That’s Hot

So one of the Kardashian things did a couple of videos where she got all nekkid.

Not sure why Nirvana, but eh, they don’t ask me about things like that.

Bill Whittle has a new site.

That is all.

Oh, and don’t click “see more”.

Seriously. Don’t do it.

I’m not kidding. (more…)

Bastids, the world is giving us a little chin music and I, for one, am not happy about it!

I’ll start off slow.

This one baffles me.  Aldi’s won a cheese contest. They’re a German supermarket chain that’s all over EUnuchstan, Australia and the US.

Now, I don’t know what they’re like overseas, but I went into one in Ohio once.  It’s like a cross between a dollar store, a supermarket and the place where Tom Parsons gets his gin. There was a bunch of stuff that resembled food that I would not eat and generic soda-like stuff that I wouldn’t drink.

How the hell did they win a cheese making contest? Did they just go around to their stores and pick up the old milk cartons or are they non-crappy overseas?

Fucking Biden is hilarious,  we’ve all seen him tell us two different felonies to commit just this week, today you’re supposed to shoot through a door (always a felony unless you have a badge)  Bob Owens asks

At what point does a public official making such outrageous, dangerous statements cross the line into criminal incitement?

Never Bob. Rather, he crossed that line but it doesn’t matter, he has that all important (D) after his name.

So many problems could be avoided if someone would just take the time to stop and say, “Are we sure this is a good idea?”, alas, that sort of introspection is no longer in vogue. Via the guy who named his blog after me, we find this hilarity.

Last week an employee came up with a brochure that used offensive images.

It included a mug shot of a bug-eyed black man, and another of comedian Dave Chappelle as a crack fiend. There were also photographs of overweight cops, Judge Judy, Barney Fife and Lindsay Lohan.

Sputter. It’s an orientation pamphalet. Lindsey Lohan was a nice touch, the pic of Chapelle is him doing some crack head, Curmodgeonly and Skeptical has the pic from the actual paper that he took.

Read the whole thing, it’s a true 21st century story, there is cluelessness, idiocy, racism, sexism all smothered in a huge helping of  OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Teh Peepul are revolting sire. NYS pols managed something I didn’t think was possible, they’re really getting their subjects pissed off.  The upstate pol, from Hudson, NY, called gun owners Tea Party psychotards (I get shit for calling my dog a ‘tard-dog, but I’m not a lefty), then had a “town hall” about “No Guns For You!”, well, people showed up and weren’t happy.

Hudson is east of Albany, at the north end of the Takonic Parkway, it’s one of those simulacrums of Queens surrounded by farms and stuff. I wouldn’t have expected them to do this, it’s not the country part, it’s the city part. Small city, probably less than 20K people, but still.

Let’s stick with Gateway Pundit,  so we have high unemployment and we need to decide who will make a plane for our military. No brainer, right? Beechcraft was in on the deal and they’ve made stuff for us before and it’s about 1,400, high-tech jobs so yay! Jobs in Kansas. But that would have been in the Before, we’re in the Now.

“On Thursday February 27th, Department of Defense (DOD) officials awarded the Light Air Support (LAS) contract to the Brazilian aircraft maker, Embraer. Interestingly and without explanation, the cost of the contract to taxpayers somehow ballooned from $355 million to $427.5 million, a 20 percent increase..(emphasis by GP I think V)

As FrnakJ said once, Obama might not be setting out to destroy America, but his actions make more sense if you assume he is.

Another of those exporting our values. In a story about how bad drinking is

But Chamoun wasn’t drunk. He’s legally blind and was being assisted down some nightclub stairs by a friend. “I was even holding my cane,” says the 24-year-old, “but the idiots cut it off in the vid.”

ABC in Australia, unlike MSNBC in America, is officially a state-run media outlet, so it’s nice to see them following our state-run MSNBC. Oh, and I don’t think you meant “idiots” Chamoun, I think you meant, “Assholes”. They knew exactly what they were doing.

Via Yourish, we see some EUnuchstanian oligarchs went to the Middle East to figure out the biggest block to Middle East peace. Can you guess? Is it the war in Syria? Is it Iran paying for terrorism? Is it Egypt sinking into jihadism? Lebanon becoming a Hezbollah-run state?

I’m sorry, I know on this you guys are paying attention about this for sure. Of course, it’s the Jooooooooooos!

