"Technical" Trading - The stupid you'll always have with you.

First a note here. It's been a busy week, and I apologize for this one making it only a 5-post week. It' not like stupidity has ceased and desisted or anything. There are loads of thoughts coming, and posts ready to get into pixel form (the hardest part for me). Next week will bring a couple on the Spanish Civil War (I know! However it relates to the Lyin' Press and Communists of today), something on the "price point" as related to minor-league baseball, and immigration stupidity from the "foodies". to name just a few.
That is all stupidity for another day. Here today is a graph from ZeroHedge.com:

Y-axis not starting at zero*? It's a bogus graph from the get go!



Yeah, apparently there's a Death Cross coming and you may want to get the hell out of Dodge now, people! So says ZeroHedge. Now, wait a minute - Peak Stupidity would be the last naysayer to most forms of financial doom and gloom. Hell, that's what wakes us up in the morning, seeing as the crash coming is what will lead us through Peak Stupidity. Also, though bad-mouthing the ZeroHedge website (one of only 4 on our blogroll) multiple times for its out-of-control ads/scripts that make it unusable on lots of browser/operating system combinations, I personally learned very much about the big financial picture from that site over multiple years. The thoughts from all the reading/mulling-it-over are documented in posts with the Global Financial Stupidity Topic Key, and there are more to come.

The stuff I'm writing about this afternoon, however, is some of what Zerohedge puts up, along with 10's of thousands of pure investment sites and newsletters all over the web. As I wrote about in the post The Nonscience of Economics, even ZH commenters themselves (mostly the earlier-on ones) would concentrate too much on the investment-advice aspect of the talk about the big financial picture. A ZH post yesterday, Gold Joins The Global "Death Cross" Procession is an example of the kind of junk that is not the kind of stuff that helps us understand Global Financial Stupidity, so I'm badmouthing ZeroHedge AGAIN today, but it's really a rant about the term in the title.

"Technical Trading" is a total load of bullshit, and, believe me, that WAS putting it in a nice way. There is absolutely NOTHING TECHNICAL about technical trading. A better name for it would be "playing with graphs". Ever since the first stock numbers came ticking off on a paper tape, there have been people making graphs of it. That's fine, but there have been others trying to make predictions based on the shapes of graphs of stock values and any other kind of economic indices. That's the stupidity that has "always been with us."

It be one thing if, as in at least something resembling science or engineering, these "analysts" were connecting some theory with what they saw in the graphs. "This curve trends down when a company's sales reach this percentage of ... blah, blah...." ... probably lots of baloney, but one could do some math to relate theory and observation. No, these technical traders and advisers just look at shapes of graphs - they've got "head and shoulders" curves that mean this, "support" at various round numbers that mean something else, and in the ZH article, as an example, a DEATH CROSS that is the 50-day moving average crossing below the 200-day moving average. Yeah? What do you know about anything behind which way each of these commodities, markets and currencies will go from that?

The markets run on a small bit of sound capitalism and a much larger amount of psychology. Oh, and that's when the Feral Gov't is NOT involved! Well, it IS involved, making it even worse. One can try to think like the big guys and small guys together to understand what mindset will be involved in movement of certain stocks. Even that doesn't work well when the big guys have the whole system rigged. It doesn't even have to be technically illegal. Warren Buffett can give out advice that will make the market move the way that makes him money via whatever moves he made just before opening his mouth in the $200/year newsletter.

So yeah, lets just look at the 1st and 2nd derivatives of one curve vs another and smoothed by various amounts, with regression analysis and stuff. Heck, we can hire an engineer or mathematician, but with ZERO theory and no Big-Gov/Big-Biz connections, the only way NOT to lose your ass is to make money off of the newsletters and keep out of the market yourself!

As with even the non-technical analysis, which I believe means there MIGHT be some logic to it, there's still the question that always arises: If your theory is that accurate, why the hell are you telling the rest of us? You can make a ton of money buying, shorting, or whatever you people do. If lots of us really get wind of your idea and take it to heart, wouldn't the subsequent movements of that index screw up your prediction anyway?

Yeah, ZH writer, you can take your DEATH CROSS and shove it up your ass with a clove of garlic! I'm not buying this crap and I don't read financial sites for investment advice. You people keep saying it's rigged anyway. I'm not one of the riggers, and I'm not one of the playas. I'd just like to know how Peak Stupidity will all go down.


* Yeah, don't get me started on bad graphing technique. ZH is big on that too. More on that in a subsequent post.

Hey man, nice shot!

If you're gonna look pretty, talk about guns while you do it!



"This one guy had an icky gun! But then this other guy used his icky gun to stop the first guy with the icky gun. Ewwww! (but I'm in love...)"


The Lyin' Press does all they can too keep their narrative together, and "guns are bad, mmmkaay", is part of that. Therefore, the fact that this story of a successful shooting got shown on the Seattle Fox-13 TV station is something in an of itself amazing to me. Peak Stupidity got to this story from this ZeroHedge post which, turn, got it from a decent site called The Daily Bell (a sound-money financial news site that continually tries to get you to sign up for something or other) which points to the Seattle TV post, with video.

That's the great thing about the new world of media. Peak Stupidity can get some real stories from web sites we can (usually) trust, which do lots of the sorting of the real truth from the narrative for us.

Though pro-gun-rights in every way, the Peak Stupidity blog does not have a topic key specifically on this, but related posts can be found with the "Liberty/Libertarianism" topic key, and this article is an example, as it discusses that gun self-defense incidents happen more often than anyone knows about.

Tumwater Police spokeswoman Laura Wohl said it all happened about 4:40 p.m. Sunday when officers were alerted to a possible carjacking near a gas station.

Wohl said Day approached a family and attempted to take their car but was not successful. He then fled the scene, drove the wrong way on Highway 101 and quickly exited into the City of Tumwater.

Day crashed the vehicle at the intersection of Tyee Drive and Israel Road SW, near Tumwater High School, police said.

He then left his car and attempted to carjack at least two other people, fired shots at the vehicles, and demanded owners abandon their cars. Day was successful in carjacking a third vehicle that he drove to Walmart, police said.
Yeah, he went into WalMart to get more ammo!
Tumwater Police said Day tried to carjack two cars in the Walmart parking lot at 5900 Littlerock Rd SW.

