Hey Man, Know Where A Rich Guy Can Score Some Fentanyl?


Nebraska Nice. Thats us. We are so nice. Midwest values. We work harder than everybody else. We are so nice.

Then why do we have so many creeps on death row here? There are currently 11 10 men on death row here in Nebraska. We have guys who murder babies and feed them to the dogs. We have 3 bank robbers who just shot everybody in the place. We have a guy they made a movie about called Boys Dont Cry who murdered a transgender. We have a guy who strangled his cell mate for talking too much. We have a crazy fucker with face tattoos who killed a bunch of people including a pretty blonde white woman. We have a guy who killed a 7 year old boy by drowning him. We have a guy who tracked down a 15 year old girl delivering newspapers and raped and killed her. We have a guy who raped and killed a 12 year old girl named Amber Harris with a hammer. We have a guy who bound two men with electrical cord while he robbed the house, then shot them dead before he left. And we had a guy who shot two cabdrivers in the back of the head to steal their money for drugs and porn.

Carey Dean Moore murdered Reuel Van Ness, a 47 year old cab driver trying to make ends meet to support his 10 kids, and Maynard Helgeland, another 47 year old cabbie trying to get his life back together. I mean this horror happened so many years ago, I was still in my early 20's. Today, in 2018, some 39 years later, Moore was murdered by the State of Nebraska. You may think great, finally, but the way we got here is disturbing.

Our Governor, a talking scrotum named Pete Ricketts, believes that he should get whatever he wants because he's rich. And what Pete Ricketts wants is to be Trump. What he says goes. Ricketts is the Governor of this state for one reason. He had an R next to his name on the ballot. Nobody likes this rich asshole. Hell when he tried to buy himself a Senate seat years ago, he picked up about 35% of the vote. Against a guy with a D next to his name.

Pete Ricketts doesnt get what he wants? He attempts to buy it. A legislator votes against his lets be Kansas agenda and what does Daddy Warbucks do? He funds a candidate to primary the offenders ass. Does this work? Well it depends on the IQ of whatever district is on the line. Dumb counties do whatever Baldy McBaldy wants and vote in the puppet while smart counties tell him to go fuck himself and the Cubs suck.

The Nebraska Legislature, a band of 49 people with very few whack jobs considering we are Nebraska. A couple of years back this same Legislature got enough votes to repeal the death penalty citing how much money it was sucking out of the state coffers and citing the fact we never use it and for many years had no method to even carry it out.

Ricketts vetoed the bill. The Legislature override the veto and the death penalty went away. At least until Ricketts threw a temper tantrum and opened his wallet to begin a petition to get the question on the ballot. Ricketts spent damn near a million dollars of his Daddy's own money to make sure he got to kill somebody. It got on the ballot and thanks to the Low IQ counties, 61% of Nebraska Nice voters said hell yeah we wanna kill.

So the death penalty came back to Nebraska Nice. Now how to do it. No drug company will sell you drugs so you can kill someone. So Nebraska began to go to the back alleys of the world to make drug deals with India and guys in trench coats, Once the drug companies found out that Nebraska was just some two bit junkie looking to score, they demanded their drugs back. Nebraska refused but the drugs went bad anyway so we again were jonesin for a fix. Eventually thru some back door pharmacy led by what has to be a truly awful person. the talking testicle bag Ricketts had his drugs. And then he got a willing inmate named Carey Dean Moore.

Moore didnt want to be alive any longer. Ricketts popped a boner. Moore withdrew all appeals and then today happened. Peter Ricketts, pro life Catholic and better than you, got to kill a guy. It only cost him a million dollars. Funny how if I spend a million dollars, or more likely a hundred, to whack a guy, even a bad guy, I'd go to death row myself. But Ricketts? He'll probably get re-elected. The Republican Party is truly the party of assholes.

The thing that bothers me the most about the talking taint Pete Ricketts is this. Ricketts is a guy who really hates drugs. He sued Colorado to keep marijuana illegal even though voters there said hey fuck off Nebraska Nice come smoke with us. Ricketts then jacked up local yokel Sheriffs out in the low IQ counties and the State Patrol, a band of minimum wage cops, to hassle the shit out of people coming back from Colorado with some legal pot. Ricketts just hates it when you buy legal drugs and bring them back to Nebraska.

Unfortunately for humanity, Ricketts has no problem buying illegal opiods in a back alley from a shady drug dealer so he can kill a guy.

After all, he spent a million to do it and what Petey wants, Petey gets.

BlackkKlansman!


