The New World Order - an update


Monday, February 25, 2013

Bring on the DRAFT!!!

I'm usually the guy who says women have NO business in the military.  I've said it at least a million times.  I'm not a proponent of a small number of women living around or working in ANY place where they are outnumbered 9.5 to 1. 

But when I say that women shouldn't be in the military, I say it from two other stand points as well.

We currently do NOT get the best and brightest women for the military.   Far from it in fact.

And we don't make allowances on the FRONT END for women in our military.  They are and have been tolerated, at best.  Were we to add them en masse, and set the situation so that they could succeed in it, learn from it, and contribute to our overall welfare, then I'd be ALL for it.

My dream situation is seeing the first necessary step.

Tennnnnn-hut, ladies! The next time Uncle Sam comes calling, he's probably going to want you, too.

The Obama administration's recent decision to lift the ban on women in combat has opened the door for a change in the law that currently compels only men between age 18 and 25 to register for a military draft, according to legal experts and military historians.
Never before has the country drafted women into military service, and neither the administration nor Congress is in a hurry to make them register for a future call-up. But, legally, they may have no other choice.
It is constitutional to register only men for a draft, the Supreme Court ruled more than three decades ago, because the reason for registration is to create a pool of potential combat troops should a national emergency demand a rapid increase in the size of the military. Women were excluded from serving in battlefield jobs, so there was no reason to register them for possible conscription into the armed forces, the court held.
IF we are going to register the 18 y/o boys, then you've got to register the girls too.  And yes I indeed am old enough to say boys / girls of someone who was not yet 18 until today!  Now, here, as before, is what we SHOULD do.

Everyone in the country, who is eligible to vote should be required to do at least 2 years of Federal Service, somewhere between 18 and 28, unless you are in Med School, then 34 is tops.  I do NOT mean the military, we should set up some sort of Peace Corps for inside the country.  There are tons of jobs missing warm bodies in the country right now.  And some jobs that shouldn't take an adult with a F/T salary with benefits either!

I'll go so far as to say that jobs that are tougher than others might count more than one days credit, for just one days work.  But those positions must be worked into, or that applicant should be able to do the job from day one.  That way some people get training, but others with training get to use it.

My reasoning has always been we SHOULD all do something for the country.  Anyone who DOES some kind of work generally appreciates and wants to take care of that 'thing' they were a part of and last, I always was of the opinion that if two cultures as diverse as the Soviet Union and Israel can make such a system work, certainly WE can also.  And maybe, just maybe we can turn this shit wagon around and make something of America's youth again!

Did You Know?

The Origin of Our Strange Customs:

Why do mens clothes have buttons on the right while women's
clothes have buttons on the left?

When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn
primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is
easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left.
Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put
the buttons on the maid's right! And that's where women's buttons
have remained since.

Why do ships and aircraft use 'mayday' as their call for help?

This comes from the French word m'aidez -meaning 'help me' --
and is pronounced, approximately, 'mayday.'

Why are zero scores in tennis called 'love'?

In France , where tennis became popular, the round zero on the
scoreboard looked like an egg and was called 'l'oeuf,' which is French
for 'the egg.' When tennis was introduced in the US , Americans
(mis)pronounced it 'love.'

Why do X's at the end of a letter signify kisses?

In the Middle Ages, when many people were unable to read or write,
documents were often signed using an X. Kissing the X represented
an oath to fulfill obligations specified in the document. The X and the
kiss eventually became synonymous.

Why is shifting responsibility to someone else called
'passing the buck'?

A: In card games, it was once customary to pass an item, called a buck,
from player to player to indicate whose turn it was to deal. If a player
did not wish to assume the responsibility of dealing, he would
'pass the buck' to the next player.

Why do people clink their glasses before drinking a toast?

It used to be common for someone to try to kill an enemy by offering him 
poisoned drink.
To prove to a guest that a drink was safe, it became customary for a
guest to pour a small amount of his drink into the glass of the host.
Both men would drink it simultaneously. When a guest trusted his host,
he would only touch or clink the host's glass with his own.

