North Korean Internet Goes Down Again, The Interview Will Be Screened, Supreme Court Considers Gay Marriage Bans: P.M. Links

|

  • I'm still going to see "Into the Woods" instead
    Sony Pictures

    Somebody keeps accidentally kicking the plug out of the wall that connects North Korea's computers to the Internet.

  • The Interview is going to be screened on Christmas Day in a handful of independent theaters, which is kind of funny because one imagines indie theaters would not have touched this movie with a 10-foot pole had it not launched this censorship controversy. It does serve as a reminder though that it was the chain theaters (and their legal teams) who had been keeping it out of the theaters.
  • The Supreme Court will consider on January 9 whether it will take up any of the state-level challenges to bans on gay marriage recognition from Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, or Louisiana.
  • Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of preparing a false tax return, which has led to pressure for him to resign.
  • A baggage handler for Delta is accused of helping smuggle firearms on plane trips to sell in New York.
  • Lots of available supply has led to lower natural gas prices and likely lower heating bills for the winter.

  1. The Interview is going to be screened on Christmas Day in a handful of independent theaters…

    After all this, you just know it’s going to suck balls.

    1. Of course. This was the best thing that could’ve happened to Sony with respect to this movie.

    2. Maybe this makes me a bad person, but while I am not a big fan, I don’t think that Seth Rogen is the worst thing in the world and I thought it sounded like a funny idea for a comedy.

      1. YOU ARE TOTALLY THE WORST PERSON EVER!

        I am a Rogen/Goldberg fan, and I’m looking forward to the movie (though of course it could be a dud). The amount of signalling going on in the comments here and elsewhere is amazing.

      2. I think Rogen can be pretty funny. It’s just that when he is the lead he seems to try way too hard and kills a lot of jokes.

        1. He’s a decent writer, actor and director; just not all at once.

      3. He is pretty darn funny, and the idea and what I’ve seen of the movie are funny. The reviews thus far say it’s pretty bad, and I don’t plan to spend $14 to see it (it’s more of a watch-one-Sunday-afternoon-on-HBO kind of movie), but the hate is ridiculous.

        The leaked clip of Kim Jong-Un’s death is pretty great.

    3. Hello.

      Zappa interviews. Love the freeform debate against the PRMC. Shroud and Gore are Democrats so not sure why he went off on Republicans:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3J0X8WaC4c

      1. I do, it’s because he was a douchebag.

        His kids are douchebags too.

  2. Somebody keeps accidentally kicking the plug out of the wall that connects North Korea’s computers to the Internet.

    Are we sure we’re using the term “internet” correctly here?

    1. Somebody keeps accidentally kicking the plug out of the wall that connects North Korea’s computers to the Internet.

      Computers? Plural?

    2. Of course. You think the elites in NK get by without cat videos and porn?

      1. The Dear Leader probably watches cat porn.

        1. I thought everyone did.

      2. There is a correlation with the availability of porn and decreased incidences of sexual violence.

        Maybe by kicking out the plug they are just encouraging more abuse of North Korea’s rape slaves.

        Also who the fuck wants to support Sony?

        Didn’t their executives blacklist Densel Washington from having a lead role in a film because he is black?

  3. The False Choice of Protesting for Justice and Supporting Our Police wherein HuffPo gets things almost right, up until the author, after having exonerated himself and other Pro-Brown and -Garner protesters, claims that those who “liked” Brinsley’s instagram post “have blood on their hands.”

    1. Yeah. Brinsley clearly gave a big shit about social disapproval of his actions.

      And what about the false choice of supporting police or not supporting police? Seems like the reasonable position is to support them doing good things and oppose them doing bad things. You don’t have to pick just one and stick with it.

      1. Has anyone else noticed a lot of the same people who give Obama shit for talking about Martin, Brown, Garner etc. are now giving him shit for not talking about the NYPD cops?

        1. And if he did they’d just turn their backs on him.

  4. Lots of available supply has led to lower natural gas prices and likely lower heating bills for the winter.

    But what do the poor saps who have wells on their land get??? It’s a giant lump of coal, that’s what.

    1. If they light it on fire, it will lead to lower heating costs for them as well.
      So where’s the down side?

    2. Decreasing demand and lots of supply has led to lower natural gas prices….

  5. A baggage handler for Delta is accused of helping smuggle firearms on plane trips to sell in New York.

    Wouldn’t driving them into the Empire State be easier?

