Now, that's progress!
In an enormous step towards freedom, democracy and equal rights, Saudi Arabia is now allowing women to sell underwear. Ten thousand Islamic clerics had a stroke at the news and another five hundred or so had severe episodes of fainting but were able to recover.

Of course this is only the first step. I'm sure that the next priority on the Saudi agenda is the building of a synagogue and a church in the ancient city of Medina as offerings of goodwill and peacemaking to the other religions in the Middle East. And I know that after that, they're envisioning an Islamic conference where they'll announce that Jews and Christians are really not that bad.

I tell you, you let a woman sell panties, it's all downhill from there.

Crackdown on polygamy
I had written about the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints before, I was surprised to find out that a cult involved in abusing minors had been allowed to operate undisturbed for so long. Warren Jeffs, the group's spiritual leader and "prophet", has now been placed on the FBI's 'Ten Most Wanted Fugitives' list, and he's wanted on charges of sexual assault on underage girls.
When the FLDS under Mr. Jeffs (and his father before him) grew to some 10,000 followers in several southwestern communities with estimated assets of $110 million; when it became clear that government officials, school authorities, and police in those communities had become intertwined with the sect; when ex-members increasingly reported child and sexual abuse charges (mainly involving underage girls forced to marry older men); and when the sect began to use secluded compounds, state and federal authorities started to crack down more vigorously.
...
Specifically, Jeffs is charged in Utah and Arizona with sexual assault of underage girls and with arranging "spiritual" marriages for girls and older men. At weekend press conferences in Salt Lake City and Phoenix, FBI and state officials said Jeffs "is considered armed and dangerous and may be traveling with armed bodyguards." In the past, he has talked in apocalyptic terms about a violent end to the world, according to former members.

"The thing that makes it so hard to track a guy like this down is that he probably has a lot of cash, and like Osama bin Laden [who also is on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted list], he has people who totally buy into his position as a religious icon, and would guard him quite loyally," says Levin.

'Protecting the family' in Poland
Since the League of Polish Families joined the coalition government last week, gay and lesbian people in Poland will be facing quite a battle ahead of them. Marchers who joined the annual gay and lesbian parade in Krakow were attacked by members of the Catholic Mlodziez Wszechpolska youth group who think that "violence is bad but there is no way you can protest against this abnormality without violence." Prejudice forms a new line between east and west.
Mr Marcinkiewicz summed up the thinking in the coalition's main Law and Justice party when he told the Polish edition of Newsweek: "If [a] person tries to infect others with their homosexuality, the state must intervene in this violation of freedom."

The assumption that gay people want to spread a diseased lifestyle encourages Catholic groups who have long targeted homosexuality. Thousands of headteachers have received a 29-page booklet from the fundamentalist Piotr Skarga Catholic association, named after a 16th-century Polish Jesuit, which issues instructions on how to ensure youngsters do not become gay. Entitled Taboos about Homosexuality, the pamphlet uses graphic language to scare young people . "Around 75% of homosexuals admit they put their tongue into their partner's anus which means they eat lots of faeces," the booklet tells teachers. "Homosexuals crawling in faeces and eating it suffer bad health."

The booklet attempts to depict gay people as blood suckers. In a section on oral sex, it says: "Sperm has bacteria which is transferred from blood. So homosexuals almost drink blood."
I take it straight people in Poland do not have oral sex.

Vote For Us, Or We'll Lose Power
Are you motivated to vote in this year's midterm elections? If you do vote, and you've been voting Republican recently, are you still going to vote for a Republican candidate?

To tell the truth, this is the first election in a long time that has me totally uninterested in either side. I don't really care if the Democrats take over the House. What's the danger? That we'll get no entitlement reform, no immigration reform, no permanent tax cuts? What's the point of voting this year?

