I Will Cut You, & Your Crummy Battery!!

Earlier this eve. I blew 10% of my Biden Bux on a new 'phone, as frustration at my maybe-two-yrs.-old piece of Motorola crap's refusal to recognize the SD card or even fucking realize the headphones are plugged in took over.

Good thing I did, too, as I decided to make another attempt at re-seating the SD card. Took the case off the 'phone & noticed the damn thing was bulging. (Apparently cheap piece-of-shit lithium-ion polymer batteries manufactured by Chinese slaves in the thrall of Ningde Amperex Technology Limited expand when they're effed up.)
Started to remove the back of the 'phone & it almost flew off by itself. And of course the fucking thing won't work w/o a battery, even when plugged into the AC.

Swear to fuck, I will chop this damned piece of plastic shit into smaller pieces & insert every last particle painfully into the keister of the shithead motherfucker who is in charge of this Lenovo® Corporation, also responsible for the gawddam Lenovo® IdeaCentre A340 I own that needed a new hard drive nine months after purchase. Fuck your mouth too, YANG Yuanqing, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. I'm sure none of these pricks, nor the three bitches among them, are innocent either, so they're all on my list. 

Fuck every one of you shitheels to hell. Any of you have the guts to leave China & face me one-on-one to explain your corporate shittiness? Didn't think so. FUCK. YOU!!

War w/ China? I've heard worse ideas. Free the slaves, even if it kills them!!

Two Great Minds, One Hungry Thought

Guy interviewed in the Local Times had the same thing on his mind post-poke as this reporter.
Mike Carson, 39, battled traffic for 2½ hours to get from Long Beach to the campus. He persisted, he said, because he didn’t want to catch “The Rona.”

“When they announced on the news yesterday that this was opening up and they have these open spots, I was like, I’m just gonna go and try to get it done early,” Carson said. His only plan after was to go to In-N-Out.

It's Always Something

Had to spend 10 or so mins. "chatting" w/ a moron "virtual agent" & then a not much smarter humanoid agent about the idiots at Spectrum not showing the Clipper game on TNT because they were under the impression the local Clipper outlet was showing it as well. Cretins.

Today also marks 28 days since this reporter rec'd. his J&J poke; may just voyage to Burbank & spend some of those sweet Biden Bucks to stimulate the local economy Train Shack one of these wks.

Other good & unexpected news: Ordered something early yesterday, & was advised not to expect it for two wks. An e-mail rec'd. at 0901 which I didn't see until about 1440 led me to this,
& before I knew it this:

Today's Stupid Lying Jerk

Ashton Pittman / Mississippi Free Press:
Mississippi Elections Chief Warns Biden May Register ‘Uninformed,’ ‘Woke’ College Voters  —  Mississippi's top election official says he is worried that the nation will suffer if more “woke” and “uninformed” college students become registered voters.  Mississippi Secretary of State Michael Watson made that remark in a televised interview while describing President Joe Biden’s March 6 executive order on “promoting access to voting.” 

 Among other things, the president’s executive order directs the heads of federal agencies to develop strategic plans to “promote voter registration and participation,” possibly including “distributing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot applications in the course of regular services.” 

On March 26, Watson claimed during an interview with WLOX that Biden was “basically employing all the federal agencies, universities and colleges to register as many folks as they can via this automatic voter registration.” Biden’s order does not mention colleges, universities or automatic registration. 

“So think about all those woke college and university students now who will automatically be registered to vote whether they wanted to or not. Again, if they didn’t know to opt-out, they’re going to be automatically registered to vote and then they receive this mail-in ballot that they probably didn’t know was coming because they didn’t know they were registered to vote,” the Mississippi Republican said. 

“You’ve got an uninformed citizen who may not be prepared and ready to vote. Automatically, it’s forced on them: ‘Hey, go make a choice.’ And our country’s going to pay for those choices.”
Helluva lot more idiocy & buffoonery at the link. These people are permanently brain damaged & must be removed from public life before they can fulfill their dreams of "cancelling" us.