    1. Seems like it. The media isfreaking out like it was smuggling pigs into Mecca

      1. The media freaks out about all things gun-related. Plus, this story allows them to do their perp-walk thing if they desire.

      1. Did the bag have a giant $ on it?

        1. Worse, it was “suspicious”. It was empty (another dumb thing to do) but was stiff from all the money sewed into it. Luckily the K-9 alerted on it so they could tear it apart.

          So, to recap 1) put some clothes, etc. in the bag so it will pass a cursory inspection 2) put the bag in the trunk 3) do not consent to the search.

    2. Corrupt baggage handler? Delta, at the airport, TSA has the monopoly on that behavior.

  6. More than 200,000 tickets issued for distracted driving in B.C.

    Koop said even if it means a couple of tickets a year and hundreds of dollars in fines, he probably won’t give up grabbing the phone when it rings. He sees it as a cost of doing business.

    1. He could use that money to help buy a car with bluetooth…

      1. “For all the latest medical poop,
        Call Surgeon General C. Everett Koop.”

        /B-Sharps

    2. Well, looks like people are not complying – and we know what that means.

      The police are now justified in using any force necessary to get them to comply.

      1. Those are the Moose-riding, Canuklehead cops

        1. Be that as it may – moose bites can be pretty nasty . . .

  7. Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of preparing a false tax return, which has led to pressure for him to resign.

    Why? Is the Obama administration offering him a cabinet position?

    1. Why? Is the Obama administration offering him a cabinet position?

      Maybe they want him to switch parties and run for Chuck Rangles seat. Based on the story he certainly seems qualified!

  8. The Supreme Court will consider on January 9 whether it will take up any of the state-level challenges to bans on gay marriage recognition from Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, or Louisiana.

    They have to celebrate The King’s birthday, first.

  9. DID THREADKILLER NOT ALREADY KILL ALL THESE THREADS?!

  10. Actually, Raising Beef Is Good for the Planet

    Despite environmentalists’ worries, cattle don’t guzzle water or cause hunger?and can help fight climate change

    http://www.wsj.com/articles/ac…..ding_now_4

    1. They do guzzle water, but give back a lot of it.

      1. Did you read the article?

        Nor are cattle voracious consumers of water. Some environmental critics of cattle assert that 2,500 gallons of water are required for every pound of beef. But this figure (or the even higher ones often cited by advocates of veganism) are based on the most water-intensive situations. Research at the University of California, Davis, shows that producing a typical pound of U.S. beef takes about 441 gallons of water per pound?only slightly more water than for a pound of rice?and beef is far more nutritious.

        1. Wait…where does the water go after the cow uses it?

          Certainly 1 pound of beef does not contain 441 gallons of water.

          Do environmentalists think all the water sinks to the center of the earth? Or evaporates to later rain on the ocean?

          I have always found water use discussions to be based on pretty idiotic assumption. When water is in a watershed there really is only one way for it to leave and that is by flowing into a river. If it goes through a a cow or some rice grass before hand is really immaterial.

    2. I thought they were farting holes in the ozone layer or something.

      1. Farting greenhouse gasses. But it’s part of the natural carbon cycle, which I thought was supposed to be OK.

        1. Actually, it’s burps not farts.

          The methane is a byproduct of conversion of cellulose into sugar, something that happens in the ruminant’s first stomach. the cow regurgitates this and further chews it (chewing the cud) and methane is released into the atmosphere.

          Of course, saying farts is much more amusing to the second-grader that lives within us all.

          1. Yeah, I actually knew that. But as you say, farts are much, much funnier.

          2. Wouldn’t the vegetation they eat decompose into the the same amount of methane anyway?

            1. Nope. Different decay process. And a lot of carbon would remain trapped in the cellulose.

          3. Cowbelch Methane would be a pretty good name for a rock’n’roll band.

    3. As a longtime vegetarian and environmental lawyer, I once bought into these claims.

      Let’s see, she’s qualified her statements by presentation of her credentials. Which leads to this comment:

      DANIEL MAURO
      1 hour ago

      This woman is a rancher. Consider the source. If you asked a coal executive if coal was bad for the environment, he would likely say no.

      IMPURE MOTIVES! IMPURE MOTIVES!

      1. Vegetarian rancher? Hmm, well, it does raise suspicion.

        1. “Eat my beef? Why, that’d be like eating money!”

