12 Reasons Your Man Doesn't Respect You (or Your Body)

Feb 25, 2013 9:31 AM PT

Actually, it's pretty simple:  He finds a year's worth of Cosmopolitan in your house. 

Ever since I read the book Spin Sisters by Myrna Blyth I've looked at women's magazines in a new light.  We all know they're written by liberal New York women, but seeing all the examples given by Blyth (a former magazine editor) was astonishing.  In addition to the silly sex tips and scare tactics like the health risk in your purse (it turned out to be the actual weight of the purse), there are articles that could actually harm women, such as the recent anti-gun response in Parent magazine.

Serious You Guys

I'm totes not sick of Seth McFarlane after tonight, Ted, and the last six grueling seasons of Family Guy.

I mean, you can just keep cashing the Stewie Voice check forever, it seems to me.

It's Serfdom, Not Slavery

Feb 23, 2013 7:08 PM PT

It kills me when I hear the black communtiy refered to as a plantation.  It gives liberals an excuse to reject your argument as 'far right' and the black community to feel insulted, fairly or not.

My main problem with calling the black community a plantation is it implies they work.  The purpose of today's "masta" is to create dependency.  They don't want producers.  It's a false analogy.

S.S.S.A. Indoctrination

Feb 23, 2013 6:50 PM PT

I can sum up American history, at least the version I was taught, in four words: slavery, socialism, segregation, and assasination.

Slavery: You are black and you were a slave.  The white man beat, raped, and tore apart the very fabric of black families.  You were considered 3/5ths of a man.

Cyber Beat: Daily Roundup of Social Media and Tech Stories

Feb 22, 2013 4:25 PM PT

In addition to covering the institutional left and whatever protests and crazy antics they may be up to, my regular news beat consists largely of topics related to social media, hacking, hoaxes, leaks and technology related "stuff." (Not surprisingly, there is often some cross-over with those topics and the institutional left).

I find myself plucking out the best stories of the day - the fruits of my special news feeds, derived from my pre-configured custom searches - and tweeting those out to my followers on social media. Sometimes the stories are serious, sometimes they're about crimes, sometimes they're bizarre, but mainly they're just interesting for one reason or another.

Gi-Normous Goldfish On The Loose In Lake Tahoe

Feb 22, 2013 12:32 PM PT

Forget about flushing these goldfish down the toilet. Reuters is reporting giant goldfish weighing as much as four pounds and "measuring up to 1-1/2 feet in length" are finding their way to Lake Tahoe:

"These fish are competing with the native fish, and that's a big part of the problem," said Heather Segale, spokeswoman for the Tahoe Environmental Research Center at the University of California at Davis.

A group of researchers from Davis, the University of Nevada at Reno, and the fish and wildlife departments of both California and Nevada were the first to study the presence of goldfish in Lake Tahoe, beginning an annual survey in 2006.

In 2011, the group began a project to reduce the number of goldfish and other non-native fish from the lake through "electrofishing," dangling metal wires from the bottom of a boat to stun fish with electrical current, then capturing the fish as they float to the surface.
