“How come everybody wanna keep it like the Kaiser?”
Well, I still don’t know. Anybody?
This one holds up. Still sounds great. Happy times.

The great state of Georgia, home of Jimmy Carter, Ty Cobb, and peaches, has now put forth a bill banning men from having vasectomies. Proposed by democratic Representative Yasmin Neal, in an effort to exhibit the hypocrisy of anti-abortion based restrictions to women’s health, this bill is in keeping with the similar “Every Sperm is Sacred” amendment proposed by Oklahoma state Senator Constance Johnson.
“If we legislate women’s bodies, it’s only fair that we legislate men’s,” justified Neal. Believing that vasectomies leave “thousands of children … deprived of birth,” the bill is tongue-in-cheek, though it wouldn’t even need to exist if stupidity wasn’t already rampant in the Georgia legislature.
Kirsten Powers has written an article in which she claims that the American Left has a double standard when it comes to calling out public figures for misogynistic attacks on women:
[I]f Limbaugh’s actions demand a boycott—and they do—then what about the army of swine on the left?
“The Price of Sex is a feature-length documentary about young Eastern European women who have been drawn into a world of sex trafficking and abuse. It is a story told by the young women who refused to be silenced by shame, fear, and violence. Emmy-nominated photojournalist Mimi Chakarova, who grew up in Bulgaria, takes us on a personal journey¬–exposing the shadowy world of sex trafficking from Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Western Europe. Filming undercover and gaining extraordinary access, Chakarova illuminates how even though some women escape to tell their stories, sex trafficking thrives.

Human Rights Watch has documented the trafficking of women and girls into forced prostitution in places such as post-conflict Bosnia and Côte d’Ivoire as well as exposed the abuses and violations sex workers face at the hands of police, officials, and private individuals–sometimes in the name of combating trafficking. Human Rights Watch has also been a leading advocate in exposing human trafficking–predominantly of women and girls–in other fields such as domestic work, where women and girls are often deceived into working in slave like conditions, enduring physical, mental and sexual abuse with no access to justice.” from http://ff.hrw.org/film/price-sex?city=4
the first human creatures of God were Adam and Lilith. As it goes, Lilith leaves Adam after she refuses to become subservient to him. Thereafter, Lilith is viewed in the class of demonic females. In contrast to the self-reliance Lilith had from man, Eve was created from the rib of Adam….
There is the unwillingness to listen, a ferociously stubborn not getting it on so many things, so many important things. And the obdurate refusal to believe, to internalize, that my outrage is not manufactured and my injure not make-believe—an inflexible rejection of the possibility that my pain is authentic, in favor of the consolatory belief that I am angry because I’m a feminist (rather than the truth: that I’m a feminist because I’m angry).
And there is the denial about engaging in misogyny, even when it’s evident, even when it’s pointed out gently, softly, indulgently, carefully, with goodwill and the presumption that it was not intentional. There is the firm, fixed, unyielding denial—because it is better and easier to imply that I’m stupid or crazy, that I have imagined being insulted by someone about whom I care (just for the fun of it!), than it is to just admit a bloody mistake. Rather I am implied to be a hysteric than to say, simply, I’m sorry.
Not every man does all of these things, or even most of them, and certainly not all the time. But it only takes one, randomly and occasionally, exploding in a shower of cartoon stars like an unexpected punch in the nose, to send me staggering sideways, wondering what just happened.
Well. I certainly didn’t see that coming…
These things, they are not the habits of deliberately, connivingly cruel men. They are, in fact, the habits of the men in this world I love quite a lot.
All of whom have given me reason to mistrust them, to use my distrust as a self-protection mechanism, as an essential tool to get through every day, because I never know when I might next get knocked off-kilter with something that puts me in the position, once again, of choosing between my dignity and the serenity of our relationship.
Whats so shocking about this picture?
Take a closer look. 12-oz apple juice has about the same amount of sugar in a 12-oz coke! (39-42g of sugar thats about 9-10 tspoons) Drink in moderation or just go for water. Make real apple juice.

Her Irving Berlin optimism can’t touch my Cole Porter sad
She fell asleep before the television
Me and the TV are insomniacs
And we both know this can’t last
We both know this can’t last
Beware of people who carry grudges
They’ve got Atlas’s shoulders and his patience
