Yes kids, we are all going to hell in a hand-basket?
Why a hand-basket, you ask?
I have no idea, that’s just what everybody says!
As you probably know by now, Comic-con was held this past weekend in San Diego, and this group of girls/women (?) showed up dressed like this!
Aside from complaining that people (men) were leering at them, they also bitched (what an appropriate word) about some unnamed “men” [sic] were taking pictures of them without their permission!
Yup, that’s sexual harassment, all right!
(Maybe next time they should just stay home, have a pajama party, and tell each other what “beasts” men are!)

MILLVILLE, N.B. – A fire has destroyed the fire hall and the town council of a small community in northwestern New Brunswick.
Volunteer firefighters from several nearby departments responded to the blaze at the Millville hall at about 3:30 a.m.
The village is located about 60 kilometers northwest of Fredericton, near the Crabbe Mountain ski area.
(We don’t make this shit up folks!)

The British communications regulator Ofcom has ruled that a pre-scripted bit on the popular BBC TV show Top Gear was racist.
Top Gear, one of the most popular television shows in the world, showcases a variety of motor vehicles, and pretty much anything else that goes fast. The sometimes controversial show is presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
During a special episode, which was filmed in Burma and aired in March, the show’s hosts were standing on the River Kwai when…well…see for yourself:

Well ………, the word “slope” is sometimes used in Britain as a slang for “Oriental” but let’s facce it folks, it is funny, and witty enough, that I believe we can excuse any lapse in judgement or taste on this occasion!
On Sunday, Sarah Palin announced on YouTube that she is starting a new venture for those who can’t get enough right-wing misinformation packaged in a chirpy Midwestern accent. (See also: Glenn Beck’s The Blaze.) For a mere $10 a month, subscribers to the Sarah Palin Channel can gorge on the typical conservative news reports and anti-Obama hysteria offered by her competitors, with a twist: She’ll also serve up plenty of videos of the Palin family doing stuff around the house and probably shooting at things. “Believe me, it is fun,” Palin says in the introductory video. “Because it’s real life.”
NOTE: Your normally steadfast and strong reporter almost threw up watching this!

Like Beck and Rush Limbaugh (who also offers a members-only website, for a fee), Palin has built a personal brand around right-wing grievance: The Man is oppressing Real America, and Palin alone is brave enough to tell is like it is. “Are you tired of the media filters? Well, I am. I always have been,” explains Palin, a known victim of not being asked to be on TV as much as she’d like. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter, and things like Washington, D.C.’s crony capitalism,” she continues. “We’ll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won’t talk about. And we’ll look at the ideas that, mmmm, I think Washington doesn’t want you to hear.” She’s kicking off that promise with a video demanding the impeachment of Obama. (“Enough is enough from the years of abuse from this president,” Palin says in the video. “His unsecured border crisis, for me, is the last straw. It makes the battered wife say, ‘No mas. That’s enough.’”)
So while the $10-a-month paywall may seem like a bad idea in a world where video advertising has proved a more reliable way to make money while getting views, the subscription model may actually work in Palin’s case. Palin’s audience is composed of people who are steeped in the paranoid belief that everyone else is out to get them, a paranoia she’s happy to stoke at every turn. The paywall offers a sort of protection, then: A safe space to communicate without the fear that outsiders are listening in, and a rare enclave where a life that looks like “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” still persists.
