The Samuel DuBose videos: Three University of Cincinnati cops filming each other peeing their panties

Bloged in America, Good cop/Bad cop by Gutter Grunt Monday August 10, 2015 at about 10:09 am

Samuel DuBose was shot in the head by Ray Tensing in Cincinnati on Jul19.2015. Tensing was a University of Cincinnati cop; DuBose was a 43-yo unarmed black man. Tensing is now out on bail, facing murder charges; DuBose is dead. This post raises a few interesting points that became apparent to me as I did a frame-by-frame analysis of about 5-9 minutes of the videos produced by the body-cams of three UC cops who were at the scene: Tensing, Phillip Kidd, and David Lindenschmidt

2016 Presidential Candidates’ Dum Bass Comments & Worthless, Pollyanna Promises Contest

Bloged in America, Elections by Gutter Grunt Sunday August 9, 2015 at about 3:30 pm

A new leader!  During the debate last Thursday, Trump jumped out of 3rd place, dove right over 2nd, and landed in 1st!  Not at all unexpected.  Trump’s Aggregate Stupidity Score (ASS) is now 14.  Christy made his first appearance on the scoreboard with a predicted blunder, essentially just from opening his mouth.  He is sure to move up soon.  

Stay tuned to LogoPhere for the entire presidential election circus.

Megalo Man wants to make America great

Tonight’s  debate will not be the last we hear of Donald Trump, and that’s the safest prediction anyone has ever made. But that is not a political prediction; it’s a cultural one.  After all, this is America where clowns, like diamonds and herpes, are forever. 

The political prediction is that tonight’s debate will be the last we hear of Trump as a serious presidential contender, and definitely the last we hear of him as a Republican contender.  And the reason I make the distinction is that Trump, apparently, has the assets to run an independent campaign, much like fellow stinking-rich-flash-in-the-pan-megalomaniac Ross Perot did in 1992 (from poll leader to less than 20% of popular vote) and again in 1996 (self-destructed).

Michael Cohen: Is this the kind of jerk-off you would want to be US Attorney General?

Bloged in America, Elections by Gutter Grunt Wednesday July 29, 2015 at about 12:11 am


Ole’ shit-for-brains

The news is now pretty much viral: Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is a total dick. Total. And he probably knows less about law than I do, which ain’t much, I’ll admit.  But at least I have never stated in an interview with The Daily Beast that “by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse,” implying that there is no law against spousal rape.  Wrong, dude.  Spousal rape is illegal in all 50 states – even South Carolina and Texas. It’s illegal in many other places with horrendous records on civil rights — places like Paupa New Guinea, Turkey, Namibia, and Israel. Maybe Cohen was referring to Botswana or Tajikistan when he implied that spousal rape is legal, or OK, or whatever the hell he was implying.

Photo-tour of the North end of Vancouver Island

Nanaimo - Port Hardy - Holberg -
Ucleulet - Tofino - Nanaimo

This year all of BC has been hot, dry, and on fire, including Vancouver Island.  But in mid-July a line of storms blew in off the Pacific and helped snuff the early summer forest fires, thereby providing a window of opportunity to see the Island before the late summer fires start.  I’ve seen the lower end, but not the remote upper end, the tip of which is N of the 50th parallel — it is still quite light at 10 pm. My cottage is just about where the “N” in “CANADA” is on the map.  I caught the 5:30am ferry from Tsawwassen to Nanaimo, and was in Port Hardy by 1 pm. (BC is not really purple, btw.  It’s sort of burnt umber.)

The Sandra Bland/Brian Encinia encounter: Jim Crow redux gone viral

Would you mind putting out your cigarette?
– Brian Encinia

Before this Sandra Bland tragedy and debacle in Waller County, Texas gets totally out of control, I thought it might be helpful – at least in organizing my own opinions – to put down a few thoughts. I have carefully examined both versions of the arrest vid that were released by the Texas Dept. of Public Safety, which appears to have been named after Robespierre’s 1793 Committee of Public Safety to oversee the French Reign of Terror. Basically, I see the entire “policing effort” of Texas as a reign of terror, particularly for blacks – not unlike many other states.

Humiliating irony or poetic justice?

Bloged in America by Gutter Grunt Friday July 3, 2015 at about 10:16 pm

When I think back over a lifetime of watching politicians humiliate themselves and being humiliated by others, I can think of only one situation where a politician was humiliated by his/her spouse, and you know the situation I’m talkin’ about.  In virtually every case of public humiliation that I can recall — at least the sexual ones — the politician humiliated his spouse; the reverse seems not to happen, although I’m sure there’s plenty of spouses goofin’ around, if you catch my drift.  Of course, when both spouses are politicians, then it’s a whole new set of rules, and have no doubts, Hil was a politician while she was FLOTUS.

Pestilential cops, prosecutors, & judges in the news

Bloged in America, Good cop/Bad cop, Courts by Gutter Grunt Tuesday June 30, 2015 at about 1:54 am

The USSCt is making it a bit harder for cops to brutalize folks and get away with it; a couple of elected judges are facing disciplinary hearings for being dumb basses; a queer prosecutor in Delaware draws an almost-get-out-of-jail card after raping a 16 yo boy; and the Las Vegas family court is a total cess pool, complete with pricks, goof-balls, fat asses, and shit-4-brains cops.  Hey, it’s America, man, enjoy.
