No...he vandalized some cars, IIRC. I think he & a Brit did that. The chewing gum thing was an example of how strict they were at the time.

Look- if the authorites in Singapore change their mind about Miss Low's sentencing and decide to outsource some for of corporal punishment...like an over-the-knee spanking for instance...they can get in touch with me via my blog.

Just put that post about Miss Singapore on another site. While Singapore is a US ally and has great relations with other Western nations, I do urge you to look at how elections are conducted there and how dissidents are treated.

Every month or so, some well-meaning Canadian journalist writes about this up-and-coming hockey star in Toronto named Nazem Kadri, the writer points out that the National Hockey League (NHL) is apparently quite happy to show its "diversity" since white people dominate the sport.

Erin Anderssen (who may or may not enjoy the game of hockey) is the latest of these inspired journalists. Writing in Saturday's Globe and Mail she says:

They don't speak much English – Sam's father refers to the penalty box as habis, Arabic for jail – but having arrived almost empty-handed 40 years ago from Lebanon, where they'd never heard of hockey, they understand the feat their grandson has achieved. They don't miss a game.

Abbas given 'life sentence' in Gazan trial

A Palestinian "court" in the Gaza Strip on Monday found Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas guilty of high treason and sentenced him to life in prison.

Abbas was convicted because of his decision to withdraw a resolution to the UN Human Rights Council concerning the findings of the Goldstone fact-finding mission into Operation Cast Lead.

[...] As a certain great American patriot said of another seeming international bumbler, if he were just stupid, the laws of probability would result in his being right every now and then.

(The seeming international bumbler was George C. Marshall; the great American patriot was Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. As for who most memorably called the unfairly vilified McCarthy a great American patriot, that was Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts.)

"When a child looks at a bird, he looks at its splendid colours, the texture of its feathers, its surprised movements, its cooing and the whole spectrum of events delights him. Then comes along Father who must intervene in the son's own interests and tell him that this is a robin, that is a swallow and that he had better know the difference." -J. Krishnamurti

A displeasing aura of vanity and authoritarianism pervades the uncivil, daily dead-end discourse. Increasingly it seems, truth is masked in myriad lies, political ideologies beget fascism, religions are warped and practiced to advance the agendas of ignorance and hate, and lunacy and suffering are displacing common sense and charity. Given humankind’s proclivity toward violence, it is foolishly dangerous to feed the rancorous atmosphere, and we should recognize the insanity of repetitively indulging in pointless, polarizing behavior. Lost and engaged in the ceaseless social/political fray, we should set aside our evil nature and seek the higher, healing stream of lovingkindness that clears our heads. Only by absorbing what is good and true, allowing ourselves to receive all we can hold, and then reflecting it in every thought and action, may we overcome the irrational doctrines of those who play poisonous games in the twilight - feigning virtue and disguising vice. Finally, empowered by positive effort, we jump on the scale of life, tipping it away from the darkness toward the light. When will humankind reject the hopeless spiral of debasement it has chosen and accept the elevating power of Love as its salvation?

"Our salvation from all evil lies in separating the sin from man's true selfhood, and in condemning the sin but not the man." -C.W. Chadwick

To elevate humanity’s collective thought toward the eternal plane of spiritual consciousness – absolute Love - should be the primary purpose of our every endeavor. The paradox is that we are endowed with God's gift of pure sanity, but surrender to the "Adam-dream," which enfolds all earthly discord. Sleeping on, we lose the reason of our existence in a world of chaos we create. While promulgating hatred and division by word and by deed, we futilely attempt to recover everlasting clarity of mind, which we abandoned for a transitory animation in an electromagnetically charged shell of foam. That is the reality of our mortal existence - delivered into corporeality - drenched, screaming, fists clenched, hungering for battle. When we awake, we are able to rise above the falsehoods, sweep away our shadows and addictions, find peace, unclench and embrace the constant remembrance of God.

