What's good for the Gander is no good for the Sheeple

The Washington Times has an editorial titled "One law for us, another for you". It reveals that the California Senate voted (28-8) to exempt itself from gun-control laws that apply to everyone else in California. Additionally it notes some other beauties that they've bestowed upon themselves:

"Exact salaries for state assemblymen and senators are obscured by the use of a “per diem” payment scheme that shelters a significant chunk of income from taxation."

"lawmakers rejected a bill that would have prohibited acceptance of concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, spa treatments, golf outings and other benefits from lobbyists trying to buy votes."

"select public employees [are allowed] to avoid paying red-light-camera tickets and escape any consequence for using toll roads without paying. The current system grants free rides to politicians, court workers, police officers, city council members, social workers, meter maids and their spouses."

Forget the Red team vs Blue team politics. This is government, again, creating one law for themselves and one law for the tax livestock.

These are the same people that exempt themselves from airport body gropes and have tax livestock funded security allocated after their terms of office. These are the societal parasites that give themselves pay raises while knocking back increases for the sheeple and grant healthcare that is better than the voter ... you know the list is sickeningly long.

It's not about who you vote in, it's about the power you let them steal from you.

Virgins and Whores

Amnesty International has revealed that women protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square (9 Mar 2011) were forced to take virginity tests.

The story is covered in two articles - "Egypt: Admission of forced 'virginity tests' must lead to justice" and "Egyptian women protesters forced to take 'virginity tests' ."

It has also been covered by the Australian ABC in "Egypt must investigate forced virginity tests"

Some (insane?) choice quotes:

"We didn't want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren't virgins in the first place,"

"The girls who were detained were not like your daughter or mine,"

"These were girls who had camped out in tents with male protesters in Tahrir Square, and we found in the tents Molotov cocktails and (drugs),"

Before the pro-western, pro-christian indignation rises too high, remember that the United States was more than happy to use Egypt for Rendition. This means that allies of the U.S. also support/condone this torture.

These are your leaders using your money and committing these atrocities in your name.
