Toddlers’ ‘Twinkle sign’ ban

TODDLERS have been banned from making a sign while singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star — because it could be offensive to the deaf.

The gesture, which children use when singing "like a diamond in the sky", is similar to "vagina" in sign language.

Parents at the Sure Start mother and toddler group in Acomb, North Yorks, slammed the move.

One said: "These are innocent children. Now every parent may worry their child is making an offensive gesture."

But a spokeswoman for City of York Council — which is responsible for the group — insisted it was "a sensible decision to stop deaf children or parents being offended".

Is it Just Me or....

I'm offended that some asswipe decided that a child's sign for star was used for the sign of a pussy! I bet someone putting up their thumb to hitch hike is really graphic in the world of the deaf. A "thumbs up" would get you slapped.

These PC do-gooders need a good ass kicking. Thankfully I'm not deaf so I could here the little pansies whimper in pain!

Man Sees 'Mark of the Beast'; Cuts Off, Microwaves Hand

HAYDEN, Idaho — A man who believed he bore the "mark of the beast" used a circular saw to cut off one hand, then he cooked it in the microwave and called 911, authorities said.

The man, in his mid-20s, was calm when Kootenai County sheriff's deputies arrived Saturday in this northern Idaho town. He was in protective custody in the mental health unit of Kootenai Medical Center.

"It had been somewhat cooked by the time the deputy arrived," sheriff's Capt. Ben Wolfinger said. "He put a tourniquet on his arm before, so he didn't bleed to death. That kind of mental illness is just sad."

It was not immediately clear whether the man has a history of mental illness. Hospital spokeswoman Lisa Johnson would not say whether an attempt was made to reattach the hand, citing patient confidentiality.

The Book of Revelation in the New Testament contains a passage in which an angel is quoted as saying: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink the wine of God's fury."

The book of Matthew also contains the passage: "And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for you whole body to do into hell."

Is it Just Me or....

Should this man be made an Archbishop or higher in the Christian army!!

Finally a person willing to actually live his life as God commands and follow the very explicit teachings from God in the bible. The world is full of Christians that preach the Bible yet have never opened it up to receive the lessons from their Lord. My hats off to this courageous and clear thinking man and his full understanding of the Bible's message and shame on the nonbelievers that are infringing on his right to follow his religions demands.

Attackers Sever Holy Man's 'Magic Leg' in India

HYDERABAD, India — Two men attacked an 80-year-old, self-proclaimed holy man in southern India and chopped off his right leg, apparently believing it had magical powers, police said Thursday.

Yanadi Kondaiah, who claimed that those who touched his leg would be cured of illness or have wishes granted, was hospitalized in serious condition after the attack Tuesday, said R. Ravindranath Reddy, a senior police officer.

"This seems to be a case of superstition. The two people might have taken away the leg hoping to benefit from its magical powers," said Pendakanti Dastgiri, the police officer handling the case.

Superstitions, belief in magic and the occult remain widespread in much of rural India.

Kondaiah told police that two men offered him a drink as thanks for previously helping them with his magical touch.

After he passed out drunk, the men chopped off the leg below the knee with a sickle and left him to die, said Dastgiri, adding that passing villagers found him and took him to a hospital.


Is it Just Me or....

Superstitions, belief in magic and the occult remain widespread in much of rural India.

Is believing some old guys scab covered leg has magical religious power no more wacky than the millions of superstitious Bible thumpers in America that have set up shrines around anything that some halfwit zealot has claimed resembles the image of Jesus or the Virgin Mary because they believe it has magical powers?

If some moron thinks the Virgin Mary is talking to the world through a salt stain on a freeway overpass the Christian superstitious load up the God Bus and the pilgrimage is on! The press treats it as a holy event and praises the mindless worshipers lining up to pray to the blessed stain o' the Lord.

The Jesus obsessed view any mass religious belief not kissing Jesus' ass as wierd and obviuosly a bunch of uneducated superstitious idiots and an occult belief yet the same reality challenged lemings will go weak in the knees at the mere mention of the Virgin Mary's image on a burnt piece of toast!

If the people raised in the occult o' Jesus flail on the ground drooling over a Jesus shaped grease stain on a hubcap the press wonders at the beauty of it all. If the same thing happens outside of the Christian bubble it is handled by the same American media as a bunch of stupid misguided third world peasants.

