On the subject of double standards

@AmandaMarcotte  in 2007:
defense attorneys for the accused rapists in the Duke lacrosse case “rape-loving scum.”

Marcotte in 2014:
defense attorney Hillary defending accused rapist “shouldn’t matter”.
Of course not, she's Hillary!  And nobody can point to any actual accomplishments, but she should be President anyway!

"We're the Only Ones..."
A police officer mistakenly fired his rifle Wednesday morning while in court in front of the judge. 
A Miami-Dade Police Officer, according to police, was demonstrating a scenario to a judge on the 30th floor of the Lawson E. Thomas Court House around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

After demonstrating, police say the officer mistakenly fired one shot from his police issued rifle, an AR-15.
Wonder if he dropped the magazine and forgot to clear the chamber?  Didn't even bother because "I am an Expert and don't have to worry about such", or what?

Because they want to control everything.  For our own good, of course:
Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.) and Lois Capps (D., Calif.) have, at the urging of reformed adman Seth Matlins (D., formerly of Creative Artists Agency, Rock the Vote, etc.), offered up a very silly bill to empower the federal government to censor advertising on the theory that the overuse of photo-editing software causes anorexia and other eating disorders. The world being full of stupid people, there is an emotionally incontinent for-the-children petition demanding that the Federal Trade Commission implement this censorship, on top of Mr. Matlins’s earlier demand that advertising in which images have been altered — which is to say, advertising — be labeled to alert beef-witted Americans to the fact of that alteration.

I was doing a long drive in Ireland and listening to a bright female who was being interviewed.

She does titty shots for British and Irish newspapers.

When asked by a caller, whether she thought that models were setting a standard that was unrealistic for more normal women, her reply was to the effect:

Ive shared changing rooms with all of the page 3 models, every one of us has cellulite, stretch marks, bruises, blotches, zits, red lines from clothes...

That's what photoshop is for.

Even better, contra Marcotte (as always) - the Duke "rapists" turned out to be completely innocent, didn't they?

Why do people even listen to her babblings?

I have not a clue.

Rather than this rubbish, I suggest that, at least RIGHT NOW, Lois Capps should concern herself about guns — those she voted for [ ], currently being used by vicious eastern European Nazis to commit genocide against the civilian populations of southeast Ukraine:

'UKRAINE: Lois Capps gets her war: Neo-Nazis burn dozens to death in Odessa; Neo-Nazi armor heading east, attacking Russian-Ukrainians'


[01:18] "Save Donbass People from Ukrainian Army!"
