After watching a few episodes of Cobra Kai season 3, I am beginning to think if there was ever a time America needed John Kreese, now more than ever, is that time.
Take that as you will.
That’s interesting. Indeed thats very interesting given they are still testing COVID vaccines there so they can’t really credit mass vaccinations.
For the gamblers among us.
Somehow, this got interesting.

Within hours, several hundred Cuban artists and students staged a rare sit-in protest outside the Cuban Ministry of Culture and some of the island’s best known cultural figures voiced their support for Otero Alcántara and greater freedom of expression.Cuban officials quickly released Otero Alcántara and claimed he was part of a US “soft coup” against the island.

That’s a good one too, but no, the other one. They look like 2 Russian strippers putting a ribbon on a 3rd stripper’s butt.
I like that one. They look British to me. It’s in the wink. Perhaps that’s just wishful thinking.

Shiny object for the press to fixate on.
I suspect they know very well that she’s a sideshow, but covering her serves their ends. They’re trying to generate outrage to distract the public from their role in covering up the origins of the Wu-Flu. Secondarily, they’re carrying water for their little darling AOC who feels actually, physically threatened by MTG.
At least she’s worth fixating on. Maybe they can fixate on her in skimpy little outfits.

One of Cuba’s most rebellious dissidents has spent more than ten days in a closely guarded hospital in Havana but it’s not clear what, if anything, he is being treated for.
Artist and activist Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara was on day eight of a hunger strike protesting what he said was a campaign of Cuban government harassment against him when, before dawn, health officials transported him to a government hospital.
Manuel Alcantara Did not kill himself.
I’d been calling him suede my entire life before I realized there was a difference.

Save us from Tacky Orange Man, Joe Biden!
President Biden announced his intention Tuesday afternoon to appoint four new members to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, the body that oversees design and architecture of federal buildings in Washington, D.C. Their positions are appointed by the president and do not need to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
The four intended appointees are meant to replace four commissioners who had been installed by former President Donald Trump, and who helped shape a controversial executive order intended to promote neoclassical architecture as the official style for federal buildings in Washington and at new federal courthouses elsewhere.
A White House official told NPR: “President Biden is proud to nominate this extremely qualified and well-respected group of professionals to the Commission on Fine Arts. They will bring to the commission a diversity of background and experience, as well as a range of aesthetic viewpoints.”
What a relief. Now we can get truly authentic American buildings.
Looking forward to the new Brutalist MiniLove building, meant to evoke Kamala servicing Willie Brown.
At least brutalism is cheap. We don’t need to build temples and palaces for file clerks.
At least brutalism is cheap.
Not when government contractors do it. It’ll be expensive _and_ ugly.
There’s a middle ground between “ass-ugly” and “temples and palaces”.
Hah hah hah… oh if only it were. Leaving aside the jacked up price, there’s ongoing maintenance and renovation work to try and polish the turd into something workable.
Not as cheap as a Temper Tent. If its good enough for the front, its good enough for a patent clerk.
You apparently went to a different college.
Brutalist and minimalist architecture gets a bad rap. Done well it can be just as impressive as any other style. The problem is if it’s done poorly it’s very obviously bad. Classical and many other styles “hide” their poorly done designs, mostly because people don’t know any better and the familiar is soothing. “oh look columns and arches and pediments that must be good.” Look at all the McMansions of the last decade or three, shit designs but they look like what uneducated hillbillies (but I repeat myself) “think” is good architecture and thus it is.
Beverly HillsBel-Air Clampett abode.
*Give-A-Shit-O-Meter registers zero*
a range of aesthetic viewpoints.
We have both kinds of architecture- Stalinist and Brutalist!
They’ll all be penis shaped.
And female penis shaped, for inclusiveness.
Something like this?
This one shoots fireworks.
This petition really should have gotten more traction
Now we can get more fed buildings that look like parking garages with windows. Fucking hooray.
“At least the ugly goes clear to the bone.”
I honestly don’t get how anyone can like Brutalist architecture. It’s some of the most godawful ugly stuff imaginable. And, no, it isn’t particularly practical. If anyone here remembers visiting Independence Mall (Phila) before they rehabbed it, it was one of the most miserable locations imaginable. In the summer, when a park would be an ideal place to venture, the gigantic concrete monstrosity made the entire area a sweltering misery.
Don’t want Neo-Classical? Fine. I’d be shocked if a competent developer couldn’t figure out how to put up cookie cutter buildings (in different cities) in Federalist or Georgian style. At least it would be pleasant to look at.
(Mo likes at least some Brutalism IIRC.)
Re your second graf, see Chesapeake Energy buildings in OKC.
Now, you see, that looks civilized. It looks impressive without feeling like it’s some giant block just put there to crush you.
The pics I found, it looks like a college campus.
I expect we’ll now get more of this. You know, because it’s edgy and stuff.
So, umm.. when will they complete construction?
Oh goodie. Another Rock ‘n Roll Museum/Hall of Fame.
So, the college was renowned for being one of the better architecture schools, and every year for the junior design course the serious arch students were assigned to remake that building, as it was a state-designed brutalist nightmare. Freezing in winter, boiling in summer, the profs hated the fucking thing and used it as an example of bad design.
Here is an internal shot. Showing how bad the sixties could get.
And the exterior
Thankfully, in time for the FBI to replace the Hoover building with something worse.

