DC Protest

I’m just now getting caught up on e-mail that came in while I was out last week. It turns out we had representation in DC on March 18 when 5,000 anti-war, Liberal, Leftist, Birkenstock-wearing, anarchist, commie, pinko pigs tried to demonstrate (and possibly disfigure monuments) --- and were met by 30,000 veterans and other sensible people who weren’t about to let any of the asshats mess something up.

BMEWS reader Rancino (in pic below, kneeling in front) and a whole bunch of his buddies made the trip and even though temps were in the teens they had a grand old time taunting the anti-war retards, daring them to get out of hand. The only question I have for Rancino is ... WHICH “Commie Traitor Bitch” were you guys referring to? There’s Jane Fonda, Cindy Sheehan, Susan Sarandon ... a whole Code-Pink-Vagina-Monologues-Shriveled-Up-Hag-Convention of them out on the Left Coast…

40 Reasons to Ban Guns NOW!

H/T to J.S. for the list

40 Reasons to Ban Guns

1. Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, Detroit & Chicago cops need guns.

2. Washington DC’s low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Indianapolis’ high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.

3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are “just statistics.”

4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994, are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates,which have been declining since 1991.

5. We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.

6. The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.

7. An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

8. A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.

9. When confronted by violent criminals, you should “put up no defense - give them what they want, or run” (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don’t Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125).

10. The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns & Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.

11. One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seat belts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon for internal medicine, a computer programmer for hard drive problems, and Sarah Brady for firearms expertise.

12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to the National Guard, which was created 130 years later, in 1917.

13. The National Guard, federally funded, with bases on federal land, using federally-owned weapons, vehicles, buildings and uniforms, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a “state” militia.

14. These phrases: “right of the people peaceably to assemble,” “right of the people to be secure in their homes,” “enumerations herein of certain rights shall not be construed to disparage others retained by the people,” and “The powers not delegated herein are reserved to the states respectively, and to the people” all refer to individuals, but “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” refers to the state.

15. “The Constitution is strong and will never change.” But we should ban and seize all guns thereby violating the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendments to that Constitution.

16. Rifles and handguns aren’t necessary to national defense! Of course, the army has hundreds of thousands of them.

17. Private citizens shouldn’t have handguns, because they aren’t “military weapons’’, but private citizens shouldn’t have “assault rifles’’, because they are military weapons.

18. In spite of waiting periods, background checks, fingerprinting,government forms, etc., guns today are too readily available, which is responsible for recent school shootings. In the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s,anyone could buy guns at hardware stores, army surplus stores, gas stations, variety stores, Sears mail order; no waiting, no background check, no fingerprints, no government forms,...and there were no school shootings.

19. The NRA’s attempt to run a “don’t touch” campaign about kids handling guns is propaganda, but the anti-gun lobby’s attempt to run a “don’t touch” campaign is responsible social activity.

20. Guns are so complex that special training is necessary to use them properly, and so simple to use that they make murder easy.

21. A handgun, with up to 4 controls, is far too complex for the typical adult to learn to use, as opposed to an automobile that only has 20.

22. Women are just as intelligent and capable as men but a woman with a gun is “an accident waiting to happen” and gun makers’ advertisements aimed at women are “preying on their fears.”

23. Ordinary people in the presence of guns turn into slaughtering butchers, but revert to normal when the weapon is removed.

24. Guns cause violence, which is why there are so many mass killings at gun shows.

25. A majority of the population supports gun control, just like a majority of the population supported owning slaves.

26. Any self-loading small arm can legitimately be considered to be a “weapon of mass destruction” or an “assault weapon.”

27. Most people can’t be trusted, so we should have laws against guns, which most people will abide by because they can be trusted.

28. The right of Internet pornographers to exist cannot be questioned because it is constitutionally protected by the Bill of Rights, but the use of handguns for self defense is not really protected by the Bill of Rights.

29. Free speech entitles one to own newspapers, transmitters, computers, and typewriters, but self- defense only justifies bare hands.

30. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the Constitution, and the NRA is bad, because it defends other parts of the Constitution.

31. Charlton Heston, a movie actor as president of the NRA, is a cheap lunatic who should be ignored. Michael Douglas, a movie actor as a representative of Handgun Control, Inc. is an ambassador for peace who is entitled to an audience at the UN arms control summit.

32. Police operate with backup within groups, which is why they need larger capacity pistol magazines than do “civilians” who must face criminals alone and therefore need less ammunition.

