The Muslim Squad Members are pretty quiet. The Religion of Pieces really don't care for homosexuals.

A gay Iranian man has been reportedly beheaded by his brother and two cousins after they discovered he had been exempted from military service due to his sexuality.

Afterwards, the three killers allegedly called Alireza's mother to tell them they had 'finished him off'.

Just because you are overrun with some type of creature, doesn't mean you have to eat it. Now if Casa Misanthrope had an abundance of steers or feeder pigs. Now we are cooking.

The Cicadas Are Coming. Let’s Eat Them!
Why not embrace Brood X as the free-range, sustainable source of protein that it truly is?

FOR 17 YEARS, the trillions of cicadas known as Brood X have tunneled through dark soil, feeding on sap as they slowly matured. Babies during the George W. Bush years, these long-gestating underground bugs are starting to hatch across the eastern United States, emerging from the earth in astounding numbers. Their time above ground is short: three to six weeks, just long enough to mate and die. As a biological phenomenon, gigantic cicada broods are hard to ignore. They’re like crickets with musical-theater degrees—dramatic, loud, committed to a splashy outfit change. And while some people will delight in their natural spectacle, others will just want to be rid of them. There is, however, another reaction: Grab a fork and knife.

So I wonder if the author, Kate Knibbs, enjoys dining on road kill?

Here's hoping that Obama and his Martha Vineyard pricks enjoy their renewable energy, loud and clear.

Blown Away
The Biden administration just granted final approval for “Vineyard Wind,” a huge offshore wind farm off the coast of Massachusetts.

The wind farm, which would be the first large-scale facility of its type in the United States, will eventually include 84 turbines about 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, according to The New York Times. Once it’s ready, officials expect the farm to produce 800 megawatts of clean energy, making it an important first step toward the Biden Administration’s climate and energy goals.

What's wrong with this picture? The county I live in has more guns per capita than the City of Chicago. Yet our county has yet to have one murder this year. In the mean time the Sunsetting Dodering Paste Eating Resident of the White House says brown and black communities should blame the police.

Biden’s statement read:

This year, we also recognize that in many of our communities, especially Black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several Black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement. These deaths have resulted in a profound fear, trauma, pain, and exhaustion for many Black and brown Americans, and the resulting breakdown in trust between law enforcement and the communities they have sworn to protect and serve ultimately makes officers’ jobs harder and more dangerous as well.

In order to rebuild that trust, our State, local, and Federal Government and law enforcement agencies must protect constitutional rights, ensure accountability for misconduct, and embrace policing that reflects community values and ensures community safety. These approaches benefit those who wear the badge and those who count on their protection.

Let’s be clear: Biden’s statement is a slap in the face to every cop in America.

Jeez Joe, why don't you tell these communities to take responsibility like law enforcement? Oh yeah, you need Balkanized factions to keep the Democratic Party afloat. If you really cared about these communities the first thing you would do is flood those areas with school vouchers and let parents get their kids out of Unionista hell holes public schools.

Enough rant.......
