wageism and other stupid stuff cos ppl have too much free time

I can no longer recall the name of the book or the writer, but clearly recall one line.

It read, “The world is a mad green onion, stinking and reeking its way through stellar space”.

I am pretty sure that’s how it went.  And I believe it was more than 40 years ago I read it.  Or, possibly heard it.  Anyway, it isn’t a Piper original, and what made me think of that line today, are items I found in the paper. While I don’t know about the onion part, the mad part out front and center.

First and most maddening is the new law from California to take effect in Jan. of 2016.  The term “Redskins” is to be outlawed as racist and any school or any team in the state currently using the word, will be banned from doing so.
Of course all our regulars here at bmews will be shocked to learn that the white house is happy with the decision made by governor Moonbeam of CA., over this outrageously misplaced and totally stupid law.

The article said that native Americans the redskins were very happy with this decision which btw is the result I read for the first time, of a campaign started by a Washington newspaper 1992. 
How the hell is it that educated and articulate people can be so stupid?

Oh … and as a finishing touch, it is also reported that Mr. Obama has said that the deal to bring the Redskin team to a new stadium in DC, “must drop” the Redskin name.
I guess you folks already know about this but I’m posting it as further proof of how mad the culture has become.  I guess too that you know the redskin name can’t even be used for team mascots.

here for the article

And if that isn’t dumb enough for ya, besides dumb, this could be scary.
The feds are going to look into it.

Oh btw …. another ism has been introduced.
“wage-ism”
You ready for that?

OK, the following is really a load of rubbish but .... believe it or not after starting to read it, still believing as I do now that it is lawyer made crap and the less talented just have to have someone, anyone to blame, in spite of all that, it turns out to be a rather interesting article after all.
A load of crap?  Sure thing. Hey ...
If Hollywood is nothing else, it’s still and always will be about, $Money!
The way the questions were asked and the number of those interviewed, I’m sure you can smell a stitch up when you run across it.
I find it very difficult to believe that the folks who hire and produce and bring things together, sit down and plan to exclude women with talent.
Not in an industry where large sums of money are made and lost almost daily.  I just see this as a future cash cow for the whiners and the less talented.

So the EEOC with the force of the feds talks to 50 women. Yeah so?  Why not 150 or are there only 50 in all of lala land? And with the aclu in the mix, I see future lawsuits as hinted at here, without end.  Next thing will be, transgender directors discriminated against, then actors with two different colored eyes. 


Feds Officially Probing Hollywood’s Lack Of Female Directors

The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will begin interviewing dozens of female directors next week in an effort to see what action, if any, it should take to combat discrimination against female film and TV directors. A letter from the EEOC went out to some 50 women late last week.

It could be the first step toward a class-action lawsuit against the industry.

“I would like the EEOC to take legal action against the studios, the networks and the commercial production companies to make them comply with the law,” said commercial director Lori Precious, one of the women the EEOC has called in to discuss the situation. “I hope they force people to change the way they do business because Hollywood is not exempt from the law.”

“We greatly appreciate your willingness to share your personal stories and the obstacles which you have faced in pursuit of success within your profession,” reads the letter sent out October 1 by Marla Stern-Knowlton, Systemic Supervisor of the Los Angeles district office of the EEOC.

The EEOC, Stern-Knowlton noted, is a federal agency charged with enforcing Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employment discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion and national origin; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, which prohibits employment discrimination against individuals 40 and older; the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which prohibits wage discrimination based on gender; the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, which prohibits discrimination in employment against a qualified individual with a disability; and the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act of 2008, which prohibits discrimination based on genetics.

In other words, the industry could be a facing massive, government-led class action on any number of fronts affecting the underemployment of female directors — from sexism and ageism to racism and “wageism.” Women currently receive only 16% of the episodic TV directing jobs, and last year directed less than 5% of the major studio releases.

The latest and most serious push for gender equality in Hollywood began when several female directors urged the ACLU to take up their cause. In May, the ACLU filed a complaint with the EEOC, requesting an investigation into “the systemic failure to hire women directors at all levels of the film and television industry.”

One last bit of idiot stuff.

A group of retired judges here in lala annex along with 300 lawyers and academics, have condemned the government for “taking in too few refugees”. 
These brain-dead twits can’t even say the words ,,,, illegal migrants.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
