Ugly New Statue Appears South of Market – Like the Goddess of Democracy But Without Arms – “Venus de Rent Control”

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Man, this thing is surprisingly ugly. Here’s prolly the best way to show it, with the perpetually-clogged 8th Street (considered “excess road space” by our corrupt SFMTA, somehow).

A little closer and now it looks out of focus, non? The buildings in front and behind look to be in focus, but not the thing itself.

And here it is. (I swear this is in focus.)

Anyway, just like the real Goddess of Democracy, this thing was made in China, for better or worse.

IDK, man. Who signed off on this? Wouldn’t it have been better to have taxed the Father of Rent Control $5,000,000 and then have put the money in our General Fund?

Here Comes The Judge, the Taurus Judge, a Five-Shot Revolver Banned in CA But Promoted in Frisco – An “Everyday Gun”

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

On newsstands now, ‘neath pop star! and look chic!

(And look, this isn’t a very special weapon for her, it’s just an “EVERYDAY GUN.”)

You’d think the hand model would have a finger or two on the trigger, but no, for some reason.

Now don’t try buying one in California as it’s considered a sawed-off shotgun:

“Though Taurus deliberately designed the Judge to fire shotshells, the Judge does not qualify as a “short-barreled shotgun” under the National Firearms Act of 1934 as its rifled barrel makes it a regular handgun.[2] However, the Judge is considered a short-barreled shotgun under California state law, which has a broader definition of “short-barreled shotgun,” and the Judge is thus illegal to possess in that state.[4]

Anyway, this was quite an arresting image as I passed by the magazine rack…

He almost made it to the end of the block at this point, yet his exhaust still hangs in the air, visible:

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

Inline skating was a thang starting about quarter century ago. It would be like let’s go to the park and rent RollerBlades kind of a thing:

A Pro-Development “Takeover” of Our Local Sierra Club: When Playing the WOMEN CARD Reveals a JOKER, Named Donald

Friday, December 18th, 2015

Well, here’s your news:

“Sierra Club SF election and cyber bullying: this is our story, told in our own words. …”

Oh, OK.

But wait a sec – let’s hear more about this group, from our Paper of Record:

“One of its members, real estate agent Donald Dewsnup, is the engineer of the attempt to take over the executive committee. He joined the Sierra Club in February…”

(It’s A Man’s World, After All)

Now what’s the phrase again, cyber bullying? Let’s Google That! Let’s Google:

DONALD DEWSNAP CYBER BULLYING

Ah, the first hit, from Disney VICE:

Why Are Redditors and a Cyber Bully Trying to Take Over San Francisco’s Sierra Club?

So, who’s the cyber bully now?

Hey, do I care if our Local Sierra Club Chapter goes pro-developer? Nope, not really. Not at all, actually.

But this campaign goes Beyond The Pale, so YELLOW CARDS for all.

Sorry.

And oh, these kinds of process complaints, this amount of whinging before the election has ended, make me think developers will have to try try agin to “take over” our Local Sierra Club Chapter.
