Beauty pageant rehearsal turns ugly
Wonderful! Another demonstration of how shallow and meaningless these beauty pageants are. In this episode, one airheaded college girl attacks another airheaded college girl over “a dance segment that drew on her love of horses and included a lasso routine in which she roped a stuffed pig”. Need I say more?
Miss America denies reports of unhappiness
Oh, I see…Miss America, who holds a title which means absolutely nothing of significance, isn’t allowed to be unhappy or even mildly dissatisfied with her “prestigious” position. Please, folks…the Miss America thing has been utter bullshit from Year One, and we all know it. It’s MEANINGLESS. And people are accusing her of catching on to this fact, is that it? I say, be unhappy and be outspoken about it! Of course she’s going to publicly deny any unhappy feelings about what’s happening to her, but apparently she’s told her parents how miserable and disappointed she is with the way things are going. She ought to toss that crown in the trash where it belongs, and get on with her life.
Council bans covered erections in public
Oh, good luck on this one! Imposing bans on biological functions is destined for failure, but it never stops certain groups of people from lingering in the Dark Ages when writing public policy. And, of course, it’s all done in the name of Protecting Our Morals. Why, how considerate of them! I wonder if they’ll ever get around to banning the public hardening of nipples in cold weather, something which deeply offends my own Christian morals. Ahem.
Unknown Toll in the Fog of War: Civilian Deaths in Afghanistan
Another thing the military killing machine doesn’t want you to know about: the deaths of potentially thousands of Afghan civilians. Of course, they don’t want you to think that their propaganda is to blame in keeping all this from being discussed too openly. The military using propaganda? No way! Yeah, right. Liars! If they kill people, they need to be upfront about it, because that’s what the military does best and they take great pride in it. Why be shy?
Pentagon Readies Efforts to Sway Sentiment Abroad
Oh goody, more lies and propaganda! They’re openly admitting it: “We’re going to lie to you and manipulate the facts to swing in our favor.” Well, I guess honesty is best. Thank you, Pentagon, for making us trust our media even more.
Scientology reaches out to troubled with ad campaign
So the Cult of Greed and Power (I mean Scientology, not our government or the sports world, the other two groups with that title) is sharpening its claws and looking to hook some fresh victims amongst the millions who were emotionally traumatized by 9/11. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but somehow I didn’t think anyone would have the balls to go this far. I was wrong. The evil never ceases, does it?
