LOLCat of the Day

You Can't Make An Omelette Without Shooting Some Drug Dealers

The Phillipines has had more than enough of the scourge of drugs.
The head of the Philippines police has said more than 1,900 people have been killed during a crackdown on illegal drugs in the past seven weeks.

(Phillipine President Rodrigo Duterte) won the presidency with his hard-line policy to eradicate drugs.
Here's my favorite part.
He has previously urged citizens to shoot and kill drug dealers who resisted arrest, and reiterated that the killings of drug suspects were lawful if the police acted in self-defence.

He also threatened to "separate" from the UN after it called his war on drugs a crime under international law.
Needless to say, human rights activists, living in their gated communities, far away from drugged-out prostitutes jerkily staggering down the street in the morning, put down their lattes long enough to register protests. The US, of course, is siding with the drug dealers and addicts people who follow alternative lifestyles, because, hey, everyone has to decide what's right for them. There's no such thing as right or wrong for everyone.
The US has said it is "deeply concerned" by the increase in drug-related killings.

Sometimes the right thing to do is to be taken to a morgue. Who are you to judge?

Now That Social Decay Has Hit Whites

... we might start to examine it more closely without all the obscuring racial nonsense.

I'm listening to Hillbilly Elegy right now. It's a fascinating book describing the white poor of Appalachia. Coincidentally, I ran across this essay on the travails of the white underclass which was excellent. Here's a tidbit.
In McCreary County, Kentucky, the last fifteen years have brought a “75 percent increase in the mortality rate for white women between the ages of 35 and 59, one of the highest in the nation,” according to the paper. The story of death in this rural county, which is 91 percent white, is fraught with drugs, suicide, violence, and broken families.
It is the long-held position of The Scratching Post crack editorial staff that the rejection of objective morality, particularly the rejection of traditional marriage as a foundational institution, is the primary root cause of our social pathologies. While the pathologies seemed localized in the black community, where illegitimacy is about 75%, the conversation was easily derailed by shouts of "Racism!" Now that the same scourges are coming to white communities in quantities sufficient to warrant mainstream media attention, maybe we'll be able to discuss it.

I Thought We Had Child Labor Laws

Dig this.
WHEAT RIDGE, CO (KDVR/CNN) - Donald Trump's campaign has some young blood among its leadership.

And by young, that means 12 years old.

In one of the most important counties in swing state Colorado, Donald Trump is relying on 12-year-old Weston Imer, who runs the Jefferson County operation for the Trump campaign.

Jefferson County is one of the most populous counties in Colorado and is part of the Denver metro area.
That's your man, Trumpkins. The one that is such a great leader, businessman and negotiator. He's got a 12-year-old running his campaign in a key part of a crucial swing state. If I didn't know better, I'd say he was trying to lose.

Butter In Coffee

... is actually pretty good.

One of our sons and his girlfriend are trying the Bulletproof Diet. I haven't looked it up, but I'm sure it's out there somewhere on the Interweb Tubes. You can only eat from 2 PM to 8 PM, but you can start your day with buttered coffee.

Lunatic diets aside, the coffee is tasty. We've got a Keurig which, after trying just about every cup I can get my hands on, produces coffee only a step up from instant. It can, however, heat water for a French Press.

The buttered coffee can be made easily in the French Press. You take a teaspoon of butter, put it on the bottom of the press and then put your coffee grounds on top of that. You then convince the Keurig to put the appropriate amount of hot water into the press and proceed normally. The butter melts, but doesn't form a layer at the top. Maybe it gets smushed into tiny particles by the press.

In any case, the resulting concoction is delish! Try it sometime.

Maybe If Trangendered People Were Dying Of Overdoses

... we'd pay attention.

This was pretty surprising. It's not causing much controversy like letting men into women's restrooms, but still.

Losing Turkey

The horror show that is US foreign policy is no longer moving in slow motion. We've either done it or will soon do it - move our nuclear weapons out of Turkey.
Ankara’s recent closeness with Moscow and worsening relations with Washington post failed military coup might be a reason that the US has started transferring nuclear weapons stationed in Turkey to Romania.
Turkey is a member of NATO, at least for now. This isn't Syria or Libya or Iraq, this is a large, populous, powerful country that has been a major ally for decades. How long before we lose our air base there?

What is this clown thinking?
