Title: Glorious Fail
Post by: Mac on December 01, 2011, 08:58:32 am
I noticed we on occasion talk about something failed, and I know there are sites out there dedicated to FAIL, well, because it's fun and sometimes allows us to feel better, it's not us failing.

Anyway, a recent discussion of Billy Squire and his ill conceived notion of a dance video forever cemented FAIL to a very successful artist. No doubt he continued on and did more great songs. He just made this minor hiccup in the rock world.

Please... add more as you see fit.

Jesse Eisenberg's a HUGE Star, Sues Over 'Camp Hell' Cover Art!

Quote
I'm willing to bet that when Jesse Eisenberg was cast in George VanBuskirk's Camp Hell (now on DVD from Lionsgate), he was beyond ecstatic. I'd even go as far as to say he called his parents and said, "Mom, Dad, guess what? I'm gonna be in another movie!"

But now he's a big star, you know, the guy from Zombieland and The Social Network. And being a big star, it's damaging to your reputation to be featured in a crappy direct-to-disc title. I understand it stings, especially now, but Jesse is the one who accepted money, signed a contract and agreed to take part in the indie production.

Yet, Eisenberg has decided to play the "douche card" and is suing both Lionsgate and Grindstone for featuring him on the cover even though he only cameos for about 5 minutes. So what? You can read all about the breaking news inside.

Via THR:

"Jesse Eisenberg has filed a lawsuit against Lionsgate and Grindstone Entertainment for allegedly turning his less-than-five-minute cameo in the horror flick Camp Hell into an above-the-title star turn. The actor is using the Los Angeles Superior Court to make a point. According to the complaint, "Eisenberg is bringing this lawsuit in order to warn his fans and the public that, contrary to the manner in which Defendants are advertising the film, Eisenberg is not the star of and does not appear in a prominent role in Camp Hell."

And oh yeah, he demands $3 million in damages, more than the budget of the film.

Eisenberg's lawsuit starts out with a prologue worthy of the horror genre: "No good deed goes unpunished."

According to the lawsuit, filed by Marty Singer, Eisenberg agreed to perform for one day at minimal compensation (about $3,000) as a favor to friends, who were producing and directing the low budget film.

That happened in 2007, before Eisenberg garnered an Academy Award nomination for his role in The Social Network as Mark Zuckerberg, a guy who builds a website that redefines publicity and privacy before getting sued by his best friend and some Winklevii.

Eisenberg's own friends allegedly couldn't resist the temptation of using the actor's newfound fame to advertise Camp Hell."

This could have gone anywhere, especially in Comedy Gold (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/stand-up-comedians/) since it's funny with regards to how to pronounce the word "Tebowing". But in the end, I feel that the "suspension" of the students was what brought this to Glorious Fail, even if I do think "Tebowing" is about the dumbest thing I've seen since Planking.

This is a fail, but I think it's incredibly awesome what Conductor Alan Gilbert did.

Man's marimba iPhone ring stops Mahler symphony dead

Quote
Concertgoers at the New York Philharmonic Tuesday night did not have to be musicologists to work out that the marimba was not part of the famous work.

Conductor Alan Gilbert halted the performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony when the offending iPhone ringtone sounded -- and persisted -- a media contact at the symphony confirmed.

Just minutes from the end of the hour and a half-long piece, Gilbert turned to the phone's owner, seated close to the front of Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, according to an eyewitness account published by "Superconductor" blogger Paul Pelkonen.

In the ensuing pause, some in the audience reportedly called for blood, shouting: "Kick him out!" and "$1,000 fine!" the witness recounted.

Gilbert quietly employed shame until the offender -- described as an elderly man by another blogger -- confirmed that the phone was off. Before continuing with the concert, Gilbert apologized and explained that normally it’s best to ignore such disturbances, but he said this was "so egregious that I could not allow it."

This was the first time Gilbert has stopped the orchestra for a violation of the "cell-phones off" rule, the symphony media contact said, but at least the second time that it has happened in the symphony’s history.

For classical music buffs who witnessed it, there was some satisfaction to be gained from the incident, which occurred in what is otherwise a quiet and mesmerizing part of the Mahler work.

"In a way, it’s great that that schlimazel’s iPhone happened to go off at such a sweet spot in Mahler’s Ninth on Tuesday. All of us… got to exercise some righteous indignation, schadenfreude, and the adrenaline rush of watching a fight," wrote a classical music blogger on "thousandfold echo."

The downside, said the writer, was that after "Mahlergate" there was just no turning back the clock.

"After this kerfuffle, it’s impossible to talk about the actual music, just as it was impossible for listeners to return to the symphony’s transcendent stillness after the cellphone," with news coverage focused on the man with the marimba, and "nary a pixel spent on what came before or after."

Thurmond Holds Senate Record for Filibustering (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,90552,00.html)

Even though Strom Thurmond set a record for longest Filibuster at 24 hours and 18 minutes, this is definitely up there with Glorious Fails in history because at the end of the day (pun intended), it did absolutely nothing to sway the votes. Although it's impressive what he accomplished on the Senate Floor, it pails in comparison to most of the chicks I've dated over the years. Now THEY could talk my ears off...along with my pants, for far longer than 24 hours.

Moviegoers demand money back because 'Artist' is silent

Quote
"The Artist" is earning acclaim, including three Golden Globes. But not everyone appreciates the black-and-white, almost entirely silent film.

British newspapers are reporting that some moviegoers there demanded refunds after starting to watch the film and discovering it's silent (a few lines are spoken near the end).

The U.K. paper The Telegraph said that theater staff had issued a "small number of refunds" to patrons who complained. The article also noted that patrons buying tickets to "The Artist" at one Liverpool theater were now being asked if they understood that the film was silent to stave off any future confusion.

A spokesman for the Odeon theater chain told the paper that "the cinema is happy to offer guests a refund on their film choice is they raise concern with a member of staff within 10 minutes of the film starting."

In a similar incident from October of 2011, a Michigan woman actually sued the studio that released Ryan Gosling's "Drive," claiming, among other things, that the trailer billed the dark drama as an action film along the lines of the "Fast & Furious" series. The suit actually called out the movie for having "very little driving."

The "Drive" and "Artist" incidents raise the question: Why do people who don't bother to research a movie before paying money to see it think their ignorance is the moviemaker's problem?

We can imagine the future lawsuits this trend could produce. "I thought 'Easy A' was a guide to rocks-for-jocks college classes!" "I believed 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' was a rock concert movie filmed from the front row!" "I expected 'Friends With Benefits' to be an instructional dating film!" Or even: "War Horse" had too much "War," not enough "Horse!"

Perhaps the movie title that applies here is "Dumb and Dumber."

It used to be that being a "pioneer" was a noble thing, now it's oppressive. It used to be that a "chief" was an honorable position, now it's racist. It used to be that a "cougar" was an animal, now it's slang. It used to be that an "entrepreneur" was something to aspire to be, now it's an oppressive boss. It used to be that "work" was a good thing, now it's not worth your time. How completely lame.

Sony hikes Whitney Houston album prices online (http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/13/10394035-sony-hikes-whitney-houston-album-prices-online?chromedomain=digitallife)

Wow, you have got to be kidding me!!!

Quote
It's easy to get so emotional about a singer after they've passed prematurely, as Whitney Houston did Saturday at the age of 48. But fans seeking to buy her albums in remembrance weren't too happy at sudden price hikes so soon after her death.

The Brits picked up on it quickly, with London-based Next Web writer Matt Brian and The Guardian's Josh Halliday both finding the price increases, which raised Houston's "The Ultimate Collection" 2007 album from £5 (about $7.89) to £8 (about $12.63). In the United States, the cost is even steeper: $15 for the "Greatest Hits" collection at both Amazon and iTunes. 

Halliday found out that Sony Music increased the price of "The Ultimate Collection" at about 4 a.m. Sunday, not even 12 hours after news broke of Houston's death. Fans were quick to point fingers at Apple for the anti-sale, but it turned out that when Sony bumped up the wholesale price of "The Ultimate Collection," iTunes and other retailers automatically upped their pricing.

We've reached out to Sony for comment and will update if/when we hear from them.

Digital Spy found consumers who said the price change happened even more quickly: 30 minutes for it to jump from $4.74 to $12.62, which prompted one buyer to fume, "The album itself is great so please don't be put off purchasing it, just [realize] that you will merely be lining some fatcat's pocket before Whitney's lifeless body is cold."

Houston's "iTunes Essentials" album is even more expensive at $18.45 for 15 songs (vs. 36 songs for $14.99 on the "Greatest Hits" album, which was originally released in 2000).

Over at Google Music, you can't find those albums, but there are a smattering of free singles, including "Greatest Love of All" and "So Emotional."

Meanwhile, at Walmart, things are just plain fishy. Though the retail giant has exited the music download business, it is still a massive CD retailer. While the pricing of Whitney's CDs hasn't changed, every single one is listed as 'out of stock online.' Could that really be because of a surge in buying? Or is there a price change afoot?

As of this morning, three of Houston's singles were in the top 10 singles chart at iTunes, including the No. 1 "I Will Always Love You," which was also sung in tribute by Jennifer Hudson at last night's Grammy awards. Houston's "Greatest Hits" album was No. 2 on the iTunes albums chart, runner-up to only Adele, who swept the Grammy awards with hits from her "21" album.

Sony apologizes for Whitney Houston album price hike

While I do not participate in Twitter or Facebook social services, I am finding this generation is changing things with the tools at hand. And I see this as a good thing. No longer can an corporation or individual hide. Joe Average is getting a voice. Sunday Morning recently had a good expose (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-3445_162-57376133/how-the-revolution-became-digitized/?tag=contentBody;cbsCarousel)

Quote
After negative backlash from fans outraged about Sony Music raising prices on Whitney Houston's digital albums within hours of her death Saturday, the music label has now apologized for what it says was a "mistake" on its part.

The New York Times reported on a statement issued by the label admitting to its error and by Sunday night, Sony had changed the prices back:

    “[The] Whitney Houston product was mistakenly mis-priced on the U.K. iTunes store on Sunday. When discovered, the mistake was immediately corrected. We apologize for any offense caused.”

It appears the alleged mistake was made by a Sony employee in Britain "and that the company gave no orders for prices to be raised on Ms. Houston’s music."

