What's Wrong With Bratz?

What's wrong with cute Bratz dolls for little girls to play with? They wear tons of makeup, and really sexy clothing like midriff showing tops and skirts with thongs. Don't we want our k-5 girls learning how to be hoes? Now for the pre-k we even have baby Bratz with tons of makeup and sexy clothes over their diapers.

There is not a thing wrong with Bratz if you are a pedophile.

That's about the nicest thing I can say about these perverted toys for girls. I used to not really care about kids toys. Now that I have a daughter I am HORRIFIED at the Bratz. I remember when they first came out. We were in ToysRUs and I called my wife over to the display. We were beside ourselves.

If you are thinking "What a prude!" then I ask: do you let your daughter act and look this way? No? Then why encourage it with the toy? If you do let your daughter act this way then you may need to step back and look at her from the prospective of teenage boys and the monsters I mentioned previously.


Beer Joke Guilt

I saw the Drudge Headline "Man shot over warm beer" and laughed with most everyone else. I thought it was very strange to have a warm beer in St. Louis during the middle of a huge snowstorm and laughed at the irony.

Today I read this piece (link in title) from an author who went to the funeral of Robert Jones, the man who was shot. I'm not laughing anymore.

The correct term for what I'm feeling is convicted. Meaning, I'm guilty of something I realize I should not have done. Read the article if you didn't laugh at the story. If you are man enough to admit you laughed, it will be good for you to read the article too.


Political & Predatorial Time Bomb

He has a record of making unwanted advances and saying lude things to subordinates. His behavior is well known but covered up by party leadership. It is good that he is no longer serving in office.

Am I talking about Foley? NO! I'm talking about Bill Clinton!

There is at least one credible charge of assault against Clinton yet he is still lauded and loved by the Democrats. Remember the James Carville discredit of "drag a hundred-dollah bill thru a trailer park" comment? Foley sends some dirty emails, keeps his hands to himself, and is called a ticking "time bomb" by the press.

I guess if you are a Republican you have to be straight laced, and I don't have a problem with that. However the double standard of permitting a rapist to go untouched because he is a Democrat is a little hard to swallow.


Kofi's Twisted Perspective

Can it be the same United Nations who could not enforce a single resolution against Iraq? Can it be the same UN that had the most corrupt oil-for-food program with Saddam? Can this be the same organization whose leader now says "Iraqis are worse off now than they were under Saddam?... Because he (kofi) could not prevent Bush-Blair's invasion?"

Kofi did not have the leadership to enforce edicts issued under his leadership. Nor was Kofi even able to make his son behave, so why would we expect him to have any ability to "stop Bush and Blair"?

Kofi's comments give us a view inside a man who is not strong enough to admit mistakes.