One driver was shot when he refused to give up his car, Wohl said. He was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center. As of Monday, the man was in critical condition and in intensive care.

As Day tried to take a second car a "bystander here in the parking lot shot the suspect," Wohl said.

According to a police release, two armed shoppers saw Day inside Walmart and followed him outside.

Before attempting the carjackings, Tumwater Police said Day went into the Walmart and fired at a locked ammunition display case. He then removed some ammunition and left the store.
(No, news sites don't have writers that understand paragraphs and all that fancy stuff. They are there to GET ON TV, dammit.).

It sounds like the armed citizen, Mr. "47 year-old man from Oakville" stopped an ongoing pretty-widespread crime spree. He is right on the edge there of being a hero, per my discussion about First Responders. Don't get me wrong here, please:

He did the right thing.
He most likely saved a number of lives.
We need lots more guys like this man.
Nice shooting!
It took some guts (probably due to fear of the law more than the nutcase).

I just don't use the term "hero" lightly, as I don't know the details as to whether this guy was getting shot at or aimed at when he took aim and killed the criminal. It's great for the people of Seattle and Western Washington to get to see a successful use of a gun in self-defense, rather than getting nothing but the "ewwww, guns!" narrative. We at Peak Stupidity already know what's what.

Again, "Hey Man, Nice Shot!"

Tucker Carlson rocks on immigrant's vs. OUR children

Here is Peak Stupidity's favorite TV pundit. It's from seeing him on youtube. I've meant to put him up more, as he's been on the Peak Stupidity blog lots more in the past (see here, here, here, here, and here.)

In this case, it's not an interview with somebody whose stupidity is so high that the whole thing is hilarious. There's no interviewee on this one, and Mr. Tucker is talking about the brewhaha about the separation of illegally entered children. He compares this to the American children of anyone put into prison for something just as illegal as breaking into a country.

It's amazing that they let this guy on TV:
"The hysteria over separating illegal immigrant children from their families tells you everything about our ruling class. They care far more about foreigners than about their own people. They are only interested in changing the country."

One year after our last post - Housing Bubble 2.0 going Bubblicious


Posted On: Wednesday - June 20th 2018 9:34AM MST
In Topics: 
  Global Financial Stupidity  Economics

As I copied some housing price graphs off of the website Seattle Bubble a few days back, I realize now that it's been just under a year since our graph-filled post entitled Housing Bubble 2.0 - West coast, university towns, minorities, to be hardest hit!. It's good timing, though the Seattle Bubble site itself puts out this data in the nice "tableau"-software graphical format based on Case-Shiller housing data monthly. It's pretty much the only reason to visit that site, unless you live in Seattle, are a realtor, or are thinking of buying housing out there. From the year-ago post:
SeattleBubble was interesting early on, but the posts were geared toward people living in Seattle, or King County, or surrounding counties of course. Besides discussing the ridiculousness of the prices (till 2007), the state of housing in the area during the big decline (2008 - 2013), and then the reasons for the new sharp rise again (2014-Present), the site is geared toward people into real estate as a business. Most of the commenters, in fact, would only be interesting to readers in Real Estate, one of the unproductive large areas of the American economy, as part of the FIRE sectors (see 5th paragraph and down). In addition, a majority of the commenters are fairly leftwing and clueless, which shows when any kind of politics come into discussion - that'd be expected, I guess. Nowaday, I look forward only to reading the monthly post with graphs from Case-Shiller data on housing prices for 20 metropolitan areas of the US. Granted, this data can be read elsewhere - from the 2 guys Case and Shiller, if nothing else. The Tim has some really well-presented graphs in his posts each month, that haven't changed format (which I like) and use software called Tableau that enables user control of the graph on-line - oh, that doesn't work on slightly older browsers, like a lot of stuff!
I will now also excerpt another chunk of that year-ago post, only because I don't want readers to misinterpret these graphs:
1) All of the cities' housing prices are given as the median value, as opposed to the average, or mean. This really makes sense with this kind of data. Most buyers are buying ONE house out of thousands, and a few very high-dollar mansions being sold can skew an average. The median, for the statistically-declined, means the value at which 1/2 of the other numbers would be higher than it and 1/2 lower.

2) All of the city's median housing prices have been normalized to a value of 100 at the beginning of 2000, at a time when these guys considered housing bubble 1.0 to have started. This means that, though the median LA price and the median Charlotte, NC price were way different at that time, they both show 100 on the graph. The idea is to enable people to compare not actual prices between cities, but relative rises and falls based on that "initial" value, before any bubbling.

3) This last point is not particular to Case/Shiller data, but the housing market in general, for most parts of the country, gets better (more sales and higher prices) in Spring and Summer than in Fall/Winter. It may be a matter of more people getting out and around or something about jobs/schooling and moving. Who cares, but the yearly waves in most of the graphs are not noise, but real. It's the long-term trends that are more important.
I have 7 graphs here, each for a different region of the US. The Case-Shiller data are only presented for 20 cities, so some regions of course don't have big samples.

The West Coast:


As discussed herein, there is lots of foreign money coming into these locations and put into housing as an investment and foothold. Most of it is Chinese money. This does not look like it's been abating one little bit. Look at Seattle! Peak Stupidity also discussed the parking of this Chinese money all over the (especially) English-speaking world in Selling out the country - Aussie and Canook style.

The (rich-part) East Coast:


New York always has the Big-Money money (the initial "F" in F.I.R.E. economy), and Washingon, FS (oh, Federal Shithole for you PS newbies) has all of OUR money that we apparently have to spare. Boston has lots of old-timey money too, and is a pillar, or to stick with the metaphor, a big gas source of the University bubble. Keep in mind caveat #2 above in interpretation of the data. This real estate may be the MOST expensive - the graphs show the rise/fall/rise in relative terms for each city.

Florida:


Florida and cities of the "Sand States" below, were big players in the purposeful use of housing as a speculative investment vehicle (that's a money-man term, "vehicle", I mean WTF?) back in HB 1.0. I knew people involved in this in Florida and in Arizona. I don't feel sorry for either of them in their losing of their asses.

The Desert Southwest:


Like I said above.

