Latest Democratic Scandal

1 April 2011

This internet ad by liberal activists is already causing a furor after only two days. A video is worth a million words, so just watch it and see. Your taxpayer dollars may have funded this… Was it worth it? (H/T: Stacy McCain)

It’s All Fun And Games Until Gojira Arrives

18 March 2011

From Japan, in their own inimitable style, comes the video “Nuclear Boy” by media artist Kazuhiko Hachiya providing commentary on the status of the Fukushima nuclear reactor.

British columnist James Delingpole provides some numbers for comparison. (H/T: I Hate the Media)

Nuclear fatalities in the last ten years: 7
Wind farm fatalities in the last ten years: 44.

In those ten years nuclear provided thirty times the energy of wind. This means in the last decade, nuclear has been around 200 times safer than wind on an energy produced/accidents basis.

Soylent Green reminds us that Japan’s biggest worries right now are cholera, plague, and dysentery; not neutrons.

He Also Lost the Vote for Prom Queen

8 March 2011

Providing even more evidence that people are growing increasingly disenchanted with the Hopium™ habit and looking forward to real Change in 2012, schools just aren’t interested in seeing Teh One or hearing the unicorn tales that he loves to spin anymore. The youth are supposed to be the Left’s big target (can I say that word?) audience, but for some reason schools just aren’t interested this year in inviting Obama to use them for backdrops. (Maybe they just can’t afford to power his omnipresent teleprompters during these tight times.) According to a leaked secret White House memo (H/T: AllahPundit, Hot Air)

CBS — The competition was extended from the February 25 deadline until Friday, March 11, after few schools met the original application deadline. CBS News has learned a White House Communications Office internal memo dated February 22 noted “a major issue with the Commencement Challenge.” “As of yesterday we had received 14 applications and the deadline is Friday,” the memo said. The memo also urged recipients to, “please keep the application number close hold.” A follow-up memo on February 28 reported receipt of 68 applications. Noting the competition among more than 1,000 schools last year, the memo said, “Something isn’t working.” It called on staffers to ask “friendly congressional, gubernatorial and mayoral offices” to encourage schools to apply. “We should also make sure the Cabinet is pushing the competition out to their lists,” the memo said. The note reiterated, “We do not want the actual application number out there (we didn’t release the number of applications we received last year until after the submission period)-so folks should not use it in their pitches.”

You can just feel the butthurt oozing out of that memo, can’t you? My heart bleeds for them… or, at least, it would if I wasn’t afraid of the condition placing me in front of a death panel. (NSFW image below cut.)

Fly The Sexual Abuse Skies

15 November 2010

I personally haven’t flown anywhere in five years, because I thought airport security was getting unreasonable back then. Apparently, I hadn’t seen anything yet; but if I flew today, airport security would get to see it all. It remains an open question of how many other people will also get to see (H/T GoV) your p0rnoscanner pictures – in England, after a celebrity went through a body scanner, security personnel printed out his nude scan and asked him to autograph it. Tens of thousands of images are known to have been saved from a millimeter wave system at the security checkpoint of a single Florida courthouse, despite ongoing claims by the TSA that such things are impossible.

However, even though I haven’t personally been subjected to the machines (or the alternate opt-out body search which follows new prison-shower-room parameters), airport security and protests against it have been much in the news lately. A pilot has refused the scan for privacy issues, although airline unions have raised concerns about the health issue of frequent X-rays for their personnel who have to go through them every time they go on a flight. (The same health concerns apply to any frequent travelers, or other people who are particularly vulnerable to X-rays like pregnant women and children. My wife pointed out that women also get X-rays more frequently as they get older because of mammograms, although I believe ObamaCare is trying to remove that concern – they already advocate reducing mammograms as a money-saving measure.) Another man, John Tyner, was ejected from an airport and threatened with a fine when he refused to go through either the scanner or allow himself to be groped.

