This is the male remake of the popular Youtube video, "Daft Bodies." The clever video features brothers King Julien and Jay performing to Daft Punk's 2001 hit, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, with the simplistic lyrics written all over their bodies. The video gets better as the pace of the music and lyrics speed up half-way through the performance.
The video was so popular that it was even spoofed on The Simpsons. ENJOY!
In the most undemocratic rant, Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka "Joe the Plumber," who is currently working as a war correspondent in Israel (yes, that's right...a WAR CORRESPONDENT), had this to say about freedom of the press:
"I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere (around) war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for ’em...I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, 'Well look at this atrocity,' well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it."
First of all, he says that journalists shouldn't be allowed near war, yet takes a position as a war correspondent. I'm confused. Second, how did this man become a correspondent? He cannot even string together a proper sentence in English. Third, what are his qualifications to hold such an important position? I think he first needs to re-visit a remedial U.S. History class to brush up on the Constitution -- particularly the First Amendment. Then he needs to re-visit a remedial English class. I have a seven-year old nephew who can tutor him. After that, he needs to brush up on his world history and current affairs. He has no right with such an important responsibility.
As reported from the Southern Voice, Al Sharpton calls out conservative faiths for their support of Proposition 8, while ignoring the more important problems of the world. The Baptist Minister and Civil Rights Activist had this to say:
“It amazes me when I looked at California and saw churches that had nothing to say about police brutality, nothing to say when a young black boy was shot while he was wearing police handcuffs, nothing to say when the they overturned affirmative action, nothing to say when people were being delegated into poverty, yet they were organizing and mobilizing to stop consenting adults from choosing their life partners.”
“There is something immoral and sick about using all of that power to not end brutality and poverty, but to break into people’s bedrooms and claim that God sent you.”
“We know you’re not preaching the Bible, because if you were preaching the Bible we would have heard from you,” Sharpton said. “We would have heard from you when people were starving in California, when they deregulated the economy and crashed Wall Street you had nothing to say. When [alleged Ponzi schemer Bernie] Madoff made off with the money, you had nothing to say. When Bush took us to war chasing weapons of mass destruction that weren’t there you had nothing to say. … But all of a sudden when Proposition 8 came out you had so much to say, but since you stepped in the rain, we gonna step in the rain with you.”
Think of all the good these intolerant churches could have done with all of the time and money they wasted removing people's civil rights. They largely ignore pain, poverty, hunger and other social issues to preach hate.
Is this what God wants you to do? I thought religion was about love and understanding, not hate and intolerance. You have been exposed.
Amazing how accurate this humorous ad is. Detroit thought it was invincible and didn't need to cater to what consumers needed and wanted. Detroit ignored the trend towards smaller, economical cars and continued to produce wasteful large cars, SUVs and trucks modeled after those used in the armed forces. Now the government is expected to bailout the Big Three. While I'm all for preserving the American Auto Industry, there need to be conditions on the bailout to protect the industry and the American people.
New Yorker cartoonist, Barry Blitt, who was behind the controversial cover depicting the Obamas as terrorists, creates yet another Obama cover. In this cover, Obama is carefully interviewing various breeds of dogs for "First Bitch."
Not a girlie-dog
Sounds like he wants a butch, gay dog. Or possibly a poodle in a flannel, I'm not sure.
I am proud that America took a great big step towards
equality by electing Barack Obama this week.But I am also saddened and disappointed by the backward steps taken by
the following states that wrote blatant discrimination into their
constitutions:Arkansas, where unmarried couples are now
prevented from adopting or fostering children; Florida and Arizona, where gay
marriage has been banned; and most notably, California, where a law allowing
gay marriage has been repealed, leaving the status of 20,000 marriages in
question.I was under the impression
that our constitution was created to protect our rights, not repeal them.
We currently live in a society where people are ignorantly
learning about civics in church and where law is being dictated by religion (namely
Christianity) with scripture passages arbitrarily chosen while ignoring others
that they, themselves, are clearly breaking.But not all homosexuals are Christian, so who are Christians to judge
and tell people what is right and what is wrong and what they can and cannot do
(Judge not, lest ye be judged), when not all share their
mistranslated beliefs?Orthodox Jews
cannot eat pork and cannot mix meats with cheeses.What if they rallied a majority to prohibit ham
and cheeseburgers, or worse, bacon cheeseburgers to protect their faith?The government plays no role in religion, so
why is religion so largely playing a role in our government?It is time to start governing our nation on
the ideas of the collective people and not the scripture of a single religion.
This is about rights and civil liberties:the right to marry, the right to employment non-discrimination, the right to hate crime protections, the right to fight for
country, and the right to feel like a citizen of this country and not a
second-hand citizen.Melissa Etheridge wrote
in The Daily Beast, that because 51% of voting Californians find her to be a
second-hand citizen, that she will no longer pay her state taxes.“I mean, that would just be wrong, to make
someone pay taxes and not give them the same rights, sounds sort of like that
taxation without representation thing in the history books,” she says.“When did it become okay to legislate
Although funny and meant in jest, I would also have to agree
with Margaret Cho, who once said, “We need to recognize that a government that
would deny a gay man the right to bridal registry, is a fascist state.”
