Lawyer, Memes, and The Game: The Game Faces Arrest Warrant After Skipping Out on Court Date October 3, 2018 at 7:32 am PDT By Ryan Naumann STORY via THE BLAST - “The Game attempted to skip out on a court hearing — citing his appearance on the “Wild N’ Out” — but the judge wasn’t interested in his excuses and issued a warrant for his arrest. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a judge found The Game in contempt of court for failing to appear for a hearing in his sexual assault case. The rapper had been ordered to show up, but he tried to claim he was too busy. Earlier this week, The Game filed court docs saying he had contractual obligations during October, including the final stretch of “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out Live.” Game claimed to have been trying to get all his financial information to turn over to Priscilla Rainey after he had been ordered to do. He asked the judge to allow his lawyer to represent him during the hearing. The judge wasn’t impressed and instead found the rapper in contempt and issued a bench warrant for his arrest. The warrant was stayed until October 5 at 9:00 AM, meaning the rapper has time to show up in court before he is arrested. Priscilla Rainey was a contestant on The Game’s VH1 reality show “She’s Got Game.” In her 2015 lawsuit, she claimed that during production, the rapper sexually assaulted her by forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks. A jury awarded her $7 million in damages. Rainey has accused The Game of refusing to turn over financial docs and at one point demanded he be found in contempt. She claimed he has yet to pay a dime on the judgment. The rapper demanded a new trial saying the judgment was too high but the judge recently shut him down saying the evidence proved Rainey’s case to the jury.” ( via @blast)

What a majestic symbol.</i></p> </blockquote> <p>Y'all know it’s just reacting like any bird of prey would and isn’t some manifestation of any political party’s will because it’s a bird? </p> <p>No?</p> <p>Kay.</p> </blockquote> <p>That eagle was actually well-trained.</p> <p>It attacked Trump not because “it’s a bird”.  It attacked Trump because Trump couldn’t keep his arm level and made for an insecure platform.  You have to keep your arm holding the bird very still or else they instinctively think “the branch is falling” and they try to fly off of it.</p> <p>Which is why you hold large birds like this:</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="450" data-orig-width="337"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/39721332512a60c09c918cc326ccb470/tumblr_inline_pbd9wzjuvL1tb6pwe_540.png" data-orig-height="450" data-orig-width="337"/></figure><figure data-orig-height="194" data-orig-width="259"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/61e7a23eadf0693ab26b05c8664e2691/tumblr_inline_pbd9xfLykh1tb6pwe_540.png" data-orig-height="194" data-orig-width="259"/></figure><p>Elbow tucked in close to the body to support the weight.</p> <p>Look in the first gif: the eagle was fine until Trump’s arm jerked downward because he couldn’t support the weight in that position.  He pulled away and his arm started flailing in the second gif, which is when the bird started to peck at him.</p> <p>Then when Trump made a move similar to that of trying to grab a gauntlet (3rd gif), the bird stopped him because he showed the bird he was bad at actually supporting it.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Trump didn’t know what to do, bungled it, and the bird was brooking none of his shit.</p> </blockquote> <p>Because even a TRAINED BIRD is still a bird and will react like a bird does. Because it’s a bird. And animals react as animals to do, even trained animals to improper handling. </p> <p>Bird. </p> </blockquote> <p>I’m saying that the bird was entirely fine with people holding it, grabbing it, and was trained to be around people.</p> <p><i>Unless</i> the person has actively done something wrong to tell the bird that they can’t be trusted.</p> <p>Which is exactly what happened.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>It’s a literal gifset of Trump trying and failing almost immediately to live up to <strike>bird</strike>American standards.</p> </blockquote> <p>So he doesn’t live up to American standards because he doesn’t know how to properly handle a large bird. Is what ya sayin to me. Because the bird behaves like a bird and he isn’t exactly versed in birds. Okay. </p> </blockquote> <p>I wanna die.</p> </blockquote> <p>Sam Eagle doesn’t trust Trump’s foreign policy.</p><p>AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU</p></blockquote> <p>This post is all over the place because yes it’s a bird, but No it didn’t just randomly attack him simply because it’s a bird. Yes it probably attacked because it was being improperly held, but no that is not some secret sign of Trump’s unworthiness as president. It’s a sign of Trump not being a professional bird handler.</p>

