A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Every age is fed on illusions, lest men should renounce life early and the human race come to an end. -Joseph Conrad, novelist (3 Dec 1857-1924)

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Woman caught breastfeeding her hairless cat on a Delta flight

I would have thought a hairless cat from Syracuse would be thrilled to escape to Atlanta this time of year. Cats are allowed on flights, but there is probably some rule about cages but I doubt there is a rule that bans breastfeed a cat.

This could well end up in the Supreme Court! Though I have been mildly disappointed with the court's politicization, I think they may rise to this crisis and be able to figure out how to put this obscene naked cat back in the bag, but I may be worng!

A woman who took a Delta flight recently wasn’t kitten around when she whipped out her breasts and started feeding her hairless cat.

The unidentified female flew from Syracuse, NY, to Atlanta, GA, where she was caught breastfeeding her feline on the plane. A flight attendant told her repeatedly to stop and put her cat back in its cage, however, the woman refused.

YouTube Episode

This is one episode on a YouTube channel about a couple of "van-lifers" who settle in the mountains of Utah, and build a house. Lots of entertaining construction stuff because they have no construction experience and try to do as much as they can themselves. Lately, Allie is pregnant and they are racing to get a Certificate of Occupancy before the birth. They don't make it, and this episode is the story of the birth.

I think they could win some sort of award for the short documentary format with this episode. It really has everything, film-wise: Tension, resolution, perfect videography and editing, excellent sound, relatable characters, dramatic impact, AND it's a documentary! Which are often rather boring to watch.

Does anyone suspect that Ethan Crumbley’s parents might’ve been Trumpsters?

Trumpsters or not, apparently they are nuts. They got $4000 out of an ATM and failed to show for their arraignment. They are now wanted by the FBI and state police. I bet they headed for Canada, which will do them no good. I don't think they have any way to get to a non-extradition country without getting caught. Leaked phone texts make them look very negligent, if not guilty of their manslaughter charges.

They seem to be into guns, so I presume they are armed and dangerous.

You mean the fact that Jennifer Crumbley wrote Fatboy Trump in 2016, thanking him for his support of 2A?

Hmm

Ahh yes the good old sacred second amendment. Bartender….I think I’ll have a double.

I did not know that Rick but it makes perfect sense. Those two shall go down in a flaming spiral as parents of the year. What does one do for a Christmas present for an obviously disturbed child? Why…buy him a semi automatic pistol of course. What could possibly go wrong?

This case has shades of an infamous case in my neck in 1998. Kip Kinkel‘s father bought him a handgun in an attempt to “relate” to his disturbed son. A few days later Kip capped both his parents (thanks for the gun dad) and then proceeded to his school and wreaked havoc. This case from 1998 more less ushered in the modern era of mass school shootings in the US.

In other news I enjoy all you folks company. Ya’ll can be quite funny at times.

The Crumbleys have been arrested. They were hiding out in the dead of the night in a Detroit warehouse, and not on the lamb - per their attorneys. Who's to say they were not longing for a 90s flashback rave party? smile

Rittenhouse was a turning point. Gun advocates have gone from tacitly supporting mass shootings via lax gun laws to actively supporting the shooters themselves

Quote
“Then, there is Oxford, Michigan, with Ethan Crumbley, who shot and killed 4 students and injured 7 others including a teacher for no reason, because liberal school personnel should’ve known Crumbley had a gun, or at least, had access to one, but never bothered to ask. The very reason they told his parents to come to class instead of suspending him immediately, and then they let him go right back into class.”
- Jeanine Pirro, Fox News, SA 12/04/21

Oh the gaslighting! This drunk old hag would be screaming and yelling and spilling her wine all over the place if Dems invoked tougher gun laws in Michigan. crazy

Also Jeanine:

"...should’ve known Crumbley had a gun, or at least, had access to one, but never bothered to ask."

This argument goes directly against the pro-gun argument that she and conservatives make all the time. rolleyes

Well of course he had a gun. That's our Republican platform now, that everybody should be armed and carrying at all times. And not a pistol either: An AR-15.