Brit blogs such as Digital Spy and The Next Web, as well as The Guardian, found that Sony Music increased the price of "The Ultimate Collection" and "The Greatest Hits" digital albums in the U.K. at about 4 a.m. Sunday, not even 12 hours after news broke of Houston's death. Fans and others assumed the increase was Apple's fault, but it turned out that when Sony bumped up the wholesale price of "The Ultimate Collection," it raised retail prices across the board.
Follow @msnbc_tech

The price for "The Ultimate Collection" went from about £5 (about $7.89) to £8 (about $12.63).

In the U.S., the pricing never changed. Houston's "Greatest Hits" album remains at a steep $15 at both Amazon's MP3 store and iTunes — a price we presume was the same prior to her death.

Despite the apology, much damage has already been done. For a few days, the outrage over Sony raising the prices of Whitney Houston's digital albums in the UK seemed to be on par with the outpouring of grief over her premature passing. Tweets sarcastically called the increases "classy," while others questioned whether it was really a mistake at all, vowing to boycott all Sony products.

The day after Houston died, Sony Music issued this statement about her:

    “Whitney Houston was an icon and a once-in-a-lifetime talent who inspired a generation of singers and brought joy to millions of fans around the world. She had a voice of unmatched beauty and power that changed music forever, and she leaves behind an indelible legacy of timeless songs that will never be forgotten. She also was an important member of the Sony Music family who spent her storied recording career with Arista Records. She will be greatly missed. Our deepest condolences go out to her daughter and her entire family.”
[/i]

Sony has made other flubs in consumer relations in the past year, with strained relations with its gamers after the spring 2011 hacking fiasco that leaked the personal information of 77 million players, and even prompted some shareholders to call for the resignation of Sony CEO Howard Stringer.[/size]

The more I read about this, the more I want to go to China and punch all these idiots out of their underpants: people paying one dollar a month to add a "sent from my iPhone" to every message they send.

The reason? They can't afford a real iPhone.

Here's the ad from one of the vendors who offers this service, as found by the Financial Times' Kathrin Hille:

   
Quote
The iPhone is too expensive. If you don't want to spend that money, then fake it!

People who use this fake iPhone signature service are users of QQ, the world's largest messaging tool, which is extremely popular in China.

Apparently, most people there can't spend the $791 for the basic iPhone, but they want to appear as they have one. Not only they are willing to pay that money, but they are also willing to give their QQ passwords in order to make these services to work.

This kind of moronic stuff goes on all the time in some form or another. Whether it's clothes, cars, tech, what have you. Your deserve to get slammed for wasting your money.

Ann Curry

That's it.... just Ann Curry is a fail. Why people think she is any good on the Today show is a mystery.

Today piece about the "'Too beautiful' Samantha Brick: 'I'm not overconfident (http://thelook.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/06/11053570-too-beautiful-samantha-brick-im-not-overconfident?lite)'" just made Curry unintelligent. It was obvious to me the second Samantha Brick started to talk, that she was a intelligent, bright woman with blog trying to make a point. Curry like many others misconstrued everything and did not listen to what Ms. Brick had to say.

Again, this is just one example. I find her appearance on a news show a head scratch-er.

Gawker reported almost two weeks ago that Matt wants Today to be a Curry-free zone and would only sign a new contract if the producers dropped her ass. Good Morning America has beat Today in the ratings for the first time in the history of forever and Matt is blaming the stale chemistry between him and Ann Curry for that. So since Matt has signed on, I'm guessing that Ann Curry will soon be saying "good morning, good morning, good morning, good morning" to the clerk at the unemployment office.

I liked Ann Curry before she took over for Meredith, but ever since then it's been painful to watch her. The worst is when Ann interviews a family that has just suffered a tragedy and she has to show with her face that she cares. I haven't seen that kind of blatant overacting since I watched a **** star wearing a dildo hat pretend like she was getting pleasure from another **** star humping it. I swear, a bowl of old curry has better interviewing skills than Ann Curry does.

Today should fire Ann, demote Matt to wine pourer and give Hoda & Kathie Lee all four hours. The ratings would plummet, but Joel McHale's heart would soar.

Was 2-gallon-a-day Coca-Cola habit behind death of 30-year-old woman?

I don't even have to read the article to say no duh. Again moderation people. Sad, but not surprised.

Quote
WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- Experts say a New Zealand woman's 2-gallon-a-day Coca-Cola habit probably contributed to her death, a conclusion that led the soft-drink giant to note that even water can be deadly in excessive amounts.

Natasha Harris, a 30-year-old, stay-at-home mother of eight from Invercargill, died of a heart attack in February 2010. Fairfax Media reported that a pathologist, Dr. Dan Mornin, testified at an inquest Thursday that she probably suffered from hypokalemia, or low potassium, which he thinks was caused by her excessive consumption of Coke and overall poor nutrition.

Quote
Meet Lisa Gail Allred, a North Texas woman who apparently has enough money to secure herself some studio time and the labor of a video production crew. The result is this country dance song called The Three Second Rule; while that refers to how long Miss Lisa Gail will let her husband look at another woman, it could also be a time limit for how much of this song you can stomach.

This video has been burning up the internet today. Lisa Gail actually removed it from YouTube, but the internet is forever. As are the scars obtained from making it through this entire video. 

YouTube seems to be the new home of so-bad-it's-good, doesn't it? As B movie put their tongues ever more firmly in their cheeks, we have to start looking to social media to find our ironic entertainment.

Not really glorious. In fact this sounds cold. But... Really, when you hear or read about a tragedy that involves a yacht, don't you really have little sympathy or give this no more thought time while reading it.

Collision suspected in yacht mishap that killed 3

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A yacht involved in a race off the coast of California and Mexico apparently collided at night with a much larger vessel, leaving three crew members dead and one missing, a sailing organization said early Sunday. It was the state's second ocean racing tragedy this month.

The 37-foot (11-meter) Aegean carrying a crew of four was reported missing Saturday during a 125-mile (200-kilometer) Newport, California, to Ensenada, Mexico, yacht race, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
The Newport Ocean Sailing Association, the race organizer, said the accident occurred late Friday or early Saturday several miles off the coast near the ocean border of the two countries.

"It appeared the damage was not inflicted by an explosion but by a collision with a ship much larger than the 37-foot vessel," association spokesman Rich Roberts said in a news release early Sunday.
Race officials believe there are few other possibilities for what caused the accident, Roberts later told The Associated Press, speaking by phone from Ensenada.

He said details were still scarce but it was possible that if the smaller boat was bobbing around in light wind, the crew might not have been able to get out of the way of a larger ship, perhaps a freighter.

Two teen girls hit by car while sunbathing in the road

Quote
Two teen girls were struck by a car after they dozed off while sunbathing on a rural road in Pennsylvania on Sunday afternoon, family members told NBC station WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh.

The girls, both 13, were taken by helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, where they were expected to recover.

Andrea Kunicky, a spokeswoman for the hospital, told msnbc.com on Monday that the girls were in good condition.

Police told WTAE-TV that Samantha Schermanhorn and Kaylie George were sunbathing on the road when a 19-year-old male cousin of Schermanhorn made a turn at a stop sign and hit the girls. The name of the driver has not been released.

Though he was questioned by police, it was unclear if he would be charged. Economy Borough police were investigating the case. The sergeant in charge of the investigation was not immediately available for comment to msnbc.com.

Nicole and Nicholas Beck, who identified their brother as the driver, told WTAE that it was “just an accident.”

I love this comment...

Dad straps 4 kids to car hood and drives away, police say

Time and time again, some people were never meant to be parents...

Quote
Last week, two Florida grandparents were accused of using their SUV to tow their granddaughter down the street in her toy car after they had a few drinks.

This week, a dad in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been arrested after allegedly strapping four young children to the hood of his car after a liquor store stop.

The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne reports that Aaron Stefanski told police: "I was only going to drive around the corner. I thought they would like it."

Stefanski, 29, was driving with his his 6-year-old daughter and 4-year-old and 5-year-old sons, along with Jessica Clark and her 7-year-old daughter, when they stopped at a liquor store on Monday afternoon, according to the Journal Gazette.

The store manager called 911 and reported that Stefanski used a tow strap to tie the children onto the hood of a large white vehicle and then took off down the street. A U.S. marshal heard the dispatch and stopped the car about three blocks from the store.

Could you be sued for texting with a driver? Experts say, 'maybe'

While this does get more complex than just texting in general, I fully understand this. Here at Boeing, they have made it very clear to stay clear of inappropriate material. For example, emailing jokes. And in particular the receiver of the jokes is just as liable and responsible as those who send. It is up to each individual to maintain ethical standards. In other words, its the receiver of the joke is responsible of telling the sender to knock it off.

In this case here, the only person responsible of picking up the phone to send or receive is yourself.

Quote
Could you be blamed for a car crash because you sent a text message?

A New Jersey judge will decide later this week if the sender of a text message might be partially liable for a horrific auto accident that occurred because the driver was reading that message on his cell phone and drifted into oncoming traffic.

With nearly half a million U.S. drivers injured in distracted driving-related accidents every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the judge’s decision could have wide-ranging impact in both the legal and digital realms.

While it might seem absurd to blame someone who isn't even in the car -- or anywhere near it -- for causing an accident, some legal experts say the plaintiff is on firmer ground than you might think.

After reading and watching the student and interview, I for the life of me cannot figure out what the suspension is about.

Beck: Facebook’s Failure May Be Part of Government Plan to Control Internet (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/beck-facebooks-failure-may-be-part-of-government-plan-to-control-internet/)

I heard from a 2nd news article about what Glenn Beck said with Facebook and the Government... cause guess what, Beck is a phucking attention getting shock jock and has zero credibility. He is entertainment. Period. Sucky entertainment.

Quote
Was Facebook systematically overvalued in order to force it into a government bailout?

That’s the hypothesis that Glenn Beck offered on GBTV tonight, and like many of Beck’s hypotheses, you might be surprised at the evidence that exists for it. In a nearly 20 minute segment, Beck meticulously and carefully picked his way through the past record of the company that handled the IPO for Facebook – Morgan Stanley – and pointed out that they don’t exactly have a record of success in helping companies go public.

“Morgan Stanley was the lead consultant on Fannie and Freddie bailouts,” Beck said in the segment. “They also set the IPO for General Motor. Whoa.”

