General / In Honor of the 5th of November.
« on: November 05, 2009, 11:26:59 AM »
I have to say that I think Guy Fawkes masks are lame.  Anyone who runs around wearing one as part of a protest is a douche bag.  Try something new you unoriginal dumb-asses. 

General / Mum blames daughter's rape on bestiality
« on: October 22, 2009, 11:24:16 AM »

A Queensland mother has admitted to begging and slapping her daughter when she refused to have sex with her then 32-year-old partner.

Giving evidence in court, the woman said her partner had threatened to release bestiality photos involving her if she did not get her 15-year-old daughter to sleep with him, the Townsville Bulletin reports.

The woman said that after a night of heavy drinking, the man had taken photographs of her having sex with his cattle dog Buster.

When he then blackmailed her she asked her daughter to have sex with him.

''She said 'no' straight up," the Townsville Bulletin quoted the woman as saying.

In an attempt to recover the bestiality images in a swap, the mother then took photos of her daughter naked and gave them to the man.

But the man allegedly continued to demand sex with her daughter and the girl refused.

''It was something she didn't want to do,'' the woman said.

Desperate for the photos to remain a secret, the woman took her daughter to a local hotel and booked two rooms.

They had some dinner and alcohol before the man arrived and she left them alone together.

When the woman saw her daughter again she was upset and crying but told her nothing had happened.

Two weeks later, the pair was staying at the man's house when he allegedly demanded sex from the daughter.

The woman said he was refused but about four hours later he left her bed and went to her daughter's bedroom, where he raped her.

After being intimidated into having sex with the man on several occasions the girl fled the house in May 2005. She told a told a friend about the alleged abuse and authorities became involved.

The man admitted to having sex with the 15-year-old but insisted it had been consensual.

The trial continues.

General / Couple arrested for directing protesters.
« on: October 04, 2009, 07:42:56 PM »

State police have accused two anarchists from New York of using cell phones and the Internet messaging service Twitter to direct the movements of protesters during the Group of 20 summit in Pittsburgh.

Police arrested Elliot M. Madison, 41, and Michael Wallschlaeger, 46, both of Jackson Heights, N.Y., after they found them Sept. 24 in a Kennedy Township hotel room full of computers, police scanners and Pittsburgh-area maps, according to a state police criminal complaint.

FBI agents spent 16 hours Friday raiding the home of Madison and his wife, Elena, according to a federal court motion filed in Brooklyn, N.Y., by Madison's attorney Martin R. Stolar seeking the return of Madison's possessions that were seized in the raid.

Stolar did not return a message seeking comment Saturday. No one answered the phone at a number listed for Madison.

Wallschlaeger and Madison wore headphones and microphones as they sat in front of computers they used to send Twitter messages to protesters in Pittsburgh to help them move about the city "and to inform the protesters and groups of the movements and actions of law enforcement," the state police complaint states.

State police in Findlay obtained a warrant to search the second-floor room at the Carefree Inn on Kisow Drive based on a tip they received about criminal activity related to the G-20 protests.

Police arrested 190 protesters of an estimated 5,000 people who participated in marches and demonstrations in Oakland, Lawrenceville, the Strip District and Downtown during the summit Sept. 24 and 25.

Madison and Wallschlaeger face charges in Allegheny County of hindering apprehension or prosecution, criminal use of a communication facility and possessing instruments of crime.

A manager at the Carefree Inn said he was not permitted to discuss the matter.

Madison posted $30,000 straight bail and was released Sept. 25. Wallschlaeger posted $5,000 and was released the same day, court records show. Both face preliminary hearings Oct. 13.

Among the items seized by the FBI were: computers; cell phones; MP3 players; anarchist literature and books, including some authored by Madison; business records connected to Wallschlaeger's radio talk show "This Week in Radical History"; and pictures of Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx.

Records show they seized 11 gas masks, five pairs of goggles, a slingshot, four arm pads, eight face masks and a collection of test tubes, droppers, mortar and pestle and beakers.

Stolar said the FBI violated the terms of its search warrant and Madison's First Amendment rights by taking "a number of documents and other properties having nothing to do with the government's investigation."

According to Stolar's motion, Elliott and Elena Madison are political activists who deal with social justice issues and provide legal support for protesters. Elliott Madison is a social worker employed for the past 10 years by Fountain House, a psychiatric-social program with a principal office in Manhattan. Elena Madison is an urban planner and is assistant vice president of the Project for Public Spaces.

The Madisons describe themselves as anarchists affiliated with a confederation known as "The Peoples' Law Collective."

U.S. District Court Judge Dora Irizarry of Brooklyn ruled Friday that FBI agents can't analyze the seized property until Stolar's motion for its return is resolved, court records show.