The Midwest/Great Lakes:



The South:


It's just steady as she goes. There's never been a whole lot of big money in the Southern cities. The manufacturing that came down 50 years ago has mostly high-tailed it to China. The newcomers consist of lots of black from up north who don't bring much money with them. The Californians (most of them bringing their cntrl-left socialist ways with them) don't usually make it to the South, as the serious humidity and bugs are not a welcome change from the West. They've mostly infested the Pacific NW and Texas so far. It's a good thing, really, as it still doesn't take as much money to live down South as it does in much of the nation. The University towns, as in all of the country, are a different story, but Atlanta, Georgia, and Charlotte, N. Carolina are not particularly university towns.

Cleveland/Detroit:


Cleveland never did as badly as Detroit at the bottom, probably due to slightly better demographics. However, even the Continental (now part of United) Airline hub is no more. That can be a big loss, as there are billions of dollars flowing at a major airline hub. Anyway, these are the epitome of the Dem/Black/Union destroyed rust belt cities. Both of these place have "good deals" on housing due to not very good reasons to live there anymore. What were you expecting, Paris on the Erie?

How is this one going to end? Are people really making that much more money in order to afford a lifestyle that includes payments for these "homes" or are they again counting on them as savings accounts that are earning 10% annually (beats hell of of the FED-induced < 1% CD rates)?

Let's compare these increases to inflation. The index had a value of 100 for all of the cities as defined by Case-Shiller for the year 2000. That year was considered to be a time before any serious bubble in housing prices. If we believe the 1.5 - 2% annual inflation rates as told to us by the Feral Gov't (we don't) than anything over 140 or so in 2018 has risen higher than general inflation. My comparisons of prices of food, insurance, vehicles, etc. give me a gut feeling of more like 4 - 5%. Any numbers below 220 or so, then, are not really very high. That means only the West coast is really getting out of whack. The Midwest, Florida, and the desert seem not unreasonable, and the South cheap still. Detroit and Cleveland? We don't want to go there. No, that wasn't an expression - I mean, literally, WE DON'T WANT TO GO THERE!

It's the way that lots of these curves are rising, though, that still make lots of this housing-as-an-investment business still a bubble.

Dances with wolves? ... sounds like that wasn't the half of it!

Yes, it gets lonely out there on the prairie. WE GET THAT!



A commenter has pointed me to an article from the British Lyin' Press tabloid Daily Mail with the long title "Canadian company offering $250 DNA heredity tests is accused of scamming customers after a man submitted a sample from his DOG and was told it was a descendant of Native Americans", making it pretty much too good to pass up. Now, the commenter under an iSteve post on unz was more interested in the HBD, (meaning Human Bio - Diversity) aspect, involving reliability of DNA testing. We at Peak Stupidity, are more interested in the humorous aspects of this silly-in-all-respects story.

It seems that "it's good to be Injun" these days, and the folks paying for DNA testing from one Viaguard Accu-Metrics were doing so to try to prove ancestry from the Indians, ooops, Native Canadians, ooops, Spirits Communities. There were many people suckered in by the testing company, but in a way it serves them right, as the ability to scam the rest of the remaining Canadians, through the heavy hand of government was their purpose in becoming officially, fuck it, INDIANS. Now, the one guy on the picture, he doesn't look Indian to me. I'm no Donald Trump (check out youtube on that one - look for "Trump", "Indian casino", "hearings"), nor a Banker, Lawyer, nor Indian Chief, but c'mon, that's a ball cap with not a feather in sight.

OK, I jest, and, not that I feel bad about that, but I will give the Indians credit, like lots of Americans do. They just got a bad deal over the last 200 - 300 years. Of all the "disadvantaged" groups we seem to have complaining, these guys just weren't gonna come out well with the clash of civilizations between people who believe in property/rights, and savages. Yeah, I can use that word, and it's not the complete insult that people take it for. They lived off the land, didn't make improvements to life in general (with good use though of the white man's improvements - guns and horses - when they got 'em), and lived without a host of rules and regulations that can define civilization.

Hey, it's not all bad, and that's why the idea of the "noble savage" gets people wistful about the Red Man's ways. They wouldn't stay wistful for long if left in that lifestyle for long with no way back - "Naked and Afraid", baby. Sure, the simple life, and simple social rules much more in tune with Mother Nature can feel great, but just wait until a week or two with hunger pains and no food in sight, or a blizzard with crude shelter and heat. It'd make most human beings long to improve the world a bit, I can tell you that. We're way off the subject here, but I'll end this rant about Indians by just saying that their current woes are mostly US Feral Gov. induced, just as they were on the other end 150 years back. The broken treaties and lies by Fed-Gov screwed them over then, and now to pay the Indians back, the other Americans are getting screwed - just think of the fishing rights, in which Indians can put nets across whole streams, while the white man gets fined for keeping a fish 1" too short. It's more of that Anarcho-Tyranny that governments are so, so good at. The Indians, with the easy casino money and different rules, suffer from a serious lack of self-respect and work-incentive, and these new woes aren't much better than the old woes.

Whew, what happened to the post, here? Oh, yeah, well, the DNA testing must have been pretty bogus, but do we know that for sure? They say that all mammals (just as an example) have lots more genes in common than ones that differ. After living on the land with all the creatures of the wild, maybe these Canadians trying to find their roots are getting data that they'd just rather not know. Maybe we all don't need to know that.

I can see the Tribal hearing now (or "tribunal" if you will, I guess that's where the word comes from(?)):

"Mr. With-wolves, you say that your Mama was a squaw from the Dakota territory. Yet, the DNA says otherwise. is there something you are not telling us?"

Defendant sits cross-legged in silence.

"Remember, Mr. With-wolves, you are UNDER OATH, to the Great Spirit of Winter!"

From the live album Ded Dead Reckoning, here is Jerry singing about the Dire Wolf:



In the timbers to fennario, the wolves are running round,
The winter was so hard and cold, froze ten feet neath the ground.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

I sat down to my supper, twas a bottle of red whisky,
I said my prayers and went to bed, that's the last they saw of me.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

When I awoke, the dire wolf, six hundred pounds of sin,
Was grinning at my window, all I said was come on in.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

The wolf came in, I got my cards, we sat down for a game.
I cut my deck to the queen of spades, but the cards were all the same.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.

In the backwash of fennario, the black and bloody mire,
The dire wolf collects his dues, while the boys sing round the fire.
Don't murder me, I beg of you, don't murder me. Please, don't murder me.
No, no, no don't murder me. I beg of you,
Don't murder me. Please, don't murder me."

