Winnie The Pooh, John The Baptist, Tonsils, Appendix And Foreskin

By What do Winnie-the-Pooh and John the Baptist have in common? (For your answer, see footnote 1.)
What do the tonsils and appendix have in common? Cutting both the tonsils and appendixes out of children was high fashion in the 1950s and 1960s. If a child had a history of too many sore throats, tonsils and adenoids were removed. If a child had a sore abdomen, the appendix was removed. “If in doubt, cut it out.” Tonsils and appendixes usually were removed because they were considered to be diseased. Sometimes, however, they were removed to prevent them from becoming diseased. People figured nature had made a careless error when adding tonsils and appendix to an otherwise brilliant machine.
Then it was discovered that the tonsils and appendix have important functions. It was discovered that they contribute to the valuable human immune system. A huge number of children who are now adults lost important parts of their bodies due to lack of knowledge and wisdom on the part of the medical profession. Tonsils and appendixes are now removed only in severe medical conditions.
Nature was vindicated. Fashion changed and American doctors no longer routinely performed tonsillectomies and appendectomies. Good riddance!
In the Victorian age, when puritanical values ruled, people thought it was risqué to show an ankle and pornography was hard to come by. No good American dared to speak of the penis or its foreskin except in hushed tones to a medical doctor. Doctors claimed they had found the solution to masturbation. They then declared that masturbation was the cause of a plethora of diseases. They began a war on male and female genitalia—healthy genitalia.

The Social Justice Invasion Of Sci Fi - Badgerpod NerdCast

This week on badger pod nerd cast… the badgers discus the social justice invasion of science fiction and fantasy with special guest author John C. Wright
The social justice invasion
The SciFi fantasy genre has always been an interesting place. It is a place where stories new and old, weave tales that not only entertain, but teach us about ourselves as well as the world around us. It is a place of imagination where we can explore perspectives different from our own and view a portion of the universe in the eyes of another.

Sterilize The Poor & Unemployed - US Politician

"...If you want to reproduce, get a job!"

Feminists Say Video Games Are Sexist!

"...critics are concerned that gaming is a largely hetero-patriachal capitalist pursuit."
American Enterprise Institute: Are video games rife with sexism? And have you heard that most video gamers are now adult women—not teenage boys in the basement? A new study says so. Feminist tech writers have seized on the study as proof that the video industry has fallen behind the times: too many games, they say, perpetuate a culture of sexism and misogyny. 

When I took a look at the Entertainment Software Association study, I was a little surprised to find that yours truly, the Factual Feminist herself, counted as a gamer. I do not recall playing a video game since Pac-Man in a bar in Cambridge, Mass—in 1980.

Jewish War On Holy Russia

"It's a Jewish War on Holy Russia. America is just a bat in the hands of the Jews. Ukraine is another bat. Jews don't want peace. Ukraine is a failed state that's fuel for the fire stoking Jewish hatred of Russia. Why all this hate? There's a revival of the Orthodox church in Russia and it threatens Jewish plans... There is a war, it's a battle for the hearts of men!" Brother Nathanael

J4MB Publicly Challenges UK Radical Femi-Nazi MP, Home Secretary Theresa May

By : Theresa May, 58, was first elected as a (Conservative) Member of Parliament in the UK at the 1997 general election, the first of three consecutive elections won by the Labour party under Tony Blair. She’s spoken at the Fawcett Society – a radical feminist campaigning organization – about “promoting the cross-party issue of gender equality,” and was nominated as one of the Society’s “Inspiring Women of 2006.” She posed for a photograph wearing a Fawcett Society T-shirt bearing the logo, “This is what a feminist looks like” – here. Note the woman in the photograph next to Theresa May’s, in the top left hand corner – Tracey Emin, a talentless feminist ‘artist’ who holds the once-exalted position of Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy. What desperate times we live in. I included a link to the photograph of Ms Emin in my book Feminism: the ugly truth, in a chapter with the title:

Are some feminists (e.g. Tracey Emin) a pain in the arts?
I digress. When a Conservative-led coalition took power in 2010, Theresa May was promoted to one of the top political posts in the UK – Home Secretary. Tellingly, she also held the position of Minister for Women and Equalities. In 2012 the latter post was passed to a particularly incompetent minister, Maria Miller, who was forced by public opinion to resign from the cabinet in 2014 because she’d over-claimed expenses, which the general public believed to have been a deliberate act of fraud.

The FBI Unveils Its Orwellian Facial Recognition Database With 52 Million Photos To Be Stored

By Michael Krieger: In April of this year, I highlighted the FBI’s disturbing and Orwellian plan to launch a massive biometric database known as the Next Generation Identification (NGI) System in the post, FBI Plans to Have 52 Million Photos in Facial Recognition Database by 2015. In that piece I noted that:
The latest article from the EFF that caught my attention was published a couple of days ago, and shines light on the disturbing push by the FBI to create an extensive facial recognition database, which will include criminal and non-criminal photos alike. The information received by the EFF via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, demonstrates that the feds may have a mugshot database with up to 52 million photos by 2015.
The program is called Next Generation Identification (NGI), and the aspect of it that bothers the EFF most is the fact that non-criminal and criminal photos will be combined in the same database. So someone who has no criminal record can suddenly be flagged as a suspect just because an algorithm says so. What’s worst, research shows that the potential for false positive identification increases as the dataset increases.