General / Warsaw ghetto uprising leader Edelman dies at 90
« on: October 04, 2009, 03:18:37 PM »
WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader of the ill-fated 1943 Warsaw ghetto revolt against the Nazis, died Friday at the age of 90.

Edelman died of old age at the family home of his friend Paula Sawicka, where he had lived for the past two years.

"He died at home, among friends, among his close people," Sawicka told The Associated Press.

Most of Edelman's adult life was dedicated to the defense of human life, dignity and freedom. He fought the Nazis in the doomed Warsaw ghetto revolt and later in the Warsaw city Uprising. And then for decades he fought communism in Poland.

His heroism earned him the French Legion of Honor and Poland's highest civilian distinction, the Order of the White Eagle.

Former Israeli ambassador to Poland Shevach Weiss paid tribute to Edelman.

"He will remain in my memory as a fighting hero, a man of great courage," Weiss said. "He never ceased in his struggle for human freedom and for Poland's freedom."

The uprising at the Warsaw ghetto was the first act of large-scale armed civilian resistance against the Germans in occupied Poland during World War II.

One of the few survivors of three weeks of uneven struggle in the Warsaw ghetto, Edelman felt obliged to preserve the memory of the fallen heroes of that first large-scale Jewish revolt against the Nazis. Each year, on the revolt's anniversary, he laid flowers at Warsaw's monument to the ghetto heroes, and called for tolerance.

"Remember them all - boys and girls - 220 altogether, not too many to remember their faces, their names," he said of the young fighters in a 2008 interview with The Associated Press.

'Man is evil, by nature man is a beast," he said then. Therefore people "have to be educated from childhood, from kindergarten, that there should be no hatred."

He also felt obliged to appeal repeatedly to the world for freedom and peace - even when it had to be won in a fight.

"When you cannot defend freedom through peaceful means, you have to use arms to fight Nazism, dictatorship, chauvinism," Edelman said in the 2008 interview in his apartment in the central city of Lodz, which was filled with portraits of Jews and of scenes reminiscent of the Holocaust.

He worked at a city hospital Lodz, almost to his last day.

Edelman was born Jan. 1, 1919 in Homel, which was then in eastern Poland and is now in Belarus. His family soon moved to Warsaw.

When the Nazis invaded Poland on Sept.1, 1939, Edelman was member of Bund, a Jewish socialist organization that later masterminded plans for resistance against the occupying Germans.

The Germans set up the Warsaw ghetto in November 1940, cramming some 460,000 Jews from the city and from across Poland in inhuman conditions. After a year, almost half the people there had died of disease and starvation.

The resistance plans were implemented April 19, 1943, when the Nazis moved to liquidate the ghetto by killing or sending some remaining 60,000 residents to the death camps. Thousands were put on regular transports to the death camps of Treblinka, Majdanek and Sobibor.

But that April, the well-trained German troops encountered unexpectedly fierce resistance from a few hundred young, poorly armed Jewish civilians, determined to die fighting rather than in gas chambers.

At the age of 23, Edelman took command of a brush-makers unit, based at a brush factory.

"No one believed they would be saved," Edelman said. "We knew the struggle was doomed, but it showed the world there was resistance against the Nazis, that you could fight the Nazis."

"Every moment was difficult. It was two or three or 10 boys fighting with an army," Edelman said in 2008. "There were no easy moments."

They had few guns and no food but were driven by a goal.

The Nazis "wanted to destroy the people and we fought to protect the people in the ghetto, to extend their lives by a day, or two or five," he said.

The ghetto fighters inflicted heavy losses on the Germans, but eventually succumbed. More than 55,000 people were killed or deported to Nazi concentration camps when the uprising failed.

The uprising's leaders were rounded up in a bunker and, seeing no chance of escape, committed suicide on May 8, 1943.

The Nazis razed the ghetto street by street, as part of their so-called "final solution" in which they killed 6 million people in their efforts to wipe out European Jewry.

Edelman was not in the bunker. With a small group of survivors, he left through the sewers to the Aryan side of Warsaw, where he found places to hide and helped coordinate Jewish partisan groups in nearby forests.

The deadly struggle was "worth it ... even at the price of the fighters' lives," he said later. "They could not be saved, anyway."

In August and September of 1944, Edelman fought in the Warsaw Uprising, another ill-fated revolt meant to free the capital from Germans ahead of the advancing Red Army.

After the war, Edelman became a cardiologist in Lodz. He joined the democratic opposition and the Solidarity freedom movement, and was interned under the Dec.13, 1981, martial law aimed against Solidarity.

In the end, the Solidarity movement led to the ouster of communists from power in Poland in 1989.

Edelman's wife, Alina Margolis-Edelman, worked as a nurse in the Warsaw ghetto and after the war became a pediatrician. With their son, Aleksander, and daughter, Anna, she left Poland for France following the communist-sponsored anti-Semitic purges of 1968. She died in Paris on March 23, 2008.