The evidence from that point continued to mount, all to support Beck’s contention that the administration wanted Facebook to fail. Why? So that it could be brought into the orbit of the government as one of many formerly powerful companies that had to take money in exchange for loyalty. Beck suggested that the reason the government would want this is because control over Facebook via public money would enable them to have huge amounts of control over the internet, which they would then use to stifle dissent.

Believe it or not I'm torn. I mostly am on the side of no one tells me what to do, let alone the government. But I was thinking... I thought this way about cigarettes. I am so supportive of saying keep your stinking smoke away for me. How different is this from the soda ban. Basically someone telling everybody that you can't do something. You could argue cigs are bad... For everyone. So is soda.

Title: Re: Glorious Fail
Post by: Chiprocks1 on June 01, 2012, 03:45:50 pm
Well, as it was brought up in the debate and why I swing against the Soda Ban, even though I'm content with just one can, is that Soda doesn't affect anyone other than the person drinking it. I was and still am for smoking bans, I use to get into arguments when people would light up around me and I'd tell them to either move or put the cig out.

Now, if somebody were to sit down next to me and start drinking a 32 oz Soda, I wouldn't even care because it wouldn't directly affect me. I just don't like the idea of a government that already is getting into people's business telling me what I can and can't eat (or drink). This could easily snowball into more excuses for the Government to get further into our own lives and I don't like it.

Having said all that, this ban isn't what it appears to be. It's being disguised as a health issue when in fact it's all about money. They want to get people to pay more for what they were already drinking in the 32 oz. cups by making them have to buy two 16 oz drinks.

If the hospitals are going to start to fill up with fat asses and their problems associated with bad judgement on their health, thus medical problems, thus insurance goes up... I get pissed.

Jenny McCarthy's heartbreak

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ljl9RFpr5xI


This is kind of a tricky thing to have to deal with. Back when Jim and Jen broke up, immediately I said to myself, "what about the kid, should Carrey stick with him outside of the relationship for his benefit"? So here we are now and Jenny is airing all the dirty laundry. Um, because Jen is airing it out on Howard Sterns show, she gets a big, fat FAIL. To me this sounds like sour grapes on her part and she knows that giving Stern dirt like this that he will run with it and bash Carrey. So, my sympathies for her are nill. She absolutely knows she could have done this differently but chose to go down this road.

Also, Jim doesn't have the obligation to stick around in a "relationship" that has already ended. I really do feel bad for the kid, but I have to side with Jim on this. It's easy for people to sit on the sidelines and say "oh just suck it up and be there for the kid Jim" when we don't know what their relationship was like or how bad things got at the end.

This started off horribly with a big fat fail, but now Mrs. Klein is doing better. Actually she is a saint for keeping her cool and not prosecuting.

I can't imagine what the parents of these bullies think now. But then again, I attribute this all to how parents think and treat their kids as Special. Not my kid.

Quote
The New York school bus monitor who was bullied relentlessly and driven to tears by four middle school students is getting apologies from some of the boys.

The bullying was depicted in a 10-minute, profanity-laced video posted to Facebook by one of the boys Monday.


Now, after their cruel treatment of Karen Klein, 68, went viral, two of the boys and the father of a third implicated in the harassment have issued apologies to Klein via statements to police in Greece, N.Y.

“I am so sorry for the way I treated you,” one of the students named Josh said in statement. “When I saw the video I was disgusted and could not believe I did that. I will never treat anyone this way again.”

Jennifer Aniston movie role lures deadbeat dad home to face $43K bill, arrest

Quote
As they say, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Now, tack on this corollary: If you're a deadbeat parent who has skipped out on your child support payments and a random call suggests you're in line for a role in the next Jennifer Aniston movie -- well, you might want to think twice about flying home for your close-up.

That's what Joshua Garlathy discovered when he flew in May from Hawaii to Pennsylvania, where he owed over $43,000 in child support payments, according to Pennsylvania paper The Morning Call.

The 40-year-old had been absent from his child's life for 19 years, and as his support payment debt grew, he ultimately decided to live in Hawaii, where extradition was apparently too expensive for local law enforcement. That meant his ex-girlfriend Beth Ann Holderman and bounty hunter Scott Bernstein had to come up with a ruse to get him to return.

Fred Willard FIRED By PBS

Fred Willard offered course after arrest (http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2012/07/20/fred-willard-offered-diversion-course-after-arrest-for-lewd-conduct/)


My beef isn't with Willard choking the chicken. Honestly, who cares. I have issues with the executive that decides to pass judgement on someone else for something he or she has done (and most likely still does) themselves. Having said that, why Fred? You have internet and all the free  p o r n  you can shake a stick at. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/rimshot.gif) I understand that before the invention of internet that the only option were theaters or rental places and most people just don't want to have to go through all that trouble of renting. It's the only thing that I can think of as to why Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) would go down that road. But today? It's literally impossible to search the web and NOT find it. It finds you. I'm actually surprised that these theaters even still exist today BECAUSE fot the internet.

Anyway, I side with Fred on this. Oh, and  f u c k  PBS!

Walmart Sells Assault Weapons But Bans Music With Swear Words

Quote
Neil DeGrasse Tyson points out a bizarre dichotomy in America:

Walmart sells assault weapons but bans music that contains swear words.

That policy tells you a lot about this country.

We can guess why Walmart sells assault weapons: Its customers want them, and the company can make a lot of money selling them.

But Walmart's customers probably also want music that contains swear words, and Walmart could probably make money selling that, too.

And music with curse words is legal (First Amendment and all that), so this isn't about legality.

So why the no-cursing policy?

Based on a description on Walmart's web site, it seems that the retailer worries that some customers might find music with swear words "objectionable":

Wal-Mart does not display album or song titles that contain profanity...Wal-Mart selects 30-second sample clips such that only clips that do not contain profanity are made available to customers. However, other portions of the recordings may contain profanity, and the 30-second sample clips or the recording as a whole may be deemed by some customers to be offensive, indecent or objectionable. Occasionally, Wal-Mart may refuse to stock music merchandise that may not seem appropriate. However, Wal-Mart may carry some recordings that some customers might find offensive, indecent or objectionable.


So Walmart bans profanity on the grounds that some people might find it objectionable, but proudly sells assault weapons that can be used to slaughter people.

Isn't Walmart worried that some people might find that objectionable?  Like the parents of children who were just murdered with an assault weapon, for example? Or the parents who worry that their children might be murdered with an assault weapon? Or anyone worried that anyone might be murdered with an assault weapon?

Apparently not.

Apparently, in America, you'd have to be, well, un-American to find that objectionable.

Here's a nice-looking assault rifle Walmart's advertising right now on Walmart.com: The Sig-Sauer M400 With Prismatic Scope. It's "designed for use in law enforcement and military operations." Just what every civilian Walmart customer needs.

GOP congressman: Akin's **** comments were 'partly right'

A Georgia Republican congressman said that former Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, R, was "partly right" in asserting that victims of "legitimate ****" rarely become pregnant.

Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., a former obstetrician-gynecologist, said at a town hall meeting that Akin was “partly right” in his controversial suggestion, which was widely cited as a factor in his loss to Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, D, this past November.

Heart Attack Grill 'spokesman' dies after apparent heart attack

Uh, Duh?

(http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/130213-John-Alleman-hmed-430p.380;380;7;70;0.jpg)

Quote
A 54-year-old man who spent his days touting the greasy pleasures of the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas has died of an apparent heart attack, the restaurant’s owner said.

John Alleman was waiting for a bus outside the downtown grill last week when he collapsed, Jon Basso told NBC News. Alleman was hospitalized for several days, but died on Monday at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, a spokeswoman confirmed.

He’s the second unofficial spokesman for the unabashedly unhealthy restaurant to die in the past two years, according to press reports.

For the past 18 months, Alleman spent part of virtually every day at the grill, standing outside the doors, urging customers to come in and try the restaurant’s renowned “Coronary Dog” or a side of “Flatliner Fries.” The place is known for flagrantly fattening entrees, including the "Quadruple Bypass Burger" that weighs in at 9,983 calories.

“He did it for free,” Basso said. “He wouldn’t accept a dollar. He wouldn’t even accept a free burger.”

 Alleman was relatively slender, but had a family history of heart disease, Basso said. He apparently lost both of his parents in their early 50s. He is survived by a brother, Paul Alleman, who also lives in Las Vegas, records show.

He is the second unofficial spokesman for one of Basso’s restaurants to die, according to press reports. Blair River, who stood 6-foot-8 and weighed 575 pounds was known as the “Gentle Giant” at the Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Ariz., according to the Arizona Republic newspaper. He died in March 2011 from complications of flu-related pneumonia. He was 29.

 Alleman was known at the Las Vegas restaurant as “Patient John,” a nod to the grill’s hospital-themed gimmick where waitresses clad in skimpy costumes are called “nurses” and Basso refers to himself as the “head surgeon.” A caricature of Alleman is a staple on Heart Attack Grill menus, clothing and other merchandise. His real job was as a security guard at a local skyscraper, Basso said.

Basso seemed shaken by Alleman’s death in a telephone interview. He said he was with Alleman before he died and didn’t know quite what to do with a bag of Alleman’s clothing and personal belongings a hospital staffer told him to take home.

The grill will go on, said Basso, who was fielding media calls during a bartending shift on Tuesday. A former owner of a diet center, he said he grew tired of lying to people about weight-loss. The restaurant may have another spokesman, but, for now, Basso said he was missing his friend.

“Normally, I’m a lot more jovial,” he said. “I’m sorry.”

Personally I find these places disgusting. It was cute for 1 millisecond when a name is Fat Joe's or Fat Face Bar-B-Que. You will never catch me eating there. And don't even get me going about the eating contests or Man vs. Food. Disgusting.[/i]

I'm not surprised at this. I've always believed it was going on. I still cannot reconcile in my mind what these priests are thinking. I cannot connect the dots in their relationship with God. How does the Vatican? Is the whole religion a front and they don't believe in their own teachings and faith?

Documents show Milwaukee archdiocese shielded ped-ophile priests

Quote
Roman Catholic Church officials in Milwaukee vigorously shielded **** priests and protected church funds from lawsuits during a decades-long sex abuse scandal, according to hundreds of newly released documents.

The documents include letters and deposition testimony from Cardinal and Archbishop of New York Timothy Dolan who, during his time as archbishop of Milwaukee from 2002 to 2009, appealed to Vatican on numerous occasions to help address the ongoing fallout from the scandal.

