NYC Pink

Cattin' it up:

Teenage girls at one New York high school are upset after an 18-year-old boy who identifies as “nonbinary” — neither male nor female — was crowned prom queen earlier this month.

After Matthew Crisson was named prom queen of Manhattan’s La Guardia High School, some of his female classmates took to social media to complain about the fact that both the prom king and queen were boys. “It just sucks that men win everything and we thought we at least deserve that,” one girl said.

That Facebook post was removed after La Guardia parent Mona Davids notified the school. “They were very catty and negative comments about something so wonderful and positive,” Davids told the New York Post. “It was very alarming to me, considering what happened in Orlando and how these things can get out of hand.”

“Being prom queen was, like, the first time I actually, like, stepped out of my comfort zone,” Crisson told Fox5 NY. Photos from his crowning show Crisson wearing a yellow dress with a flower crown perched atop his shaved head.


You're probably thinking that we've somehow detoured into an episode of the Twilight Zone. Nope, this is just the end result of eight years of Leftist rule. If Hillary gets into office and this nonsense continues, it'll likely produce a societal schism and a series of rapid-fire secessions, possibly triggering a Second Civil War. That's what Leftists are good at: dividing people, sowing anarchy, and tearing nations apart. In fact, it's the ONLY thing they're good at.

Boy! We Sure Do Hate Private Businesses

But love Criminals

Businesses that ask a job applicant about his or her criminal history during the hiring process could be fined and forced to pay the applicant up to $500 under a new law being considered by city leaders.

A Los Angeles City Council committee backed a plan Tuesday to penalize businesses that weed out applicants based on criminal convictions.

I'm all for giving someone a second chance when it comes to such things (I know that sounds crazy coming from a Cop), but I do think that an employer should be able to know if the person sitting in front of them has been convicted of multiple counts of theft, (sexual)assault, or other violent crimes. Let's face it, people make mistakes, and according to our judicial/penal system, they have "paid" for their crimes. However, if you have a long criminal history, you should not expect to get a job that doesn't involve asking someone if they want fries with that. Like one person in the article, I see a cottage industry springing up:

Councilwoman Nury Martinez also worried a proposed reward system for whistle blowers who complain about hiring practices at a company would encourage an environment of “bounty hunters.”

I arrested a guy for trafficking cocaine and he was on disability for ADHD. Do you think this guy and others like him will go out looking for a job? Or, will he go around to businesses filling out applications in hopes of getting turned down and then turning them in for the $500.00 reward? Like many of the "Discrimination" claims, the company will be guilty until proven guilty. A few years from now, they will be wondering why they can't attract new jobs to the city. I'm sure they will come to a logical conclusion to why that is, and I will grow wings and fly.

Brownies, Blackies, Whateveries...

Zero tolerance strikes again:

On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood. A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was "racist," the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment.

The police officer spoke to the student, who is 9, said the boy's mother, Stacy dos Santos, and local authorities. Dos Santos said that the school overreacted and that her son made a comment about snacks, not skin color.

"He said they were talking about brownies. Who exactly did he offend?" dos Santos said.


Good thing they weren't serving Chef's Salty Chocolate Balls...

WTF

Marine Corps to remove 'man' from 19 job titles

/sigh

As Mark Steyn recently stated, "when reality and delusion duke it out, bet on reality every time." The reality: women are incapable of meeting the physical and emotional demands of soldiering.

I'm not talking about fighting, I'm talking about SOLDIERING. Anyone who has been there knows the difference and knows exactly why the above statement is true. I've seen it first-hand. But go ahead and get good men killed with your stupid little political games. I'm only glad I've no children serving in the Corps and all my friends have long since retired. Stupid twats.

The EU-Progressive Paradigm

Bruce Thorton nails it in this article at FPM:

Millions of citizens both in the US and in Europe have been watching these developments and living with the baleful consequences that the hypocritical, smug progressive and EU elites seldom encounter in their daily lives. This long-festering anger and resentment of those who smear them as stupid racists, neurotic xenophobes, and fearful “haters,” has now burst to the surface of political life. People can see that the “we are the world,” “global village” cosmopolitanism enriches and empowers the political, cultural, and business elites, but passes on to the people the risks of careless and often deadly immigration policies, and the economic dislocations of a globalized economy. They see that coastal fat cats, who can afford the higher taxes and the costs of environmental regulations, care nothing for the flyover-country working and middle classes pinched by higher electric and gasoline bills. People who live in tony enclaves of white professionals and hipsters support unfettered immigration, while others have to live with the crime and disorder that comes from thrusting into their midst people from very different cultures and mores, including some who have a divine sanction to kill the same people who have welcomed them in.

