A Black Teenaged scalp is worth about a quarter million

I haven’t found anything profound to add in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting in HendersonFerguson, Mo. Same shit different day. The life of a black person in this country is of little value while alive but can be a windfall for the person ending that life.

Darren Wilson, like George Zimmerman before him has been the beneficiary of 234,000 dollars donated on his behalf by supporters who are totally not in possession of any racial animus.

A sampling of some of the comments attached to donations:

“Ofc. Wilson did his duty. Michael Brown was just a common street thug.”

“Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box.”

“Black people can be their own enemy and I am not white…He was shot 6 times cause the giant wouldn’t stop or die. Evil people don’t die quick”

“All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity.”

“I am so sick of the blacks using every excuse in the book to loot and riot.”

“I support officer Wilson and he did a great job removing an unnecessary thing from the public!”

Hess their blarts.

May I be the first to vomit?

Are they still recruiting for that one-way trip to Mars, perchance?

 
 

Holy crap. Ferguson was bad enough, what happened in Henderson?

 
 

Creepy bastids exist in all dark corners.

Have kittehs, eating, instead.

Oh, and next week, I should have the first Dropcam installed over at CatopiaTN.com, for you live kitteh fans. :)

I don’t.

I can’t even.

 
 

It’s like the wingnuts are all “We let you bastards have your nig…. neeeig… neeeeeeeeegro President, so can we just go back to shooting young bucks in peace?”

 
 

Sometimes I pointlessly fantasize about being a hacker in the Burning Chrome style, so that stuff like this could be redirected to groups like Doctors Without Borders or suchlike. (The real fantasy would be burning the Kochs. Imagine 95%-99% of their wealth scattered to charities and microloans. Ooh yeah.)

 
 

To clarify, I fucked up the name originally. Been a rough three weeks…Put kitty down, five rehearsals, one show, in which five minutes prior I lose a chunk of skin right where my well earned callous used be (i.e. where the rubber meets the road, er string.) Planning and execution of wake of my drummers mother. Rough patch with rainbows.

Anyhoo, things may be looking up,if I can get the hang of 3d printing up and running with reasonable alacrity, a real job has been offered, one with bennies and a salary as yet undreamed. Started with a simple queary: “Know anyone needing a smart guy?”
“What can you do?”
“What do you need?”
“Someone who can run a 3d…” followed with “I’d pay x” and “you could do this”…It looks like a busy fall awaits.

 
 

Damn. I got nothin’

 
 

I don’t think any of us have anything.

What can you say in the face of such open bigotry?

In the words of a great American philosopher, sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the Universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

 
 

“All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity.”

Diversity? Ferguson is one of the most segregated communities in the United States.

Also, if the diversity experiment has failed, then all of the white folks should leave the country. Michael Brown’s family most likely came over before the U.S. was even a nation.

 
 

When snark fails the usual suspects, we are closing in on the looking glass, If not already on our way through.

 
 

Not only have we gone through the looking glass, it’s rapidly receding in the rear-view mirror.

 
 

Yes, it’s fun to point and laugh at the rightwing crazies, but there’s nothing comical about openly expressed hatred.

 
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!
 

Luckily, there is still SOME joy to be found in Mudville…

Just saw a headline on Youtube for a Wilson rally: “We Are Darren Wilson”.

Do they even know how that sounds? What that fucking IMPLIES?

no, I guess not.

I’m so proud of you, Sadlies! Pound for pound, you consistently respond better to my blog pimping than the Eschatonians who know me better than you do!

Hmm. Maybe there’s a connection.

At any rate, I thank you for helping me keep the cat grift alive, $1 at a time! You people are the best!

Anyone get really shaken up by the American Canyon quake? I felt it, about 50 miles away, but all it did was make the room roll gently like a small boat and have me wondering if I should fear for a bookcase falling on me.

The fact is, now you liberals understand how you are outnumbered and outvoted here in hte heartland. Please note that we raised more money than the shiftless thugs and there enabelers. Thats how democracy works.

 
 

I’m a little miffed at a certain US AIRline that lost my checked bag yesterday. It finally showed up in Richmond six hours after I got here.

If that wasn’t bad enough, they damaged my laptop. It’s still usable but the screen now has a nice vertical line running down one side.

Of course they specifically disclaim damage to electronics or computers (I checked).