Nearly two dozen European diplomats have urged the EU to intensify efforts to block Israeli settlement in and near Jerusalem, saying such construction on occupied lands is the “single biggest threat” to a Mideast peace deal,

You know they said that with that smug, Hans Blix smile. hansbrix

A few anger-inducing ones and we’ll end on a cool note.

This one pisses me off to no end.  According to that poll, nobody not in the media trusts the media and yet, people obviously still believe them. Fuck.

The Feinstein Great Gun Grab that We’ll Never Have To Worry About Because It’s So Stupid And Won’t Do Any Good is in committee. The vote is expected along party lines. Yeah, so was the vote for Hagel’s nomination.

As a few people have noted, people are not buying those tens of millions of guns to turn them in next week.

Politicians everywhere are no longer trying to see how much they can do under the radar, they’re trying to see how much they can do before we give them an excuse to use all that ammo the NOAA and Social Security Admin is buying.

A public service. According to this article , women are fatter cuz they stopped doing housework



Just sayin’.


Now the awesome story from Jay In Ames, if it’s a repost, I don’t care.

Meet America’s first war dog, a stray Pit Bull/Terrier mix, named Stubby. He became Sgt. Stubby, was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat.

Read the whole thing, it’s awesome wrapped in medals and smothered in beggin strips. A coupl exploits were that he was injured and went back to the trenches and also captured a German spy. Seriously. Captured a fucking spy.

Damn, all my dog does is bad things and then sleep on the bed. I’m gonna go kick him. Lazy ‘tard dog.

I had a youtube vid to post this morning and forgot it, so you get a few extra links today. Don’t say I don’t never give you nothing.

People are pointing and laughing, but is this good new or bad news?

I’m trying to figure out if I’m fer it or agin it.

Pakistani Taliban members are threatening store owners to quit selling Viagra-type potency pills or “face the consequences,”

On the one hand, do we really want a bunch of horny jihadis running around having kids?

On the other hand, the Taliban mostly mess with Pashtun and their spiritual brethren.  That link talks about our military having to teach them that they can’t work the ass so much if they want kids.

So if we give them Viagra, they’ll spend their time fucking just about everything  they can hold down long enough except their wives in the right place, and while they’re running around with their boners chasing the village goats, they won’t be blowing themselves up in kindergartens.

Hmmmm. Maybe we should try an experiment in Afghanistan. Air drop Viagra into Taliban controlled areas, see if the population goes up or attacks go down. At the very least we’ll get some great gun camera videos.

Ace links Hot Air linking the Wash Post who says: Good News! (/Prof Farnsworth)

President Obama is considering a series of new executive actions aimed at working around a recalcitrant Congress, including policies that could allow struggling homeowners to refinance their mortgages, provide new protections for gays and lesbians, make buildings more energy-efficient and toughen regulations for coal-fired power plants, according to people outside the White House involved in discussions on the issues. …

It’s good that he’s going to ignore Congress to get what Teh Peepul Need! They’re all recalcitrant and shit and those are all good things. You’re not against saving the planet and those most defenseless? (not that they need guns mind you, they need more gov’t to protect them)

It’s not a story about Obama without a quote from an anonymous source close to Obama (probably the “journalist”) that’s a howler.

These and other potential actions suggest that Obama is likely to rely heavily on executive powers … the president does not see the actions as substitutes for more substantial legislation, he also wants to move forward on top priorities. …

Senor Homer will  translate.

Then this

In the months ahead, some people close to the White House said Obama must weigh the prospect of making progress on his priorities with the risk that acting aggressively could hurt the chances for more substantial legislation on Capitol Hill.

You see, it’s all about Obama getting stuff done so it’s always good news. The only bad news would be if he couldn’t get all the important stuff we need done.

It’s funny how our definitions of “good” and “bad” differ so much. Scary, but kind of funny.

Good News! This man is in Congress.


Bad News! this man is not


Okay, now this is the point of the post and it doesn’t much to do with the theme. I blame Obama.

It’s mostly a hilarious video that’s not funny at all.

First, I’d like to denounce my racism for laughing my ass off at this video. The guys narrating are hilarious but since they’re black, I must be laughing at them and not with them. I also denounce myself for laughing my ass off at the last clip of the mother.

It’s scary because there are many millions of these women’s spiritual sistren, of all races, creeds and colors,  raising children while showing them just this example. It’s very fucking depressing.

You’ll laugh your ass off. (language warning, they hardly say “fuck” at all)

I wanted to do Drudge style, but that’s not easy. I probably won’t even be able to do Puppy Blender Style.

