Diversity vs. Necessity...Jackassery wins every time...

Health experts warn against complacency in fighting viruses how do we address that?

Muslim doctors and nurses are to be allowed to opt out of strict hygiene rules introduced by the NHS to restrict the spread of hospital superbugs.
Unbelievable ignorance to appease...

Celebutards are shallow and daft...

I sort of like Simon Pegg. You know..."Shaun of the Dead"...and Scotty in the new Star Trek film. Of course, he's not a MENSA candidate...and he seems to be rather oblivious to reality. Take this Tweet, for example:

Fingers crossed for healthcare reform in the US. Seems strange there's even a debate having grown up with the NHS. Free vs expensive ... hmm
Yeah...that sums up the argument.

Well, Simon...NHS, huh? It's truly...what...fantastic?

The NHS fails again, and again it seems nobody is to blame

NHS 'fails to involve patients'

System that puts targets before patients fails NHS

Man Dies After the NHS Fails to Diagnose a Stroke Three Times

NHS fails the elderly

Labour hid ugly truth about National Health Service (NHS)

Billions squandered as the NHS fails to deliver

NHS 'fails' youngsters with muscle diseases

NHS dentistry fails Preston youngsters

NHS fails to act on dementia: NAO

Here's my favorite, Simon:

A PATIENT was left infertile after doctors operating on his testicle removed the wrong one.
Another Celebutard weighs in on the argument, and offsets a feather. Staggering intellect...indeed.

Watching the bowl swirl...

Last week I provided a quick lesson in "demographic marginalization" to Matt Damon. This week, the audience (or lack thereof) is teaching him the same lesson.

Breitbart's Big Hollywood has the story. In short...Damon's film was made for $100 Million (on paper). It pulled in a putrid $14.5 Million upon debut. I said it before. I'll say it again:

Hi...I'm Matt Damon. I stand on an "X", face the lense, and regurgitate words that someone wrote for me. That, of course, qualifies me as a world class thinker. You should listen to me and take heed because I'm cerebral. I'm Matt Damon.

Equal Opportunity Stupidity and Duplicity...

City education officials discriminated against an Arabic-language school principal when they canned her for making comments to The Post defending students who wore shirts with the words "Intifada NYC," according to a ruling by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

In the decision, released by her supporters yesterday, the EEOC says the Education Department "succumbed to the very bias that creation of the school was intended to dispel."

Debbie Almontaser, who headed up the Khalil Gibran International Academy in Brooklyn, told The Post in 2007 that "intifada" on the shirts meant simply "shaking off oppression" and was not an endorsement of the Palestinian uprising against Israel.

Therefore, no one would be upset if I sported a T-shirt that stated:

"Fight Pedophelia...don't acknowledge Mohammad."
Right? Same premise...right...Bueller...Bueller? Or maybe I'll just draw a cartoon of Mohammad throwing stones at a rape victim.

Bait and Switch techniques by the media on AGW

Does anyone else find it amusing that USA Today puts the following headline/graphic display out front and center:

Here's the by-line they used.

Questions about research slow climate change efforts
Then...the entire voluminous article is a puff piece to give Michael Mann (discredited Hockey Stick theory dreamer) and life long political hack/mouthpiece/environmental zealot, Carol Browner an opportunity to zing the skeptics while conveniently limiting the absolute turmoil and negative exposure they have experienced due to truth seeing the light of day.

Classic bait and switch. Patently obvious, though.

UPDATE: Take a gander at the comments to the article. The media truly underestimates the motivation and intelligence of their dwindling readers. Its gimmic articles such as this that make those numbers continue to dwindle.

Alphabet words...

This has got to be the most politically correct stupidity so far. Ok...ready? I'm going to write a sentence that, apparently, offends. Here goes:

"My car was going too fast so I tapped the brakes to retard the velocity a bit."

That's right. The above sentence is offensive to some folks. Those same folks think that everyone should be offended and refuse to use the word retard. You can't ban words with more than one meaning. It's idiotic.

Think I'm embellishing the effort being made to void a word. Look:

I hope the matzoh ball soup was cold...

*Heh*...Biden is in Israel flexing his Vice Presidential muscles trying to give the impression that the President he represents is interested in a peace initiative between Israel and the Palestinians. Benjamin Netanyahu used the occasion to announce that Israel will build a further 1,600 housing units in a Jewish settlement in occupied East Jerusalem.


What was Biden's response?

After the settlements announcement, Mr Biden arrived 90 minutes late for dinner with Mr Netanyahu.
Netanyahu and the crew probably got a kick out of this. The only ones inconvenienced were, likely, those preparing the meal.

Incidentally, this is the same "hardline" diplomacy used by the White House in dealing with the jack-assery presented by the Iranians and their obsession with securing nuclear capability. The current administration is, obviously, consistently inept across the board.

Those nasty Catholics...

DUBLIN (AP) -- Police in Ireland on Tuesday arrested seven people over an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist who depicted the Prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog.

Irish police said four men and three women were detained in raids across the south of the country.

The force says the arrests were part of an investigation into a ''conspiracy to murder an individual in another jurisdiction.''

The force offered the statement in response to a question about Lars Vilks, whom Britain's Press Association news agency identified as the target.
Good luck ID'ing the physical appearances or motivational beliefs of the culprits...

I could be wrong. Might be Presbyterians...In any event, here is the offending cartoon that serves to motivate murder:



JERUSALEM — Calling Washington’s ties to Israel “unshakable,” Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. opened talks with Israeli leaders on Tuesday, part of a concerted American effort to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and keep Israel focused on sanctions against Iran’s nuclear program rather than unilateral military action.
Joe the gaffe machine makes a definitive statement calling our relationship with Israel "unshakable." Well...Israelis....RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!
