Moonbats Try to Deny Human Nature; Foster “Blame The Boys” For Female Immodesty

leggings-600x413

Since when do dads think it is okay for their daughters to dress like sluts?

What in the hell has happened to parents in this culture?

Earlier this month, Haven Middle School administrators notified parents that female students are no longer allowed to wear shorts, leggings, or yoga pants because those articles of clothing might be “too distracting” for their male peers. That’s sparked a protest among parents and students in the Evanston, Illinois area, who are arguing it’s not girls’ responsibility to accommodate the boys in their classes.  SOURCE

But it’s perfectly okay to deny that 13 year old boys are loaded with hormones and really horny?  If girls present the curves, the boys are going to look.  Human life has been that way from the beginning of time.

More than 500 students have signed onto a petition protesting the new dress code policy, which they say is sexist because it’s only targeting girls’ clothing. Some female students have chosen to defy the ban and are wearing leggings and yoga pants to school in protest. A poster plastered in Haven Middle School reads, “Are my pants lowering your test scores?”

That’s mean.  Plain and simple.  That is mean.  And their parents are letting them do this?  Way to raise little ladies, Mom and Dad.

“Not being able to wear leggings because it’s ‘too distracting for boys’ is giving us the impression we should be guilty for what guys do,” one of the students participating in protest, 13-year-old Sophie Hasty, told the Evanston Review. “We just want to be comfortable!”

So do the boys, and by all reports, when they see young women’s curves, suddenly their jeans are UNcomfortable.  Yes, leggings and workout clothes are comfortable, but another comfortable layer OVER them will hide what is distracting the boys.

It’s not just the students who are getting involved, either. Two parents, Juliet and Kevin Bond,sent a letter to the school principal arguing that this approach toward the dress code is furthering unhealthy attitudes about sexuality. Targeting tight pants rests on the assumption that girls must work to prevent themselves from being ogled, rather than teaching boys they should work to avoid objectifying their female peers. The policy also links girls’ clothing to boys’ inability to control themselves.

Who’s side are these people on?  Yes, girls have to work to keep from being ogled.  That’s what getting dressed in the morning is all about.  As far as male/female, girl/boy, man/woman relations…it’s an innate instinct.  My four year old nephew had better moves as a two year old than most men.  All little girls compete for male attention.  ALL THE TIME.  Boys fight and get into contests to show off for girls.  It’s the way of things.  Be too revealing, though, and sooner or later some male is going to lose it.

Unreal.  Blame middle school boys for being middle school boys rather than teaching young girls how to be modest and mysterious to keep the boys at bay.  And why are the boys’ parents not protesting unfair incrimination?

So glad we went to schools with a uniform.

March 25: Day to Defend Life

annunciation

The Annunciation by Leonardo Da Vinci

Talk about life’s little ironies.

Today begins the opening arguments before the Supreme Court in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood vs. Sebelius case on religious liberty. Yes, it has to do with objecting to supplying certain sorts contraception through their employer paid health insurance plan.

Today is also the Solemnity of the Annunciation, the day we celebrate when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Blessed Mother and said:

Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”
But she was greatly troubled at what was said
and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
Then the angel said to her,
“Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God.
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
and you shall name him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High,
and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever,
and of his Kingdom there will be no end.”

Cold Wars, Climate Change And Black Gold. The World Dominance Trinity

oil-spill-volunteers

It used to be a nuisance.  Now it starts wars

Originally posted at Rat Nation

Is it possible….  Maybe, just maybe….  Could it be, that the reawakening of the Cold War, the “Climate Change” contortions of words and the Russian takeover of Ukraine all have the same root cause?

Oil, that is.  Black gold.  Texas Tea.  (Admit it.  You sang along.)

Could it be that a ruthless network of “leaders” want to be the ones to control the world energy market and so they are making moves to see to it that that happens?

Make energy exploration as unpopular as possible in the country poised – once again – to be the world’s undisputed leader in energy production and exportation with innovative ways of getting to the black sticky stuff, and maybe, just maybe, the people of that very country will reject energy supremacy on their own.

By playing Chicken Little.

Yet another reference our woefully under-educated educated people will not understand.

Twice in the past few days, the idea that the Climate Change crowd have been laboring in consort with energy interests has surfaced.  One source is Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace who appeared on Sean Hannity’s program and gave one of the most sustinct history of the earth lectures in under seven minutes anyone will ever hear.  (Rat discussed this here.)  Moore all but says the population was dumbed down so that energy interests could convince us that OUR actions in getting to and using energy sources could be villianized for the use of the energy brokers.

