I think I will start a weekly post that links to several insightful articles. After all I read quite a few each day, and would like to share them with you. Not just because they are good articles, but because this blog is in many ways about personal disclosure- so I certainly won’t go out of my way to hide my political interests. [BTW: As of now I am considered an unaffiliated voter since the state of N.C. no longer recognizes the Libertarian party].

Criminal Charges for Flushing the Koran

This would be ridiculous if it weren’t true. In a nation where it isn’t illegal to burn the flag, where one can submerge a cross in urine (and get a federal grant), apparently you can’t put a Koran in the toilet. Making matters worse, noted statist Bill O’Reilly approved of the criminal charges.

I presume Bill is supporting these charges in an effort to appear even handed, since at heart he would probably like to be able to prosecute people who submerge crosses in urine or paint the Virgin Mary using dung. But I ask, what about the freedom to offend? This kind of thing gets my blood boiling. I would take my bar (if I had a spare $3,000 and three months to study non-stop) just to take this case to court.

Stanislav Shmulevich, you have my complete support. While your actions may have been at the least tacky, at the worst they were offensive. And causing offense is NEVER illegal, it is at the core of protected speech.

Taking a trip through your Askimet spam folder is like taking a jaunt through the red light district of freakiness. I certainly don’t recommend it for the faint of heart or strict of morals. But if you do cruise your Askimet folder, you will never fail to find something shocking or disgusting. The world apparently has no shortage of nasty fetishes and weirdos willing to spam my (and your blog) with links.

These strange comments range from the mundane celebrity nudity claims [Beyonce’s Breasts, Lohan’s Crotch, etc.] to the especially freaky and downright contemptible and disgusting [pre-teen girls, pee drinking] and other things that send shivers of revulsion down your spine.

But one particular comment stands out. I received this comment about a month ago. [I have removed the offensive material]

I am presenting for your enjoyment a PowerPoint presentation on slavery I created last year for a course on teaching at the college level. Some of its contents might surprise you. Let me know what you think.

Most of all I want to know if you learned anything knew? Did it challenge anything you thought you knew? What do you think it was missing? Or anything else that might be on your mind.

Just click the below link/file.
