“Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s yet another glorious day here within my Lair of Snarkitude, and things are clicking along as if they’re a fine Swiss timepiece: the birds are singing, the Sun is shining, the clouds are extra puffy, and since I just got my Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator back from the shop, let me assure you all, that once I get it hooked back up to the ol’ Intergalactic Death-Ray Cannon that’s been patiently waiting in my back yard for months, the planet Uranus is gonna be literal toast.
Nothing personal of course, I’m just really sick and tired of all the mispronunciations in regards to how you say its name. The correct one of course, being “YOOR-un-us”, and not I repeat, NOT, “YOUR-anus”.
As I said, it’s truly nothing personal, but after 50 years of hearing its moniker routinely mangled, on top of finding out that it smells like rotten eggs, due to its atmosphere being comprised of hydrogen sulfide, helium, methane, and some small traces of water and ammonia, I think that we should just nuke it from Earth, reprint the posters and science books, re-do the classroom models, and pretend it was never a thing to begin with.
And if we can’t do it for my benefit alone, then let’s do it for every underpaid and overworked grade-school science teacher, who has to listen to all of the jokes about it, come every beginning of the Fall semester.
Speaking of public education, the challenges it currently faces, such as the reduction of its infrastructure budgets and the repeated attacks upon its curriculum have all been the result of a campaign of focused harassment directed by agenda-driven Conservatives, who’ve in tandem, undertaken an effort to ban books, legally bar minority studies from being taught, and are at this very moment, literally rewriting established American History to suit their own machinated purposes
Singularly, such actions would at best, possess a debatably negligible influence upon the societal aspect of our intellectual culture, but when assembled collectively as they have been, their amalgamation of asininity has rapidly managed to mutate our once semi-intelligent nation, into a mentally-bereft mecca for these of the MAGA muttonhead persuasion.
As you well know, I write somewhat consistently about the academic mendacity of such persons, and while it can be great fun for all involved, save for the subject why is the focus of such, it’s also quite the terrifying glimpse into what a morass of gathered mental illness can publicly present itself as, along with the repercussions that it can deposit within the psyche of those who already lacked the skillset inherent to truly objective critical thinking.
As I said, on the one hand it can be a lot of laughs, based on the simple joy of sarcasm at the expense of others, but as a supplementary construct, it can trigger an accordance of primal fear that strikes at the very center of our primeval lizard-brains.
To note, when it’s a free willing exercise in arrogantly pathetic inanity, it looks like this:
But when it all goes metaphorically South in a Deplorable basket, this is what we’ve sadly come to expect:
“Sightseers” everyone, enjoying an under-promoted moment of the purest of “mostly peaceful chaos’, as described by the perennial histrionic hemorrhoid that is FOX News self-admitted lying demagogue, Tucker Carlson. However, if I were inclined to utter a few words in Carlson’s limited defense, I’d note that it’s not like he’s been trying to rewrite the history of any other abominably dark days in American history…
… well, not as of yet anyway.
However, today’s screed subject, the previously written about Gerry Catinari of Sacramento, CA, does virtually nothing else, when it gets right down to it. In fact, his ability to be a jackass beyond compare, has easily allowed me the wherewithal to amass the following amount of research material, in concern to his uniquely dumb as all fuckery takes on almost everything firm politics to conspiracies, and the trove is massive:
With no hyperbole involved, his file may just be the largest singular data cache that I’ve ever assembled centering on just one person, and up until the time he eventually “blocked” me, it showed no end to the slowing of its expansion. Keep this in mind if you would: between the initial publishing date of my last screed and the beginning drafting of this one an exceedingly short time-span later, Catinari added NINETY-TWO postings, in varying shades of puerility, inanity, and ignorance.
That’s a level of posting only seen in twelve-year-old TikTokkers, and angry White men with an assumed IQ of 12, such as the aforementioned Catinari. Now while he does strike me as the perfect analog for what a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Kooky-Dough-Conspiracy-Caramel would taste like if it were made from morons, he does represent a unique case study in regards to what I referenced above.
That being, what would it look like, if you knowingly took a mental affliction, and then optimistically granted it unfettered internet access? Given all that I’ve collated and observed in regards to Catinari’s dumber than a drunken Kardashian take on realty and all things encompassed by it, I’d have to foster an educated guess that it would look exactly like this:
This sort of delusional and wretchedly asinine theory-spinning crafted out of political desperation and wishful thinking, is the main reason just why not only are you not allowed to construct a family tree that resembles a tumbleweed, but why posting your wedding with Incestry.com, to inform all of your immediate relatives as to your need for a nice toaster-oven, really isn’t the intellectual flex that you think it is.
So, despite Trump’s grafting, self-admitted episodes of sexual assault, his incompetent mangling of the Federal pandemic response, his abusing the authority of the office to go after his political and personal enemies, be they real or imagined, his multiple attempts to illegally influence the results of a free and fair election, and the thankfully failed insurrection that it inspired, none of that actually counted for anything?
Yeah, that totally makes sense. The “real’ reason why Trump was twice-impeached, internationally disrespected, openly jeered, publicly reviled, and eventually FAIRLY voted out of the chair his fat ass never should have been allowed to occupy, in light of the cultural; carnage that he caused, was, because “they” were covering for a person that up until the election, most Americans had never heard of.
Even better, is Catinari’s assertion that the aforementioned yet anonymous “they”, were worried about being exposed by a man with such great intellect that he, and I swear to mythical God that I am not making this up; kept staring directly at the sun during a solar eclipse until told not to do so, claimed that “nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated“, and in addition, once gave a confused political speech about people having sex on boats to an audience of BOY SCOUTS.
He publicly suggested to scientists the possibility of killing the virus via the injecting of people with UV light or disinfectants. Then, after finding himself hospitalized with COVID-19, same said “stable genius” released photographs of himself signing blank pieces of paper as proof that he was still “working”, and in relation to a national disaster regarding Puerto Rico, said that a hurricane was “one of the wettest we’ve ever seen, from the standpoint of water“..
Let’s also not forget that he embarrassingly saluted a North Korean general, bragged incessantly about repeating the simple phrase “person, woman, man, camera, TV” as if he had delivered the modern-day equivalent of the Gettysburg Adress, reiterated multiple lies about the number of people at his weak-ass inauguration, and when once asked what he was thankful for at Thanksgiving he said….
And this narcissistic cretin was the one that “they” feared would be their evil machinations undoing?
It’s one thing to be dumb. But when you’re this goddamn stupid, they should just lock you in a room wallpapered in bubble-wrap, and water you every now and then, if only for the good of your long-suffering community, held-as-hostages-family, and alleged friends. Speaking of which, let’s meet one of Catinari’s only allies in his ever-continuing quest to embarrass himself in public, his heterosexual life-partner, Steve Laux:
Normally if I were dealing with actually intelligent people, I’d suggest that “class attracts class”, and leave it at that. However, in this case, watching these two attempting to play off each other in their two-person circle-jerk-as-a-straight-line, is cringe-inducing at best. Especially when Laux, after watching Catinari blow his Neocon nut-juice over every surface that he can aim at, steps in as Catinari’s allegorical squeegee mop:
I’ve often heard the phrase that “Birds of a feather, flock together”, but I never realized that it also applied to those people who are truly “bird-brained”, as well. I guess you do learn something new every day after all. That is, unless you’re a gullible simpleton, such as Catinari seems to be. This man of few letters and even less coherent thoughts, swallows’ conspiracies much in the same way that Jenna Jameson’s mouth once did for the random penii of on-screen pizza delivery drivers.
