A Cosmopolitan Cover Satire --- And A Quick Rant

Several weeks ago I kept seeing a particular issue of Cosmopolitan magazine all over the newsstands. One phrase on that cover, which also featured the urban singer Rihanna, irked me.

Why in the HELL did the editors at Cosmo assume that they were talking to FIVE-YEAR-OLDS?! What's up, they're afraid that they'll offend people by calling that part of the female anatomy by its correct name, the vagina? I actually felt OFFENDED that WOMEN would mess with the names of their OWN body parts! Bad enough MEN do it, without the WOMEN sinking lower...

*SIGH*... (fail)

Deep inside I was screaming aloud, Dammit to hell, call it a vagina, not a pussy, a C-word, or a "va-JAY-jay", because it reminded me what I read in a Rodale Press encyclopaedia of sex and health about educating children about sex organs, about a passage instructing parents to teach the child to call a penis a penis and not a pee-pee, a wee-wee, or a thing.

After a while, it got me thinking, What if a MEN'S magazine took a similar approach with that shit? Well, I finally assembled such a cover, and here you go, with those two covers side by side. And you'll probably thank God that men's magazines DON'T have to resort to that crap --- unless they want to be excluded from most mass market stores!

Want an enlarged version of the satire? Here you go...

I hope like HELL that the folks at Cosmo see THIS satire! And I will GLADLY claim that one! Maybe THEY can see just HOW RIDICULOUS they looked with that cover, eh?


A New Name For Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-Nursery

Seeing how Hillary Clinton reacted like a crybaby when she was asked about drivers licences for illegal aliens then refused to take a stand, complaining instead about how that question WASN'T a "vast right wing conspiracy" and then complained to Nuthin' But Crap announcer Mr Potato Head during the Democrat candidates' debate, I have a new name for her.

It all started with this question from Mr Potato Head:

"Senator Clinton, I just want to make sure of what I heard. Do you, the New York senator, Hillary Clinton, support the New York governor's plan to give illegal immigrants a driver's license? You told the New Hampshire paper that it made a lot of sense. Do you support his plan?"

Then the crybaby in Hillary came out...

"You know, Tim (Russert, AKA "Mr Potato Head" from Meet The Depressed on Nuthin' But Crap), this is where everybody plays gotcha. It makes a lot of sense. What is the governor supposed to do? He is dealing with a serious problem. We have failed. And George Bush has failed. Do I think this is the best thing for any governor to do? No. But do I understand the sense of real desperation, trying to get a handle on this? Remember, in New York, we want to know who's in New York. We want people to come out of the shadows. He's making an honest effort to do it. We should have passed immigration reform. "

Then she has the cheek to whinge and moan about being picked on.

Sorry, Mrs "96 Tears" Clinton, but we're not buying that anymore.

There you have it: my new name for Hillary Clinton.

"96 Tears".

Inspired by the 1960s psychedelic hit from ? and the Mysterians, I would suggest that Rush --- and all other talk radio hosts too --- start calling her Hillary "96 Tears" Clinton. This could be a NEW UPDATE --- the Hillary Clinton update, starting with the song "96 Tears" and then Rush gives us the latest on her!

So, RUSH, Sean, Michael, Mark, Neal, Glenn, Bill, Bill, ANYBODY, PLEASE ---- steal this bit --- PLEASE! For the good of America!

Congressional Leaders Attack Real Talk Radio --- But Americans Are Fighting Back

In recent months a number of Democratic House and Senate leaders, as well as an Independent Senator who, with socialist views, tends to poll with the Dems, have called for the reimposition of an insidious form of censorship that would stifle the development of radio.
This form of censorship was imposed upon broadcasters from 1949 to 1987 but was repealed when it was found to have constrained open political discourse.

Enter the so-called 'Fairness' Doctrine.

Initially introduced by US House Representative Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) in January as a means of "reforming" the media and forcibly instilling "balance", simply because people like him have failed in talk radio.

You may recall that Air America Radio --- a patently left-wing radio network whose commentators were more often than not loaded with irrational partisan hatred --- had a similar message that could already be heard in the following outlets:

* ABC News
* CBS News
* Cable News Network
* NBC News
* National Public Radio
* Public Broadcast Service
* Associated Press
* Most major newspapers like the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, the St Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Washington Post
* Most major news magazines like Time, Newsweek, and US News & World Report

And in the end the network wound up losing so much money, at least in part because they PAID stations to carry their material, that they have since entered receivership and are trying to recover.