I love that federal buildings that look like federal buildings is “controversial”. Never change, NPR.

BTW getting your news from Fox is like getting your dinner from an outhouse.”
“what can be expected
from treasonous, seditious traitor to our democracy. TO HELL with ALL of them. I have a peace sign on my hat. I was in line at my store of record, this pig saw it and chuckled and mumbled to his young friend. I met his eyes and all I saw was hate. I said I believe in peace, but if it’s a war you want, a war you get. His eyes dropped from mine his friend turned away and I turned my back on the GD cowards. Both POS in my book.
I got an approving smile from the person in front of me. I am not afraid of these clowns, won’t ever be.”

I’ll take Things that didn’t happen for a thousand.
Yeah, cupcake, that’s not going to work out like you think it will.
I don’t put too much faith in those polls. Filing lawsuits against election audits and calling election safeguards racist should change those Republicans’ minds.
Nice narrative management.
Wasn’t the margin that matters somewhere closer to 30,000 votes in a handful of swing states?
Forget it, Scruffy; it’s DU…
*pencils in another domain to kill the links to*
It was about 40k votes spread out over 3 states.
To put that in perspective, 80 counties in Texas had more residents than that 40k vote magin.
To John Lewis, the effects of the protests following George Floyd’s murder were clear.
“People will never, ever forget what happened and how it happened,” he said. ”And it is my hope that we are on our way to greater change.”
That’s my hope too. Don’t stop pushing.
People will never, ever forget what happened and how it happened
I certainly won’t, but not the way he means.
Now explain the line that leads from George Floyd to the radical Marxism the people who jumped on his corpse are demanding.
The opiate of the masses.
No complaints about the thumbnail MS. In fact, it may be the world’s greatest thumbnail.

That was the best of the Hardee’s ads, before they decided that having sexy, funny commercials that people liked was wrong.
You mean Carl’s Jr?
Whichever you like – we have neither in the Northeast.
They used to be in Pennsylvania and New York.
/checks Hardees website and Google maps
Looks like still in Pennsylvania, but not in New York.
Well, I have danced to some strange stuff.
Hearing “Hardee’s” always makes me think of that silly song (my people know it as Carl’s).
Ahhh, I see.
I never knew about Carl’s until my 30s I think. In my travels around the country, I had never seen one.
Hardees existed in my part of Pennsylvania, but they slowly started disappearing when I was in high school. The closest one in PA to where I grew up is about an hour drive.
You are correct sir.
Technically, it’s an animated GIF. A thumbnail is just a really small version of an image; the avatars here are sized down to thumbnail size.
I’d like the full length movie but I’ll take what MS is offering.
Technically “technically” is another way of saying “axchually”.
Gunshots of peace and love.
BREAKING: shots appear to have been fired at George Floyd Square. Quiet now. People still sheltering in place.
We heard a few dozens sounds of what appear to have been shots fired on this block. Everyone sheltered in place. Lots of running. No apparent need for medics. Will update.
From our vantage point we see one broken window, apparently from one of the shots fired. Consensus among reporters here at George Floyd Square was that we heard anywhere between a dozen and two dozen shots fired.
Reality is putting The Babylon Bee to the test.
One of Cuba’s most rebellious dissidents has spent more than ten days in a closely guarded hospital in Havana but it’s not clear what, if anything, he is being treated for.
He’s being treated for wrongthought.

