Rush Limbaugh: Media exaggerates Japan disaster
By Agence France-Presse
WASHINGTON – Right-wing US radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his show Wednesday that the media is overplaying the nuclear crisis in Japan after last week's 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami.
"We have all these people on the media who we've never heard of, never heard from ever before, making calls to evacuate," Limbaugh said on his show on Premiere Radio Networks.
He singled out a European Union organization for criticism, saying it was exaggerating the situation in Japan, where Friday's quake and tsunami have left thousands dead or missing, and touched off a nuclear crisis.
"Something called the EU energy agent is saying all this is uncontrollable.............

i've already posted a couple of times on this. here's yet another

 i have many things to say about rape, sexual assault or whatever words are used to describe that horrid act of power and violence. i have much knowledge about it as well. 

the ONLY thing i have to say here is; this was an ELEVEN YEAR OLD girl. there is NO makeup she could have on her face, there is NO 'slutty' clothing she could have on, there is NOTHING she could say or do that would place the blame for HER GANG RAPE BACK ON HER (or her parents). a group of mostly men and a couple of minors (allegedly as it has not yet been proven in a court of law) gang raped an 11 year old girl. THEY did it. THEY committed a heinous act and a crime. THEY should be punished.

instead it is the girl that is blamed and punished and made to leave school and the town she lives in. many ADULTS are blaming the girl and/or her parents. they have nothing to say about the 18 or 20 something men and boys who (allegedly) committed the rape. what kind of culture are we living in? what kind of people are these? 

and now this fucking piece of steamin' shite chimes in:

Republican lawmaker blames 11-year-old victim of alleged gang rape
By David Edwards

Elected officials should know better than to blame the victim of a sex crime.
While it's a common tactic of abusers, it's something no one expected of Republican Florida state Rep. Kathleen Passidomo.
During debate over a bill that would legislate a dress code for Florida students, Passidomo blamed the alleged gang raping of an 11-year-old in Cleveland, Texas on the way the young girl was dressed.
"There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gangraped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute," Passidomo declared.
"And her parents let her attend school like that. And I think it’s incumbent upon us to create some areas where students can be safe in school and show up in proper attire so what happened in Texas doesn’t happen to our students," she added.
Broward/Palm Beach New Times' Brandon Thorp was shocked.
"Whoa!" he wrote. "As a genus, politicians aren't the brightest wicks in the candelabra, but they usually possess sufficient self-awareness to shield the public from the horrorshows of their minds. Blaming the rape of an 11-year-old girl on her parents' sense of fashion -- and to do so out loud -- smacks of rank amateurism."...........


happy st patrick's day

AT&T to cap users’ Internet access, impose fees for too much information

By Stephen C. Webster

Telecommunications giant AT&T said this week that it will join Comcast and other providers in a controversial business model that limits the amount of information subscribers can access, and imposes penalties for overages.
The move will see AT&T broadband users forced into a tiered Internet that would limit accounts to a paltry 150 gigabytes a month. Users who download too much information on AT&T's broadband network will be subject to an additional $10 fee for every 50 gigabytes. Fees on the first three overages will be waived, according to DSLReports.com....................

WI Repub lives outside district with mistress, says wife
By David Ferguson

Protesters who marched at the home of Wisconsin state senator Randy Hopper (R-Fond du Lac) were met with something of a surprise on Saturday. Mrs. Hopper appeared at the door and informed them that Sen. Hopper was no longer in residence at this address, but now lives in Madison, WI with his 25-year-old mistress.
Blogging Blue reports that the conservative Republican's much-younger new flame is currently employed as a lobbyist for right-wing advocacy group Persuasion Partners, Inc., but was previously a state senate staffer who worked on the Senate Economic Development Committee alongside Mr. Hopper. Her bio has been scrubbed from the Persuasion Partners' website, but a screen-grab is available here...........

Couple Denied Adoption Because They're Vegetarian

Adopting a child that's in need of a home is one of the most selfless and loving decisions a person can make -- but in Greece, having a big heart means nothing if you don't eat meat. A vegetarian couple from the island of Crete recently had their adoption application rejected on the grounds that they might impose their diet on their adoptive child, because they say that a child's upbringing must include eating meat. There's just one problem though: that's not true at all.................

Bachmann mistakes New Hampshire for Massachusetts at campaign event
By David Ferguson

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) made another U.S. history-related gaffe at a campaign event on Saturday. Addressing a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire, the Congresswoman said, "What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty. You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord."
The shot heard around the world and the battles of Lexington and Concord took place in Massachusetts in 1775................

this is ridiculous

there is absolutely NO reason for this man to resign over THESE remarks. he didn't say anything wrong (sort of like saying tea party members are racists. it's like saying the ocean is vast. although what mr crowley said is FAR LESS 'controversial'). really,we are treating bradley manning WHO HAS NOT BEEN FOUND GUILTY OF ANYFUCKINGTHING like we were all in midnight express. (it's not a question of mr manning's guilt or innocence. it's a question of us being AMERICAN and fair and not a nation that tortures)

 “The exercise of power in today’s challenging times and relentless media environment must be . . . consistent with our laws and values.” — P.J. Crowley

State Dept. spokesman quits over remarks
 By Farah Stockman
WASHINGTON — State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned yesterday after his disparaging remarks about the Pentagon, made to a small seminar at MIT on the power of blogging, tweeting, and Facebook, appeared in blog postings by members of the audience. 
Crowley, a retired colonel who served 26 years in the Air Force, called the Pentagon’s treatment of an Army private accused of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks “ridiculous’’ and “counterproductive.’’ Private First Class Bradley Manning is being held in solitary confinement in a military jail for 23 hours a day, and is stripped each night and given a suicide-proof smock to wear to bed.
The remarks, which Crowley later described as his personal opinion, were blogged by BBC reporter and Nieman fellow Philippa Thomas. The next day, CBS’s Political Hotsheet blogged about her report. So did Foreign Policy Magazine and Salon. On Friday, President Obama was asked about them at a White House press conference............