33. We should ban “Saturday Night Specials” and other inexpensive guns because it’s not fair that poor people have access to guns too.

34. Police officers have some special Jedi-like mastery over handguns that private citizens can never hope to obtain.

35. Private citizens don’t need a gun for self- protection because the police are there to protect them--even though the Supreme Court says the police are not responsible for their protection.

36. Citizens don’t need to carry a gun for personal protection, but police chiefs who are desk-bound administrators who work in a building filled with cops, need a gun.

37. “Assault weapons” have no purpose other than to kill large numbers of people. The police need assault weapons. You do not.

38. When Microsoft pressures its distributors to give Microsoft preferential promotion, that’s bad; but when the Federal government pressures cities to buy guns only from Smith & Wesson, that’s good.

39. Trigger locks do not interfere with the ability to use a gun for defensive purposes, which is why you see police officers with one on their duty weapon.

40. Handgun Control, Inc., says they want to “keep guns out of the wrong hands.” Guess what? You have the wrong hands.

What’s That You Say?

It is indeed a sad statement on today’s society that the best insults we can come up with are “Yo momma!” and references to combat boots. There was a time however when gentlemen elevated the dreary task of insults to an artform. At our current rate of progress (?) mankind will be reduced to grunts, howls and finger gestures in mere decades. Here is a toast to those bygone days when men were men and insults were the ne plus ultra of friendly verbal intercourse.

-- Oscar Wilde

“I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play.  Bring a friend… if you have one.”
-- George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill

“Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second… if there is one.”
-- Winston Churchill, in response

“I feel so miserable without you; it’s almost like having you here.”
-- Stephen Bishop

“He is a self-made man and worships his creator.”
-- John Bright

“I’ve just learned about his illness.  Let’s hope it’s nothing trivial.”
-- Irvin S. Cobb

“He is not only dull himself; he is the cause of dullness in others.”
-- Samuel Johnson

“He is simply a shiver looking for a spine to run up.”
-- Paul Keating

Who Is Glen Beck?

Who in heck is Glen Beck and why am I just now hearing about him? Oh, it must be because I never watch the Communist News Network (CNN). Well, whoever he is, he has the Liberals and Muslim-apologists up in arms and mad as hell at him.

I wonder why? Was it something he said ....  LOL

imageimageFlirting With Fascism on CNN Headline News
Host Glenn Beck threatens Muslims with concentration camps
(FAIR) - December 5, 2006

The New York Times (12/4/06), profiling new CNN Headline News host Glenn Beck, called him “brash” and “opinionated,” with an “unfiltered approach.” The conservative talk-radio host-turned-cable news announcer, the paper reported, “take[s] credit for saying what others are feeling but are afraid to say.”

The Times mentioned one of the things Beck has said recently, to newly elected U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), a Muslim: “Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.” But as press critic Eric Alterman pointed out (Altercation, 12/4/06), as offensive as that question is, it doesn’t begin to suggest the poisonousness of Beck’s rhetoric about Muslims.

When Beck is talking about “razor wire,” he’s talking about concentration camps—in the original sense of the word, places where masses of people are imprisoned “just based on the way you look or just based on your religion.” Despite his (perfectly accurate) observation that such camps are “Nazi, World War II wrong,” comparable to the “absolutely disgraceful” wartime internment of Japanese-Americans, Beck is clearly using the threat of such camps to coerce Muslims into behavior he approves of, like volunteering “to shoot the bad Muslims in the head.”

On his August 10 radio show, distributed by Clear Channel’s Premiere Radio Networks, Beck told listeners, “The world is on the brink of World War III,” then issued this warning:

All you Muslims who have sat on your frickin’ hands the whole time and have not been marching in the streets and have not been saying, ‘Hey, you know what? There are good Muslims and bad Muslims. We need to be the first ones in the recruitment office lining up to shoot the bad Muslims in the head.’ I’m telling you, with God as my witness… human beings are not strong enough, unfortunately, to restrain themselves from putting up razor wire and putting you on one side of it. When things—when people become hungry, when people see that their way of life is on the edge of being over, they will put razor wire up and just based on the way you look or just based on your religion, they will round you up. Is that wrong? Oh my gosh, it is Nazi, World War II wrong, but society has proved it time and time again: It will happen.

