Saturday

 (Michael Brown was no gentle giant.)

Yesterday, I didn't enjoy a traditional dinner.  I ate several hunks of apple pie instead.  The Dragon Lady purchased the pastry at Costco.  It cost ten dollars.  I washed the vittles down with a large glass of generic cola.  Unfortunately, poor old Smith has little cash, so I can only afford the off-brands.  Yet I remain thankful.  At least I wasn't born in Liberia.

I downloaded the latest episode of The Strain.  I'm starting to warm to the show.  Death by disease is downright terrifying--especially with the current Ebola scare.  The Strain effectively exploits our primordial fear of sickness.  For instance, would you kiss an uncle infected with AIDS on the forehead?  Or would you prefer to politely keep your distance?  This strong aversion to viruses and bacteria is built into our brains as we mature in the womb.

I paid homage to the Christ God.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees.  No big surprise.  I'm not some filthy pagan.  I asked Jesus to teach my wife some basic manners.  She often hurls terrible insults at her loving husband.  I used to believe that hitting a woman was a horrible crime.  Now I wonder if Ray Rice got a bum rap from the feminist powers-that-be.  Just saying.

(Running back Ray Rice knocked his fiancee out cold in an elevator.)

I went to bed at 10 p.m.  I had a dream about driving through Venice, Louisiana.  I parked in front of a red building.  The door was locked.  I walked across the highway toward a yellow building.  That door was locked, too.  I nearly got hit by a car for my troubles.

I woke up at 6 a.m. and drank several cups of coffee.  Then I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break.  A lot of middle aged Koreans aren't getting sex from their husbands.  In fact, according to the survey, twenty-five percent haven't had coitus in over a month.  Stress seems to be the main culprit for this lack of affection.

I turned on Fox News.  The shooting in Ferguson, Missouri is still dominating the headlines.  But the victim Michael Brown wasn't some innocent gentle giant.  Far from it.  In fact, Big Mike was caught on camera committing robbery and assault a mere three hours before his death.  So I'm not throwing this cop in prison just yet.  If a criminal that size approached me in a threatening manner, I'd shoot him, too.

Anyway, it's time to don our tinfoil hats.  Here's Paul Craig Roberts. He believes the American dollar will soon die.

God bless.

  2. Are you sure it was Michael Brown doing the robbery, Mr. Smith? I saw one account that said that Brown was wearing different clothes to the thug in the video, and he was shot only 15 minutes after the Swisher Sweets were stolen, not enough time to change. I can't find a photo of Brown's body to make my own judgment.

    In any case, stealing a $49 box of shitty see-gars is not a death penalty offence. Running away from the cops, or giving them lip, is not an justification for shooting someone dead. That'w why cops have cars, and Tasers, and radios to call for backup, and legs to chase after stocky black dudes who probably can't run too far for too long because they're walruses. Plus, the initial police stop wasn't because Brown was suspected of being an UNarmed robbery suspect; it was because he was supposedly walking in the middle of the road like an arsehole.

    The whole thing stinks worse than Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton's sad-sack career. it's another incident showing what a Police SState the U.S. has become. There are plenty of drunken, violent yobbos here; lots of ranting, aggressive crazy people, including hate-filled Muslims whose heads are full of religious mania. But the local coppers almost NEVER shoot anyone dead, because they're TRAINED in how NOT to, so they can bring 'em back alive. In the U.S. the government has turned tyrannical. And the tyranny isn't expressed through high taxes or EPA regulations -- it's the naked, brutal power of surveilling and shooting. Against that, the Right and Left should agree.

    1. His own parents confirmed his identity as the guy robbing the store. Not that he should be killed for theft and assault. But I wouldn't jump to conclusions on this case. I'd wait for the facts to come in. Mike was a big kid. And he was no gentle soul. There's more to this one than meets the eye.

      Cheers.

    2. Thanks for the info. I did not know his parents had confirmed that Brown was indeed the punk stealing the cigars. I have not been following the nuts and bolts of the episode because I'm not super-concerned about most of the mayhem in the U.S.

    3. There was more looting last night.

      Cheers.

