It’s Not Getting Any Less Ridiculous Out There

Our media is really bad, our gov’t is ridiculous and we’re stuck having to either pretend it’s not that ridiculous or freaking out over how ridiculous it is.

Amazon wants to buy Whole Foods, possibly to put Walmart out of business, and there’s been pushback.

The FTC is probing a complaint brought by the advocacy group Consumer Watchdog, which looked at some 1,000 products on Amazon’s website in June and found that Amazon put reference prices, or list prices, on about 46 percent of them.

An analysis found that in 61 percent of products with reference prices, Amazon’s reference prices were higher than it had sold the same product in the previous 90 days, Consumer Watchdog said in a letter to the FTC dated July 6.

Like many of you I eat food. I often buy that food in places called supermarkets.

Take the other day for instance, at Safeway there was a ‘sale’ where I could “Buy 1 get 3 Free!!’, the one pack of meat was around $18, for a couple pounds of some meat that wasn’t worth $9/lb. I’d bet before the ‘sale’ it was around $3/lb.  They also had some meat On Sale!!!! for only $2.97/lb from $6/lb!!!!! It wasn’t selling for $6/lb the day before I’m sure. Fry’s does the same thing. Giant does the same fucking thing. Hannaford does the same fucking thing. Price Chopper does the same fucking thing (or did, are they still around?). Shop Rite does the same thing (are they still around?).

That’s just supermarkets, how often do you see something ON SALE!!!!!!! for supposedly around 1/2 PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but you saw it the week before and it was maybe 10% more than the SALE PRICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? I see it a lot. I’m a numbers guy and I remember numbers so I notice that stuff an awful lot.

But our fine betters are mad at Amazon so they’re being hassled for what everybody does. And I mean everybody.

The Rule Of Law in America was never perfect but our betters at least pretended to believe in it. Selective enforcement of the law is worse than not enforcing the law at all.

Our gov’t is demanding that we give it no respect, I don’t see why we shouldn’t agree.

 

Another institution that’s demanding no respect is our fine media.

As Yourish used to say, Israeli Double Standard Day is only on days that end in Y.

Following a day of violence in Israel, the Associated Press headlines: “3 Palestinians, 3 Israelis killed in violence over holy site.” …

After nightfall, a Palestinian sneaked into a home in the Israeli settlement of Halamish in the West Bank and stabbed to death three Israelis…

Earlier Friday, several thousand Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank clashed with Israeli troops, burning tires or throwing stones and firecrackers. Troops fired live rounds, rubber bullets and tear gas. Three Palestinians were killed and several dozen hospitalized with live or rubber bullet injuries

So this is the real scorecard:

Palestinian launches murderous attack: three Israelis killed.
Palestinians launch multiple violent attacks: three Palestinians killed.

Fuckheads in minitrue are bigger enemies of Western Civ than ISIS.

 

Nothing major, just talking about how our media is really minitrue.

Between 2008 and 2016, the media were unapologetic about their adoration of President Barack Obama. Now, they are energized by their thorough loathing of President Donald Trump. In tragic fashion, the hubris of deifying Obama has now come full circle to the nemesis of demonizing Trump. The common denominator of the two extremes is the abandonment of disinterested reporting.

When Obama announced his candidacy for president in 2007, the media relinquished pretenses of objectivity.

They were biased against Republicans and for Democrats for a long time. They’d slant stories, Dem scandals were about how the GOP was attacking them, GOP scandals were about the scandal, but under Obama they lied to make stories go away and under Trump they’re making up lies out of whole cloth to try to get him impeached so Hillary can become president apparently.

If they wish hard enough they feel they can make it true. They really want to undo last year’s election.

 

I was looking for something and didn’t find it but I found this and it made me laugh.

“This room is full of mirrors,” the Queen was heard to tell the President (Obama V) as she led him into the Oak Room.

And I bet a dollar he was too stupid to understand she just called him a narcissistic tool.

Cuz he’s an idiot.

That made me laugh my ass off. I’m absolutely sure he had absolutely no idea at all that she was making fun of him. None at all.

 

Now, this is the type of politician we could use here!

MANITOWOC – Manitowoc Common Council Alderman Michael Howe was arrested in the early morning hours of July 4 after being seen with a group of individuals trying to mount “Bernice,” the giant cow statue in front of Cedar Crest Dairy on South 10th Street.

I wonder if alcohol was involved?

…officers believed Howe seemed like he had been drinking…

…asked Howe if he had been drinking and if he had also been driving. Howe admitted to the deputy he had been drinking at the Vic Ferrari concert earlier that night and driving.

Ours are drunk on power and the only cow they like is the Golden Cow

Against the 2nd Amendment and the 2nd Commandment!

 

Uncle links this Blast From The Past! Gecko 45!

A perp popped up from behind the Orange Julius counter with a full auto Kalashnikov with a 75rd drum...

The Mac-man ran for it, at the sight of the bloody guts pouring out his partner’s stomach.I did a quick tactical reload, grabbed the 870P from the harness on my back, and did some rolls over to the movie theater and back flipped over the concession counter while unloading the 5 rounds of 000 into the skeeball machine. My partner was pinned down, I tossed the empty 870, and realized I couldn’t hit the remaining perp due to my the poor angle of attack. I had to act fast or my partner was done for. I leap over the counter again, and low crawled towards the arcade unseen. I crept behind the Mrs. PacMan game,

That’s always made me laugh. Much of that hilarity is because to this day I am unsure if the guy was trying to be serious or if he meant it as a joke.

 

Okay, that’s hilarious.

I’m thinking they did it because it made them feel pretty. If they were trying to disguise themselves they might have shaved their facial hair off. Not many women in the area have such neatly trimmed facial hair.

30 seconds later update!!!!!!

I meant to link this, Doug M does the “rollover” thing on the ISIS graphic and it’s Fahb-you-luss!

I can’t do rollovers, a man has to know his limitations.  so make my day and click! You’ll feel lucky.
