7:21 A.M. Diamonds Are Bullshit ! …

I’ve always felt that the concept of ‘ the diamond ring ‘ was a complete waste of money ! … It has absolutely no functional value … Far too expensive for what it is and depreciates in value the second you purchase it …

I could neither understand why men would waste their hard earned money on them , nor why women coveted them so dearly …

Until I read the following article …

American males enter adulthood through a peculiar rite of passage ; They spend most of their savings on a shiny piece of rock …

They could invest the money in assets that will compound over time and someday provide a nest egg. Instead, they trade that money for a diamond ring, which isn’t much of an asset at all. As soon as you leave the jeweler with a diamond , it loses over 50 percent of its value. Americans exchange diamond rings as part of the engagement process, because in 1938 De Beers decided that they would like us to …

Prior to a stunningly successful marketing campaign 1938, Americans occasionally exchanged engagement rings , but wasn’t a pervasive occurrence. Not only is the demand for diamonds a marketing invention , but diamonds aren’t actually that rare. Only by carefully restricting the supply has De Beers kept the price of a diamond high. Countless American dudes will attest that the societal obligation to furnish a diamond engagement ring is both stressful and expensive …

But here’s the thing … This obligation only exists because the company that stands to profit from it willed it into existence. So here is a modest proposal :

Let’s agree that diamonds are bullshit and reject their role in the marriage process. Let’s admit that as a society we got tricked for about a century into coveting sparkling pieces of carbon , but it’s time to end the nonsense.

9:13 A.M. A British model was drugged and stuffed in a suitcase to be sold as a sex slave …

Mar2015WAWHeader

The British model who police say was kidnapped in Italy last summer to be auctioned online as a sex slave suffered physical violence – including being drugged and “brutally transported inside a suitcase,” according to Italian investigators.The grim details on the alleged abduction of Chloe Ayling were revealed Wednesday during the trial of 30-year-old Lukasz Pawel Herba, according to the Italian news agency ANSA.

Herba, a Pole who lives part-time in England, was charged with kidnapping Ayling in July after she was lured from London to a fake photo shoot at an abandoned storefront in Milan, according to Italian police.As reported by The Washington Post, Ayling said last summer that her kidnappers were preparing to “auction” her on the dark Web, a part of the internet where user identities are hidden through encryption, allowing them to buy and sell criminal goods. The kidnappers were trying to sell Ayling, 20, on the internet as a sex slave for $300,000, according to Italian police and media accounts. Ayling told Italian investigators at the time that she was drugged, gagged, bound and stuffed into a duffel bag, then transported in the trunk of a car to a remote farmhouse outside Turin. There, she slept with her hands and feet tied to furniture, the investigators said.During Herba’s trial Wednesday, investigators said the model was put under “psychological pressures” during the abduction, ANSA reported.

Herba was arrested July 17, shortly after freeing Ayling and dropping her off at the British consulate in Milan, police said. British and Italian media reported that the kidnappers freed Ayling after learning she was the mother of a 2-year-old boy.

MORBNOTE ; So nice the guy’s got a conscience !!! … If she didn’t have a child tho … Perfectly alright to kidnap , torture , abuse and hold for ransom !!! …

10:32 A.M. Nancy Pelosi tries to shut down congress for good !!! …

Pelosi2

The proposal will likely require the support of some Democrats if it is to pass the House. Some liberal Democrats opposed it because it does not include an agreement to protect from deportation hundreds of thousands of ‘ Dreamers ‘ Young people brought illegally to the United States as children. In voicing her opposition , House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi set the record for the longest continuous speech in House history, an EIGHT-HOUR effort that included reading letters from Dreamers pleading to be allowed to stay in the United States …

 

That is just far TOO BRUTAL to even begin to comprehend !!! …

Having to sit there and listen to this stupid left wing bitch babble and bleat for EIGHT HOURS !!!…

5:44 A.M. Taco Bell adds fries to menu …

Taco Bell is finally serving fries.On Thursday, the fast-food chain added $1 nacho fries to the menu for a limited time. Instead of taking the classic fast-food route, Taco Bell tops its fries with a spicy seasoning and serves them with a side of nacho cheese.

Customers can also order “supreme” fries for $2.49 or the larger serving of “Bell Grande” fries for $3.49, served with even more toppings: beef, pico de gallo, nacho cheese, sour cream, and other add-ons like guacamole, bacon, and jalapeno peppers.

