Animal Magnetism notes a study finds no links between playing violent video games and becoming violent

Worried about violent video games having an adverse event on American youth?  Worry no longer; a study done by the University of York has found no links between violent video games and violent behavior.  So far, at least; as with most actual science, there are conditions.  Science is, after all, tentative.  Excerpt:

In a series of experiments, with more than 3,000 participants, the team demonstrated that video game concepts do not ‘prime’ players to behave in certain ways and that increasing the realism of violent video games does not necessarily increase aggression in game players.

There is more on the study but the real wisdom comes from Amial himself

There’s another problem, though, and the same problem exists as when someone blames a crime on anything other than the perp:  It’s bullshit.  The only person, the only thing responsible for a crime is the person that committed that crime.  When we lose sight of that, the criminal justice system becomes… well, something like it is today.

Thanksgiving Proclamation [New York, 3 October 1789]

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war – for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted – for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us – and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789. – Go: Washington


No, that is not art, it is child abuse

What a sick, demented human being

A performance with a naked man at an art museum in Sao Paulo has sparked controversy after a child was allowed to touch the man’s body while he lay exposed.

In a video circulating on social networks, a four year old girl is seen crawling on the floor around a man who is lying naked on his back in front an audience.

She touches the man’s hand, legs and feet while accompanied by her mother who looks on and encourages her participation.

Four-year-old girl interacts with controversial naked man exhibit
Art? No, perversion. If this were just adults, then OK, but a small child has no place in that environment 

A spokesperson for MAM refuted the allegations that the exhibition was ‘lewd’, ‘erotic’ and inappropriate for a child.

They said: ‘The performance was in a closed session for guests. The little girl was with her mother who is also an artist.

‘Her daughter asked to enter the show after being given an explanation as to what it contained.

‘The child wanted to participate and under her mother’s guidance and supervision she is seen on all fours going around the artist’s naked body without showing any embarrassment or aversion.

‘This work was authorised by the museum and is not about eroticism and does not include any erotic content.

‘It is an interpretative reading of the work of Brazilian artist Lydia Clark and we are satisfied with the way this performance was handled.’

Sorry, but that is BS, and child abuse

If only we had a rapper with a long rap sheet to explain morality to us

The ladies idiots of The View welcomed noted rap “artist” and violent thug T.I. to their show to sermonize on the evil, racist, fur-wearing, baby seal-clubbing, water polluting, sexist Donald Trump and any Black celebrities that even entertain any idea of talking with our president

Rapper T.I. unloaded on black celebrities who met with Donald Trump after the election, saying they failed to challenge the president for disrespecting and degrading black voters during the campaign.

The Atlanta–based artist told the co-hosts of The View Thursday that he took issue with talk show host Steve Harvey, rapper-producer Kanye West, and football Hall of Famer and civil rights champion Jim Brown meeting with Trump.

“Before you stand and smile and say this is a good man and take pictures, what about addressing the disrespect and disregard for our community that was done?” T.I. said, adding “And what about him being the poster child for white supremacy and standing for the people who look to devalue our lives?”

How did Trump degrade Blacks voters exactly? How is he a “poster child” for White supremacy and how did he show disrespect and disregard for T.I’s “community”? Lets see if the hosts of The View challenged the all knowing T.I.

Shocker! But one meaningful question was put to T.I., no one even thought of asking for context, or substantiation for his claims. All the hosts could do was nod their heads in adulation and agreement. But agreement to what? What T.I. said amounted to baseless accusations, gross generalizations, and, to be honest, incoherent babbling. Yet the audience fawned over him, the hosts exalted him. T.I. is a celebrity, so his wisdom must never be challenged or something.

T.I. also is a fairly regular guest on ESPN, because The View cannot have all the celebrity agitators. Apparently, a lengthy rap sheet is required to be a celebrity everyone loves

Long before T.I. was hip-hop’s “King of the South,” he was Clifford “Tip” Harris, a teenage drug dealer living the seedy life he would later detail in his music. Where many of his peers have moved on from a life of crime to one of luxury and fame, T.I. has struggled to leave it all behind

Of course it is likely Donald Trump is to blame for Clifford’s behavior, after all Cliffy is an “artist”, so he must remain blameless

Earlier this month, just as Takers, a film he produced and starred in, made its debut as the most watched film in America, T.I. got arrested on drug-possession charges. Anyone who’s been following T.I.’s career for any length of time knows that this latest bust was unfortunately neither his first nor his worst. For those that haven’t been keeping track, here’s a rundown of his most shocking offenses.

