Teenage "Oppression" vs. Actual Oppression

From ACE

Teen girls are tired of being looked at sexually. To empower themselves, they are having crop top day to reveal more skin. That's not at all self-defeating.

Today is #CropTopDay, a movement started by a Toronto high school student named Alexi Halket. 
In an event page on Facebook, Halket wrote that a male teacher at Etobicoke School of the Arts complained that a shirt she was wearing one day looked “too much like a sports bra.” 
“I went in to the office and refused to change or cover up, and I was sent to the principal where we talked for over an hour and came to no conclusion except a threat that if I wore something like this again I would be called in to the office,” she wrote.
These are real fucking problem these girls have. I mean life and death shit. Not at all like that penny-ante shit ISIS is doing.

Remember, ISIS wrote this. They're proud of it. From ISIS's latest English language magazine, an article titled 'Slave-Girls' or Prostitutes'. Allegedly, written by a female ISIS supporter: 
The scholars of Sīrah mentioned that the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) took four slave-girls as concubines, two of them being Māriyah al-Qibtiyyah and Rayhānah an-Nadriyyah [Zād al-Ma’ād].

How proud is this ISIS supporter of the practice of slavery? This proud: 
I write this while the letters drip of pride.

Yes, O religions of kufr altogether, we have indeed raided and captured the kāfirah women, and drove them like sheep by the edge of the sword. And glory belongs to Allah, to His Messenger, and the believers, but the hypocrites do not know!

Oh, and this isn't some theoretical support for slavery. She has firsthand knowledge of it:

Saby (taking slaves through war) is a great prophetic Sunnah containing many divine wisdoms and religious benefits, regardless of whether or not the people are aware of this. The Sīrah is a witness to our Prophet’s (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) raiding of the kuffār. He would kill their men and enslave their children and women. The raids of the beloved Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) convey this to us....

Yes, Allah has opened the lands for His awliyā’, so they entered and dispersed within the lands, killing the fighters of the kuffār,capturing their women, and enslaving their children.

I and those with me at home prostrated to Allah in gratitude on the day the first slave-girl entered our home. Yes, we thanked our Lord for having let us live to the day we saw kufr humiliated and its banner destroyed.

Oh please stop with your slave shit. There are teenage girls in America who have to wear t-shirts! Jesus, (or Allah) get over yourselves.

Man I Hate Stuff

YouTube network-y stuff. So I did my best but could not get a live stream to work correctly. I really have no idea why but it wouldn't send the data correctly. The podcast did get recorded. Those of you who showed up, we are sorry. Technical issues suck.

Special Episode of Basement Conversations

A very special episode. Jim couldn't make it this week so we have a special guest! She asks Mark a lot of questions and exposes him as the horrible fraud he is.

Woman, make me a Sammich.

Gavin you almost had me. I think there is something to talking in generalities that a great many women aren't happy working but do it because of social pressure, not to mention a lazy ass or absent husband. They should know it's ok to be a housewife if they so choose. However, there are individual women who are plenty happy working and to specifically tell your sparring partner what she thinks and feels torpedoed your argument.

Fucking funny though.

War! What is it Good For? A Lot, Apparently.

Take the long view. The world of the Stone Age, for instance, was a rough place; 10,000 years ago, if someone used force to settle an argument, he or she faced few constraints. Killing was normally on a small scale, in homicides, vendettas and raids, but because populations were tiny, the steady drip of low-level killing took an appalling toll. By many estimates, 10 to 20 percent of all Stone Age humans died at the hands of other people. 
This puts the past 100 years in perspective. Since 1914, we have endured world wars, genocides and government-sponsored famines, not to mention civil strife, riots and murders. Altogether, we have killed a staggering 100 million to 200 million of our own kind. But over the century, about 10 billion lives were lived — which means that just 1 to 2 percent of the world’s population died violently. Those lucky enough to be born in the 20th century were on average 10 times less likely to come to a grisly end than those born in the Stone Age. And since 2000, the United Nations tells us, the risk of violent death has fallen even further, to 0.7 percent.
Most people fall into what Thomas Sowell called "stage 1 thinking." What he believed was that most people react to what is in front of them and never asked the question "And then what?"

