Weasel-Dick Weds.

Petraeus would have to notify probation officer if named Secretary of State

No idea how Federal probation works, but it'd be pretty damn funny if Gen. Betrayed-U.S.'s probation officer wouldn't let him take the job because being around all the low-life scumbags, crooks, cronies & cretins of the Trump Admin. would be highly detrimental to his rehabilitaion. As if that lying, cheating sack of shit could ever be rehabilitated.

Why MARVEL Movies Suck

Judging from this, all their wage-slaves are over-worked & sleep-deprived.You'll be sorry you ruined your health for a mess of pottage, show biz chump.


His Majesty's precious, nay, sacred, fees-fees are hurt when one notes what a literal sack of grotesquerie he is.
Anxiously awaiting a visit from the Secret Service, or maybe "losing my citizenship". Not that I care, because I'll be homeless & then dead as soon as Social Security & Medicare are repealed.

Woman W/ Issues, Again

This sad woman is going to have the shit beaten out of her if she doesn't get professional assistance w/ all of her issues w/ people who work for a living.I think we can eliminate "economic anxiety" as a cause of her assholery; after all, she (claims to) have a "90,000 dollar a year" job. And one can imagine why she so often isn't treated as she feels she should be. Typical Trumpie, in other words: Privileged, entitled, obnoxious & mentally ill. (Trumpian English, noted here & in her other star turn: She thinks "name-call" is a verb, as in "you name-called me", rather than "you called me a name".)

Making The Swamp Deeper

"And Now, From What We Had Understood ..."

What in the hell is this delusional, paranoid & so disgraced by election shenanigans she can't run for anything ever again cretin/retard talking about?
Obama, she said, “was about to separate the Jewish people from her land in, essentially, a forced genocidal exodus, a removal from the biblical lands.”
Th' fuck? Were the voices in her head telling her that?Well, Michele, Obummer still has a few wks. to "git 'er done". What's stopping him? Shortage of moving vans?

Typical Trumpites

She seems nice. Apparently being informed that Michael's is out of big free bags but you can buy one for a dollar is the worst reverse-racism & discrimination possible.Doesn't seem to be suffering from much economic anxiety, does she?

Are these fucking people mind-readers? How can they tell they're being "discriminated" against for voting Trump? Another winner:

Man who yelled ‘Trump!’ in viral Starbucks video: ‘I had a bad day’

Previous bad days: the one in 2008 when he was arrested on a DUI charge. The one a week later when he was again charged with DUI. And the day in 2014 when he was charged with domestic violence, which was later dropped. And there were all those days, going back years, when he emailed the Miami Herald with rants against Cubans, women, immigrants, gays and lesbians, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Sanguesa, 53, was identified Thursday after the video went viral. He told the Miami Herald he had apologized to Starbucks — then did a quick turnaround threatening to sue the company for discrimination and causing him to lose business.

“I had a bad day. I was wrong for screaming at her. I have since apologized,” Sanguesa said Thursday morning.

In a second interview with the Herald, he added: “My attorneys want to file a lawsuit. No one saw the first part of the video. I was completely done wrong. I was racially discriminated against. I was refused service. I was wrong to get upset, but I was racially discriminated against.

“She wouldn’t serve me,” he said. “She knew I was a Trump supporter and wouldn’t give me my coffee.”
Not to mock the afflicted (Much. On the other hand, IM1RU12?) but ...
Sanguesa, who said he suffers from mental illness and did not take his medication the day of the incident . . .
Is that what happened? Did the lesser part of American voters just "forget" their medication on 8 November?

Ultra-American Bandstand

Trump's National Socialismecurity Advisor is Army Lt. Gen. (ret'd./forced out) Michael Flynn, a/k/a "Mad Dog". As in rabid & foaming at the mouth. Yes, Trump's found yet another of the best people. And apparently under the same rock he's turned over to find his other brilliant selections. Excerpts for the busy, w/ better headline:
Gen. Michael Flynn's Slow Descent Into Madness
It's the standard mess of bullshitting, contradiction & fearful delusion. And that's just Mad Dog Mike. He & his putative boss, President-elect Pussy-Grabber, don't have their stories straight either, as noted in a review of the general's new book, co-authored w/ fear-mongering old fool Michael Ledeen. (We could rest our case w/ those last two words alone.)

