New Report on Mormon Masturbation Interviews

New Report on Mormon Masturbation Interviews:  A new report claims that children and teens in the Mormon church, often as young as eight years old, are frequently and aggressively interrogated and shamed by local church officials about masturbation and sex.  While I don’t agree with their practice of interrogating kids about masturbation, I can at least understand where they’re coming from.  I mean, if you have 15 or 20 wives you’re having sex with, its…

In the Matter of Judge Roy Moore, This Is Not A Defense

...But it is something to think about....



Depending on the jurisdiction, legal age of consent to sexual activity  and/or sexual intercourse  ranges from 16 to 18 years old. In some places, civil and criminal laws within the same state conflict with each other.



 In Alabama, an individual 19 years old or older who has sexual contact with someone who is younger than 16 but older than 12 has committed sexual abuse.



Individuals aged 15 or younger in Alabama are…

I read a comment this morning from a favorite writer who mentioned the beauty of his neck of the woods. He mentioned that it is soured by the ignorance and bigotry of many who live there. He mentioned that the roadways are littered, bald tires and broken refrigerators cast off for someone else or more likely nobody to properly dispose of them.

I was struck though that despite this he still sees and wishes for the beauty to prevail.

It can and does in many ways.…

Ranked Choice Voting... It is time!

Image result for Ranked Choice Voting

During the last election several people here WISHED they could have written in candidate "B as in Bernie", but were so afraid of the consequences of a megalomaniac asshat becoming president that they ended up "holding their noses" and voted for candidate "C as in Clinton".

The problem with that is millions upon millions of people felt a seriously flawed candidate was being forced on them and they…

Lump of Coal For Christmas

Gentle reader likely recalls the many times these essays have called out the ingrates in Red states, in particular Appalachia whose population would still be getting water from hand pumped wells, shitting in the dirt, and reading their Bibles with kerosene lamps were it not for the largesse of FDR and developed states. They remain multi-generational ingrates, whose leaders continue to push the USofA toward the United States of Alabama.

Yet another tome…

Minority Report, part the third

Another episode in the continuing tale of minority rule. Gentle reader should recall that these endeavors have made the point that macro policy, if done based on data, relies on government collected and dispensed data. Moreover, gentle reader will remember the posts dealing with the events of 2010, when I had interviewed at the DNC in advance of that election. The Democrats totally ignored the effect of the census, while the Right Wingnuts created…

Man to Launch Himself in Homemade Rocket to Prove Earth Flat

Man to Launch Himself in Homemade Rocket to Prove Earth Flat:  Seeking to prove that a conspiracy of astronauts fabricated the shape of the Earth, a California man intends to prove the Earth is flat by launching himself 1,800 feet into the air at 500 miles per hour in a homemade, steam-powered rocket he built out of scrap metal.  So, to prove the Earth is flat, he’s gonna go “splat!”  I’m guessing he must have missed the last solar eclipse.  And he’ll be…

Would It Matter?

I meant to keep a lifelong journal. It was going to be lists, such as a list of every book I read or every movie I've seen. 

It was going to have a log of every trip I took with little notations about the weather that day. It was going to mention every dinner and what was eaten.

It might be an interesting piece by now but it didn't happen.

I thought at one time for some reason that it would be helpful to have kept track of all that.

The stuff of a…
