Conspiracy Theory Rock

The Media: It sucks

Another example of why women should boycott so-called "beauty magazines" for their contrived image of beauty.

No guns allowed at GOP meeting blasting “gun free zones”

I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. GOP Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas, bff of gun-nut and NRA board member Ted Nugent, is holding a very special meeting in the US Capitol building next week to blast President Obama and the entire notion of “gun free zones.”

Stockman’s meeting is being called ”The Fallacy of Gun Free School Zones.” He’s offered legislation repealing the federal gun free zone law that protects schools.

So where is Stockman holding his meeting blasting the dangers of gun free zones? In the US Capitol building, a gun free zone.

No guns will be allowed at Stockman’s meeting in order to guarantee Rep. Stockman’s safety.

Oh the irony.

Wouldn’t Stockman be even safer if everyone attended his meeting armed? I’m so confused.

Not to mention, I worked on the Hill, and we held meetings all the time off the Hill. Stockman could have easily thrown this event at some place in town that permits guns. But he didn’t. He chose to have a PR event vilifying gun-free zones at probably the second-most famous gun-free zone in America, after the White House.


Oh well. Back to the drawing board…

World’s worst portrait tattoo fixed for free

You’ve seen the above tattoo before, and it’s not only hideous, it’s an affront to the memory of the beautiful woman who died way too young. So Scott Versago of Empire Ink in Akron, Ohio offered to fix it for free.

I got to tackle the official “#1 worst portrait tattoo in the world” today. I’m sure you’ve all seen it a million times online, as had I. I couldn’t believe my eyes when this guy walked in and showed me this project. I think my jaw literally hit the floor. He went on to tell me the story behind the portrait; He had just married his beautiful wife and not even three months afterwards she was killed in a horrible house fire accident leaving him to raise their three children alone. Shortly after he went to a local tattoo studio to memorialize his wife and was left with this abomination. He later returned to that studio for one more session, thinking that perhaps “he had done something wrong in the healing of the tattoo” and they butchered it even more the second time. Finally, he drove all the way to my studio, Empire Ink, just to meet me and to see what his options were. Touched by his story, I gifted the entire project to him for free. Now he has closure and I have an amazing story to add to my portfolio!

Sequestration was ALWAYS a REPUBLICAN idea…

Now, the REPUBLICANS THEMSELVES are saying that SEQUESTRATION is a bad idea IF and WHEN its IMPLEMENTED.

…This only goes to show: NEVER allow REPUBLICANS to get their way.

Check out my show, show me some love!


Washington Park officer accused of 'tasing' handcuffed women

WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Court documents show a Washington Park police officer was accused of violating a woman’s civil rights by allegedly arresting her with no justification, then shooting her twice with a taser while she was handcuffed and sitting in the back of a police car.
News 4 has also confirmed that there are currently several open investigations into similar allegations against Officer Antwan Stith.

The lawsuit filed claims, on July 12, 2010, Stith and other officers went to a house to purportedly investigate an assault complaint.
While there, the suit says Officer Stith, “without provocation or any legal justification, arrested and handcuffed” Shannon Tugle and “threw her in the back of a squad car.” While Tugle sat defenseless in the back of the police car, the suit alleges Stith “tasered her twice, while she was handcuffed, causing severe physical damage.”

The lawsuit goes on to accuse Stith of lying to cover up what he did by claiming Tugle was resisting. The suit asked for $50,000, and after two years of legal wrangling, both sides agreed to an out of court settlement of $10,000. The lawsuit was then dropped.


These assholes… Are assholes.

I think that we're far beyond the point of ridiculousness here…
