Soy Products: I'll Stick to Eating Animals

According to this article, soy products aren't as wonderful as many people believe.

27,200 square km of Amazon rainforest was clearcut between 2003 and 2004 for the sole purpose of growing soybeans. Most (75 to 89%) of the soy products you buy are made from genetically modified soybeans. Soy milk contains phytates that block the absorption of alcium, magnesium, iron and zinc in the intestinal tract. Soy isoflavones produce estrogen-like effects in the body...think of the babies on soy formula.

Yet another reason I am proud to be one of the People Eating Tasty Animals.

Miami Reporter Arrested

Jeff Weinsier, a television reporter in Miami, was arrested for being on a sidewalk near a school. The police officers asked him to kindly move across the street, claiming that was a lawful order. He disagreed, but went across the street, call the police PIO and was told that it was a public place and he could be there. Of course they cops didn't care and arrested him for disobeying an unlawful order. Police officers need to get educated on what they are allowed to do and say instead of thinking the badge gives them absolute authority. So far the badge doesn't...of course that will change as soon as King George has is way I suppose.

I've not really jumped onto the cop-bashing bandwagon like a lot of people have. I have several friends who happen to be police officers. As a disclaimer, these guys are only my friends because they are good cops. I have worked closely with cops who have the "do what I tell you 'cause I'm a cop" attitude, and therefore I have never cultivated a friendship with them.

I have heard a second-hand report from a friend that got hired as a cop, wanting to help people. He went to the academy where they taught him to exert his authority at every opportunity and show those citizens who is in charge. He quit...good guy.

Women Send Panties to Myanmar

It seems that the powers that be in Burma are under attack. According to Lanna Action for Burma, the Junta leaders believe that touching a woman's panties saps them of power. So now Women are sending panties to Myanmar. This has to be the most awesome protest ever. I wonder, do they have to be used or new?

Family Planning to be Headed by Susan Orr

This is just fucking silly. Hey, who cares what the World Health Organization has to say. How about we just appoint the Pope to handle the contraception department? I think I see a method to Bush's madness. In fewer than a score of years he'll have many many more expendable lives to fight in his wars.

Trick or Treat!!

Searching for a Halloween costume for your infant can be difficult. Well, you need look no farther than these Bloody Bonnets. I can just imagine the looks you'll get from the home owners in a small conservative town. But why stop with Halloween, I'm sure the hats are warm enough to use every day. Grocery stores, restaurants, social services visits....these things have endless possibilities.


The New World Order has a grand dream of exterminating 80% of all living people on the planet, and that dream is nearing reality. That is the claim of Alex Jones' Endgame which will be available on the web October 26. This may be worth watching.

9/11 Conspiracy Theory

This guy has put together a nice set of links that offers a compelling argument that the attacks on the World Trade Center were staged by the government. It may not be air-tight, but it makes for an interesting read.

Bush not a TOTAL idiot

Well, I didn't think I would ever have anything good to say about Dubya, but I have finally found one small piece of information to support my theory that he is not a total moron.

George.W. Bush Thinks Christians Are Idiots

I still think he is an evil bastard, but I think that this proves he isn't completely stupid. It is my belief that he acts like a dumbass to divert our attention from his real plans to become supreme overlord or something. While everyone is concentrating on the upcoming election, I believe he is laying his plans to not even have an election and remain in power. I hope I am wrong.

Another Nice Sexual Predator Page

Stop Baptist Predators has a nice little listing of some Baptist ministers that have used their influential positions to carry out God's will. I suppose if I keep looking for these I will find a sex predator site for nearly every christian flavor of religion out there.

Don't Miss the Point

Now for a moment, I'd like everyone to slow down and think about, well, everything. Life keeps us busy enough and a lot of us always seem to have our eye on the prize. How do you know the prize will be worth it? Think of all you give up for the prize. Sorta like the person that buys $100 in scratch-off lotto tickets that gets excited about winning $5.

The Difference Between Them and Us

Up north of us somewhere in Canada, there is a man that has made a few mistakes in life. He has indeed done some things that I personally find reprehensible.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the victim's identity, pleaded guilty in May to committing incest and sexually assaulting his daughter over a 14-year period.

He also pleaded guilty to committing bestiality with dogs and a horse over a nearly 16-year period, forcing his daughter to commit bestiality with a dog and trying to get the victim's younger sister to sexually touch him.

The kicker is that they are having trouble deciding if he should be given a dangerous offender tag or not.

Now, down this way in New Hampshire, a 17 year old Boy had sex with his 15 year old girlfriend, consensually. This is natural, this is normal. The girl's father hears about it and promptly runs down to the school and beats the living shit out of the kid.

The boy suffered cuts and bruises and received two stitches to his face. The father was charged with simple assault.

Detective Lou Chatel said the boy will be charged as an adult and could face up to a year in jail.
This grown man is getting simple battery for causing bodily injury to a minor, while the minor is being charged as an adult for sex with another minor. This will probably brand him for life as a sex offender.