Since 9/11, Americans have gotten so fed up with the “yes, but” Muslims. The “yes, but” Muslims are the ones who show up on talkshows and in the media and say, “Yes, terrorism is bad, but"—and then they go through a list of reasons on why we should try and sympathize with people who fly planes into buildings.... If, God forbid, there’s another attack, we won’t have anymore patience for the “yes, buts.” The Muslim community better find a spokesman who isn’t a “yes, but” Muslim. They shouldn’t even understand the word “but,” because if they don’t, when things heat up, the profiling will only get worse, and the razor wire will be coming.

You want the profiling to stop? Then, here’s an idea. Stop murdering innocent people. Stop excusing the people who do. You do that for a while, and I guarantee you won’t have any more problems at the airports. Stop blowing stuff up and the world just might be your oyster. Otherwise, it’s going to be like that movie, The Siege. You remember that movie? The Muslims will see the West through razor wire if things don’t change.

Look, I’m not saying all Arabs and Muslims are anti-American. Far from it. We should get to know these people and embrace the good Muslims, and eliminate the bad ones. Here’s what I don’t know. I don’t know if the Muslim community will ever step to the plate like the Japanese-American community did during World War II. You know, it was absolutely disgraceful how we rounded innocent people up then and, sadly, history has a way of repeating itself no matter how grotesque that history might be. The Muslim community can prevent this if they act now.

P.S. By the way, FAIR and the NY TIMES wants you to write CNN and tell them to cancel Beck’s show. Good luck with that.

Politically Incorrect Bathrooms?

OK, help me out here. I don’t see what the big deal is. I’ve seen pictures of much worse, politically incorrect urinals. It’s a joke, OK? People are always coming up with ideas to keep us doofus guys from spraying down the whole bathroom. Things like this improve aim ... not to mention hand-to-eye coordination. Plus it gives us upstanding urinators something to think about besides the creepy tile wall in front if us.

The comments from the ladies protesting these “objets d’arte” are creeping me out too. They’re a wee bit too strident and angry to suit me. I’m tempted to just say ‘P--s on them’ and their stupid opinions but that would only p--s them off and I’d be thrown into Male Chauvinist Prison prior to the lynching for crimes against femininity.

Now if it were up to me I’d go after the real problem with urinals ... we need to find out who keeps leaving those big white mints in them ....

Austrian Removes ‘Sexist’ Urinals
VIENNA, Austria (AP) - October 19, 2006, 6:18 PM EDT

imageimageAn Austrian businessman announced Thursday that he would get rid of urinals shaped like a woman’s mouth from a public toilet near Vienna’s national opera, after facing pressure from politicians who demanded their removal.

The urinals, which are located in the “Opera Toilet,” a lavishly decorated public restroom, feature thick, lipsticked lips, a set of teeth and a bright red tongue. “We think that it’s tasteless, misogynistic and offensive,” Marianne Lackner, media spokeswoman for the Vienna Department of Women’s Affairs told The Associated Press.

The department, headed by Social Democrat Sonja Wehsely, said it was appealing to the owner’s good will, but was also exploring the possibility of legal action. Monika Vana, the Green Party’s spokeswoman for women’s affairs, also denounced the toilets, telling the Austria Press Agency that they are “sexist and inappropriate.”

“The owner thinks the idea (of the urinal) is funny,” Lackner said, adding that it seemed he was not prepared for the hostile reactions. Neuhold Gerhard, owner of the toilet’s operator Neuhold Gerhard Limited, said in an interview Thursday with Austrian public radio that he would remove the urinals.

“If there is such outrage in Austria then it’s not a problem,” he said. “We will remove them in the next 14 days.” Gerhard added that he thought it odd that public interest has only now been focused on the urinals, as they have been around for three years.

The urinals first made a splash during recent campaigns for national elections, as they were the only facility available near Austria’s National Opera. “The thing that surprises us the most,” Lackner said, “is that no man has ever said anything about this.”

Quote Of The Week

“I mean Cuban, Puerto Rican, they are all very hot. They have the, you know, part of the black blood in them and part of the Latino blood in them that together makes it.”

-- California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, March 3, 2006

Of course the Los Angeles Times obtained a copy of Schwarzenegger’s remarks and started a firestorm among Leftists in California who thought the governor’s words were racist. Naturally , the Governator had to issue a public apology to appease the morons. For the life of me, I cannot find anything in the statement that even remotely resembles racism. It sounds like a complement to me. When will this madness end?