Friday Among The Liberal Blogs

Ponce Finds Florida, Wilson Wants War, Argies Seize Falklands

Good News For Modern Man!

Godlessness on the loose!

In assigning culpability for this trend, one could assemble a long list of plausible co-conspirators. The ascendance of the Evangelical right likely damaged Christianity’s brand with social liberals by associating the faith with theocratic politics, while pedophilic priests and their enablers surely drove no small number of American Catholics from the pews. In Gallup’s polling, the decline in church membership has been especially steep among self-identified Catholics, falling 18 points since 2000, compared to 9 points among Protestants.
Tell 'em, Darby*!Not merely a tonic for the human spirit, but a political positive as well.
This reality helps explain some curious aspects of contemporary politics. For example, many pundits have puzzled over the divergent political trajectories of Wisconsin and Ohio. Although both states have shifted right since the Obama era, the former has remained competitive while the latter has gone solid red. If one focuses on race and education, this split is hard to explain. Both states are heavily working-class, with nearly identical percentages of Ohioans and Wisconsinites holding college degrees, while African Americans comprise roughly twice as large a share of Ohio’s population as they do of Wisconsin’s. Thus, if you only looked at these two variables, you’d assume that the Buckeye State was the bluer battleground. But religiosity presents a countervailing distinction. In Pew’s polling, 58 percent of Ohioans say they are “highly religious,” which makes their state the 17th-most religious in the country. By contrast, only 45 percent of Wisconsinites identify as highly religious; only five states demonstrate lower levels of religiosity, and all of them are blue.
[...]
Liberal analyses of the GOP’s war on voting rights tend to characterize it as a reaction against the nation’s burgeoning racial diversity. And this is surely one driver of the phenomenon. But it’s worth noting that the eclipse of conservative Christian America is real, while that of majority-white America is a paranoid delusion. According to Census Bureau projections, white Americans will still comprise over 68 percent of the U.S. population in 2060, so long as one includes Hispanic Americans who identify as white in that category. The complexion of America’s white majority may shift, as it has many times before. But it’s not actually disappearing. White conservative Christians, by contrast, are already a minority of the U.S. electorate. 
[...] 
The Republican Party can still compete for political supremacy within America’s existing institutions. But its moral traditionalists cannot regain cultural hegemony absent some kind of a counterrevolution. If such a project is practically implausible, it is increasingly ideologically permissible on the right side of the aisle. Thus, the coming decade of U.S. politics may be defined, in part, by the struggle to prevent conservative Christianity from taking democracy down with it.

So Now It's Freemasons Vs. Flat-Earthers In Canada?

Elizabeth Simons / Canadian Anti-Hate Network:
EXCLUSIVE: Suspect In Three Vancouver Masonic Lodge Fires Shared Antisemitic, QAnon-Related Content On Facebook  —  Social media posts highlight a deep belief in flat earth, QAnon related conspiracy theories, and claims that Freemasonry is a form of Judaism.

A Vancouver man has been arrested in relation to one of three fires reported at Freemason Lodges throughout the city.

The Vancouver Police Department has charged Benjamin Kohlman, 42, of Vancouver with one count of arson and one count of assault against a police officer. The investigation into the other two fires is still ongoing. 

“The two arsons that occurred in North Vancouver yesterday are still under investigation,” said VPD Constable Tania Visintin, in a press release. “We anticipate recommending more charges to Crown counsel in the coming weeks related to the North Vancouver files.”

A review of Kohlman’s social media reveals that the suspect’s views toward Freemasons is rooted in antisemitism. 

In an exchange in 2018 with someone on his social media, Kohlman asked “Earlier you mentioned your family has a history in Freemasonry. This is a form of Judaism is it not? Is this why you defend the globe so passionately? Is it right in your name? Jew Ball.”

Kohlman goes on to claim that while not all Jews are part of a global conspiracy, Freemasons are Jewish.

“These Elite people are Jewish Freemasons who belong to groups such as the Illuminati, Builderburg, Skull and Bones, Bohiemian [sic] Grove, and other secret societies.”

