You need to be familiar with both Twitter and some recent social-political-foreign affairs controversies loosely related to Twitter to grok the second photo.

And I’m kinda embarrassed to say this, though not em-bare-assed like the Great Wine Thief of QT, I never knew what The Hollies meant by “he ain’t heavy, he’s my brother” until I saw a picture of this stamp a few days ago.

They call it a “tirade,” I call it the truth.

Don’t fire Dan Page, give him Jay Nixon’s job.

Really?  He was tall and a bit stocky.  He wasn’t a gay Fat Albert.

The caption of this reads:

Lohgan Booker stopped to visit a mural tribute to Michael Brown painted by Joseph Albanese on the side of Signature Screenprinting at Union Boulevard and Cote Brilliante Avenue on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014. “I just want to let this man rest,” said Booker. The screenprinting business co-owner Natasha Harris said that she was looking for a statement with a positive effect. “We respect the police, but we just want the violence to stop,” said Harris.

If you look up the corner of Union and Cote Brilliante on GSV, (it’ll be just to the west of Sherman Park, named after that Sherman, who is buried in Calvary Cemetery), you’ll see that that area was Fergusony long before Ferguson.

 





Today’s Ferguson Miscellany

22 08 2014

Ferguson

The race and sex breakdown of the GJ.   Definitely enough whites to preclude charges being brought, provided they don’t prostrate themselves to the blacks.

*  This “police militarization” meme is basically the way TPTB try to do “LOOK SQUIRREL” to divert rightist-reactionary political energy away from race to fly it into the ground of a liberal-libertarian hobby horse.  (The issue is worth discussing in general, but it’s just not relevant now and in this matter.)  As it turns out, the only way that the agencies (not counting the MONG) involved in trying to keep the peace on the FerGaza Strip were “militarized” is that the Pentagon gave them some stuff, and almost all of that were either 5.56 rifles or .45 pistols, and we can’t even be sure that those were used or deployed to the FerGaza Strip.  Virtually all the scary looking stuff used in Ferguson, those agencies purchased out of their own budgets.  Very very little came from the Pentagon giveaway program.

It should be noted that law enforcement agencies have been “militarized” in the sense of having military-style ranks and a Weberian power structure for a long time.  Because, when people have badges, guns, a monopoly on the use a force and a whole lot of public trust and an investment of the benefit of the doubt from that same public, you need a clear definition on who controls whom and how.

*  At least in this medium, I have not yet and will not post that supposed screen shot of a six-item long juvenile arrest record for someone named Michael Brown.  If that’s a real person at all, then I highly doubt it’s the same Michael Brown.  All six of these juvenile arrests were from the St. Ann PD, which means they were in St. Ann itself.  While blacks can get around do to stuff, why would that Michael Brown, who lived and went to school in various places in the Normandy and the Ferguson-Florissant school districts all his life, develop a St. Ann fetish?  A juvenile getting popped six times by the St. Ann PD is all but certain to live in St. Ann, and there’s no evidence that this Michael Brown ever lived in St. Ann or attended any schools in the Ritenour school district.

What proves my contention right is that someone is suing to try to get this Michael Brown’s juvenile arrest sheet unsealed if there is one.  Proving that the so-called one with six St. Ann PD entries isn’t it.

I have three different Michael Brown entries in my phone’s address book, all three are (if none have moved away) residents of the metro area, from professional relationships I’ve made over the years.  Even though I only ever converse with one of them with any kind of frequency these days.

So he liked to buff his banana to the sound of his own voice.  Well, those are just song lyrics, but if he sang about it, there’s a good enough chance he actually did it.  I’ve listened to a little bit of his “music,” and I don’t see why he got his jollies off on his own voice; his voice was probably the only adult man’s voice worse than mine.

*  If it’s being stupid while trying to walk back stupid…it’s gotta be Rand Paul, whose political stock should be tanking under the floor right now.





Lemon Pie Fight

Ferguson

To summarize:

Moron rapper complains that CNN isn’t doing enough anti-white racial agitation.

Sour Lemon defends the network’s integrity in that regard.

Then a bunch of ooking and eeking.





Charge

22 08 2014

Ferguson

The left is trying to erase Michael Brown’s strong arm robbery (“he paid for the cigarillos”) and his punching Officer Wilson in the eye  socket (“he didn’t try to punch him”) causing his injuries, and even Officer Brown’s injuries (“the X-rays are made up”), out of existence.

Let’s grant them that point, even though we now know by at least preponderance of the evidence that these things happened.

Even if none of that happened, there’s still the matter of 6’4″ 292-pound Michael Brown charging after and lunging at the much shorter much lighter Officer Wilson, and Wilson reacting the only way he could.  Brown barreling after and lunging toward Wilson is the sine qua non of this whole set of affairs.

Cleveland

Rams go to Cleveland to play the Browns tomorrow night in a preseason game.

Get ready for ESPN to crash and test pattern if Michael Sam sacks Johnny Manziel.
