To quote the immortal Ferris Bueller, “I’m taking the day off.”
I’m taking the day off from the blog because I cannot take the day off from my career. Allow me to explain.
Since I took two weeks vacation during Christmas, the weather has gotten worse – snow is omnipresent here lately – we lost two detectives to other units – bringing the squad number to ten detectives from its usual fifteen – and I have spent the week in court.
Yesterday was my day off, and after coming home from court, I spent much of the day sleeping and shivering. In short, I am physically and mentally exhausted. I don’t feel like blogging, I don’t feel like going to court, and I don’t feel like doing, well, anything.
I don’t think this is the depression seeping back; I think I just need rest. I’ve been averaging five hours’ sleep since the trial started, and I need a day to recharge.
Everything will be back to normal tomorrow, and regular postings will resume. Thanks for your understanding.
President Trump’s physician gave the leftist media a case of teh sadz yesterday when he informed them the president is in very good health – both physically and mentally.
The Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson said during Tuesday’s White House press briefing that President Donald Trump requested, then aced, a cognitive ability exam.
Reporters have suggested for months that Trump is mentally unstable, and NBC’s Hallie Jackson was quick to ask about the president’s mental health during the briefing.
“I had absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability or his — you know, neurological function,” Jackson asserted. “I was not going to do a cognitive exam. I had no intention of doing one. The reason we did the cognitive assessment is plain and simple because the president asked me to do it.”
Naturally, CNN’s most prominent whiny bitch Jim Acosta accused Rear Admiral Jackson of lying about the president’s exam, because bitches gonna bitch.
Speaking of leftist sh*tholes, a group of Californians are lucky to be alive after a speeding vehicle hit a median, went airnorne, and crashed into a building.
A speeding car struck a median and flew into the second floor of a building early Sunday morning, Jan. 14, remaining lodged into a dental office.
The white Nissan Altima was traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on French Street when the accident occurred in the 300 block of E. 17th Street.
The driver hit a raised center median on 17th Street, launching the car into the air. The vehicle struck the 2nd floor of the building and was lodged there, sticking out of the structure as police arrived at around 5:30 a.m.
What could possibly be the reason for a car flying into a building?
“The driver, who admitted to using narcotics, will be admitted to a local hospital for observation,” the news release said.
Wow, shocker. I guess the bright side is the residents can now install a giant bow window.
Seattle is now as awful a place to shop as it is to live.
On January 1, Seattle had several new progressive laws go into effect. Along with mandatory paid sick leave, mandates for employers to post work schedules 14 days in advance, and severe restrictions on short-term rental platforms, Seattle imposed a massive new soda tax — 1.75 cents per OUNCE on sugary drinks.
Costco, famous for selling products in bulk quantities, faces especially stiff price increases. On the previously mentioned pallet of 35 bottles of Gatorade, a list price of $15.99 is taxed $10.34, with a total cost of $26.33.
Signs all over the Seattle stores list the tax separately, and then have another sign offering solutions to the consumer: This item is also available at our Tukwila and Shoreline locations without City of Seattle Sweetened Beverage Tax.
Leftists never met a tax they didn’t like. This tax is actually worse than Philadelphia’s obnoxious beverage fines, but good on Costco for advising their customers to shop outside the city limits.
Meet British man David Worsley. David was vacationing in Africa for some unknown reason, and while there, he contracted salmonella. What happened next will blow your mind… or other regions.
David Worsley was enjoying a holiday to Tunisia with his wife Joanne in July 2014 when his life was turned upside down.
The 59-year-old began suffering from African salmonella, which is potentially deadly, just a couple of days into the holiday. The security guard from Bolton, Lancashire said he lost three stone as he could not keep food down, before waking up one day with ‘excruciating pain’ in his testicle.
Although he was vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea, doctors eventually sent him home – but the swelling continued to worsen. Mr Worsley said he was having a bath when the pressure in his genitals reached breaking point.
He said: ‘I got in the bath and it just exploded. It literally went bang and that was it. (H/T – AOSHQ)
Happy Tuesday, everyone! If you need me, I’ll be wincing and cradling my junk for a few hours.
Social media is not only a cancer eating away at our culture, it is also a rigged game. If you’re a conservative, Twitter, Facebook, and Google want you all to go away.