ADMITS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KILLED COMIC SALES April 3, 2017 Daniel Greenfield 50 526 While the Marvel-Disney monster has been ruling the box office, Marvel Comics sales have been having serious issues. One obvious factor was trying to force political correctness on readers by replacing Peter Parker, Iron Man, etc with ridiculously politically correct "diverse" versions In a revelation that would surprise no one, comic book readers were not interested in a Muslim Ms. Marvel, a Latino Spider-Man who isn't Peter Parker or the Angela Davis version of Iron Man. And Marvel's VP of Sales made the mistake of admitting that. <p><a href="http://princess-has-a-pen.tumblr.com/post/166223687686/trilllizard420-the1manpizzaparty" class="tumblr_blog">princess-has-a-pen</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://trilllizard420.tumblr.com/post/164525613653/the1manpizzaparty-trilllizard420" class="tumblr_blog">trilllizard420</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://the1manpizzaparty.tumblr.com/post/164445569495/trilllizard420-unicornlordart-well-somebodys" class="tumblr_blog">the1manpizzaparty</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://trilllizard420.tumblr.com/post/164374984198/unicornlordart-well-somebodys-fucking-lying" class="tumblr_blog">trilllizard420</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://unicornlordart.tumblr.com/post/164374320304/well-somebodys-fucking-lying" class="tumblr_blog">unicornlordart</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Well… Somebody’s fucking lying.</p></blockquote> <p>diversity in and of itself doesn’t kill comics, but pointless, endless reboots, massive events that rely on you keeping up with 12 given titles at any time, and constant, badly established legacy characters are why comics are failing</p> <p>not to mention splitting up iconic superhero titles among more than one person at once</p> <p>did you know there’s actually 3 people running around with the Wolverine codename at the moment?</p> <p>Let’s take some examples:</p> <p>Riri Williams popped up with no buildup after Tony Stark got murked, but he was apparently monitoring this 15 year old girl teen prodigy never mentioned before in his comics, entrusted with an AI based on his brain patterns and personality to mentor her.</p> <p>You know, as compared to however fucking many characters they could’ve given his legacy to.</p> <p>Also we’re supposed to believe someone as egotistical and self glorifying as Dr Doom would take on the identity of Iron Man?</p> <p>Please.</p> <p>It’s the same shit as Jane Foster as female Thor, with a healthy combination of plothole.</p> <p>Somehow, a human woman who has not been involved with Thor in way, with a terminal disease that was ravaging her body, somehow ended up ON THE MOON without any protection and managed to pick up Mjolnr and was found Worthy by it after the fight where Thor ceased to be Worthy.</p> <p>Like, you know, instead of Sif, a long time companion of Thor and who can pick up the hammer or Angela, who Marvel had then won a recent legal fight to be able to use….</p> <p>People don’t dislike it because it’s “diversity”</p> <p>They don’t like it because it’s weak, pandering writing that doesn’t stand up to internal logic.</p> <p>Now, an example of this done right is when Sam Wilson, aka, the Falcon, became Captain America</p> <p>for one thing, he was actually established as working closely with Steve Rogers for a long time in the comics before he was given the mantle. By Steve Rogers himself.</p> <p>See, at this point, Rogers got rapidly aged cause his super serum stopped working and he was an old man, so he couldn’t do it any more, but he was still around to give Sam advice and support over comms.</p> <p>But of course, until Marvel actually bothers to learn why people aren’t buying their shit, they’re gonna keep making the same mistakes, as long as they’re insulated by the losses of the MCU and being used by Disney as a vanity press, they’ll never learn and lose more ground to DC and the indies</p> <p>EDIT: Also I totally forgot, unrecognizable new brands they try to create.</p> <p>If your comic customers, as in the customers that go in and buy things, if they go “who’s this” and show you a comic, then they’re probably not gonna pick it up. They’re there to buy Spider-Man, Batman, Wolverine, X-Men, Avengers they can recognize, not fuckin Stardude or whatever odd new thing they’re gonna push is.</p> <p>It’s nothing to do with race of sex of the characters concerned, but if they’ve got no brand recognition to support their solo titles, they’re gonna flounder.</p> <p>Not even getting into the alienating, pointlessly political shite like that infamous Mockingbird “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda” t-shirt schlock stunt.</p> <p>What’s also more damaging than that is a flippant response to criticism or calling their readership racist assholes on twitter or whatever. That’s a really bad look for an industry professional when you’re not even an artist or a writer as someone essential to a comic book.</p> </blockquote> <p>this person forgot to mention how they shoehorn in unnecessary commentary and subplots no one was looking for. it honestly feels like that sometimes spider man stops mid fight and says “did i mention im a gay POC” (hyperbole but kind of true)</p> </blockquote> <p>this, sadly, is Not Hyperbole with America Chavez</p> </blockquote> <p>And the worst thing is?</p> <p>With tweaking and good writing, Riri and America (what a stupid name) could work.</p> <p>But because Marvel is run by incompetent pandering idiots, they’re the worst ideas to ever come out of the company.</p> </blockquote> <p>I honestly wish Riri had been done well because I don’t mind the concept.</p>

