Paranormal activity finds mainstream acceptance...among the gullible

Foolish story, via CNN

As for those who aren't "ready to believe you," Veatch said, "I know that a scientist would have to copy something elsewhere to prove it exists, but you can't always use the scientific method in this field."

Fats Waller- This Joint Is Jumpin'

Hundreds of prehistoric insects found intact within huge amber deposit

The 1993 film "Jurassic Park" was based on the premise that scientists were able to extract dinosaur DNA from ancient mosquitoes that fed on the prehistoric reptiles and had been preserved in tree resin. That story line is science fiction, but real scientists have discovered what is being called the largest amber deposit ever found — and it's loaded with perfectly preserved ancient bugs...Prehistoric bees, ants, spiders and mites that become encased within the amber over 50 million years ago can now be studied in unprecedented detail.

CRTC, on queue, f*cks over consumers..again

Internet competition in Canada is a joke, what with the happy dance done between the telecoms and the government.

Customers see the corruption, it's hard to miss, but the way the system is designed can do fuck all about it.

The CRTC has varied one of its decisions on an appeal, which means pretty soon Bell will be allowed to charge wholesale Internet service providers – ISPs, such as Primus and TekSavvy – on a usage-based billing model. That means customers of those smaller ISPs will no longer enjoy unlimited Internet plans, will see data caps put in place and possibly higher monthly fees.

The decision, which comes into effect in 90 days, is emblematic of a gradual shift in the way Canadians are paying for Internet services and is not a particularly sharp turn for the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, which has made an effort to rely more on market forces in recent years. Nevertheless, this has huge implications for competitive “resellers,” like the two mentioned above, because they bring other services to market (like VoIP) over the networks of the big guys.

Of course, a Bell employee or fellow traveller had this to say:

3:30 PM on October 29, 2010
Sounds like a good ruling for freedom and property rights. Since when does competition mean providing your competitors with services in the precise way they demand? There is no right to flat-rate internet access.

Ron Howard: "It's Gay" joke stays cause straight people buy more tickets

Translation: We find it hilarious, and don't care if it is offensive, I mean it's only gays, sheesh....

Fuck you Opie

Rarely has an offensive joke been defended so lamely, and because it's gays that are being laughed at, he thinks he can spend paragraphs defending it.

Had this been a "nigger" joke, would he be as defensive?

Fuck you Opie

Comics have been making gay jokes for years, but perhaps none of them has caused as much of a stir as the quip uttered by Vince Vaughn when he made fun of an electric car by saying, "It's gay," in the trailer for the upcoming Ron Howard comedy, "The Dilemma." Coming just as the media was full of stories about taunts and attacks on gay teens that drove some to suicide, the joke hit a raw nerve. After CNN's Anderson Cooper publicly took issue with the trailer's joke, saying "we've got to do something to make those words unacceptable 'cause those words are hurting kids," a full-blown controversy erupted. Universal Pictures pulled the trailer, substituting a new one scrubbed of any gay humor.

But that was three weeks ago, and this is now. Universal has confirmed to me that the joke is staying in the movie, which is slated for release in January. The decision is ultimately Howard's call, since he is a final-cut director, although my sources tell me that Howard sought advice from a variety of sources, not only from talent involved with the film but also from people at Universal and in the larger comedy community.

Ohio McDonald's: Pushy Republican unsure on the concept of Democracy

If you work for this Canton, Ohio McDonald's franchise, you'd better be voting Republican if you know what's good for you.

Via ThinkProgress:

Along with their recent paychecks, employees received a pamphlet from their employer on company letter head that stated “as the election season is here, we wanted you to know which candidates will help our business grow in the future.” While pointing out that the vote is the employee’s “personal decision,” the pamphlet explicitly states, “if the right people are elected we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above our present levels. If others are elected we will not”:

The "right people" are John Kasich, Rob Portman, and Jim Renacci for this franchisee.

There's only one small problem with that handbill: It's illegal for employers in Ohio to include anything that will influence employees' electoral decisions with paychecks.

Clint McCance: I'm sooo sorrry....I got caught

Translation: I still believe in what I said, but will be careful in future to who I say it to.

Death threats against him and his family are completely inappropriate though.

A school board district member in Arkansas who came under fire for an anti-gay post on a social networking site regrets the comments and will resign his seat, he told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday.

"I'm sorry I've hurt people with my comments," Clint McCance, vice-president of the Midland School District in Pleasant Plains, Arkansas said. "I'm sorry I made those ignorant comments and hurt people on a broad spectrum."

McCance wrote on his personal Facebook page that he wanted gay people to commit suicide, according to The Advocate, a newspaper focusing on gay news.

McCance used the terms "queer" and "fag" repeatedly, promised to disown his own children if they are gay and stated that he enjoys "the fact that [gay people] give each other AIDS and die."

On Thursday, he disowned the comments.

