The Gadfly apologizes for the dearth of postings this past week -- this pesky thing called earning a living has kept him at bay from his journalistic skullduggery.
Nonetheless, The Gadfly is back.
Let's take a quick look at the interesting things that have occurred over the past several days or so while The Gadfly has been off being a productive member of society.
First off, it has been a banner week for dirty fucking hippie vindication - oh my - indeed it has.
Oh lordy, where shall we begin? . . . .
How about here:
There’s some sort of unofficial birthday/Iron Dog-type/snowmachine party in Anchorage. A nice, mellow party, until the Palin’s show up. There’s beer, of course, and maybe other things. Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t. At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, “Don’t you know who I am!” And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!” No, it’s what happens when the former First Family of Alaska comes knocking. As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose.
At the time of the incident, none of the involved parties wanted to press charges and no arrests were made. However, the case is still an active investigation and is being reviewed by APD and the Municipal Prosecutors Office. Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident. Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/sarah-palin-family-reportedly-involved-drunken-brawl
Booze, screaming women, shirtless men thumping their chests and flipping the bird, bloody noses, and taunts of hillbillyism . . . . sigh . . . . The Gadfly does not ever - FUCKING EVER - want to hear a conservative talking snidely about "Bubba" Bill Clinton again. Ever. Oh - and John McCain - Fuck You for bringing this profoundly boorish woman and her equally boorish brood to the forefront of American politics - your special place in hell awaits you.
New details have emerged in an alleged road rage incident involving Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman.
On Tuesday, Zimmerman allegedly threatened a motorist's life during a road rage incident. Matthew Apperson, 35, said he was listening to music in his car when he was verbally assailed by two men in a truck at a stop light in Lake Mary, Florida.
Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett told CWKMG that the man recognized the truck driver as Zimmerman. The man said Zimmerman, who was carrying a gun, asked, "Do you know who I am?" before saying, "I'll f***ing kill you."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/13/george-zimmerman-road-rage_n_5815120.html
Now that we have yet another firearms tainted incident with this asshole - remember Zimmerman threatened his wife with a gun last year - let's talk about how conservatives, led by the hyenas at Fox "News," were the biggest defenders of George Zimmerman, and were cocksure certain of his innocence and of 17 year old Trayvon Martin's thuggery -shall we? Once again, The Gadfly does not want to ever - FUCKING EVER - hear a conservative defend the "honor" of George Fucking Zimmerman, ever again. And Fuck you Sean Hannity for being this murdering loser's biggest fucking card-carrying disciple in the media.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah elementary school teacher who was carrying a concealed firearm at school accidentally shot herself in the leg when the weapon discharged in a faculty bathroom shortly before classes started Thursday morning, officials said.
The teacher at Westbrook Elementary School, in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville, was severely injured when the bullet entered and exited her leg, and she was rushed to a hospital, Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley said. She was in good condition and alert at the hospital by midmorning, Horsley said.http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2014/09/11/teacher-carrying-concealed-gun-shoots-herself-leg-school/g0aGkKXvjBlDKTS7aZJfKL/story.html
Too bad there wasn't a good guy with a gun there in the shitter there to prevent . . . oh wait . . . . sigh..... With all of these conservative state legislatures passing these increasingly loose gun-goon laws allowing the open carry of firearms, pretty much fucking anywhere now, it really is just a matter of time before some teacher ends up killing a student by just such an accident as depicted in this story, or worse yet, where some teacher blows some kid's head off because he/she "felt" threatened by the little bastard's immature attitude. The Gadfly and others have said it over and over again, that these insanely loose gun laws are going to turn this country into a fucking shooting gallery and that stories like this are going to become the every day norm. Truly - the gun goon asshattery has has only just begun.
But this is your "exceptional" America people. Accept it and live with the consequences, or do something to change it. It really is up to you.
