  • One of these beauties is the lovely black Liberal MP Hedy Fry. The other seven have penis.

    Are there any black conservatives in Canada?

    Sure, her:


    As a conservative party staffer, her duties include showing major cleavage, serving drinks, and mocking one of Canada's few black members of parliament...really just doing anything to please her blonde-haired-blue-eyed bosses:

    MP Candice Hoeppner (right) with her staffer dressed as Liberal MP Hedy Fry

    If that's what the conservative party does to a black chick who's into them...what're they gonna do to the rest of us? Ask my girl, these fingers were made for fucking, not handling fine crystal.

    The time has come for strategic voting. No more voting for third parties, no matter how charismatic their leaders are. I voted for Joe Pantalone in the Toronto election, and we ended up with that fat farm fugitive Rob Ford. If I vote for the Bloc Québécois again, we'll end up with a conservative majority in parliament. Damn it! I really like Gilles Duceppe...

    I hope Muammar Gaddafi understands that Qatar and UAE are not after his country's oil !!!!!! #libya #qatar #uae

    25 Mar via web


    That is only a secondary concern:


    Source: Reuters (March 28, 2011) & Reuters (March 30, 2011)
    A senior Libyan rebel official said on Sunday Gulf oil producer Qatar had agreed to market crude oil produced from east Libyan fields that are no longer in the control of Muammar Gaddafi.

    Ali Tarhouni, a US-based academic and exile opposition figure, was designated last week by the Benghazi-based national council to steer its financial and oil policy.

    "We contacted the oil company of Qatar and thankfully they agreed to take all the oil that we wish to export and market this oil for us," said Tarhouni.

    A U.S. Treasury Department official said crude oil sales by rebels would not be subject to U.S. sanctions.


    This is the primary concern:


    Source: Wired (February 22, 2011)
    Al-Jazeera is in discussions with Comcast, the nation’s largest cable operator, about bringing the network’s English-language channel to millions of U.S. homes, the Qatar-based news service said Tuesday.

    The Comcast meeting was the first move in a new push by Al-Jazeera to get on U.S. cable systems, which have been reluctant to carry the Qatar-based news network. A Comcast spokesperson declined to comment on the talks.

    It’s quite a turn of events for Al-Jazeera, which until its widely praised coverage of the unrest in Egypt was something of a pariah in the United States. During the Iraq War, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld branded the network’s reporting of civilian casualties as “vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable.”

    Now, the White House is watching Al-Jazeera alongside CNN.


    Obama, Clinton, Comcast, & the defense department are growing increasingly pleased with the new & improved Qatar & Al-Jazeera.

    Important facts about your abs & spine

  • I don't know why my mom saves all this, and don't you dare imply anything.

    No, it's not gay porn. Up there's a collection of my old gym notes, article clippings, & books. Even though it was the new millenium, we didn't have the interwebs at my crib. So I'd cut out kinesiology knowledge from the racks of my public library & corner store. Yes, fuck those librarians & Korean grocers.

    For people like me, who accepted the wisdom of countless ghostwritten Flex magazine articles (seriously, why does Nasser El Sonbaty sound like Gore Vidal?)...Dr. Stuart McGill sounded outright sacrilegious:

    Source: University of Waterloo & New York Times
    Dr. Stuart M. McGill is a professor of spine biomechanics at the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON, Canada). His advice is often sought by governments, corporations, legal experts and elite athletes and teams from around the world.


    First off, let's get this out of the way. This video & blog post deal with abdominal strength training, not the appearance of a six pack. Understand this lardo, you still have abs. They're hidden under that McDonalds playpen you call a gut. To get rid of that fat & make your abs magically appear, you need to create a caloric deficit (meaning you burn more than you eat). Starving yourself won't cut it, because that will cause your body to go cannibal & feed on your own muscles. Sorry, but Fatty McGoo must run. No amount of spine-killing crunches or spine-preserving curls can substitute for the huffing & puffing of 6 days worth of 40 minute jogs.

    Now back to the issue at hand. When I share this with friends, the denial is astounding. Motherfuckers will not think twice when someone suggests something "extreme & risky"...as evidenced by muscle injuries & child porn charges. But ask them to try something "safe & effective", they demand unquestionable scientific evidence.

    For that science, see Dr. McGill's book 'Low Back Disorders'. All the experiments, diagrams, & statistics are in there. I'll share one quick highlight here:

    Source: Low Back Disorders (Page 88-89)
    The traditional sit-up imposes approximately 3300N (about 730 lb) of compression on the spine (Axler and McGill, 1997). The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) (1981) has set the action limit for low back compression at 3300N; repetitive loading above this level is linked with higher injury rates in workers. Yet this is imposed on the spine with each repetition of the sit-up!

