Making a Mountain Out of a Miniskirt

This girl needs to learn how to pick her battles and her mom needs some parenting lessons.

"A fourth-grader is protesting a rule by her school principal that bans the kinds of miniskirts she likes to wear. Zoe Hinkle, 10, and her mother, Leslie, say there’s nothing wrong with the skirt. It has shorts sewn into it underneath, Leslie says."

The editorial staff at the Pitt News summed up my feelings well.

Don’t Eat the WMD

Voices for Animals is presenting a film about alleged deceptions about WMDs in Iraq and participating in an anti-war march. Did we blow up a lot of wildlife over there or is this just comical mission creep? This reminds me of some of the shenanigans at the anti-war rally and march just before the war in Iraq. A war protest is not the appropriate time and place to make a fuss about GLBT rights or abortion.


A couple weeks ago I heard about 11 Christians who were arrested while peacefully
protesting Outfest in Philadelphia. I waited for a few MSM outlets to report it,

Demonstrators spend 21 hours in jail, charged with felonies

Homosexuals planned Christian harassment

Criminalized thoughts?

Jokes about political correctness have been around for more than a decade, and many Americans now take for granted conflicts over manger scenes on public property and Christmas carols in public schools.

Right to Protest

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Pacifists have just as much right to protest as anybody. In fact, sometimes I even join them. However, last I checked, protesters didn’t have the right to demand no barriers/pens, free water, free transportation, and monetary compensation.

Butt Is It Protest?

A while back I called attention to some silly protesting going in in the form of nude women. Well it seems the guys got their turn. I still don’t understand what nudity has to do with peace. Maybe they hoped enough ugly people showed that Bush and his cronies would see them and say, "For Pete’s sake, please put some clothes on! I promise to not got to war if you’ll just cover those hideous bodies!"
