Current Economic Slump II

No hope this will ever be a Denny's® again.
We've a suspicion that an office tower was planned here, as the gas station next door disappeared a couple yrs. ago & there's a subway stop across the street, but w/ the office real estate market going through post-plague adjustments, it may just become a homeless encampment.

What is wrong w/ these people? How do they get beyond the realm of fact like this?
  • Mario Murillo declares that “the Woke agenda in California has killed tens of thousands of businesses, and created a mass exodus from California. And for the first time in history, California will lose a Senate seat and a vote in the Electoral College. Many have speculated that California could turn red, if the trend continues.” For the record, California will lose a House seat due to the census; the Constitution guarantees every state two seats in the U.S. Senate.
  • Finally, Michele Bachmann complains that critical race theory promotes division because it doesn’t teach that “600,000 people voluntarily gave their lives to extinguish slavery forever in the United States.” Does Bachmann not realize that approximately half of those who died were trying to preserve slavery?

The "Mob", Per The Federalist

Does anyone know what this dumb cluck is squawking about? The only "mob" that's tried to "cancel" anything in this country is the collection of sucker-ass chumps, losers, idiots, vicious thugs & Trump-loving racists who stormed the Capitol on 6 January of this yr. attempting to cancel the Presdidential election. Maybe Jordan managed to forget.

Who Most Deserves To Be Stomped By An Elephant? Wayne LaPierre

Attempted murder:
Mike Spies / New Yorker:
The Secret Footage of N.R.A. Chief Wayne LaPierre's Botched Elephant Hunt  —  The chief executive has cultivated his image as an exemplar of American gun culture, but video of his clumsy marksmanship—and details regarding his Rodeo Drive shopping trips—tells another story. 


LaPierre’s life style, as described in the deposition, is a stark contrast from the Americans the N.R.A. claims to represent. Lawyers pressed LaPierre about nearly three hundred thousand dollars in payments that Ackerman McQueen made to Ermenegildo Zegna, a luxury men’s fashion retailer on Rodeo Drive, in Beverly Hills, to dress LaPierre between 2004 and 2017. According to an N.R.A. ad, the group’s coalition includes “steelworkers,” “cowboys,” “hard-rock miners,” “swamp folks in Cajun country who can wrestle a full-grown gator out of the water,” “the mountain men who live off the land,” and “the brave cops who fight the good fight in the urban war zones.”
Lying, posing grifter w/ a guaranteed army of sucker-ass chumps. Nice work if you can get it.

How Dare You?

A broad emergency alert went out shortly after 12:30 p.m., but fire officials say it was sent to a wider audience than the immediate evacuation area.
No shit. Downey's about 12 miles from me, you stupid irritating bastards, but your damn alert woke me the fuck up. If I could find out who is responsible, I'd slit his or her throat. Just where do you get off waking my ass up & scaring me like that, you fucking pieces of shit? Fuck you all in the mouth, & I hope the gas leak killed a lot of people.

On Your Knees, Democrats!!

Chris Dunker / Omaha World-Herald:
Lawmakers blast North Platte Sen. Groene for ‘racist’ comments during debate  —  A handful of state lawmakers criticized Sen. Mike Groene on Thursday for what they said was an offensive comment made by the North Platte senator on Wednesday.  —  During floor debate, Groene inadvertently called Sen. Mike Flood of Norfolk, owner of a broadcasting company, a “media Mongol,” instead of a “media mogul.” 

Brought to his attention later, Groene said of Flood: “I think he’s got mixed heritage, so that qualifies him as a ... mongrel and he’s aggressive so that does qualify him sometimes as a Mongol.” 

On Thursday, Lincoln Sen. Matt Hansen said Groene’s comments had prompted several “deeply offended and deeply impacted” constituents in his northeast Lincoln district to contact his office and ask him to address it on the floor.
And from the "Uh-Mur-Ka: Love It Or Shove It" chorus, the usual whining about The Truth That Must Be Denied.

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.

On More Positive Notes ...

Have most people who wanted it been jabbed already?Perhaps not; however, "increased media coverage overnight" jacked up demand, & they've stopped accepting unscheduled walk-ups.

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:
so it'd been sitting at the door for an hr. & a half. Srsly, FedEx, would it fucking kill you to knock before you run away?
