Promote the welfare/warfare state, sure, but not with images of guns, please!

Ya gotta laugh.

Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School was happy to host a recruiter from the New York National Guard. But they were not happy with some of the swag he was handing out, particularly a t-shirt showing a guardsman holding a rifle. The school dress code bars students from wearing anything depicting a weapon. The recruiter agreed not to hand out anymore of the shirts. The students who’d already gotten one were told they could wear it that day but should not come back to school in it.

So, promoting fighting to defend the state’s interest = good; showing the tools they use to do so = bad.

Got it.

Homeschool / private school / church school your kids!

And why bother with joining a state militia; in the event of an invasion, or similar threat, just pick up a gun and become a bushwhacker!

Students: Transgender Woman Can’t Be Diversity Officer Because She’s a White Man Now

You gotta laugh. :)

A student who was born female felt perfectly comfortable identifying as a man at Wellesley College — until people said he shouldn’t be class diversity officer because he is now a white male.

Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him.

And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome on campus — until the day he announced that he wanted to run for the school’s office of multicultural affairs coordinator, whose job is to promote a “culture of diversity” on campus.

But some students thought that allowing Boatwright to have the position would just perpetuate patriarchy. They were so opposed, in fact, that when the other three candidates (all women of color) dropped out, they started an anonymous Facebook campaign encouraging people not to vote at all to keep him from winning the position.

 

Minority vegan SJWs upset that their favourite sweary ‘thug’ vegan cookbook is actually written by two white hipsters

Sheeit!

It was only a matter of time before Thug Kitchen scored a book deal.
The wildly popular (and equally as profane) vegan cooking blog has been dazzling internet audiences for years with its humorous take on nutrition, racking up more than 500,000 fans on Facebook alone with its decidedly “gangsta” approach to food preparation.
“Eat like you give a f***” reads the tagline for Thug Kitchen’s website — a repository of nearly 50 healthy, vegan recipes for relatively innocuous sounding dishes like “spring asparagus risotto” and “peanut tempeh summer rolls.”
“These sons of b**ches are chock full of all kinds of healthy sh** for you and tastes like a goddamn flavor explosion in your f***ing mouth,” reads a portion of the recipe for the tempeh rolls.
“You like burritos? Of course you do. Who the f*** doesn’t? Then you’ll love this sh** right here. Wrap that sh** up.”
[...]
The conversation surrounding Thug Kitchen took a turn on Sunday, however, when Epicurious revealed the long-hidden identities of the duo behind the series: Michelle Davis and Matt Holloway, both 29, of Los Angeles.
[...]
The fact that Thug Kitchen was created by two white Angelinos struck a nerve with many online.

 
Aw, poor babies!

Don’t riot and burn down Los Angeles, now, in revenge!

 

John Kerry says America has a Biblical responsibility to protect Muslims from ‘climate change’

Here’s your laugh of the day.

Citing scripture, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that protection of majority Muslim countries included actions against climate change, because those nations are most susceptible.

At a ceremony to install Texas Lawyer Shaarik H. Zafar as the Special Representative to Muslim Communities for the State Department in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 3, Kerry said stewardship of the planet is stated overtly in Genesis and that the Christian and Muslim faiths are “inextricably linked.”

“Our faiths are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today,” Kerry said. “Our faiths are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain His first creation, Earth, the planet. Before God created man He created Heaven and Earth.

“Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in scriptures, clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of Earth. And for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God.”

Not much of a Scripture ‘citation’, there: where’s chapter and verse? His ‘proof text’?

Even from a perspective that we’ve been given ‘stewardship‘ of the Earth, we don’t have to fear ‘global warming’ destroying us; we have God’s own promise that we won’t be destroyed by flooding, of the apocalyptic type we’re told would result from the icecaps melting, etc.