Proof Obama has gone  skeet shooting(at least twice)  NPR gets excited.

*This link and Pshop was from yesterday, I forgot it. That guy does great Pshops but has never once given me any firewood.

And yes, in case any of you were wondering, I do make myself laugh. I’m my own best audience.

Let’s go round the Tubes today.

First, a little middle east madness

Not sure what to think of this, I’ve seen it a few places, supposedly Egyptians found US missiles headed for Gazanian part of Terrorstan.

Nobody mentions exactly what missiles, they say surface to air and anti-tank. Now, the most logical place they could come from is the Egyptian military. Yay! I read somewhere that our stuff can’t be used to shoot at our stuff without some codes we don’t sell. So Egypt can’t use their US stuff to shoot down Israeli US stuff but we could/should give the data to Israel to shoot down Egyptian stuff. I hope that’s true and wouldn’t that be fucking hilarious and delightfully machiavellian?

Next, we have the difference between Israel and their fine, middle east neighbors illustrated very starkly and one reason I hate all “Internationalists”.

A single Syrian missile strike on a bakery near Hama killed more than 60 innocent civilians last week,

Attacking civilians is the goal for them. You can argue it, but there is a philosophical, moral and ethical distinction between intending to kill civilians and collateral damage.

so how did Israel manage to fire more than 1,500 high powered missiles into densely-populated Gaza in November, with the total loss of 161 lives, of which 90 have been acknowledged by Hamas itself as active combatants?

So 1,500 Israeli missile strikes killed 10 more civilians than 1 Syrian missile strike. Foxnews allows the Israelis to answer their question from the above quote.

In cases where there are people inside a house or building we never strike the target without prior warning. We make phone calls, send leaflet flier warnings, and sometimes use a technique called ‘Knock On the Roof,’ where we fire very, very small, very precise tiny bombs onto the edge of the roof

If that shitty, little country were half as evil as our fine political, moral, social and intellectuals in the International Community screeched, there wouldn’t be a Palestinian ‘problem’, except to worry about disease from all the dead residents of Terrorstan. As Yourish notes, Not that the world recognizes Israel’s efforts. But there you have it.
Tangentially related (via terrorism), we have something that makes me a little embarrassed. I had  Blogwar with Stoaty Weasel and it took me a year to get her to fix our link in her blogroll.  I’ve been basically blogwarring with Lemur King and I’ve accomplished….uhhhh… getting a picture of Salma Hayek (and friends) in his sidebar.
Not very impressive compared to the Jawas.
How many other blog wars ended up with most of the losing participants in exile, in jail or, worse, dead?
None, that’s how many. Damn overachieving bastids.
Closer to home, we see the new class of Wymyn Senators talking stupid shit.
But the women also admit that they believe having more women in the room would help in fierce negotiations, compromise and legislating on Capitol Hill, traits they say do not come as naturally to their male colleagues in the Senate….
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., says that women have a camaraderie which helps in relationships that are key to negotiations on Capitol Hill, something she says comes natural to women more than men….

advice and really standing up for each other that you don’t always see with the men,”
Merde de toro. I worked for many years in a bunch of Dunkin’ Donuts (if you say, “Time to make the fucking donuts” I will punch you) and a few years as a waiter, in both places I worked primarily with women.
They fought constantly, their alliances shifted constantly. As Elaine said, “We just tease someone until they develop an eating disorder.”
One guy slept with most of the single girls in one restaurant where I worked, they hated each other and all loved him. Women talk about each other behind their backs like crazy and are fucking mean.
That sentiment enjoys bipartisan support among the women of the Senate.
Yeah, I bet.
Here’s the part of the post where I get women mad at me and men nod knowingly.
says that women are “problem solvers.”
You tell a man you have a problem he tries to help you solve it, but that’s not what women want, they want commiseration. I got in more trouble because of that until I was in my 20s and figured it out. I see a problem I try to fix it. It’s a guy thing.
And no, I would never say that to a women I was dating, I’m not an idiot. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t noticed it.
Don’t get me wrong, I love women but I refuse to idealize them. They’re people too. All that bullshit about if women were rulers we wouldn’t have wars is just that, bullshit. The ruler of Britain would tell Germany that Italy had a fat ass, Germany tells France while making sure that Italy can hear it and well, the nukes start flying.
Now that I’ve pissed off half the people reading this, let’s end on an optimistic note.
Near-Earth-Asteroid 2012 DA14 is scheduled to come close to the Earth on the 15th of next month. NASA claims it will miss. I’m hoping they used their global warmmongering “scientists” to figure out the trajectory and it hits.
It’s about 150 feet in diameter or so and it would be moving pretty darn fast relative to the Earth so we could get a big boom, but not an Earth shattering kaboom.
While I would have preferred it hit before the election, you take what you get in this particular end of civilization.
Why do I think it’s likely to hit? It’s the day after Valentine’s Day. A just asteroid would kill us all before that.
Update: Sorry about the line-spacing, I tried to fix it to make the post easier to read but it didn’t work. I know enough about computers to be dangerous and that’s about it.