The 6,000 pages of documents related to eight decades of abuse cases showed in great detail the Milwaukee archdiocese regularly reassigned priests who were accused of sexual molestation to new parishes and Dolan himself asking the Vatican permission to transfer $57 million to a trust fund to protect it against court action.

In 2011, the Milwaukee archdiocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, citing the financial drain of settling sexual-abuse claims and acknowledging missteps by the church in dealing with **** priests.

The judge overseeing the archdiocese's bankruptcy ordered the documents to be released.

The Roman Catholic Church has been hit with a series of abuse accusations and scandals during the past two decades, in the United States and elsewhere. The scandals have cost the U.S. church about $3 billion in settlements and driven prominent dioceses such as the one in Milwaukee, into bankruptcy.

One document is a letter that Dolan sent to the Vatican in June 2007 requesting permission to move $57 million into a cemetery trust fund in order to protect the funds from "any legal claim and liability." The Vatican approved the transfer a month later, according to the documents.

During a news conference on Monday, Jeff Anderson, an attorney representing more than 500 abuse victims, said the money was to be used to "pay off some of the offenders to quietly go away."

Dolan disagreed with the characterization of the fund in a statement released on Monday. He said it was a "perpetual care fund" from for cemeteries, not an attempt to shield money from bankruptcy.

Milwaukee is the eighth American diocese to declare bankruptcy, with the first three filed in 2004 in Portland, Oregon; Tucson, Arizona; and Spokane, Washington.

The documents also showed that when Dolan, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the nation's most prominent Roman Catholic official, asked the Vatican to remove priests, it was slow to respond.

In September 2003, Dolan informed the Vatican of abuse by Reverend John O'Brien, who sent a resignation letter to Pope John Paul II a month before, according to the documents.

In November 2003, when he had received no response, records show that Dolan followed up with more two accounts of abuse on the part of O'Brien, according to a document.

It was not until April 2009, that O'Brien was removed from the priesthood.

Documents also show the Milwaukee archdiocese transferring **** priests instead of removing them from the church.

In one such case, Reverend Raymond Adamsky received counseling and was transferred to 11 parishes in 34 years before being sent to serve as nursing home chaplain with restrictions on contact with minors, after he was accused of molestation in 1961 and then again in 1983, the documents show.

The documents also detail the Milwaukee archdiocese, on a regular basis, requested priests accused of abuse be laicized, a process in which they are stripped of their powers and duties.

As part of their laicization, priests such as O'Brien were paid $10,000 to start the process and $10,000 during the process and, in some cases, $1,250 per month for health and dental insurance, according to the documents.

Forget wedding planners: Proposal planners now for hire

Quote
There’s a whole industry around weddings: planners, decorators, florists, and photographers all work with brides and grooms in order to make the big day special. But what about before the wedding?

Enter the newest trend in the wedding world: Companies who can help you create special, one-of-a-kind marriage proposals.

Heather Vaughn is the founder of YES Girls, a company in Southern California that has organized more than 250 proposals. But she’s not the only one – there are now companies all over the country that work to create memorable proposals, including everything from renting private helicopters to spelling out a woman’s name in lights.

Tim Dorsett, an Air Force veteran, hired the YES Girls to help him pop the question to his girlfriend, Sonia.

“I think a girl or woman’s dream is first her prom date, her proposal, and then her marriage,” he said. “So those are the three things that are most important to them, and I wanted to make it special.”

The planners helped him pull it off with memorable touches like an eight-piece band and Sonia’s name written in lights. Luckily, after all that work, she loved the surprise and said yes.

Anja Winikka, site director of the wedding website TheKnot.com, says the game has changed when it comes to proposals.

“You used to have the classic bended knee proposal at dinner,” she said.

Now, Winikka points out, social media has increased pressure on men to come up with memorable proposals. It’s much more common these days for couples to capture the big moment in a YouTube video and share it online with their friends, only to watch it go viral.

Others share photos of the ring on Facebook, garnering tons of “likes” and comments from loved ones.

“We’re seeing how everyone else is getting elaborately proposed to, and we want it too,” Winikka adds.

The YES Girls are well aware of social media and often incorporate it into their planned proposals. The company’s Twitter and Instagram feeds feature lots of huge, sparkly rings and happy couples.

And the business is a lucrative one – although the basic proposal package costs $199, the average YES Girls proposal runs in the $2,500 range, once costs like venue rentals and permits are added in. Still, that’s nothing compared to the price of a wedding.

The only downside to a custom proposal?

As our own Gabe Gutierrez points out, think of the bar you’ve just set for your first anniversary!

Jesus book hits No. 1 in wake of viral Fox News interview

Quote
After facing a controversial line of questioning in a Fox News interview online, religious scholar Reza Aslan saw sales of his new book about Jesus shoot past works by mega-selling authors J.K. Rowling and George R.R. Martin to No. 1 on the Amazon best-seller list.

In an interview with religion reporter Lauren Green on FoxNews.com on July 26 about his book “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,” Aslan was repeatedly asked why he wrote a book about Christianity since he is a Muslim.

“It’s not that I’m some Muslim writing about Jesus,’’ Aslan answered when first asked. “I am an expert with a Ph.D. in the history of religions.”

Green continued asking versions of the same question throughout the 10-minute interview, with Aslan repeatedly providing similar answers such as “I am a historian,’’ and “I’m not sure what my faith has to do with my 20 years of study of the New Testament.” He also noted that his wife and mother are both Christians.

The interview went viral, and Aslan's book shot to the top of the Amazon.com best-seller list. Meanwhile, Green’s interview was criticized in The American Conservative magazine as “cringe-worthy,” “ignorant,” and “breathtakingly incurious.”

“For any writer or thinker to have inadvertently launched such a public discussion is about the best thing you can hope for,’’ Aslan said in an NBC News report that aired on TODAY Wednesday.

Green’s line of questioning also somewhat obscured some potentially controversial claims in Aslan’s book, which alleges that Jesus was not born in Bethlehem and was hardly God-like. “What little we know about him paints him as really an illiterate peasant from the backwoods of Galilee,’’ Aslan said in the NBC News report. “This man was able to gather people to him not because of his education but because of his charisma, because of the power of his message.”

During the interview with Green, Aslan referred to Jesus as a “troublemaker.”

“It’s the fact that he was such a troublemaker that I think makes him so compelling,’’ Aslan said in the segment that aired Wednesday.

Aslan also has drawn some criticism from a conservative commentator saying that his claim that he is a historian is inaccurate because none of his four degrees are in history. Aslan told NBC that three of his degrees are in religion, including his PhD, which qualifies him to write about religious history.

People Of All Ages Sign Petition For Mandatory Euthanasia For Senior Citizens Under Obamacare


Quote
Media analyst and author Mark Dice heads out to see if Californians will sign a petition for mandatory euthanasia program for seniors and terminally ill people in order to cut costs in Obamacare. Some of these people are the most calloused people I’ve ever seen. Dice asks random people if they’ll sign a petition for “mandatory” euthanasia provision in Obama Care to help keep healthcare costs down by putting senior citizens to sleep. There was a bright light in the midst of it as one man and apparently another woman actually realized what was being pushed. The rest of the people simply demonstrate the mind-numbed robots living in our society. This should be a wakeup call to all Americans, especially our seniors and those with terminally ill diseases.

Florida teen who died in custody after being Tasered leaves family with questions

Quote
A Miami Beach, Fla., teenager who died in police custody after he was Tasered has left his family grieving and his community asking if his death could have been prevented.

Israel Hernandez-Llach, 18, was spotted vandalizing private property in Miami Beach with graffiti by police officers on Tuesday morning at 5:14 a.m. local time, according to a statement from police. Hernandez ran from officers, who chased him on foot. When they caught up to him a block later, Hernandez allegedly ignored officers' commands to stop running, and an officer Tasered him and arrested him.

Once he was in custody, Hernandez-Llach "displayed signs of medical duress," according to the police statement. He was transported to Miami Beach's Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday, according to a police report.

The death of the Miami Beach Senior High student, known for his artistic achievements — including a congressional honor from Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for his art, according to sister Offir Hernandez-Llach, who spoke to NBC Miami — prompted his family to hire attorneys. The attorneys said they were calling for outside agencies to investigate the case.

"We don't know exactly what happened in this case, and we want to make sure we know with absolute certainty what did happen, and for that reason, we would like it to be an outside law enforcement agency," Jose Javier Rodriguez said earlier in the week, NBC Miami reported.

Miami Beach police would not comment to NBC News on the case beyond their statement, which says an investigation into the incident is open and ongoing. Autopsy and toxicolgy test results for the teen are also still pending. Hernandez-Llach did not have any other injuries, police said.

"The City of Miami Beach would like to extend their condolences to the family of Israel Hernandez," Police Chief Raymond A. Martinez said in the statement.

On Thursday evening, tensions escalated at a vigil in Miami Beach to honor Hernandez-Llach.

Supporters of Hernandez-Llach chanted "No justice, no peace!" in front of the abandoned storefront where Hernandez had spray-painted gold graffiti during the early dawn hours on Tuesday before police saw him, NBC Miami reported. Police were forced to move in to control the crowd, the station reported.

The demonstrators on Thursday echoed a sentiment expressed earlier in the week expressed by Hernandez's sister.

"We'll appreciate it very much if you can support [us], because art is nothing to be killed for," Offir Hernandez-Llach said.

Tooth Fairy taking bite out of parents' pocketbooks

Quote
As most Americans set about tightening their belts, the tooth fairy's magic shows no signs of waning.

Indeed, this fantasy figure's generosity is skyrocketing, according to a new survey, which revealed that some American children are pocketing up to $50 per tooth.

The amount left by the tooth fairy has shot up in recent years, and 2013 is no exception, research by Visa showed on Friday. Its annual tooth survey revealed that children found an average of $3.70 under their pillows in 2013 – a whopping 23 percent increase on 2012, when only $3.00 was left.

Based on this rate of return, a child would net an impressive $74 for a full set of 20 baby teeth.

But some youngsters are set to make even more, with 6 percent of American children receiving $20 or more from the tooth fairy – and 2 percent finding a crisp $50 bill tucked under their pillow.