For people in India to believe a Holy man has magical powers is a clear case of the ignorant belief in magic, superstition and the occult, but you don't see any degrading language used when the articles are about Jesus magic!

Gas Price War Ends In Death

DETROIT -- A feud between rival gas stations owners over lowering gas prices ended with one owner fatally shot and the other in police custody Friday morning.

Police said the owner of the Marathon gas station at Fort and Springwells streets lowered the price of unleaded gas from $2.96 to $2.93. The owner and an employee of the BP gas station across the street began arguing with him over the lowered prices, according to police.

The owner came out with a gun and shot the other owner three or four times.


Is it Just Me or....

Hey, Here in Detroit...When we have a gas war we don't fuck around!!!!

The Catholic League called on the TV academy to denounce any award speeches not kissing Jesus ass

Kathy Griffin's Emmy Remarks About Jesus to Be Censored

LOS ANGELES — Before Kathy Griffin won a creative arts Emmy last weekend for her reality show, "My Life on the D-List," she joked that an award would move her to the C-list. She was right: "C" as in censored.

"Kathy Griffin's offensive remarks will not be part of the E! telecast on Saturday night," the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said in a statement Monday.

In her speech, Griffin said that "a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."

The comedian's remarks were condemned Monday by Catholic League President Bill Donohue, who called it a "vulgar, obscene and blasphemous in-your-face brand of hate speech."


Is it Just Me or....

Just a handful of generations ago such a statement would have earned you a slow torturous death over hot coals in this country at the hands of the same self-righteous Catholic do-gooders! Non believers were dismembered by the mass-grave full for not accepting their Catholic killers religion and God as a loving peaceful entity.

The courts no longer allow such sacrificial displays of love and devotion to the mythical man floating in space with a magic wand granting wishes. The loving followers are left with making threats and organizing to ruin any and all heretic's careers and personal lives to silence any free speech that questions their 4th century beliefs.

For anyone to doubt that Jesus hand picks who receives awards in Hollywood would be foolish. Over 20,000 children praying for food and drinkable water starve to death every day on this flat planet God created 6000 years ago while Jesus toils over who better deserves a TV award. That makes perfect sense to the believers and anyone that finds that odd must be silenced.

How can Jesus be blamed for allowing children to starve to death when much larger issues are constantly being brought before him? When little Josh's mommy prays to the lord to let the little kid's soccer team advance into the quarterfinals on the weekend what is Jesus to do? He has to pick and choose priorities. Since America's religious right has forced the US government to print "In God We Trust" on everything it produces that moves American kids to the front of the line. Little Josh's team wins and Hodgie covered in flies, dies crying for food in a ditch in central Asia.

Jesus is left with the tough dicisions like helping a gangster thug in south LA win an award for a rap song or help a toddler strapped in and forgotten in the back seat of a car on a hot day from baking to death while mommy is sitting in an airconditioned beauty parlor. Ours is not to ask why but to accept it as Gods way. Actions are louder than words. Amen...

Accept this religious logic as "God works in mysterious ways" or be silenced as hateful..... Because God loves everyone.

I sleep better at night knowing that Jesus is in Hollywood to make sure that Americans have the best damn award shows possible.

God Bless America!! Going After Fox Advertisers


NEW YORK (AP) - Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network., the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there.

Is it Just Me or....

where is the difference between the politicians of Communist China outlawing any free speech counter to the party line and the Democratic Party's controlling interest, attempting to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine to shut down the right wing radio talk shows and sabotaging the advertising revenues to force any media not parroting their party's line out of business in a blatant "our way or you are out of business" take over?


Any Political Party, being Communist or Democrat that feels the need to silence opposing voices do so out of desperation. Both know their position won't stand the light of day if compared to the dissenting voices.

This only confirms that the Dems know their positions are wrong on to many issues to attempt an honest debate of their core agenda.

This will serve as a wake up call for the millions of life long Democrats that found themselves on the fence between parties after 9-11 like myself.

The agenda of is to move on to a Socialist form of government and away from Capitalism. Thus the agenda of the owned Democratic party is coming after free speech no different than any other Socialist Party.

Transsexual trucker is 'hounded out' for wearing make-up


A transsexual is seeking thousands of pounds in damages after claiming he was forced out of his job as a truck driver when he started dressing as a woman.

Vikki-Marie Gaynor, 37, who was born a man, claims bosses started cancelling his shifts when he dropped his old name, Mike, and started wearing women's clothes, earrings and make-up to work.