“And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." -John 1:5

The Little Green Football is not a perfect sphere, yet a positive vibe mostly flows from here. And people may not like it, and kick you and call you crazy or worse, but when you are doing the best you can to enlighten, you are on the righteous track. Today is a new day. Awaken and lift your mind into the dance. End the polarization; begin the elevation. Get back to the Garden and plant only seeds of goodness for all humanity, and revel in an existence bathed in the warm glow of Love.

"One-eyed men aren't really reigning
They just march in place until
Two-eyed men with mystery training
Finally feel the power fill
Three-eyed men are not complaining.
They can yo-yo where they will
They slip inside this house as they pass by." -Tommy Hall

With acrimony toward no man, I'm letting my hair down and just livin' on.

Tell me again how we're "wrong" in Honduras? We should have embraced the coup against an elected leader? Because he's a leftist leader? Or should we have been more forceful in standing up for that leaders rights? Seems like if anything we're not wrong, we're just waffling like crazy. Which I suppose is wrong.

As for Czecho and Poland, do you seriously think those missiles would have worked? And how would we like it if the Russians tried installing missiles in Cuba again or in Venezuela, right in our back yard? If the Czechs and Poles ever though we'd fry ourselves and the rest of the world for them, it's time they were disabused. And it was never about Iran. The missile scheme goes back to Reagan, for Pete's sake.

Iran Suicide Bomb: Senior Revolutionary Guard Commanders Killed In Iran Bomb

Top provincial prosecutor Mohammad Marzieh was quoted by the semi-official ISNA news agency as saying that a militant group from Iran's Sunni Muslim minority called Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, claimed responsibility.

The region in Iran's southeast has been the focus of violent attacks by Jundallah, which has waged a low-level insurgency in recent years. The group accuses Iran's Shiite-dominated government of persecution and has carried out attacks against the Revolutionary Guard and Shiite targets in the southeast.

re: #167 Ojoe

Well the USA helped kick the Japanese out of the Philippines, I suppose that was imperial, but you might ask a Filipino if it was a good idea to kick the Japanese out.

Umm, hello?

The Japanese occupation of the Philippines happened more than four decades after the American conquest.

The Philippine–American War was an armed military conflict between the Philippines and the United States, which arose from the struggle of the insurgent First Philippine Republic against United States annexation of the islands. The war was a continuation of the Philippine struggle for independence, following the Philippine Revolution, led by Emilio Aguinaldo and the Spanish-American War.

The struggle officially began on June 2, 1899, when the First Philippine Republic declared war against the United States and it officially ended on July 4, 1902, after Aguinaldo's surrender.However, remnants of the Katipunan and other resistance groups, such as the Pulajanes and the Moro, continued hostilities until June 15, 1913 (Battle of Bud Bagsak).

The war led to the establishment of the Anti-Imperialist League by Mark Twain, who staunchly opposed the war, as well as to writing of The White Man's Burden by Rudyard Kipling which is a poem about colonialism. In its aftermath, the war would change the cultural landscape of the islands with the introduction of the English language, the disestablishment of the Catholic Church, and the impact of an estimated 200,000-1,500,000 casualties.

But of course, America Is Not An Empire.

I have a loved one who has been out of work now for almost 2 years. He's a highly certified IT pro, raising his son alone since the boys' mother passed away. Years of diligent saving and unemployment has made it possible for them to survive this long without dad working, but it's come down to the wire now and he's faced with having to abandon his career for a low wage job so that they can survive, if he can even find one. It's a very difficut time for them.

The "pacification" of the early 1900s was a bad thing, mind. Curiously, the American legacy here could be regarded differently and in some aspects even more positively from other former colonies in the region. We even gained our proper independence in '46 rather peacefully, though many features of American influence remained well into the Cold War.

Just a bit of information, something that your loved one may or may not know, but he may want to approach the low paying job search withe the understanding that that market is as tight as the IT market, even more so.

I am technically competing against my step daughter, who has been looking for the same sort of work for 3 months, and has not found anything.

