Darwin Award for Kevin Greeson


Recommended Posts

1602038133_KevinGreeson.thumb.jpg.634d097b27da034d8d823e6cef7c0c3a.jpg

This here ammosexual is the late Kevin Greeson from Athens, Alabama. Kevin died in the invasion of the US Capital after accidentally tasering himself in his own testicles, triggering a fatal heart attack.

There are still 357 days left in this year, but it's hard to see how anyone can beat Kevin in this year's Darwin Awards.

Not eligible for a Darwin, he already spawned. A proud recipient of the "Too Dumb to Live" award.

Quote

One of the four dead rioters from January 6’s attack on the Capitol Building was Kevin Greeson, a rabid Trump supporter who wished death upon Nancy Pelosi and supported the Proud Boys.

He liked to pose with his many long firearms and state that he was willing to do violence to those who don’t sufficiently support Donald Trump.

Greeson invaded the Capitol Building and commenced looting. He attempted to remove a large painting of Thomas “Tip” O’Neill, speaker of the house in the 80s, but in reaching up to remove the painting, activated the taser in his pants pocket. This subjected his testicles to the full force of the electric blast, and with the switch continually pressed by the fold in his trousers, delivered many shocks there, one following another.

Even the heart of a great patriot such as Kevin Greeson could not withstand such an attack and he died of cardiac arrest, possibly with the painting of O’Neill draped over his lifeless form.

I think we can all agree: He will be missed.

This nut-job heard they were going to sack the Capitol, and he figured this was a ballsy thing to do.

Regarding the portrait he was trying to remove - he misunderstood when he overheard "just the Tip".

It would have been better if the shock came via a set of jumper leads but still a pretty good outcome. He should have an open coffin at his funeral. The look on his face would be gold.

It gets better. He had the taser tucked in his pants. He stood on a chair and reached up to loot something. As he leaned against the wall, the taser was activated by the pressure between him and the wall. Then, after the taser activated on his testicles, he fell on the floor in such a way that the taser trigger continued to activate from his own body weight. This continued until he had a heart attack.

I'm of two minds. It's a good point that massacre victims tend to generate sympathy. Can we program kill-bot drones to focus on ones holding the Confederate and Nazi flags? The rest will shit themselves and run away.

I recall the standard bearer was a prime target in traditional warfare.    The party of traditional values, marching with a slavery battle flag, should appreciate the attention and welcome the drone strike as proof they are traitors worthy of their family tradition.

No shit... I can easily picture my paternal grandfather, who considered himself a hereditary Republican, yanking a Nazi flag away from some tattooed skin head and jamming it up Skinhead's ass. Unfortunately I can also imagine my Dad trying it, in a rage, even though he knows quite well he's physically far beyond such antics now. Hell I'm getting up there myself (note- exercise more).

I had a great uncle that fought under Patton,    Uninjured, he never got the war out of his head to live a normal life.   His older brother looked after him for the next sixty years.   I cannot imagine a greater insult to his generation’s sacrifice then a major party accepting the NAZI cross as an emblem to be proudly carried as they try to destroy the republic.    The fact Republicans still refuse to declare their leader insane or traitor speaks volumes.    They may be beyond redemption.

Remember, they're not ALL beyond redemption

But at this point, they have to want to change. To be the good guys, we have to keep trying. But there's a large number of them who believe that "unifying the country" can only be accomplished by us surrendering to them.

First they need to acknowledge the basic facts: the COVID pandemic is the worst disaster for this country since WW2, and lack of leadership has made it worse. Rather than accept the result of an election, Trump staged a violent overthrow of the US gov't.

There's more basic fact to get across but let's start off with these two main ones. And to be the good guys, we have to keep trying

If house districts are drawn in a non-partisan and rational manner ie. no gerrymandering, we might have representatives who need to appeal across the spectrum.  Here's one idea:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/gerrymandering-redistricting-census-congress/2020/07/17/d1002146-c6f5-11ea-8ffe-372be8d82298_story.html

Of course that's too simple so some defective and elaborate process will be introduced.