Why are people in the public eye said to be 'in the limelight'?

Invented in 1825, limelight was used in lighthouses and theaters by burning
a cylinder of lime which produced a brilliant light. In the theatre,
a performer 'in the limelight' was the center of attention.

Why is someone who is feeling great 'on cloud nine'?

Types of clouds are numbered according to the altitudes they attain, with
nine being the highest cloud. If someone is said to be on cloud nine,
that person is floating well above worldly cares.

In golf, where did the term 'Caddie' come from?

When Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl, Louis,
King of France , learned that she loved the Scots game 'golf.'
He had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment.
To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she
played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her.
Mary liked this a lot and when returned to Scotland (not a very good idea
in the long run), she took the practice with her. In French,
the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it
into ‘caddie.’

Why are many coin collection jar banks shaped like pigs?

Long ago, dishes and cookware in Europe were made of dense orange
clay called 'pygg'. When people saved coins in jars made of this clay,
the jars became known as 'pygg banks.' When an English potter
misunderstood the word, he made a container that resembled a pig.
And it caught on.

The Police Loophole

A week, or so, ago I saw an article saying 5, or so, Arms Manufacturers had decided to stop selling their products to governments that are curtailing their citizens gun rights.  They've openly said that any state, county, city, or municipalities who are holding back on citizens gun rights, will not be allowed to buy any of those same items from those companies.  Two days ago the list was at about 25.  Today it's over 30.
Here's their exact statement to the gub'ments.
There are some states, counties, cities, and municipalities in our great nation that fail to allow their citizens to fully exercise their right to keep and bear arms with restrictions such as magazine capacity or types of firearms that are widely available to citizens of other states, counties, cities, and municipalities. However, these government entities do not place these restrictions upon their own employees, such as police officers. It is important to note that we are against gun control; we are not against any particular government agency or individuals. 
Here's their site.  The Police Loophole .

If I was going to be buying "X" gun or accessory right now, and there were two companies selling it, I'd buy from one of these places and pay more for it because of the companies doing the right thing.

About our ruling Overclass

By my own admittance here previously, I am at best a poor student in the classical sense of the word.  I learn more from watching three hours of  Discovery, or NatGeo, or Science, et al, than I would in several semesters of college.  My mind does not process or 'store' information that I 'study' on purpose.

Hell, I wish it did, how much easier would life have been!?

My normal school 'ability' was at odds with the world in which I grew up.  I think if I'd been born 50 or 100 years ago, given the same natural intelligence, I could have done MUCH better.  But there were no 'frontiers' either physical or in business, that could be overcome in the late 20th Century just by my smarts and hard work.  Oh there were some I guess, but several times I ran up to the same wall, education, with no way to scale it AND live indoors, eat regularly and feed my kids.  Ultimately I did go back to school, but I only got a Certificate in Electronics.  A field I'd been working in for 10 years.  And all the classes I took, I'd already passed in HS and then again in the Navy.

So I didn't really 'learn' anything in college then.   

But that Cert was what I based the rest of my working career around.  But just how stupid a system is that?  That in order for me to get "X" job, I had to go to, what I think of as, the 'right' school.  But here's the crux of my posting, just WhoTF makes those decisions?  Who decides just what The Right Stuff is?  And why is it that the system is SO broken now?  Well, here's one opinion, and it's one I not only agree with, it's exactly what I've been screaming for about 40 years.

The Chinese imperial bureaucracy was immensely powerful.  Entrance was theoretically open to anyone, from any walk of society--as long as they could pass a very tough examination.  The number of passes was tightly restricted to keep the bureaucracy at optimal size.

Passing the tests and becoming a "scholar official" was a ticket to a very good, very secure life.  And there is something to like about a system like this . . . especially if you happen to be good at exams.   Of course, once you gave the imperial bureaucracy a lot of power, and made entrance into said bureaucracy conditional on passing a tough exam, what you have is . . . a country run by people who think that being good at exams is the most important thing on earth.  Sound familiar? 

