Kansas City Drivers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Ass. Press) – Several shootings have targeted apparently random vehicles along a tangle of interstate highways in south Kansas City, but it doesn’t seem to have rattled area drivers, who say they’ll stick with their normal routes.

“I live in Kansas City,” said Steven Murphy, a local commuter. “Getting shot at might be the best thing that happens to me all day.”

“Heck, I invite being targeted by a sniper,” said Linda Kromthip, another Kansas City resident driver. “I have a bumper sticker that says ‘I Hate Violent Blacks and Jews.’ I know it is a long shot, but who knows? I might get lucky.”

This is me, disappointed with the Sydney Morning Herald. My disappointment looks a lot like a terrible, preternatural anger, doesn’t it?

.

People of Earth, I am deeply disappointed with the Sydney Morning Herald.  Allow me to explain why.

As some of my regular visitors know, I feel a strange affinity for Australia and the exceptional people I’ve met there.

You can imagine my delight when I received this email invitation:

Herald Invite

.

The Herald explained what they wanted as follows:

The Sydney Morning Herald is challenging you to help us tackle the prevalence of alcohol-related violence and anti-social behavior in Sydney.

Put your ideas to work and create a 30 second video ad or an A4 poster for our Safer Sydney campaign. Your ad should speak to those heading out for the night, especially young men. The winning entry will receive $2,500 as well as being featured across The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper, online and tablet editions.

How could I resist such an invitation?  I myself am guilty of perpetrating alcohol-related anti-social behavior with the very worst hooligans and yobbos Sydney has to offer.

So I was delighted to have received a request from the Sydney Morning Herald to use my many creative talents to help the good people of Sydney to improve their quality of life.  I snapped into action and put this poster together:

.

.

Stay Classy, Sydney

.

I felt fairly pleased with my effort.  It was pithy and to the point. It directly spoke to those headed out for the night, especially young men – who are always primarily interested in impressing the ladies with the hope of persuading them to engage in sexual congress.  I felt my poster was a sure fire winner.

Then I read the contest rules:

2. The Promotion is a game of skill, and chance plays no part in determining the winners.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH Judge Jean Boyd

Posted in American Decline, And now the snorting starts, Crime and Punishment, Grim Fairy Tales, Money and Power, Mordor, News, The Wrath of God, USA! USA! USA!, سياسة on December 14, 2013 by paulboylan

Jeanboyd

You will not believe what this judge did.

Judge Jean Boyd is a Republican judge who has presided over the Texas 323rd Family District Court since 1995. She is now at the center of world-wide attention because she sentenced 16-year-old named Ethan Couch to probation and entry into a private, exclusive $450,000  Southern California coastal rehab program after Couch – while over 3 times the legal limit of alcohol intoxication from drinking stolen beer and under the influence of Valium – drove an automobile and caused the deaths of four people and injured 10 others.   Couch’s defense was that he was suffering from “affluenza” – a disease that is suffered by rich people who behave irresponsibly because they believe that their position of wealth and privilege will exempt them from the consequences of their bad acts. In this frankly fictitious interview, Judge Boyd explains her reasoning.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Judge Boyd, thank you for agreeing to speak with us today.

JUDGE JEAN BOYD:  My pleasure. I look forward to every opportunity to get the word out about the evils of Obamacare and how wrong it is, morally and economically, to give anything to poor people because all it will do is encourage them to be poor.

POE:  We aren’t going to talk about Obamacare today, Judge.

BOYD:  For heavens sake, why not? Other than the liberal conspiracy to prevent crazy people from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights to buy automatic weapons, Obamacare is the most important issue our nation faces. When desperate poor people no longer worry about being able to afford to get sick, then they are less likely to tolerate slave wages and poor working conditions.  That will mean higher wages, higher prices and the end of our Christian nation as we know it.

the ideal employee

POE:  Although that is undoubtedly true, we are here today to talk about your decision to sentence Ethan Couch to probation after killing four people because he was suffering from “affluenza.”

BOYD: Yes. I did that based on the testimony of an expert.

POE:  You mean Dr. Gary Miller, a psychologist the Couch family hired,  who testified that Couch was the victim of his parents wealth and overindulgence, and that his family felt that money would solve any problem?