Must be fun to be able to be so jaw-droppingly two-faced. (Or so blithe to reality you just don't care. Added possibility: Senile dementia.) Gen. Flynn called security protocols ‘stupid’ but criticized Clinton for the same during campaign
No, really?

Hint to the "Mad Dog": These two numbers are jokes, kinda. If Trump wants to be taken seriously, or respected, or whatever for his pathetic psychological needs to be met, he might not let national security policy be set by a cashiered cretin who doesn't get that some beer-swilling musicians from L.A. are making a funny.
What. Ever. Too late to draft me!

Today In Canine Emotion

Very disappointed in the terror community. After the forces of reaction, repression & security theater🛂 practically begged for an attack on the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade by claiming how safe it would be due to the many many oinking pigs protecting the idiotic event nothing happened! Nothing!!

90 yrs. of this horsecrap💩 parade w/o terror attacks, & I'm supposed to be grateful? I think not.

I cannot wait until Trumpy-Lumpy is in office & starts transforming this nation of subhuman 🐑 into the third world shithole it deserves & wants to be.

On the other hand, fingers crossed for Black Friday attacks💣. Security theater can't protect an entire nation of suckers bent on consuming. Shop 'til you drop (in a pool of your own blood).

Already A Holiday Classic?
🦃(Or Just A Turkey?)🦃

This 🦃touching little Thanksgiving tale🦃 has been on (albeit currently at the bottom of) the popular items list at the foot of this pile of 💩 for some time, holidays or not. No idea why; no one linked to it that I know, nor is it an embarrassing celebrity picture that might pop up in a typical search by idiots on the iNternet, but if it's popular, we'll bring it back.

And you may be absolutely certain I'll not be leaving the bunker today.

Today In The First Amendment & Winning Friends & Influencing People

Oh my.
President-elect Donald Trump raged at anchors and executives from America’s five largest television networks during an off-the-record meeting Monday, according to a new report.

Two sources described the hour-long meeting at New York City’s Trump Tower in catastrophic terms to The New York Post.

“It was like a fucking firing squad,” one source said of the meeting. "Trump started with [CNN President] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed.’"

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down.”

The Post’s second source said the meeting included 30 to 40 people, and said Trump also took aim at ABC and NBC.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room full of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong,'" the source said. "He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about a female correspondent who got it wrong.

“Then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when [Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary [Clinton] lost [and] who hosted a debate — which was [ABC’s] Martha Raddatz, who was also in the room.”
Christ, what an asshole.

Then Trump's bottle-blonde Denier-in-Chief opened her not-really-denying ("He did not explode in anger"; doesn't deny any of the alleged statements, however.) yap, & issued a threat.
Top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway disputed the New York Post story.

"No, that's not true at all," she said on Bloomberg Politics' 'With All Due Respect." "I sat right to his left. He did not explode in anger. By the way, it's an off-the-record meeting so whoever said that and mischaracterized it should think twice."

Monday’s meeting was attended by ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News and CNN, as well as MSNBC, NBC’s cable news arm.

The meeting was arranged by Conway, who served as Trump’s campaign manager for the final few months of the White House race. The conversation was deemed off-the-record, meaning the participants agreed not to publicly discuss its contents.

Trump regularly attacked the media throughout his campaign, calling it “corrupt” and labeling reporters as “outright liars.”

The billionaire has not yet held a press conference as president-elect, a longstanding tradition for America’s new leaders.
Maybe you should think twice yourself, Ms. Conway. The next administration may not be as forgiving of criminal activities by its predecessors as chickenshit Obama's admin. was.

