Fifty Years Later

Itte’s a good thing those clever right-wingers finally figured out that what he *really* meant by “judge not by the color of their skin…” isn’t that racist white motherfuckers should stop being racist white motherfuckers, but that black people should stop pointing out that racist white motherfuckers keep being racist white motherfuckers.

Visual Migraine

I just had a very minor visual migraine episode. As I sat down to eat lunch, my left visual field got all swirly around the edges. Now about ten minutes later, it’s almost completely gone.

I get these every couple of years, and this one was very minor. The first time it ever happened to me–about ten years ago–it was more severe, and the entire center of my visual field went almost blank.

Republican Filth Getting What They Want: Loony Racist “Militiamen” in Armed Standoffs With Loony Racist Sheriffs, Both Hunting Mexicans

An Arizona Minuteman scouting for drug runners and undocumented immigrants allegedly pointed his rifle at a Maricopa County sheriff’s deputy after he mistook him for a drug smuggler, court paperwork stated.

Richard Malley, 49, and two other militia members were in a section of Interstate 8 commonly used by drug smugglers.

Two sheriff’s deputies were checking mile markers in the same area and as they approached mile marker 140 Saturday night, the deputy flashed his lights and honked his horn. He said that’s a common practice for him while attempting to get drug smugglers to run their vehicles up to his.

Malley appeared from the side of the road armed with an AR-15 rifle, a .45-caliber pistol and a fixed-blade knife, according to the probable cause statement. The two other militia members also emerged from the bushes and identified themselves as Robert Deatherage, 48, and Robert Crooks, 63.

Malley raised his rifle up and pointed it and a flashlight at the deputy, according to court paperwork.

The deputy identified himself as a law enforcement officer while Malley continued to aim the weapon at him and asked for identification, court documents said.

Malley identified himself as a militia minuteman and said he didn’t carry any identification because he feared cartel members would find out he was a Minuteman, court paperwork stated.

The deputy showed Malley the patches on his sleeves, the word “sheriff” across his chest and his badge and told him to lay down his firearms. Malley refused, according to the probable cause statement.

Itte’s a miracle these fuckewittes didn’t blow each other to smithereens.

Awesome Google Android Security

Google Android allows you to use face recognition to unlock your device. Here is a tip they helpfully provide for using this feature:

TIP: After you set up Face Unlock, look under Settings > Personal > Security for two additional settings: Improve face matching and Liveness check. Use these to make Face Unlock more reliable and secure. [emphasis added]

Such a relief to know that someone can’t use my dead face to unlock my Android device after they kill me.
