Why Not?

Why not indeed?

A teenager from Russia has sold her virginity for less than $30,000, it is reported.

Teenagers from the West sell their virginity for a whole lot less.

Ignoring The Obvious

Lesbian Portia de Rossi:

Not coming out had a very negative effect on Portia's life. The actress battled different eating disorders while she was starring in Ally McBeal from 1998 to 2002, and she believes they were symptoms of her hiding her sexuality.

Or perhaps the eating disorders were symptoms of her general mental disorder.

It All Depends On How You Define Fascism

In Britain, the secular 'anti-fascists' say 'no to Islamaphobia':

'The crowd of anti-fascist protesters heavily outnumbered the BNP supporters. They held banners which read 'smash the BNP' and 'say no to Islamaphobia'.

In Turkey, the secular anti-fascists say 'no to Islam':

...crowds of protesters chanting 'unite against fascism' and 'government resign' marched towards Taksim, where hundreds were injured in clashes yesterday.

Oh Deery

Is the Herald Sun's Shannon Deery a work experience kid with no editorial supervision or a non-native English speaker on drugs (with no editorial supervision)?

FRIENDS of a man who strangled his wife before burying her in their backyard unknowingly helped him build a new deck to cover the body, a court has heard.
'Unknowingly helped him build a new deck'?

In the days following his wife disappeared....
'In the days following his wife disappeared's disappearance'.

Instead she had lay buried in the backyard...
'Instead she had lay lain buried in the backyard' or 'Instead she had lay buried in the backyard'.

...covered her body with concrete and then built a new decking on top of the site.
'...covered her body with concrete and then built a new decking on top of the site'.

He said friends of Ahmadi unknowingly helped him carry materials to the area.
Unknowingly helped him carry materials?

Do newspapers have sub-editors anymore?

No Comments Please, We're Gay

Australia's Courier Mail has not opened comments for this story:

A TOOWOOMBA doctor who has compared gay surrogacy to the Stolen Generations and claims "a gay person can stop being gay" has survived the LNP's vetting process and will stand as a candidate for Barnaby Joyce's Senate spot... Dr van Gend - who was vetted by the party's "applicant review committee" over the weekend - could prove to be the more controversial candidate. In June 2011, he wrote a column for The Courier-Mail comparing the Stolen Generations with what he called the "'gay stolen generation' of children forcibly deprived of a mother".
One wonders why?

Perhaps they don't want it pointing put that authorities are indeed exposing themselves and the public purse to abuse and 'stolen generation' style legal action by placing children with homosexuals:

A boy sexually abused by his adoptive father and his gay partner was labelled an ‘unruly child’ by social workers who ignored his complaints for years, a damning report has revealed. They sent Andy Cannon, now 23, back to the couple’s home despite his protests of abuse, praising the gay man who adopted him as a ‘very caring parent’.

The report accuses Wakefield social services, in Yorkshire, of ‘folly and gross misjudgment’. Mr Cannon, who was wrongly diagnosed with mental disorders and prescribed anti-psychotic drugs, believes he would have been listened to sooner if his adoptive father wasn’t gay. The case ended last year, after half a decade of legal wrangling, when a court ordered a £25,000 compensation payment to Mr Cannon.
And perhaps they also don't want readers asking the obvious question - if a heterosexual can stop being 'straight', why is it forbidden to suggest a homosexual can stop being 'gay'?

Can You Spot The Pattern?

Honestly, how dim have you got to be?

AUSTRALIA faces at least a decade of debt until the billions in borrowings under Labor can be wiped from the Budget books, according to economists.

Treasurer Wayne Swan declined to comment yesterday on when he thought the current $144 billion net debt level could be repaid...

The Howard government took 10 years to pay down the $96 billion net debt inherited from Labor in 1996.

Excited Journalist Reads Minds

Daily Telegraph journalist Phil Rothfield admits the Waterhouse-Singleton betting scandal story has got him all excited, injecting himself into the tale thus:

IT'S the biggest sporting stoush this writer has seen since the Super League war in the mid-90s.
Perhaps he needs to calm down a little.

Getting over-excited can lead to writing like this, a few paragraphs earlier:

(Channel 9 commentator Andrew Johns) said he didn't recall speaking to anyone but Singleton about More Joyous on the Saturday of the race.

His phone records showed otherwise. He'd in fact been in phone conversations with Hayson, former jockey Allan Robinson and Newcastle trainer Kris Lees.
And writing like that can get you sued.

Johns' phone records - unless all phone calls are being recorded by 'the authorities' now - show nothing 'otherwise' of the sort. That he shared phone calls with people does not indicate what they were talking about.

Legally, the journalist and his employer are teetering on the edge.

A teenage girl claims she was set up by BBC producers after unwittingly taking part in a documentary about bad driving.
Amy Smith, 18, said she was tricked into taking part after responding to an advert asking for ‘fun and confident groups of friends’.
The former private schoolgirl said she signed up believing it would be a reality TV series similar to ITV’s The Only Way Is Essex.

But to her horror, she was actually being filmed for a documentary about bad teenage driving - with cameras capturing her every mistake on the road. Her blunders will now be exposed in a series called Barely Legal Drivers, beginning tonight (April 2) on BBC3.
'Barely Legal'?

Given its culture, it's hardly surprising that the BBC borrows a phrase from the porn industry, a phrase with vaguely paedophile connotations.

Hating Your Way To Social Success

Conn Carroll warns of the next assault:

As the court was listening to oral arguments Wednesday, progressive blogger and former Pennsylvania State Democratic Committee member Chris Bowers wrote, "The step after victory in legal LGBT rights will be social ostricization of those who oppose it."
This is following the game play outlined by homosexual activists and marketing experts Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen in the 1980s.

Their book After The Ball was subject to review by another marketing expert, Paul Rondeau, whose paper on it is a must-read:

This comprehensive (12,000 words and 240 authoritative citations) work was first published in Regent University Law Review in 2002. It has since been cited before the Supreme Court of the United States, the United Nations, and in best selling books such as David Limbaugh's Persecution and David Kupelian's Marketing Evil. It has been translated and republished in Swedish, German, and Spanish.
More here (including a link to the Rondeau paper) and here from award winning journalist and author David Kupelian

The Rondeau paper has been mentioned in this blog many times before but it's never been more important to keep spreading access to it and making sure as many people as possible learn how they have been manipulated by some very clever marketing techniques that today are being recycled by others seeking to make fundamental changes to society.
