmingly hate candy corn, though Snickers was the most maligned candy of the bunch.
You may have heard the expression (if you're reading this — or if you are an American — you are almost certain to have heard it) "all your taste is in your mouth." So what in hell do you do w/ an entire nation that doesn't even have taste in their fat yapping pieholes?

If he had any teef left your editor would be scarfing candy corn (Love it for the texture if nothing else, losers!!) as if there were no tomorrow. (NB: Tomorrow not guaranteed to happen. Act accordingly.)

And Snickers®? Snickers®, our favorite year-round confectionary treat? Most maligned? How many ways can we say fuck you, Skittle®-chomping cretins? Bite into a fucking lemon, sour bastards.

Obligatory musical number.

C'est Chic

Are we exploiting or abusing strangers? Too fucking bad, innit? No one told them to leave the house dressed like that.

Only In America

Two more reasons to hate America. No, four.

The two (Yes, it took two.) buffoons who typed this lame something or other explaining the recent Republican shutdown fiasco. Ponnuru & Lowry sat down & "thought" for a while before reaching the radical conclusion that the reactionary elements simply didn't have the votes to do anything*. (No shit?)

And these two examples of where else-ism:
The anti-Obamacare passion we saw in the defunding fight, too, is welcome even if it needs to be better applied. That passion is, indeed, one of the wonders of American politics. Where else would an entitlement promising a kind of free lunch engender such strenuous populist opposition? For that matter, where else would a Tea Party be possible?
The answers:

There is nowhere else on this planet populated w/ so many sheep who are so gullible (& so racist that their concern that non-white others may get affordable care seems to trump any concern for their own well-being). Only in these United Snakes do citizens want to cut off their noses not only to spite their own faces, but to spite others. And not that damn exceptional & special: Children have refused what's best for them throughout human history.

Germany in the late 1920s.
*They make the big wingnut welfare money because their stark & honest reasoning combined w/ their mad math skillz enabled them (sometime after the facts) to determine that the votes for whatever in hell Ted Cruz et al. were trying to do were not there. So the two of them are smarter than Ted Cruz. Damned again w/ faint praise!

Give Up Already

Sphere, star, whatever ... all of it done. Done, & then done & re-done again & again. Nothing can ever be new ... From 1952:

The Saddest Place In The World?

A White (W/ upper case "W"!) losers-too-dense-to-recognize-their-privilege get-together where this sort of thing may be overheard:
In the lobby outside of the Polaris room, young men debated whether Ayn Rand’s message of individualism served the white race or fragmented it.

During a coffee break, a discussion about whether whites of different ancestry could ever live together in an ethno-state erupted from one of the tables.
Elaborate performance art? We ask because this is beyond mockery. What could possibly top that?
But really the conference was open to any number of overlapping topics that might attract disaffected white youngsters. Jack Donovan, an anti-feminist writer and “advocate for the resurgence of tribalism and manly virtue,” served up his shtick.
His shtick: Poetry, or a run-on sentence?
Donovan has argued that feminists are trying to create “gender-neutral utopias” that will make men into “doughy bonobos and chunky Chaz Bonos playing out their endless manic-depressive melodramas in a big bean-flicking circle of sterility, sickness and desperation.”
Whichever one, we are (easily) amused.

Rain Delay/Substitute

When a promised 30% chance of rain manifested as zero precip. in the actual world, we had to make do.Whoa. Had not seen this before, because who reads YouTube?
Published on Feb 6, 2013
Basically the older Rain and Thunder video with most of the thunder removed. You may hear it faintly in the background, but for the most part it is just rain. Previous comments suggested that the thunder was either too loud or was too random.
Is them fightin' words?

Today In Shut Your Festering Gob

Don't make us go over there & shut you up, ignorant clowns.
Cuccinelli’s audience knew every beat of this. They were, generally, well-versed in talk radio and aware that a McAuliffe win would boost the people he spent his life working for—the Clintons. “Hillary Clinton? I hate her,” said April Hudson, a libertarian-minded Cuccinelli supporter. “I think she’s a murderer. I think she should be in jail. She disgusts me. Everything she did in Benghazi, it disgusts me. She should be disqualified from running for president.”
Equally, some people who don't know a damn thing about anything should be disqualified from flapping their gums. Could Hudson provide any facts at all about what was done (or not done) in mythical Benghazi that so disgusted her? No, just received wisdom from the radio.
“Virginia’s a real plum for the Clintons,” said Margaret Hobble, a Cuccinelli supporter from Winchester, Va. “Hillary and Obama worked under the same man, Saul Alinsky.”
Are there two people not in a home for the feeble-minded more completely wrong, or more deserving of ball-gags?

Big Gulp® Politics

First former half-term ex-Alaska Gov. Palin, now two more losers, toupéed turkey & funny-talking weirdo Kentucky Senator Rand Paul & sodomite-slapping Virginia A.G./gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, have taken up the cause of 7-Eleven® against Nanny Bloomberg. (Wouldn't it be wonderfully ironic if the above-mentioned quartet of Republicans were to die painfully in a fiery car wreck in a 7-Eleven® parking lot? PROTIP: Brake lines are easy to cut. A pocket knife should do it, & there probably aren't goons & thugs protecting their cars while they're giving their speeches full of lies. Get to work, Virginians!)
Cuccinelli’s Fairfax rally was meant for the other voters, the ones being outnumbered. Shortly before 3 p.m., they streamed in, signed up for get-out-the-vote operations, and picked up Cuccinelli or “I Am the NRA” signs being passed out by volunteers. When Cuccinelli arrived, it was side by side with Paul, the two of them hoisting 64-ounce Double Big Gulps.

