Khamanei Confirms The Gender Apartheid In Iran
"Men are suited to enter economic and financial arenas… Women, however, have preoccupations....", thus spake Ali 'beggar' Khamanei.
In an appalling and misogynistic comment, mullahs' Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei tried to justify gender apartheid and denying women the right to political and social activity under the medieval theocracy ruling Iran.

In remarks carried by the state-controlled news agency, IRNA, last Sunday, Khamenei said, "Men are suited to enter economic and financial arenas… Women, however, have preoccupations. They must give birth and feed the child, and they are physically, psychologically and emotionally soft. They cannot enter into every field. They cannot tolerate every interaction. These create restrictions for women in financial and economic fields and related activities. Men do not have these restrictions. In this respect, privilege must be given to men because they are strong."

As such, Khamenei again justified systematic discrimination in law and practice against women as well as their increasing deprivation from participating in society's social and political affairs. In doing so, he put aside the clerical regime's pretenses of supporting women's rights in the past eight years, particularly during the recent sham Presidential elections, that were merely designed for foreign consumption.

To this end, a woman Parliament deputy, Fatemeh Ajarlou, responding to the question as to why there were no women in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's cabinet, told semi-official news agency, ILNA, on August 29, "Not choosing a woman as a cabinet member or in the parliament leadership is an exercise in democracy."

Another woman, Seddiqeh Kiani, from the ultra-conservative pro-Khamenei grouping Allied Association (Mo'talefeh) told the same news agency, "The more women are kept away from interacting with strangers is better for them. We have no objections to the absence of women in the cabinet." In trying to justify the mullahs' medieval mindset, she said, "One must not insist on the presence women in areas where men could be used. That they say a woman should not become a judge is because women are flexible and it would not be proper for them to witness disputes and arguments every day or issue death sentences for any one."

Ms. Sarvnaz Chitsaz, Chairwoman of NCRI's Women's Committee, said, "The mullahs' misogynous remarks are before anything else a reflection of their fear over the increasing role women are playing in the struggle against this misogynist regime and their pivotal role in toppling the ruling theocracy."

Stupid Pothead Retracts Stupid Nazi Comparison
JTA - Breaking News
Tokin' Apology

Now that he is out of jail, British Columbia marijuana activist Marc Emery has issued a public apology to Canadian Justice Minister Irwin Cotler for calling him a "Nazi-Jew."

Emery also had compared Canada's treatment of marijuana smokers to the Nazi persecution of Jews and other minorities.

But this week he explained that the harsh conditions he faced while in jail had made him resentful and unkind. "I feel ashamed when my Jewish friends tell me they are ill-at-ease by my using the terms Nazi or Holocaust when referring to this issue or incident," Emery wrote Wednesday on his Cannabis Culture Web site. He went on to praise Cotler's "magnificent body of accomplishments" and added, "He in no way deserves to have this kind of remark hurled at him in the media.

The 47-year-old "Prince of Pot," faces possible extradition to the United States for selling marijuana seeds to Americans.
Oh. Well, that's okay then. Thanks for apologizing, although it's pretty strange that you had to have your Jewish friends inform you that YOU STUPID FREAKING IDIOT!

On a side note, I've been filing my Canada stories to the "euros and sense" category, because, well, it made more sense than putting you in "american pie". Once again feeling conflicted about this, I decided you deserve your own category. Your stuff now goes in "the red ensign".

Palestinian Christians
A Palestinian Muslim woman fell in love with her boss who is Christian. She was six months pregnant when her family poisoned her because she besmirched the family honour. Her relatives then set off to lynch her lover and in the process torched houses, cars and businesses and beat up several people in the mostly Christian village of Taybeh. The Palestinian Authority police arrived just in time to prevent the lynching, arrested the people responsible for the assault and then promptly set them free in order "to cool things down." I wonder how long it'll be before her lover is found dead.

