Spooky Science Sunday

Leave Marie Antoinette alone!

Marie Antoinette's Adultery Unmasked by Modern Science

Lock. Her. Up!

And Throw Away The Key

Ryan J. Reilly / HuffPost:
Jan. 6 ‘Influencer’ Who Said She's ‘Definitely Not Going To Jail’ Should Go To Jail, Feds Say  —  Jenna Ryan, a Trump-loving real estate broker, called Jan. 6 “one of the best days of my life” and bragged that she wouldn't go to jail because she's white.
Do we still sentence people to hard labor? We should. Making spoiled bottle-blond pukes like this do farm labor from dawn-to-dark daily for their own subsistence would be a start. No work, no food. And don't let her have any hair coloring while she's locked up.

Rule of thumb: Those who call themselves "influencers" (& real estate agents as well) should be tied in a bag, beaten w/ staves & thrown into a suburban swimming pool. Start killing the aristocrats, nothing. We have to start killing all the assholes, before it's too damn late!

Back To Boise: Monday's Mall Murderer Was A Far-Right Extremist

W/ the assistance of the AP, we covered Monday's Mass Murder. Here's an interesting but not unexpected development.
And more from the AP.

Lying Liars & The Lies They Tell

Blow me, Bill Maher. And fuck you, Fox News.
Cut out their lying tongues & break their lying typing fingers.

I mean, Bill fucking Maher wears a useless fucking rag* around his useless fucking pencil-neck because of imagined horseshit concerning "respect" for his viewers ("You're in their living room, Bill.") when he's on telebision. Why is sporting a "diaper" over his ugly mouth & nose for an actual protective purpose such a big deal? It's as if he's both a cretin & mentally ill. Or just a fucking asshole.
*Be funny to have a little neck-tie party for ol' Bill, wouldn't it? Strangle his lying two-faced ass w/ that phony tie.

In Which I Call BULLSHIT!!

Every fake news & real lies site is on this. Am I the only one who can see through the horseshit? Sickening.
Fuck every one of these shitheels in their lying paranoid mouths.

Today's Fakest News: ISIS To Attack Temples Of Commodity Fetishism

Don't Believe the Hype

Anyone find it interesting that this alleged threat is revealed the wknd. before the Virginia election? (Or that the "threat" is against malls rather than churches/synagogues? Someone, ISIS, or whoever in national security made it up, knows where America's heart really is.)
Megan Cloherty / WTOP:
If there actually is an attack on the malls I guarantee you it will be a false flag operation, probably perpetrated by the same police dep'ts./National Security Nazis that spread these rumours to the sucker-ass chumps of WTOP & CBS News. Fuck the plice & the media. And burn the malls. Shop locally at locally businesses. If you can find any.

Friday Comedy Music Freak Out

Jeezus Gawd, Izzit Effin' Friday Yet?

Unsure why the day of the wk. makes any actual difference to unemployed (& unemployable, ha ha ha) me. Hell, wknds. as the squares know them haven't meant beans to me since I was reduced to retail wage-slavery a quarter-century ago, in the previous millennium. 

And now I'm reduced to doing crap like this for nothing. W/ two still to go. Maybe I'm expressing solidarity w/ any wage-slaves left out there. Take a page from the Bouffant book; tell your bosses to fuck right off & die & then get a county croaker to declare you a total fucking loon. (It's right there in the DSM.) You'll be on the free money gravy train before you know it.

Presidential Penis Proportions

Between diabetes, age, existential numbness & boredom & utter contempt for the species that surrounds me (misanthropy, not mere misogyny, ladies) I'm on a higher plane (That is so high I can't explain.) as far as the S-E-X goes, but no sooner had I left a comment on the Bastard's Biden boner item linking to a previous penis item here than this popped up appeared in the news feed.


Get your minds out of the gutter, Republicans! You've been forcing this kind of thing down our throats since all the squawking about former Pres. Clinton's personal life.

Just Another "Antifa" False Flag Crisis Actor, Or Something ...

Violent convicted felon thugs like this MAGA maggot live among you:
A 50-year-old felon facing charges of attacking two people at a “Stop the Steal” rally and counterprotest outside Santa Ana College last year is now charged with participating in attempts to breach the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection, according to court records obtained Wednesday.

