Guns are evil….gangbangers with guns are awesome…

Posted by mesablue on January 11, 2013

I have an idea for all of our politicians on the Hill that want to enact gun laws that only punish the innocent. Since I have no faith in the “you have to vote for the bill, to see what’s in it” crowd, I’ll also be happy to share with folks in all of the flyover redneck states that somehow manage to balance their budgets.

And since we have an Attorney General that has never seen a constitution that cannot be interpreted politically — would have to be up to individual State’s Attorneys and state legislators.

Force cities with high gun crime rates to enforce the gun laws already on the books and go after the criminals that commit 99.99% of gun crime.

Force those that violate the public trust and the oath of their office to be held accountable.

Those cities that choose not to enforce the law and make an effort to take ILLEGAL guns off the street will face incremental fines that go up as each crime with an illegal gun is committed. The law enforcement officials (talking to you Garry F. McCarthy) and mayor will be given warning and then also charged criminally for not enforcing the law by statute.

When you consider that 90% of the guns crimes in this country occur in cities with the toughest guns laws that are never enforced in high crime areas that are run by Democratic machines that would consider this political suicide — this might seem a pipe dream.

However, according to that great sage Saul Alinsky, this would be the perfect time to make this a wedge issue.

We must embrace legal gun control. Embrace it with everything that we have. End gun crime.

End it by taking illegal guns off the streets and by punishing those that refuse to do it.

Before you start going after the people that commit less than .004% of all gun crimes…

Enforce the fucking law as it stands.

This stops here.

We have an opportunity to take an issue and throw it in the face of the hypocrites. They want to own this?

Lets feed it down their throat every crime committed by an illegal gun owner in their districts at a time. Not hard to follow this. Also not hard to keep up with legal gun owners that defend themselves — it’s starting to get momentum.

Oh, by the way, another SWATting.

Posted by mesablue on May 28, 2012

Via Ace.

SWATting the Ericksons.

Last week we spent a lot of time writing about Brett Kimberlin and the incident involving blogger Patterico where someone spoofed his phone number and told 911 he had shot his wife.

Tonight, my family was sitting around the kitchen table eating dinner when sheriffs deputies pulled up in the driveway.

Someone called 911 from my address claiming there had been an accidental shooting.

It wasn’t nearly the trauma that Patterico suffered, but I guess the Erickson household is on somebody’s radar.

Luckily it was two sheriffs deputies who knew me and I had already, last week, advised the Sheriff’s Department to be on the look out for something like this.

Hollywood Sucks

Posted by Wickedpinto on February 2, 2011

But it lets you make enough money to do stuff like this, which is good.

Subject: Good News

I am happy to report that this afternoon at 3:40 PM, the Los Angeles Unified School District voted to grant a charter to Extera Public Schools.

Classes begin on August 15th with 264 students (K – 3) in Boyle Heights – an area of our city burdened by great poverty and failing schools. Although getting a charter is a challenge, it pales in comparison to the challenge of building a great school. We are looking forward to all the hard work that lies ahead.

Good for him, also, the fact that it’s a charter challenging the liberal love affair of teachers unions. Good for him. Spent years as a scumbag with Rahmbo’s brother only to turn around and go “Hey! I’m rich, lets do something nice and effective.” Good on him. If he’s anything like the depictions of his former business partner, and his business partners brother, he will be one terrifying principal or chancellor or whatever role he serves other than financier.

“THE SPEECH!”

Posted by Wickedpinto on January 12, 2011

I’m sure it will be treated reverently by the boot licking libel and slander slinging media that bashed Palin for 5 days.  They will undoubtedly describe it as the day that Obama brought us together as one again, after 8 years of bush, and 2 years of extreme partisan rhetoric.

I didn’t watch the speech, I read the transcript, I did flip over to watch the re-run of the 2008 inauguration of Obama, and couldn’t stand the cheering for more than about 90 seconds.  What I did see, Obama did look a little irritated with all the clapping, but I don’t get the sense (after reading the transcript) as a desire for everyone to exercise more decorum for those who were being “memorialized,” but rather that they kept interrupting his brilliant performance.

