Thanks, Comment Spammers

Not funny. I am also one of the top results for the Paris Hilton video, photos of women’s privates, and Arabic peep shows. I have never mentioned any of these topics on my blog (before now that is), but after various unsavory characters spammed my referrer list, search engines associated my websites with these sundry websites. Fortunately, the referrer list works both ways – I’m now one of the top capitalists on the web.

Eco-killers shut down animal lab

Plans to build a major new medical laboratory in England were scrapped Tuesday in the face of protests by animal rights groups, who claimed the decision as a major victory….Cambridge University said the project, which would have used monkeys for neurological testing, would no longer go ahead and cited spiraling costs over security needed to keep out anti-vivisectionist groups.
…The university and the publicly funded Medical Research Council (MRC), said the decision was a great disappointment as the laboratory would have attracted scientists from around the world to work on diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s….”The research is vital and ‘vital’ means likely to save lives,” he said. “This research will go on elsewhere…in the world.”

Once again, the sick eco-freaks behind the “animal rights” movement show what they really hate: technology – and the human lives it saves.

There is a saying in Iraq “a lion in a cage is still a lion”

Lies, Myths and Downright Stupidity

Check out John Stosell’s “List of Popularly Reported Misconceptions.” Every one of them should be obvious to any educated individual with an ounce of independent thought. That they are rarely recognized as such in the media and elsewhere is a sad testament to irrationalism of our society.

"F*** Hitler! F*** the Nazis!"

This is one of the reaons I want a parrot: “inner thoughts of Britain’s wartime leader Winston Churchill live on, thanks to the foul mouth of his 104-year-old parrot who lives at a garden centre in southeast England.” Also check out JJ’s take on it.

Israel moving forward with plan to release 400 Arab prisoners

Israel is releasing over 430 terrorists (many of whom are known to have planned and carried out terrorist attacks) in exchange for a single businessman abducted in 2000 by the Hezbollah. While this is a great example of the difference between the value Israelis and the terrorists place on human life, I wonder how many more people will be killed/abducted by the 400 released terrorists. What do you think? How do you think American politicians would act in such a situations?
From the article:

“[the] next phase in the deal may involve Iran, which along with Syria is the main financial backer of Hezbollah”…
Some Israeli commentators and right-wing politicians worried that the deal rewards terrorism and could lead to other kidnappings…Asked if Hezbollah would seek other hostages if these deals fell through, Sheik Nasrallah said at the news conference: “Yes. Of course.”

Goodbye to the Big Apple

I’ve long wanted to live in a major city in or near New York City, but recent political trends have changed my mind. Here are some of the more outrageous examples:

Post Office Stuck in Time Loop

A leading physicist claims to have figured out why the U.S. Postal Service loses a lot of mail and delivers most of the rest late — post offices are “architectural anomalies” that cause time warps, wreaking havoc with letters, packages, sorting machines . . . and sometimes even mail carriers themselves.

While the Post Office is indeed stuck in some ancient pre-industrial era, a more likely explanation for why I had to wait in line for an hour to send a package this Tuesday is that incompetent government bureaucrats don’t have to care about the service they provide because of a coercive government monopoly that prevents infinitely more efficient private carriers from competing with them.

"Mandatory Masks for the Ugly"

Federal officials who recently reported that over 140 million Americans are fat are now saying that at least that many are ugly. And the solution they’re proposing is a law that would encourage or even require “facially challenged” citizens to cover up with masks, Weekly World News has learned.

But the news isn’t all bad. According to sources at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, those among you who are real homely will be able to choose from a wide range of “beauty masks,” including Elvis in his prime, J.Lo, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.

The dramatic move comes as the Feds are reeling from a global perception that most Americans are grossly obese when, in fact, only half are.