Obituary

Going through childhood in the 1950’s was tough. I had no Nintendo, computer or iPod to play with. In fact, Dad didn’t buy a TV until 1956 ... and even then there were only two channels to watch - from 7:00am to station sign-off around 11:00pm. Kids like me had to fend for ourselves when it came to entertainment. I spent a lot of time at the local movie theatre, playing with friends or .... reading books.

I read voraciously ... any book I could get my hands on. For non-fiction I preferred history, biographies, war stories and science. For fiction, I had two loves: the first was science fiction from the likes of Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Arthur Clarke and all the writers in John Campbell’s stable of writers during the golden age of Sci-Fi. My second favorite fiction literature was mystery books and one name stood at the top of the list of writers in that genre - Mickey Spillane.

“I, The Jury” was the first Spillane book I picked up (paperback - .25¢) and I was hooked. I thought Mike Hammer was the coolest dude who ever walked the mean streets of the city. And he had a knockout female secretary named Velda that every boy lusted after. Hammer was a “take-no-prisoners” kind of private dick and he took no crap off of anyone. Hard and to the point, you could depend on Mike Hammer to bring the crooks to justice and in some cases he was judge, jury and executioner.

Mike Hammer has all but disappeared from today’s modern touchy-feely, pussified society. Mickey Spillane created a real character who was larger than life and he entertained an entire generation by reminding us that it’s a mean, tough world out there and sometimes you just gotta take out a crowbar and beat the living crap out of some weasel just as an example to the others. Mike Hammer was about as politically incorrect as you could get - but that was back in the days before people started getting offended at the drop of a hat.

Rest in peace, Mickey. You will be missed.

imageimageMickey Spillane
(1918-2006)


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Mickey Spillane, the macho mystery writer who wowed millions of readers with the shoot-’em-up sex and violence of gumshoe Mike Hammer, died Monday. He was 88. Spillane’s death was confirmed by Brad Stephens of Goldfinch Funeral Home in his hometown of Murrells Inlet. Details about his death were not immediately available.

After starting out in comic books, Spillane wrote his first Mike Hammer novel, “I, the Jury,” in 1946. Twelve more followed, with sales topping 100 million. Notable titles included “The Killing Man,""The Girl Hunters” and “One Lonely Night.”

Many Hammer books were made into movies, including the classic film noir “Kiss Me, Deadly” and “The Girl Hunters,” in which Spillane himself starred. Hammer stories were also featured on television in the series “Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer” and in made-for-TV movies. In the 1980s, Spillane appeared in a string of Miller Lite beer commercials.

Besides the Hammer novels, Spillane wrote a dozen other books, including some award-winning volumes for young people. Nonetheless, by the end of the 20th century, many of his novels were out of print or hard to find. In 2001, the New American Library began reissuing them. As a stylist Spillane was no innovator; the prose was hard-boiled boilerplate. In a typical scene, from “The Big Kill,” Hammer slugs a little punk with “pig eyes.”

“I snapped the side of the rod across his jaw and laid the flesh open to the bone. I pounded his teeth back into his mouth with the end of the barrel ... and I took my own damn time about kicking him in the face. He smashed into the door and lay there bubbling. So I kicked him again and he stopped bubbling.”

Mainstream critics had little use for Spillane, but he got his due in the mystery world, receiving lifetime achievement awards from the Mystery Writers of America and the Private Eye Writers of America. Spillane, a bearish man who wrote on an old manual Smith Corona, always claimed he didn’t care about reviews. He considered himself a “writer” as opposed to an “author,” defining a writer as someone whose books sell.

Spillane was born Frank Morrison Spillane on March 9, 1918, in the New York borough of Brooklyn. He grew up in Elizabeth, N.J., and attended Fort Hays State College in Kansas where he was a standout swimmer before beginning his career writing for magazines. World War II broke out and Spillane enlisted. When he came home, he needed $1,000 to buy some land and thought novels the best way to go. Within three weeks, he had completed “I, the Jury” and sent it to Dutton. The editors there doubted the writing, but not the market for it; a literary franchise began. His books helped reveal the power of the paperback market and became so popular they were parodied in movies, including the Fred Astaire musical “The Band Wagon.”

He was a quintessential Cold War writer, an unconditional believer in good and evil. He was also a rare political conservative in the book world. Communists were villains in his work and liberals took some hits as well. He was not above using crude racial and sexual stereotypes.While the Hammer books were set in New York, Spillane was a longtime resident of Murrells Inlet, a coastal community near Myrtle Beach.

