There’s A Reason Why It’s Called FACEbook

Posted by redsatellite on January 7, 2009

I work for a company that has all the advantages of technology. There are more mega computers, laser printers, cutting edge software applications, handy hardware accessories, and whizbang gadgets….than you can shake a light pen at.

So yes, I’m more than familiar with the latest cool programs and hip tools to use- Skype, IPhones, IPods, IMs, Tweeters, MySpaces, DVB, Wireless this….3D that….the list is endless. And then there’s…

Facebook.

And apparently, I don’t get it. Yes, I have a Facebook PROFILE. People have added me to theirs and I’ve added them to mine. All in the name of formal and informal ‘networking’ and ‘friendship’ and kinship’. No big deal. Yes my friends, there are lots and lots of pictures of FACES in Facebook.

But evidently, people aren’t content with networking using their ‘faces’. Sure enough, there are people who would rather put anything BUT their faces on Facebook.

On Dec. 27, some 11,000 protesters held a virtual nurse-in by uploading breast-feeding photos onto their Facebook profiles, and 20 or so women showed up at the company’s headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., to breast-feed there. By Dec. 30, more than 85,000 members had joined a Facebook group called “Hey, Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene!”

Ahem…um….look ladies- I’m ALL FOR breasts- I am. In fact, trust me, I’m quite fond of them.

The group, founded by San Diego mom Kelli Roman, urges Facebook to change its obscenity policy. “We expect you to realize that nursing moms everywhere have a right to show pictures of their babies eating, just like bottle-fed babies have a right to be seen,” their petition reads. “In an effort to appease the closed-minded, you are only serving to be detrimental to babies, women, and society.”

But there’s a time and place for everything. Exactly…WHAT is the big deal? There are countless places to show your breasts other than Facebook…if you feel so inclined. In fact, you can build a Blog or a Website and upload an endless stream of photos showing your breasts online if you want. Not good enough? Then shotgun a hyperlink or imbed a picture vis-a-vis an email to thousands of friends- so that they too- can enjoy seeing you breastfeeding your baby.

Heck…SEND ME A PHOTO. I’ll be glad to give you my email address. But for goodness sake, give Facebook a break.

Places Everyone…it’s Shoe Time!

Posted by redsatellite on December 16, 2008

By now, you and countless millions have seen the video. You’ve seen President Bush deftly duck a size 10 shoe being thrown at him, not once- but TWICE. Evidently, an irate Iraqi journalist called him a dog and began hurling insults along with his shoes.

The brother of the journalist now famous for hurling his shoes at President Bush said his sibling’s actions were “spontaneous” and represented millions of Iraqis who want to “humiliate the tyrant.”

Dhirgham al-Zaidi, who sometimes worked as his brother’s cameraman, described the reporter’s hatred for the “material American occupation” and the “moral Iranian occupation.”
All that makes for great TV, but you gotta admit- the guy looked and acted JUST LIKE all those unhinged liberal retards who attempt to interrupt speeches, and meetings, and hearings, and….and…oh heck…the list goes on and on. Admittedly, the two shoes weren’t PIES, but the intent was the same. I will say this…one thing is clear about liberals:

 

Throwing a tantrum and acting childish seems to be important to them.

Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang Bang Bang…In Bangkok

Posted by redsatellite on November 26, 2008

What the heck is going on in Thailand? I love this Buddhist country….I’ve been to this peaceful place…not once, but…TWICE. Four years ago, they were hit by a tsunami that wiped out Phuket. God Bless them….they managed to survive that. Then, murdering Muslims decided to amp up their discontent in the south.

And now this?

Flights into Thailand have been thrown into chaos Wednesday after explosions at two Bangkok airports wounded four people and triggered the closure of its main international gateway– a major hub in the region for travelers.The blasts come a day after thousands of anti-government protesters stormed the airports to protest the return of Thai Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat from the APEC summit in Peru.
Anti-government group People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) has accused his government of being a front for ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

A natural disaster- I get. Angry murdering Muslims- I understand. This?uh…not so much.

Pro- and anti-government protesters also exchanged gunfire, a Thai police official said. Protesters with golf clubs and long wooden sticks also clashed with airport taxi drivers, with each side throwing things at the other.

I’m in shock…I’m still trying to picture this. Trust me…this use to be a peaceful place.

Be Careful What You Wish For…

Posted by redsatellite on November 21, 2008

Well…poor little liberals…what ARE you going to do? You elected THE ONE. As in …the one and only. He’s now bought and paid for.

Antiwar groups and other liberal activists are increasingly concerned at signs that Barack Obama’s national security team will be dominated by appointees who favored the Iraq invasion and hold hawkish views on other important foreign policy issues.

The activists are uneasy not only about signs that both Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates could be in the Obama Cabinet, but at reports suggesting that several other short-list candidates for top security posts backed the decision to go to war.

Aww….cry me a Mekong Delta river. It’s horrible to wake up to the real world…..huh? Nothing like a steaming hot cup of REALITY.

Eco-terrorism loose in Seattle

Posted by redsatellite on March 3, 2008

You don’t have to go over to the Middle East to find terrorists. Nah. Although finding domestic ones in Seattle shouldn’t come as a shocker.

