Happy Tax Day!

Didja know: the IRS costs $150,000 per employee every year.

Here’s some of what you’re paying for:

Adapting to the lifestyles of many San Franciscans, school officials launched a breakfast in the classroom program this year aiming to give students a healthy start to their day.

What “lifestyle” is that? The “lifestyle” that prohibits that most basic of animal responsibilities, feeding your own offspring?

The program has also removed the social drama of the cafeteria from the program by feeding students in their classrooms.

Eating breakfast in the cafeteria can be very socially isolating,”

whaaa?

So to avoid “social drama,” they move the eating into the classroom and give everyone some.

So even if you, as a parent, make sure they washed behind their ears, made their bed, and ate the breakfast [bacon? eggs? oatmeal? pork chops and gravy? ham and red-eye?] you cooked for them, they get moar breakfast in the classroom. No worries, tho — it’s just an apple, a pear/orange, some of that packaged, disgustingly sugary yoghurt-like stuff and some packaged, high-calorie granola… or a processed bagel, processed cream cheese and “organik” processed packaged turkey. I’d like a follow-up check of the trash can to see how many wrinkly, bruised apples are in there.

It’s also difficult for families to get out the door and arrive out [sic] school 30 minutes before the bell rings.”

Is that also ”the lifestyles of many San Franciscans”? The inability to show up 30 minutes early for Free Food?

Even if all the “food” is processed, packaged …. stuff.

Add in the now-traditional skool lunches, wherein parents are not allowed to send their own lunches with their own offspring , and add in the new trend to skool dinners, what have we wrought?

What caught my eye on this story — and now has E-Disappeared down the Memeory Hole — was the feature highlighting the “Golden Ticket”, good for a free movie and some other items, given as a Prize to the 1 millionth recipient of a Free Breakfast in the San Francisco skool district.

The “winner” was a hi-skool age guurl of an urban demographic who looked like she’d never missed a meal in her life. She looked happy and …puzzled.

ALSO: You’re paying for:

The U.S. Air Force is paying Mike Domitrz $2,222 an hour to teach airmen when it’s OK to kiss on a date. …roughly $325,000 per year from military contracts at 50 installations.

…three sessions titled “May I Kiss You?” to airmen… Marines….

The Air Force said, “There are no other known contractors able to provide this caliber of a presentation impacting our target audience in such a positive way,”

WASoF.

also:

According to a Defense Department-approved “sexism course,” the Bible, the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence all contribute to modern sexism.

Hill-Larrity !!1!

Artist's Rendering, as no one has actually seen the van....

This is the image Hill-Larrity !!1! *chose* to promote by naming her campaign van “Scooby”. Arguably better than what others could have named it like, DeathStar, Dray of Deceit, Coach of Contempt, Cankle Wagon, BenghaziBus, …

But, really, What difference at this point does it make?Mobile…

I wondered if there were any clues to Herself’s choice in the theme song for the 1969 cartoon show referenced.

“Scooby Doo, Where Are You?”

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you?
We got some work to do now
Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you?
We need some help from you now
Come on Scooby Doo
I see you, pretend you got a sliver
You’re not fooling me
‘Cause I can see they way you shake and shiver
You know you got a mystery to solve
And Scooby doo is ready for your act, don’t hold back
And Scooby Doo, if you come through
You’re gonna have yourself a Scooby snack
That’s a fact
Scooby Dooby Doo, here are you?
You’re ready and you’re willing
We can count on you Scooby Doo
I know you’ll catch the villain

She’s shaking and shivering?
She’s nowhere to be found when work is around?
She’s seeking a ScoobySnack?
what?

BTW, aside from not being noticed during her 45 minute luncheon in a Chipotle’s, someone also had to point out that she stayed last nite in The “Hipstoricurp Hotel Blackhawk in Davenport, IA, with the down comforters and Frette Italian sheets.

And this is what we’re offered….

Pass the Scotch.

Not …entirely unopposed.

