"a theater patron"



“Theater Patron” is how CNN would like you to remember a monster. The media truly is complicit

11:16 p.m. : The weapon used in the shooting was a handgun, said police Sgt. Brooks David.

10:52 p.m.: Authorities said they know the identity of the shooter but are withholding it so as not to "affect the integrity" of the investigation.

10:45 p.m.: He is a 58-year-old white male who was a theater patron fired multiple shots, said Col. Michael Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police. The shooter was acting alone and is deceased, he said. There were about 100 people inside at the time.

Top GOP Strategist Runs To Politico, Smears TRUMP Voters As "CLOWNs"

TOP GOP STRATEGIST RUNS TO POLITICO, SMEARS TRUMP VOTERS AS ‘CLOWNS’

Establishment Republican political consultant Rick Wilson has had quite enough of the rank-and-file getting drunk and making out with Donald Trump in his basement, thank you very much. They're his chumps, dammit, and if they know what's good for them they'll get their little asses up here right now and stop throwing themselves at that greasy punk!

Here is one of the less demeaning things he has to say about the people his party now completely depends on to win elections:

Remember when Ted Cruz was your idol? When he was going to turn the world upside down and bring the TruCon revolution to its zenith? A month ago seems like a long time, doesn’t it? Ben Carson? Suddenly haram. Perry? Off the list. I’ve even seen Trump fans savaging Scott Walker, who almost everyone seems to love. You do know we’ve seen this movie before, right? A celebrity candidate? Cult-like devotion? Iconic posters? Vehement, bordering on violent reaction to any criticism of the One? Weird; I remember conservatives in 2008 reacting to the Obama Cult with disdain, but now we’ve got one of our own.


I can only imagine what kind of charmer Mr. Wilson ("I paid for your goddamn burrito supreme so quit flirting with the goddamn busboy and gimme a goddamn handjob!") must be on a date.

Wilson again:

The circus is almost over.
My advice to Trump fans?
Don’t be the last clown out of the tent.

Congress response to gun-violence

"The elections are coming"

You deserve him and I hope that he wins your bloody primary.

You deserve Donald Trump.

You deserve every slight against service, every racist utterance and every look at me I'm fucking rich, you're all little people.

That your base laps up this unadulterated vileness is your own damn fault. When it served your nefarious purposes, it was all well and good.

Now that it is thrown back in your face, you whine.

You deserve him and I hope that he wins your bloody primary.

He is the conscience of the conservative

Deal with it.

You own it.

Remember Forbidden Planet? Trump isn't the conscience of the Republican party... he's the screaming, ranting, fully exposed and raw Id of the Republican party.

And much like the poor unsuspecting residents of Altair IV, he will wipe the Republican party as we know it off the map. Unlike that tempest tossed race, the party sees it coming, and knows that their only defense is a past denial of those characteristics... and that past does. Not. Exist. They'll scrub websites, try to re-word and re-spinning the past, but those damn videos and audio records will pop up to remind everyone from just whose Ego the wild toupee'd one was born.

The Mutant Daisies Of Fukushima

A recent photograph of less-than-perfect daisies near Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster site is generating headlines and is making the rounds on social media:


The image, showing daisies with a fused center and petals growing out the side, was posted by Twitter user @San_kaido of Nasushiobara, a city that borders Fukushima prefecture to the north. According to a translation from the International Business Times, the tweet reads:

“The right one grew up, split into 2 stems to have 2 flowers connected each other, having 4 stems of flower tied belt-like. The left one has 4 stems grew up to be tied to each other and it had the ring-shaped flower. The atmospheric dose is 0.5 μSv/h at 1m above the ground.”

Should we be worried about these flowers being a sign of the End Times? Anyone who’s ever eaten “ugly” produce knows that these variations from “perfection” are rare but normal.

Gosh, Too Bad.....

From 2012:

Elderly woman rips Jeb in townhall: "I paid into that for years - now you want to take it away?

“We’re not going to have adequate coverage for our children or our grandchildren without Medicare. I paid into that for years and years just like all these other seniors here and now you want to take it away?” said the woman, who did not identify herself and left before the town hall concluded.

“Why are you always attacking the seniors?”

“Well, I’m not,” Bush responded. “Here’s what I said: I said we’re going to have to reform our entitlement system. We have to.”

“It’s not an entitlement,” the woman shot back. “I earned that.”

Obama: US gun control laws 'greatest frustration of my presidency'

If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I've been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which, we do not have sufficient common-sense gun safety laws, even in the face of repeated mass killings," Obama said. "If you look at the number of Americans killed since 9/11 by terrorism, it's less than 100. If you look at the number that have been killed by gun violence, it's in the tens of thousands."

For us not to be able to resolve that issue has been something that is distressing, but it is not something that I intend to stop working on in the remaining 18 months," Obama said.