I was damned near cheering when I finished reading the entire article.  I just wish the hell more people 'got'  this.  I think there are plenty of us who could do jobs that it 'requires' a degree to get.  But I mostly say that because of two jobs I once held.

Before I went in the Navy, I was a Dominos Pizza Manager.  I had a store near a college campus and all my employees were undergrads or grad students, from NCSU, St. Augustine's U, and Shaw U.  After I got out of the Navy, jobs were tight (1982 SUCKED) and I wound up back there.  But I was only 'allowed' to become a Asst Mngr, because the new franchisee, and most of them were like this then, had decided that you couldn't run a Dominos unless you had a degree.  It didn't matter what degree, but it was a requirement.

Well, just what could have changed about making and delivering pizzas over that 6 years to require a degree to run that SAME store I'd run?  The attitudes of those in charge is what changed, do YOU care what kind of schooling your pizza guy has?.

Later I stumbled into a job just before the company changed the minimum req to having a degree.  The company leased eqpt and we did field service and training in poultry hatcheries.  Again it didn't matter what kind of degree, but they preferred an animal science degree of some sort.  I stayed there 5 years, in that time I had to train about 12 or 14 degreed people, some with masters Degrees.  I never had one complaint from any of my people about how they were trained.  Actually, when I left there I was the only trainer to ever get to that level.

Over the years there, I got tons of good words about my work from my customers to my bosses.  My bosses were always happy with what I did.  The only reason I ever left there, is that I was fired, because my NEW boss didn't think I had the right 'image' for the clientele.  As with the other job, someone decided that a clientele I knew and who knew me, would be better served by someone other than me, based on some arbitrary 'IT' that the customers had never asked for. 

I think things have only gotten worse in that ensuing 30 years since the 80's.

I see ads for jobs all the time now that call for college degrees, and for the life of me I simply can't see WHY it's a requirement.  Oh well, I quit expounding now and you can go read the article.  I think it hit a number of great points.  I just wish I cold win one of those big fat Power Ball pots.

I'd start a business or two and I wouldn't hire even one person with a degree.  If for no other reason, than to prove that it CAN be done.  This country was built by people without college degrees, what suddenly has changed to create a need for all these degrees?

Another War?

 History has shown us that the American people are always the last ones to find out that they're at war or under attack. And even then they don't always get it. We were still sending American steel to Japan while their planes, made with our steel, were attacking Pearl Harbor. It took about twenty years for us to realize we were involved in a religious war with radical Mooselambs.

Now, the mental midgets who run this country have discovered that we're being attacked by the ChiComs. (actually it was a private company that made the discovery ) No, not with troops, ships, missiles, or planes. They're a lot smarter than that. They're kicking our ass with, computers. They have hacked into, and gained access to, "every single system we have ", including civilian and top-secret military systems! Of course, we'd like to assume that the nitwits who rule us were aware of this. But with our elected clowns, you never know.

This private company not only tracked the cyber attacks to a specific building in China, but to the specific unit of the ChiCom army that runs it! (are ya paying attention CIA? ) That's right. We are under attack from the ChiCom army.

Now if i were running this country, my first official act, after designing my personal uniform that is, would be to tell the ChiComs that, since we owe you guys around $2 TRILLION in loans, the fine for spying on us is now, $2 TRILLION! In cash! Also, "every single thing" that is exported to the US by you guys will be "inspected" (see: VERY rigorously inspected ) for quality, and also taxed. But that's just me...

BTW, while the design for my uniform would be highly secret, i can drop a few clues to my good pals here. It will include a long black cape, a shinny black helmet, and a monocle...

A REALLY early Friday Funny.

I was eating breakfast with my 8-year-old Grandson and I asked him, "What day is tomorrow?".

Without skipping a beat he said "It's President's Day!".

He's a smart kid. So I asked him "What does President's Day mean?".

I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln .... etc.

He replied, "President's Day is when President Obama steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow, we have 4 more years of Bull Shit."

You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose!  And who knew Coffee Mate creamer 'smelled' like that?