In short, millions of ordinary people in America, England, France, and many other Western nations know that the paradigm of transnational hegemony and technocratic rule created not a utopia, but an arrogant privileged class that believes it is superior and thus entitled to boss other people around and lecture them about backward superstitions and bigotry. And it looks like these average citizens have had enough.


But seriously, the jokes are just writing themselves...

Clever

Fine Dust Delusion

The latest environmental boogieman making the rounds in Asia is "fine dust." It seems to be a catch-all for everything from emission particulates to construction site dirt. The South Korean Environment Ministry, roughly equivalent to our own EPA boondoggle, are busily proposing solutions for this non-existent problem, all the while publishing reams of scare literature and fright commercials for television in an attempt to whip the Eloi into a frenzy of ignorant panic. Recently, however, they stepped right smack on their own metaphorical dick:

The government said that emissions from diesel engine cars are the main culprit of locally produced fine dust. Adding that worn-out diesel cars running in the country are the first thing that should be avoided, it said that it would gradually cut down the advantages given to diesel car owners.

The decision came after President Park Geun-hye’s comments that “automobiles are the key cause of fine dust, which underlines the need for environmentally friendly cars,” during a Cabinet meeting on May 10.

In that vein, the Environment Ministry proposed last month a plan during a ministerial meeting to increase the price of diesel. The ministry said “by raising the (diesel) price to the similar level of gasoline, the number of diesel cars running in the city will naturally go down and become similar to cars powered by gasoline.”

As soon as the price hike plan was revealed, the government was criticized for being self-contradictory as there had been a lack of explanation for the connection between the rising level of fine dust and the use of diesel cars.

In 2009, the government had designated diesel cars as eco-friendly cars for its good fuel efficiency. In order to boost the sales of diesel cars, the government also began exempting at least 100,000 won of environmental improvement charges for those who drove diesel cars, along with a discount advantage at public parking lots. As a result, the number of diesel car purchasers skyrocketed, accounting for half of the newly registered vehicles in 2015.


Diesel is good... until we say it isn't. Idiotic moves like this only serve to further demonstrate the fallacy of creating a bureaucracy whose job is to manage the unmanageable. When one Threat to Humankind™ is discredited, they'll simply invent another out of the air... or the dirt, in this case.

Takedown!

Joy

Get Lost

The Brits told the EU to fuck off. Good for them.

Now the real conflict starts, as the plutocrats and oligarchs in the EU leadership try to find a way to nullify the vote. We should watch closely; this could easily become the kindling for another Continental war.

News of the Norks

Yeah, everybody's favorite Krazy Kommies are up to it again:

A North Korean envoy said that she's "very pleased" about the "success" of recent North Korean ballistic missile launches.


They seem to have very low standards for "success"...

Early Wednesday Pyongyang test-launched two Musudan projectiles known to have a range between 1,800 and 2,500 miles, and capable of targeting Japan.

Seoul's joint chiefs of staff said the first missile, launched at 5:58 a.m., traveled about 90 miles before exploding in mid-air, South Korean newspaper Kukmin Ilbo reported. The second projectile, which was fired at 8:05 a.m., traveled for 250 miles before falling in the East Sea, or the Sea of Japan.


OOOhh! Aaahhh! I can buy a better bottle rocket at the local fireworks stand.

Choe added, "Now if the United States pressures us with a nuclear war, we can confront them confidently, which also makes us very pleased."


Yeah... that's, uh, that's what we're planning. No. Really.

There's a proud tradition here in Texas. There's a college called Texas A&M which every year has these huge rallies and bonfires where they dance around like excited screech monkeys when it's time for them to play the University of Texas on the grid iron. They posture and threaten and generally beat the drums until nobody can get a wink of sleep.

The University of Texas, however, completely ignores them. For UT it's a non-event, because it's an irrelevant game against an irrelevant school. The Norks, much like Aggies, are basically overly-aggressive puppies; it's best just to lock them in the bedroom and ignore them. Until they poo on the carpet, then it's Ass-Beatin' Time -- with some Rub-Nose-In-Poo amendments for clarity of intent. The Norks should be very careful they don't poo on the carpet.

Stick!



Smells like a stick! Looks like a stick! With Real Wood™!

Perhaps I'll just walk out to the back yard and get a stick... and it won't set me back eight clams.
