Mind Boggling

From MK's blog, citing this source, comes this insane bit of news about what it takes to start up an online business in Greece:
...At the health department, they were told that all the shareholders of the company would have to provide chest X-rays, and, in the most surreal demand of all, stool samples....
Bureaucracy run amok. Literally into the muck.

(If you must have politics, please scroll down)

I have no idea as to any specific plans for this weekend of my 60th birthday.

But I know that Mr. AOW has been planning something and enlisting the assistance of some others. I've seen the log on his cell phone.

The Entitlement Mentality: Underage Drinking

Recently, Andrea McCarren, a reporter for WUSA, one of our local news channels, did a special report on underage drinking.

For a time, she withdrew herself from future appearances on camera because of the ensuing threats.

Obama Refuses To Budge

(A follow-up to this previous post. Settle in for one of my long posts)

According to this source:
Despite renewed statements of concern by Catholic leaders and lawmakers, the Obama administration is done negotiating and will finalize its plan requiring insurance companies to provide free contraception to women working and studying at religious institutions, President Obama’s chief of staff said Sunday....
What Obama has done is this: by forcing all insurance companies to provide contraception free of charge to insureds, these institutions, including hospitals, will have to (1) knuckle under, (2) stop providing any employer-based health insurance (They may not legally be able to do so), or (3) close their doors. Obama's mandate goes into effect on August 1, 2012.

Suppose you and I worked for one of these institutions? Would we stay as employees if there were no health insurance offered by our employer? Could we stay? Individual policies are expensive beyond belief and offer coverage more limited than that of group plans.

Happy Valentine's Day

Information about Nyac, one of the hand-holding otters in the video above:
...[O]ne of the last surviving sea otters from the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill[,] Nyac came to the Vancouver Aquarium in 1989 as one of the few young survivors of the oil spill. She not only survived the traumatic event, but she overcame incredible odds and became the only known survivor to have successfully had a pup. On November 9, 1993, Nyac gave birth to a healthy female pup, Kipnuk. This event was considered miraculous due to the internal damage she had sustained. During her 20 years of life, she won the hearts of members, visitors, volunteers and staff at the Vancouver Aquarium....

Racism

In the thread below, commenter Duck's Here pointed out that Peter Brimelow gave a speech at CPAC 2012. Brimelow has a reputation as a white supremacist.

White folks are not the only racists on the planet.

Indeed, Samuel L. Jackson a civil rights activist after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and today an actor and film producer, is a racist and very proud to say so.

Quote Of The Day

Possibly the quote of the century!

From commenter FreeThinke in THIS THREAD here at Always On Watch:

Sorry to have to be the one to say it, but Obama will win in November simply because he's so "cute." He has "charisma."

The average person doesn't know anything about "policy" and couldn't care less. Obama, whether YOU think so or not, has "Charisma."

Ever since the disaster of the Nixon-Kennedy debates, "Sex Appeal" has largely been the determining factor in American politics.

Most people do NOT think, do not KNOW, and do not CARE. They just FEEL.

If this were not true, why else do you think the Lie Factories of the Ad Industry have been so enormously successful?

The public has been deliberately "dumbed down" for the past hundred years. This has conditioned most of us to ACCEPT the ever growing amounts of [excrement] that gets forced down our throats every day.

We've been SEDUCED and then BRAINWASHED by crafty manipulators. There could be no other logical explanation for what has happened.
