A Day Of Jury Duty…

Just recently I got selected for jury duty for the state circuit court in the county where I live. I dutifully filled out the required forms and sent them in and awaited the day when or if called. That day came yesterday and what followed was the most pitiful excuse of a criminal trial imaginable being run by a group of circus clowns. I’ll walk you through the process and case as it happened that day. Read more of this post

Since When Is An Increase In the Jobless Rate A Sign Of Job Growth?

Today I went and opened up my browser and being the old stick in the mud I am, I still have MSN set as my homepage. Hey what can I say it’s a great way to shake off that sleepy feeling first thing in the morning by seeing the lunacy from MSNBC. As an example of this take a look at this picture and caption from MSN:

Now look at that the US economy revs up job growth and that we have an a bigger than expected rise in jobs created.

Ok I got a question: If that is all true then explain to me how the jobless rate went up to 9% ?

You see, if the jobless rate went up that means you LOST more jobs than you CREATED. That in turn means there is no job growth.

Note to MSNBC: We know you’re in the tank for Obama, but you shouldn’t be so obvious about trying to spin to make the economy look like it is recovering when it is tanking

Corporate Taxes?

Something that alot of people, especially those on the left, espouse in this debate over state and federal budgets is that we need to close “Corporate Tax” loopholes and raise their rates. The people that espouse that either do not understand how business works or they are deliberately trying to mislead people. Here is the dirty little secret about “Corporate taxes”: The money to pay those taxes comes from you the consumer not from the corporations or the “rich” people that own stock in them. You close the so called “loopholes” or raise those rates and all you did was ensure that everything you buy just went up in price, costing you more money. To put it bluntly a corporate tax is nothing more then a VAT once removed.

Here is how things work people:

For a business to stay “in business” they must take in more revenue then they pay out, this  is called a profit margin. The profit margin must be high enough that the people that invested in that company (stockholders) get a return (divided or increase in stock price) they feel is high enough to compensate for their investing (risking the loss of ) money in that corporation.

Now lets put this in simple terms using the largest completely private employer in the world, Wal-Mart, as the example. Read more of this post

People Don’t Kill People, Candy Canes Do!

No this is not a joke, at least to one public school in the state of Virginia:

Skylar Torbett, also a junior, said administrators told him, “They said the candy canes are weapons because you can sharpen them with your mouth and stab people with them.” He said neither he nor any of their friend did that.

I came across this while perusing Instapundit ( http://pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/ ), which led to the main article where you learn that a group of 10 students known as the “Christmas Sweater Club” was handing out 2 inch candy canes to their fellow students before school started . From there the Commissar Principal of the school makes the usual noises about punishing these vile hoodlums that handout dangerous weapons to the impressionable young. However it looks more like the usual of discriminating against those that try to enjoy the Christmas season:

Mother Kathleen Flannery said an administrator called her and explained “not everyone wants Christmas cheer. That suicide rates are up over Christmas, and that they should keep their cheer to themselves, perhaps.”

The Religion of Peace

As shown on Skynews a video of a woman being whipped for a crime. What was her crime you ask? Wearing a pair of pants under her Islamic garb.

Here is a link to the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve_JJFF5X-g&feature=player_embedded#!

Now bleeding heart libtards like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behr say that only Islamic extremists are terrorists and condone violence, but this video shows that is not the case. Not only does the government condone this stuff, they have a special police force that perpetrates this sickening violence. They draw a good crowd as they whip this woman and as shown it is great fun as one official laughs out loud on camera. So for all you Libtards out there get it through your heads: The ones you label as Islamic extremists are not the minority of the Islamic faith they are the majority and to them this is not extreme. This is what they want to do to every woman, in every country around the world.

Another Reason Why The NYT’s Is Circling the Drain

It has already been well established that the NYT’s is a very left leaning newspaper. This is fact that can not be disputed when you go back and look at how they covered the Stalin led USSR, by lying about what was going on there. They knew that Stalin was massacring his own people but lied about it, not just refused to cover it.

We also know that the left has a problem acknowledging the truth about the so call religion of peace: Islam.

However with that all said you would still hope they could do better then this:

No emotion or hint of the defendant’s thoughts flickered across his pale features, as more than two dozen other soldiers and civilians spoke under oath about their struggle to survive in the terrifying minutes after he yelled “Allahu akbar!” — “God is great” in Arabic — and started shooting.

(break)

A parade of prosecution witnesses — many of them still struggling with their wounds — provided a gripping, almost cinematic account of the attack in which 13 people died and dozens were wounded.

