Who's worse, the parasite bosses who leech from the people who do the work, or the fucking chump employees who willingly open their veins for the bosses every day? Nihilism is the answer, to all the idiot questions. Hell, we needn't even make anything new (let alone "better") from the rubble; tearing everything down is more than sufficient.

I don’t know how to describe this exactly. It may be the most insulting thing anyone in the Trump administration or campaign has done to Jewish Americans. Mike Pence invited “Rabbi” Loren Jacobs to give the invocation at his Michigan campaign stop today. Jacobs is actually a Christian who leads a group who calls themselves Messianic Jews. He spent eight years with the group Jews for Jesus. In his blessing, he actually says he’s not Jewish: “God of Abraham … God and Father of my Lord and Savior Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah.” For Messianic Jews, Yeshua = Jesus.
Imagine inviting an imam to do a eulogy for slain Christians, dressing him up as a priest, and have him start with a prayer to Allah. That's basically what Pence just did. https://t.co/boUe3nxdo4— Greg Fish (@GregAFish) October 29, 2018

Caitlyn Jenner: I thought Trump would help the LGBTQ community. I was wrong.
Perhaps Jenner didn't notice the context ("Perhaps". Ha ha. Dumb jock, as noted.) of Trump's "standing up" in 2016: Muzzy bashing. (From the Daily Beast link above. She linked to it!)Following Trump’s election as president, I saw fertile ground for change within the Republican Party on LGBTQ issues. Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to claim to support this valuable, vulnerable community, and I was encouraged by the applause he received when he said at the Republican National Convention in July 2016 that he would stand up for the LGBTQ community. Poll after poll showed that Americans’ views on LGBTQ issues were changing for the better — and that this groundswell extended even to the voter base of the Republican Party. I was optimistic that this was how I could leverage my privilege for change.
Nothing about the hateful home-grown religion of these United Snakes there, & all the delegates heard & applauded was "dirty rag-heads".“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” Trump said to applause.
The lesson here is that optimism is self-delusion. Get hip to this kindly tip:

(Were this a current photo, you'd see the mini-van w/ a Denver Boot on it in which some low-life is living about where the two-tone model in the pic is. And the piggies think they can profit in this 'hood? Location, location, location, morons.)
Let me also note that I am disturbed, not mentally disabled (And if you aren't disturbed by what's going on, you're crazy!) & that the slumlords have pulled the same "late rent" crap w/ me, whose gubmint money arrives the third of the month, even though the City of Los Angeles has a three-day grace period for rent, doubtless from the days when banks were closed weekends & there were no A.T.M.s.
This couldn't have come at a better time for this reporter, as I was feeling quite diminished* by the death of high school classmate Paul Allen a wk. ago. Financially diminished, that is. Paul (his ass't., really) had contacted me through Classmates.com a couple of yrs. ago, but I never replied, partly because I was afraid admitting that I was a loser driven mad by a society of idiots, living in a slum on nut case benefits & a federal housing subsidy would be de facto putting my hand out.
Paul was obviously the most successful member of our class (Bill Gates was two classes behind us.) & I'll go out on a limb & say that I'm pretty obviously the biggest loser therein, w/ the possible exception of our classmate who died in a boating accident the summer between eighth & ninth grades (checking out early may be the ultimate victory) & any others who may have died since w/o my knowledge. Embarrassing for all involved, I figured. And the most I really wanted was free services (All of them!) from Spectrum, of which he was allegedly a large/the largest stockholder. Oh well. More abandonment.
And speaking of outliving losers, I hit the big 65 last mo. (Who'd a thunk it? Speaking of abandonment, thanks for all the well-wishing & congratulations, jerks!) & was advised to expect a two-mo. pension check on or about 1 Nov. because I procrastinated (as w/ P. Allen's ass't.; what if he knew he was illin' again & was looking for people who could use some money & I blew it by waiting?) w/ the paperwork; well, got the mail today & (as I'd been secretly hoping, 'though w/ absolutely no reason to do so) apparently the paperwork went through quickly enough for a month's money to arrive. WOOOOOO!!
I now have enough disposable income to purchase a side-arm/"equalizer", should I decide to administer frontier justice to a certain bunch of parasites in Century City. (After all, they've been found liable in a court of law. ZERO-TOLERANCE, BABY!!) It's Glocktober at Turner's Outdoorsman! Or I could pick up a S&W 9mm for a mere US$379.98, & still afford more ammo than I'll need.
Print & Pixel Compare & Contrast: Above stolen verbatim from Times website. I believe the text is the same (tl;dr) but the print edition has only three photos, in color, those of Cornelia Martinez, Hilda Deras & Michael Prudhomme.
- Why was I never contacted about the lawsuit? (Although the parasite landlords sent a letter begging tenants not to sign onto any legal action should they be solicited.) Perhaps it was assumed from my surname that I wouldn't be an immediate target. Previously in the Times on the subject. I used to see Mr. Rivera at Step Up on Second; he now lives in my bldg., having moved in two yrs. later than I. Missing me & the constant busy signal does make me a bit nervous about using Public Counsel.
- If the damn mail had come earlier, I could have deposited the checks (Two in one day! The second for US$8.56 from my mother's estate, which does not forgive her in the least for dying & abandoning me. You neither, male parental unit.)
& started ordering crap on the iNternet immediately. (Did get a six-pack of Under Armour Charged Cotton® 2.0 socks at Marshall's, & ate at Fatburger. Greasier than ever!)
- Withholding taken from pension check. Will have to file a goddamn fucking tax return next yr.
I hate everything!!
