The Daily Derp: The Quintessential Edition

Welcome to this week's edition of The Daily Derp.

Aaaaand here we go. It's a long one but derpalicious:

Off the top to get the juices flowing here's a story to make your blood boil and your soul stir.

"Max Corbett-Gardener was only 4 years old when he died from complications related to severe epilepsy. His mother, Jo Corbett-Weeks, scraped and saved for nearly three years to get an almost $5,000 specially-made headstone of a teddy bear holding a star inscribed with a heart touching tribute to her son.

On what would have been Max’s seventh birthday, Jo had the headstone installed as a special present to him.

But just three days later, Jo returned to find the headstone removed from Max’s grave..."

"...It turns out the council acted after a single member of another family with relatives buried in the cemetery.

“We have a conformity of shapes in our lawn cemetery. We were contacted by people who objected to the shape,” a Malvern Town Council spokesman explained to BBC. “The longer it stayed up, the harder the process would have been.

“It was a very difficult decision to remove it but one we had to make straight away,” the spokesman said.

The council is arranging a meeting with Corbett-Weeks to discuss a new design for her son’s headstone."

A place in hell for all those involved - the person who complained and the shitty and gutless council - in this story. Tell Peter T.C. sent you, you indecent hacks.


Oh look, the technocracy pretending to be a democracy is at it again:

"The bloc's executive body is planning a sanction of €250,000 (£200,000; $290,000) per person.
The Commission wants changes made to an asylum system which has buckled amid an influx of migrants.

The plans would require support from most member states as well as MEPs.

EU officials hope that, twinned with a deal with Turkey that has already reduced migrant numbers, tensions over migration within the bloc can be reduced."

I think it's time we stop looking to Europe for pointers on, like, anything.


Speaking of the EU, I'm not crazy about the track they're on. Particularly where Germany is concerned. Not only are they demanding other countries accept more refugees/migrants, their banks are increasingly aggressive demanding payments by bullying small and poorer countries like Greece. When banks start to demand their money war is sometimes not too far off.

As for the insanity of letting in millions into their country, sounds like Germany wants other more sober countries to embark on their 'we're super compassionate' merry-go-round. This too has the stench of German arrogance as it imposes its views on the matter on other nations.

Personally, I think Hungary is more right than Germany.

Add to the mix Britain's upcoming 'Brexit' referendum on June 23 and it could potentially get messy.


Michael Daugherty's story. Remember, the government is NOT YOUR FRIEND.

They'll fuck you up. Parasites tend to do that.

Of course, by my expressing such a view, a bureaucrat is probably at this second coming up with a rule that demands we be its friend.


Oh look tyrants posing as liberals where climate change are doing what they do best: Bullying armed with their lies.



"Last year British Public Health recognized the harm-reducing potential of e-cigarettes, and today the Royal College of Physicians followed suit. I summarize the 500-year-old medical society's conclusions in my latest Forbes column: 

In 1962, two years before U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry released his famous report on the health hazards of smoking, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) covered the same subject in a report that went further than Terry's, linking cigarettes to cardiovascular disease as well as lung cancer and chronic bronchitis. Today the RCP issued another landmark report that should inspire imitation in the United States, endorsing e-cigarettes as a harm-reducing alternative to the combustible, tobacco-containing kind."

This should surprise no sound mind.

Instead, what we get is jack-booted hyper bull shit by banning smoking in cars where children are present here in Quebec. All based on rubbish and 'for the children' crap. Needless to say, I think based on what we've come to learn over decades of progressive policies that presumes to help us, will disproportionately hurt the...poor. But what do assholes like us who are better off and don't smoke care, right? Out of sight, our of mind and someone has to watch over other people's kids, amirite?

Remember when they (the nannies) assured us that they would never ever never enter the private sphere on their over zealous anti-smoking campaign dismissing people who thought as much as 'paranoid'?




Third recall for GM SUVs.

So, will Obama shake down GM like he has other car manufacturers?

I think this is what we call 'a bit of a pickle' for the administration.

Remember, government plays politics!


Not a cult.

Shut the fuck up GQ and stick to what you do best and tell us how to match a tie with a shirt.

Editor: You! Yeah you! Go write a pro-Obama piece. Make sure you're clear about him being the best and having a gigantic cock.


