NATO melee II

I can't stop, these images are fantastic...

I really hope these guys were not protesting anything to do with capitalism.  HE IS WEARING an Abercrombie & Fitch shit.  For fuck sake dude....get it together.

WHAT are you doing?  Chicago is full of beautiful parks.  Why would you get all zen in the middle of a street?  You are stupid.  AND what..what?  The police are telling you to move and you won't?  It is typically never a good idea to sit in some meditation position in the middle of a street.  You would be told to move along regardless of NATO or crowd control measures.  The point you are trying to make is asinine.  I hope that club met your head after this was taken.

Sir - you are donning denim overalls and a Pokemon backpack....this may be why you were detained.
This is the Chicago PD rain gear?  Seems....odd.
For real....why are these people wielding thin plywood sticks?  A paint stirrer would be more effective.  Really?  You couldn't stop at Home Depot or The Crafty Beaver to pick up a real piece of wood?  You are so lazy you just went to the Blick Art Store on State Street.  If you are really going to assault a police officer and deal with the charges....make it count!

This was the scene in my neighborhood as protestors walked to the Mayor's home.  Hey - guys - he is probably not home....just sayin'....

Horses are large.  Don't mess with horses.  What are these people doing?  Not sane.
These folks are probably protesting the battle of Fort Dearborn.  IT IS OVER.  It was 200 years ago.  LET IT GO.  Some Indians died.  Get over it.

Seriously...why are you dressed like that?
The Amish are being arrested?  Perhaps this has gone too far....

NATO melee

I don't care if people protest. I just think it is an odd thing to do when you could spend your time in a more productive manner. In particular, I do not enjoy protestors that can't just follow the rules, listen to police, and be peaceful about it. If you get all rowdy and you are shoving policeman in riot gear, throwing bricks at them, and hitting them with some stick you bought at a craft store - why is it is a surprise you have been bloodied by a billy club? If you do not like government or the police then PLEASE - off the grid somewhere. Refrain from living in a major metropolitan area where normal citizen appreciate order. off the land deep in some forest in Montana, dig a well for water, buy some solar panels for electricity and some guns, and eat squirrel. Is someone stopping you? My favorite pics from NATO:
Yes. I have no idea why the streets were so heavily lined with police. You people are like wild animals or drunk toddlers. You can't stay where you are permitted so you must move blockades. What are you proving besides the fact that you are not fully evolved? I am sure the police of Chicago were SUPER thrilled to go through training to deal with your breed and most likely worked overtime, taking away from their free time because YOU have the free time to run wild and be destructive.
You tried to storm the Art Institute. Yes they were having some dinner in there. What would you have done if you got in there? Probably destroy priceless pieces of art because you are a classless barbarian. Yes - YOU SHOW those French Impressionists what you think of ... NATO! ( is this related?) broke a stick over a policeman's head. You are brilliant. Please - be outraged that you got the beat down for that.
When I want to understand where people are coming from and learn something...I ALWAYS have the most respect for those dressed like freaks.
Oh my god....I had NO IDEA that Rahm invented NATO. The chaos? Yes he is responsible because you have no control of your actions or your body. You are just a puppet. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? You should get kicked in the face for being stupid.
Once again....I am sure nothing brought the police more joy than being in Kevlar and full riot gear....when it is 90 degrees out. Let us also be aware the evil police provided a/c buses and water to the protestors.
You dumb bitch...WHAT ARE YOU DOING???? WHERE ARE YOU GOING? There is just more police and police on horses on the other side of all the police. What is your purpose? Are you high? Do you think this is an elaborate game of Red Rover? Let's say you break through....then what? What have you proved? OH then you are arrested and all mad. Great....YOU SHOULD BE ARRESTED. You were told over and over and over to GO HOME and you didn't. There is nothing over there for you. WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
OK fine - you are handing in your military honors and apparently you believe you were 'duped' into participating in the war. HOLD UP UNEDUCATED DUMMIES...ummmmmmmm....was there a draft? NO. YOU WILLING signed up for the military. No one made you. These wars have been going on for a LONG time. You were aware of them. So when you signed knew you would probably go over there. Stop being silly. You can't run around playing the conscientious objector card. This is not the 60's or 70's, this is not Vietnam. Speaking of that....
YOU MAKE ME SICK. STOP trying to recreate some iconic image from the 60's. THIS IS NOT THE SAME FUCKING THING. Your originality is piss poor. You are so lame. You are not, nor will you ever be part of some kind of TIME picture of the century. You are an idiot. Good job picking a weed and trying to be symbolic and failing.
In closing, luckily this is America and if one thing can bring police and protestors is fast food.

