4:57 P.M. Another good one from Kenny …

When you look at it that way….. Posted on 03/11/2017 by Wirecutter Students at a local college were assigned to read two books, “Titanic” and “My Life” by Bill Clinton …

They were asked to do a book report and contrast the 2 books …

One student turned in the following book report with the proposition that they were nearly identical stories ! …

Titanic: Cost = $29.99

Clinton : Cost = $29.99

Titanic: Over 3 hours to read

Clinton : Over 3 hours to read

Titanic: The story of Jack and Rose, their forbidden love, and subsequent catastrophe.

Clinton : The story of Bill and Monica, their forbidden love, and subsequent catastrophe

Titanic: Jack is a starving artist.

Clinton : Bill is a bullshit artist.

Titanic: In one scene, Jack enjoys a good cigar.

Clinton : Ditto for Bill

Titanic: During the ordeal, Roses dress gets ruined.

Clinton : Ditto for Monica’s.

Titanic: Jack teaches Rose to spit.

Clinton : Lets not go there.

Titanic: Rose gets to keep her jewellery.

Clinton : Monica is forced to return her gifts.

Titanic: Rose remembers Jack for the rest of her life.

Clinton : Clinton doesn’t remember anything.

Titanic: Rose goes down on a vessel full of seamen.

Clinton : Monica… Ooh, lets not go there, either.

Titanic: Jack surrenders to an icy death.

Clinton : Bill goes home to Hillary; basically the same thing.

His professor gave him an A+

1:14 P.M. Penguins “scrambling in terror” !!! …

Mar2015WAWHeader

Fans who attended the Stadium Series game last weekend at Heinz Field were treated to waddling penguins during the pregame show, but organizers are getting backlash from animal welfare activists. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is criticizing the Pittsburgh Penguins’ use of live penguins before the game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

“At Saturday’s Pittsburgh Penguins game, live penguins from the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium were paraded in front of the screaming crowd and (were) caught on camera scrambling in terror from a fireworks explosion,” PETA said in a news release. PETA representatives sent a letter to the hockey franchise, calling on the team to never again use live animals at Heinz Field. “It’s inherently stressful for wild animals like penguins to be hauled around, used as props and exposed to noisy crowds, with or without explosives going off,” PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman said in the news release. “PETA is calling for the only Penguins on the ice at Heinz Field to be humans on skates.”

PETA’s letter to the Pittsburgh Penguins read, in part: “It’s inherently stressful for wild animals — who naturally shun contact with humans and are extremely sensitive to environmental changes — to be hauled around, used as props, and exposed to noisy crowds, with or without explosives going off. Hockey fans come to see talented athletes compete, not shy animals terrorized.   “Being held in captivity is stressful enough to make penguins susceptible to illness, and putting them in a crowded, noisy stadium only makes matters worse.” The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium responded, saying they worked with NHL officials to ensure the animals’ safety, which is their main priority. In a statement, a spokesperson said: “The NHL worked with us to ensure that the penguins would be safe and enjoy their visit to Heinz Field. The Pittsburgh Zoo was honored to be asked to be a part of the Winter Classic as well as celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Pittsburgh Penguins.   “The penguins who attended the Winter Classic are some of the same penguins that participate in our weekend Penguins on Parade event.  They are very comfortable around people and noises. In addition, it was a great enrichment opportunity for our penguins to be introduced to new sounds, sights, and smells.” In addition, zoo officials said, the penguins’ keepers and a senior veterinarian were with the penguins at all times on the ice. In response to PETA’s allegation that the birds were “scrambling in terror,” zoo officials said: “The loud pop from the pyrotechnical display temporarily startled the penguins and their first reaction, similar to a human’s when startled,  they flapped their wings. It was less than 10 seconds, and the penguins were back to normal and exploring and playing on the ice.”

