Thank God. For once Florida has gotten some sense. This was the law that required women who were giving babies up for adoption had to publish their sexual history in a local newspaper in case the father wants to protest the adoption. Again I say what made them think this was a good idea? Luckily logic prevailed and now adoptions can go on without humiliation.
You gotta love Japan. The Great Sasuke won a seat in the Iwate Prefectural Assembly. I’m not sure how that equates in American terms whether or not that’s the equivalent of Congress or just a state senate. Anyway, I think this is so cool. Not only is Sasuke in incredible wrestler but he ran for office with his mask still on….and won. And he still says that he’s not going to take his mask off even when the assembly is in session. How cool is that? Sometimes I wish life was more like professional wrestling. Mad at your boss? Hit him with a folding chair. Anyway, Sasuke is not the first pro wrestler to be in Japanese politics. If memory serves me correctly former Japanese legend Antonio Inoki was elected to a major office in Japan. I hope this starts a trend in America. Just think of it. Rey Mysterio and the Hurricane in ’04. I’d vote for them.
Cute play on words CNN has going on there. Anyway, 35 South Carolina high school students were suspended for wearing a t-shirt that shows chickens hatching from eggs decorated with the Confederate flag and says”Southern chicks, better than the rest”. The student interviewed by the AP said…
“I had no idea in the world anyone would be offended by this,”
Oh, I don’t know. How about Blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Catholics, and anyone else the Klan finds questionable? That’s who would be offended by it.
Talk all you want about Southern Pride. When you say that and display a Confederate Flag along with it it’s like saying “White Power”. If you want to be proud of your Southern heritage that’s fine, but that flag has stood for slavery since its inception and has been adopted by racist and white supremacist hate groups.
In the eyes of the rest of the country, you’re just enforcing an old stereotype that people from the south are racist rednecks. Be proud that you’re from the south but be ashamed of its past transgressions.