Kim Michael Sorgente was named in a complaint Oct. 21 in federal court in Washington, D.C., charging him with civil disorder and being in a restricted building or grounds. The federal investigation began March 15, just two days before he was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon related to the Dec. 6 protest at 17th and Bristol streets in Santa Ana, according to court records.

Sorgente is charged with two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon in the Santa Ana protest case. He is accused of attacking two people with a megaphone, according to the criminal complaint.


Sorgente was convicted of carjacking May 7, 1996, in San Bernardino County Superior Court, according to court records.


Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley released a statement Wednesday saying Sorgente is an “active anti-mask and anti-vaccine movement organizer in Orange County.”

Foley said he is a “dangerous individual,” who protested outside of her house when she was Costa Mesa mayor.

“He again joined others to protest at my home earlier this year and verbally harassed my family, interrupted my remarks at an event in Huntington Beach to remember the victims of the 9/11 tragedy, which required a police escort to my vehicle to safely leave the event, and most recently attempted to disrupt an event related to the oil spill” that was held in Laguna Beach, Foley said.

This seditious s.o.b. is an obvious danger to society. Lock him up & throw away the key.

Good Ol' Rape U. Whips It Out

Jesus Fucking Christ. They are who they tell us they are. Dare we suggest the torch?
“Liberty University’s new president, Jerry Prevo, told a top university official this year that he wanted the large Christian school to become a more effective political player with the goal of helping to influence elections,” Politico reports.

“The comments by Prevo, a Liberty trustee who took over as president following the resignation last year of Jerry Falwell Jr., raise new questions about the blurred line between education and politics at the university, which as a 501(c)(3) charity is not supposed to participate directly in political campaigns.”

Said Prevo: “I have a 50c3 church. For 30 years, I’ve known how to handle that and not get into trouble. The homosexual community has tried to take me down for at least 30 years, and they have not been successful because I know how to work the 50c3.”

Funny, we hear the rapist community has been backing you for at least 30 yrs.

Round-Up Cont'd.

Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope and throw and brand 'em
Soon we'll be living high and wide.

Real World Horror For Hallowe'en

Witches Sabbath of intellectual scum to convene on Hallowe'en:
Today, the conservative intellectuals who first came together in defense of Trumpism and under the banner of National Conservatism are preparing the ideological terrain for a post-liberal America. Not to take them seriously betrays a historical naïveté and a fetishization of the intellect—as if intelligence has never walked alongside moral and political horror—as well as a dreadful overconfidence in the immediate appeal of the liberal democratic worldview.
Laura Field / New Republic:
Pro-Trump Professors Are Plotting an Authoritarian Comeback  —  On Halloween, the second National Conservatism conference, or NatCon II, will kick off in Orlando, Florida.  It is hard to know quite what to make of the lineup for the three-day fest, which boasts a few household names …
Adam Ellwanger / The American Mind:   Preparing the Way Ahead  — In the summer of 2019, just a few months before the onset of the pandemic, a few dozen right-leaning intellectuals met in Washington, D.C. They came together because they shared a feeling that America was at a dangerous impasse—one in which liberal ideology, approaching its sociocultural endgame, threatened to destroy the traditions and conceptual foundations of western democracies. This conference, dubbed “National Conservatism,” made news across the world. Organized by the Edmund Burke Foundation, the conference is now viewed by some as the beginning of the intellectual effort to galvanize a new coalition of political tribes that might be equipped to resist the looming threats to western life—both at home and abroad.
Whoa there, cowpoke. Who exactly is threatening "to destroy the traditions and conceptual foundations of western democracies"? Sissy liberals? Or the kind of shitheel who wants "western democracy" to mean oligarchy, rule by the elites, a limited franchise & so on? These vast intellects are living in Bizarro World, & the AT&T/Warner Bros./DC Comics industrial complex should evict them directly to lunatic asylums.

Why "western" democracies? Perhaps western ones are special simply because they're, you know, "western", which, I must suspect, means "whiteEuropean" to Ellwanger. Not unlike current white Xian paradise Hungary.

