More Gehrish Garbage

Gehry's Facebook disaster

Frank Gehry has completed another one of his wretched, gehrish cartoons which he regularly swindles to the unsuspecting philistines as architecture. This time he peddled it to Mark Zuckerberg, who hired him to design a new home campus for Facebook in Menlo Park, CA.

Instead of a campus, they got a poorly functioning slab of concrete, steel, glass, plywood, spattered paint and a bit of obligatory metal siding that Gehry thinks of as a personal trademark, sort of like the Golden Arches at McDonalds.

The roof consists of a park with a ½ mile walking trail to stroll the breadth of the long narrow building. Situated right next to a highway, it provides a lovely and loud view of American pavement.

Considering Gehry’s uncanny ability to produce leaky roofs, this one won’t disappoint. Boasting over 400 trees and loads of grass, the roof is most likely leaking already and when you have a building full of computers, that’s a recipe for disaster. Just imagine the carnage after a Pacific storm passes through. The employees better get up there and enjoy the roof while it’s still open.

Also, the building is an open plan office, a design trend that has been clearly shown to be deleterious to employee health and mental well being, so maybe the final step in his design is to put up Foxconn safety nets, but made of spun titanium in the Gehry way.

Here are some instagram photos from the grand opening. Note the horrendous artwork and low-budget materials and finish. My favorite touch is the plywood brace designed to trip passersby.

Gehry describes the building as a “remarkably human environment” with a “toughness” and “rawness”. In other words, it’s a cheap, crappy, industrial box that will be torn down in 20 years.

CNN Cover image

The other day, CNN had a cover image on their website trying to scare people as per their standard MO, but this time the topic was domestic terrorism, and they were focusing on the top threats to US citizens.

Well, of course it would be Islamic terrorism, right? Considering that 99% of the terrorist actions being committed globally are attributable to Islam, how could it not be?

Not at CNN. They’re back to their old tricks of trying to identify right wing groups as the top threats in the U.S., stating in the most ludicrous manner that these groups are more dangerous than jihadis. Flashback: They initially blamed the Boston Marathon bombings on right wing groups. Also note that both of these clearly deceptive articles were written by Peter Bergen, an extreme leftist posing as an unbiased journalist.

Globally, Islamic terrorists have carried out more than 25,000 attacks since 9/1/2001. In March, they completed 244 attacks, resulting in 2076 critically injured and 1975 murdered people. Right wing groups couldn’t even be laughingly considered JV squads compared to those kinds of organizations.

Our country continues to suffer an invasion from the south due to our porous borders. Combined with the unexplainable appeal of ISIS to an ever increasing number of sociopathic Muslims, it becomes a matter of when, not if, the US starts seeing greater numbers of terrorist attacks along the lines of the Boston Marathon bombers. With the increasing number of FBI interventions that we are seeing, one can only wonder how many are getting through and when they will strike.

CNN will probably report it as youths involved in workplace violence, because it couldn’t possibly have anything to do with Islam.

 

 

Good God What a Fraud

Hillary in the know

In the latest episode of the Hillary Goes to Iowa adventure, she stages a chummy sit-down with complete strangers….err….I mean not really close personal friends of Hilly’s.

Three closely tied Democratic operatives pose as ordinary Iowans and sit down at a restaurant to chat it up with the people’s candidate. Unfortunately, it looks like the video has been pulled from the YouTube account, so we can’t witness the absolute ridiculousness of the interaction with these commoners. She only seems hell bent on proving the gullibility of Americans in this campaign of dishonesty.

In the clip are three randomly chosen folks:

  • Former Clinton intern, Austin Bird
  • U of Iowa College Democrat President, Carter Bell
  • Planned Parenthood employee, Sara Sedlacek

Even the mayor, also the Executive Director of the Democratic Party, was in the shop. You just can’t get more spontaneous than that.

Hilly is about as far from “folksy” as you can get, earning in excess of $200,000 per speaking engagment. What’s that, an hourly rate of $100k? Not much more than minimum wage.

Her disdain for the commoners has always been evident, but in her extreme elder years (born in 1947!), she is becoming less opaque. And she sure as hell isn’t going to let something like transparency and truth get in the way of her quest for total power.

Just in case you think she really has any interest in dealing with the common folk in the real world, check the differences between how she treats the media and how her opponent does. This is no endorsement of Rubio, but at least he comes across as a human being.
