“Yes Means Yes” = Guilty Until Proven Innocent

yes-means-yes

We want the government out of the bedroom! Until we want them in it!

A few weeks ago, Governor “Moonbeam” Brown signed into law a bill that sets the definition of consent and “when yes really means yes”. According to Senator Kevin de Leone, a Democrat who sponsored the bill:

With this measure, we will lead the nation in bringing standards and protocols across the board so we can create an environment that’s healthy, that’s conducive for all students, not just for women, but for young men as well too, so young men can develop healthy patterns and boundaries as they age with the opposite sex.

In other words:  “All men are rapists and will be treated as such in a court of law, and will be presumed guilty unless found innocent.”

…And Justice For All (but not you)

Justice is lost
Justice is raped
Justice is gone
Pulling your strings
Justice is done
Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim, so true, so real

Metallica, …And Justice For All

Animal rights activists have found a new target:  James Hetfield, lead singer and the brains behind the legendary metal band Metallica. Continue reading

The Modern Liberal Part II – Unreasonable Members

See Rule #3.

Visual Aid to Rule #3.

The title could also be “Unreasonable Members (a.k.a the majority of liberals)”, because one does not step into the cesspool of liberalism without embracing a certain level of lunacy. I originally intended to write this post as a short follow-up to The Modern Liberal Part I – Reasonable Members, but I quickly realized that I wasn’t entirely sure how to approach unreasonable liberals.

The more I thought about the issue, the more I questioned even the existence of “reasonable” liberals. Perhaps they’re out there, just hiding in their homes to avoid the negative stereotypes associated with their crazy ilk. If so, I’ve never really met any. In my experience, any liberals who appeared rational on the surface eventually revealed a crazy side once you dug deep enough or hit a particularly sensitive topic.

Where Market Equilibrium and Coed Prostitution Meet

Seeking-Arrangement

I stumbled upon this interesting article today, ironically just one week after writing about the sexual marketplace:  Sugar daddy website has coeds justifying prostitution. Apparently young beautiful (and female) coeds at big expensive colleges can paste their biographical information up on a web site and offer their company — and presumably other services — in exchange for cold, hard cash.

Incentives, Marriage, and Economics

marriage-supply-demand

America’s marriage rate has been on the decline for the past 50 years, leading esteemed sociologists, politicians, and economists to start evaluating the marketplace of marriage to determine the root cause behind our society’s sudden lapse into matrimonial apathy. Even the brains behind my favorite podcast, Freakonomics, have devoted their past two episodes to a discussion on why anybody should marry. Continue reading

An Open Letter to Southwest Airline’s Executives

Southwest Airlines

Moments ago, I sent the e-mail below to the executives of Southwest Airlines.  If I receive a response, I will also post it here.

To whom it may concern:

First, I would like to take a moment to tell you that Southwest Airlines has the best customer service and airline business model in the U.S.  I flew with you several weeks ago to Las Vegas and had a fantastic experience.  I will also be doing business with you again in a few weeks as my wife and I fly out to Detroit to visit her extended family.  Thanks to your team’s cheerful disposition, ability to explain your policies clearly, and excellent in-flight service, I have become a loyal customer.
 
However, I am dismayed to hear Southwest will be sponsoring the Commission on Presidential Debates this year.   Continue reading