Quebec is in dire and desperate need of outside thinking - that is, ideas that are not generated from Quebec Inc. - to keep it from its sustained sinking into nothingness.

Political correctness is deadly:

"We call it “Political Correctness.” The name originated as something of a joke, literally in a comic strip, and we tend still to think of it as only half-serious. In fact, it’s deadly serious. It is the great disease of our century, the disease that has left tens of millions of people dead in Europe, in Russia, in China, indeed around the world. It is the disease of ideology. PC is not funny. PC is deadly serious.
If we look at it analytically, if we look at it historically, we quickly find out exactly what it is. Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back not to the 1960s and the hippies and the peace movement, but back to World War I. If we compare the basic tenets of Political Correctness with classical Marxism the parallels are very obvious."


To those not endeared with a romantic view of socialism are able to call it for what it is: A ruse; never mind evil. I can't stand  educated Western liberals constantly trying to find "good" in this depraved ideology that runs contrary to human nature.

So it is with Venezuela and its pieces of shits that run it; including the dead guy. Whasshisname? Chavez was it?

Here's a list of things Venezuela is running out of.

I'm sure pampered useful idiots like Greenwald and Raimondo would run to go and live in Venezuela, right?



Philippine psycho leader says kill drug dealers, American conservative rejoice!

"Human rights watchdogs have expressed alarm that his anti-crime drive may lead to widespread rights violations."

Commonly known as thug huggers and killer colliding cowards. He is speaking the only language drug traffickers and their lucrative cash machine fear. If we lined our own drug traffickers up in front of a firing squad drug use would drop precipitously and drugs would become so expensive due to shortages usage would diminish. Unfortunately, some of our illustrious Congressmen and their Big Pharma CEO owners, being the countries most prolific drug traffickers, would also feel the burn of a Rifle Sonata.

The AP comments are absolutely astounding.

Yikes! Who said conservatives can't math progressives on stupidity?

This is another example of why I'm - and you should be too - for free speech under all circumstances.


Indian Chief Elizabeth Warren is right. The system is rigged.

"A former Maryland judge Thursday was sentenced to a year’s probation for ordering a Charles County sheriff’s deputy to administer an electrical shock to a defendant in his courtroom.
Robert C. Nalley, a former Circuit Court judge in Charles County, had pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of violating the civil rights of the defendant, Delvon L. King, as King was about to be tried on a gun charge in 2014."



Justice! Part two.

"The nation's courts continue to ensure that the less you know as a law enforcement officer, the more leeway you'll be granted. USA Today's Brad Heath tweeted out a screenshot from a Medicare fraud case that shows ignorance of the law is no excuse… unless you're in law enforcement."

And they want us to treat cops as professionals?
Tell you what. Have them adhere to a basic principle all professionals follow - essentially to be EXPERTS in their fields - and then I'll take them seriously.


Government making criminals of people is a specialty. 


I can but agree with this. The interesting thing is Obama (and his supporters) will point to the markets as *proof* the economy is doing fine and he can safely take credit for it. The problem is the markets are indeed acting strangely because the underlying fundamentals in the economy just don't support a strong stock market. One has to figure this bizarro scenario has to correct itself. In this way, Obama is fortunate as he can still say, 'what me worry? Why should you?' Had the markets behaved in accordance to what's really happening, I reckon if this would have served damage to progressive policies and Obama's Presidency where the economy is concerned.


Recommendation time! Maker's Mark Kentucky's Straight bourbon.

Really enjoyable.


Left v. Right violence.

Hint: The left are far worse.

Now is a good time to comment on alleged violence by Trump supporters. If one is observing properly once they get past the lies, it's anti-Trump protestors who are provoking, causing trouble and engaging in violent activities at his rallies. What the media reports is Trump supporters reacting to it or defending themselves.

Violence is the piece de resistance for left-wing ideology. It's just as basic to their politics as water is to life.


I mean, it's so painfully obvious I can dedicate myself to it.


Give 'em hell Popbitch.


Parasites are gonna parasite.


Never change Massachusetts you highly intelligent people you:

"..Former drug lab chemist convicted of faking test results and tampering with evidence, leading to a review of tens of thousands of criminal cases, is out of prison.

