Rather repetitive fuck, isn’t he?

I am a low-paid employee and after having spent a big portion of my salary every month towards repayment of my debts, I cannot manage necessary expenses of livelihood. Even the fees of my school-going children are running in arrear and I am burdened with heavy expenditure every month. This different situation has mentally paralysed me and my family making my life very miserable.

I have therefore no alternative but to seek your kind favour of financial assistance so that I may meet the basic necessities of life.. May Allah shower you his blessings!

Monkeys Humping Sporting Goods

Filed under: Dark Side, Fun, Humor, Politics, Viewing — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:32 PM (21:32)

Over on Facebook, the proverbial football-humping monkey was invoked —

Just for grins and giggles, I ran a YouTube search for monkeys fucking footballs . . .

. . . but all I found was a monkey humping a basketball

. . . and another monkey humping a bowling ball.

[LTE – ABQ Journal] Spare us the crocodile platitudes

Filed under: Media, Politics, Principles, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:45 PM (20:45)

In Friday’s “Up Front” column “Daughter of gun victim vows to keep ‘putting grief into action,'” Joline Gutierrez Krueger writes that she and her fellow members of “Everytown for Gun Safety” don’t want to infringe anyone’s liberty:

“How do we keep strengthening gun laws without weakening Second Amendment rights?”

“. . . though Everytown’s members stress that they support keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people while protecting the rights of responsible gun owners.”

If the people backing “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly cared about firearms safety, then why aren’t they helping fund firearms safety training, as does their “archnemesis,” the National Rifle Association?

Instead, all they do is lobby and agitate for more restrictive laws upon the pre-existing civil, Constitutional, human individual right to own and carry weapons, as guaranteed by the State and U.S. Constitutions.

As for the phrase “gun violence” —

Why are not criminal stabbings or slashings with knives ever referred to as “knife violence” ?

Why are hit and run murders done with cars or trucks never called “automotive violence” ?

Why are attacks using baseball bats, pry bars, hammers and pieces of steel rebar never referred to as “blunt object violence” ?

So please, Ms. Krueger, Ms. Brulé, spare us the crocodile platitudes about “respecting rights.”

Albuquerque Journal: Re: Daughter of gun victim vows to keep ‘putting grief into action’

If the people backing “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly cared about firearms safety, then why aren’t they chipping in towards firearms safety training, as does the group they list as their archnemesis, the National Rifle Association?

Why is it that not only is “Everytown for Gun Safety” not supporting gun safety training as the National Rifle Association does, its principals are actively working against such training by lobbying to have the places where most of that training would take place — shooting ranges — shut down using “nuisance” laws and zoning codes?

If Michael Bloomberg and the other multi-millionaires behind “Everytown for Gun Safety” truly cared about gun safety, they would put their millions behind the construction of MORE shooting ranges, and the maintenance of existing ones. They would chip in for the creation of DVDs and online video shows that provide instruction on the safe and proficient handling of firearms.

Instead, all they do is lobby and agitate for more restrictive laws upon the pre-existing civil, Constitutional, human individual right to own and carry weapons, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico.

As for the phrase “gun violence” —

Why are not criminal stabbings or slashings with knives ever referred to as “knife violence” ?

Why are hit and run murders done with cars or trucks never called “automotive violence” ?

Why are attacks using baseball bats, pry bars, hammers and pieces of steel rebar never referred to as “blunt object violence” ?

[LTE – Alibi] Berry and ART — The Best and the Worst

Filed under: Media, Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:23 AM (03:23)

Speaking as a long-time reader of the Alibi and resident of Albuquerque, I find it rather hilarious that Richard Berry wins both the “Best City Politician to Get a Pat on the Back” and the “Best City Politician to Get a Punch in the Nose” awards in the 2017 Best of Burque poll.

(If it matters to anyone, I would have supported him for the latter prize.)

On top of that, Berry’s inane make-work destruction of Central Ave (some call it “ART” for “Albuquerque Rapid Transit”) won both awards for “Best Use of City Money” and “Best Waste of City Money” simultaneously.

How is something a good use of public funds and also a waste of those same funds?

Schizophrenic the body politic is here in Albuquerque, that’s for sure.

What this tells me is that Burquenos want their elephante blanco projects, just so long as those projects aren’t “too” disruptive of the daily ebb and flow, meaning that they aren’t personally inconvenienced by these boondoggles.

What people don’t seem to get too well is that these projects almost always do more harm than good — most of the jobs created by them end when the project is finished (that’s the nature of the construction industry), and the tourism business that they bring in almost always falls short of projections that are hailed as Holy Scripture by the projects’ backers.

