this arse PULLED me out of semi-blogging-retirement


in this day and age, it amazes me THIS sort of shite STILL happens. it's NOT MY fault americans can only picture breasts from  the nubile  victoria's not so damn big a secret STARVING models in their gold and diamond encrusted bikini tops. it's not MY fault america came to a SCREECHING FUCKING HALT when janet jackson's breast was shown on live tv for all of 3 seconds (yes, the world ENDED that day), fuck all that shite. WOMEN HAVE BREASTS TO FEED OUR YOUNG. it's as simple as that. if our lovers want to play with our breasts and we have no objections fine. we enjoy that too. BUT if we want to breastfeed and sometimes that takes place in public, IT'S NOT ONLY PERFECTLY LEGAL IT'S PERFECTLY MORAL AND IT'S PERFECTLY NATURAL. anyone who has ANY issues with that is the one with 'a dirty mind'.


oh sure the fucking bag of wet dicks apologized but he didn't mean it. he did so because he got a lil' flack. i would almost bet my life the fucking bag of wet dicks DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG.


NASCAR Driver Kasey Kahne Slams Mothers Who Breastfeed In Public by James Crugnale 

NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne went on a bizarre,anti-public breastfeeding tirade on his Twitter feedyesterday, later deleting his tweets without apology. The speedway champion tweeted he was grossed out to see a woman breastfeeding in a supermarket, hashtagging #nasty and said he didn’t feel like shopping or eating anymore after seeing it. After a woman told him she disagreed, he called her a “dumb bitch.” His remarks were surprising for a participant in a sport fast becoming popular with female fans.................

here's a portion of what he actually said from abc news
...............“Just walking though supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid. Took second look because obviously I was seeing things. I wasn’t!” he wrote, then graphically described what he saw. “#nasty,” Kahne added, “I don’t feel like shopping anymore or eating.”.........

yes, he called a breastfeeding mother/child NASTY. yes. he did.  


don't know who took the pictures BUT i got 'em from a website entitled HOTTIE OF THE WEEK ?????????????? he looks wicked happy in pic #2. all i'm sayin'...............

Sometimes Women Have Scrotums.

by HEXY 
video nsfw 

So a new advertising campaign has been released for testicular cancer awareness clearly aimed at cis female-attracted men. It features Rhian Sugden, a cis female model, posing sexily for the camera, running her hands over her body, then pulling a scrotum out of her underwear and examining it.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

just got this from narl and wanted to share


It's shocking. Just moments ago, one of the most far-reaching anti-choice bills...putting a woman's life at risk...passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
This bill, H.R.358, would allow hospitals to refuse to provide a woman lifesaving, emergency abortion care...even if she will die without it.
Now, the bill is headed to the U.S. Senate. We must have the resources necessary to fight this bill tooth and nail.
a rose, I am outraged that members of Congress overwhelmingly would pass such an unconscionable, extreme bill. H.R.358 would let women die, telling hospitals that they do not need to provide lifesaving, emergency abortion care.
This is not an isolated vote; it's part of an ongoing agenda that we must fight every day. In fact, the "Let Women Die" bill is the seventh vote on choice taken in the House this year. It is yet another example of just how out of touch anti-choice politicians are with the country's values and priorities.
With only 40 pro-choice votes out of 100 in the Senate, it is critical that we work closely with our pro-choice allies and that we educate mixed-choice lawmakers about this extreme measure.
But we can't do it without your support! We need you and every outraged pro-choice American to help us fight against this attack right now. Please donate today.
Your gift will:
  • Help us target key senators in their home states and in Washington, D.C.
  • Lobby and educate lawmakers to ensure that the Senate doesn't follow the House in using women's lives as a political bargaining chip.
  • Strengthen our ability to gain more media coverage of the War on Women.
  • Help us protect choice at all levels of government.
Thank you for recognizing the urgency of my request by making an emergency online contribution today.
Sincerely,

Nancy Keenan
President, NARAL Pro-Choice America

nyt article on text messaging

and a NEW imessage service (debuting wednesday) that will NOT count as text messages through your phone plan, but over wifi or 3G (so it won't count as a text). it only works between iphones though. other interesting data on text message figures in the article.


Free Texts Pose Threat to Carriers

By 
........................On Wednesday, Apple plans to introduce a new service called iMessage, which could quickly become the biggest fish in this pond. The service lets iPhone owners send messages with text, photos and video to other iPhone owners over a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection. The service, part of an update to Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, will automatically handle messages sent between iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users who have upgraded to the latest software.
“There’s a huge amount at stake here,” said Craig Moffett, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein, who covers the telecommunications industry. “They are undermining the core business model for an industry that makes most of its money from services that are high priced and low bandwidth, like texting.”...............

Michele Bachmann's HPV vaccine remarks continue to draw criticism


By

Ryan Jaslow















Dr. Arthur Caplan, director of the University of Pennsylvania Bioethics Center, offered Bachmann $10,000 if she could produce solid evidence of a case in which a "vaccine victim" developed a mental disability following an HPV shot, the Associated Press reported. If he wins the wager, he said, she should donate the money to a pro-vaccine group. If she wins, he said, he'd donate the money to a charity of her choice.
.........
Bachmann's camp did not respond to the request, the AP said.
Another bioethics professor, Dr. Stephen Miles of the University of Minnesota, offered his own wager, saying  he'd give $1,000 if the medical records from the woman in Bachmann's story could be released and reviewed by a doctor, the Star Tribune reported.
"These types of messages in this climate have the capacity to do enormous public health harm," Miles told the Star Trib. "The woman, assuming she exists, put this claim into the public domain and it's an extremely serious claim and it deserves to be analyzed.".................