Annie Doohkan has been paroled, a spokesman for the Massachusetts prisons system confirmed to the Boston Herald (http://bit.ly/1SvNIah ). Nicolas Gordon, the attorney who represented Dookhan during her criminal case, said she was released about a month ago.

Dookhan tampered with evidence while working as a testing chemist at a Boston lab operated by the Department of Public Health. She was sentenced to three to five years in prison in November 2013."

/face palm.

Remember, you can't spell Massachusetts without ass! Sorry Steve from Boston!

Merkel's Germany is absurd.

"Jan Böhmermann could face three years in prison for insulting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the weekly satirical variety show "Neo Magazin Royale." Before reciting his satirical poem on March 31, Böhmermann called it an example of speech that Germany would not permit. He was perhaps more right than he expected."

I stand by Bohmermann.

Fuck Merkel and fuck Erdogan. They can rot in hell for all I care.


And your weekly progressive retardation courtesy of The Week.


Conservative bad ass clowns defend cop who body slammed 12 year-old.

Bitch had it comin.

What miserable assholes they are.


What an utter lack of humanity. It's amazing. Doctors still help criminals when they come to them. Yet, cops think it's justified to let people die because they broke the law. 

And I'm supposed to care or salute such assholes when they die?


From First Things. I am an Ultramonatist.



Climate liars are evil liars.

Particularly Shukla who has a lot to lose with this racket.


Yeah, that's not good.


Everyone knows O.J. did it.

What a tragic circus on the back of two innocent dead people and their families.


ISIS Black Flag waves in Bosnia.


The worst justification you can offer about defending policy is the 'yeah, it may not be perfect but I'm good with it' or 'it's a good start'. If this be the thinking, you may as well cede all personal sovereignty and agency to the government.

The FDA's sugar labeling will do nothing. It won't educate people nor will it lower obesity.

Heck, I actually think obesity will probably recede on its own without much reason just like how death by homicide have been falling for years and years.


Did JP Morgan stock pile the largest physical silver position in history?

I have no idea how to verify this. I know someone who is a lawyer for Goldman Sachs but I wonder if he'd even know.

If this is true, then yes, you should do the same. Ride their coat tails dammit!

Personally, I have been known to purchase the odd 1oz Sunshine Mint or Johnson Matthey silver bars.

I keep it to a percentage of my income while the shipping costs also help to keep purchases at a minimum. $19.95 per shipment can add up and needs to be calculated in your cost to return scenarios.

Silver, Ho!


More examples of progressive short memory.


Crook Hillary emails. There's rape-rape and there's classified-classified.

Yeah. About Powell having a private server. Yeah. There were a few dozens and none had classified information on them; not to mention he wasn't on the take as she was as Secretary of State.

Imagine if she's President what she'd do!


"...Setting a higher minimum wage seems like a natural way to help lift families out of poverty. However, minimum wages target individual workers with low wages, rather than families with low incomes. As a result, a large share of the higher income from minimum wages flows to higher-income families. Other policies that directly address low family income, such as the earned income tax credit, are moreeffective at reducing poverty."


Well there's your problem!

"Bottom Line: The public’s complete overestimation of how much companies earn in profits as a share of sales explains a lot. If $36 of every $100 in sales at a company like Walmart, McDonald’s, Home Depot, Ford Motor Company or a local dry cleaner or restaurant really did turn into profits, then of course those companies could afford to pay unrealistic living wages of $15 per hour, accept unreasonable demands from labor unions, provide all sorts of generous fringe benefits including weeks of paid holidays, long paid maternity leaves, and gold-plated pension programs, etc. The public that believes in the fantasy-world of sky-high 36% profit margins would naturally think companies are just being greedy and stingy when they don’t pay higher “living wages” and have to be forced to do so through minimum wage, or living wage, legislation".

I wish!

As anyone whoever ran a business or took a business course or follows the markers knows, margins on average are anywhere between 2% and 8% for businesses depending on what industry. Sure, some may be able to go as high as 25% or more but the average is much more muted.


'Sont tous riches' as the leftists here in Quebec squawk.

