Ostentatious display of corn.

February 4th, 2016


I spied this on my Facebook wall earlier. It was posted from a closed group I belong to. Closed Facebook groups tend to be more frank and free-thinking than the typical Facebook self-righteous SJW clutter you see on your typical public wall.


I saw this video and I guffawed. Simultaneously cringing. What a ridiculous display of corn.



I had no qualms about stating such.


I giggled as I typed this. Knowing I would not be judged. Those are the types of groups I belong to…assorted mating of the fringe sort. Groups I gravitate to are populated by people who tend to see the “darker” side of life and appreciate unrestrained observation.


silly comments


I don’t handle sappy very well. I don’t do platitudes and warm fuzziness. Fuck that.



Suspect in murder of two young Hispanic girls in October has been arrested.

February 4th, 2016


Police have arrested a teenager in connection with the deaths of Gabriela Calzada and Briana Gallegos whose bodies were found in a Los Angeles park last October.


The fact that the suspect is a teenager leads me to believe this killing is not related to the others I’ve hypothesized as belonging to the “End of The Month Killer.”


Teenagers are usually not serial killers (yet).


A teenager wanted in connection with the murders of two young women who were found dead at a park in Montecito Heights has been arrested, police said Thursday.


CBS2’s Kara Finnstrom reported authorities expect to release further information about the suspect during a news conference later today.


The gruesome discovery of the bodies of Gabriela Calzada, 19, and Briana Gallegos, 17, was reported on Oct. 28, 2015, by a woman who walked her dogs in Earnest E. Debs Regional Park.

According to police, the teenager who remains in custody was a person-of-interest in the case whom officers had been searching for since the crime was committed.

Jeb has been reduced to begging for applause. “¡I coulda been somebody!”

February 4th, 2016


Lades and gentlemen, an honest to God, genuine death rattle, brought to you by the generous souls at the Jeb Bush 2016 Presidential campaign headquarters.



Oh wait, that’s not the one.


This is it.



That moment when your crowd is caught not listening to you. Where could their minds have gone, you wonder?
Shamelessly, you beckon them to recognize your presence.
Shamelessly, desperately, you bellow at them.


I coulda been somebody.


I coulda been President of the United States.


I coulda been a proud Bush son but instead…I’m a bitch’s Bush.


I wonder if Columba has the bed made up?


The Great Shade Assault on Donald Trump.

February 3rd, 2016


I spied this Tweet earlier.


It reminded me of a comment I made after the “Low energy” … as if it’s a bad thing post from last week. In response to Rifleman’s skeptical reaction to my hypothetical Jeb Bush retort to a Trump barb, I wrote:


Donald Trump, in spite of his earliest, private goals, is not a trained politician. He is a showman, an entertainer, a businessman. He has never integrated the the mores of political niceties that guide politicians. This has been pretty much his greatest appeal in this campaign. This is why he throws shade so well and displays such a “cool” vibe.


Jeb is Uncool incarnate.

National mainstream politicians are pretty much all the same as this, but even Jeb seems to take it one step further. He is a great focal point for Trump to target. And he can only dream of throwing shade.


In order for any candidate to go toe-to-toe with Trump in the social realm (which is what this Presidential election is centered about) is the one who can throw shade well.


Up until a few days ago, none of the aspiring Presidential candidates could bring themselves to adequately throw shade at Donald Trump. It was astounding to watch as they skirted the topic and refused to get down and dirty with the Donald. But now we have Ted Cruz’s corner slinging the #Trumpertantrum hashtag around freely while it gathered comical steam all day long. The hashtag ridicules Donald Trump’s whiny petulance which I’ve always felt was a prime target, but which no one ever touched, mysteriously. And earlier, in tonight’s Democratic town hall, Bernie Sanders, of all people, got in the act as well and cast some cross-party shade in Trump’s direction.


When asked by Anderson Cooper what he would say to independent voters wavering between him and Trump, Sanders went into what’s quickly becoming a familiar refrain about Trump’s wild racism and questionable economic policies (a strict $7.25 an hour minimum wage with massive tax breaks for the highest earners).


But then Bernie started to have a little fun:


Trump is, as you know, a well-known scientist—brilliant scientist. And he has concluded after years of studying the issue that climate change is a hoax *dramatic pause* brought to us by the Chinese. Now, that shocked me, Anderson, because I thought that he would have thought it was a hoax brought to us by the Mexicans or the Muslims—Chinese I didn’t quite get.


… So I think—and I would love the opportunity, frankly, I’m prejudiced—I want Trump to win the Republican nomination. And I would love the opportunity to run against him. I think we would win by a lot.


Note that in Sanders’ shade-spew, he mimicked that familiar Trump intonation/rephrasing thing he does: “a well-known scientist – brilliant scientist.”


Now that is a great imitation of Trump’s speech patterns, thus exacerbating the insulting power of Sanders’ barb. After Trump’s 2nd place finish in the Iowa caucus, and his presumptive miscalculation in choosing not to participate in last week’s debate, Trump appears to be floundering, and now, sensing blood, his opponents appear emboldened and are, as I wrote, going “toe-to-toe” and throwing that necessary shade, a special brand of hip insult that could wreck Trump’s flow most adeptly.


I suspect Trump should have no problem weathering this push-back he’s escaped for most of the campaign cycle, but the spectacle should be much more interesting now that the big boys are sparring back.



Is Ted Cruz’s daughter autistic?

February 2nd, 2016


Very interesting.


I saw footage of this throughout the day. It was all geared toward making Ted Cruz look like an ogre. His own daughter runs from him. Won’t kiss her daddy.


Robert Lindsay posted the video earlier and I had a look again.  At home, in the comfort of my living room, it occurred to me.


Her gestures, her behavior.


Is the poor girl autistic? If so, Cruz needs to say something. I realize it’s his daughter, and as such, represents personal family business.


But if you are running for President of the United States, what do you want, or expect? The piranhas are certainly circling…


And speaking of piranha’s, the leftist dimwits at Huffington (at least according to the Daily Caller) are making sinister accusations already regarding the young Caroline.