“I heard Mike Bloomberg wanted to buy the governor’s office down here,” Paul explained, “and I figured after he took my Big Gulp, he’d come after my guns.”
Sick/tired/&c. of the same old same old from the spawn of Ron. We do have a suggestion or two about what the Senator can do w/ his guns & his lame rug, all of which involve a hospital/mortuary visit/stay. Listen to this crap & then tell us you disagree, pacifist weaklings.Not to ignore yesterday's reasons to do something, for gawd's sake! MAKE IT STOP!!(What's the real deal here? Lazy staffers/speechwriters? "Gattaca*? Oh, great. More governing by Hollywood. Aren't we supposed to hate "liberal Hollywood?" Whatever. Copy & paste something from IMDb or Wikipedia. Senator Hairpiece won't know the diff.")

Look, we're only trying to drag America's political discourse from an elementary school to a junior highmiddle school level. The United Snakes being a nation that can't make an omelette unless it breaks all the eggs in the kitchen & then goes to the barnyard & kills a hen or two to show who's boss, don't any of you Yankee scum dare blame us for having to threaten violence & murder for our message of peace & shut the fuck up to be heard.

The Coast Is The Most

The Left Coast, first in culture, fads & trends, & the most in bullshit.
(All the same, really.)
On Monday afternoon in San Francisco, the leaders of California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia signaled they would not wait for the United States Congress or the Canadian Parliament to act to seriously address climate change. California Governor Jerry Brown, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and (via teleconference) British Columbia’s Premier Christy Clark signed the Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy.
The agreement is not legally binding and appropriates no money. The plan says it “is intended to spur finding new, smart ways for our governments, agencies and staff to work together,” by doing things like adding value and efficiency to climate initiatives through collaboration, while reducing “overlap and duplication of effort.” So what does it do?
Oh, what a surprise, it doesn't do thing one; as ever, all talk, no action.

And why didn't these Anglophones bring Baja California ("The Snow-Free B.C.") in on the non-action?

Final word:
53 million people living in what would be the world’s fifth-largest economy will now be participating in a “far-reaching strategic alignment to combat climate change and promote clean energy.”
Stay. Off. Our. LawnCoast.

Tastes Great, Or Less Filling?

There's no question we despise the un-adult as much if not more than the next ageing humanoid wretch (Get off our everything, you little bastards!!) but this sort of thing
About 500 American children and teenagers die in hospitals every year after sustaining gunshot wounds — a rate that climbed by nearly 60 percent in a decade, according to the first-ever accounting of such fatalities, released Sunday.

In addition, an estimated 7,500 kids are hospitalized annually after being wounded by gunfire, a figure that spiked by more than 80 percent from 1997 to 2009, according to Boston doctors presenting their findings at a conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics, held in Orlando, Fla.

Eight of every 10 firearm wounds were inflicted by handguns, according to hospital records reviewed by the doctors. They say the national conversation about guns should shift toward the danger posed by smaller weapons, not the recent fights over limiting the availability of military-style, semi-automatic rifles.

“Handguns account for the majority of childhood gunshot wounds and this number appears to be increasing over the last decade,” said Dr. Arin L. Madenci, a surgical resident at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and one of the study’s two authors. “Furthermore, states with higher percentages of household firearm ownership also tended to have higher proportions of childhood gunshot wounds, especially those occurring in the home.”

Among homes with children, rates of gun possession ranged from 10 percent in New Jersey, for instance, to 62 percent in Montana, the researchers found.
might not be the best way to deal w/ (most) young people.Sick murdering nation.

After 55+ (remembered) yrs. of hating we're sick & tired. It is an enigma & a mystery why America's sheep won't stop being so hateful & hate-worthy, but they won't, so we go on as well.

Annals Of Satire

Satire, parody, lampoon, snarkery, whatever you call it, it's almost impossible in today's world. Example: A few mins. ago we left this at Panic in Funland:
Thank goodness for death panels. Now perfectly good livers won't be wasted on old people who only use them for a yr.
W/in five mins. we saw this at No More Mister Nice Blog:
Yeah, it's nutpicking, but I thought I'd share this response from a Free Republic commenter to the death of Lou Reed:
The ObamaCare Death Panels in New York wouldn’t give him a liver transplant so he got it done in Ohio instead. Typical liberal hypocrisy. Death Panels for thee but not for me.
Typical crypto-fascist stupidity, foolishness & ignorance. Bullshit for me but not for thee.

I Think Lou Reed Is A Creep II

But now he's dead, it doesn't matter.

Listened to this just yesterday or Friday.Can't really apply causation here, but wouldn't it be neat if our watching a video/listening to a tune resulted in the almost immediate death of someone involved in the video?

As the editorial staff had no acquaintance w/ Mr. Reed (Legal name: Lewis Allen Rabinowitz.) we will relinquish the microphone to those who did:
K: Do you still think Lou Reed is a creep?
A(dny Shernoff): Well, I'm a fan of Lou Reed's. I guess he IS a creep, yeah.
And here's what Lou thought of you, fans & music consumers:Betcha can't listen all the way through. (Not that there's any reason to. Points to him for getting RCA to put it out, 'though.)