Dr. Gary Miller

Dr. Gary Miller

BOYD:  That’s the one. Did I mention that he is an expert?  That poor boy needs rehabilitation, not incarceration.

POE: And when you say “rehabilitation” you are referring to the private Newport Beach rehabilitation facility in Souther California which costs $450,000 a year that Couch’s extremely wealthy father said he would pay for?

NA_emailgraphic

BOYD:  Absolutely.  That was parts  of my judgment.  It is important to send someone suffering from an illness to a place where they are comfortable around people who are familiar.

POE:  And, in this case, Couch needs a luxurious environment by the beach surrounded by rich people?

rich kids suffering from affluenza

BOYD:  I’m glad you understand.  Are you wealthy?

POE:  No.

BOYD: Do you have any other questions?

POE:  Yes. Is it your opinion that being wealthy is a defense against manslaughter?

BOYD:  Not wealth itself.  But the affects of being wealthy can lead to an illness known as “affluenza” and it is that mental disability that makes the wealthy individual not responsible for his or her actions. How can wealthy, white people be held responsible for anything  when they suffer from affluenza?

POE:  So Affluenza is a disease caused by extreme wealth that is a mitigating factor – an excuse – justifying probation instead of jail or prison.

BOYD:  Exactly.

beware wealthy drivers copy

POE:  Why isn’t extreme poverty a disease that justifies probation instead of incarceration?

MILLION-BLACKS-LIVE-BELOW-POVERTY-LINE-AMERICA-large570

BOYD: Poverty is not a disease. It is a punishment from God for being lazy and shiftless. Wealthy people, such as myself, are provided with wealth and privilege by God as a reward for hard work.  If poor people were willing to work hard, they would be wealthy, too.

POE:  So affluenza is the result of a gift from God.

BOYD:  Yes!  Good point!  I suspect that, maybe, affluenza is part of God’s plan, which is another reason to go soft on wealthy people who commit crimes.

POE:  You sentenced Ethan Couch to spend time in an exclusive spa -

BOYD:  An expensive rehabilitation facility and spa.

POE:  Ethan Couch’s disease is arrogance encouraged by wealth and privilege.

BOYD:  Yes. Exactly.

.

rich-white-men-with-guns-s.

POE:  Why isn’t there a counterpart for anger encouraged by poverty and disadvantage?

the broken wall, the burning roof and tower copy

BOYD:  That makes no sense.

POE:  Let me give you an example.  About a year ago you sentenced a 14 year old African-American boy to 10 years in prison for accidentally killing a man.

BOYD:  I sure did.  That little monster punched that man, who fell and hit his head on the pavement and eventually died. That black boy killed a person.

POE:  Ethan Couch had a history of drug and alcohol use and drunk driving. He stole two cases of beer, got drunk, went driving and killed four people,  injuring ten others – some catastrophically.  Sixteen year old Sergio Molina survived the accident but is now paralyzed for the rest of his life.

BOYD:  Yes, but Ethan Couch suffers from a disease.

POE:  Why wasn’t that 14 year old black boy suffering from DCS?

BOYD:  DCS?

POE:  Disadvantaged Citizen Syndrome.

BOYD:  You really aren’t listening.  Ethan Couch’s wealth and privilege caused him to have the emotional and intellectual capacity of a twelve year old boy.  It would be wrong to punish him with something so extreme as time in prison.

POE:  The State of Texas has no problem executing retarded black men with a mental age of 12 or even younger.

BOYD:  I am offended by the term “retarded.”

POE: Really?  That offends you?  Letting a rich kid get away with killing four people because he is rich and emotionally immature while executing mentally challenged black men who’s only difference from the rich white kid is that they are poor and black – that doesn’t offend you?

BOYD:  That hasn’t happened. You liberals are always making things up. Name one time that has happened.

POE:  Mavin Wilson.  A 54 year old black guy with with IQ of 61. Executed in Texas on August 7, 2012.

BOYD:  He wasn’t retarded.

POE:  Texas law states that an IQ of 70 or less qualifies as retarded.

BOYD: You’re missing the point here. Ethan Couch’s  family raised him to believe that his wealth and race bought privilege.

POE:  Looks like they were right.

BOYD:   That poor child was raised in an environment with no  link between his behavior and consequences.

