Frenetic Friday


And what a week it’s been folks.  Well we have a little bit of everything here even some Robotic Over Lords!

So this appears in my feed in the first part of the week

Now let’s state the obvious only one combination is going to keep you in your seat on a plane.  And frankly if the others are actually offered I’m not flying KLM I’ve been in turbulence.  But this is the best response I have seen.

HT: Doug Wilson

And then we have a new update from the culture of death featuring James Franco.

Pay special attention to Franco’s face as Princeton philosophy professor Elizabeth Harman gives her argument for aborting some babies.  No matter how she tries to justify it her argument just doesn’t hold water and Franco’s face reflects it. 

And in the culture wars a former soldier who is transgender warns about the danger of gender dysphoria in the military.   One of the most interesting quote of that article is this:

When a service member becomes nondeployable because of gender transition related surgery, they’re going to not only not be on duty in some cases, but they will also be on light duty for most or all of that time.

They’ll have a medical profile against either performing their duties at all, or one that limits them. Commanders are forced to respect these limitations. But the health and fighting capabilities of a military unit are determined by how many of its members are deployable. It’s that serious.

As a former platoon sergeant I know this to be true.

Think about that.  

And now our Robotic Over Lord’s.

First something truly terrifying.

Who thought giving the robot a sword was a good idea?

And now let us send the kids out of the room.

So there are these things called sexbots.  That apparently are being programmed to be used in rape fantasies.  And yes it is amazing just how depraved men are.  

 But riding in on the robotic white horse comes Professor John Banzhaf, a well-known activist professor of public interest law at George Washington University Law School.  He is concerned about the sexbots being used in such a manner and he wants Congress to rule and regulate the sexbots industry.  (Click on the link if you want to read the article)

Now is it me or does he want Congress to regulate a type of sexbot prostitution?  

But on another note the thought of people having sex with robots reminds me of a quote from  That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis:

 There dwell an accursed people, full of pride and lust. There when a young man takes a maiden in marriage, they do not lie together, but each lies with a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts, for real flesh will not please them, they are so dainty (delicati) in their dreams of lust. Their real children they fabricate by vile arts in a secret place.”

And this ends another Frenetic Friday.

Frenetic Friday


Here it is again Friday are you feeling frenetic? I myself am feeling that way and so let’s get started.

Well the Church of England is slowly but surely slipping loose from whatever moorings it had that attached it to scripture. The Church of England has announced that it will create special liturgical services for transgendered people. Now please let us take a moment and think what this means, they are creating a special worship service for people who think they are a different gender than what is their biological sex. A worship service. Let me say that again, a worship service. A worship service to welcome their transition. Now of course this wasn’t a unanimous vote there were those that opposed this but they were overwhelmed by those that have gone with the world. Read the full story here

And sticking to this subject seems that according to Zinnia Jones a “trans activist” and a “transgendered woman” straight men need to start dating “trans women” and if they don’t want to date “trans women” they should “try to work through that”. But what if straight men have no desire whatever to date these “trans women” well that is “misplaced and inappropriate” See the tweets here.

So it seems that Teen Vogue, remember this is a magazine targeted at teenagers, has written an article on how to do a specific sex act. Let me repeat what I wrote a few words ago, this is a magazine targeted at teenagers.

In the article the magazine used the terms “prostrate owner” and “non prostrate owner”. Well when YouTuber Laci Green used the terms “male” and “female” the Social Justice Warriors went ballistic. Seems terms like male and female, basic biological terms, are hate speech to the “trans activists”.  Story here.

By the way the Federalist has an excellent article entitled: Why you should intervene if your daughter reads raunchy teen magazines.  I suggest you read this if you have teenage girls.

 

And that is it for this Friday night.  Have a good weekend, go to church.

 

Frenetic Friday


Yes it’s true, at long last the first Frenetic Friday of the year.

So as regards to politics well frankly I am waiting until the old president leaves and the new president is sworn in before I start paying attention too much to all of this however, I do want to point you to this podcast by Mike Rowe.  He’s the dirty jobs guy in case you didn’t know and he has a podcast called The Way I heard it with Mike Rowe.  But I would especially point you to Episode 36 titled: “Oh Brother” it does put a few things in perspective.  Give it a listen.

So have you’ve heard of Camille Pagilia right?  She is famous or infamous for her critic of feminism but here in this video she points out that transgender mania is actually a sign of cultural collapse and points to history that shows this what happens before the culture ends.

