IF OBGYN’S  HAVE TROUBLE FINDING IT THEN WE CAN PRETTY WELL SAY THAT GAFFENSBERG WAS FULL OF SHIT.

IT DOES NOT EXIST

OLE GAFF BOY DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THE CLIT EXTENDS TO THE VULVA AND IS THE SOURCE OF THAT PLEASURE IN A WOMAN.

So, what does the “G” stand for in G-spot? Maybe it’s “G” as in Holy Grail, because a Florida gynecologist contends that he has finally found it.But several experts are highly skeptical of Ostrzenski’s assertion, saying his paper is long on speculation and headline-grabbing potential and short on proven scientific research.The existence of the G-spot is a matter of intense debate. It was actually named after scientist Ernest Grafenberg, author of the landmark 1950 article, “The Role of Urethra in Female Orgasm.”

.”The bill is designed to protect the rights of Arizona citizens and prevent encroachment on those rights by international institutions,”

Senate Bill 1507 was passed by the state Senate last month and received an initial House affirmation Wednesday.

Burges told msnbc.com in an email. “We have three branches of government and when one branch preempts the process through executive orders, the balance of power is lost in the process.

It is that simple — no more, no less.

“At a March 15 hearing on the bill, Burges said an executive order signed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1993 started the implementation of Agenda 21 after the Senate refused to pass a treaty ratifying it.”

Any way you want to describe it, Agenda 21 is a direct attack on the middle class and working poor” through “social engineering of our citizens” in “every aspect” of their lives,” she told the hearing.

But House Minority Leader Chad Campbell, D-Phoenix, has a different view.“It’s the most poorly crafted bill in this state,” Campbell told msnbc.com. “It’s so broad and overreaching, we’re not sure what it could impact.”

(WHAT THE FUCK DOES CHAD THINK AGENDA 21 DOES?)

Among the U.N. declaration’s non-binding principles are calls for sustainable development, environmental protection, eradicating poverty, eliminating unsustainable production and consumption patterns, economic growth and the participation of women in government decisions.

(NON BINDING MY ASS JUST LOOK AT EACH NEW GENERAL PLAN IN CALIFORNIA FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS.  THIS HAS STOLE MORE WEALTH FROM RURAL LANDOWNERS THAN ANY OTHER ACT IN HISTORY)

“We wouldn’t be able to use CFL light bulbs in state buildings because that would be considered energy efficiency,” Campbell said.Campbell also said that the state’s Economic Security Department, which handles unemployment and welfare benefits, could be outlawed because it has to do with eradicating poverty.Also, Arizona universities have sustainability programs that could be banned if the bill becomes law, Campbell warned.Arizona State University has a School of Sustainability, Northern Arizona University offers a master’s in sustainable communities, and the University of Arizona has an environment and sustainability portal.

via U.S. News – Agenda 21: Arizona close to passing anti-UN-sustainability bill.

Arizona voters could get a chance this year to tell the federal government to fuck off and get out of what they do with their air, land, water and wildlife.

Without comment, the state Senate gave preliminary approval Monday to enact a constitutional provision with the state declaring its “sovereign and exclusive authority and jurisdiction” of all that exists within its boundaries. The only exception would be Indian and military reservations and federal buildings.

THE REAL QUESTION HERE IS IF THERE WAS CIVIL WAR…

WHERE WOULD YOU STAND?

WOULD YOU FIGHT?

ON WHAT SIDE?

But Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, first added her own embellishments to the measure which already has been approved by the House: It would alter — retroactive to 1912 (do you know why) — a constitutional provision where Arizona, as part of the conditions for becoming a state, agreed to the federal law about what lands are granted to the state.

The measure now needs a final Senate vote, with the last word on HCR 2004 up to voters in November.

Allen, however, said voter approval would not mean Arizona is reneging on the agreement it made with the federal government to gain statehood. And she said changing the terms does not endanger Arizona’s status as a state.

She said the deal included an implicit promise by the federal government that the lands it claimed in 1912 were only temporary.

“Then the federal government would dispose of those lands to pay for the national debt,” she said. But in Arizona and some other Western states, Allen said, that did not happen.

“The federal government’s the one that betrayed us,” she said.

“We are not equal to other states because we do not have control of the lands,” Allen continued. “We never were made a true state.”

Figures from the Arizona Land Department put

42 percent of the state’s 72.9 million acres — about 114,300 square miles — in federal hands. Another

28 percent includes reservations, with

13 percent held in trust by the state and

17 percent in private hands.