In other social media posts, Kohlman expresses a deep belief in flat earth theories, 5G conspiracies, and a new world order -- all stemming from his certainty in a global conspiracy by the elites and Freemasons.

Kohlman also spread antisemitic theories connecting Jewish people to Lucifer, and the Illuminati. In one post from 2018 he writes, “The flag for my province represents the British monarchy ruling, and it is a monarchy. Not only are the Knights Templar and the Jewish colours represented but the sun represents Lucifer, the light bringer. At one point the good people of the world managed to disband the order of the knights, but it was short lived and they reformed as the Illuminati. The keepers of light (knowledge). Gold can covertly represent the sun, Lucifer or Satan.”

Kohlman also shares content consistent with QAnon -- posts about adrenochrome, satanic rituals involving children, and pedophilia are found on his profiles. 

“The world is ran [sic] by Satanic paedophiles. They like to torture and traumatise their victims so that there is a lot of adrenaline in the blood which makes them high when they drink it,” Kohlman wrote in 2019.

Peppered throughout his social media is the idea that opposition to flat earth theory is satanic and controlled by “the elite.”

“Flat Earth believers generally agree that Satanic paedophiles control the population and must be stopped while most globe believers are unaware.”

The first blaze began on Thursday, according to police. At around 6:45 am on Thursday, North Vancouver RCMP were notified of a structure fire at the Lynn Valley Lodge near Lynn Valley Road and Harold Road.

Before it could reach the hour, a second structure fire was reported at Duke of Connaught Lodge No. 64, home of the North Vancouver Masonic Centre.

“The building was fully engulfed while the City of North Vancouver Fire Rescue Services fought the fire,” the VPD said in a press release.

The third fire was reported at the Masonic Temple near Rupert Street and East 29th Avenue in Vancouver just before 7:30 am.

This sucker-ass chump & all like him must be removed from the anti-social media & the streets that sane people walk.

Religion Is A Mental Illness

According to West, the dream involved a stairway to Heaven made up of living multicolored stones on which the word “TRUMP” appeared in gold, “in ascending order, starting from the bottom of the stairway—touching the nations—to the highest of heights in heavenly places.” As West tells it, each letter of Trump’s name appeared with a corresponding word: Truth, Righteousness, Unity, Mercy, and Peace.

The dream involved visions of a rotting oak tree, a healing rainbow-colored whirlwind emerging from a door in the tree, a great eagle, a snake-devouring owl, the roar of a lion, the face of a lamb, and a “snow white dove” appearing “within the fiery orange winds of the mighty whirlwind,” West said.

In her interpretation of the dream, West wrote that she believes “it speaks to what God is now building and establishing in and through His Ekklesia”—a term used by Pentecostal dominionists to refer to the church as an assembly with governing authority on Earth.

11 National Guard Soldiers transporting vaccines held at gunpoint in West Texas, suspect arrested  —  Idalou Police responded to the scene  —  LUBBOCK COUNTY, Texas (KCBD) - An Arizona man has been arrested after he cut off and held at gunpoint a caravan of National Guardsmen transporting COVID-19 vaccines …
LUBBOCK COUNTY, Texas (KCBD) - An Arizona man has been arrested after he cut off and held at gunpoint a caravan of National Guardsmen transporting COVID-19 vaccines to Matador, Texas around 7 a.m. this morning [Sic, you redundant fuck!], according to Idalou Police.

Larry Harris, of Willcox, Arizona, is accused of following three National Guard vans from Love’s Travel Station on East Regis Street in Lubbock to about two miles east of Idalou. Police say Harris attempted multiple times to run the vans off of the roadway. He then turned his vehicle into oncoming traffic on Hwy. 62/82 and stopped the vans. He then pointed a gun at an unarmed National Guardsman, identified himself as a detective, and demanded to search the vehicles and ordered the rest of the unarmed guardsmen out of their vehicles at gunpoint.11 National Guardsmen held at gunpoint while transporting COVID-19 vaccines to Matador, Texas on Monday, March 22, 2021.

