Protesters and Pepper Spray

Here in Columbus we now have a curfew.  Starting last night (Saturday, 5/30/20) at 10:00 PM and ending the next morning at 6:00 AM, no one is allowed to peacefully assemble for the purposes of political protest (or any other reason, because every time you get unsupervised youth congregating in a group without a clear purpose, you get destruction of private property and various other crimes)...

Can everyone see where I'm going with this?

I hope so.  Keep reading for some good news about the riots in Columbus last night.  As usual, those who object to free speech, politically incorrect statements, white privilege, black privilege... whatever.  Read at your own risk.

George Floyd Fallout

By now I'm assuming that everyone who might be reading this hound knows who George Floyd was and how he died - or was murdered, or simply cashed in his chips.  If not, follow this link and scroll down a way: Fox News Link, or read the summary.

In summary, George Floyd got busted when some nameless employee at a grocery store dropped a dime on him.  He-she-or-it told the cops that Floyd was passing funny money in the form of counterfeit twenties. Four cops showed up:

Derek Chauvin, who put the cuffs on Floyd, threw him to the ground, and then put his knee on Floyd's neck until he stopped breathing - and pretty much everything else. Chauvin was assisted by Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and Alexander Kueng.  The whole thing with the knee on the neck was recorded on video by an innocent bystander, then released into the wild.

All four cops are now ex-cops, having been fired.

George Floyd died on Monday, May 25, 2020 (Memorial Day) around 8:30 PM at a local hospital, but for my money he was probably already dead before they loaded into the meat wagon.  On Tuesday, the four officers involved were fired.  As of today, Derek Chauvin has been arrested.  We'll see what he's charged with.

Now for the point of this wildfire.

Mother-In-Law Joke

I can't remember where I got this, but I thought it was good enough to steal and reprint without permission or credit to the publisher.  Whoever it is - thanks!


I don't know just who started this particular meme, but here's my every day carry, AKA EDC. At least, that's what I suppose EDC stands for.

Quora Question: What's the Pointe?

I'm bored.  I'm surfing around the 'net, and got a question from Quora.  You'd think they would have learned by now.  I predict this one goes a week, but we'll see.

Warning: Not safe for work.  Your mileage may vary.  Void where prohibited.  Etc., ad nauseam.

Sunday Morning

In the middle of a deadly dull afternoon, I stumbled over to Home on the Range where I read A River Rogue, and was inspired to recall the ocean and the beach at Jacksonville (FL) and the way I'd spend my Sunday mornings.

Rimworld - The Rift

Here's a good read if you like science fiction or space opera.  Author J.L. Curtis has just released Rimworld - The Rift on Amazon.  Here's the back cover:
Danny Ortega was a failure. He couldn't tolerate the implant to be a starship captain...

But Danny Ortega has run his deep space research vessel Ghost alone for years, flaky AI and all, mapping the most unstable and unexplored regions of the Rift for the Cartographers Guild. When his latest mission lands in a mass graveyard of ships, including some ships out of legend, lost for hundreds of years, the guild isn't happy with him.

He picks up a misfit crew out of the asteroids and the games begin!

Turns out he'll need them not just for research and salvage, but to help him keep his ship! As word gets out that he has artifacts and is returning remains, Danny finds he's gone from chasing a prize to becoming one himself...

Unfortunately for his enemies, Danny didn't get his own ship by being an easy target or giving up. His odd connections and crew have plenty of surprises up their sleeves, too!
At $4.99 it's a steal, and since most everyone is out of work right now you should do yourself and your S.O. a favor and pick up a copy.  It'll keep you entertained for hours and your Significant Other can go about their business in peace without you underfoot.

Pleas and Bargains (and credit to Henry)

Here's the lowdown.

(click to keep reading.  SJWs, Moonbats, and anyone of self-proclaimed high moral fiber should take a pass on this, as the following content will likely give you an apoplectic grahn mal seizure, and I think we can all agree that watching an SJW lose whatever passes for their mind while break-dancing on the sidewalk... disregard this warning and keep reading.)