MORBNOTE ;  Similar to when humans are startled ?!!! … Yeah … Every time I get ‘ startled ‘ I tend to flap my wings a bit too !!! …

7:41 P.M. Dear Haaretz.com … TAKE A COUPLE OF VALLIUMS !!! …

2015MediaHead

Trump’s anti-media blitzkrieg, which includes undermining its credibility, branding it as an enemy of the American people and selectively boycotting the outlets that annoy him the most, are being widely cheered by right-wingers with poisoned minds. After eons in which right-wing politicians have portrayed the mainstream media as mouthpieces for the dreaded liberal establishment, after years in which conservatives have been gorging themselves with the dark fantasies and concocted conspiracy theories of delusional right-wing media, it’s hardly surprising that Trump’s fans cheer him on as if they were bloodthirsty crowds in Rome’s Colosseum, delighting in yet another Christian being torn to bits by the beast in the arena.

MORBNOTE ; A tad ‘ over the top ‘  .. Don’t ya think ?!!! …

Trump is a dream come true for all those who detest those arrogant journalists who presume to speak in the name of freedom of speech and the rule of law, two concepts that are also being steadily eroded now by similarly reckless politicians. Republicans, who haven’t completely taken leave of their consciences – even though some of them may share Trump’s antagonism towards the press – are well aware that their president is playing with fire. They realize that he is trying to mold an “alternative reality” which he’ll be able to sculpt as he sees fit. They have no idea whether Trump will want or be able to stop at the last minute, before damage is done to the First Amendment – or the physical well-being of a journalist.

Along with luxury vacations, diamond bracelets and personal training sessions, celebrities who receive unofficial gift bags at the Oscars this year will also get a modest offering from Quebec. The famously over-the-top swag bags, whose value usually runs in the six figures, is distributed annually by a Los Angeles-based marketing company to the nominees in the best actor, actress, supporting actor and actress and best director categories. This year, the bag will contain a “Positive Cube” — a small wooden box produced by Quebec-based company Bangarang. The boxes contain 199 cards, each bearing a positive or inspirational saying. Marie-Eve D’Amico, one-half of the young couple behind the product, is crossing her fingers that a big star such as Meryl Streep or Denis Villeneuve will take a shine to it. “With the mission we have of spreading the positive and supporting worthy causes, I think that touches people, so we’ll see,” she said in a phone interview.

This is ‘ Canada’s ‘ contribution to the over blown bullshit of the Oscars ?!!! … Two KBec tarts coming up with a cheap ass gift for people that make FAR TOO MUCH  money anyway … And think they’re cute doing so ?!!! …

The word ‘ entrepreneur ‘ has absolutely been completely rendered worthless !!! … Strike it from the vocabulary !!! …

In 1973, Marlon Brando – along with the media and the rest of the move-watching world – was confident that he would win the Oscar for Best Actor for Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather. Even now, it’s a no-brainer. Because he was so sure he would be taking home the statue, Brando decided to take advantage of the moment and place the spotlight somewhere that he felt needed it more. Choosing to boycott the ceremony that year in protest of Hollywood’s treatment of Native Americans, Brando was nowhere to be seen the night of, despite it being considered his night to own. Instead, when Brando’s name was eventually called by presenter Roger Moore, it was Native American activist Sacheen Littlefeather, in traditional clothing, who walked through the throngs of diamond-adorned celebrities and approached the podium to present a speech – stunning the audience. To a resounding chorus of boos, she explained that Brando “very regretfully cannot accept this generous award, the reasons for this being…are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry and on television in movie reruns, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee.”

The lower-court judge temporarily halted the ban after determining that the states were likely to win the case and had shown that the ban would restrict travel by their residents, damage their public universities and REDUCE THEIR TAX BASE !!! …

MORBNOTE ; The ‘ tax base ‘ portion of their  decision is the SOLE reason !!! …

The states said Trump’s travel ban harmed individuals, businesses and universities. Citing Trump’s campaign promise to stop Muslims from entering the U.S., they said the ban unconstitutionally blocked entry to people based on religion.

Both sides faced tough questioning during an hour of arguments Tuesday conducted by phone  … an unusual step that was broadcast live on cable networks, newspaper websites and social media. It attracted a huge audience.

The judges hammered away at the Trump administration’s claim that the ban was motivated by terrorism fears, but they also challenged the states’ argument that it targeted Muslims.