He moved to South Carolina in 1954 when the area, now jammed with motels and tourist attractions, was still predominantly tobacco and corn fields. Spillane said he fell in love with the long stretches of deserted beaches when he first saw the area from an airplane.

The writer, who became a Jehovah’s Witness in 1951 and helped build the group’s Kingdom Hall in Murrells Inlet, spent his time boating and fishing when he wasn’t writing. In the 1950s, he also worked as a circus performer, allowing himself to be shot out of a cannon and appearing in the circus film “Ring of Fear.”

The home where he lived for 35 years was destroyed by the 135 mph winds of Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Married three times, Spillane was the father of four children.

Words You Cannot Use: Deviancy

Your Attention, Please! You are hereby required to remove from your vocabulary the following word as it pertains to persons of alternative lifestyle, also known as homosexuals. It seems they are offended by the term and have alerted the Politically Correct Police to that fact. The PC Police are herewith ordered to arrest and imprison anyone using the word in public. Punishment may include either 200 hours of community service or having to watch an entire season of “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” and write a report on “The Benefits of Homosexuality” of no less than twenty single-spaced typed pages, describing in detail how you think homesexuals have truly benefited mankind over the course of history.

de·vi·ant

adjective: Differing from a norm or from the accepted standards of a society.

noun: One that differs from a norm, especially a person whose behavior and attitudes differ from accepted social standards.

[Middle English deviaunt, from Late Latin dvins, dviant-, present participle of dvire, to deviate; see deviate.]

devi·ance, devi·an·cy n.

-- American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language

Deviant behavior is behavior that is a recognized violation of social norms. Formal and informal social controls attempt to prevent and minimize deviance. Crime, the violation of formally enacted law, is formal deviance while an informal social violation such as picking one’s nose is an example of informal deviance. It also means not doing what the majority does or alternatively doing what the majority does not do. For instance, behaviors caused by cultural difference can be seen as deviance. It does not necessarily mean criminal behavior.—Wikipedia

So why are we bring this to your attention? Read the news story below from the Washington Post and learn why another word has been expunged from your dictionary. We urge you not to deviate from this new verbal proclamation in any way shape or form.

Metro Board Member Fired for Comment on Gays
Friday, June 16, 2006

Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. yesterday fired Robert J. Smith, his appointee on the Metro transit authority board, for referring to gay people as sexual deviants on a cable television show. “Robert Smith’s comments were highly inappropriate, insensitive and unacceptable,” Ehrlich (R) said in a statement less than five hours after the controversy erupted during a Metro board meeting. “They are in direct conflict to my administration’s commitment to inclusiveness, tolerance and opportunity.”

At the Metro meeting, board member Jim Graham, who represents the District, had called for Smith to disavow his remarks or apologize or for Ehrlich to remove him. “As someone who cares deeply about human rights, and as an openly gay elected official . . . I cannot remain silent in the face of these comments,” Graham said, reading from a prepared statement. Smith acknowledged after the meeting that he had referred to homosexuals as “persons of sexual deviancy” during a political round-table discussion on a Montgomery County cable show that was shown on Sunday.

“Homosexual behavior, in my view, is deviant,” he said. “I’m a Roman Catholic.” Smith said his comments had been part of a discussion about a proposed ban on same-sex marriage. “The comments I make in public outside of my [Metro board job] I’m entitled to make,” he said. His personal beliefs, he said, have “absolutely nothing to do with running trains and buses and have not affected my actions or decisions on this board.”

Light Story of the Day

Boob Job Ban In Space

imageimageSky News
Women with boob jobs may be banned from Virgin’s space flights.

Bosses fear the implants may expand and burst due to cabin pressure, according to The Sun.

More than 157 people have paid £115,000 each to travel into space on the Virgin Galactic space “shuttle”.

Spokesman Will Whitehorn said: “We’ve discovered there may well be issues with breast augmentation.

“We’re not sure whether they could stand the trip - they could well explode.”

People with heart or circulation problems may also be ruled out.

The first trips are due in early 2008 and will have room for only seven or eight people.

Celebrity passengers include former Dallas actress Victoria Principal.

Virgin is also in talks to get 75-year-old Star Trek actor William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk.