UPDATE 1825 P.S.T.: Steve M. thinks it's all posing bullshit, & the N.Y. Post's "source" could easily be Trump hisse'f or a flunky/flunkie.

Today In "I'm Sorry"

Bet the Roman Catholic Church is real real sorry about all those young boys, too.
The Catholic Church in Rwanda apologized on Sunday for the church's role in the 1994 genocide, saying it regretted the actions of those who participated in the massacres.

"We apologize for all the wrongs the church committed. We apologize on behalf of all Christians for all forms of wrongs we committed. We regret that church members violated (their) oath of allegiance to God's commandments," said the statement by the Conference of Catholic Bishops, which was read out in parishes across the country

The statement acknowledged that church members planned, aided and executed the genocide, in which over 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed by Hutu extremists.
"Well excuuuuuse me!"
Can we just get started killing everyone, everywhere, now, & in every sense of the word "indiscriminately"?

Freak-Out Fri.!

Great title, but w/ what do we fill this box? Lessee ... nope. Uh ... um ... well, this might freak-out some:
It’s polar night there now — the sun isn’t rising in much of the Arctic. That’s when the Arctic is supposed to get super-cold, when the sea ice that covers the vast Arctic Ocean is supposed to grow and thicken.

But in fall of 2016 — which has been a zany year for the region, with multiple records set for low levels of monthly sea ice — something is totally off. The Arctic is super-hot, even as a vast area of cold polar air has been displaced over Siberia.
Zany. Totally. And gives us an easy & quick cop-out or two.
Can't get much longer or whiter.
Another freak out:
WorldNetDaily author David Kupelian appeared on TheDove TV’s “Focus Today” program last week to discuss the election results, declaring that America dodged a bullet by not electing Hillary Clinton as president because doing so would have literally driven millions of young people insane.

“We would have seen how evil works if we had Hillary Clinton as president,” Kupelian said. “She would have literally driven many people insane. I mean that in a clinical way.”

While older people would have responded to a Clinton presidency by praying more and stocking up on food and supplies, Kupelian asserted, young people would have been driven over the edge and soon started carrying out mass killings.

“To have an outright criminal married to a certified sexual predator in the White House and to glorify that and all that is implied in society elevating these people back into positions of ultimate power, as basically the rulers of the world,” he stated, “to a lot of young people whose souls and views are still being formed, they’d go nuts. And you’d see more acting out and criminality and people doing crazy things. You’d say, ‘My God, how did that happen? Why did this person go and shoot up a classroom of people?’ and so forth. I’m saying, you elevate somebody like that to the president and you unleash hell.”
Project much? I mean that in a clinical way as well.
We'll see if we "dodged a bullet" (or are about to take one between the eyes) soon enough.

Post-Election Stress Disorder

Gingrich (unlike Giuliani) realizes he's too wretched, disliked & hypocritical to take any official position in the Trump Admin.
“I want to be free to network across the whole system and look at what we have to do to succeed,” Gingrich said when briefly reached by phone. Holding a Cabinet post would have been “not physically doable,” he said.
I grifted those suckers so well my lard ass can continue its unprecedented growth right here on the couch.
Meanwhile, convicted passer-of-classified-info Gen. Betrayedus thinks he's qualified for Sec'y. of State, although, according to all patriotic & real 'Murkins the winner of the popular vote, that Clinton woman, should have gone to jail for nothingsending &/or receiving e-mails.

Will no one hijack an airliner & fly it into Trump's Trump Tower bedroom? (Yes, while his lard ass is in there.)

Of course the whole thing is absurd: It won't work w/ Calif. alone; our family members, friends & neighbo(u)rs from the great states of Oregon, Washington & Hawai'i, the estado of Baja California & the province of British Columbia have to join us in building a wall between our Coast & Ocean & those sad places where the jet stream blows our trash & debris.

Picking The Winners

P.B.S. prognosticates.
Some T-shirt deal.
Have now marked the mail-in ballot, detached the ballot stub, placed the ballot in the ballot secrecy sleeve & sealed the whole mess in the signed & dated ballot return envelope. Now, an eight-block walk to the polls to drop it like a hand grenade.

