  1. Book sold in Canadian bookstore is a manual telling Muslim men how to beat their wives.

    http://www.torontosun.com/2012/03/23/book-tells-muslim-men-how-to-beat-and-control-their-wives

  2. There are videos all over youtube of clerics discussing how to punish wives, rules and methods. I posted some here in the past. It’s an ongoing thing with these people. Women are dog shit to them.

  3. Good morning, Uppities. Take a look at this article about Belvedere Volka – http://now.msn.com/now/0323-belvedere-rape-ad.aspx.
    Sorry, I thought I knew how to imbed a link.

  4. Blasted WP. I see links imbed automatically,

  5. I have never had to deal with a HOA thank goodness!

  6. I lived in a HOA and for a small annual fee I had tons of benefits including security, road repair, pool, lake, garbage compactor dumpster and annual bulk removal, club house use, picnics, play ground, etc. never had a problem. My land was my business.

  7. Oh and most importantly the snow plow guy came as often as needed until all the roads were clear. I worked first shift and my driveway was passable by 6am even if there was a blizzard the night before. He worked while we slept. I came home to cleared roads too. That is a huge bonus when you live in the deep woods on a dirt road in the countryside.

  8. My tweet to Belvedere’s phoney apologetic president.

    @belvederevodka Do you have a daugther Mr.Gibb? Wonder how you would feel with her face on that ad, pig. Nice obligatory BS non-apology!

  9. Hell I’d rather pay a plow and buy a lawn mower. My roads get plowed with tax money by the city. Ditto for garbage and trash pick up, and large item removal. It’s all free and nobody can tell me I can’t plant a flower. I have seen HOAs and they have seen me. They are vicious little covens comprised of people on an ever-advancing power trip. They know everybody’s business and it’s like being in a monitored encampment that you pay well for. They also target people they don’t like. They hate kids and pets too. The day I buy a home and have to answer to a bunch of anal retentive despot wannabees is the day I should be carted off. The evidence is stacking up against them daily. They are Over The Line. This was never the intention of an HOA, but it is what many of them have become. I can see the obvious rules, but this kind of shit is simply over the top, and it’s more and more frequent. It’s often the case that you buy under one set of rules and next thing you know, you have fifty new rules, knowing you would have never purchased under the “new rule”…as Maher says. As for public pools, no way I would ever use one.

  10. My land was my business.

    Karen, how long ago did you live in an HOA area? Trust me, they are out of control now.

  11. HOAs are like covenants and zoning restrictions. They give someone else control over your property.

    If reasonable and reasonably applied they can be a good thing. But in practice they eventually become a pain in the ass.

    Some places control what color you can paint your house, how you can (and can’t) landscape your yard, what type of fence you are allowed to build, whether you can park your car in the street (or driveway) overnight, whether you can hold a yard sale, how many guests you can have at a time, the number of pets you can have, how many members of your family can live with you, whether you can have a home-office and/or whether (and when and how) you can decorate for holidays.

    They can also make you pay for stuff you don’t want and that wasn’t in the original agreement. Ain’t democracy great?

  12. Yup like all things where you give a committee of people power over your property without your ability to intervene, you Lose in the end. HOAs have morphed into great examples of how people should be more careful to whom they give power over their lives. HOAs can become a lot like Congress.

    And don’t forget how HOAs can drop an “assessment” upon your ass that will require a bank loan. I’ve seen that too. Saw somebody nearly go broke with an assessment for creating an entire new sewer system for the whole community. Newly purchased and nobody, of course, mentioned that assessment was coming up.

    Incidentally, gas for my car this morning= $4.039

  13. I also know someone whose mother passed on and she owned a condo. When her daughter had to travel a thousand miles to disposition her things, she was told she could not hold an estate sale and ended up donating all the furniture to salvation army, had no other option, and you can bet those pickup people took that breakfront and wall unit, and other furniture home before heading for the army warehouse. And that was AFTER some of the dwellers helped themselves to a few things besides –without permission. She couldn’t transport all that stuff back home, of course. They’re covens, I tell you, especially the senior places. They all hand out keys to one another and as soon as one of them is circling the drain, stuff gets moved out. Seriously, I could tell you stories of some of my parents’ florida friends.