Normally I’d keep the laptop in my backpack but I have a company-supplied iPad that I’m required to carry. It has all my charts and manuals on it and is a required item to operate a trip so I can’t take a chance of being separated from it.

Thus I had the iPad in my backpack and put the laptop in my checked bag, at the mercy of the baggage handlers.

 
 

So, we definitely have re-legalized lynching, then?

Except we’ve gone even farther than that. I don’t know that even the KKK ever offered bonuses for having lynched someone – the pride of having killed an Undesirable was enough. Now, it’s actually turned into a Wingnut Welfare gig.

Unclear on the concept

“The gay pride parade in Columbus is 500,000 strong – why? Because the women go topless. This is the only one where I’ve seen this level of nudity,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “San Francisco, Chicago, Washington, D.C. I have never seen the kind of public lewdness I have seen in Columbus, Ohio.”

Does the Major care to comment?

 
 

“The fact is, now you liberals understand how you are outnumbered and outvoted here in hte heartland. Please note that we raised more money than the shiftless thugs and there enabelers. Thats how democracy works.” Gary Ruppert’s still a massive dick, but only above the shoulders.

 
 

I’m typing with one hand…

Because the other has been stuck in a Pringles can for hours. Send help.

 
 

Wasn’t Ewick the one who vowed to shoot any census worker that came to his house?

 
 

Columbus does have a pretty big gay population and they have a large pride parade every year.

I’ve never seen it so I couldn’t tell you much more than that. I make a point of avoiding that part of town during big festivals because parking is bad enough on a normal day.

 
 

Because the other has been stuck in a Pringles can for hours. Send help.

It’s just cardboard, y’wuss.

I used to be able to fit my hand in a Pringles can when I was a little tyke. Cut a slot in the end and stick in a clamp and it made a cool robot arm.

Y’know, I follow this shit and I wonder,
if we’re so smart, why can’t we invent a fatal disease that will target reactionary, racist minds?

Death seems like the only solution.

I remember reading Dr. Jeter and thinking the killer cyber glove was a bit of a stretch – really, using a robotic glove to massacre people who needed killin;? – but am starting to appreciate the beauty of it.

Glue guns, eh? Well, that could work.

Mo: I sometimes think if we could get it going around as a viral thing that cleaning your toilet with a mixture of bleach and ammonia makes environmentalists and Michelle Obama cry, we could probably thin the herd very nicely.

Yeah, like the DKos said, this would’ve been impressive if he’d written it in 1994. His crisis of conscience is coming late.

But what the hell, better late than never. Even some conservatives have a threshold they won’t cross. For John Cole it was the Terry Schiavo case, for Charles Johnson it was being sent to a Holocaust deniers’ convention, for this guy it’s apparently treating children like animals.

Now let’s see if he actually makes a clean break with conservatism like the previous two did.

Eliminationism is not the answer. I’m pretty sure that’s just frustration talking but, we need to be patient and not get discouraged. We just have to outmaneuver, outnumber, and outvote the most reactionary elements of society. Killing off all of the nobility in France just put a different group of bloodthirsty assholes in charge, and for the most part did not change conditions for the poorest and most vulnerable. Purges don’t tend to stop of their own accord, it usually takes another revolution.

soooo, if this twerp’s dreams came true, breastfeeding in public would become legally actionable…what do you suppose his plan would be to accomodate breast-feeding mothers? isn’t breastfeeding one of god’s miracles? since he apparently thinks its a shameful miracle, perhaps the plan is to subject them to pumping and bottle feeding so that other people aren’t made uncomfortable…or are breast-feeding mothers to stay at home with their babbies in case they need to feed whilst out and aboot…or…oh, wait…i guess that answers the question…

also, this strikes me too as being, ‘hey, it’s okay for ME to make YOU feel uncomfortable because i’m an overtly christian dickwad day in and day out, but it’s most definitely NOT okay for you to make ME feel uncomfortable doing something that is perfectly natural and what your body is designed to do…’

No, I was just hungry, but on the third can I fell asleep and my swelled up and now I can’t get to the last of the chips in the bottom of the can OR get my hand loose.

 
 

Why these fuckers be all trippin’ about breast feeding anyway? Women should be able to do that wherever in the fuck they want. They NEED to do it pretty frequently. So pervy crapheads, get the fuck over it.

This is pretty much an operational definition of “white privilege” – that smoking pot and writing rap lyrics balance out being shot for walking down the street.