    4. This guy wholeheartedly agrees. Seems to have his critics, but if he’s right, it’ll cause a lot of rethinking. Lots of land that can’t necessarily be farmed, but can feed livestock.
      http://www.ted.com/talks/allan…..anguage=en

      1. Cattle also eat a lot of vegetation that we cannot digest.

        1. You don’t start your dinner with a big plate of grass?

          1. No. Just a small bowl.

  11. Somebody keeps accidentally kicking the plug out of the wall that connects North Korea’s computers to the Internet.

    I’m still confused by this. It’s a country which we’ve empirically proved doesn’t have lights. Is there something going on here to suggest that what’s going on with the No Ko… “internet” is newsworthy?

    1. I’m guessing that most of the internet-connected computers are used by their intelligence agencies to post pro-nork propaganda, etc.

      1. So they shut down “The Nation’s” servers?

        1. Well, as of 6:44, it won’t load.

  12. From the western capitalist pigs who brought you Neighbors and The End…

    Brilliant.

  13. Obacca!

    http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads…..iginal.jpg

  14. Kirk’s 10 principles of conservatism:

    http://www.kirkcenter.org/inde…..rinciples/

    1. 1) Conserve your energy for the Green ones… They’re the best in bed!

      1. “If circumstances cause you to have to decide between the women of two alien species, go with the one you have never ‘explored’ before.”

    2. Pr0n for Eddie.

    3. Meh.

  15. The latest superstitious being peddled by the humans are hurting holy Gaia crowd is that increased CO2 in the atmosphere is acidifying the ocean and killing off sea life.

    It appears that the acidification crowd are bringing the same integrity that Michael Mann and Hansen brought to the subject of CAGW ie omitting inconvenient data that falsifies the desired hypothesis.

    Feely’s four-page report: Carbon Dioxide and Our Ocean Legacy, offered on the NOAA website, contains a similar chart. This chart, titled “Historical & Projected pH & Dissolved Co2,” begins at 1850 1960 actually – tarran. Feely testified before Congress in 2010?using the same data that shows a decline in seawater pH (making it more acidic) that appears to coincide with increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide.

    The big problem, people have been measuring ocean pH for a very long time, and the trend over the past century is flat.

    “In whose professional world,” Wallace asks, “is it acceptable to omit the majority of the data and also to not disclose the omission to any other soul or Congressional body?”

    1. An article of faith yields to no contrary evidence.

    2. Wait until they project pH to go below 0. 😉

      1. When you as much as look at the sea, your eyeballs will dissolve.

          1. I reject that website’s assertion that Doctor Who is classic. 😉

              1. I think we should other Ted for his lack of taste.

      2. Hmm, if we could put giant wired metal plates in, would we have all the DC electricity we’d ever need?

      3. Since pH is logarithmic, that’s not impossible (or at least not contradictory), is it?

        1. Three’s some point at which they project the oceans to become nothing but hydrogen ions, and then project it to go beyond that.

          1. “There’s some point”, not “three’s some point”, of course.

          2. Well, yes, it’s absurd. I’m just being weird.

            1. Still as far as I can figure, 100% H+ ions would be pH of negative infinity. No?

              Sorry. Right now I’m more interested in pointless arcana like this than climate change skulduggery.

              1. QED, the sun is very sour… which is why you do not put your tongue on the sun.

                1. So was my grandmother’s freezer. 9-volt transistor radio batteries on the other hand…

              2. You can get 100% protons in a particle accelerator.

      4. Not sure if you’re aware of this but pH can go below zero.

      5. Wait until they project pH to go below 0. 😉

        The Alkahest!

  16. which is kind of funny because one imagines indie theaters would not have touched this movie with a 10-foot pole had it not launched this censorship controversy.

    If one has limited imagination.

    I got tickets, maybe it will suck but I always enjoy watching Pineapple Express.

  17. Helicoptering? Parents go with kids to college

    Rather than following the sun down to Mexico, they followed their daughter to Portland, Oregon, where she is a sophomore. While still taking long weekends and other trips to Canada and California, the couple bought an apartment near campus that all three share.

    1. Back in my stint as a college professor, I had a mom show up for my office hours to bitch about her daughter’s test grade. It freaked me the fuck out. Annoyingly, she was right; I had messed up. Nonetheless, why did the mom come instead of the student?!?

      1. Um.

        Was she…hot?

        1. Oh God. All my students were 18 – 20. And some of them were breathtakingly pretty.

          Definitely look-but-not-touch though. Plus, I took my marriage vows seriously.

