Occasional-Cortex really is the gift that keeps on giving

Short version: "They're out to get me, we need a purge!"


Cultural reference: "There is no pravda in 'Pravda' ", what would be our own version?

During a live stream on her Instagram page, Ocasio-Cortez was asked by a viewer if, to help with national healing, there were congressional plans to institute any “truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives.”

The socialist congresswoman replied that, yes, indeed, she and some of her colleagues have been exploring media literacy initiatives to help “rein in” the press and combat misinformation after last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “So that’s something that we’re looking into.”

Oh yeah.  Some .gov controllers deciding what is and isn't 'true', and what we'll be allowed to hear.  That'd work GREAT!

She really wants to duplicate all the failed crap of communism, doesn't she?

A bit of clearing


                                                        This is a 'What the hell?"

                                                Fairly obvious she did  not think this through

                                                            "Why do you do this to me?"

I hate having my eyes dilated

It's hours later and they're still not back to normal.  According to the doc it's necessary for this exam, but next time I'm going to ask again about this crap.

A ticked-off pig

You'd better not miss

The group’s analysis said, “8.4 million people bought a firearm for the first time in 2020. That’s 40% of all purchases. This year’s buyer is increasingly diverse too. Forty percent of 2020’s buyers were women and the biggest increase of any demographic category was among African Americans, who bought guns at a rate of 58% greater than in 2019.

If Fecesbook actually believes that "Bad language cannot be used because responsible!" reason for conspiring to kill Parler, then Fecesbook needs to commit suicide.

Quote Pelosi, and leftists accuse you of inciting insurrection
.  Because their memory goes back maybe one week.

Jake Tapper is actually a piece of shit, though I understand their need to keep the language clean.

On the idiocy currently going around that the riot last week was a 'well-planned attempt at a coup that intended mass murder!', I could go on a while about that, but I'll keep it short:
You have a 'well-planned coup attempt' and two of your shock troops are Woolly Horned Hat Guy and the doofus carrying the Speaker's podium around?  Really?

Michael Beller is the Chief Counsel for PBS, which means this asshole is paid with tax money Updated

“Americans are so fucking dumb,” said PBS Principal Counsel Michael Beller, who was chatting with one of Project Veritas‘ undercover self-described guerilla journalists. “You know most people are dumb.”
“Kids who are growing up, know nothing but Trump, for four years, you’ve got to wonder what they’re (Trump supporting children) going to be like, ” Beller told the undercover journalist. “They’ll (Trump supporters) be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people – horrible kids.”
Beller suggests removing the children from parents who supported Trump and then sending them to enlightenment camps. "

I'll bet this piece of shit just loves the PRC.

And yes, there's more.

Update: PBS says he 'no longer works there', and was just a 'mid-level staff attorney'.  They must've realized that claiming 'taken out of context' and such wasn't going to cut it on this.

Something occurs to me on how Apple may have shot itself in the ass

Apple- and some others- have now announced "Yes, we're responsible for what people say on our platforms or platforms we're connected to."

So, since they did pretty much nothing to stop/control antifa and BLM using their platforms(Fecesbook and Twatter in particular) to organize and run riots, I look forward to a bunch of businesses and general citizens harmed in said riots suing the ass of Apple/Fecesbook/Twatter and the others connected  to them.

It should be amusing as hell.

The ACLU has been horrible on free speech for a while now, but this has scared them

enough to actually say something:
The American Civil Liberties Union has warned the "unchecked power" of big tech companies to de-platform a US president could be turned against anyone to discriminate against political speech on social media.
(No shit?)
The warning comes amid calls for a racketeering investigation as Donald Trump and his supporters become de-personed from Twitter and Facebook, while competing platform Parler was booted from Amazon, Apple and Google.

Nice to see them acting like they actually believe in free speech again.  We'll see how long it lasts.

From Mr. Correia: "So go start your own social media site! NO, WE'LL SCREW YOU FOR TRYING!"

I said I was going to try to avoid the internet, and anybody wake me if something asinine happens… 48 hours later three giant mega-corporations colluded to crush a little uppity company for not bowing to leftist orthodoxy.

If you conservatives don’t like it here, go start your own place!



(Wow. I’m sensing a pattern here)

When tens of millions of people are feeling fucked over and that the system is rigged against them, and the media who are assuring them that everything is in fine working order are the same untrustworthy media who’ve been caught lying to them about literally everything else daily for years, now feel like their voices are being squashed by the same cabal of mega companies that have been lying and manipulating all the information we are allowed to see for years… and an increasing number of these usually calm and responsible, but now angry and disenfranchised people (who are also the ones who make society work and keep the lights on) are starting to think that lefty style stupid political violence might be the only way to be heard… so go ahead and kick them while they are down.
Well worth reading.