Monkey Business

It is entirely possible that the “End Times” will begin with .... a cartoon. Or so it seems. We are surrounded by creatures on both sides of modern life who seem to be determined to act like children over cartoons. Is Roger Rabbit the Anti-Christ? Or is it Elmer Fudd who carries the “number of the beast”? Either way, we have Mad Muslims™ on one side screaming over Mohammed cartoons and on the other side we have the Angry Left™ screaming over pictures of .... a monkey?

Yes, dear friends of the rational world, the Liberals are outraged over a new movie starring Curious George. It seems there are all sorts of politically incorrect things going on in this dark cinematographic tale that will soon be indoctrinating your 4-year-old with many, many bad ideas. I leave it up to you. Read the article below and go read the whole editorial for more. Try to control your laughter over some of the comments made by the wacky Liberals. Then decide if the human race is really worth saving ....

Curiously, New Monkey Movie Lands In Middle Of Cultural Battle
(SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE)

For the politically correct Bay Area parent, the “Curious George” children’s books are a minefield of cultural horrors through which to tiptoe. Imperialism. Animal abuse. Bad parenting. Puh-leeeeze, George’s defenders say. They’re children’s books, whose charm has not dimmed—25 million books and countless swag sold—even if ideas about political correctness have evolved since the first George adventure was published in 1941. Sometimes a speechless, mischievous monkey is just that—a monkey, not a metaphor. Besides, George’s tales are no more un-PC than those of that royalist warmonger, Babar.

Both camps are wondering how “Curious George,” the animated movie that premieres today, will translate details of the popular series of children’s books for the more heightened sensitivities of 2006. The Curious George oeuvre was the work of the husband-and-wife team of H.A. and Margaret Rey, German Jews who escaped France with the first book’s manuscript as the Nazis invaded. Most of the seven stories they wrote feature the antics of a monkey whose sweet curiosity gets him in trouble until he’s rescued by the nameless Man with the Yellow Hat, George’s keeper/parental figure/pal with bail money.

To some, that’s the core of an unhealthy relationship. “The books are really irresponsible to me. It’s sickening, really,” said Robin Roth, managing editor of http://www.arkonline.com, an animal welfare Web site. Start with the Caucasian, gun-carrying Man with the Yellow Hat venturing to Africa (imperialism alert!) to harvest wildlife for a zoo (animal repression alert!). Continue with George being unsupervised and allowed to smoke a pipe and huff ether (bad parenting alert!), and it’s a wonder there aren’t pickets already forming around movie theaters.

Roth, a high school English teacher in Los Angeles, writes on her animal rights Web site that “Curious George” reveals “the sinister side of a corrupt wildlife trade with perilous roots in Western imperialism.” When the mischievous George is sent to jail, “the picture of the forlorn little primate alone in his cell conjures haunting images of countless monkeys lingering in laboratories, suffering silently and alone.”

That’s a bit of a stretch, say the book’s defenders, such as Frederick Meekins of the Web site http://www.theconservativevoice.com. “It’s not like George ends up being used in laboratory experimentation,” Meekins writes on his site. “From what’s depicted in the storybooks, it always looked like he had a pretty good life, as do many other zoo animals.” The filmmakers steer a middle ground in the G-rated film, scrubbing up some of the books’ more politically incorrect tones while keeping the old-school animation and simple story line.

While George still doesn’t talk, the Man with the Yellow Hat—goofily voiced by comic actor Will Ferrell—now has a name (Ted) and a more palatable backstory than being a game hunter. Sort of. He’s trying to save the museum he works for by retrieving an African idol and making it the centerpiece of a new exhibition. (Third World plundering alert!)

Ted in the film is more of George’s buddy, while the Man with the Yellow Hat in the books was more of a parental figure—and an absentee one, at that. He’d leave George in the morning, making him just another latchkey monkey with no discernible supervision. The film’s director, Matthew O’Callaghan, told The Chronicle this week that the script’s few changes from the books were made in the name of story-telling and character development.

Don’t Touch

Question: How many first-graders can even spell “S-E-X” much less “H-A-R-A-S-S-M-E-N-T”? Best I recall, at that age, I was convinced all girls had major cooties and were utterly useless creatures who played with stupid dolls (little did I know how right I was).

Now what has this school accomplished here? They have emotionally scarred this young boy for life and the little girl has learned a valuable lesson that will gain her either a promotion or a hefty sum in a lawsuit in about 20 years. Madness, I tells ya. Complete, total madness ....