It's just a simple test on prepositions, "that's all".

Oh, wait, they did leave out one answer that we feel should go in the blank:
While human rights activists all over the world call for humanity [sic, missimg comma] some e[sic - capital "E"]uropean countries still have negative attitude [sic - missing "s" for plurality] ___________ refugees from Africa.
"due to their wanting to keep their own countries in working order, against the Globalist scum just as much as their pawns, the". Hmmmmm, maybe the app has a bug in it, as the Peak Stupidity answer is not one of the options.

Ohhh, it's a feature you say? The Globalist agenda to replace the populations of white western lands has seeped into the apps now? No, not the apps! What would we do without the apps? Without them, life would cease to have meaning. I wouldn't be able to get the car started without my car app, so I'd have to walk to the grocery store, but without knowing the way and how many steps I'm taking, I can't get there from here. It's getting to where I need my iphone charged up to make sure that the TTT-AD* app will work, or I really can't be myself.

This stuff should really piss you off, even if you don't pay for any of this shit, like yours truly doesn't. Just look at that question again. It's not designed to teach someone prepositions at all, it it? Since the level of English it's designed for is 2nd grade or so, I'm guessing the clever Globalist scum behind this stuff want to catch the little ones or the new "Americans" right off the boat or straight out of Chinatown.

I've been off the normal Government Media, aka TV, for quite a while, but it's still not easy to get away from THE AGENDA.

This is why people home-school their children!** Even then, you've got to get together with the other Moms and Dads to make sure you can find, let's call it "non-judgemental" software. It's lots of work keeping you and yours from the brainwashing.

Regarding the Commies - no concept of history and the Cold War


Posted On: Saturday - June 16th 2018 9:54AM MST

  Commies  History  Socialism/Communism

Another Commie Retard destroys another nation:



This time it was Venezuala taking the hit.


This post was quickly inadvertently inspired by a one-line comment in reply to my thoughts somewhere in unz.com comments. The article in question is not really important to these thoughts, as it seems to me that there are is a new breed of proto-Commies on-line now (hopefully they just stay in the basement). These are people have absolutely no sense of history and therefore not only hate America in every way, but have a nice soft spot in their hearts for Communism and the Commies of old. This is NOT to say that Peak Stupidity has any love for the US Feral Government of "the current era", but we do know the past, and we do still like Americans. Unz.com, a very open forum for ideas, has lots of these people writing articles - you can write back in argument, but you must remember that Communism is one of the more extreme forms of stupidity, and logic often makes no headway.

I guess this stupidity comes out due to the fact that the Cold War ended 30 years ago. That means anyway into politics, writing on blogs, etc. must be over 40 to have even rough memories of what the Cold War was about. It helps if they don't do much reading of history or talking to their elders (the hated "boomers"). Yeah, Vietnam was probably a big mistake, Korea possibly so, and the proxy wars in Central America and central Asia likely so too. However, let me put it this way: If America, meaning American soldiers, sailors, airman, and engineers/technicians had just folded and decided to let the Commies take the parts of the world they wanted, we'd all be in a world of hurt economically and what's left of our freedoms would be long ago forgotten. Worse yet, there'd probably be no getting out of it, with the whole world under one big totalitarian system (yes, indeed, "they" are working pretty hard on this now, but it's no done deal!)

Many of the details were not carried out well in the strategic defense of the 1st World against the Communists, and worse yet, the whole Deep State apparatus became much larger and more powerful in the 40-year Cold War era.

Simple observations of history can tell us, though, that there is no easy way back from Communism. The Peak Stupidity blog's features on recovery from Communism in Russia and China, the two largest samples in Communist experimentation ever seen, hint that maybe there is no real "coming back" from that shit. Communism can have an effect on a country like sexual molestation during childhood, in which the country, like the child, will never be the same again.

The commenter that inspired this post then, otherwise a pretty sensible guy, simply argued that sanctions against North Korea (and Venezuela as an alternate example) are the reasons these places stayed in poverty over the years! Ha, no sense of history, and no sense of understanding of the failings of "to each according to his needs, from each according to her ability" as an economic way of life, exist under this mindset. Sanctions! OK, well, yeah, you may have called it that, when for 40-odd years America didn't trade much besides grain with the USSR or about anything with Red China. We were enemies, dude! I suppose, yes, one could say, that America placed economic sanctions on Nazi Germany throughout the early 1940's. We would not sell Sherman tanks to them, nor crude oil, nor ball bearings. Scandalous, and that's probably why Hitler was mad at us too.

Why WOULD we trade with Venezuela, the former crown-jewel of South America, after the Commie Chavez took over the place? Why WOULD we trade with North Korea after the armistice following 3 years of bloody war with ~ 50,000 American men killed and the place remained a poor, sick, Commie outpost for 65 years counting?

This is a failure to understand cause and effect. It's just one level of stupidity, and I'm not just tired of hearing about it, but I'm afraid this stuff is part of what leads to Commies Crawling out of the Woodwork every century or so.

Nothing but distractions

Pay no attention to the plans that aren't on TV!



This is not an excuse for the lack of posting over the last couple of days here at the Peak Stupidity blog. I used the word "distractions" to apply to TV and all of the Lyin' Press infotainment that is sent out to us continuously in order to distract us from thinking of the small and large chunks of stupidity that are symptoms of the real problems.

In this case, it wasn't that I could not avoid the TV, as posted about previously, here, here, here, and here. This time I was hanging with some friends who were at the time watching TV Pundit Tucker Carlson on the Fox News branch of the Lyin' Press. We have almost solely seen this man on youtube and have been very entertained by his skill in seeing through and pointing out the stupidity of his (mostly) whacked-out cntrl-left guests. Tucker Carlson is Peak Stupidity's # 1 youtube pundit, in fact. The time, though, it was a whole hour show or so that was on, and the talk by Mr. Carlson was about the on-going back-and-forth accusations, subpeonas, and trash talk about the alleged Russian influence in getting Donald Trump elected president.

First off, HOLY COW, I really didn't know for sure that this stuff was still going on! It's been 16 months or so, right? It's only still going on because of the interest of viewers/readers on BOTH SIDES of this episode of stupidity. Now, Peak Stupidity comes down squarely on the side of President Trump, knowing and noting full well that, compared to the influence of Israel (on foreign policy) and Mexico (on domestic policy), any possible Russian influence, even all that is alleged, is KID STUFF. Keep that in mind. However, the details of which lawyers and congressrodents want to fuck which other lawyers and congressrodents in the ass, metaphorically, for the most part, is just something I cannot keep any interest in. I know what the deal is. I can see this big distraction for what it is.

