People are Weird

I came across this today on couple of various sites and I really could not resist posting it.

Man arrested after ejaculating during TSA pat-down

A 47 year old gay man was arrested at San Francisco International Airport after ejaculating while being patted down by a male TSA agent.  Percy Cummings, an interior designer from San Francisco, is being held without bail after the alleged incident, charged with sexually assaulting a Federal agent. According to Cummings’ partner, Sergio Armani, Cummings has “multiple piercings on his manhood” which were detected during a full body scan.  As a result, Cummings was pulled aside for a pat-down.  Armani stated that the unidentified TSA agent spent “an inordinate amount of time groping” Cummings, who had apparently become sexually aroused.  Cummings, who has a history of sexual dysfunction, ejaculated while the TSA agent’s hand was feeling the piercings.  The TSA agent, according to several witnesses, promptly called for back up.  Cummings was thrown to the ground and handcuffed.
A TSA spokesperson declined to comment on this specifc case, but said that anyone ejaculating during a pat-down would be subject to arrest.

So if the TSA Jerks you around, you will be arrested. Shit I don't know what kind of treatment this is but I'm guessing this guy must certainly have been aroused by the agent conducting the search. Though, out of all of the times that I have flown I can't think of one TSA agent male or female that I said "Damn He/She is hot!" They have all been kind of plain jane to me, and nothing that I would have popped a boner over. I guess this will teach the guy not to opt for pat down.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I hope that you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!


I've already started cooking and have the cranberry sauce cooling on the stove as I type away. Tomorrow plan on making some of my usual...

On the Menu
  • Turkey breast
  • Stuffing and gravy
  • Mashed potatoes (for me)
  • Baked Potato (for Ryan)
  • Turnip
  • Carrots
  • French Bread
  • I also have some winter squash on standby. 
  • To wash it all down New Belgium's 2 Below Winter Ale

Beside all of that I'm going to have to do some baking for Saturday at work, we are having a pot luck. Something to help relieve some of the stress of the crazy "Black Friday" retail weekend. I'm planning on making some shortbread cookies and cranberry bread.

Just remember none of those holiday bargains are worth taking someones life or being a general all around Asshole.

Autumn

8811350-R4-013-5

Crunch, crunch, crunch as I walk through the leaves.
Click, clack, swoosh as the leaves fall to the ground.
The musky smell of the decay. The squirrels scurrying around.
Mother nature is falling asleep.

Crunch, crunch crunch as I walk through the leaves.
Click. clack, swoosh down come the leaves.
The birds fly with the precision of fighter squadron
The wind blows with a chill in the breeze. 

Crunch, crunch, crunch as I walk through the leaves.
Click, clack, swoosh down come the leaves.
The air crisp, it bites.
The morning frost shimmers in the light.
Mother nature is  falling asleep as autumn gives way to winter.

Happy Veterans Day

But what is the mean? Did you know that one-third of adult homeless men and nearly one-quarter of all homeless adults have served in the armed forces. While there is no true measure of the number of homeless veterans, it has been estimated that more than 200,000 veterans may be homeless on any given night and that twice as many veterans experience homelessness during a year (US Department of Veterans Affairs).

There are more than 1 Million GLBT veterans in the US and I'm one.

So have you honored the Veterans in your community? We made the sacrifice so you didn't have too. I'm not judging anyone but just hoping to make some of you think just a little bit. Next time you see that homeless person don't cross the street to avoid him/her, just think for a second. When you walk or drive by the local veterans cemetery or war memorial how about stopping for a second and have a look around.

Veterans Day is not just a day to run to the mall for a Sale. A lot of people gave a lot more than so many of us ever will. Just remember "Freedom isn't Free."

I just want to wish all of my fellow veterans a Happy Veterans day, It was an honor to serve alongside you. To those of you that are still serving you have my gratitude for your continued sacrifices that you and your family are making. Make sure that you thank a veteran today.