          In that case, yes the girl was passably pretty but, judging from her mom, was doomed to lose her looks in her 30’s.

          More to the point, she was a hard worker who deserved a better grade than I had given her.

          1. /licks point of pen.

            “B+. Now let’s talk about your grade.”

          2. More to the point, she was a hard worker who deserved a better grade than I had given her.

            Frankly, I would question whether the daughter actually did the work if I were approached by the parent.

            1. If it was a test, the daughter probably did it.

              1. Yes.

                The girl in question had licensing exams coming up in a couple of weeks, and I had a reputation for being pitiless in my grading (one guy walked out of a regrade with a lower grade than he walked in with). And, according to mom, my office hours conflicted with the girl’s lab class.

              2. Depends on the class size. It would not be entirely unheard of for a student to have a relative take the test for them.

      2. She was at home listening to baby mozart and officiating over scoreless t-ball games.

      3. Too embarrassed?

    2. What. The. Hell. Is. Wrong. With. People.

    3. “We’re calling it our gap year. We’re here for now, with the possibility of extending throughout her college career,

      *head in hands*

      College is not a fucking career.

      1. Of all the absolutely horrendous issues with that statement, you cued in on an interesting one.

        1. Everything else… everything else about the article is self-evidently horrible.

          However, this “college career” remark is used widely and often.

      2. It’s a fairly common usage, though. Words sometimes have more than one related meaning.

        1. According to Merriam Webster:

          1 a: speed in a course
          b: course, passage
          2: encounter, charge
          3: a field for or pursuit of consecutive progressive achievement especially in public, professional, or business life

          1. 4: a profession for which one trains and which is undertaken as a permanent calling

            Sense 3 seems to fit a college degree

            1. The *profession for which you train* is a career – not the training itself. To say that college is a career is to say that you intend to *stay* in college, for a long, long time.

              1. Do they still call those “gradual students”?

  18. Hacked emails reveal China’s elaborate and absurd internet propaganda machine

    Well, “hacked” is one way of putting it:

    Xiaolan?he only goes by that name?communicated with Quartz through encrypted chat messages. He said he was able to hack into Zhanggong’s propaganda department’s email account the easy way: by guessing the password.

    “Generally, the passwords for government departments are the name of the department followed by ‘123456’ or something like that,” Xiaolan said. In this case, the mailbox password was “xcb123456,” with “xcb” representing the first letter of the romanization of each character in ????”propaganda department.”

    “The most complicated passwords,” Xiaolan said, “are like name of department plus phone number.”

    1. Why can this guy post Chinese characters and I can’t? I always get a notice that I can’t use a foreign script.

      1. Because Carl checks the level man.

        1. ’cause something’s coming over me

      2. “this guy”?

        Watch your tongue, boy.

        It seems like it’s not a blanket abolition of foreign script, but some arbitrary percentage. So if you want to post Chinese and it rejects it, tacking on some nonsense ASCII (or better, complaints about the policy) should work.

  19. Do Americans do presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas?

    I was raised in England (dual citizen), so Dickens is the definitive authority: “Presents on Christmas Eve, as usual.”

    1. Christmas. Generally.

    2. Both, obviously! What are you, poor?

      1. Santa brings gifts Christmas morning (duh). I mean the presents you give each other.

        1. We always did Christmas Eve at the grandparents where gifts were given, then went back home to sleep and wait for Santa Claus to bring presents in the morning.

          1. We would always open just one present Xmas Eve — new pajamas — which we would wear that night, and thus look styling and clean in photos opening gifts Xmas morning.

        2. Christmas morning.

    3. 1 for the family on Christmas eve (generally something that we can do together that night) and the rest on Christmas.

      1. This is pretty common and something I did growing up

        You’d have a big family dinner (and in many cases invite family friends) and everyone would open one gift or exchange them.

        Christmas morning was much more about the ‘kids’ and their deep dive under the tree and shredding wrapping paper and eating stocking treats etc.

        1. I still remember some kid spewing chocolate-fondue-appearing vomit in church on Easter morning. Kind of took the edge off of the Crucifixion thing.

    4. My family does both. Both my mom and my dad are remarried so it’s the only way to get them in. I refuse to make my son travel anywhere on Christmas day like I had to do when I was a kid.