What? You're clearly not "apologizing" for Presidents, you're evaluating specific actions. The alternative is glossing over mistakes or rewriting history to fit the narrative of "never wrong" - a common source for the stereotypical arrogant American image.
I see being able to honestly evaluate history as more important than sticking to the mythology, nevermind if the evaluations of history differ. Don't we get a better insight into the minds of presidents and elected officials who dare give their view of events, rather than spouting platitudes?
This reminds me a bit about people talking about american exceptionalism as if back-patting was somehow superior to a critical examination of policy.

As for using history as a means to escape action and responsibility (e.g. bushdidit), I agree with you.

---

The first direct stimulus reports showed that stimulus contracts saved or created just 30,083 jobs, prompting more Republican criticism of the $787 billion package.

The data posted Thursday was the result of the government's initial attempt at counting actual stimulus jobs. Obama administration officials stressed that data was partial -- it represented just $16 billion out of the $339 billion awarded -- but they said it exceeded their projections.

I am able to love my God

"Let me light my lamp", says the star, "And never debate if it

Many have sought the meaning of Thy Truth
And they are great;

While God waits for His temple to be built of love,
men bring stones.

When death comes and whispers to me,
"Thy days are ended,"
let me say to him, "I have lived in love

As long as our government insists on vilifying private industry (especially the insurance industry) and as long as we assume the government can save us -- all while killing-off private sector employers and jobs, the employment situation will go from bad to worse.

So we were surprised when TPM Reader JG let us know that last night McKalip resurfaced as an expert on health care reform for none other than Glenn Beck at Beck's town hall style meeting to discuss the horrors of reform.

Candidate's Unique Business Cred: Sex-Toy Sales

TRENTON, N.J. — A lot of small business owners run for the Legislature, but one New Jersey candidate can tout a unique entrepreneurial experience: hosting sex-toy parties.

Stepfanie Velez-Gentry is the owner of Nookie Parties LLC. She makes a living organizing parties for women and couples where she sells sex toys, lotions, games, lingerie and other erotic items.

"It's kind of like a Tupperware party, but with adult novelties," the 29-year-old mother of two explained.

Or, as her Web site puts it, "For parties you will always remember and nights you will never forget."

"We enhance people's romances and make people happy. It's wonderful," she said. "It makes the moms and dads happy, and then everyone is happy."

Velez-Gentry, a Republican from Bellmawr, is running for State Assembly. She started the company in 2007 as a way to help support her family in a tough economy. She said she works with more than 200 people nationwide to set up the parties.

"My husband is a printer. He's in fear of losing his job," she said. "We're just like everyone else, we live paycheck to paycheck."

She is vying for one of two open seat in District 5, which includes Camden and a stretch of middle-class Philadelphia suburbs. Most Republicans view the district as the safest in the state for Democrats, and her two opponents — Donald Norcross, the brother of South Jersey power broker George Norcross, and Camden City Council President Angel Fuentes — are well known.

Velez-Gentry said the parties have been a great way to meet voters and network. She said she always lets party participants know that she's running for state office.

re: #279 Dark_Falcon

Their actions are evil, and they may well send the people committing to Hell unless repented, but the people committing them are often not intrinsically evil, just foolishly defending evil.

That is how evil spreads in a society. It gets redefined. Special cases after special cases are made to justify the evil acts - and perhaps in isolated incidents, crossing the line was justified in a sober analysis. But the great mass of people don't do the sober analysis. They simply want vengeance and a traget for their hatreds and anger. For some it is a sort of morbid entertainment.

Those types get used to it. They come to crave it.

Then the boundaries of what is acceptable get pushed a little more and the practices of the society get a little more harsh and unreasonable in general. Then the cycle repeats. The oft over used slippery slope argument is not false. It too has lost meaning from sloppy over use.

It is not racist to "question" Obama on his religion or birthplace -> it is not racist to think that black people are taking over America illegitimately -> and imposing their will on you -> to do hateful things that you might do to them if you could -> to being a frothing paranoid racist.