Interesting that Donald J. Trump & Michael R. Pence are on the American Independent Party ticket as well as running as Republicans in the Golden State. Yep, that's the ran-George-Wallace-in-1968 (& won five states) A.I.P. (not to be confused w/ Hollywood's American International Pictures, of course).

Our Presidential vote went to old stand-by (since 1967) Cali's own Peace & Freedom Party. LA RIVA-BANKS 2016! (Pretty much took the party's advice on all 17 Props. as well.)

Voted underdog (U.S. Senate)/anti-incumbent (U.S. Rep. & Assembly Member) for each "voter-nominated office". As noted before, "California's nonpartisan blanket primary ensures this reporter couldn't vote for a Republican (other than the Presidential ticket) even if he wanted to"; no one for whom I voted will win, but why not attempt to throw the bastards out? And while it wasn't intentional, I'm sensing a Hillary Clinton-ish theme here: Both Dems running aginst (male) incumbents are of the female persuasion, as are the four judicial candidates for whom I voted, on the basis of Democratic Party endorsements. Another good basis: Any site prominently displaying this:
Warning: Do NOT Vote for a Judicial Activist
tells you exactly how not to vote.

And our U.S. Sen. choice was between two wymyn of color, vying to replace a Jewish woman. Matter of days until Gawd punishes us w/ an earthquake commensurate w/ our sins, we s'pose.

Except the Clinton-ish theme stops at Gloria La Rivas, Peace & Freedom's Presidential candidate. You can have your first female President cake w/o eating it w/ Sec'y. Clinton or Dr. Stein!

Guam Results In!!

Guam is Clinton Country!!
Courtesy Red Paw Technologies.
HAGATNA, Guam — Hillary Clinton has overwhelmingly won the vote on the tiny U.S. island of Guam.

The territory, located west of the international date line, is 15 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and bills itself as “Where America’s Day Begins.”

With 32,071 voters casting ballots, Democrat Clinton received 71.63% of the vote. Republican Donald Trump received 24.16%, and Socialist candidate Emidio Soltysik — the only third-party candidate on the ballot — received 4.22%.

Although all voters here are American citizens, their votes in the presidential race do not count because Guam has no representation in the Electoral College. Unlike U.S. citizens who live in foreign countries, Guam residents are not allowed to vote absentee from states.

While the result of the Guam election has no bearing on the national election, it may be an indicator of how the rest of the country will vote. Residents here have correctly chosen the winner of each presidential race since 1980, when the first straw poll for president was conducted.

Most recently:

• In 2012, President Obama received 72.4% in the straw poll vs. 26.5% for Republican Mitt Romney.

• In 2008, Obama won the island 57.3% to 34% for the GOP nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

• In 2004, incumbent President George W. Bush won 64% to 35.1% for Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democratic nominee.

The predictive ability of the island was upset in 1996, when an Election Day typhoon delayed voting. America had already selected Bill Clinton as president before islanders went to the polls.

Guam had almost 52,000 registered voters as of Nov. 1, according to the Guam Election Commission.

What The Fools Believe

In Lost Wages, a not-musical Michael McDonald opens his idiot yap & crap comes out.
The chairman, Michael McDonald, was referring to a polling location in Clark County, which is 30% Hispanic and the county in which Las Vegas is located. The polling location stayed open to allow voters who were already in line -- many of whom waited more than two hours, according to local reports -- to cast their ballots.

"Last night, in Clark County, they kept a poll open 'til 10 o'clock at night so a certain group could vote," McDonald said in introductory remarks at the rally. "The polls are supposed to close at 7. This was kept open until 10. Yeah, you feel free right now? You think this is a free and easy election? That's why it's important."
Of course it's a total, complete & absolute lie, which Trump was happy to continue spouting.
Dan Kulin, a spokesperson for the county, said no early no early voting stations extended their closing times. They did, however, process voters who were in line at closing time to allow as many people to vote as possible.