Spike Lee makes movies that force you to think. He polarizes, he insults, he pokes the white bear and he doesnt give a rats ass what you think. Blackkklansman is one of those movies. Though I cant prove it, I think two white folks behind us were so offended they stormed out before the credits rolled with a loud LETS GO!. Maybe they were late for something, perhaps they were double parked, I have no idea, but something about that movie pissed them off.

BlackkKlansman is the story of a Colorado Springs police office, Ron Stallworth, who as the first black cop in the CSPD called a phone number one day that belonged to the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and started a conversation. This conversation moved onto an undercover operation in which a white cop became Ron Stallworth in person as they worked to take down the KKK in Colorado.

Lee begins the movie with the end of Gone With The Wind where the traitorous Confederate wounded lay all over the ground and Dixie plays in the background. Lee also throws in a few snippets of Birth of a Nation that the local Klan watches with great glee. Hey Spike Lee knows his history.

BlackkKlansman explores the times of 1972 when this event took place. The Nixon posters, the Afros, the black power movement, the racism of the police towards the first black officer, and the fact that things aint changed much in 46 years. America First, white power, police racism. Its all here and any mention of it draws laughter from the audience who I assume are mostly hip to Spikes message. A scene where Ron expresses his disbelief America could EVER elect a white supremacist to the Presidency was ALL of us just two years ago. It drew lots of nervous laughter.

The acting is top notch, especially by John David Washington (yes THAT Washington family) as Ron Stallworth, Adam Driver as the Jewish undercover cop who infiltrates the Klan, and by Topher Grace as a sleaze dripping David Duke. The directing is top notch also. It covers the black power movement as well. It makes you long for those days. The message delivered by Kwame Ture' at a Black Student Union event rang as true listening to it now as it must have in 1972.

But the ending. That ending. Wow! While the movie has it humor, and it really does have some funny scenes, nothing shuts up a crowd like this ending did. There was dead silence, Schindlers List type silence, as the final two minutes played out. I wont spoil it because I want you too to be stunned into silence, but it will both make you sad and yet infuriate you also.

For those who storm out, well we know you dont like facts. The fact is Spike Lee has made perhaps the best movie of the year.

Cult Of Personalty!


It's just exhausting folks. To explain these three dumb women fawning over a fat orange sexual abuser can only be explained by defining brainwashing. The cult is here. The cult consists of 35% of the country who are apparently so out of it they will accept anything that lies, cheats, and steals as long as they are told they are victims. Yes, you are all victims of a society unwilling to accept your racial superiority, your obvious entitlement, your non acceptance of change, your rejection of technology, and your disgust with all that doesnt look like you.

The Trump message is exhausting. Lie after lie after lie. Nothing comes of it because it has become normal. Just as I feared it would. From the moment Jimmy Fallon mussed up that Candidates hair to the false equivalency of Hillary's emails and Russian collusion, to the media going out of its way to appear "fair", to Obama's unwillingness to attack this traitor when he knew what was going on, to the give him a chance crowd I now loathe, this has become normal. This President, who needs the hand job he gets from a group of adoring cult members, has to be removed. It has to be done. Every day its not just one scandal, its 3 or 4. People are so overwhelmed by it it does get to be too much. Yet, when the Grifter in Chief gets a little down, he calls a rally and they show up. The morons, the racists, the mentally ill, the assholes, the anarchists, the truly dumb.

But now the Q people are showing up as the ones who have gotten to the yeah he's a nut stage drop off. Pretty soon the Q people will get the attention of this sick cult leader and he will aim to please. The Q people, a truly sick and demented bunch of conspiracy minded nitwits, are not necessarily growing in number, but they are getting bolder. Much like the white people who think now that a Racist in Chief is in charge, they have the right to call other people the N bomb, harass people with hijabs, tell anyone not white to go back where they came from, call the cops on anyone they dont like being in their space, beat up the gays, and just be plain assholes like him, the Q bunch is out there. With their stupid Q signs and their 5 XL t shirts they are now permeating the Traitor in Chief's "rallies". The truly disturbing thing about these fascist Bund rallies has gone from wow those people are fucking dumb hillbillies to wow, those Q people are fucking dangerous.

Oh man, it truly is exhausting to watch my country turn into a shithole run by con artists and supported by 35% of a population willing to go down with the ship as long as its a white ship.

Please vote in November. It's truly the last chance to save the nation from the likes of those three idiots in the picture above.

Frampton Came Alive!


Back in 1976 at the height of his popularity I saw a young blonde maned Peter Frampton entertain a sold out crowd of youngsters like myself. Last night I saw a bald gray maned Peter Frampton entertain a sold out crowd of olds like me. What was the difference? Not much. Peter Frampton is one of the best guitarists of all time, in my opinion. To see him perform again after 40 years was a pleasure. The enthusiasm of 1976 when it truly looked like he couldnt believe what was happening is still there. But now, the enthusiasm comes with experience and failures, Self deprecating humor and interesting name droppings do not seem at all anything but a guy sitting around telling stories. He should write a book.

