Jeanine Pirro of Fox News came under heavy criticism last weekend for her remarks about Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota representative in the United States House of Congress.
Ms. Pirro made numerous good points. Yet, only one tidbit among her ten minute video editorial was picked up by other media outlets to be aired and declared as a racist rant. Pirro questioned Omar’s wearing of the hijab: “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Shariah law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”
This blog is inspired by a recent news article I read, and posted, about the Pope’s anniversary being marked with the sentencing of convicted child molester, George Pell. The last sentence in the article reads, “And in the U.S., a Gallup poll found 37 percent of U.S. Catholics question remaining in the church.” –Associated Press.
WTF!? What is there to think about?
Yet, I have seen many documentaries where abused children who are now adults still question whether or not they should belong to this sick society. They can’t come to terms with their want for God and faith within the frames of this network. Even their own family members still argue for the religious cause that did their child in.
The blurby follows, but the basic gist is that Sheikh Saad Al-Hijri, a preacher type dude, said that women can’t drive because their brain is one quarter the size of a man’s brain.
This guy is fricking brilliant. I’d like to take him out for a picnic sometime, so I can pick his brain.
Dumb is dumb, and this applies to all persons. I’d actually like to tell this guy that the next time he is saying stupid shit, please leave the rest of us out of it.
Mayor R. Rex Parris of Lancaster, California wants to ban ties in his city. I’m all for it.
The tie is the most ridiculous piece of clothing, ever. Wrapping a rope around your neck is a bad move and the same goes for any piece of material. Mr. Parris is concerned about blood flow being cut off. Hear, hear, Mayor. Let’s add in the questionable act of giving your enemies a dangerous handle on your life. Even more dubious is the fact that this clothing item is basically an arrow that extends down to, and points towards a man’s penis. What does it mean?
The beautiful Bailey Davis, NFL cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints, whose team is known as the New Orleans Saintsations, claims she was fired after posting an Instagram pic of herself in lingerie.
Who cares about her photo? Well, the hypocrites do.
The NFL team’s employee handbook says: “Nude, semi-nude, or lingerie photography is strictly prohibited and terms for immediate dismissal.”
Um, excuse me, but aren’t all the cheerleaders on the field semi-nude? Does the NFL believe people are watching these scantily clad ladies bounce around for their athleticism? I think we all know what’s going on here.
Al Franken’s political career: Over. Could he go back to comedy? Probably not.
Bill Maher, known for comedy, is in hot water for reenacting Al Franken’s picture of mock-u-groping a fellow comedian. Mr. Franken’s picture was with a woman, Leeann Tweeden while Mr. Maher’s pic was with Bob Saget.
Aha, a role reversal. What could it mean? Is this political comedy or victim shaming? Does it make fun of women’s rights?
Women have a hard time being on the same par as men when they are breaking into areas where men are in power. I get it.
People are way over thinking sexuality. You are confusing yourselves and others with the Ze and Zir thing. I still think it’s an affront to truly transgender persons.
That’s great that you are adding words to the dictionary. Who doesn’t love new definitions? For schizzle my nizzle.
However, I Wilfred, am here to help everyone get back to basics.
I will agree that the English language is limited and sexist. There is sir for men which means you don’t know if that guy is married or not, what parts he has, and who he wants to have sex with. Then there is miss, missus or Mrs., truly misogynistic as we know nothing of their parts or sexuality, except that these women are single or married. Even Ms. was revised but it backfired as people thought she was an unmarried female who didn’t want to be known as such.
The whole cis / trans thing has gotten way out of hand. This stems from chemistry where a molecule has the same components, but in a different arrangement, often making for different properties.
The same can be said of men and women: Different arrangements with different chemicals flowing through their bodies, and different roles which vary widely according to the culture they live in.
Yes, there are many different types of people and sexual persuasions. There are straight people, bisexuals, lesbians, gay men, transgender persons, and transsexual persons, including true hermaphrodites physically and genetically, and the list grows on. Nowadays you can select your life altering chemicals.
Although this has been in the news for awhile, it has recently come to my perfect non-stoner attention span that the feds say one can’t own a gun if one is a marijuana user.
The fact that something is legal within a state, but illegal within the country is very American and doesn’t just apply to the substance front.
Appreciate the cauldron of loopholes, politicians, lawyers, activists and the general laymen all operating on the state side, the fed side, and the individual rights side. Stir it up and see if there is anyone that can possibly buy some pot, and a gun. Gee, I wonder. . .