Then there's the question of en years down the road, when a bunch of Trumpers and libtards have moved to be in a red or blue district.

Gerrymandering is definitely a thing. But there is no such thing as a system that players won't game, if it's worth winning. Rather than non-political, have all parties that pull more than 2% vote in any election in the past ten years sit down to do it. And/or make it law that all district have to be drawn with equal racial and equal income proportions.

And keep it simple, of course......

OK so some of ya are not very well informed about gerrymandering . . (one of my former students is a master of the art here in Ohio) 

1. GM is a tool of voter suppression and is intended to to that. It maximizes the number of votes that don't matter. 

2. Modern GM is almost entirely a project of the modern Reich, enabling minorities (white conservatives) to retain power in spite of not winning a majority of votes. 

3. There are easy solutions - ten states now have impartial re-districting boards. Ohio is not one of them. 

4. GM has contributed mightily to right wind extremism - Jim Jordan's only contest is in the GOP primary. 

5. GM keeps the Reich in power all across the country - you have to look at state leg districts, not just congressional. 

I'll be glad suggest sources on all of this, but you can easily look it up for yourselves.

I said that already. Should be a major, immediate-priority item along with a simple and easy to use voter registration system and an equally simple and easy to access voting system.

No more gerrymandering and no more voter suppression. Then let the chips fall where they may.

Really you should have used the purple font for that post because, while I like you, I have to say that is utterly idiotic. Also totally impractical in the real world.

Why not just keep it simple - every electorate the same population plus/minus say 5%, re-calculated every 6 years, and shortest possible boundary line?

California solved it at the state level. Historically, redistricting was handled by the legislature which had partisan needs and incumbent needs. Arnold Schwarzenegger was/is imperfect and how he got the job of governor was stupid. But oddly enough, he is a patriot and he wanted to do a job he wasn't trained for.

One of his ideas was non-partisan redistricting. He put it on the ballot in 2005 but unfortunately Republicans put a bunch of right wing nonsense on the same ballot. All of the initiatives went down, including redistricting. However, Arnie persevered. He fired his chief of staff; he told the Republicans to fuck off (not for the last time); he hired a lesbian Democrat and governed from the center.

He was (and remains) very popular and he re-proposed non-partisan redistricting and it passed. It took redistricting away from the legislature. No gerrymandering, no safe districts. Works pretty good. It can be done, even by Americans.

That a nice simple system. Have it done by a computer.

Then Democrats have some of their pointy-heads make sure to write the code so it favors them, and Republicans buy the company makes the computers and substitute a box with a cartoon rabbit in it.

There's NO system that won't be gamed, in time. My proposal was somewhat of a joke but one way to avoid entrenched interests from forcing their favored method is to sit them at a table with every entrenched interest and then cut their feet off. Kind of like how the Founding Father wrote the Constitution, originally.

Just limit the number of corners in a district, and prohibit it from cutting property in half.   Make it very hard for the politicians to chose their voters,    Simple, easy to understand, no complex formulas, no games or arguing what percent the resident is of what race.    I like your goal of including third parties though,
 

  “A district shake be delineated by straight lines, navigatable rivers, coasts, or state boarders,   It shall have no more the. eight corners that may or may not be 90’.   It shall not transect property lines used for residential or duel purposes.”

Gerrymandering is easy to solve: Computer program, based solely on population. No other inputs. Computer doesn't know race, where rich white guys are, where the folks the rich white guys are that they don't want to vote.  Re run every not-intentionally-fukked-up census. (Would be nice for the census to be fair too... ) Follow the straight-line rules Lark outlines. 

Basically it's a flood-fill algorithm, codable by anybody. Put the source up on GitHub for peer review. Multiple versions should result in the same result. (The F-16 flight computer failsafe method)

It would improve American politics immensely. Imagine if politicians could do something about the economy, healthcare, etc... rather than childishly arguing lines on a map for selfish reasons. Imagine if everybody's vote counted. Even though fully half of the population is below average intelligence, I'd still like their vote to count.

 

Like every other decent idea that is proven to work elsewhere on the planet: it'll never happen in the United States of Fail.
