Think you missed the point

Though I have no idea what points Sinead and Annie were making and don't care enough to look it up.

Providing a context for those of us less willing to do a google search would be appreciated and might bring forth other opinions.

Catchy Feely Twerky Monkey

very perceptive, SL. the beauty of google search, for those not up-to-date with their pop princesses.

sex, sexuality, sexual imagery and nudity is NORMAL.
people can hurt others due to lack of guidance, wayward/absent parenting, oppression and frustration. although this doesn't account for persons brought up in a loving, cultured, educated environment who commit appalling crimes against women. this is an area for cognitive neuroscience, not finger-pointing and scapegoats.
images of the body, of healthy celebration and of one of the most beautiful, pleasurable and fulfilling acts that human beings can enjoy and share with one another needs to be put into context. you don't throw the baby out with the bath water.

how demonstrably and utterly shameful to demonise a 20 year girl.

for the sake of clarity....

I googled Sinead O' Conner and Annie Lennox and both have been in the news very recently due to strongly vocalizing their opinions about the recent Miley Cyrus "performance" at the VMA's and the exploitation of women in a pornographic sense by the music industry. Not taking sides here by any means, and I can't speak for RL, but I'm pretty sure that this is what he has been referring to; not name calling to Anna.

Anywhoooo....has anyone out there had a current event with chocolope? Looks yummy! :)))))

FBI calls half of populace with 9/11 doubts potential terrorist

Go to the following link for the whole story. Chilling, very chilling. Its starting to feel like the 30s in Germany...

The FBI is instructing local police departments and "communities against terrorism" to consider anyone who harbors "conspiracy theories" about 9/11 to be a potential terrorist, in a circular released to local police departments.

The memo thus adds 9/11-official-story skeptics to a growing list of targets described by federal law enforcement to be security threats, such as those who express "libertarian philosophies," "Second Amendment-oriented views," interest in "self-sufficiency," "fears of Big Brother or big government," and "Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties."

A newly released national poll shows that 48 percent of Americans either have some doubts about the official account of 9/11, or do not believe it at all.

Road rage on the NYC West Side Parkway

For those who might have missed it, a motorcycle race was happening on the West Side Parkway in NYC last weekend when a road rage incident started somehow. A man in an SUV ran over a biker, and then swerved and hit another and then hit another. The bikers slowed the SUV down and stopped it. Then they smashed the driver window and pulled the guy out of his vehicle and beat him in front of his wife and one year old daughter.

Now we find out that at least two of the bikers were undercover cops. There is only one level of deep undercover that would have superseded their duty to stop this beating. Cops caught up in blood-lust?

Congratulations GTed

The one thing Congress agrees on is that the furloughed Federal workers will get their back-pay. If you didn't go camping you should have. It's not you or your wife's fault that the government is bent on going over the edge in a Thelma & Louise.
