A Hot Spaghetti Western

Before I going any further with this, thanks need to be tendered to Cmblake6 for this video which I scarfed off of his blog.

Thank The Gods They’re Country Girls

OK, I’ve always been a fan of spaghetti westerns, but when a Italian band like the Village Girls releases “Thank God I’m A Country Girl” my enjoyment of the genre reaches whole new heights.

Fascist Precursor?

Big LaborYou hear the word fascism shouted out by Liberals and Progressives – and the “lamestream” media. It’s mostly used as a tired and dog-eared pejorative against Americans, who stand firmly against the anti-American and often race-based, Leftist ideology promulgated by these sorts.

The ironic part of this is that the Left are the ones supporting a historic Fascist precursor.

What these Leftists either conveniently forget or willfully ignore is the very simple fact that Fascism as a socio-economic model is firmly rooted upon Syndicalism, something that they rampantly and stridently endorse.

While Syndicalism may have started as Anarcho-Syndicalism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was a movement meant to destroy both the corporate structures and the State, this revolutionary movement was defeated and proven untenable. The State proved too necessary and too powerful to be supplanted in developed nations with strong interactions and agreements with other nations.

What rose up to replace Anarcho-Syndicalism was National Syndicalism, which sought to supplant or suborn the State actors while maintaining the original political framework of the nation.

This directly led to the rise of Labor Syndicates as power bases in European countries and the regimes of: Francisco Franco in Spain, Benito Mussolini in Italy, and finally Adolf Hitler in Germany.

Does this mean that the rise of labor unions and their entrenchment in the State always results in Fascism? No; of course not. It has, however, regularly, if not universally, done so in the past. Hence, the Liberals and Progressives are vociferously supporting the precursor behaviors of the very thing – Fascism – that they so often accuse Americans are supporting.

2010 World Cup!

The 2010 World Cup has started in South Africa. This means that for approximately the next month football – called soccer in the US – fans will be fixated upon the international competition, which happens only every fourth year, even more than they are normally riveted to the league play that they normally follow.

Thus, even more than usual, the world will for the next month be filled with bored and more than a little annoyed football widows – and not a few soccer widowers like myself.

But, even if you’re like me and have little or no interest in the game, there are some parts of the global phenomenon that is the 2010 World Cup that worth following. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Four Delicious Soccer WAGS

Soccer Babes From Sports Illustrated

That’s certainly worth following and I, for one, am certainly of fan of beautiful women wearing nothing but bodypaint, as previous posts prove. While I’m largely bored by futbol / football / soccer, I don’t think I could ever get bored with looking at beautiful women like: Abbey Clancy, Bethany Dempsey, Melissa Satta, and Sarah Brandner. I doubt that many men, even those like myself who are not fans of the sport, would do so.

Britain’s Busting Out

Union Jack Gloriously Unfurled The British ladies are busting out and throwing the world a set a curves.

It seems that a recent market study determined that the lovely ladies of England have the shapeliest breasts in the world, or at least of those on the far side of the Atlantic.

This was determined by a Bra Usage and Attitude Study performed by COIN, for lingerie manufacturer, Triumph International. While not truly global, the study did include China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the UK.

It’s certainly a titillating study and one that will garner a lot of well-deserved attention. It, however, has some interesting points for both the $30 billion per year global lingerie market and for societal views of body image.

Asylum UK distills the salient points:

Researchers have discovered that women in Britain have the most shapely bodies on the planet.

A recent global survey of breasts discovered the average British woman wears a size 34D bra — meaning she has bigger boobs and is more slender than most around the world.

Over in Germany and Italy women have a larger under-bra size of 38 inches and in France the average bra is 36B.

In Japan and China women are said to have the same 34 inch ribcage measurement as Brits, but this is again only paired with B cup boobs.

And while British women have an average of a 34D bra, the most common cup size is said to be a rather generous ‘DD’.

The Triumph international “Bra Usage and Attitude Study” also compared results to those from 50 years ago, finding that British woman’s chest and hips are now 4cm bigger.

If this continues it will mean that by 2060 the average UK bra size will be a gigantic F or G cup… how come they never mentioned that on Tomorrow’s World?

Obviously, despite the borders of the British Empire having contracted, it’s assets are still quite astounding and growing more so with the passing years. This and the finding of COIN’s study can be born out by empirical study of these delicious British lasses who all have DD cup sizes and whose underbreast measurements average to 34 inches:

Making Statistics Beautiful
Danielle lloyd, Gemma Atkinson, and Kelly Brook

Similarly, one can see from representative samples of women from China, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan that COIN’s study is certainly not too far off the mark.