At first, while reading “live post” comments at various sites, I thought, “maybe he realizes just how unseemly this is, and is embarrassed.” and a lot of commenters said the same.  At first I thought, “well I remember G. Dub, getting cheered while giving a speech at ground zero.”  Then I realized.  Bush didn’t hand out T-shirts, Bush didn’t have a playbill, Bush had a rough outline, but not a script, not a teleprompter, not a podium, not a list of who was in the crowd that could be called out to demonstrate empathy.   I don’t have a cite, but the Secret Service was pissed that he did what he did when he went there, is how I understand it, and by speeking simply and briefly, he inspired cheers.  Not for him, but for OUR Nation, for OUR resiliancy, and in that unscripted, (worthy of a misty moment) when he says “I can hear _YOU_” really encapsulated why everyone cheered.  He was a leader of all of us, and he heard, and he would make sure that we all were heard.

That’s not a bad kinda cheer in a somber moment.

Now, for our current leader.

Obama had this planned from minute one, and if he was uncomfortable with the spectacle his followers were gonna create, he should have known not to have held it in a way that was indicative of a political rally.  His Fault.  If he wanted to mourn, he shouldn’t have created his OWN memorial of the victims, he should have coordinated with someone closer in a, “I think it’s important for The President to speak, my office will keep in touch.” or some other softer approach.  Instead, he hired out a stadium, recruited a bunch of 3rd year arts degree majors to do some silk screening, and stacked it with political appointee’s and props.

In the End Obama created that spectacle.

Also, remember a paragraph ago, I mentioned how in that simple ad lib of Bush’s he made it about all of us, and he is serving all of us?  Only to spend the next 7 years being called the most polarizing political figure in the history of the universe?  Well, this is 3 paragraphs from Obama’s “The Speech” (I guarantee at least one hack will refer to it that way.)  One that is billed as completely a-politcal.

Their actions, their selflessness, also pose a challenge to each of us.  It raises the question of what, beyond the prayers and expressions of concern, is required of us going forward.  How can we honor the fallen?  How can we be true to their memory?

You see, when a tragedy like this strikes, it is part of our nature to demand explanations – to try to impose some order on the chaos, and make sense out of that which seems senseless.  Already we’ve seen a national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health systems.  Much of this process, of debating what might be done to prevent such tragedies in the future, is an essential ingredient in our exercise of self-government.

But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.

The first sentence is good, but the rest of the first paragraph is a call to arms to “act.”  (pardon for my martial rhetoric.)  He’s saying that we need to “honor” the victims with legislation after them is how I read it.

The second paragraph is about how ignorant we are of eachother and we need to have a “conversation.”  Well, conversations, at least honest ones, just occur, they happen between civilized people who want to clarify an understanding and find where they agree to disagree.  That isn’t what Obama means, “A conversation.” means “lets rehash this whenever it’s convenient for me, in the meantime you should shut up while I’m talking.”  (stole the last sentence from Goober.)

And the third paragraph is far more self serving and insidious:

at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do

Notice, that those who don’t think as “we” do, are the same as those who don’t think as him.  So “we” have to pause, and heal and not wound.   He just granted cover for all of his surrogates to continue the brownshirt action against Palin, the Teapartiers, and fiscally responsible people who believe in the constitution as best as we understand it.

He had a few good portions, but to say it was A-Politcal, is an outright lie.  Those three paragraphs are blatantly political.

On a happy note, did anyone actually watch the best and most healing thing that has happened on the television since last wednesday?  4 straight hours of bones re-runs ran on TNT rather than the travesty of this “memorial.”  Boothe and Brennen, and some of the subject characters always make me smile while making me sentimental.  Far more uniting than this guy is, that’s for sure.

(I’m fighting to contain anger and exhaustion, so I will afix the links later, I think all one of you knows the blogs and references I will be linking, I just don’t have it in me right now.)

“Surely Leslie Nielsen Didn’t Pass Away?”

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 29, 2010

Yes he did, and don’t call me shirley.