T.I.’s troubles started early on. He took to the street life when his father passed away, and his uncle went to prison on drug charges. T.I. started selling drugs out of his home as a teen, eventually dropping out of high school to push weight full time. After numerous close calls with law enforcement, an 18-year-old Tip finally found himself arrested in 1997 on charges including felony distribution of crack cocaine, giving authorities a false name, and manufacturing and distributing a controlled substance.
Sentence: Seven months in prison and seven years of probation

In September of 2003, mere weeks after the release of his breakthrough album, the Southern rap landmark Trap Muzik, T.I. found himself back in hot water. During a trip to the University Mall in Tampa, Fla., Harris and his entourage were accosted by mall security and asked to leave due to their loud behavior. Tip and company refused to leave, and the police were called. Rather than picking up and leaving, T.I. instead assaulted the female sheriff on the scene. T.I. was convicted of battery of a law enforcement officer and violating probation.
Sentence: 225 hours of community service.

Likely Cliffy should have gotten a harsher sentence. But maybe the judge saw Cliffy’s “art” and was forgiving

Years of living recklessly in the wake of his 1998 jail stint and subsequent years of probation caught up with T.I. as he racked up a litany of offenses ranging from possession of marijuana to possession of a firearm, leading the state of Georgia to revoke his parole.
Sentence: A year in prison (during which time a camera crew was inexplicably snuck in for an unauthorized video shoot that accidentally facilitated the escape of another inmate), and two years on a work-release program.

In May, T.I.’s entourage was involved in a fatal shootout that claimed the life of his best friend and personal assistant, Philant Johnson. Crushed and paranoid, T.I. began amassing weapons to fend off a perceived threat against his life. He became the subject of a federal investigation that culminated in his arrest hours before 2007’s BET Hip Hop Awards, where he was scheduled to perform. He’d been using his bodyguard to broker a deal for the purchase of a veritable Call of Duty match worth of weapons including, but not limited to pistols and sighted machine guns. The vendor turned out to be a federal agent.
Sentence: Six months in prison, three months in a halfway house, one month of house arrest, three years of probation, a $103,000 fine, and a thousand hours of community service whose completion was documented in the brazenly self-promotional MTV series T.I.’s Road to Redemption, which looked like more of an extended commercial for his 2009 album, Paper Trail, than a punishment.

Again, how was he given a slap on the wrist? T.I. also was arrested in 2010 for possession of a controlled substance. Yet he has flourished despite his character issues and thuggery. Talk about privilege

Lions, Tigers, and Internet Trolls oh my!

Poor Amy Schumer, her Netflix special is bombing, and Amy is blaming Alt-Right trolls

Amy Schumer has lashed out at Internet “trolls” she claims launched an online campaign to tank the reviews of her latest comedy special.

One week after its March 6 debut, The Leather Special had received hundreds of one-star reviews from Netflix members. Schumer responded to the backlash Wednesday on her Instagram account, quoting a news report from Splitsider that claims hundreds of trolls purposefully flooded her comedy special with negative reviews.

“The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do. Read the @splitsider article,” the Trainwreck star wrote. “They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and tv show. And I want to thank them.”

I suppose Schumer could be right, who knows. But she ought to consider another possibility. She just isn’t funny

Schumer’s Netflix special currently holds a 4.4 out of 10 rating on The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) — down from 5.5 less than a week ago.

The Leather Special is also showing a 22% audience score of viewers who “liked it” on Rotten Tomatoes.

Reviews from television critics have also been lukewarm. The Los Angeles Times‘ Lorraine Ali writes that the special features Schumer’s signature brand of dirty humor, but “ironically, the dirtier it gets, the less daring it feels.”

Meanwhile, Newsday’s Verne Gay gave the special a “C” grade.

“It’s all there. She’s all there. Every bit of her,” Gay wrote. “As usual, it’s mostly also all one subject, or variations on that subject, along with every imaginable word to describe that subject, along with some physical pantomime or gesture to add texture and meaning to this subject, just in case the words themselves didn’t quite suffice. As if.”

In other words Amy Schumer is not really that funny, and her usual fare has grown stale

A simple rule Bruce, uh Caitlyn Jenner should follow

If you are a 67-year-old man, who is becoming a woman, NEVER take nude photos

Caitlyn Jenner had a slow 2016, but she is planning a major comeback in 2017 with her first ever naked photo shoot.

Ah, no, just no! And, yes, this is to push a new “reality” Show

Dave Blount offers this insight

Cait has learned from that experience and wants the new show to be more silly and fun like the Kardashian show. It will focus less on [him] being a transsexual and more on being a single girl that wants to date and have a great time.”