  14. And if you don’t pay the assessment (or HOA fees) they can sell your house out from under you.

  15. ……..and you can bet one of the coven is a part time commission realtor with a relative on the board. And if you inherited the place due to death, they come at you and pimp their services because they have your name, address and phone number, even though you live in another state and didn’t give it to them. Covens, I tell you. Covens.

  16. You know there are senior condos all over Florida that will tell you they have to approve to whom you sell the unit. No shit.

  17. good Sunday morning all.looks like rain.great post Upps :)

  18. Of course the rules don’t apply to everyone. Your complaints of violations will fall on deaf ears.

  19. Well your complaints will be heard if you are in the board clique. Otherwise, pffffffft. Legal playground bullying, nepotism and cronie rule-enforcement.

  20. If you click on no other link today, click on this post, “Things you do for penguins”.

  21. Moroccan rape victim kills herself to protest forced marriage to her rapist:

  22. HOA’s are a pain in the ass, I’ve lived in several condos, or house communities that have them. In my area though, there have been some great lawsuits where the homeowners have taken them on and won, so that’s encouraging. When I was a teen the HOA in the very nice upper middle class housing tract we lived dictated what your yard had to look like, what colors you could paint your house, what type of trashcans you had to use; and, they didn’t even have a community pool, which the adjoining neighborhoods had (and which we were not allowed to use, unless we were with friends who lived in those neighborhoods). They’re also ridiculous about where your guests can park. I guess there are some that aren’t so bad, but the ones my Dad lived in the last 15 years of his life, they were horrible. They would give a ticket to me if my car was parked by my dads condo overnite!

  23. I would live on the mountain in a tent before I lived with a HOA. Las Vegas is almost all HOA’s. The city encourages them with some kind of perks because the city gets out of street maintenance and tons of things. It is cheaper for the city to have areas go HOA.
    My daughter lived in one and got fined for tons of things. Christmas lights had to be white only and only hung in certain way and taken down on the 26th. Cars in the garage not on driveway. No wading or swimming pools in yard and no community one either. Trees all had to be the same and planted in the same area of the yard. Houses all the same crap beige white trim only. No guests allowed to park in your driveway had to park in a community lot and walk in bag and baggage.One dog under 25 lbs, no cats or other animals.
    She got a $ 150.00 fine for putting a badminton net up for the kids to play a few games.
    The lady across the street owned her home and was forced out due to several violations. Anyone agreeing to live like that surely must like being controlled. I would be damned if some woman with nothing to do but mind everyone’s business would tell me what to do and send me a fine for having my property the way they want it. I would if they paid my payments and insurance and I got the pleasure of living there scott free. HOA’s are the closest thing to communism there is .

  24. And for the record I hate WP right now. Huge pita to just make a post.

  25. The penguins are cute. Is there some way to tell the females from the males? (I mean, if you’re just someone looking at photos!)

    I especially like the one of the “strutting” one.

  26. Yee gads it’s blowing me away when I look around the web and see so many people saying about Zimmerman, “he’s not white, he’s hispanic!” It’s like saying about an Irish woman, “she’s not white, she’s Irish!” I don’t know why there’s such confusion about ethnicity and race. Everyone has a race (or more than one) and an ethnicity (or more than one).

  27. There was an immensely famous salsa singer named Celia Cruz, she was black and Cuban – she was a black hispanic.

    I learned about her because I watched a movie, and just fell in love with this beautiful, beautiful song. I didn’t have the slightest idea what it was about, because it was in Spanish, so I tracked it down a few years ago so I could get it, and found out the singer had been really famous. And I wrote down the words to the song the best I could and had someone translate it for me. It was a love song, which I thought, by the music and the way she sang. I still love that song.

  28. Hey lorac, could you pls do me a moderator favor & get rid of something for me on last post? Sorry to bug you about it, I left you a message there. Thanks!

    I remember Celia Cruz also. Great performer. The thing about Z being labeled one way or another is political. But your point is correct about the white/race/hispanic. Hispanic is white racially.

  29. Well hold on a sec. If hispanic is white then why the Race Card whenever illegal immigration is brought up, why the race card when a state tries to secure a border, why the race card coming all the way from Mexico’s president, who showed up here to call us racist. why the race card when the UN determined that any laws controlling the border is racist. In short, a race has been declared. Either you are a race or you aren’t a race. Can’t have it both ways. Calling Z white is a definition of convenience to stoke the hatred against anything white. Truth is, Obama is half white but defines himself as black. Zimmerman is half hispanic but that part suddenly disappeared. What’s up with that? You know what’s up with that. Sorry but it’s true.