  3. Looks like a bad hombre, just from a cursory glance at those photos. Remember the real reason the US is going down the tubes is---lack of jobs. Used to be a big strong kid like that could make good money doing honest manual labor. Now because of the "giant sucking sound" of NAFTA and GATT and other offshore scams, it's not easy to get a good job in manufacturing. But yeah the cop should have used the other tools at his disposal before resorting to shooting the kid down like a rabid dog.

    1. I agree. America has changed. The banksters, the femi-nazis, and the gay-stapo have taken over the whole show. I often weep like an Indian looking at trash on the side of a highway. But what's a boy to do?

      Cheers.

  4. I don't know why, but I've always had a strong desire for Korean women. One guy told me he thinks their face is flat as a pancake but I think they are cute in much the same manner as a Shar-Pei dog. Perhaps my role in God's great choreography is to take a trip to Korea to service some of these frustrated housewives. You get a few lined up for me, Smith, then I'll buy the airplane ticket!

  5. Smith, I haven't been to La in 30 years. Some lady told me Buras was gone (she was staying here in Burnet, Tx. as a refugee after Katrina). Excuse my misinformation. Bukko, I wish Smith had a thumbs up feature. I'd thumbs up you big time. best, Jay

  6. smith dollar wont end, it will be relegated to sterling status. not a lot of demand for sterling pound notes, at least in the real eCONomy, but hey it's still alive right?

    smith, youre going to die from gutrot and sugar. set an example for james and start exercising, i recall telling you this back on the FLB blog.

    start exercising man. just start with walking for 30 minutes. maybe youre in great shape and your making this shit up, i dunno, but unless youre smoking weed you shouldnt be eating a whi=ole pie and washing it down with liquid diabetes.

    our pancreases are used to being shocked, what with the drinking and all, but i gotta tell you man, sugar literally fries your pancreas and creates an acidic condition in your body which induces and inflammation response.

    try making a fist after eating sugar and you will notice your hand feel swollen. that;s inflammation as a response to protect against systemic acidity.

    as far as big mike brown is concerned, sometimes when you do the robbery, you win the lottery and other times, you just get a cigar.

    1. I see the dollar getting much much stronger. The DOW's peaked. The only place to go is down.

      Cheers.

  7. Smith! Keep at re keeping us informed. You have a fan club, at least of sorts.

    Naah, you are right NOT to hit your little lady.

    I just joined the ex-Zero Hedge club. It was an UNHEALTHY ADDICTION that recently brought me more aggravation than joy. And, as an ex-drinker, I am getting much better at recognizing unhealthy addictions... I zapped one yesterday when I wrote "Told you guys Putin was a thug", got redded like hell, and THAT was the signal I had been praying for... So, I pushed the Adios Mothafuckers Button ("AMF Button"), and asked Tyler to delete my account.

    I am feeling great today, yesterday was little rough. But, it is true: God is great.

    Peace, brother! If I ever have the pleasure of going back to visit our Korean bearing suppliers, I'll drop you a line to see if we can get together over a $10.00 coffee there in Seoul.

    1. I haven't been to a coffee shop in ages. They run a fortune. I just get the crap from the machine.

  8. Hey Mr. Smith,

    I've been remiss in thanking you for your blog and coming back after your hiatus. Thanks.

    I was thinking about you last week when I was watching Korean soap operas on TV at the hotel in Little Saigon (Orange County) last week; there's also lots of Koreans and Korean businesses too in the area. Damn I miss living in Asia.

    Are you going to try to see the Pope?

    1. Thanks for welcoming me back.

      Korean soap operas are all the rage in Asia. The entire region loves them.

      Cheers.

  9. Looked like he stole items. Also looks like he was unarmed and did not assault the owner (by my standards). Yes, I know, in today's BS grabbing someone's shirt is assault.
    He needed to be apprehended for sure. But, what transpired in the interaction with the officer. Did the officer, as reported, shot him when he was not attacking the officer in any way?

    1. It's just not passing the smell test. A police officer works six years on the force without any disciplinary incidents. Suddenly, he executes a teenager for walking in the middle of the road. I just ain't buying it.

      Cheers.

Thanks for stopping by. Smith.