But Edelman never wanted to leave Poland.

"When you were responsible for the life of some 60,000 people, you don't leave and abandon the memory of them," he told the AP.

He held honorary doctorate of the Yale University.

He is survived by his son, Aleksander, his daughter, Anna, and grandchildren Liza and Tomek.


General / State goes after babysitter
« on: September 30, 2009, 01:41:54 AM »
More bullshit

Regulators who oversee child care, however, don't see it as charity. Days after the start of the new school year, Snyder received a letter from the Michigan Department of Human Services warning her that if she continued, she'd be violating a law aimed at the operators of unlicensed day care centers.

"I was freaked out. I was blown away," she said. "I got on the phone immediately, called my husband, then I called all the girls" — that is, the mothers whose kids she watches — "every one of them."

Snyder's predicament has led to a debate in Michigan about whether a law that says no one may care for unrelated children in their home for more than four weeks each calendar year unless they are licensed day-care providers needs to be changed. It also has irked parents who say they depend on such friendly offers to help them balance work and family.

On Tuesday, agency Director Ismael Ahmed said good neighbors should be allowed to help each other ensure their children are safe. Gov. Jennifer Granholm instructed Ahmed to work with the state Legislature to change the law, he said.

"Being a good neighbor means helping your neighbors who are in need," Ahmed said in a written statement. "This could be as simple as providing a cup of sugar, monitoring their house while they're on vacation or making sure their children are safe while they wait for the school bus."


General / New London Got FUCKED
« on: September 26, 2009, 11:55:59 PM »
This is just fucking hilarious.  New London should get a plaque for being such assholes. 

NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - Weeds, glass, bricks, pieces of pipe and shingle splinters have replaced the knot of aging homes at the site of the nation's most notorious eminent domain project.

There are a few signs of life: Feral cats glare at visitors from a miniature jungle of Queen Anne's lace, thistle and goldenrod. Gulls swoop between the lot's towering trees and the adjacent sewage treatment plant.

But what of the promised building boom that was supposed to come wrapped and ribboned with up to 3,169 new jobs and $1.2 million a year in tax revenues? They are noticeably missing.

Proponents of the ambitious plan blame the sour economy. Opponents call it a "poetic justice."

"They are getting what they deserve. They are going to get nothing," said Susette Kelo, the lead plaintiff in the landmark property rights case. "I don't think this is what the United States Supreme Court justices had in mind when they made this decision."

Kelo's iconic pink home sat for more than a century on that currently empty lot, just steps away from Connecticut's quaint but economically distressed Long Island Sound waterfront. Shortly after she moved in, in 1997, her house became ground zero in the nation's best-known land rights catfight.

New London officials decided they needed Kelo's land and the surrounding 90 acres for a multimillion-dollar private development that included residential, hotel conference, research and development space and a new state park that would complement a new $350 million Pfizer pharmaceutical research facility.

Kelo and six other homeowners fought for years, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2005, justices voted 5-4 against them, giving cities across the country the right to use eminent domain to take property for private development.

The decision was sharply criticized and created grassroots backlash. Forty states quickly passed new, protective rules and regulations, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Some protesters even tried to turn the tables on now-retired Justice David Souter, trying unsuccessfully in 2006 to take his New Hampshire home by eminent domain to build an inn.

In New London the city's prized economic development plan has fallen apart as the economy crumbled.

The Corcoran Jennison Cos., a Boston-based developer, had originally locked in exclusive rights to develop nearly the entire northern half of the Fort Trumbull peninsula.

But those rights expired in June 2008, despite multiple extensions, because the firm was unable to secure financing, according to President Marty Jones.

In July, backers halted fundraising for the project's crown jewel, a proposed $60 million, 60,000-square-foot Coast Guard museum.

The poor economy meant that donations weren't "keeping pace with expenses," said Coast Guard Foundation president Anne Brengle.

The group hopes to resume fundraising in the future, she said.

Overall, proponents say about two-thirds of the 90-acre site is developed, in part because of a 16-acre, $25 million state park. The other third of the land remains without the promised residential housing, office buildings, shops and hotel/conference center facility.

"If there had been no litigation, which took years to work its way through (the court system), then a substantial portion of this project would be constructed by now," said John Brooks, executive director of the New London Development Corp. "But we are victims of the economic cycle, and there is nothing we can do about that."

A new engineering tenant is moving into one of the office buildings at 1 Chelsea St., and a bio tech firm with as many as five employees is getting ready to move into an existing building on Howard Street, Brooks said.

Kelo, paid $442,000 by the state for her old property, now lives across the Thames River in Groton, in a white, two-bedroom 1950s bungalow. Her beloved pink house was sold for a dollar and moved less than two miles away, where a local preservationist has refurbished it.

