Double Standard of the Week (NSFW-Mentions US Constitution)

When I was undergrad at PSU, we had a university funded celebration of sexual exploration called "Cuntfest".  The stated goal was "empowerment", or something.

That's fine I guess.  Screaming "cunt" in the crowded room will get you the attention your parents never gave you.  It's so edgy and challenging that it will be accepted on a left leaning campus.  Why, parents should be proud their children are taking a stand for a culturally unpopular issue such as womyn's empowerment.

Freedom of speech you misogynist pig, and so forth.

Fast-forward to last week.

Students are banned on campus from passing out copies of the Constitution of the United.  On Constitution Day.

Now, it is understood that the students involved in such a nefarious act did not have a proper permit.  However, I just get the feeling that if students on campus wanted to have a Cuntfest of their own without a permit, it would be embraced.

Or maybe I'm just being paranoid that some need permits and others do not.  Naaaaaahhhhhhhh.

Reason #92760002 this Man is Unfit for Presidency

Priorities.  Or rather, lack thereof:

"Barack Obama has never been accused of possessing the most refined sense of appropriate, especially when it comes to what normal people regard as tragedies
Fifty-three weeks ago when four Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Obama appeared after a good night's sleep, bemoaned the loss, vowed to deliver justice to the killers (still unfulfilled), then flew off for fundraising parties in Las Vegas. Hey, they're still dead anyway, and there was big campaign money waiting.
When a 133-foot-tall wall of tsunami water rolled 10 miles inland to kill 16,000 in Japan two years ago, Obama expressed his sorrow, then went golfing. When bad weather canceled his trip to the funeral of Poland's president, Obama paid his respects by golfing.
As the Gulf coast economy struggled back from the nation's worst environmental disaster ever, Obama urged all Americans to vacation there. Then, he took his family to the New England coast.
Or our personal fave, his 2012 Virginia campaign speech when the audience began fainting from the heat. So, instead of cutting it short, Obama offered advice on hydration and how to stand properly while he finished reading his prepared text.
So, it should not be surprising that as heavily-armed SWAT teams combed the Washington Navy Yard Monday for at least one deranged killer, Obama took the occasion to proceed with one of his harshest partisan speeches in months."

To put it another way, here is a short list of our President's priorities:

1a) Hearing himself speak.
1b) Demagoguing opposition.
1c) Golf.
1d) Vegas.
1e) Vacations.

Remember: if you are in trouble, pray the President doesn't have any of the above scheduled.

But then again, in noting his actions when he is on the clock, would you want his bumbling assistance?

Your Weekly Assault on the Constitution

Your weekly assault on the constitution is brought to you by the United States Senate, under the supreme eye of Eric Holder (aka "Miserable Hack").  Just lie back and think of Obama, proles:

"The vote was 13-5 for a compromise defining a "covered journalist" as an employee, independent contractor or agent of an entity that disseminates news or information. The individual would have been employed for one year within the last 20 or three months within the last five years."

Thirteen pigs voted for the death of freelance journalism.  "Freedom of press" always meant freedom of the printing press, and not how our current elites define it.  

Here's my problem with this: you start making rules like this and pretty soon a judge will declare a blogger not protected by the First Amendment.  I'm not too sure this already hasn't happened, but no examples jump to my pre-caffeinated mind.

And if you don't believe me, look at the evolution of the NSA post 9/11.  Look at the serial abuses of the Executive branch against whistle-blowers, the Espionage Act, etc.

How can't the Stewarts and Colberts not look at this and explode?  They aren't technically journalists-they parody.  What about left leaning sites like Gawker? What if they make the wrong joke about the person in power?

Last thought: all this is the entrenched politicians covering their own asses.  If a freelancer, say James O'Keefe, were to publish a report of their misdeeds they could effectively censor him.

Onto more important things: GAMBLING

GAMBLOOR IS A RAPACIOUS BLOOD GOD WHOSE THIRST CANNOT BE QUENCHED.  Also, it's football season.  Your weekend picks (in bold):

Carolina (-2) at Buffalo: Carolina's front 7 is pimp.  Spiller will do nothing, forcing Buffalo to pass.  Cam Newton unleashes the dragon.

San Diego (+7.5) at Philly: I remain unconvinced that Philly can keep it's rugby offense going without killing the lineman and Vick.  Philly just can't be that big of a favorite right now; I'd take them at -5.

New Orleans (-3.5) at Tampa Bay: Based on nothing more than my mancrush on Brees and Sproles. 

Music for the weekend will be be brought by Run DMC:

I love that this song in it's own way is a tribute to the Monkees, who covered the original from the Paul Butterfield Blues band.  

Enjoy your weekends.
