Finally - A Post!  

Tuesday, January 30, 2007

Life has gotten pretty busy around here - even to the point of conisdering giving up the blog. Every blogger gets to that point, though, so I have been hanging in there. It's not that I haven't been reading sites, though I have been reading less. It's just that I've added more family time to my week, and blogging has had to take the back seat. I'm sure you understand. Eventually things will smooth out some and I'll be able to organize my time in a fashion that will give me more time to blog.

I did see a couple of things of note last week in my travels through the blogosphere. First, Dr. Adams made a few really awesome points about what passes for "gay rights" these days - apparently these "rights" include masturbating in public. Dr. Adams, in his spirit of giving and sarcasm, offered his services as a substitute teacher for the professor who had been arrested for masturbating in public in Atlanta. His lesson plan includes the following discussion questions:

1. The university has, in recent years, placed a high premium on making students feel "comfortable" in a university setting. How comfortable do you feel taking a class from a public masturbator?

2. Next month, the university will sponsor "The Vagina Monologues." On a scale of one to ten, how badly would you like to see a film called "The Angina Monologues," which chronicles a man's recovery from a heart attack induced by seeing another man masturbating in an airport restroom?

3. An Atlanta TV station recently reported that no public masturbator had yet sexually assaulted anyone in an Atlanta Airport. But some were watching small children urinate in order to become sexually aroused. If a small child had been aware of this, was he not a victim of assault?

4. What are the public health benefits to be derived from ejaculating on the floor of a public restroom?

5. What are the public health benefits to be derived from impersonal sex?

6. How much money do we spend on AIDS research relative to cancer research?

Why the imbalance? Are professors the ones responsible for this? If so, why?

7. Is it more likely that Professor Tilson will be a) fired or b) promoted to a high- paying administrative position in the Office of Campus Diversity as a result of his recent arrest?

8. Would your answer to the previous question change if Tilson were arrested in the ladies restroom?

9. Does Pee Wee Herman regret his decision not to become a college professor?

10. Which profession has lower moral standards: a) The acting profession, or b) the professoriate?
Now this person has not been convicted of anything at this point, but Dr. Adams makes some very good points about how the rest of us are supposed to respect and make these people comfortable, while they don't grant the rest of us that same courtesy.

I'm prepared to vote for this man for president.


Every now and again, we get someone who's willing to take on the issue of black racism. It gets very annoying when one of the bigots that pass as "black leaders" are called on the carpet for saying or doing something racist, and the one doing the talking gets thrown down and called a racist, simply because he or she is not black and therefore must be a racist.

It is very nice to know, however, that there are "people of color" who are also willing to take on this task. Of course they run the same risk, except instead of being called "racist", they get called "Uncle Tom" or something to that effect. It doesn't make them any less right.

Burt Prelutsky did just that last week, and he hit it hard.
The whole question of race is a dicey one. Pity the poor fool who wades into those troubled waters. Well, here goes...

If a black person tells the truth -- namely, that in 2007, 99% of black problems are self-inflicted -- he is, like BillCosby and Thomas Sowell, dismissed as an Uncle Tom. If a white person tells the truth -- namely, that with a 70% illegitimacy rate, no amount of government hand-outs will do anything but provide the cancer victim with a very expensive band-aid -- he's condemned as a racist.
This is absolutely true, and it's about time it's stopped. Hopefully Prelutsky doesn't get condemned for speaking out. He also makes sure he calls socialists what they are - SOCIALISTS!

I hope this passes as a post. Please hang in there, ok?
