Supreme Court Jesters Put An End To Women’s Rights 

Cristal M Clark 

Many are talking, protests are happening, this end of abortion rights, is not the end because many speculate that they will not stop at abortion rights. To that, I would quite agree. 

Yesterday Supreme Court Joke, Clarence Thomas had this to say: “Laws on Same-Sex Marriage and Relationships, As Well as Contraception Should Be Next.” Complete idiot. 

Does anyone know, he does realise that he is black right? That is not rhetorical question at all. He does know that groups are aiming to take his rights away simply because he is black, no? Not that I would ever at any time advocate for this but if he thinks we should start undoing things, is he under some highly fantasied impression that the white old men he serves and the those in the south who try to oppress the black vote still to this day are not going to be coming to try to undue rights and protections for blacks? 

I’ve got really bad news for Clarence Thomas, mark my words, that is going to happen and your white friends at the Supreme Court, well they will not have your back at all. 

Lucky for Clarence Thomas, women, the LGBTQ community and many blacks are not supportive of that we do however, outnumber everyone and by sheer numbers, we will not stand down on this issue. 

We have voting power and we will change laws you can be sure of that and this supreme court had better enjoy it’s time taking us back to a dystopian era, your time on centre stage is not going to last long, I assure you. 

According to the supreme court abortion is not a constitutional right. Neither is the supreme court axing laws that protect rights which are basically an addendum to the constitution in case you needed me to spell that out. Another little tidbit, women outnumber men here in the US. The supreme court should think about that. 

Dick’s Sporting Goods, Disney, Netflix just to name but a few companies are supporting women here, they are offering to help pay for travel to states that will allow abortion. This is going to be quite an important lesson for the United States Government, who the fuck do they believe line their pockets, these large corporations who are unsupportive of this move, they donate campaign funds, politicians on both sides should be highly aware of that. You’re about lose quite a lot more than you all bargained for, now aren’t you? 

What is even worse here is that other nations and countries took a hard double take and thought the what the fuck is wrong over in the US, still right? A lot my friends, a lot. We no longer have a working and functioning system, we have chaos, insanity and clowns in office, in the courts, cops who beat, shoot or kill black or brown men, a judicial system that exists only to entrap, jail, and cost people the ability to live, freely. Our laws are not actual laws, they are left to the interpretation of judges and juries, and we have supreme court that is not supreme at all. 

This is not the land of the free, it stopped being that long ago.

FTC Taking Aim at Harley Davidson But is the FTC Wrong?

Cristal M Clark

The FTC is accusing Harley Davidson and the Westinghouse Electric Company for violating the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act by voiding, yes voiding warranties of any customer who used an independent repair shop or who might have done the actual work themselves. 

In part of the FTC’s argument they are accusing Harley Davidson of failing to make customers fully aware of warranty restrictions. 

The FTC “Consumers deserve choices when it comes to repairing their products, and independent dealers deserve a chance to compete. These orders require Harley and Westinghouse to fix their warranties, come clean with consumers, and ensure fair competition with independent providers. Other companies that squelch consumers’ right to repair should take notice.”

Basically, the FTC is saying that both companies restricted customers choices at market, cost consumers money by forcing them to use dealerships instead of shopping around for repairs, undercut independent dealers, and reduced the resiliency of their product.

So the FTC ordered both companies to stop violating the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, recognise a consumer’s right to repair, “come clean with consumers,” and alert dealers to compete fairly. 

But let’s take an honest look at this, this isn’t an independent repair shop fixing an iPhone screen, or new seat on the bike, this is warranty work on a motorised transport, WARRANTY work. 

Which should only be done by an authorised dealer who have people on staff trained to work on that particular manufactured equipment. It’s a specialty which most automakers have. And warranty work should never have been part of the right to repair bill in the first place.   

I agree with Harley Davidson’s take on this issue. What if the mechanic working on the bike while he/she might be a certified motorcycle mechanic, are NOT certified and correctly trained to be working on a Harley. So they screw something up? 

Whilst I do understand the right to repair law however, I do not think it’s entirely fair to the companies who actually manufacture a product and who spend thousands on training and educating people to work on those products especially for warranty issues. And when it comes to warranty issues, unauthorised dealers/repair shops should not be allowed to do the warranty work. Period and end of story. 

Warranty work does not typically cost the consumer as long as the work being done falls under the warranty. So this move by the FTC is absolute fucking bullshit. If you are shopping around for warranty work to be done, that’s a red flag that maybe what’s being fixed is not truly a warranty issue.

Fast Food Employee Busted Serving Up Meth

Cristal M Clark 

Another case in point reminding the world that we have lost the war on drugs. On Monday of this week, over in Skiatook, Oklahoma, Bryan Francis was arrested for adding something a little extra to a fast food order at fast food joint. I would guess that it was at the Tastee Freez they have in town but in looking at one of his charges it’s would more than likely put him at Carl’s Jr. 