I'm betting they won't use HIS brain!

So our beloved leader has decided that he wants part of his legacy to be the mapping of the human brain.  I think this might be a worthwhile project.  BUT it should be paid for by people who will make money from it.  It should not be done with a dime's worth of money from the Federal Government.  As with the genome project, there's money at the end of this rainbow.  So how's about the guys that will make the money, make the investments too?
The Obama administration is planning a decade-long scientific effort to examine the workings of the human brain and build a comprehensive map of its activity, seeking to do for the brain what the Human Genome Project did for genetics.

The project, which the administration has been looking to unveil as early as March, will include federal agencies, private foundations and teams of neuroscientists and nanoscientists in a concerted effort to advance the knowledge of the brain’s billions of neurons and gain greater insights into perception, actions and, ultimately, consciousness. 

Scientists with the highest hopes for the project also see it as a way to develop the technology essential to understanding diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, as well as to find new therapies for a variety of mental illnesses.

Moreover, the project holds the potential of paving the way for advances in artificial intelligence.

Anyway, regardless of who pays, I suggest that they NOT use Obama's brain for this mapping, as the map would just look like a map of Cook County / Chicago.

Advice (Warning?) For You Married Guys

Nine Words Women Use Speaking to Husband or Other:

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing.. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' ... that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying screw YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, i'll do it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

This Is How Revolutions (should) Start

With no one to stop them, the Marxist-in-Chief and his followers are pulling out all the stops in turning America into Venezuela North or Berlin of the late 30's. Not since the revolution of 1775 has America been this close to implosion and complete collapse. Not since that revolution have the freedoms and liberties of the people been threatened to this degree. At no time in our history have our laws, history, traditions, religious beliefs, freedoms, and the Constitution itself, been under such intense attack.

Americans are known the world over as a people who will fight for freedom and liberty. Apparently, just not our own. And the response from the people? Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z- 


P.S. My comments are disappearing again!!

That is one UGLY dog!!!

I'm not a full breed dog guy.  To me, a Heinz 57 is usually better in a family with kids or family 'life'.  Full breed dogs can be high strung, and in the case of THIS dog, they can be plain, old YOUG-LEE!
Banana Joe, a black dog with a monkeylike face, became the first affenpinscher to win Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday night. He defeated six dogs, one a Portuguese water dog on the same night that Bo, who is the same breed, watched his master, President Obama, deliver the State of the Union address.  
“He’s won a lot of big, big shows, but none like this one,” said his handler, Ernesto Lara, who held onto Joey, as he calls him, during a postshow news conference. 

Joey sat calmly, as if he could have gone back onto the floor of Madison Square Garden and taken on his challengers again. He stuck his tongue out as Lara answered questions. He didn’t appear to need any celebratory drinks or snacks. 
The article says 'monkey face', I think they've insulted monkeys!  He looks like he's been chasing parked cars.

For Us "Terrorists and Outlaws"?

Last years, we all noticed how the Dept. of Homeland Stupidity was out buying up every single round they could find. Hundreds-of-Millions of rounds in fact, and Hollow Points at that! It actually caused some of us to have a problem finding ammo. The excuse they gave was, "it's for our agents to practice ". Practice? How many agents do they have? I've been a shooter for fifty years and i've never heard of anyone using Hollow Points to practice with.

So, WTF is going on here? This type of ammo is either for self defense or close-quarter combat. That pretty much eliminates the radical towel heads in the Middle East. Perhaps it's to defend against the Russians, ChiComs, Iranians, N. Koreans? Or, does the Marxist-in-Chief see another, perhaps bigger threat, say, We The People? Are we being surrounded without even realizing it? Do you remember George Custer?




so, I was thinking the other day.  We have these yahoos constantly in search of people worshiping in public, or making public specatcles of their faith via parades, park displays, memorials etc. Basically anything that has to do with Christianity in a public venue that in any way can be tied to the "public"

