Offensive & Politically Incorrect Advertising & Propaganda | Crestock.com Blog: “Glaring racism, violence, murder, misogynism and a lot of smoke – In this post, we have a look at various forms of ‘politically incorrect’ advertising and propaganda from the late 1800′s up until the present. The material of our present days might not be as overt as it used to, but it’s still about in droves, and sometimes with an even fouler smell to it.”
Local Honey to Treat Allergies – iVillage: “Eating Local Honey Can Prevent or Treat Seasonal Allergies
Sniffing or sneezing? Join the club: Seasonal allergies (aka allergic rhinitis) cause congestion, runny nose and itchy eyes for 35 million Americans from spring through fall. Learn the truth behind common allergy myths:
Truth: This myth probably originated because pollen causes allergies and there are miniscule amounts of pollen in honey; thus, people believe that eating honey can desensitize them to pollen over time. ‘The problem is that the pollens that cause allergies, which are primarily trees, grasses and weeds, are not the plants bees use for honey,’ says Maeve O’Connor, M.D., of Carolina Asthma and Allergy Center in Charlotte, NC. ‘If you like honey, eat it. But there’s no proof it will alleviate or prevent seasonal allergies.’

U.S. Grappling With Bedbugs, Misusing Dangerous Pesticides: “COLUMBUS, Ohio — A resurgence of bedbugs across the U.S. has homeowners and apartment dwellers taking desperate measures to eradicate the tenacious bloodsuckers, with some relying on dangerous outdoor pesticides and fly-by-night exterminators.
The problem has gotten so bad that the Environmental Protection Agency warned this month against the indoor use of chemicals meant for the outside. The agency also warned of an increase in pest control companies and others making ‘unrealistic promises of effectiveness or low cost.’”
MacDailyNews – Apple iPads takeover CNBC’s Fast Money set (with stills): “MacDailyNews reader ‘Joe Architect’ alerted us to flip on CNBC a few minutes ago and we noticed right away that Apple’s iPads have taken over the set on CNBC’s ‘Fast Money’ set. They may have been there for some time, but we just noticed them today”
- On July 12, Glenn Beck implied that the Obama government was going to aid the New Black Panther Party in starting a race war, with the ultimate aim of killing white babies. “They want a race war. We must be peaceful people. They are going to poke, and poke, and poke, and our government is going to stand by and let them do it.” He also said that “we must take the role of Martin Luther King, because I do not believe that Martin Luther King believed in, ‘Kill all white babies.’”
- CNN contributor and Redstate.com writer Erick Erickson, on the Panther mess: “Republican candidates nationwide should seize on this issue. The Democrats are giving a pass to radicals who advocate killing white kids in the name of racial justice and who try to block voters from the polls.”
- On July 6, the Washington Times columnist J. Christian Adams wrote an editorial insisting that “top [Obama] appointees have allowed and even encouraged race-based enforcement as either tacit or open policy,” marking one of what would become many assertions by commentators that the Obama administration was no longer interested in protecting the rights of white people. “The Bush Civil Rights Division was willing to protect all Americans from racial discrimination,” Adams wrote. “During the Obama years, the Holder years, only some Americans will be protected.”
- July 12: Rush Limbaugh says Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder “protect and represent” the New Black Panther party.
- July 28: Rush says Supreme Court decision on 1070 strips Arizonans of their rights to defend themselves against an “invasion”: “I guess the judge is saying it’s not in the public interest for Arizona to try to defend itself from an invasion. I don’t know how you look at this with any sort of common sense and come to the ruling this woman came to.” That same day, Rush says this: “Muslim terrorists are going to have a field day in Arizona. You cannot ask them where they’re from. You cannot even act like we know where they’re from. You cannot ask them for their papers. We can ask you for yours. Not them.”
- July 29: The Washington Times asks “Should Arizona Secede?” and says the Supreme Court “is unilaterally disarming the people of Arizona in the face of a dangerous enemy” with the aim of creating a “socialist superstate.” The paper writes: “The choice is becoming starkly apparent: devolution or dissolution.”
- July 29, Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy continues the Radio Rwanda theme, saying, “If the feds won’t protect the people and Governor Brewer can’t protect her citizens, what are the people of Arizona supposed to do?”
I’m beginning to wonder why effective boycotts against these hate-media channels, and particularlyFox, haven’t been organized yet. Why not just pick out one Fox advertiser at random and make an example out of it? How about Subaru and their unintentionally comic “Love” slogan? I actually like their cars, but what the fuck? How about Pep Boys and that annoying logo of theirs? Just to prove that it can be done, I’d like to see at least one firm get blown out of business as a consequence of financially supporting the network that is telling America that its black president wants to kill white babies. Isn’t that at least the first move here? It’s beginning to strike me that sitting by and doing nothing about this madness is not a terribly responsible way to behave.
The Moneyless Man: How Did Mark Boyle Spend A Year Without Spending A Dollar? (PHOTOS): “Not being able to buy pens or paper is quite hard when you like to write! Instead, Mark made his own paper out of mushrooms that he made into a pulp and dried. A US organization recently estimated that a 12 foot-high wall, running from New York to California could be erected using just one year’s waste paper from American offices.”