Before the election season got into full swing, Facebook had already made some mild downgrades to reach. Afterwards, when liberal mainstream media outlets were screaming about Russian ad buys and “fake news,” Facebook systematically reduced the reach of all its pages with each algorithm change. By then, most of us understood where it was going long-term. If Facebook killed every conservative page overnight, there would be a huge outcry. On the other hand, if Facebook slowly strangled us to death, we’d fade away and would people even notice?
That gets to the heart of the biggest problem conservatives don’t realize they have.
Social media IS the new public square. It’s the place you go when you want to reach out and find an audience. …….Except Facebook has for all intents and purposes announced that it’s killing off pages. So much for having a conservative voice there.
The only reason I’m on Facebook was for my book page, and the only reason I’m on Twitter is to promote the blog. Ironically, neither platform drives traffic to either the book or the blog.
As James O’Keefe just revealed in his latest sting, Twitter felt comfortable banning pro-Trump accounts and one of his unwitting sources said, “Yeah you look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck. Then you look and parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then you look for stuff that matches that stuff.”
It’s good to know that if you’re conservative, you can spend years building up an audience on Twitter and the liberals at Twitter can arbitrarily throw you off their service because they decide they don’t like your views.
It won’t be long before WordPress starts doing the same. My blogs have been suspended before for wrongthink, and I can absolutely see them graduating to banning certain sites altogether.
Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of The Cranberries, has died at the age of 46. It’s only Tuesday, and this is already a terrible horrible no good very bad week.
The band confirmed O’Riordan’s death in a brief statement, “Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session.”
The statement continued, “No further details are available at this time. Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
Dolores had one of the most beautiful voices in all of music. She and Shirley Manson of Garbage are hands down my all-time favorite female vocalists. The loss of Dolores is devastating; she truly was one of the greats.
No cause of death was revealed. The Irish Times notes that the Cranberries were forced to cancel tour dates in 2017 due to O’Riordan’s ill health; the band cited “medical reasons associated with a back problem.” O’Riordan had previously been diagnosed as bi-polar.
I sincerely hope her psychological issues were not a factor in her death. Mental health is not something to take lightly; believe me, I know that personally.If you are having trouble, talk to someone; seek the help you need.
My favorite song of hers is listed below the fold…

Judy Sugar, a former teacher at Westchester, New York’s Mary McLeod Bethune Junior and Senior High School is suing the school district after she was dismissed for filing a police report of sexual assault.
On May 14, 2015, she claims a student “accosted” her, touching her legs and backside with his exposed penis as she bent over a microscope.
The head teacher at the school reportedly told Sugar that if she wanted to file a report, she could stop by Dobbs Ferry police headquarters on her way home instead of calling officers to the school. But Sugar said she was worried about the safety of other students and of other teachers, particularly the recently hired “young, attractive” music instructor with whom the student was in class. So she called the cops who said they would respond to the school immediately.
Upon hearing this, the complaint states, Thompson reportedly said, “You called the police?” Almost immediately after that, Thompson allegedly told the teacher to leave school grounds and that insinuated job was in jeopardy.
The school district claimed she’d violated their policy barring teachers from calling the police to report a crime on school grounds.
Can you imagine firing someone for reporting a sexual assault by a student which happened on school grounds? Apparently the #MeToo effort has not yet filtered down to New York.
What happens when a student walks in and tries to pull a Columbine? Is it okay to call 911 then? I sincerely hope Ms. Sugar wins her lawsuit, and bankrupts the entire school district.
An idiotic government drone sent out a ballistic missile alert to the citizens of Hawaii Saturday, causing mass panic on the islands. The alert was a false alarm.
A false ballistic missile threat alert was sent to all cell phones in Hawaii on Saturday morning, sending the state’s 1.4 million residents and hundreds of thousands of visitors into a panic for more than 30 minutes until emergency officials confirmed the message was sent in error.
The cause of the false alarm? A state emergency management employee apparently pushed the wrong button.
While city and military officials took to social media within 15 minutes to quell fears and say the message was sent in error, it took state emergency management — which sent out the message in the first place — 38 minutes to send out a “false alarm” alert to cell phones.
Always remember, the millions of do-nothing government parasites have nothing but your best interests at heart… right after they’ve had their morning coffee.
