Washington state Republican lawmaker resigns amid gay sex scandal

A Republican state legislator resigned Wednesday amid revelations that he had sex with a man he met at a pornographic video store while in Spokane on a party retreat.

The move comes days after state Rep. Richard Curtis insisted to his local newspaper that he was not gay and that sex was not involved in what he said was an extortion attempt by a man last week.

But in police reports, Curtis said he was being extorted by a man he had sex with at a hotel room in Spokane, where Curtis was attending a GOP retreat. The other man, Cody Castagna, 26, contends Curtis reneged on a promise to pay $1,000 for sex.

The police report states that Curtis allegedly wore women’s clothing, red stockings and “a black sequined lingerie top before engaging in a sex act at the store. He continued to wear them throughout the night under his clothing,” the paper reported

Curtis is married and has children, according to his legislative Web site. Elected to the state House of Representatives in 2004, he voted in 2005 and 2006 against a bill that granted civil rights protections to gays and lesbians, and in 2007 voted against a bill that created domestic partnerships for same-sex couples. Both measures eventually passed the Democratic-controlled state Legislature and are now state law.

HOW MUCH LONGER CAN CLOSETED REPUBLICANS KEEP THIS UP? I feel bad for them, though I'm glad when their hypocrisy is exposed.

Anti-Gay Church hopes God can cover 10.9 mil tab

I blogged on these fruit loops before. Looks like they finally got slapped for their insane hate-in-the-name-of-god bullshit.


Church ordered to pay $10.9 million for funeral protest

Albert Snyder of York, Pennsylvania, sued the Westboro Baptist Church for unspecified damages after members demonstrated at the March 2006 funeral of his son, Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, who was killed in Iraq.

Church members routinely picket funerals of military personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, carrying signs such as "Thank God for dead soldiers" and "God hates fags."

The church and three of its leaders -- the Rev. Fred Phelps and his two daughters, Shirley Phelps-Roper and Rebecca Phelps-Davis, 46 -- were found liable for invasion of privacy and intent to inflict emotional distress.

Snyder claimed the protests intruded upon what should have been a private ceremony and sullied his memory of the event.

The church members testified they are following their religious beliefs by spreading the message that the deaths of soldiers are due to the nation's tolerance of homosexuality.

Their attorneys argued in closing statements Tuesday that the burial was a public event and that even abhorrent points of view are protected by the First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of speech and religion.

The judge said the church's financial statements, sealed earlier, could be released to the plaintiffs.

Members of the group sang "God Hates America" to the tune of "God Bless America."

Snyder sobbed when he heard the verdict, while members of the church greeted the news with tightlipped smiles.

Human species 'may split in two'


Humanity may split into two sub-species in 100,000 years' time as predicted by HG Wells, an expert has said.
Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge.

The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said - before a decline due to dependence on technology.

People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.

The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative and a far cry from the "underclass" humans who would have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures.

Race 'ironed out'

But in the nearer future, humans will evolve in 1,000 years into giants between 6ft and 7ft tall, he predicts, while life-spans will have extended to 120 years, Dr Curry claims.

Physical appearance, driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility, will improve, he says, while men will exhibit symmetrical facial features, look athletic, and have squarer jaws, deeper voices and bigger penises.

Women, on the other hand, will develop lighter, smooth, hairless skin, large clear eyes, pert breasts, glossy hair, and even features, he adds. Racial differences will be ironed out by interbreeding, producing a uniform race of coffee-coloured people.

However, Dr Curry warns, in 10,000 years time humans may have paid a genetic price for relying on technology.

Spoiled by gadgets designed to meet their every need, they could come to resemble domesticated animals.

Receding chins

Social skills, such as communicating and interacting with others, could be lost, along with emotions such as love, sympathy, trust and respect. People would become less able to care for others, or perform in teams.

Physically, they would start to appear more juvenile. Chins would recede, as a result of having to chew less on processed food.

There could also be health problems caused by reliance on medicine, resulting in weak immune systems. Preventing deaths would also help to preserve the genetic defects that cause cancer.

Further into the future, sexual selection - being choosy about one's partner - was likely to create more and more genetic inequality, said Dr Curry.

The logical outcome would be two sub-species, "gracile" and "robust" humans similar to the Eloi and Morlocks foretold by HG Wells in his 1895 novel The Time Machine.

"While science and technology have the potential to create an ideal habitat for humanity over the next millennium, there is a possibility of a monumental genetic hangover over the subsequent millennia due to an over-reliance on technology reducing our natural capacity to resist disease, or our evolved ability to get along with each other, said Dr Curry.

He carried out the report for men's satellite TV channel Bravo.

Live Long, and... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

A new procedure allows people to now do what Captain Kirk did when posing as a Romulan in Star Trek... GET VULCAN EARS! These are real patients.When asked by the media for a quote on this trend, Science Officer Spock said "Are they fucking nuts???? But anyway... um... is that brunette available for Pon Farr next year? She's HOT!"
See the illogical results HERE.

Marie Osmond - Fallroom dancer

No reason, just funny. She makes an awesome THUMP when she hits the ground. Looking at the first 30 seconds of the clip she must have been mixing Cocaine, Diet Coke and Pop-Rocks.

When Rupert Murdoch controls all the news you see, hear and read, you can thank this prick.

Above image is of the FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, a loyal "Bushie" for years and is now trying to fast-track the further easing of regulatory laws which would allow a single company to own both a newspaper and television or radio station in the same city. This would be a great boon for those who find profit and power in controlling all the news you see, hear and read.

If approved, the new rules could take effect as early as this December. The FCC DOES NOT need to ask you for permission to do so. Americans do not get to vote on this.

This is something they tried to do a few years ago when another loyal Bushie and Colin Powell's son Michael (I recall listening to Howard Stern tear him a new one on the air in 2003 or so). At that time, millions of Americans mobilized, wrote letters to Congress and the FCC to do something about it, and there’s this landmark lawsuit called Prometheus v. FCC that blocked it. Of course, if such a thing happens again, the Supreme Court is very nicely set up to do Bush's will.

Martin’s push to rewrite existing rules was revealed by North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan (Democrat) during a Commerce Committee hearing on Wednesday. But Senator Dorgan vowed to put up a fight and said, "If the chairman intends to do something by the end of the year, then there will be a firestorm of protest, and I am going to be carrying the wood,” he said.

Martin leads a body of 5 FCC Commission (3 are republican, at least two are nominated by George Bush.)

These are their faces:

Feel like complaining? Hey try to bitch directly to the FCC. They may ignore it but it feels good to go on record.


"Yesterday my Mormon neighbor threw away her son's Dumbledore Halloween costume."

Above was a posting on a web site I stumbled on. Oh the insanity.

On the flipside, here's what the blog I Watch Stuff said about the "controversy"...

Harry Potter author JK Rowling announced the character of Dumbledore was gay. In response, my roommate said, "No shit. The whole fucking thing is gay."

At least we can settle the "Is he gay" thing.

BANGKOK, Thailand - David Copperfield has canceled upcoming shows in Southeast Asia following an FBI search of his Las Vegas warehouse and a casino theater where he regularly performs.

"His management sent an e-mail to organizers Sunday to inform that his shows will be postponed indefinitely," Kittiyong Achawaphong of RSi Dream Entertainment said Monday. The company organized the 51-year-old magician's shows in Thailand.

Copperfield was also scheduled to perform in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore in the coming weeks. The cancellations came after FBI agents conducted searches in Las Vegas last week following allegations that Copperfield "forced himself" on an unidentified woman.
