News Of The Weird

And this week we have more from the left coast…

In the news:

  • This week the San Francisco City Council passed an ordnance that prohibits smoking tobacco in your own home. However, the ordnance specifically excludes marijuana and only applies to tobacco cigarettes.
  • An election day referendum decriminalized drugs in Portland, so it is no longer a crime to use cocaine, meth and other formerly illegal mind altering substances.

So, we now have it in San Francisco where you can’t smoke a cigarette in your own home but can smoke a joint.

And in Portland, you can snort cocaine as long as you don’t use a plastic straw to do it, because those are illegal.

Who suggested that 2020 couldn’t get any more weird?!

News Of The Weird, Out West

Pimps and communists: if you made this up people would say it was too bizarre.

Seattle Hires A Pimp

A former pimp, who was one of the subjects of a documentary “American Pimp”, has been hired by the city of Seattle to advise it on developing ‘alternatives to policing’.

Andre Thornton is being paid $150,000 to work as a ‘street czar’ to help the city with its problems with police and crime.

Also a self-described genius, when asked about his new job Thornton said, “Black people as a whole have not been in a place to be compensated for their genius or their work for a very, very long time.”

Antifa Candidate Ahead In Portland Polls

Ted Wheeler is the Mayor of Portland and is running for re-election in November.

A recent poll shows that a self-proclaimed Antifa, communist candidate is leading in the race for Portland’s mayor.  Wheeler was the top vote getter in the earlier primary but has been criticized for the way he has handled the rioting that shook Portland for over 100 straight nights this summer.

Sarah Innarone, who has proclaimed “I am Antifa”, is leading in the latest poll conducted by DHM research by over 10%. Innarone has been known to wear a skirt with pictures of Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Che Guevara to campaign events.

Just when you think things can’t get more radical or out of control in Portland, it seems that could be wrong.

News Of The Weird-Education Edition

Schools in Oak Creek, WI will begin classes this year online due to concerns about the coronavirus.

Schools in Oak Creek, WI will begin the school year offering ‘School Day Camp’, for $100/week per child.

“Each school day will have a structured schedule which will include online learning times, homework assistance, recess and outdoor activities, [and] lunch provided” by the Oak Creek School District. The ‘Day Camps’ will run the exact same hours as a normal school day.

Clearly they don’t check the education and IQ of school administrators in Oak Creek, WI.

Crazy Quote Of The Week

This one goes to the head of Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR).  DNR Secretary Preston Cole is telling employees to wear face masks, even when they are at home and even if they are alone.  Really!

In a department email, Cole reminded employees that WI Gov. Evers has mandated masks indoors, unless you are at home. But Cole went even further, saying  “Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff” so that DNR staff can set an example for others.

You can’t make this stuff up.


Stupid Quotes of the Week

Stupid things politicians say (which I realize is redundant in most cases)…

A week in review and as we look back, this past week was full of amusement. And in the interests of being non-partisan we have two entries:

1) President Trump, who while extolling the virtues of our founding fathers during Independence Day, talked about their bravery in seizing the airports during the Revolutionary War (which is dumb because any historian knows the Continental Army already controlled the airfields) and,

2) Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL), ( apparently trying to take over the championship belt previously held by former Rep. Corrine Brown) who said that the laws against making fun of members of Congress should be enforced and people who do that should be prosecuted (she will be retaking junior high civics class in the fall semester)

P.S. Please send bail money for when I’m prosecuted.

News of the Weird

Marianna Flores, a student at U of California-San Diego, is suing the university.

Flores was protesting with a group blocking a major highway in the San Diego area. While blocking the highway, she was injured when she was hit by a car. And so she is suing the university for not keeping her from protesting in the highway.

And, yes, there is a lawyer that has actually taken the case.

As if politics and ‘weird’ aren’t almost synonymous anyway, we bring you this…along with Hillary’s latest comments on patriotism and more quick takes…

News of the Weird

And finally this, which many people may have already suspected about members of Congress… Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera announced she will be a candidate for Congress to replace retiring Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.  And she does have experience that sets her apart from other candidates for the seat in Congress.   Continue reading “News of the Weird and More…”

News of the Weird (education edition):

In another bizarre twist in the politically correct crusade, an Ohio 7th grader was suspended from school for 10 days (!) for ‘liking’ a picture of an airsoft gun on social media.

Zachary Bowlin said “The next morning, they called me down and, like, patted me down and checked me for weapons. Then, they told me I was getting expelled or suspended or whatever.”

Russ Fussnecker, superintendent of Edgewood City Schools, defended the suspension “I assure you that any social media threat will be taken serious, including those who ‘like’ the post when it potentially endangers the health and safety of students

And this wasn’t even an actual gun-it was an airsoft gun. Imagine if–gasp–the kid had a picture of himself and his dad hunting or something.

There is one school superintendent that simply doesn’t have the judgment, and likely not the IQ, to hold the job that he currently holds

News of the Weird: Yale Protestors

College students these days are so sheltered it’s impairing their ability to even protest properly.

 The rich snowflakes at Yale University are protesting how the university is treating one of the unions representing faculty on campus.  Well, of course, protesting has become personal these days so they decided to hold a hunger strike…at the personal home of the University President. But this one was different.  In the flyer announcing the hunger strike and giving instructions for protestors, organizers wanted to make sure that protestors were protected from anything that might cause them any inconvenience or damage their sensitive psyches.  Things like….well, getting hungry.

Yes, so there were special instructions such desperate situations.  If the hunger strikers got hungry they could simply raise their hands and go and get something to eat, and someone would replace them until they ate.  At which time they could come back and rejoin the hunger strike.   

 Oh for the good ‘ol days of protesting…..


News of the Weird: (terrorist edition)

News of the Weird (but totally great):
Muslim terrorists killed by a wild boars

Acording to the chief of a local tribe, three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars.

Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk waiting to ambush Iraqi soldiers, when the boars trampled them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said.

As strict Muslims I bet they never thought they would be done in by too much pork.
