Facts Before The Bench

Posted: March 25, 2016 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah

I’m gonna have to say that I think this law suit should have gone through.

A jury has found that a San Diego law school did not mislead a graduate who sued on grounds she was lured there by false promises that her degree would land her a job.

The jury rejected Anna Alaburda’s claim against Thomas Jefferson School of Law on a 9-3 vote Thursday.

 

The unleashed that asshole on the world, she’s going to spend the rest of her life just suing anybody she can think of, they should be made to pay.

 

Hell, she might try to sue mo for writing this.

By the way, this is Chad, I had to use Veeshir’s log in as I lost mine.

As we watch our social, moral, political and intellectual betters start to figure out that Obama is a feckless asshole who’s made the world a less-safe place, let’s get some chuckles.

Rhode Island Is Working Hard For Teh Children!!!!!!!

State lawmakers are debating a bill that would punish parents for leaving a child younger than 7 alone in a car. They’ve also proposed legislation to ban kids under 10 from being home alone and older kids from being home alone at night. (emphasis me V)

 

Well, some children.

17-year-old daughter …could not operate a power saw, work on ladders or even pump gas. The state also regulates how many hours and times of day minors can work….

…girls as young as 16 …working as strippers, as long as they are home by 11:30 p.m.…(sputter V)…

..Rhode Island law would allow teens to turn to prostitution…

…But a 16-year-old cannot drive without an adult in the car, and those under 18 cannot buy pornography or alcohol. It is also illegal to photograph or film minors in sexually suggestive ways. …

 

 

I have been thinking about a post on hubris discussing how pre-Philip-II-of-Macedon Greek and Persian civilizations had some serious ridiculosities and that there were some at-least-as-funny ends of civilization as ours as related by Greek historians like Herodotus and Zenophon (as soon as I finish re-reading Herodotus), but really, I’m not sure if I can make that assertion anymore.

 

30 Second Later Update!!!!!

Harvey at IMAO (one of FrnakJ’s calmer personalities) links this bit of highlarity about how Scientists! can now predict Crimes!!!!!!!!

Harvey, not a fan of illegal immigration, says,

My prediction: the violent criminal aliens gutless liberals protect in sanctuary cities.

Yeah, but I’d say he’s missing the point.

These people are trying to get a computer to do the profiling people are not allowed to do (unless they’re profiling white men as future slave owners).

They’ve made a computer program that looks at prior felonious behavior (wife-beating in this case to keep the SJWs away), but it could, I’d assume, be almost as good as me at predicting that people who commit crimes are likely to commit crimes (and/or terrorism and/or corruptionism) again.

That’s not Science!!! folks, it’s common fucking sense.

Which is about as common as a politician who gives shit one about America.

Meh

Meh I say.

I just don’t see any scenario where we’re not boned, I’m not even watching the primaries, who cares?  Nobody can do shit with where we are now, so it just doesn’t matter anymore. We’re years past any possible, non-rioting/anarchy solution.

SMOD is still our best, non-zombie-apocalypse solution to our present, in debt up to the eyeballs of the guy standing on the shoulders of the guy standing on our shoulders, situation.

Sooner or later we are not going to be able to pay our debts, so which ones will they blow off? Social security? Food stamps? Welfare? Disability? VA benefits? Huge, gov’t retiree pensions? All of them? Will we go out like the USSR? One day everybody wakes up and the US gov’t is gone?

Maybe we could declare war on China and the EU and tell them we don’t owe them money any more. That’ll cut some of the debt, but probably not enough.

Eh, the only suspense is how the boning starts, so a little local interest post.

I have never seen or even thought about a tree/cactus hybrid, but last weekend I went camping and saw, I think, two. Certainly one.

This looks like a random tree from a distance, you can see leaves near the bottom and a branch branching off along the ground, most trees in AZ seem to have soft wood so the branches either break when they get bit, Palo Verde, or they just travel along the ground, as in this, unnamed, tree.

Pretty darn freaky. It’s a tree half-way up and then it’s a cactus.

I think is an even more extreme example where the barrel or saguaro cactus died or something.

My buddy thinks that’s what inside cactus so it must have been a cactus growing out of a tree. Weird. It’s certainly not what’s inside that tree (I don’t know the name, I only know Palo Verde because the person I asked knew).

I have been thinking of getting an El Camino for a long time, at one point I wanted a Ranchero so I could put the drive train from my Mustang in it and I was going to get a bigger engine for the Mustang, but alas, I quit my cushy gov’t job and can’t afford it anymore.

So today my buddy said he was a nice El Camino cheap and I should check it out.

He lied, it was a GMC Caballero.

I got it for $3K from a dealer. Whoever had it douched it out, 350 Carter 4bbl carb (I might get a Holly instead), Edelbrock air filter, Flowmasters, some deluxe Kenwood stereo that plays DVDs, 225/55/ZR16s on the front, 255/55/ZR16s on the rear. It even has clutch lock up (it’ automatic, my motor head buddy explained it, something to do with bad shifting in GMs)

The carb needs adjusting, it needs a rear view mirror and a spare tire, but I’m happy as can be. I’ve always wanted one and now I have one.

I was going to get a cheap Honda or something old to save the miles on my Mustang (it’s in the 90s now), but c’mon, it’s a Ranche….El Camin….Caballero!!!!!!

My Birthday is this weekend so I’m considering it a birthday present to myself. My aunt (Nee of Hinee), was the only one who still even sent me a card so this will be a cardless birthday. At least it not a carless birthday, so I have that going for me.