So what will happen when the Berry Runner is completed? Which of the businesses currently trying to stay afloat along its route will still be in business when it’s completed?

How many of Burquenos who currently support the Berry Runner will actually ride it after it’s done?

Time will tell, but I’m not optimistic on this one.

W.A.S.P. — I’m Alive

Filed under: Listening — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:38 AM (05:38)

The target is me, a monster you flee
I hate what you say and you do
A mirror is there and look if you dare
The fool that you see’s only you
Oh, no, you won’t nail me to your tree
Or hang my head up high
No kingdom reigns over me
Despise all the liars I see
Don’t give me your
“Save my soul” cure

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Can’t understand, the lord of the land
Your heart and your head made of stone
Lay in the sand my blood on your hands
For God’s sake just leave me alone
Oh, no, you won’t nail me to your tree
Or hang my head up high
Restless is all I can be
Ruthless and reckless you see
I don’t need your
“Save my soul” cure

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Force suppression, that’s what you do
Feel me, what’s in it for you
Listen, I’m on to your game
All your lies are the same

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

[LPNM] Resolution Condemning Cuban Arrest of U.H. Hernandez and M.V. Visea

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:35 AM (01:35)

Given that the Libertarian Party of New Mexico exists to promote liberty together with the Libertarian Party of the United States and the Libertarian Parties of all the several states, and the International Libertarian movement;

And,

Given that the political climate in the United States and in other countries has become increasingly authoritarian;

Be it resolved that the Libertarian Party of New Mexico joins the Libertarian Party of Nevada and the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire by condemning the Communist government of Cuba for the political arrest and detention of Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velasquez Visea that took place on February 2, 2017. These men were specifically targeted for their peaceful promotion of limited government and free markets. We call upon Libertarians and liberty-minded people in these United States and free people across the world to join us in condemning the immoral arrest and detention of individuals for exercising their natural and human rights. May tyrants be destroyed and liberty reign among all of the peoples throughout the world.

Resolved by the Central Committee of the Libertarian Party of New Mexico on Monday, February 20, 2017.

    And what about any reasonably available training for the guy who purchases a car for any reason and knows nothing about cars and has little interest in learning even simple safety?

    More people are killed in America due to automotive accidents than gunshot wounds, after all.

    It gets better:

    Now if you’re trying to say “That guy won’t seek such training on his own, so we have to make him,” consider the fact that the “Everytown for Gun Safety” folks don’t have any problem trying to shut down shooting ranges — the very places where that training would take place — using noise ordinances, environmental regulations and such (they’ve only been doing just that since the 1980s).

    If Bloomberg truly cared about gun safety training, he would be spending his billions on building new shooting ranges, instead of lobbying and agitating to wipe out the Second Amendment a little bit at a time.

    How many times were storefront windows were smashed at the Tea Party rallies? How many cars were set on fire at the Tea Party rallies?

    “Should we also be asking how many people were sexually assaulted, groped, harassed, cat- called, bullied, threatened, beaten, and slash or publicly humiliated by the women?”

    At a Tea Party rally? Seriously? How many Tea Party rallies have you personally attended and witnessed this behavior?

    What’s news about this article is that Madonna had a thought. Everything else is icing on the cake.

    What was she planning to do, use her dildo collection for IED casings?

    Remember when she promised blow jobs in exchange for votes in support of Hillary? How far along is her keeping of that promise?

    What astounds me is that any of the studios bother producing sit-coms any more, when you can get all of the comedy you want from the daily “news.”

    Try owning an AR-15 or AK-47 type rifle in California, New York, Massachusetts, or New Jersey (especially the urban areas) before lecturing others about “tolerance” and “letting other people be,” OK?

    As for what “1488” means to the Aryan Airheads —

    1. The “14” is short for “14 words” —

      “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourteen_Words

    2. The “88” serves a double meaning — “H” is the 8th letter of the Latin / English alphabet, so “88” stands in for “HH” as in “Heil Hitler,” as well as David Lane’s “88 Precepts” —

  5. nmpolitics.net – Re: Gun-safety group was top spender among Roundhouse lobbyists in 2016

    “The biggest spender among lobbyists in New Mexico last year was not employed by an oil company or a tobacco company or a mining company. Instead, it was a New York-based advocacy group for gun safety that spent $219,500.

    “The reports, filed this week with the Secretary of State’s Office, show that Pedro Morillas, regional director for Everytown for Gun Safety,”

    If “Everytown for Gun Safety” was truly about promoting firearms safety, they would offer training where people could learn how to handle, use, carry and store firearms in a safe manner.