Along with a chance variety of plumbers, firemen, and bosses. That woman had truly dynamic thespian range.
Interestingly, while Catinari and Laux are ideologically connected at the hip, their style of attack is somewhat differing, as we shall come to see. Whereas Catinari seems to prefer applying the act of cravenly deflection, (that is when he’s not running away) Laux is obviously the one who considers himself to be an Alpha, despite the blatant reality that he’s the guy who goes and gets the Beta-Cucks their coffee.
Take for instance, this exchange, wherein Laux eventually displays his true character, in regards to the as yet unknown-reason-why suicide of the prominent billionaire financier Thomas H. Lee, who was once heralded as the “Envy of Wall Street”:
Lee was found dead in his office bathroom, with a single gunshot wound to his head, with his Smith & Wesson revolver lying next to him. No foul play is suspected, and Lee’s suicide has been described as “shockingly unexpected” by those who knew him well. And while Lee did have strong ties to the Democratic political hierarchy, there is no current wave of “Democratic suicides”, as Catinari without evidence or contextual accreditation, inferred.
Political suicide perhaps, by not taking a stringer stand against the fascist wave that is the currently guiding the GQP leadership, but real suicide? Not by a long shot, if you’ll pardon my tasteless pun. And speaking of tastelessness, here’s Laux’s ever so thoughtful commentary concerning the tragic death of someone he never met, never knew, and didn’t care about, until he read Catinari’s post:
Once again, the party of “Family Values”, “Pro-Life”, and “All Lives Matter”, shows us all, exactly who and what they truly are, and what they so proudly represent: hate, divisiveness, and a disturbingly sociopathic disconnection from their fellow humans, not seen since the glory days of the Völkischer Beobachter.
While Laux’s dedication to serving as an allegorical gimp for an obvious moron does say a lot about the strength of his loyalty, it also most certainly, highlights that much like Catinari, questioning the patently absurd is an ability that’s quite outside the scope of his intellectual reach. By way of yet another example, let us peruse Catinari’s smorgasbord of poorly presented mental offal, masquerading as a debate “point”:
Unquestionably, there are a few arguments to rationally explore within this miasma of paranoiac puerility, but as is Catinari’s way, anything that he doesn’t care to understand or bothered to engage in the merest research of, finds itself immediately pigeonholed as nothing less than a Machiavellian intrigue designed to deceive. A rather curious quirk of character, that I was more than happy to recognize out in the great wide open:
To his limited credit, Laux does somewhat nobly attempt to go down swinging, just like you’d expect a mentally-challenged Gibbon falling out of an unfounded Ivory Tower to do, but unfortunately, Laux’s application of sarcasm is really more of a verification of the frustration that he feels regarding his (and Catinari’s) consistent inability to ever win a debate using factual evidence, pulled from a credible source.
As I myself, have no idea what the impact of such failure must do upon one’s psyche, I would have to genuinely think that it must be vexing as all f**k. C’est la vie. Such is the path of the academically bereft.
Nevertheless, across the breadth of the conspiracy landscape, one of the main areas of deluded dissension that loons such as Catinari have most definitely overdosed on, is the Blue Pill parable alleging that modern-day vaccines are now a method of collective “control” over us all. You know, the society that’s so addicted to our personalized tech, that we barely take any dedicated notice of the existent reality around us to begin with?
With no due respect offered, I don’t fear Moderna or Pfizer, half as much as I fear T-Mobile cutting off my Google access. My snarkiness aside for this brief moment, it’s truly a fantasy so absurd, that even a gullibility-guzzling dipstick like Catinari wouldn’t dare dream to espouse it, and I say this with nothing less than supreme confidence:Goddammit. There goes yet another perfectly fine theory, concerning the intelligence of Humanity in general, right out the proverbial window. And lest we forget, those darn things are freaking expensive to replace. However; ignorance, even when bought at a bargain, costs far more in the long run, as these two posts attest to:
For the sake of clarity, I’ll address these two slices of loon-pie separately. First, the concept of a “cashless” society is nothing new, having been around since the first human traded valued goods for services, AKA; “bartering”.. However, the modern-day societal seeds were arguably planted in the early 1990’s with the advent of electronic banking and online transactional facilities such as Apple Pay, that serve as representative digital wallets.
At the moment, the Federal Reserve’s official position regarding a cash-free financial system, is as follows: “While the Federal Reserve has made no decisions on whether to pursue or implement a central bank digital currency, or CBDC, we have been exploring the potential benefits and risks of CBDCs from a variety of angles, including through technological research and experimentation. As part of this process, we sought public feedback on a range of topics related to CBDC. The Federal Reserve is committed to hearing a wide range of voices on these topics.”
Now, there is a great deal to be said in concern to the pros and the cons of such a system, but I harbor serious reservations that Catinari given his proclivity for regurgitating falsehoods as if he were a vomitous parrot, has done even the barest modicum of research either way, in regards to what they may be. As it is with all overlorded conveniences, power and the abuse or dissemination of it, depends solely on the individual/s in charge of it.
Do I think that this type of system could be detrimentally applied if it’s placed in the wrong hands? Yes, for the possibility does exist. But do I also believe that I should start running around screaming about how the sky entire is falling, just because an allegorical leaf landed at my feet? No. Mainly because unlike Catinari, I don’t live in a self-created dystopian world so fearful, it causes me to cast suspicion on all that I see.
Addressing Catinari’s second meme in concern to the two drugs that Trumpanzees latched onto like a Kardashian does with bad spousal choices, the data in regarding their overall ineffectiveness, was clearly stated from rather early on, when the C19 pandemic was juggernauting along. According to the FDA, Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea. Currently, data does not show ivermectin as being effective against C19.
Disturbingly, many of the mental midgets that Catinari aligns with, when faced with an inability to get the version of Ivermectin designed for human use, started taking large quintets of the version formulated specifically for, [wait for it] HORSES, instead. A decision that even the Lord of Natural Selection, Darwin himself, was caught off guard by. And that dude hands out multiple awards for human stupidity every year.
Several deaths and severe complications naturally followed this rash of inane conclusions made by the highly uneducated, because as it turns out, a drug manufactured for a 1200lb animal tends to be a mite bit too strong for the far-lighter creatures that ride upon its back. But what of the other drug Catinari mentioned, that being the immunosuppressive drug known as Hydroxychloroquine, you may ask?
Well, the hews there is just as bleak. According to a report released by the FDA, serious heart rhythm problems and other safety issues, including blood and lymph system disorders, kidney injuries, and liver problems and failure, were noted in people who had been using Hydroxychloroquine, and the drug itself showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death, speeding recovery, or displaying any ability to kill or inhibit the virus that causes C19.
And yet, Catinari’s pissed that the powers that be stepped in to dutifully quell both the drugs’ usage and the misinformation that was responsible for the easily preventable deaths and long-term physical harm that were arising from such? What absolutely detestable bastards these people must be, says I.
