I am greatful to Mourdock and Akin for coming out in favor of rape. If they had kept their mouths shut, they may have actually gotten elected.
Meanwhile; have a bowl of Rape-Nuts

The Benghazi disaster is an eery replay of the hostage rescue in Iran. Both episodes are an example of the epic failure of the president.

Homer should worry more about the Democrat leadership in his state not evacuating and protecting their citizens before the storm hits and then refusing to allow the Federal Government to take control until two days later after all heck has broken loose.
Of course, Homer would still blame Bush this time too.

the fact is that women who drink, use drugs, go to bars, and dress provocatively are more likely to be raped than those who do not behave in that manner.....that's not an excuse or a justification, just a fact.....
What a moran! The entire article can be found under "Bad Science" "Women who drink alcohol, wear short skirts and are outgoing are more likely to be raped?“We found no evidence that that women who are more outgoing are more likely to be raped, this is completely inaccurate, we found no difference whatsoever. The alcohol thing is also completely wrong: if anything, we found that men reported they were willing to go further with women who are completely sober.”

And what about the Telegraph’s next claim, or rather, the Telegraph’s reassuringly distant and objective assertion that it is scientists who are now claiming that women who dress provocatively are more likely to be raped?

“We have found at the minute that people will go slightly further with women who are provocatively dressed, but this result is not statistically significant. Basically you can’t say that’s an effect, it could easily be the play of chance. I told the journalist it isn’t one of our main findings, you can’t say that. It’s not significant, which is why we’re not reporting it in our main analysis.”

So if the Telegraph are throwing blame around with rape, who do we blame for this story, and what do we do about it? On the one hand, we’re not naturally impressed with the newspaper.“When I saw the article my heart completely sank, and it made me really angry, given how sensitive this subject is. To be making claims like the Telegraph did, in my name, places all the blame on women, which is not what we were doing at all. I just felt really angry about how wrong they’d got this study.” Since I started sniffing around, and Sophia complained, the Telegraph have quietly changed the online copy of the article, although there has been no formal correction, and in any case, it remains inaccurate."

Mourdock supports the rapist to have visitation rights to the babies.
If your daughter was forced by Mourdock to have her rapists baby, would you welcome the rapist to Thanksgiving dinner and say , thanks for the gift from God?

that's why your state income tax is only 3.07% and the 6% sales tax does not apply to food or clothing....

Homer would prefer Democrat California or New York, with 10% income tax and 9% sales tax.....

We now know today that Obama administration orders to stand down. during the Li ya terrorist attck were ignored.

The men on the ground disobeyed Obamas political thugs in D.C.

Obama is incompetent and useless.

Impeach Obama, even if it is retrospective.

If make a typo here its because I'm laughing my ass off.

Just returned from an errand to the bank.

I tuned into Rush Limbaugh & he was talking to some military guy who was talking about sending a AC-130. into Benghazi.

And Lo & Behold, here comes "and so it goes" talking about AC130s.

Wow, Proof again that he is a Rush Limbaugh believer. No wonder his posts are full of lies.

Too funny,

Carol, Homer always gets his facts twisted. Take today for example. Friday is casual day and Homer comes in wearing a new pair of Levis, an Obama t-shirt and a pair of nike running shoes made with child labor in china, go figure. Anyway, I want to ignore his obnoxious t-shirt so I say “hey nice pants”. He tells me that his grandfather told him that the key to longevity is good jeans. All I could do was say un-huh.
I do not wear Levi's or Nike's you friggin' elitist.

Why not vote for "something new"? It's a crap shoot. The new face alone is identified with progress/change and provides the impetus/rationale for a decision/vote, not a critical look at what's behind and below the face or the events/people driving the look of that face and the noises it makes.

Although making a decision based on appearance, gesture, voice and dress is a strong evolutionary trait, it is one that must be fought against mightily. The king makers/marketers are betting on a swift visceral evolutionary reaction that triggers a vote, not a critical assessment of the face, gestures and so on.

Monsters with Nice Faces

Slavoj Zizek speaks to this matter through the use a John Carpenter film. "When the hero of John Carpenter's 1988 They Live puts on a pair of weird sunglasses that he has stumbled upon in an abandoned church, he notices a billboard that once invited us to a Hawaii beach holiday now simply displays the words:'MARRY AND REPRODUCE.' Ad copy on another billboard - this one for a new color TV - says,'DON'T THINK, CONSUME!' The glasses, then, function as a device for the critique of ideology. In other words, they enable him to see the real message lying beneath the glossy, colorful surface."

With Zizek's description in mind the socioeconomic and cultural symbols of the American human terrain-and the noises emanating from the faces of American leaders and news readers--are really saying something like this: Let's kill and displace more young people, this time in Iran. A lot of our own young Americans have no future anyway and there is only so much we can get them to spend on clothes, travel and gadgets. So let's put 'em to work killing Iranian kids or converting them into American disciples. So what if Iraq and Afghanistan turned into hell holes. Iran will be different and we can combine that with a Syrian adventure.