Other than that, Mrs Lincoln…

150 years ago today

In remembrance, Lincoln’s Humor. It was said, “he could make a cat laugh.”

[Lincoln] told of a “man of audacity, quick witted, self-possessed, & equal to all occasions” who was asked to carve a turkey for a large party. “The men and women surrounded the table & the audacious man being chosen to carver whetted his great carving knife with the steel and got down to business & commenced carving the turkey, but he expended too much force & let a fart—a loud fart so that all the people heard it distinctly. As a matter of course it shocked all terribly.

A deep silence reigned. However the audacious man was cool & entirely self possessed; he was curiously & keenly watched by those who knew him well, they suspecting that he would recover in the end and acquit himself with glory. The man with a kind of sublime audacity, pulled off his coat, rolled up his sleeves—put his coat deliberately on a chair—spat on his hands—took his position at the head of the table—picked up the carving knife & whetted it again, never cracking a smile nor moving a muscle of his face. It now became a wonder in the minds of all the men & women how the fellow was to get out of his dilemma; he squared himself and said loudly & distinctly, —‘Now by God I’ll see if I can’t cut up this turkey without farting.’ ”

[“Abraham Lincoln: A Life” by Michael Burlingame. ]

Also, the classic Port & Ceegars Question: how might History have been different if Lincoln had lived?

today’s macroLympian

…Elle Mallon of the Ducks F.I.R.S.T. campaign filed her first grievance against the We Are Oregon campaign “for holding its kickoff event in a building with no gender-inclusive bathrooms.”

Two days later, Mallon accused We Are Oregon campaign manager Taylor Allison of sexual harassment — “because she referred to Mallon as ‘Ms.’ when Mallon identifies with the use of ‘Mx.’”

Despite an email apology from Allison, Mallon filed a second grievance saying Allison chose to misgender her. Mallon explained that her pronouns include not only mx but also xe, xem, and hyr.

The Constitution Court concluded, “Sexual harassment is a very great evil, but the record supports the conclusion that only a single unintentional gender-based microagression [sic] occurred.”…

You know, arrogant, self-entitled little brats who intimidate cowardly administrators.
It was the same way with the trust-fund commiebastard protesters in the late ’60s.

They try to get people to shut up in a free society,
and they either try to kill or piss everybody else off.
How is that ever gonna work?

stuff that’s hard to do (cont’d)

SpaceX CRS-6 Launch this afternoon (Int’l Space Stn. commercial resupply mission)
Skip to 14m10s for strongback retract, 20m00s for launch.
Stay to the end for solar-panel deployment on the Dragon spacecraft.
View full-screen. Enjoy!


~ link to this vid (starts @14m00s) ~

I’ll put up the Stage-1 landing-or-crash video when it becomes available, but it should show up here.
Historical ref

(What? Yeah, I really do miss this stuff. I post SpaceX operations, ’cause they have wayyy more coverage than DoD missions do, and it’s an exciting new beast.)

Stage-1 had a hard landing (i.e. it crashed a little but not as badly as last time).

more of this-week’s squirrel


Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign is all about “everyday Americans,” she made clear in announcing it on Sunday.

On Monday, she showed how unassuming she herself could be[*]. Driving to Iowa for her first campaign swing, Mrs. Clinton’s van — with two aides and Secret Service agents aboard — pulled into a Chipotle restaurant for lunch in Maumee, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo.

And no one recognized her. [story]

Question: Was she more
A) Disappointed,
B) Gratified that she was taken for just another “Everyday American,”
C) Relieved to have maintained her privacy,
D) Glad she wasn’t recognized before she got ‘er food (Rule #2), or
E) Surprised by the taste of her first burrito?

today’s coveted endorsement

…During Monday’s daily White House briefing when asked whether or not Hillary Clinton automatically gets Obama’s support, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, “The answer to that question is no.” …

…”There are other people who are friends of the President, who may at some point decide to get into the race,”…

OUCH!
