Delusional: Tracy Kiss, 34, stunned family and friends after having a ruler tattoo inked down her forearm so she could accurately measure the length of her prospective partners’ penises. The sex-minded mom says that she’s looking for a well-endowed boyfriend, and her new body art is “a practical design and tool to enhance my life.” The accompanying photo show 14 “dots” inked from her fingertips up her forearm. All I can say is I hope she is prepared for a lot of disappointment. A lot.
Beer and Cheetos watch: Watched a pretty good movie Saturday. “Spartan” with Val Kilmer The usual “off-the-books” CIA operative gets in over his head stuff. I like Kilmer, loved his “Doc Holiday”, and this is typical of those movies he was making in the late 2000’s to 2016 or so. A really good beer and Cheetos afternoon movie.
Public knowledge: Filed FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests show the “squad”, AOC, Omar, Pressley, Bush, and Tlaib, spent about $325k on private security in 2021. That comes out about &65k each. Since they each make a salary of $174k a year, that’s pretty hefty chunk if you ask me. Figure they must be cutting costs somewhere because they don’t look like they’re missing any meals.
Speaking of thrifty: Stacey Abrams, who hasn’t held office since 2017, spent $1.2m of security and doesn’t have a job except perpetual candidate. I guess she made a good deal with those not-best selling book royalties. She is an “attorney” but as far as I can determine, Abrams does have a law license, but doesn’t practice as a source of income. Hmmmm
Breaker 1-9, you got your ears on : It appears the Canadian drivers have started something across the world. But these sorts of a thing may quickly become a thing of the past. In fact, your driving rights may become non-existent. According to an article written by former U.S. Representative Bob Barr, hidden away in the recently passed infrastructure bill, is a measure to install vehicle kill switches into every new car, truck, and SUV sold in this country. Of course, “law enforcement” would have access to these switches in the case of “exigent” circumstances. You know, like they don’t want you going anywhere. That means “law enforcement” could stop these drivers before they cross county, state, or even imaginary lines. The regulation likely won’t be enforced for five years, so maybe there’s time to do something about this.
Gas 2/8/22. No change. What are you paying?
A what parade: In New Orleans, several cars were burglarized as the “Krewe of Chewbacchus Parade” was underway Saturday night. Residents say they parked their cars near the St. Roch Market building off St. Claude, walked to enjoy the parade, and came back to busted windows around 9 pm Saturday. Victims say they are frustrated about the rise in break-ins in New Orleans, especially during a Carnival event. Another resident, Cornell Foster, commented on NOPD response time. “I called the cops, they haven’t shown up yet. And there’s been four (police cars) that have passed.” And they did just cut $16m from the NOPD budget. Seriously, the ”Krewe of Chewbacchus”?
Too big to fail: Last week the stocks of the parent company of Facebook took a big drop, 26+%. Everybody was talking about all the money Zuckerberg “lost”. He didn’t lose a dime. “Meta” lost value, but the Zuckster didn’t lose a dime. Trust me.