There is a similar argument to be made about the torture debate. It is not just my opinion. My opinion on military matters is of very limited value. However, it was the opinion of great military men (and the OSS) not to torture, because they determined that it does not work and that it ultimately causes more deaths.

On a moral level, it somehow becomes OK, for Americans to ship people to Syria to have their fingernails ripped out with pliers and their genitals mutilated. Where does it go from there? These are the very things I was always taught made America better, because we did not do them.

Funny how the same people that decry bonuses are the ones complaining that corporations don't pay enough percentage of health care insurance

Both bonuses and insurance, (as well as company cars and the like ) are PERKS,,, There is no mandate that companies even offer Health Ins, let alone pay the majority of the premiums. This all started in the late 40's (iiirc) when there were (wait for it) Government mandated salary constraints. Companies used Health Insurance, bonuses et al to lure better employees because all companies had to "pay" the same in certain industries

One actually has nothing to do with the other

As HOOSIER stated, a company gives out bonuses when they make a profit. Making a profit does not necessarily mean they have more jobs available. The profit they made was for the last quarter(s) under the work force they have at that time. Increasing the work force for no discernable reason other than they made more money is a recipe for even MORE losses in the future

Yes how? And not that the female form is bad, for God never creates anything bad. But it is to view with appreciation and respect, naked or clothed.

Update: Secret Service strained as leaders face more threats

The Secret Service is tracking a far broader range of possible threats to the nation’s leaders, the officials said, even as it also investigates financial crimes such as counterfeiting as part of its original mandate.

The new demands are leading some officials, both inside and outside the agency, to raise the possibility of the service curtailing or dropping its role in fighting financial crime to focus more on protecting leaders and their families from assassination attempts and thwarting terrorist plots aimed at high-profile events.
...
Already, there are signs of strain on the agency, officials said. Budget documents submitted to Congress this year said the agency lacks the necessary technology to keep up with threats.

“The network and mainframe system used today struggles to support basic operations,’’ the agency said, requesting an additional $33 million over last year for computers and other information technology.

Asked about the concerns, Special Agent Edwin Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman, said that though “there is no doubt the protection mission has grown,’’ the agency can still fulfill both its missions.

He's really pervy. I'm far from being prude but he does have a lot of sexual content that even gives me the creeps.

re: #314 sattv4u2

One actually has nothing to do with the other

As HOOSIER stated, a company gives out bonuses when they make a profit. Making a profit does not necessarily mean they have more jobs available. The profit they made was for the last quarter(s) under the work force they have at that time. Increasing the work force for no discernable reason other than they made more money is a recipe for even MORE losses in the future

Goldman is engaging in the same kind of business as before the crash.This is not real money. This is not good news for anyone except Goldman executives. They paid back their bailout money to get away from government scrutiny. The free market is great and tra la la, but not when banks are steering us for another crash. They can't help themselves. And the Goldman-Obama connection is disgusting. He should be ashamed.

I was in the same spot and I think it was your checking out that got me to stop before getting really bad (and I was too bad as it was.) Far too much anger to think clearly.

My apologies to any I offended last night, that was not my intent but it certainly ended up being my result.

So the Rio police plug a bunch of innocent men, women and children while looking to take out drug gang members in the favelas.

Will we see a U.N. Commission report accusing the cops of war crimes?

I think the fine for a class-three misdemeanor won't amount to much. The damages, though, could be significant. Shutting down a major international airport even for half an hour is no joke.

And the Heenes' real punishment is going to be their enshrinement in the Urban Dictionary as an internet noun, verb, adjective and expletive.

NO, I do not own one of those things!
As to your other question, I have no clue. I have enough trouble walking around without falling WITHOUT wearing a snuggie.

Also I cannot figure out why anyone would want to embarrass their dog. Embarrass yourself all you want, imo, but leave your dog alone!

Embarrassing pets
