Stilton’s Place

Day by Day

Idiot’s Corner

There is something in the mob mentality that grabs the fool by the necktie and leads him into a sure loss of his money. Tusser’s old saw, “A fool and his money are soon parted” is still so true.

Bitcoin – The song has ended…

Interesting that the crypto-currency mania ‘took off’ at about the same time that a few people identified a structural shortage in the available physical Gold supply in London.

Also interesting is the fact that about 40% of crypto-currency is owned by 1,000 people.
– Large holders of anything have a great opportunity (especially in an unregulated market) to orchestrate price movements. This always end badly…for the retail traders.

To quote Irving Berlin:
“The song has ended, but the melody lingers on.”

This is akin to amassing a mountain of iron pyrite and thinking you struck the mother lode.

Peccable reflections

The Party of “Truth, Light and Brotherly Love”, yes that very one that accuses the GOP, conservatives and all “Deplorables” of being racist SOB’s and bigots of the worst kind, produced this colorful character, a fundraiser from Missouri.

Democratic Fundraiser Charged With Racially Motivated Gun Crime

Well, this is a wild story, albeit a local one, coming from Missouri. A top fundraiser for the Democratic Party has been arrested and charged with a racially motivated gun crime. Matthew Lieberman is accused of drawing a handgun at two locations, firing shots, and shouting racial epithets. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that surveillance footage captured Lieberman with a firearm, along with shell casings at the scene that matched those found in his car. He was arrested on November 29. His bail has been set at $250,000 (via St. Louis Post-Dispatch):

Veteran Democratic fundraiser Matthew Lieberman has been charged with multiple felony gun crimes after allegedly firing a handgun and shouting racial slurs at eyewitnesses at two businesses Tuesday.

Lieberman pointed a handgun at someone at the Amoco gas station on Skinker Boulevard and Highway 40 (Interstate 64) while using racial epithets just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to court documents. He then allegedly fired multiple shots at the building from his car.

In court documents, investigators said surveillance footage showed Lieberman with the gun, and bullet casings at the scene matched the make and model of bullet casings found in Lieberman’s car.

Less than 15 minutes later, Lieberman was at the Jack in the Box on Hampton Avenue, shouting racial epithets at maintenance workers, according to court documents. He fired a gun several times from a Mercedes sedan, the documents say.

[…]

Lieberman, 38, was arrested Wednesday and now faces charges of unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action. One weapons charge includes a hate crime enhancement, with officers reporting that Lieberman’s “conduct and use of epithets indicate his actions to be motivated by race.”

You never can wonder more about the depths of hypocrisy that the Jackass Party can sink. From groping and grabbing to treason to gun control BS, they step in the stink thigh high.
