Sunday is Punday, I have heard, my Gerbils.

I must ask you all to explain the Proxy Gerbil to me. I will go and ask Harper, but in the case that she does not remember, please enlighten us, one and all.

Sunday greetin’s, dv8 and Mac!

Mac’s description of Proxy Gerbil gibes with my recollection.

Glad to see that -- as of this writing -- Dragon capsule’s approach is looking, as they say, nominal. I dearly hope the entire mission is a huge success.

I also hope that after the damned rioting’s over the government does a thorough investigation of who the hell’s driving the “uprising” bus. (But given my effectively complete lack of faith in all law enforcement agencies, there’s probably no point to such an endeavor. Sad!)

I’m damned angry about the whole sorry mess; the murder of George Floyd, the looting / arson and that the ensuing chaos all seems rather coordinated.

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

But essentially, by calling someone or referring to someone as a Herbert, we were essentially calling him all derogatory words at once.

So if all words are derogatory than none are? (Hmmmm…I suspect that any comic who used that concept as the basis of a routine would be vilified.) 😉

But it was our code, so no one knew that’s what we were doing.

That’s how “ghetto languages” like Yiddish and Jive get started. 😉

It was because we valued individualism and uniqueness so much that we originally thought of the concept.

Curmudgeon approved!

Thanks for your explanation, dv8!

Catching up.

Dv8: sorry to hear that Miss Harper is in a bad migraine cycle -- I hope the new drugs help her out.

Speaking of migraines, how have yours been, Tex? Mine have mostly subsided to 3-4 a year over the last few years. Knock wood.

Thoughts and prayers for Mrs Mac -- and for you as well, Mac.

Tine to get some stuff done I guess.

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, dv8, Mac, Fatwa, and Sven!

That’s exciting news about all the successes of the Dragon capsule and crew. Prayers for continued success and a safe return.

Sven -- I’m glad your migraines have lessened.

Thanks, Paddy. For men, migraines are supposed to taper off after you turn 50. Took me another five years before that began to happen.

I’m not sure what good designating antifa as a terrorist organization does. Not that they don’t deserve it, but legally? How do you define an antifa member?

Maybe when the Dems eventually get back into office, they can designate “white supremacy” as the same.

On the other hand, designate black lives matter while you are at it.

I wonder how much it would cost to buy everything on Amazon?

Bummer. It was video of a moron trying to board a bus with a pilfered ATM.

Yes…I said ATM.

He was upset when the driver wouldn’t let him try to lift it into the bus.

I see another episode of “Protest Theater” is about to begin out here in SoCal. To be followed later tonight by “Mostly Peaceful.”

This news headline makes me chuckle. Peaceful Santa Monica Protest Marred By Nearby Looting.

“And except for that Mrs. Kennedy, how was Dallas?”

Mrs. Paddy knows some people who were at the protest in Huntington Beach. They reported that there were small groups who attempted to get the crowd riled up, violent, and to start smashing and looting. The crowd shouted them down.

Any details on what the protesters were demanding or the identity of the agitators?

The majority of the protesters were demanding an end to racism, broadly speaking. No word on the identity of the agitators.

Looks like LA’s curfew is now being implemented at 4:00 instead of 8:00. Not a lot of notice there.

Apparently, there’s conflicting information on the curfew start time. It could be Santa Monica is 4:00 only, or LA City. Also, it’s maybe in effect now over all of LA County?

All LEO resources seem to be concentrated in LA proper -- if I was in a looting mood I’d head over the hill to the San Fernando Valley.

It’s infuriating how many times local newscasters, pundits, and local politicians are using the word “peaceful.” It also pisses me off when LA Council members refer to the ’92 riots here as the “Uprising.”

I’m sure Reginald Denny is unavailable for comment.

I just read on FB that SoCal Target stores are closed due to the “peaceful protests”.