It’s almost as if they believe that they have the responsibility to protect the public from themselves, as if they were tasked to be the sitting Government or something. Oh, wait. Scratch that. Because not only are they the Government, that’s literally the obviously implied definition of their chartered obligations to us, their citizens.
Catinari though, being somewhat more than your average cultist, isn’t about to let a few pesky details such as truth and accuracy, get in the way of his groundless qualms that he and his fellow Neocons are the target of collusions. both malevolent and ingrained. So, when flying the banner of anti-vaxism fails to catch emblematic collective fire, there’s always the pennant of culture-war politics to shelter under:
Say what you will about Catinari, and I most certainly encourage you to do so, he’s definitely a guy who fond of the mendacity medley mashup, that’s for sure. And all of the classico are being played here: absurd conspicuous, unwarranted victimization, and of course, the ever-expanding scheme to set-up Donald Trump by using the nefarious tactic of exposing everything that he says, and everything that he does.
In order of debunking: no, the FBI did not pay Twitter 3.4M to “silence” Conservatives, and even far more indigenous is the fact that Catinari’s post disingenuously amalgamates two distinctly disparate occurrences in rider to cloud the actual issues at hand.
Documents released by Twitter’s current owner Elon Musk, show not only that the FBI flagged Twitter accounts the agency believed violated Twitter’s terms of service, (an action that any registered Twitter user can do) they also revealed that shows the FBI paid Twitter $3.4 million for Twitter’s processing of information requests the FBI made through the Stored Communications Act, which has NOTHING to do with said reported accounts.
Nowhere within the document cache, is there any discussion or demand that information be censored, Conservative-themed posts or accounts be taken down or suspended, or the requirement that any firm of content moderation be applied unequally to those users or accounts of the Right-leaning variety, either.
The documents however, do illustrate the company’s internal pondering about how to handle the Hunter Biden’s laptop story, how it handled the restricting of high-profile right-wing accounts that vitiated the TOS, which in the end, also included the former President, self-admitted adulterer, liar, grafter, and attempted insurrectionist, Donald J. Trump, as well. And once again, NOWHERE is there any mention or demand from the FBI that specific accounts or their postings be suspended or banned outright.
In addition, the internal certification shows that the information requests for which Twitter received said FBI-borne compensation refer to requests for data such as public or “protected” tweets, a user’s direct messages, the email or IP address allied with said account/s, or even the creation date of the account itself, and all of this, only under the clearly defined auspices of the Stored Communications Act. via the form of legal court orders such as subpoenas and warrants.
You knew, documentation that unlike the majority if Catinari’s fever-dreams, can actually be verified? Interestingly, Federal law also dictates that Twitter (and ither like companies) is entitled to compensation for the cost of constructing or conserving such data, to boot. But yeah… this exceedingly well-documented series of occurrences, is still all part of a deeply well-entrenched conspiracy, nevertheless.
As for Catinari’s rejoinder about the “woke” journalists who were temporarily banned for a week until the public outcry became too loud for Musk to ignore, I’d point out that for a so-called proponent of “Free Speech”, as Musk has remolded himself to be, banning said journalists whose only transgression was accurately pointing out his blatant hypocrisy in regards to such, served only to validate it as Gospel, and not as the hearsay that both he and Catinari wish it truly was.
This of course, now leaves us with one last false claim to disprove: the assertion that Pelosi’s staff “coordinated” to stop additional security from being sent to the Capitol on J6. Considering that Tucker has claimed that J6 was a day of ”mostly peaceful chaos”, and Catinari, that the persons involved were “set-up” to do so, an absurdity that I will discuss down the road in a bit, then I must ask this simple question:
Ii you knew that J6 was going to be either peaceful, or the initial step in setting forth a nefarious plan to turn the incident into political prisoners as Catinari pathetically propagates, wouldn’t you make it a specific point to either reduce the risk of an over effective security protocol creating unnecessary conflict or getting in the way of your plans, just as a precaution?
In other words, wouldn’t you have planned for a bare-bones security detail, rather than what was already pre-set in place? Seems strange that the Deep State would roll a “Valkyrie” type plan into motion, then blow it in the last ten minutes before its implementation by forgetting such a key detail, doesn’t it? But what do I know? I’m German, and we as a people, tend to learn from our crucially obvious mistakes.
Well at least by the second time, anyways.
Sadly, for Catinari’s claim of cabal-fomented malevolence, the Speaker of the House is not in charge of Capitol security. That responsibility falls upon the Capitol Police Board, which oversees the US Capitol Police and approves requests for National Guard assistance, as well. In addendum, Pelosi also cannot affect who is appointed to the Board, which consists of the House and Senate Sergeants at Arms, the Architect of the Capitol and the Chief of the Capitol Police.
In fact, not only are the Sergeants at Arms duly elected by the demonstrative political entities that they represent, they must also be confirmed by their said particular chambers, and even the Architect themselves, must be Congressionally dually confirmed to their position, as well.
Former US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, testified before the Senate in February of 2021, that Pelosi had no involvement in the security decisions made ahead of January 6, and that he approached both Sergeants at Arms on January 4, to request the National Guard via an Emergency Declaration from the Capitol Police Board.
And even Bee Barnett, director of communications and programs for the U.S. Capitol Historical Society, has stated that; “No one person oversees USCP — the oversight apparatus includes representation from the Architect of the Capitol, the House and Senate Sergeants at Arms, as well as committees from both Houses of Congress,”
So as usual, Catinari, as well as his “source”, is full of unadulterated horseshit, in regards to the veracity of both his clam and the existence of those supposed E-mails that even Google has yet to discover.
A brief aside for my newest BFF: As a noun: RESEARCH  Studious inquiry or examination. Especially; investigation or experimentation aimed at the discovery and interpretation of facts, revision of accepted theories or laws in the light of new facts, or practical application of such new or revised theories or laws.  The collecting of information about a particular subject  Careful or diligent search.
As a transitive verb: RESEARCH  To search or investigate exhaustively. (intransitive) To engage in research.
Glad I could threw in the assist Gerry, because it seems that you consistently need one when it comes to the act of separating your paranoid fantasies from easily definable if not transparently discoverable, reality. As you may have surmised, although while Catinari has the capacity to scour the web for erroneous partisan pretense, in tandem it also appears that he has no idea how to distinguish what’s obviously verified from what’s blatantly not.
Take this revisited example from earlier for instance, regarding the unexpected suicide of prominent billionaire financier Thomas H. Lee, where Catinari for whatever reason, felt the unnecessary need to expound upon his previously already superfluous “thoughts” in relation to a situation that he apparently didn’t bother to explore for one iota past his initial involvement:
WOW! That IS something. Especially if “they” are saying that Lee managed to successfully commit suicide by simultaneously shooting and hanging himself at the same time. Even I find that suspicious as all get out. Or I would, if such a thing was the case to begin with. SPOILER: it’s not. But how do I know this for certain, you ask? To be fair, the circumstances for my certified knowledge are kind of embarrassing:
Yes. The answer is yes. You DID read that correctly. The article link that Catinari HIMSELF posted, not only says nothing about his explosive claim that Lee’s self-orchestrated demise was the end result of his dually hanging and shooting himself, it also clearly defines exactly what did happen, as I noted with an air of almost giddy amusement to my satisfaction, and Catinari’s later eventual annoyance.
