How to Ruin Your Life in Twenty-Five Minutes or Less!


A guy, I hesitate to use the word "man", attempted to use a rural gun range recently. Zonathan Derrell Butler, 29, was refused entry into the Linden Gun Range, southeast of Linden California, because it was not open to the public. Mature individual that he was, he threatened the worker who refused him entrance, and from the parking lot, discharged his .40 cal handgun at least 29 times. He then fled the scene at a high rate of speed. Sheriff's deputies pursued him and managed to catch up after good ol' Z.D. lost control of his vehicle as well and crashed on an arrow straight portion of Highway 4. Did quite the number on his car, too!

His life went from unlimited potential to zero in less than half an hour's time!

He was taken to a nearby hospital for clearance before being booked into San Joaquin County jail, on five felony charges. If you ask me, poor Z.D. is still angry with his parents for naming him Zonathan Derrell.

A Tale of Two Tweets

Or, the Power of the Meme!

I sent out two tweets yesterday. Well, more than that, truth be told but two in particular were kind of interesting. The first:



1 retweet, 6 "likes". The second, about 20 minutes later:



Had the exact same text, superimposed over the exact same picture, but it received a tad bit more attention:

99 Retweets, 145 Likes. Twitter analytics says I got 6,584 "impressions", whatever that means!

That, my friend, is the power of the meme! Go figure!

Quote du jour

Invaluable does not mean the same thing as valuable. Both valuable and invaluable things are precious, but valuable things are value-able, meaning you could assign a value or a price to them, whereas invaluable things cannot be meaningfully valued — they are priceless. A Vacheron Constantin wristwatch is valuable; the Notre-Dame cathedral is invaluable.

Quote du jour

That “ain’t” is pure Biden, too. Biden enjoys mimicking the stereotypical speech patterns of African Americans. He famously told a largely black audience that a Mitt Romney government would seek to “put y’all back in chains!” One wonders where Biden picked up that “y’all” in his natural habitat, i.e., the offices of Delaware-based credit-card companies.

New York Times Publishes Names of People Who Died of COVID-19 on Entire Front Page

Saved themselves the embarrassment of filling the front page with stories they'd have to retract in a day or two, I guess!


At the risk of being accused of "whataboutism", I don't recall the NYT filling the front page of their Sunday paper with the names of H1N1 victims? But it reminded me of something else, towards the end of the Bush Administration. The NYT published the names of all the soldiers who had died in Iraq...in Bush's war! It was a terrible thing, the media decried!~ All those soldiers' lives lost! Nightline did a special edition of nothing but Ted Koppel reading the names of those who had died in Iraq.

"Ted Koppel solemnly read aloud the names of 721 U.S. servicemen and women killed in the Iraq war during an unusual edition of "Nightline" Friday. Koppel's recitation - illustrated with corresponding photo, military branch, rank and age of each of the fallen since March 19, 2003 - occupied the expanded 40-minute program. There was no music, no graphic flourishes. Name followed name, photo followed photo..."

Doonesbury in the "funny papers", printed the list of soldiers killed in the Iraqi war. The "anti-war" movement was flourishing. Cindy Shehan camped outside of Bush's ranch in Texas. The media declared the ultimate right of a woman who had lost a son to combat to protest the war! These anti-war types were the genuine article! And really, really concerned about this...

...up until 2009. A new president...a Democrat president was inaugurated, and like the morning mists burned away by the blazing noonday sun...the anti-war liberals all disappeared! Well, Cindy Sheehan tried to extend her 15 minutes of fame by running for office in California, but no one wanted to interview her anymore, and her brief candidacy was swept away by a tsunami of apathy towards the plight of the U.S. soldier.

Obama ramped up activity in Afghanistan, yet saddled the military with near impossible Rules of Engagement, and the casualty count in Afghanistan started to rise precipitously. All with nary a peep from the anti-war Left. It was as if, liberals used the deaths of Americans to try to score points against their political opponents, but as a rule, just didn't give a damn otherwise!

It appears that the exact same thing is happening here. If somehow Trump can be associated with all these deaths, the liberals hope to score points in November. The "Paper of Record" never ran a front page of H1N1 deaths, or mounting casualties in Afghanistan or calling them "grim milestones" because a liberal was in office. Wouldn't want to embarrass him, don'tcha know?

But "Trump is Hitler", so all's fair!

O my soul, set not thine affections upon rusting, moth-eaten, decaying treasures, but set thine heart upon him who abides forever faithful to thee.

Reaper of the Libs over on Twitter gave us a template to work with. This is what popped into my head!


Showered with Love, Indeed!

My feel good story du jour:
Showered with Love is a nonprofit group. It parks a mobile shower in the cities four times a week. This week, the group also gave people a new pair of shoes. Vans, in Weberstown Mall in Stockton, donated hundreds of shoes after their store manager sent a request to the corporate office.


Cool enough that they provide showers for the homeless, but new shoes, too! Fantastic!