    Many recommend performing sit-ups with the knees bent, the theory being that the psoas is realigned to reduce compressive loading, or perhaps the psoas is shortened on the length-tension relationship so that the resulting forces are reduced. After examining both of these ideas, we found them to be untenable. Given that the sit-up imposes such a large compression load on the spine, regardless of the leg's being bent or straight, the issue is not which type of sit-up should be recommended. Rather, sit-ups should not be performed at all by most people. Far better ways exist to preserve the abdominal muscle challenge while imposing lower spine loads.

    The book also reveals another important point: There isn't a lower & upper rectus abdominis. For example, I'd do crunches for my upper abs & frog kicks for my lower abs. Instead, the book explains, the abdominal region should be viewed as a cable "with active tension along its entire length". Meaning, you fire one bead & it travels up & down.

    Learning this was a fucking godsend, because I'd have to drive to the gym to use roman chairs & hanging rigs on my core days. Now I hit the living room & perform McGill's modified ab curl. I do them with the elbows raised slightly above the ground & tongue touching the roof of the mouth. These remove the cheats of the shoulders & neck.

    I never bothered with obliques before. And I abandoned the lower back deadlift long ago because I'd always end up jerking & making things worse. So it's been great reincorporating these groups using the side bridge (obliques) & bird dog (back).

    The side bridge & bird dog are especially dangerous. It's very important that you use the hips & surrounding glutes to navigate the movements. Should you bring your back into it, you will hurt yourself.

    The ideal thing to do is get a copy of Dr. McGill's DVD 'Ultimate Back'. Whether you're a lay person looking to be safe, or you live at the gym...it's worth the price. The second disc explores each of these exercises individually. You get detailed information on form along with great visual demonstrations.

  • 2003: The year you couldn't fight or fuck without night-vision.

    Remember the Iraq invasion in 2003? Though I was a yungin', I can still recall the sights and sounds as my TV broadcast an endless parade of overnight human rights activists, feminists, & democrats. They all agreed, other peoples children needed to act, and act now. Without Paris Hilton, the year would have lacked serious thought.

    Remember 'Control Room' from 2004? The documentary introduced us to a young network called Al-Jazeera. They challenged dogma & gave voice to collateral damage. I wanted to date an Arab reporter & get her integrity to rub off on me.
    Before we go any further, journalists in the northern hemisphere can relax. You're so vain, you probably think this song's about you. It isn't. Seriously, like 63% of us are proud your profession hires so many dyslexics.
    No, this is about young jeezy. Actually, it's 2011 and jeezy's not young anymore. They've found their Iraq in Libya, their Saddam in Gadhafi, and their Pentagon in Qatar. As we shoot the shit, so do Qatar & NATO. To be fair, everyone knows Arab fighter jets are programmed to fly away from Israel and towards Muslims.

    Throughout the day, Al-Jazeera's interview & debate segments are handed over to various Libyan exiles from the US & the UK. When a reporter appears in Benghazi, he's sure to be accompanied by helpless victims or victorious heroes. When a reporter appears in Tripoli, she's sure to be alone and highly skeptical of civilian casualties.
    Al-Jazeera sent Anita McNaught to report from the parallel universe that seems to be Tripoli.

    During an early report, McNaught showed off the aftermath of a NATO attack on the presidential compound. She suggested the Libyan government themselves caused the damage - as the rubble lacked sufficient smoke & fire. Within minutes, American hospitals began treating 911 truthers for debilitating erections.

    In a later report, McNaught showed off pictures of dead bodies at a morgue. This time, she entertained the possibility of NATO culpability - because the bodies were sufficiently "mangled". Quickly enough, she suggested that Bin Ladin Saddam Gadhafi counted his terrorists fedayeen reserves as civilians. By the off-chance that civilians were in the bunch, she repeatedly warned the audience that the images were highly "political" in nature.
    Yes. Al-Jazeera dismissed images of dead Muslims as "political".

    He's a vengeful god. More reason to ignore the little bitch.

  • The United States has already apologized for launching biological attacks on Guatemala. Unfortunately, due to the delay in tort reform, victims have shamelessly launched a class action lawsuit:

    Source: Christian Science Monitor
    An apology is not enough for Guatemalans deliberately infected with syphilis by a US medical team in the 1940s. Five months after the American taxpayer-funded medical experiment came to light, victims have brought a class-action lawsuit against the US government seeking compensation for resulting health problems.

