You Can’t Blame Obama!

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on September 25th, 2012

You can’t blame Obama! Not for anything that is currently go wrong in or for America or in the world at large. This is not to say that boy isn’t culpable for these; it’s just that is wrong for Americans to judge him for these things.

Because Obama’s Black, That’s Why!

An American has to remember the weight of history attached to holding Blacks accountable for their actions and inactions and how society’s previously have done so has disproportionately negatively impacted Blacks’ social and economic outcomes.

You can’t blame Obama even though you could and would blame a White POTUS for exactly the same things in exactly the same circumstances because it’s racist to hold a Black to the same standards of behavior and performance as a White. 😉

And This Makes Sense?

Posted in Politics, Society on September 24th, 2012

In New York City, as with essentially the entire country, school nurses can’t dispense even an aspirin without direct doctor’s order but now under the auspices of Connecting Adolescents To Comprehensive Health (CATCH) they can dispense both contraceptives and the Plan B abortificant to to minor girls without any form of parental consent or notification – and this makes sense?

Indeed, does it make any sense for the city to provide doctors to the schools to give these prescriptions to girls as young as fourteen when they don’t provide such services for any other sort of medical need, most of which would be far more legitimate than contraception and abortificants?

Deciding To Eat Bacon?

Posted in Food & Drink, Humor on September 22nd, 2012

The scientific method is both important and useful, and not just for those who make their rent money in academia. It’s also a solid basis for everyday decisions…

Should you or shouldn't you eat that bacon
Should You Eat That Bacon?

Should you or shouldn’t you eat that tasty bacon? Science lets you make an informed decision and provides a methodology for repeatable results – and believe me, repetition of the eating of bacon is a good thing. 😆