Crews battled fires early Monday at four multimillion-dollar show homes in a suburb north of Seattle, and a sign with the initials of a radical environmental group was found at the scene, an official said.The sign, which had the initials of the Earth Liberation Front, mocked claims the luxury homes on the “Street of Dreams” were environmentally friendly, according to video images of the sign aired by KING-TV.

Built Green? Nope black!” the sign said.

What the sign should’ve said is: Built with a brain? Nope, me neither!

A woman is currently trial in Tacoma for a suspected ELF fire at the University of Washington in 2001. Briana Waters, a 32-year-old violin teacher, is accused of serving as a lookout while her friends planted a devastating fire bomb.

A VIOLIN teacher? What in the name of Stradivarius is wrong with these people?

The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend

Posted by redsatellite on February 29, 2008

That’s how liberals think these days. The Iraq war is a perfect example.

Hundreds of anti-war activists attending a meeting here [London] on Thursday night were told that their activism was appreciated by the Lebanese Shi’ite group Hizballah.With the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq fast approaching, the British Stop the War Coalition is preparing for a massive demonstration in London on March 15.As part of the run-up, the coalition sponsored an evening with various speakers, including Ibrahim Moussawi, the editor of Al Intiqad, a Lebanese newspaper linked to Hizballah.In a short speech occasionally interrupted by applause and cheers, Moussawi told his audience that it was the support of the anti-war movement that kept Hizballah going during its brief war against Israel in 2006.

They appreciate everything you did and say you are partners in victory,” he said.

Let’s really….really…really…think about this for a moment- shall we? You hate being in a war so much, that you become a beacon of goodwill and a ‘PARTNER’ to a terrorist organization…who then sends a card-carrying member to THANK YOU?

This is how dysfunctional, their thought process is. Imagine British Jews hating the idea of Great Britain fighting in World War II so much that an SS thug stops by to THANK them for their support.

Lindsey German, one of the chief organizers of the coalition, defended her group’s decision to bring Moussawi to Britain, saying it supported anyone who stood against American “imperialism.”

I find this utterly astounding.

Things That Make Me Happy

Posted by zaphriel on May 30, 2006

People who get what they deserve…

Anti-War Protesters Pepper Sprayed at Port of Olympia


OLYMPIA, Washington — Police fired pepper spray as about 150 anti-war protesters tried to enter the Port of Olympia as part of ongoing demonstrations against the shipment of Army equipment to Iraq.

Protesters chanted “Out of Olympia, Out of Iraq” as they rocked a chain-link gate to the port late Monday, and at least three tried to use wooden boards to pry the gate open, The Olympian newspaper reported. …

Police and sheriff’s deputies clad in riot gear fired at least four rounds of pepper spray in an hour after asking the demonstrators several times to stop, authorities said. No one was arrested, but paramedics were dispatched to treat some activists.

And then they act surprised when someone takes action…

Dozens of demonstrators crouched in the port plaza, dousing each other’s eyes with water and offering slices of onion to soothe their throats.

“It burned. I couldn’t open my eyes for 20 minutes,” said Rachel Graham, among those hit. “My face is burning. I dunked my face in water and in Puget Sound.”

Lesson here…

Don’t try to break down a fence of a port or a military installation; it could be hazardous to your health.

Zaphriel Rallied FOR Immigration

Posted by zaphriel on April 17, 2006

I will be on flights all day today, so I reposted this post so you would have something worthwhile to read.

Yeah, that’s right, I, as well as Nevada Independant Conservatives, and Northern Nevada Protest Warriors, held a rally Saturday FOR Immigration…

PICT0074.JPG

LEGAL Immigration that is.

Carson City, NV –
It was a windy Saturday morning, when concerned citizens and activists alike joined to show their support for LEGAL immigration… In stark contrast to the Several Hundred High School Students that skipped classes to protest Immigration Reform last week.

Not surprisingly, even though the media was well informed of the event, no-one showed except one “Ahora” reporter… No cameras, no TV stations… nothing. Except lots of support from the community. The entire afternoon was a barrage of horns honking in support of the few hundred pro-LEGAL-immigration ralliers.

Gambling for Peace in Reno – A Comment

An Open Letter To Mr. Andrews (And All Other Peace Activists…)

Man that killed me not to say “Peaceniks“… But I want this to be a serious post…

Mr. Andrews,
As is our policy here, and because I have met you face to face, I will not attack you in this post, only your flawed argument. Remember this is solely my opinion.

The original Comment by Mr. Andrews can be found here… for brevities sake a I will only use selected quotes in this post, I have not edited these quotes in any way (except for length), and will attempt to not take them out of context.

DVC00154.JPG“you quoted me incorrectly… but you were close… i personally voted against the slogan that sierra interfaith came up with: support the troops, bring them home. … i argued that a truly antiwar statement wouldn’t include “support the troops” because that means support the war, which i don’t.”

Once again, Mr. Andrews, as in my originating Post, I commend you for being honest. One of my pet peeves about the anti-war movement is the inherent dishonesty in that statement.

” the only war i would have enlisted in was WWII, being Jewish.”

So Euro-Fascism is bad, because it threatened Jews. But Islamo-Fascism, is not worth fighting, even though it is now religious based Fascism, and it still threatens Jews, as well as any other religion that is not Islam. Read the rest of this entry »
