Below is yet another story of the TSA blindly following procedure without an ounce of common sense. The TSA stole a kid’s Pirates of the Caribbean plastic sword that he purchased as Disney World. I suppose that the TSA agents were concerned that the nine year old boy would commandeer the plane with the plastic sword.
Yeah, and these are the people that want to make your health care decisions.

A lesson to be found here somehow.
About 100 dolphins and whales get stranded each year in the southeastern United States. Most die quickly or end up in aquariums. Only a handful get a second crack at freedom, and it's always a risk.
Dunham's chance came Tuesday morning, when proud and excited handlers released him off the Dunedin Causeway, carrying a radio collar so they could follow him in boats and monitor his progress.
He seemed a little stiff after a long van ride the night before, but he quickly picked up the pace and headed south. Dunham's handlers beamed as the dolphin returned to nature.
A few hours later, nature would break their hearts.

Here is a funny, but sad, story of Japanese men who fall in love with anime characters. It seems that a sizable portion of men in Japan are unable to find real women who are attracted to them. As such, they turn to inanimate objects in an attempt to find love.
As women are gaining more independence from men, they are no longer forced to “settle” for the type of guys described in this article. So you have 80% of the women attracted to 20% of the most desirable men. And while the top guys enjoy that situation, many men are starting to fall through the mating selection cracks. These men are simply giving up on women. And for a society, that tends to create various strange and sometimes violent pathologies.
So while it is easy to make fun of such guys, it is actually a sad situation. Such men are lonely and have lost hope of finding real women who will love them. Some turn to 2D love. And other guys (such as the Virginia Tech shooter) turn violent.

Part of the problem with government health care is the emphasis it places on “prevention.” And while prevention might be fine in theory, in reality is just becomes money spent of PSA ads lecturing us about our diet. I think most people would rather to forego the lectures and have the money be spent of real research to finding cures.
No doubt that Americans are obese. But most people are smart enough to know why they are obese – they eat too much food. There is no need to waste taxpayer dollars to preach to these people.

Below is an interesting interview from an SVP at Elle, who claims that women are simply better managers than men are.
Below is a picture of Carol. After I read the interview I could guess what she would look like. I am sure she is a great manager that follows all the proper procedures and guidelines.

Congratulations to Miss Aya Ali al-Mulla for winning the 2009 Saudi Miss Moral Beauty contest.
Unlike American beauty contests, the Saudi women are judged on their moral qualities, not the size of their bust or shape of their figure. Islam is so twisted!
Hopefully we will win defeat the Taliban so that their women can skank around on the stage and by judged by our gay men. God Bless America!

While Obama was shedding tears over his African-American brother being arrested for disorderly conduct, an audio was released of the Boise police sodomizing a handcuffed man with a taser. This incident did not get much media attention as both the police officer and the suspect are White.
While I am not a fan of Professor Gates, he does have point that the police can engage in brutal and illegal behavior. The ubiquitous nature of video and audio devices has captured much police abuse that was previously unknown to the general public. Most people tend to think police act like what they see on TV.
For years, the unofficial police standard operating procedure was to beat up any suspect that was uncooperative. The suspect would then be charged with disorderly conduct. And without video or audio evidence, a jury would almost always believe a police officer over a “criminal.” As such, this sort of behavior by the police was not exactly unusual.

Henry Louis Gates, a noted Black Studies scholar at Harvard, was arrested for disorderly conduct. It seems that Gates lost the keys to his house and was attempting to pry the front door open. A concerned neighbor called the police thinking that it may be a burglary.
When the police officers arrived and asked to see Gates’ id, he started to yell and act belligerent. According to the police report Gates accused the police officers of being racist. When the police officer asked Gates to step outside to calm the situation, the noted Harvard scholar stated, “Ya, I’ll speak to your mama outside.”
Gates was arrested (and later released). Obama used this incident as an example of how police are racist. Gates is now threatening to sue the police department.
A copy of the police report:

A box elder tree grows from a soil made of ash and pulp from science textbooks in the Detroit Public Schools' Roosevelt Warehouse. A man's body was discovered in a frozen lift shaft here. It is assumed he had been there for some months as his face had decomposed.

