Apropos of nothing political....

So you think you have marital sex problems?  

Read about this couple's problems...but try not to lose your head over them. 

Excerpted from an article at Turkey's

A 49-year-old woman in southern Turkey has confessed to the murder of a 67-year-old man whom she decapitated over his insistence to engage in "deviant acts" he has been seeing on German porn movies.

The woman, identified as Gonul S., met Osman T. in the Isparta province last September. The man promised her a civil marriage, if they would be still happy after two or three months living together.

"I accepted and moved in with Osman following a religious marriage ceremony. After 20 days, he began resorting to violence. He has been trying to have sex every day and I was finding an excuse to avoid it. He has been watching German porn channels, wanting me to do the acts he saw there," Gonul S. told the prosecutor in her testimony, Dogan News Agency reported Feb. 7.

I'm trying to figure out how to finish the sentence "It could have been worse....", but, to tell you the truth, I'm coming up a little dry.

This man did not want a wife, he wanted a wanton sex slave. Which means he is now (get ready:  this may well be the worst pun in history) The Headless Whoresman.

Ok, that's enough.  Back to politics, where the heads are attached, but headlessness seems to be a way of life anyway.

Either that, or I'm going to try finding one of them there German po....uh, never mind.

Here is the latest update showing activities of the Palestinian Arabs Israel is expected to make peace with.

Excerpted from Edwin Black's article at  Please pay special attention to the parts I have put in bold print - and be sure to use the above link and read Mr. Black's entire article, so you will know the full extent of this "program":

Congressional legislators were astonished last year to learn that the Palestinian Authority was issuing monthly payouts totaling $3-7 million as salaries and other financial rewards to specific terrorists and their families. The money was channeled, in part, through the Ministry of Prisoners pursuant to the Law of the Prisoner. The law set forth a graduated scale, pegging monthly salaries to the length of Israeli jail sentences, which generally reflects the severity of the crime and the number of people killed and/or injured.

Thousands of documents, newly obtained by this reporter through a lawsuit to unseal court-protected files, demonstrate that these payouts are not blind automated payments. Rather, senior Palestinian Authority officials as high as President Mahmoud Abbas scrutinize the details of each case, the specific carnage caused, and the personal details of each terrorist act before approving salaries and awarding honorary ranks in either the PA government or the military.

Ministry of Prisoners spokesman Amr Nasser has explained, "We are very proud of this program and we have nothing to hide." Nonetheless, in response to the international furor, the Palestinian Authority announced it would replace the Ministry of Prisoners with an outside PLO commission known as the Higher National Commission for Prisoners and Detainees Affairs.

The PA is dependent upon foreign donor countries to supply much of its budget, which now exceeds $4.2 billion annually. About ten percent of the PA budget, more than $400 million, is contributed annually by United States foreign aid. The US and many other countries have enacted laws forbidding any payments when the monies directly or indirectly support or encourage terrorism.

To summarize, the PA, which is specifically forbidden from using "aid" payments to support or encourage terrorism, is using aid payments to support and encourage terrorism.  Proudly.

Meanwhile, the infrastructure hat would better Palestinian Arabs' lives never gets built....but the materials which could be used for such a purpose are diverted to construction of the terror tunnels used to transport weaponry which will be used to kill Jews.

These are the people the world demands that Israel make peace with.

I'll make this short and sweet.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled, this morning, that Alabama should not stop same-sex marriages from taking place.

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore - a devout Christian who believes homosexuality is a sin and, presumably, that people who engage in it will wind up in hell - has decided to help God along in this endeavor by directing that all judges refuse to grant marriage licences to same-sex couples.

Some judges are refusing to do so.

All judges should refuse to do so.  And Moore should be removed from his position immediately. 

He may believe in God, but that doesn't mean he gets to play God. His beliefs are not binding on all Alabamans.

Put another way, a higher legal authority than Roy Moore  has ruled.  If he wants to take it up with a higher spiritual authority, the place to do that is on a Church pew, not a judge's bench.

This is an easy part to, uh, impart.

I can do it by posting the first paragraph of an article by's Mike Allen:

With America's #1 newscast at stake, NBC Universal CEO Steve Burke held a meeting with NBC News executives at his house yesterday to discuss the next steps in the Brian Williams crisis. Williams still hopes to survive, and is considering the timing and venue for his next apology. But his cancellation yesterday of an appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman," scheduled for Thursday, was a sign that the agony - for Williams and the network - may be prolonged.

Prolonged, Mike?  It depends on what you're referring to.

If you are referring to the agony of having an anchor - and news director, let's not forget - who apparently makes a regular habit of either embellishing his gravitas or just making it up as he goes along, you're right.  That, combined with NBC's history of falsifying/doctoring news, is going to haunt the network for a long time to come.

If, however, you are referring to Brian Williams' tenure as news anchor/managing director of NBC Nightly News, I wouldn't count on there being much longevity. 

I'd say prospects are that the Brian Williams Ouster Show will be a mini-series. 

We'll see.......

Just a quick opinion on Brian Williams' (in my mind) inevitable replacement as anchor of NBC Nightly News.

NBC has a tremendous asset in Lester Holt.  He is poised, personable, and - based on the wide range of assignments he has undertaken - versatile and adaptabhle.

Mr. Holt been called on to fill in for Williams until the scandal of his apparent serial dishonesty either blows over (it won't) or he is replaced.

Why not just make it Holt, period?  I can't think of anyone better.  Can you?

This is so repulsive I'm sorry I read it after dinner.

CNN is running a story on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal right now.  Its headline is "Bobby Jindal: 'You mean I'm not white?'"

What does that convey to you?  That Jindal, who is of Indian ancestry and relatively dark-skinned, is trying to pass as White? That he is ashamed of his skin color?

Well here are the first few paragraphs of the actual article.  Please read them and see if the headline matches what is there:

Gov. Bobby Jindal on Monday slammed liberals for being "obsessed with race," calling it "silly" to divide people by their race.

"I think the left is obsessed with race," Jindal, a Louisiana Republican, said Monday at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "The dumbest thing we can do is divide people by the color of their skin."

The remarks came after a faux-controversy erupted when a liberal Louisiana blogger tweeted out a picture of a painting of Jindal, in which the Indian-American governor appears to be white.

The portrait, which is currently displayed in the Louisiana state capitol, is not Jindal's official portrait and was reportedly privately commissioned by a Jindal supporter.

When asked his thoughts on the painting, Jindal addressed the issue with a dose of humor:

"You mean I'm not white?" Jindal joked Monday. "I think this whole thing is silly."

As you can plainly see, all Bobby Jindal did was dismiss - disdain, actually - a "faux controversy" (amazing, isn't it, that this headline is used for an article which specifically debunks it?) 

Obviously, therefore, the headline in no way communicates what Governor Jindal actually said.

But it is a way of convincing people who look no further than the headline, that Mr. Jindal said something 180 degrees different, and 100% more offensive, than what he actually did.

I don't know if that headline is the brainchild of Jeremy Diamond or someone else at CNN.  But whoever put it up there is a disgrace.

If you want an operative color, it is not white.  It is yellow.  As in classic yellow journalism.
