2012 Wrap-Up

31 12 2012

LOCAL AND REGIONAL

*  MMAer vs vodka thief.  Guess who won.

Put all your illegal business on Facebook, dummies.  See if I care.  (Even if the cops do.)

Don’t think that so many Walgreens getting robbed all of a sudden is some sort of cluster.  It’s just that there are so many damned Walgreens these days that it could easily be just a coincidence.

The down side of the North Dakota oil boom.  You might think “Missouri men” going there to seek work means people who look like your blogmeister, but read on.

*  Bad guys vs pizza delivery.  Bad guys win.

NATIONAL

*  Bad guys vs pizza delivery.  Pizza wins.

“It was hip hop night,” so saith the video.

So they’re gonna be that way, huh?  Let’s run them through the scanners so we can laugh at their less than spectacular equipment.

Decline and Fall of the English language, here in vibrant, diverse America.

We get no pic of Eddie Jones III, even though he’s a New Jersey prison guard, and a pic is probably on his personnel file.  But we do have:  (A) An obligatory black reporter, and (B) Him doing an interview with Jones’s ebonics-speaking cousin, to confirm.

Dipshits.  Officially, the Federal government doesn’t officially classify “hate groups.”  That’s the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “job.”

Guess who Charles Schumer wants to knock on his door should they ever have any problems.  That and Biden running the “gun control” “blue ribbon panel” is why I can all but assure you that “gun control” is going nowhere, and they know it.

Fiscal cliff, scaled down.

This is reminiscent of the Postmodernist Essay Generator.  You’ll have to re-enter the URL directly into your browser’s URL bar every time you want a new Thomas Loopy Friedman op-ed;  you just can’t re-load an existing op-ed.  John Engelman on AR would love this, except he’s more a Paul Krugman than a Loopy Friedman fan.  Also, have fun with it while you can, because I’m sure the NYT will scream copyright DMCA takedown.

Young man pays attention in school, gets arrested.  You’ll never guess — New Jersey.  This time, the cops aren’t biting.

Terps vs Amendment the First.

*  It WAS like a Norman Rockwell painting.  Until diversity came a’knockin.  To that one smiling in his mugshot:  Smile while you can, because from what I hear, prison has a way of turning smiles into frowns.

Hispanics vs Muslims/Hindus in New York.

Oh well, at least the city is vibrant.  And also…food and restaurants.

CHICAGO

It will soon be so expensive to park in Chicago that your car will almost be paying minimum wage to the city.

I’ll let you stand in awe of Jesse Jackson’s (Senior) brilliance:

Jackson squirmed, and even oddly tried to blame gun ranges for the massacre: “You know, I think about Newtown, for example, they have three or four gun ranges. Now, there are no gun ranges in Chicago.  [They] have almost no unemployment. … Newtown is so different than the complexity of the urban crisis.”

So “no gun ranges” in Chicago explains why Chicago has no murders.  (Footnote:  Sailer noted that Chicago the city proper had more homicides just in 2012 than there were the fatal victims of mass shootings in the whole country in the last 30 years.)

INTERNATIONAL

To Africa we go.  Remember, Vietnam started with “advisers.”

*  Uh oh, we’ve just abandoned our embassy in that known superpower, the Central African Republic.

*  Funny.  Everyone from a crummy country seems to be discovering their “long lost Jewishness” all of a sudden.

So?  What do they expect us to do about it?  We can’t do anything about it, when China covers our budget deficit and makes most of what we “need” and get from Wal-Martinez.

It didn’t reach American territory…yet.  It was designed to…for sure.

TECH

*  Dumping money in the Caymans to avoid taxes?  All the cool kids are doing it.  However, it’s only really a crime when a Republican does it.

Smartwatches?  Already done.  It’s just that the iCabal will get more media hoo-haw from theirs.

The kids are upset.  Dad might not be that unhappy.

MISC STUFF

The next great crusade for the dork in Orlando with a fax machine.

And here I thought all along the problem with Django Unchained is that it is an anti-white screed.

Nope, I wasn’t imagining things, when I noticed that adult media advertisements are advertising people to start getting into comic books.  For instance, Marvel Comics is running ads on news radio and sports talk radio around here, and I’m sure in a lot of other cities.

*  The young son of NBA player Chris Paul had his very first date on Thursday night.  He took some girl to a Clippers game.  Somehow, he was able to score expensive court-side seats.

Let’s hope that young Chris Paul’s relationship with that girl is strictly platonic, and doesn’t go there. After all, this girl is underage jailbait.

Pizza Delivery: In the Cato Institute’s White Paper on use of guns for self-defense, Pizza delivery merits its own category because robbery has become so common. You’d think these delivery guy would get this message.

There is a reason why a pizza delivery driver in Detroit invented modern soft body armor.

Dying Language: NO kidding. Texting hasn’t helped when I’m seeing things like “U” for you or “Y” for why in formal writing situations when kids are told NOT to use text language. Doesn’t matter, they’ll be passed through and on to college with their ultra low vocabularies.

A kid asked me about a month ago if I “knew all those words,” that were in a 4th grade reading, LOL.

‘Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?

I have repeatedly chastised a friend of mine from Jordan who has a better grasp of the spoken English language than probably 99.9% of AA’s, but whose typing always has room for improvement, for trying to use TXTing language.

If you wish to converse with me, use proper English, including apostrophes please.