(break)

Yet the gunman and his motive remain an enigma.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/16/us/16hearing.html?_r=3&partner=rss&emc=rss

Seriously ? You can’t figure out his motive? Here let me help you: Hasan is a Muslim fanatic that wanted to kill and wound as many non Muslims as he could before he died, that way ensuring him his 72 virgins in the afterlife. That is kind of the whole point of yelling Allahu Akbar and shooting people for Muslim fanatics.

I Wonder How The MSM Is Going To Spin The Blame On This

By now you should have heard about the deranged man that has taken hostages in the Discovery Channel  offices. Now here is the problem: The Whack Job doesn’t fit the MSM template. The guy is Asain not white and the reason he did this is that he is OUT TO SAVE THE PLANET! You see this guy read a book about a Gorilla that can communicate with humans and the Gorillas wisdom shows those he converses with how to SAVE THE PLANET.  However that wasn’t enough to trip this guys trigger, what finally pushed him over the edge into eco loonyism was he saw Al Gore’s film “An Inconvient Truth”. From there things went down hill quickly and you can read his own words from the Google cache of his website:

The Discovery Channel produces a lot of shows about saving the planet that all have one thing in common: They don’t work. Why don’t they have REAL shows about SAVING THE PLANET? Have you ever noticed the crap they have on their network about just about everything else but that? They glorify fishermen who are overfishing the planet, they glorify Weapons of Mass Destruction. They highlight shows about people who build pollution machines and other environmentally harmful practices. What’s next? Whaling the Planet with Modern Whalers??? These guys have been very sneaky and deceptive as to their contribution to the planetary problems. Just look at their ‘new’ show about saving the planet, “Planet Green,” to me, it’s just another show about more PRODUCTS to make MONEY, not about actual solutions. We can’t let them get away with doing it anymore. Join me in the PROTEST AGAINST THE DISCOVERY NETWORK to get them to start broadcasting real shows that actually work to save the planet. But not just a show about THEM TELLING US WHAT LIGHTBULB TO USE, but shows where solutions are brought to the new shows from people all over with good ideas. This will be a democratic process searching for those with good ideas. Inventiveness has got us into this mess, and now inventiveness can get us out. Not necessarily with more products, but maybe by just being allowed to live a different way. 

If their ‘environmental’ shows are actually working, then why is the news about the environment getting worse? It should be getting better if they were doing their job and we should be seeing that reflected on the nightly news. But NO! The Discovery Channel is actually not about saving the planet, they are just another ‘green’ corporation whose real interests lies in MONEY! Products! Junk! Trash! 

The show they should broadcast is in the book, “My Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn, where he talks about how people can build on each other’s ideas to come up with real solutions for saving the planet. I envisioned it would be like a contest, or competition … maybe a game show? I don’t know, so long as it WORKS! Keep bringing out new shows based on that idea until one actually WORKS! That’s all I ask. 

I know the hours and days for the protest event seems a bit long, but if the Discovery Channel is going to take this protest serious, we need to show them we are serious and are willing to wait them out until they give into our demands. 

Mapquest: Directions to Discovery Channel One Discovery Place, Silver Spring Maryland 20910, near the crossroads of Georgia Ave and Wayne Ave just right off of the Red Line Metro Station. I’ll be there every day demonstrating what shows they can have and how it would work to save this planet from 9am to 9pm February 15-23, 2008. My name is Lee, look for me. Bring  a sign and make your voice be heard for a better planet. 

To network and meet other people for the protest, go to Myspace: groups.myspace.com/savetheplanetprotest 

If you don’t have a myspace account and can’t post, then go here to Ezboard:  http://savetheplanetprotest.yuku.com/ 

And most importantly, go to the author of “My Ishmael,” Daniel Quinn’s site: Ishmael.com.

So does that sound like the right wing terrorist Janet Napolitano warned us off? Or how about the typical Right Wing Angry White Guy the MSM likes to feature?  Yeah I thought so.

That leaves us with the question: How Is The MSM going to blame conservatives, republicans or the vast right wing conspiracy.

Woolly Mammoths Committed Suicide Via Climate Change!

Recently there has been two articles released dealing with Woolly Mammoths and Climate Change.