Speaking of marriage let me introduce to the newest couple, I mean  single, I mean couple, okay I am confused what is going on here?  Erika Anderson stands on rooftop in Brooklyn and marries herself to herself.  What?  Yep it seems that the latest trend in marriage is not a same sex couple, not  multiple partners (polygamy/polyamory), nope the latest trend is marrying yourself.  Instead of two becoming one, the one is becoming one.  And as Rebecca Traister, author of All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation says:  “It’s not a legal process — you won’t get any tax breaks for marrying yourself. It’s more a “rebuke” of tradition.”  No kidding.  But it appears to be a semi lucrative business as “on the website I Married Me, you can buy a DIY marriage kit: For $50, you get a sterling silver ring, ceremony instructions, vows, and 24 “affirmation cards” to remind you of your vows over time. For $230, you can get the kit with a 14-karat gold ring.”  <source>

BTW in 2013 in an blog post on the Pyromaniac’s Blog Frank Turk predicted this very thing based on the rise of same sex marriage.  See here

Also a sad good by to one of the more articulate and erudite bloggers Frank Turk.  He has decided to close shop and leave blogging and twitter.  His farewell post is here:  The End  I owe much to Frank he along with Phil Johnson and Dan Phillips alway made me think deeper and clearer even if I didn’t agree with them.  Farewell sir, God speed.

And good night to you all.

 

Frenetic Friday


It’s late, really late, it’s been delayed by one thing or another but no more excuses Frenetic Friday is back!

So let’s talk politics. Wait I know what your thinking, politics have been all you’ve heard since the end of the election. Well let’s see if we can change it up a bit. Besides we have a Robotic Over Lord a little bit later that is long over due.

So the electorial college. Why is it that every time that someone wins by the electoral vote but not the popular vote they immediately call for the end of the electoral college? You know there is a specific reason the founders of this country choose to create this institution and I think this explains it the best.

Also take a read of this article in the Washington Post by Allen Gulezo and James Hulme: In Defense of the electoral college

So have you heard of the “safety-pin movement”?  In short this little bit of social activism says that by fastening a safety-pin to an article of clothing it is telling the “maligned, threatened or intimidated” people that they, the safety-pin wearers are safe and that they are not people supported President-elect Trump. A few of my close friends refer to this as the diaper pin wearing group. And i will admit that has merit but another friend of mine came up with this pin:
Hand Grenade Safety Pin
Yes that is the safety-pin from a hand grenade. And frankly if we are going to be pinning safety pins to our clothing I think that is a better pin than one made for holding a diaper together.

Ok you wanted it, you have asked for it, it is time for the Robotic Over Lords!
And remember I welcome our new Over Lords.

So did you notice that all over the country they were raising minimum wage? What has this to do with robots? Funny you should ask. Because of rising wages and that the big golden arches are losing money they have embraced a new technology the automatic kiosk.

And while we are at it welcome to the new robot burger chef:

Sure there will still be a minimal crew to make sure the robots are working correctly and to clean up and put the money away but as the robots get more efficient stores that would have employed say ten people or more will only need two at the most.
And don’t think that MacDonald’s is the only one getting onto this gig. Behold the Froyo frozen yogurt robot!

That is right you punch in what you want feed it money and the robotic arms make it for you.
Franchises opening as we speak.
For this next one the kids will need to leave the room.

So in the book That Hideous Strength by C. S. Lewis there was a paragraph that always stuck out to me.

Ransom replied, “Sulva is she whom mortals call the Moon. She walks in the lowest sphere. The rim of the world that was wasted goes through her. Half of her orb is turned toward us and shares our curse. Her other half looks to Deep Heaven; happy would be he who could cross that frontier and see the fields on her further side. On this side, the womb is barren and the marriages are cold. There dwell an accursed people, full of pride and lust. There when a young man takes a maiden in marriage, they do not lie together, but each lies with a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts, for real flesh will not please them, they are so dainty (delicati) in their dreams of lust. Their real children they fabricate by vile arts in a secret place

That phrase “a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by devilish arts” is by devilish arts coming true. The Daily Mail is predicting that by 2017 we will have actual Sex Bots with warm genitalia orifices and that talk and respond to touch. They will be configured to whatever the customer desires no matter how depraved. And that is all for the Robotic Over Lords.

And let me leave you with this from our weird and wonderful basket. Are you tired of people being behind you and flashing their high beams? Well someone in China has invented a stick that shows a ghostly image or words if you wish when illuminated by high beams. The idea is to scare the other driver and make them turn off their beam. However Chinese police say if an accident is caused by this then the owner of the sticker will be fined.

Frenetic Friday!


Frenetic Friday or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Sweet Sweet Meteor of Death.  

And a strange love it is indeed!

