Mental Illness Up-Date: You People Are FUCKED UP!!

Found a loony!
Justin Rohrlich / The Daily Beast:
Wisconsin Vaccine Saboteur Steven Brandenburg Is a Flat-Earther, FBI Document Reveals  —  Steven Brandenburg also allegedly carried a handgun to work, and believed the sky was actually a “shield put up by the Government to prevent individuals from seeing God.”
That's a new one. And of course he's packing. This loonybin nation needs serious psychiatric help. Straitjackets for everyone, & no more fucking Jesus bullshit!!

Council Member Cedillo Speaks

Cedillo said he was especially furious that the demonstration took place in his district, which has been hit hard by the virus. In recent weeks, Cedillo’s office has posted multilingual signs in parts of Westlake, Lincoln Heights, Highland Park and Koreatown warning people they were entering a “high-risk area” for COVID-19, and he also said he’s sent staff members to knock on doors to provide information about vaccinations to senior residents.

Cedillo’s district includes several neighborhoods that are predominantly working class and Latino, two groups that have been disproportionately impacted by the virus. The number of Latinos in L.A. County who are dying from the virus on a daily basis has surged to a shocking degree in recent weeks.

“This mob feels they have a right to try to stop people like seniors, janitors, housekeepers restaurant workers and supermarket workers from getting the vaccine that they covet. That they want,” Cedillo said. “It’s just very offensive. Very arrogant. It’s an incredible sense of entitlement.”

Just who the fucking hell do these disturbed people think they are?
While it is not clear who exactly organized the protest, fliers promoting the event were shared online by the group “Shop Mask Free Los Angeles,” whose members have repeatedly shown up at local supermarkets and retail stores in recent months and attempted to purchase items without masks. The events usually end in arguments between the group’s members and store employees, and sometimes draw law enforcement responses, according to videos the group has published online.

The LAPD has responded to several incidents involving the group, normally bringing peaceful ends to their demonstrations but rarely issuing citations despite the group’s obvious repeated violations of city and county health ordinances that mandate the wearing of masks. Los Angeles police did arrest one member of the group during an incident on Jan. 20, according to city officials, but Lopez could not immediately provide information about that incident or other contacts between the LAPD and those demonstrators.

And why are none of them in custody? Damn moron police. Look at this:

Telling It As It Is

Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, during a panel discussion, said he believed that the country’s education system needed to reemphasize certain principles, including teaching “the good, the bad, the ugly.”

During his live-streamed talk with the Office of Strategic Services Society on Thursday, Mattis said he believed that education in the U.S. should not gloss over uncomfortable topics, such as the effects of slavery, which still reverberate in contemporary society.

“As I look at the way American history is taught in our public schools, in many of our universities, I’m not sure how much affection I would be building in my students the way it’s being taught,” Mattis said.

“I believe in teaching the good, the bad, the ugly — and our country was born with a birth defect that we imported from the Old World — called slavery — and we’re still dealing with the after-effects of it,” he added.

Mattis’s comments come as senior U.S. military leaders have grappled with the racial inequality protests throughout the country in recent months. The protests culminated in a dramatic stand-off as National Guard forces were deployed in several states and federal troops were placed on stand-by orders in the summer.

Speaking Of Endoscopy ...

As we did previously. This & variations are all over the sidewalks of La Brea Ave. near Third St.
Has a new meaning to me, esp. as for whatever reason the croaker prefers the penetree on his/her left side. And while the procedure itself was literally painless, I did forget to mention this crap, which wasn't quite nauseating but far from appetizing,
even cold & mixed w/ ginger ale. Two separate 16-oz. applications, followed by 48 oz. of H2O w/in three hrs. of each dose. So you could bet your sweet ass it's clean. And probably sweeter than your ass, too. See?
Never let it be said that this reporter is hiding anything.

Newest Public Health Menace: Vaccination Protesting Pukes

Questions raised by this latest atrocity from the wilfully ignorant: Are there no laws? Where was the L.A.P.D.? Mere "dozens" of brain-washed thugs vs. hundreds seeking vaccination? Why'd the Fire Dep't. give up so easily?

Dodger Stadium’s mass COVID-19 vaccination site was shut down Saturday afternoon as dozens of protesters gathered at the entrance, stalling hundreds of motorists who had been waiting in line for hours.

The Los Angeles Fire Department closed the entrance to the stadium at about 2 p.m. as a precaution, officials said.

The demonstrators included members of anti-vaccine and far-right groups. While some carried signs decrying the COVID-19 vaccine and shouting for people not to get the shots, there were no incidents of violence.

“This is completely wrong,” said German Jaquez, who drove from his home in La Verne and had been waiting for an hour for his vaccination when the stadium’s gates were closed. He said some of the protesters were telling people in line that the coronavirus is not real and that the vaccination is dangerous.

“This is the wrong message,” Jaquez said. “I’ve been waiting for weeks to get an appointment. I am a dentist; I am taking a big risk being around patients. I want to be safe for my patients and for my family. The vaccine is the only way to beat the virus.”

An official said the fire department planned to reopen the vaccination site at about 3 p.m. The site, one of the largest in the country, is usually open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A post on social media described the demonstration as the “SCAMDEMIC PROTEST/MARCH.” It advised participants to “please refrain from wearing Trump/MAGA attire as we want our statement to resonate with the sheeple. No flags but informational signs only.