Kuwait digs deep
Kuwait Pledges $500M for Hurricane Relief. For reference, there are a little more than 2 million Kuwaitis, so this is about $250 per Kuwaiti. Thanks, guys!
KUWAIT CITY -- The oil-rich Persian Gulf state of Kuwait said Sunday it will donate $500 million in aid to U.S. relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina.

The offer is the largest known put forward since the hurricane ravaged Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama and follows a $100 million aid donation from the emir of a Mideast neighbor, Qatar.

Kuwait's energy minister said his country would provide "oil products that the disaster-stricken states need in addition to other humanitarian aid."

"It's our duty as Kuwaitis to stand by our friends to lighten the humanitarian misery and as a payback for the many situations during which Washington helped us through the significant relations between the two friendly countries," Sheik Ahmed Fahd Al Ahmed Al Sabah said in a statement carried by Kuwait's official news agency, KUNA.

Kuwait is one of America's closest Mideast allies and owes its 1991 liberation from Iraqi occupation forces to a U.S.-led coalition that drove Saddam Hussein's army out.

Kuwait and Qatar's donations came as the Egypt-based 22-member Arab League called on Arab nations to provide relief to the U.S.

The Arab League said that its secretary-general, Amr Moussa, sent a cable of "deep condolences and regret to the U.S. administration over the effect of Hurricane Katrina ... and called on all Arab countries to extend aid to the United States to face the exceptional humane circumstances."
I guess rich white Americans are a more attractive charity recipient than poor brown Muslims, because Kuwait gave something like a dollar per citizen to the tsunami victims. Still, five hundred million smackeroos sure make up for this stupid stinkbeard's rantings.

The Other Side of a Judge
Alan Dershowitz: Telling the Truth About Chief Justice Rehnquist
My mother always told me that when a person dies, one should not say anything bad about him. My mother was wrong. History requires truth, not puffery or silence, especially about powerful governmental figures. And obituaries are a first draft of history. So here’s the truth about Chief Justice Rehnquist you won’t hear on Fox News or from politicians. Chief Justice William Rehnquist set back liberty, equality, and human rights perhaps more than any American judge of this generation. His rise to power speaks volumes about the current state of American values.

How To Get Your Books Back
I was just thinking about a book that I lent a few years ago and never got back, and how annoyed I am about that, and with the girl who still has it. The book was Julian Jaynes's On The Origin Of Consciousness In The Breakdown Of The Bicameral Mind. She gave me lots of reassurance about how I would surely get it back from her. She lied through her lying teeth.

I feel like somewhat of a sucker, and I have a very long memory when it comes to my books.

There are a lot more of my books in circulation among the amoral gang of scoundrels who call themselves my friends. They can rest assured that I remember each and every single one of the gaping holes in my bookshelf, the same way you feel a gap in your teeth with your tongue and can't stop rubbing it. I intend to stop this plague of passive-aggressive book thievery and loose morals once and for all.

Thinking about this...

Since this keeps happening, and I'm too kindhearted to refuse to lend a book earnestly requested, maybe I'll ask for a twenty dollar bill. Cash money, baby. It's a small enough amount that I imagine most anyone has a spare twenty on them. It's enough money that the person will want it back. I'll cut it in half, and keep half. Upon return of my book, I'll give back the other half of the bill.

A couple of the other ideas I'm thinking of are not for the book lover with a delicate constitution. I am going to suggest a couple of measures that permanently mar your book's immaculate physical condition.

I'm not a gentle reader. I draw in and on my books, write marginalia, fold over the corner of a page if all my other bookmarks are in use, tear off the hardcover if the book's too heavy to carry around, and so on.

So I don't mind mutilating the book to save it, but I understand some of you are prissy Victorian readers who are terrified of the slightest crease in your book's spine, because who knows what happen next! Dancing might break out in mixed company!

So, Polly Prissypants, if you're already feeling queasy and your stomach is churning or you're threatening to faint, you may wish to skip the next two paragraphs, or print this out and cut them out. Here are some handy scissor marks:


Maybe I could draw porno doodles in the empty space at the start of every chapter in my books as I read them. Then the book would be too embarrassing to keep in their house and they would be eager to return it after reading it. The less attractive my books are as a target for so-called "borrowers", the better. I'll start looking at my lewd creations as old familiar friends, horny gargoyle guardians of my library, when I reread my books.