      1. Amen! We never had to travel as kids, but my wife’s family is all in town. Doing the Christmas routine with her family was as close as I got to breaking off our engagement. Between her mom, dad, and both sets of grandparents, we had 15-20 celebrations over 7 days. I was ready to pull my hair out on the 26th. When we have little trashmonsters, there will be a general travel ban during Christmas.

    5. Both. Especially with so many split-up/blended families.

    6. Bit of both.

      But I’m Canadian.

    7. In my experience most do on Christmas, but a good number of people do Christmas Eve.

    8. Dad’s family did presents and Polish
      dinner on Christmas Eve and my Mom’s family did Christmas day.

    9. As a kid it was one present on Christmas Eve then the rest in the morning.

  20. It’s meandering and sorely needs editing but I found this piece interesting: Home Computers Behind the Iron Curtain.

    Since no one brought politics into it (either in the traditional sense or in the emacs vs. vim sense), the corresponding HN thread is also interesting.

    1. Emacs!

        1. vi. It’s not a proper editor if you can order pizza from it or if compiling requires more than 30seconds.

          1. yy27p…..

            It appears it can be said too much.

            (Those of you who do not know what I said don’t know vi).

    2. Well the Soviet-Bloc youth figured out how to copy rock and roll records on old X-ray plates.

      http://www.forumusic.co.uk/for…..Ray-plates

    1. Aww, they’re adorable. And under the seized counterfeit consumer products rules the circus owes China, I don’t know, a billion dollars?

      1. Weirdest part is that the attached photo isn’t even one of the dogs referred to in the article, but a completely unrelated dog dyed to look like a panda, because that’s apparently a thing now:

        dog dyed like panda

        1. I think actual pictures of the circus’s “pandogs” are here but I don’t read Italian so can’t say for sure. Why they didn’t use these pics for the article, who knows?

        2. That’s hilarious. Tiger dogs, zebra dogs, camel dogs, etc… Oh, the huma… er… caninity.

      2. Aww, they’re adorable.

        They look happy anyway.

        Ethically i support the fake panda’s over using real ones.

        A panda’s existence in the wild seems shitty enough let alone in captivity. Dogs on the otherhand can be made content with a ball a bone some buddies and an area to run around in.

  21. I doubt the US is behind North Koreas connectivity problems, but here’s a suggestion for a hack that would really fuck with the North Koreans:

    Instead of taking the internet offline, infect them with a virus that turns OFF every firewall and every restriction, on every machine in the country, and redirects all of their news websites to CNN, Google News, and other news sources that will tell North Koreans the truth about North Korea.

    1. Anyone in NK who has internet access is part of the ruling elite anyways, so this wouldn’t really change anything.

    2. I’m sure the nomenklatura will turn against the regime that they run once they find out the truth about the outside world!

      1. Kim Jong Un will learn what his treacherous ministers have been up to and blow them all up.

    3. 12 people in said country have access, Haze. What the fuck are you thinking? Is this your positive wonderful lucky day?

      1. I’m sure it’s more than 12, since they are able to train an elite squad of hackers.

  22. Somebody keeps accidentally kicking the plug out of the wall that connects North Korea’s computers to the Internet.

    Someone keeps picking up the one phone in NK and it disconnects their modem.

  23. Daughter of dictator continues to act like dictator

    Unfortunately, the cited poll indicates most South Koreans support her behavior.

    …and in TIWTANLW news, that Lee Jung-hee chick ain’t so bad.

    1. Wait, what?

      This is about your Charlene Yi fetish, isn’t it?

      1. Well, she’s not nearly as good looking as Charlyne Yi, and it’s not a “fetish”. And stop othering me.

        Runs off sobbing

      2. Shit, HM. I love ya, and all, but you gotta watch that ability to whack-a-mole a libido like that

    2. Phil Robertson, Asia deputy director at Human Rights Watch

      Didn’t he used to be on Duck Dynasty? Nice promotion.

  24. Ohio homeowner told to take down his zombie nativity scene

    That seems like a pretty clear 1st Amendment violation by this cracker-ass suburb.

    1. It is unclear if Dixon will fight the town, but when one person on his Facebook page urged him to keep the display up, he responded, “Dangers my middle name.”

      Jasen Dixon draws a line.

    1. Craziness. Lots of crying, too.

    2. Was the psycho woman the daughter of a truck driver and were the girls related to Dennis Weaver?

    1. Wifey is still around? Damn. That brings back memories.

      1. Wifey is getting older and sweeter, Wart, like a great wine with a portal in it. A portal to fuckin lasers and vaginas.