Allen said a fight could be avoided if the federal government sells off its property. That would put more into private hands, making the property not only taxable but then allowing the state, through the Legislature, to decide what is the best use of the property.

What that also means, she acknowledged, is uranium mining near the Grand Canyon and all the permits and title to the land needed by Resolution Copper to start mining in southeast Arizona. It also would mean the state gets to give the go-ahead for forestry projects on what is now federal land to promote the timber industry and prevent future wildfires.

None of the Democrats in the Senate spoke out against the measure. But Minority Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe, said that silence should not be seen as approval but instead as just a recognition that this is one of so many similar measures.

“I guess we’ve become a little accustomed to these unconstitutional HCRs,” he said. “Maybe it dulls our senses … because there are just so many of them.”

Measure would let Arizona declare its sovereignty – East Valley Tribune: Politics.

Johnson BRAT on the loose

The officer’s police report says Johnson began tearing items off the school principal’s office walls and was throwing furniture. The report says Johnson knocked over a shelf that injured the principal.

Johnson also was reportedly biting a doorknob and attempting to break a glass frame while jumping on top of a paper shredder.

“She has mood swings some days, which all of us had mood swings some days,” Johnson’s mother Constance Ruff told WMAZ. “I guess that was just one of her bad days.”

After Johnson was handcuffed, she was taken to the local police station and charged with simple assault and damage to property. However, because of her young age, Johnson will reportedly not be prosecuted.

“A 6-year-old in kindergarten. They don’t have no business calling the police and handcuffing my child,” said Earnest Johnson, Salecia’s father.

SURE THEY DO FOOL , First this Johnson product attacks two kids, then she disobeys all school authorities and tears up the place, then she disobeys uniformed officers and continues tearing up the place.

Hey no TAZER!!!!

BUT SINCE SHE HAS DARK SKIN: Johnson’s parents are trying to organize a community protest against the officer’s actions, including reported plans to contact civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

On a legalizing prostitution discussion at the NYT site Stella Marr has shown just how much journalism she has learned by citing NYC street skanks as authorities on legal brothels in Nevada.

It is pitiful watching someone embarrass themselves like that.

Like I heard from some guys from Afghanistan that the CIA is actually planting those IUD’s.

ANYTHING sexual between two consenting adults is legal. (without compensation)

A woman can be paid to have semen put in her and grow a baby for someone else.

A woman can pay a man to enter her vagina and kill a growing baby.

Nevada’s Legal Brothels Are Coercive, Too

Stella Marr

Stella Marr is a founder of of Survivors Connect, an international network of trafficking and prostitution survivors. She blogs at “My Body the City: The Secret Life of a Call Girl” and is writing a memoir.

Updated April 20, 2012, 9:18 AM

Well-meaning people who’ve never been commercially sexually exploited often think that legal brothels will protect the women in prostitution from pimps and violent johns. They are mistaken.

In the 10 years I worked in New York City’s sex industry, where the pimps were part of organized crime and could follow through on any threat, I met many women who’d experienced Nevada’s legal brothels. They all preferred the New York sex industry.

If we legalize brothel and escort service pimping we’ll only be giving these predators more power, while we help them protect their cash.

Women who worked in Nevada’s legal brothels said they were like prisons where you have to turn tricks. Rimmed with high-security fencing and an electronic gate, they can look like a detention camp. The women live in lockdown conditions and can’t leave the premises unless they’re accompanied by a male pimp. Living and working in cramped, dark rooms, they’re on call 24 hours a day. This is what happens when the law protects people who profit from commercial sexual exploitation. It’s the ideal business model. It’s the best way to get a woman to turn as many tricks as possible.

Most of the women I knew in the brothels and escort services, had a history of trauma and abuse. I was homeless at the time I entered the life and, had multiple sclerosis. That vulnerability makes them even more easily victimized by pimps. And pimps don’t stop being pimps when you legalize what they do. If we legalize brothels we’ll only be giving these predators more power, while we help them protect their cash.

As the prostitution survivor and activist Natasha Falle has said, “Where there’s high-track prostitutes, escorts, strippers and masseuses; there’s pimp violence.”

MOST of the world has legalized prostitution.  Silly girl.

5 Ways To Keep Your Wife Happy

The international symbol for marriage

1) Eat dinner together everyday.

2) Keep the romance alive with creative little things.

3) Learn to communicate well.

The number one source of conflict is lack of or mis-communication!

4) Practice thinking for two.