In my adopted home town of St. George, Utah, we have Dixie State College, on the verge of becoming ________  __________  University.  The blanks are there because of the contriversy of the name.  There seem to be a lot of people that consider the word "Dixie" to be racist.  Completely disregard that fact that Utah's "Dixie" was named such when Brigham Young sent colonists to a god-forsaken local in hopes of raising cotton, silk, and grapes in order to reduce the dependancy of the early settlers on imports from the nation that had essentially kicked them out.  It was named "Dixie" because it was hoped that the agriculture would be similar to that of the American southeast, also refered to as "Dixie"  This was well before the second American Civil War, more commonly referred to as the war between the states....but I digress.....

so I was thinking, with this fetish with the abolishment of all things in the public sector that can be associated with Christianity,  why have we never seen any law suits demanding that the names of many principalities be changed.  Are not names of places like: St. Augustine, St. Petersburg, St Louis, St. Joseph, St. Jacob, and St. George, all can be uncategorically related to being named after Catholic Saints.  Massachusetts is the only state I can find that does not have a "Saint" something city in it.

If the naming of municipalities after Christian icons is not overt combination of church and state, I don't know what is. 

Me thinks that unless there is overt coercion, these meddlers need to stay out of small town America where people have traditions and values.  Else they need to truly put their money where their mouth is and not be hypocritical, and start filing some real law suits in order to enforce the mytholigical seperation of church and state.

Just a thought.

Geraldo Rivera is Communist Ass Hat

...so Geraldo was on FOX this morning, expounding on ???, AND on drone strikes aimed at Al Queda, Taliban, Islamofascists, etc, etc, ad finitum, ad nauseum.  And he says that we SHOULDN'T be killing Americans without giving them due process, via courts, judges, etc when they are fighting for those groups.  Then he as much as says, it's 'unprecedented' in American history, and THAT boys and girls is where he steps on his wiener.

Let's go back to days of old, circa 1754, we, the British Colonists in America, fought the French and Indian War.  I have no names and dates, but I'm betting that just like in ALL wars there were people From Side "A", who were fighting for, spying for, hoping for Side "B" to win.  Some of those people would have been killed during that war.

There was NO judge, warrants for arrest, or court system to sort them out BEFORE they were killed on a battle field.

Next, let's go back to days of old, circa 1767, we, the British Colonists in America, were being pushed as far we wished to be pushed BY the British Crown, and OUR King.  I have no names and dates, but I'm betting that just like in ALL wars there were people From Side "A", who were fighting for, spying for, hoping for Side "B" to win.  Some of those people would have been killed during that war.

There was NO judge, warrants for arrest, or court system to sort them out BEFORE they were killed on a battle field.

Now obviously I can go on ALL day long doing this.  There are, in every conflict, people who side with the natural enemy of the group they find themselves in.  Those people work often as spies for the side they favor, or they can and do go into the battlefields and openly fight against the side they 'should' be supporting.  What I don't get, is this near constant mouth flapping about Americans being killed while fighting AGAINST the U.S. in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, IRAN, and elsewhere, without due process or before they are tried in absentia, found guilty and sentenced to death.

Here's the problem, hand wringers AND Geraldo, we don't know WHO they are in many instances before they show up IN those places.  There is no written or set-up system for signing out of the country and becoming an enemy combatant, and, there never has been.  And what the legal process would be for identifying people who sneak out of the U.S., to go elsewhere and fight against American Imperialism. is beyond the knowledge of even legal scholars if I read the OpEds correctly.

So where does this leave us?

To me, it leaves the United States government and the Military and Intelligence Agencies in the same situation as Law Enforcement personnel find themselves in daily.  An American citizen has decided of their own free will, to attempt to kill other American citizens, and at the point where they are actively caught in the act, or at the point where they are hiding out with or traveling with people who have been earmarked for being killed by the U.S., THEY have placed themselves there.  If they are in the wrong place at the wrong time, it's not the fault of the Army, Air Force, SEALS, CIA, NSA or anyone else, when the bombs start dropping or the drones start firing at them.