First Grader Suspended for Harassment
February 8, 2006, 1:23 PM EST
BROCKTON, Mass. (AP)

A first grader was suspended for three days after school officials said he sexually harassed a girl in his class by allegedly putting two fingers inside the girl’s waistband while she sat on the floor in front of him. The boy’s mother, Berthena Dorinvil, said she “screamed” about last week’s suspension from Downey Elementary School, and added her son doesn’t know what sexual harassment is.

“He doesn’t know those things,” she told The Enterprise of Brockton. “He’s only 6 years old.” School officials declined comment to The Enterprise, citing the child’s age. “They would have not suspended the child without doing an investigation,” said spokeswoman Cynthia McNally.

Dorinvil said the school principal, Diane Gosselin, called her to pick up her son Jan. 30. She said her son asked the principal if the police were going to come get him. The principal told Dorinvil the girl complained to the teacher after her son touched the girl’s waistband, hitting her skin, in a room full of children. Dorinvil said her son told her he touched the girl’s shirt, not her skin, after the girl touched him.

Our Piggy Forefathers

Ahhh, the “good old days”. When men were men, women were women and Oink was just a little piglet. Those were the days. And it was only sixty years ago that the following management policy was in place. The only thing missing from this is a requirement that the dames wear burkhas and always walk behind their man. It seems funny nowadays but it is a good object lesson in taking history in context. You really can’t read this through 21st Century eyes with all of the associated changes in political correctness and womens liberation. Do not judge harshly the chauvinistic pigs men behind this. It was another place in another time ....

1943 - Tips on Getting More Efficiency from your Women Employees

The following is an excerpt from the July 1943 issue of Transportation Magazine. This was written for male supervisors of women in the workforce during World War II, only 60+ years ago! The intent was not to be “funny”.

1.) Pick young, married women. They usually have more of a sense of responsibility than their unmarried sisters; they’re less likely to be flirtatious; they need the work or they wouldn’t be doing it; they still have the pep and interest to work hard and to deal with the public efficiently.

2.) When you have to use older women, try to get ones who have worked outside the home at some time in their lives. Older women who have never contacted the public have a hard time adapting themselves and are inclined to be cantankerous and fussy. It’s always well to impress upon older women the importance of friendliness and courtesy.

3.) General experience indicates that “husky” girls - those who are just a little on the heavy side - are more even tempered and efficient than their underweight sisters.

4.) Retain a physician to give each woman you hire a special physical examination - one covering female conditions. This step not only protects the property against the possibilities of lawsuit, but reveals whether the employee-to-be has any female weaknesses which would make her mentally or physically unfit for the job.

5.) Give the female employee a definite day-long schedule of duties so that they’ll keep busy without bothering the management for instructions every few minutes. Women make excellent workers when they have their jobs set out for them, but they lack initiative in finding work themselves.

6.) Whenever possible, let the female employee change from one job to another at some time during the day. Women are inclined to be less nervous and happier with change.

7.) Give every girl an adequate number of rest periods during the day. You have to make for some allowances for feminine psychology. A girl has more confidence and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied, apply fresh lipstick and wash her hands several times a day.

8.) Be tactful when issuing instructions or in making criticisms. Women are often sensitive; they can’t shrug off harsh words the way men do. Never ridicule a woman - it breaks her spirit and cuts off her efficiency.

9.) Be reasonably considerate about using strong language around women. Even though a girl’s husband or father may swear vociferously, she’ll grow to dislike a place of business where she hears too much of this.

10.) Get enough size variety in operator’s uniforms so that each girl can have a proper fit. This point can’t be stressed too much in keeping women happy.

No Pig Down Under

First the Muzzies on Australia’s east coast stirred things up with recent riots and now the west coast is getting a dose. Needless to day, the Aussies aren’t too happy with the Muzzies at this point, particularly when it means some of them won’t be able to have a traditional Christmas meal. Allow me to make an interesting point here. The Jews also have prohibitions against eating pork and they have lived among Western civilizations for thousands of years yet the Jews, to my knowledge, have never tried to make the rest of us follow their beliefs. What does that say about intolerance and Muslims ... ?

imageimage No Ham For Christmas:
Muslim Menu For WA Hospital

(AUSTRALIA SUNDAY TIMES)

A Western Australia hospital has scrubbed baked ham from its Christmas menu, fearing Muslim patients could be offended. It has also overhauled its entire menu so that all meals are now halal – containing only meat and other food prepared according to Muslim customs. But Port Hedland Regional Hospital staff and many non-Muslim patients are outraged, saying it is a case of political correctness gone mad.