  30. The penguins are cute. Is there some way to tell the females from the males?

    Why would I want to? :) :)

  31. UW, people confuse race and ethnicity, and hispanics themselves seem to especially – I think for the most part it’s based on a lack of knowledge, they’ve taught themselves that they are a separate race. But yes there are definitely people out there who know better who are trying to play up his race (white) and downplay his ethnicity (hispanic). Hispanic isn’t always white, sometimes the person is black, but in the US most hispanics are white. I suppose technically a hispanic could also be the other race, mongoloid, but I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of that.

    But yes, people definitely refer to hispanic ethnicity as a race, saying it’s racist if America wants borders enforced. The race card is long established. Maybe using the race card is easier than starting an “ethnicist” card when someone feels someone is discriminating because of ethnicity.

    Really none of it should matter, we’re all just the human race. But people like to belong to groups for a sense of one-ness, and then of course we like to see how other groups are “other” and the rest writes itself lol

  32. Because I like that photo of the strutting penguin, and I imagined a little narrative of it being strong female, and then I realized maybe something in its appearance would actually identify it as a male, some identifier I don’t know about lol

  33. UW, people confuse race and ethnicity, and hispanics themselves seem to especially – I think for the most part it’s based on a lack of knowledge

    I think its based on convenience. Nothing shuts people up faster than being accused of being racist. Muslims use it all the time too. Muslims as a race, ME people as a race is news to me. I live in a community with tons of people of ME descent. Never once did anyone ever consider them a race, including themselves. I can’t tell you how many Italians married to Lebonese and Syrian people I know. Nobody ever considered that a mixed race marriage. It’s bullshit. Hell, I look more Lebonese than most of the Lebonese Americans I know.

  34. socal, i trashed your comment as requested. If I trashed the wrong one, let me know and I will reverse it and move the one you designate. xo.

  35. AHA! That’s why all the “Lebonese” women hang out here!!!!!! lol

  36. Lotsa people in Venezuala and Brazil with my last name. I shoulda capitalized on it. Yeah I got a bit of the Latino in me, you racist bastards.

  37. Utah!!! Glad you flew through! Good to know you and the wrecking crew didn’t land in jail. ROFL on your daughter’s HOA stories. Knowing her I would have paid to watch.

  38. lorac NES is not Lebonese. She’s a whacky pac lebonese.

  39. Oh, I was making a silly joke about confusing lesbian and lebonese lol

  40. Yes I saw that. lol.

  41. From what I’ve always read, there are just three races, so yeah, ME isn’t a race. I did research a little to find out better what ethnicity means. There are lots of ethnicities. They seem to be saying it’s mostly a social construct (based on common language, culture, sometimes shared religion, etc), while race is biological. They did say there is some biology to ethnicity, because people tend to breed with their own identified group.

  42. Where’s NES, that vagabond? I want her to weigh in on Z and Trayvon from a legal view.

  43. Oops. YOU got MY joke, I didn’t get YOURS lol

  44. Thanks Upps!

  45. Uppity said, “Calling Z white is a definition of convenience to stoke the hatred against anything white. Truth is, Obama is half white but defines himself as black. Zimmerman is half hispanic but that part suddenly disappeared. What’s up with that? You know what’s up with that. Sorry but it’s true.”

    Uppity, I agree with you. And, this bad situation is taking all the attention off Obama’s failures.

  46. Well, I just gave the young woman who called on behalf of the Democratic Party asking for $$ to fight off the Republican’s War on Women my opinion on both parties anti-women agenda.

  47. Oops. YOU got MY joke, I didn’t get YOURS lol

    ….proving once again that….

  48. Five bucks? They are whoring for five bucks? Man, just shows you how low that party has sunk. I would have them call Donna Brazile to check her list of “old guard” democrats she said they don’t need any longer. I’m sure my name is on the list.

  49. Yes WLM, there are those who believe Obama is using Trayvon to divert attention again. Not that he ever does that…it’s just a coinkydink that SCOTUS is taking up his health care travesty on Monday and he said nothing till Friday.

