Colorado Springs Shooter

You’ve probably seen speculation that the Colorado Springs shooter, who-does-not-deserve-to-be-named, is a white, male, conservative, Republican, anti-abortion, NRA member.

Maybe not. The Gatway Pundit seems to have found his her voter registration. Mr/s [nameless shit] self-identified as a female, and a member of the ‘UAF’.


As best I can tell, the ‘UAF’ is Unite Against Fascism, a leftwing pressure group/party in the UK. It doesn’t seem to be a US-based party of any sort. I found this description amusing.

“A motley rabble of anti-democratic cultural self-haters, relativists, pimply-faced students, Islamists, anti-semites and left-wing fascists… Unite Against Fascism, but not religious fascism, because that might offend the fascists.”

Considering the potential Islamist tie-in, it’s not impossible that this was another case of Islamic terrorism. It’s not as far reach as that ugly bearded guy being a woman.

Or maybe she was upset that PP couldn’t perform an abortion on her.

Damned sexists.

Drudge out of my bookmarks

The Drudge Report has always had more than a tinge of tabloidishness. But it also did well on breaking news. But today…


Just in case there was something resembling actual news behind that headline, I read the article. Happily, it isn’t as lurid as the headline suggests. Nor does the text support the headline claim. It’s essentially an animal welfare advocacy piece that says the were 10 cases of horse sexual abuse in 2014. It doesn’t say that’s up, down, or sideways from previous years. No baseline is given. If you want to read it, find it on your own.

But Drudge has been getting less useful than it once was. I’ve noticed it has fewer headlines than in the past. Old stuff stays on the page longer. More of it is clickbait fluff.

Drudge just isn’t worth bothering with anymore. It’s been working its way down my list of newslinks for years. It just fell off.

L.A. has apparently eliminated all violent crime

…since they can redirect their resources to this:

Drive by LA’s Prostitutes? Your Wife May Get a Letter
Los Angeles is considering a controversial policy to help cut down on prostitution: City Council voted this week to have the city attorney’s office review a proposal to send warning letters to the owners of cars spotted in areas frequented by prostitutes, reports the Los Angeles Daily News. The plan would rely on license plate information to discover the owners.

Can’t let those ALPRs go to waste. Too bad if you work or live in the area. Or have to commute through. Or have any other legitimate, non-recreational reason to be there. Or if the ALPR misreads someone elses plate.

I think commenter roddy6667 has the right idea.

Do what people in the UK are doing with speed cameras. They get the license plates of police officials and politicians, an make a perfect replica using Pagemaker or whatever. They tape it over their plate and drive through the speed traps fast. All these people get tickets in the mail. Find out what politicians passed this ordinance, or find out who is speaking out in favor of it. Print the plate. Cruise the hookers. Fun arrives in the mail. Law changed soon.

Of course, with politicians, we’ll have the problem of sorting out the fakes from the real ones soliciting hookers.

That’s going to reduce the available shelters

Feds to require shelters to accommodate transgender individuals
A proposed regulation would require shelters that receive funding from the Office of Community Planning and Development, which spends $6.5 billion annually, to “provide transgender persons and other persons who do not identify with the sex they were assigned at birth with access to programs, benefits, services, and accommodations in accordance with their gender identity.”

Besides the obvious — some religious shelters closing rather than violating their beliefs — we’d see others shut down because it’s too bloody expensive and complicated to run a shelter with sleeping quarters segregated by five or more ‘genders’ that have nothing to do with biological reality. Got four beds each in Straight Male and Gay Male, but one straight and five gays looking for help?. Some dumbass is going to be stuck on the street rather than share a room with someone who is not sexually interested in him, while beds go unused.