Christine O'Donnel and her little thug

The Christine O'Donnell campaign is apologizing to WDEL after it demanded that video of an O'Donnell appearance on "The Rick Jensen Show" be destroyed and threatened a lawsuit if it wasn't.

Elect people like this at your peril.

O'Donnell's campaign manager, Matt Moran, called WDEL and demanded that the video be immediately turned over to the campaign and destroyed. Moran threatened to "crush WDEL" with a lawsuit if the station didn't comply.

An attorney representing the O'Donnell campaign contacted WDEL's law firm Hogan Lovells and initially asked that the video not be released. WDEL's attorney asserted that the interview and video were in compliance with all applicable laws, was clearly protected free speech under the First Amendment, and that the campaign had no grounds to demand the station withhold it from the public.

After seeing the video the attorney for the O'Donnell campaign contacted WDEL's counsel again to apologize for charges made by their campaign manager. The attorney agreed that there was no legal issue with the video and expressed regret for the incident.

Thus guaranteeing *everyone* would take notice and see it...

Star Trek - The Lost Episode

Mystery UK company supplies death drug

Who cares about laws and ethics when there's money to be made.

The US state of Arizona has revealed that a drug it uses for executions has been supplied by a UK company.

The admission came shortly before Jeffrey Landrigan was put to death after the Supreme Court lifted a federal judge's stay of execution.

The delay was based on objections that the drug was not US approved.

Arizona had to import the anaesthetic sodium thiopental after US supplies ran out. Concern has been raised in the UK, where there is no death penalty.

Arizona said it wanted to show the drug came from a "reputable place", in the first acknowledgement by a US state that sodium thiopental supplies come from outside the US.

Louis XVI's blood in decorated gourd?

Carved pumpkins abound this Halloween season, but a decorated gourd dated to 1793 may be the spookiest of them all. New research determines it may contain the blood of Louis XVI, who was executed by guillotine that same year.

The research, accepted for publication in the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics, shows how genetic analysis can provide new historical evidence independent of other traditional sources of information.

The gourd, originally used to store gunpowder, was extensively decorated on the outside with a flame tool. Burned into its surface is the text: "Maximilien Bourdaloue on January 21st, dipped his handkerchief in the blood of Louis XVI after his beheading."

"It is described in contemporaneous accounts that there was a lot of blood in the scaffold after the beheading and that, in fact, many people went there to dip their handkerchiefs in the blood," Carles Lalueza-Fox, lead author of the study and a researcher at Spain's Institute of Evolutionary Biology, told Discovery News.

Gold's Gym comes out as homophobic

Gold's Gym CEO Robert Rowling probably hoped his $2 million dollar homophobic donation would go unnoticed.

Way to alienate your customers Moron.

Boycott these motherfuckers. They won't listent to reason, so make 'em pay.

Gold's Gym is facing a backlash from LGBT activists over its CEO's $2 million donation to American Crossroads, the conservative political group affiliated with former Bush adviser Karl Rove, and its four franchises in the San Francisco Bay Area are now leaving the brand over the controversy.

On Monday, Don Dickerson, the director of operations for Gold's Gym Bay Area, distributed a message through its Facebook page saying that it will be leaving the Gold's Gym brand

Best bullshit:

Gold's Gym is a non-political organization and our member's dues are not used to fund political candidates. Bob Rowling, the CEO of our ownership group, TRT Holdings, made a private donation completely independent from (and not on behalf of) Gold's Gym.

So many business to boycott...Target, Gold's Gym...the list grows apace.

BP is just so upset that light was shone on their teeny weeny oil spill

If there's one thing BP is clued about (other than safety), it's PR...

Keep diggin' that hole deeper BP, it's a joy to watch you frail.

BP’s new chief executive said on Monday that its rivals and the media had helped cause a climate of fear during the summer when the oil giant’s blown-out Gulf of Mexico well caused the worst ever oil spill in the United States.

The comments by the chief executive, Bob Dudley, represented the latest volley in BP’s battle to rebuild its battered reputation by taking a harder line with those who had attributed the disaster to a safety culture at BP that, they said, put cost-saving before safety.

In an address to the annual conference of a British business lobbying group, the CBI, Mr. Dudley said there had been “a great rush to judgment by a fair number of observers before the full facts could possibly be known, even from some in our industry.

“I watched graphic projections of oil swirling around the gulf, around Florida, across and around Bermuda to England — these appeared authoritative and inevitable,” he said. “The public fear was everywhere.”

BP said in late July that Mr. Dudley would take over as chief executive on Oct. 1, succeeding Tony Hayward, who had come under fire for his handling of the oil spill.

Time traveller spotted in Chaplin film

This short film is about a piece of footage I (George Clarke) found behind the scenes in Charlie Chaplins film 'The Circus'. Attending the premiere at Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA - the scene shows a large woman dressed in black with a hat hiding most of her face, with what can only be described as a mobile phone device - talking as she walks alone.

I have studied this film for over a year now - showing it to over 100 people and at a film festival, yet no-one can give any explanation as to what she is doing.

My only theory - as well as many others - is simple... a time traveler on a mobile phone. See for yourself and feel free to leave a comment on your own explanation or thoughts about it.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt comes across as an arrogant asshole

During an interview on CNN's Parker Spitzer last Friday, Google CEO Eric Schmidt offered a word of advice to users concerned with Google's Street View cameras, which provide photos of cities around the world that are featured online on Google Maps.

Schmidt's statement on Street View was not included in an official transcript of the interview, but according to MarketWatch, here's what was said:

"Street View, we drive exactly once," Schmidt said, referring to the vehicles mounted with cameras sent out to take photos for the service. "So, you can just move, right?" After a brief, subsequent exchange with co-host Kathleen Parker, Schmidt laughed, making it unclear whether the remark was made in jest.

You Americans tortured. Deal with it.

[a] vast disparity between how newspapers around the world and The New York Times reported on a key revelation from these documents: namely, that the U.S. systematically and pursuant to official policy ignored widespread detainee abuse and torture by Iraqi police and military (up to and including murders). In fact, American conduct goes beyond mere indifference into active complicity, as The Guardian today reports that "fresh evidence that US soldiers handed over detainees to a notorious Iraqi torture squad has emerged in army logs published by WikiLeaks."

A Great Darkness Descends upon Toronto

It's just the shadow of our new Mayor, his Honor Alleged Fat F*ck Ford, as he blots out the sun...

Do Not Install iPhoto '11

It's a bug ridden piece of crap.

To the Canadian Tamil Broadcasting Corporation: F*ck You

Ugly bigotry masquerading as religion, but bigotry nevertheless.

a 35-second advertisement that aired on the Canadian Tamil Broadcasting Corporation (CTBC) during a program hosted by a local church called the Miracle Family Temple. The apparently paid advertisement features two people discussing who to vote for in the Toronto election.

“What kind of question is this?” one of the characters says. “I am Tamil. We have a religion and culture. Take Rob Ford: His wife is a woman.”

Yup, that's the kind of shit that's been brought to the surface in this election.

The candidate’s marriage was also the target of smear flyers affixed to some of his lawn signs on the Danforth and in the Beaches.

The flyers featured photos of Mr. Smitherman and Mr. Peloso and read “Should Muslim vote for him who married a man?”

Some really really want to drag us back in time.

Morons reward alleged Fat F*ck Rob Ford for his idiocy

7:36 AM on October 22, 2010
Thank you mainstream media. Thank you for awakening the conservative sensibilities which have lied dormant in Toronto for decades.

10:54 AM on October 22, 2010
Hmm. I don't think it's that conservative sensibilities are being awoken, I think you dum dums are just getting riled up and vocal to see a fellow mouth-breather in the press so much.

This is the Dawning of the Age of Stupid.

Toronto is about to elect a mayor that will rival Harper in global embarrassment potential.

The Rob Ford camp saw spikes in donations around the same time the mayoral candidate weathered some of the more controversial moments of the election campaign, according to a list of contributions made public on Thursday.

The cash rolled in after a newspaper article in July alleging an altercation between Mr. Ford, who is a high school football coach, and a player — which the player later denied ever happened. In August, after revelations that he was convicted of a DUI offence in 1999 in Florida, donations also surged.

Last month, after a columnist in the Toronto Star called on other candidates to drop out and rally behind rival George Smitherman, the team recorded dozens of contributions.

On several occasions, the Ford team has urged its supporters to fight back by donating money to the campaign.

In all, the Ford campaign raised about $690,000 between March 25 and Oct. 12, about half of the allowable amount.

New Hampshire's The Union Leader: We want our chance at a bigoted vote!

The awful people behind this newspaper have probably been happily kicking gays their entire life. It must be so annoying not being able to in the voting box.

Oh well, no matter, there are other spiteful ways to continue the kicking...

New Hampshire's The Union Leader won't print gay marriage notices, even tho it is legal in that state.

Why you may ask?

"This newspaper has never published wedding or engagement announcements from homosexual couples. It would be hypocritical of us to do so, given our belief that marriage is and needs to remain a social and civil structure between men and women, and our opposition to the recent state law legalizing gay marriage.

That law was not subject to public referendum and the governor (John Lynch) who signed it was elected after telling voters that he was opposed to gay marriage. Indeed, in no state where the public has been allowed a direct vote on the subject has gay marriage prevailed.

We are not "anti-gay." We are for marriage remaining the important man-woman institution it has always been.

While the law sanctions gay marriage, it neither demands that churches perform them or that our First Amendment right to choose what we print be suspended. In accordance with that right, we continue our longstanding policy of printing letters to the editor from New Hampshire citizens, whether or not they agree with us."

Translation: We are bigots, openly so. We didn't get to vote to maintain our bigotry, so we will maintain it in protest.

Laws? We don't need no stinkin' laws

It was a YouTube moment that John Scamlon probably would prefer to forget: Scamlon, dressed in a Gumby costume and waving to passersby on Miller Road, is attacked and kicked in the groin by another man.

But that YouTube video was the key to locating and arresting the attacker, thanks to some out-of-the-box thinking and online research by a Flint Township Police Department communications officer.

New Hampshire's The Union Leader: Vile Homophobes of the Day

Some are going to make gays suffer, no matter what.

...NH is one of 4 New England states that allow gay marriage. Simple enough, right? Other than the regular wedding planning last minute concerns- finding a caterer, designing and execution of the decor elements, creating a personal experience for everyone there, their wedding plans were falling into place nicely.

The wedding is this Saturday and I received a phone call from Greg yesterday letting me know that he tried to get their wedding announced in the Union Leader, since Greg was from the Manchester, NH area. He was told that they don’t allow gay weddings to be announced and he asked to talk to the editor. The editor simply told him it has been the “policy of the newspaper” and that as the editor, he has the right to print whatever he’d like

In fact “it is among the earliest examples of writings that we know of so far,” according to the institute’s director, Gil J. Stein, and it provides insights into the life of one of the world’s oldest cultures.

Westfield High School: Idiots of the Day

Some so called "educators" are clueless and even damaging in the extreme.

Westfield High School in Fairfax County is one of the largest and most competitive public schools in America. It is not unusual that 180 sophomores enrolled in Advanced Placement World History this year, more students than most U.S. high schools have taking AP courses of any kind.

What did surprise some Westfield students and their parents was a sheet titled "Expectations of Integrity" included in the materials handed out by the three AP World History teachers. Their No. 1 rule discouraged random outbreaks of curiosity:

"You are only allowed to use your OWN knowledge, your OWN class notes, class handouts, your OWN class homework, or The Earth and Its Peoples textbook to complete assignments and assessments UNLESS specifically informed otherwise by your instructor.''

That was not all. Students could not use anything they found on the Internet. They were not permitted even to discuss their assignments with friends, classmates, neighbors, parents, relatives or siblings.

What about complete strangers? The teachers had thought of that. "You may not discuss/mention/chat/hand signal/smoke signal/Facebook/IM/text/email to a complete stranger ANY answers/ideas/questions/thoughts/opinions/hints/instructions." The words were playful, but the teachers were serious. Any violations, they said, would mean a zero on the assignment and an honor code referral.

Google broke laws on an international scale

According to a report published by the Canadian Privacy Commissioner, Jennifer Stoddart, the world’s largest online search engine, Google, inadvertently violated Canadian privacy laws by erroneously collecting personal information from citizens while the company mapped Canadian streets for its popular Google Street View service in 2008.

The company uses specialized vehicles equipped with advanced camera technologies, GPS, and wireless devices to map cities around the world.

While the vehicles were traveling throughout Canada, the wireless devices on the Google vehicles connected to personal unsecured WiFi networks, collecting personal information, including, without limitation, complete email conversations, user names and passwords.

According to the investigation, the erroneous error was made in 2006 when a Google programmer developed a side project of software that was designed to sample public WiFi data that included the capability to collect personal information.

That project was never forwarded to any internal committee for review, and the company maintains it was not aware of any wrongdoing.

And this "side project" was used across the globe? I call bullshit.

Glee's Halloween episode, in which the Gleeks do Rocky Horror Picture Show, has sparked a lot of press attention. And now it turns out the show's creator, Ryan Murphy, is actually in talks to remake the movie.

The sheer awfulness of this idea insures that it will actually happen. Considering the audience that watches Glee and their cluelessness re popular culture, it's a shoe in.

Quebec rushes to tweak its unjust language laws

Quebec is such a small, provincial place that no one gives a fuck about their unjust language laws.

Suppressing a minority so the majority can feel comfortable is hard work, but someone's gotta do it.

Quebec Premier Jean Charest has called an emergency legislative sitting and debate on Monday to force the passage of controversial language legislation.

The Liberal government is poised to invoke closure and use its majority at the national assembly to override opposition parties and adopt Bill 103. The legislation would impose new limits on eligibility for Quebec's English public school system, replacing an older law the Supreme Court of Canada declared unconstitutional last year.

Constable "Bubbles" Joseph: Massive Idiot of the Day

You will be made fun of, Bubbles, now and for the rest of your life. You'd better start dealing with it now.

I urge all of you to repost this video. The Tin Pots of the World have to learn they can't pull this shit as easily as they were used to.

A Toronto police officer whose stiff upper lip made him an inadvertent YouTube sensation and a symbol of police heavy-handedness at the G20 protests has launched a $1.2-million defamation lawsuit against the website.

Constable Adam Josephs was nicknamed “Officer Bubbles” after a video surfaced of him online admonishing a young protester during the summit for blowing bubbles.

Just a wee note to Constable Joseph: you've just made your situation 100X worse, and now the entire world knows.

Well done moron.

"He also seeks to compel YouTube to reveal the identities of the person who created and posted the cartoon..."

Why, so he can harass them too? The man's a menace.


Hey Bubble pot, meet kettle: “This level of ridicule goes beyond what is reasonable,” James Zibarras said. “The reason we brought the lawsuit is that people have the right to protect themselves against this kind of harassment.”

REPEAT: people have the right to protect themselves against this kind of harassment

It's because of uneducated liberals that the Tea Party is seen as crazy, racist and dumb

That's the premise of one Peter Kerkowitz, professional idiot and probable Birther.

Highly educated people say the darndest things, these days particularly about the tea party movement. Vast numbers of other highly educated people read and hear these dubious pronouncements, smile knowingly, and nod their heads in agreement. University educations and advanced degrees notwithstanding, they lack a basic understanding of the contours of American constitutional government.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman got the ball rolling in April 2009, just ahead of the first major tea party rallies on April 15, by falsely asserting that "the tea parties don't represent a spontaneous outpouring of public sentiment. They're AstroTurf (fake grass-roots) events."

Having learned next to nothing in the intervening 16 months about one of the most spectacular grass-roots political movements in American history, fellow Times columnist Frank Rich denied in August of this year that the tea party movement is "spontaneous and leaderless," insisting instead that it is the instrument of billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch.

Rather than correct the foolish statement (being gay is a "lifestyle choice") made by someone he was interviewing, he just says:

Contrary to the caustic comments on websites like firedoglake, I know Jarrett knows better than this. That's why I didn't correct her or ask her to explain herself during our sit-down at the White House. But viewers don't know her heart. They just know that what she said was offensive.

UBS won't take action against its criminal former bosses because it might hurt its "good name"

Gee, why can't I be in banking, or a CEO or in government, so that my criminal actions that cost billions can go unpunished too?

It's good to be King.

UBS sought to brush its disastrous performance during the financial crisis under the carpet yesterday by admitting mistakes but ruling out any legal action against its former bosses.

The bank said that while there were grounds for it to pursue them through the civil courts, it had decided to take no action, in part because court cases would generate negative public relations and prevent the restoration of its "good name".

They really are clueless.

Changing Education Paradigms

Toronto Police admit they can't read

I know I know, it must have been hard to read under all that new butched up riot gear they were wearing....the 1 billion dollar price tag didn't include Hooked on Phonics.

The head of the civilian board overseeing the Toronto Police says the force may have made a mistake by not telling the public they’d mischaracterized the powers police had during the G20 summit.

“That may be one of the communication issues to be looked at,” police board chair Alok Mukherjee said in an interview Wednesday, “whether the correction was properly notified to the public.”

It was the provincial Ministry of Community Safety that notified police Friday afternoon that the police force and its chief were misinterpreting a controversial amendment the province passed to help police secure the area around the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Police had thought the temporary amendment to the Public Works Protection Act meant they could demand identification from, and search or arrest without warrant, anyone within five metres of the fence encircling the security perimeter.

It didn’t: The amendment, which lasted from June 21 through June 28, only governed what they could do within the fenced area.

Best bullshit:

“There was an honest misinterpretation by people who were dealing with these matters in the midst of the heat of the moment,” Mr. Mukherjee said.

“It was the government, the minister of community safety, that realized that there was a misinterpretation. And they drew it to the attention of the staff and they then advised the chief right away. … There was no willful misinterpretation. There was no intent to mislead anybody.

That statement alone bristles with "intent to mislead"

Canada is the freest country on earth..except when it embarrasses us

Welcome to Harper's Canada

Alex Hundert’s words will not appear in this story.

Unlike other Canadians, he’s not allowed to speak to the press.

At least that’s how a court interpreted the new bail conditions placed on Hundert, an accused ringleader of violence during the G20 summit in June.

“It’s staggering in its breadth,” said John Norris, Hundert’s lawyer. “I’ve never heard of anything as broad as that.”

Hundert, 30, faces three counts of conspiracy pertaining to G20 activities, and was released in July on $100,000 bail with about 20 terms, including not participating in any public demonstration.

Shortly after his release, the Crown filed an appeal to revoke his bail. Superior Court Justice Todd Ducharme ruled against that appeal.

On Sept. 17, shortly after Ducharme’s decision, Hundert was arrested for participating in a panel discussion at Ryerson University — which police deemed to be a public demonstration.

On Wednesday Hundert agreed to the new, more stringent, bail conditions.

They include a clarification of the no-demonstration rule, to include a restriction on planning, participating in, or attending any public event that expresses views on a political issue.

A History Of Scotland

Alleged Fat F*ck Rob Ford sued for having a big mouth

The owner of a Beaches pub that scored a controversial sole-sourced deal with the city has made good on his promise to sue Rob Ford.

The mayoral front-runner was served with a $6-million defamation lawsuit on Tuesday, his campaign confirmed.

“The claim is in the hands of Rob’s lawyers, who will advise him on further actions,” spokeswoman Adrienne Batra said.

George Foulidis of Tuggs, Inc., which owns the Boardwalk Pub, alleges in his statement of claim that the Etobicoke councillor blackened Mr. Foulidis’s reputation by suggesting he paid money under the table in exchange for a 20-year contract extension with the municipal government.

Lee Siegel: When idiots without historical knowledge write

According to Mr. Siegel, the Beat poets are like the Tea Party..

Yeah, that's what he thinks....

The counterculture of the late 1950s and early 1960s appears to be everywhere these days. A major exhibition of Allen Ginsberg’s photography just closed at the National Gallery in Washington. A superb book, by the historian Sean Wilentz, about Ginsberg’s dear friend and sometime influence Bob Dylan recently made the best-seller list. “Howl,” a film about Ginsberg and the Beats, opened last month. And everywhere around us, the streets and airwaves hum with attacks on government authority, celebrations of radical individualism, inflammatory rhetoric, political theatrics.

In other words, the spirit of Beat dissent is alive (though some might say not well) in the character of Tea Party protest.

His premise is too stupid for words, but he tries anyway...

Tribune Co.: Idiots of the Day

Days after Tribune Co.’s corporate management was characterized in a newspaper article as fostering a sexist “frat house” atmosphere, one of its top executives sent a company-wide e-mail with links to off-color satirical videos.

Among the videos was one the executive, Lee Abrams, labeled “Sluts” in which a gyrating woman appeared to pour liquor on her bare breasts.

Abrams, chief innovation officer of Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Tribune, apologized “to everyone who was offended” in another company-wide e-mail Tuesday.

Which usually means: "Sheesh, we found it funny, get a life..."

Digging For Britain - The Anglo-Saxons

Cinema Blend's Josh Tyler: Idiot of the Day

In a classic case of Epically Missing the Point, Cinema Blend's Josh Tyler defends the use of "gay" as an insult in the new Vince Vaughn, uh hum, movie...

The larger issue is its presence in the movie, where it makes gay people the butt of a joke and uses language that denigrates us for a laugh.” Except that’s untrue. It doesn’t make gay people the butt of a joke. The trailer pretty clearly says the word isn’t being used in reference to gay people at all. Electric cars are the butt of the joke.

And there we have it folks, Mr. Tyler doesn't get it, totally and completely.

So the phrases "that's so nigger" or "that's so spic" would just be jokes about electric cars too.

Mr. Tyler, you are a moron.

It costs the Lower Merion School District $610,000 to learn students are people too

And the fucking lawyer took home $425,000 of this...

A Philadelphia-area school district has agreed to pay $610,000 to settle two lawsuits over secret photos taken on school-issued laptops.

The Lower Merion School District admits it captured thousands of webcam photographs and screen shots from student laptops in a misguided effort to locate missing computers.

Lower Merion High School student Blake Robbins, then 15, charged in an explosive civil-rights lawsuit filed in February that the district used its remote tracking technology to spy on him inside his home. Later evidence unearthed in the case showed that he was photographed 400 times in a two-week period, sometimes as he slept in his bedroom, according to his lawyer, Mark Haltzman.

The settlement calls for Robbins to get $175,000 and a second student who filed suit, Jalil Hassan, to get $10,000. Their lawyer, Mark Haltzman, will get $425,000 for his work on the case.

Apple, there's a word for that - Arrogant


Apple has just been granted a trademark for the phrase, "There's an app for that."

The company is notoriously protective over words, names, and phrases related to its brand. For example, one developer saw his app, iPodRip, rejected because Apple felt its name was came too close to its iPod trademark. Apple CEO Steve Jobs allegedly told the developer, who had appealed to the chief executive via email, "Change your apps name. Not that big of a deal."

Harper and Co. cook the books to promote their jail fetish

Conservatives, tho they would deny it, are some of the most cowardly, fear filled people on earth.

Crime statistics have become a hot topic of debate in federal politics recently.

The Conservative government has suggested that figures showing a declining crime rate are not accurate because fewer people are reporting crimes committed against them.

"The crime isn't going down," Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said Oct. 6 at an announcement for a $155.5-million expansion of prisons in Ontario and Quebec. "It is still unacceptably high. Canadians should not be subjected to that kind of crime rate."

The Opposition Liberals, meanwhile, have accused the government of denying the statistics and trying to use crime to scare voters.

How else can conservatives govern?

Harper and Co. are hypocrites? How shocking...