"I Can't Cook..."

Many things annoy me in life and the statement "I can't cook" is one of them. I believe this was birthed out of the Sex & The City era. "OH LOOK AT ME! I am a dumb bitch! I love $700 shoes and have no idea how to cook! I am so sophisticated, yet adorable!!!!" NO NO NO NO NO
Dumb bitches took this TV program way too literally. If you, as a person, are so simple that you could be easily described as a character in a TV are lame. If you aspire to BE THAT character, you should be in a mental hospital. decided that not being able to cook is some ADORABLE quality - YET you are a powerful, successful professinal woman!!! You are a FEMINIST! NO! YOU, my friend, are an idiot. Do you want to know what successful woman is a FUCKING genius? Love her or hate her. There is NO denying it: Martha Stewart.
She was a model as a teen, became a stockbroker, THEN created an fucking empire based on doing shit any self respecting woman should innately know how to do. THAT, my friends, is a role model. You can take your fake characters from an HBO series that you model your life after and shove that up your ass. Martha Stewart? You don't have to like her. But she is incredible and REAL!!! Back to cooking: This is how you cook something: take item wanting to be cooked and expose it to a source of heat. Fire, oven, microwave, radiator, car engine, dishwasher on heated dry. That is how something is cooked.
Now - I get that people say "I can't cook" and really mean "I don't want to cook" "I don't like to cook" "I care not to learn something new that is typically needed for survival on earth". When I say cook, I mean ANYTHING. I am not suggesting some novice cook open up a gourmet cookbook and make it happen. No no. Like anything in life you need to practice and work up to more difficult things. When one learns to play the piano they aren't handed some complicated piece and told to learn it. NO. They learn how to play Mary Had A Little Lamb and move forward. No one hands Anna Karenina over to a 7 year old to read. Once a child learns addition they don't move on to calculus. So - that is the thing. There are a zillion simple recipes in this world. Start there and move on. Realize something about me: I am not taken care of, nor have I been in a LOOOOOOOOOONG time. There may be a bit of jealousy in my outrage. More - it is my annoyance for idiots which we will get to later. Maybe I am jealous. I wish I had one less task on my plate. But I have taken care of myself forever. Some people have this luxury of going from mama and dada to college to living with a significant other and...cut. Scene. Done. Never actually had to take care of themselves.
I do everything. I take out the fucking garbage, I clean, I make the money, I pay the bills, I make meals, I do the taxes, I take care of ALL car issues (maintenance, oil change, city sticker, plate renewal, tire change, battery change), I replace belts on vacuum cleaners, I can haul a 150 pound air conditioner up 3 flights of stairs, I hang shelves, I get to and from airports, I unclog drains, I drive myself to the emergency room, I attach DVD players to TVs, I walk alone at night, I fix computers, I can navigate around my city, I relight pilot lights, I can put a 9 foot long orange coach in a Ford Explorer and drive it to a storage unit while steering with one hand and holding onto the couch with the other, I change light bulbs, I refill the ink on the printer, I do all the grocery shopping, I can miss a flight in a foreign land and rebook it ALL BY MYSELF. AMAZING! NO NO NO Not amazing. I am a human. These are the cards I was dealt and I figure it out. I am an able bodied human. I have a brain. When you have these can in fact do all normal life maintenance. is annoying when one claims they "can't cook". Most that say they 'can't cook' have not or do not actively do 90% of the above list. So figure it the fuck out. Unless you are handicapped, illiterate, or so dumb you can not follow directions....there is no reason you 'can't cook'. You just don't want to or have to. WHICH is awesome. Just don't say you 'can not' do it. You are spoiled, admit it. There are undoubtedly people that can't cook or have trouble cooking or just shouldn't cook: These guys:
No. I just don't want to eat meat from a rabid raccoon you found dead on the side of the road. This lady:
BUT...I bet she does cook. I would put money on it. She cooks up a storm. The person attached to this:
A little difficult, but again, they probably make more of an effort than those that "can't cook" This dude:
I would say he CAN NOT cook. BUT DON'T YOU DARE compare yourself to that. Your lack of cooking is purely laziness and an unwilling to learn and enrich your life. YOU ARE NOT A crippled genius. Don't fool yourself. This friend:
Calm down. I am not saying those with mental disabilities CAN'T cook. I am just saying...perhaps they should be supervised around an open flame. Microwave? Totally cool. IN fact...I bet many mentally challenged people enjoy cooking and would like to do more. So....what does that say about those able minded that 'can't cook'????