POE:  So sending him to an expensive, luxury rehab center on the beach in Southern California thousands of miles away from his parents will teach him how not to feel privileged because he is white and wealthy?  Your defense for his bad acts is that he was ignored and had money thrown at him, but you’re sending him away and spending a lot of money on him. How is this going to rehabilitate him? How will that cure him of the parental neglect and over privilege that you say caused him to get drunk and kill four people?   Is ten years of probation “better” than any amount of prison time?  Do you think it will be effective in altering his behavior?  Isn’t your judgment in his favor just more proof that the American justice system is designed by politicians paid by the rich to protect the rich at the expense of everyone else?

JusticeForSale

JUDGE BOYD:  This interview is over.

POE:  Oh no it isn’t.  It has just begun.  What you did wasn’t justice. It was an anthem to the power of privilege.  You have proven that American justice isn’t fair and isn’t equal. You’ve shown that justice in America is for sale at a price that only the wealthy can afford.   You will never get a good night’s sleep again.  What you did has outraged republicans and democrats, liberals and conservatives alike.  We are united in our condemnation of your abominable decision to let this kid go with a slap on the wrist and a sentence sending him to a luxury resort paid for by his rich father.  We will not let you forget or pretend you behaved in any way as a judge is expected to behave.

The American people know the game is rigged in favor of rich people.  We know the rich post bail and the poor go to jail.  And we tolerate a certain measure of that kind of corruption. But what you did went too far.  You opened up the sore and showed the rot infesting the body politic. Your career as a judge is over.  You just don’t know it yet.

UPDATE:  Judge Boyd is now expected to retire, but a petition is circulating demanding that Texas Governor Perry remove Judge Boyd from the bench immediately.

buried with flowers

NEWARK – Anthropologists have uncovered a 12,000 year old grave from an ancient Mafia “hit.”

“Twelve thousand years ago two bodies were dumped into a grave, a bouquet of flowers were tossed on top of them, and then the grave was filled with dirt,” said Dr. Edwina Motel, Director of the New Jersey Institute of Archeological Anthropology. “This is the oldest example of a contract killing thus far discovered,” Motel said.

“We got no comment,” said Joe Pamplionani, spokesperson for the Pamplionani crime family. “Look, it happened a long time ago. Who knows what happened? Could have been an accident,” Pamplionani said.

House of Representatives Republican Majority Leader John Boehner recently stated “Obama wants to obliterate the Republican Party.” Boehner’s complaint has inspired me to draft a fake interview where he explains why Obama needs to do anything at all to destroy the GOP when the GOP is doing a fine job of destroying itself.

I haven’t finished writing the interview yet, but I have collected together the photos I will use for illustration:

So I am sitting on the couch in my family room watching my son watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when I comment on the recent news articles revealing that former POTUS George Herbert Walker Bush is an accomplished painter with a penchant for painting himself in the nude.

.

Opening Of New U.S. Embassy

.

“You mean he stood there looking at himself in a mirror?” My son asked.

“Yes, I suppose he did,” I responded.

After a short silence my son opined:

“Well, that makes sense.”

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“Okay, let’s say you are a former conservative Republican President who likes to paint nudes,” my son says.

“Okay,” I respond. “let’s say that.”

“Well, then your possibilities are limited,” my son concludes.

“How so?” I ask.

“Have you seen Barbara Bush?” my son asks.

“His wife?”

“Yes.”

.

.

Barbara-Bush

.

“Oh,” I said, granting the point.

.

UPDATE:

I found out later that it is was recently revealed that it is George Bush the Younger (the one who started two long wars but didn’t pay for them and very nearly brought down the global economy), not George Bush the Elder (the one who scoffed at his critics’ complaints that he lacked foresight by referring to it as “that vision thing”) who painted and presumably still paints himself nude.

I didn’t inform my son of my error.  I value any exercise in critical thinking and, based on even invalid data his conclusion was admirable.

And it is very likely that the younger Bush paints himself nude because his daddy did it, too, and the younger Bush is competing with him artistically.

The following photo is of a painting obtained by hackers of the younger Bush’s painting efforts. It is a bit creepy because it is clearly derived from a photograph, which means George has a collaborator who takes pictures of him in the nude:

.

.

The elder Bush was a better president (he fought Gulf War I, neutralized Saddam Hussein without creating a quagmire the US could not exit from).  The odds are the elder Bush is a better painter.