The other is the uncannily correct Wall Street Insider, a source of D.W. Ulsterman for a number of years, who had this to say:

It is economic politics, a very old game, from which the few are hoping to control the many.  Why the media does not indicate the truth of this, I don’t know.  Perhaps every mouth and pen has been bought out already.  Then again, I watch and read much less from any of that clatter these days.  Partly due to physical challenges, and partly due to it gives me a headache listening to impudent children lie so easily and so often.

Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russian government has “turned off the gas” to the Ukraine no fewer than forty times.  Some outside that realm know of that already, but what even fewer know is that former Ukraine President Yanukovych had just last year, approved a ten billion dollar LNG exploration agreement with U.S. based Chevron.  Please look it up yourself to confirm.  Three months later, and he is literally run out of office.  Coincidence?  You know better than that by now, don’t you?  If people would but pay closer attention to such agreements, they would have a far better idea of what may soon follow.  There is much money to be made off of such temporary destabilizations.  George certainly knows his way around such things, and I was informed CGI will enjoy a quite reasonable profit as well.

This coincides with the massive LNG reserves both known and projected, within the United States, and throughout North America.  While Russia and China share concerns of our potential to become the world leader in energy production, it is the Saudis and their Middle East partners, who have invested billions to prevent that very thing from happening.  Have you noted how the upheaval in the Ukraine has coincided almost to the day, with the media generated push to renew efforts to combat “climate change”?  Again, there are no coincidences here, and certainly far beyond the paltry sum of Mr. Steyer, who is nothing more than a foolish pawn.  What is the saying about a fool and his money?  Rather,  it is all part of a plan, now being orchestrated, with pertinent players intact, very much including the Man Calling Himself Obama.

There is a bit more to these WSI remarks at the Ulsterman site.  (LNG=liquid natural gas)

So, could it be, maybe, just maybe, “climate change” and Putin’s show of force is all about Russian, Chinese and Saudi Arabian attempted control over the world’s energy supplies?  After all, to have control of a people, one has to control communications and the basic necessities of life.  Energy has joined food, shelter and clothing as an essential.

If one goes back a bit in the 20th century, remember that American oil companies at one time DID have control of the Saudi oil fields.  They were nationalized in a gradual process between 1973 and 1988.  There were always additional sources of oil out there (all nationalized after American oil companies developed them), but Saudi oil is what was exported to the United States where we famously have an appetite for it.  If we were to develop our own resources, and drill on our own land, as proven oil reserves keep popping up, the cash cow for the Saudis gets slaughtered.

The rumor is Putin wants Alaska back for the very same reason.  After he punishes Ukraine for contracting with an American company for energy exploration, of course.

And the Occupier of the Oval Office yesterday makes a statement that we are going to go along with the international community or something in taking any sort of action or stance against Russia.  Is he THAT much in the Saudis’ pocket?

Barack Obama is headed to Saudi Arabia this month to discuss security issues….  I’ve got $100 that says he bows to the Saudi King again.  I know, it’s a sucker bet.  But this was announced BEFORE the Ukranian and Crimea events happened.  Did he know something the rest of us didn’t?

So, does this mean that we are headed for Cold War, Part II?  Doubtful.  Putin’s not afraid to actually shoot.  Previous Soviet leaders were more cautious, even when Carter was president.  (Our leadership appears to be lining up with Saudi Arabia who isn’t going to shoot at anybody.  We’ll end up doing it.  Maybe.)  This one may well have real battles, not just submarines circling each other in the North Atlantic.

Does this mean that there will be billions more spent on “clean energy”?  Another sucker bet.  Of course it does.  Climate Change is a combination cult and religion with all the missionary aspects of both.  That isn’t simply going to go away.  Plus, somebody out there is paying the people in power to see to it that it happens.

Does this mean that the divide and conquer tactics of the first two points result in the Saudi or Russian or Chinese takeover of the world’s energy markets?  We’ll see, but somehow with corporate interests having deep pockets and access to private security, they may end up doing the job our government in its current form won’t.

Does this mean that the Keystone XL Pipeline won’t get finished under Obama.  Absolutely. For all the reasons listed above.

God help us.

One thing is for sure, without a reasonably free internet and FoxNews we wouldn’t know all this.  Maybe Roger Ailes is one of the players in the game too.

Additional notes:

This is not the first time the Obama-Saudi connection has surfaced, and not from Wall Street Insider, either.  In 2010 this came up and more recently a whole host of incidents outlined here. (Don’t let the name of the site scare you.  There’s a lot of good links)

“People need to study the long history of the earth.”  Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace.  People need to study history period.