Pat Robertson forgets: Marriage is about sacrifice, too


By Matthew Lee Anderson

The state of marriage in America has become a perpetual source of handwringing for conservative pundits, and few pundits have proved more adept at the skill than Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcast Network and long time host of the 700 Club.
Yet with his latest offense, Robertson may have given evangelicals and Americans reason to hope that our belief in marriage’s permanence and sacredness is not dead yet.
As is by now well known, Robertson suggested on his show that a husband could divorce his wife and “start all over again” if she had Alzheimers. Robertson, in fairness, walked back an inch from his remarks, suggesting that they needed to get a professional ethicist to answer the question while underscoring his empathy for person in that situation and wrestling with the difficulty of the problem............

Texas cut fire department funding by 75 percent this year | Raw Replay

Texas cut fire department funding by 75 percent this year | Raw Replay
By David Edwards\



Under Gov. Rick Perry (R) this year, Texas slashed state funding for the volunteer fire departments that protect most of the state from wildfires like the ones that have recently destroyed more than 700 homes.

Volunteer departments that were already facing financial strain were slated to have their funding cut from $30 million to $7 million, according to KVUE.

The majority of Texas is protected by volunteer fire departments. There are 879 volunteer fire departments in Texas and only 114 paid fire departments. Another 187 departments are a combination of volunteer and paid...........

2) no one and i mean NO ONE should ever watch TLC ever ever ever again
3) anyone who watches toddlers and tiaras should be sentenced to mandatory psychological therapy

LONGTIME REPUBLICAN LEAVES AUTHORITARIAN REICHWING ‘CULT’d by Richard Metzger 





Michael Lofgren is a Republican staffer, who was, until recently, serving the Senate Finance Committee. Lofgren has worked on Capitol Hill for nearly three decades. He explains why he left his job in a recent column for TruthOut. The Republican “11th Commandment”Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican—is repeatedly violated in this barn-burner.
Some choice excerpts here, but the whole thing is a must read. His main target is the Republican Party, of course, but the Democrats are not spared, either:
But both parties are not rotten in quite the same way. The Democrats have their share of machine politicians, careerists, corporate bagmen, egomaniacs and kooks. Nothing, however, quite matches the modern GOP.
To those millions of Americans who have finally begun paying attention to politics and watched with exasperation the tragicomedy of the debt ceiling extension, it may have come as a shock that the Republican Party is so full of lunatics. To be sure, the party, like any political party on earth, has always had its share of crackpots, like Robert K. Dornan or William E. Dannemeyer. But the crackpot outliers of two decades ago have become the vital center today: Steve King, Michele Bachmann (now a leading presidential candidate as well), Paul Broun, Patrick McHenry, Virginia Foxx, Louie Gohmert, Allen West. The Congressional directory now reads like a casebook of lunacy..............

OLBERMANN: AZ COUNTRY GOP CHAIR IS A ‘HUMAN-SHAPED PILE OF FECES’  Richard Metzger 




Pima County, AZ Republican Chairman Pro Tem,  Mike Shaw, is the asshole who made the tacky decision to raffle off a Glock handgun for a local GOP fundraiser. Of course, Jared Loughner used a Glock during the tragic shooting spree there in January that killed six people and injured 13 others, including Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords. Was there NOTHING ELSE they could have raffled off in Gifford’s own district? A TV? A microwave oven? A box set of Newt and Callista Gingrich DVDs? NOTHING???.........

Right-wing commentator: Poor people voting is ‘un-American’


By Muriel Kane


Many conservatives appear to think badly of poor people, but Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center takes it a step further. According to the title of his latest article for American Thinker, he believes that "registering the poor to vote is un-American."
"Why are left-wing activist groups so keen on registering the poor to vote?" Vadum asks. "Because they know the poor can be counted on to vote themselves more benefits by electing redistributionist politicians. Welfare recipients are particularly open to demagoguery and bribery."
"Registering them to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals," he continues. "It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country-- which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote. ... Encouraging those who burden society to participate in elections isn't about helping the poor. It's about helping the poor to help themselves to others' money."..................

Here are Six Stories You Must Read About Rick Perry

By Tim Murphy

read it, it's NOT that long. there is a part in there about cameron todd willingham. i posted about him before here and and here. he most likely was innocent BUT perry flipped the switch on 'em and he fried. 

i have never understood, and will never understand the people who claim to love life so very much (read: anti-choice) they LOVE LOVE LOVE a fetus, but once an actual human child is born, they could give a flying fuck.

any way, i digress. read the article at the link above please

it's UNFATHOMABLE to me, we do NOT care for our ill

yesterday, i ran into a friend of mind from texas

(and his lovely wife as well. although she is NOT from texas). we happened to talk about the texas school system/board and their habit of changing or omitting certain history from textbooks (we also talked about the carolinas and their very same habit. one GOOD thing texas does that connecticut does NOT do is concentrate a great deal of time on texas history itself. i figure since all of new england plays such a great part in american history, maybe that's why we never got an intense course on connecticut history itelf. who knows though)

at any rate, i just came across this:


Texas State Board of Education Declares War on The Declaration of Independence


MARK KARLIN, EDITOR OF BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT
The Texas State Board of Education declares war on the Declaration of Independence.
That's one perspective on the Lone Star State board that approves educational textbooks in Texas. After all, when you delete Thomas Jefferson - author of the Declaration of Independence - from the state curriculum, something un-American is definitely afoot.
According to a Washington Post column on faith, the board was also rejecting Jefferson's - and the Constitution's - guarantee of a separation of church and state, noting the:.................
