Teacher to Return After Having Sex Change

Did he/she actually pay for surgery. I don’t have any problem with sex changes. It is a personal decision.

But this picture just kills me. Call me bad, call me evil, but this picture is begging for commentary.

On a different note one of my college professors had a sex change, but that is a story for a different day.

Pakistani Kids Rally Over Prophet Cartoons

I have to comment on this.

KARACHI, Pakistan – About 5,000 children chanting “Hang those who insulted the prophet” rallied in Pakistan’s largest city on Tuesday in the latest protest in the Islamic nation against the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.The children, ages 8 to 12, burned a coffin draped in U.S., Israeli and Danish flags at a traffic intersection in the port city of Karachi as police in riot gear looked on.

Is there anyone out there who believes that these children were not directed by adults to engage in this protest. Is there anyone out there who wonders what kind of tolerance is being taught to these children. Is there anyone out there who wonders why US and Israeli flags are included at a rally to protest Danish cartoons.

“The rally was organized by Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan’s largest Islamic group. The children, some wearing school uniforms and headbands emblazoned with “God is great,” were released from schools to take part.”

Don’t misunderstand. The people who are organizing these protests are very intelligent and following a plan.

“Jamaat-e-Islami is part of a radical coalition of six Islamic parties that has rallied Muslims throughout Pakistan in recent weeks against the cartoons despite bans on protests in some cities.

Opposition lawmaker Liaqat Baluch, deputy secretary-general of the coalition, on Tuesday welcomed the European Union’s first statement on the controversy.

EU foreign ministers said Monday they regretted the cartoons were “considered offensive” by Muslims around the world after first appearing in a Danish newspaper in September.

But Baluch demanded an apology from Denmark, saying it “has not so far acknowledged its mistake.”

Baluch also said a “line should be drawn” between freedom of expression — the justification newspapers gave for reproducing the drawings, which Muslims consider blasphemous — and actions that offend cultural sensitivities.

“A freedom of expression that destroys world peace is against basic human rights,” he said.”

I have had enough of this. I am up to here with these comments and the crocodile tears. Until they get their own house in order I haven’t a thing to say to them about this. The Pak Tribune links to David Duke. Should I start stockpiling logs and lighter fluid. They have a number of cartoons that I find offensive, should I grab my friends and start running amok in the streets.

This is just so hypocritical.

Monday’s Roundup- The Apprentice Edition

Ok, I am not really in the mood to do a traditional roundup so I am going to take the lazy way out. The best post of today is about the Supermarket. Read it, love it and live it. There is a pop quiz followed by a mother test at 5.

There were about seven posts. More to come in the coming days and following hours, whatever that means.

Speaking about The Apprentice, is it just me or do they go out of their way to find some really weird people who they are certain will not fit in. There are always a couple of them.
