Blind Drunk Justish, Episode 7

Posted in Blind Drunk Justice on October 8th, 2010 by bl1y

Uh…yeah, so first an apology.  This week’s episode is a bit on the short side.  We talked about the Yale anti-zombie policy, but the content was pretty unusable, even by our low standards, and we were going to talk about the guy who claimed the cocaine police found shoved up his ass wasn’t his, but the pot was, but instead just discussed whether we had talked about that already.

But, we do have a fun new segment to keep you entertained/annoyed until our next episode, a legal puzzler, because regular brain teasers just aren’t uninteresting enough!

So…what can I say?  At least this shit is free.

Blind Drunk Justice, Episode 7

Here’s the Florida jump pass in all it’s fail:

Can anyone seriously argue that intellectually property law should not be rewritten to allow someone, anyone, to get a trademark or a patent and then file an injunction to stop Trey Burton from doing that ever again?

Also, for the men of average sexual taste perverts out there, here’s a map of worldwide ages of consent:

And of course, if you like our show, you’ll probably hate this other one, but either way, check out the NKOTBs, Down By Lawcast.

NOW That’s What I Call Retarded

Posted in Dumb Ideas Girls Have on February 9th, 2010 by bl1y

In case you didn’t see the Pam and Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial, here it is:

Leading up to the Super Bowl, women’s groups denounced the ad as anti-choice, despite all advance news of the ad suggesting nothing of the sort.  The ad is meant to urge women to choose life, but does not advocate removing that choice.  If advocating for one choice over another is anti-choice, then condom commercials are anti-choice and Obama girl is anti-democracy.

After the ad aired, the general consensus from major news outlets was that the ad was very unoffensive and no one would even have thought it was anti-abortion if it hadn’t been for all the people denouncing it ahead of time.

But not everyone had such a sensible take.  Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW) had this to say:

I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it. That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.

Whaaat?

This is clearly not violent.  Roughhousing, sure, but it’s not violent.  We know this because if Tim had tackled his dad no one would have said a word about it.  But apparently Ms. O’Neill thinks that a woman isn’t as strong as a man.

“You’re not nearly as tough as I am,” Pam tells Tim.  Apparently Pam Tebow disagrees that women are frail, weak creatures that need to be protected from the wanton violence of men.

And of course, I have to point out the context this was in.  It’s was on during the freaking Super Bowl, 60 minutes of men smashing into each other.  An roll in an F-16 fighter jet pulls about 9 gs.  A hard hit in football can easily get over 100 gs.  Pam Tebow’s hit (because it’s obviously simulated) comes in at about 4 gs.  So yeah, let’s treat women as though they can’t handle the force of a roller coaster, and immediately rush them to the hospital to check for concussion when they endure the 2.9 gs of a sneeze.  That’s the best way to promote equality.

Mark Ingram Isn’t Pro-Life, Babies Are Pro-Ingram

I don’t really care too much about the Super Bowl.  For me football season ends with the BCS Championship (RMFT!), but the Tim Tebow ad looks like it’ll be interesting to watch.  And, it’ll provide lots of feminists getting their panties in bundles and saying lots of stupid things.  Most excellent blog fodder.

The popular women-first blog Feministe is claiming that Pam Tebo(Tim’s mom) , wants to take the right to choose away from women, and that the ad is anti-choice.

Well, the ad hasn’t been released and not a lot is known about the specifics of what it will say.  However, all reports so far have pointed that it will simply be Pam Tebow discussing how when she was pregnant with Tim she had complications and was urged to get an abortion, but she decided to have the child anyways, and the ad will urge women to choose to carry their children to term.

Urging someone to make a specific choice is very far from trying to take away their choice.  Otherwise, a campaign urging people to use condoms would also be anti-choice, but of course that’s absurd.

Since the rhetoric surrounding abortion has become so completely retarded, let me explain a few things:

No one (except a few whackoes) is anti-choice.  Pretty much everyone supports certain choices, like contraception or waiting to have sex.  It’s a question of which choices you want.

No one (except a few whackoes) is completely pro-choice.  Infanticide has been a means of getting rid of unwanted infants in several societies, but even super extreme feminists are likely to be against infanticide.  Most moderates are against certain forms of late term or partial-birth abortions.

PS: On a personal note, Tuck Febow, you big crybaby.