Making Christ The CENTER Of Christmas, Not Just Keeping Him In It

In the midst of the squak swirling over Phil Robertson’s stated beliefs on Natural Law and his preferences when it comes to mating (read the whole quote.  The man sees that God and Mother Nature know best and is willing to say so), more disturbing is a study from the Pew Research Forum was released this week which states:

Nine-in-ten Americans say they celebrate Christmas, and three-quarters say they believe in the virgin birth of Jesus. But only about half see Christmas mostly as a religious holiday, while one-third view it as more of a cultural holiday. Virtually all Christians (96%) celebrate Christmas, and two-thirds see it as a religious holiday.

…And while about seven-in-ten Americans say they typically attended Christmas Eve or Christmas Day religious services when they were children, 54% say they plan to attend Christmas services this year.

White House Front Group Vows to Target Alternative Media

Media Matters set to intensify attacks against Drudge, Infowars in concert with Obama advisors
December 13, 2013 by Paul Joseph Watson


White House front group Media Matters has vowed to target “alternative online outlets” as part of its new “strategic plan” to exert media influence in coordination with the Obama administration.

Claiming that its war with Fox News is over and that “to a large extent, we won” (despite polls showing Americans trust Fox News over any other mainstream network), Media Matters has finalized a blueprint which outlines a shift to focus on “new, increasingly influential targets, including Spanish-language media, social media streams, alternative online outlets and morning and entertainment sources.”

In other words, Media Matters, whose employees brag about writing MSNBC’s prime time content and attending strategy calls with Obama advisors on a weekly basis, will now turn its big guns on the likes of Infowars, Alex Jones and…

Playing With The Left And Article V

Originally posted on The Conservative Citizen:

ConstitutionalConvention1787

Ready for a reprise?

The progressive left seems to be getting nervous about what somebody out there perceives as a threat to “our democracy.”  From Daily Kos

That’s why I’m writing today about a growing movement in far-right circles that sounds like a bunch of crackpots, but could actually pose a serious danger to our democracy.  Spurred on byMark Levin and others, there is a grass-roots conservative movement to convene an Article V convention of the States to amend the Constitution by enacting so-called “Liberty Amendments” that would eliminate the popular election of Senators, require a balanced federal budget, prohibit the federal government from any activity conducted by the states (including healthcare), effectively eliminate the commerce clause and the general welfare clause, enact term limits on judges and enable the States to overturn judicial decisions, impose nation-wide voter id laws, and enshrine several other far-right hobbyhorses as Constitutional imperatives…

And Just Why ARE American Worker Bees So Angry?

rat-raceIn the traditional run up to Thanksgiving, a couple articles appeared in well-known media outlets about Americans becoming more and more angry and disillusioned with the United States and why this is so.

The standard answer is economic: the economy is bad and getting worse, the Obama Administration has made a mess out of the healthcare industry, we’re working longer hours for less return, there is a feeling of helplessness among the people at this point, and, of course, there is the outright intemperate covetousness of Black Friday and all that entails that’s really present all the time at this point in American history, just magnified with the confected aura of the kick-off to the secular Christmas season.

People are now skipping Thanksgiving to camp out for bargains and deals and World Series tickets aren’t even in the offing???  WTF.

In short, the culture is out of whack.

Why this is is not something easy to pinpoint, and sociologists and anthropologists are far too interested in the sex lives of starving pygmies in New Guinea to pay much attention and analyse it, but why we are so angry might well be frustration bubbling to the surface as life gets increasingly fast with expectations high and very little downtime to think, digest, rest and recharge.

Think about it, the average American worker gets up EARLY, in some latitudes during the winter months, in the dark.  We do a morning routine half asleep: make coffee, let out or walk the dog, shower (bath would take too long), grab some quick food for the road, and head out to work.  By this time, there would be anywhere from 1-3 hours of traffic reports: where the accidents are, how long the back-ups are, where the stalled cars are, driver illness, water main breaks, what areas to avoid.  As a result, we Americans spend on average 25 minutes just getting to work – and that’s IF there’s no accidents or other surprises along the way.  And depending on the month and where one lives, this may well be done in the dark.

For those who are able to use public transportation as an alternative, additional time must be built in to make all connections and be sure to have fare.  One carries all necessary items.  For these people, eReaders, iPods, etc., are recommended lest one turn into a commuter zombie.

We get to “work,” hermetically sealed buildings with forced air for ventilation and windows that don’t open to at least keep the workforce from getting disoriented, where we spend the next eight hours or more sitting at a desk staring at a computer screen and/or subjected to people we may not like or have any regard for  - and we can’t get away from them.  (There is a special place in hell for the inventor of the cubicle farm.)

Human resources may try to mediate arguments, but when the core issues of personality conflict and grating voices are not changeable, all one wants to do is escape.

