Pharmer would post them here, but Kevin DuJan’s Blog, is worth a visit for its uniqueness and spicy flavor.
The creator of HillBuzz is Hillary Supporter turned fairly conservative, who has a snippy, gossipy style of delivering a well deserved trashing of the media and the Obama administration. Pharmer has points of agreement with Kevin, and plenty of differences. For example, we agree on not-Romney, but he prefers Gingrich. His blog style is entertaining, and dishes up some information and viewpoints which are not readily available elsewhere, so the visits there are pretty frequent.
MEMRITV is a site you can visit for a video log of what’s happening in the Middle East. Click on that site, look over to the right for video number 3272. That one tells you of the virtue police in Saudi Arabia which held 15 female students inside a burning school, and refused to allow rescue because they were not wearing the hijab, traditional headcovering. Death penalty without due process for not adhering to the dress code.
Apparently it sux to be a female in a Muslim governed society.
You can also read the transcript of this video, an interview with Saudi Journalist Nadin Al-Badir, detailing the abuses of the “Authority for the Promotion of Virtue”.
January 22 is a special day for the abortion supporters to push their cause using blogs and social media. It’s the 39th anniversary of unfettered recreational abortion brought to you by your Supreme Court.
The pro-life bloggers and their contributors are using the same day to ask them: ‘exactly what do they mean by CHOICE’? This campaign is rebirthed by Jill Stanek and friends. Feel free to join the party. If you tweet, add #tweet4choice to your effort. Use your facebook or similar accounts too! It’s good clean fun, and will drive NARAL nutz.
Troy Newman and Mark Crutcher toured a Wichita abortion clinic which had been bought out by Operation Rescue. It closed at the time of the buyout, and the tour in this video occurred a couple weeks later, in August 2006. Though the clinic was certified as being compliant with National Abortion Federation standards in 2005, by 2006 it was in bad shape.
This proposed Microsoft app, allowing travelers to dodge high crime areas, might have been invented by a techie who only wants to look at pretty things, or perhaps one who had been traumatized by a mugging or carjacking. Pharmer imagines it could serve lefties who want to keep dreaming that LBJ’s Great Society plans actually produced good results.
Multiple headlines came to the mind of your humble blogger.
NAACP assumes that high crime areas = increased Black population areas. Their Official is caught complaining that an app to divert travelers from crime ridden areas means they’re seeking to avoid neighborhoods of predominantly blacks.
Avoid Ghettos App will keep you off of MLK Boulevards. No lie, the NAACP president in Dallas said THIS: “Can you imagine me not being able to go to MLK Blvd. because my GPS says that’s a dangerous crime area? I can’t even imagine that,” .. as if the app dictates where you go.
Just about every sizable city has a road named after Martin Luther King. Pharmer knows the one in Cincinnati end to end, from traveling it before and after it got that name, through high school, the years of research, and pharmacy school, etc. There’s not an app that would keep the rural dwelling pharmacist from driving there, for example to get to the concert she attended in October, just off of that boulevard. What is wrong with Juanita Wallace? She got herself in news that would travel nationwide, dumping on MLK neighborhoods across the country because she apparently views the one in Dallas as a crime ridden area.
NAACP Dallas President Reflexively Connects Crime With Black Neighborhoods. “It’s almost like gerrymandering….It’s stereotyping for sure and without a doubt; I can’t emphasize enough, it’s discriminatory.” Said Ms. Wallace.
The app is designed to avoid murder theft, rape, dope pushers,etc. not Black people. It’s Wallace who is making the connection. Other interviewees are speaking about how the economy of higher crime portions of the cities will take another hit from loss of business and tourism. The one talking about stereotyping is the one doing the stereotyping.
Take the ADVANCEMENT out of that acronym. With representation like that, who needs enemas!
America needs the NAACP like it needs RINOs. USELESS!
Pharmer is inclined to side with the likes of Google and Facebook and Wikipedia on this one. The government has created unfunded mandates for all large websites, search engines, etc. which open themselves to contributors, to monitor everything that is placed on their site, or face removal (unsearchability) due to copyright infringement.
The SOPA language is written in a way to allow the removal of any site the government chooses to eliminate. Copyright infringement does not have to be established before the sites are removed. It is damaging to business and to free speech.