It seems another famous athlete has been accused of sexual assault. In this case Andrea McNulty is suing Ben Roethlisberger for an alleged sexual assault that happened a year ago. I believe that this will be a hard case for Andrea to win as there seems to be a lack of evidence. She did not report the crime a year ago, and she is now proceeding with a civil action in an attempt to win a settlement.
While true rape is a serious matter, professional athletes are frequently targets of women who wish to hit the jackpot monetarily.

As a kid who grew up during the Space Age, it is hard to explain the disappointment many of us feel over the lack of progress in space exploration. I remember as a kid reading in my World Book Encyclopedia how we would have Moon colonies by the 1980s. We thought that by the year 2000 most people would be able to travel to the Moon and maybe Mars.
Since that time, NASA has lost the “right stuff.” We have been reduced to flying pointless near Earth space shuttle missions. Within a few years the Space Shuttle will be grounded and we will be unable to fly in space.
The clip below illustrates the scientific de-evolution we have experienced since the 1970s. The fact that any media personality could serious question if the Earth is a globe is embarrassing to those of us who knew a different America.

It seems that the US Government is funding the development of killer robots that can re-fuel themselves by eating bio-mass (including corpses). These robots are code named EATR (Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot. )
I know that our budget is tight, but we must find a way to continue funding these flesh eating robots. In the 1950s we ceased research on the Cobalt bomb (a theoretical device that could destroy all life on Earth). Hopefully, the US government will not go wobbly and cease such funding on man eating robots. Without such robots, we could lose our freedoms.

Frank Hatley has languished in a South Georgia jail for more than a year.The reason? He failed to reimburse the state for all the public assistance his “son” received over the past two decades.The problem? Hatley is not the biological father -- and a special assistant state attorney general and a judge knew it but jailed Hatley anyway.
Not sure what else to say about this. The entire judicial system is hopelessly corrupt. Judges that knowingly send innocent men to jail should be impeached and face criminal charges. DNA testing should be mandatory for all children.

Al Gore has recently advocated that we need “Global Governance” to combat climate change (formally known as global warming.) People such as Al Gore seem to think that centralized government control is the key to be friendly to the environment. But what does history tell us? Does centralized government control help the environment?
One of the greatest man-made ecological disasters was caused under the central planning of the Soviet government. The Aral Sea was once the fourth largest inland saline body of water. The Arial Sea was equivalent to one of the United States great lakes. For generations that lake was used for fishing and recreation.
In the 1940s the Soviets decided to build cannels in a misguided attempt to improve agriculture. Many Soviet scientists by the 1960s understood that the government policies were killing the Aral Sea. However, it was politically dangerous to speak out. The official Soviet government response to the dying of the Aral Sea was that it was nature’s fault.
The Soviets also used the Sea as a dumping ground for biological and chemical weapons.
The Aral Sea is now pretty much gone. Over 80% of the Sea has disappeared. All the fish are now dead. What was once a lush area has been reduced to a barren wasteland. Rusting fishing ships serve as monuments to government planning.
I can only imagine what will be the result if we allow a central government to manage “climate change.”

One of the things I hate is a “zero tolerance” policy that is found in many schools. While such a policy may sound good in theory, it typically results in zero intelligence. One of the reason we hire school administrators is to exercise judgment concerning issues.
In the article below, a high school softball coach was fired based on a “zero tolerance” policy. The coach was good with the kids and never did anything inappropriate. However, at the end of the year he had a barbeque at his house. He invited the team and their parents. While he served no beer, it seems that some of the parents brought some beer to the party. No beer was served to any of the kids. And, yet, because this was considered an official school event, the coach was fired because alcohol was at the event.

