We Destroy The Family!

You can't handle the truth:

Red love, for all

Family is a terrible way to satisfy our desire for love and care, according to the writer and academic Sophie Lewis. The solution? Abolish it.

Guess Which Party's "Political Elites"

Social media sharing of low-quality news sources by political elites

Abstract

Increased sharing of untrustworthy information on social media platforms is one of the main challenges of our modern information society. Because information disseminated by political elites is known to shape citizen and media discourse, it is particularly important to examine the quality of information shared by politicians. Here we show that from 2016 onward, members of the Republican party in the U.S. Congress have been increasingly sharing links to untrustworthy sources. The proportion of untrustworthy information posted by Republicans versus Democrats is diverging at an accelerating rate, and this divergence has worsened since president Biden was elected. This divergence between parties seems to be unique to the U.S. as it cannot be observed in other western democracies such as Germany and the United Kingdom, where left-right disparities are smaller and have remained largely constant.

Why don't some Euro politicos link to lies? American exceptionalism, natch: White Nationalist American Jesus has no problem w/ his people bearing false witness.

"American Way/Try To Explain
Scab Of A Nation/Driven Insane"

There are eight million stories in the naked city, & every one of them is anxious.
Emily Baumgaertner / New York Times:
Health Panel Recommends Anxiety Screening for All Adults Under 65  —  The guidance comes as Americans are coping with illness, isolation and loss from the pandemic, as well as other stressors like inflation and rising crime.  —  A panel of medical experts on Tuesday recommended …
Those 65 & over can just eat shit & die? (Yes. Why do you ask?)

I do wish the jerks who come up w/ these studies would stop acting as if people are to blame for being anxious.
There are reasons.
Title quotation:
P.S.: "Rising crime"? I haven't even started.

Everything's Made of Shit & You're All Going To Die, Part Why Bother?

And these ancient fucking clowns will talk big but do nothing.You're all rats in an over-crowded cage. If world "leaders" failed to impose mandatory sterilization on their shithole countries the minute they entered office they are part of the problem, not the solution.

Post-Natal Trash

For my natal anniversary yesterday I wasn't expecting gifts, just hoping that I'd get my ass kissed. However, while the tributes were few & far between (i.e., non-existent) the universe, or someone leaving their ap't., placed this larger, cleaner bookcase (on the left below) in my way on my daily constitutional.
Now all the literature fits, including items too large for the previous model.

Thanks, universe; the rest of you can return to the hells whence you came!

Fast Flying Mammal Found

Oh, wait: Typos can be dangerous.
A bat found at a parking lot in Fountain Valley tested positive for rabies, according to Orange County health officials.

The animal was found at around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Pickleball Court No. 1 at the Fountain Valley Tennis Center on 16400 Brookhurst St.

Given the location and circumstance, the OC Health Care Agency urged residents to be on alert and avoid contact with any bats.

“Contact with bats should be avoided and any potential bat bite should be discussed with a medical provider,” the agency said.

Today In Nausea

A tab is cleared, & some stuff on the hard drive is used.

Velveeta® is staging a comeback

New York (CNN BusinessIn 2020, something incredible happened in the dairy aisle: Velveeta® started flying off the shelves.

Sales of the processed cheese product, which food snobs love to hate, have been in decline for years. Then the pandemic hit, and suddenly stressed-out, homebound people wanted Velveeta® for their queso, fudge and extra-cheesy mac and cheese. The sudden interest in the brand presented a rare chance to reintroduce itself to new customers, and to those who hadn't bought Velveeta® in years.

"We recognized that as a great business opportunity," said Kelsey Rice, senior brand communications manager for Velveeta®.

Velveeta® wanted to make a big swing, not just to boost sales but to establish itself as part of the culture. "We think Velveeta® is an iconic brand, and it should be seen and viewed as such," she said.

To change its image, Velveeta® has had to change the way it talks about itself.

That means fewer commercials about affordable, meltable cheese, and more marketing stunts like cheese-scented nail polish and pricey Velveeta® martinis.

Cute enough name to hang in the galley, but we cannot recommend it as a Velveeta® substitute.