'But almost as soon as I told them I was changing my name to Vikki-Marie and entering the transition stage of my gender reassignment things changed. I started getting hurtful comments...

Is it Just Me or....

Now here's a case where some wacko truck driver in the UK decided to start wearing women's clothing and make-up to work and was completely caught off guard by his being treated differently by other truckers...

So much so he is suing his employer for £20,000 (over $41,000) in damages because his life has been ruined!

So let me get this right...If I want to pay cash for a new car all I have to do is wear a dress to work and alienate my coworkers, cry foul and wait for my employer to fork over the cash...Sounds like a plan to me!

Get over it you silly faggot. Because you have psychological issues that cause you to not fit in with the norm of society that does not give you the right to hand out punishment to any and all that recognize that you have psycho issues and don't fit into society.

If truckers aren't comfy with an ass swishing, dress and earring flaunting man applying make-up in the truck stop's bathroom mirror that's your fault, not theirs.

Workers sue U.S. factory after immigration raid

By Jason Szep

BOSTON (Reuters) - Workers including 361 illegal immigrants were cheated of hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime pay at a factory at the center of a high-profile raid in Massachusetts, according to a lawsuit filed on Tuesday.

The class-action lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Boston on behalf of 500 workers, follows a raid by federal immigration agents on March 6 that drew criticism of the Bush administration's immigration policy and brought national attention to the perils facing undocumented workers.

Dozens of children were stranded when 361 workers at Michael Bianco Inc., which makes equipment and apparel for the U.S. military, were arrested by federal agents in New Bedford, a port city about 55 miles south of Boston.

Many of the immigrants were initially held at a decommissioned Army base in Massachusetts before being flown to Texas.

The case, separate to a lawsuit filed in March by the arrested immigrants against the U.S. government, accuses Michael Bianco Inc. of setting up a fictional company, Front Line Defense, to pay employees who had worked overtime.

It said the company channeled payroll through Front Line to avoid a federal law requiring workers be paid time and a half for overtime.

"In a lot of ways, what they did unfortunately is not out of the ordinary. The practices are very common in a wide range of workplaces, especially those that use predominantly immigrant workers," said Audrey Richardson, an attorney with Greater Boston Legal Services, which represents the workers.

Is it Just Me or....

Does Jason Szephead need a boot up his ass!

This story is about a company using a loophole to avoid paying overtime and has NOTHING to do with ILLEGAL ALIENS, CHILDREN, GEORGE BUSH, MEXICANS or TEXAS.

The lawsuit has no connection with the immigration agent's raid. Yet Szephead used the first four paragraphs of the article to bash Bush and the immigration enforcement that Szepo feels is to harsh on the poor "undocumented workers".

Hey Zepo, they are Illegal Aliens! Calling them "undocumented workers" is like calling a bank robber an "undocumented bank teller"...

Just another example of how lib journalists have learned that any non-story becomes news worthy by the left-wing media if it is liberally loaded up with enough Bush hating rhetoric. Even if the Bush bashing has absolutely no context to the story!

Guyana Woman Accused As Vampire Lynched

Apr 30 10:10 PM US/Eastern

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) - A crowd of Guyanese villagers lynched an elderly woman they accused of being an evil spirit who drinks the blood of human babies, police said Monday.

Authorities in the South American country said the woman raised suspicions with unusual behavior and was set upon by villagers who apparently believed she was an "Old Higue"—the equivalent of a vampire in the local Obeah religion that blends folk magic and African rituals.

The woman, was beaten to death. Police have arrested three people and are questioning others.

Some expressed surprise at the persistence of belief in Higues, a creature said to take the shape of an old woman who can shrink herself to enter victims' homes through a keyhole.

Is it Just Me or....

Is believing in a spirit that looks like an old lady and shrinks down small enought to fly through a keyhole is no less fanciful than believing in....

  • A giant old man living in the clouds watching over us
  • Invisible people with wings and magic wands flying around us everyday granting wishes.
  • A magical man who can part the sea with the wave of his hand.
  • Dying and flying up to a giant city in the clouds and living forever.
  • The sky is a large disc supported by pillars and suspended over the flat earth.
  • That eight people and two of every animal on earth plus all the food and supplies to last for 40 days at sea can fit on a home made boat.
  • A creature said to take the shape of a fat jolly old man dressed in red that can shrink himself to enter victim's homes through the chimney.