The tradition, which has its origins in the 1800s, sees children place their lost baby teeth under their pillow for the "tooth fairy," who leaves some loose change in exchange for the tooth. But the days of finding a quarter are long gone, and somewhat surprisingly, only a third of those surveyed reported that the tooth fairy left a dollar per tooth.

The tooth fairy is most generous in the Northeast, according to the research, where children get an average of $4.10 per tooth. By contrast, Midwestern children found the least under their pillows, with an average of $3.30 per tooth.

Despite the recent economic downturn, the custom remains popular with the tooth fairy visiting 90 percent of households in the U.S. this year.

Cellphone use during flights? 'I'd rather have snakes on a plane'

Quote
You might not be able to escape a co-passenger that won't shutup now that the government is considering allowing passenger to make cellphone calls while flying.

Mere weeks after the FAA relaxed rules to allow the use of personal electronic devices during all phases of flight -- a running list of which airlines are allowing gate-to-gate use is here -- the FCC is getting in on the cellphone plane party and considering letting passengers talk and text across the whole country.

"...the time is right to review our outdated and restrictive rules," said FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.

The public reaction was swift and overwhelmingly negative. Some passengers said they would consider changing their airline loyalty if their go-to carrier decided to allow in-flight calls.

"100 percent. I'm a frequent flier on one particular airline but if they made that change I would consider making that change for sure," a passenger at Washington-Dulles told TODAY.

When the TODAY show asked, "Should the FCC allow cellphone calls on planes?" 96 percent of responding viewers using the hashtag #orangeroom said "NO."

Dennis Rodman - Huge Fail

I know of only his antics and nothing of his sports. Doesn't really matter though, does it. He will be remembered for his fails... that he continues to make daily

Dennis Rodman apologizes again for failing to help Kenneth Bae

Quote
BEIJING - Former basketball star Dennis Rodman apologized on Monday for not being able to help an American missionary detained in North Korea during his trip there.

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry I couldn't do anything," Rodman told media on his arrival at Beijing airport from a weeklong trip to play in a game to celebrate the birthday of his friend and leader Kim Jong Un. "It's not my fault. I'm sorry. I just want to do some good stuff, that's all I want to do."

and a very good comment...

Quote
He couldn't help Bae, but he could have not celebrated and honored the person imprisoning him.

    I'm just an individual that wants to show the world the fact that we can actually get along and be happy for one day."

You are an individual who has said that a murderous dictator who, among countless other atrocities, is holding an American with no cause is a "good guy" and your friend. You sang this dictator "happy birthday" and treated him as though he was worthy of praise and not scorn.

I can appreciate the desire to bring countries together through athletics, but there needs to be a strategic plan to how it is done. You let your ego tell you that you know better than don't the human rights experts and your own state department when you know nothing about it.

His efforts aren't bringing countries together-they are glorifying and strengthening the power of an evil, murderous dictator.

'Friday Night Tykes' reveals kids are getting recruited for football at age 3

Quote
Little boys and sports go together like ice cream and summer. But where does the fun end and the pressure to win begin? That's a topic the new Esquire docuseries "Friday Night Tykes" will explore as the project follows the rookie division of the Texas Youth Football Association through the 2013 season.

With football being the most popular sport in the United States, there's an increased focus on finding potential stars at a younger age. In a clip from "Friday Night Tykes" that Esquire is sharing exclusively with TODAY, one parent reveals that recruiters were already eyeing his son at a shockingly young age.

"We were at a birthday party and this coach walks up to me and shakes my hand and says, 'Is that your boy?' He takes out a full-color, double-sided business card and said, 'Hey, you need to call me,' " Kinton Armmer tells the cameras. "Jaden was 3 years old. I've heard of college recruits getting that kind of attention. But 3- and 4-year-old kids? I cannot believe it. But this is Texas, and you can't go anywhere without football."

Jaden, now 10 years old, started playing flag football with the NE Colts when he was 5, his parents told TODAY.

Me... Time to eat crow

Recently I had a misunderstanding with my Library system. In a nutshell, I made a request for the Movie Hell Baby. As typical, I get a response from the Library with a Yes or No on the purchase. Except this time it stated the item was 'unsuitable'. No other explanation, so this got my panties in a bunch and I wrote my thoughts to them on this subject.

I haven't made an ass of myself in quite a while. I use to do it all the time in my younger days. I'm rather disappointed in myself.

Read the brief interaction...

  We regret that we are unable to fill your request for the

Quote
Why Now?
Was this deemed unsuitable by an individual? A few library folks, or were there patrons condemning this movie? Was this determined unsuitable by someone who was offended in religious perspective? I hope not.That would be opening a can of worms.

What exactly is 'Unsuitable'. The Title? The Content? Did the individual(s) that made the judgment call,  see the film?
What is the Library systems process for making this ‘unsuitable’ decision? The reason I ask is because I’ve been rather proud of my library system. I boast all the time about how well it’s run, the product it carries is just about unlimited and it’s probably one of the best systems in the country.

Now suddenly, for the first time in my very long relationship with the library, it has designated something to be banned.
 
For me, the issue is not about Hell Baby movie. It’s about someone, the library system censoring. I’m just having a hard time wrapping my mind around the Library judging and pre-determining suitability of a product. Have you banned other things?
 
Believe me, the title and contents of Hell Baby is far more tame than some products (audio, video, books) already owned in the system. I’m not going to say what they are, because quite frankly the slippery slope of pulling (banning) those things already on shelves appears to be possibility.
 
Very disappointed in the Library

Library
Quote
Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding the recent cancellation of our order of Hell Baby. This occurred because our vendor was informed by the studio distributing this title on DVD was rated R. We put the title in the catalog as "on order" in good faith. When the DVD arrived it was the unrated version. We contacted our vendor, Baker & Taylor, to see if the rated version was available to purchase. Once they contacted the studio, they informed us it was not.

Though the library does purchase items that are not rated: foreign films, television broadcasts, independent films that may not be able to afford the rating process, I try to perform due diligence with reviews to see that we do not purchase something that crosses the line into NC-17 territory as that is against policy. Films like Hell Baby are difficult because if the unrated version is not released in theaters, many of the reviews do not refer to the unrated version and we are unable to determine what is in the unrated portion.

As for unsuitable, it refers to the format, not the content. We usually send this in response to items like the new book, S, by J.J. Abrams that has many bits and pieces that would be difficult for the library to circulate or the children's release "Little Nut Tree" that was both a book and a CD that would be difficult to shelve as it is a multi-media item.

The cancellation notice sent was poorly chosen. I apologize. We will still not be able to purchase Hell Baby at this time due to the unrated status of the DVD.

Sincerely,

Cindy Fehmel

Dear Ms. Fehmel,
Thank you for your quick and concise response. I really appreciate it.

This was apparently a situation more complex than 'unsuitable', which made me jump to inappropriate conclusions. Thus my emotional email. Yea, I would have shrugged off a "Cannot Purchase Response" reply. I engage the system a bit with lots of purchase suggestions and inter-library requests. On occasion I get the "Cannot fulfill..." and that's to be expected.

Your explanation makes sense and I have a better understanding of the inner workings of that process.
Thank you again for your patience and reply.

I honestly don't see anything wrong with what you wrote and personally I wouldn't even have entertained the idea of "apologizing" for it. It was a concise, well-thought out question as you were covering all the bases of what their excuse would be for cancelling it. As for the title in question, their response doesn't hold water and is a bit hypocritical to say the least. My library branch, including the 25 or so that it swaps and trades with has a ton of Unrated and NC-17 titles in the system. So, not really sure how once Branch and condemn it and another freely offers them to anyone.

Many "systems" have black and white rules. I get it. Something as big as a library system needs some parameters or it would be chaos.

At times, it makes sense for these "systems" to address some issues on an individual basis.

This isn't one of those times, IMO.

Buffett: I'd love to see minimum wage at $15 an hour


Warren Buffett said he would love to see the minimum wage double to $15 an hour. But he admits that wouldn't be a good idea.


Quote
Speaking on CNBC Monday morning, Buffett said a minimum wage hike could hurt jobs.

"If you could have a minimum wage of $15 and it didn't hurt anything else, I would love it," he said. "But clearly that isn't the case."

However, he added, he wouldn't argue with President Obama's proposal for a more modest increase, to $10.10 an hour from $7.25 an hour currently.

Buffett, the second richest man in the United States behind only Bill Gates, suggests a different way to help the working poor.

Upstate college to offer course on Miley Cyrus

Quote
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) -- A college in upstate New York is offering a summer course on Miley Cyrus, but the professor teaching the class says students won't be required to twerk. The Saratogian newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1rEU9Og ) that the course will be offered by Skidmore College, a private, liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs. Visiting Assistant Professor Carolyn Chernoff calls the course "The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media." Chernoff says she'll focus on the 21-year-old performer and all her incarnations as a way to study such topics as gender, race, class, fame and power. She says she got the idea after teaching a course on youth culture that featured video of Cyrus twerking at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. As for twerking in class, Chernoff says: "Sorry, dudes, but this is sociology. Learn to twerk on your own time."

Fox reality show to trick single women with 'Prince Harry' ruse

Quote
Fox's newest dating show is out to deceive contestants royally.

In "I Wanna Marry 'Harry,' " 12 single American women travel to Britain to meet a young man they are led to believe is -- yes, you guessed it -- Prince Harry, the rakish 29-year-old grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and fourth in line to the British throne.

Harry he is not, of course, but, rather, one Matthew Hicks, a lookalike who is not in line for anything except the starring role in a dating show that proves just how hard it is to embarrass TV programmers. (It's incredibly hard.)

PHOTOS: Faces to watch 2014 | TV

As the Fox release puts it: "Will he be able to convince them he's regal? And if he does, will they fall for the crown, or fall in love with the real him?"

Another question: After seeing this show, will viewers have any faith left in human nature?

Oh, well, that probably disappeared a long time ago for anyone who watches a lot of reality TV. Actually, "Harry" recalls the pre-"American Idol" Fox of more than a decade ago, when sensationalistic fare like "Joe Millionaire" and "Celebrity Boxing" ruled.

"I Wanna Marry 'Harry' " will premiere on May 27.

Joe the Plumber: "Your Dead Kids Don’t Trump My Constitutional Rights"

(http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--LRDEgM5---/c_fit,fl_progressive,q_80,w_636/g3yv3io7flmjeksinl1u.jpg)

Quote
Joe the Plumber is an idiot. But in his latest idiocy—a crass dance on the graves of the just-murdered mass-shooting victims in Isla Vista—he teaches us all an important lesson about exactly how conservative thought on individual rights has shifted in recent years.