But the music. Oh man, even though we missed two songs due to nightmare traffic control that had no idea how to squeeze perhaps 2000 cars into a huge park, the music was just phenomenal. The instrumental cover of Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun, a song I dont even care for, had me begging for more. The guitar duel during a jam of I'll Give You Money, just mind blowing. The hits, Show Me The Way and Baby I Love Your Way, just as fresh as when I saw him in '76. The Humble Pie song, Four Day Creep, introduced with a simple, "how about some Humble Pie", unreal, despite the guy hollering for 30 Days In The Hole. And the closer. The song I never ever tire of, the live version of Do You Feel Like I Do. God I love that song. Frampton teased the crowd by getting so far into it and not talking thru the tube he actually shrugged and said "What?" and then launched into the talking tube part that fascinated us back in the 70s. And then he left. For now.

Steve Miller is the ultimate pro. He knows who he is, he knows what you want to hear, and he plays it. His string of hits from the 70's and 80's is as impressive a run as anyone has had. He plays them all. Opening with The Stake, truly a song you go oh yeah Ive heard that, Miller just plays and plays his blues oriented sound until you are pretty much exhausted and cannot believe how many hits that guy had.

The sudden switch from his lousiest hit, Abracadabra, to his best song, Livin in the USA, made my head spin a bit. He then brought back Frampton to jam on a couple of old blues tunes that made my night. Two legends going back to the beginning and trading licks and paying tribute to the blues artists that started all of this.

Then it was back to the hits, Hit after hit after hit. It was fun.

By the way, Miller has been around so long he also tells a lot of stories. And his stories are long. And ya know what, they hold your interest. Maybe he too should write a book.

Sorry To Bother You!


I like filmmakers who take risks. Man does Boots Riley take risks in his film directing debut, Sorry To Bother You.This is a director who has hit the big leagues swinging away, stealing bases, and throwing knuckleballs. Unfortunately, he's getting caught stealing as many times as he succeeds, he's a .250 hitter, and his knuckleballs are getting jacked.

The movie stars LaKeith Stanfield as Cassius Green (ok we get it, greed is bad), a young man trying to make it in Oakland. He gets hired as a telemarketer for a shady firm selling who knows what. When old pro Danny Glover (yes he does say he's too old for this shit) advises Cash to use "your white voice, not Will Smith white... talk like all your bills are paid" in order to succeed, Cash finds his success. Did I mention the goal of these telemarketers is to get upstairs to become a "power caller" with their own elevator and riches they can only dream of?

Yes, Cash does get upstairs because why wouldnt he so he wrestle with the moral dilemma of accepting ill gotten riches and selling out or standing up to evil. Evil is WorryFree, a gigantic do all corporation run by Steve Lift (Armie Hammer) a coke snorting gun toting asshole who literally enslaves people to work for him. Cash is chosen as WorryFree's Martin Luther King to go undercover and keep tabs on the new type of workforce developed by scientists, Dr. Moreaus if you will.

And yep, this is where this movie jumps the rails, goes off into the canyon and bursts into flames killing everybody onboard. The last 30 minutes of this weird ass movie are just so utterly offputting. You may love it, think its brilliant, but I beg to differ because I'm old and have seen all this greed is bad, science is dangerous, corporations are soulless, and racism is bad stuff many many times.

Hey its not this movie is bad. I actually enjoyed much of it, especially a scene where Cassius is told to rap for the young white people, but it rang in my head Ive seen this before in the underrated CB4. Terry Crews is great in his two scenes (more Terry please), Tessa Thompson is superb as artsy fartsy Detroit. But this is LaKeith Stanfields movie. His hunched over rather quiet Cassius is a freakin star. He's got it. His character is just a dude. His clashes with his friends, Detroit, and the union organizers are classic Im just a guy moments. For the first time in his life, he's important and though his importance may be fueled by evil exploitation and what turns out to be immoral madness, he cant give up that feeling. Until he has to.

Sorry To Bother You is a symptom of movies like this. They appeal to young people who have never seen this type of satire before. But us ancients have seen the Dr Strangeloves and the Networks and Idiocracy and the science fiction movies of the 50's and even the Twilight Zones. This one really doesnt have anything new for us. So if you're young, enjoy. Then go back and watch the ones that inspired this.

Now get off my lawn.

Save Us Bob Mueller!



Later on that very day, Russians, not China or 400 lb guys in their basement, began to hack the Democratic Headquarters. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury I rest my case!

