Sunday postings

Folks, I’ve got some things going on today and tomorrow, so I’m not going to be posting anything Sunday. I’ll be back Monday, although that might just be the photo posts that you normally get on Sundays.
Also, there will be changes happening to the appearance of the blog very soon. I got an email from my hosting service saying that the theme I’m running now will be incompatible with their newest update. Hopefully the transition will be painless for all of us.
See you Monday.

She only singled out cauliflower because it’s white

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out.

The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal.

Old Mountain Practice of “Tooth Jump’n”

The colonial men and women who first settled the Appalachian Mountains did so purposefully, knowing full well of the many risks they were taking: They were inhabiting a wilderness land void of cities, modern resources and one that saw medical help virtually nonexistent.

In order to survive in this isolation the inhabitants were forced to become jacks of all trades.

PsychoChicks – We’ve all had ’em

MAY 22–Angry that a male acquaintance refused to perform oral sex on her, a 19-year-old Louisiana woman fired a shot at the man, prompting him to jump from the second-floor balcony of his Baton Rouge apartment, according to court records.

The victim said he invited Anneisha Speed into his home “due to the two ‘hanging out’ earlier in the day” on May 13, a Baton Rouge Police Department officer noted in a probable cause affidavit.

Yeah well, when you live in a third world shithole…

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year’s record number of flea-borne typhus cases.

Even the city’s most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA’s busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

People are going to die like flies

Manteca is scrambling to get an emergency plan in place after being told by PG&E they will cut off electricity to the entire city for up to five days when conditions in high risk areas in the Sierra in Calaveras and Tuolumne counties warrant it during the upcoming wildfire season.

Manteca Fire Chief Kyle Shipherd advised the City Council Tuesday PG&E contacted the city to tell them the transmission line that serves Manteca will be de-energized for up to five days when high winds and conditions make the start of destructive wildfires more likely. Had the policy — in response to the November fire in Butte County that killed 85 people and burned 14,000 homes as well as 5,000 additional structures that the company concedes, and state fire officials contend, improperly maintained power lines triggered — been in place for the past two years Manteca would have experienced three complete blackouts ranging from one to five days.

The warning is also being issued to other valley cities that are far from wildfire prone areas but are along transmission lines that serve such areas.

Manteca’s just 10-15 miles up the road from where I used to live.
Five days without power – that means no air conditioning in the summer where it’s typically 100+ degrees for 30 days or more days at a time. No food refrigeration, no AC, no fans… and this is in a state where people are too damned stupid to take a cold shower to cool off. Oh wait, I forgot – water there is too precious to waste on using it to keep from heatstroking, and that’s if there’s enough power to pump it to their houses.

Oh, horseshit

(CNN) — The FBI has seen a significant rise in the number of white supremacist domestic terrorism cases in recent months, a senior FBI counterterrorism official said Thursday.

The official said the FBI has been grappling with the rise of domestic threats while international terror threats have remained constant with the fall of the ISIS caliphate in Syria.

The domestic terror cases generally include suspects involved in violence related to anti-government views, racial or religious bias, environmental extremism and abortion-related views.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to eat watermelon

For those of you who aren’t from around these parts, or who didn’t receive the instruction book when you were born, there is a right way and a wrong way to eat watermelon.

It didn’t occur to me that anyone might not know this simple fact until a few years ago when I met my husband Sweetums and learned he had not taught his two boys the proper way to eat watermelon. Well, love me tender and call me Elvis. This life lesson is on the list right after wearing clean underwear in case you’re in a wreck.

That morning, we’d stopped at a produce stand to get a watermelon that wasn’t “fake news,” by which I mean you didn’t cut it open only to find out someone had stolen all the seeds. (Real watermelons have seeds, y’all, because God wanted us to have something fairly harmless to spit on our siblings.)

*****

Shit, I bet I was 10 years old before I got brave enough to eat a watermelon without salt. Even when I was a little kid we’d take a salt shaker with us when me and my uncle raided the watermelon field across the road.

AOC never ceases to amaze

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said tornadoes are the latest climate change threat after a tornado warning was issued for Washington, D.C.

“There’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” the New York Democrat said Thursday in an Instagram video after the city was placed under a tornado warning. “This is crazy.”

After her brief video, Ocasio-Cortez discussed how tornadoes were part of the threat of climate change.

“The climate crisis is real y’all,” she said. “Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?”

Somebody might want to let her know that tornadoes aren’t anything new and that they can happen anywhere. Then when you’re done cluing her in, you can come explain to me what a ‘casual’ tornado is.