5) Never, ever take her for granted.

Not being appreciated is probably one of the worst feelings one can have in a relationship

Now let’s get real…

It is not the mans job to make the wife happy or the wife’s job to make the man happy.

Fairy tales and emotional porn have driven reality out of relationships. The emotional pornography that women read as romance novels places unreal expectations on relationships in the non-fiction world.

This is the source of most conflict in marriages.

Women in all civilized countries now expect to be treated like princesses in the fairy tales they have been told. The goal of all fairy tales is to marry the prince but there is nothing about how to live happily ever after. It is assumed that the prince and his servants will do that for you.

The media programming is that for women to be equal they need to suppress and dominate men not to rise to the level of responsibility and commitment that men must operate at. The divorce and family laws are all so oppressive towards men that what we see now is relationships can go for many years but as soon as the marriage CONTRACT is signed the relationship changes since the woman knows she has the man pressed in the corner with the full force of the state.

While all of the articles points are sound relationship advice for any relationship be it marriage, kids, parents, friends, or business associates the constant whining that men have to make their wives happy is just more of the entitlement attitude that is causing problems. Just look at the so called “international symbol for marriage” that accompanies the article.

There are three billion women on the planet if it is not working . . . . NEXT!

Poor Stacy Knutson of Moorhead had to go through the trouble and expense and filed a lawsuit asking that the Tip/Gift cash be returned to her that she recived on her job.

She said she believes the money was meant as an anonymous gift from someone who knew that she, her husband, and five children were struggling financially.

A Minnesota waitress who says a customer told her to keep a box with $12,000 in it has sued police who later impounded the cash as suspected drug money.

The SP is surprised she was not arrested as a terrorist.  But who knows that may now be in the works since she stood up for herself.

“I do know that the person gave me what was in that to-go bag,” Knutson wrote in the lawsuit filed last month. “Thus as I understand it, it is mine.”

1. The lawsuit says Knutson was working at the Fry’n Pan restaurant when a customer left behind a takeout box.

2. When she tried to return the box, the lady said, “No, I am good, you keep it.” When Knutson opened the box, she found three wads of bills wrapped in rubber bands.

3. Although she desperately needed the money, she decided to call police, her attorney said.

4. Officers told her to wait 90 days in case someone claimed the money.

No one did but police still refused to return the cash, saying it was being held in a drug investigation because it smelled of marijuana.

A few brave demonstrators, including Escondido City Council candidate Carmen Miranda and anti-checkpoint activist Jenifer Leiendecker, held a protest Saturday evening at the intersection of North Broadway and El Norte Parkway.

At the same time, police were holding a Nazi occupation like checkpoint a few blocks east on El Norte Parkway and North Ash Street.

These checkpoints are an abomination occurring on public streets by zealots with no concept of the bill of rights or the constitution of the United States. SP

Escondido Police Chief Jim Maher who dreamed up and put in place these revenue raking-in checkpoints says protesters who have been holding signs alerting drivers to his department’s checkpoints are endangering the community —- by warning off potentially drunken drivers and prompting others to drive recklessly to avoid the stops.

I suppose we could point out where the donuts are being delivered to as a way of warning decent citizens that they are about to be humiliated and shaken down. (Yes the cops have tables set up with coffee and donuts for themselves while they expend little to no effort and call it work.)

In recent weeks, a group of protesters have held signs that read: “Checkpoint,” “White Collar Crime Ahead” and “Car Thieves Ahead.”

The demonstrators say they are exercising their First Amendment right to protest.

But Maher says they are putting people at risk.

Never mind that CHECKPOINTS are FUCKING ILLEGAL and that only NAZIS would implement them!

Now don’t get the SP wrong… illegal immigrants, unlicensed drivers, and drunks must be dealt with.

BUT NOT AT THE COST OF OUR FREEDOM! SP

I think it’s dangerous that they are trying to help drunk drivers avoid the checkpoints,” Maher (nazi?) said.

Maher  said the protesters should find another way to express their opposition to the checkpoints.

(This dick-head should consider the options left when a population is oppressed by a police state)

The protests are the latest development in a long-running dispute between many residents and police over the use of the checkpoints, which the department ramped up in recent years with the excuse of trying to to curb hit-and-run crashes.

Ever hear of border enforcement? PIGS!

Critics say they disproportionately affect illegal immigrants, most of whom are Latino and barred by state law from applying for driver’s licenses.