And word is that Communist organisations like Communist Party USA (which was heavily funded by the Soviet Union), the Maoist-influenced Revolutionary Communist Party, and World Can't Wait are all complicit in the efforts to censor the airwaves.

Representative Hinchey --- joined by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an Independent who has left-of-centre views --- have been supported in their efforts by patently anti-American left-of-centre billionaire George Soros, who has financed a number of left-leaning groups like the Massachusetts-based "Free Press" and other mellifluous-sounding front groups in effort to undermine freedom of speech and maybe even American society as a whole. Soros has also funded organisations dedicated to decriminalising dangerous illegal drugs, even to the point of sending security guards to attack those who protest his methods at public exhibitions.

And whilst the controlled media have been ignoring his numerous and ethical violations in his quest to steal power from and even censor the American people --- they have habitually mongered hatred toward independent media outlets like talk radio and internet-based news sites like NewsMax and WorldNetDaily and even bloggers, and even Fox News (which like MySpace, is a part of NewsCorp, albeit in a different division) as well, all because they have found ways to report the news without injecting their left-of-centre political biases and spin into the news.

They have also attacked the military, enforcement of immigration policy, business, and even innocent people like the Duke lacrosse players falsely accused of rape, not to mention overexaggerating social problems like homelessness, and even demonised religious conservatives.

Another leftist group, the so-called Centre for American Progress, have bemoaned the dominance of conservatives in talk radio by calling it "structural imbalance" in a fake report.

Now, the conservatives are fighting back, not only by contacting their Congressional representatives, but also by introducing, then passing, a bill that would prohibit the reimposition of the "Fairness" Doctrine without an Act of Congress.

The National Association of Broadcasters' CEO and president, David Rehr, has himself condemned the "Fairness Doctrine", citing the numbers of media outlets available today, with more than 13 000 radio stations, more than 1 700 television stations, and a myriad of websites with visual, video, and audio outlets catering to basically any viewpoint in America.

One needs to remember that with the Left --- especially in the editorial desks --- openly promoting a more neoliberal viewpoint that condemns America, condemns conservatism, and condemns freedom --- the marketplace has opened with the advent of myriad cable and satellite channels, including more television news sources, the growth of real talk radio, and the growth of internet-based news sites --- thus leading to the successes of folks like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, and Neal Boortz.

And that is the basic rule of the marketplace: You MUST be able to deliver a product the people actually want. With the liberal media dominating print and television news, millions of Americans have chosen to go with real talk radio; Air America Radio failed precisely because the audiences decided that they did not want to hear the same thing that they could easily see on no fewer than six television news channels, read in most major newspapers, or read in most major news magazines.

But because the Left have failed to attract an audience they seek to force-feed their message to the general public, most of whom have determined that they do not want that type of agenda embedded in their news coverage.

And ironically one of their own hosts has been badly burnt at least in part by another controversial talk radio host who aggressively shut down a rival: Al Sharpton, who himself hosts a show carried on 21 stations, led a campaign to bust Don Imus off CBS Radio and MSNBC over his controversial derogatory remarks about the Rutgers University women's basketball team.

Whilst Imus himself did a lot of damage to his career and his credibility --- he willingly apologised publicly and again to the Rutgers team --- incidentally on the same night New Jersey Democratic Governor John Corzine was injured in a wreck caused by a speeding state trooper who crashed the SUV through a guardrail at 91 miles an hour and Corzine was not wearing his seat belt.

But inasmuch damage as he did to himself with his racist comments --- Imus also apologised, and after he was basically driven off the air by racists like Al Sharpton (who has openly condemned Whites and may have contributed to the deaths of several Hispanic employees of a neighbourhood clothing store that burnt in the late 1980s) and Jesse Jackson (who is infamous for his anti-Semitic remarks) --- he even saw fit to file a lawsuit against CBS for breach of contract.

Sharpton was further aided and abetted in his efforts by a rather left-leaning group, Media Matters for America, who not only attempted to have Rush Limbaugh removed from Armed Forces Radio but are funded by Soros as well.