Or I could resort to Fermat's Last Trick In The Book, and leave intriguing marginalia at the end. For example:

"I have something truly marvelous to tell you, but this margin is too narrow to contain it. I'll tell you when you give my book back you THIEF! ♥, evariste"

That gives me a problem though, which is how do I come up with something truly marvelous to tell them when they ask, "what was the truly marvelous thing you wanted to tell me?"

"I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to GEICO" works approximately once. "I forgot" is a letdown, as is "I lied". "Jesus gave his life to wash away your sins" is likely to get a "so the fuck what?" in my Blue state. "You're good enough, you're smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like you" is cheesy. Farting in response only makes guys laugh, and I can't reliably summon farts like some talented people. I'm so jealous of them.


I could even tear out the last few pages when they borrow the book, and let them read them in my presence when they return it.


I could buy from eBay, and conspicuously display, an assortment of voodoo priest accessories. I bet there's all kinds of voodoo priests selling their stuff on eBay thanks to Katrina, so I'd be helping the victims of Katrina at the same time.

Then if someone wants to borrow a book, I'll pull out my trusty voodoo scissors and snip off a lock of their hair. Then I would write their name on a special voodoo kleenex or voodoo plastic sandwich baggie in front of them, and roll the lock of hair in it, and put the whole thing in the neck of a voodoo bottle. When they give back the book, they can have their hair back. I need to Google voodoology and make sure that this would be a realistic fake voodoo blackmail procedure.

I could also demand a naked photo.

I would hand them a Polaroid camera and send them into a tiny closet with nothing but floor to ceiling, wall to wall mirrors in it. Then I would accept all their articles of clothing one by one as they disrobed, to make sure it's really a naked picture. An envelope slipped under the door, they lick and seal it and slip it back, then I hand back the clothes.

Then, I write the date they promise to return it on the envelope, put the envelope next to the book, and take a Polaroid of the two. The book, the date it needs to be back, both in a convenient Polaroid which I'll slip in the book. They can use it as a handy bookmark!

If my book isn't back by the date, I open the envelope. The envelope goes in the trash. The picture goes on the internet, on my mildly popular blog.

Although I'm sure it will become more than *mildly* popular once the naked pictures start going up on my Internet Wall of Shaming You Goddamn Deadbeats.

If the criminal is a girl, I may also use the picture as a visualization aid while I perform a private ritual of which I'm very fond. Every time I perform the ritual, I'll simply increment a plain numeric counter underneath her picture. Her imagination and feminine modesty will do the heavy lifting for me, and I'm sure the book will be back safe and sound before too long.

Especially attractive ladies' counters will probably increment more than once a day.

Now, this one has a drawback. Your deadbeat may already be an amateur porn star. In this day and age of easy personal web publishing tools and a camcorder in every pot, on every desk, in every home, running Microsoft software, I can personally vouch that there is a wide assortment of amateur content on the web of an extremely personal nature, often involving barnyard animals.

As an editorial remark, much of this amateur content is of high quality.

To make sure that your future deadbeat (and don't kid yourself, they're all deadbeats) isn't already a famous naked internet celebrity person, you'll need to do extensive amounts of research by visiting so-called "porno sites".

I recommend that you do not shirk this tiresome chore.

As an incentive for yourself, you may wish to explore enjoyable private rituals of your own and perform them while you are researching. One hallmark of the so-called "new economy" is the mixing of work and play, and multitasking is considered a highly valued skill in this attention-starved, information-glutted working world.

However, I have discovered through bitter experience that employers do not seem to prioritize applicants who make a point of highlighting for their attention this form of practical work experience, so you may wish to leave it off your resumé, unless you use bland terms like "good multitasker" and "enjoys research, and discovering practical applications for data".