NOT TO MENTION WHEN YOU ARE TAKING YOU KIDS ON VACATION AND THEY ALL ASK

“WHAT IS THIS DADDY?

WHY ARE THE POLICE STOPPING ALL OF US?

THIS SCARES US,

WILL WE BE OK?

YES, FUCK YOU MAHER AND YOUR NAZI BULLSHIT!

Police said drivers were making unsafe turns to avoid the checkpoint after they saw the protesters.

One driver suddenly veered TURNED into a driveway after passing the protesters’ signs, said Lt. Tom Albergo, who heads the department’s traffic division.

Another driver who made an illegal U-turn also was arrested for driving under the influence, Albergo said.

I wonder if everyone that tried to excerise their rights were arrested for one thing or another.

Vere are yoor Vucking Papers Bitch! Do not defy us! We will give you the hose!

In the area between the protesters and the checkpoint location, eight other drivers were cited Saturday night on a variety of violations, including illegal tinted windows, no license plate lights, turning violations and driving on a suspended driver’s license, Albergo said.

Leidendecker sent an e-mail to Maher on Monday asking the department to remove a news release on its website that implied the protesters were to blame for the reckless drivers.

“Protesters waved signs at motorists and attempted to divert them from the checkpoint ahead,” the news release said.

Maher said he would not remove the news release.

“Sorry, but the info was accurate, and our job is to make the streets safer for everyone, not worry about a politically correct response or staying on the sidelines,” Maher wrote in an e-mail reply to Leidendecker. “Drunk drivers kill people, and those who try to help them avoid arrest are putting all of us in danger.”

Leiendecker blamed police for the reckless drivers.

“They were parked along the streets, parked in the middle of the road with their lights flashing and sitting on the side streets intimidating drivers who may have wanted to turn,” she said. “Escape routes are supposed to be readily available for drivers.”

Under state regulations, police are required to give drivers “an escape route,” or a way to turn away from the checkpoint, said Chris Cochran, a spokesman for the state’s Office of Traffic Safety. However, officers can stop drivers suspected of some violation or who make illegal turns in an attempt to avoid the checkpoint, he said.

During the six-hour checkpoint, 1,450 vehicles were screened, police said. Forty-seven vehicles were sent to secondary inspections, including those belonging to drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Five people were arrested for DUI, including the two drivers who tried to avoid the checkpoint. One other person was cited for possession of marijuana.

Police impounded 15 vehicles; 12 because the drivers were unlicensed.

Leidendecker says the checkpoints are being used primarily as a way to generate revenue for the city and the towing companies. She says the city is illegally profiting from the checkpoints through processing fees that drivers pay to recover their vehicles and $100,000-a-year contracts the city has with four local towing companies.

Cochran said there is no evidence the city has done anything wrong.

The department receives hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants each year from the federal government through the state Office of Traffic Safety to fund its sobriety checkpoint program. On Monday, the department announced it received another $268,000 grant from the Office of Traffic Safety for its efforts.

Five cops that killed in cold blood only have to serve four years with good behavior.

Police gunned down 17-year-old James Brissette and 40-year-old Ronald Madison, who were both unarmed, and wounded four others on Sept. 4, 2005, less than a week after the storm devastated New Orleans.

To cover it up, the officers planted a gun, fabricated witnesses and falsified reports. Defense attorneys have indicated they will appeal.

“Citing witnesses for perjury at this trial would be like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500,” Judge Engelhardt said.

“This judge recognized that the government put liars on the stand to testify and convict other people,” London said.

“This has been a long and painful six-and-a-half years,” said Lance Madison, whose mentally disabled brother, Ronald, was killed On the morning of Sept. 4, when one group of residents was crossing the Danziger Bridge in the city’s Gentilly area to what they perceived as safety until  police arrived.

THEN Lance Madison was arrested on attempted murder charges after police falsely accused him of shooting at the officers on the bridge. He was jailed for three weeks before a judge freed him.

Retired Sgt. Arthur “Archie” Kaufman, who was assigned to investigate the shootings, was convicted of helping orchestrate the cover-up.

“Madison also said he was horrified by Kaufman’s actions and role in the cover-up:

“You tried to frame me, a man you knew was innocent, and send me to prison for the rest of my life … The people of New Orleans and my family are ready for justice.”


Kaufman received six years in prison — a sentence below the federal guidelines. Kaufman wasn’t charged in the shootings.

During a scathing lecture that lasted roughly two hours, Judge Engelhardt questioned the credibility of officers who cut deals and testified against the defendants during last year’s trial.