In case you missed it still, Catinari literally just inadvertently displayed incontestable evidence that he hadn’t even bothered to read what he willingly posted as his rock-solid “proof” that Lee’s tragic and unforeseen death, was far more mysterious, if not wholly machinated, past those factors which I previously discussed earlier.
Sad to say though, this isn’t the first time that he’s done this sort of thing, and I dare say that it won’t be the last time either, as he appears to be a creature of cravenly habit, in concern to his apparently incessant need to undergo self-propelled public humiliation, as reinforced by this posting:WOW, WHAT A STORY! Or it would be, “if”… I’m sure you already see where this is going, do you not?
Beating all statistical probabilities, Catinari’s pudding-sharp instincts have led him yet again, to a clearly obvious bear trap, replete with a flashing neon sign that reads; “Don’t stick your spawn-hammer inside this, whatever you do!”, and yet he’s gone ahead and done so anyway, because the ever-so–not-awake mentally-disconnected powerhouse that is Gerry Catarini, isn’t a man who follows the herd of sheep, he leads them.
And in this particular case, that would be right through the openly welcoming dears of a slaughterhouse:
Is anybody else out there, getting the same feeling as myself, that Catinari was that one kid in his high school who had to be repeatedly told not to go bobbing for apples inside the confines of a deep-fat fryer?
Sadder still, is that it took me (according to Google) the total sum of 0.49 seconds, to discover that this story was indeed, 100% false.
The satire site that is the source of this fanciful tale, is known as America’s Last Line of Defense, which clearly identifies its online content as being patently fallacious, and therefore, not to be taken seriously on any logical level. In fact, a vist to their home page, reveals the following info on open display:
“Before you complain and decide satire is synonymous with ‘comedy’: sat·ire ˈsaˌtī(ə)r noun: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, OR ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. Everything on this website is fiction. It is not a lie and it is not fake news because it is not real. If you believe that it is real, you should have your head examined.
Any similarities between this site’s pure fantasy and actual people, places, and events are purely coincidental and all images should be considered altered and satirical. See above if you’re still having an issue with that satire thing.”
Overall, that should be enough contextual clarity fir anyone whose brain still functions the way Nature intended it to,, but as we’ve seen, Catinari doesn’t place stock in anything that the GQP hasn’t cleared officially with Trump first. But even if you somehow missed that clearly defined caveat, there’s still plenty of obvious signs on the main site itself, that something about this story, isn’t quite right:
First off, there’s the circumstances of the subject matter itself: how in the name of sanity, would Milano supposedly “lose” 13M getting into a personal feud with the planet’s answer to what an allegedly racist and wholly narcissiic Marshmallow Peep might look like? Second, how dumb would you have to fucking be to honestly believe that the article’s author was actually named “Flagg Eagleton-Patriot”?
Catinari level obviously, would be my actually educated guess. This brings to mind a related query: if Catinari and his significant other have ever watched a porn film, did he also accept without question at that time, that the Christian-born name of the lead actor was actually indeed, “Rockhardt Steele”?
But the most obvious giveaway that this is a false narrative, is staring us directly in the face using the in-joke descriptive of “The Dunning-Kreuger Times”.
For those of us in the know, “Dunning-Kruger’” (AKA “the D-K Effect”) is a cognitive bias whereby people with limited knowledge or competence in a given intellectual or social domain greatly overestimate their own knowledge or competence in that domain relative to objective criteria or to the performance of their peers or of people in general. Remind us of anyone in particular, say Gerry, perhaps?
And while it’s true that “Misery loves company”, apparently so too, does ignorance as well. Who knew?
I have no idea what occurred within the shifting energies of the Space-Time Continuum to bring these two singular dipshits together, but I do get the impression that somewhere in an alternate universe, their visages popularly inhabit toilet paper rolls, and are openly disparaged via highly insulting drinking songs.
And because Catinari’s sense of irony is as well-developed as his grasp on reality itself, he was probably unaware of the humor provided by his posting the below meme, directly underneath the one that I just debunked:
Nevertheless, I do know what you’re thinking right now: sure, Catinari seems to be a world-class ignoramus, or perhaps even a pustular pinhead of near-Olympian proportions, but certainly after finding himself embarrassed by his own misinterpretation, and then bamboozled by a blatantly transparent satirical story, there’s no way in all of New Jersey, that he’d fall for such a ruse again, correct?
To that, all I can say is that your unwarranted optimism regarding Humanity in general, is truly admirable:
WOW! WHAT A… oh heck, you know far too well what’s coming next, and it’s just as you’d expect it to be:
Sigh. It seems that yet again, and despite his being called out several times in concern to his willful inability to undertake the merest of competent research in order to certify any of his claims, Catinari got suckered. However, in his exceedingly limited defense, it was perpetrated by a disingenuous prankster of only the highest caliber. That being of course, THE VERY SAME SATIRE SITE that made him look like a devoted disciple of dipshittery, somewhat earlier before:
I used to once hold, and that with a great deal of personal reserve, the simple faith that that no matter how devolved in intellect that Humanity might become, that there would never arise a person so goddamn dense, that they’d try to lick the beaters of a hand mixer while they were still moving, but after dealing with the mental midget that is Catinari, I’m no longer sure about the validity surrounding this formerly jocular take of mine.
However, it would be quite rude of me to dismiss him fully as a barely sentient and walking rice cake, for after all, nobody is truly a cartoon. As the old saying goes; “Hitler was nice to his dogs”, and all that. But that maxim gets tested when you realize that the addendum of “right up to the moment where he shot one, and poisoned the other”, never gets discussed.
There are shades of subtlety in everyone and to everything, so for me to casually disregard Catinari’s overall intellect could be perceived as being rather arrogant, I think. Just because I uncovered with zero effort, a truckload of ignorance and personal gullibility, doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s quite the dullard, now does it? For that, I would need an incontrovertible piece of evidence from the Universe itself:
Holy fucksticks… he really is a goddamn maroon. I know that Steve Laux, earlier in his insipid commentary. referenced the supposed condition of “TDS” [Trump Derangement Syndrome] that Liberals are allegedly afflicted with, but for the love of Mike Lindell, this is actually what it looks like.
When your guy loses SIXTY-FOUR LEGAL CHALLENGES IN A ROW, and then attempts a coup, it’s way past the time and place where you should have gotten off the train. If you’re still flying the allegorical flag of a disgraced twice-impeached traitor as certification of your allegorical patriotism, I can assure you all that is so not the flex that you think it is.
I mean… Catinari still openly supports a liar, a grafter, an adulterer, a self-admitted attacker of women, a seditious lecher, a dictator-praising… oh, I’m sorry what’ was that you were saying?
Of course, we do. What with it being out in the open and all, but also because and Trump ever the wounded narcissist, literally can’t keep his yap shut about his crimes to begin with. And yet, all of these proven case studies as to Trump’s guilt across a wide spectrum of criminality, passes through Catinari’s intellect unblemished and undigested, as if it were corn passing via the colon of a two-year-old.