I am not talking a free upgrade like a large diet coke instead of a small. No, I am talking about good old fashioned meth. 

Anyway, according to a police report the incident was reported after a customer reported having found a small baggy of what appeared to be a crystal like substance, i.e. drugs in their order. So the customer went to the manager who did replace the order with a meth free order. The customer really seemed to want the police to look into this, so they took pictures of the substance and showed it to police. After the police tested the substance they learnt it was not sugar or salt but meth. 

The police then spoke with employees where they found our friend Bryan Francis who was subsequently arrested for and promptly charged with distribution of meth. But it wasn’t just the meth charge, they enhanced it to also charge Bryan with distribution of a controlled substance within 2,000 feet of a school. 

Ouch! Tough break mate. 

To make matters worse the police seem to be taunting the intended recipient on social media “If you are the person that was [supposed] to receive this order, it is waiting for you at the Skiatook Police Department. Just swing on by!”

Personally I feel that social media taunting by law enforcement of suspected criminals is overplayed, outdated and just tacky. 

The Skiatook police also warned the public to be careful when picking up any fast food and check it for drugs especially before giving it to children which reminds me of when I was a wee child and my candy had to be checked after trick or treating. 

Either way, this does serve as yet another example that the war on drugs is completely lost. Since we have no footing on that war we should look into legalising everything and taxing the shit out of it. The drugs would be cleaner and safer and states would make a killing not to mention jobs would be created. If people want to put that garbage into their bodies, let them just make it safe.

Thief Then Goes to DV Call in Stolen Cop Car

Cristal M Clark 

During the wee hours this morning Jeremiah James Taylor, 33, allegedly broke into the unstaffed Park County Sheriff’s Lake George substation and stole a marked 2013 Dodge Durango. If that wasn’t enough, he heard a radio call and dispatched himself out on call to a domestic violence call. 

I mean, when in Rome right?

Apparently, the domestic violence call came in just before 3:30 a.m. and it was broadcast on the Teller County police channel. So Jeremiah James decided he would resolve the issue. 

The individuals at the home reported that Jeremiah James appeared to be quite intoxicated. They said he asked, “where’s the old man that’s going to shoot someone?”

This is where things go sideways for Jeremiah James, when the actual coppers showed up, he got back into the stolen police car and the police initially let him go due to the fact that they were concerned about a high speed chase and someone innocent getting taken out, like what happened in Denver down on 225 last week. 

Luckily Jeremiah James was spotted about two hours later and when deputies pursued him, they say he took off, hitting speeds of up to 110 mph, and broke several traffic laws during the chase according to the police details. I love how police have to tell you the guy broke multiple traffic laws. No shit, he stole a police cruiser. Again, when in Rome!

Eventually, Jeremiah James crashed on Matakat Road around Mile Marker 4, ran into the woods, when deputies caught up with him, he was armed with a knife and was of course,  noncompliant. Deputies deployed a Taser at Jeremiah James and an officer shot at least one round, Teller County Sheriff’s Office said that no deputies were injured.

The Sheriff’s Office said Jeremiah James suffered self-inflicted knife wounds and was taken to the hospital after he was taken into custody.

In addition to the list of charges he’s facing for this incident, Jeremiah James Taylor was also on probation for menacing, theft and DUI along with being investigated for several other crimes that occurred in the area previous to the Park County Sheriff’s Office burglary. 

The charges in this case are:

  • Aggravated motor vehicle theft
  • Vehicular eluding
  • Impersonating a peace officer
  • Obstruction
  • Resisting arrest
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Second-degree burglary
  • Reckless driving

By the by how the hell did he manage to steal a police cruiser from the Park County Substation, don’t you secure them? Honestly, the guy deserves a little credit here, he stole a police cruiser and still dispatched himself to a domestic violence call.

No Wonder Grocery Bills Seem Higher Than Ever

Cristal M Clark 

I mean if you are looking for something that will give you a little pep, or an added ingredient for Sunday dinner with the fam, why not try picking up a brick of Coke at your local market? 

For some unlucky drug smugglers roughly $38 million worth of cocaine was inadvertently shipped to some local supermarkets in Czech it could be intercepted in Germany. The smugglers tried to hide the cocaine in banana crates with bananas. 

The drugs, had been packaged as blocks of pressed cocaine with a total weight of 1,851 pounds and with a street value of approximately $83 million, had transited via the German port of Hamburg, the largest port in Europe after Rotterdam in the Netherlands, before arriving in the Czech Republic. That is quite the haul. 

The cocaine was discovered by supermarket workers who then informed authorities about this mysterious white powder. Honestly, I almost do wonder how much walked away before anyone alerted the local authorities?