We might get to leave the building for lunch, but the reality is, the seasons change and unless a worker is of the manual labor/outdoor work variety, we don’t get to see and savor it, because when the day is done, we get back in the car, flip on the traffic report, plot our journeys home to the place that is technically owned by us, but regulated by some housing authority somewhere, to unwind, eat a meal that takes minimal time to prepare because we are starving and are worn out from resisting the urge to punch someone all day, park ourselves on the couch and turn on one of the 800+ channels available on whatever cable package we have and zone out for a few hours before crashing for the night.  Repeat Monday – Friday.

There are variations on this theme: most people have to get kids out the door to school and daycare, not everyone has pets, some people head to the gym in their pajamas in the early morning hours, and on the other side, there’s supervising homework, Bunko night, choir rehearsal, a load or two of laundry…everyone has their own thing.

The cycle is dehumanizing and exhausting – and overall, it treats people like commodities.  If you can’t keep up in the way the overlords think you should, a review is in order, and one either conforms more completely or is spit out by the system.

Of course, that’s not all there is to it, but it is the overarching American work paradigm – be perky and easy to get along with at all times, no mistakes allowed and it must be done yesterday.

Hey, no pressure there.

Why are we Americans so “angry”?  Because we are expected to be something we aren’t.  Perfect.

“Arbeit macht frei”

Those words, now so familiar, greeted the thousands of people deboarding trains at Auschwitz during the Nazi reign.  Loosely translated: Work makes you free.  In the United States, the paradigm is work will allow you to live a better life, with more stuff, more options for vacations, allow a family to live in a better school district, be able to spend more money on the finer things, and be able to hire help when needed, although many people opt to do it themselves anyway.

Nowhere in that message is the reality that work as we know it in this country will steal souls, preventing innate creative skills from being developed and separating us from the natural world (simply because there is no other way to make people dependent, but that’s not the point of this piece).

Nowhere does it say that watching a sunrise or sunset becomes a luxury, or that taking frequent quiet down time to remain sane is a detriment to career.

Nowhere does that message say that we will spend our “free” time doing tasks that didn’t get done during the week because we were commuting, sitting at a desk, unwinding and otherwise running around.

Nowhere stated is the reality that we spend holiday mornings feverishly cleaning the house because we are having company in the afternoon and housework is the one thing that slides in our busy lives because it can be put off.  (And then we cringe when we spot the cobweb in the fireplace that we missed.)

Nowhere does it lay out the expenses involved with being part of the rat race: cars, gas, at least a week’s worth of office clothes for every season, dry cleaning, hair products, and antibiotics so as not to miss a day’s work when we get sick.

Nowhere does this paradigm expose how pressures are created that push families apart that include unrealistic expectations, exacerbated materialism, all parties stressed out and irritable, and general nastiness.

And this is the America where the solid work ethic of so many is exploited for someone else’s gain.  If we’re good boys and girls, they let us keep some of the cash before putting us out to pasture.

Hey, did I sound like a liberal just then?

This is where we are as a culture when members skip out on the one holiday that is uniquely American – the day we stop to give thanks for all that we have – to wait in line for cheap stuff that we generally don’t need and are willing to punch someone else to get.

This is what happens when the prize we eye is earthly and material rather than from God.

This is what happens when humans are encouraged to think only of themselves and not other people.

This is what happens when we are separated not simply from other people by the paradigm of leaving home so early, and doing our own thing, but nature as there is very little living off the land.  We also are not interested in understanding how we fit into creation or using nature to an advantage.  (Saving the trees and baby whales doesn’t count.)

Why are Americans so angry?  We may not know at this point, but the answer has to lie somewhere in what our culture has become.  In a crisis, all of the above goes away, but aside from one week in September of 2001, we generally haven’t been forced to live under crisis conditions as a country and that has made us very self-absorbed as we try to win in a rat race that has been rigged to turn us into hamsters on a wheel.

Why are we angry?  Maybe because in the 24/7 world where we live, creativity, negotiation, idea digestion and true understanding has been stifled by the immediacy of email, conference calls, next-day mail service and all the conveniences which have made the rat race faster, and human stressors more prevalent, all while asking us to conform not just to rules and regulations, but personality types.

Why are we angry?  Any or all of the above.

In the United States, we work hard, and play harder.  We follow a dictated paradigm of “must have a job” and “buy this to make your life better or easier”.  We’ve followed “the rules” and still see people at the top who have no business being there who make our lives miserable by asking us to be what we are not.  We’re encouraged to be our own selves – but only in our free time, and then there isn’t all that much of it.

It’s enough to make people scream.

Maybe that’s why we’re angry.

Either that or we all need a good, two week vacation…although the company policy may well be that we can’t blow all our vacation time at once.
