Might as Well just Tattoo "Stupid" on your Forehead

Bryon Widner had tattooed brutish symbols including a blood-soaked razor, swastikas and the letters "HATE" on his face and body during his years in the white power movement. After he left the movement, he found he was shunned on job sites, in stores and restaurants, according to a story published in 2011 by The Associated Press.
Heh...gosh...what an asset to any company out there looking for someone  with convictions.  Or not.  Here's the deal.  If you come to me for a job (and yes...I hire quite a few people personally when I have to the time to get involved), I will turn you down flat if I see one visible tattoo on your body.

  Discriminatory?  Unfair?  Old Fashioned?   I don't care what you think about my hiring measures.  I don't want someone who permanently inked their skin working in my organization because those people showed atrociously bad judgement in their personal lives.  Why should their contributions commercially/professionally be any different?

But...but...but...everyone has a tattoo nowadays.  You're living in the past. rules.  It's worked out very well so far (much better than my competitors).

There is a Response for this Nonsense...

CONFLUENCE, Pa. - A well-known doctor with a permit to carry a concealed weapon has been charged with having a gun on school property when he picked up a child at a southwestern Pennsylvania high school about three hours after the school shootings last month in Newtown, Conn.
State police say they've charged 41-year-old chiropractor Charles King II because the state school code prohibits weapons on school property in most instances. Police waited nearly three weeks to file the charges because they're not sure whether the carry permit is an exception, though Somerset County District Attorney Lisa Lazzari-Strasiser doesn't believe it is.
Were this response would be rather eloquent.  I would request a meeting with the principal.  At that meeting, I would call the police and report the principal for violation of the "zero tolerance policy" due to the possession of a letter opener, which could be used as a knife.  I would insist on an arrest, then a search of the entire school to identify all teachers and staff in possession of a similar "instrument of harm."

Shoe...enjoy the other foot.

She gave the term hush money a whole new meaning.
For more than a half-century, Mary McConnell Bailey lived an incredibly quiet and unassuming life.
The shy widow, whose husband died in World War II, had no children, lived in a modest apartment on the East Side, and volunteered at a hospital and schools.
She died at age 88 as quietly as she lived. She never wanted an obit.
But she’ll now be remembered as a major philanthropist. She left a $20 million fortune nobody dreamed she had to her favorite New York institutions — the New York Public Library and Central Park.
In the words of the Occupiers...she didn't pay her fair share.  A patriot would have flaunted their wealth, and made sure that such capital was turned over to the New York Inheritance Tax as well as the Federal Estate Tax.  What a greedy woman.  She's what's wrong with this country?

That's sarcasm, if any of the Occupiers who are proficient in reading ended up muddling through the words.

Einstein Would have Loved This Show

I'm not one to watch television on a regular basis, but there is one show I truly enjoy...Ghost Hunters.  It's a SyFy offering that you can catch weekly.  As the title suggests, a group of paranormal investigators travel throughout the United States and Canada investigating locations thought to be haunted.  The shopping list is expected (shadow characters, apparitions, voices, footsteps, moving objects...etc.).  It's always approached by this crew as an effort to debunk the claims and then collect evidence on what they can't explain.  It's fun.

That's where Albert Einstein comes in with his Theory on Relativity.  Einstein was convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt in his later career that time doesn't exist in a linear fashion.  Instead, it was his conviction that the past, present and future all exist at the same time.  Do you see where I'm going with this?  It is all one single existence.

Since there exists in this four dimensional structure [space-time] no longer any sections which represent "now" objectively, the concepts of happening and becoming are indeed not completely suspended, but yet complicated. It appears therefore more natural to think of physical reality as a four dimensional existence, instead of, as hitherto, the evolution of a three dimensional existence.--Einstein (1952)

So, the footsteps heard above the paranormal investigator in a seemingly empty attic with no floors is, in fact, a "real time" sound of the past.  Only, it isn't really the past.  So if  past, present, and future all exist simultaneously, is it any wonder that the T.A.P.s guys hear things like this?

When you evaluate a significant number of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) collections, those subjects that seem to possess intelligence in their answers indicate that they do not believe they are dead.  Perhaps they aren't.  They're just confused as to how a voice seems to pop up out of the ether asking them questions in their bedroom. 

On a side note, this brings all kinds of fascinating questions to the forefront in reference to the mechanics of some serial killers out there.  Hearing voices in one's head takes on a whole new meaning.

This from the State that Voted Themselves Higher Taxes

A day of fun on a frozen California lake becomes pandemonium after one person falls through the ice, then another... and another.

Man of the Year...(Time Mag...)

Those of you surprised that Time Magazine picked Barack Obama as its Man of the Year only need count the number of times he appeared on their cover in 2008 alone.  Twenty-five (25) out of fifty-two (52) times.  Nearly half.  Barack Obama would have been their Man of the Year even if he had lost this most recent election.  They'd being paying tribute to the Divider-in-Chief while chastising the rest of us for our blatant "racism."

We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.
Translation:  Bringing Socialism and European malaise to the United States wrapped up in a healthy dose of finger pointing.

 In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.
Translation:  The President of the United States created an army of extended hands, palm up waiting for an entitlement.  Such damage was done to the economy via out-of-control spending that individual citizens turned away from personal responsibility and initiative and towards Big Government presents.  This translated into a focus on immediate gratification and a vast growth to dependency.  Responsible economics was beaten down by a sycophantic press as an enemy of the people.   The American people voted their personal wallets in the majority and tossed down a shot of "immediate gratification" as opposed to long term healing of the economy.

Return on Investment (Yemen) knuckledragging, mouthbreathing Conservatives are blowing this whole Benghazi thing out of proportion.  There's no reason to believe that this unfortunate "bump in the road" will even be remembered months from now.  Things happen, and then they go away...such is life.
SANAA, Yemen - Al-Qaida's branch in Yemen has offered to pay tens of thousands of dollars to anyone who kills the U.S. ambassador in Sanaa or an American soldier in the country.
An audio produced by the group's media arm, the al-Malahem Foundation, and posted on militant websites Saturday said it offered three kilograms of gold, worth $160,000, for killing the ambassador.
The group said it will pay 5 million Yemeni riyals ($23,000) to anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen.
It said the offer is valid for six months.
Our current Administration's message was received loud and clear.