That’s the worst analogy ever. </p> <p>You know what we say when we get bucked off a horse? Get back on. Control the fear, don’t let the fear control you. I’ve almost died many different ways, and I learn from it and don’t let the fear control me.</p> <p>I especially don’t go out trying to dictate laws that will affect 325 million people without actually understanding what I’m talking about. This kid and people who support him are making a complete and utter mockery of the anti-gun stance by not knowing the first thing about guns, or the laws that are already on the book.</p> <p>Being almost killed doesn’t make someone a good advocate for a thing. 325 million people have every right to criticize someone who knows nothing about the thing he’s trying to ban. He can certainly talk all he wants, but we all have the right to tell him how and why he’s wrong and shouldn’t be dictating more useless laws on everyone else.</p> </blockquote> <p>Some of what you say I can see your point of view, but the way many people are dealing with this is very distasteful. The people bashing traumatised 17 year olds online are doing nothing but displaying how the world has become viscous, toxic, and immoral with only concern for political and financial gain. We’re all entitled to our opinions when they do not hurt others, whether anti gun control views are hurtful to others is still up for debate so I won’t be hypocritical and in turn bash you for your opinions. But if you agree with or participate in the harmful jokes towards minors, which the one above is skirting on this, then I absolutely will defend these kids regardless of their politics because violence of any type should not be used to prove points, especially considering it does nothing but prove there’s no actual point to be made.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t see any harmful jokes in this thread, nor do I agree with harmful jokes. People should focus on facts and evidence, not attacking someone.</p> <p>I live in an area that has very strict gun laws, and very high crime rates. Those criminals are not using legally gained guns, most of the time it’s a felon with a firearm. In the past 10 years, an average of around 8 children (18 and under) per year died in school shootings. More children are killed riding the school bus per year, yet the media makes school shootings seem like an epidemic, when it’s not.</p> <p>They are driving fear needlessly into people. Should we have precautions and safeguards? Of course. We protect government officials with firearms, we protect banks and courthouses and many other buildings with firearms, yet we don’t protect our own children.</p> <p>Around 400 children every year are shot in gang related drive by shootings just in Los Angeles alone, by illegal firearms. There is no law that is going to stop that. The laws that are in place that should have stopped the Parkland shooter failed because law enforcement didn’t do their job, on many occasions. They were warned, multiple times prior to the shooting, and during the shooting, they stood outside the building and did nothing while children were killed.</p> <p>Marching to ban firearms from citizens is not going to stop the law enforcement from failing again. Those people who failed at doing their job must be held accountable above all else, the corruption within the district needs to be addressed and put into the open and destroyed. Focusing on guns will help no one. People need to stop looking at the tool, and look at how to fix the actual root of the problems. </p> <p>For crime in general, this means working within the communities, going after corruption in the government, in the school districts, fixing the education system, helping people stay out of poverty. Poverty and education are key factors in solving crime, but also population density, diversity of culture, neighboring countries, and the ability to trust law enforcement. These are huge problems, and when people focus on the tool, it’s like they’re too busy looking at a mole on someone’s leg while they bleed out of a massive wound in their chest. </p> <p>And when people not only focus on the tool, but obviously know nothing of what they’re talking about, it makes it worse. It’s like someone claiming that if a woman gets pregnant from being raped, she wasn’t really raped because they think women can only conceive if they enjoyed it. It’s a blatant and dangerous form of ignorance, where they don’t care that they know nothing, they’re going to try to push for more laws against things they know nothing about, and that is a serious problem.</p> <p>It’s not right when either side goes for cheap shots, insults, ad hominems, etc. People should stick to the facts, especially when it comes to dictating a law that will affect hundreds of millions of innocent people. They shouldn’t spread fear, they are causing little kids to be terrified of something they are statistically probably never going to experience. Life is dangerous, anything can kill us, why should children be made to fear something like this? Why should someone who experienced something traumatic be considered an expert on it?</p> </blockquote> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mXOOgaC6jNRYdkvE8EDH5Kg">@writetheworldyours</a> What specifically have I said that was abusive to the victims? You’re the one who said what I posted warranted an “immediate unfollow”. This post was not a “harmful joke”, it was a picture of a fucking headline and an expression of my exasperation with this person trying to punish law-abiding companies for existing. There was literally nothing abusive here.</p> </blockquote> <p>When these “traumatized kids” start using the source of their trauma as a sledgehammer to force through their political goals, I start having problems.</p></blockquote> <p>Okay, quick question: I remember hearing something on here about Hogg not even being there during the shooting? Was there any truth to that claim?</p></blockquote> <p>^</p></blockquote> <p>Pretty sure that was a misinterpretation based on an out of context clip where he talks about bringing his camera from home after the initial Shooting. It’s the uncertainty of the accuracy of that claim which has stopped me from even making it because I don’t want to use any information that is false.

