Today's front page of the Sac Bee made me sick


Boontling, America's other language for (mostly) white people is dying....

Boonville, Mendocino County --

Wes Smoot was bahl harpin' the other day with some kimmies at a gormin' region - i.e., chatting with pals at a restaurant - and nobody more than 4 feet away could understand what he was saying.

Soon, in all likelihood, nobody will understand any of the words he was using.

That's because the 80-year-old Smoot was speaking Boontling, one of just two homegrown languages in the United States - and it is close to becoming extinct.

I love going to AV Brewing where the whole deal is based on the language. maybe the beer and thebeer drinkers will keep it going.....

Morale, Management and Money troubles at SF museums...

The lack of a director at the Fine Arts Museums comes at a time when staff members say morale is low and some key employees have been dismissed. The agency is still suffering from the fallout of the firing of Lynn Orr, former Curator in Charge of European Art, who was stationed at the Legion of Honor and is widely respected in international art circles.

Orr planted the seed to bring Dutch paintings to the de Young in 2007, when she traveled to Maastricht and had tea with the former chief of collections at Mauritshuis, The Royal Picture Gallery. He'd told her that museum renovations would soon be in the works, so she encouraged him to schedule a tour and add San Francisco to the list of venues.

Yet when "Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis" opened at the de Young on January 26, Orr was not invited, she told the Guardian.

Two police officers may have been hit by gunfire in a home Tuesday afternoon and a third person shot in two incidents just minutes apart near North Branciforte Avenue, according to authorities and media reports.

Details about the shootings were sketchy but at least one person was killed.

Santa Cruz police declined to comment and directed all questions to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office. The FBI is assisting with the incident, an FBI spokesman said.

The coroner was called to the area late in the afternoon.

The first report of gunshot victims came in just before 3:30 p.m. Two people had reportedly been wounded at 818 N. Branciforte Ave., between Sunnyside Avenue and Water Street, according to emergency radio traffic.

Santa Cruz people! Beware! (From Jimmy Stiefel)
Happening now: shooting in Santa Cruz near Water/Branciforte. 2 cops down, 1 suspect down. Unknown if more suspects on loose. Joes, schools there on lockdown. Streets are closed. SWAT teams on scene, assualt rifles drawn. Avoid that area! "Take all necessary precautions." the police advise. Stay safe friends.

SO, izzit wrong for me to think WIPEOUT is Hilarious?

Cracks me up. twenty years ago...... I'd be there.

Cardinal accused of aiding pedophiles will vote on next pope, says he’s scapegoat, like Jesus

Catholic Church documents show that former LA Carindal Roger Mahony – now retired, but still an archbishop emeritus in the Catholic church –shielded and protected child-rapist priests. Rather than focus on helping those who suffered from years of abuse in the Los Angeles archdiocese, the narcissistic Catholic Cardinal is again making it all about him in a new blog post claiming that he’s being scapegoated, just like Jesus on the cross.

Last week, Mahony caused a stir by asking God to “forgive” his accusers, who by implication have done Mahony wrong.

This week, Mahony is comparing himself to Jesus on the cross. I’m hardly the authority on Christianity, but I’m pretty sure that Jesus never shielded and protected child-rapist priests.

Cardinal Mahony’s blog post last week:


BANKSY NOT Arrested, identity NOT revealed

Source: PRLOG

PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 22, 2013 - London, England — The England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter that for years has gone by the pseudonymous name of Banksy, was arrested yesterday by police in London. After hours of questioning and a raid of his London art studio, his true name and identity have finally been revealed.

London Police say Banksy’s real name is Paul William Horner, a 39-year old male born in Bristol, England. The BBC has also confirmed this information with his PR agent Jo Brooks and the website that acts as a handling service on behalf of the artist, Pest Control.

London Police Chief Wayne Leppard held a press conference to answer questions about how Banksy was finally apprehended. “We had a 24-hour Anti-Graffiti Task Force monitoring different groups known to have associated with Banksy. We received word that around 2am a group of individuals left a flat speculated to be one of Banky’s art studios. This group was followed by agents and once vandalism had occurred, we then arrested the group, 5 men total. These individuals all had ID on them except for one, and that is the one we believed to be Banksy,” Leppard said. “We then raided the studio where this group was last seen leaving from. Inside we found thousands of dollars of counterfeit money along with future projects of vandalism. We also found a passport and ID of a Paul William Horner who matched the description of the man that we are currently holding.” Leppard continued, “Horner is currently being held without bail on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting. We are also holding the other four individuals whose names we are not releasing at this time.”

HOAX> Got me good and a lot of people.

Flush Rush! Limpballs losing advertisers like crazy!

“We wanted to know who her owner was, and we wanted to know how much he got for her.... She might have outlived her usefulness on the plantation,” Limbaugh declared. “I mean, [you] never know, child-rearing years are over so maybe her value had plummeted.” ~Limbaugh, February 14, 2013 in reference to Black US Congresswoman, Shelia Jackson Lee

He thinks he's getting away with comments like this. He's not. Last month I published a diary about his sponsors leaving, http://www.dailykos.com/... and it received over 18k facebook likes/shares. People are hungry - starving to see him go, and thousands of consumers are contacting his sponsors via StopRush.net and signing petitions like the one below. Organizations like Daily Kos, UniteWomen.org, Planned Parenthood, Media Matters and other groups, are exposing Limbaugh for who and what he is. His behavior is that of a racist, sexist, gay-hating, lying bigot. This is not me, 'name-calling'. This is truth in media, and backed up by Limbaugh's very own words in audio/video.

The good news? In one month, over 300 more sponsors have pulled ads, now totaling over 2,500.

Hey thanks for the hearts!

Awesomeness. Especially after the DU Week I just had...

Catholics and my thoughts

Okay, I am going to open a can of worms here but here goes:

I had a girlfriend that was raped repeatedly by her Catholic keepers, not only by the Priests but also by the affiliated charities supported by the church and YOUR MONEY! . As a foster kid she was placed in a catholic run group home. And she was passed around the room sitting on men's laps. she was ten. Gang raped and used for sex for almost ten years. BY CATHOLICS. (This was in Sacramento). She was then and is now one screwed up woman.

IMO, If you are CATHOLIC you are a criminal. A conspiracy is a conspiracy and this one goes to the top of the religion. You are supporting the largest criminal child molestation ring the world has ever seen. No longer one or two rogue priests,(Or even hundreds) the CONSPIRACY TO MOLEST CHILDREN HAS USED YOUR MONEY AND FAITH to keep EVERYONE IN THE CHURCH IN CHILD SEX.

the simple fact that I see people going to Mass everyday and nobody protesting tells me that Catholics do not care one wit about this. How you can go to church and put money in the collection plate and send your kids to Catholic school knowing that this goes from top to bottom, flabbergasts me.

Everyone in the church from the Pope to the parishioners is guilty of this. And if you attend Mass or donate YOU ARE GUILTY. If you change the name of the church to hippie love cult you can guarantee that EVERYONE INVOLVED, especially one that financed then, would all be in jail.

And everyone needs to see this movie:

Pulled at the last minute due to pressure from White House, the story about Politicos, child molesters, the Catholics (Turns out BOYS TOWN is the breeding ground for the kids the church molests.

the Catholic Church is a long running criminal enterprise and you should be burning the churches down not tossing a few bucks in the collection plate.