I always find it fascinating when tax agencies crack down on small business how no one ever seems to connect or understand this is detrimental to an economy; especially a society that's invested in a welfare apparatus. How can we pay for the ever expanding demands for more 'free stuff' if we bludgeon the very entities that generate the wealth and income?

No one talks about that, eh?

Of course, this ties into what the AEI is arguing. The average person thinks all businesses are awash in cash and can afford to 'pay more' or my personal favorite, 'fair share'. 

It all points to the general ignorance of what it is to run a business and fiNance as a whole.


Prepare for America's bankruptcy.

What a shame Le Quebecois ceased publication.

Classical liberal thought needs to be resuscitated.


Ever wonder if you're racist and don't realize it?

Me either.

BUT! There's a test for those of you who do!



"Instead of eating the kale she grew in her backyard garden in Portland, Oregon, this spring, Jessica Applegate will submit the leafy green plants for toxic metal testing.

Recent revelations that heavy metals – specifically arsenic, cadmium and chromium – are hovering above the city in toxic hotspots have stunned the eco-conscious city. Along with the news came an unlikely culprit: artisan glass manufacturers."

What is it with hipsters and kale?


Shit stains offer history clues to Hannibal's Crossing.


Why are so many Millennials socialists?

Just a wild stab: They're not overly informed?

Read CATO's take.

"Many find the popularity of socialism among young people alarming because a major lesson of the twentieth century has been that government economic planning (a.k.a. socialism) not only does not work, it hurts people. Another legitimate concern: socialism leads to cultural atrophy, government as an abusive caretaker, and less economic and social opportunities, not more.

While millennials’ support for socialism may reflect their youth, there is reason to believe that our increasingly gutted civic and economic instruction has failed to prepare them to see the potential pitfalls of socialistic policies."


America's left at war with the law of supply and demand.


Panama Papers!

Of course, it's more about government corruption and not tax evasion per se.

Of course, again, the solution will be to add more government agencies!


"CalPERS is learning that social responsibility can be a drag. The $290 billion California pension manager may reinvest in tobacco stocks after a report found that exiting the sector cost it $3 billion of potential investment gains over 15 years. There’s more to the idea than higher returns, though. Engaging financially with controversial firms can be a better way to effect change."


Share! Share damn you! Share!

"...Our modest proposal, then, is that the University of Chicago and similarly well-endowed private institutions should share their assets with Chicago State, Northeastern Illinois and other struggling public schools. Our students are incredible. They can also conduct exemplary research and can offer the best solutions and policies for the communities in which they live.
Or, better yet, why not nationalize the private universities so that all students in Chicago, from all communities, can benefit from their excellent resources?

Research isn't necessary to understand that sharing, not hoarding, is central to solving the “urban problems” of the day."

Sure? Why not?!

Modest. Cute.

"Fraud: While the global warming alarmists have done a good job of spreading fright, they haven’t been so good at hiding their real motivation. Yet another one has slipped up and revealed the catalyst driving the climate scare.

We have been told now for almost three decades that man has to change his ways or his fossil-fuel emissions will scorch Earth with catastrophic warming. Scientists, politicians and activists have maintained the narrative that their concern is only about caring for our planet and its inhabitants. But this is simply not true. The narrative is a ruse. They are after something entirely different.

If they were honest, the climate alarmists would admit that they are not working feverishly to hold down global temperatures — they would acknowledge that they are instead consumed with the goal of holding down capitalism and establishing a global welfare state."


Dangerous liars.


Did the White House censor Hollande saying 'Islamist Terrorism'?

Wouldn't surprise me.


Why Twinkies are cheaper than carrots.

"The statistics speak for themselves. Government subsidies are essentially supporting obesity and diabetes in adults AND children. Shouldn’t these funds be distributed among farmers who are growing vegetables, fruits and whole grains rather than those who are harvesting Twinkies and Little Debbie Snack Cakes? Maybe then, a bag of carrots will cost less than a tank of gas."


"He is not alone. Shortages of essential drugs, mostly generic medicines whose patents have long expired, are becoming increasingly frequent globally, prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to suggest minimum prices may be needed to keep some products on the market."

Price controls lead to shortages? Who knew?

The stupidity of it all.


I'm seeing low-level thugs here and it ain't the millionaire football players for once.
