The Perfect Metaphor

This is the perfect metaphor for something, but I don’t know what.

Bull that escaped slaughterhouse dies after being tranquilized in Queens backyard

A raging bull made a desperate break for freedom from a Queens slaughterhouse — but later died after getting into a beef with cops who shot him up with a dozen tranquilizer darts.

The black bovine barreled down Archer Ave. and Sutphin Blvd. after escaping from Slaughterhouse 8 on Beaver Road in Jamaica about 10:30 a.m.

The beast dodged traffic and pedestrians on Liberty Ave. and 150th St.

“It almost hit me,” said Robert Bonaccolta, 47, who saw the bull as he drove through Jamaica.

[…]

“I didn’t know what was going on,” one startled woman said. “At first I thought it was a person. Then my son calls me from his job in Manhattan and says, ‘Mom, I think there’s a cow loose in Queens.’ I said, ‘Yes! It’s in my backyard.’”

“I told my other son, ‘Get away from the windows!’ ” she said.

[…]

Cops put the animal in a horse unit truck and brought it to a city Animal Care and Control facility, but the bull died en route, officials said.

“Once the bull arrived at the care center ACC medical staff confirmed the death and the animal was released back into the custody of NYPD,” ACC spokeswoman Katy Hanson said.

The police took the bull to a Long Island crematorium, officials said. Slaughterhouse 8 did not comment after the incident.


It was his fate to be cremated, but it would have been better if he was roasted on a bunch on BBQ grills.

Oh, well. He is safe in the arms of Harambe now.

This is an open thread.

  1. Alan Turing is the father of computer science.

    In January 1952, Turing, then 39, started a relationship with Arnold Murray, a 19-year-old unemployed man. Turing had met Murray just before Christmas outside the Regal Cinema when walking down Manchester’s Oxford Road and invited him to lunch. On 23 January Turing’s house was burgled. Murray told Turing that the burglar was an acquaintance of his, and Turing reported the crime to the police. During the investigation he acknowledged a sexual relationship with Murray. Homosexual acts were criminal offences in the United Kingdom at that time,[110] and both men were charged with gross indecency under Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885.[111] Initial committal proceedings for the trial were held on 27 February during which Turing’s solicitor “reserved his defence”, i.e. did not argue or provide evidence against the allegations.

    Later, convinced by the advice of his brother and his own solicitor, Turing entered a plea of guilty.[112] The case, Regina v. Turing and Murray, was brought to trial on 31 March 1952.[113] Turing was convicted and given a choice between imprisonment and probation, which would be conditional on his agreement to undergo hormonal treatment designed to reduce libido. He accepted the option of treatment via injections of what was then called stilboestrol (now known as diethylstilbestrol or DES), a synthetic oestrogen; this treatment was continued for the course of one year. The treatment rendered Turing impotent and caused gynaecomastia,[114] fulfilling in the literal sense Turing’s prediction that “no doubt I shall emerge from it all a different man, but quite who I’ve not found out”.[115][116] Murray was given a conditional discharge.[117]

    Turing’s conviction led to the removal of his security clearance and barred him from continuing with his cryptographic consultancy for the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the British signals intelligence agency that had evolved from GC&CS in 1946 (though he kept his academic job). He was denied entry into the United States after his conviction in 1952, but was free to visit other European countries. Turing was never accused of espionage, but in common with all who had worked at Bletchley Park, he was prevented by the Official Secrets Act from discussing his war work.[118]

    Exclusive: Russian Bank Docs Show How Putin Laundered Money to Hillary & Podesta

    Now we know why Clinton & Co. were so desperate to frame Trump with ties to Putin

    Infowars investigative journalist Jerome Corsi met with former vice-head of Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, Curt Weldon, to discuss his committees’ deep research into the Clinton technology transfers to Russia in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations. Weldon validated much that is presented in the following article, which is part one of a series of investigative articles coming out over the upcoming week based on intel by Weldon and other sources:

    Speaking of metaphors, I picked this up in the comments at Althouse-

    “I was taken in by lefty disinformation, as intended, and I’m sorry I didn’t wait to hear Milo’s defence before I made adverse comments. The news is a cake that takes three days to bake – Day One, false story in the mainstream; Day two, bloggers and others gather correct info; Day Three, counter story is disseminated. On big stories where someone’s reputation is involved it’s important to keep in mind that the intake pipe for mainstream media news is downstream from a pipe pouring out raw sewage and it’s best not to gullibly drink it all in.”