Was the Don Imus affair a dry run to make a charge against the ever-dominant talk radio host Rush Limbaugh? One county government in Florida did consider withdrawing their association with a Miami-area talk radio station because the station carry his show.

And now Senators are debating the matter, just after the House passed the Broadcast Freedom Act. Maybe you too could get involved in this effort, as the reality is people from both the left AND the right regularly get their points heard on real talk radio. Here is a site that will help you get started on that.

And if we don't start standing up to the censors who would want to silence real talk radio right now, there is no question that a onesided media would be forced upon the populace --- and then the next step would be forcible viewing and/or listening of the same onesided media --- and then other outlets would soon wind up under government censorship diktats.

Whether or not you agree with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and Michael Savage and Neal Boortz and Glenn Beck and Bill Bennett, you have got to admit that the reimposition of the "Fairness" Doctrine would interfere with your freedom of speech, not to mention your freedom of choice in how you get news, information, and commentary, not to mention even entertainment.



SOURCE: MoneyNews | Chrysler Nears Deal for Chinese Subcompacts

Chrysler Group is reportedly close to finalizing a deal with China automaker Chery Motor Co. to import Chinese subcompact cars to sell in the U.S. and Western Europe.

This disturbing development has outraged me enough that I have already sent Chrysler an email and I urge you to contact Chrysler as well.

Here is a look at the email that I sent to Chrysler via their web form:

After reading a report on NewsMax's MoneyNews service about your proposed deal with the Chinese-based Chery Motor Company with regard to supplying vehicles under the Chrysler nameplate ( REPORT LOCATION IS http://www.newsmax.com/money/archive...7/3/093149.cfm ) , I

am HORRIFIED that you would even THINK about making such a move!
It is more than bad enough that American manufacturing jobs have been lost in so many other industries. It is even worse that the Chinese government --- which operate all manufacturing plants in their country --- have outrageously low wages for their labourers such that they are effectively using such labourers as slaves --- adding to China's already negative human rights record evidenced in their oppression of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion.

Additionally, two Chinese-built vehicles have MISERABLY FAILED Euro-NCAP collision safety standards.



I guarantee you that if you EVER DARE to import so much as ONE Chinese-built vehicle onto American (OR CANADIAN) soil, not only will I NEVER consider ANY Chrysler, Dodge, or Jeep vehicle in my future purchases EVER AGAIN --- BUT I will ALSO PERSONALLY START THE BIGGEST BACKLASH YOUR COMPANY HAS EVER EXPERIENCED!

Remember WHO pays your bills --- YOUR AMERICAN BASE!
American customers DEMAND quality vehicles BUILT in the U. S. A. and Canada --- NOT CHINA!

And considering how much the Chinese have already dumped on our shores in a predatory fashion just as the Japanese did in the 1970s to basically KILL our electronics industry --- YOU ARE CUTTING YOUR OWN THROATS AND KILLING YOUR INDUSTRY IN THIS COUNTRY IF YOU ATTEMPT ANY FURTHER EFFORT TO SATISFY YOUR "BOTTOM LINE" MENTALITY BY MAKING ANY FURTHER EFFORTS TO BRING ANY CHINESE-BUILT VEHICLES ONTO AMERICAN OR CANADIAN SOIL!

Do what's right for AMERICAN and Canadian customers and reject ANY deal that puts ANY Chinese-built cars trucks or off-road vehicles on American OR Canadian soil.

Here is a link to the Chrysler email webform.

You can simply tick (NO) where it asks if your email is related to a vehicle-related enquiry and then give them the information I have given you above, give them your own information in that regard about your opposition to their plan to import Chinese vehicles to the United States, and/or paraphrase what I have written into your own words.


Incidentally you will note that I placed references to Canadian manufacturers as well. You need to pass this along to your email contacts at once and let them know how important it is to preserve and protect the American automotive market!



Without question, the current Interstate 30 is, with exception to Pennsylvania Congressman Bud Shuster's Interstate 99 and the San Francisco Bay Area's "Interstate 238", the most misaligned interstate on the grid. And for an x0 interstate it has a terribly short run.