Harris told police he thought the people in the vans had kidnapped a woman and child. All 11 of the Guardsmen were in uniform.

When police arrived on the scene, Harris was in possession of a loaded Colt 1911 pistol .45 Caliber. He had an additional loaded magazine on his person and another loaded magazine in his truck, police say.

The Idalou officers took Harris into custody without further incident.

Harris was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful restraint of 11 National Guard Soldiers, unlawful carrying of a weapon, impersonating a Public Servant, and interference with Texas Military Forces. The Idalou Police Department is currently investigating this incident. The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the investigation.

None of the Guardsmen were injured and none of them were armed.

“Mr. Harris appeared to be mentally disturbed. This was a very dangerous situation since the suspect was standing in the midst of the unarmed Guardsman with a loaded weapon when the Idalou Officers arrived on scene. We are grateful that the officers were able to take him into custody without any of the Guardsmen, the officers or the suspect getting hurt,” said Eric Williams, Idalou Police Chief.

More guns for the detective-deluded, I say!

The Weed Of Crime Bears Bitter Fruit

Catalytic converter thefts continue to climb in Southern California, with one leading to the suspected thief’s death.

An employee at an Anaheim industrial building arrived to work Wednesday about 6:20 a.m. and discovered a man’s legs sticking out from underneath a company car, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer.

Based on the tools with him and his position under the car, first responders concluded he had been trying to detach the catalytic converter from the Toyota Prius, Carringer said.

“It appears he was attempting to steal a catalytic converter off the vehicle when the jack he used failed, and the jack failure caused the car to fall on top of him,” Carringer said.

30 Years Ago Today: Local Murder Too

Remembering Latasha Harlins, who was shot and killed 30 years ago by a store owner in South LA


Former LAPD Commander Michael Bostic talked about it then: “She had the money in her hand. You could see the money on the videotape. And the suspect grabbed the backpack, and there became a physical altercation over the backpack. And as our victim turned to walk away from the scene, the suspect raised a weapon and shot the victim in the back of the head.”

Latasha Harlins would have turned 45 this year on January 1. On that day, a mural featuring her portrait was unveiled. It’s on the front of the Sutton Recreation Center on Hoover Street where she used to hang out.

Florida Anaheim Man Is Naked Pyro

Comedy/Absurdity Relief:
A 50-year-old man twice convicted of exposing himself is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on charges of setting fire to a potato chip rack at a Subway restaurant in Anaheim while nude.

Jason William Ackroyd was charged with single counts each of arson of property, attempted arson of property of another and indecent exposure with a prior conviction of the crime, all felonies, as well as a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest, according to court records.

Ackroyd was accused of entering the fast food restaurant at 110 W. Lincoln Ave. about 6:30 p.m., March 8, without any clothes on and used a lighter to ignite a potato chip rack, according to Anaheim Police Department Sgt. Shane Carringer.

Ackroyd was also accused of setting fire to a portable credit card machine and cable at the restaurant, according to the criminal complaint.

Ackroyd was convicted of exposing himself June 17, 1993, in Orange County and again on Feb. 7, 2008, in Orange County, according to the criminal complaint.

Grant Schulte / Associated Press:
So, Gov. Ricketts of Neb., do you think the Xians & their Friday Fast, "a Christian practice of abstaining from animal meat, other than fish, as well as alcohol, on Fridays, or holding a fast on Fridays, found most frequently in the Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican and Methodist traditions", are a direct attack on your way of life there in Nebraska, per the AP above?
Ricketts said meat is a nutritious, protein-rich food source and noted that beef production is Nebraska’s largest industry.

“That is a direct attack on our way of life here in Nebraska,” Ricketts, a Republican, said at a news conference in an Omaha meat shop.

Waiting for a statement condemning Jesus's people & The Pope, Ricketts. Oh, not the kind of culture war you're willing to fight, you two-faced sack of beef offal?

Truly, the states are the laboratories of idiocy.
