Carsnak The Fabulous Says…

“Shark poop.”

And the question is, “What is Ocean Ramsey’s future?”

Some people never learn. Nature is untamed and does not play by the touchy-feely rules some seem to expect from it. Just ask Bear Poop Man aka Grizzly Man aka Timothy Treadwell (or his girlfriend Bear Poop Girl) or Mauled By Tiger Roy the Illusionist. Or countless others who have been severely injured or killed when their Animal Fu failed them and cuddly, cute <insert dangerous predator> decided to have a impromptu snack. Good luck with that, Ms. Ramsey. I sincerely hope you live to ripe, old age. But please tell those around you that If and When, it was your decision to put your self in harm’s way and you’re the only one to blame.

Why is it I see a parallel between people like this and those who wish to have us all at the mercy of one of the worse predators of all…criminals? “But he was just a 21 yr old criminal child who wouldn’t hurt a fly!”

Doubling Down On Stupid

It’s become the American Way!

Ending North Korea trip, Dennis Rodman calls Kim an ‘awesome guy’

Ending his unexpected round of basketball diplomacy in North Korea on Friday, ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman called leader Kim Jong Un an “awesome guy” and said his father and grandfather were “great leaders.”

Ok. Let me see if I have this straight. Washed-up Has Been parties with a tinpot dictator who is the son of a tinpot dictator of a third-world shithole country that is laughingly attempting to hold the world ransom because communism is failing once again and they’re are staving their people to death. And Washed-up Douchebag says both are “great leaders”? He must be taking lessons on How To Stay Relevant from Dannie Glover, Sean Penn, and Harry Belefonte. Here’s a suggestion, Washed-up Douchebag; stay in N. Korea.

Cigarette tax jumps up $1 a pack in Chicago

Taxes on cigarettes sold in Cook County are going up by one dollar a pack.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says the tax, which takes effect Friday, is expected to generate more than $25 million annually for the Cook County Health and Hospitals System.

So a pack of smokes in Shitcago will soon be close to $11 thanks to over $6 in taxes? Sounds the students of of the Jesse Jackson School of Shithole Politics and Pocket Lining aren’t getting enough green out of their constituents.

Preckwinkle says the county Revenue Department will hire more staff to help stop tobacco smuggling and tax evasion.

LOL!! Those morons couldn’t stop the mafia from smuggling liquor during prohibition. Now they want to raise taxes for more money for their pockets coffers and want to hire more pockets to fill which will require more taxes infinitae ad nausium. Cigarettes are less than $5 a pack here in Texas. Even less in Mexico. I could send one 18 wheeler up there after loading up in Mexiho and even after paying off all the politicians make a huge profit. Way to go, Chicago voters. Remove all doubt that you’re more stupid than a box of rocks. I say wall it up and let it burn.

In the Unintended Consequences Catagory…

Store owners say plastic bag ban causes more shoplifting

Thieves with reusable bags harder to track, Seattle store owners say

Remembering

As a science fiction fan and a firm believer that our destiny is tied to the exploration and colonization of space, I would dearly love to make a trip “out there”. True there are dangers as there are in any new territory. But Mankind must face those dangers if we are to overcome stagnation and develop as a species. All the more reason to remember those who have died in that noble quest. 10 years ago today the shuttle Columbia broke up over Texas during reentry killing all seven crew members. We must never forget these brave explorers.

On “Why I Wet My Panties…”

“…And Why You Should Because I do”.

Wholly phat Buddha. Found this while browsing Uncle’s place.

Why I gave up my guns

A former firearm enthusiast explains his personal epiphany

Here’s someone who epitomizes the “Piled Higher and Deeper” label. He gave up his guns because of his lack of training, preparation, and intelligence. If I had to single out one paragraph that wraps the whole “I’m a psycho anti-gun ijit” mentality in one it would have to be this…

Only in fantasy does keeping a gun in the home make you safer; the statistical reality is just the opposite. Only in fantasy is the possibility of even minimal gun regulation a threat “to take away all the guns.” And only in fantasy can arming teachers and abolishing gun-free zones be seen as a reasonable response to gun violence — for only in fantasy does throwing more of a problem at a problem equal a solution.

The depths of idiocy and/or blatant lies put forth there is quite amazing. As usual there are no facts, only emotional blah blah meant to feed the parrots.

The only good thing about reading that was the comments in which I found this gem; “A Culture of Entrenched Cowardice” over at chrishernandezauthor. Fits right in with the Oldie But Goodie “A Nation of Cowards“.

Blasphemy!!

Brewing Controversy Over Proposal to Make Water Cheaper Than Beer

PRAGUE—In most restaurants and taverns across the Czech Republic, a mug of beer is, literally, cheaper than water. The country’s health minister wants to change that as he tries to put Czechs on a lower-hops diet.

[…]

He wants to require restaurants and bars to offer at least one nonalcoholic beverage at a price lower than that of the same amount of beer, primarily to offer teens, who can legally drink at 18, an alternative. The easiest thing to do, Dr. Heger said, would be to offer patrons pitchers of tap water.

Outrageous! Who does this gubmint drone think he is? Nanny Bloomberg? In the name of St. Wenceslas, moji kamarádi, tell the buggers to piss off. And send much Czech goodliness to Dun Karinn, 123 My Street, Small Town, TX USofA. Na zdraví!