Weird Dave left this earlier (w/o context):Reed sure boxed himself in. 40+ yrs. of output & all we really care about are two evocative junk numbers from his first disc. Could have been remembered by this one, so ...We've used this title before. Other mention.

California Leads The Way

As always, The Golden State ("Where the streets are ... paved.") is doing its best to squash the fascist insectmarginalize enemies of the people (Republican division) before final elimination (w/ votes, at the ballot box. Sure ...).

Credit where due: The California Republican Party's assistance has been invaluable.

An R consultant, Jeff Miller:
“Over the last two decades, California’s working class has slowly migrated out of the state and Latino and women voters are completely disenfranchised [sic] with the Republican Party. There are only a few pockets of conservative voters left in the state and they are only able to help carry the day for Republicans in ultra-low turnout elections on issues where campaign spending is at parity or to the Republican advantage, and where the Democratic and union grass-roots apparatus is not activated,” Miller’s memo said.

“There is no good way to sugarcoat this. ... The Republican label is anathema to younger voters, women and Latinos -- growing voter blocs with real significance to future elections.”
Perhaps most interesting is Miller's claim the working class has migrated; somehow, actual work has continued in the state, much of it performed (As if they were acting?) by Latinos. Gee, if Republicans were such a great fit w/ the working class one might think working class Latinos would have migrated to the Republican Party. Why not, then? The hate? (No idea if/why his working class, no matter the ethnicity, would be Republicans, but whatever.)

Miller recently left the state, after two initiatives in which he was involved were defeated last November. (Every last one of these Republican cocksuckers is a sore loser. Every damn one.) Now he's in Texas helping imbecile pseudo-secessionist imbecile/Gov. Rick Perry lure businesses from California w/ promises of fewer regulations, &c. You know, wage-slavery. Fuck him in every orifice w/ an enchilada wrapped w/ pickle sauce.

Where Is The Magic?

Still fucking waiting for elves who work while we sleep to come up w/ something to appear in this space. Shoes, web logs, what difference does it make, just get to work you pointy-eared little freaks!!

Annals Of Gun Safety

Need further proof of the non-existence of the supernatural?
The one-time Alaska half-Gov.'s elbow is still attached.
Photo courtesy of the bear murderer's Facebook page.
On any scale of probability it's likelier that Bar were Kilt by the clown typing this crap than by that woman.

Cry Me A River (Then Go Drown In It)

Ooo-wee! Having now read all the hot parts, be advised the Democracy Corps focus group recap is a comedy/schadenfreude gold mine. It's the original Festival of Butthurt, & the main event is the non-stop Recitation of Resentment.
They are also very conscious that they are viewed as rednecks by the liberal elite. Take, for example, this exchange between Evangelical women in Colorado Springs:
It becomes hard, because [if you’re conservative] you’re not allowed to have your opinion, but everybody else is.

You have to agree with another opinion. That's very annoying.

[Does anyone else feel that way? That you're allowed to have certain opinions, but not others?]

Yes. (All around)

[Where does that pressure come from?]

It's from the people who say that we're supposed to be tolerant.

[Who are they?]

The people who are intolerant. It's the left, for the most part ... I just recently had a debate on Facebook with a nephew of mine. And he accused me of so much stuff out of one comment … And it was just – He was just clueless on where I stood.
They realize & admit they're a minority, yet are surprised when their "ideas" offend a few parts of the dominant culture. Their gawd has forsaken them. Again. (It's been thousands of yrs., why do they expect otherwise? Faith? Heh indeed.)

These sore losers cannot die soon enough for this impartial reporter. (Literally; we'd like to see them drop like flies before it's our turn to go.)

Pants, Jerry Patterson's,
Pooping & Pissing Thereof

W/ .22 Magnum in boot, "tongue in cheek," & head in aging pasty-white keister, Texas scaredy-cat & Republican Lt. Gov. hopeful Jerry Patterson recently called for expelling the four wealthiest (probably, you could look it up) states in these United Snakes from these United Snakes.

Why? Need we again head south to give the fans of slavery another beating? They do seem to have forgotten all previously administered beatings, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights & Voting Rights Acts.

The Ledeen Doctrine (or Theory of Fascist Bullying) may apply here: Every ten yrs. or so the Federal Gov't. should make an example of a smaller tax-sponging & parasitical red state by throwing it against the Mason-Dixon Line to show the other cracker states we mean business & they'd better join the 20th century pretty damn soon (Before we're a quarter of the way through the 21st century, maybe?) as the majority of Americans are getting very, very tired of waiting for the (semi-)former Confederate states to get out of the 19th century.

