Another Blood-Curdler

As Glenn Reynolds puts it so often, putting your kids into the public school system is tantamount to child abuse.  Read this horrorshow:

The cops had the apartment building manager knock on the family’s door. Jade answered and the cops told her she shouldn’t be home alone. Jade started crying and asked to call her dad, McMurry says. But the cops wouldn’t allow it. They did allow her to change into warmer clothes, since they were going to take her away for an interrogation.

When McMurry returned from Kuwait, she faced two felony charges of child abandonment. She turned herself in and spent 19 hours in jail before being released on bail.

Long story short, almost a year later—she was suspended without pay the entire time— McMurry’s case came to trial. Brunner claimed to be on a prearranged vacation. McMurry, eager to get the case heard, allowed the trial to proceed without him.

The trial took four days. The jury deliberated for five minutes and found McMurry not guilty.

Unlike many stories of this type, this one ends well:  the mother is suing the shit out of the Stasi cops, and a judge has denied them “qualified immunity” (whereby cops can do whatever the fuck they want without fear of penalty).

But read the whole thing, keeping all guns out of reach.

About Yesterday

This past Sunday was a rare event:  New Wife prepared her homemade fish ‘n chips, while I did my bit by drinking some  quite a bit  okay a lot of British ale.

The result of all this was that I neglected to post the regular Monday Funnies feature which, as I was going to break with tradition and make it a XXX-Monday Funnies, was probably A Good Thing.

The regular feature will resume next week.

News Roundup

News, like Nancy Pelosi’s drink problem, barely worth commentary.

once again the really interesting thing about this is that over one third of the people think that President Braindead is doing an okay job.

dog bites man news:  socialists have never known how an economy works.

oh yes it can.  Forever.

and in solidarity, I bought a box of Frosted Flakes for the first time in nearly twenty-five years.

when as any fule kno, the correct acronym is LGBTOSTFU.

I think I’d need a thousand-odd words to write that article, myself.

From the Heart Of Stone Dept.:

and stop that laughing.

Almost as good, from the Dept. Of Irony:

imagine walking in Washington D.C.  What idiots.

anyone who’s ever worked in retail will understand this one.

anyone who has ever tried to find parking in an English village will know exactly how this came about.

not surprising, as SNL hasn’t been funny since the 1990s.




Nice that we’re all here to bear witness to the Fall…

“Dear George”

…if your wife (the only good thing ever to come out of Afghanistan, btw) is all dressed up to go out to a formal family dinner, the least you could do is put on a fucking tie.

It’s not like you don’t know how, as evidenced here:
