News of the Week for November 23rd, 2014
This is reminiscent of, of all things, the koala:
Barack Obama, no f**ks given.
A minor league Canadian hockey team has come under fire for a bit of tasteful cheesecake:
“There is also not a lot of enthusiasm for the cover at Haldimand-Norfolk Women’s Services in Simcoe. Executive director Jane Scheel says the cover is a classic case of a male-dominated organization dehumanizing women by reducing them to sex objects.
“‘If someone is an object, you don’t have to treat them like a human being,’ Scheel said. ‘When a woman is an object, it is a one-way relationship. You have a relationship with the object; the object doesn’t have a relationship with you.’”
Reduced to just an object. That retro-style pin-up is tasteful and respectful. Does it play upon the fact that the vast majority of men are unabashedly heterosexual? Yes. Does it reduce women to just a piece of meat? No. Appreciating the feminine form does not mean relegating a woman to a mere physical object.
A gentleman will be attracted to an attractive lady, but will try to win her over and treat her with all the respect she deserves. If anything is evocative of that, a retro-style image harkening back to the time when gentlemen were not reviled certainly would be.
Senator Ted Cruz demonstrated the timeless wisdom of the ancient Roman, Marcus Tullius Cicero, by reciting Cicero’s first oration against Catiline, with a few substitutions of names and terms such as “Obama” for “Catiline.”
Yet again, they demonstrate that Common Core is a tool to remove the last vestiges of parental involvement in their children’s education, and even use the children as a means to influence the parents:
“[Parents] are upset because the Common Core way of math leaves them unable to assist their children with homework. Throughout the country, school districts are holding special classes for parents and offering ‘homework hotlines’ to help them understand Common Core math.
“‘The kids who come to us are a clean slate,’ states Jennifer Patanella, an instructional coach with the Rochester, New York public schools who teaches parents in the strange ways of Common Core math. ‘It’s the adults who have to be retrained.’”
Obamacare was a lie meant to trick fools? All those who opposed this Frankenstein’s monster knew it. The members of Congress who voted for it, on the other hand, were indeed snookered, and one of the chief liars has been caught repeatedly boasting of how he tricked them. The man in question? Jonathan Gruber.
A quick summary to get everyone up to speed:
With all of these videos, with doubtlessly more to come, of Gruber openly boasting of the lie that is Obamacare, what other recourse is there but for those paragons of the truth known as INGSOC Universities to dispose of Gruber’s boastful admissions.
Lena Dunham’s declaration that she did to her toddler sister “anything a sexual predator might to do woo a small suburban girl” raises the question of just how f**ked up her childhood was.
Jim Hoft, over at Gateway Pundit, points out that Lena Dunham’s obsession with sex and nudity might jut have to do with growing up the daughter of a hack “artist” that is obsessed with grotesque paintings of female genitalia. His “art” will not be displayed here due to it being the type of thing a child abuse victim would draw for his or her psychologist. If you don’t value your eyes, you can view them here.