But enough happy thoughts, let's go to the quotes:
On guns: He always has a .22-caliber Magnum in his boot and sometimes a .380 in his waistband. “It’s like a smoke detector: You don’t turn it on just for when you think you might get a fire.”
Is good ol' Jerry expecting the original settlers to go off the rez & raid Austin? Fantasizing he's an undercover narcotics detective? Protecting himself & his family from monsters that actually are under the bed? Maybe he's afraid the ghosts of Gen. Santa Anna or Charles Whitman are on their way back. Cut to the chase: What's wrong w/ him?
On the Endangered Species Act: It protects “critters that probably ought to die anyway. I mean, the blind salamander? How long are we gonna let that little bugger last?”
What can he be overcompensating for, w/ the guns & the big talk? Jerry feels threatened by a blind amphibian. (How sad/lame is that? Childhood trauma?) But he showed the little bastard, didn't he? "You oughter die, critter!" ("Critter" not, we suspect, used ironically at all. Unless he's another Yankee phony dumbing it down to pass among the rubes.)
As a member of the state Senate, Patterson was author of the concealed handgun law in 1995. And he’s been a bullish proponent of 2nd Amendment rights, including the right to carry guns almost anywhere – including the Capitol in Austin. When a colleague suggested the best way to keep someone from firing a gun inside the Capitol is to ban weapons from the building, Patterson had a different idea: “I don’t know about you, but I’m going to return fire.”
"I’m going to return fire?" Boy Howdy we'd like to see that. A state land commissioner so afraid of something/anything that he carries one or two guns is most likely to soil his diapers & dive under the furniture if a paper bag or balloon is popped in his vicinity. (Or "return fire" may only be a euphemism for releasing his sphincter.) And while the stench of wet & poopy Patterson pants would probably be intolerable (you can imagine his real American diet) the image of J.P. rolling on the floor in agony because he's literally just shot himself in the foot would be, as they say on television, priceless.
As for the lieutenant governor’s race, he faces Dewhurst, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples and Houston radio show host Sen. Dan Patrick. The candidates are all appealing to tea party voters in the GOP as the most conservative candidate vying for the job. As for booting California, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut out of the union, Patterson joked it was “a little tongue in cheek.” But hey, he told the AP why not? “Just think about how different our country would be if New York and California weren’t the tail wagging the dog. And those other states? It’s not America.”
Damn right a tail (w/ a population of about 68 million, well over twice the population of Texas) is wagging the dog. The concept of democracy seems to have sailed right over the Land Commish's head, but his grasp of wing-nut alternate universe-string theory mathematics is unquestionable. Follow the logic in this 11-dimensional chess: The loser Confederate states (minus Florida, just because) total 81 million. Stipulating Kentucky, Idaho, Montana, the Dakotas, Alaska & Wyoming as hick-infested solid-red states the total hick-state population hits 101 million. Under a third in a nation of 310+ million. Got that*? What's "not America" now?

Shorter the above: Another Texas village is missing its idiot.
*"Stats" from 2012 estimates here; liberally rounded, mostly up, so acurate to a million or so in either direction.

Bonus Thrilling Statistical Factoid: 2/5 of the states in our union each have less than 1% of the national population. And two U.S. Senators each.

Figure This One Out

From the focus group fest mentioned below somewhere (p. 13):
[Our rights] are slowly being taken away…like health care. (Tea Party woman, Roanoke)

Know Your Enemy

"Smakehead" Carville (or someone w/ ability who works for him) talked to the drooling idjits who compose (even as it decomposes, fingers crossed) the Grand Old Party & found what scares them, if not exactly why.

Frightening thing number one is B. Hussein Obama. (Chapter 2, pp. 6-10.) (Would this iNternet enterprise receive the attention for which it begs daily w/ its sad empty threats & foaming at the mouth were the editorial staff of the African-American persuasion? Considering the common clay's reaction to Obama doing little more than continuing the policies of the Junior Bush Administration, maybe if we had a touch of the tarbrush we'd cause more pearl-clutching fainting & outrage & get more hits. Not to be scared of us is blatant racism, white folks!)

Even those identified as "moderate" are out of their fucking gourds.
[M]oderate men in Colorado Springs raise as many questions as the other Republicans about who Obama really is:

Only cares about self-promotion, not the AMERICAN people.

Hopefully, he doesn’t change the Constitution so he can try to get elected again.

Feels government can solve any problem.

He is masonic Devil Illuminati, Lier can’t stand Him


Lies and scandals

Someone who defines himself as "moderate" is happy to write: "He is masonic Devil Illuminati, Lier can’t stand Him". Self-defined moderate. What does that tell us?

Dumb Clouds Stay Away
& Don't Come Back No More

It's so lonely, honey, in the State of Maine.
Seems pleasant enough.
El gordo won't even put in the effort to fabricate his own statistic, but goes w/ Romney's losing lie from last yr.'s loss:
Enough already. We're fed the hell up w/ peopleloud-mouthed assholes so awful that were we to publish what we'd like done w/ them we'd be subject to arrest if anyone who gave a flying fuck ever read this crap. ([stomping out] They'll be sorry when they find this after I'm dead! You'll see!!)

Clichéd, loud-mouthed Horatio Alger assholes:
LePage was born in Lewiston, Maine, the eldest son of eighteen children of Theresa (née Gagnon) and Gerard LePage, both of French-Canadian descent. He grew up speaking French in an impoverished home with an abusive father who was a mill worker. His father drank heavily and terrorized the children; and his mother was too intimidated to stop him. At age eleven, after his father beat him and broke his nose, he ran away from home and lived on the streets of Lewiston, seeking shelter wherever he could find it, including in horse stables and at a "strip joint". After spending roughly two years homeless, he began to earn a living shining shoes, washing dishes at a café and hauling boxes for a truck driver. He later worked at a rubber company, a meat-packing plant, and was a short order cook, and bartender.
Some would call that bootstrapping, or drag out other platitudes; judging from Gov. LePew's fictionalized background & current pleasant personality we'd guess it was inability to hold a job for long (A pattern that looks to continue w/ the Governorship.) until:
LePage worked for a lumber company in New Brunswick, Canada that was owned by his first wife's family from 1972–79, and later for Scott Paper in Winslow, Maine. He later founded his own business consulting firm, LePage & Kasevich Inc., which specialized in aiding floundering companies. In 1996, LePage became general manager of Marden's Surplus and Salvage, a Maine-based discount store chain.