When I was an undergraduate studying economics under Professor Arthur Smithies of Harvard, he asked me in class one day what policy I favored on a particular issue of the times. Since I had strong feelings on that issue, I proceeded to answer him with enthusiasm, explaining what beneficial consequences I expected from the policy I advocated.

“And then what will happen?” he asked.

The question caught me off guard. However, as I thought about it, it became clear that the situation I described would lead to other economic consequences, which I then began to consider and to spell out.

“And what will happen after that?” Professor Smithies asked.

As I analyzed how the further economic reactions to the policy would unfold, I began to realize that these reactions would lead to consequences much less desirable than those at the first stage, and I began to waver somewhat.

“And then what will happen?” Smithies persisted.

By now I was beginning to see that the economic reverberations of the policy I advocated were likely to be pretty disastrous — and, in fact, much worse than the initial situation that it was designed to improve.

Simple as this little exercise may sound, it goes further than most economic discussions about policies on a wide range of issues. Most thinking stops at stage one.
Most people look at war and see the deaths on the battlefield at that time, and little else. Hindsight has made us rethink some wars, especially WWII. Even Vietnam is being looked at more critically, with the realization that short term thinking made us lose a war we were actually winning.

I've always thought of war like surgery. Let's say your appendix or gall bladder needs to be removed. You are getting by. You are working but have pain. Eventually if you continue without surgery, you will probably die or at the very least, do a whole lot of damage to your body. But in the short term, you are doing reasonably ok. When you get surgery, you're down. You're laid up in the hospital. You have done new damage to your body that wasn't there before.

But you heal, you're back up in a few days, and you end up far better off in the long term than you were before. War is like that. We finished up WWII in less than 4 years, at for America. We didn't mess around and it got VERY messy. Hell we killed a ton of our own men in accidents. Tons of people died. But within a decade after the war, the Japanese were making Godzilla movies. Things were better very quickly.

Contrast that to the very constrained war we wage against terror. The press and the people were so very concerned with civilian and troop casualties. We had to run nearly every mission by a legal committee. It's going on 14 years and Islamic terror is as bad as ever. We are dragging this thing on instead of being definitive, decisive, and yes, dare I say it, indiscriminate regarding casualties. Maybe if we were a little more brutal, this thing might have been over years ago.

Maybe War, waged decisively and with purpose, can make things better in the long run, even for the losers. Ask Germany, Italy, and Japan.

Take Your Fascist Thought Control Somewhere Else

So Ted 2 is coming. Here's your trailer(NSFW):

Now having seen that on Aint it Cool a couple weeks back, I made a few dopey comments. It's funny to me. Stupid but funny. Keep in mind, this is a movie about a foul mouthed teddy bear that came to life and decided to smoke weed. It doesn't get more inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.

Here's my first comment:

Ummm ok. I can see where this is going. Later on he followed up other people who thought it was funny with this.

Ok. I could start in how blacks never got surgery to inflate their lips like trans people do. Or roll my eyes at the complete extreme it is go for the bigoted hate monger insult so quickly. But really, this is typical of SJW (Social Justice Warriors). This might be a trans gendered person but most likely a white suburban SJW with daddy issues.

To compare racism of 50 years ago to a couple of silly throw away jokes in a stoner teddy bear movie is totally insulting to those that actually fought that fight.

I don't care what people do with their lives as long as they don't fuck with my life. But FUCK YOU telling me what I should and shouldn't laugh at. FUCK YOU thought police! I will laugh at whatever I think is funny. Everyone else is fair game, what makes you think you should be exempt? Whiny fucking babies.
