The big news tonight on the local news here in Austin was the long, long line of cars waiting for gasoline as panic spread through the city (and probably the state) and people headed for the local stations to top off their cars in anticipation of shortages.   This, of course, resulted in many gas stations […]

(Note:  This had probably not been edited like it should.  I couldn’t even remember my own password…) The  weather here has cooled off, it’s now only 85 to 95!   Therefore it is time to mow the lawn.  Most of this summer I have managed to avoid it simply because my husband got to it first, […]

My little neck of the woods, Lake County, Northern Calif has an amazing variety of thrift shops. When we first moved here, we couldn’t locate the box holding our silverware and our dinnerware, so rather than go through forty boxes of stuff, I went off to the thrifts. I came home with a glittery set […]

Like all virtue signalers they are nowhere to be found in a disaster. Unless of course there was a camera nearby. Or a social media network to score points on. Perhaps I’m being too harsh. After all they could be doing other stuff. Maybe they are in the Muslim world preaching feminism….. Preview Open

Multiculturalists tell us that strength lies in diversity. Different cultures give rise to different points of view and different ideas. Except, of course, we should not actually use any of those different ideas because that would be cultural appropriation.   Preview Open

Rabbis Won’t Forgive Trump

 

In an article at The Federalist, Menachem Wecker explained that a tradition that began with Barack Obama was going to be boycotted by a group of US rabbis, including conservative, reform, and reconstructionist rabbis. The conference call was originally scheduled with thousands of rabbis to consult with them and convey the president’s best wishes to them for this especially holy time of year, the days approaching Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

This year, however, this particular group of rabbis determined that Donald Trump’s comments following the events in Charlottesville were “so lacking in moral leadership and empathy for the victims of racial and religious hatred” that they refused to organize the call. In fact, they published a statement that included this paragraph:

ACF #12: Strong Women

 

Folks, the show is back — this is my second podcast with my friend Pete Spiliakos and he has another great idea to explore: Movie heroines of our times. First, we’re going back a generation to ask about the origins of these characters: Whatever happened with the last of the Boomers and the first of the Gen X-ers? We’re talking about the arrival of thrillers and horrors that thematize the problem of adulthood for young women. We start with Nancy, the heroine of Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street (1984); then go on to Laurie (played by Jaime Lee Curtis), the heroine of John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978); and then Sarah Connor, the famous heroine of James Cameron’s The Terminator (1984).

Asia and the Color of Beauty

 

White is beautiful. Among the cultures within the Asia-Pacific region, white skin translates to feminine beauty, desirability and class. From China to India, Korea to Thailand, white or pale skin is an obsession among the fairer sex. Before you think Malaysian girls and Chinese gals want to be White, no, they do not want to be White; they do not want to look White. They just want white skin.

Women from these cultures go to crazy lengths to get white skin. In Vietnam, women shun sunlight like vampires. When out in the sun, they cover themselves from heads to toe with hats, face masks, big sunglasses, long-sleeve shirts, and umbrellas. Arm-length gloves are a must, and in a tropical climate that is just self-torture. Morning joggers/runners wrap their bodies in swathing fabric like mummies. Also, sunbathing is unthinkable, though Chinese beach goers recently cracked that particular problem with full body suits and masks. Burkini has got nothing on the face-kini!

Of course just avoiding the sun wouldn’t transform these women into Snow White, so they turn to skin-whitening products. And these products sell better than hotcakes, with East Asia being the largest consumer of all. A recent survey by the London-based Synovate found 4 out of 10 women surveyed in South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines and Taiwan use skin-whitening products. In India, the skin-whitening market was worth $432 million in 2010 and growing at 18% annually. Skincare in China is a $5 billion market, with 71% coming from whitening products alone.

How did Russian collusion with hurricane Harvey affect the flooding in Houston? How does the White House benefit? Was the collusion directed by the RNC, or was it solely due to the actions of Trump’s secret  Alt-Right/neo-Nazi operatives? The whole affair seems to have Gorka’s thumbprints all over it. Did he and Bannon recently leave […]