        1. That seems to be a fucking protectoron out of Fallout 3 my goddamn fav game ever made for this fucking face.

          1. just bought Fallout New Vegas for $2.50

            I am not an RPG guy, but Ill give it a go.

            That Mordor game looks fucking awesome as well.

            I just started the Batman shit, which is action game goodness.

            Mostly, it’s my racing sim, that prompted me to actually start building a kit race car.

            Assetto Corsa , assuming you have proper wheel, pedals, etc. setup is the best program i have ever used in 35 yrs of gaming (way back to original adventure)

            Rocksmith 2014 is fucking awesome as well if you have elextric guitar (i have a few)

            amazing how fun it is

            1. God I fucking hate AND love you, you fucking whore…

              Play Fallout 3 GOTY from start to fuckin’ finish… you’ll fuckin play for goddamn weeks.

          2. THat is Robby the Robot from the classic 1950’s SciFi movie The Forbidden Planet

      2. Wifey is still around? Damn. That brings back memories.

        I think Oasis is still active as well.

  25. We (cops ) are WINNING

    backlash is awesome, american people wearing NYPD shirts, coming up to us and saying ‘fuck the protesters they are full of shit’, and doing what the polling data suggests – loving the police!!!

    the WORST thing that could happen to the anticop bigots is another assassination

    people getting fired left and right for posting “kill cops” etc on facebook!!!!

    bernie kerik speaking truth to power about the war on cops in Time magazine!

    WE ARE WINNING

    just like the bigots were wrong about legalized mj (i was right,s loopy et al were wrong in their predictions of feds fucking up legal mj in WA)… they are wrong about cop protests

    what was inevitable is finally happening.

    the american people are rising up, in sympathy with cops (we are seeing it grassroots every day from EVERY demographic, income levels, etc.) and saying “COPS FUCK YEA”

    and “ANTICOP BIGOTS FUCK YOU!!”

    an idiot here told me police unions are on their way out

    lol

    another reasonoid idiot prediction that will fail

    BOOYA BERNIE KERIK, SERPICO, NYPD (omg, – they shot 30 people out of way over 8 million the other year. they rae bloodthirsty)!

    1. Smooches. Lovya, sweetie. Cops are boobies and you’re a darling cheerleader. Can you bend over and show me your lips and pooper, darlin’?

    2. Way too much sweetness in this post. Overflowin’ with cop sperm spillin’ out of Dunphy’s gorgeous tight lips…

      Swallow you fucking whore!

      1. again, with the homophobic rubbish that is supposed to be an insult but isnt

        i have some cop friends who like sperm in their mouth and nothing wrong with that, but i prefer the other team, thanks for asking!!!

        reason bigotry – it aint just anticop, it’s homophobic when they get riled up!

        1. I’ve never had a problem with sperm in the mouth, sweet boy. You want to cum in mine? Let me know? Place and time. As long as I get to shove my fat cock in your pooper.

        2. reason bigotry – it aint just anticop

          Not sure being anti-cop is bigotry. Are you a race? Do you want to be seen as a creed? A culture? A Sex?

          Anyway in a true libertarian utopia shouldn’t cops be seen as an evil to be looked down upon?

          In a dystopia wouldn’t that be even more so?

          Anyway some dude got killed for selling smokes on the corner and if my car stereo got jacked i know no cop would lift a finger to catch the crook who stole it.

          So fuck cops and fuck you Dunphy.

          1. “if my car stereo got jacked i know no cop would lift a finger to catch the crook who stole it”

            Hey, the middle finger is still a finger.

        3. “the WORST thing that could happen to the anticop bigots is another assassination”

          Have you considered volunteering for the cause ?

    3. SERPICO

      So Dunphy explictly comes out in favor of murdering cops to cover up criminal behavior behavior by his buddies.

      1. I didn’t say I was in favor of murdering cops

        I am in favor of Serpico because he fought actual corruption and risked his life to do so

        i havent risked my life, but i’ve fought it in civil court and by testifying in court and to IIU

        cop corruption sucks and serpico is a fucking hero

        and yes, they tried to get him killed for it

        he is a hero for all time

        1. Serpico is on the protestors’ side:

          Frank Serpico says police have ‘lost their credibility’ with recent killings

          Meanwhile your gangbanger NYPD buddies still think he’s a rat:

          Cop to Serpico: Stop Slandering Us

          So go home and hang out with your thug buddies, scum.