Leaf Peeping

Ryan and I took a drive about a month ago to the Blue Ridge Mountian Parkway in NC. Our orginal intent was to make up to the Linn Cove Viaduct, but we only made as far as Asheville NC. Once you are on the parkway you really can on go along at about 45MPH and with the stop at the overlooks your average speed probably drops to 30MPH. I guess if you want you could drive and not stop but you would really miss out on the true beauty of the area. But here are some the pics from our trip, I still have 6 more rolls of film to have developed and I'll drop off the second batch tomorrow.

A Douchebag

I saw it the other day and meant to post it then but forgot. Then my friend Tim posted it on Facebook today. You have to watch this video; George Takei's hilarious response to anti-gay bully Clint McCance, former Arkansas school board member who called for more gays teens to kill themselves. I haven't heard the term "Douchebag" used very often anymore but it really seems to be fitting.


It does get better.

Chameleons

I'm kind of a shoe guy I like cool shoes. I have to admit I do check out the shoes a guy may be wearing especially if he's hot ;-) But, it's not like I have a closet full, I'm very frugal in my buying. So if I don't need them I'm probably not going to buy them unless its a deal that I can't pass up.

 About a month ago I picked up my 4th pair of Merrell's this time I went with Chameleon3 Stretch (pictured). I've always kind of admired them but this is my first pair of these. I have to say compared to other Merrell's that I have purchased they are by far the best. They are mighty comfortable and very light. They have pretty good arch support and cushioning. I  found the ran a bit small and went a half size large than I usually wear. These retail for around $105, I'm sure if you look around you might get lucky and find a deal. I picked up mine at REI when they had there member 20 percent off sale and used my points.  My only concern is that I  didn't get the Gore-tex model, which would probably be better for the approaching winter months. If you live in an area that is cooler climate than Georgia, you may want to go with those. So far I am very pleased with these and I will definitely be getting another pair in the future.

Now for some Eye Candy...

Fair and Balanced, Maybe

 Our political structure shift to the right yesterday and boy did US House go way right. The US Senate looks like it will remains slight left of center. Am I happy with the result? Not particularly. Turn out was lousy for the Democratic base, they just did not turn out. I voted and you had your chance, if you didn't vote shut the F*&K Up!

Historically when one party takes the Presidency then they tend to loose seats in the Congress, it happened to Clinton and it happened to Bush. Granted not to the level that we saw yesterday, but the economy wasn't as bad back then as it is now. Unemployment nationwide is around 9%, that is a lot of  people that are hurting and maybe they felt let me give the other guy a try.

But if we look at this way, the US Government is now a bit more balanced with Dems controlling the Executive Branch and the Senate and the Repubs controlling the House. What I hope is that it does not grid lock our government. The two side must to work together and get things done. Because it really does not benefit the people that elected these men and women if they sit in the corner and pout. Yes I'm probably being way to optimistic but it's the truth. Both side need to focus on the economy, getting people back to work and strengthening the country. If nothing gets done then we loose. But these newly elected candidates need to remember that  they work for us (House two years and Senate Six years) until we vote again and we will hold you accountable. And whether you are ready for it or not the 2012 Presidential race starts today.

Go Vote!

Tomorrow is election day and there to many heated races to comment on. I'm sure you know by now where my allegiance lies, if you don't just ask.

But have you seen the figures on how much money is being spent nation-wide on the mid term elections? The estimate is around $3.9 BILLION That is fucking outrageous! Do you know what you can buy for that kind of money? How about your own Virginia Class Nuclear Sub (please allow 3-4 years for delivery). I'm not going to complain about which party is spending more on what race, I don't care about that. But seriously our elections are being bought by corporations, Specials and foreign interests. That is what scares the shit out of me. Because lets face it money buys power.

Despite that I challenge you to say No to these groups and Vote. The one thing that these groups are hoping is that you won't. Voting is still free no matter what you may have heard. So if you haven't done so make sure you head to the polls tomorrow and Vote. Don't assume your candidate has lost or won, until after your vote has been cast.
