Thousand Oaks gunman posted pro-gun-control message on social media

with 85 comments

A Facebook post published to his account around the time of the attack said, “I hope people call me insane… (laughing emojis).. wouldn’t that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah.. I’m insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is ‘hopes and prayers’.. or ‘keep you in my thoughts’… every time… and wonder why these keep happening…,” a spokeswoman for the company confirmed.

I’m sure the same sort of people who think that a pizza restaurant in a SWPL part of DC was secretly trafficking in child sex slaves will say it’s a “deep state conspiracy.”

The new McDonald’s experience

with 157 comments

I walked in, and there was this section of eight huge self-service kiosks with touchscreens.

I was able to choose exactly what I wanted, and then pay for it with a credit card. I got a receipt with my order number on it printed real big so even someone with bad vision could easily see it. This was a massive improvement over the old method where I had to wait in a line and then give my order to a surly unhelpful cash register person.

Shortly afterwards, my order was called.

And it was only $2.18 for two hamburgers. Anything I might have cooked at home would have been a lot more expensive. How can they stay in business with prices so low?

The first hamburger was delicious in its own right, but I decided to experiment on the second hamburger by adding hot sauce to it. Yum! Spicy!

The only downside is that McDonald’s gives you the order in a bag with their logo stamped on it all huge. Nothing screams “PROLE!” more than a McDonad’s bag. So the secret to McDonad’s takeout is to bring your own bag with you. An npr totebag would be perfect for this purpose. No one would suspect that within the most SWPL of bags there was actually the most prole culinary treat.

Republicans’ Pennsylvania problem

with 59 comments

Pennsylvania with its large prole white population (as well as other demographically similar Rustbelt states) was the key to Trump winning the election in 2016.

But the prole whites in Pennsylvania did not turn out for Republicans yesterday. (I am not sure, yet, if they just stayed home, or if they voted for Democrats.)

The prole whites in Pennsylvania are not motivated by the traditional Republican messages of banning abortion, lowering taxes for the top 1%, and union busting. Prole whites in Pennsylvania are not as religious as the prole whites in the Midwest or the South, and they have a long tradition of being sympathetic to the Franklin D. Roosevelt type of liberalism.

I believe that Trump’s focus on immigration, and merely being the guy that elites hate the same way that they hate all prole whites, is what carried the state for him.

But obviously, no one in the Republican Party knows how to tap into non-religious prole white populism. And this is even true for Trump, who did it by accident rather than because he’s an expert at understanding our nation’s demographics and social divisions.

Waiting for the comments where people angrily explain to me that my analysis is wrong.

I used to go to the one on Mill Avenue in Tempe, Arizona (which is no longer there). It was an OK place to buy a hamburger and french fries. Maybe wings. I think they had a steak sandwich. I don’t remember eating anything else there.

The waitresses were nice.

I haven’t been to a Hoooters in 17 years. I feel sad about that.

Fight over a parking space

with 37 comments

Lot’s of stupidity and proleness here.

Two women steal the fat guy’s parking spot.

Fat guy gets out of his car to let them know he’s pissed that his spot was stolen. Women ignore him. (He probably should have let bygones be bygones and just went in search of another spot.)

Fat guy, pissed off, fake-kicks at someone else’s car. (Looking at the video, I don’t think he actually made contact with the car.)

The shorter of the two women then runs up to the fat guy and punches him in the face. At this point in the confrontation, the fat guy was walking away. Physically attacking someone who is walking away is a legally unjustified escalation.

He goes a little overboard in defending himself.

But then short woman gets back up and attacks him again while he is trying to walk back to his car.

Fat guy pushes here away again and defuses the situation by getting into his car and driving away.

No one is blameless here, but I think the women, especially the short woman who punched him, have more blame than the fat guy.

Proles love America

I was in Staten Island this weekend, and there were American flags everywhere. Yes, it was the end of July 4th week, so people were being extra patriotic, but back in Manhattan there are no flags anywhere. Except one building with two flags on top of it, but I am sure that a prole superintendent placed them there.

Proles love America. Elites love being elite. Liberal elites hate America because they believe that America is a racist country, and racism is the most evil thing in the world.

Grandma has a tramp stamp

The approximately 60-year-old woman on the elevator (in a white-collar office building) with me had a circular tattoo on her upper back.

Yes, I know that technically, to be a tramp stamp, it has to be on the lower back, but who knows how many other tattoos she has that I couldn’t see?

Yes, we need to do something about dumb proles who borrow money for vacations

Many commenters’ reaction to the previous post was joyous schadenfreude that some of the dumb proles would face financial ruin when they lose their job and can’t pay back the 20%+ interest rate loan for their unnecessary vacation.

You should be ashamed of yourselves. People are born stupid because of their genes, they don’t magically become smart because of life lessons learned. Don’t become an SJW who thinks that with the right “education” they will become great scientists, only replacing college education with school-of-hard-knocks education.

Furthermore, susceptibility to peer pressure is also genetic, related to the personality factor called “agreeableness.” Only those with low agreeableness (like Donald Trump) are able to resist the siren call of peer pressure that says they are a loser unless they go on an expensive vacation.

Only people with high IQ and low agreeableness have true free will, the rest of the masses need to be benevolently directed towards self-beneficial behavior and not be handed nooses that they can use to hang themselves.

And then when the economy crashes because everyone is over-levered and financial institutions have to be bailed out again because they are too big to fail, it’s YOUR TAXES that will be used to pay for the bailouts! So yes, you are doing yourself a favor by supporting laws that protect the dumb proles from themselves.

People buying vacations on credit

Article at Marketwatch about new finance companies like Affirm which allow people to buy all sorts of crap they don’t need on installment plans, with usurious rates of interest.

The article provide a quote from a “financial expert”:

Still, financing a vacation is “a terrible idea all around,” Podnos said. “It’s one thing to finance your education or home purchase, or even a car purchase in some situations … but to finance a vacation is to me just insane. If you can’t afford to pay for your vacation out of cash on hand, don’t take a vacation.”

But it doesn’t go far enough. This is why we need laws against usury. Not only to protect the proles from themselves, but too many proles leveraged up to their eyeballs increases the riskiness of the entire economy and can lead to severe recessions or even depressions. And that’s true even when proles lever up to buy more worthwhile long-term assets like houses and college degrees. Well, a college degree isn’t an asset because it can’t be sold.

This is an example of where the libertarian model of economics fails.