I have about 10 links opened, not sure how many I’ll use, the suspense is killing me though.

First up, Ted Gets Off a Good One. An open letter to Sloe Joe helping him with task force on stopping gun violence (Spoiler Alert, Joe is going to call for a ban on all guns not in .gov hands, so I can’t have one but NASA’s swat team can)

Quoth Ted

You will find in your assessment that all of the massacres have occurred in gun-free zones. What gun-free zones create is an environment where good people are unarmed and virtually defenseless against an unstable person intent on committing mass murder. Gun-free zones are modern killing fields. I implore you to recommend that Congress pass a law to ban gun-free zones immediately.

Preach it brother. You should be able to sue the shit out of anybody who creates a Gun-Free Zone if they don’t ensure your protection against criminals with guns.

Keeping with guns, this is where Veeshir is rooting for chickens and roosting.

Illinois is trying to ban all semi-auto guns and regular capacity magazines. I’m fer it and I hope NY, Mass and California do the same. It’ll be funny when hunters find out that an AR is not functionally different from a Remington 7400.

More guns, Tam is a gun blogger and just bought a nice Beretta, but that’s not why I’m linking, I’m linking for this:

500 Guns…but if you’re looking for a cased double rifle in a caliber that begins in “5″, this is the only place in town where you’ll be able to comparison shop them.

I just made in my pants. I’m of two minds about expensive guns. I’d really like a full auto Tommy gun, but as you know I love big-boomers and boy would I love to have a double barrel in something called “nitro-express” or “H&H magnum”.

Next up, we have a foreshadowing of things to come, from California of course. Some CA towns are thinking of or are going bankrupt to avoid the pensions they promised themselves. Well, the pensioneers are not so happy so they’re going to make sure everybody really is bankrupt.

Other cities and municipal bond investors may fear that Calpers’s strategy will lead to long and costly legal battles that leave less money to pay for essential services such as police and fire protection while driving up borrowing costs, Spiotto said.

Okay, that’s funny. I really hope AZ is building that wall along the CA border. At least it’s a desert so we won’t have too many people walking this way. Or rather, we won’t have too many people walking all the way.

Charlie Hebdo is a French mag with balls. Fresh from being firebombed for publishing comics of Mohamed, they decided to do something interesting.

 editor Stéphane Charbonnier writes: “We have put into pictures the life of Mohammed as it is recounted by Muslim chroniclers. Without added humour. If the form seems to some blasphemous, the foundation is perfectly halal. Up to you to decide.”

I think that’s French for “Blow me savages.”

Now on to wars.

Argentina wants the Falklands, Britain says “Bring it on.” Not sure how that’s gonna play out. Argentina is punching above their weight, but Britain is far away and not the naval power they were. Should be interesting.

Sub-section of civil wars.

The UAE apparently thinks Egypt is exporting their civil war (Hey, it’s not just Saudi Arabia anymore!)

During the past year, the United Arab Emirates announced it has broken up several cells it said were plotting against its security.

And the Muslim Brotherhood is on the job!

Syria’s civil war/revolution has been going on for well over a year and the US still doesn’t have a policy, the people in the region have figured that out.

In reality, this convenient diplomatic veneer serves cynical purposes for Russia, but equally so for the US. This diplomatic kabuki theater distracts from the main issue—Washington’s Syria policy remains strategically adrift.

Yup. And don’t think Assad doesn’t know that. I am surprised that Homs hasn’t been given the full Hama treatment.

I figure as soon as Assad figures out the US isn’t going to do shit, it will.

And for some hilarity/endiness from a terrorist

Hezbollah’s chief on Thursday on warned that the region was at grave risk of “sectarian and tribal splits” as the conflict in Syria continues to spiral into deadlier violence.