The “single girl” in question is a 67-year-old man.

There is good naked, and bad naked, this would be very bad naked! Seinfeld explains

The Six Things Donald Trump MUST Do As President

Hillary Clinton represents everything that is wrong with the American political class. She epitomizes establishment corruption and wanton criminality, and to ignore her blatantly felonious behavior is to condone it.

Of all the ruinous policies enacted by the previous administration, none is so egregious and universally despised as The Affordable Care Act. It must be eradicated like the cancer that it is and replaced with a free-market-based alternative as soon as humanly possible.

This is the primary reason why Donald Trump was elected president, make no mistake about it, and while its construction will not, in and of itself, put an end to illegal immigration, it will symbolize a seriousness of intent with respect to border security that has been sorely lacking in our government for decades.

When it comes to our nation’s highest courts, there are essentially two types of judges who oversee them, originalists and activists. Activistic judges believe that our Constitution is a “living, breathing” document that they are free to modify from the bench at any time and for any reason they concoct. As for originalist judges, I think Justice Antonin Scalia put it best when he said: “Our manner of interpreting the Constitution is to begin with the text, and to give that text the meaning that it bore when it was adopted by the people.”

Reinvigorating the U.S. economy cannot occur without radically reducing taxes on the companies which make up its foundation. Business taxes amount to taxes on all Americans – be they CEOs, employees, stockholders or consumers – and trillions of dollars have been lost to our economy over the years due to government’s insistence on inflicting punitive taxation upon our nation’s most productive citizens. Adding insult to injury, pro-globalist trade policies like NAFTA have served to accelerate the decline of America’s economic vitality, and any attempts to reverse the trends of the past few decades without addressing these key points will prove futile.

Cutting government spending begins with downsizing the bureaucracies infesting it. This can be done through attrition, which simply means not hiring new federal employees to replace the ones who retire for an extended period of time. Beyond that, there are scores of agencies which should be eliminated entirely, like the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Housing & Urban Development, and the EPA for starters. Furthermore, federal regulations have become so pervasive that reducing their number by 50 percent would still leave the Federal Register with nearly 100,000 pages of growth-killing rules. Yes, certain regulatory powers must be exercised in order to stop bad people from doing harm to the rest of us, but when nanny-state know-it-alls in Washington DC decide to start telling the rest of us how much water we can use to flush our toilets or what sort of bulbs we can screw into our light fixtures, they’ve engaged in the sort of conduct that our founding fathers would have taken up arms to oppose.

Toxicology report shows Terrence Crutcher was high on PCP when shot by Tulsa police officer

The officer, Betty Shelby, has been charged in the shooting. This, however could help her during her trial

Terence Crutcher, the drug-abusing felon who abandoned his running SUV in oncoming traffic before being shot by Tulsa Police officer Betty Shelby when she perceived that he was reaching into his vehicle, was in fact high on PCP when he ignored her commands.

Toxicology tests on the body of Terence Crutcher show he had PCP in his system on September 16, 2016, the day he was shot and killed by Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby.

Shelby is charged with manslaughter in his death.

Crutcher’s SUV was parked in the middle of the road when Shelby was responding to another call, records show. Police said the officer saw the vehicle, which witnesses say had its doors open, while en route to another call.

A witness told a 911 dispatcher that when she saw Crutcher by the vehicle, he was saying his car was going to blow up, and she thought he was “smoking something.”

The report also says Crutcher had “acute phencyclidine intoxication.” Phencyclidine is also called PCP.

The positive results could help Shelby’s defense in that she said she perceived Crutcher to be a threat to her safety.

Certainly this does not clear the officer, but it is important evidence. People high on drugs, especially drugs like PCP, which can cause hallucinations can be very dangerous indeed. Crutcher walked away from police, towards his vehicle, then began to reach inside his vehicle. People need to understand that an officer does not know what a suspect is reaching for when they attempt to reach into their car, or into their waist band, or pockets. A suspect who is reaching for a weapon can use that weapon very quickly. An officer who waits to see what is being reached for will likely come to a bad end. Actions tend to be quicker than reactions.

Crutcher’s death is sad. Even sadder if his drug abuse caused him to act as he did. And, again, all the evidence needs to be examined. But, anyone screaming about racism, or about police shooting an unarmed man needs to wait for all the evidence as well. The lynch mob mentality of the Black Lives Matter activists is not about justice, or examining evidence, or improving relations between minorities and police. It is about turning our justice system upside down, and hampering police in their duties.