That’s incredibly sad.
We can usually turn a healthy newborn for $10-15K in the secondary market.
Shitlord confirmed ???
I’m sure the part of the story that makes you sad is how the journalo keeps using shitlord language like “mother” and “baby”! No wonder the birthing person is so depressed when she lives in a time and place where people feel free to assume your gender just because you are toting a “recently birthed person”.
I love to shitlord as much as the next guy. I just can’t get past a 14 year old giving birth and her first thought appears to be she has got to give the baby away. I don’t know what’s going on in her home and I very much doubt I want too.
Listen, Jack. I’m the healthiest president ever. I mean, how many pushups can you even do?
White House press secretary Jen Psaki discussed Biden’s physical health on Monday after a reporter asked her about the president’s Peloton exercise bike. (The New York Times reported in January that Biden’s Peloton might not make it into the White House, as it posed a possible cybersecurity risk.)
Psaki did not reveal if Biden still uses the exercise bike at the White House.
“I will say I have nothing to read out on the president’s private exercise routine,” she replied. “I can tell you, having traveled with him a fair amount, sometimes he’s hard to keep up with.”
The Washington Post reported Monday that Biden had built-in routines that include a daily morning workout and sometimes has meetings with his personal trainer. The report also notes that Biden has an affinity for chocolate chip cookies, orange Gatorade, and Coke Zero.
That electric truck debacle left the news pretty quick, eh?
Edited for accuracy.
When I watch people sweating it out on those Peloton commercials, the first person it reminds me of is Joe Biden.
You would think the white house would have a place for him to hang his laundry, and he wouldn’t have to bring his own exercise equipment for that.
meetings with his personal trainer
Because that’s what you do with your personal trainer – meet with them. You know, sit down, maybe have some coffee, shoot the shit.
sometimes he’s hard to keep up with
I’m sure he can be evasive and put on some unexpected speed when he spots a girl with unsniffed hair.
It isn’t the speed that make it hard to keep up with him, it is his unpredictability.
Like toddlers, you can’t figure out any rhyme or reason for what they are doing and that makes it seem even more tiring. Joe will just drop a signing pen and rush off in a completely different direction. Know one knows what is next.
It is quite possible that he’s physically fit, but non compos mentis.
Jen would have to be quite the sluggard to have a hard time keeping up with any 80 year old man.
She’s a lizard person. The skin suit slows them down.
He’s definitely hard to keep up with when he’s spouting gibberish.
Sure he is, wandering around like he does.
I have a friend who works at a nursing home for dementia patients; she has a hard time keeping up with them too, when they get the idea in mind that they need to be at a work meeting or go to dinner with a friend or, maybe give a press conference.
Coke Zero and not Diet Coke, because that was Trump’s drink.
Why don’t I believe that a nearly 80 year old’s favorite soda is one that came out barely a decade ago and was reformulated four years ago.