Chronic Brain Syndrome

According to science, a major product of mammalian (at least, we guess) brain activity is "toxic waste products."
Proud of yourselves, Kentucky, Texas & Utah?

Polite Society Report

Fortunately this brave homeowner had a shotgun when this atrocity happened.
A Reno man accused of shooting a golfer who broke a window at his home with an errant ball has pleaded guilty to a felony charge.


The golfer was unable to find his ball and was doing a drop shot on the 16th hole of the LakeRidge Golf Course in September 2012 when Fleming approached and fired a single shot at him with a shotgun, prosecutors said.

The golfer was treated for minor injuries to an arm and both legs at a hospital.
Well he got just what he deserved! Some nerve, hitting someone's on-course house w/ a golf ball. We don't think a shotgun blast is retaliatory overkill. What of Mr. Lousy Shot's property rights?

Seriously though, attempted murderer
Fleming, 53, has expressed remorse and shock over his reaction to the broken window, Neahusan said, adding he apparently has no felony criminal record.

“I’m not sure what was going on, but from what I’ve read and heard, it definitely sounds out of character,” the prosecutor said.

In return for Fleming’s guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to drop an assault with a deadly weapon charge and to go along with the Division of Parole and Probation’s recommended sentence for him.
Sadly, not real news: Another law-abiding citizen (Law-abiding = Hasn't been caught yet.) w/ access to a weapon has a fit for no discernible reason & uses the weapon for no discernible reason. Look at this fuck:
Jeff Fleming/Washoe County Sheriff's Office
Do we need a battery of psychiatric tests to tell us this vicious would-be mad-dog killer/law-abiding citizen probably shouldn't have a drivers license, let alone guns or sharp objects?

Wake Up Your Glands!

We'll Try Harder This Wk., Honest

Mendokusai applies to more than sex. Here in the United Snakes, no one can be bovvered to kill any more. Figuratively. Nonetheless, from the statistics grab bag, murder is down in the City of Night:
"If you would have [sic] told me 20 years ago that we would go nine days without a homicide, I would have never believed it," Cmdr. Andy Smith said Friday.
At least he's not a sucker.
The most recent homicide in the city occurred Oct. 8 and was the 217th this year. Homicides are down nearly 9% from the same period in 2012, a decrease of 21.
New York City is also in on the act.
Recently, New York City went nearly eight days without a homicide. The stretch was broken when an 18-year-old was killed Oct. 14, local media reported.

But it was the second time in 2013 that New York had seen such a stretch. In January, the city went nine days without a homicide.

On Thursday, Det. Kelle Baitx, who has investigated homicides with LAPD's Newton Division for more than two decades, said he was surprised to hear about the city's homicide-free stretch.

"It's slow here," he said, "It's slow everywhere now."

Last year, the division saw a record low 16 homicides, a stark contrast from the 1990s, he said, when the division would handle more than 100 killings a year.
Is this then proof that Calif. (notorious for its lack of gun regulation) is safer because almost every citizen is both armed & ready to kill at a moment's notice, whether to defend their honor or their place in line at the supermarket? Sure, why the hell not? Just explain why, in gun-grabbing New York, all the dead bodies aren't stacked in the streets like cordwoodpiled up in mounds, Lou Reed-style.

Contemptuous as we are of homo sap, we wouldn't be very surprised if the stats add to less murder only because people were aiming badly, or people were beaten w/in an inch of their lives & remain in grave condition at County-U.S.C. Because no one is going to tell us there were no assaults or batteries for any number of days.

Word Of The DayCurrent Geological Epoch

From that greatly cheering Guardian article below, a fun new word: MENDOKUSAI.
Mendokusai translates loosely as "Too troublesome" or "I can't be bothered". It's the word I hear both sexes use most often when they talk about their relationship phobia. Romantic commitment seems to represent burden and drudgery, from the exorbitant costs of buying property in Japan to the uncertain expectations of a spouse and in-laws. And the centuries-old belief that the purpose of marriage is to produce children endures. Japan's Institute of Population and Social Security reports an astonishing 90% of young women believe that staying single is "preferable to what theyimagine marriage to be like".
So. "I can't be arsed" (And really, who can?) in Japanese. Or, as we put it around here:
UPDATE (1930PDT 20 October 2013): In commentsthe comment, Mr. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© sees what went right by us:

No Sex Please, We're Nipponese

"Good news for once? I'm going (Too late!) nuts worrying over every single little thing, what horror may I remove from the Platter of Troubles?" asks the concerned viewer.