I know the writer is madly backpedaling now, having had it pointed out how it sounds. But it still stands; it’s the centrist liberal equivalent of GOP apologies after racist jokes. JUST DON’T SAY IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I’m guessing not.

 
 

My last comment got caught in the hair trap.

Jeffstonianilicious, it has been ajudamicated.

 
 

Maureen had a psychedelic experience and was shown, dramatically, that her subconscious harbors deep seated paranoia and fear of death. As we learned in the Sixties, trips like Maureen’s usually mean you need to work on your “head.” Marijuana is not a free ride into bliss. You have to know how to use it for self-reflection. If you’ve been putting off self-reflection for too long and you’ve stacked up a lot of regrets, marijuana may open the door a little too fast and it can be overwhelming. Maureen has work to do and she should probably start by learning how to meditate and focus her attention. Small amounts of THC can enhance meditation. I think one of it’s biggest benefits is its ability to help you see yourself as other see you. If that’s scary, then give thanks and clean up your act.
also, too…i forgot how to link…

I know you do, friend. They settle into that part of one’s soul that craves a little affection, now and then, and they never, ever vacate, willingly. :-/

My experienced recommendation? Go to a HELLYESWE-kill-shelter, and let another one pick you, today. One certainly will, and you’ll know when it happens. That’ll be a buddy for life… well, for ITS life, sadly, but that’s The Deal with animule companions, see. You need it, though. Please, go do it. One of them NEEDS you even more than you need them.

A little boring just at the mo’… Kevin is in the floor by the lv doorway, tho. Not moving much. I just wore him out with a round of Chase The Red Dot.

Have I mentioned that we have a flame-point Siamese who’s a dead ringer for Kevin?

We do.

 
 

I got home from a week long trip yesterday. I walked in the door and the cat me the “oh, it’s just you, nobody important” look.

 
 

Have I mentioned that we have a flame-point Siamese who’s a dead ringer for Kevin?

Pix, or it nevar happened! :)

Kev is a Creamsicle tabby. Almost solid white, with orange tabby tail and points. His ears look more pink than orange. He’s got a sweet, playful personality.

This pic is old, but my favorite:

From back when we had the bookstore – Bertram (as in Wooster) decided that the space between the cushion and the back of the chair was The Best Place In The World to lie.

Bertie’s a complicated cat… he’s unbelievably skittish and easily scared. He and his mom Serena are rescue cats. I have no idea what someone did to him to make him so paranoid of people and being touched, but if I ever find out it won’t go well for them.

Prestonian, good to hang shortly if garbled. Think problem was on my end could hear and see you fine.

In radio parlance you were 5 by 5. I must have been 1 by 5 as you could see me, but not hear me. And I can actually articulate.

Till next time…

 
 

I must have been 1 by 5 as you could see me, but not hear me.

The technology was failing me on my end. Your speech was only very occasionally clear and unbroken, but it was an obvious connection/dropped packet deal. 90% of the time, it was as if someone were jiggling a bad mic cord on your end… it kept cutting out and back in!

Shit happens. We’ll get it worked out, eventually. :)

I like the T-Shirt with William T. Sherman on it that says “Don’t make me come down there again!”

 
 

Gen. Sherman & the Scorchers Tour Hoodie. Check the back, w/ dates.

Although I do like “Don’t make me come down there/back there/up there again.” It applies to, well almost everything.

Curiously, I’ve been listening to Estonian Classical Radio, the overnight “Nottorno” program has some interesting station ID that they run during the overnight hours.

http://klassikaraadio.err.ee/

This is on in less than an hour, via Google Translate:

If you are the subject of radio in general, one of the famous saying that it is a needle eye, which the whole world of musical richness no way out do not tend to fit in, Fantasy then tries to refute this claim.
It is the author’s two-hour broadcast, which broadcast music studio mover chooses its own discretion, and is based on the assumption that listeners are interested in the same borderless geography and harassing him sound like the aesthetics of himself.

 
 

I can sympathize, Smyt, i never found decent beer in Tallinn. You should stick to the vodka, that’ll take care of it.

 
 

I’m a big fan of Estonian composer Arvo Part. His choral works especially. Lovely frisson throughout.

 
 

So y’all saw that viral video of the gay kid getting disowned and booted out of the house, right? Maybe you saw that the fundraiser brought in $100,000 at last account. Wonderful feel happy stuff. Then I just saw that the murderous cop efforts are over $400K. There’s a lesson in there somewhere.