Below is a link to an ABC investigative report concerning your Social Security Administration. It seems that the government sent 700 “executives” to a posh hotel in Arizona for stress relief. This is your tax money at work.
While the private sector is experiencing layoffs, cost reductions, bankruptcies – the government employees are dancing to Disco Inferno courtesy of your tax dollars.

I saw the other day that we lost some more men in Afghanistan. This is an important war to defend our country from communism. Or terrorism. Or whatever. Didn’t the Soviets fight in Afghanistan a few years ago? The wars for freedom get confusing.
Fred Reed had an interesting article concerning war.
And of course “your country” doesn’t tell you anything at all. Countries are abstractions. Men tell you to go, and for their own purposes: Dick Cheney or George Bush, Nixon or Nitze, or the men who run the petroleum industry, or people in the Israeli lobby, or men in the military companies who want contracts, or officers who want to give war a try.
Why are these people “my country”? And why isn’t Joan Baez my country instead of David Petraeus? I will choose who is my country, thank you. Ledbelly, Benny Goodman, Carl Perkins and Miss Emily Anne will come before Lemay, McNamara, Lyndon Johnson, and Obama. Long before.

It seems that Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) has created a pamphlet aimed to teach school children how to masturbate and explore new sexual positions. This just proves that with socialized medicine there is plenty of surplus money to spend on important health issues such as the lack of variety of sexual positions amongst English school children.

Michael Jackson doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, is reportedly under investigation for improperly administrating drugs to MJ which may have caused his death. It seems that Dr. Conrad Murray medical expertise is questionable based on his actions.
Dr. Conrad Murray may be a qualified doctor. Or he might be the result of pressure for a medical school to meet diversity goals. As Thomas Sowell has noted (Sowell is African American), one of the problems with affirmative action (aka diversity goals) is that it leads to questions if the person is actually qualified to do the job.
One of the fundamental questions that face our society is if we should judge people based on their merit or based on their race or sex. If we judge strictly based on merit, we will not have equal outcomes. If we give positions based on hidden quotas, we increase tribalism and resentment.
This was an issue in California as universities were activity excluding Asians based on their race.
It is interesting that affirmative action and “diversity goals” seems to only be tolerated in one direction. For example, NBA teams are under no political pressure to make their teams more diverse by adding White players. In fact, the Indian Pacers are under criticism (see link below) because 50% of their team is White. As 90% of the NBA is Black, a team that is 50% White is looked at suspiciously.

It seems that Joe Stein wrote an article and created a video about cooking his wife’s placenta. It seems that these kooks seem to think that eating a placenta provides health benefits. They assume this because animals eat their placenta. Of course, animals also eat shit and each other animals, so I am not sure what that really proves.
The article and video can be found at this link:

The news of the day is the scandal of Obama supposedly looking at the butt of a 17 year old girl at the G8 summit. The story has been prominently featured on the DrudegReport.com. Conservatives are feigning outrage at this incident. Of course, any straight man does look at attractive women. Any guy that suggests otherwise is either lying or he is gay. (Of course, Matt Drudge is a homosexual. So maybe he is not being hypocritical.)
For you forensic experts, here is the actual video of the incident. In real time it does not looks so bad.
As a society we are schizophrenic concerning underage girls and sex. We pretend to act SHOCKED and OUTRAGED when an older man looks at a 16 or 17 year old girl. And then we have female cheerleading coaches creating routines such as demonstrated in the following video.

It is amazing how gender roles have changed in the movies and television over the past 30 years. A prime example of the change can be found in Battlestar Galactica. Battlestar Galactica was a 1970s science fiction series that was updated in 2003. In the original series, one of the main characters was a brash, cigar smoking, womanizer known as Starbuck. In the modern version of Battlestar Galactica, the Starbuck character has morphed into a woman.
The actor that played the original Starbuck wrote an interesting essay concerning how feminist ideology has changed Hollywood.