Well, you can stop worrying about another Pearl Harbor, or the Japanese dominating the future: The land of tentacle porn is on a higher spiritual plane, & they no longer want to fuck; they probably won't be much for fighting. (Unless it's all sublimation & their sexual energy is again being turned to war or absolute economic hegemony.)
Although there has long been a pragmatic separation of love and sex in Japan – a country mostly free of religious morals – sex fares no better. A survey earlier this year by the Japan Family Planning Association (JFPA) found that 45% of women aged 16-24 "were not interested in or despised sexual contact". More than a quarter of men felt the same way.
Don't be dissauded, it runs until (5:15). Then (Why?) it repeats.
Official alarmism doesn't help. Fewer babies were born here in 2012 than any year on record. (This was also the year, as the number of elderly people shoots up, that adult incontinence pants outsold baby nappies in Japan for the first time.) Kunio Kitamura, head of the JFPA, claims the demographic crisis is so serious that Japan "might eventually perish into extinction".
Sayonara, anthill nation! Maybe that's their problem. They should go all in on the insect deal; a few queens & males for breeding & the rest can be happy sexless drones.This is the most upbeat story we've seen in some time. There may be hope for a nihilistic future, as soon as the rest of you fucking sheep wise up as the Land o' The Rising Sun has.
Japan's under-40s won't go forth and multiply out of duty, as postwar generations did. The country is undergoing major social transition after 20 years of economic stagnation. It is also battling against the effects on its already nuclear-destruction-scarred psyche of 2011's earthquake, tsunami and radioactive meltdown. There is no going back. "Both men and women say to me they don't see the point of love. They don't believe it can lead anywhere," says Aoyama. "Relationships have become too hard."

Marriage has become a minefield of unattractive choices. Japanese men have become less career-driven, and less solvent, as lifetime job security has waned. Japanese women have become more independent and ambitious. Yet conservative attitudes in the home and workplace persist. Japan's punishing corporate world makes it almost impossible for women to combine a career and family, while children are unaffordable unless both parents work. Cohabiting or unmarried parenthood is still unusual, dogged by bureaucratic disapproval.
How many times have we told you that marriage is a corrupt bourgeois institution? Did you listen? When will the other industrialized "democracies" wise the fuck up & stop depleting planetary resources w/ their ugly & stupid children?

Song Of The Wk.

Completely forgot/never heard this version; the Vincent Price impression at (5:00) is why. (Who'da guessed Vanilla Fudge would render the shortest one?)From South Africa, it's Suck:Real supergroup:Seen Steven Stills lately? Still(s) looks better than Bloomfield does today.(At least one of the above has a drum solo, & we're all for drum solos.)

Sick Of The Dead*

Michael Savage says the future is now. Or tomorrow belongs to us, something ... either way, enough wallowing in the past w/ dead Presidents/Founders: Buncha slave-holding demagogues, & shut the hell up about Ronald Reagan while you're at it, begs Savage. (Legal name? Michael Weiner.) We agree wholeheartedly. To hell w/ them & w/ ancestor worship in general.(A-hem: Pause video when finished if you don't want to hear/see the next load of garbage. But why wouldn't you?)
“Would you support a nationalist candidate, OK?” Savage said. “I will change the question from a ‘nationalist party,’ I’ll change it. Would you support a nationalist candidate running on the Republican ticket? I don’t want to hear the word ‘conservative’ anymore. It has no meaning whatsoever because I don’t want to hear any more about George Washington or people with false teeth. I don’t want to hear about the old men who created America. They’re not gods. They were just slave-holding demagogues, all of them.”

“Some of them were smart,” he continued. “Some of them were stupid. Some of them were mean. Some of them were good. Some of them had constipation. Let’s stop turning them into gods. Let’s stop turning Ronald Reagan into God.
Dead for nine yrs. Not. Coming. Back, morons.
I can’t stand it anymore. I’m sick of it. I need to live here and now. I don’t want to hear any more about men walking around with britches on and wigs. I want to talk about today, now, America. I want a nationalist candidate.”
It's hard for us to believe that the fascists & neo-feudalists spewing all over the iNternet & the A.M. radio aren't true believers, 'cause it's beyond us how anyone could consistently spew such tripe for yrs. & yrs. w/o having swallowed all of the accepted-as-gospel paranoid delusions whole, but if any of the reactionary rabble-rousers are bullshitting, The Savage Weiner seems quite likely to be totally in it for the moolah.

Especially the moolah in feuding w/ other grifters.
Savage may have been reacting to his Cumulus lead-in and long-time rival Mark Levin, who had spent a substantial amount of time on his show earlier discussing the book he co-authored with his father, Jack Levin, “George Washington: The Crossing.”
They turn on each other once they've destroyed everything else.

And sure, we know what nationalism means in this context. It means fascism's the first number in the contacts list.
*Also sick & tired of the living & the comatose; sadly, time & space are limited.

Christ, What A(n) ...

60 yrs. (& a mo.) old & we're sitting around making bad jokes & minor irritation on the iNternet. Good thing we're not given to self-examination.

Robot Sticks On Talking Points

Just past (1:20) Robo-Palin sticks & stops paying attention to the Megyn android. (Which does an excellent job of barely moving throughout the robot's playback. A human confronted w/ Palin would have been laughing & laughing, or pounding its face into the desk.)<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>We'll just figure Booger has no truck w/ scripts, so fuck them & FOXNews & its scripts as well. A lower quality substitute, wherein Sarah MkII sticks at (1:50):(4:12): "Megyn, here's the deal — the ... in ... What we're talking about right now — the ... the enemy of America's economic freedom is this fundamental transformation of America. The enemy of the enemy is my friend is any common-sense conservative friend."