In my last report on this series we relocated Interstate 30 to a southerly corridor linking Texarkana, AR to Birmingham, AL. Now we can concentrate on a corridor that utilises that freed corridor and then extends further south still, thus providing a direct route from Chicago to the heart of Texas.

Enter Interstate 57 which gets a well-deserved southern extension.
Already we know that the interstate route hardly gets out of Illinois before reaching its present termination point at Interstate 55 near Sikeston MO. But we have a new solution for this as it reaches into the growing South, and especially into rapidly-growing Arkansas and even into the Lone Star State.

The extended I-57 follows US60 west of Sikeston before following a new route that connects more directly to Penermon and Bernie, both in Stoddard County, before following MO25 south to Kennett then following a new direct path into Arkansas, tying directly to Jonesboro and Newport before following US67 down to Little Rock. Some of US67 is already practically at interstate grade as it is...making the transition to the I-57 even easier.

At Little Rock all of the old x30 routes would become x57 routes. Past that, it's a simple matter of establishing new signs. In other words, simply replacing the I-30 with the I-57 works well.

Into Texas, the interstate follows US59 and then TX155 to Tyler, then to Palestine, where it follows US79 in its southwestern run to Rockdale, then veers off in a more southerly direction to Elgin then to the southeastern part of Austin where it connects to the I-35.

In the Lone Star State x57 routes could be used in and around Austin and even Tyler, with a spur to Longview and the I-20, maybe an I-357 could make that connection along US259. An I-257 could form an outer east/west loop round some of Austin. And then Tyler could pick up an I-657 unless TxDOT seek to use one of the remaining x20s for that area.

For Arkansas and Texas, the Texarkana area could benefit from an I-857 or even a new I-430 loop, and though it makes the area appear like Kansas City on a smaller scale with the I-435 going through Kansas and Missouri, that area continues to grow in its own right.And that is much the case for most of Arkansas and much of eastern and central Texas. With Gilmer, Buffalo, Franklin, and Milano also gaining interstate access, and Natural State communities like Sherwood, Jacksonville, Searcy, and Bradford also getting on the Interstate Highway System, the I-57 will provide yet another vital link from the Gulf Coast and Mexico to the Great Lakes that is becoming increasingly necessary.

And though we will never see the elimination of American boundaries we will see the global trade network continue to grow as we will also continue to see our economic base grow.The route also provides improved access for the agrarian areas of Texas, Arkansas, and even Missouri to greater markets like the Great Lakes region. Chicago and even Indiana and Wisconsin will readily feel the effects; St Louis will also benefit with reduced truck traffic on their bridges; those trucks can travel from Texas and Mexico on another direct route to Chicago...which could see their reputation for commerce boosted yet even further and provide gains as far-reaching as Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and even Detroit. Another spur from Newport could connect to Walnut Ridge, even to Pocahontas.

And the I-57 would improve the safety of thousands upon thousands of Southern drivers as heavier traffic could be taken off of some rural routes yet a major interstate artery would still remain in place and remain viable, even with a new designation.


MySpace.com Practise Censorship By Attacking Conservative Users---From A Conservative Victim Of MySpace

The administrators at MySpace.com dumped my account in violation of the law AND my First Amendment freedom of speech rights yesterday afternoon and now they won't allow me to create a new account!I was innocently using the services of the site, innocently networking and making new friends, when suddenly I found myself facing the following message: Invalid ID, The member has closed their account, or the profile has been deleted, and then I discovered an email from MySpace telling me that my account had been deleted for a "violation of Terms of Service".
"Your MySpace account has been deleted for violating our Terms of Service. "
So-called "violations" which they did not specify, but just gave their usual laundry list of false reasons.
"This is usually due to one of the following: * Nude images, sexually suggestive or violent photos"
Of which I had NONE OF.
"* Covering our banner ads with HTML"
I wouldn't know how to do that so that's out of the question
"* Harassing other users"
Impossible. I may have rebutted a liberal here and there but in the end it's my GOD-GIVEN right backed by the United States Constitution to rebut any lies uttered by the Left.
"* You do not meet the minimum age requirement "
I'm 35 so that obliterates that reason.
"* Spamming the classifieds, forums, bulletins, or other sections of the site "
I NEVER did any of that; I simply USED the FEATURES of the site in protected free speech.
"* Attempting to artificially inflate scores"
I don't know how to do that!
"* Scripting the site"
I don't know how to do that either!
"Your account cannot be restored. If you choose to return to MySpace, please follow the rules. "
This is all the more reason News Corporation should terminate the administrator who illegally dumped my profile with almost 900 friends, for the SECOND TIME in one month, and all the more reason MySpace.com need to be prosecuted for fraud and for civil rights violations!