As for the Muslims, Christians have a duty to proselytize and evangelize them, same as all other non-Christians. But that’s all. And America is just a state like any other; not a messianic nation with a divine mission to accomplish anything for Christ, period. That’s up to God’s people, not to a country or a government, per se. Those who think otherwise have embraced a heresy, frankly.

John Kerry is a stupid fool.

Besides, he didn’t even get the memo touting the current party line

 

Homeless drunkard / stoner guy doesn’t sleep on the street every night, because of Game

Interesting.

If you were homeless, could you still pick up chicks?

Meet Joe, the homeless Millennial who has mastered the art of getting women to take him home with them.

Originally from Boston, Joe, 26, may spend his daylight hours panhandling in Manhattan – making up to $150 on a given day – but his nights are a completely different ballgame.

If you don’t think Joe looks homeless, well, that’s only because he’s good at what he does. According to Joe, his only responsibility is to not look homeless. In his mind, his appearance is a survival tactic.

Joe spends whatever money he makes on keeping his appearance up, in addition to copious amounts of drugs and booze, with one goal in mind: attract as many girls as possible.

For Joe, sleeping with a lady is his only chance at sleeping with a roof over his head. Joe uses his charm and good looks to sleep out with chicks three to four nights a week, where he’ll shower and enjoy an evening away from the streets.

 

D’Oh!

 

Chinese men and women are paying virtual girlfriends / boyfriends to listen to them complain about work

Incredible.

They say money can’t buy happiness, but it sure can buy empathy in China. Lonely businessmen are actually paying women up to $5 a day, just for a few kind words and a bit of understanding. A similar service is available for women as well.

Many young men and women are making quick money by offering the service through Taobao – China’s leading e-commerce website. They call themselves ‘virtual girlfriends/boyfriends’, and they’re willing to listen to their clients complaining about a tough day at work.

Male clients have a range of virtual girlfriend personalities to choose from, including ‘doll-like girls’, ‘mature women’, and ‘the girl next door’. For women, the choices include ‘men in uniform’, ‘CEO’, ‘handsome men’ and ‘comforting men’.

Once you choose a virtual girlfriend or boyfriend, their services could cost you anywhere between 20 and 30 yuan ($3 to $5), depending on what you want them to do. They could give you wake-up calls in the morning, say good night at bedtime, feign concern at various times during the day, and send encouraging text messages.

Xiaomi, a businesswoman in her early 20s, decided to become a virtual girlfriend to boost the number of visitors to her Taobao store. It isn’t easy an easy job – she needs to keep track of her phone at all times, making sure she calls and replies to her customers on time.

But all the hard work has paid off – her site’s sales have increased, with daily transactions growing from 7 or 8 calls to over 500. She has even hired seven female part-time employees to help her out with the growing demand for mobile girlfriends.

We’re not sure how women are responding to the service, but the men seem to love it. “You just spend 20 to 30 yuan a day to make a single man’s dream come true! 100 likes!” said an enthusiastic client. Another guy said that he’s had a few humorous mobile girlfriends, which helped him relax and relieve stress.

Reports suggest that most men place their orders in the evening. According to Zhang Xiaoli, head of the China Association of Mental Health, most customers are probably just curious about the service. It’s also likely that people who are bored or lacking in social skills might want to engage a mobile friend.

How utterly odd. And sad; instead of meeting people of the opposite sex who feign interest and sympathy for money, like a whore, they could instead meet each other, go for a coffee or beer or whatever beverages Chinese like to drink socially, and do what single guys and single gals do in the West – bitch amongst friends of the same sex. Chances are they’d find REAL sympathy and understanding, and even some encouragement.

Or, get over their shyness, and pair off with someone of the opposite sex…

One wonders how small a percentage of Chinese society this must be. After all, given how big China is in population, on the surface, it certainly doesn’t seem like that many Chinese folk have problems meeting people of the opposite sex to date and marry – and to whom be able to bitch about work. ;)

But there are always outliers, even in the world’s largest country…