Now closer to home, Bob Owens thinks we’re past the point of no return, Donald Sensing is more optimistic

I have to admit, I think Sensing is wrong. He writes

Here is what will really happen. Congress passes the law, the NRA et. al. scream about it and then … nothing happens.
Some people (no more than 20 percent) affected by the gun-confiscation law comply with the turn-in order. The rest don’t comply. But neither do they organize or form resistance groups. They don’t start assassinating politicians. They just hide their guns and continue with daily life as before.

So 80% of gun owners ignore a law and our fine political, moral, intellectual and social betters just let it happen?

What happens when harry joe (normal) law abiding type gets arrested for his Remington 742 he got when he was 16 in 1971?

Obama and company cannot let civil disobedience happen and Americans can’t let the gov’t ignore the Constitution they’ve sworn to uphold.

When immovable object meets resistible force bad things happen, especially if resistible force thinks it’s irresistible force.

I think the most important part of civilian guns is that it would require a tyrannical gov’t to employ the military to put us down. Our military is not going to fire on us. As I’ve said, I’d bet my life on that, I hope I never have to, but I’d like to think I would if the situation required it.

And no, I won’t yell “Wolverines” when I do. Unless it’s the Russians invading, then that’s de Rigueur.

Wow, that was all the links, most were either Puppy Blender or Drudge.

Since you’ve made it this far, you get a present.


No, we’re not EUnuchstan-fucked, but we’re pretty well fucked.

Obama has no checks on his power anymore. He didn’t really have many, with the spineless fucking cowards we have in the fucking GOP “Leadership” (calling them “leaders” makes fun of everyone who ever led anything, including the leader of a gang of “stealing candy from babies” types) and with the media hiding his every law-breaking and even murderous act.

The GOP assured us Romney was fucking electable. Turns out, he got a lower percentage of Mormon votes than fucking Bush. 2% switched from GOP to Dem. (via Ace’s sidebar). Fewer fucking Mormons. Fewer Catholics, the people who are so happy about their Church being forced to pay for fucking abortions, thereby damning their (the Church’s hierarchy’s) souls to Hell.

Fuck the GOP. Not another penny, not another anything from me. They shit on the Tea Party because their buddies in Minitrue don’t like us and because we’re trying to decrease the power of the gov’t, their fucking power in other words.

Look at the asshole in Mass, the Tea Party got him elected and he immediately started acting like a fucking leftist asshole and lost to that stupid fucking moron who can’t string two words together without sounding like a moron or a commie (usually both). Do you think the Fucking GOP “Leadership” will learn anything by that? Not just “No”, not just “NO!” but “Fucking no fucking way!” Boehner is talking raising taxes and amnesty already. Fuck.

The GOP refuses to fucking learn that they can’t win fucking elections by being Dem Lite. They need to present a difference.

Fucking Romney didn’t want to bring up Benghazi because he was afraid Minitrue was going to call him a meanie.

Well guess what you stupid, fucking, idiotic, asshole, they called you a meanie anyfuckingway.

When are you stupid, fucking, fucking, idiotic, assholes going to learn you will never win when you play by the rules of your fucking enemies? I know they’re your opponents, but they see themselves as your fucking enemies. You idiots are more the enemy than fucking terrorists who would happily kill them all. No, that’s wrong. You’re the fucking enemies, the terrorist assholes who want to murder them all are their buddies, you stupid, fucking, ignorant, obtuse, refuse-to-learn-anything, assholic, douchebagiferous, jackasses.

Seriously, you stupid, ignorant, obtuse, unable-to-fucking-learn jackasses need to fucking understand the roles you’re playing are designed by people who hate you, want you to lose and have no scruples, conscience or qualms about outright lying to defeat you. Don’t fucking play by their rules. Heads they win, tails you idjits lose, on end is a tie and ties go to the Dems.
If you assholes want power, then play to your base. Us you stupid, fucking assholes.

We’re not the frothing at the mouth, ignorant racists you seem to think we are. While we do froth, it’s because watching your stupidity decade after fucking decade while being condescended at by a pack of stupid, fucking, obtuse, idiotic, moronic losers every fucking day gets fucking annoying as all fuck.

We’re a lot fucking smarter than any of you assholes. All you assholes have is nice hair and the ability to convincingly tell people what they want to hear. No matter how many of your loser-boy flunkies tell you you’re smart, you’re not. The lot of you have as much brains as Biden’s hair-plugs.
There is little or no difference between the GOP leadership and the Dems. Romneycare, Obamacare, what’s the fucking difference?