          Oinkies!

    4. The cop winners should know Dunphy love his little penis smooooooches…

      Unzip his 24 year-old trousers at the FOP playground and vodka tonic his little dick while punching his chocolate spot- the shitter he never cleans because he’s too busy trying on miniskirts to cheer for his upper buddies…

      ‘Cuz dunphy is a weakling in the big chain of big boys…

      Dunphy is the choir boy to Cop Priests…

      1. more homophobic and homoerotic nonsense

        bigots are bigots across the board, inevitably

        just like some alleged liberals are some of the most racist bigoted fucks i have ever met

        here’s a hint. i am not homosexual but plenty of cops are and in my agency, we have plenty of “out” homosexuals and nobody gives a shit

        granted, lesbians WAY more likely to come out than male homosexuals and way more common for a # of reasons (lesbian women disproportionately attracted to “risky” jobs and masculine jobs)

        we have a whole precinct where the female cops gravitate to that happent o be lesbian.

        it’s hilarious

        one of my best friends is competitive MMA athlete, lesbian cop.

        yes, we have some bigots like you

        but most of us don’t give two flying fucks which gendfer you scthup

        so lay off the bigoted (well, different kind of bigotry this time)
        silliness

        it doesn’t insult ME

        IT INSULTS YOU

        gay cop recently told me i have a nice ass (squats work).

        that’s a compliment

        hth

        1. Are you a troolio lesbian cop?

    5. backlash is awesome, american people wearing NYPD shirts, coming up to us and saying ‘fuck the protesters they are full of shit’, and doing what the polling data suggests – loving the police!!!

      This reminds me of those pro-cop protests in the Watchmen comic.

    6. “We (cops ) are WINNING”

      All that had to happen for that was two policemen getting murdered for being police. Don’t you think the endzone dance is a little unseemly?

      Which leaves untouched the real need for reform of police and their protocols for dealing with the citizenry lest there be more needless deaths.

      Everybody loses, because this was not a contest in the first place.

      1. “We (cops ) are WINNING”

        Yeah, just like 2.5 Men star Charlie Sheen.

        #winning

  26. btw, assassination aside, NYPD is one of the SAFEST PD’s in the country and certainly near the top in safety for a big safety

    it is a safe city for everybody – cops and average joes

    our agency – cops get shot at roughly 3 times the rate NYPD cops do (recent year, 13 NYPD cops shot but none killed due to ballistic vests) – out of 35000!!!

    That is safe as fuck!

    and we shoot bad guys at about 4 times the rate NYPD does – again, the stats are consistent

    that being said, NYPD cops are rightly on their guard extra, as they should be!

    regardless, we are winning. anticop fuckers getting fired for posting kill cops on their facebook pages and american people fed up with bigoted broad brushed anticop bigotry, just like any other broad brush bigotry

    they know (reason elitism aside that constantly calls the american people dumb) what’s going on!

    Thank you American people, and thank you to my fellow peace officers for serving and protecting all, even fuckmunch anticop bigots

    and thank you reason taxpayers for funding successful lawsuits against police misconduct, and thank my union and my lawyer for keeping cops honest!!!

    smoooches!

    1. Praise the citizens for being armed and never needing a cop like me for 12 years in hardcore ghetto territory as a youngster.

      NO COP needed. I took care of it. The cops were lame pussies who never ONCE gave a shit about white boys in the dark hoods as much as they scream like orgasmic pussies about serving and protecting… HAHAHHAAHAHAHAHHA

      Dunphy is a union p.r. fuck… He’s never served on REAL streets, he’s never interacted with REAL hardcore society.

      DUNPHY is a FUCKING FAKE!

      1. lol

        “real streets”

        my best friend shot and killed by BGD fuckstick.

        yea, we don’t work the “real streets”

        lol

        again, my agency has over three times the officer involved shooting rate as NYPD

        it is what it is

        i also worked deep undercover for 2 yrs, which according to “experts” is statistically over 20 times as dangerous as patrol work

        supposedly only 30-50 officers and feds in the ENTIRE COUNTRY are working that kind of assignment at any given time

        booya UC

        1. Way fuckin’ more citizens killed on ‘real’ streets than silly cops.

  27. Harvard students’ SodaStream ban fizzles after president steps in

    “These machines can be seen as a microaggression to Palestinian students and their families and like the University doesn’t care about Palestinian human rights,” Rachel Sandalow-Ash, a Harvard student and member of the school’s Progressive Jewish Alliance, told the paper.