The latest vote was cast at 10:10 p.m. at Silverado Ranch, which closed at 8 p.m. and had been experiencing about a two-hour delay when CNN visited the station.

A message left with the Trump campaign was not immediately returned.

Taking the stage here, Trump then suggested that the polling location's extended closing time to allow voters to cast their ballots is a sign of a "rigged system" pitted against his campaign.

"It's being reported that certain key Democratic polling locations in Clark County were kept open for hours and hours beyond closing time to bus and bring democratic voters in. Folks, it's a rigged system. It's a rigged system and we're going to beat it. We're going to beat it," Trump said Saturday.
Only thing Trump'll be beating is his own pud, assuming he can get those tiny little fingers around it after the Viagara injections. Pin-dicked loser.

S.O.P.: Once any of them lie, another swears to it:
Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Sunday morning defended Trump's claim that a polling place staying open late in Nevada shows that the system is "rigged."

A polling location in Clark County, Nevada, stayed open for about two hours after the polls were set to close for the night to accommodate early voters who had been waiting in line since before the time polls were set to close.
That lying sack & her bottle-blonde hair are going to hell. Remember, you read it here first!!

[Full disclosure, not that it makes a heckuva lotta difference to ya: In 1979, this reporter's then-employer introduced him (hand-shake & all) to the musical Michael McDonald, at a rehearsal for a (The?) Lowell George memorial. Our boss had once been the tour manager for the dull-ass Doobie Bros.]

"Here, Rover! Good Boy!"

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
Trump Rolls Out Anti-Semitic Closing Ad  —  Take a moment to look at this closing ad from Donald Trump.  —  From a technical and thematic perspective it's a well made ad.  It's also packed with anti-Semitic dog whistles, anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Semitic vocabulary.
Would you care for further "discussion"? Try some from fucking weirdo Scott "Dilrod" Adams, who's not worried about any "message", per se, but is quite impressed w/ the use of red:
I had been wondering if Trump was planning some sort of special closing argument. He did not disappoint. In my opinion, his final ad is the political ad of the year, if not the best ever. Watch it here first and I’ll include my thoughts below.

Here’s what makes this ad so special:

1. Trump delivers his lines perfectly, like an experienced actor. We haven’t heard him like this before. You probably didn’t think he had this in him. He stays calm and assured, but not cocky. That is an effective counter-framing to Clinton’s framing of Trump as an unpredictable madman. Here Trump comes off as perfectly reasonable and deeply empathetic

2. The timing is perfect. This race went so low that even the trolls were starting to gasp for oxygen. Trump made us wait for relief – Hollywood style. He made us crave civility and sanity. And just when we thought it was out of reach, he goes ultra-positive.

But here’s the best part. Clinton has no good options to counter this message. If she stays dark, Trump finishes as the inspirational one. If she tries to match his positive message, she has little chance of doing it this well.

3. While Obama is out talking about his legacy, and Clinton is out talking about making history as the first woman president, Trump (the narcissist) asks for the American people’s help in draining the swamp and making America great again. That’s one heckuva contrast to end on.

4. The writing for Trump’s speech is great. The editing is great. The production is great. The visual artistry is fantastic. This one will be studied for a long time, not only for its persuasion excellence and production values but also for its strategic timing.

5. Trump’s strongest message at this point is that Clinton is corrupt in a variety of hard-to-explain ways. People don’t need to understand the details. They just have to hear the message enough. This video uses visual persuasion perfectly to portray the halls of power and corruption versus the people united. The color red is exceptionally well-used. It activates us.

You just witnessed something special.

— You might enjoy my book because Trump’s video was well-made.
Ah, the positive uplifting message of anti-Semitism, & of course Clinton is so corrupt you can't even understand it, so why bother offering facts or evidence, just keep repeating the big lie, right?

Voting By The Numbers

State Propositions on the ballot: 17.

Pages in the Calif. General Election Official Voter Information Guide, from Secretary of State Alex Padilla: 224. (Including covers, but they're numbered, no doubt for legal reasons.)