Shouldn't this ambulatory piece of furniture & his "Mother" been "canceled" some time ago?
Tom LoBianco / Vanity Fair:
“He's Making Real Money for the First Time in His Life”: Mike Pence Is Already Cashing In on His Potential 2024 Run  —  The former veep and his wife are living their best lives: traveling widely, making bank on the speaking circuit, and residing in one of Indiana's toniest suburbs.
Just as their hero Jesus lived. Modest, cloth-coat Republicans. Hah! Not hard to imagine "Mother" asking, "Miiiike, why don't we ever have any money?" over & over, is it?And who is fool enough to pay a legalized bribe to any one-term Vice-President, let alone a bribe that involves listening to such a world-renowned dullard & stiff? People hedging their bets on the possibility Trump will be mouldering in his grave/prison by 2024? (S'pose he could run from prison. Electing a convicted seditionist & tax-evading crook really would own the libs, wouldn't it? "Vote The Crook In!" would be quite a switcheroo.)

Can't Get A Job, Can't Get A Job

The bosses are lying again.
  • Businesses across the US say they are struggling to find employees, especially for hourly work.
  • Joey Holz decided to test their claims, submitting two applications a day in September.
  • Holz got one interview, and his summary of the experiment went viral on multiple platforms.
Joey Holz recalled first hearing complaints about a labor shortage last year when he called to donate convalescent plasma at a clinic near Fort Myers, Florida.

"The guy went on this rant about how he can't find help and he can't keep anybody in his medical facility because they all quit over the stimulus checks," Holz told Insider. "And I'm like, 'Your medical professionals quit over $1,200 checks? That's weird.'"


Holz isn't alone. Others have also spoken out about their troubles finding work, despite the seemingly tight labor market.

In a Facebook post on September 29, which went viral on Twitter and Reddit as well, Holz said, "58 applications says y'all aren't desperate for workers, you just miss your slaves."

It is the firm editorial position of this web-log that all bosses should have their lying tongues cut from their lying mouths. Let's see the useless pricks give orders w/o tongues.

How Many Strangers Did Typhoid Prager Murder W/ His Hugging?

Justin Rohrlich / The Daily Beast:
Dennis Prager Announces He Has COVID After Hugging ‘Thousands’ to Get It  —  The right-wing personality offered dangerous advice to his audience about achieving natural immunity, which can kill a person in the process.  —  Right-wing personality and talk radio host Dennis Prager, who once “proved” COVID was nothing to worry about by describing his habit of eating with dirty utensils in restaurants, has now contracted COVID.

But, this wasn’t a bad thing, Prager insisted. In fact, getting sick with the virus was his plan all along, he announced Monday during his show, which streams daily on YouTube.

“It is infinitely preferable to have natural immunity than vaccine immunity and that is what I have hoped for the entire time,” Prager told listeners from his home, where he is quarantining. “Hence... I have engaged with strangers, constantly hugging them, taking photos with them knowing that I was making myself very susceptible to getting COVID… [It is] what I wanted, in the hope I would achieve natural immunity and be taken care of by therapeutics. That is exactly what has happened.”
Hey Carlos Garcia, turn green & die, O.K.?

Life & Death In The Southland:
If It Bleeds ...

You people are sick. Sick sick sick!!!
Spotted while checking this out:
Dozens of parents, teachers and some children took part in a series of protests outside various Southland school campuses as part of a statewide “sit-out” or “walk-out” effort to denounce a mandate requiring all K-12 students in California to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Outside Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, protesters marched along the sidewalk outside the school, carrying signs reading “My Body, My Choice,” “Our kids are not lab rats” and “Stop the mandate LAUSD.” A young student held a sign saying “Don’t kick me out of my school.”

Key word? DOZENS. Dozens & dozens. In a county estimated to have 9,969,510 humanoids. Dozens, do you hear me? DOZENS!!

Stop Pretending!!

Shut your whining mouths about losing your alleged democracy & your anti-democratic Constitution. No nation w/ a Senate, a filibuster & an Electoral College has any claim to being a democracy, or even a democratic republic, yet none of you idiots noticed until about a yr. ago? Anyone w/ even a vague comprehension of what words mean knew this long ago, & the election of 2000 should have made it frighteningly clear to anyone whose head wasn't permanently lodged in their ass. Which, of course, lets most of the planet out. 

Few gave a shit then, & for all the yakking no one's doing a damn thing now. Lying hypocrites & chicken-shit assholes, every one. Except those who are so bestially stupid & ignorant they can't handle enough information to be hypocrites.

