Happy Thursday, Wheelizens!

Can’t wait till morning to see what fresh hell the left has consigned my racist, homophobic, deplorable ass to.

I’m sure we’ll be told by our moral and intellectual betters who are, no doubt, working overtime to create the narrative-of-teh-day.

You forgot transphobic, xenophobic, and islamophobic. You can’t forget those!

Correct.

Not to mention our support for that archaic right to own tools the sole purpose of which is KILLING PEOPLE, YOU BARBARIANS!!1!ZOMG!

=====================

Ceiling spiders…pfffffft! I’m more worried about the grizzly spiders:

Good morning, GN! Hello, Fatwa. Happy Thursday.

There was a time in my life when I took a shot of whiskey before going into work. I’m tempted at times, like this morning, to repeat that habit.

Snopes, for all its bias and silliness re: Babylon Bee, actually has a decent analysis up related to the race of mass shooters: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/mass-shooter-shooting-mugshots/

I wonder how CNN’s latest town hall gun control spectacle went last night -- unlike last time when Dana Loesch was on -- I didn’t bother this time.

Huh. And you went there at 5:00 AM instead of a more reasonable hour why? “If you look at this morning’s outcome, it’s tough for us to say ‘Well, what did we prevent?’ ” he said. “Because we don’t know what we prevented or could’ve prevented. What would’ve happened if we didn’t go there at 5 a.m.?”

I would think that if you hadn’t gone there an old man would still be alive.

Heya, Sven and Mac!

Cheers for the links, Sven.

I largely agree with Schlichter that there’s no winning against the grievance-mongers. And I tend to be intractable with yammerheads, anyway. 👿

And you went there at 5:00 AM instead of a more reasonable hour why?

I’m quite curious about that, too.

It’s not unreasonable to assume that anyone ringing a doorbell / knocking on a door at that hour is up to no good. Cops will often admit they do that to catch people off-guard, yet when they fuck up with, say, a wrong door raid, that same off-guard person is expected to recognize it’s the cops knocking down their door and not shoot intruders they have absolutely no reason to think are costumed, immunized state goons.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!

Sven -- thanks for the links. Kurt Schlicter is absolutely right. They don’t hate our positions, they hate us, and changing our positions won’t change that. Just ask the Jews.

Oy…don’t ask.

Hiya, Paddy!

De nada, señor.

Weirdly, the photos which affected me the most were those showing the baggage handlers; basic decency seems so rare in our country these days.

Teh Younger came home from work today with a couple of pounds of blue fin tuna. It was a gift from the owners of a fishing yacht that is tying up at their dock. He got both back and belly portions. The belly portions looked like prime ribeye steak. We sliced up a little and had it sashimi style with a little soy sauce before deciding what to do with it. I did a quick marinade in a soy, ginger, sesame mix and seared it on all sides -- total cook time was 30-45 seconds -- then sliced it thin. It was heavenly. I’m sure Harper would have put it under the broiler.

I think I would stand with Harper on this one, Paddy. Sounds tasty though.

Thanks for that, Fatwa. Americans are basically a decent bunch, it’s just that you don’t see many of them on the intertubes or on teevee. I remember when that sheriff was killed at Borderline in Thousand Oaks last year, when they moved his body from TO to Ventura, people came out and just lined the freeway to pay their respects. I was working in Camarillo that day and the whole plant just emptied out as did every other business up and down the road to line the freeway and the overpasses. No one organized anything, it was just what decent people did.

And meanwhile south of our border, just another day in the land of people who just want to come here and do the jobs we won’t do: Uruapan Mich: 20 Bodies Found Dismembered or Hanging from Bridges Thanks to CJNG
