Sex shop seeks retail space at San Francisco International Airport | The Sacramento Bee

Quote:
Nenna Joiner thinks a sex shop would be a perfect fit for San Francisco International Airport.

“When people get into an airport, and the plane is delayed, you got three or four hours to kill,” the owner of Oakland’s Feelmore Adult Gallery told the San Francisco Chronicle. “You’re going to need something. Not just a power cord – not just a sandwich. You’re going to need a vibrator, a condom, lubricant.”

Joiner says her proposed “pop-up” shop wouldn’t offer products banned by the Transportation Safety Administration, such as ropes or handcuffs, according to KGO.

And uh how do you imagine people are going to make use of those things in the middle of a crowded airport terminal?

Kris Kobach is Representing Himself in Voter Law Trial and Having All Sorts of Problems | Law & Crime

Quote:
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is in the middle of a legal battle over a state voter registration law requiring proof of citizenship. Rather than let the state’s Attorney General handle the heavy lifting, however, Kobach is opting to represent himself, along with a team of other attorneys in his office. Suffice to say, they’re having a rough go of it.
It's a brief read, but so very amusing. ^_^

Local News Anchors Now Have to Read Pro-Trump Propaganda

Quote:
A family of conservative multimillionaires owns Sinclair Broadcast Group. And Sinclair Broadcast Group is on the cusp of owning enough local television stations to reach 70 percent of American households. Every news station under Sinclair’s umbrella is required to syndicate commentary that comports with its owners’ ideological views. Over the past 13 months, this has meant regularly providing viewers with the insights of Sinclair’s chief political analyst, former Trump spokesman Boris Epshteyn. It has also meant featuring analysis from conservative pundit Mark Hyman, and updates from the “Terrorism Alert Desk” (sensationalized coverage of recent terror attacks from around the world) on a routine basis.

Now, Sinclair is taking its “covert state media” game to new, Orwellian heights: By the end of this month, Sinclair will require all of its local news anchors to condemn “national media outlets” for publishing “fake stories” and “using their platforms to push their own personal bias,” according to internal documents obtained by CNN. Those documents instruct local news directors to air these criticisms of “biased and false news” — criticisms that, of course, echo the president’s own — over and over again, so as “to create maximum reach and frequency.”

Yeah, good luck with that Sinclair. A lot of us stopped watching the news decades ago. What are you going to do? Strap us to our sofas and force us to watch? Fuck off with your bullshit and lies. We see right through your communist propaganda.

Tennessee GOP kill bill to ban child marriage | TheHill

The ever-respectable GOP sure loves old men marrying or otherwise engaging in sexual behavior with minors, especially if it means they can use the case in an attempt to overthrow that evil gay-loving Obergefell vs. Hodges case. Everyone knows that gayness leads to pedophilia, not old men marrying 13 yr olds and old wanna-be Senators engaging in sexual intercourse with 15 yr olds, right? THAT should be supported, but not the icky gay folks.

Quote:
State House Republicans in Tennessee on Wednesday effectively killed a bill to ban child marriages in an effort to bolster a conservative lawyer’s case against the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.

House Majority Leader Glen Casada (R) was convinced to send the bill to summer study in the House Civil Justice Subcommittee after an email from attorney David Fowler, a former state senator, The Tennessean reported on Wednesday.

Summer study is a place where bills often die before they return for debate, effectively killing the bill’s chances to be passed.
Quote:
Fowler’s email said he is preparing a lawsuit to counter the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage in the 2015 case of Obergefell v. Hodges.

Fowler is arguing that the Supreme Court’s ruling essentially nullified all Tennessee marriage licenses when it opened the spectrum of legal marriage beyond just between a man and a woman, The Tennessean reported.

If Tennessee were to ban child marriages by modifying state marriage law, lawmakers would be acknowledging the existence of same-sex marriage, according to Fowler’s legal theory.
Quote:
Fowler is the president of the Family Action Council of Tennessee, a Christian-based advocacy group against same-sex marriage.

"Basically, what has happened is the Family Action Council wants to continue to let 13-year-olds get married in the state at the sake of their court case against same-sex couples," Jernigan said.

Every single one of our local stations are owned by Sinclair.

Sinclair bought out local Fox stations and thr CW a few years ago. They now own like 5 of the 7 major non PBS broadcast stations.

I used to work for that Fox station too, but left long before the buy out.

If You Truly Care About Speech, You Will Invite Me to Your Office to Personally Call You a Dipshit
Quote:
Last weekend, the Lewis & Clark College chapter of the Federalist Society, the enormously influential legal arm of the conservative movement, invited contrarian political personality Christina Hoff Sommers to speak on campus. They did this mainly because they knew it would annoy or outrage liberal, left-wing, and feminist students, and some small number of them would ask the school to cancel the appearance or show up to protest it. All of that happened. Some students protested and heckled Sommers, footage of which was immediately made grist for the “free speech wars” mill.

Then, after the protesting and heckling, Sommers gave her talk, as scheduled, and took questions.

As you can clearly see, the entire incident was an egregious attack on free speech by dangerously illiberal student activists.

Bari Weiss, an editor for the Times opinion section, has written a column about the incident, arguing that these students, who asked that Sommers not address their school, then heckled and insulted her (as she insulted them), and then finally let her speak and engaged in dialogue with her, fundamentally don’t understand how “free speech” works.

“Yes,” Weiss says, “these future lawyers believe that free speech is acceptable only when it doesn’t offend them. Which is to say, they don’t believe in it at all.”

I couldn’t agree more: If you think offensive speech shouldn’t be aired in certain contexts and venues, you don’t believe in free speech. Which is why it is incumbent on Weiss, and her bosses, to ask me to come to the offices of the New York Times and give a talk to the editors and columnists of the opinion page about how stupid they are.

You know, funny thing, that: There's a wall where he tried to cross.

(Also funny thing: I had to use Edge to play that video. It refused to play in Chrome).