As it always seemingly is with Neocons, everything that they do or say, is motivated by hate. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at how many regulations that they’ve drafted banning books, classroom studies, women’s’ body autonomy, and the newest scapegoat, Drag Queens, but not a single line scribed in regards to inflation, skyrocketing feed and home prices, aiding the poor, or helping the disadvantaged.
But they do have plenty to say about payback for transgressions, both real and imaginary:
What a great message of unification and diplomacy, delivered courtesy of the bearded ball of pubic hair that is Ted Cruz. No offense to whomever is calling the actual shits within Trump World, but if you’re going to deliver a threat that you want taken seriously, I’d suggest next time that your champion not be a whiny-ass Beta-bitch, whose spine is gifted with the same tensile strength that Kraft granted microwaved Velveeta.
And as you’d expect, I did have to point that out to Catinari’s bright as a burnt-out-bulb intellect:
As I said, what motivates today’s GQP, is HATE. Regardless of the actions be they peaceful or otherwise, of whomever it is that they are targeting at that moment in time, craven conservatives like Catinari, are just spoiling for a fight, nevertheless. That’s it. In a nutshell. They don’t want positives societal change, so much as they want the comfort of their own self-created chaos.
And if there’s one overriding priority that they have firmly squared away in their so-called minds, it’s to paint themselves as the “real” Americans, and everyone else as seditionary agents, which in and of itself is hilarious, if only for the inadvertent hypocrisy barely disguised within its message of supposed offense:
Once again, and in order of density, let us flay this bitch-fest alive. with all of the mercy it does not deserve. First, America has a number of “socialist” programs in place, ranging from Social Security, to your local Police and Fire departments, so stop using a buzzword Gerry, that you don’t know the meaning of to begin with.
Second, in relation to the “shredding” of the Constitution, your treasonous ex-president said; “Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution”, so maybe at this point of presenting yet another personal embarrassment, you should just seriously shut the fuck up.
Carrying on, no one has “opened the borders”, for if they had, I can guarantee you that every lawn in my neighborhood would look fantastic, and I’d be getting my morning Chai from one of the six taco trucks that would make it a point to park themselves outside my house, 24/7. They know where the real money is to be made, and that’s anywhere I am, when I find myself with a craving for chile relleno..
Down the road and in a future screed, I’m going to highlight your inherent racism, so for now, you’re just an ignorantly hateful bigot, and that’s all there is to say about that,
As we progress forward, there’s Catinari’s meme-claim that Leftist forces (I assume) are trying to “eliminate our history”, which as we all know is thinly veiled White Supremacy cede for “Them there Blacks are getting all uppity about our racist flags and statues of traitors again”. This level of tone-deaf hypocrisy common from the very same people who are currently demanding that African-American history not be taught in “their” schools, is priceless, if not entirely pathetic as well.
And since we’re already neck-deep in duplicity, why not go into its deep-end by addressing the meme’s whine that same said Lefties are “destroying our values”, as posited by the party that now lauds their indifference to misogyny, racism, homo & transphobia, antisemitism, greed, the suffering of sexual assault and gun violence survivors, as positives towards their building of a conservative legacy.
However, the last claim within this mentally-bereft meme, is truly the part that I like the most: “poisoning the minds of the next generation”, are we, Gerry? Do fucking tell:
Ahh… the joys of childhood. Is there anything more stereotypical of one’s youth, than the experience of being forcefully indoctrinated into a personality cult based in and on, the vilest characteristics of abominable human nature? Nay, says I. And if you think I’m being overly harsh here, just imagine this kid as a teenager, asking your daughter if she’d be his date for the Prom:
Quick show of hands? How many of you out there if you saw this kid on your doorstep, would circle him with salt and then scream bloody murder, until the services of an old priest and a young priest, could be successfully acquired? Yup. That’s what I thought. I have no idea who this modern-day member of the Hitlerjugend is, but I can assure you that at least one of his so-called parents, is a goddamn awful human being,
Don’t say it. You think that I, with that mention of the Hitlerjugend, just violated the tenets of Godwin’s Law, don’t you? Well, I maintain that I didn’t.
For those of you who may not know just what “Godwin’s Law” is, [AKA: Godwin’s Rule of Hitler analogies] it is a declarative belief asserting that if an online discussion goes on for any length of noticeable time, someone will eventually as a rule, compare someone else to Hitler. Interestingly, the law is surmised of being applicable to tête-à-têtes about any imaginable topic.
And the reason why I don’t feel that I in good faith, transgressed said societal law? This abominable post:
Yup. You read that right. Catinari just compared the Holocaust to the mocking of MAGAts, and did so with a straight face. Metaphorically speaking, that is. For the record, the Nazis murdered anywhere from 15,003,000 to 31,595,000 people, with the average academic consensus diplomatically centering on the tally of 20,946,000 deaths in total.
Victims included men, women, and up to 1,000,000 of this number, were children. Others that were slaughtered wholesale on this notation of Man’s barbarism towards their fellow man, include the disabled and chronically ill, the elderly, POW’s, forced laborers, camp inmates, staunch opponents of the NAZI regime, homosexuals, and those of Jewish, Slavic, Serbian, German, Czechoslovakian, Italian, Polish, French, and Ukrainian ancestry, as well.
And none of these horrific numbers BTW, factor in the civilian and military-related deaths associated with WW2, either but it’s not like Catinari himself “gets it”, or that, to begin with. Maya Angelou said it best: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” And the first thing that I believe whereas Catinari is involved, is that despite its humble origins, it is possible to bestow life upon a discount-brand box of Instant Vanilla Pudding, after all.
Tell you what, Gerry: when MAGA supporters are legally excluded from holding political office, when their children are legally barred from attending public schools and universities, legally disenfranchised from their right to vote, legally barred from having sex with or being able to marry a non-MAGA supporter, or can’t be admitted to municipal hospitals, or find themselves required to register their domestic and foreign property and assets to the Federal government, or are forced to sell their business to non-MAGAts, then I’ll start to see that your cause is truly under attack.
When you and your ideologically paranoid ilk are forbidden to be treated by non-MAGAt doctors, or are denied a license to practice law for being a MAGAt, or are forced to comply with a decree that bars you alone from entering a cinema, a theater, sports facilities, and the like, then I might get in bed with your idiocy. If you are ever forcibly forbidden to enter designated “non-MAGA” zones, then I’ll most certainly apologize for implying that you’re an absolute fucking loon, whose blood has been replaced with Orange Kool-Ade, and your brain with a spoiled cabbage.
However, I’m still gonna make fun of you regarding your hat choices, albeit a MAGA one, or the standard tin-foil I think that you’re currently wearing now. And if and when you and your fellow MAGA morons wind up in a place that has a sign like this out front, after being deposited there by the Trump train, I can guarantee that…
…then and ONLY then, will you finally “get it” as to why blindly following an obvious fascist who placed you there when you no longer served his purpose, may not have been the best of your already limited ideas. And just in case you were wondering Gerry, the sign says “WORK MAKES YOU FREE”, which is sort of ironic, because so does thinking critically, and thus far, I haven’t seen you utilize any of that.
