Malory: “Why was he dressed like Hitler?”

His movie was “the dictator” amazing speech on peace…you ought to watch it, it’s a notable classic

I know, I just couldn’t resist an Archer reference.

Notice something in common in these photos?

It’s not what you think

I gave it away in the third pic

That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…

This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.

This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.

The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.

A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.

I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.

Ferguson police: We can’t release the autopsy report because that might bias future juries.

Ferguson police: *releases footage of Brown stealing from a store and having a physical confrontation with an employee*

Ferguson police: This event has absolutely nothing to do with why Brown was killed. It’s not important at all. It obviously isn’t meant as bias either.

Everyone else:

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Headlines We’d Rather See this Week
Because the actual news is too damn depressing.

"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This

This just punched me in the heart.

This really hit me hard. I’m just about in tears.

For those who don’t believe this is real, I suggest you check out L. Craig Schoonmaker’s blog at

He’s one of the early gay pride activists and helped promote the term gay pride. He is also a man full of hate.

(I guess I should not assume that everybody knows what that initialism means but make absolutely plain what “LGBT” means: “Lesbian,Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered”. At least the last two terms refer to fictitious creatures of fevered imaginations, not real people.)  I am decidedly not “bisexual”, and refuse the notion that “bisexuals” exist. Nor is ANYBODY “transgendered”. All of that is just crazy talk by and about people who have no idea what reality is. Sexual reality, scientific reality, is rooted in biology , sex chromosomes, X or Y, not flying around in the sky or outer space.
"Bisexuals" and "transgendered" people know full well they are just out-and-out, simple homosexuals or lesbians. They just don’t have the courage and INTEGRITY to own up to it. I am so tired of maladjusted losers in the gay world. Tired beyond any remnant of patience. 

That’s just from his front page, one of his biggest rants is at

Over the decades, various loons expanded, diluted, and self-confuted the Movement by incorporating “bisexuals” — that is, confused people who so hate themselves and everyone else that they can never commit to anyone, of either gender; transvestites (called also “transgendered people”) — utterly insane, self-despising losers who want the world to accept their astoundingly mad delusion that a person could be born “the wrong gender”, that a man could be “a woman trapped in the body of a man”, and vice-versa; and then, in some formulations, “Queers” (to form a presumably single, unified but actually nonexistent “LGBTQ” community). Never mind that “Queer” is the exact equivalent of “Nigger”. In the case of “Jersey Pride” (Pride? It is to laff!), they decided to include the “Intersexed”, people who are neither here nor there. Never mind that there are very few genetic intersexes (Wikipedia says the best approximation is 0.018% of the general population, or about 1,584 people, of all ages, in New Jersey), and some of those that do exist are sterile and retarded, because distinct gender is fundamental to human functioning.

It only gets worse and worse the more you read his stuff, but he’s not the only one, and it’s more common than one would have ever imagined.
