Justin Bieber to Launch New Nail Polish, Collective Intelligence Drops Significantly

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Justin BieberI love living in America. I really do. I think being an American and having a lot of the freedoms I do is awesome. But I have recently seen something that I think could make me want to leave America and go live somewhere where this doesn’t exist, I’m talking about Justin Bieber nail polish.

No, you are not slowly slipping into insanity and no, you have not stumbled into an alternate dimension where everything that is terrible is real, what you read was true. The teen “sensation” will launch his very own line of nail polish this winter with Nicole by OPI.

The line will be known as “One Less Lonely Girl” (or one more reason to hate Justin Bieber) and will include six different shades that all have titles “inspired” by Bieber’s “hit” songs. The six colors are: One Less Lonely Glitter (lavender), Prized Possession Purple (grape), Give Me the First Dance (silver), Me + Blue (dark blue), OMB! (bright red) and Step to the Beat of My Heart (heart-shaped glitter).

Wow… is this what our world is coming to? Justin Bieber nail polish? You would think that with all the crap this kid gets about being on the feminine side of the spectrum that the last thing he would want to do is slap his name on a bottle of fingernail polish. I mean, c’mon!? Have a little self respect! The fact that our country is so obsessed with this child gives me serious doubts about our intelligence and our critical evaluation of what passes as good music these days.

Being the classy Hollywood “celebrity” that he is, it is only fitting that he launch his polish at a classy store. So “One Less Lonely Girl” will exclusively launch this Winter at Walmart with other stores like Target and Sears following after that. Very classy Bieber, very classy indeed.

Well, it looks like all you “Beliebers” out there have a crappy gift to give each other for Christmas.  You can check out three of the colors here if you want to, just in case you don’t believe me that this is real. You may be thinking that this is Bieber’s first prank as the reported new host of “Punk’d” but that would only make sense in logical society. No, this is real and may God help us all.

Supreme Court Rules Westboro Baptist Protesters Protected by Free Speech

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Westboro Baptist ChurchThe Supreme Court ruled earlier this week that the protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church have the right to picket near military funerals, but did make it clear that local and state governments can limit how close they can get to the actual cemeteries.

The Justices of the Supreme Court ruled in a controversial 8-1 ruling that the guarantee of freedom of speech outlined in the Constitution permits members of the Kansas church to congregate near the funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq singing hymns and carrying signs with such sayings as “Thank God for Dead Soldiers”.

However, the ruling was very narrow and only involved the financial damages in the case. Chief Justice John Roberts stated that the ruling did not impact a lot of the laws in 44 states which restrict how close protesters can get to the funeral site.

According to Roberts, “To the extent these laws are content neutral, they raise very different questions from the tort verdict at issue in this case.” The Justices tossed out an award of $5 million in damages that a federal court had previously awarded Albert Snyder whose son, Matthew, was a Marine who was killed in 2006. Matthew was not gay and was buried at a Catholic church in Maryland.

“Simply put, the church members had the right to be where they were,” Roberts wrote in the court’s opinion. “Given that the church’s speech was at a public place on a matter of public concern, that speech is entitled to ‘special protection’ under the First Amendment.”

Roberts also wrote that “speech is powerful. It can stir people into action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow, and –as it did here — inflict great pain. On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker.”

Joining on Robert’s side of the majority were Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Stephen H. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayer, Elena Kagan and Anthony Kennedy.

In a separate opinion, Breyer wrote that “a state can sometimes regulate picketing, even picketing on matters of public concern. The Court’s ruling does not hold or imply that the state is always powerless to provide private individuals with necessary protections.”

At the funeral of Matthew Snyder, the protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church were about 1,000 feet away from the funeral. The sole Justice who voted against the protests, Justice Samuel Alito, wrote that “our profound national commitment to free and open debate is not a license for the vicious verbal assault that occurred in this case.”

Alito also pointed out that Snyder was not a public figure and only wanted to bury his son in peace. Alito argued that the court’s majority protected the rights of the protesters to “brutalize” Snyder. “In order to have a society in which public issues can be openly and vigorously debated, it is not necessary to allow the brutalization of innocent victims,” Alito argued.

While I personally believe in the right to freedom of speech, I believe that the Westboro Baptist Church has crossed a serious line and something has to be done about it.

Former Bush Official Calls Glenn Beck Criticism “Absurd”

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Glenn BeckThe Egyptian uprising hit America like a bullet and left in much the same way, especially after all the news about the Gaddafi stuff happening in Lybia reached our shores. However, while it was here, the Egyptian conflict was the talk of the town, garnering media attention from all of the big name outlets and, like every big news story to hit the states, Glenn Beck had his theories about what was really going on over in Egypt.

Beck featured a former Bush administration official on his show back in February to discuss Beck’s elaborate conspiracy theory surrounding Egypt. However, things didn’t go as planned for the Bush official as he was later reported as saying that the Fox host’s comments were  “absurd”.

James K. Glassman, who served as Under Secretary of State in 2008, helped create the Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM), an organization which, according to Glassman, “aims to support and sustain campaigns for nonviolent social change that harness 21st century tools to safeguard human rights, promote good governance and foster civic engagement.”

On his show, Glenn Beck “suggested” that the Alliance for Youth Movements was tied to “violent Islamic extremism” and that our State Department is “aiding groups that want to use the Egyptian protests” in order to “create an Islamic caliphate.”

When Glassman was reached for a comment by Media Matters, Glassman stated that he had reviewed different video portions of Beck’s show in addition to related material on Glenn Beck’s website. Glassman called Beck’s comments and theories “literally absurd”  and also added that “it was like the World turned upside down on me.”

According to Glassman, “The work we were doing was to advance the cause of anti-violence and freedom, and if we played any small role in events in Egypt, that advances those causes. I would think that Glenn Beck would stand for those goals.”

Glassman is currently the executive director of the George W. Bush Institute at the Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, Texas. Glassman served as a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute before joining the State Department.
