Skill Sets of the Hardcore Unemployed


Someone, somewhere, please hire this sooper-genius!: Sharief Zakher, 26, of Los Angeles, "flies" a june bug that he had tied to the end of a string during the Occupy LA protest at City Hall in Los Angeles.

Is it just me or do the photos of the folks that show up at these rallies cause snow blindness due to their overwhelmingly white mounds of flesh? Oh, wait, that was the Tea Party, wasn't it?

To quote myself (excellent source): "I try to become more cynical everyday, but lately I just can't keep up."

"Sharief Zakher?" Doesn't sound that white to me.

The OWS in DC have been given a four month extension on their permission to stink up Freedom Plaza and Lafayette Park. Four. Frikkin'. Months.

Heaven help downtown DC; but then they deserve to have this insolent vermin festering in their tents right under their noses, jamming the Starbucks restrooms, and perhaps, occasionally, defecating on a Federal Protective Service vehicle as an act of defiance, or something, don't they?

It isn't just you, Gerard. And I think this wins for funniest line of the year:

"I try to become more cynical everyday, but lately I just can't keep up."

I rode in two huge bicycling events in Los Angeles this past weekend. Both rides passed right by all the "occupy" morons, and afforded me the opportunity to insult and ridicule a few of them face to face. Cheap thrills, I know, but hey- ya' gotta' have some fun some time.

Sara, I believe it is an old Lily Tomlin quote.

Wait a darned second! As a kid summering in the Ozarks of Arkansas, tucked away on an old dirt road, near the rickety wooden bridge that ran over a "crik" we young uns would fly June bugs too, and catch fireflies and put them in jars. Nature gave us great toys!

We also used outhouses there, a modern amenity the occupiers don't seem to bother with, I hear.
