But of course he stabbed himself, then invented a whole BLM attack out of thin air.

Go figure.

Of course, he’s not the first person on either the right OR the left to do this kind of nonsense. But it makes me wonder — just why do these people ever think they’ll get away with it? I mean, they almost never do. Or do they?

They were just trying to appeal to affluent black housewives. Instead, they opened a shitstorm of right wing racist whup-ass on themselves.

Every single black family of my acquaintance has had to have “The Talk” with their children. Especially the affluent ones who grew up in liberal racially-mixed communities. Their teenage sons, in particular, had to be sat down and told they can’t behave like their white teenage peers. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers when pulled over by the cops, they will be shot and killed. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers and smoke a little pot behind the schoolyard, they’ll go to jail for the next decade, while their white teenage kids will get a slap on the hand and sent home to Mommy and Daddy. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers and buy a fast flashy car, they’ll be pulled over every fifteen minutes by the cops on suspicion of auto theft and asked to prove that they own that car, or worse yet, arrested for auto theft and forced to hire a lawyer to prove their innocence. And don’t go into certain parts of town where white cracker kids hang out, and *especially* don’t go into their bars. And don’t expect to get served if you walk into a diner in small-town America and all you see are white faces. And so forth.

That’s life for black Americans. That’s the life that this commercial refers to. The Talk that this commercial refers to.

According to the bigots, white people are oppressed in America and black people are just making up all these things. Thing is, with all their racist rioting, all they’re doing is proven the point — that black people encounter bigotry on a daily basis, mostly from people who claim they’re not bigots.

But then, we’re talking bigots here, so I guess expecting intelligence from them would be like expecting flight from a cow.

Ain’t seen no cow flops fallin’ from the sky.

Just sayin’.

Granted, they didn’t know that this was a photo of six bus seats because it was captioned by a prankster as “six Muslim women wearing burqas being brought into our country”. But they still were almost literally pissing their pants over the notion of these burqa-clad women possibly being in their country.

And the fact that it was Norway rather than the United States is irrelevant. Really, do you think our U.S. racist groups are any less easily pranked? Riiiiiiiiiigh.

Today’s right wingers are moronic cowards. Period. They have only one emotion about anybody who’s different from them — fear. They have only one response to that fear — violence, preferably by other people against those they fear. And critical thinking so they can tell the difference between a prank and reality? They’re against it.

So it goes, in what was once a nation that could send a man to the moon, but now is a nation whose sole achievement is being able to elect a pig to be its President.

Trump: “Hey, North Korea! We’re sending an aircraft carrier group to watch your missile launch so if you get up to something, we’ll smack you good!”

NK: “Ha ha ha. You no smack us with silly aircraft carrier, we sink it!”

Australia: “Hey wait, isn’t that aircraft carrier supposed to be holding exercises with our navy in the Indian Ocean?”

Mad Dog: (double face palm). “Yeah. It’s still on its way.” Huge sigh.

Navy: “U.S.S. Carl Vinson steams its way south through the Sundra Strait on way to joint exercises with Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean.”

Whole world: “Say wha?!”

Trump: “Well, we sent submarines instead. Very powerful, we have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier, that I can tell you.

Whole world: “Say wha?!”

Cue double face palm.

A mentally ill man, Kori Ali Muhammad, kills four white men in Fresno.

This is not about terrorism, this is about mental illness. The shooter here, Kori Ali Muhammad, has been in and out of mental institutions for the past decade, released once he’s stabilized so he’s pretty much sane, then he gets back out on the streets, goes off his meds, and goes crazy again.

Both loony lefties and loony righties said that this man had the right to not take his meds after being released from a mental institution, the lefties because they consider mental illness to be merely “mentally different” and we shouldn’t take away their right to choose to be “different”, the righties because they consider mental illness to be a “moral failing” and that people have a right to choose such a thing.

The reality is that this man’s mental illness made these choices for him, not he himself. His brain was literally not working right and was incapable of making sane rational choices regardless of how much he desired to do so. And now four people are dead. Because some abstract “right to be crazy” is more important than both the welfare of the mentally ill, and the welfare of those around them.

World Nut Daily, which introduced the false claim that Obama’s birth certificate was a fake, claims that liberal witches are casting spells against Donald Trump by, amongst other things, sticking pins into carrots. Which doesn’t seem to be working. Maybe we need to stick pins into Cheetos instead?

No, I’m not joking about these people believing in witchcraft. These people are demented. I am just completely bogwumped by the notion that anybody in this day and time believes in real actual witchcraft… ooh, and demons. Can’t forget the demons, which liberals are apparently literally throwing at Trump. Best comment at that link: “Well the demons aren’t doing much bloody good, and I’m getting exhausted painting pentangles and rectangles or whatever the hell to summon them up. We obviously need better bloody demons.”

To which one of my friends replied on my Facebook page, “sweetie, they believe in a magical invisible being to whom they pray to and who NEVER FUCKING ANSWERS. Of course they believe in witchcraft and demons.”

Gah, the stupid, it burns, it burns!

Answer: We do. You and I. One way or another. Either up front, by providing them with adequate schools and opportunities for college, or on the back end, when they survive any way they can doing anything they need to do in order to survive, a path that invariably leads them to prison.

So either we pay for schools, or we pay for prisons. Either way, we pay. Personally, I prefer paying for schools. Because the things that desperate people do to survive generally aren’t nice, and tend to be somewhat destructive of the life and property of people like you and I.

So the next question is, what kind of school has the best results? Betsy Devoss knows. It’s private charter schools. ‘Cause they’re run by private companies, not by the government. Thing is, that’s not what the data says. What the data says is that if you weren’t learning anything in a public school, you won’t learn anything in a private school either. Because charter schools compete for students, many of them, the ones that can’t cherry pick, instead compete by dropping their standards. Students get A’s because teachers make easy tests, not because they’re learning more. I talked to a student at one of these schools and he was really bitter about the education he was getting and the general school environment. He said he could get away with anything, because if they expelled him, they’d lose the money they were getting to “school” him. He said he never turned in homework, and wrote just anything on tests, and they passed him anyhow because they didn’t want him to go to another school and take that money away from them. His experience is pretty much the same as mine was in Jesus School forty years ago, when I briefly attended a high school run by a Southern Baptist church. Most of the kids got A’s, because they were teaching basically 4th grade math to 8th graders.

Which of course didn’t prepare me for high school, but that’s another story.

So anyhow, That’s what Cruella De Ville… err… Betsy Devos… did to Detroit. The resulting charter schools are mostly junk, teaching poor kids no better than the public schools did, but with the downside of regularly going out of business in the middle of school years, having a low-paid itinerant workforce that doesn’t contribute to creating a core of middle-class teachers in the community, and in many cases being even more chaotic than the public schools. But hey, Jesus. So.

department-education

Hey, at least it makes for a nicer-looking logo for the Department of Education, which will shortly get abolished and replaced with the Department of Jesus Schoolin’.