So it is eleven days until the election and I am not going to tell you whom to vote for frankly I think that people that tell you to vote for one person or the other because if you don’t then you’re the reason why (insert candidate here) didn’t/did get in to office.  Are part of the problem not the solution.  Your vote belongs to you and you must decide whom to vote for or not vote for and that is your right.

Speaking of numbers here is a report from the Duffle Blog that shows that amongst World War 1 veterans Hillary Clinton is heavily supported.

Oh and now a Public Service Announcement:  Last Living WWI Veteran dies in 2011

 

And I think Andrew Klavan directed me to this and frankly I almost wet myself laughing and you will too.

So do you remember that list of Prager University videos that I posted? Yes the videos that have been restricted by YouTube. Well they have done it again with the latest video. Take a look here:

Do you suffer from the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect? What is the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect? The late author Michael Crichton explains:

“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them.

In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.

That is the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect. I’d point out it does not operate in other arenas of life. In ordinary life, if somebody consistently exaggerates or lies to you, you soon discount everything they say. In court, there is the legal doctrine of falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus, which means untruthful in one part, untruthful in all. But when it comes to the media, we believe against evidence that it is probably worth our time to read other parts of the paper. When, in fact, it almost certainly isn’t. The only possible explanation for our behavior is amnesia.” Gell-Mann Amnesia

It’s been pointed out to me that there is this holiday that is coming up that causes people to dress up in costumes. So as a public service we bring you this from Rebel Media:

Fred Butler over at Hip and Thigh was recently on Echo Zoe Radio and gave his opinion on Halloween and Christians it is worth listening.

And in honor of the 499th anniversary of the protestant reformation I give you the Lutheran Insulter

And it is Monday…


Prager U is reporting that YouTube in it’s infinite wisdom is limiting access to 21 videos that YouTube has deemed contain harmful, or dangerous activities.  (It also restricts those with vulgar language, violence and disturbing imagery, nudity and sexually suggestive content.)  I have seen most if not all of the videos and you should too so without further ado here is the list:

1. Are The Police Racist?
This video explores the debate that the police are targeting African-American communities.

2. Why Don’t Feminists Fight for Muslim Women?
Why do feminists claim to be champions of women’s rights everywhere, but do not fight for women facing oppression in Muslim countries? This video attempts to answer that question.

3. Why Did America Fight the Korean War?
Due to just slashing its military budget, why did America choose to get involved in this fight?

4. Who’s More Pro-Choice: Europe or America?
This video examines the fact that western Europeans are much more conservative about abortion than American progressives.

5. What ISIS Wants
What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from? What does it want? This video examines all these questions and more.

6. Why Are There Still Palestinian Refugees?
Israel is a nation of refugees, and especially refugees from Arab countries. This video examines why.

7. Are 1 in 5 Women Raped at College?
According to many gender activists, academics, and politicians, college campuses can be promoters of a “rape culture.”

8. Islamic Terror: What Muslim Americans Can Do
This video examines how American Muslims can lead a winning fight toward radical Islam.

9. Did Bush Lie About Iraq?
This video clarifies the belief that President George W. Bush lied his way into the war in Iraq.

10. Who NOT to Vote For
Without naming parties or names, this video talks about what one should keep in mind when heading to the ballot box.

11. Do Not Murder
Out of all the 10 Commandments, one would think that “do not murder” would be the most self-explanatory of all. PragerU President Dennis Prager examines why this is not the case.

12. Is America Racist?
This video discusses President Barack Obama’s claim that “racism is in our DNA.”

13. Israel: The World’s Most Moral Army
Is the Israeli military “a paragon of morality and wartime ethics” or “an oppressive force that targets innocent Palestinian civilians and commits war crimes as a matter of policy?” Col. Richard Kemp, a commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, answers this question.

14. Radical Islam: The Most Dangerous Ideology
In the earlier part of the 20th century, the answer to this question was fascism. Raymond Ibrahim, author of “The Al Qaeda Reader,” examines why the answer to this question today is radical Islam.

15. The Most Important Question About Abortion
Dennis Prager, president of PragerU, discusses the most critical question of this debate.

16. Why Do People Become Islamic Extremists?
This video examines what drives a person to become an Islamic extremist and even a suicide bomber.

17. Don’t Judge Blacks Differently
How come the election of this nation’s first African-American president did not usher in a “new era of racial harmony”? This video examines why.

18. What is the University Diversity Scam?
Are colleges places of “racism, sexism, and homophobia?” This video talks about why some believe this to be college culture today.

19. He Wants You
This video discusses the differences between how men and women perceive each other.

20. Israel’s Legal Founding
When Israel was founded in 1948, it was approved by the United Nations. With this being the case, why do Israel’s enemies relentlessly attack this nation’s existence?