Also, Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi! The Palin version? The Pres - "er, his administration ... left behind ... brave men ... to be murdered." The hell? Beyond absurd. (1:10):
[President Obama], having left behind, his administration having left behind our brave men in Benghazi to be murdered, and then of course there's Syria, where he promised to bomb Syria because in that civil war, Syria was going to bomb Syria, and then we never heard another word again about his threat to bomb in a foreign civil war
Read/listen & peacefully contemplate the many painful ways John McCain can die.

The only real winner from U.S. America's five yrs. of Palins is the State of Alaska. Two more yrs. of Governor Palin & the entire frozen wasteland, huge as it is, could have been nothing but smoking ruins & dead moose.
P.S.: Send me money so I can give two or three per cent of it to other freakin' nutcases like me, & blow the rest on more fundraising, Facebook ghostwriters, bus trips & having my eyelids tucked & rolled, don'cha know?

Sincerely, your Friend for Freedom,

Shut Up, Harvard Elitist

Study in delusion*. We've saved three mins. of your life by starting it where he starts embarrassing himself by using the Senate floor as if it were a Republican finger-pointing meeting.Not more "people rising up against" crap. Certainly not in "overwhelming numbers," because fuck all was overwhelmed. Having now seen this guy (& his even nuttier father) blathering, we can conclude he has no chance at anything Presidential; no one wants to see gravity doing its work in real time.

The people rise.

(0:30)-ish someone states "Republicans shut down the gov't.," followed by un-civility. Then a naughty word just past (1:30). Sadly, raw footage that never went beyond the CBS (See what they did there?) News site.She'd win World's Worst (Non-Rapist) ElementarySunday School Teacher hands down.

SALT LAKE CITY — A Mormon church leader says having women at home remains an essential part of society, and he cautioned against blurring feminine and masculine differences.

D. Todd Christofferson is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Quorum of the Twelve. His speech Saturday came during a two-day church conference in Salt Lake City.

Christofferson said women’s “moral force” has kept societies on the righteous track for generations.
What, would the "moral force" of the ladies interfere w/ the priesthood divvying up the proceeds from all that tithing? And all the businesses the L.D.S. Church owns & profits from?
He criticized feminist thinkers who view “homemaking with outright contempt.”
Hey, feminist thinkers, stop that contempt: Rebelling against your Gawd-given nature will only make you unhappier.
He said overlooking the differences between men and women would lead to losing the complementary gifts of the two genders that work in harmony.

Later Saturday afternoon, a feminist Mormon women’s group called Ordain Women plans to ask to be let in an all-male priesthood meeting to highlight what they perceive as gender inequality.
Keep your moral force at home behind the canned goods the Church conned you into buying; we don't want to bother business, do we ladies?For fuck's sake, what does it say about these United Snakes that the L.D.S. is "the American religion?"

P.S.: Comment from the above link:
Mormons spend a lot of time keeping records, updating records, chasing records and centralizing records, ask any ward clerk.
We believe you are all well aware of another also-hierarchical organization that spent a lot of time keeping records, updating records, chasing records and centralizing records. We need say no more.

Crazy Donkey

Political Wire claims this has something to do w/ Nevada's own beloved Sharon "Second Amendment Remedies" Angle.Oh yes, it's Sharon's iNternet grifting page. Please send her money so she can help someone else repeal "Obamacare." And don't miss the all-honkie slide show.

Zombie Scourge

Oh no: "Obamacare" is turning us all into new world order zombies, saieth the 21st century Fredric Wertham (If Wertham had called himself "Dr. Freddy.") & Prophet of The Apocalypse Dr. Manny Alvarez of FOXNews:
Is watching “The Walking Dead” seriously hurting American society?

I would argue ‘Yes.’ Hate me all you want*, or call me paranoid and misinformed, but there is one common theme that is pervasive in American pop culture today: violence.
O.K., joke's over. "Dr. Manny" can not possibly be a licensed M.D. to whom people entrust their lives; people in the medical profession are expected to have some grasp on cause & its following effects, aren't they?

(To be entirely fair, he does grasp the concept, but in the Bizarro World/mirror universe/alternate dimension/Wonderland/parallel universe way of the reactionary: 180° wrong. Backwards. Upside down.)

The American pop culture (Sekrit Code: Dr. Manny means Hollywood Liberals!) the alleged doctor invokes is a pale imitation/reflection of the grim horrors of American life, & hardly the cause of the violence that has infected this nation of killers, drones (all definitions thereof) & otherwise since the first immigrants made it across the land bridge w/o falling into the North Pacific &(probably) wiped out the mammoths, giant sloths & sabre-toothed cats. (Not to forget how efficient Euro-trash were w/ the raping, murdering, pillaging & extincting when they showed.)
Even more specifically, zombie violence. The idea of a zombie-infested world inspires fantasies of monsters possessed by an uncontrollable rage to kill, and viewers get a thrill imagining what it would be like to participate in this new world order.
Yet to Dr. MannyAlvarez this zombie violence has sprung from nowhere onto America's screens. Well, not exactly nowhere, but the root of all evil, officials (Imagined? You betcha!) who simply do not care about your personal growth. ("Personal growth?" Did someone start the second Eighties revival/nostalgia wallow w/o letting us know?)
With this country heading towards a socialized system of government, in which officials don’t want you to think or focus on what is important for your own personal growth, I’m sure they’re more than happy to let you obsess over something as stupid as zombies.

