Veiled Threat To Muslim Women Drivers

Monday, September 30th, 2013


KQT gave me the background for this post. Here she's seen driving on a busy Rochester, NY street.

Sheikh Saleh al-Lohaidan, a top Muslim cleric, believes women who drive cars risk damaging their ovaries by pushing their pelvis upward and bearing children with clinical problems. Saudi Arabia, a strong ally of the United States, now limits driving to men-only.  A protest scheduled for October 26 calls for women to defy the ban – and drive.  Obviously it will only be successful if there are few accidents due to a lack of driving experience.

Last week the ‘Women Driver’ campaign went viral on the internet. On Sunday, access to it’s website was blocked by Saudi officials.

As a member of the Saudi Senior Council of Scholars, the biologically-challenged Sheik can write religious edicts and advise the government. He said women who want to drive should put “reason ahead of their hearts, emotions and passions.”

The final decision of Saudi women drivers will be made by King Abdulla. The King has four wives. His father – who reigned when cars were introduced to the Mideast – had 145.

Should UN Intervene In US Civil Gun War?

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

“If it’s viewed as an international humanitarian crisis, does it call for outside intervention? As citizens of the world, perhaps we should demand an end to the unimaginable suffering of victims and their families – the maiming and killing of children – just as America does in every new civil conflict around the globe.

The annual toll from firearms in the US is running at 32,000 deaths and climbing, even though the general crime rate is on a downward path. If this perennial slaughter doesn’t qualify for intercession by the UN, it is hard to know what does.

That 212,994 more Americans lost their lives from firearms in the last 45 years than in all wars involving the US is a staggering fact.”

This is from a column by Henry Porter in the British paper ‘The Guardian”  It was sent to me by my friend Ned Ludd.  I think it’s very funny.

First of all, everyone knows where I stand on more impotent gun legislation:  too late; 300-million guns already out here. But I laugh at the anticipated reaction of most Americans to this very idea.

“WHAT!  WhyTF is this tea-sipping, chimney sweep sticking his nose in our business?!  We can run our own country even if it’s filled with violence, religious wars, regional rivalries, overwhelming corruption, and a dysfunctional government!  MYOFB!”

Our hypocrisy is hilarious!  We can’t quite understand that every country in which we intervene feels exactly the same way.

Today Is National Coffee Day

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Are you a junkie?

What’s the first thing a diner waitress says when she sees you?

“Coffee? Right away!”

And you’d better get it ‘right away’, Sugar Lips, because you’ve got a caffeine junkie who is now hurtling through drug withdrawal and trying hard not to snatch up the butter knife and stab the annoying people seated next to him.  Withdrawal symptoms started about 26-hours after your last cup of the legal drug.

As soon as you score your fix, you tear up little packets of white powder plus containers of liquid poison, and quickly mix up the nearly boiling-brew – before pouring it over one of the most sensitive parts of your body. Ouch! It hurts so good – like the needle prick announcement of anticipated joy when a junkie pushes a needle into her vein.  Coffee is America’s Drug of Choice – BY FAR! 50-million caffeine addicts drink an average of 4-cups per day.

I don’t drink coffee but I certainly don’t care what you do.

However, I would care very much if you’re one of those flaming, “respectable” hypocrites who thinks you’re better than the millions of Americans rotting in jail cells because they loved a drug which is different than yours. Your drug is legal and inexpensive. Their drugs are illegal – making them very expensive.

Still, probably we’re all just junkies in the grand scheme of the universe – and it doesn’t need you to judge what’s right or wrong.

Free coffee here.

Another countdown to shutdown. If you’re an Obamaphile,  you’re blaming all those mean, old Conservatives in Congress.  If you can add 2+2 and get 4, you’re blaming Obama who thinks he can add the costs of his interventionist foreign policy ($12.5-million per drone ALONE) plus Obamacare and come anywhere close to ‘even’ with the country’s revenue. If you’re like me, you think they’re all in the ‘Political Nitwits’ aisle of your local “Dumb-R-Us” store.

Polls say about 75-80% of the American people disapprove of Congress. Yet 95% of the hacks there have been RE-ELECTED.  Shop at ‘Dumb-R-Us’ much?  You can find one solution here – it’s easy.

Uhh, Witness Excused…

Senator Charles W. Tobey was a devout, prudish Baptist from New Hampshire. He loved playing the piano while singing hymns to his friends and admirers.   In 1951, he was a member of the Kefauver Congressional Committee investigating organized crime in America.  Virginia Hill was a beautiful Mob “playgirl” who was subpoenaed to testify.  Tobey wanted to know why she “kept getting all these expensive presents and large sums of money?”

Senator Tobey: “Young lady, what makes you the favorite of the mob?”

Ms. Hill: “Senator, I’m the best goddamned cocksucker in the world.”

Senator Tobey: “_______________

T-Shirt Hell – “Where All the Bad Shirts Go”

Blue Man Fades To Black

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Paul Karason died Monday of complications from a heart attack. He was 62. Known as the “Blue Man,” the strange recluse had a skin condition which he “self-medicated” by drinking large amounts of colloidal silver.  His skin turned a shocking tone of blue.

The first time I came across Paul he was single and, of course, blue.  A short time later I read about a young woman who turned herself orange by eating carrots exclusively for 30- straight days.  I suggested a colorful, romantic hookup resulting in beautiful, mauve-like children – but never heard from either of them again.  You can read about it here.
