Teh Squeaky Wheel
Nice thread vid, Mac. Mrs Sven will appreciate.
Good morning and happy f*cking Monday! I iz still sick and will stay home today so as not to contaminate the rest of the hard working folks at that place I work at. I’m considerate that way.
Good thoughts and a few prayers off to Jerry. And to Rabbit too for being such a good gerbil. And to Tex as she deals with the crap she has to deal with. And to Mac and Elena, Paddy, Minteh, Fatwa and Brenda and everybody else too. So there.
Over at Hot Air, they noted that Mayor Giuliani is on trouble (on the Internet. On no!) for inarticulate or insensitive or racist race phrasing during a Sunday talk show appearance. I wouldnt worry about it; if you are a white male no matter what you say about race relations, unless you toe the liberal party line, you are going to get hammered for it. Racist haters…
Gaaaaaaaaaah!reetings from Happy -- and warmer -- Larryville, GN!
Our internetz just came back; they’ve been out since before 07.00 local time. Resser-fresser Charter Intermittent Communications.
Hai, Sven! Sorry you’re still feeling carpy; staying home is very considerate of you.
Excellent thread GIF, Mac; I suspect HoneyLambK will appreciate it every bit as much as Mrs. Sven.
Got nothin’ else as I haven’t read any news yet. But I’m just sure there’ll be glad tidings…
Is there any woman in America that wasnt drugged and raped by Bill Cosby?
Um, Janet Napolitano and Bella Abzug?
When I saw this in the “Recent Comments” section, I thought Fatwa was identifying the creature in the thread gif.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Sven and Fatwa!
Sven -- sorry you’re still feeling so carpy -- are you sure you don’t want to share it with management?
Prayers for Jerry and his battles with ‘revenge of the sun’.
A friend posted a bit of click-bait on Facebook that purported to show “How one teacher taught her class about privilege”. The teacher places a trash can at the front of the room and tells the students they are to stay in their seats and toss a piece of paper into the trash can. It’s obviously easier for those in the front to succeed than those in the back. One of the first comments was “Now watch all the straight, white, males complain about how inaccurate this is.” There you have it -- present day leftist political discourse. Let’s preemptively shut down any contrary views while pretending to engage in a dialogue.
I see that Ken Takakura has died. I am sad to see this. I have enjoyed his work since seeing The Yakuza 1974 with Robert Mitchum. It is still high on my list of favorites. It is not a great movie but different and interesting with intriguing performances and characters. He reminds me of Jean Reno in The Professional, one of my favorite movies.
I don’t think I’ve seen The Yakuza with Mitchum. The Professionals though is a really good movie.
The Professionals was a different movie. The Professional was a movie about a hit man who takes care of a 12 year old girl (Natalie Portman) when her family is killed by rogue DEA agents.
I see it’s now called Leon: The Professional A great movie with several fine performances by the leads and by supporting characters.
Got it--that was a good one too.
Apparently there will be an announcement today from the Grand Jury in Ferguson. Hopefully, based on the evidence released so far, they’ll come back with no charges filed. However, with all the pressure put on them, I wouldnt be surprised if some charges are filed against Darren Wilson.
1. Gas prices out here have dropped below $3.00 a gallon for the first time in I don’t know how many years. Never thought I’d see them this low again.
2. With all the news about about flood dangers from from melting snow in NY, I wondered how much water a foot snow equated to. Apparently, there’s a 10:1 ratio of snow to water, so a foot of snow is a bit more than an inch of water.
More miscellaneous stuff from Hot Air:
“Earlier this month, Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-Burlington) introduced the bill (A3908), which would create the crime of ‘sexual assault by fraud,’ which it defines as ‘an act of sexual penetration to which a person has given consent because the actor has misrepresented the purpose of the act or has represented he is someone he is not…”
So if you lie about your social status or your feelings towards a woman in order to bang her, well then CRIME.
On the other hand, if a woman lies about her ability to get pregnant and you bang her and knock her up, well sorry buddy, you’re on the hook for next 18-25 years. Sounds fair to me.
Could we charge members of the government under that law?
So I guess we are all now on Riot Watch, eh?
Why they are making this announcement early evening is a mystery to me. Wouldnt it have been better early morning? Announce that you’ll be doing it the night before, let everyone plan on staying home from school or work, and then go for it.
I’m still snotted up but at least my head is clearer than what it was. At least it’s a short week.
Drudge is reporting that the announcement will be at 8 pm Central Time. That let’s everyone get some dinner, down a few 40’s, smack da b!tch aroun’ to get in the mood, then hop public transportation to downtown. At least that’s what I think the white, lesbian, protestors will be doing.
Reminds me of:
Q: How many radical lesbians does it take to change a light bulb?
A: THAT’S NOT FUNNY!
(Heard that from a programmer cow-worker in S.F. who was a member of Dykes on Bikes.)
Watching some live feed from one of the protest sites in Ferguson. A variety of chants including
Who do we want?
How do we want him?
It’s mostly blacks but a good amount of whites of all ages mixed in. I’ll denounce myself in advance, but how whites can be so stupid as to buy in to this bullshit is beyond me.
Whites want flat screen TVs and tennis shoes too.
Will the St. Louis Post Dispatch publish a lifestyle article about “The Top Ten Lootables For 2014”?
Most of the white people look middle-aged. I’m guessing that 60’s generation out to lend support. A lot of college age kids too.
Gateway Pundit is leaking that there will be no indictment of Officer Wilson.
I feel bad for the cops in front of the police stations--it looks cold out and that line of them is just in their usual uniforms with coats and wool caps.
You may riot and loot at will.
Well, good. I was worried that they would cave to the pressure.
Let the blame game begin. Along with the riots.
Funny about Obama’s comments on all this; not one mention of Darrell Wilson and what he’s been through; not one mention that he acted lawfully and that Big Mike Brown attacked a police officer after robbing a store and was lawfully shot by that same police officer in self-defense.
There’s nothing to apologize for here; it’s all bullshit with this empathy thing and dialogue and working through our differences. This whole thing is simple: if you don’t want to be killed by the police, don’t attack them. No great NATIONAL DIALOGUE ON RACE needed.