Kitchen staff are so angry that they have organised a petition demanding ham be put back on the Christmas menu. Other WA hospitals are also introducing halal dining, though the Health Department says Port Hedland is the only one to convert its entire menu to suit Muslims. Hospital directors decided to axe the traditional festive season baked ham because of the high percentage of Muslim patients.

Eating pork or ham is forbidden under Muslim custom. Until now, Muslims were asked to supply their own food if they did not want to eat hospital fare. The hospital’s nursing director, Judy Davis, said though ham was not on the menu, Christian patients would not miss out on festive cheer. “We’ll still make Christmas special – we’ve got prawns and all sorts of other special treats,” she said.

But one long-time Port Hedland hospital worker told The Sunday Times the menu change was “unAustralian”. “It’s going to be a boring old Christmas lunch for the patients,” he said. “After all, what’s Christmas without a ham, or Sunday morning without bacon and eggs?

“The management of the hospital are unable to stand up to a minority and keep our Australian way of life intact. They are bowing to the pressure of a select few.” He warned that the only politically correct fare would soon be “a bowl of rice and a cup of tea”. “No wonder the true-blue Australians are getting angry,” he said. “Now all we need is for someone of the Hindu faith to jump up and down and we’ll have no beef. “Before we know it, if you’re sick in Port Hedland, you will have to be happy with a diet of boiled rice and a cup of tea.”

What’s In A Name?

As you read the politically incorrect story below, bear in mind that I have written the mayor and suggested they change the name to either Honkeytown or Gringoville. So far, I have received no reply ....

Texas City Split Over Vote to Change Name
WHITE SETTLEMENT, Texas (AP)

In the 1840s, a village of white pioneers sprang up amid several American Indian encampments. Its name, White Settlement, seemed fitting at the time. Today, some city leaders argue the name is misleading and politically incorrect, hindering economic development in this 15,000-resident suburb of Fort Worth. On Tuesday, voters will decide whether to adopt a new name—West Settlement.

The proposal has angered many residents who believe the change is unnecessary and would cost too much. Signs have popped up in store windows urging folks to “Be Proud! Don’t Let Them Discard the Heritage of White Settlement. Vote No!” “It’s a mixed community, a blue-collar community, and everyone gets along,” said Ernest Rodriguez, who has lived here 14 years and opposes the name change. “The name doesn’t have anything to do with the financial problems.”

In recent years the city’s sales tax revenues have taken a hit with the departure of several big businesses—including Home Depot, Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores—and some argue the town’s name has prevented new businesses from coming to town to fill the gaps. White Settlement is landlocked by Fort Worth and several smaller cities, so when the companies couldn’t expand they relocated to larger properties outside the city about a mile away.

“It raises a red flag,” said Grant Jackson, a White Settlement Chamber of Commerce vice president. “Texas has kind of a redneck image, cowboys and everything rough and tough, so a politically incorrect-sounding name is more apt to take wings when it’s part of Texas.” Opponents say city leaders have not been aggressive or flexible enough in working to attract new business.

“There is nothing wrong with the name White Settlement, and the majority here is proud of the name,” said former City Councilman Alan Price, who made 2,000 “Vote No” signs. The city is about 86 percent white, according to 2000 U.S. Census figures. Residents on both sides of the name-change issue say it hasn’t had a reputation for racism. But some black newcomers say they have felt shunned. New Orleans residents Adrienne Hansberry, her boyfriend, Clarence Goods, and a dozen of their relatives recently were brought to the area after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

“When I heard that we’d be going to White Settlement, I was like, ‘I don’t think I want to move there,’ “ Hansberry said. “We are decent citizens, but we haven’t been treated like that.” Goods said their apartment neighbors—most of them white but also some Hispanics—have been moving out in droves, some in the middle of the night. The couple also said they know of other hurricane refugees of various races who have felt unwelcome in several communities.

If the name change is approved, the city would spend about $25,000 initially to revise the name on police cars, uniforms and legal documents, Mayor James Ouzts said. “We’ve got to get serious about looking forward,” Ouzts said. “The history is there, but we can hang onto that to the point that it chokes us.”