Kelo can see her old neighborhood from her new home, but she finds the view too painful to bear.

"Everything is different, but everything is like still the same," said Kelo, who works two jobs and has largely maintained a low profile since moving away. "You still have life to deal with every day of the week. I just don't have eminent domain to deal with every day of the week, even after I ate, slept and breathed it for 10 years."

Although her side lost, Kelo said she sees the wider ramifications of her property rights battle.

"In the end it was seven of us who fought like wild animals to save what we had," she said. "I think that though we ultimately didn't win for ourselves, it has brought attention to what they did to us, and if it can make it better for some other people so they don't lose their homes to a Dunkin' Donuts or a Wal-Mart, I think we did some good."

Scott Bullock, senior attorney for the Institute for Justice, argued Kelo's case before the Supreme Court. He calls "massive changes that have happened in the law and in the public consciousness" the "real legacy" of Kelo and the other plaintiffs.

The empty land means the city won a "hollow victory," he said.

"What cities should take from this is to run fleeing from what New London did and do economic development that is market-driven and incorporate properties of folks who are truly committed to their neighborhood and simply want to be a part of what happens," he said.


General / Afgan conscription to fight US war
« on: September 26, 2009, 02:53:45 PM »
Enslave a bunch of Afganis to fight an American war against other Afganis.  That is a sure recipe for success.  What are these assholes thinking?

Citing targets imposed on the nation by the United States, the Afghan Defense Ministry reports that it is now drawing up a plan to impose conscription on the war torn nation as a way of meeting the US requirements.

Already nearly 100,000 strong, the US is continually pressing Afghanistan to dramatically increase its military’s size, and is now hoping they will eventually have 240,000, an enormous number for the impoverished nation.

But even though jobs are tough to come by in Afghanistan, many of its residents aren’t exactly enamoured with the idea of joining the poorly-trained military of an increasingly weakened government facing an ever escalating war against a powerful insurgency. Fortunately for the Afghan government, their post-occupation constitution gives them the authority to draft people to fill their military shortfalls.

General / Building manager posts pics of man who urinated in lobby
« on: August 30, 2009, 10:03:55 PM »

TORONTO -- Unlike the guy who peed all over his hallway, Alex Hess walks softly but carries a big ... tape gun.

The building manager has been waging a one-man campaign for three weeks against the anonymous urinator and his small penis -- ever since the 26-year-old walked into the open-air entranceway of his Queen St. W. home early that fateful Saturday and found it had been treated like a very public washroom.

Only one problem for that pesky piddler, Hess' lobby security camera had it all on tape. Talk about marking your territory.

The footage from that night clearly shows a young man walking into the lobby, checking around, unzipping and then peeing all over the floor.

"He just starts peeing all over the floor of the lobby," Hess said. "Usually people just pee into the corner but this guy decided to just pee all over the floor. I guess he was just being a dick."

With his building around Queen St. W. and Dufferin St., Hess said he gets his share of partygoers looking to relieve themselves while walking between bars but after several years of just being "pissed off," he had had enough that night.

Minutes after he mopped up the mess, he was out in his neighbourhood armed with his tape gun and a stapler, putting up posters with the man's picture underneath the big, bold, black words, "small penis alert."

Yes, Hess found some good things do come from small packages, eventually.

"The message is, if you pee on my building, I'm going to make fun of your manhood," Hess said, as a few pedestrians had a good laugh over his new crop of posters yesterday.

But rather than limit the humiliation to Parkdale, Hess did what everyone seems to do with good video nowadays, he put it online.

The original YouTube video has been watched more than 12,000 times and even has an arrow pointing to the man's groin saying "small penis."

If you factor in the subsequent media reports, around 50,000 people have watched that stranger going to the bathroom on YouTube alone.

And that, Hess says, is perhaps the sweetest revenge of all. "There's not a lot of legal options, so I figure if there is something I can do to embarrass him or make me feel better, this is one of those things."

His website, smallpenisalert.com, does appeal for anyone who recognizes the man's face, or other bits, to contact Hess. "A couple people gave me tips on who they think it might be," he said.

So far Hess hasn't been able to attach a name to the piddler, but he hopes he won't pull his hot dog out in his hallway again or at least brush up on his potty training.

General / Guns are the danger?
« on: August 24, 2009, 11:25:33 AM »
You've got a government that spies on citizens without a warrant., denies due process of the law to people accused of 'terrorist acts', tortures prisoners in its custody, engaged in the practice of extraordinary rendition, has asserted a right to detain suspect indefinitely without a trial, try people in court using secret evidence, denying people Habeas Corpus.   Violates every amendment of the Bill of Rights with impunity. 

and yet it is the handful of people who have showed up at protests armed with a gun that is a danger to democracy?
