LOCAL AND REGIONAL
* Welcome. To. St. Louis. Though I doubt she’ll be coming back, ever.
* Patch was never the best of neighborhoods even when it was hoosier. But now, enter the DeMontaes.
* And of course they’d eventually hit Patch because they’re in the middle of “changing” Carondelet.
* It’s Normandy. Remember, it’s the district where GENTILIVUS GIANTIVUS graduated from. Therefore, you might that muzzles in this case aren’t the worst of things.
* Coming Apart. One is a year older than me and the other is two younger than me, and both look way older, both of them could easily be taken for 50. Meth will do that to you.
* The 11th Ghetto Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Diss.
* The madness has hit home. It doesn’t matter where you are, you’re not going to avoid World War T. Which means you better teach your daughter how not to drop the soap.
* Don’t worry, he dindu nuffins.
* Jorge: I vote early and often.
* Camden, New Jersey: Ruin Porn.
* Wow, that’ll show ’em.
* Crime is up, even in the hoosegow.
* “Grandma got run over by a reindeer…”
* Except for this: Just before Obama was inaugurated in 2009, The Oprah had a TV special in D.C. to celebrate. Biden was on for a couple of segments, and big mouth couldn’t keep his trap shut long enough to keep from blabbing that the previous summer, Obama offered him of his choice of either Vice-President or Secretary of State. The reason that was a gaffe is that it was basically saying that Obama gave Biden first dibs then HRC got the leftovers.
* And when you need clickbait, you do a draft story. Though I’m wondering if there’s something beyond pure clickbait going on here. Some people have been mouthing off about draft draft draft for quite a few years. I’m wondering if important people aren’t worried about some really serious social instability, which of course historically, military conscription has been used to paper over. If that’s what they’re worried about, they should crack open a book about relatively recent history and read the part about Project 100,000 aka New Standards Men.
* Maybe you could take a break from your SJW jihad, Mozilla, and find out what the fuck is wrong with Firefox?
* Read closely, HBD Alert. The story isn’t about lead paint, it’s about the structured settlement cottage industry, the one that makes its bones off of blacks’ love for immediate gratification. As you can read (between the lines), the reason these kinds of settlements were structured in the first place was because certain authorities know what we know, that if the settlement was given up front in one large sum, blacks will blow it all within a year.
* 1996 was the year that Bob Dole had a Kinsley Gaffe and admitted that his party’s platform was “a meaningless piece of paper,” and so it is true in the Democrat Party, that year, or any other year. Still, it’s going to be an embarrassment as today’s Democrats try to reconcile it with the modern day mania over the plight of the undocumented, school-to-prison pipeline, prison-industrial complex.
* Lulz, Bern inequality is worse than one of his keynote issues, income inequality. Seriously, I want him to do well, because it will show that you don’t have to be BAPF in order to win elections. But he’s going to have to do better than narrow constituencies in narrow geography.
* You say “social science,” I say “narrative enforcement.”
* “Wow, people are really struggling and suffering,” Jeb! said. Someone must have told him that people are struggling and suffering.
* They’re wrong, #BLM doesn’t want to micromanage cops. They’d rather them not be around, especially not them.
* Well, why not? Wouldn’t want to be Islamophobic, would you?
* There are two ways to interpret this story if you read closely enough and read between the lines: The first way is that enforcing the rules has a disparate impact on blacks, and the second way is that black high schools are basically athletic programs with a veneer of education.
* It was then that parents’ hands started shaking when they wrote this semesters’ tuition checks.
One of the two profs involved defends herself with this:
In an email to Campus Reform, Fowler complained that “the term ‘illegal alien’ has permeated dominant discourses that circulate in the news to the extent that our society has come to associate ALL unauthorized border crossings with those immigrants originating from countries south of our border (and not with Asian immigrants, for example, many of whom are also in the country without legal documents and make up a considerable portion of undocumented immigrants living in the country).”
Except that the mainstream news goes out of its way to avoid the phrase “illegal alien,” preferring the very words you’re imposing on the students in your own courses.
* Last week, a Brit paper had a feature article about preppers; I thought there was something off kilter about it, or something not quite right about the whole scene. Well, none other than Mike Vanderboegh has finished my thoughts, and taken a sledgehammer to the cult of individualism, the opiate of the greater American right, in the process.
* I think ISIS/AQ/etc. have understood this for a long time, that the first world is the first world because its foundation is a precarious and tenuous bond of interpersonal social trust and altruism, that all it’s going to take for them to do us great damage is to kill us one paper cut at a time.
* These theories have validity. But I think there’s another one: Millennials’ club music just plain sux. I think that my generation, Generation X, incubated the Golden Age of Club Music.
* BET, plenty of television show directorial diversity. Which goes to show you how much television show directorial diversity is really worth.
* The Metallica Doctrine: You’re not paranoid if they really are out to get you, meaning those who are that paranoid will always be able to find evidence that someone is out to get them even if there is no evidence.
Methinks Baraq Obama suffers the Metallica Doctrine when it comes to his precious golf game.
* Distinctive tattoos, should be avoided if you want to be a professional criminal.
