School Bans Dreadlocked Student
Yes, wearing dreadlocks is SO outlandish. Why, she’s probably the only person on the planet who wears them! How DARE she shock and offend fellow students with such outrageousness! Yeah…and you know, it’s only fitting that such a stupid and pointless uproar was caused in a town called Whitefish. I suppose they’d prefer that she cut her hair into a big poofy afro like all black wimmin should. Yeah, that’ll show her where her place is in the school food chain, mmmHmmm! Knock that gurl down a peg or two, knowhatimsayin? Jeezus. Don’t these people have more pressing things to worry about, such as, oh I don’t know… Drugs in school? Student violence? And that other thing, what’s it called…oh yeah, EDUCATION? You know, learning stuff. If you’re so easily distracted from your studies and teaching, then maybe you should stay home from school.
Conservatives target anti-bully program
West Virginia Family Foundation President Kevin McCoy calls this program “nothing short of indoctrination of children to accept the homosexual lifestyle under the guise of safety and tolerance.” Here, let me translate that for you: “Frankly, we don’t care if some kid beats the living shit out of one of those perverted faggots, because they’re less than human and deserve to be treated as such.” Yes, that’s so much clearer now. There is so much evil in the world…why must these so-called Christians contribute so much to it? Where is the compassion for children they claim to have so much of? I don’t see it here. What a shame. And they wonder why those kids blew up Columbine.
Producers Apologize for Jokes in ‘Barbershop’; Jackson Wants Scenes Cut
This is old news now, but it’s still absolutely ridiculous. What’s the matter, Jesse? Can’t take a joke aimed at your precious self? Ego too delicate for humorous criticism? Still stinging from all the bad press you got after the news of your love child revealed you to be a massively hypocritical opportunist? Or is it just the spicy curry you had for lunch?
CBS Hopes Hicks Click in ‘Hillbillies’ Reality TV
Dear God, why?? What did we do to deserve such mindless crapola? Must we sacrifice Anna Nicole by throwing her into a volcano? No? Well, can we do it anyway?
McDonald’s to Cook with Healthier Oil
So now McDonald’s is pretending to care about the health of its customers by using a new kind of oil which reduces a certain type of fat. Of course, they waited until there was sufficient bad PR to do this, and it’s the ONLY reason they’re doing it. They want to uphold the appearance of being concerned about your health, but they really aren’t. If you drop dead from clogged arteries, chances are your kids will keep eating the stuff the way they’ve been trained — it’s the same tactic cigarette companies use to keep revenue flowing in. Old fat, new fat…it’s still crap, it’s bad for you…and yet, people still eat it like mindless cows.
Student gets $451,000 in school lawsuit
Wow. All I can say is…I hope you teachers and administrators out there who turn a blind eye to this kind of abuse will think twice about ignoring it again. Not only is it wrong, but it’s getting expensive as well.
59 sickened by E.coli
Another triumph for the meat-processing industry. “Beef: Getting sick never tasted so good.”
US ‘fired first shot’ at Pearl Harbor
Not exactly moronic news… I just love reading stories which alter the way we think about the past. We always think we have it right and know exactly what happened, but do we really know in every case?
TV dots airwaves with inaccuracies
More reasons to place little faith in the media to accurately report what’s going on. Lies, exaggerations, hype, and ratings — that’s all they’re in the business for. Actual fact-reporting is almost a novelty anymore.
Profiling charged on ‘nightmare’ flight
This story is just unbelievable. First, the U.S. marshals go berserk and practically hijack the plane at gunpoint while dealing with an “unruly” passenger, and when they spot a brown-skinned man (who happens to be a doctor with his own practice, and a U.S. citizen for many years) looking at them in a way they don’t like, they arrest him and throw him in a dirty cell for questioning. What country is this, again?
Just Shut Up!
Oh, please-please-please let this be approved in the U.S.: a device for blocking cell phone signals, which effectively renders phones useless within a certain range. Allow businesses, theaters, libraries, and other places where cell phones are unwelcome license this technology and bring peace back to their buildings. I believe these are legal in the UK, so why not here??
Forum speakers tell of post-Sept. 11 harassment
Yes, something to be proud of! Knee-jerk harassment of innocent people. A lot of people don’t seem to have a problem with this…they think that if someone has a certain look or belief system which is suddenly unpopular since 9/11, then those people should be detained, questioned, put out of business, or just plain harassed. Again, I just ask…what country is this again?