President Trump, being unfortunately a major egotist, has probably exacerbated the whole issue by paying attention to it as much as he has. Sure, he has to defend himself, but,

a) Delegate, delegate, delegate! - that's what a leader does.

b) Were he to get more done for his true-conservative base, and use his bully-tweet-account to get Americans helping him in this regard, as described herein, nobody would care about this fakenews Russian matter.

Mr. Trump is distracted, which is part of the goal of Deep State, cntrl-left, Globalists and Neocons working against him, but the viewers and readers of the Lyin' Press are distracted too, which is much more of a problem. Who has time to learn about all the different flavors of stupidity we are being subjected to daily, after working all those brain cells just to keep up with the lawyers and other shysters that Mr. Carlson was discussing on the idiot box? I sure don't. It's the people that keep these Lyin' Press networks in business that keep the distractions going. We have noted before, over a year ago, that it is probably that all these Lyin' Press organizations may keep going even without monetary support from possible viewers, as Big-Fed-Gov may prop them up, like a plethora of Pravdas. Even if they do, though, the distractions won't matter if we keep away from them.

OK, Tucker, I'll see you on youtube ... for a few minutes of entertainment now and then ... that's all.

Peak Stupidity attempts to outsnark Mr. Steve Sailer


Posted On: Tuesday - June 12th 2018 6:31AM MST

  Humor  Feminism  Female Stupidity

Seeing as Mr. Sailer's humorous verbal thrashing of a nutty, hateful, feminist broad named Suzanna Danuta Walters in the Bezos-indoctrination-broadsheet (dba Washington Post) has been up for over one day, meaning it's past its prime in internet time, the Peak Stupidity blog will attempt here to match, nay, exceed the snarkiness of Steve Sailer. Yes, it's doable ... not easy, but doable.

Keep in mind that there's no way in hell I'm gonna click on a Washington Post link, so all excerpts are the same as those in Mr. Sailer's blog post. Maybe it's the whole article, but I think not.
By Suzanna Danuta Walters

June 8
"Suzanna Dana fo fana, Rosanna-Dana bo bana ... Walters". OK, that was too easy, and I'll call that a brain fart out the gate by the opposition - let's write it off and start out even again.
It’s not that Eric Schneiderman (the now-former New York attorney general accused of abuse by multiple women) pushed me over the edge. My edge has been crossed for a long time, before President Trump, before Harvey Weinstein, before “mansplaining” and “incels.” Before live-streaming sexual assaults and red pill men’s groups and rape camps as a tool of war and the deadening banality of male prerogative.

Seen in this indisputably true context, it seems logical to hate men.
Yeah, the edge of something ... Except for the live-streaming, and your imaginary rape camps (the ones in your wet, well moist, OK, slightly-less-crunchy, dreams) the rest has been around since Genesis. So ... I'm not sure what we've supposed to do about that ...

Yes, if a woman who started* an ENTIRE gender studies program (I assume that includes the architecture, iron work, contracting, drywalling, and plumbing/electrical for the buildings) says something is indisputable, I reckon there's no disputing that, cause ... like ... context and shit.
I can’t lie, I’ve always had a soft spot for the radical feminist smackdown, for naming the problem in no uncertain terms. I’ve rankled at the “but we don’t hate men” protestations of generations of would-be feminists and found the “men are not the problem, this system is” obfuscation too precious by half. …
Maybe you can't lie, but that doesn't mean you can't be completely full of it, either. On the other hand, you are right that men are the problem. Men have shirked their duties in keeping the stupidity out of society by letting women vote for the last 100 years.. that was a big problem. It needs to stop. I hate that ... but, that's only logical.
So, in this moment, here in the land of legislatively legitimated toxic masculinity, is it really so illogical to hate men? … I love Michelle Obama as much as the next woman, but when they have gone low for all of human history, maybe it’s time for us to go all Thelma and Louise and Foxy Brown on their collective butts.
The world has little place for feminist anger.
I don't think you should keep bringing up what is logical and illogical, Mizz Walters, as women are the definition of illogical. Could you imagine a female Dr. Spock? (OK, we're gonna have to go to "the tube", I'll make it a separate post.) OK, got the lesbianism thing, as Mrs. Øb☭ma does seem like the proverbial lesbian trapped inside a man's body. Not all women are down for that stuff though ... just sayin'. We don't want all women to "go all Thelma and Louise" on us, due mainly to needing them for love and sex. You do know that both Thelma and Louise** ended up with fatal "severe trauma to the head, torso, and extremities, as best as we can determine from the charred remains" due to "driving while menstruating" per their gyno-coroner, at the bottom of some canyon. (It's so refreshing to watch the prequel, I believe it was Helmer and Louis in which the two men completed a successful Jim Rockford sliding-huey, and just drove on back to Las Vegas to get hookers and, quote, "f__k it out".** There was not much drama during the rest of the movie ...)
So men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from,...
We're mostly not just NOT "with you", but we'd really only be able to understand how to BE "with you" via a twitter conversation with you from the extra-security floor of the state hospital. I don't care which women hate me or not, unless I'm in the middle of asking one out for a date. You want woe, you ain't seen woe, lady ... wait:
... start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only. Don’t run for office. Don’t be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. We got this. And please know that your crocodile tears won’t be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy. It is long past time to play hard for Team Feminism. And win.
"Lean out ... " Ummm... whaa? "Pledge to vote for feminist women ..." Well, I would, but see there's this neighbor, and it's so much easier just to read her yard signs. "Don't run for office." Check! "Don't be in charge of anything.". That sounds like a plan. I guess the house, yard, vehicles, and finances can take care of themselves. It's worth a try. I already quit raking, cold turkey, so I'm on it, baby! "Step away from the power." Hey, you don't have to tell me twice, lady, I've taken on 120 V A/C too many times to count on the one hand (of course my pinky's a bit shorter now) - man, it always feels like it's 220, don't it?

You got this? I don't know which will happen first - a whole country of women with crocodile tears due to lack of attention, or the 95% death toll due to the early-onset SHTF. I would prep harder, but I don't want to, like, "be in charge" and stuff.