“This is a sharing information protest and march against everything COVID, Vaccine, PCR Tests, Lockdowns, Masks, Fauci, Gates, Newsom, China, digital tracking, etc.”

Honest to fucking Gawd, they're cheating & poisoning you sucker-ass chumps, then lying about it. All you need to know:

New Republican Mantra: "Move On"

Sounds much better from any of these outfits.
A message to you, Republicans: You ain't movin' on nowhere! 

Uh Oh. Made The Memeorandum!

Toward the bottom there. Hope I don't get in trouble for being uncivil.
Marjorie Taylor Greene indicated support for executing prominent Democrats in 2018 and 2019 before running for Congress  —  (CNN)Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians in 2018 and 2019 before being elected to Congress …

Having an invasive medical procedure, which, I just discovered, requires a plague test beforehand, meaning I must get my nose poked at a ridiculous (pre-noon) hr. before they deign to poke & prod the other end. Not to mention the osmotic laxative. 

Let's just see how angry I am after a no solid food diet. You've been warned.

Murderous Two-Faced Witch Of The Day: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

I am so fucking tired of these people (& everything else under the sun).

Rep. Gomez is this reporter's representative. Go Jimmy! Ms. Taylor Greene is the bottle-blonde representative from the bowels of Hell, apparently. No violence here, just a weapon.
Though her tenure in Congress has only lasted a few weeks, Greene is already facing calls to leave the House for her role in fanning the flames of the Capitol insurrection earlier this month after she objected to the election certification process and falsely insisted that Trump would remain president. 

After Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gomez called on Greene to be expelled from the House for her role in the insurrection, Greene condemned the violence at the Capitol and falsely accused "Antifa/BLM terrorism" and Democratic politicians of stoking the insurrection.

"I fully condemn ALL violence. The Antifa/BLM terrorism funded on ActBlue rests with Democrat accomplices like @CoriBush @Ilhan @KamalaHarris @AOC @timkaine & many more... Those who stoke insurrection & spread conspiracies have blood on their hands. They must be expelled," she tweeted.

Last week Greene faced calls to resign from the survivors of the Parkland shooting survivors after Media Matters reported she agreed with comments calling the 2018 shooting a "false flag" operation, which refers to acts that are designed by perpetrators to be made to look like they were carried out by other individuals or groups.

CNN's KFile found additional comments from Greene where she called David Hogg, a survivor and activist, "#littleHitler" and spread a conspiracy that he was a "bought and paid little pawn" and actor. 

Before she ran for Congress in 2020, Greene created a White House petition in January 2019 to impeach the House speaker for "crimes of treason," citing Pelosi's support of so-called sanctuary policies that "are serving illegals and not United States citizens" and because Pelosi did not support Trump's border wall. 

 In one speech, promoting the petition, Greene suggested Pelosi could be executed for treason. 

 "She's a traitor to our country, she's guilty of treason," Greene says in the video, which she posted on Facebook at the time. "She took an oath to protect American citizens and uphold our laws. And she gives aid and comfort to our enemies who illegally invade our land. That's what treason is. And by our law representatives and senators can be kicked out and no longer serve in our government. And it's, uh, it's a crime punishable by death is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason."
Love the sheer gall of her condemnation of ALL violence. Let alone the accusations of treason. [Further threats.]

Not This Time

In 47ish yrs. resident in Los Angeles County this reporter, never one to shirk his civic duty or to avoid work, has served on two (civil) juries, & been called to or been on-call several other times w/o getting to stick it to the man or a large corporation. Ordinarily I'd be interested in this.
Can anybody read this?
Are they out of their ever-loving minds? No way in hell w/ the plague raging & me aged & co-morbid.

Had to effing leave the bunker thrice today, & rode four different buses. Enough exposure until spring arrives.

One expedition was for medication that must be taken more or less exactly every 24 hrs., of which I'd taken the last one last night. Could be worse: The 30 day supply (made in Colvale-Bardez, Goa, India)  for which I shelled out US$137.49 last month was only US$27.27 this month w/ Plan D.

Hank Aaron

As I saw it almost 47 yrs. ago, seated on the couch at 8497 Sunset Blvd. 'Cept in monochrome on a 12" screen.As a non-baseball fan saw Hank.
A few days before he tied the old record, I found myself in a bar — a very rare occurrence — where someone whose purchases there were making up for my abstinence and that of about ten other folks. This very loud, very drunk person was holding forth on how Mr. Aaron should "know his place." That term was only uttered about eighty times, which was a few less than the accompanying "N-word." 

Apparently, Aaron's "place" was to not play to the best of his ability…an odd position for the bombed bigot who also announced that he always bet serious money on the Braves. You'd have thought he'd have liked the concept of a Braves batter belting one over the left field fence or wherever he Aaron that one. But no. Only if that Braves batter had been a white guy. It made about as much sense as that kind of hatred ever does. 

I never saw Hank Aaron play and I know very little else about his career other than that it was long and that The Babe's wasn't the only record that got shattered. But merely based on how mad he must have made that guy in the bar when he did beat Ruth's record, I liked Mr. Henry Aaron a lot.