As I’ve showcased using Catinari’s own words and postings, Neocons such as he tend to be fueled by a corrosive mixture comprised of unwarranted hate, willful ignorance, and a bizarre psychosis in which they attempt (and usually fail) to play themselves off as being either the triumphant victor or the aggrieved victim of cruel fate, but ,one if my favorites is when they try to do both, and only come off as hypocrites:
May I note that Catinari’s use of a cartoon character that is the antithesis of all that he represents and believes in, is just yet another example of his disconnection from established cultural icons. The odds are that he only saw the message, and knee-jerked it’s hypocrisy into his posting schedule, because as I’ve clearly established, he’s reactive, not proactive. Especially where the area of self-created traps is concerned:
I tells ya’, some days it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. With an ICBM. And all of the fish were dead to begin with
.From my lips to the ears of mythical God himself, I swear that the only thing sadder than a Conservative attempting to claim the mantle of false victimhood, is when they endeavor to do the same in regards to being masters of the moral high ground, as well. I’m honestly not sure if I should laugh at the chutzpah of this, or be seriously concerned for Catinari’s already tenuous grip on certified realty, given its disingenuousness.
If you would Gerry, please remind us all which party it was and is, that burned books in Tennessee, banned a library’s worth in Florida, demanded without evidence or due process, the arrest of its supposed political enemies, introduced bills attacking the LGBTQ Community directly, passes laws allowing more guns to flood out streets and schools, once had a member refer to women as being no more than “earthen vessels”, and oh yes, attempted to overthrow established democracy when it lost the mist powerful seat in the land because its de facto leader is a treasonous man-child?
Because those cats sound like the type of persons that I’d openly classify as “the Bad Guys”. Just sayin’.
For all of his incessantly petulant whining about the injustice he suffers at the hands of persons who’ve undertaken no such punitive actions against him, Catinari has forgotten the one basic rule that applies unilaterally to all of Humanity’s sins: It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways. No cabal. No Leftists. No Deep State. And no battalion of the imaginary Woke Warriors Brigade, either.
If Catinari needs to see the true enemy he must fight, then I’d suggest that he take a long deep look into a mirror.
To quote the character of Lucifer Morningstar from the graphic novel series, the Sandman; “Why do they blame me for all their little failings? They use my name as if I spent my entire days sitting on their shoulders, forcing them to commit acts they would otherwise find repulsive. ‘The devil made me do it.’ I have never made one of them do anything. Never. They live their own tiny lives. I do not live their lives for them.”
In essence Gerry, nobody’s treading on you, sweetie. So, suck it up, you delusional blubbercup.
Nonetheless, I can’t really place all the blame for Catinari’s cringe-inducing stupidity squarely on his shoulders alone, especially since they’re already overworked keeping that big block of granite that he wittily calls his head, from throwing off his balance. No, part of the culpability must be set at the cloven hooves of the “news sources” that he acquires his so-called “information” from.
Refreshingly, I’m not referring to any additional satire sites, despite his being quite fond of those, but to be fair, they only represent a truly infinitesimal portion of his daily diet of bullshit. It can be assumed that like mist nattering Neocons, Catinari trolls the standard low-rent Alt-Wrong websites looking for his daily fix of flatulent falsity, but as he’s also allegedly dumber than a tureen if dirt soup, he can’t even get that right.
Take for instance, these screen-grabs of the so-called journalism presented by the main website that Catinari employs to consistently embarrass himself in public, Whereas the stories themselves are obviously politically slanted to no one’s imminent surprise, it’s what they don’t possess, that should immediately catch your eye:
Did you catch it? And if not, how did you miss it?
Call me crazy, but I highly doubt that a knowledgeable and reputable journalistic media concern, would mangle the commonalities of proper grammar, as well as basic English, such as these so incompetently do. And when given that this is one of Catinari’s main sources for fueling his inane ideology, it’s pretty clear as to how he misinterprets the constructs of actual Reality, as he so often does.
In my estimation, the validity of a thing as it actually exists, is inconsequential as to what Catinari wants it to be, regardless of whether he can prove it or not. And keep in mind, that this is a guy who gets body-checked frequently in regards to the veracity of his so-called proof of theorem. Catinari simply does not learn. Nit from his mistakes, which are multiple and consistent. Not from the corrections related to them, which share the same unity., and most certainly, not from the sources of his patently false or cherry-picked information, either.
And when his “research’ is taken into consideration, it’s clear that Catinari doesn’t get irony, as well:
This blatant cluelessness is so not much a glitch in Catinari’s mental matrix, as it is a permanently installed feature, and it extends far past just his missing the point of the obvious. as this example so clearly shows:
Once again, and with all the due venomous sardonicism i can muster, do fucking tell, Gerry:
Still though, Catinari is indeed actually quite special, whereas his fellow brethren that have come before him are concerned, as unlike the majority of those same said sad Neocons, Catinari is seemingly never educated about anything he obsesses about.
Say what you will about my previous allegorical scratching posts, as mythical Lord knows that I do, but at least I’m confident that the bulk of them can competently tie their own shoes without the aid of a diagram or a YouTube video. Regardless of topic, Catinari just wades in up to that sewer pipe he refers to as his neck, and spouts off whatever he just read on the interweb, as if it were the purest of Gospels.
By way of example yet again, may I offer up his unique take on gun central, unfettered by the confines of history, legislation, common sense, or a basic grasp on how grammar actually tends to work::
Now let me see if I got Gerry’s “point” correct. According to this meme, “Rights” are immune to the advancement of technology which is also in its own unique way, a measure of the passage of Time, as well. I could point out that when the 2A was initially written, the top rate for bullets being fired, was around three or conceivably four rounds in a minute, as the gun itself could only hold one round at a time.
Today’s modern weaponry, such as an AR-15, can fire 45 rounds per minute, but of it is modified with what is known as a “bump stock”, that rate can be terrifyingly increased to 400 rounds per minute, or more.
I for one, have no idea what Thomas Jefferson might have thought if he could have foreseen that down the road, gun violence would be the number one cause of death for children in America, but given the man’s documented nature, I can only assume that he would be horrified at just exactly who it is that so casually wields the power to wage a personal war at the drop of a red hat,, as they claim that they have the unalterable “right” to do so:
Until now, I never thought I’d ever see a photo that captured the very essence of “small dick energy”, outside one of Donald Trump doing virtually anything, but this one just has to stand alone as the all-time champion, hands down. Four handguns, and four additional clips are necessary for you to go and order a sandwich, dude?
Look. I know it’s called “Subway”, but that’s just an easy to remember brand-name intended for a marketing campaign, it doesn’t mean that you’re actually riding on the one located in the heart of NYC, where such an armory can at times, be arguably essential. But gun-cucks like the jackass above, don’t actually carry their alternate penii out of fear for their personal safety, but as a gambit to intimidate others.
Specifically, (and hopefully) gun central advances and the Unites States Government itself.
Take for instance, this melting Vanilla pudding pop, one Stewart Rhodes, who just so happens to be, the founder of an anti-government “militia” group called the Oath Keepers:
Rhodes, seen here describing just how severely his being afflicted with Peyronie’s disease has altered his physiology, was convicted of seditious conspiracy and evidence tampering with respect to the January 6 United States Capitol attack that he used as cover to attempt overturning a free and fair election with his fellow insurrectionists, and as you’d imagine he’s got quite the belief system to justify what he tried and thankfully failed, to do.