*Walters founded the first in the nation Ph.D. program in gender studies at Indiana University, where she was a professor of gender studies and held positions in sociology and communication and culture. Previously, Walters was professor of sociology and director of women’s studies at Georgetown University.

Woah! "Senior Scholar" in "Narrative Research". "London"! We gotta keep pushing that NARRATIVE before every man has gotten red-pilled.

Free Tommy - start of Glorious Revolution 2.0? We have hope!

Pretty soon they're gonna think it's a movement.



It's very heartening, what's going on in London right now. I've heard that the "Free Tommy" (Robinson) movement has spread even to British embassies all over, but I wrote "heard", as it's not like any Lyin' Press of any kind would want to report on this major, major story. Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of yesteryear? Hell, you don't even need those guys - 10's of thousands of people are out in the streets over there! It's the little man against the Orwellian Police State, and the fact that this is not all over CNN (not that I'd see it) should be a clue of which side the Lyin' Press stands on this. Just like the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell's 1984, the Western world's Lyin' Press is PART of the Police State.

Per the links in one of our previous posts on Tommy Robinson, what's going on in London right now is a big validation of the idea of power in numbers. I've written it before, and I'll write it again - "They can't arrest a thousand of us." Again, the reader may find plenty of good videos on his own, but don't ever count on Google-owned youtube to let free speech stand for long either, people. Were these events happening before the internet, who knows how much tighter the Police State apparatus would already be.

It is glorious, not too strong of a word here IMO, to see these guys go right up to the cops in numbers large enough to avoid quick beatdowns and subsequent retreats. Hey, no, it's not like those cops look like goons in the way you see in American riots or even peaceful freakin demonstrations about saving historic statues. They look like decent British citizens, really, but that's part of the problem. How can they go home at night knowing that they're defending the system that is genociding the English people. Why not just go home during the daytime?

Think about this - the "power in numbers" principle applies everywhere. If a big share of those "Bobbies" were to turn around, go home, and write emails to the chief, saying "I'm not gonna be part of this sick business anymore." can they all be fired? Yeah? What happens when they start their own protests, with the backing of 10's of thousands of the Free Tommy movement, to get their jobs back? It could get really ugly for the British establishment ... another Glorious Revolution, perhaps.

Anyway, that's why it heartens me greatly to see a little violence and winning going on by the people, and, believe you me, I don't normally get off on saying "the people". This glorious rehash-and-reversal of the 1960's brings to mind the excellent 18 minute full version of The Alice's Restaurant Massacree written and sung by the folk singer Arlo Guthrie (son of Woody). The tune is not really the point of this song, a genuine exception to Peak Stupidity dogma on pop music.

Don't let the rant about getting arrested for littering get you to tune out. Arlo gets to the point at the end.
"... and the only reason I'm singing you this song now is cause you may know somebody in a similar situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if you're in a situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that's walk into the shrink wherever you are, just walk in say "Shrink, You can get anything you want, at Alice's restaurant.". And walk out. You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement."

Now, in 4-part harmony, without the circles and arrows, here is Alice's Restaurant, with a lot we can relearn here. From another passage somewhere, "there is nothing new under the sun."

Handy pocket-sized PC from PS Legal Eagle

Peak Stupidity has been questioned on the use of proper adjectives to describe people from all over the world. We just got done explaining the total legitimacy of the term "Oriental", but now the Peak Stupidity legal department has sent out a memo, which we've been kind enough to pass on to our readers and the rest of the world.

Apparently, it’s all gotta be strict geography now – that way we don’t offend anybody. You’d think I’d like that, as I have a thing for geography. I just don’t take to stupidity very well (see the link above).

So,

************************************************************
“Indian” is out – “Subcontinental” is in (like there aren’t lots of pieces of continents around, say the Yucatan and Iberian peninsulas).

“Oriental” is out – “Northeastern Asian”, “Southeastern Asian”, “West-by-Northwestern” Asian, “38th Parallel Asian”, and “Arctic Circular Asian” are in.

“Beaner”, “Greaser”, “Chicano” and “Latino” are out – “Mexican”, “Central American”, and “Yucatan Peninsularian” are in.

“Negro” and variations thereof, along with “dude from some shithole” , are out – “[cardinal direction] African” is in.

“Towel Head”, “Rag Head”, basically “[any type of woven fabric] – head” are out – “MENA”, MENAing Middle East North African, is in.

“Big Samoan Fat Fuck” is out – “SPIFF”, meaning “Southwestern Pacific Island Fat Fuck” is in.
************************************************************

OK, everyone, print this out and get it laminated onto a little wallet-sized card.

No, no, no renumeration necessary … that’s what we're here for.

Freedom of association - Race Hustlers vs. Peanut Scientists


Posted On: Saturday - June 9th 2018 12:26PM MST
In Topics: 
  History  Economics  Liberty/Libertarianism  Race/Genetics  Socialism/Communism

" ... roasted peanuts, boiled peanuts, smooth peanut butter, crunchy peanut butter, peanut dip, sautéed peanuts ...."



In our once-in-a-decade (we hope) criticism of the pundit Ann Coulter a couple of days back Peak Stupidity warned of a follow-up post on the lack of initiative of black society in America. I refer to Miss Coulter's rightful advocacy of freedom of association, last seen defended at a high political level in America by Mr. Barry Goldwater. He was the Republican candidate for president against the scumbag Lyndon Johnson, and what a contrast between views that was (another damn post coming!). Mr. Goldwater was against the "civil rights" (meaning "only black civil rights") legislation of that era on completely constitutional grounds, that of the right of association. Whether Barry Goldwater was bigoted or not (I doubt it), he rightly insisted that one had the right to be bigoted.

That brings me to the point of following up on the thoughts about Miss Coulter's article. Whites and blacks lived fairly separate lives back then, and whether that was a good or bad thing is not the issue. The civil rights laws were made to destroy any right of people and their businesses to discriminate among whomever they want to. Is discrimination always based on bigotry or hate for the other? No, sometimes there are damn good reasons - see public schooling as exhibit A. Even if the disrespect and prevention of commerce with other races/ethnicities is unwarranted and bigoted, people have every right to be this way. The way to fight it is to build your own businesses and institutions and get revenge via "living well", rather than bring the heavy hand of Feral Gov't down on everyone.