Your Tax Dollars At Work: Unnecessary Highway Sign Font Manipulation

In some states you have started seeing a strange new font appear on some of your highway signs. You may hvae noticed that a number of the letters and numbers don't look quite the way they used to.
The reason: The federal government have started publishing standards for how to implement this new font, called "Clearview".
And you are paying for this rather radical adjustment to your signage.
It is already becoming more commonplace throughout Arkansas, Texas, and Pennsylvania. But just because PennDot, ADOT, and TxDot like it, is it really necessary?
The study says yes...and the idea is that instead of using standard FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) fonts which come in series A through F with a super boldfaced E Modified font, the latter of which has become de rigueur in Oklahoma and to a lesser extent Missouri, but which has become standard for most state route markers in Oklahoma, with the exception of the new Oklahoma state markers.
The new Oklahoma markers debuted in January with an outline of the state near the top of the frame and the usually D-series FHWA font numbers near the bottom, with some three-digit numbers getting C-series and a few B-series.

(LEFT---An example of an Oklahoma interstate route marker with E Modified numbers and letters)
(RIGHT---(TOP) New Oklahoma state route markers, debuted in January 2006; (CENTRE) Old Oklahoma state route markers, used since the 1960s; (BOTTOM) Old Oklahoma state route markers with E Modified numbers, used in the 1990s and 2000s)

But back to the Clearview/FHWA Standards: I really don't see the need for a new font if the enhanced visibility is only a small fraction (11 to 15 percent) or even if the font uses a smaller footprint in some cases than the FHWA counterpart.
And besides, if the conditions are heavily fogged, or if you are experiencing reduced vision, it doesn't matter what you use on your signs, you are going to have greater difficulty reading the signs.
The FHWA's, TxDot's, and Penndot's own studies show that there is not that much improvement in the visibility in Clearview Series 5WR over FHWA Standard Series D or E, though Series E---that is the font you most commonly see on most highway signs in the United States, Spain, Holland, South Africa (which are using more Normschrift, the font series common to road signs in Germany), Australia (though the state of Victoria, which have begun implementing UK-style letter-number combination route designations, like M1, A2, and B3, are also using Transport, which is common to UK roads and to some extent Pennsylvania), New Zealand, and most provincial highways in Canada.
This may be a sign for you to take better care of your eyes in the first place, see an ophthamologist as necessary, I have, and used to use reading glasses for a while in my teens, and later wore prescription sunglasses, and definitely DO NOT forget to take Vitamin A or at the least eat Vitamin A-enriched foods like carrots.
Also to note that states need to start making larger signs with much larger fonts, which is the experience in Oklahoma and Missouri. Modot are now using larger and bolder fonts with slightly smaller route markers which may well be a disadvantage on that part if you are trying to figure out what route you are about to take especially in dark and/or inclement conditions.
As for ODOT, you can see clearly that their experience is to use bolder fonts and sometimes larger route markers, at least in Tulsa you will see wider route markers for Interstate 244 with bolder numbers. It is not uncommon to see US Highway Route markers still bearing the bolder numbers although most US highway signs bear D Series.

(Hypothetical examples of typical motorway junction overhead signage. In reality State Highway 17 in California is ACTUALLY north/south in Counties Santa Clara and Santa Cruz; also, California have not used white state route markers since 1964.)

(A) Current FHWA standards; (B) Clearview proposal; (X) My solution

Maybe I should offer my own solution to the problem: Fill the whole sign, larger markers as with Oklahoma, larger fonts as with Missouri, but even bigger still, FILL THE SIGN with text and route markers, as much as 25 percent larger markers and 25 to 35 percent larger fonts, that way there can be no doubt about the legibility of the signs.
And we won't need another series of fonts to mess with either.