    The court brief charges that US public health doctors hired prostitutes diagnosed with syphilis or gonorrhea to have sexual relations with soldiers, prison inmates, and psychiatric patients in Guatemala with the intention of spreading the disease. Once the unknowing subjects were diagnosed with illnesses, the US medical team tested them for potential cures, including penicillin. Orphaned Guatemalan children as young as 6 years old were used as an uninfected test group, according to the suit.

    Today, an hour-long investigation by the erotic domestic affairs publication VeeeATCH! has uncovered a startling follow-up. Through confidential chronic inhalation & contacts at google search, investigative journalist P-ublic E-nemy discovered that - in 2004 - Brazilian President Lula da Silva instructed his intelligence services to avenge the attacks on Guatemala.

    The revelation is surprising, as the president is considered "a harmless moderate" in the north, and "our furry little Ewok" in the south. Aides say Lula resented being depicted as a little pussy. Avenging the attacks on Guatemala would prove that he was, in fact, more like "Yoda" - 20 lbs of pure...fuck...you...up!

    The effort codenamed 'Operation Tchutchuca' targeted Southern California. Its aims were to launch retaliatory biological attacks, cause mass panic, & inflict significant economic losses. As this secret document reveals, all the aims were met:

    Source: Associated Press
    Flush with dollars, American porn film directors swoop into Brazil for its exotic and uninhibited women, dazzling tropical backdrops and cheap production costs -- a phenomenon that has turned South America's largest country into a prime destination for adult film outsourcing.

    But producers chose the country with the most people in the hemisphere with HIV or AIDS after the United States. They usually head to Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro -- home to 60 percent of the 540,000 Brazilians with HIV or AIDS, according to a recent World Bank study.

    The infection of an American porn star with HIV last month after shooting unprotected sex scenes with more than a dozen Brazilian women is sending shock waves through the industry's California heartland.

    Darren James, the American actor who contracted the virus, apparently in Brazil, performed with 13 actresses after returning to the United States before a blood test two weeks ago showed he was HIV-positive.

    One partner, Lara Roxx, also tested HIV positive. Since then, more than 50 performers who had contact with the two or their on-screen sex partners have been barred by the American industry from performing pending new tests.

    Thirty companies halted production, virtually shuttering a business based in California's San Fernando Valley that generates at least $4.4 billion annually.

    Also uncovered are audio intercepts of elite funk force Furacao 2000, relaying key offensive instructions:

  • The extent of Al Giordano's gorilla training

    On February 23 2011, Al Giordano decided he was a strategic genius:

    Source: The Field
    [Skipping the first 11 paragraphs of shameless, rambling, self-promotion...]

    Somewhat less skillful, on Castro’s part, has been his ham-handed attempt to shift the attention from the atrocity underway to a hypothetical one: His statement that, “the United States is totally unconcerned about peace in Libya and will not hesitate to give NATO the order to invade that rich country, possibly in a matter of hours or a few days.”

    First of all, what could NATO possibly do to the Libyan people that Gaddafi isn’t already doing?

    ...these events indicate that it is not NATO or foreign powers that will most quickly dispose of the despot, but the very people he has governed for 42 years.

    Today is March 20 2011 & US Vice Adm. William Gortney is showing off Pentagon video of NATO's various attacks on Libya.

    When asked about NATO's killing of Libyan ground troops, he responded: "If Libyan infantry are moving onto opposition forces in Libya, they are under attack."

    When asked if NATO would stop rebels from attacking immobile Libyan troops, he responded: "At this point I'm not ready to step outside the messaging we've put out."

    Al-Jazeera has just reported smoke arising from the Libyan presidential palace, and explosions all around the capital of Tripoli. The result of NATO aerial bombings.

    We thank Al Giordano for his ham-handed attempt at out-thinking a man who's outlasted 9 American presidents.

    P.S. If you think I couldn't have done any better, see what I wrote on February 22 2011 (one day before Al posted his piece). At least my self-promotion comes under 10 paragraphs, and contains truth.

    I predicted this shit, it's 2pacalypse!

    Many of you thought this was some kind of cheap rhetorical flourish...a sad attempt to appeal to young white males across the suburbs of America.

    Well, you woke up today & realized you thought wrong:

    Rapper Wyclef Jean has been shot in the hand in his native Haiti.

    The former Fugees star, who lives in the U.S., travelled to the country earlier this week to lend his support to presidential candidate Michel Martelly as he prepares for the final round of elections against former First Lady Mirlande Manigat on Sunday.