Asserting that the federal government is part of an evil conspiracy resolved to husking Americans of their Constitutional rights, extremists such as Rhodes maintain that the 2A is crucial to maintain the allegorical bulwark that keeps freedom-loving patriots such as himself, from being crushed under the hobnailed jackboots of a government that he and his ilk see as being nothing less than tyrannical in its nature, if not its design.
In fact, the very name of the organization hails from the oath of service taken by the military, law enforcement, and other first responders, and whether you previously served, are currently serving, or never wore the uniform to begin with, their belief in honoring that oath regardless of carnage or consequence, is key.
As you may have noticed, Rhodes is also wearing an eye-patch, which of course, is an indication that he at some point in the past, sadly lost his eye to some form of random and unexpected traumatic illness or injury, perhaps suffered at the inadvertent misuse of an official Red Ryder, carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock, and a thing that tells time:
Normally, this in and of itself, is not what I would consider appropriate fodder for any form of humorous commentary, and for me to even infer such a horridly unsympathetic response given my own present-day eyesight concerns, would be by all estimations and critical perspectives, abominable at its best. Except that in this particular case, the jokes that I would never dare make, wrote themselves.
Why is that, you ask?
Maybe because the manner in which Rhodes lost said eye, is worthy of some slight mockery, regardless of how sympathetic a person you may be, for as it turns out, this steadfast defender of both American values and an inherent desire to upend them on the marching orders of a madman, had the severely and unintentionally hilarious misfortune to shoot HIMSELF in the face, WITH HIS OWN GUN.
So naturally, he’s definitely not the living theorem as to why we have and require common sense gun control laws in the first place. Honestly, it’s a good thing this ass-clown never merited access to a flamethrower, for if he had, I can only surmise that all would be left of him to remind us that he was ever here to begin with, would be a large crater in a Walmart parking lot, and a smoking pair of slightly charred boots dead-center in the middle of it, after his attempt to scrape gum off of said footwear, went horribly awry.
But Catinari was attempting to make a point, and I do need to address it directly. His avowal is that just because Technology changes, as well as the times we live in, that doesn’t mean that our collective Constitutional rights change as well. An interesting declaration. A challenging cultural construct, if I may be so bold. Perhaps, even the most succinct of synopses that he’s offered up to us all, thus far.
Unfortunately, though for both Catinari’s ego as well as his “argument”, it’s also 100% pure Grade-A bullshit. Not only do our collective Constitutional rights change, they’ve done so with sporadic occurrence over our country’s history, due to the fact that as the Constitution itself is regarded as being a “living document”, the ability to amend it as cultural norms shift, remains a viable option.
And despite the detail that this has only happened 27 times in the 247-year history of our Republic, said amendments have greatly impacted our rights, as I’m about to explain for the benefit of both the layman such as yourselves, as well as the dumb-fucks like Catinari. who if they only knew how to Google, would save their immediate family a lot of regret for not encouraging the once strongly debated abortion to take place as it should have, all those years ago.
To kick things off and in order of their inception, let us review the key Amendments that changed the collective rights of our fellow Americans, an aspect of history that Catinari could have discovered for himself, if he only could figure out how to either correctly open a book, or an additional tab on his internet browser.
To kick things off and in order of their inception, let us review the key Amendments that changed the collective rights of our fellow Americans, an aspect of history that Catinari could have discovered for himself, if he only could figure out how to either correctly open a book, or an additional tab on his internet browser.
First up is the 13th Amendment, which abolished the legality and practice of slavery within the entirety of the United States. You know, the thing that once allowed Americans the right to own other human beings in the same way that they can now own a toaster oven? This amendment was ratified on December 6, 1865, but let’s not all forget, “Rights don’t change’.
Next up, the 15th Amendment, which guaranteed that any citizen of the United States the right to vote, regardless of their race, allowing said former slaves, a voice in their former land of captivity. It was ratified on February 3, 1870, but let’s not all forget, “Rights don’t change”. Following on its heels some 50 years later, the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote, which finally allowed, in theory at least, some form of cultural equality between the sexes. This amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, but let’s not all forget, “Rights don’t change’.
To the delight of many, the 21st Amendment repealed the 18th, [AKA: “Prohibition”] and allowed for the sale, manufacture, transportation, and public consumption of alcohol within the United States once more. It was ratified on December 5, 1933, but let’s not all forget, “Rights don’t change’. And then there’s the 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age to 18, something that today’s modern Conservatives are still mad about, as before this, the voting age had been 21. This amendment was ratified on July 1, 1971, but let’s not all forget, “Rights don’t change’.
Oh wait… it kind if sort of looks like they do. Imagine that.
But as ignorance is far lighter in metaphorical weight than actual intelligence, Catinari is lucky in the fact that when it comes to backing up his talking points, he doesn’t have to work too hard to discover the intellectual heavyweights that lend credence to his asinine conclusions. That’s probably due to the reality that shit floats:
Lauren Boebert, everyone. A woman who, according to comedian Jimmy Kimmel, makes him think that “every time I hear her speak I expect it to turn into stepmother porn”.
In essence, she’s what Marjorie Taylor Greene might have been, if only she could have read what’s been written on her GED. And as this is yet another moron that Catinari relies on for forming his political introspection, I just have to ask the simplest oi questions: “How does Catinari manage to make toast every morning without gravely injuring himself?”
Seriously. I’m 100% truly curious. If anyone out there can formulate a solid guess, email it to me ASAP, because I really need to know. The 2A has always been a rallying cry for the Alt-Wrong, based on the several decades trolling red-meat whistle that “they” are coming to take “your” guns away, despite the fact that no such thing has or is currently happening within these here United States.
If anything as recent mass shootings have shown, the pall of gun restriction overreach, seems to be at its most lax point in years, something that Catinari himself, seemingly addresses with this particular meme, even though as usual, he has to amalgamate it with an unrelated topic, that being the scourge of opioid abuse:
Now, I could go on for days about e effectiveness of gun laws, but as all of that info is readily accessible on the Web, I’m not going to flog an obvious horse with the cudgel of Catinari’s inherent density.
However, I will note, that for all of their petulant posturing about wanting to reduce violent crime, Conservatives don’t seem to possess the faintest interest in eradicating its leading causes: devastating poverty, the lack of educational and economic opportunities, and the aftereffect of justice inequality, now do they? And as said slaughterfests have also proven, they don’t really give a damn about curbing gun violence, either.
Thoughts and prayers over active and effective legislation, anyone? Nevertheless, I will give Catinari some partial credit for being somewhat on board with the regulating of guns for once, just as the 2A actually mentions, within the verbiage that guntards tend to blatantly cherry pick whenever the issue of common-sense gun control is dared brought to the debate table.
For the record, while the 2A does say “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”, it also describes that such armament is for the specific maintenance of; “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”, which of course, these penis-lacking loons do not represent or protect, in any way, shape or form. whatsoever.
But as I said, let me give Catinari some partial credit for begrudgingly admitting that keeping guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous criminals, is a key beginning component in hopefully placing the bane of violent crime well on its way to becoming a distant memory, rather than what seems to be an almost daily occurrence.