On Beyond Pathetic

Via memeorandum, w/ emphasis on the dum(b, as a fucking post) a perfect example of "None so blind as those who will not see, but instead invent paranoid narratives."
The "problem", apparently, is that the top secret documents cover pages are right there in plain view, & you can see the classification codes on them. To be fair in assigning blame, a sizable chunk of this substack of shit was inspired by a Turley Tweet.

The Biden DOJ Attaches Photo of 'Top Secret' Mar-a-Lago Docs — Then People Instantly Spot the Problem with It

One other problem. We note that young Kyle has fully bought into the "one weird trick" school of iNternet clickbaiting, to wit: "Then People Instantly Spot the Problem with It". Cretin. Or Russian. Anyway, once in a while you just can't resist, so I left this golden nugget, preserved for eternity here, as I suspect it may not live long there.
You cultists are so deliberately dense. Do you not remember typing "white cover sheets neatly layed [sic] on top of them"? No one can see anything that risks national security. You quote Turley, "It is curious that the DOJ would release this particular picture. The point is to state a fact that hardly needs an optical confirmation: the possession of documents with classified cover sheets", yet your opening sentence calls them "alleged 'top secret' documents". You'll all be crying "fake" & "planted" no matter the evidence. And the point of the TIME cover is that the alleged documents were in the same box as the magazine covers, not that that cover of TIME is a "veiled threat". How could it be a "threat" if Trump had it framed?

I could go on, but your minds are made up & none of you want to be confused w/ facts or logic.

On This Date: 2nd iow festival of music

So you needn't pause the video. Sat. was certainly the best line-up.

The Rage Has Become Uncontrollable

Four words: Angry loner w/ problems.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The 20-year-old who opened fire in a Bend, Oregon, supermarket, killing two before he turned the gun on himself, was a loner who was passionate about mixed martial arts and was known for getting into fights at the high school where he graduated in 2020.

The shooter, identified Monday by police as Ethan Blair Miller, of Bend, “tried to fight quite literally everybody” at Mountain View High School, former classmate Isaac Thomas told The Associated Press. Thomas said the gunman once threatened to shoot him after a fight at their school.

Police confirmed Monday they are investigating the “shooter’s writings” but declined to comment further on postings on several online platforms that appear to have been written by him in recent months.

In posts on several sites, someone who appears to be the gunman says he’s struggled to recover from the isolation and loneliness of the pandemic, expresses hatred for himself and indicates he planned to attack his alma mater next week, but couldn’t wait until then because “the Rage has become uncontrollable.”

[...]

The gunman lived in an apartment complex behind The Forum Shopping Center. Witnesses said he began shooting Sunday evening as soon as he left the complex and continued firing as he entered the shopping complex’s parking lot and then went into the Safeway.

Bennett was killed at the store’s entrance, police said, and the shooter then moved through the aisles “spraying shots” from the assault rifle until Surrett confronted him. The entire incident — from the first 911 calls to officers discovering the suspect dead in the store — unfolded in four minutes, Miller said.

Searching uncontrollable rage results in "Intermittent Explosive Disorder".

Today's Toxic Republican Rhetoric

"Oh Larry, I'm sorry you gotta head like a potato. I really am."

Today In Sick Fucks

“On the FBI’s list of documents seized from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, item 1a is listed solely as ‘info re: President of France.’ For Trump, that has been a subject of intense — and tawdry — interest for years,” Rolling Stone reports.

“Specifically, Trump has bragged to some of his closest associates — both during and after his time in the White House — that he knew illicit details about the love life of French President Emmanuel Macron … And the former president even claimed that he learned about some of this dirt through ‘intelligence’ he had seen or been briefed on, these sources say.”

 "Tawdry". Pathetic jagoff works too. Please, riot in the streets for this sickening jerkwad.

Not This American

Jessica Dickler / CNBC:
Fewer Americans say they are living paycheck to paycheck as inflation begins to ease  — More than half of all U.S. consumers currently live paycheck to paycheck, according to a recent report.  — However, the number of Americans who say they are stretched thin has started to fall as inflation pressures ease.
Nope, this reporter is still taking it up the economic ass from greedy corporate pigs. And since he doesn't put gasoline in a car to pollute what's left of the atmosphere, in his case the greedy corporate pigs in question are Kroger & Albertsons. Be a damn shame if any houses, vacation houses, boats & the like belonging to any executives/stockholders of those corporate entities were to disappear from the earth, wouldn't it? Let justice be done!!