They chose that, and the Geraldo style handwringers need to accept that THEY chose that lifestyle and its possible endings.  When a guy with a gun, points a gun at a cop or deputy in Arm Pitt, AR or NYC, and the police shoot that person, no one says they should have gotten a judge involved BEFORE the LEOs defend themselves.
And I understand that people go on and on daily about police brutality or bad shootings.  We've got one of those right now in Fayetteville, NC over a guy who tried to evade the police in a car, and the officer shot and killed him.  There is proof that the runner was shooting at the police as he drove, but the NAACP is still bitching about the shooting being 'excessive'. 
But I've never heard anyone say the LEO's aren't giving the perps their due process, and that they should get a court order before they protect the citizens from the crazed killers..

KKK on the loose in Philly!!!

So I'm reading Drudge, and there's a link there that says, "KKK in Philly!".  I'm a news junky, so I go to the link, it IS a guy in a KKK hood, in Philly.  But here's the kicker, it's a BLACK man in the hood.
In 2013, no one expects to see a man dressed in a Ku Klux Clan robe mid-morning in Center City, Philadelphia.

“I think that’s nonsense,” said one woman on the street.

“He needs to be committed to the jail system,” said another onlooker.
The man, who stood on the corner of 13th and Filbert on Tuesday, is not out to lynch or kill black people. In fact, he is black.

Thirty-five-year-old Sixx King says he’s using the offensive symbol to highlight a serious problem: black on black crime.
“We’re bringing awareness to the black hypocrisy, complacency and apathy in the African-American community,” said King.
According to the FBI, in 2011 more than 7,000 black people were killed. King’s sign reads that the KKK killed 3,446 blacks in 86 years, while black on black murders surpass that number every six months.
“All my anger for my ancestors who went through that terror of a Ku Klux Klan hood and what that symbolizes to me, evoked anger,” said Philadelphia Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. “I was angry!”
Councilman Jones took a picture of what he witnessed and posted it on Facebook. Hundreds have shared the image, and the comments were mixed..
So here's my question.  HTH can you be so blind that you're more concerned with what used to happen, that you ignore what's happening DAILY?!  And then it hit me, these boobs are so brainwashed into seeing that hood and white skin as the ultimate EVIL, that black people killing black people is NOT hardly seen as evil at all.  Or, if wasn't for the Klan and American racism, the ghetto wouldn't exist at all, and the black on black crime wouldn't exist either..

Of course, taking that to the ultimate end, how many of today's African-AMERICANS would even be alive, if the slaves had not been brought here or taken to the Caribbean, or Cuba or wherever?  There's one thing for sure though, my white-@$$ will NEVER be able to ask that question in the open.

I really liked that person who thought he should be put in jail for that hood.  I wonder what they thought of the NBPP guys with their berets, shades and night sticks at the polls in 2008.

I am SO glad my taxes go to THIS!!!

I don't even know where to start on this story.  So I'll go with it, and you can decide.
A public university’s Union Activities Board (UAB) paid $304.69 to purchase sex toys as prizes for a “Dirty Bingo” event, an administrator told Campus Reform on Thursday.

The items purchased as awards include butt plugs, an artificial vagina, vibrators, dildos, lubricant, edible underwear, a book on sex positions, and other items, Lauryn Collier, president of North Carolina State University’s (NCSU) UAB, told Campus Reform in a statement Thursday.

An image, posted to the event’s Facebook page, also reveals artificial vaginas among the many prizes to be given away.

The “Dirty Bingo” event, slated to take place next Tuesday, aims to find “innovative” ways to discuss sexual health on the campus.

“The certified educators plan to use some of the items (those that are appropriate) to demonstrate healthy sex practices,” said Collier in the statement.

A spokesperson for NCSU did not return multiple requests for comment made by Campus Reform and would not say whether or not there is an age requirement for attending the event. Like most undergraduate institutions the NCSU community includes minors, under the age of 18.  