The welfare programs were the 2nd of this 1-2 punch. Just when you get your self-respect and get economically to a point resembling middle class, the Feral Government pulls you back down. Blacks are much bigger, PROPORTIONALLY* users of welfare, and this Socialism does nothing but kill the initiative of a population. Black have been, since "Great Society", the proportionally biggest welfare recipients due to the fact that they have on average been the people with the fewest assets and lowest incomes. What has 50 years of other-people's-stuff done to change this?

I use the term welfare to include a lot of things given at the expense of the taxpayers, not just what's directly called welfare. The benefits collected from the taxpayers to be doled out to single mothers (the case for about 70% of black "families"), along with local-government extortion of money from whatever alleged fathers there are, is something I include.

This building of their own institutions by blacks is what civil rights, and during the same decade the "Great Society" welfare programs put the kibosh on. Things could have gone a different way. There are immigrant groups who came to America over the years who also were shunned or at least ignored at certain times and certain places. The Italians, Irish, Jews, and later on Vietnamese, etc. often were different from regular Americans (of the time) and were treated as such. Their attitude had them opening restaurants with their own ethnic food, supporting each other in business (not always a good thing, re, the Italian mob), and pulling themselves up economically. Could the black community have done the same without the interference of Fed-Gov? OK, there's no way many of them would have had families of 5 doctors like some Vietnamese people I know. There are inherent roadblocks to this sort of success just due to genetics. However, let's go back about 100 years then and explain WTF the peanuts up top have to do with this!

Long ago I read children's books, and one for 10-12 y/o's was a short biography of an American black man from ~ 100. years back named George Washington Carver. He was as much of a scientist as a black man could become in those days, and his science was the use of peanuts, peanutology, if you will. Peanut farming does seem to be a humble occupation, and that goes through the era of one President Jimmy Carter even. Mr. Carver developed ideas for the use of peanuts, and pretty much went nuts (pun accidental) with it, prompting the caption above from a different black guy, movie-Forest Gump's army buddy who knew 100's of ways to cook shrimp. (BTW, I don't keep track of actors, but was the chubby black guy the same as the Crying Game guy? Is there just one chubby, sensitive black guy that Hollywood has on-call 24/7?)

Back to George Washington Carver and other black leaders of a century back, my point is that these men (such as a man named Du Bois) wanted to lift up the black race in America. OK, that's the same as leaders now, but the methods differ drastically. 100 years ago, these men wanted black people to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and make their own way economically in America. The last half-century's purported black "leaders", the Jacksons, Sharptons and the like, are nothing but hustlers and want to screw "the man" out of more free stuff. (That's not to say most decent black people really see them as leaders, but others, including the Lyin' Press, do.). These new methods are, as we say, "unsound" or unsustainable.

From the last post again, let's say it is 1962 and you can't drink from this here water fountain - you've got to use that one over there. First thing is, learn to maintain your own water fountain! Why would you make it into an issue unless your water fountain is a piece of crap, because your people don't take care of it. I'm not just writing about water fountains here, people - it's a metaphor. If you were a black guy running a great restaurant or doing honest car mechanic work, even 60 years ago in the Deep South, you were gonna get customers. If there are people too bigoted to even go in, it's their losses. Got a problem with Jews and don't want to live or work around them, but ended up in NY City with a hankering for a good sandwich? I'm pretty sure you're not headed for Subway - maybe THE subway, to catch the Red #2 northbound to your favorite delicatessen, but not "Subway" the chain. Business is business, and you can't find the good stuff at Subway.

It'd be really great if the grievance mongers and whiners of all shades and stripes would spend some time thinking of ways to physically improve the world themselves, or at least getting some honest work to get ahead economically. Look up George Washington Carver sometime. Almost everyone likes peanut butter (perhaps because it reminds us of our time as children):

Mmmm, creamy ... don't like it? ...
beats the hell out of Vegemite, I'll guarantee-damn-tee ya'!






*I wrote "PROPORTIONALLY" in caps because I am tired of the BS line "no, whites get more welfare money than blacks!". Not, on a per capita basis, they don't. I don't want to see comments with this error... though I do like to see comments!

... into history.
No, no, none of this!



We're all over this 3-day old news here at Peak Stupidity, but for most of the stories on increasing stupidity in the world, the stories are too stupid to warrant any timely action on the reader's part, and the stupidity is just getting harder to keep up with. We're trying with utmost alacrity. The latest piece is that the beautiful girls, one from each state, in their bikinis, as seen at the top (no, don't tell me you clicked on this post for the text - I've used that one before) are going to be a thing of the past.

I would have liked to start the post with a more close-up picture - somehow that seems to bring on the hits to the site - but almost all of these pictures don't fit our usual long-side-horizontal rectangle that's best for a header pic. That'd figure right? I mean these are long tall beauties, and so you can't get a sideways oriented close-up .. unless the girl is lying down, I suppose ... uh, no, they never ever had THAT on the Miss America TV show.

Now, we're supposed to be excited about a Miss America who is the most talented, intelligent, personable, anything but well-rounded .. you know, those round parts that we won't be able to see. I'm really not sure who these producers expect to watch the show from this point on. Heck, even the Mr. Universe and what-have-you contests have men showing off their bodies, so can this even be a anti-sexist thing? Are they that determined in their efforts to ruin everything, that they don't mind the ratings crashing down to those 1800 viewers who like to see trained birds?*

The stupid, it burns!


Well, I guess there's always youtube. We don't need to see this year's swimsuits, so we can watch yesteryear's bathing beauties. Sure, the ending is known, but does anyone really care who wins?

Oh except Cosmo Kramer - Swimsuit, eveningwear, talent, poise!

Alt-working-title: "Ann Coulter screws the pooch."

OK, that's it! We're broken up again.



For only the 2nd or 3rd time of so in most of a decade, Peak Stupidity blog #1 pundit Ann Coulter has written something that we think is bullshit. It's a shame really, as I may have come up with figure of 95% previously, but I think it's more like 98% of her writing that I've agreed with, as praised here, here, here, here, and here, with a good video of her here.

