LOCAL AND REGIONAL
* Considering where it was found, if they first thought there was blood on the body, they might want to reconsider.
* At first I was thinking some Moorish Science Temple type sovereign citizen type was behind this, except they’re known for squatting instead of scams like these.
Which leads me to this point. Even though this was a scam, I have noticed more and more commercials and solicitations for home owners to rent out their single family residence instead of selling it or letting it lie dormant and unoccupied. The ads are for services that streamline everything in the process. Even Rush Limbaugh narrates one of these ads for local spots on KMOX, not only while his own show is going, but they also air at other times. Though I’ve never heard it when I listen to him on stations other than KMOX, and I have the opportunity to do that often.
Who other than me thinks that that isn’t exactly a sign of a healthy economy?
* Full community input. Good call. Let me put it to you this way: Strange things tend to happen to unwanted and otherwise opposed housing developments in that neighborhood; we call it Italian Lightning. That said, don’t let anyone on The Hill think that the apartments will become AFFH fodder.
* Named after Elmo Zumwalt, who was the namesake of St. Charles County’s Fort Zumwalt school district.
* As often as this kind of thing happens and as successful as these thieves are, it makes me wonder if anyone actually locks their lockers anymore.
* If you think the area around Wrigley Field is what it used to be, it ain’t. See it and weep.
* But I thought walls didn’t work, and that for every x foot tall wall there was an x+1 foot high ladder.
* Some unwanted guests hitching a ride with the Camps of the Saints. CCHF is being compared to Zika, and for good reason.
And you wonder why I’m #NRx.
* The media aren’t in a mood to tell us who is doing it, but then the NAACP goes and fills in all the blanks for us by opposing the mall’s new reactive age-curfew-accompaniment policy. Take that as a hint: If someone enacts a law or policy that seems rather inane, and but for any other clues, if some race or ethnic lobby starts bitching about it, that will tell you why it was enacted in the first place. The first time I figured that out, a northern Virginia county enacted an ordinance about no more than x number of people could sleep in one given room in one given house at the same time. I thought it was just a matter of a county council with too much time on its hands actually wanting to make it to DumbLaws.com, but then I figured out what was going on when the League of United Latin-American Citizens (LULAC) started bitching about the ordinance. It all had to do with the Hispanic propensity to cram jam people into domiciles.
BTW, these mall policies are ineffective and useless, not discriminatory.
* One may be tempted to ask what the market value is for a degree in social justice. Depends on who earns the degree. Most people will be able to parlay the diploma into a public agency job, a non-profit agency job, or in corporate HR. The only exception is if you’re a white cishet gentile, in which case all you’ll be qualified to do is become a malicious internet troll in your parents’ basement while clad in your underroos.
* Bad news that really matters, so it won’t be long until another social justice crisis breaks out in the University of California system.
Isn’t what we’ve been told to think for the last two plus generations?
* I find this ironic, considering on these same environments, various racial groups of students, staff and faculty call for safe spaces for their group and data disaggregation.
* Is it any wonder? Among other places, the Inland Empire is being used as dumping grounds for blacks being driven out of Los Angeles.
* Whatever the MPAA wants, I’m going the opposite way. If the MPAA said that 2+2=4, I’d be tempted to think it was five.