    Instead, that sort of training is offered by the outfit that “Everytown for Gun Safety” complains about on a regular basis as The Scourge Of America — the National Rifle Association of America.

    While “Everytown for Gun Safety” could be offering firearms training, all they do instead is lobby governmental bodies in the name of restricting the inherent individual, civil, Constitutional right of Americans to own and carry weapons. The Constitution doesn’t give anyone that right — the right is a pre-existing one, accorded to everyone at birth as a matter of being born as a sapient (self-aware) entity.

    White, black, Latin, Asian, or Native, gay, straight or bi, cis or trans, male or female, Christian, Jew, Hindu, pagan or Muslim — the Second Amendment doesn’t discriminate.

    Funny how conservatives and libertarians didn’t behave anything like this on 20 January 2009 or 20 January 2013.

    And there are people in the LP that want to not only look to these people for “common cause,” but recruit them to the LP and run them as candidates.

    From the original post [ https://facebook.com/groups/259892904054714/permalink/1295515010492493/ ] —

    “Libertarians are isolationists”

    This sort of slander and libel has been aimed at the LP since the LP was founded in December, 1971.

    Isolationism is the Great Wall of China, Hadrian’s Wall across Britain, Imperial China between 1757 and 1840, and the Japanese Shogunate between 1635 and 1853.

    Libertarians aren’t isolationists, but *non-interventionists* (there’s a difference — look it up, you can’t expect me to do your work for you), as in we don’t want America to run the lives of the 7,181,000,000 non-Americans around the world.

    Comments like these make me ashamed to be part Polish, and are a data point in support of the Polish jokes in the 15 or so volumes of the Truly Tasteless Jokes series.

    We received it loud and clear here in New Mexico, after repeated infiltration attempts by the Greens in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

    The 2016 Gary Johnson campaign was actively trying to recruit these types, purely for short-term gain (boosting the membership rolls and such). Had to kick a guy off our FB page recently because he thought that he should have carte blanche access to post anti-DAPL material there (we’re in New Mexico, he lives in San Francisco, the DAPL site is in North Dakota, and he can’t figure out why that sort of nonsense isn’t wanted on our page).

    The answer to all three questions is that if you don’t like the responses you get from the charter school or private school in question, you’re free to pull your kid(s) out and enroll them with a competitor.

    So your answer is to keep taking from others and throwing their money and their kids into your preferred system, even if they object to that?

    Barbara Alvarez —

    Because all rich people do with their money is put it all in one big pile to roll around in, and never spend any of it, correct?

    So the utility companies provide them with water, electricity, gas, etc., gratis just because, correct?

    Those rich people never have to pay for food, gasoline for their cars, cell phone service, or internet service, because it’s all just given to them at no charge?

    Claudia Anderson — The private education “system” was what America had before the 1870s, when the Prussian-style public education system (centered around producing conformists) was imported to America by Horace Mann.

    “The rich don’t, as a rule, spend their money, thus allowing it to move down to lower economic groups. Instead, they invest it. Where it stays.”

    Last time I checked, it’s their money, not mine, not yours. Do Bill Gates or Warren Buffett send you letters or emails telling you demanding that you spend your money in ways that they approve of?

    I’m one of the “working poor” as well, and I haven’t yet received any such letter from any rich guy.

    As for the phrase “working poor,” poverty in the Third World is when flies are all over your kids on a regular basis due to lack of sanitation. Poverty in America, by contrast, is when you get that letter from the cable company with “FINAL NOTICE” across the top of the page in big red letters.

    “The rich are, last I checked, still free to do with their money as they wish.”

    Only if they make the “proper” contributions to the DNC and RNC. Which in itself is a form of legalized shakedown.

    As for the poverty line —

    IF this hypothetical 1/3 of the federal workforce actually does follow through on this, that will make Trump one of the better presidents in American history.

    The word “IF” is capitalized because there also have been plenty of collectivist, “liberal,” hoplophobic celebrities saying that they would leave the country if Trump was elected. Well, Trump won the election (or out-cheated Hillzabeast), and those celebrities seem to be staying put.

    I don’t, either. But as I said above, that’s a BIG “IF” — a bunch of egomaniacal clickbait types of the “left” variety have said that they’ll ship out, as well, which doesn’t seem to be happening.

    Or maybe they’re all hoping against hope that Trump will go on TV, say “OK, you got me,” and hand the presidency over to Hillary tomorrow afternoon.

    That, and the responses I get from the Hillzabeast worshippers are just golden.

    Well, some of the papparazi chum DID say they would leave the country if Trump won, and they would NEVER go back on their word, correct? So it just becomes a question of where they’ll go.