The event, which is being funded through mandatory student fees, has drawn criticism from students on campus.
And ANYONE who thinks that this is what parents have in mind when they pay that fee of several hundred dollars per semester, should lose their job YESTERDAY.  I don't have kids in school there, but I do live here and pay taxes here and this shit should be done ELSEWHERE, not on a campus I help fund.

And so much for the Bible Belt running through the South anymore.

And, They Vote...

1. Will the real dummy please stand up? AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.

2. With a little help from our friends: Police in Oakland, CA, spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting, 'Please come out and give yourself up.'

3. What was Plan B?: An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

4. The getaway!: A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

5. Did I say that?: Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a line-up. When detectives asked each man in the line-up to repeat the words: 'Give me all your money or I'll shoot,' the man shouted, 'that's not what I said!'

6. Are we communicating?: A man spoke frantically into the phone: 'My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart,' 'Is this her first child?' the doctor asked. 'No,' the man shouted, 'this is her husband!'

7. Not the sharpest tool in the shed!: In Modesto, CA, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun. Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellooooooo)!

8. The grand finale!: Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard. (Now remember ... this is true) Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

Legalization, Taxation, Education, Rehabilitation

Legalization, Taxation, Education, Rehabilitation, has been my mantra for YEARS.  Personally I'm very libertarian where 'drugs' are concerned.  Our prison system is crippled under the weight of drug related criminals.  And many of them are low level street dealers OR Joe Average who gets busted for his / her recreational amount of "X" drug.

Well, you gotta start somewhere.
An effort is building in Congress to change U.S. marijuana laws, including moves to legalize the industrial production of hemp and establish a hefty federal pot tax.

While passage this year could be a longshot, lawmakers from both parties have been quietly working on several bills, the first of which Democratic Reps. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Jared Polis of Colorado plan to introduce Tuesday, Blumenauer told The Associated Press.

Polis' measure would regulate marijuana the way the federal government handles alcohol: In states that legalize pot, growers would have to obtain a federal permit. Oversight of marijuana would be removed from the Drug Enforcement Administration and given to the newly renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana and Firearms, and it would remain illegal to bring marijuana from a state where it's legal to one where it isn't.

His office said Monday it doesn't yet have an estimate of how much the taxes might bring in. But a policy paper Blumenauer and Polis are releasing this week suggests, based on admittedly vague estimates, that a federal tax of $50 per ounce could raise $20 billion a year. They call for directing the money to law enforcement, substance abuse treatment and the national debt.
The only thing I see in this first proposal is the taxes are TOO high.  $50 an ounce is, by my reckoning, is like a $50 tax on a fifth of liquor.  That's kind of high.  But there IS a 'hidden' savings here that I don't see ONE of the pointy headed elected worms looking into.
How much money will be saved by taking minimal pot busts out of the legal system?  Our for that matter, minimal coke busts?  If they'd legalize this crap, put it in the liquor stores, or create DRUG stores just for the now illegal drugs, and we'd save Billions of $$$'s in interdiction, prosecution and prison costs.

It would also, like killing Prohibition did, take money off the streets and take power out of the hands of gangs.  That can't be a bad thing.

Friday Funny


The day after her husband disappeared In a kayaking accident, an Anchorage woman answered her door to find two grim faced Alaska State Troopers.

"We're sorry Mrs. Wilkens, but we have some information about your husband," said one of the troopers. 

"Tell me! Did you find him?" Wilkens asked.

The troopers looked at each other. One said, "We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news. Which would you like to hear first?"

Fearing the worst, the tearful Mrs. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first."

The trooper said, "I'm sorry to tell you, ma'am, but this morning we found your husband's body in Kachemak Bay ."

"Oh my God!," said Wilkens. Swallowing hard, she asked, "What's the good news?"

The trooper continued, "When we pulled him up, he had 12 twenty-five-pound King crabs and 6 good-sized Dungeness crabs clinging to him, and by Alaska Laws and common decency, we feel you are entitled to a share in the catch."

Stunned, Mrs. Wilkens demanded, "If that's the good news, then what's the great news?"

The trooper smiled and said, "We're gonna pull him up again tomorrow!"