Sign On San Diego — …He may not be the first traveler tossed from an airport for security reasons but he could well be the first to have the whole experience captured on his cell phone. During the next half-hour, his cell phone recorded Tyner refusing to submit to a full body scan, opting for the traditional metal scanner and a basic “pat down” – and then refusing to submit to a “groin check” by a TSA security guard. He even told the guard, “You touch my junk and I’m going to have you arrested.” …

“OK, I don’t understand how a sexual assault can be made a condition of my flying.”
“This is not considered a sexual assault,” replied the supervisor, calmly.
“It would be if you were not the government,” said Tyner.
“By buying your ticket you gave up a lot of rights,” countered the TSA supervisor.
“I think the government took them away after 9/11,” said Tyner.

The TSA thugs are even performing full-body searches on small children, which is yet another reason why I’m not taking my family into an airport any time soon.

Keeping You Abreast of News Across the Globe(s)

15 November 2010

(Peace through superior bust size)

If the far-right Danish People’s party foreign policy spokesman Peter Skaarup has his way, anyone wishing to immigrate to Denmark must be able to handle to sight of breasts. (H/T: Weasel Zippers)

Al-Arabiya— According to Skaarup, a documentary film about Denmark that will be shown as part of an upcoming immigration test for foreigners needs to have a pair of breasts in it, to intimidate any extremists from attempting to enter the tiny Scandinavian country. Because a topless woman on a beach would be a good example of the Danish open-mindedness, Skaarup points out. This, he said, is mainly relevant for immigrants coming from fundamentalist societies where women are oppressed and are not allowed to display their sexuality or even their hair. On the other hand Danish women are allowed to wear – or not wear – what they please, underlining that he is not trying to provoke anyone with his statements. … “Topless bathing probably isn’t a common sight on Pakistani beaches, but in Denmark it is still considered quite normal. I honestly believe that by including a couple of bare breasts in the movie, extremists may have to think twice before deciding to come to Denmark,” he said.

I’m pretty sure that they’re aware of our decadent Western ways already, which is why they’re coming into Europe and America to kindly offer us their three paths to salvation: conversion, slavery, or death.

Integration spokesman for the Conservative Party, one of two government parties, Naser Khader says “a pair of naked breasts is no protection against extremism.”

Maybe not, but they certainly couldn’t hurt. Maybe a ham sandwich should be served while they’re watching the movie?

Attack of the 50-Foot Sarahcuda

Mother Jones magazine’s latest cover is designed to cast Sarah Palin in the role of a terrifying monster (H/T: WeaselZippers), but only succeeds in making her look hawt.

The Whole Gore-y Story

24 June 2010

There was some comedy and mockery, at least in the right-wing blogosphere, after the announcement that Al and Tipper Gore were planning to separate after forty years of marriage. Even though something very serious must have happened to allow Tipper enough motivation to achieve escape velocity from Al’s enormous mass, the rest of the world (particularly the MSM) accepted at face value the statement that the divorce was not in any way the result of any infidelity or cheating – even though some of us wondered why they’d be so quick as to rebut an accusation which nobody had made if there weren’t an underlying reason… But, since the Goracle is the beloved of the mainstream media, you would certainly not expect to see any speculation or actual reporting coming from them. After all, it’s not like he’s a Republican or anything. So, naturally, it was left to a media source with more integrity and credibility than the MSM – The National Enquirer – to break the news:

AL GORE has been accused of sexually attacking a masseuse in Portland, Oregon – and is named in the official police report about the alleged assault, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively! The bombshell story will appear in the new issue of The ENQUIRER and will include the secret police documents, a photo of the woman making the stunning charges and will reveal the shocking details about the pants she saved as evidence!

Some were quick to discount or ignore the story, just as they did when the Enquirer broke the John Edwards story. However, the woman involved has recently spoken out about the 2006 incident (police report), which was reopened in 2009 (interviews and police report), so the Enquirer is vindicated again. (If only they could finally produce that love child of Elvis and Bigfoot.) It goes without saying that there had to be plenty of people in the media and in political circles who were fully aware of all this, and that it is only Nobel Prize Winner Al Gore’s prestige among the left-wing intelligentsia which has kept it a secret for so long. With Republicans, if a scandal like this doesn’t already exist, the MSM can sometimes be relied upon to make one up.

