A person bunkerooed in Michigan

Some of you may know that I've been on a fact-finding mission in Detroit for the past couple days. This evening, an LAP bunker blast was detected at a park in a nearby town.

Latest celebrity look-alike news

I've just been informed that a Katy Perry look-alike was sighted at a brewery in Louisville yesterday.

Charlottesville terrorist has local connection

This is another example of the minds full of shit that the Republican Party in northern Kentucky is raising.

The white supremacist who plowed his car into a crowd in Charlottesville, Virginia, yesterday - killing one person and injuring 19 - has been identified as James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio. It turns out that Fields went to high school in Union, Kentucky - before his family moved out of town.

Of course, Fields is a registered Republican and Donald Trump supporter.

Armed men distribute anti-worker propaganda

America is sliding harum-scarum into becoming the command state the Far Right has always dreamed of.

In St. Joseph, Missouri, a group of 4 men armed with guns have been confronting folks outside the Buchanan County Courthouse and shoving anti-worker propaganda brochures in their faces. The leaflets support Missouri's hated "right-to-work" law that infringes on the right of workers to enter into a union security agreement. A referendum may be coming soon to repeal the law. In fact, Missourians voted this law down at least once before.

One of the armed men purported to be a notary.

The right-to-scab thought police doesn't have facts on their side, so they have to resort to marching around the courthouse with guns.

It's no wonder the NAACP recently issued a travel advisory for the Show Me State - the only time the NAACP has ever issued such an advisory for any state.

Right-wing church parks in Park Hills

This is breathtakingly bad news for the people of Park Hills.

The government of this Kenton County suburb is being taken over by what's described as a "traditional Catholic" church. It's not a mainstream Catholic congregation, and this flock doesn't seem satisfied with minding their own business.

My business partner blogged about it this morning with more details...

http://annbugz1.blogspot.com/2017/08/republican-jesus-church-taking-over.html

My jaw hit the floor when I read that entry.

This church preaches against Neopagans, and its congregants have sported antigay bumper stickers. There's already a lot of intolerant churches like that all over America, but this one seems joined at the face with some Park Hills city officials - who apparently don't understand separation of church and state.

Then - of course - congregants had the nerve to complain that they were the ones being persecuted.

It reminds me of a line in a Stevie Wonder song: "You cry, 'Why am I the victim?'...When the culprit's Y-O-U."

Surprise! ('Sesame Street' Wednesday)

Although Snuffy is absent from this innovative classic 'Sesame Street' sketch, this is a Snuffleupagus moment! That's what I call it when I'm proven right about something after everyone insisted for years I was wrong - like when Big Bird finally introduced Snuffy to the rest of the 'Sesame Street' kick-ass crew, who had long denied his existence.

For decades, I've insisted there was a 'Sesame Street' segment in which the main premise was "surprise!" This cry was accompanied by the human cast members having pies smashed in their faces.

People didn't believe me that 'Sesame Street' characters would dare throw pies at each other. But pie they did, and now YouTube has once again saved the day...



According to the YouPube page, that segment dates from 1975, though some argue it was slightly later. The sound effect of the pie splat was the same one regularly used on 'The Electric Company'. We all know people who mimic this sound regarding occurrences that have absolutely nothing to do with pies.

While "surprise!" is the main idea of this segment, imagine my surprise when I finally found it on YouTube!

More Scholaring photos to terrify the Far Right

It was a rough week for the forces of evil, as the Road Ruiner and I went Roads Scholaring in Cincinnati again!

This event yielded bunches of new photos and videos, and you're gonna peep 'em all...

Professor fired for criticizing Bevin for ruining Medicaid

The suppression of dissent in Kentucky's universities continues.

You may know that so-called Gov. Matt Bevin has a proposal to gut Medicaid - especially for those who were newly qualified under the Affordable Care Act. This despite the fact that a state law requires Kentucky to accept all Medicaid that the feds offer. Bevin's proposal might not immediately affect most who would have received Medicaid even without the ACA, but the Forehead's ultimate goal is to eliminate Medicaid altogether.

Now a faculty member at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry has filed a federal lawsuit because he was fired for criticizing Bevin's plan. Dr. Raynor Mullins was let go after officials in the Bevin regime pressured the university into firing him. The suit names university officials Mark Birdwhistell and Stephanos Kyrkanides and a "John Doe" in Bevin's corrupt administration.

There are witnesses to Mullins's claims.

Surprised? Right-wing political retaliation has been ongoing in the Bevin administration - and in Kentucky's education system and business establishment for decades prior. Remember what happened to me at NKU?

Amanda Stamper - some nobody in the Bevin thugocracy - accused the professor of playing politics. Stamper first said that nobody in Bevin's office knows who Mullins is - then she immediately contradicted herself by saying they know Mullins has supported Democratic politicians.

That highlights how Kentucky Republicans not only have a history of political retaliation but also of childish lying.