According to officials “Criminal investigators found that goods of the same batch were distributed to several other places in the Czech Republic.Therefore, in cooperation with the [Customs Administration of the Czech Republic] and other entities, it is currently conducting inspections of these places and other actions.”

The Czech police added that they were now looking to work with international authorities to further their investigation. They said: “Information about consignments is kept outside the territory of the Czech Republic, for this reason we will use the institute of international police and judicial cooperation.

“The case was taken over by the National Drug Control Center, which will conduct the investigation. We will provide more information as soon as possible.”

By the way, The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)  says that “Cocaine manufacture reached record levels in 2019 despite growth losing momentum. The output of global cocaine manufacture doubled between 2014 and 2019 to reach an estimated 1,784 tons (expressed at 100 percent purity) in 2019, the highest level ever recorded.”

Now I know governments don’t much like it but everyone, all nations have pretty much lost the “war” on drugs. To be rather honest here, it is highly doubtful that at least here in the US officials have no idea just how well cocaine does on the streets because cocaine is still the drug of choice for those that have means, hence a job, a little money. Affluent individuals still buy the shite out of cocaine here in America. 

We should just legalise it and call it good. Until then, you’ll just have to dig through those bananas at the supermarket looking for it.

Hospitals Sharing Sensitive Patient Intel With Facebook

Cristal M Clark 

In the never ending saga of Facebook attempting to collect your personal intel so that they can sell you out to advertising, it has recently been discovered that Facebook AKA META will stop at nothing to learn everything about it’s users whether you want them to know it or not. 

Surprise, some sort of tracking tool installed on many hospitals websites has been collecting patients sensitive health information which just so happens to include details about their medical conditions, prescriptions, and doctor’s appointments and, those hospitals are sending that intel right on over to Facebook.

I know what you might be thinking but no it’s not a joke or fake news. I mean come on now, Mark Zuckerberg has stated multiple upon multiple times he is attempting to gather as much user intel as possible. So no I am not fucking kidding you here. 

The tracker is called called the Meta Pixel by the way and it sends Facebook a packet of data whenever a person clicked a button to schedule a doctor’s appointment. 

That is completely invasive, unwarranted and a huge trespass upon users. They have no idea that intel like that is being sent to Facebook and anyone caught doing it should be fined or jailed. 

The data is connected to an IP address an identifier which can be linked to a specific individual or household thus creating an intimate receipt of the appointment request for Facebook.

During an investigation it was also discovered that the Meta Pixel installed inside the password-protected patient portals of seven health systems. So it is just happily being installed and patients don’t know about it? That sum it up right?

That is a bloody invasion of ones privacy not to mention a very big HIPAA violation. Oh, did I fail to mention that at the beginning? 

During the little investigation it was discovered that patients were simply not asked if the hospitals could share such sensitive intel to Facebook. 

Fuck me mate that is absolutely disgusting. It clearly illustrates why we need oversight on some of these tech giants. Mark Zuckerberg is running around collecting information he knows full well he has not right to have and just so that he can fuck about and “improve” the lives of users. Fuck off with that. This man should be brought up on every charge one can dream of, stricken of all of his money and jailed. 

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, META are abusing your rights to privacy and in quite few cases your HIPAA rights. 

It’s time to take a serious look at the practices employed by Facebook/Meta and high time that Mark Zuckerberg were no longer allowed to use ignorance as an excuse to break the law.

But They Can Build Some Impressive Vehicles

Cristal M Clark 

I heard this saying a long time ago from someone that I used to work with, “German’s, they can’t build a damn decent road, but they sure can build a car. Well as it just so happens to turn out, that happens to be quite true. 

Meet Panther AKA: KF51, the baddest of bad arse tanks, in the entire world. 

The KF51, also known as the “Panther,” has some very impressive top of the line new technology, which include but certainly are not limited to; a larger main gun, a digital computer backbone, and a full suite of defensive features. The Panther even has the ability to and get this, counter so-called top-attack munitions, like the American-made Javelin missile, that are currently decimating Putin’s army in Ukraine. 

If you are a war buff, the name Panther may be familiar to you because The Panzerkampfwagen V, was the original “Panther,”  and it was designed in 1942 to counter Russian tanks. It was hailed as one of the best tanks of the war, albeit it had plethora of mechanical and reliability issues. 

The Panther is equipped with a number of new features. The tank includes outward-facing digital cameras, giving the crew 360-degree visibility without exposing themselves to enemy fire. A second 7.62-millimeter machine gun can be remotely operated from inside the tank to target drones and ground targets. The KF51 can launch four reconnaissance quadcopters from the turret, allowing the tanks to conduct their own local reconnaissance. A drone launcher is built into the turret, capable of launching four Hero 120 loitering munitions. The Israeli-made Hero 120 has a flight time of 60 minutes and packs a nine-pound warhead. Hero 120 will allow Panther tanks to engage targets beyond their line of sight, such as behind hills and tree lines. 