Being Alone, Children, and Crime: Sirius David Hogg calls for boycott of top investment firms over links to gunmakers The Hill 3 hours ago Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor David Hogg is calling for a boycott of two major investment management companies over their ties to gun manufacturers <p><a href="https://kamiyu910.tumblr.com/post/173054714888/writetheworldyours-kamiyu910" class="tumblr_blog">kamiyu910</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://writetheworldyours.tumblr.com/post/173053562300/kamiyu910-writetheworldyours-libertarirynn" class="tumblr_blog">writetheworldyours</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://kamiyu910.tumblr.com/post/173051007878/writetheworldyours-libertarirynn-can-this-kid" class="tumblr_blog">kamiyu910</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://writetheworldyours.tumblr.com/post/173047870045/libertarirynn-can-this-kid-just-stop-immediate" class="tumblr_blog">writetheworldyours</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/173044898979/can-this-kid-just-stop" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Can this kid just… Stop?</p></blockquote> <p>immediate unfollow</p> </blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="105" data-orig-width="483"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/92be71db253a0d18ab8c1b2e89a106f3/tumblr_inline_p7d2v8rw0o1s75wry_540.png" data-orig-height="105" data-orig-width="483"/></figure><p>So, you’re saying I should try to ban every single restaurant and store from selling vegetables and fruits and spices because I’m allergic to plants and people have almost killed me by not taking it seriously at all? That’s the worst analogy ever. </p> <p>You know what we say when we get bucked off a horse? Get back on. Control the fear, don’t let the fear control you. I’ve almost died many different ways, and I learn from it and don’t let the fear control me.</p> <p>I especially don’t go out trying to dictate laws that will affect 325 million people without actually understanding what I’m talking about. This kid and people who support him are making a complete and utter mockery of the anti-gun stance by not knowing the first thing about guns, or the laws that are already on the book.</p> <p>Being almost killed doesn’t make someone a good advocate for a thing. 325 million people have every right to criticize someone who knows nothing about the thing he’s trying to ban. He can certainly talk all he wants, but we all have the right to tell him how and why he’s wrong and shouldn’t be dictating more useless laws on everyone else.</p> </blockquote> <p>Some of what you say I can see your point of view, but the way many people are dealing with this is very distasteful. The people bashing traumatised 17 year olds online are doing nothing but displaying how the world has become viscous, toxic, and immoral with only concern for political and financial gain. We’re all entitled to our opinions when they do not hurt others, whether anti gun control views are hurtful to others is still up for debate so I won’t be hypocritical and in turn bash you for your opinions. But if you agree with or participate in the harmful jokes towards minors, which the one above is skirting on this, then I absolutely will defend these kids regardless of their politics because violence of any type should not be used to prove points, especially considering it does nothing but prove there’s no actual point to be made.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t see any harmful jokes in this thread, nor do I agree with harmful jokes. People should focus on facts and evidence, not attacking someone.</p> <p>I live in an area that has very strict gun laws, and very high crime rates. Those criminals are not using legally gained guns, most of the time it’s a felon with a firearm. In the past 10 years, an average of around 8 children (18 and under) per year died in school shootings. More children are killed riding the school bus per year, yet the media makes school shootings seem like an epidemic, when it’s not.</p> <p>They are driving fear needlessly into people. Should we have precautions and safeguards? Of course. We protect government officials with firearms, we protect banks and courthouses and many other buildings with firearms, yet we don’t protect our own children.</p> <p>Around 400 children every year are shot in gang related drive by shootings just in Los Angeles alone, by illegal firearms. There is no law that is going to stop that. The laws that are in place that should have stopped the Parkland shooter failed because law enforcement didn’t do their job, on many occasions. They were warned, multiple times prior to the shooting, and during the shooting, they stood outside the building and did nothing while children were killed.