The first was on 24 May:

Mammoths contributed to global warming with methane emissions

Mammoths helped to fill the atmosphere with methane and keep the Earth warm more than 13,000 years ago, scientists believe.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/climatechange/7755563/Mammoths-contributed-to-global-warming-with-methane-emissions.html

Now we got this on 18 Aug:

Woolly mammoth killed off by climate change

Climate change rather than the hunting skills of early man killed off the last of the woolly mammoths, according to a new study.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthnews/7950058/Woolly-mammoth-killed-off-by-climate-change.html

There you have it folks Wooly Mammoths farted too much, thus causing Global Warming and in the end it killed them. Now if they had only enacted a Cap and Trade system of Farts they would still be alive.

Science Has Officially Jumped The Shark (at least IMO)

It’s official folks Science as a whole has Jumped the Shark.

How can I come to this conclusion?

Simple. Not one but two studies were done where they tested to see if the phenomena known as “Beer Goggles” really do exist.

‘Beer goggles’ fog up sexual signals

First, a suds-soaked fog diminishes a guy’s ability to detect facial symmetry, a crucial component of what we think of as human beauty. When this sense is dulled, an average-looking face may seem like it belongs to a hottie, suggests research on drunk college kids in the journal Alcohol.

To make matters even worse, another study shows liquor makes guys more likely to misinterpret a friendly female glance as a bold come-on.

“The average guy tends to perceive more women as being sexually interested after a few drinks and be more likely to make mistakes about what a woman feels,” says study co-author Teresa Treat, an associate professor at the University of Iowa whose finding appears in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology.

You can read about it here: http://bodyodd.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2010/08/18/4915611-beer-goggles-fog-up-sexual-signals?gt1=43001

So did we really need a study where they showed guys pictures of women sober, have them classify them, get them a buzz on with Vodka, relook at the pictures and find out that the “Beer Goggle” effect is real?

Look if you want to test the Beer Goggle Phenomena just go to your local bar and don’t drink while your pals do. Over the next few hours you will notice that your friends level of “taste” in female companionship falls in proportion to have many beers he has had. Trust me on this I have seen it enough times because I don’t drink alcohol, I went along as the designated driver. We already knew “Beer Goggles” were real because if it wasn’t we never would have come up with the term “Coyote Ugly” to expalin to your friends what happens the morning after.

Soylent Green Is People!

Remember that famous line from the 1973 film Soylent Green starring Charlton Heston? For those that don’t because you are too young or for any other reason here is a brief synopsis of the film:

Soylent Green is a 1973 American science fiction film directed by Richard Fleischer. Starring Charlton Heston, the film overlays the police procedural and science fiction genres as it depicts the investigation into the brutal murder of a wealthy businessman in a dystopian future suffering from pollution, overpopulation, depleted resources, poverty, dying oceans and a hot climate due to the greenhouse effect. Much of the population survives on processed food rations, including “soylent green”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soylent_Green

Jeez sounds like today doesn’t it? What you will find in this film is every eco loony scare story there is including what happens when you let them implement “solutions” to these problems. One of the “solutions” is assisted suicide, but the question in the film is: What happens to the bodies?

Well at the climax of the film you find out:

Prompted by Roth, Thorn sneaks into the basement of the assisted suicide facility, where he sees corpses being loaded onto waste disposal trucks. He secretly hitches a ride on one of the trucks, which is driven to a heavily guarded waste disposal plant. Once inside the plant, Thorn sees how the corpses are processed into Soylent Green wafers. Thorn escapes and heads for the “Supreme Exchange”, but is ambushed by Fielding and several other gunmen. He retreats into a cathedral filled with homeless people. After a desperate fight through throngs of sleeping homeless, Thorn kills Fielding.

When police backup arrives, the seriously wounded and nearly hysterical Thorn confides to Hatcher the horrible secret behind Soylent Green, finally urging him to spread the word: “Soylent Green is people! We’ve got to stop them somehow!”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soylent_Green

Now nothing even close to that could ever happen in the real world now could it?

Well think again, just keep those bolded words from the Soylent Green film plotline in mind when reading the following quotes:

Belgian undertakers plan to dissolve dead and flush them into sewage system

Belgian undertakers have drawn up plans to dissolve the corpses of the dead in caustic solutions and flush them into the sewage system.

The controversial new method is said to be less expensive and more environmentally friendly than running highly polluting crematoria or using up valuable land for graves.

The departed would go into the sewage systems of towns and cities and then be recycled in water processing plants.

Now I wonder where that treated water goes to……ah never mind that for the moment just be glad that is only happening in Belgium and could never happen in the US. Right?

Six states in America – Maine, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Oregon, and Maryland have recently passed legislation that allow the process to be used.

And life once again imitates art: Your Tap Water is Grandma! I seriously wonder how far away we are from truly having Soylent Green.