Joe, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, inexplicably became famous as the moron who "stood up" to candidate Barack Obama in 2008, and he's since made some money as a failed Tea Party congressional candidate and talk-radio ranter. Continuing his tradition of providing answers to questions no one ****ing asked him, Joe decided to post an open letter to the families of victims killed in Elliot Rodger's murder-suicide rampage over the weekend. Just the victims who were shot, though; not the ones who were stabbed.

His message of hope and love: Stay the **** away from my guns.

    I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But:

    As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don't trump my Constitutional rights.

    Richard Martinez, whose son (Christopher) was among the murdered, choked back tears at a news conference, blaming politicians the next day: "The talk about gun rights. What about Chris' right to live?" Martinez said – and much more...

    But the words and images of Mr. Martinez blaming "the proliferation of guns", lobbyists, politicians, etc.; will be exploited by gun-grab extremists as are all tragedies involving gun violence and the mentally ill by the anti-Second Amendment Left...

    We still have the Right to Bear Arms and I intend to continue to speak out for that right, and against those who would restrict it – even in the face of this horrible incident by this sad and insane individual. I almost said "Obama Voter" but I'm waiting for it to be official...

There's something refreshingly honest in Joe's acknowledgement that this tragedy is all about him. It's the reductio ad absurdum of an ethos that's obsessed with the self and the self's freedom without a concomitant empathy for other selves and their freedoms. Joe's rant illuminates quite starkly how the right-libertarian absolutist interpretation of individual rights comes into direct conflict with the lives of his fellow countrymen and their children. To talk of responsibilities is to water down a right, and we cannot do that, no matter what the cost! (On the other hand: "They talk about gun rights," Martinez said in his stirring press statement about his son. "What about Chris's right to live?")

It's part of a larger move in conservatism away from appeals to the common good and toward an antipathy for anything but the self. Where conservatives used to justify the free market, for example, in Adam Smith's practical terms—the invisible hand provides for all, a rising tide floats every boat—they now rationalize it in Ayn Rand's fundamentalist terms: Who gives a **** if the market is good or just? It's right. Now get the **** out of our way, you illogical bromide-hawking self sacrificer.

Likewise for gun rights, where conservatives led by lobbyists and luddites like Joe the Plumber have abandoned talk about the good and replaced it with talk about the right. The good can be negotiated as hard cases arise. The right is non-negotiable. It is immutable. It is either respected or infringed. If you believe, as Joe and the NRA do, that the Second Amendment is an absolute right to personal firearms ownership—not merely that it's good for something, like self-defense or recreation, but that it's an immutable right—then even background checks or limits on multiple-magazine purchases or just simply talking about compromise and offering real sympathy to survivors is an infringement on that right.

In this ideology, talk of social responsibility in the exercise of rights becomes synonymous with socialism. This is the ultimate problem with the modern movement that clubbed traditional conservatism to death, squeezed into its clothes, and now traipses around like it owns the place.

Even if you believe that a discussion of social responsibilities is the same thing as socialism—and frankly, only an ignoramus could—you can't fight socialism by becoming a sociopath.

‘Let’s go out back and I’ll beat your ass’: Florida judge allegedly attacks lawyer outside courtroom

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOmzSmHwb3Y

Quote
Talk about the strong arm of the law!

A Florida judge allegedly punched a public defender after the two stepped outside the courtroom to settle a beef.

The brawl erupted after Judge John Murphy began to argue with the lawyer, Andrew Weinstock, in a Brevard County courtroom just outside of Orlando on Monday.

“You know, if I had a rock, I would throw it at you right now,” Murphy is heard telling the attorney in a video recording of the spat, which aired on WFTV.

“Stop p---ing me off. Just sit down.”

But Weinstock — who felt he was being pressured to talk his client into waiving his right to a speedy trial — barked back at the angry judge.

“You know I’m the public defender,” Weinstock said. “I have the right to be here and I have a right to stand and represent my client.”

That’s when Murphy asked the lawyer if he wanted to settle the matter with their fists.

“If you want to fight, let’s go out back and I’ll just beat your ass,” he told Weinstock.

The lawyer can be seen in the video apparently following Murphy out of the courtroom before the sounds of a scuffle can be heard off camera.

 “The attorney said that immediately upon entering the hallway, he was grabbed by the collar and began to be struck,” Blaise Trettis, public defender of the 18th Judicial Court, told WFTV.

“There was no discussion, no talk, not even time for anything. Just as soon as they’re in the hallway, the attorney was grabbed.”

Murphy punched Weinstock in the face before a pair of deputies broke up the fight. The lawyer was reassigned to another area to avoid another confrontation.

He later declined to press charges. But legal experts said the two men could still face disciplinary action.

One witness told WKMG-TV that the argument escalated because Weinstock acted "exteremely rude."

People inside the courtroom applauded the judge as he returned to the bench.

“I will catch my breath eventually,” Murphy told the courtroom. “Man, I’m an old man.”

 First the burglar failed to log out of Facebook after checking his profile on the homeowner's computer. Then he agreed to meet up with homeowner James Wood in an effort to get back wet clothes he'd left behind.

Crook caught by leaving facebook profile open
Wood tells WCCO-TV (http://j.mp/1pO1meq) the burglar has to be the "world's dumbest criminal."

South St. Paul police say the burglar took credit cards, cash and a watch last week.

Wood posted his phone number on the burglar's Facebook page, hoping someone would call.

The burglar himself texted Wood and agreed to meet with the homeowner, thinking he could negotiate for his clothes. When Wood spotted the burglar, he recognized him from Facebook and called police.

Hey, is this a first? Not only a fail, but a double fail. Todd Akin takes back his apology for 'Legitimate ****' (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/general-discussion/glorious-fail/msg15643/#msg15643).

Wow, nothing like reiterating you're an assclown.

Todd Akin takes back 'legitimate ****' apology

Quote
Turns out Todd Akin isn't sorry after all for his "legitimate ****" comments and stands by them.

The former congressman, who lost the 2012 Senate race in Missouri, has written a book that Politico previewed on Thursday.

"By asking the public at large for forgiveness," Akin writes in the book, "I was validating the willful misinterpretation of what I had said."

Akin, a conservative Republican locked in a tight race with Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, said in a TV interview in summer 2012 that he believes pregnancy can be prevented by a woman involved in "legitimate ****" because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

The firestorm was intense, with criticism coming from top Republicans as well as Democrats. GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney called Akin's comments "offensive and wrong" and called on him to quit the Senate race. Akin apologized, saying he made a "very, very serious error" and noted he wasn't the first politician to suffer from "foot in mouth disease."

But McCaskill capitalized on the comment in her campaign ads and on the trail, and she easily won a second term and defeated Akin by 16 percentage points.

According to Politico's account of the book, Akin basically is standing by his original comments and blaming the news media for his downfall.

"My comment about a woman's body shutting the pregnancy down was directed to the impact of stress on fertilization. This is something fertility doctors debate and discuss," Akin writes. "Doubt me? Google 'stress and infertility,' and you will find a library of research on the subject."

Akin's Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom comes out July 15

Today's the big day. You're just bought a Tesla Model S. You've waited so long. Saved up all that money. You're going to be the hit of the board room. "So forward thinking, so progressive," they'll say about you. No one will notice your gray hairs now. Just ease it out of the lot. There we go.

BOOM.

Reddit user s1lentway, who posted this most unfortunate(ly hilarious) shot to r/pics, gave a little context:

    We believe this is someone who just got their car. They must have been driving it for less than a minute and lost control, crashing right into the sign missing the show room glass windows only by a few inches. Not the way you want to start out driving a brand new $70K + car that took a few months to make for you.

Now, I must admit I have never personally driven a Tesla Model S, so I can't be 100% sure of what I am about to say. I have, however, driven an automobile before. I have also been assured by someone who has driven a Tesla Model S that the controls are broadly similar, so I am 99.99999999999% certain of the following fact:

The accelerator pedal is on the right, and the brake pedal is on the left.

You know what? No. I'm going to go ahead and say I am 100% certain. Electric cars, while they may seem like spaceships, are cars. Driving them is the same. It's not hard.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that this person simply celebrated their new Tesla purchase a little bit too much before heading out to pick it up.

We've reached out to Tesla for more information on what happened here, and will update the post if we hear back

A 21-year-old selfie-obsessed man in Mexico died in a freak accident after he shot himself in the head while trying to click a picture with a gun.

Oscar Otero Aguilar, a vet from Mexico City, was posing with a handgun for his Facebook page.

However, his search for an impressive profile picture turned tragic when he shot himself in the head and died on the way to hospital.

The gun was loaded and went off as he tried to take the picture, The Huffington Post reported.

Police said he had been messing around with the gun and taking pictures when it accidentally went off.

"I heard a gunshot, and then I heard somebody screaming and realised somebody had been hurt. I called the police straight away and when they arrived they found that he was still alive," Aguilar's neighbour said.

Aguilar's Facebook page is filled with selfies, with pictures of himself in his car, posing with women and other images, the report said.

Teen killed classmate and uploaded ‘selfie’ with the body to Snapchat, police say

Quote
A Pennsylvania teenager has been accused of murdering a classmate and posing with the victim’s body for a “selfie,” according to news reports.

Authorities say 16-year-old Maxwell Marion Morton of Jeannette, Pa., fatally shot 16-year-old Ryan Mangan in the face before taking a photo with Mangan’s body and uploading it to Snapchat, a smartphone application that allows users to send images that are deleted a few seconds after they’re received, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Morton sent the image to a friend, who saved it on his phone before it was deleted, according to Fox News. The friend showed the photo to his mother, who turned the image over to police, according to Fox News.

“[Police] received a copy of the photo which depicted the victim sitting in the chair with a gunshot wound to the face,” a police affidavit states, according to the Tribune-Review. “It also depicts a black male taking the ‘selfie,’ with his face facing the camera and the victim behind the actor. The photo had the name ‘Maxwell’ across the top.”

Police also say the friend received more text messages from Morton, saying: “Told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one,” according to CBS Pittsburgh.

