The Palin Rape kit rumor is not true!

There has been a nasty rumor going on that during Palin's tenure as mayor of Wassila, female rape victims were required to pay for their own rape kits. It was supposed to be another example on how Palin was really a man and hated women and wanted them all to stay home barefoot and pregnant.

Imagine my surprise when you find out that this is not true.

In reality, and had any journalist in the MSM outlets bothered to do their job instead of working for the Obama campaign 24/7, there was a state law forbidding charging victims of rape for their rape kits since 2000. As for where it all came from, the chief of Police( chief of police, not Palin) in Wasilla wanted to have the Insurance companies(Insurance companies, not the victims) to pay for them, with the intention of billing it ultimately to the rapists eventually. However, there isn;t a single piece of record that shows that a single victim's insurance was ever billed for it. If this practice still seems creepy or exclusive to macho,
rough-and-tumble Alaska, well, it happens to be the practice in other
states, too, like North Carolina (until recently) and … Illinois.

And can you guess who co-sponsored that bill in Illinois?

Can you say Barack Obama?

Have a nice day! 

The 1942 guide to hiring women

Oh, it's hilarious . My favorites are those:

Pick young married women. They usually have more of a sense of
responsibility than their unmarried sisters, they're less likely to be
flirtatious, they need the work or they wouldn't be doing it, they
still have the pep and interest to work hard and to deal with the
public efficiently.

General experience indicates that "husky" girls – those who are just a
little on the heavy side – are more even tempered and efficient than
their underweight sisters.

Retain a physician to give each
woman you hire a special physical examination – one covering female
conditions. This step not only protects the property against the
possibilities of lawsuit, but reveals whether the employee-to-be has
any female weaknesses which would make her mentally or physically unfit
for the job.

And my most favorite one:

Give every girl an adequate number of rest periods during the day. You
have to make some allowances for feminine psychology. A girl has more
confidence and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied, apply
fresh lipstick and wash her hands several times a day.

You know, what's messed up is that whomever wrote that article probably thought of themselves as someone who is understanding  and sensitive to the needs of women. I wonder though how many people actually used it, and what results it yielded, except maybe hiking employment in the young married fat girl demographic. Hmm…

Benazeer Bhutto assassinated by Al Qaeda

***SCROLLDOWN FOR UPDATES*** 

Former Pakistani PM and Opposition Leader Benazeer Bhutto just got assassinated 40 minutes ago. She was shot by a gunman who proceeded to blow himself up after shooting her, killing 20 others as well.

A party security adviser said Bhutto was shot in neck and chest as she got into her vehicle to leave the rally in Rawalpindi near the capital Islamabad. A gunman then blew himself up.

"At 6:16 p.m. she expired," said Wasif Ali Khan, a member of Bhutto's party who was at Rawalpindi General Hospital where she was taken after the attack.

The only question now is, who is behind this? The method of assassination is one used by Islamic militants, and they did try to assassinate her before, within hours of her return, resulting in the deadliest suicide bombing in Pakistan's history. Now, Bhutto had 2 people who, politically speaking, would benefit from her death: Musharraf and Nawaz Sherif. Bhutto did rub Nawaz the wrong way, especially with her insistence on not boycotting the elections-like he plans to- which weakens the position of his opposition party on the illegitimacy's of the pakistani elections. Nawaz also reportedly has strong ties with the islamist parties in Pakistan, so he also has the following that could do such a thing. However, the Bhutto supporters seem to have placed the blame on Musharraf instead:

Her supporters at the hospital began chanting "Dog, Musharraf, dog," referring to Pakistan's president Pervez Musharraf.

Some smashed the glass door at the main entrance of the emergency unit, others burst into tears. One man with a flag of Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party tied around his head was beating his chest.

That being said, the woman did have many other enemies than just Nawaz and Musharraf, both of which have more to lose if suspected of being behind her murder. She was on the hit list of both Al Qaeda and Al Taliban, not to mention other islamist terrorist groups. This could've been caused by anybody. I guess the next few days will tell. Or maybe hours. No one issued a statement of responsibility yet. It's very unlikely that it was an independent agent though, the woman is hated by many and considered the symbol of opportunism and corruption, but a gun and a suicide bomber belt? Not easy to come by  if you are acting solo. I mean, sure, it's Pakistan, but come on. A group was behind this. The only question left is who.

Update: Here are some Pictures from the Attack:

 

 

 

Update: Al Qaeda took responsbility for the assassination:

A spokesperson for the al-Qaeda terrorist network has claimed responsibility for the death on Thursday of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

“We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahadeen,” Al-Qaeda’s commander and main spokesperson Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid told Adnkronos International (AKI) in a phone call from an unknown location, speaking in faltering English. Al-Yazid is the main al-Qaeda commander in Afghanistan.

It is believed that the decision to kill Bhutto, who is the leader of the opposition Pakistan People's Party (PPP), was made by al-Qaeda No. 2, the Egyptian doctor, Ayman al-Zawahiri in October.

Hell..