Glenn Sacks has been trying to raise awareness concerning the modern ads that always portray the man or the father as a stupid doofus that is the butt of all the jokes. If you go to his web site you can see examples of current ads that are derogatory toward men.
However, before Political Correctness, advertisers were able to also poke fun of women. The following old ads are hilarious.
Below is an ad targeting over weight women:
And my personal favorite coffee ad:

On the eve of Michael Jackson’s gala funeral, congressman Peter King called Michael a 'Low-Life' Michael Jackson and a ‘Pedophile'
I am not sure if Michael was a pedophile in the classic sense. I doubt that he had sex with boys. It was more that Michael regressed into thinking he was a sort of Peter Pan character than never got old. So in his mind he was forever 10 years old engaging in sleepovers and pillow fights.
Like his entire life, Michael’s memorial service looks to be an over-the-top production of monumental excess and silliness.

The recent murder of Steve McNair by a young woman illustrates the dangers all professional athletes face. Lots of psycho women like to stalk rich and famous athletes.
And one of the most famous American athletes is that of Joey (Jaws) Chestnut. Joey recently won the National Hotdog eating contest by downing an amazing 68 hotdogs in 10 minutes. Six-time titleholder Takeru (Tsunami) Kobayashi, came in second with 64 hotdogs eaten. I think all patriotic Americans were proud to see an American fend off the Japanese threat.
I have recently been in hot dog eating training. And I promise if I win, I will be careful to avoid the celebrity stalkers that can be so dangerous.

It seems that NY Times columnist Maureen Dowd has freaked out because Sarah Palin has resigned. Maureen Dowd was the author of the book, “Are Men really Necessary?” Pretty much Dowd has spent her life complaining that she could never catch a man because men are intimidated by her success and intelligence. Yeah, that must be the reason Maureen.
The fact that Palin was successful and powerful and yet was still able to marry and have a large family sends poor Maureen Dowd into a rage. Sarah Palin pretty much invalidates Dowd’s entire thesis.
I don’t blame Palin for getting out of politics. As the mainstream media is too frightened to criticize Obama, she bore the brunt of their jokes. Now that she is gone, I am not sure who they are going to target.

I saw the John Dillinger movie, Public Enemies, this afternoon. The reviews looked great. And I usually love gangster movies. So my expectations were high. Unfortunately, I found the dialog and the acting to be rather stilted. I actually burst out laughing during scenes that were meant to tug at the heartstrings. Of course, it could just mean that I am a heartless bastard.
As the movie was rather dull, I rememberd the old John Dillinger urban myth that he had a giant penis that was later sent to the Smithsonian Institute. That myth originated back in the 1930s with this newspaper photo of the corpse of Dillinger.
The urban myth was actually more interesting than the movie.

Older women have sex with younger boys seems to be a recent trend. However, what makes the following story unusual is that Richael Michels, 45, had sex with a sixteen year old boy that was dating her daughter. But what makes the story really weird is that she lured the boy into the furry lifestyle.
It seems that Furries are people who like to dress up as animals. Such people refer to it as the Furry Lifestyle. The Furries dress up and meet other Furries for parties and conventions. Mostly it is all good fun. However, there is a subculture within the Furry community that likes to have Furry sex. Furry sex is when people dressed up as animals have sex.
Rumor has it that Massachusetts will be the first state to offer Furry partner health benefits.

There was some controversy at the 2009 Black Entertainment TV (BET) awards. The show was dedicated to Michael Jackson, so it attracted much publicity.
The controversy started when rapper Lil’ Wayne sang his song Every Girl. While performing this song, they had a bunch of school age girls up on stage dancing to the song. Some people felt the lyrics were inappropriate for little girls. Others thought he was just “keeping in real."
I personally had no problem with the show. I would like to see such shows get more exposure.