    Reports emerged shortly after midnight on Sunday suggesting Jean's car had come under attack and was peppered with bullets as he was being driven through the city of Port-au-Prince with hip-hop pal Busta Rhymes and record executive Jimmy Rosemond.

    Yes, that's right. Wyclef, who Tupac kindly asked to fuck off, was shot. While he was in the company of Jimmy Rosemond (aka Jimmy Henchman), who allegedly ordered the New York shooting of Tupac.

    Ben Bernanke showed up in my comments & said: "you're a funny cunt! Not to mention informative as well.". Like a typical chairman of the federal reserve, he ignores the fact that I'm also prophetic.

    It was always a question of when, not if, they'd win big. The Arcade Fire took album of the year, defeating peroxide abusers Lady Gaga & Eminem.

    If you're not caught up, you're in luck. Skip Wikipedia & those shitty wire writeups. There's one article that sums up all this drama & it was written by Dr. Paul Farmer. Just so you understand how fucking credible this guy is, here's a quick bio:

    Source: Better World Heroes
    While conducting anthropology research in Haiti, Dr. Farmer was shocked by the lack of medical care that the poor received. In 1987, he and some friends started a charity hospital in central Haiti, providing free health care to the poor. Partners in Health has grown into an international organization with projects in Peru, Russia and Rwanda. In addition to overseeing these projects, Dr. Farmer is also a professor of Medical Anthropology at Harvard and an attending physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

    His article in the London Review of Books takes you from Haiti's past to the present. It explains Aristide's rise & removal. I'll share some excerpts here, but do head over to the source...because it's like I said, this is THE article you need to get caught up:

    Source: The London Review Of Books
    I learned about Haiti’s history while working on medical projects on the country’s central plateau. When I first travelled there in 1983, the Duvalier family dictatorship had been in place for a quarter of a century. There was no dissent. The Duvaliers and their military dealt ruthlessly with any opposition, while the judiciary and the rest of the world looked the other way. Haiti was already known as the poorest country in the Western world, and those who ran it argued that force was required to police deep poverty.

    Haitians are still living with the legacy of the slave trade and of the revolt that finally removed the French. The revolt began in 1791, and more than a decade of war followed; France’s largest expeditionary force, led by General Leclerc, Napoleon’s brother-in-law, was sent to put down the rebellion. As the French operation flagged, the slave general, Toussaint l’Ouverture, was invited to a parley. He was kidnapped and taken away to a prison in the Jura.

    By the late 19th century, the United States had eclipsed France as a force in Haitian affairs. A US military occupation (1915-34) brought back corvée labour and introduced bombing from the air, while officials in Washington created the institutions that Haitians would have to live with: the army, above all, which now claims to have the country ‘in its hands’, was created by an act of the US Congress. Demobilised by Aristide in 1995, it never knew a non-Haitian enemy.

    Aristide’s elevation from slum priest to presidential candidate took place against a background of right-wing death squads and threatened military coups. He rose quickly in the eyes of Haitians, but his stock plummeted in the United States. The New York Times, which relies heavily on informants who can speak English or French, had few kind words for him. ‘He’s a cross between the Ayatollah and Fidel,’ one Haitian businessman was quoted as saying. ‘If it comes to a choice between the ultra-left and the ultra-right, I’m ready to form an alliance with the ultra-right.’

    Did the US and France have a hand in Aristide’s removal? Were he and his wife being held against their will? Most of Aristide’s claims, initially disputed by US officials from Noriega to Donald Rumsfeld, are now acknowledged to be true.

    The salvage operation came to an end last month as ‘rebels’ continued to ‘take cities’. I work in these ‘cities’ and I saw the rebels’ modus operandi. They came in, shot the police – who usually numbered no more than two or three – and left. Only a similarly equipped counterforce could have stopped them. The beleaguered government appealed for help in the Security Council, but this was delayed by the Bush administration – delayed long enough for the government to fall, or be pushed out.

    This week Turkey stood firm against military intervention and economic sanctions against the regime of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

    Turkish projects in Libya are valued at $15.3 billion, and the trade between the countries amounted to an estimated $2.4 billion in 2010. According to Ankara's export planners, Turkey's arms trade in the Middle East and North Africa has not been affected by the turmoil. Defence exports are expected to total $1.5 billion this year.

    South Africa had a legal obligation not to trade in conventional arms with states engaged in repression, aggression or terrorism.

    More than 100 sniper rifles and more than 50,000 rounds of ammunition may have been exported to Libya in late 2010. Other weapons systems sold appeared to include 40mm multiple grenade launchers, Hercules C130 aircraft, and armoured personnel carriers.
