In California, where almost everything is considered toxic, and is therefore regulated or banned by the government, there’s a price to pay. Bay area KRON brings us news that the North Branch Berkeley Public library has been closed down due to the presence of bedbugs in the restrooms, computer areas and reading areas of the facility. Possibly to blame is transport of these critters on University of California, Berkeley students, who have been suffering chronic problems with bed bug infestation in their dorms.
One wonders how this problem will be addressed with the limited arsenal of insecticides available there, and in light of the fact that bedbugs have pretty good resistance to these measures.
Maybe bagging up the library ;-) or heating the interior above 110 degrees F will get the job done. Bedbugsextermination.net provides some information on eradication which might benefit the People of Berkeley, and others who must fight the hordes of invading insects.
Take a break from the news and views to check out this chance sighting of a group of killer whales, scratching themselves in the shallow water of one of the Discovery Islands in British Columbia. The Orca Network posted Chris Wilton’s vid on their Facebook page, Jan 30, 2015. They appear to know the big male Orca personally, as A66, born in 1996.
The beach massage is said to be a behavior specific to this particular group of whales.
We, the people of rural-flyover country, have heard thousands of snide comments from leftists about kissing cousins, incest, banjos, ad nauseam. Columbia University professor, David Epstein has already demonstrated to us all that lefties should be pointing fingers at themselves. He had a four year affair with his adult daughter which went very public about the same time his wife found out, and his facebook page disappeared. In an effort to decipher the first hints of this news, yours truly did some research, and discovered that it is legal in New York state for cousins to marry, but NOT in Kentucky. Apparently it is also OK for an uncle and niece to marry in that state.
A new story of father daughter incest has revealed that it is legal for an adult parent to marry his offspring in the very blue state of New Jersey. The internet is ablaze with a story of a 18 year old woman from the Great Lakes area who intends to move to New Jersey with her father, with whom she had recently reunited, and discovered a sexual attraction. They hope to be married and raise a family there.
Out of nowhere pops a story from the Washington Post, averring that Reggie Love likes women. With the above linked story is a priceless pic of Reggie and Barrie on a date.
The claim is that, during the 2008 campaign, candidate Obama walked in on Reggie Love while he and a lady friend were in bed. This claim comes from Reggie’s yet to be released memoir. What’s the rush on this story? Perhaps Joan River’s comments pricked a little too deeply.
According to the memoir, Obama later in the day referred to this event, saying “Well Reggie, it’s actually not a consolation to me that my campaign for president can help subsidize your love life.”
Reggie’s book is expected to be published by Simon and Schuster in February.
Under experiences of racism, Michelle listed an incident during which person asked her for help getting something from the shelf in a department (Target) store. (It could have NOTHING to do with her height, of course).
If pop culture is on your radar, the Breitbart.com deconstruction of a losing battle in Lena Dunham’s War on Women is worth your time.
Dunham’s best seller “Not That Kind of Girl”, contains a number of departures from reality, as well as a story of sexually abusing her own sister. Among these stories is a claim that she was raped by a prominent college republican.
Breitbart’s John Nolte has investigated the details of her story, and found it to be inaccurate, with the accused not matching Dunham’s descriptive highlights. The named individual, very unlike Dunham’s “memory” of her sex contact, has had to retain a lawyer, and disappear from social media. Memories of the famous Tawanna Brawley case come to mind.
Lena Dunham continues to allow the named individual, who says he never met her, who does not match her physical description, who did not graduate when she said he did, and who did not work where she said he did, to twist in the wind.
Dunham refused to press charges in a claimed case of rape. Either she is lying about rape altogether, or she has allowed a criminal (whose name and description do not match) to remain free to repeat his crimes. Both of these options harm other women.
The roof of the Southside Cremation services building was set ablaze during the creamation of an 800 pound cadaver. The Henrico County, Virginia, facility was able to control the fire and later resumed the remainder of the process. The family of the deceased was not present, but perhaps after this news event, has a clan legend to tell.
“Uncle ______ was sooo big, he set a grease fire at the crematory……..”
While Obama gives away the Ukraine to the ‘U.S.S.R’. (reassembly in progress), the minds of many Americans are focused on this latest puppet show.
The NBA is in the process of removing the LA Clippers from Donald Sterling, and giving the team to Magic Johnson, et al, at bargain basement pricess. Sterling, an 80 + year old billionaire, who behaved as though money could buy everything, humiliated himself and family with a much younger mistress. This woman got a tape of him saying that she could screw any of the players she liked but he did not want her appearing at the NBA games with them. Since the skin coloration of the players was mentioned, it has been deemed that Sterling’s words were worse than domestic violence and concealing the rape of minors.
California does not allow one party to privately record the words or actions of another party without permission. The sanctions against Sterling are being carried out using illegally obtained “evidence”.
Recently tech millionaire, Gurbaksh Chahal escaped more than 40 charges related to allegedly beating his girlfriend for 30 minutes in a San Francisco apartment. The video recorded by a security camera in his apartment was considered private, by California law, and inadmissible as evidence. Supposedly it was unlawfully acquired by the police. CEO Chahal was permitted to remain on the board of the tech company, RadiumOne, but consumer pressures related to their IPO, have caused him to lose that position. The delay in firing Chahal isexplained in an internal memo from the new CEO of RadiumOne.
In 2008, an 18 year old pro-life activist was threatened with a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood for making a tape inside a Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles facility. She had posed as an underage girl, with an adult boyfriend, seeking an abortion. The tape showed her being advised, by a PP employee, to falsify her age. She was told to relinquish the tapes to Planned Parenthood because they were in violation of California’s privacy laws. This forced the 18 year old college student to pull the Youtube videos and in moving Live Action Films’ efforts to the states which do not have such privacy laws.
