You Don't Need a Weatherman To Know Which Way the Wind is Blowing

But it sure helps if you have an animated map showing the prevailing wind direction and speed across the US as of 9pm EST tonight.

And it sure is windy in southern Nevada and Colorado - I wonder what that says about Utah? Hot smile

Tomasky: Dietary Freedom Is Slavery

Michael Tomasky of The Daily Beast, Newsweek's ugly sister, does not like fat people. He also did not like his father's 1974 Chrysler Imperial with a 7.2 liter engine. Abraham Lincoln also did not like his father's drunkenness and became a prohibitionist. On Sunday, Michael Tomasky took on what people eat. Apparently people eat too much for his taste. And he wants them to stop eating more than he thinks they should.

And the fact that people are allowed to eat as much movie popcorn as they want in this country drives him to anger and despair:

But the nut of the column is this, "Eating anything you want isn't a definition of freedom. It's just indulgence. And it says something depressing about our country that it is permitted to masquerade as the former."

Michael Tomasky had the temerity to write, "I do want us to understand how wrong and simple-minded our definition of freedom is today."

I've long argued with European friends that the freedom to be as 'stupid' as you wanna be is what real freedom actually is.

The Mural TOO SHOCKING To Show

A mural at a US high school in RI was deemed so offensive that school officials had it painted over. Blog propriety prevents me from showing it here but if you have the stomach you can view the horror here. (NSFS)

Does Your Vajayjay Need Rejuvenization?

"She must have a fat pussy," one of my guy friends said in between eating some french fries. It caught me a little off guard.  We were in the middle of a heated discussion about the Trayvon Martin case. I watched her pass and tried to let the statement go, but it bugged me. Eventually, I got the balls to just ask about his random and vulgar observation.

"What the hell is a fat vagina?" I said.

I was immediately barraged by a litany of vaginal anatomical descriptions and even a top 10 list of "celebrity bests" (Nicki Minaj got the number one spot). Supposedly, this "pussy fatness" specifically refers to the size of a woman's outer labia. I hadn't even known anyone thought so hard about women's vaginas, other than gynecologists. I had no idea that guys even considered vaginal appearance when rating a woman's beauty. After the discussion, I felt a little insecure. I wondered about my own vagina - was she "fat" or attractive enough?

Well puffy pussies do upset the Patriarchy.