</p> <p>Marching to ban firearms from citizens is not going to stop the law enforcement from failing again. Those people who failed at doing their job must be held accountable above all else, the corruption within the district needs to be addressed and put into the open and destroyed. Focusing on guns will help no one. People need to stop looking at the tool, and look at how to fix the actual root of the problems. </p> <p>For crime in general, this means working within the communities, going after corruption in the government, in the school districts, fixing the education system, helping people stay out of poverty. Poverty and education are key factors in solving crime, but also population density, diversity of culture, neighboring countries, and the ability to trust law enforcement. These are huge problems, and when people focus on the tool, it’s like they’re too busy looking at a mole on someone’s leg while they bleed out of a massive wound in their chest. </p> <p>And when people not only focus on the tool, but obviously know nothing of what they’re talking about, it makes it worse. It’s like someone claiming that if a woman gets pregnant from being raped, she wasn’t really raped because they think women can only conceive if they enjoyed it. It’s a blatant and dangerous form of ignorance, where they don’t care that they know nothing, they’re going to try to push for more laws against things they know nothing about, and that is a serious problem.</p> <p>It’s not right when either side goes for cheap shots, insults, ad hominems, etc. People should stick to the facts, especially when it comes to dictating a law that will affect hundreds of millions of innocent people. They shouldn’t spread fear, they are causing little kids to be terrified of something they are statistically probably never going to experience. Life is dangerous, anything can kill us, why should children be made to fear something like this? Why should someone who experienced something traumatic be considered an expert on it?</p> </blockquote> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mXOOgaC6jNRYdkvE8EDH5Kg">@writetheworldyours</a> What specifically have I said that was abusive to the victims? You’re the one who said what I posted warranted an “immediate unfollow”. This post was not a “harmful joke”, it was a picture of a fucking headline and an expression of my exasperation with this person trying to punish law-abiding companies for existing. There was literally nothing abusive here.</p>

I hope those sorry sacks of shit who killed her rot in prison, but what’s more I think all the people who heard <i>multiple reports of this child’s abuse</i> and did NOTHING should be brought up on charges. Their gross negligence led to her death. I understand sometimes things tragically fly under the radar but this was *not* under the radar. The father reported the abuse. Other family members reported the abuse. The daycare workers reported the abuse. THE CHILD REPEATEDLY TOLD ANYONE WHO WOULD LISTEN THAT SHE WAS BEING ABUSED. She had multiple physical injuries evident of abuse. What the hell else was supposed to happen? Literally everyone involved here did exactly what they were supposed to do except the people whose very job was to protect this child. </p> <p>Their failure here is despicable.</p> </blockquote> <p>While I know this is emotional, it would be inappropriate to bring social service workers, police, doctors, etc for failing to do the right thing in this circumstance. Their conduct reviewed and them being disciplined or fired sure, but criminal charges sets a dangerous precedent.</p> <p>One thing that I think really does need to change is how family court views men in situations like this where the idea that a child will always be better off with their mother and fathers are rarely considered as good caregivers needs to be challenged as archaic and regressive.</p> </blockquote> <p>“While I know this is emotional, it would be inappropriate to bring social service workers, police, doctors, etc for failing to do the right thing in this circumstance. Their conduct reviewed and them being disciplined or fired sure, but criminal charges sets a dangerous precedent.”</p> <p>There already is a precedent. It’s called Criminally negligent homicide. If it can be proven that they were aware of the abuse and did nothing to prevent it or protect her from it, they could reasonably be brought up in charges.</p> </blockquote> <p>Negligent homicide is very hard to prove, for good reason. ‘Proven aware of the abuse’ is the big one, not just &lsquo;I had possible suspicions.’ Hindsight is 20/20, and not saying the situation doesn’t suck, but throwing everyone around it under the bus isn’t the way to go.</p></blockquote> <p>Three separate cases were open regarding her abuse and they were all closed. They had reports from multiple witnesses as well as CONSIDERABLE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE of abuse. This wasn’t just some kind of vague hunch, her abuse was absolutely provable. I am not “throwing anyone under the bus”, people were absolute shit at their jobs here and their failure lead to this little girl’s death.</p><p>At the end of the day I’m not going to spend a lot of time quibbling on whether not they should be charged, I’m just saying there is a precedent for it and this was gross negligence.</p>