Panther’s top-attack defense system is the first-known system devoted to tackling top-attack weapons. It’s not clear how the new defense system works, but word on the street indicates that it may involve the quadcopters moving to intercept incoming rockets and missiles. 

Panther is the long overdue upgrade to the original Panther’s successor, Leopard 2 which is the German version of the American M1 Abrams Tank. Panther has the basic hull design of the Leopard 2, the shape of the hull suggests newer, thicker armor along the front and sides. The Panther does keep the Leopard 2’s lines over the engine compartment, with a pronounced bulge. Panther reportedly still has a 1,100 kilowatt/1,500 horsepower engine, which is the same amount of power available to the Leopard 2. The Panther’s turret is bigger with sharper angles and a much larger overhang over the engine compartment, the latter to both store larger, heavier main gun ammunition and to act as a counterweight to the new 130-millimeter main gun.

Yes the new gun apparently has a 50% longer kill range. 

The technology is really what makes Panther a truly remarkable piece of equipment.  

Panther was unveiled  at France’s Eurosatory arms show and it did leave many wondering if the world really has a need for a new tank regardless of how impressive she may be.

Not the Intended use of Apple AirTags

Cristal M Clark 

Well yet again a jilted lover was caught utilizing Apple AirTags to track someone. This go around we have a woman who utilized them to track her cheating lover then promptly ran his lying, cheating arse over thus killing him. 

No, you read that right. 

Gaylyn Morris, 26, Indiana is accused of using Apple AirTags to track her cheating boyfriend, Andre Smith, to a bar and killing him after seeing him with another woman. 

According to court documents, Gaylyn Morris was arrested on Friday after she followed Andre Smith to Tilly’s Pub in Indianapolis by using an Apple AirTag and GPS. 

Gaylyn Morris told a witness that she was Andre Smith’s girlfriend and said that he was cheating on her. Gaylen Morris also delightfully informed witnesses that  she was going to use an empty wine bottle to beat up the other woman.

The attack did not go as planned however because Andre jumped into the middle of a swinging Gaylyn and intercepted the broken wine bottle. The three were booted from the bar when Gaylyn decided to run down her cheating boytoy of a boyfriend. The impact ended up killing him. 

Gaylyn “pulled forward and clipped the victim, and he went down, at which time Gaykeb then backed over him and then pulled forward and hit him for the third time,” according to a witness statement to the police. 

Gaylyn then got out of the car and then tried to go after the other woman, who was still in the pub waiting for a food order. Thankfully police showed up in time. 

This sort of behavior is absolutely ridiculous to me, honestly no man should have that much of a hold on any woman so that you would lose your bloody mind and go on a killing rampage over cheating. Going after the other woman too, that is just poor form. Let the other woman have him, typically both men and women who cheat don’t stop no matter what you do, well unless of course you end up killing them. 

Be careful of Apple AirTags, they are being misused left and right these days and if you do not have an iPhone, you will never know if someone is utilizing them to track you.

New Synthetic Drug Cocktail Being Taken by Partygoers

Cristal M Clark

We know Smart Water, Topo Chico Water, but what about Happy Water? What the hell is that? From what I hear, it’s all the rage these days. Back in the mid 2000’s popping pills strangers gave you at an airport was a thing, now we have happy water. 

So what the fuck is that, exactly?

Well as it turns out, Happy Water is a new Synthetic Drug Cocktail which is a powdered mixture of synthetic substance, including but not limited to, MDMA, methamphetamine, diazepam, and ketamine and dissolved in liquid to produce a psychoactive beverage known as “happy water.”

Ahh that one is a hard pass for me, not into meth at all, I mean back in the day if you needed a muscle relaxer you could walk by a stranger and end up zoned out for hours on your couch in heaven, but meth…no, it’s hard pass. 

Now apparently, Happy Water has yet to hit the US, it’s popularity is primarily in Southeast Asia, like Thailand and Myanmar. Authorities are all up in arms about it. Maybe for good reason, I mean the ingredients do look a lot like the disclaimer of any run of the mill pharmaceutical commercial. 

A week or two ago Myanmar’s Central Committee for Drug Abuse Control (CCDAC) revealed that local authorities had seized 497 grams of packeted “happy water” powder with a street value of 5,680,000 kyat ($3,055). Each packet sold for the equivalent of $43, the CCDAC claimed, and were typically distributed at entertainment venues, bars, and clubs throughout Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city. Oh and it’s also being sold on social media so why it’s not a rage here in the US yet I am quite not sure. 

Those kids clearly like to party if I don’t say so myself. 

At any rate no one is saying what the possible side effects might be or are, but it is for sure that now Happy Water has turned up in Myanmar you just might be finding it at your next party. 

Bottoms Up!