Gu Chen, Noemie Lenoir, Janine Habeck,
Monica Bellucci, and Haruna Tabuki

Still, the British women, indisputably as fine as they are, shouldn’t gloat too much or become complacent. There are many, many roads to beauty and sexiness – and the study that Triumph International commissioned didn’t address the glories of women’s legs or butts.

These Curves Shouldn’t Be Overlooked

I hope that Triumph doesn’t make the mistake of ignoring their “bottom line” by focusing their efforts exclusively on the bra. That’s the sort of marketing mistake that could hurt them in “the end.” ๐Ÿ˜‰

~*~

While the pleasant and prurient aspects of the curvaceousness of British women and the size and shapeliness of their breasts is quite nice and a wonderful distraction, the COIN study on bra usage and attitude towards brassieres also presents some much more important data relating to manufacturing, marketing, and to women’s and societies’ body images as compared to objective reality.

They’re Born Bad

Back in June, 2009, scientists discovered the “gangsta gene,” now known as the monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) gene. People with a particular form of MAOA gene are twice as likely to join a gang or engage in other violent criminal behavior, compared to those with other forms of the gene.

The MAOA gene is located on the X chromosome, and the enzyme it produces breaks down important neurotransmitters such as: serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This renders them inactive. These neurotransmitters control mood, aggression, and pleasure.

Scientific research into the causation of self destructive and/or violently antisocial behavior is worthwhile. It had in the past been assumed that people turned to drugs, gangs, violence, and general thuggery solely due to environmental factors.  Discovering that some of the thugs were just “born bad,” or at least with a genetic predilection for bad behavior is extremely useful data; it allows society to level set its expectations.

A lot of Liberals in America won’t like these findings or this post. Oddly and hypocritically, they’re the same one lauding any study that says homosexuality is genetically caused.

Of course some people who look to provide and/or invent excuses for thuggishness and criminal behavior have misused these findings. Recently an Italian court reduced the sentence of a convicted murderer because he had this genetic deficiency.

Abdelmalek Bayout, an Algerian citizen who has lived in Italy since 1993, admitted in 2007 to stabbing and killing Walter Felipe Novoa Perez on 10 March. Perez, a Colombian living in Italy, had, according to Bayout’s testimony, insulted him over the kohl eye make-up the Algerian was wearing. Bayout, a Muslim, claims he wore the make-up for religious reasons.

During the trial, Bayout’s lawyer, Tania Cattarossi, asked the court to take into account that her client may have been mentally ill at the time of the murder. After considering three psychiatric reports, the judge, Paolo Alessio Vern์, partially agreed that Bayout’s psychiatric illness was a mitigating factor and sentenced him to 9 years and 2 months in prison — around three years less than Bayout would have received had he been deemed to be of sound mind.

But at an appeal hearing in May this year, Pier Valerio Reinotti, a judge of the Court of Appeal in Trieste, asked forensic scientists for a new independent psychiatric report to decide whether he should commute the sentence further.

For the new report, Pietro Pietrini, a molecular neuroscientist at Italy’s University of Pisa, and Giuseppe Sartori, a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Padova, conducted a series of tests and found abnormalities in brain-imaging scans and in five genes that have been linked to violent behaviour — including the gene encoding the neurotransmitter-metabolizing enzyme monoamine oxidase A (MAOA). A 2002 study led by Terrie Moffitt, a geneticist at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College, London, had found low levels of MAOA expression to be associated with aggressiveness and criminal conduct of young boys raised in abusive environments.

In the report, Pietrini and Sartori concluded that Bayout’s genes would make him more prone to behaving violently if provoked. “There’s increasing evidence that some genes together with a particular environmental insult may predispose people to certain behaviour,” says Pietrini.

On the basis of the genetic tests, Judge Reinotti docked a further year off the defendant’s sentence, arguing that the defendant’s genes “would make him particularly aggressive in stressful situations”. Giving his verdict, Reinotti said he had found the MAOA evidence particularly compelling.

Thankfully, this foolishness was perpetrated by an Italian court, not an American one so the wrong-headed precedent that it sets won’t immediately have an adverse effect upon the American court system. Sadly though, it’s only a matter of time before some Liberal judge in America reaches the same dangerous conclusion, most likely somewhere on the Left Coast. ๐Ÿ™

If these people are genetically deficient in such a way that they are far more prone to violent antisocial behavior, then releasing them back into society sooner is just wrong. It’s obvious to anyone with a brain that they’d be extremely prone to recidivism. Instead of using their mutation as an excuse for them, it should be grounds for lengthier incarceration and behavioral therapy.