Other official gov't. materials rec'd: Three. The Voter Information Pamphlet Special Municipal Election, from L.A. City Clerk Holly L. Wolcott, & two from L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean C. Logan, the Official Sample Ballot General Election & Official Vote By Mail Balloting Material.

Proposition-specific Mailers: 12. Three from No on 56, three from No on Prop 61, three from Yes on Proposition 52, two from No on RRR, Neighborhoods Against the DWP* Power Grab, "a coalition of environmental groups, consumer advocacy organizations, and employee organizations". (No true America-hater can resist that.) & one from the Coalition to Preserve L.A., which is pro Measure HHH & anti-Measure JJJ.

City Measures: Four.

County Measures: Two.

Oddities: Mailers from both Yes on 52 & No on 56 feature images of actual doctors, both sporting white lab/doctor coats (one w/ name embroidered on the coat, one w/ name-pin) & stethoscopes slung over their shoulders, in best stock photo practice.

Candidate mailers: Nine. Eight from Miguel Santiago for Assembly 2016, one from the Sandra Mendoza for Assembly Committee. Santiago's the incumbent & endorsed by the Gov. & many other Democratic officeholders, Mendoza ran against him two yrs. ago (maybe four as well, who can remember?) & is both a self-proclaimed grandmother & member of I.B.E.W. Local 11-E.A.A. (Santiago is endorsed by I.B.E.W. Local 18, hope there's no trouble.) which looks like a real union, so I'll waste my vote on Sandra. Again. Added ha-ha: California's nonpartisan blanket primary ensures this reporter couldn't vote for a Republican (other than the Presidential ticket) even if he wanted to.

Pay-for-play endorsement mailers: 10. Two (duplicates) from Educate Your Vote - a Project of the Coalition for Literacy & one from Election Digest - a Project of the Coalition for Literacy, two (duplicate) Budget Watchdog News Letters (Yes, fascist scaredy-pants bullshit: "Prop 62 means brutal killers get healthcare, privileges at Taxpayer expense for life No-62, Yes-66 for victims.") one from California Early Voter Guide (F.P.P.C. I.D. #1387464) & one from Californians Vote Green (F.P.P.C. I.D. #1323171) both from the same address & suite number in Long Beach, which tells us "mail drop", one from Voter Guide Slate Cards (also from a "suite" in Long Beach, although a different address) a California Senior Advocates League Voter Guide (F.P.P.C. I.D. 1368249) & our favorite, from Californians for Quality Education, which suggests I vote for Gary Johnson & Loretta Sanchez. Dunno if this merely means Johnson bought the space ("Loretta Sanchez's Placement: Paid for by Citizens for Strong Leadership ... and not authorized by candidate or committee") but as there's no indication of such I wonder if Johnson's mug is on it because I'm "decline-to-state".

Of the other 10, the two duplicates of the three from the Coalition for Literacy ignored the Senate race while the third said Kamala Harris or Loretta Sanchez, five others didn't mention the race, & one other was also "paid for by Citizens for Strong Leadership". Part of her blurb there reads: "Kamala Harris is an extreme leftist!"

More Cretinous Crackers?

Yes please! I cannot wait until I get to kill a Republican nutjob in self-defense. Bring it on, Klan fans!

Probably shouldn't get so excited, chances are none of the above dipsticks will show their hate-filled asses anywhere near where I live. But don't think I'm not ready. Salivating at the idea, even; look at these morons:
Neo-Nazi leader Andrew Anglin plans to muster thousands of poll watchers across all 50 states. His partners at the alt-right website “the Right Stuff” are touting plans to set up hidden cameras at polling places in Philadelphia and hand out liquor and marijuana in the city’s “ghetto” on Election Day to induce residents to stay home. The National Socialist Movement, various factions of the Ku Klux Klan and the white nationalist American Freedom Party all are deploying members to watch polls, either “informally” or, they say, through the Trump campaign.

