Saturday

1. Ladies should not swear:

2. Useless nothings, total waste of space and our money usually, or someone else’s:

I had an ulterior motive. I wanted to calculate just how much Kathleen Kennedy (and her commensurate politics) cost Disney and its shareholders in terms of profits/market value. I wanted to see what percent of the Star Wars franchise’s value was destroyed by politics. Because as I’ve stated before, I’m getting mighty sick and tired of politics being mixed in with my fun. Thus my hope is to attach a price tag to “being woke” and ruining everybody’s movie-going fun with SJW politics so that the morons in Hollywood might get a clue before they go out of business.


Another of these beeches:

Anita Sarkeesian is a dishonest, selfish, hate-filled monster, and any corporation that would voluntarily associate itself with her could not be trusted to respect anyone’s freedom.

And this one – good riddance, peace at last for us:

After starting to write as a hobby in her early 30s, Levy published three novels in the 1990s which brought her positive reviews and steady sales.

But her fourth novel, Small Island, launched her into the literary big league, winning the 2004 Orange prize, the Whitbread book of the year and the Commonwealth Writers’ prize, selling more than 1m copies around the world and inspiring a 2009 BBC adaptation.

3. Photographing this black leopard:

4. The bstds need deselecting now – let them go and join their own leftwing party:

5. Bait and switch:

It looks like companies are getting sneaky with high-tech shopping apps, using them to bait you into visiting their stores or Web sites, then switching prices on you.  This and other tactics have been used online for well over a decade, as this 2005 report shows.  Now Target appears to be doing something similar.

6. SpaceX:

7. Last but not least, Gov Huckabee on Dems in charge:

    Where the “principalities” reside?

    Also this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlRVMNVXm3Q Notice “Altar to an alien god” and pulling out ??? from the shadows. Spooky stuff and food for thought.

    They don’t care. You don’t own a movie studio (or a TV network or a newspaper) to make money. You own such things in order to have, and to exercise, power.