Interesting: ‘The Narrative’ and the Forgotten Voyage that Changed the Course of the Revolutionary War
The term “information warfare” may not have been coined in 1775, but America’s Founding Fathers absolutely understood the importance of controlling the narrative. When the smoke and chaos cleared on that fateful, bloody morning of April 19, 1775, the politically-savvy Patriot leaders immediately realized the all-important question of “Who fired first?” on Lexington Green would forever distinguish for the world between the aggressors and defenders in the American Revolution.
Refusing to sit back and allow the occupying British forces to control the narrative, the Provincial Congress formed a committee within days, including Marblehead merchant and future congressman and vice president, Elbridge Gerry, to gather depositions to convey to London the American version of events at Lexington and Concord. Compiling the accounts was only half the battle, though. They knew they must get their version of events across the Atlantic before British commander General Thomas Gage’s.
The propaganda effort worked. During the Revolution, there were more people in England who backed independence for the American colonies than there were people in the colonies fighting for it.
Haven’t these people suffered enough?
The Family could have spent the day at the Mexican border, handing out food to those in need. Had George Floyd chosen that route in turning his life around he would be alive, in all likelihood.
He’d also have been closer to his recreational source.
I’m looking forward to the “Where are they now?” program on the Floyd family in 20 years.
I know that $27M won’t bring George back, but I have a feeling that the money may lead to a bit of family turmoil when they divvy it up.
I expect them to be like most lottery winners. In about 2 years the money will be gone.
“Good tune, but does everything have to be black and white now?”
The list of 24 demands that must be met before the locals will allow George Floyd Square to open up again.
There are actually a half dozen or so decent ideas in there. The problem is that they are swamped in the craziness, grift and impossibilities.
In addition to the demands, there is also a healthy list of things that the taxpayers should fund. My personal favorite is $9M or so to fund the Bryant Neighborhood Association. I like it because the $9M will go to buy a new office and:
So someone is doing their best to set themselves up with some nice digs and a $300K/yr job.
Tanks and water hoses.
Time to clear the streets.
I was thinking about the ’60s. But, I suppose that might work too.
At this point I honestly wouldn’t shed a tear if someone decided it was time to fix bayonets and sort some shit out.
I would. I don’t want the government to treat people that way. I disagree with the protesters, but just marching doesn’t change anything. So, they’re trying new tactics.
What about the people that live there? Don’t they deserve some basic protections from the mob that has occupied the area?
At least two people have been shot in the area and not gotten immediate treatment because EMS crews couldn’t reach the victim because of the protesters*.
*In once case, the protesters claim it was the cops that prevented the EMS crew from reaching the victim. I don’t have enough facts to know what the truth is.
Can’t that happen without fix bayonets? Go in and arrest, but going in determined to do violence regardless isn’t the same, which is what fix bayonets sounds like. It’s likely there will be violence, because of how the protesters respond, but that’s different than charging in to bust heads.
Sorry Tulip. I misunderstood.
I thought you were advocating for leaving the square and protesters alone. It was from that that I pleaded for the rights of the poor bastards who are trapped down there.
I wouldn’t go in with fixed bayonets either. I would go in with equipment to clear the roads and enough paddy wagons to cart off any trouble makers.
That’s Not OK!
I didn’t say government should do it.
So, they’re trying new tactics.
Some tactics are unacceptable. Looting, burning, assaulting.
I would even say going to people’s homes to protest, especially at night, should not be tolerated.
Is our system busted, with what was supposed to be a government responsive to the citizenry displaced by a government of unaccountable bureaucrats answering to ologarch masters. What the BLMers and antifa are doing isn’t going to change that, other than perhaps getting a few more people admitted to the oligarchy, or bringing the whole thing down in a pile of flaming rubble.
Maybe flaming rubble is the cleansing fire we need, but I’m not there yet.
I don’t want the government doing that either. Let 2A do what it’s intended for.
I’d say if you can prove residency in the area (property ownership, rent bill, utility bill), here’s your shotgun, case of ammo, and some smoke grenades and zip ties.
This is more what I had in mind. Forget “National Guard at Kent State” and think “Roof Koreans.” I figure at some point people who live on those areas will have had enough.
Can’t wait to see that dance video!
You really need to see the Type 59s spinning on their turrets.
Better yet. Build a damned wall! You want to hold “George Floyd Square”? Fine. Stay there. If you’re a resident who wants out, we’ll set you up somewhere else when you leave. Otherwise, it’s blocked off.
we’ll set you up somewhere else when you leave

“Florida woman arrested after posing as student on high school campus to promote her Instagram: report
A Florida woman was arrested Monday after posing as a student on a high school campus so she could promote her Instagram.
Audrey Nicole Francisquini, 28, was arrested and faces charges of burglary, interfering at an educational institution and resisting an officer without violence, according to a report by WSVN, a FOX affiliated news station serving South Florida.
Francisquini reportedly went to American Senior High School in Hialeah at around 8:30 a.m. Francisquini was seen wearing a backpack, had a skateboard in her hand and was also carrying a painting. Security officers said she did so to blend in with students on campus, WKMG reported.”
How do you do, fellow kids?
Nothing in the article says why she was charged with burglary.
I’m not sure how its possible to commit a crime by resisting an officer “without violence”.
If interfering with an educational institution was a real crime, the jails would be full of teachers and administrators.
“I’m not sure how its possible to commit a crime by resisting an officer “without violence”.”
I had the same thought. My guess is she ran or tried to run.
Still a BS charge in my eyes
Not obeying is resisting. It is not a new thing.
How do you do, fellow kids?
It’s the skateboard that puts it squarely into that territory.