The Oath Keepers, a group of former law enforcement and military members that often shows up in public heavily armed, is advising members to go undercover and conduct “intelligence-gathering” at polling places, and Donald Trump ally Roger Stone is organizing his own exit polling, aiming to monitor thousands of precincts across the country.


“We are organizing poll watchers in urban areas to cut down on the most traditional type of voter fraud. We also will have stationary cameras hidden at polling locations in Philadelphia, to monitor anyone that comes in to vote and make sure that the same people are not voting at multiple locations. If we see people voting in multiple locations the footage will be submitted to the [Federal Election Commission] as well as put out on social media to undermine the legitimacy of [Hillary] Clinton should she steal the election.”

The representative, who did not provide his name, went on to explain, "Many polling locations are in schools, and black schools are so disorderly that pretty much any official-looking white person with a clipboard can gain access to them ahead of time and set up a hidden camera. You don't really ever even have to speak with an adult. Simply walk in like you belong there and no one even asks you why you are there. So we usually go in teams of two, one person driving and one person dressed as a blue collar worker with a clipboard, and we set up a hidden camera in the school cafeteria. Go during lunchtime and the teachers are all so busy trying to contain the kids that no one says anything. We already have a few set up."
Yeah, I'll bet you do.

First Amendment, Hell! Time To Start Regulating The "Churches"

Pervert Church:
A defrocked Roman Catholic priest who was convicted of molesting two boys and sentenced to eight years in prison resurfaced at a non-sanctioned South Los Angeles church, where he resumed leading church services using an alias, according to a broadcast report.

Fox11 reported that former priest Carlos Rodriguez, who was convicted in Ventura County in 2004 of molesting the boys in Santa Paula, was defrocked in 1998 and prevented from having any affiliation with the Catholic church. Despite that, he used the name Carlos Ramirez and began preaching at the small South Los Angeles church, to the surprise of some parishioners.

“I’m shocked,” one parishioner told Fox11 when told of Rodriguez’s past. Another said she was “indignant” and prayed the church community would take the appropriate action.

Following the station’s inquiries, Rodriguez was barred from the church, Fox11 reported.

Rodriguez refused to talk to the station, hiding his face and telling a reporter, “You’re not going to get anything, sorry.”

One of Rodriguez’s victims from Santa Paula, Manuel Barragan, told the station his life was forever altered by his molestation as a teenager.

“This man had a key to our house,” Barragan told Channel 11. “He had a key to our home. I don’t blame my parents for that. It was just a bad decision to let another man into our home, even if he was (purporting) to be a man of God.”

He said the molestation affected him emotionally and spiritually.

“I was raped as a child,” he said.

Anthony DeMarco, an attorney who has represented victims of Rodriguez, told the station Rodriguez is a sexual predator who used his position to gain access to children.

“Father Rodriguez went into some of the most vulnerable communities, communities where people felt disenfranchised, where they didn’t feel like they could go to any authorities and talk, where the children themselves, because of the reverence priests were held in, didn’t feel that they could tell anyone about it. And he knew that,” DeMarco told Fox11.
While we're at it, let's start taxing these religious scams.

People Whose Houses Should Be Burned To The Ground:

Among many others, every member of the Los Angeles City Council who voted for this bullshit.
On Thursday, the Los Angeles City Council voted in favor of banning people from living in their vehicles between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. in residential districts, or at any time within one block of a school or park.

Ten city councilmembers voted in favor of the ban, four were absent and one, Councilmember Nury Martinez, voted against the ban.
Hmmm. Looks as if every council member but Ms. Martinez should find their pig asses on the street, w/o money & looking for shelter. Unless of course the council members are in their houses when they burn to the ground. That'd be one fucking shame, wouldn't it?

And of course this sort of thing is un-Constitutional. I also don't get this no nothing, nohow near schools & parks. Is the fucking council so dense they think people, homeless or otherwise, won't walk an extra block to do whatever horrid thing it is that they are expected to do in the school or park? Idiotic assholes.
