Missing the Old Polaroid Camera

So, this weekend this happened.
Nude Jennifer Lawrence photos leaked by hacker who claims to have 'private pictures of 100 A-listers'
Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak.
An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple's online storage system iCloud.
The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.
More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and TV host Cat Deeley.~snip~
There used to be a time when people wanted to take nude pictures the go to device was the old Polaroid camera. Snap and shoot and then after a few minutes you'd have a pic that you could store in a shoe box under the bed for whatever reason you wanted to keep them for.
The only way they would end up in the hands of others is if you gave them away. But even then the distribution would be pretty limited.
Nowadays with digital cameras and cloud storage there is a loss of control over your private photos and documents like there has never been before.
No matter how you feel about hackers the truth is hackers are going to hack and if you're anybody famous your intimate fun time photographs have the very real potential of getting out there in the wild on the internet.
Once that happens, no matter what you do, they'll be out there forever.
Advising people to not take nude photos of themselves or others is useless advice, mostly because shortly after photography was invented people started taking nude photos.
But, maybe if you're going to do it you might want to consider something that you have more control over.
Who knows....maybe now there'll be a surge in sales of Polaroid cameras?

Biased Propaganda at PBS

In another example of clear leftist/progressive bias in the media and one we as taxpayers actually pay for, PBS s going to air a propaganda piece called "After Tiller".
Pro-Life Group Asks Tax-Funded PBS to Cancel Film “Humanizing” Docs Who Do Third-Trimester Abortions
Brown says “After Tiller” was funded in large part by pro-abortion groups and lists Planned Parenthood and NARAL as primary outreach partners.
According to Media Impact Partners, the film’s production team’s goals include changing the view of Americans in favor of late-term abortion providers and against legislation that bans late-term abortions. The filmmakers also hope that medical students will request abortion training be made available in their curricula.
There's some "hard hitting" truth tellers right there.
PBS, along with all the other liberal/commie/progressive so called "news media" seems to forget that Kermit Gosnell is also "After Tiler" and he too preformed late term abortions. Some how I don't think that fact will make it into the documentary.
I guess it would be a little tough to humanize the butcher of Philadelphia but there's no doubt in my mind that if Planned Parenthood or NARAL could then they would have.
This how PBS uses our tax dollars and it's way past time the government defund this obvious propaganda tool of the leftist/progressive media.
Ending support of the alphabet channels is as simple as turning them off, being forced to subsidize left wing talking points by government is unacceptable.

A Voice in the Wilderness

One of the hardest things to do nowadays it seems is to not only tell truths but to listen to what is said and honestly consider it.

 Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;' Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’
( --  Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”~snip~
Probably the saddest thing happening right now,because of the media enablers and cowardly or complicit politicians, is society seems to be hell bet on failing people with this disorder. By encouraging their delusions and enabling them to continue on to the point of mutilation of these individuals bodies they are actually contributing to suicides.
The refusal to treat or recognize the underlying disorder will be just another way that liberal/progressives have failed to advocate for another minority leaving them to fend for themselves in society.

Recycling Jimmy Carter

Sometimes I think that whatever Obama is paying his advisers it's obviously to much.
The parallels between Obama and Jimmy Carter become more appaernt every day.

Jimmy Carter was a do nothing president who's foreign policy was basically "hands off" whatever will be will be.
He stood by and watched the Iranian revolution unfold allowing 52 U.S. diplomats to be held as hostages in Iran.
That was after he sat back and did nothing to temper run away inflation, unemployment and rising energy costs to cripple this country.
Towards the end of his first term in office he finally ordered the U.S. military to attempt a rescue of the Iranian hostages to try and bolster his sagging poll numbers because he knew the American public was getting tired of the "malaise" he inflicted on us.
Like everything else the peanut farmer touched it was a disaster.

Now after the beheading of an American reporter,James Foley, it comes out that Obama ordered a rescue operation to liberate him and other hostages.
It failed.
Obviously Obama's advisers don't pay much attention to history. Comparing these two "rescue" operations is a no brainer and just confirms the notion that Obama is at least as bad if not worse than Jimmy Carter. The sad part is that it only took one term to realize what a failure Carter was, we have to suffer through 2 terms to get it about Obama.

Jesse to the Rescue!!!

While Obama calls for peace and calm in Ferguson,MO. race hustlers Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson run to the town to shake the racial tree and see what kind of violence they can rattle out of it.

Rev. Jesse Jackson: Like a ‘state execution’
Civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson on Friday likened the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer to a “state execution.”

“[H]ow many times was he shot?” Jackson asked on MSNBC, in a series of rhetorical questions about Brown. “And where was he shot? And why was he lying in the street for several hours? That was kind of a state execution.”

He went on to link Brown’s killing with other incidents of unarmed black men killed by police, including 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012 and 22-year-old Oscar Grant in California in 2009. “There’s a pattern of this behavior.”~snip~
Like that kind of rhetoric is really going to calm things down.
Others have said it better than I could but I'm wondering where all the outrage is concerning the youth being gunned down by each other in major cities like Chicago,New York and even Washington,DC?
You don't see reverends Al and Jesse racing to those areas and firing off provocative rhetoric about those deaths.
I think that it's mostly because it would be harder for them to shake down those cities as opposed to smaller police departments in fly over country.
They're going for perception as opposed to solving problems. These communities need to turn their backs on these two professional provocateurs and tell then to pound sand so they can work out their own problems.

Some Day There'll be an App for That

O'Reilly may have something about people becoming increasingly dependent on various devices nowadays.

‘Siri, I Need to Hide My Roommate': Murder Suspect Allegedly Asked iPhone For Help Hiding Body
Authorities say that a Florida college student murdered his roommate and used his iPhone’s Siri application to ask where he should hide the body.
Pedro Bravo is accused of killing Christian Aguilar in 2012 over a love triangle situation.
Authorities allege Bravo told the Siri application, “I need to hide my roommate," at about the same time Aguilar disappeared. His phone gave answers back that stated, "What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps."~snip~
The fact that the bozo didn't realize that every time he uses the thing he leaves a digital foot print that the government can access shows just how technologically stunted some people are in spite of their dependence on it  I'll bet Siri knew that.
