Republican Trifecta: Jesus Guns Babies

Also, Cold-Blooded Murder

I'm sure if one of his children had been packing everything would be just fine. Or if the Zombie Jesus had shown up to stop it, but as usual, He chickened out again.

Five dead, including three children, in Sacramento County church shooting

A man killed four people, including three of his children, before turning the gun on himself inside a church in the Sacramento suburbs on Monday evening, authorities said.

The explosion of gunfire took place at the Church in Sacramento, on Wyda Way east of Sacramento, shortly after 5 p.m., said Sgt. Rodney Grassmann, a spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.

The shooter took his own life, Grassmann said. It was not immediately clear who the fifth victim was, and Grassmann did not immediately identify any of the victims.

Police said there was no longer an active threat in the area.

The church had not been holding active gatherings because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to its website. Attempts to contact church officials were not immediately successful.

Bite, chew, eat, blow, etc. N.O. Pelicans 123, L.A. Losers 95. Boos heard at The Crypto-Crypt.

“I personally think he’s unhinged. I worry about his acuity and balance.”

*Don't get it; surely most ad agency music directors or whatever are in their 20s or 30s, not aging wretches such as I who remember when such a fast & throbbing number was something to look forward to on the radio.

Too long for Bugger to embed, had to go to YouTube & go through that rigamarole. Imposition after idiotic imposition; how I suffer for my art! Your turn to suffer now.

Hook & Ladder

No idea what this was about. False alarm? Wondering if there was a camera on the end of the ladder; certainly wasn't a human. Several pieces of F.D. gear arrived, blocking eastbound traffic on Third, but didn't stick around (possibly because the street was already filled w/ apparatus) as this was going on.

Two legislators in the state’s Capital Projects and Bond Oversight Committee have apologized after using anti-Semitic language when commenting on a state lease agreement on Tuesday.

Rep. Walker Thomas, R-Hopkinsville, and committee chairman Sen. Rick Girdler, R-Somerset, both used the phrase “Jew them down” in reference to bargaining for a lower price on a lease.

America Continues Eating Its Young

The Atlantic published 10X more articles lamenting school Covid protocols than it did on the sunsetting of a Tax Credit that threw 3.7M children back into poverty.

Despite their constant consternation over covid protocols and their effects on "the children", The Atlantic has a limited framework for what harms to children matter.

Hypocritical pigs who couldn't possibly care any less about anyone who isn't a white middle-class suburbanite having a fit because their children couldn't be warehoused for them a while.

Driving On Sunset

Cahuenga Blvd. to almost Queens Rd. in less than 11 mins., 1952-stylee. Could it be done today?The stretch between (4:21) & (7:35) was once described in an L.A. Times restaurant review as "the no-man's land between La Brea & Fairfax". This reporter lived half-a-block south (to the viewer's right) on Martel Ave. (5:32), 1974-1985. That Safeway was not there, & most of the car lots & gas stations in the film were history by 1973. Did see quite a few flicks at the Oriental in the next block, but it eventually was absorbed by the Guitar Center. Just past the Oriental is the Sunset Grill.

The colorization is interesting. Much more precise than that smeary crap Ted Turner gave us, but can't seem to keep the cars from shimmering.Audible audio.

Fake News Round-Up

Hippie-Dippie New Age Bullshit Artist Marianne Williamson Sez Whut?

Joseph Wulfsohn / Fox News:
Marianne Williamson calls out AOC's ‘bullshit’ for dodging question on whether Pelosi should lead Dem caucus  —  The former Dem presidential candidate accused the ‘Squad’ member of ‘doublespeak’  —  AOC's GOP challenger proposes federal death penalty for convicted cop killers
"Former Dem presidential candidate". Yeah, she came in a close second at the convention & we were all surprised Biden didn't want her to be his vice-president. No, wait ... "Marianne Williamson is a former Democratic candidate for president of the United States in 2020. She ended her campaign on January 10, 2020." Eff you right in the mouth, Joseph Wulfsohn.

The Fright-fart item is grasping at straws. What do they expect her to say?

And what can this reporter or anyone sane say about "federal death penalty for convicted cop killers"? Let's see some numbers. How many ossifers are murdered in the line of duty in comparison w/ people killed by police each yr.? Bet even the number of unarmed people killed by the heat is significantly less. "AOC's GOP challenger", however, knows the real problem.

Was this planned by the same clowns who redid the uniforms? Are they unaware of, like, light & stuff, man?

Editorial From An Alternate Earth,
By The Financial Times

Joe Biden must confront the left's cultural over-reach  —  Many liberal Americans too worry about the excesses of progressive activism  —  Last month, Bill Maher, a pot-smoking bachelor and no one's idea of a traditionalist, used his HBO talk show to attack America's political left.
Could we worry a bit about the fascist right's political over-reach, to wit, sedition, insurrection, fraud, voter & voting suppression, allowing state legislatures to decide whose votes are counted, yada, rather than distracting the rubes w/ culture war clichés?

(Oh, right. It's the F.T. They want the sheep distracted from economic & political truth. Knowing that makes all this an exercise in futility. Why bother, to coin a phrase.)

And perhaps there could be a call for more than two or three elected Republicans to condemn that over-reach & referring to 6 January 2021 at the Capitol as "legitimate political discourse", rather than calling on Biden to do something about whatever in hell "cultural over-reach" is. A damn shame we couldn't read some examples, as if anything beyond the alternate-reality headline were needed to generate yucks.
Nonetheless, the headline's silliness is confirmed in the selection above from memeorandim, via the newsreader. The ancient by iNternet standards "Even the liberal Bill Maher" schtick. Sweet blood of Jesus, a pot-smoking bachelor* attacked the left? Will the F.T. soon breathlessly advise us that a dog has bitten a man?

As far as "cultural activism", I must wonder if the F.T. chanced to mention actual book banning by rightist-dominated gov't. agencies & legislatures & private party religious-based (only one so far) book burning? Or the armed intimidation that's becoming more popular on the right?
*Th' hell? Would it be worth mentioning if a booze-swilling guy who had two or three marriages & abandoned families under his belt opened his big yap? Hey, y'know who else is a bachelor & has attacked America's political left? Lindsey Graham, for one. Drug-abuser & long-time bachelor who literally declared war on America? Adolf Hitler.

Your Flight Has Been "Cancelled"

Actual & more than deserved cancellation, should the current chicken-booty admin. tell the T.S.A. to wise up & deal w/ the actual, domestic threat to national security rather than worry about shampoo bottles & the soles of our shoes.
Kelly Yamanouchi / Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Delta asks Justice Dept. to put unruly passengers on national no-fly list  —  Delta Air Lines is asking the U.S. Justice Department to create a national no-fly list of passengers who have been convicted for on-board disruptions.  —  Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta, wrote a letter …
Nothing will happen until a freedumb loving American manages to bring down a 'plane. If then. America is reactionary in every sense of the word.
