A Fine Reprisal (NSFW)

Posted in Humor, Politics, Religion, Society on April 24th, 2010

It seems that Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi’s recent screed about how women not wearing the hijab, jilbab, and abaya causes disasters such as earthquakes resonated poorly with many women in the Civilized World. One of these outraged women, Jennifer McCreight, a double major in genetics and evolution at Purdue University, has come up with a fine test of the Islamist’s theory and an equally fine reprisal against him and his misogynistic prudery. She calls it Boobquake.

Boobquake! April 27, 2010 Flaunt It For ScienceOn Monday, April 26, 2010, Ms. McCreight and tens of thousands of other women have pledged to put Sedighi’s claims to the test. They will wear their most cleavage revealing tops – alternately their shortest skirts, dresses, or shorts in the case of some of the bootylicious attendees – and see if doing so causes an earthquake.

From the Journal & Courier:

A Purdue University student is asking women around the world Monday to show a little cleavage, or some short shorts, as a humorous test to disprove an Iranian cleric’s theory that immodest dress has the power to make the Earth shake.

She calls it “boobquake,” and it has become an Internet and international sensation in just a few days.

Jennifer McCreight, a double major in genetics and evolution, was incredulous when she read news reports Monday that Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi said promiscuous women were responsible for earthquakes.

This seems to me to be a wonderful idea. Not only is it a stinging reprisal against Sedighi’s – and Islam’s – attitude about the form and flesh of women, it’s an interesting method of scientifically testing and refuting the Islamist’s claims.

In The Name Of Science, I Offer My Boobs

Weapons Of Mass Destruction Or Delight?

This is definitely the sort of protest and science experiment that I want to observe because, even if it’s ineffective, it’s still a beautiful thing. However, while the above women suit my tastes in cleavage displays, Ms. McCreight’s sensitivities and preferences are somewhat different.

I also hate the ideal of “big boobs are always better!” The cleavage joke was just a result of me personally having cleavage, and that being my choice of immodesty. And I thought “boobquake” just sounded funny.

A quick clarification about Boobquake

And Ms. McCreight has a solid point in her opinion. Bigger is not always better, or at least not a hard and fast necessity for beauty or sexiness. Certainly not being particularly busty is no barrier at all to displaying the sort of immodesty that Ms. McCreight needs for he study and that the Islamists hate and fear so much.

Smaller Caliber Weapons

Much as I said to the women of Iran in an earlier post, let the beauty of your flesh, the flash of your eyes, and promise of your hips set the very earth to quivering with joy. ­čśë

Do You Have A Permit?

Posted in Humor, Politics, The Environment on April 24th, 2010

With ObamaCare being imposed upon the American people by President Obama and cabal of Liberals in Congress be assured that they will soon turn their destructive eyes back to Cap & Trade and punitive regulation of the energy sector of the American economy.

If they manage to pass some variant of the traitors, Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D-CA) and Rep. Edward Markey’s American Clean Energy Security Act, America’s economy – especially at the average consumer level – is going to be horribly harmed, possibly beyond the point of recovery.

That is the point of their exercise and to be expected; you can’t fundamentally change America without first destroying all that it is.

But President Obama’s and his Liberals’ Cap & Trade scheme, like almost all man-caused disasters, would not be without its humorous side.

I can just picture some goon  from the government trying to regulate a volcano
Do You Have A Permit For Those Emissions, Buster?

Can’t you just picture this happening? The insectile mindlessness and regimen of the average bureaucrat and their enforcers combined with the hubris and narcissism of Obama’s regime makes such a ludicrous scenario almost assured.

After all, if one is beset by such arrogance that one believes that he can fundamentally change the very planet Earth, it’s a small step to deciding to regulate it. ­čśë

Peaceful Uses?

Posted in Politics on April 24th, 2010

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his hand puppet, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continue to purvey the lie that Iran’s nuclear program is for purely peaceful purposes.

The Islamist Vermin In Iran Keep Claiming Their Nuclear Program Is Peaceful
Really…It’s For Peaceful, Domestic Uses

It true though that Iran wants enriched uranium for power generation, heat, and light. It’s just political power and the heat and light generated by the nuclear destruction of Tel Aviv.

A Little Perspective

Posted in Philosophy, Society, The Environment on April 22nd, 2010

It’s World Earth Day 2010 and, as such, it’s a good day to truly think about the beauty, power, and majesty of our planet. This is a good time to cultivate a little perspective.

Let us all for a moment put aside our pride and hubris and look at the Earth and the stark, raw power She can bring to bear at any given moment.

Eyjafjallaj├Âkull Erupting

April 19, 2010 Eyjafjallaj├Âkull Volcano Erupting

Nothing short of our profligate use of our arsenal of nuclear weapons could hope to match the power and destructive force of the recent eruption of Eyjafjallaj├Âkull, which was a small and relatively mild volcanic eruption.

So when you hear people ranting or whining about Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) or how the Civilized World has caused massive and apocalyptic Climate Change via our CO2 emissions over the last handful of decades think about this picture and recognize that all of this hype is predicated upon people’s pride and hubris.

Love the Earth for she is fair and perilous beyond all of our means to measure. Just don’t delude yourself – or be deluded by other’s vanity or cynical manipulations – into being so confident that mankind can so easily fundamentally change Her so easily.

Shake It Dokhtar Ziba

Posted in Politics, Religion on April 20th, 2010

Some things are difficult to lend credence to, yet one has to accept that, not only do they happen, but that many ignorant and deluded fools will give weight to them. The temporary Friday prayer leader of Tehran’s recent screed is one of those odd and unhappy things.

Hojatoleslam Kazem Seddighi - Hates the beauty of women, thinks they cause adultery, and believes they'll cause an earthquake to destroy TehranA senior Iranian “cleric” says women who wear immodest clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes.

This Hujjat al-Islam – authority on Islam – believes that women not wearing the hijab, jilbab, and abaya causes disasters because it lures men into adultery and draws Allah’s wrath, which in fault-ridden Tehran would mean earthquakes.

Yes, on Friday, April 16, 2010 Hojatoleslam Kazem Seddighi stood in front of a large crowd in Tehran, equated less than head-to-foot covering clothing with promiscuity, said the women led young men astray and into adultery, and claimed these women would cause an earthquake to destroy Iran’s capital, Tehran.

More from the BBC:

Promiscuous women are responsible for earthquakes, a senior Iranian cleric has said.

Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi told worshipers in Tehran last Friday that they had to stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves.

“Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes,” he said.

Tens of thousands of people have died in Iran earthquakes in the last decade.

Mr Sedighi was delivering a sermon on the need for a “general repentance” by Iranians.

“What can we do to avoid being buried under the rubble? There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam’s moral codes,” he said.

He must really hate and probably fear these three Iranian women who were all born in Tehran but moved on the better things outside of the prudish and repressive regime of the Iranian ayatollahs.

Angylina Maftano

Aylar Dianati Lie
Shiva Bagheri

Iran’s loss is most definitely the world’s gain in the case of Angylina Maftano, Aylar Dianati Lie, Shiva Bagheri, and a great many other Farsi women. Hojatoleslam Kazem Seddighi may hate, loath, and fear the Divinely wrought beauty of the Persian women’s forms but I firmly believe that the Civilized World heartily disagrees with him and his misogynist, cowardly prudery.

To the Farsi women I say, shake it dokhtar ziba. Let the beauty of your flesh, the flash of your eyes, and promise of your hips set the very earth to quivering with joy. ­čśë
