    So Roofus, where exactly do you get the authority to physically assault and batter anyone who isn’t wearing a mask just because you feel like it?

  2. Posted to Facebook

    And I’ve seen lots of people going about their business without wearing any form of mask, so it looks like you’re going to be assaulting and battering lots of people then.

    Have fun with that, because some of them will hit back.

    I can say unequivocally that should you get your ass kicked by one of these people, I’m the last person on the planet that you should seek any form of sympathy or empathy from.

    Just saying that you seem to be a victim of the ID10T virus that’s been spread by the COVID-19 panic.

  4. Posted to Facebook

    Roofus, if you want to lead by example on the climate change issue, PM me with a mailng address, so that I can send you a plastic bag.

    The extra upside of it is that you won’t have to worry about COVID-19, either.

  5. Posted to Facebook

    You don’t want anyone to get too close to you, but here you are asking me out on a date?

    I find that highly irregular.

    Plus, I just don’t go that way.

    Have fun with that bugchasing!

    Back out from what?

    I’ve already made you my bitch here.

    Maybe, just maybe . . . the feds shouldn’t be handing out dumptrucks full of cash willy-nilly to begin with, regardless of who or what party is in power?

    As long as they keep the Albuquerque protest or whatever at 400 Roma NW and 1 Civic Plaza, it’s all good.

    There’s also the fifth box of Liberty — the Cash Box, as in we can choose to spend our coin of the realm in ways favorable for the cause of Liberty.

    Rachel — you didn’t win the Transhumanist Party presidential nomination. Vermin Supreme didn’t win the Libertarian Party presidential nomination.

    Any chance that the two of you might team up for the 2020 election, so that it gets all of the love and affection that it deserves?

  1. Went on a date at the Bosque Park [4100 Montano NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico], and had a great time.

    Neither one of us wore anything resembling a mask. In fact, during the 90 minutes I was there, I only saw two (2) people wearing masks of any kind, out of about 20-20 people in total.

    Love how her necklace in the photo looks like it was made from fishing bobbers.

  2. Posted to Facebook

    And her dress (?) looks like it was cut from a sofa left on the curb.

    Apparently, in Minneapolis, being accused of forgery warrants an ad hoc curbside death penalty.

    Back in 2014, James Boyd was summarily executed in the Foothills of Albuquerque for the crime of illegal camping.

    Why should taxpayers be on the hook for paying the resulting settlements from these incidents?

    How much longer would these atrocities continue if the damages to be paid were to be paid from the pension accounts of the officers involved, followed by the general police pension fund?

    *LOOK* at this image, a murder in progress, a human being who did nothing that deserved death, the face of a human being tortured to death by agents of the government in uniform, who claim to be doing this *IN YOUR NAME*.

    You should be outraged by this murder.

    Please take a moment to do the least you can:

    Have fun changing road wheels and track segments  :)

    I looked it up on the Google Play Store, and you’re not the only one to dislike it. No, I didn’t install it, nor do I have any plans to install it.

    What was a bit depressing were the reviews from people saying that “everyone needs to install it and use it.”

    I’m wondering if Google will sneak this onto our phones by including it in one of the OS updates for Android.

    Apple has already included it as part of iOS 13.5.

    https://forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2020/05/21/apple-ios-135-release-should-you-upgrade-new-iphone-update/#4ee4a9e32c88

    Apparently, you’ll have to turn off auotmatic updates for your iPhone to stop them sneaking it in.

    [Thanks to True Edjillo for the tip there about iOS 13.5]

    Any “state of emergency” lasting longer than a month should be required to be ratified by two-thirds (if not three quarters) of the registered electorate.

    I support the Second Amendment, but . . . .

    But . . . .

    Even if it were repealed tomorrow, by unanimous vote of the full U.S. House, the full U.S. Senate, and all fifty State Legislatures, the right that it was written and ratified to protect, the pre-existing, civil, individual human right to own and carry weapons for defense of self, family and community, doesn’t go away one bit.

    In fact, that’s precisely the sort of situation when you need to be sufficiently equipped and proficient to exercise that right against all aggressors.

    From the article:

    “The Democratic governor said that approved spending increases will have to be slowed due to a drop of up to $2.4 billion in estimated revenue levels, but that federal stimulus funds and state cash reserves could help the state avoid layoffs and furloughs of state workers and teachers.”

    G-ds forbid that any state employees should lose any income because of the COVID-19 panic.

    Who then speaks for the private sector workers who were laid off of furloughed, and are struggling to make ends meet?

    Certainly NOT the Maximum Loony Grandstander AKA Governor Chipmunk.