21. Pakistan: Can Sharia and Freedom Coexist?
Is is possible for freedom to coexist in a country based on “religious Sharia Islamic law?”

Frenetic Friday


From the eighty-sixth floor of the Empire State building the man of bronze’s golden eyes widened, turning to his five companions he said: “It’s Frenetic Friday!”

Sometimes I think that it is all a great conspiracy.  Take for instance this:

This is a picture from Babylon Bee where they satirically write that Elevation Church is putting in water slides to speed up baptisms.
Then Snopes that bastion of truth and internet debunking chimes in with a post about Babylon Bee and how it is a satire website and no Elevation Church isn’t really putting in a water slide.

Then there is this:.

Yep there it is they are getting baptized by going down a water slide.  Folks I can’t make this stuff up,

From there let’s go to Portland Oregon.  In specific let’s go to Pips Original Doughnuts and Chai where they have advertised for help with one proviso if you are vegan or vegetarian you need not apply.  Here is the ad they placed in the paper:

BASIC requirements: ( PLEASE DO NOT APPLY unless you meet or exceed 1-6)
1. You love serving people and have a friendly, outgoing personality but understand
 when to be chatty and when to move the line along. -We don’t need another moody 
hipster providing lame service in Portland.
2. One year experience working quickly and accurately in a fast-paced food service job.
3. Basic barista skills: Steaming milk & pouring a basic heart. IF you show promise and
 meet or exceed all other requirements and we think you are a good fit, we will help
 refine your skills.
4. Stamina, strength & endurance. It can be very busy and you must be able to lift at 
least 50 lbs on a regular basis.
5. Enjoy working in a fast-paced, multifaceted, & dynamic environment with a tight team.
6. No non-medical, non-religious dietary restrictions that would stop you from
 tasting, accurately representing our food and maintaining quality control to 
maintain the highest standards of food safety and excellence. We serve products 
with meat ( including bacon) nuts, diary and our doughnuts contain wheat gluten.

 

Yep it is number six that has raised the ire of the vegans and vegetarians in Portland.  And boy howdy they are out for um wheat grass?  But the owners are standing firm or as they put it how can you tell if the quality of the product is good if you can’t eat the product?  I just wonder how long it is going to be before the tolerance police close them down.  But wait I forgot they’re not a Christian baker.  <source>

Now to our neighbors up in the north from the Daily Wire is a report that the University of Toronto is suspending temporarily the transgender bathroom policy they enacted because of  two separate instances where males (Oh no he is using binary based nouns!) were caught holding there cell phones over the female students shower stalls and taking pictures.  Something I could have told them was going to happen but they didn’t consult me at the time.  In the mean time the University has designated some bathrooms only for males, some only for females and some gender neutral.

Here are two of the student’s responses to the change:

One freshman told the paper that the issue “is not strictly about someone taking pictures; it is about a violation of the trust that our residence experience is based on.”

Another student told the paper that she was “disappointed” that the incident happened. “I have more faith in people than that,” she said. <source>

You know speaking of perverted things this popped up in my news alerts and I was so gob smacked by it that I had to share with you:

A US court has ruled it is legal to film up a woman’s skirt without consent due to a “gap” in the law surrounding invasion of privacy.

Brandon Lee Gary was prosecuted in 2013 on a single count of “unlawful eavesdropping and surveillance” after he was witnessed several times on CCTV footage taking video recordings with a mobile phone beneath the skirt of a customer while she was shopping.

Gary, who was employed by the supermarket when the filming occurred, admitted to the charge at a trial in Houston County Superior court where he was found guilty.

A spilt ruling at Georgia’s Court of Appeal on 15 July reversed the invasion of privacy conviction against a Gary, after he appealed on the basis that he did not violate state law as it is written,

In Court of Appeal documents published by US news site Patch, Judge Elizabeth Branch writes: “The question before this court, however is not whether the defendant’s conduct was offensive; it is not whether a person walking in a public place has a reasonable expectation of privacy as to certain areas of her body; and it is not whether the victim’s privacy was violated.

“Rather, the only issue presented by this appeal is whether the defendant’ s conduct constitutes a criminal invasion of privacy…”

“[I]t is regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct,” she writes.

“Unfortunately, there is a gap in Georgia’s criminal statutory scheme, in that our law does not reach all of the disturbing conduct that has been made possible by ever-advancing technology.” <source>

Frankly I think the Georgia legislators had best be getting their work done and close that gap.

And last but not least a little something from Prager U:

Good Night!