And here I was, flippantly thinking that Catinari couldn’t see things for as they actually are, rather than how he wrongly perceives them to be. In fact, I’m kind if happy that I could throw Catinari this bone of graciousness, for it could possibly mean that maybe, just maybe, he’s not an entirely delusional…
… you know what? Never mind. He’s an absolute fucking moron, conceivably beyond all previous comparison. Verification of this assessment, as willingly provided by Catinari himself, comes in the form of yet again, another brain-dead post attempting to defend his absurd interpretation of the 2A. and as you probably guessed by now, his evidentiary “source” for such, is the same tad bit questionable media concern from earlier:
Read that again, if you would: ”AT THE TIME IT WAS ENACTED THE [I assume these illiterates meant the “2A”] APPLIED TO ALL TYPES OF ARMS”. Keeping in mind that as previously discussed, the fire rate of a then-modern-day weapon was at best, four rounds a minute, the belief that the 2A is somehow sacrosanct from the process of being amended at any given point in the far future, is patently ridiculous.
As I’ve oft-noted, the concept of a technologically-advanced society being held hostage to the mercurial precepts dictated by a Bronze-Age book of fairy-tales is insane, but then again, so is assuming that we have no choice but to live by the rubrics set on parchment by men who dressed in the manner of persons that some of their modern-day party equivalents, are now passing legislation against.
But leave it to Catinari, a dimwitted demagogue who routinely uses misspelled and grammatically incorrect sources of false and/or selectively cherry-picked information, to phone in the thinnest and weakest of arguments regarding a topic that he barely understands, much less could ever successfully debate:
Now if I were a betting man, I’d wager that it’s probably best to quit when you’re not ahead as a basic rule, but it’s becoming fairly apparent to me at least, that Catinari has ever heard of the maxim that suggests; “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and to remove all doubt”, sage advice which he seems unable to follow, regardless of how many times he crashes and burns because of his failure to do so.
Once again, I present a post that doesn’t provide the solid flex that Catinari thought it was truly going to do:
Well, this is odd. Gun rights got expanded in a country that already has 46 percent) of the worldwide total of civilian held firearms, resulting in an average of 120.5 firearms for every 100 residents. As well as the highest rate of children being killed by gun violence, and an unhealthy belief that owning one somehow makes you a suburban Rambo, and yet, the American crime rate doesn’t go down at all?
I’m sure that there’s no correlation to be found within any of these statistics, right? Faced with this information, I may have to modify my assertions regarding wherein the problem lies with Catinari’s severely limited intellect. I was originally thinking that the deficiency he possessed, had to be firmly centered between his ears, but now? I’m starting to give credence to the thought that it may also be between his legs, as well.
I could easily point out once more, that according to the collected data available ,an armed citizen only stops a mass shooting event less than 3% of the time, but yeah… I’m sure putting even less regulations between overpowered ordinance and the inexpert hands of the same people who think that the Illuminati controls the weather as well as the Oscars, is nothing less than an absolutely smashing idea.
See: “Kyle Rittenhouse”. But I did read that he’s a millionaire now, so maybe I should cut him some slack.
Speaking of granting paranoiac weapon-hoarding strangers some emblematic breathing room, one of the common ruses that guntards such as Catinari like to employ, is the argument that gun laws only “hurt” the law-abiding citizen, and not the criminal element that they’re (pardon the pun) targeting. And while nothing could be further from the truth than this, Catinari utilizes it anyway, albeit with a fresh twist:
First off, Gerry: no there were not, as current estimates range from the 2021 mark of 15.2 million hunting license holders, to a possible low of 11.4 million, due to the sport of hunting seeing a decline in its overall popularity over the last five years. The numbers that Catinari is misrepresenting here, seem to originate from a circa 2019 post on the Instagram website, and as is usual with examples of Neocon “proof”, it noticeably lacks the accreditation for just how it established those quantitative numbers in the first place.
And it’s also a worthless talking point, because the last time I or anybody checked the current stats, entire classrooms of our school-age children weren’t being slaughtered wholesale by those with a hankering for venison, nor is said carnage achieved using the standard armaments that deer hunters utilize to acquire their Sunday dinner, either. A reality that I was more than happy to address directly to Catinari:
Rubbish in, rubbish out, is Catinari’s stock in trade, and while it has served him well, if somewhat dishonorably, its also made it damn near nigh impossible for him to best any of his adversarial pundits, due to the realty that even when he actually does have a fact-based argument to draw from, he simply can’t help himself from tainting it with the inane ichor of his asinine ideology:
Dear mythical God. Reading yet another of Catinari’s never-ending false analogy amalgamations, it strikes me as to what must certainly happen after one insists on using a Q-tip, far past the point of its natural resistance. An opinion that I attempted to get across to Catinari, by way of my world-famous trademarked sensitivity:
See? I can be nice when the need for me to do so, arises. But as I close out this secondary facet of Catinari’s to-be-continued story-arc, I’d like to offer up this one last slice of his guntardian “logic’ that he clings to as if it were capable of making his being a walking example of Dunning-Kruger, far less relevant whereas he’s concerned:
Is there anyone out there, perhaps even a survivor of the Sobibor, Belzec, Treblinka, Chelmno, Auschwitz or Majdane death-camp system, that can clearly explain to this gibbering jackass YET AGAIN, exactly just why this analogy in relation to his not-at-all-equal-in-oppressive-severity-whining, is vile beyond all comparison?
For mythical Christ’s sake Gerry, the reality of one not being allowed to freely assemble an armory equivalent to that featured in a “Expendables” movie, is NOT the same as being the powerless victim of an actually documented government-sponsored Holocaust. Not to mention, there will never be a time or situation that will ever present you with even the metaphorical terror of such, you absolutely fallacious fuck-stick.
Understand this with all the due clarity that I can muster, Gerry: NOBODY IS COMING FOR YOUR UNNECESSARILY HOARDED STRAP-OM DICKS, NOT NOW, NOT EVER. NO ONE IS GOING TO PUT YOU ON A TRAIN THAT”S HEADING TO A DEATH-CAMP, AND THEN SUBJECT YOU TO THE INHUMAN ABOMINATION OF A ZYKLON-B SHOWER BEFORE THEY TURN YOU INTO A PAST MEMORY MADE OF ASH, SO KINDLY SHUT THE FUCK UP, IF YOU WOULD BE SO KIND.
I say “kind”, because Odin knows, my using the term “smart” would be a waste of an adjective that will never be applied to you. However, my then-response to this idiocy, was far more diplomatic:
Sigh… stupid is as Catinari does, and the reservoir that he draws said ignorance from, is seemingly endless. You’ve heard of the Marianas Trench? Well, meet its immediate competition for what was once considered to be the darkest of depths. Now, I’m not quite yet done sharing Catinari’s flatulent fallacies, but I also think that as I’m presenting a topic that’s specifically toxic, maybe we shouldn’t dive in all at once.
Therefore, I suggest that we take a break for the moment, and when we return, I’ll continue wondering aloud just what kind of person would post something like this without shame ;
… seems flummoxed when he receives this in return, rather than the praise he so pathetically craves:
But hey, as the very foundation of teaching a lesson that actually takes root, is all based on the construct of the undertaking of baby steps at first, I guess that I can’t be too sympathetic overall, if the learning curve ahead for Catinari might be somewhat steep.