In plain language, if the document exists within a Prime Minister's Office or a minister's office, you can't have it. The fear, of course, is that governments use this provision as a cover to hide documents. If it's embarrassing, or potentially politically explosive, punt it upstairs to a minister's office and rest easy.

What's interesting about the appeal court ruling is that the government lawyers were arguing, not for Jean Chrétien and the Liberals, but for the new government, Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. And this brings us to the delicious, startling and ironic aspect of this court case. Lawyers representing the Harper government are arguing that the government should keep secret the very records the old Reform Party's Laurie Throness was fighting for back in 1999. Perhaps this is why government lawyers refused requests for interviews after they argued their case before the Supreme Court of Canada yesterday.

Hitler learns about Rich Lott's SS photos


Note to the Supreme Court of Canada: Are you f*cking nuts?

Welcome to Harper's Canada, helping make life just that bit more unpleasant every day.

What's the lesson here? (beside the fact we have to watch Harper like a hawk, the man's a menace)

Guilty until proven innocent?

Say nothing, absolutely nothing during questioning? This seems to be the only safe route.

Police are winning the unceasing war over the rights of suspected criminals on a major battleground – the Supreme Court of Canada.

In a ruling full of friction between a bare majority of judges wanting to avoid hampering officers in their work and a minority fighting for the rights of the accused, the court said on Friday that while suspects have a right to consult a lawyer and to be informed of that right, they don’t have a right to legal counsel while they are being interrogated.

This just screams injustice, but given the current climate, it will stand...

History lesson of the day kids: just because a government says something is legal and right, it ain't necessary so...

Carl Paladino: Vile Homophobe of the Day

It's actually good these people rant and rave, let's us see them for what they are.

Scary thing is, they actually think of themselves as the good guys.

New York's Republican gubernatorial nominee Carl Paladino appeared on several morning talk shows on Monday to defend his remarks to Orthodox Jewish leaders over the weekend, in which he said that children shouldn't be "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option." Paladino stood by his comments but insisted that he is not homophobic and would hire LGBT individuals into his administration if he is elected.

He, like many of his kind, think it's an "option". Moron.

It gets worse, so read on if you are brave enough...

Toronto is world mindless violence

Another weekend, more shooting. This is something Toronto keeps from the tourist brochures.

Behind an apartment building at 605 Whiteside Place is The Dreamers Peace Garden, an homage to lives lost in violent crimes in Regent Park and a symbol of hope for the future.

But in front, a pool of blood and police tape show that violence still plagues one of Toronto’s most troubled communities.

Sealand White, 15, and Jermaine Derby, 19, are dead after being gunned down in Regent Park. It’s the city’s second double homicide in as many weeks.

F.B.I.: Idiots of the Day

Hi, we've been illegally tracking your car with a GPS give it back or *you're* the one in trouble

A California student got a visit from the FBI this week after he found a secret GPS tracking device on his car, and a friend posted photos of it online. The post prompted wide speculation about whether the device was real, whether the young Arab-American was being targeted in a terrorism investigation and what the authorities would do.

It took just 48 hours to find out: The device was real, the student was being secretly tracked and the FBI wanted its expensive device back, the student told in an interview Wednesday.

The answer came when half-a-dozen FBI agents and police officers appeared at Yasir Afifi’s apartment complex in Santa Clara, California, on Tuesday demanding he return the device.

Idiot judge Talmadge Littlejohn unclear on what freedom means

"with liberty and justice for all"

Now say it or I throw your ass in jail...

Attorney Danny Lampley of Oxford was out of the Lee County Jail after more than 4 1/2 hours of thinking about why he refused to recite the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance today.

Chancellor Talmadge Littlejohn ordered Lampley jailed shortly after court began in Tupelo this morning.

Eyewitnesses said Littlejohn asked the court audience to rise and repeat the pledge. Lampley rose but failed to vocalize the words to the pledge, an act he has done before, apparently to the judge's consternation.

Jail records show Lampley was brought in about 9:40 a.m. and released about 2:30 p.m. on the judge's orders.

They both were back in chancery court during the afternoon.

Nobel sends a big F*CK YOU to China

Scummy dictatorship China has a slight embarrassment on its hands, on a global scale.


The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Liu Xiaobo, a leading Chinese dissident who is serving an 11-year prison term after repeatedly calling for human rights and democratization, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced Friday.

Liu was sentenced in 2009 for inciting subversion of state power. He is the co-author of Charter 08, a call for political reform and human rights, and was an adviser to the student protesters at Tiananmen Square in 1989.

Of course, China hauls out their usual response when someone stands up to their bullshit:

A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said the awarding of the prize to Liu was "blasphemy against the peace prize" that could harm relations between China and Norway.

It's getting old China, it's getting old.

Rufus F: When idiots without historical knowledge write

Right wingers should never ever try their hand at historical overviews, they don't have the talent or the desire to get facts correct.

