Sure Happy It’s Larry here in Happy Thursdayville, GN!

Criminy:

Two women who were shot at during the Los Angeles Police Department’s frantic search for alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner last month say city officials have failed to adequately atone for their mistake, according to their attorney Glen Jonas.

No shite, Sherlock.

“LAPD and Galpin Ford wanted [the women] to pose for a photo opportunity and pay income tax on the truck,” the NBC report reads, citing Jonas. “The women no longer want the truck after they were told they needed to fill out a 1099 form for the donation.”

For those of you who don’t know that a 1099 form is, it’s for tax form for “miscellaneous income.”

“You tried to murder the woman, now you’re telling her she can’t have a four-wheel drive, you’re telling her she can’t sell it and you’ve got to be taxed on it?” Jonas said. “How would anyone react to that?”

According to Galpin Ford, the new 2013 Ford 150 SuperCrew is worth about $32,500. Also, according to a dealership spokesperson, Galpin Ford planned on covering the cost of sales tax, vehicle registration, and title.

I’d bet they were going to get 1099ed for the list price, too.

“It’s really sad for us because we want to help these women move on with their lives, and help them move forward with that, we just can’t get past the 1099 issue,” LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said. “The government has to take their bite out of it, I guess.”

No, Andy…what’s “sad” is that the mental defectives who run your agency thought this would be an acceptable resolution to a situation caused by your clannish, panicky, ill-trained, unionized, sub-human goons opening fire on a vehicle without ascertaining who was in it.

Once again, it appears that NWA was right, at least wherein LAPD is concerned.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Teh Older and I had a nice dinner at a Vietnamese place near home. I’ve mentioned it before -- Pho King Way.

Fatwa -- I saw that report on the local news. There was also a one year restriction on selling the vehicle.

Hell, let their insurance pay to take care of their truck for now and then once their lawsuit is settled, they’ll be able to buy a 100 trucks.

The Senate Judiciary Committee just moved Feinstein’s AWB bill to the floor. Ted Cruz tho was wonderful in his opposition to it and butted heads directly with Feinstein. You Texans should be proud you got this guy up in DC.

Hope there was plenty of alum in that crow, causing him to pucker-up in a manner reminiscent of Sven’s proposed new business. 🙂

I wonder if there’s a provision in Obamacare covering anal gland expression for politicians?

Speaking of Obamacare, Mrs Sven works in the medical device industry. Her division in LA has cut headcount by 50% over the last 18 months; layoffs and 500 jobs sent to Texas. Monday, they announced mandatory furlough days, 2.5 per employee, for this month. It aint because of poor sales-it’s due to the 2.3% Obamacare tax on revenues.

Today marks the 24th year since the passing of Ed Abbey. Some quotes:

“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.”

“There is science, logic, reason; there is thought verified by experience. And then there is California.”

“Be loyal to what you love, be true to the earth, fight your enemies with passion and laughter.”

“The rifle and handgun are ‘equalizers’ — the weapons of a democracy. Tanks and bombers represent dictatorship.”

“I love America because it is a confused, chaotic mess -- and I hope we can keep it this way for at least another thousand years. The permissive society is the free society.”

“When guns are outlawed, only the Government will have guns. The Government -- and a few outlaws. If that happens, you can count me among the outlaws.”

“What is the essence of the art of writing? Part One: Have something to say. Part Two: Say it well.”

“I hate and fear violence myself, have always avoided barroom brawls, and tho’ I’m a bit of a gun-nut, and a member of the NRA, I never shoot at anything but beer cans and mule deer. (In season.) And seldom hit either, except by accident.”

“The tank, the B-52, the fighter-bomber, the state-controlled police and military are the weapons of dictatorship. The rifle is the weapon of democracy. Not for nothing was the revolver called an “equalizer.”

Tossing out the Joooooo card, eh, X? Well played.

What makes no sense to me with this AWB bill is the listing of both banned and non-banned firearms in the bill. You define an ‘assault weapon’ but then you also list specific weapons that either are or arent ‘assault weapons’. If you’ve defined them, why do you then need lists?

What it says to me is that you have a sloppy definition-why would you even put forth a bill like that?

Good on ya for playing teh Jooooo card; it amazes me that so many of the people who ought to support the 2A based upon history don’t.

Count me in as an outlaw, as well; up yours, Janet!

Today also marks the 25th anniversary of me and Mrs Sven meeting up for the ‘first’ time as we began our short stint at a defense contractor in Chatsworth. Took me about a month to work up my nerve to ask her out.

Mrs Sven hasn’t been feeling well this week-took two days off to rest up-but she’s feeling better now and so we will go out to lunch: Weber’s Place in Reseda. It use to be a great bar/lunch spot in the 80’s, then fell on hard times. We went back there about 10 years ago and it sucked out loud.

Last year, they were on some reality show, Bar Rescue, and updated the place.

I’m not excited about the changes-use to have great decor and a decent working class clientele-now, not sure what to expect, but it is the first place we went out to together. Romantic that I am and all that….

Aaah…Weber’s. I spent some time there when I lived in the West Valley during the early nineties; it was a pretty good dive bar back then. Reasonably priced drinks, decent burgers and a fairly friendly group of regulars.

Hope that you had a pleasant lunch and that Mrs. Sven’s feeling even better.

(IIRC, that place was originally owned by the same folks who owned the Oar House in Santa Monica.)

Sadly, Weber’s turned into another Zig’s experience. Despite their web site saying they open at noon, they don’t open until like 4:00. The bartender had the backdoor open while he was cleaning up and served us a beer, but no food. The place doesnt look like much anymore-lot of black paint. While we were there, another couple came in for wings-and were hugely disappointed that the kitchen wasnt open as they had driven out from Long Beach. The guy asked him if their phone was broken as he called several times-the bartender said they have the ringer turned off and no answering machine.

Anyhow, drove around the old neighborhoods and ended up for lunch at Casa de Carlos which use to be Granada’s which is where I proposed to Mrs Sven.
