Memo to Mr. Duke, in those parts of the world where the detentions, enslavement, torture and genocide actually occurred, it's generally a criminal act to deny that past for your own twisted ends that subvert the present and poison the future. Have fun with that.
A prominent Iraqi human rights activist says that Iraqi militia have deployed a painful form of torture against homosexuals by closing their anuses using "Iranian gum.” … Yanar Mohammad told Alarabiya.net that, “Iraqi militias have deployed an unprecedented form of torture against homosexuals by using a very strong glue that will close their anus.”
According to her, the new substance 'is known as the American hum, which is an Iranian-manufactured glue that if applied to the skin, sticks to it and can only be removed by surgery. After they glue the anuses of homosexuals, they give them a drink that causes diarrhea. Since the anus is closed, the diarrhea causes death. Videos of this form of torture are being distributed on mobile cellphones in Iraq.' According to this human rights activist, for the past 3 weeks a crackdown on homosexuals has been going on based on a religious decree that demands their death; dozens have been targeted. She says that the persecution of homosexuals is not confined to the Shiite clerics. Some Sunni leaders have also declared the death penalty for sodomy on satellite channels."
Yankee by birth, Southern by good-damned-tastes-and-sensibilities...Der Schatten proudly presents a dynamic woman that he has seen as a solo act in a dive, a solo act in an ampitheatre, as the front for a mega-star band in an ampitheatre, and as the front for an obscure band in a dive. Ladies and Gentleman the ALWAYS-SMOKIN' NATALIE MERCHANT!
No sex here, kids...just one of the best songs ever written.
No snark, no pithy or bitchy comments. Today is Yom HaShoah. While I am not Jewish, not German, I am human, and I recognize the diminishment to us all when 3/4 of a people are systemically wiped from the face of the Earth, in some of the cruelest, degrading and inhuman ways possible; an act looked on with apathy by the West and goading silence by Others (notably the Catholic Church). Shalom.
I honestly don't know what to make of this. I suppose in Japan, where feminism hasn't hit yet: A) All the women are furniture, B) they must contort themselves in uncomfortable positions while the man sleeps, C) they all have phenomenal legs that smell strangely of polyurethane. I just don't know...this one seems a little too weird, even for me. Thus, while the Spooning Pillow gets high marks, this one affirms that....
Yes, we are still Rick Hunt's bitch.
This, is not my cup of tea
"A Salinas priest is accused of giving a boy beer, brandy and "spiritual massages" starting when the victim was a 14-year-old, prosecutors said in court Monday...Prosecutors said they think there are more victims. They said Cortes had several photos of young boys partially nude on his cell phone when he was arrested."
But, I have to...And, this is in no way creepy like that damned Lunesta butterfly. If I saw that thing in my room, I'd never sleep again.
You know truly stands on the shoulders of no giants, despite what he may claim...Stephen friggin' Hawking. However, he has been hospitalized per the Cambridge University spokesperson
"Professor Hawking is very ill," said Gregory Hayman, the university's head of communications. "He is undergoing tests. He has been unwell for a couple of weeks."
h/t, as ever to Monkey, who apparently has far more time than I do.
H/T to Doug over at Hey Jenny Slater...but, the long and short of it is, everyone, EVER, is soft against piracy, except Obama...Take that rethugs.
Now, minions, now. This is clearly one of the wittiest, most intelligent and most humorous blogs going. Good news is, he just got a book deal :) That aside, this piece on the porcupine is piss-your-pants funny.
Ms. Huckaby, I hope that when you shuffle off this mortal coil, leaving the world no worse for your absence, that it is as painful and protracted and violent as possible.