He passed away Sunday in the early evening, reports are that it was peaceful, other than the whole dying thing.

Also, according to IMDB, he has 239 credits to his name.  2 Hundred, and Thirty, effing, Nine!

Don’t know if it will make me look at the movies sawadder, or glawadder.  He left a pretty healthy legacy.

An American Icon in comedy, which is a small part, he was shakespearian, but also he was in one of the most well known classic science fiction films of all time, “Forbidden Planet.”

(the vid is kinda long)

And someone already put up vid in memoriam.

A micro-filmography

and

 

Of course

and Naked Gun.

He was a good actor, and he delivered his characters brilliantly.

He had impact over a number of genre’s over a lot of experience, and a lot of talent.

Rest well Bigguy.

He affected a portion of my sense of humor, and I don’t think Airplane or Naked Gun would have been able to deliver as well as they did if Leslie wasn’t a part of it.

You will be missed.

Great Effing Interview

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 6, 2010

My favorite, is that the interpreter is not just translating the words, but the attitude.

It’s AWESOME!

Watch, “chilean elvis” be interviewed by, Dave, “The easily hateable” Letterman.

Interesting debate in New Mexico

Calling all liberals

Posted by mesablue on October 22, 2010

Explain, please…

This has to be one of the most insane things ever said by a politician, let alone the Senate majority leader.

I mean, it’s just. fucking. nuts.

Yet, it will barely make the news — if at all.

I wonder why.

Harry Reid saved the entire damned world — and then lost the election.

Gotta hurt. Such a great man.

And, his son loses too.

Oh…

His website is hurting right now, as well. Don’t know why, but it’s blammo.

I like to find my own stuff, but it’s late at night and the Ewok master actually posted something new.

Juan is PISSED!

Posted by Wickedpinto on October 21, 2010

Juan sometimes gets passionate, but not overtly pissed.  He is a lib, and way too partisan during election years.  The way he responds at this is kinda startling, because. . .

He’s PISSED!

He lights into everyone involved, he isn’t just yessing and noing to O’Reilly, he’s sincerely and obviously pissed!

CNN — the Energizer Bunny

Posted by mesablue on October 2, 2010

The gift that keeps on giving.

Rick Sanchez fired from CNN.

CNN’s Rick Sanchez is not happy with being made fun of constantly on The Daily Show and Colbert Report. It is from this jumping off point that he absolutely unleashed on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and at times his own network, on Pete Dominick’s satellite radio show yesterday.

The big takeaway – Sanchez calls Stewart “a bigot,” then walks it back a bit, and he implies CNN is run by Jews.

He could always go to work for Air America.

Oh, right.

I’m sorry, I think this is hilarious

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 23, 2010

Apparently there is a product designed to satisfy women sexually that doesn’t include a tongue.

I know how that guy feels, and I am not sure if I should buy stock.  Isn’t that outcome an OPTION, not a FEATURE!?  Or am I a pig?

[true thing, I came about that commercial looking to see if one of my local grociers had enduie (however you spell it) sausage on sale.]

Obama on Warehouse 13

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 22, 2010

Found at Newsbusters.

But that’s not the half of it: TV Newser reports the chat “will be roadblocked across various NBCU Networks including MSNBC, USA, Syfy, Bravo, Oxygen, Chiller, Sleuth, UNI HD and Universal Sports.”

Well probably not, though it would be a suitable scheduling layout for him. Maybe he can have a guest appearance on Eureka, as the new administrator of Global Dynamics who is able to fix absolutely everything in the town overnight by simply waving his hand, and then “leaving” the secret town filled with dangerous objects. Maybe he can be on Ghosthunters, walking through the scary red states looking for someone who agree’s with his policies. I don’t know.
Of course this is just as it says, a big block run of an interview to promote ratings, probably assuming that the President is so popular that it would lend to ratings, or as the source article says (go there for the “woo” reveal, it’s a short article.) for some other reason.
I’m just curious as to how many Sci-fi geeks are looking forward to have their fantasy spankfest of Jo handcuffing them, or Claudia “hacking their system” (I think there are some kids who call it that nowadays) interrupted by The President.
Though I must admit that he belongs on Oxygen, maybe after we vote him out in a couple years he can have a daytime talk show on Oxygen, and Holder can have an original comedy show on Sleuth.

