On the other hand, some speech is more valuable than other. And good satire is often a great teaching tool. Seems like the teachers get it, the administrators do not.

Well, actually, they do whatever they want with it. Sell it to whoever will pay... as long as it's legal, they'll do it.

Still, I have a certain admiration for the atheist groups and their war on religious stupidity.
I found this today, from the FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION.

Talk about a sick society!! Now people get sick when they DON'T work. Please! Maybe they should call it the BLACK-BURY. There's a Japanese word: Kuroshi. It means death by overwork. How 'bout LIFE by overwork. Ouch!

Everything in moderation? Yeah right. Even the HEAVY drinkers outlast the teetotalers!
Not only have I been saying this for years... I've been living it! I'm not sure what a "first-degree relative" is, but I probably have one. Doesn't affect me.
THIS is the kind of stuff they should be teaching in school!

It's always so hard to decide what to eat in this city. It's a good thing we have short guides like this to make things easier. These suggestions are from the famous BARON AMBROSIA.

Beloit College, one of my alma matres, publishes a STUDENT MINDSET list every year. This year the local free paper picked it up and illustrated it. For us old farts, it's scary! Click on the image if you have trouble reading it. It should expand to a suitable bi-focal-readable size.

The same thing happens all the time. Not only with skinheads,but with MEN. How many false charges of rape and "sexual harrassment" have been kneejerked... just based on gender. In New York, if a woman complains about abuse, there MUST be an arrest!! Guilty until proven innocent!

Now, his grandson is challenging Charlie Rangel for his congressional seat. Charlie is one of my favorite politicians. Now, as he nears 80, he's facing some who-cares? congressional allegations. (Property in Bermuda? Come on!) Rangel's life should be a celebration. One of his greatest acts was to introduce legislation to bring back the draft. In effect he's saying: Alright Mr. & Mrs. Richguys, you want to send folks to die for your oil? Let's send YOUR kids! Yeah!
That's not the main point for me though. The main point is how WHITE Adam the 4th looks!! When I first saw the campaign literature, I thought he was some Good Ole Boy! I think he's gonna have to blacken up if he wants to win THIS primary.

When alcohol is illegal, only dangerous alcoholics have alcohol. Get it?

On March 31, 2010, the PACT (Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking) Act was signed into law by Congress. This means that, effective June 29, 2010, cigarettes, including roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless tobacco are “nonmailable” matter and cannot be shipped using the U.S. Postal Service® or by common carriers such as UPS and FedEx, unless your company has a standing injunction against this law or the shipment falls within certain exceptions.
Some exceptions to this law include:
Shipment of cigars is not prohibited under this Act
Shipment entirely within Alaska or Hawaii
Shipments transmitted between verified and authorized tobacco industry businesses for business purposes, or between such businesses and federal or state agencies for regulatory purposes
Infrequent, lightweight shipments mailed by age-verified adult individuals
Shipments of cigarettes sent by verified and authorized manufacturers to verified adult smokers age 21 and over for consumer testing purposes, and shipments sent by federal agencies for public health purposes.
All shipments of cigarettes that qualify for one of these exceptions must include a unique mark for its particular exception on the address side of the package. Additional requirements may apply.
Additional information about the PACT Act has been summarized in the Postal Bulletin. If you believe that your shipments could be affected by this ruling, we urge you to contact your U.S. Postal Service representative who can better help you to understand how this law applies to your business.
Jeezus! It's enough to make you START smoking.

And then they tell me that Bill Gates is actually a good guy because he gives money away through his foundation. (After stealing it in the first place with a ruthless business model... now happily falling apart.)
Well, let's see how OTHER Foundations are doing. (This is from FORBES, of all places.)

So in the corporate world, whistleblowers on corporate corruption are cheered. But in the military... they're arrested.
More than that. Conservatives say that the US-tortured prisoners in Guantanamo have no rights because "they target civilians." Turns out that the US army does the same thing! What a surprise!

The US has the greatest percentage of its population in jail of any country in the world. (That includes Iran and other so-called dictatorships.) Many (most?) prisons are for-profit enterprises whose job it is to squeeze the most out of the inmates while returning the least to them.
Often, if you want to complain about inhuman conditions, you have to PAY to file a grievance. Such would be impossible in a civilized country.
Yeah, let freedom ring!

Here's a copy of a letter I sent to Popeye's management. Let 'em know what you think about $1.90 for a an empty cup.
As you probably know, Popeye's has the best fast-food chicken in the country. That's why I was so happy to see a Popeye's on (327) Canal Street in Manhattan, right across from the post office. After picking up my mail, I went to Popeye's and ordered the new Chicken Bowl. Good price. Good taste. Good service too... until I asked for a cup of water.
The store wanted to charge $1.90 for the empty cup. Worse than that, the original Chicken bowl had offered soda for an extra 79¢. Popeye's wanted me to pay more than a dollar for an empty cup with nothing in it. Of course, I turned down the offer and ate my meal rather angrily. Needless to say, I won't be returning to that restaurant... and it's a pity. The food is so good!
Is this a regular policy? In all Popeye's? If so, I will reluctantly go back to the Colonel. If not, perhaps someone might speak to the manager of that branch and tell him he has lost at least one customer because of the cup charge.
Thank you, Mykel Board

Naw that can't be it.
You can read Mykel's columns at his column blog.
Oh yeah, how exactly can you "dupe" someone who's brain dead?

Check this out... smuggled out of a Washington State prison. Check out: If client is to remain on restraint board for longer than 2 hours... Ouch!

But wait! There's more... check this out too... And this is for someone who's supposed to be suicidal, and therefore emotionally fragile. How much worse for the "stable" ones?

I think this handbill is from Trinidad. It is so bizarre, I just had to share it.
It advertises WATER (ionized, to be sure) that when you stick your feet into it... turns black. (That happens to me with ALL water, anyway.) This blackness is the toxins leaving your body. More than that, the company offers a special "Womb Cleansing," presumably using the same water. It is unclear what color the water turns in the process.
Where is this miracle company located? "Behind the Hotstop on Maraval Street." Ouch!

They say they are dog people and cat people. I like dogs. I don't mind cats, but usually they do not like me. (Except for my sister's cat who likes EVERYBODY!) Most people who have a dog, have A dog. Cats are different.

I found an early article that explains the reason why suddenly HETS were seen as being in danger of AIDS. I've been saying that ONLY unprotected anal sex, IV drug use, and pregnancy (mother to child) spreads AIDS. This must be where I got it from.

I think this was from the Realist Magazine. It was from a time of NYC junkie break ins. Everyone had a super lock to keep 'em out. This was a more traditional method... used against witches in earlier times.
