Kathy Dettwyler

George Takei found karma in a guy getting shot, while he was on an emergency room cot.  I’m sure he’ll find all kinds of karma in this series of events:

More love from the left.

OK, this is where Takei’s karma comes in to play.  Ms. Dettwyler was, unbelievably, fired from the University of Delaware:

As of Sunday, June 25 at approximately 5 p.m., the university has announced that Kathy Dettwyler will not be rehired to teach classes at the school in upcoming semesters. Dettwyler was an adjunct faculty member in the school’s department of anthropology. Her firing comes after widespread national coverage on regarding her Wednesday morning Facebook post in which she said that “Otto Warmbier got what he deserved.”

She very obviously got what she deserved.

I’m sure George will have a real chuckle over this.

 

Don’t trust the newspapers

To your request of my opinion of the manner in which a newspaper should be conducted so as to be most useful, I should answer ‘by restraining it to true facts & sound principles only.’ yet I fear such a paper would find few subscribers … nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens, who, reading newspapers live & die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world in their time.

George Takei takes on unconscious Scalise


George Takei seriously took on Representative Steve Scalise, while he was unconscious, in critical condition, in a hospital.

Takei doesn’t mention the fact that the nameless black lesbian was basically employed BY Scalise ( How many black lesbians does Takei employ? ).

What

An

Asshole

Takei seriously has become a parody of everything he represented on Star Trek.  He is the poster boy of the latest stupid social division, heterophobia.  Kicking someone when they’re down HAS to have some more meaningful label than just “asshole”.

Sad Clown doing Space Oddity

When my favorite seven foot clown vocalist does my favorite musician:

Representative Val Demings on fluctuating Constitutional Rights

Ever wonder how things get so screwed up?  Try this one:

“My First amendment rights is DIFFERENT from yours.”

OK, so, in her mind, we have different social classes?

OK.

Now, where this gets kinda scary is the fact she used to be the Orlando Police Chief.  Luckily it wasn’t her job to interpret the law, just enforce it.  However, now she’s in a position to affect the law.  And, she thinks civil rights are different for different people for apparently whatever reason she sees fit.

That folks, truly is dangerous.

Now, I’m going to give Orlando a pass for right now as Demings is newly elected.  And, I’ll give her a pass this one single time in deference to her probably not having a clue what she was trying to say.

However, I will say this, and I say it often here.  People of the Florida 10th, you know how she’s thinking.  Let’s see how well she does in 2018, knowing what you know now.

My bet, 90% of the people who go to vote never have a clue that she’s just condoned selective discrimination in complete violation of the United States Constitution.  Just call that a hunch.  In 2016 she got 65% of the general election.  Let’s see what happens in 2018.  If I’m wrong and the people of the FL-10th treat with the respect she’s earned, I’ll apologize.  Right now, I’m not worrying about having to.

 

Todd Rundgren

“If I had the power, I’d say: If you’re a Trump supporter, don’t come to my show, because you won’t have a good time. And also, I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself.”

It never ceases to amaze me how people who devote their entire careers to saying whatever the hell pleases them, have no problem being completely intolerant to other people’s opinions.  While cashing in on claiming a higher set of values, they practice fascism and intolerance.

I had several Rundgren tunes on my cell, I don’t now, per his recommendation.  I prefer artists who do it for the art, not so they can claim some moral high road.  And for what it’s worth, I’m not necessarily a “Trump supporter”.  I just know an asshole when I hear one.

Anyone else catch that Schumer flip-flop on Comey?

I doubt it.  So, here it is again:

“I do not have confidence in him any longer,”

Not to be outdone, Nancy Pelosi chimed in as well:

“Maybe he’s not in the right job,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told CNN’s Jamie Gangel. “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”

Even Obama took a shot at Comey:

“Setting aside the particulars of this case, I know that [Hillary Clinton] is somebody who has always looked out for the interests of America and the American people first, and I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don’t operate on innuendo, we don’t operate on incomplete information, we don’t operate on leaks, we operate based on concrete decisions that are made,” Obama told NowThis on Wednesday.

OK, so Schumer stated outright he had no faith in Comey.  Pelosi suggested that after the election, he might be a casualty.  Does it get any clearer than that?  Apparently not.

Fast forward to last night:

So even though Schumer had no trust or faith in Comey at all, it was the TIMING of it that makes it bad. Right? At least Pelosi has enough sense to keep her mouth shut for the time being. I doubt that lasts through the day tho.

So, why the timing?  This, is why:

Apparently Schumer didn’t bother to read it.  I’m sure he got it, just doubt he cared enough to read it.   Now, to put this in perspective, Rosenstein is effectively Comey’s supervisor.  Rosenstein was nominated and passed the Senate with a 94-6 vote.  That is called “bi-partisan” support.  Chuck Schumer voted to confirm Rod Rosenstein.  So, as of April 25, 2017, that’s this year, about three weeks ago, Chuck Schumer very publicly supported Rod Rosenstein, and very publicly did not support James Comey.  Rosenstein effectively fires Comey, Schumer IMMEDIATELY cries foul and claims coverups and the like.  What’s the difference between wanting to fire Comey in November and Comey getting fired in May?  The “timing” as Schumer calls it?  Back to a little blurb in the first article I cited:

Schumer ― who is on track to serve as Senate minority leader for the next Congress, or perhaps majority leader based on Senate projections for next week’s elections ― is the latest in Democratic leadership to criticize Comey.

When Schumer wanted Comey fired, he fully expected to be the person making the call.  Now that he’s not, he’s going to whine about it and spin it anyway he can.  I expect Pelosi to expect everyone forgets all the criticism she’s fired at Comey and chime in on the Watergate angle as well before the day is over.

Anyone who’s followed Comey to any degree at all knows this firing had to happen.  The man was violating FBI code all over the place, pandering to whoever he was answering to at any given moment.  The way he handled Clinton’s email investigation was criminal.  I should be thankful he gutted her campaign, but I’m not.  He needs to be prosecuted for ethics violations, as well as Susan Rice.

And the ultimate irony of this is the fact that Schumer claims the firing is a cover-up for the Russian conspiracy theory that the man he’s protesting being fired just finished claiming didn’t exist.  Repeat that three times real fast.  And yeah, that feature image is intentional.  It’s OK when Schumer meets with Russians, not OK when Republicans even speak to them.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2

Some people were less than enthusiastic about the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel returns to its Guardians superheroes in this sequel, but the resulting film is lacking. Critic David Edelstein calls Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 “a big mess — with dumb jokes.”

Ignore them.  They know not what they speaketh.

Namely, they didn’t get the first movie.  Guardians of the Galaxy was never intended to be an epic motion picture with convoluted plot twists, suspense, or anything that makes you go “hmmmm”.  It’s campy.  It’s silly.  It’s goofy.  It’s just start to finish fun.  That is all.

With that in mind, citing inane silly immature dialogue to prove the point this is no Stanley Kubrick effort you’re witnessing is about as pointless as one can get.

Do yourself a favor, chill out, relax, and watch it.

My only gripe is I didn’t enjoy the soundtrack nearly as much as Volume 1.