    Liberals seeking refuge from reality now have a fake news website where they can pretend to live in a world where Hillary Clinton is president.

    EDITOR’S NOTE: When liberals are in power, they walk about swaggering, crowing and issuing endless reams of job-killing regulations and tax increases. But when they lose, they whimper and cry like little babies, seeking safe spaces and counseling. The latter, and not the former, is what we contend to be the true state of the American Liberal in 2017.

    My dad is so funny. He had never been on a computer before last week. He can’t go back to work. Boredom over took him. Now he’s on facebook all the time. I jokingly said you should start a blog. He said how do I do that. He has no idea about home row. Hunts and pecks. Online banking blew him away. I said I have not written a check in 15 years. He’s like Rip Van Winkle. Wait til he discovers he doesn’t have to hide porn. I have 10k available on my Dell account want to buy him a decent laptop have no idea from Adam. I use my kindle. 10″ works fine for me, but I don’t play games.
    It is profound. He was in a coma and now he discovered internet. He’s using baby girl’s first computer. HP piece of shit. No touch screen is so frustrating. He didn’t know anything about internet. I said dad you can read the local paper. Anything you want to know about is finger tips away. He’s not stupid. Six kids. He always worked. Has only SS. I’d like to keep him around. He’s my dad. I was so worried about boredom. He’ll never spend a grand on a computer. He would for kid but not for himself. I’m looking at Dell none of the stats make any sense to me. Touchscreen that allows him to play games.

I can pay it off in three months without hitting savings. He’s my fucking dad. He’s alive and found fun. I don’t know maybe he clothed and fed me for 17 years I can buy a laptop for him. I was worried. He always worked. COPD but he drove cars to auction and picked up rentals. He had purpose. Trach and coma said no mas. He was like a mexican taking shit side jobs. I knew it was going to be hard on him to wake up without purpose. Never thought internet. He is engaged. It beats an SSRI. He has lots to say about Milo. I am only half dumb my blue collar deacon dad is talking about his obnoxious gay son when he discusses Milo. So blessed to be here. I get to share in a very expensive little child’s life with my parents that once “hated” their fag son. Read what Laura Ingraham says about her brother.

    Podesta: ‘Forces within the FBI’ may have cost Clinton election

    Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said Monday that “forces within the FBI” may have sought to elect Donald Trump as president.

      • mothy67 says:

        I don’t think emails did diddly squat. Hillary lost when she joined obamas team. Had she ran 2008 in 2016 she would have won. Working class said all you do is insult me. What did she gain by telling miners they would be out of livelihood? She already had tree hugger vote. There was nothing to gain. Her campaign was awful. Insulting. I really want to see a forensic analysis of Philly votes. I went to Temple and lived in Center City. I do not buy 85% for Hillary. No way.

        • Somebody says:

          You hit the nail on the head Tim, she ran an awful campaign. Had the campaign listened to Bill things might have turned out differently. She gained absolutely nothing from her coal remarks, politics is about addition not subtraction. She needed to shore up the working class in the south and the rust belt. She didn’t and she lost, it’s as simple as that.

          I wouldn’t say the emails had no impact, but they weren’t the end all, be all. Corruption and word parsing is sort of baked into the Clinton cake. America knows that and has proven they are capable of looking the other way. Despite scandals WJC managed to win election and re-election, why? Because he connected with voters AND the economy was doing well. Bill had charm and a record, Hillary had neither. Besides middle east instability WTH did she accomplish as SOS? Aside from 9-11 funding what did she accomplish as senator? BTW a monkey could have gotten 9-11 relief funding. She ran on a myth, much like Obama, but lacked his charisma……but let’s blame the Russians and the FBI.

          All of the consultants involved in her campaign see their prospects drying up. Podesta has been a Clinton shill forever, what is he going to do now? That well has run dry. He’s looking to pin the blame on anything. Same for Mook, the boy wonder……not so much. They are all a sad lot, sure it was X……it wasn’t the fact that we thought Lena Dunham would appeal to middle America in the Bible belt…….oh no that was a great choice, it was definitely some X factor out of our control. Funny too how they never mention if Hillary hadn’t tried to circumvent FOIA laws with a home brewed server in a bathroom then there never would have been an FBI investigation. None of them can take responsibility for a damn thing, they’re all cut from the same cloth…..birds of feather and all that stuff.