McDonald’s and other burger chains need to think about the power, the influence, the business implications that these fries could have. To see how Taco Bell’s new fries measure up to the competition, we tried them for ourselves. Taco Bell’s emphasis is on the cheese rather than the ketchup. It’s the right decision. While the nacho cheese isn’t by any means gourmet, it provides a rich and gloopy satisfaction and immediately sets the fries apart from their ketchup-dipped rivals.

MORBNOTE ; Loathing ketchup , and into the spices , I’m all for this … But that looks like half a spud there so it better only be a buck !!! …

7:04 A.M. Stale Cap’n Crunch ?!!! … Blasphemy !!! …

An Alabama man allegedly beat his roommate after discovering that the victim had failed to properly seal a box of Cap’n Crunch cereal , which had gone stale, police report. Duane Barry Smith, 52, was arrested Friday for domestic violence following a confrontation with the man he shares a residence in Moundville , a town outside Tuscaloosa.

According to police , the victim said that Smith became upset upon discovering the stale cereal and blamed him for failing to keep the Cap’n Crunch fresh. Smith was especially perturbed since he is missing teeth and had difficulty consuming the stale cereal.

Well let’s be honest … The whole idea is to eat the bowlful before the little tidbits get soggy in the milk in the first place !!! … Can’t be having them soft and stale to begin with !!! … We’re talkin’ Cap’n CRUNCH after all !!! …

6:16 A.M. Ontario Tories … political suicide …

As I was perusing the news this morning , as is the usual routine to start my day around 5:00 a.m. , I chanced upon a few articles of typical media  amplified ‘ non – issues ‘  then stumbled on to Rex. The Murphster doesn’t get much on the main pages and I neglect to punch his name in to search … I shall jot down a reminder to myself to do so in the furure. I tend to agree with him 90 odd percent of the time but no matter what his opinion is … He has a marvelously witty , somewhat sarcastic ( which I REALLY appreciate ! ) style of thought presentation plus a refreshing depth of vocabulary … A seemingly lost virtue in today’s ‘ spell it incorrectly enough times and Webster will change it’s dictionary  for you ” society …

Take it away Mr. Murphy …

Save for its defiant originality, decapitation by one’s own hand has little to recommend it as a political tactic. Apart from the advanced demands it places on the carpet cleaners, it leaves very little opportunity for followup. There is, for example the teasing question of where, or even if, to place the mike at subsequent press briefings. Many are therefore puzzled, even to the outer limits of perplexity, that the Ontario Tories have twice called in the guillotine as the opening gambit for this year’s June election campaign. In the words of the prime minister’s favourite poet, these past two weeks the Ontario Tories “went downward to darkness on extended wings.” …

Let us reprise the highlights ;

Less than 11 days ago the Tories, under the pristine leadership of Patrick Brown, were in clear and present danger of winning the election soon to fall on this province. Premier Kathleen Wynne was at a place in the polls vividly captured by the verbal cameo “lower than a snake’s belly.” High officials of the Liberal party had been dragged through court proceedings. Outrage at power prices had roiled the populace.

The shamanry — pundits, pollsters and prognosticators — all agreed : The Tories could fall asleep for the next few months, and victory was theirs. Fortunately, they took stock of the peril in time, and proceeded with the flair for which they have won renown, to blow up their chances in as comprehensive a detonation as the supplies at hand allowed.

First, that tornado of incontinent zeal sweeping the continent, #MeToo, came down on the political trailer park, briskly funnelling leader Patrick Brown from the scene, and then extending its ruinating siphon to the party president, Rick Dykstra. Leader and president, both gone within four days. Now, as Lady Bracknell might observe, it is one thing to lose the new leader of your party, but only true virtuosos can throw in a party president a few days later. Some might haggle that these “losses” could not be directly credited to the party itself, but I fear this can only be argued by those ignorant of the more recent history of this baffling institution. Misfortune doesn’t just pay random visits to the Ontario Conservative party: it recognizes the party as its home and native land. It has fulsomely and with abandon been handing off elections to the provincial Liberals for nearly a full decade now. Does its constitution make losing obligatory?

On the experience of recent times the question is reasonable.

MORBNOTE ; Now , to be fair , old Rex has mellowed somewhat with age ( or maybe we’ve all just gotten used to him ! ) … But in his younger days you’d tend to cross over the street if he was comin’ your way down the sidewalk !!! … I mean Marty Feldman at least was kinda cute in a somewhat warped way … But THIS guy ?!! …