To mitigate the bad feelings here (maybe we just won't talk to each other for a week or so) even about her latest column 90% of IT is libertarian/conservative goodness. The remaining 10%, to be described in a minute, though, is egregiously wrong, and tends to validate my opinion of women never standing up hard for basic natural principles. Yeah, plenty of men don't too, but as described in regard to #2 pundit, Michelle Malkin, it always seems so come to "this Dept. of Education head is ruining our kids" vs. "There should be NO Dept. of Education". We've got to get back to root causes, call it "roots freedom", and stand for something. Miss Coulter has come across as a welcome exception to this tendency to miss the big picture, but this latest column is an exception from an exception.

Here's some great writing on the "freedom of association" principle that our founders and other forefathers took as a given, yet completely obliterated by the civil rights acts of the 1960's. Ann:
Midway through the last century, bedrock legal principles about property rights and freedom of association were abrogated to deal with a specific, intractable problem: We could not get Democrats to stop discriminating against blacks.
So Republicans, with very little Democratic help, passed a slew of laws saying: No, even though you own that restaurant, you cannot discriminate against black customers. And no, even though we are a free people, you cannot refuse to associate with black people in your clubs, universities or sports teams.
Now, leaving out the "yeah for our team" stuff that I thought Miss Coulter was past (they're just 2 squads of The Party, at this point). Here's comes the stupidity:
This should have been a one-time exception to the law for one specific group of people based on an emergency.
Wrong! Wrong! and Wrong! again. YOU! DO! NOT! MAKE! EXCEPTIONS! FOR! BASIC! CONSTITUTIONAL! PRINCIPLES! .... PERIOD! How are you going to argue back, Ann Coulter, when the principle of the right to bear arms is "excepted" for a year or so in order to get the guns off "the streets" the shelve of white men who may want to stop the slide of their country into Orwellian Stupidity and Totalitarianism? It's being seen already today in formerly-great formerly Britain. If there are exceptions, then there is no basic principle.

Let me get down to the details of this a bit, but a later post will expand on it. it'd been 100 years already 50 years ago during that civil rights protest era since blacks had been enslaved. Here's some news, almost ALL people have ancestors who's people have been enslaved somewhere sometime. 100 years back (now it's > 150) IS NOT RECENT. Get the hell over it, black people. "No, it wasn't just that, but Jim Crow, Jim Crow!" crowed the civil rights crowd. Hey, it may or may not have been a good way to deal with the racial non-assimilation in the South, but it wasn't the worst damn thing in the world either. Can't drink from that water fountain? Drink from the other one. Can't sit in the front of the bus because you're black? Hell, people now often can't sit ANYWHERE on the bus because they're white. The whining needed to stop in 1965, but didn't, and it needs to stop even harder now. If white people won't let you shop in their stores, you start your own stores, etc (and that's the begining of the post to follow on this).

You make special exceptions to the US Constitution at great peril, and that's the peril Miss Coulter complains about in the rest of her article. The civil rights laws are not being used to apply to gays, Moslems ...
Instead of basing favored treatment under the law on a history of brutal and widespread injustice in America, liberals thought it should also be based on other forms of suffering, such as: being a woman, being a Muslim, wanting an abortion, having been born in Mexico, being a smelly homeless person stinking up the public library and—according to Ruth Bader Ginsburg this week—being a gay couple who wants to force a Christian to bake a cake for your wedding.
Yeah, I'm all broken up about these people's rights (h/t Dirty Harry). What'd you expect, Ann, when people, including YOU - #1 Pundit, have this mistaken impression of what "civil rights" really means to begin with. Going backwards a paragraph in the column here:
These days, you could be forgiven for not realizing that civil rights ever had anything to do with black people. According to Equal Opportunity Employment Commission statistics, for a least a decade, 65 percent of all "civil rights" claims have had absolutely nothing to do with race discrimination.
Bullshit, the cntrl-left of the 1960's DECIDED that "civil rights" only applied to black people, and the term has been defined as such. I don't care what they say it means - the term means natural rights as enshrined in the US Constitution, and they should apply to anyone. "CIVIL RIGHTS should protect an open-carrying white citizen hanging out at a coffee shop from police harrasment, just as well as a black person at a protest.

I hope to see little more of this nonsense from the great and fairly influencial liberty-loving/conservative pundit Ann Coulter. I guess isolated small pockets of stupidity are hard to eradicate.

The nation would be in much better shape right now if this wishy-washy thinking hadn't been allowed to become the new law-of-the-land. Maybe this was said best by Mr. Johnny Cougar from his melon camp somewhere in the vicinity of Seymour, Indiana:



This song was not even close to the best song from the John Cougar Mellencamp album Scarecrow, made back in 1985, but it fit with the post, is all.

Peak Stupidity Sanctuary Yard policy to be rescinded


Posted On: Wednesday - June 6th 2018 6:38PM MST

  Humor  Environmental Stupidity

A mosquito doing the job that other insects just won't do:



No more sanctuary for you guys - fun's over!

We tried to live and let live since these invasive nuisances appeared in many areas of the property once border control DDT spraying was eliminated years back. There's lot I've read that argues DDT is NOT the planet killer it was made out to be back in the 1960's. I don't think I am knowledgeable enough to agree or not, though I'll have to do more reading on this.

For a long time Peak Stupidity has been lenient with these undocumented insects. We have compassion that owners of other yards do not seem to have, as they've been spraying them with substances, subjecting them to unexpected electrical shocks, and even using candles to try and burn them (I guess(?) ... doesn't work anyway.) We have held our yard out as a sanctuary for these wayward insects, so they would no longer have to live in the shadows. They come out of the shadows in the evenings, in fact, and most seem to be involved in blood transport work of some kind. These are hard-working creatures who only add value and diversity to bug society and have a lot to teach us humans about humility, new cuisine, and itch home-remedies. Apparently, much of the blood the illegal mosquitoes have been working so hard to harvest is sent in remittances to the mosquito children. Please, people, think of the chillens.

Lately, various (OK most) far-right neighboring cities yards have raised their hate-filled voices against our compassionate treatment of these mosquitoes, worried about them "causing a nuisance" on their own property. They have broken up families even.

We have tried to keep our Sanctuary policy, as some of our mosquitoes have been "sent back home", we've been told from the neighbors. However, after the last few days of itching and scratching, even Peak Stupidity says "No Mas!". We will bring in the spray and exterminate these bastards like there's no tomorrow.

Dragon flies, smaller spiders, lightning bugs and their cousins the fireflies are all still quite welcome. Gnats, you're next, bitchez!