Indeed, is there another nation on the face of this planet that has an Electoral College or a filibuster? What is this bullshit? Stop it, you fucking cretins!!!

Speaking Ill Of The Dead:
Fuck Colin Powell

Usually when a piece of shit dies they've been off the radar for a while & we weren't piling on them. So when they hit the news again, it's only right to remind the ignorant masses of what pieces of shit the dead were while alive. 

We mean you, war-mongering & My Lai massacre-covering-up corpse Colin Powell.

How The Automobile, Fossil Fuel & Prohibition Fueled Fascism

More on why everything sucks.
Traffic stops are by far the most common reason that police officers initiate contact with members of the public; they account for 84 percent of encounters, according to data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics. In fact, before cars, ordinary citizens rarely came in contact with law enforcement. As we rebuilt cities around the automobile, historians contend, drivers came to expect to be policed. And communities of color have paid the highest price.


... a new threat was emerging on American streets. America’s first drivers––overwhelmingly well-to-do white men––were wreaking havoc, refusing to slow down for horses or pedestrians. Ordinary citizens were endangering one another’s lives, and police time was more and more pulled to the roadside.

“Cars profoundly altered the relationship between citizens and the police,” the legal historian Sarah Seo wrote in her 2019 book, Policing the Open Road. “Because so many people drove, a vast and mostly ‘law-abiding’ population suddenly became subject to policing.”

City governments, once reluctant to invest in law enforcement, changed course as cars were widely adopted in the 1910s. Suddenly, Vollmer’s dream of an entirely “motor-mounted” force no longer felt far-fetched. In 1925, traffic violations entered the criminal code. Fines and citations soon buttressed department budgets––funding more police on the ground, with more guns, and more cars to police other cars.

In 1925’s Carroll v. United States, the Supreme Court ruled that the police could search automobiles—unlike homes and offices––without a warrant. This Prohibition-era “vehicle exception,” passed to counter an uptick in alcohol smuggling, gouged a hole in citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights. Suddenly, law enforcement had unprecedented entry into our private lives––all an officer needed was a missing license plate or a broken taillight.

Thus was born the pretextual stop.

Read it all, then go out & at least let the air out of someone's tires. Y'know, today's plasticmobiles burn pretty easily too. Hints.

Friday Fogger Fun Facts

Stuff that seems to have worked in the natural world Forever War, fingers crossed:
Saw no dead bedbugs, but there was a dead roach in the bathroom sink post-fogging. Have not seen or felt any chinches de cama since, however.

Didn't seem to work:
Granted, only for use on mattress seams, bedframes & the walls. Gave it one try, then went to the HOT SHOT®.

When the little bastards visited eight or nine yrs. ago the landlord sent Stanley Pest Control, which sent two people; one w/ a full-on gas mask & a hand-pumped spray tank, & an "inspector", who had to spot a live bug before authorizing spraying. So a good deal that something not requiring authorization & available at Target® worked, & I didn't have to deal w/ that other parasite, the landlord.

And I have two cans I may not need that might be used for other purposes.
Just sayin' ...

Apparently these guys are in short supply, the truck driving schools having closed during the worst of the plague.
Per an NHK tourism program on cute Japanese railroads, there was a shortage of truckers in Nippon even pre-plague, due to the population aging, which has led Japan Rail to run more freight trains.

Bay Area Blues

A new Joint Venture Silicon Valley poll finds that 55% of the residents living in the San Francisco Bay Area say they are considering moving out of the area permanently.

Of those who were likely to leave, 84% cited the cost of living as a major reason and 62% cited the quality of life.

Gee, I'd guess that if the Bay Area were to lose over half its population it'd once again be the wonderful place it was before all the whiny out-of-state carpetbaggers invaded in search of tech fortunes. Fuck you, whichever stupid generation you interloping bastards are part of.

And wherever you decide to go, don't any of you sick San Francisco fucks even think of moving south. We're full. Try Idaho, aggrieved honkies. See how you like shit there, quitters.