Fuck em all.

I lost faith in Americans in 1996 so the last election wasn’t much of a fucking surprise, people want to believe happy horseshit, it helps them avoid facing reality or admitting they’ve allowed themselves to be had.

There is no such thing as an “Independent”, that’s a bullshit lie perpetrated by people who like to think they’re smart. “Independents” are people who pay attention to politics for about 3-5 days before an election and when they see two people saying, “Liar” at each other just say, “Oh, there they go again” without ever even trying to figure out if maybe one of them is lying.

I have had numerous conversations with people who say some form of “Well, you choose what you want to believe, I choose what I want.”

No, you figure out who to believe. Take fucking responsibility for yourself. When one person says the sky is blue and the other says it’s purple, look the fuck up and figure it out. Don’t go along with the asshole who says “purple” because you like his hair and you like purple.

Eh, it doesn’t matter. We’re fucked. I’m not saying America will disappear tomorrow, I’m saying we’re fucked and the conditions for that loss of America are getting worse and worse.

I am thinking that Heinlein was a smart guy. While he got technological advances wrong at every turn, he always, always, always got people right.

He fucked up in one big particular. He was used to America being Christian, even hippies back then were into Jesus (recall the song “Convoy” if you dare, recall the line, “And a couple of long-haired friends of Jesus“).

But If you add Fosterites in Stranger in a Strange Land to Nehemiah Scudder and stir in modern sensibilites, well, the new religion that might be made mandatory is Leftism/Global Warmmongering and we’ve just elected Nehemiah Scudder in 2012. Right on schedule.

I’m wondering if I should change my name to Zebediah Jones.

Speech Ain’t So Free Anymore

Posted: September 29, 2012 by veeshir in I'm Afraid I Can't Blog That

We all know about our state religion and blasphemy laws, but I have a problem with another situation.

We have Blazing Saddles, rife with the MOST HORRIBLE WORD IN THE WORLD!!!1!!!!!, so that word is cut out. About 15 years ago they had cut out the farting scene for TV, now that’s back in but they’ve butchered the rest of the movie, I don’t even bother watching it on TV anymore, it just annoys me.  They’ve made it so the biggest point isn’t made anymore.

I substitute teach (math and science, I don’t talk about politics, I did make fun of the Day After Tomorrow), I was in a school and noticed that one kid was reading Huckleberry Finn, I picked it up and found that there was no one named Nigger Jim in the book, just some guy named “Jim”.  Geez, at least change it to “Slave Jim” or something. I forgot to check for Injun Joe, next time I see the book in a school I’ll check it out.

What do both things have in common? They’re about as anti-racist as you can get. In Blazing Saddles, the only people who use racist names are idiots and thugs, the townspeople become cool only after they stop being racist (although allowing the Irish in was a step too far IMO) while in Huck Finn, Nigger Jim shows he’s the best person in that whole damn town.

Now don’t get me wrong, I”m not saying I want to call people niggers, I’m saying that two of the most anti-racist things around have been butchered for PC bullshit.

And yet, here I am watching Pulp Fiction and hearing some seriously racist shit.

Heroin Dealer: Am I a nigger? Are we in Inglewood? No… You’re in my home. White people who know the difference between good shit and bad shit, this is the house they come to.

and of course,

‘Cause it ain’t there, ’cause storing dead niggers ain’t my fucking business, that’s why!


That’s some seriously racist shit, but since the movie is “cool” (they do heroin!!!!), and by Tarantino, I guess the rules that apply to anti-racists don’t apply.

Sometimes I just hate people.

I call those days, “Monday-Sunday”.

Sadly, Cheetah the Chimp has passed away.

Cheetah, the most famous of the sanctuary’s 15 chimpanzees, liked to see people laugh.

“He was very compassionate,” Cobb said. “He could tell if I was having a good day or a bad day. He was always trying to get me to laugh if he thought I was having a bad day. He was very in tune to human feelings.”

Ron Priest, a sanctuary volunteer for seven years, said Cheetah stood out because of his ability to stand up – shoulders tall, back straight – and walk like a person.

Cheetah also stood out for another reason, Priest said: “When he didn’t like somebody or something that was going on, he would pick up some poop and throw it at them. He could get you at 30 feet with bars in between.”

Add to those feats his ability to fight the Nazis, and we truly have lost a great one.