Sorry for the formatting, I don’t know whats going on.

Silverhawks,

Don’t think I put up silverhawks back when I did this regularly.

What is it about cartoons and comic books where the bad guys always manage to escape because of some calamitous error on the part of the protagonist, or some convoluted scheme that leads to the antagonists escape?   I mean, I understand that you have to have some sort drama and back story and conflict, but wouldn’t it be easier to just kill the most evil creature in the universe?  They are always the most evil and dangerous people in the universe, or galaxy.

I have an idea.  A gun, A bullet.  If that offends your sensibilities, you can include a trial, before or after the bullet.  Just saying.

Subtitle, “Transhumanism, with a whole hell of a lot of technology you can be just as boring and ineffectual as everyone else, only twice as gay.”

Eddie Munster is all whupped out, and likely getting married.  She said “My first crush was Butch Patrick” and JWF (one of the best excerpt heavy blogs on the planet) said theirs was Marylin.

Mine was either Linda Carter, or Adrienne Barbeau.  I guess I’m a bit of a boob guy.

Loves me some boobies.

I’ll be in my bunk.

Posted by Wickedpinto on July 24, 2010

20 years of fantasizing has paid off.

Tiffany (nice juggs btw) squaring off against Debbi Gibson in the movie called “That Movie Where Tiffany and Debbi Gibson get into a Cat Fight, making me spend a lot of time in my bunk.”

Not sure if that is the actual title, or just the working title.

This Is Actually Kinda Funny if You Know what NKOTB is.

Posted by Wickedpinto on July 19, 2010

I never liked doing celebrity blogarazzi stuff here, cuz I prefer to keep AMA somewhat pure for politics, philosophy and inane humor with a little bit of current events and local news, with a touch of moronophilia.

But this post I just saw at “Seriously OMG WTF” cracked me up, because EVERY EFFING GIRL I dated in highschool trained me well in the nature of the New Kids On The Block.

They were a Phenomenon!  A MAJOR Phenomenon, like a Billion effing Dollars, built on the backs of 5 brooklyn Boston (I knew that)kids.

For those of you not in the know, The New Kids on the Block was a FRIGGEN PHENOMENON!

They had The Right stuff.

They had the Love of every young girl who was just growing their boobies, and all us guys had to find some niche to fill in accordance with the lay out of their boy band paradigmn.

I was a Joey, though I really rated a Donny,  I got so screwed.

I got into more fights than joey ever watched on television, I was A FUCKING DONNY!  But I didn’t get into my height until I was almost 16, went from about 5’2 to about 6′ in about 18 months.

TOTALLY NOT FAIR!

I’m a FUCKING DONNY!  and the Jordan and Johnies used to get my lunch for me and pay for it.

NOT COOL!  Sometimes I hate being the smart sexy tough guy kid.

UPDATE:  I hate to admit it, but that’s actually a pretty good song.

¿Qué el infierno?

Posted by mesablue on April 11, 2008

Has anyone else noticed these government PSA’s being run on Fox News every day in Spanish?

Is this some kind of bad joke or just idiots in government at work wasting our tax dollars as usual?

It’s just strange that they are using American football players in a Spanish language commercial on a non-Spanish channel.

The Shrek commercial is even stranger.

These PSA’s are supposed to be targeted at children to get out and play to help prevent childhood obesity — a noble intention. But — how many Spanish speaking kids are sitting at home watching Fox News every afternoon?

Weird.

*if this is Comcast or some other cable outlet doing this — never mind, but still missing the point.

This IS a tasty burger

Posted by mesablue on January 30, 2008

The Food Network recently visited a place where I ate a lot of greasy (but good) burgers during my college days. Making sure that you order correctly is part of the of the experience. Not as crazy as the hot dog joint a few posts down, but a great place none the less.

Crazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger.