And in turn, you ultimately become the zombie.

Wake up and smell the coffee. Stop obsessing over eating brains, and focus on cultivating your own.


Give me a break. As a doctor and scientist, I know one thing for sure: When you’re dead, you’re dead. Our brains should be less focused on imaginary zombie hoards [sic] and more focused on harnessing the tools that we need in order to enhance our lives, whether it be music, education, science or the classics. Entertainment should help us soothe our brains so that we can ease our minds of some of the stress from our daily lives.
Of course, no professsionals (nor Dr. Phil) who refer to themselves w/ an honorific & a first name are to be taken seriously. Nor is a paranoid dip who suggests we cultivate our brains yet doesn't know the difference between hoards & hordes.

We were curious as to Dr. Manny's doctor/scientist credentials. He does appear to have an M.D., & he's another anti-anything & everything humane; it could lead to socialism!! Cuban. (Go back to Cuba & improve things, Galtian Übermenschen, or shut the hell up already.) Per El Wiki: "His most recent book is The Hot Latin Diet: The Fast-Track Plan to a Bombshell Body." Christ, what an asshole. Croakers really are the worst.

Paleo portion:
Experts believe the skull is one of the most important fossil finds to date, but it has proved as controversial as it is stunning. Analysis of the skull and other remains at Dmanisi suggests that scientists have been too ready to name separate species of human ancestors in Africa. Many of those species may now have to be wiped from the textbooks.
Damnit, we just knew there were too many ancestors & cousins in the fambly tree. Let's face it, one or another hominid species would have killed the others, had they existed. Tribalism. What a species.

Radical Foamer

As whiny-ass Republican titty-babies ("The media lied & lied & lied, you know how they are ... buncha mean ol' communiss ... sniffle ... waaaaah ...") stood around avoiding any of the "personal responsibility" (You may have heard of this "personal responsibility" deal; moralizing asshole reactionaries/glibertarians often invoke it upon others while miraculously managing never to see the Biblical beam in their own eyes.) for their own most recent failure by "playing the blame game" (Another concept useful to deflect responsibility; but if blaming people is such a mean & hateful game, why are they always playing it?) Rep. Labrador of Idaho (A sub-humancretinous moron whose district should be nuked from above & then salted so nothing more will grow there*, even as any surviving supporters of the Rep.'s are carted off to FEMA reëducation camps.) let this idiocy ooze from his imbecilic pie-hole:
"Instead of praising that, which is what the American people have been asking for the last 200 years, that politicians actually listen to individuals, instead of to the ruling class†, you guys have actually written about that in a derisive manner, and I think that's really sad."
We've a more than vague idea why the mean ol' media was derisive: No one (certainly not Rep. Raúl) believes for a nano-second that Republicans are interested in anything but the interests of the corporate entities ("ruling class," how quaint) who've financed them in exchange for protection from progress for the last 200+ yrs. Not even the "objective, both sides do it" Wash. press corps could swallow that.

The bolded phrase is why we want to kill & torture: First-water hypocrisy. (In a decent, truly civilized society, anyone making such a two-faced statement would have had his tongue removed from his mouth w/ hot pliers, on the spot.) Rep. Labrador is far from the sharpest tool in the droolers' drawer (Though he is quite a tool.) which may keep him from realizing what a liar he is, or he may simply be delusional. (See: Mormon, Book of.)

Whatever the proper diagnosis, people so afflicted can no longer be allowed to reproduce. And no point letting them use oxygen that rational non-hypocrites could put to better use. (Resource wars, people. If America is to survive, dead weight like Labrador cannot be allowed to drag us down. Think of the future, thin the herd!)

And how can Rep. Labrador possibly understand America? He's from an island in the Caribbean called Puerto Rico, which is no more a U.S. state than Hawai'i is!! (Really, where do they get these people?) Get out, foreign usurper!!

A Latter-Day Saint as well. Say no more, right? (Well, we could add some boiler plate about self-hating non-Anglo Mormons hoping their children will be more "whitesome & delightsome" then they are, as promised, but why be obvious?)
The very definition of pin-dick: Then State Representative
Labrador in 2008. Talk about a militarized society.
Is arming idiots like him really the way to go?
In conclusion, should Rep, Labrador ever meet this reporter in person, he is a dead man, and he can take that to the same bank where he keeps his corporate bribe money. (We understand there is a way, somewhere on the iNternet. to determine who gives to political types. Shouldn't be at all difficult for someone to find how many individuals, as opposed to members of the ruling class/corporate drones Labrador has accepted bribes from"listened" to.)
*In retrospect, maybe a bit harsh: Once the blight of fascism is cleared from the land we should return it to the native peoples, salt-free. Coeur d'Alene, Moscow, Lewiston, they're all yours!

†Note well the would-be theocrats attempting to disguise their brutal fascism by invoking left wing concepts like democracy. Ideological purity or not, they aren't so pure they don't know what does & doesn't work in some aspects of politics. Which means that even hick legislators from places like Idaho's whitesome, delightsome First District realize that most Americans are not as crazed & ignorant as the aged honky evangelicals & fundamentalists who are the Republicans' constituents. What a surprise, never-ending hypocrisy. We hate to appear jaded (when really we're totally numb) but will this ever, ever just fucking stop?
