What The Fuck?

Perino: "We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term" | Media Matters for America
Perino: "We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term"

Go watch the video. This is fucking delusional. Neither Hannity not Varney called her on her obvious bullshit. I am again reduced to sputtering.

From the "I Pulled These Numbers Out Of My Ass" Department

Statistics on homosexuals
Some statistics about the Homosexual lifestyle:

* One study reports 70% of homosexuals admitting to having sex only one time with over 50% of their partners (3).

* One study reports that the average homosexual has between 20 and 106 partners per year (6). The average heterosexual has 8 partners in a lifetime.

* Many homosexual sexual encounters occur while drunk, high on drugs, or in an orgy setting (7).

* Many homosexuals don't pay heed to warnings of their lifestyles: "Knowledge of health guidelines was quite high, but this knowledge had no relation to sexual behavior" (16).

* Homosexuals got homosexuality removed from the list of mental illnesses in the early 70s by storming the annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) conference on successive years. "Guerrilla theater tactics and more straight-forward shouting matches characterized their presence" (2). Since homosexuality has been removed from the APA list of mental illnesses, so has pedophilia (except when the adult feels "subjective distress") (27).

* Homosexuals account for 3-4% of all gonorrhea cases, 60% of all syphilis cases, and 17% of all hospital admissions (other than for STDs) in the United States (5). They make up only 1-2% of the population.
There is little I can say about this because other than the fact that it goes on and on. A lot of the sources are very old at best and questionable at worst. One of them was about AIDS being a result of a type of sperm allergy. The nice thing about science is that it is largely self correcting. Sadly the same cannot be said about stupidity.

Scenes From SinglesLand

As anyone that has heard me whine about it my faithful readers know, I am single and yes I do wander around online dating sites. Folks will also recall that I am often confused by other people's profiles. Here is the latest one that made me say WTF.
I am not interested in anyone over the age of 45. If you are over the age of 45 please do not write to me. Now that I have gotten that out of the way....Hi.
Now, truth be told I AM over 45 so I am hard pressed to complain about it because the profile did succeed in making me not want to "connect" with them but is that REALLY all they have to say about themselves?

Full disclosure, and not a surprise to anyone I am sure, my profile is SLIGHTLY longer than that. Of course since I am a 47 (damn near 48) year old man, it obviously requires slightly more of a sales pitch. Hmm, maybe I should put a note in that I absolutely will not date anyone less than a "9". Would get me some fun hate mail anyway.

And no, I don't wonder why I am single.

This is not a joke

Harmon Leon - The Infiltrator – Only Christian Side Hugs Before Marriage! - True/Slant
Yes, now it’s abstinence only for Christian teens when it comes to hugs. The basic message is that “front hugs” should be saved until marriage, This is told to us while using a lot of ghetto rap hand motions. (”Word!”) I think the fear here is if teens give each other a “full frontal hug” it’s leads towards the Satanic road of no return of crotch-to-crotch dry humping. The next thing you know, you’ll be on that slippery slope of supporting gay marriage and believing dinosaur bones aren’t a test from God. Best to keep it safe with a “side hug” (at least until one is declared man and wife). When the hell did the Christian church put out the memo about the inappropriate frontal hug!?
Just Kill Me. I mean honestly. As you can see, I am reduced to mere sputtering.

Psalm 109:8--A Prayer for Obama or Ourselves? - Progressive Revival
November 23, 2009 12:13 AM

Obama is not a Christian , thats why he declared our nation a none Christian nation. But He can't stop the Christians from praying . He can't stop our be leafs in GOD ! But using the bible and prayers in a harmful way upon anyone is wrong ! True Obama is doing nothing good for this country and the people. True he is Muslim , But thats his choice . When you pray its all to one God the same God. No matter what ( He ) God is called in different religions around the world. True the Muslim bible is taken in the wrong context and these people commit crimes and suicide and kill in be leaf that they will be rewarded , All wrong ! But to pray for the demise of any human being is wrong and prayer should never Ever be used that way. I don't agree with anything Obama is doing. But why not pray the God intervene and turn Obama in the right direction for this country . That would be the good way to pray .
It truly frightens me that people believe this much bullshit. Oddly enough, they are often marginally literate, ignorant of history and nearly always consider themselves good Christians. None of the truly good Christians that I know would be this delusional.

I am sure that, since "Marie" says it is wrong to pray for someone to be killed, she thinks she is a good Christian. I don't.

Why I never say anything on FB that I wouldn't say to someone's face

Canadian woman fights insurance giant after benefits cut over Facebook photos --
BROMONT, Quebec (AP) — A Canadian woman on long-term sick leave for depression says she lost her benefits because her insurance agent found photos of her on Facebook in which she appeared to be having fun.
Besides the fact that there is a common misconception about what depression is (and the rest of the article shows this) this illustrates why I say what I do about online life. Be yourself, no matter who that person is, or don't be online. If your actions can be misconstrued then don't post pictures of you doing them online.

I say some obnoxious and rude things online and share details of my life that are uncomfortable for me to type and possibly uncomfortable for others to read, there is no doubt of that. One friend of my calls that ballsy, I just call it being me. It is true that there can be, and have been, repercussions because of online activities.

Having said that, Manulife is a herd of weasels if this was in any way part of a decision to rescind this woman's disability benefits. Being in the midst of a major depressive episode doesn't mean that you have to lie in bed all day and rot. There are days when you almost feel like a real person, and when you have those days you SHOULD get out and try to enjoy it because FSM knows when the next of those days comes along. Anyone at an insurance company that seriously thinks that it would be fun to FAKE long term psychiatric illness (which a year of depression would be) needs to get a clue. You would have to be a psychopath to be able to fake it consistently over that long a period of time and there is no way I would want THAT person working beside me thanks.

Free Advice For Google

Microsoft has had discussions with News Corp over a plan that would involve the media company’s being paid to “de-index” its news websites from Google, setting the scene for a search engine battle that could offer a ray of light to the newspaper industry.
Don't object to Microsoft and News Corp getting into bed together. Murdoch and Ballmer deserve each other and it will be entertaining to see how quickly the relationship devolves into backbiting and stupidity. I will supply the popcorn.