Its all coming together and if America can understand, or even care, that their President is a fucking traitor, we will have eradicated this scum off the top of the pond.

I grew up in a time that Russia, the Soviets to be exact, were the enemy. I never really hated the Russians as I believed they were incompetent, underfunded and that the people would eventually say enough. Then it happened. The wall came down. The Soviet Union broke up and all these countries formed I still have no idea who or where they are. I was happy for the people. But then, as new found freedom can become, the Russians became mobsters. Brutal monsters willing to do anything to make capitalism their god. And I will never forget what I said to Max's Mom in the early 90's. I guess I dont like the fuckin Russians.

Nowadays, its the conservatives, the people who used to call me naive' and out of touch, who just love the fuckin Russians. And why? Because their cult leader is a puppet of Russian thugs and blackmailers.

Bob Mueller is getting close. Getting close to bringing down this felonious regime. Getting close to indicting untold numbers of American Quislings willing to do anything to win elections and profit personally. Getting close to bringing down a gang of white supremacists bent on suppressing minorities and women and gays. Getting close to sending a lot of traitors to jail. It cant come soon enough.

There's no fake news about any of this. The Russians hacked the DNC, it gave information to Wikileaks, it gave information to who knows how many Republican congressional candidates (hey there Matt Gaetz and Darrell Issa).They were in contact with Roger Stone, and they had access to Hillary's analytics which would allow the Trump campaign Russians to use the information to target Hillary's demos. They gizzed up the fight between Bernie Bros and Hillary voters which for some reason still goes on today. They ratfucked this election so bad that I have a bad feeling that eventually this is going to come down to hackers changing vote totals. They have the software. They purged minority voters from the rolls. Why is not feasible that they changed vote totals? There arent enough rubes to have actually voted for this vile disgusting man. I refuse to buy that.

Bob Mueller may end up being an American hero. A Republican interested in preserving the halls of democracy rather than just fucking winning. A Vietnam vet against a bone spurred cowardly billionaire. Is there any reason to take the cowards side?

Of course there is. Winning to many people means keeping the other guy down. Winning means preserving the dying so called culture of whatever culture you think is yours. Jesus and Nascar? Country music and bar fights? I dont get it. "Real" Americans arent winning though they think they are. Pissing me off may be entertaining as hell, har har look at the pissed off libtards, but it only means you have taken the side of the fucking KGB.

In the words of the great Nebraska humorist. Lawrence the Streaming TV Guy, what the hell is this, Russia?

Sadly, yes it is. For now.

Trump's European Tour!


Go Britain! If you cant get to the World Cup Final at least you can do what Americans are too lazy to do. Express your outrage at an orange bigot who is flying around Europe dropping his bullshit then changing his mind 180 as soon as he comes face to face with his subject of insult.

The Child Kidnapper In Chief has soiled the British Isles with his white supremacy toxin. Changing culture, you better watch it, hammering the women he cannot believe stand up to him, calling out CNN as "Fake News" and cracking on MSNBC's Kristen Welker (hmmm what is about her he doesnt like?) on international television.

But the Brits are having none of it. By the tens of thousands, they are in the streets of London, with signs and chants and a genuine disgust for this orange twat (Thanks anonymous British sign make). Get that balloon up and dont let that Orange Fascist breathe. Thank goodness the Queen, even at age 217 or whatever she is, has said yeah I'll drink tea with you but then get the fuck out you slimy wanker.

Trump is a fucking coward as we all know. He will run his loud mouth for a newspaper or a TV show saying the most idiotic things one can imagine, get the well deserved heat, and then deny he said any of it once face to face to his insultee. Out Loud. Starts off with his fake news bullshit, catering to his mentally challenged base back here, and then after attempting to minimize his damage, runs his mouth more by standing next to British PM Theresa May and stating he thinks Trump haired blabberer Boris Johnson would be a great PM. May needs to return the favor next time she is here, if she's ever dumb enough to come here, to say yes I think Jeff Flake would make a great President.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is doing damage control with NATO allies basically saying do not listen to that moron. He lies, he lies more and then he lies on top of lies. The Stooge in Chief is quite honestly , a Putin puppet. Pay no attention to him. What the Pentagon knows in comparison to Trumpers is astounding. Anyone, other than those low IQ Republicans on that House Committee yesterday that got owned by Peter Strzok, knows the truth about the Toxic Waste in Chief. That he is going down and to the Pentagon (Deep State to you idiots) he is already gone. Dont listen to a word that comes out of his tiny filthy mouth.

Hail Britannia! And for an Irishman like me to say that is truly astounding. But today we are all in Trafalgar Square, British, and pissed.