          One last thing, lying about her health was also piss poor judgement. I think her collapse at the 9-11 memorial was as damaging if not more so than the emails. The reason I say that is because I know hard core Clintonistas that laughed at the email scandal, but took pause and were very nervous over the collapse. So you tell me which one had more impact. Did the Russians cause Hillary to collapse? Did the FBI? Did either of them convince her team to cover up her medical issues? No, they didn’t and neither the FBI or the Russians convinced team Clinton to make piss poor campaign decisions. Neither of them forced Hillary to stay off the trail for days on end either. They’re all sore losers as are their sycophants in the media. I agree with Dora, enough already….yawn tired of hearing their shit.

    ‘Sanctuary city’ law let gang member walk free from Rikers

    An illegal immigrant gang member from El Salvador was allowed to walk free from Rikers Island under Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Sanctuary City” law ­ in defiance of a federal petition to hold him for deportation, officials said Tuesday.

      Here’s another early release, he killed a Police Officer.
      California cop killed by gang member released from jail a week ago

      Keith Lane Boyer

      A gunfight Monday in the east Los Angeles County suburb of Whittier left one police officer dead, another injured and the suspect, who was also shot, in police custody.

      Whittier police officers Keith Lane Boyer and Patrick Hazell were responding to a call about a traffic accident when one of the men involved opened fire on the unsuspecting officers, the Associated Press reported.

      Boyer died as a result of his injuries and Hazell is expected to survive. The 26-year-old suspect, whose name had not been released as of early Tuesday morning, was shot when the officers returned fire. He is also expected to survive.

      Authorities later learned the suspect is a known gang member with a serious and violent criminal history and was just granted early release from the Los Angeles County jail about a week ago. Investigators also discovered that just hours before the gunfight, the suspect stole the car involved in the accident from his cousin, who he also killed.

      Lt. John Corina with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office said the call came in as a simple traffic accident, a case of a car being rear-ended. Corina said Boyer and Hazell had no further details when they responded to the call, but believed the suspect was in need of medical attention.

      Corina said when they got the suspect out of the car, they could see he had “tattoos all over his face and all over his neck.” The officers, for their own safety, began to pat him down and that’s when the suspect pulled a semi-automatic handgun from his waistband and opened fire.

      “They walked up on the vehicle believing the motorist was in need of medical help and then they ended up in a gunfight for their lives,” said Sheriff Jim McDonnell.

      Boyer, who was with the department for nearly 30 years, was transported to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries. Hazell, a three-year veteran of the force, was last listed in stable condition and expected to survive.

      Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper described Boyer as a friend who he had known for more than 25 years.

      “All of us have been grieving and I didn’t think I had any tears left,” Piper told reporters through additional tears.

      Piper said Boyer had recently talked about retiring. He was the first Whittier police officer to be killed in the line of duty since 1979.

    I had to run an errand. There is a McDonald’s at the top of my hill. I have not been in there since pup was wee. 7 years. I have gone through drive thru countless times. Never inside. Wow have they fucked up their simple model. Instead of a basic menu board they have these glaring LED screens that switch every 30 seconds. I wanted to pick up a few breakfast sandwhiches. I could not find egg mcmuffin on the screens. I asked cashier if there were any deals. She said egg mcmuffin two for 4. That was dandy. I got 6. I was unable to select from the Time’s Square visual assault.
    Who thought that was a good idea? Awful. I was in that rare thing called a good mood. Just wanted to pick up breakfast as a surprise. The menu is so bizarre. McDonalds is simplicity that was their genius. Who wants a headache ordering eggs? I was reading hot cakes and sausage thinking about it and screen changes. Very unnerving.

      McDonalds is a billion dollar company. Some whipper snapper said lets make the menu high tech. Probably got high fived. It does not work. It’s physically disconcerting. I might have spent more had I just been able to read and decide. How does such a yuuuge company not see such a big flaw. I wondered in 2016 how Hillary’s peeps did not see dim erosion with white blue collar. She spent a billion and was willfully blind? Did Mook not take the temperture, ever? Hillaryis44 would have been an easy obvious place to start.
      I made a lot of money as an event planner. I took the little jobs. My co-worker scoffed at 5,000 dollar graduations. She did big events. Six months to plan a party. I did 5k graduations with two faxes. I retired at 40. She went banrupt. Who is smart?
