News Roundup


...in those halcyon days before the Safety Nazis took over.

Let’s kick off with some Crime News:


...in which we play “guess the race of the bad guy”.


...nothing to do with all the rampant theft and looting, of course, it’s just pure racism in action.  Bonus:  guess in whose electoral district this is happening?


...good grief, why didn’t we think of that before? I bet his law prof is so proud of him.


...can somebody ‘splain to me why we shouldn’t inflict some cruel and unusual punishment on his murderous ass… oh yeah, that Constitution thing.  Damn.

And in the Great Cultural Assimilation Project:


...I’d show some sympathy, but it’s NYFC.


...on the bright side, they might have done this to a Texan.
#ThanksTexGovAbbott


...sheesh, where do they think they are:  Minneapolis?


...”racists” being just about every Irishman not in government.

In Medical News:


And also:


...and when you’ve lost Stephen Fry, you’ve pretty much lost the war.

And now, some Supernatural Sex News:


...just kidding:  they really are fucking crazy [sic].  Pity the poor ghosts.  And speaking of the insane:


...I’m just amazed that people are crazy enough to give money to FJB at all.  On the other hand, it’s his last chance to have some cash lying around when his ass leaves the White House.

In this Friday’s (link-free) 

      

And in Sorta-ShowBiz News:


...frankly, I’ve seen curvier ironing-boards.  But hey, judge for yourself:

…”stunning”?  STUNNING?

Now here’s stunning:


...take it away, chica:

And on that truly stunning note, we end the news roundup.

Good News / Bad News

Good news for us wot loves those internal combustion engines in our cars, bad news for EVs and their watermelon supporters:

Rivian Lays Off 10% Of Workforce As Lucid Production Underwhelms

EV startup stocks Rivian (RIVN) and Lucid (LCID) sank Thursday after both companies reported fourth-quarter earnings and revenue late Wednesday, and announced they are not ramping up production in 2024.

Rivian reported Wednesday a loss of $1.36 per share in Q4 with sales doubling to $1.31 billion. Wall Street expected a loss of $1.35 and revenue totaling $1.28 billion. Looking to 2024, Rivian said it expects production of 57,000 vehicles, remaining flat compared with 2023.

The company also announced that it predicts vehicle deliveries in Q1 2024 to be about 10%-15% lower than in Q4 2023 and that it is laying off 10% of its salaried workers.

Along with Rivian, Lucid reported Wednesday a Q4 loss of 29 cents per share with revenue falling 39% to $157 million. Analysts predicted a loss of 30 cents and sales hitting $180 million. Lucid produced 8,428 vehicles in 2023 and delivered 6,001.

For 2024, the company forecasts producing 9,000 vehicles, well below Wall Street’s expectations of more than 14,000.

Yeah, nobody wants to buy them now (even at subsidy-lowered prices), and still fewer will buy them when said subsidies disappear and the costs of these boutique vehicles assume a trajectory opposite to Rivian/Lucid’s share prices.

And the children will laugh and play, in the playgrounds to which they were driven in their mommies’ gasoline-powered SUVs:

And the oil rigs will pump again, their oil being carried along the completed XL pipeline, filling up cars will no longer require a letter of credit from the banks, natural gas will flow into people’s houses in greater amounts and at lowered prices, windmills and solar panel farms will rust away and fall over, and nuclear power generators will become a feature of every town in the land.

And the watermelon socialists who supported the whole Global Warming Climate Cooling Change© pack of lies will dangle limply from lamp poles in many streets, those that did escape the Air Pinochet helicopter flights, said choppers fueled with the cheaper avgas and therefore able to fly many missions…

Hey, a man can dream, can’t he?  So mote it be.

News Roundup

And speaking of friends not worth Smirnoff:


...just for kicks, we need a couple of Christian families to ask for an opt-out too, based on… ummmm I think it’s called… equal protection?


...like ordinary old headaches weren’t enough?


...at the moment, the ANC government is too busy offering support to Hamas to worry about the White Man’s Magic.

And speaking of the latter:


1.) I don’t think that many Pals live in Gaza in total, and even if there are, 2.)
#Don’tCare #TheyStartedIt #Fuckem
.

And the Great Cultural Assimilation Project News:


...there should be a LOT more of this.  (Not the slashy-slashy, the shooty-shooty.)


...could somebody pass the news on to this asshole?

And speaking of “shocking”:


...newsflash:  we never are.  Go peddle your panic somewhere else.


...for once, they got it right.  And proud we are of it, too.


...the Catholic church was unavailable for commentNo doubt they were too busy hosting the funeral of a trannie atheist.


...her half-dozen OnlyFans subscribers must be distraught.  A quick reminder of whom we speak:


No man should;  but at least one man apparently has, as she recently popped a sprog:

…to prevent mass vomiting.

And speaking of the unspeakable:


...I had no idea that Pedo / Paedo World even had a hierarchy.  So what’s Joe Biden’s title, then?

And in the Travel Department:


...don’t go to:  1) Monaco, 2) London or 3) New York City.  Ask me how I know this.

And in today’s

  


...I imagine that the Hotness Competition among female firefighters is not that strong, but lessee anyway:

I guess her background as a porn actress has helped her in her new career.

And that’s the news.

Monday Funnies

So let’s get at it:


…comment from an Italian friend:  “You need to boil them first.”

And on that topic:  last week’s “Spank That Botty” theme was quite popular, so guess what?

MOAR BOTTY!

I know what y’all are thinking.  Stop it.  Go to work.

(“This [mother] drinks it, that one doesn’t.”  So much for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.)

And speaking of French wisdom:


...little late to the party, mes amis, but à bas les Vertes!  (Couldn’t have put it better myself.)

Speaking of Greens, and their Global Warming Climate Cooling Change© agenda:


...ah fucking hell, not this old chestnut again.  This was supposed to happen back in 1975, when all the Smart Set was convinced a new Ice Age was upon us.  Now that Covid has failed, Global Warming has morphed into Climate Change and nobody cares about either, here comes the Collapsing Gulf Stream again.  Can I suggest that if it doesn’t collapse next year, all the scientific alarmists be scourged then hanged in the public square?  Show of hands…

And speaking of capital punishment:


...someone tell me why people like this should not be broken on the rack, then beheaded.  I need a good laugh.

Next:  a parent who gets the picture.
...and good for her, say I.  Hope she’s got a gun or two floating around, in case of looters.  But she’s from Utah, so...


...and in other breaking news:  Sherman Sacks Atlanta.

In Sex Wars:


...no.

In Medical News:


...keyword:  Mexico.  Also:  “…all of whom had undergone cosmetic surgery like breast implants or butt lifts”.

In Serious Crime News:


...see, if he’d only stopped at three...


...and given who it was, our Potternerd should be thankful they didn’t shoot him dead on the spot.  Although the shooting should have been confined to the fraidy-cats who called the rozzers on the poor kid.

In the Travel / Entertainment Dept.:


...and here I thought that “themed cocktails” was just another term for hookers in fancy dress.


...wait:  a fireball?  In a water park?  Does not compute.

TAYLOR Swift and Travis Kelce are on course to become
the richest power couple in entertainment
...BFD.  If Taylor Swift married some starving folk singer in Memphis, they’d still be the “richest power couple in entertainment”.

And now for the ever-popular

And to finish this off, a stroll down :


...oh well, I report, you decide:

Incidentally, when did “42” become middle-aged?  Even when I was 29 (and not 69), I thought 40-year-old broads were sexy, not middle-aged.

But we can discuss all that another time, because that’s the end of the news.