Observe this:

The mythos about the sixties culture wars is that they resulted inevitably from the conformist fifties culture, and yet it’s hard to see Eisenhower’s America as any more conformist than Obama’s. It’s hard to imagine that the generation that embraced television was somehow more stultified or less inspired than that which embraced the Internet. As then, the truly important questions are inappropriate for mixed company. To each his own “lifestyle”.

Let me guess, Rufus is a Christian white hetero male, under the age of 30...

I know right wingers lament the current age, and wish a return to a perceived "simpler time", but wtf

Firefighters in Obion County, Tennessee do Crassus proud

From the bio of Crassus c 115 BC - 53 BC:
The rest of Crassus' wealth was acquired more conventionally, through traffic in slaves, the working of silver mines, and judicious purchases of land and houses, especially those of proscribed citizens. Most notorious was his acquisition of burning houses: when Crassus received word that a house was on fire, he would arrive and purchase the doomed property along with surrounding buildings for a modest sum, and then employ his army of 500 clients to put the fire out before much damage had been done. Crassus' clients employed the Roman method of firefighting—destroying the burning building to curtail the spread of the flames.

Imagine your home catches fire but the local fire department won't respond, then watches it burn. That's exactly what happened to a local family tonight.

A local neighborhood is furious after firefighters watched as an Obion County, Tennessee, home burned to the ground.

The homeowner, Gene Cranick, said he offered to pay whatever it would take for firefighters to put out the flames, but was told it was too late. They wouldn't do anything to stop his house from burning.

Each year, Obion County residents must pay $75 if they want fire protection from the city of South Fulton. But the Cranicks did not pay.

The mayor said if homeowners don't pay, they're out of luck.

This fire went on for hours because garden hoses just wouldn't put it out. It wasn't until that fire spread to a neighbor's property, that anyone would respond.

Turns out, the neighbor had paid the fee.

Norwegian archaeologists find 'mini-Pompeii'

The most well-preserved pottery from the Stone Age ever found in Norway has turned up in an unspoiled dwelling site not far from Kristiansand. The find is considered an archaeological sensation.

The discovery of a “sealed” Stone Age house site from 3500 BC has stirred great excitement among archaeologists from Norway’s Museum of Cultural History at the University in Oslo. The settlement site at Hamresanden, close to Kristiansand’s airport at Kjevik in Southern Norway, looks like it was covered by a sandstorm, possibly in the course of a few hours.

The catastrophe for the Stone Age occupants has given archaeologists an untouched “mini-Pompeii,” containing both whole and reparable pots.

Montreal police visit Facebook posting possible psycho

Strange little man posts pics of guns and issues what seem to be threats on Facebook...

Family shocked, shocked I tell you that the police just might take an interest...


Oh, that and the fact the gun registry told police there were 5, count 'em, 5 guns at this person's abode...

Joseph and Michele Abitbol were awakened at 3 a.m. Saturday by the sudden commotion of two police cars outside their Montreal home, a SWAT team and a bus, which they’d soon learn was there to ferry neighbours away from the Abitbol’s 28-year-old son.

David Abitbol, who goes by the name David Darkiller on Facebook, is to appear Monday at the Montreal courthouse for a bail hearing, after being charged Saturday with one count of uttering death threats against former classmates and teachers, and one of improper storage of a firearm — meaning Abitbol’s guns weren’t locked up.

Former Governor General Michaëlle Jean to blame we are still stuck with Harper

A constitutional scholar who advised Michaëlle Jean during the 2008 parliamentary crisis says Prime Minister Stephen Harper gave the Governor General certain commitments ahead of her decision to grant his request for prorogation.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper arriving at Rideau Hall on Dec. 4, 2008, to meet with Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean. (Adrian Wyld/Canadian Press)The revelation by Peter Russell comes amid a sea of praise for Jean as she departed Rideau Hall this week following a five-year term as Governor General. But at the time of the crisis, many questioned her decision to grant Harper a reprieve from a House of Commons confidence vote that his minority Conservative government would almost certainly have lost.

Why can't I be a religion so I too don't have to pay taxes?

Besides the fact this form of Druidism has little or nothing to do with its ancient form..

"While sacrifice is a core notion within most spiritual traditions, within Druidry it is confused by historical accounts of the killing of both human and animal victims," the network said in its application to the British commission. "No such practice is deemed acceptable within modern Druidry."

Nice to know, but why the fuck do religions not have to pay taxes?

Sweet fucking deal if you ask me.

Britain recognized Druidry, an ancient belief that worships deities that take different forms in nature, as a religion for the first time and gave it charitable status on Saturday.

"There is a sufficient belief in a supreme being or entity to constitute a religion for the purposes of charity law," declared the Charity Commission for England and Wales in response to the Druid Network's application.

The decision will give the neo-pagan religion, known for its cloaked worshippers at Stonehenge (above, in 1999) and other sites, tax advantages and is expected to lead to broader acceptance.
