Women stage topless

"Ikea has obeyed the wild Wahhabi regime of the Saudis and 'adapted' its catalogue by Shariah by deleting all of the images of women and girls," feminist movement Femen, which claimed responsibility for the protest action, said on its website. The three women, aged 32, 23 and 22, were fully clothed when they entered the Ikea store near Hamburg in northern Germany. In the toilets, however, they removed their tops and painted German flags over their breasts and daubed feminist messages across

I have never understood people worrying about an exposed breast. Even less so, people exposing them as a means of getting attention.

Besides, I'm a leg man.

1. IMHO, Islam is a far bigger problem for and threat to women than Ikea's catalog edits could ever be.

2. For the first time, I might be interested in responding to the PA call for "clean-up in Aisle Six."

3. Re the Ikea catalog knuckle-under [Larger-Issue Division] -- why is it that the West must "accept" [read: capitulate to] the "diversity" of Islamic Sharia, but never ask for any acceptance of our principles from Muslim "cultures" and nations?

4. A small point of curiosity -- Ikea's efforts in China went nowhere [cultural thing, no "handyman" or do-it-yourself ethos (why do I think that's very revealing of many things?)]. It's pretty hard for me to think that Saudi men are up to their eyeballs in Western-style boot-strap-itis, chomping at projects to get their furniture-manufacturer-provided Allen wrenches into. Then again, there are a bunch of Saudis who have zero -- Z-e-e-e. Roh. -- prospect of families of their own, with wealthier males snagging 2, 3, 4 wives. So maybe assembling Swedish bookcases fills their time?

But wait. A Saudi bookcase could fit in a shoebox, considering it only needs to hold one book....

I fully supportthe right of women to bare their breasts. And I don't care what the protest is.

I'm not sure who first invented the modern topless female protest but they deserve and award. I'm thinking Nobel Peace Prize here. ;-)

In an unrelated matter, it was announced this morning that Bill Clinton will be speaking at the Ikea outside of Chicago at Saturday around noon.

If they wish to protest, how about going to Saudi Arabia and protesting the culture that puts livestock ahead of women? What's that, they say - don't want to be whipped or stoned?

Stay classy. And cowardly.

Hey, considering it's Ikea, maybe they, or someone like Lowe's or Home Depot [or Mattress World?] should start Saturday in-store demonstrations of protest-painting?

Oh -- and contests! Most creative, best use of space, like that. And how about a "Mt. Rushmore Look-Alike" contest? For twins?

#7: I'd suggest a separate, annual, [monthly, even] prize just for topless protests. An occasional Nobel isn't going to hold up.

#8: He's probably got someone negotiating appearances at all their store openings already.

#11: Good one. No homework for you this weekend.

#13: Do you want close-ups? Or profiles? Maybe a slide show [like so many websites now use to run up big numbers of phony page views]?

Assuming most posters on her are guys. Personally, I'd like to see the US Men's Olympic Swimming team bare their chests in protest of something.

Close the borders to Muslim
immigrants: Salim Mansur’s
House of Commons testimony
Ottawa Citizen [Canada], by Robert Sibley    Original Article
Posted By: PrairieAnemone- 10/12/2012 2:11:16 PM     Post Reply
When Salim Mansur, a political scientist at the University of Western Ontario, asked me to provide a promotion blurb for his 2011 book Delectable Lie: A Liberal Repudiation of Multiculturalism, I was only too happy to oblige. Here’s what I wrote: “In an age of ideological conformity such as ours, it takes courage to speak against the prevailing orthodoxy. This is a courageous book. Professor Mansur exposes how multiculturalism corrodes the values and traditions that sustain Canada as a liberal democratic order. The result is a book to galvanize Canadians against the apostles of extremist progressivism.”

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