Brabus’s iBusiness is a Mercedes-Benz S600 tricked out Apple style: “We’ve seen the iPad implemented both at school and at work, but in your car? That’s the idea behind the iBusiness, a Mercedes-Benz S600 that’s been tricked out with Apple gear aplenty by Brabus.

The iPads can also control the car’s multimedia system, navigation systems, and the built-in telephone system.”

Secretly Monitor Employees Using Their Macs | Tips and Tricks | Mac360: “Andrew Grove, one of the founders of chip giant Intel, is credited with saying that ‘only the paranoid survive.’ Many in positions of authority believe it to be true.
If you have an office or school full or Macs, or just a family of Mac users, do you know what they’re doing on their Macs? Macs can be guarded with secret monitoring and recording apps that capture everything a user does on their Macs. Everything.”
These guns can’t kill you – they are ice cream » This Blog Rules | Why go elsewhere?: “At first glance it looks like they’re putting real guns in their mouths, but in real life they are eating edible ice guns.
They all have different kinds of flavors–cola, cherry, licorice and black currant. They are an addition to the first 50 tinted ice guns that Florian Jenett and Valentin Beinroth made and placed in downtown Frankfurt a few years ago.
These edible eatables where exhibited at an art show called ‘Freeze Revisited’, and their existence certainly shocked a lot of people.”

Former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman Comes Out: I’m Gay: “Mehlman arrived at this conclusion about his identity fairly recently, he said in an interview. He agreed to answer a reporter’s questions, he said, because, now in private life, he wants to become an advocate for gay marriage and anticipated that questions would be asked about his participation in a late-September fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), the group that supported the legal challenge to California’s ballot initiative against gay marriage, Proposition 8. ‘It’s taken me 43 years to get comfortable with this part of my life,’ Mehlman said. ‘Everybody has their own path to travel, their own journey, and for me, over the past few months, I’ve told my family, friends, former colleagues, and current colleagues, and they’ve been wonderful and supportive. The process has been something that’s made me a happier and better person. It’s something I wish I had done years ago.’”
Can you steal a few hairs from a racehorse and clone your own? – Holy Kaw!: “A successful cloning procedure would give you a genetic double of the target, minus the subject’s accumulated memories and learned responses. To make your fast, underhanded fortune in the cloning business, you’d need to find an established, high-paying market for genetic material. Look no farther than professional horseracing.
There’s an enormous amount of money to be made in breeding the next Triple Crown winner. Take 2000 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus for example. The racing stallion sold for a record $60 million following his win, and his genetic material is about as top-shelf as it gets. His stud fee is currently $150,000. That’s some pretty expensive semen.
But what if you could cut out the middlemen? By stealing a few hairs from a horse like Fusaichi Pegasus, couldn’t you do one better and simply produce the champion’s exact genetic double?”
Table Dancers Turn Tables, Show Up To Church To Protest Being Protested – The Consumerist: “The dancers at the Foxhole in Coschocton County, Ohio, are used to arriving at work to the sounds of protests from members of the nearby New Beginnings Ministries church. But the same couldn’t quite be said for the churchgoers, who showed up for services on Sunday and were greeted by the sight of bikini-clad protesters.”
“Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives… and to the ‘good life,’ whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.” ~Hunter S.