Judge Engelhardt  sentenced five former police officers to years in prison for the deadly shootings on a New Orleans bridge in the chaotic days following Hurricane Katrina but not before lashing out at prosecutors for allowing others involved to serve lighter penalties for their crimes. The case that wrapped up Wednesday was the centerpiece of a Justice Department push to clean up New Orleans’ police department that has long been tainted with corruption.

U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt expressed frustration that he was bound by mandatory minimum sentencing laws to imprison former Sgts. Kenneth Bowen and Robert Gisevius and former officers Anthony Villavaso and Robert Faulcon for decades when other officers who engaged in similar conduct on the Danziger Bridge — but cut deals with prosecutors — are serving no more than eight years behind bars

Engelhardt also criticized prosecutors for the different ways they charged those who didn’t cooperate with a Justice Department civil rights investigation and those who did. The charges were filed in such a way that they left judges with little discretion in handing out sentences in each set of cases, Engelhardt said.

Faulcon received the stiffest sentence of 65 years. Bowen and Gisevius each got 40 years while Villavaso was sentenced to 38. All four were convicted of federal firearms charges that carried mandatory minimum sentences ranging from 35 to 60 years in prison. Faulcon was convicted in both deadly shootings.

“The court imposes them purely as a matter of statutory mandate,” Engelhardt said.

Justice Department attorney Bobbi Bernstein defended prosecutors’ tactics, saying the officers who cooperated with the probe gave them the breakthrough they needed to reveal the cover-up.

“Those deals are the reason that the whole world now knows what happened on the Danziger Bridge,” she said.

The sentences were significantly lower than what prosecutors had recommended. They had asked the judge to sentence the four shooters to prison terms ranging from nearly 60 years for Villavaso to 87 years for Faulcon.

Engelhardt questioned why prosecutors sought a 20-year prison sentence for Kaufman when Michael Lohman, who was the highest-ranking officer at the scene of the shooting and assigned Kaufman to investigate, got just four years after pleading guilty to participating in the cover-up. Engelhardt said Lohman had the authority to quash the cover-up and didn’t.

“The buck started and stopped with him,” the judge said.

He also questioned why prosecutors allowed a former detective, Jeffrey Lehrmann, to receive a sentence of three years in prison when his role in the conspiracy was similar to Kaufman’s.

“These sentences are, in the court’s opinion, blind,” Engelhardt said.

Steve London, one of Kaufman’s attorneys, said his client was pleased that the judge gave him a sentence below the guidelines, which had called for a sentence ranging from a little over eight years to a little over 10.

Lindsay Larson, one of Faulcon’s attorneys, said the judge “laid out the blueprint” for how defense attorneys will challenge the firearms convictions and sentences.

“We have only just begun to fight,” he said.

Tom Perez, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, said federal investigators transformed a cold case into the “most significant police case since Rodney King.”

“We didn’t have a case in 2008 when we inherited this. We had nothing. And hindsight is 20/20. It is easy to look back in hindsight and say why did you do this, why did you do that,” he said. “You don’t go to the witness store to pick out your witnesses. You take what is dealt.”

Engelhardt heard hours of arguments and testimony earlier Wednesday from prosecutors, defense attorneys, relatives of shooting victims and the officers.

He addressed each defendant individually, including Faulcon, who shot his brother: “When I look at you, my pain becomes unbearable. You took the life of an angel and basically ripped my heart out.”

The Rev. Robert Faulcon Sr. told the judge his son “didn’t go looking for trouble.”

“He was on duty and he was called to do a job, and that’s what he did to the best of his ability,” the elder Faulcon said.

Twenty current or former New Orleans police officers have been charged in a series of Justice Department probes, most of which center on actions during the aftermath of Katrina. Eleven of those officers were charged in the Danziger Bridge case, which stunned a city with a long history of police corruption.

The officers had received calls that shots were being fired. SO FUCKING WHAT!  Gunfire reports were common after Katrina.

Faulcon was convicted of fatally shooting Madison, but the jury decided the killing didn’t amount to murder. He, Gisevius, Bowen and Villavaso were convicted in Brissette’s killing, but jurors didn’t hold any of them individually responsible for causing his death.

All five were convicted of participating in a cover-up.

Wednesday’s sentencing isn’t the final chapter in the case. The convicted officers are expected to appeal, and Gerard Dugue, a retired sergeant, is scheduled to be retried in May on charges stemming from his alleged role in the cover-up.
