The five percent solution

“To our transgender brothers and sisters, we will not allow a federal nondiscrimination or hate crimes bill to move forward that does not include you. You are us and we will not walk down the path to equality without you at our side.” –Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force, speaking at a tranny conference in Kansas City. Basically, he’s proposing political suicide. (NOTE: I do not support hate crimes legislation for any minority — murder is murder, hate is hate, but that’s another discussion.) It’s not an all or nothing world, and Foreman — typical of…

Racism sells

THE K-K-Kramer scandal murdered Michael Richards’ career – but it’s doing wonders for sales of the latest “Seinfeld” DVD. Season 7 of the popular sitcom is outselling the Season 6 set (released on the same day last year) by more than 75 percent, and more than 90 percent over season 5 at some online DVD retailers, according to TMZ.com.

Meanwhile, pedophiles go free

From 1995 to 2003, inmates in federal prison for drug offenses have accounted for 49 percent of total prison population growth. One in every 32 American adults were behind bars, on probation or on parole at the end of 2005, according to the Justice Department.

Legalize it, man — it’s the only solution.

On the other hand …

A preview of some proposed DVD extras from “Borat”: OPENING “VILLAGE” SECTION: How about a high-speed montage of the actual difficult, brutal lives of the villagers in Romania—the hours of debilitating toil, their oppression at the hands of their corrupt government, premature loss of teeth, death of infants, etc., etc.—culminating in a panning shot of the village on the morning of the day when they first realize they’ve been had, and that, as far as posterity goes, they will always be remembered, if remembered at all, as savages, rapists, prostitutes, etc., and they stumble out of their little sheds or whatever, looking…

It came from 1984

I’ve already referenced Sly Stallone today, but where else are you gonna find mention of his brother, Frank? Not sure why I’m proud of that. (And for those who’ve wondered about John Travolta’s sexuality, Frank’s video has all the answers.) Show a lot of things happening at once, Remind everyone of what’s going on And with every shot you show a little improvement To show it all would take too long That’s called a montage Oh we want montage … (Courtesy: “Team America: World Police” — watch the full clip here)

Kansas outlaws evolution

From The Onion: In response to a Nov. 7 referendum, Kansas lawmakers passed emergency legislation outlawing evolution, the highly controversial process responsible for the development and diversity of species and the continued survival of all life. “From now on, the streets, forests, plains, and rivers of Kansas will be safe from the godless practice of evolution, and species will be able to procreate without deviating from God’s intended design,” said Bob Bethell, a member of the state House of Representatives. “This is about protecting the integrity of all creation.” The new law prohibits all living beings within state borders from any willful…