Mangan’s body was discovered by his mother, who contacted police, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Police found a photo of Mangan holding a semiautomatic handgun on his phone, the Post-Gazette reported.

And speaking of the Grammy's, let me say this about that.

I haven't been missing anything apparently. There were some gems and some unique pairings, that I thought worked decently for the most part. Most of it was show and I'm more about the music and singing. AC/DC, ELO... great surprises and entertaining. Annie Lennox definitely showed the young singers today how to really sing and mean it.

I think awards were buried in there somewhere. Then again, I don't care.

I was trying to determine who was lip synching. Don't know if any of what done.

But something that caught my attention was about the audience. I did not see one cell phone being held up or taking selfies. That struck, especially since I think it's all stupid, but one scene caught me where the camera was floating about past people and they weren't doing the pose and selfie crap. I'll bet there was a major rule on that.

And the depressing part was the audience clapping was faked. It was clearly evident when a performer ( I think Dwight Yoakam) was performing center stage in the middle of the audience. After the song closes, thunderous long applause. While the camera pulls back to a bit you can clearly see not one single person clapping. It was just so odd.

Yea, I doubt I'll attempt to watch any more award shows. They are just not my thing.

Professor Fails All Students And Quits The Course

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG-fZJ0l17U


Never has a story been more appropriate for this thread. This is f*cked up because you know for a fact that even without knowing all the information here that a majority of the students are being penalize based on a few other students. Hearing this story instantly brought me back to the same situation I had experienced in College. It was Political Science. I loved the subject matter and studied my ass off and knew I was going to nail the test. WRONG!!!! To my horror, there were questions on the test that I literally thought we were being pranked by our teacher. The one question I always immediately remember was the one where it ask "What type of cereal did Nixon eat when visiting China on his historic trip?" What the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck?!

How is this even relevant to Political Science? Nowhere was this even mentioned in the required book for the class or was it ever discussed in class. Most of the test was littered with this types of questions. Only a handful were legit. The next day back in class, I dreaded getting the news of what I got on the test. I got a 65 out of a 100 and that was actually the highest test score of anyone else in the class and I for one was NOT HAPPY!!!! We all immediately began arguing with the Teacher about the merit of the test itself and he wouldn't acknowledge or address any of it. After class every student stayed behind as he left and we made it a point to all agree to take this "case" to the Dean of the School.The Dean more or less told us to f*ck off (without actually saying the words) and to "study harder". Even with the amount of evidence in front of him, he still wouldn't do anything about the Teacher or the Test.

The really f*cked up thing about it is that about 90% of the class dropped out by the end of the week, myself included. It was a no-win situation. The class was "rigged" from the start and no amount of studying would ever level the playing field when we would be getting questions on the test that were never in any books or discussed in class. I stayed till the end of the week because I wanted to see what kind of questions would be on the quiz and sure enough, more questions of the 'Cereal' variety. I knew it was time to go.

MTV 2015 Video Music Awards Show

Normally I would post this in the Music Section, good and bad. But this was so atrociously awful that it HAS to go in the Glorious Fail thread. But where to begin? Who gets the top prize? Well, I gotta go with Kayne West. What a colossal hypocrite. The guy receives the Video Vanguard Award and then goes on an epic meltdown slamming Awards shows as pointless, and yet he attends each and everyone one of them to keep his name in the papers. I agree, awards shows are pointless. But if you want to be taken seriously, don't attend them you dumbf*ck. If that wasn't enough, he ran his mouth for what seemed like 20 minutes and made no f*cking sense whatsoever. He called out Justin Timberlake for something that happened 6 years ago, he admitted he was high, he kinda slammed Taylor Swift in a roundabout way in spite of her just giving him the award. Oh and to top it off, he announced that he will be running for President in 2020. This has to be taken with a grain of salt. He was high after all. All of this, especially his video montage intro was specifically to remind people is that he is a martyr for all artists out there and yet the music he makes is sh*t. Go figure. Hey Kanye, next time you get an award, just thank your wife, your kids, your fans and then get the f*ck off the stage. Idiot.

Justin Bieber was good for a laugh as his "performance" just further cemented the fact that he is a talent-less hack that has duped millions of girls into believing he is somehow legit. What a pile of sh*t he is. His singing had me laughing hysterically. But it was his dancing that really had me in stitches last night. To top it off, he gives a mini pep talk at the end that is meant to "inspire" but only made him look even dumber than he is. The kicker is that he starts to "cry" when all said and done. Well, fake cry that is as he's trying to create a buzz-worthy moment.

Miley Cyrus. What a f*Cking joke. As host for this years VMA, she went out of her way to really "shock" people. Her costumes were just dumb and did nothing to shock, but more to point out that she is going off the rails in her stupidity. She's not controversial, but just boring. Lady Gaga has been doing this for the last 5 years and Madonna has been doing this for the last 30 years. Speaking of Cyrus, I gotta give Nikki Minaj an A for effort in trying to start a war with her by calling her *bleep*. Still came off as staged, clearly a moment that Nikki wanted to be talked about the next day.

Overall, the show was a disaster from start to finish. I'd say 90% of the performances were awful. Unmemorable to say the least. I hope that MTV will cancel this redundant shows once and for all. On that, I agree with Kayne. KAYNE FOR PREZ!!! NOT!!!

I've been thinking this from the first discussion about minimum wages...

McDonald's Ex-CEO Is Right When He Says A $15 Minimum Wage Would Lead To Automation

Quote
Rensi, the ex-President and CEO of McDonald MCD +0.32% USA, has said that a $15 minimum wage would lead to greater automation within the locations of that company and its franchisees. And, of course, he’s absolutely right. Price changes alter demand.

It’s a useful reminder on the day that the Fight for $15 crowd are demonstrating outside the McDonald’s HQ too. What they’re really demonstrating for is accelerating the date at which their job disappears to a machine. They obviously have every right to make that view known but it does seem an odd thing to be demonstrating for:

    "The campus was shut the third year in a row for protests around the annual shareholder meeting.

    Hundreds of protesters marched through pouring rain to call for higher wages and union rights at McDonald’s Corp on Wednesday, leading the hamburger chain to shut down its headquarters a day before its annual meeting."

I’ve made my basic view about this known already. The U.S. is a rich country and yes, poverty is a relative matter in the manner that humans actually live their lives. Clearly we’re going to make sure that the poor of America live better than many people elsewhere simply because America is a rich country.

However, making $15-an-hour and working full-time (and add in the occasional free meal and some healthcare) puts you into the top 1% of all income owners globally. And I am deeply unconvinced that flipping burgers means you should be in that global 1% as of right.

Rensi makes his point on automation here:

    I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry — it’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging French fries — it’s nonsense and it’s very destructive and it’s inflationary and it’s going to cause a job loss across this country like you’re not going to believe,” said former McDonald’s USA CEO Ed Rensi during an interview on the FOX Business Network’s Mornings with Maria.

He made the same point a little while back here at Forbes:

    Recouping those costs isn’t as simple as raising prices. If it were easy to add big price increases to a meal, it would have already been done without a wage hike to trigger it. In the real world, our industry customers are notoriously sensitive to price increases. (If you’re a McDonald’s regular, there’s a reason you gravitate towards an extra-value meal or the dollar menu.) Instead, franchisees can absorb the cost with a change that customers don’t mind: The substitution of a self-service computer kiosk for a a full-service employee.

    In higher-cost European countries, these kiosks are already the norm. In 2011, the company ordered more than 7,000 of them to replace entry-level employees. They’ve been tested successfully in a number of markets in the U.S., and now the company is even testing self-serve McCafe kiosks where a customer can prepare and customize their own coffee beverage.

Note this carefully: where wage costs are higher then more automation has taken place. We might even note that a higher minimum wage will unleash the “robot rebellion“:

    For years, economists have been issuing predictions about how automation will impact the world’s job markets, but those studies and guesses have yet to make a call based on what would happen if a given sector’s wages rose. Instead, that specific guesswork mantle has been taken up by a former McDonald’s CEO who declared on Tuesday that a rise in the American minimum wage will set our nation’s robotic revolution into motion.

The important thing to understand is that how much labor is employed to do a task will depend upon the price of labor. Say that robotic french fry-making arm does cost $35,000. You have to pay a human worker $7.25 to do that job. You may or may not buy the robot, thinking that with the costs of maintenance of the machine and the greater adaptability of the human, a series of people is a better idea.

Now change that price of labor to $15 an hour. Not everyone will immediately go for the machine, but some people will because economics happens at the margin.

It’s also true that automation is coming, as it has been for the past couple of centuries. But is there a real point in bringing it along any faster? That is what a $15 minimum wage will do, meaning inevitably, some people lose their jobs.

This is not glorious and maybe we should remove the description.

But there are sooooo many fails in this story...

In controversial letter, father defends Stanford sex offender

Brock Turner = Sex Offender
Dan Turner = Father of the Sex Offender and author of the plea letter.
Judge Aaron Persky = Sentencing a sex offender "six months in jail and three years of probation after a judge worried that a stiffer sentence would have a ‘‘severe impact’’ on the 20-year-old."

Quote
Public outrage over the lenient sentencing of a star Stanford swimmer convicted of sexual assault has been compounded by a controversial letter written by the athlete’s father.

Brock Turner was convicted in March of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman at a fraternity party in January 2015 at the elite university. He faced up to 14 years in prison. Prosecutors asked for six.

Instead, Turner received only six months in jail and three years of probation after a judge worried that a stiffer sentence would have a ‘‘severe impact’’ on the 20-year-old.

The light sentence drew harsh criticism from prosecutors and advocates and prompted widespread fury on social media.

That fury intensified Sunday as critics slammed a letter written by Turner’s father as oblivious, ‘‘tone-deaf’’ and ‘‘impossibly offensive.’’

‘‘His life will never be the one that he dreamed about and worked so hard to achieve,’’ Dan A. Turner wrote in a letter arguing that his son should receive probation, not jail time. ‘‘That is a steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action out of his 20 plus years of life.’’

‘‘He will never be his happy go lucky self with that easy going personality and welcoming smile,’’ the letter says, noting that the former Olympic hopeful is now a registered sex offender.

In an interview with The Washington Post early Monday morning, Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen confirmed that the letter had been submitted to the court before Turner’s sentencing last week and criticized the letter for reducing a brutal sexual assault to ‘‘20 minutes of action.’’ He also slammed Turner and his father for refusing to own up to the crime.

