Please stop talking about him. Please. Nobody cares.

As for that other ball player dude who did something with some team, I’m sorry, I just can’t get interested in what some supposed adult dude playing a children’s game is doing with what team where and when. What, you want me to care about some grown dude playing zoom zoom with a toy dump truck too?

Outrage in Saudi Arabia as a video shows a woman dressed in normal Western clothing walking in a Saudi heritage site.

Because she’s wearing a short skirt and heels and no head covering, and there’s no obvious male relative with her as is required of women in Saudi Arabia who are outside their home.

I swear, these medieval asswipes are a pestilence. Someone needs to go in there and clean house and bring them into the modern era. Not the United States, though. We’ve already proven that we’re dumbasses who just break things, we don’t fix things. And this medieval dunghole needs a fucking lot of fixing.

So, a car pulls up at the gas station. Windows are open, no music playing, kid gets out then reaches into the car and turns the radio as loud as the shitty boombox sound system in that car will go, playing some rap music that sounds mostly like “thoom… thoom… thoomity thoom thoom thooom…” thanks to the completely overwhelmed tiny little speakers in the front doors being completely drowned out by a woofer the size of a small house.

So our hero says to himself, “hmm, I didn’t know it was be an ass with music day!” And turned on his own stereo system (a much better quality stereo system) at top volume. To this:

For some reason the kid quit filling his tank at $6.78, and drove off with a look of disgust on his face. Heh.

See this . ? This is the world’s smallest violin, playing sad music for the pathetic white broflake who followed a black Muslim couple for 20 blocks yelling slurs and threatening them. Who now has a day in court.

What kind of person does shit like that, anyhow? I mean, most people are live and let live. If someone’s not hurting us, we don’t give a shit. It’s like inbred bucktooth foul mouth cretins in Deep South states. I don’t give a shit that they choose to live in squalor and ignorance and hate. It’s only when they decide to hurt other people that I say “nope, not gonna stay silent about that, bro.”

Ann Landers used to have a favorite term she’d trot out when some busy-body was butting into someone else’s business: “MYOB.” A neighbor didn’t like her neighbor’s clothing-optional lifestyle (which she had to peer through windows or peek over the fence to see in the first place)? MYOB. Someone is upset about two men kissing in the middle of the street? MYOB. And so on and so forth. Unfortunately, Ann Landers is dead. And we’re all the poorer for it. 😦

Thinking about buying a new camera from this New York City mail order emporium?

B&H Photo workers strike on May Day to protest their jobs moving to New Jersey.

Last year B&H Photo’s warehouse workers voted to unionize. This was after the DOJ sued B&H a *second* time for discrimination against the Hispanic warehouse workers. In retaliation and in order to break the union, B&H is moving the warehouse to a location in New Jersey far from public transit. Note that, like most New Yorkers, most of B&H’s warehouse workers don’t have cars — there’s no need for one in New York City, the subway gets you there faster.

Note that B&H has also been sued (and settled) for discrimination against women. This company seems to be run by right-wing religious kooks with weird notions about women and about people who don’t belong to their religion, and should be avoided like all other companies run by right-wing religious kooks (thinking Hobby Lobby and Carls Jr./Hardees offhand).

I’m buying my new camera from Adorama instead. Whose owners btw are of the same religion as B&H, but they don’t seem to take it to the level of kookery like Bigots & Haters does.

I’ve been baking the past few days because we *finally* got summer here in the SF Bay area — and boy howdy, we got it with a vengeance. Broke records all around the Bay area on Sunday, and Saturday wasn’t much cooler.

So anyhow, in the aftermath of a lesbian black woman saving the life of an anti-gay David Duke supporting bigot who was attacked by what appears to have been a lone wolf white Bernie Bro, the tighty righties have their panties in a bunch about how those mean lefties are coarsening the public discourse. Like this leftie threatening violence:

Err, yeah.

Or this liberal threatening violence:

Err, ah. Okay. Well, I’m sure this guy has to be a liberal:

No? Okay, so how about this guy who shot someone outside a Milo Yiannopoulos speech? He was clearly a liberal, right.

Uhm, no. He was wearing a Trump hat and had told his wife he was carrying his gun with him to the event so he could kill some liberals.

Okay, so let’s get this straight. You have some liberals saying that we should impeach Trump, one of whom, out of all the millions saying that, decided to start taking potshots at Republicans. Then you got right wingers saying that killing liberals is a great idea, *lots* of right wingers saying that, you can’t throw a rock at Stormfront or Brietbart or the Fox News comment section without hitting one of the right wingers saying that, and that means that liberals are the ones advocating violence.

Yeah, global warming is real, and it’s apparently baked the fucking brains out of half of America. Just sayin’.

… but not a bomb.

A bomb is what went off at her concert in Manchester, UK, as crowds of young teenagers left the concert. A bomb is what an asshole Islamist suicide bomber set off in the middle of that crowd, killing at least 22 people and injuring at least 59 others.

And the bombing suspect was already known to have ties to Al Qaeda. Had even been ratted on by his family who told authorities that he was dangerous. Was even on a watch list after he got back from a stint in a terrorist training camp in Libya.

What is needed to stop terrorism isn’t Big Brother listening in on every phone call, observing every street corner with video cameras, or other things of that sort. What is needed to stop terrorism is simple human intelligence — following up when a family calls you and says their kid is a violent Islamist extremist, for example. No amount of listening in on phone calls was necessary in order to identify this asshole as a threat to public safety. All that was necessary was for the authorities to listen to his family, who was saying loud and clear that their kid was a time bomb waiting to go off.

And they didn’t, so people are dead.

I expect there to be plenty of folks who now are going to want to impose all sorts of draconian bullshit to “stop terrorism”. All that’s going to do is add more noise to hide the signal. What’s needed is to listen to the human beings who are already telling us who the dangerous people are, not bullshit like spying on everybody’s phone calls or keeping people from taking their laptop computers onto airliners.

But I suppose that’s common sense, and common sense is no good when there’s power to seize and money to be made pushing snake oil…
