This kinda crap should piss you off.

The California Primaries are coming up on June 5th, the campaign flyers are filling up mail boxes in every neighborhood, and everyone is eyeballing the race for Governor except for those who aren’t.

California has “Open Primaries” which allows one to vote for any candidate regardless of one’s party affiliation, i.e., Democrats may vote for Republican candidates and vice-versa. Although it may sound reasonable to some, it has the potential to allow one political party to determine the nominee of the opposing party, which dilutes and undermines the credibility of election results. Getting the weaker candidate of the opposing party nominated is the game.

The race for California Governor is interesting this year, because there’s a chance, albeit remote, that the voters might wrest control from the incumbent socialists. The top four contenders as of 28 May are:

Gavin Newsom (D)
John Cox (R)
Antonio (aka Tony Villar) Villaraigosa (D)
Travis Allen (R).

Now back to the campaign flyers. Check this out.

That’s a typical flyer of half-truths and misinformation, but who paid for it?

Major funding from
Reed Hastings (Netflix CEO)
Eli Broad (NYC multi-billionaire, philanthropist, anti-2nd Amendment, pro-taxes)
Michael Bloomberg (ex-Mayor of New York City)

Note that the not-so-cleverly-embedded “Hillary Logo” attempts to equate John Cox to HRC. Pheeew.

California State Assemblyman Travis Allen is certainly qualified for the position of Governor, but he’s a long shot compared to John Cox, so why would people opposing Cox support Allen? Seems obvious.

My respect for the late Muhammad Ali just went down a notch or two. Ohio Democrat Congressman Wayne Hays, Sly Stone, an unidentified British Jew and Ali discussed racism on The Mike Douglas Show.

Saturday Matinee – Tommy COOper, CockatOOs, TerryTOOns & Brenton WOOd

Old trick, but it’s a good ‘un. I had one that was similar – the bottles flipped from right side up to upside down using the same basic gaffe (like this). [via here.]

Attitude.

“Jazz Mad” TerryToons 1931 [via]. From Wiki:

Through much of its history, the studio [Terrytoons] was considered one of the lowest-quality houses in the field, to the point where Paul Terry noted, “Disney is the Tiffany’s in this business, and I am the Woolworth’s.” Terry’s studio had the lowest budgets and was among the slowest to adapt to new technologies such as sound (in about 1930) and Technicolor (in 1938), while its graphic style remained remarkably static for decades. Background music was entrusted to one man, Philip Scheib, and Terry’s refusal to pay royalties for popular songs forced Scheib to compose his own scores. Paul Terry took pride in producing a new cartoon every other week, regardless of the quality of the films.

In keeping with the accidental Double O Theme, here’s one more.

Alfred Jesse Smith, aka, Brenton Wood, had back-to-back hits in 1967: The Oogum Boogum Song and Gimme Little Sign. Filmed in Hacienda Heights California on “Thee Mr. Duran Show,” this video dates to pre-2006. Jump to 01:53 for the song.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, folks. Remember those we are memorializing and why.