Flash Your Headlights in Protest

7 April 2010

“Women march topless in Portland without incident” The Portland Press Herald (H/T: Weasel Zippers, who would “pay money to the feminazis that I’ve seen to keep their tops on…“)

About two dozen women marched topless from Longfellow Square to Tommy’s Park this afternoon in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity. The women, preceded and followed by several hundred boisterous and mostly male onlookers, many of them carrying cameras, stayed on the sidewalk because they hadn’t obtained a demonstration permit to walk in the street.

I wonder how many of those “boisterous” males had longfellows?

After the marchers reached Tommy’s Park in the Old Port, some turned around and walked back to Longfellow Square, but most stayed and mingled in the park. Some happily posed for pictures. Police said there were no incidents and no arrests – nudity is illegal in Maine only if genitals are displayed.

So if it was already legal, what was the problem?

Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was “enraged” by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on.

Yeah, good luck with that. Was she really not expecting men to show up to see boobs? (Paging Captain Obvious on the white phone!) Is she one of those idiots who are “surprised” by the unemployment figures every month?

However, McDowell said she plans to organize similar demonstrations in the future and said she would be more “aggressive” in discouraging oglers.

Exactly how do you do that when you’re in a public setting? And doesn’t that prove that your whole quest to undermine biology and reality is futile?

Boobs: the protesters or the photographers?

Who Else Wants To Lose Their Job?

Democrats: the best representatives that money can buy.

Crunch time is in just a few hours, and the Democrats are still trying desperately to beg, borrow, and steal those last, magical votes. Of course, nobody wants to be that final vote that pushes it over the top, opening themselves up to extra blame and recrimination. Nobody wants to follow in the footsteps of former Representative Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky (D-PA).

Media Bias Against Hot Redheads

25 January 2010

I generally avoid entertainment and fashion “news”, so I didn’t really pay any attention to stories about someone at The New York Times criticizing the appearance of an actress I’ve never heard of from a show I’ve never watched. However, the latest “twist” to the tale is that the NYT‘s website, as part of their multi-layered dedication to accuracy and facts, decided to (rather obviously and badly) photoshop her “thinner” for their web page. “Well, while not quite on the same scale as photoshopping additional smoke over the Beirut skyline during the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict of 2006, seems like a page out of the same playbook,” commented Not Another New England Sports Blog. You’d think someone would have learned the lesson by now about how easily fauxtography is discovered, and how much it damages your credibility (well, that only applies to media sources that still have any) when it’s discovered… and stop doing it.

Keeping Abreast of Our Allies

3 December 2009

According to Military.com, Swedish female troops want a “combat-tested” bra.

Unlike their male counterparts who are provided with military-issue underwear, Sweden’s 500-odd women conscripts must buy bras themselves since there are no military-issue brassieres, according to the Council of Conscripts, a union-like organisation. “The women have had to buy sports bras instead. But they are not tested for combat situations nor for fire safety, and they are not functional. They unhook too easily,” Council spokeswoman Paulina Rehbinder told AFP.

First, Swedish soldiers have a union?! Second, the “sports bras” I see generally don’t have hooks. Third… ummm… how does one get a job helping the Swedes to assess the combat readiness of their brassieres?

She criticised the military for its lack of gender equality, in a country widely considered a pioneer in the field. “This sends a signal to women. You should be able to come to your workplace and be provided with equipment that works and that is safe,” she said. “There have been women in the Swedish military for more than 30 years but bras have never been provided by the military,” she lamented…

I guess that would take all the fun out of punishing the recruits by making them do jumping jacks or jog in place.

With between 800 and 1,000 women expected to become conscripts next year, the military is now developing a bra that is undergoing testing. “It’s supposed to be ready either later this year or next year,” Rehbinder said. Sweden has allowed women conscripts since 1980. Four to five per cent of Sweden’s armed forces are women.

Presumably this is not an issue for other countries with female soldiers. Maybe they can purchase American-made bra-zookas and help our economy?