    1. I posted about this harvard bullshit the other day

      “microaggression” the new go-to term on my facebook page.

      I turned around and bought a few sodastreams as gifts

      FUCK THOSE ASSHOLES IN ACADEMIA

      booya FIRE

      btw, Israel has produced an ASTONISHING # of inventions that save countless lives in the medical, scientific fields,e tc.

      the very advanced field bandage that is credited with saving Gabriele Gifford’s (sp?) life?

      Israeli invention

    2. The company, which makes flavoring and carbonating machines, has defended its factories in the territory, saying it has created jobs for hundreds of Palestinians.

      The company creates 100s of jobs for Palestinians, who are usually economically marginalized by Arab governments, the Israeli government, and the Palestinian Authority alike.

      So if the company’s presence in the West Bank is of a net benefit to the average Palestinian, then what’s the basis for a boycott by those who claim to be concerned about Palestinians?

      1. They’re wasting time working instead of launching rockets.

      2. Equal parts labor theory of value and the mania to to say fashionable things in order to get laid. Did I get it right?

        *Chugs liter bottle of Soda Stream product? burps something that sounds like “Solidarno??!”*

  28. Dunphy is a nice, sweet old lady lesbian who has an axe to grind, boo’s.

    1. No axe.

      Love my job, love my family and very happy with how things are going

      WE ARE WINNING

      it “seemed” bad at first, but the American people are coming through LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO

      however, to paraphrase, i am a lesbian trapped in a man’s body

      otoh, I prefer strong women, women with muscles, unlike many reason cowards who fear any woman who could kick their ass, which doesnt take much when yuor sole exercise is pounding th e keyboard from yer mama’s basement and chewing on hot pockets while she wipes yer ass

      hth

      smooches

      1. Smooches, why is your team different than America? Creepy.

      2. Love my job, love my family and very happy with how things are going

        Yes, as evidenced by the horse trough of benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and/or painkillers that fuel your inchorent rambling.

      3. WE ARE WINNING

        Yes. And the all caps, combined with repeating it multiple times across multiple threads stands as evidence to the degree of certainty you have with that statement.

  29. bernie kerik speaking truth to power about the war on cops in Time magazine!

    Bernie Kerik, who went to jail for corruption and tax fraud? That Bernie Kerik?

    Fuck off, you addle-brained shitbag.

    1. But Kerik was railroaded by the pigs, man!

    2. Yeah and this delusional psycho, who’s a member of the most powerful arm (police) of the most powerful entity (government) imagines himself “fighting the power!” Sometimes he can seem reasonable and rational, but his insanity inevitably shows through.

  30. Has anyone been following the upcoming Hollis V. Holder SCOTUS case? I would like to see a Reason piece on it.

    1. Also Watson V Holder.

  31. A baggage handler for Delta is accused of helping smuggle firearms on plane trips to sell in New York.

    TERROR- IN THE SKY!

    Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson said Tuesday that the investigation was “deeply troubling” — not only for the havoc the gun running unleashed on the streets but because of the vulnerability to acts of terrorism on air travel that it revealed.

    “If they can put guns on the plane this time,” he told reporters, “they could have easily put a bomb on one of those planes.”

    Yes, of course. Now go change your Depends.

  32. I’m still going to see “Into the Woods” instead

    How’s your Barbra Streisand collection doing?

  33. Sounds like a very good deal to me dude.

  34. I spend few CPU cycles cogitating about morality. It’s well covered by others. But the Sony/Interview thing got my attention. Is it OK, in a moral sense, to specifically depict the execution or punishment of another living person, no matter how vile he is, in a work art/entertainment? I have made no decision, but it sure grates against my German Roman Catholic upbringing.

    1. “. Is it OK, in a moral sense, to specifically depict the execution or punishment of another living person, no matter how vile he is, in a work art/entertainment? I have made no decision, but it sure grates against my German Roman Catholic upbringing.”

      I’m confused = you’re saying The Crucifixion is trademarked?

      I mean, as a Catholic myself, I appreciate that the entire basis of our religion is based on a ‘torture/execution’. is the idea that we should now limit this sort of thing to prevent unfair competition?

      1. Ha ha, I see how you’re lighting the me signal, but Ima just say Merry Christmas.

      2. I think making a movie (writing a song, or whatever) about killing a living person is in bad taste. Nothing more.