Know what's one of the stupid parts of the 'Get rid of guns, shoot them if they don't hand them in!' idiots?

Fastest-growing groups of first-time gun owners the last few years have been women and minorities.

So a bunch of leftists are talking about ordering the cops they hate to "Go arrest those people who didn't surrender their guns!  Kill them if you have to!", and it'll be fun to point out to them that they're approving sending the cops they hate out to kill lots of women and minorities for not doing what The Man told them to.

You know it's bad when something like this is sold out

Friend is trying to find .50-70 Government brass.  Fat chance.  EVERYWHERE is sold out of even that.  He did find a bullet mold and some dies, but until some brass turns up his smokepole will have to remain silent.

The most common question at the range for months now has been "Do you have any 9mm?", followed by "- any .223/5.56?"  About 50% of the time both from the same person.  I'm guessing that not only is everyone buying everything they can, but companies have shifted as much production as they can to the most-in-demand stuff.

This is not fun.

The end of a kind of ratty week, but the data has been gathered

 for your study

Since the previous post has ruined my mood, at least I can go with a regular feature

to take some of the bile out of the throat.

The ABC News Political Director is either a God-damned fool who doesn't understand

what that wording means, or he's a God-damned fool who's looking forward to it. 

'Cleansing the movement'.
  Words that historically tend to involve boxcars and camps and mass graves.  And he happily put this out on Twatter.

I'd really hoped my later years wouldn't involve a civil war, but these morons seem determined to force one on us.

Secondary effect: If you know that's what this network thinks of you, and the other networks aren't condemning it, why the hell would anyone in the center or right trust a damned word from them?  And yet they bitch about people not trusting them...

Why I've come to hate the Postal Service

Tracking a package: it's gone from Missouri on the 4th to SOUTH CAROLINA on the 7th.  Which makes their 'arriving today' to sound like bullshit.

I'm sick of the mess, and really don't have much more to say right now

Expect minimal bloggage for at least a few days.

I had a bunch of words worked up about the mess yesterday,

but I have no problem borrowing from someone who says it well in a piece over on Fecesbook:
1. If you supported the BLM riots, called them mostly peaceful protests, posted that quote from MLK Jr to pseudo-justify riots, and said that destruction of property and trespassing wasn't violence while simultaneously turning a blind eye to the multiple murder victims that resulted from said riots, but are now calling the storming of the Capitol building a riot and domestic terrorism and are blathering about how scary and terrible it is...'re a fucking hypocrite and partisan hack.

2. If you denounced all the BLM riots but support the storming of the Capitol building, you're probably still a partisan hack, but there's a consistent line of logic here. You learned it from watching the Left and the ineptitude of the court system. You saw politicians and celebrities raising money to post bail for violent rioters. You saw AGs and DAs refuse to press charges against rioters. You saw police departments arresting and charging counterprotestors and people defending themselves and their homes from these rioters while the rioters got away scot-free. You saw the BLM riots celebrated, and defended, and encouraged, and saw the Supreme Court abdicate its responsibility purely to avoid further riots.

...So you basically picked up on the lesson that the only way to get anything done is to riot, and even then, you're not burning shit down, killing people, or targeting bystanders and civilians, but specific federal buildings. Not what I would do, but I can't call you a hypocrite over it. You're just adapting to the environment you're surrounded by.

3. If you denounced both, I don't really have a problem with you, and I'm mainly in agreement with you, BUT I should warn you, you're not gonna have a fun time for the next couple of years, at least. The problem isn't going away and your solutions won't work. They're what got us here in the first place, so you too are going to have to adapt. 4. If you supported both, you're a fucking retard.

What now?  Messy.  Bunch of leftists are calling for anyone guilty of badthink- which includes not condemning ALL the demonstrators for what a few did- to be reeducated, put in camps, all the other crap they've been calling for for years.

Bunch of people on the right are declaring "About damned time!"  Which I understand, but I don't like what happened.  Of course, worrying about it being used by the left doesn't really matter, because if this hadn't happened they'd have pushed people into something else.

After watching rioters being excused over and over by the same asshats now calling for mass arrests, or just shooting anyone who supported Trump, or dared to actually march in DC, Oh yeah, I understand it.  It's truly amazing how many on the left practically crap their pants in outrage when you point this out("It's DIFFERENT when WE do it!", etc.) 

Best things I can see right now is pushing your state/county government, in states not blue, to negate some of the bullshit that'll come out of DC: 1st Amendment/2nd Amendment sanctuaries and such.  Which would help mute things down some, give time to work on stuff.

Right now, I don't know whether I wish I had a crystal ball or not.

I need to clear some space on the PC, too