I don't see President Bush pulling out of his funk any time soon. Nor do I see him dealing with Iran vigorously any time soon. I recently read something about how Bolton has been reassuring the Russians and Chinese that the UN Security Council resolution we seek will not be used as a justification for sanctions. Bolton! The guy who's supposed to be our ass-kicker at the UN! And there's been so much sickening corruption among our legislators. The Republican response has been limited to "oh good, a Democrat got caught on the take too, that means they can't nail us on this one". Geez, how principled. How about cleaning house, guys?

This is a very moribund moment in American politics, and I want to hear promises that something vaguely resembling a conservative agenda will be enacted if I come out and vote for the GOP. I don't hear anything compelling, and I'm not interested in what the Democrats are selling, so I think I might stay home this fall. I'm not a Republican voter for the sake of being a Republican; I'm a Republican voter because Republicans claim to want to enact policies that I believe in more often than do Democrats. When they're not enacting policy, when they can't control spending, when they won't take any fucking initiative or get anything substantial done in Washington, I have no reason to vote for them. I'll wait till 2008. Or beyond.
What do you do to get voters to the polls? If you're the ruling party do you point to your record? To how you handled the nation's finances, security, border security, or your perception of your foreign policy accomplishments?

You'd think so, but this year the GOP's slogan to other GOPers apparently is "Vote For Us — Because Otherwise We Could Lose."

It's apparently the pitch being made to Republicans in Congress by party bigwigs and to party partisans by the party.

Babies cry in the womb!
I didn't know that babies could cry in the womb; did you? I'm especially curious if any of you mothers have suspected that your baby was crying in your womb. We humans are exceedingly fascinating creatures. I guess it would be a curious, silent sort of crying, since you would be unable to draw great gasping sobs. Poor babies, what do they have to cry about? They haven't even had their hearts broken yet! What a shadowy and furtive existence it must be, to be a potential human in the womb. I guess I might cry because of the overwhelming awe that I even exist, assuming I had my wits about me enough to ponder it. I wonder if the first artificially sentient lifeform might make its existence known not by secretly befriending a sympathetic human, as the science fiction trope would have it, but by crying?
Sept. 20, 2005 — Babies start crying in the womb as early as 28 weeks, according to video-recorded ultrasound images.

Jeannine Gingras at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C., and colleagues made the discovery after playing tones of about 100 Hz and 95 decibels through a speaker placed on the stomach of a pregnant woman.

The response, recorded with an ultrasound scan, showed the fetus startling and turning the head as the sound stimulation was played.

Then the fetus showed all the characteristics of crying: an open mouth, increasing head tilts, a quivering chin and several irregular breaths before exhaling and settling with a turn of the head, mouthing and swallowing.

Preparing for civil war in Gaza
Hamas and Fatah had a gunfight in downtown Gaza City, leaving three dead and nine injured, including five children. Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh called on the leaders of Hamas and Fatah to take "full responsibility in order to stop these incidents, which have created ill feelings." Yeah, I would say terrorism and murder create ill feelings. Most Israelis would probably agree with that as well.
Monday's violence began before dawn in the farming community of Abassan in southeastern Gaza. Hamas tried to kidnap a Fatah member, apparently to settle an old score, said Fatah spokesman Tawfiq Abu Khoussa.

The kidnapping ignited several hours of violence that included more kidnappings and fire fights, including one exchange that sent civilians ducking for cover. One Hamas militant was killed. All captives were released after negotiations.

At one point, Hamas gunmen ambushed Fatah militants driving on the main road in two jeeps with red government license plates. One jeep was hit by a shoulder-held missile, killing two Fatah gunmen who were also members of the security forces. The second vehicle was riddled with bullets.

The clashes Tuesday erupted after Hamas gunmen opened fire on Fatah activists at the home of a top Fatah official, witnesses said. The Fatah gunmen returned fire and nine were injured in the exchange, including five children, officials said.

According to Hamas officials, bodyguards working for a top Fatah leader had kidnapped three members of the Hamas military wing earlier in the day and the Hamas gunmen had gone to try to free them. Fatah officials denied the accusations.