Yuck foo, Walgreens. "Cost of doing business." Gotta love the young free market entrepreneurs riding through the store on bicycles helping themselves. So much for your temples of commodity fetishism, pigs.
Jesse O'Neill / New York Post:
Walgreens closes five more San Francisco locations, citing ‘organized retail crime’  —  Walgreens is closing five more San Francisco locations as drug stores from the Bay Area to the Big Apple are besieged by rampant shoplifting and lax enforcement.  —  San Fran shoplifters have been emboldened … 
Eli Rosenberg / Washington Post:
A record number of workers are quitting their jobs, empowered by new leverage  —  4.3 million people quit their jobs in August, nearly 3 percent of the workforce.  —  The number of people quitting their jobs has surged to record highs, pushed by a combination of factors …
Dunno what the deal is on memeorandum's algorithim, but it's interesting that the reaction to the mainstream media reports is from the usual right-wing fake news outlets, w/ the exception of Brother Loomis at that Warren Zevon fan site. 

Does this sort of talk make the bosses nervous? Would a nationwide general strike make them really nervous? Let's say the wk. between Xmas & New Year's sweet fucking nobody goes to work, or slaves from home. What'll they do, fire you? They can't get "help" as is. 

Especially retail. The only "organized retail crime" is the crummy wages these glibertarian fuckwads so grudgingly pay. Fuck you, bossman!

Darby Was Right!

Someone had to type it.
There is no God. An individual who believes in a God that actively intervenes in earthly events, keeps an eye on him personally, and listens and responds to his prayers is mistaken. He doesn’t understand basic facts about the world and the provenance of the phone from which he sends text messages, the car that he drives, the antibiotic that cures his bronchitis and the electricity that brightens his home.

Belief in such a God is such an ignorant mistake that there’s something mentally disturbed about it. There’s no dispute at all over whether such a God who created the universe exists. There’s no need to assume his existence in order to explain the world, and there’s no objective evidence of his existence.

Such a God can, of course, exist within a personal and subjective mystical experience, but you can’t establish a religion based on personal and subjective experiences. In a religion, the existence of God is objective.

Shlomo Avineri argues that “secular intellectuals” who think that “anyone who believes in God and religion is stupid and benighted” commit the sin of arrogance. They do not. Under liberal and enlightened moral standards regarding human rights, orthodox religion is indeed benighted. And anyone who insists on believing in the existence of a God contrary to heaps of evidence that debunks this is indeed behaving stupidly.

Since when is adhering to a proved truth arrogance? Avineri’s statement is fashionable kowtowing to the wave that’s making the country more religious. It’s not arrogance to say that someone who believes that two plus two equals five is stupid.

How can one accuse of arrogance those who fight against the metaphysical foolishness of religion and the moral injustice it entails? It’s the religious who lord it over the atheists and claim exclusive ownership of spirituality, values and belief.

Avineri holds that God and his ordinances aren’t the main thing in religion. Rather, he says, “many of those who cling to religion (in Israel and elsewhere) do this not because they are certain about the correctness of the theological and metaphysical arguments concerning divinity,” but rather because they need “a concrete framework for their self-identity and sense of security as human beings.” This, he says, is the social power of religion: “It’s above all a focus of identity.”

This position is of course the ultimate in arrogance. He prefers not to relate seriously to beliefs and opinions to which many people who cling to religion will swear, or to take seriously the unconscious needs they don’t know they have and which he decries. He describes these people as weak; people devoid of confidence.

No doubt there are sociological reasons for religion. Secularism also has sociological reasons, of course. The exchange of opinions in Haaretz has sociological reasons. Avineri has published an article in Haaretz in part because the publication provides him a framework for his self-identity and because for him Haaretz is a focus of identity.

But this doesn’t mean that it’s right to identify with his social or psychological motives. We still have to confront his arguments on their merits; it would be arrogant to dismiss them contemptuously as stemming from his psychosocial needs.

We also have to confront orthodox religion with conviction and determination, without the political correctness that emerges from Avineri’s approach. Why should anyone fake hypocritical tolerance and empathy toward a religion that in its essence is against tolerance? We have to speak the truth and stop trying to curry favor. There is no God and belief in him is stupidity.

Even the cretin being refuted admits it's all bullshit: "... because they need 'a concrete framework for their self-identity and sense of security as human beings.' This, he says, is the social power of religion: 'It’s above all a focus of identity.'" At least get your "identities" from something vaguely real, you brain-dead robot cretin sheep.