‘‘To this day, the defendant denies what he did,’’ Rosen said, adding that Turner ‘‘preyed upon’’ his victim and displayed violence.

Brock Turner’s attorney did not return The Post’s request for comment regarding Dan Turner’s letter.

The controversial letter emerged three days after prosecutors released another letter, this one written by the victim, who has not been named.

The two letters stand in stark contrast. While Dan Turner’s has been described as myopic, the victim’s has been called powerful and moving.

The victim’s letter begins by bluntly addressing her attacker.

‘‘You don’t know me, but you’ve been inside me, and that’s why we’re here today,’’ she read in court. She then described how she decided to attend a party so she could spend time with her younger sister.

‘‘I made silly faces, let my guard down, and drank liquor too fast not factoring in that my tolerance had significantly lowered since college,’’ she said. ‘‘The next thing I remember I was in a gurney in a hallway. I had dried blood and bandages on the backs of my hands and elbow. I thought maybe I had fallen and was in an admin office on campus. I was very calm and wondering where my sister was. A deputy explained I had been assaulted. I still remained calm, assured he was speaking to the wrong person. I knew no one at this party. When I was finally allowed to use the restroom, I pulled down the hospital pants they had given me, went to pull down my underwear, and felt nothing.’’

She described in painful detail how the hospital staff documented her assault with probes and swabs, ‘‘shots, pills, had a nikon pointed right into my spread legs. . . .

‘‘I wanted to take off my body like a jacket and leave it at the hospital with everything else.’’

She described Turner as a predator picking off ‘‘the wounded antelope of the herd, completely alone and vulnerable, physically unable to fend for myself. . . .’’

She added: ‘‘Sometimes I think, if I hadn’t gone, then this never would’ve happened. But then I realized, it would have happened, just to somebody else. You were about to enter four years of access to drunk girls and parties, and if this is the foot you started off on, then it is right you did not continue.’’

‘‘You do not get to shrug your shoulders and be confused anymore,’’ she said of his conviction. ‘‘You have been convicted of violating me with malicious intent, and all you can admit to is consuming alcohol. Do not talk about the sad way your life was upturned because alcohol made you do bad things.’’

And yet, that is essentially the tone of Turner’s father’s letter.

Dan Turner’s letter begins with brisk reference to the sexual assault.

‘‘First of all, let me say that Brock is absolutely devastated by the events of January 17th and 18th 2015,’’ it says. ‘‘He would do anything to turn back the hands of time and have that night to do over again. In many one-on-one conversations with Brock since that day, I can tell you that he is truly sorry for what occurred that night and for all the pain and suffering that it has caused for all those involved and impacted by that night. He has expressed true remorse for his actions on that night.’’

Rosen said, however, that Brock Turner never accepted responsibility for the assault. Had he done so, prosecutors probably would have agreed to a sentence of less than six years.

Dan Turner’s letter then launches into a description of his son’s ‘‘easygoing personality’’ and the ‘‘inner strength’’ that made him such a good swimmer.

Dan Turner said he and his son were ‘‘totally in awe’’ of Stanford’s campus, and noted with pride the school’s 4 percent acceptance rate.

Turner then described his son not as a sexual predator, but as a victim.

‘‘He excelled in school that quarter earning the top GPA for all freshmen on the swim team,’’ the father wrote in his letter. ‘‘What we didn’t realize was the extent to which Brock was struggling being so far from home. . . . When Brock was home during the Christmas break, he broke down and told us how much he was struggling to fit in socially.

‘‘In hindsight, it’s clear that Brock was desperately trying to fit in at Stanford and fell into the culture of alcohol consumption and partying,’’ Dan Turner concluded. ‘‘This culture was modeled by many of the upperclassmen on the swim team and played a role in the events of Jan 17th and 18th 2015.’’

During the trial, prosecutors had argued that Brock Turner was part of a bigger problem.

‘‘He may not look like a rapist, but he is the . . . face of campus sexual assault,’’ Deputy District Attorney Alaleh Kianerci told the jury, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

In his letter to the judge, however, Dan Turner appeared to be flipping this script, using the pervasiveness of the problem as a shield to hide his son’s personal responsibility.

The Internet was not having it.

Prompting particular social media outrage was the way Dan Turner portrayed his son’s suffering.

‘‘His every waking minute is consumed with worry, anxiety, fear, and depression,’’ the father wrote. ‘‘You can see this in his face, the way he walks, his weakened voice, his lack of appetite. Brock always enjoyed certain types of food and is a very good cook himself. I was always excited to buy him a big ribeye steak to grill or to get his favorite steak for him. . . . Now he barely consumes any food and eats only to exist.’’

The letter, which was first published by liberal website ThinkProgess, makes no explicit reference to Brock Turner’s victim, meanwhile.

Despite what critics called its tone-deafness, however, the letter apparently worked.

Judge Aaron Persky agreed with probation officials’ recommendation that Turner receive only six months in jail.

‘‘A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him. . . . I think he will not be a danger to others,’’ the judge said, citing Turner’s youth and lack of criminal record, the Guardian reported.

That ruling has also made Persky a target of public ire. In the days since his decision, a Change.org petition calling for his removal has gathered almost 12,000 signatures. The petition also called for someone to challenge Persky in an upcoming election, in which he is currently unopposed.

Rosen said he was disappointed that Persky did not sentence Turner to more time.

At the same time, the prosecutor said he saw a silver lining in how the case and Turner’s lenient sentence had ‘‘led to a frank discussion about how to prevent campus sexual assault and what those campuses should do when it happens.

‘‘Honestly, what has helped to create such national attention in this case is the eloquence of the victim,’’ he added. ‘‘Never in my 20 years as a prosecutor have I seen a more eloquent victim statement.’’

Rosen said her letter had done more than just tell her tale. It had ‘‘come to represent the truth of thousands of sexual assault victims have experienced as well.’’

Indeed, her letter slammed Brock Turner for his solipsism.

‘‘You said, I want to show people that one night of drinking can ruin a life,’’ she wrote.

‘‘Ruin a life, one life, yours, you forgot about mine. Let me rephrase for you, I want to show people that one night of drinking can ruin two lives. You and me. You are the cause, I am the effect. . . .

‘‘You have dragged me through this hell with you, dipped me back into that night again and again. You knocked down both our towers, I collapsed at the same time you did. Your damage was concrete; stripped of titles, degrees, enrollment. My damage was internal, unseen, I carry it with me. You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my safety, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today.

Dad to dad: Open letter blasts father of Stanford rapist

Quote
An open letter written by a North Carolina father chastising the father of Stanford University rapist Brock Turner was swept up Wednesday in the social media tide triggered by the savage crime and the controversy surrounding its punishment.

Turner, 20, was found guilty in March of three counts of sexual assault for the attack on an unconscious woman in January 2015. He was arrested after two graduate students witnessed the assault near an outside trash bin and intervened, tackling Turner when he tried to flee. Last week, Turner was sentenced to six months in jail and three years probation, a ruling roundly criticized as too lenient.

A powerful, impassioned letter written by Turner's 23-year-old victim went viral, and a dubious defense missive written by the rapist's father, Dan Turner, drew almost as much attention across the nation.

Turner's letter also drew the attention of John Pavlovitz, a pastor and blogger in Wake Forest, N.C. Pavlovitz penned a blog post To Brock Turner’s Father, From Another Father. Pavlovitz writes that "Brock is not the victim here. His victim is the victim. She is the wounded one. He is the damager."

Pavlovitz's blog, johnpavlovitz.com, has been overwhelmed with readers and responses — "Keep refreshing if you get errors," Pavlovitz tweeted Wednesday to frustrated would-be readers.

Dan Turner, in a letter to the judge seeking probation for his son, wrote that Brock, now 20, will never again be "his happy-go-lucky self." Turner said his son has been anxious, depressed and no longer enjoys his favorite foods.

“His life will never be the one that he dreamed about and worked so hard to achieve,” Turner wrote in a letter seeking a term of probation for his son, a member of the Stanford swim team before he was kicked out of school. “That is a steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action out of his 20-plus years of life.”

Pavlovitz sees it differently. He writes the victim will be dealing with the pain of the attack "far longer than the embarrassingly short six months your son is being penalized." Pavlovitz adds "the fact that you seem unaware of this fact is exactly why we have a problem."

"There is no scenario where your son should be the sympathetic figure here," he says, adding that "the idea that your son has never violated another woman next to a dumpster before isn’t a credit to his character. We don’t get kudos for only raping one person in our lifetime."

Pavlovitz says he does not believe Brock Turner is a "monster." But he says Brock Turner must register as a sex offender and otherwise pay a steep price because he acted like one.

"You love your son and you should. But love him enough to teach him to own the terrible decisions he’s made, to pay the debt to society as prescribed, and then to find a redemptive path to walk, doing the great work in the world that you say he will," Pavlovitz concludes. "For now though, as one father to another: help us teach our children to do better — by letting them see us do better."

Juror in Stanford R A P E case pens scathing letter to judge, blasts ‘ridiculously lenient’ prison sentence

Quote
You had to justify that there were “unusual circumstances” to give Mr. Turner less than the two year minimum sentence for his crime. But the unfortunate fact is, these circumstances are not unusual. Women like Ms. Doe suffer daily from similar crimes and I fear your sentence will make these victims less willing to report their attacks.

This punishment does not fit the crime. Mr. Turner, convicted of 3 felony counts of sexual assault, will serve 3 months in county jail since he is scheduled to be released on September 2. And Mr. Turner is going to appeal the verdict, which not only is a complete waste of tax payers’ money but could mean, if he gets off, that he will not even have to register as a sex offender. How unjust would that outcome be, the slate wiped clean for a 3-count convicted sex offender?!

Justice has not been served in this case. The jury’s verdict of guilt on all three felony counts of sexual assault was completely disregarded in an effort to spare the perpetrator a ‘hardship’. What message does this send to [the victim], and indeed all victims of sexual assault and ****, especially those on college campuses? Your concern was for the impact on the assailant. I vehemently disagree, our concern should be for the victim.

Shame on you.

I'm real curious to see how Robbins spins this.  They do this at a lot of his seminars and when the fire is made CORRECTLY (which it clearly wasn't in this case), it's rather safe.  Though I have to figure there's some sort of speech or spin he's always had in reserve in case something like this happened.
