White Native Gangs Terrorise Largs Bay Locals   Jan 12 2015

Filed under Archives by Editor

The Gadfly went for a mix at Largs Bay on Tuesday night of last week with his sisters, collective aunts, and others, the party totalling up to five strong.

The Gadfly and its family went along the beach towards the Out-and-outer Harbour, undressed, and put its toe in the water. The writer was just teaching his aunt to swim when some half a dozen boys, ranging from fifteen to twenty annums undressed and plunged into the water, much to The Gadfly’s collective aunts’, sisters’, and others’ horror.

The boys amused themselves by pulling the eldest aunt’s toes, and this annoyed the present writer considerably, and he looked quite hard at the leg-pullers. We begged them to go away, but they said they would if we gave them six pence each. Not being affluent, The Gadfly’s special reporter said he’d sooner give them in charge.

It appears that these louts make it a practice of disturbing mixed bathers in this way, and get money out of them.

Will the policemen in charge of the district please keep an eye on the mob of boys that hangs about the Largs Bay Jetty?

The hooligans need it.

Ink Irresistable

Not the NYT Montaigne's what would I know? Huxley's almost anything about almost everything. Or Bierce and nothing matters. Codifying life's inimitable impromptu inclines irrestistably to essay.

Civilization ..

   defiles itself


Times past when warlords, priests and royalty hoarded luxury, life was a short grim struggle. Today most want for little yet still deny dignified survival to working poor, and ravage entire countries as collateral to our laissez faire fiesta.

Charity

~ its own reward

And what's going on in Land of the Free, Home of the Brave? As 40% of kids fail graduation the Iraqistan wars suck $2.4 trillion [CBO 2017 est]. Imagine this staggering sum applied to rebuilding The Great Society. Think of others.

This lazy unemployed

..crack-smoking welfare queen ran up U$15 trillion debt

lazy homeless scum
Odd how the ultra-wealthy gull even working poor to blame unemployed, disabled, weak, and vulnerable while but for the grace of God go all.

If he's a welfare leech then your soul is with the sociopaths and predators who own Warshington and its minions, the Repugnicans and Dumfocrats, gutting a once noble nation that aspired to equality.

This elite will survive the US economic train wreck, land softly on 300 million plundered taxpayers, then from fortresses of luxury and privilege prey elsewhere for spoils.

The dawn of civilization was greatly exaggerated.

Munch Montage


Painters, such a sad old bunch
None it seems more so than Munch
Upon that bridge with skies afire
A meme took flight to never tire.