  50. Hahaha socal and I answered that comment. Now I look like a Loon. Which is close to true, anyways.

  51. Zimmerman is a German name . Give you two guesses why he is classified white. Let’s see if you figure it out. Being a German I already have gone through this shit a time or two in my life.

  52. Oh and Upps you are so right about that maniac daughter of mine. That poor snooty fake blond, busy body met her match. End result is when her contract for rent was up she left but not once did she pay a fine. She fought them all the way.

  53. Utah, she didn’t get that fiesty tude from her old lady or anything. Naahhhhhh.

  54. Utah only Zimmerman family I know is Jewish.

  55. Hey how do you think I feel? My ethnicity is no day at the beach either. Just because a bunch of guys with hairy backs and crooked broken noses run a tight ship, I am discriminated against. Where is the love??? I can’t help it if there are only two types of people. Italians and those who wish they were!

  56. Well, I feel so warm and fuzzy with all the attention from the DNC. Got emails from Joe Biden and Debbie Wasserman Schultz about the greatness of the Affordable Care Act. In fact, Joe says that it fires him up! Plus, I got a membership letter from DNC that says my membership status is “pending.” They said, “We have sent several previous membership renewal statements to you at this address, but we have not yet received your reply..” Imagine that! I guess “breaking up is so hard to do” for them. Ha!

  57. Hahah WLM, funny how they never bother me by mail any longer since I told them to shit in their hat and put it on their head. In writing.

  58. Yep. That got their attention.

  59. Well that and when I deleted my email address they kept spamming. I’m officially under the radar now since I am not a member of their party except as a registered member who helps delude them into thinking their numbers are better than they really are.

  60. Thanks again Upps. We have friends that still comment about our story whenever the particular law enf. people are in the news, and I like to tell parts of it when pertinent to people I know, but I am afraid of those people that screwed us. We live in an insane world.

  61. I wonder how many young black men have been murdered since the night Trayvon Martin died?

  62. There was a rampage in Chicago last week, youngest was 6, but it was just a girl. Doesn’t count.

  63. Wouldn’t it be great of all Hillaryites deleted the email addresses the DNC uses and their emails all just bounced back in their faces?

  64. You’re welcom socal. I know how you feel and will always be there to do the deed when you are ready to Remove.

  65. There are way too many deaths that don’t count.

  66. socal – I see UW took care of it. I wandered away from that post and didn’t see that until now. Thank you for sharing, though. It’s so terrible.

  67. tude ??? From me ?? roffffffffffff. Yea there could be a tad bit of truth to that one lol. Just a tad. lmao. She is trying to buy a home now and so far everyone she likes is in a hoa and like she said if that is the case I will remain a renter.
    I would last about ten minutes in a hoa before getting my first fine.

  68. I would last about ten minutes in a hoa before getting my first fine

    I would last ten minutes before I got my first assault charge.

  69. Time for another Subaru commercial.

  70. me too but I was being nice lol

  71. I would last ten minutes before I got my first assault charge.

    And that is why you’re our Uppity. Eh, you aren’t alone…I’d be in the clinger after a few days.

  72. I would most likely have some woman with a helmet hair do dancing. You know what I mean.

  73. OT – I just came upon a post at Reclusive Leftist from last month – she gives examples that make it easy to understand what Obama has done – and how he didn’t have to do ANYthing to make the bishops happy…. but, as we know, it was a good way to ramp up the right wing to push women back to Obama…

    http://www.reclusiveleftist.com/2012/02/13/people-who-have-been-warning-about-slippery-slope-for-years-unable-to-recognize-slippery-slope/

    Feminists have been warning for years that contraception was next on the conservative hit list; that the war on abortion would metastasize into a war on birth control.

    On Friday President Obama handed conservatives the first victory in that war, marking off contraception as a special thing that could be legitimately denied on the basis of religious liberty. You would think that the people who have been warning against this for years would be alive to the danger. And some of us are. But a lot of folks aren’t getting it.

    So let me try again to explain, using examples.

    Example 1: Let’s say a Jehovah’s Witness-affiliated company tells the Administration that they don’t want to cover blood transfusions in their healthcare plan because it’s against their religious beliefs. Do you think Obama would hold a press conference and announce that, henceforth, employers won’t have to pay for blood transfusions if it violates their conscience? Would he invoke the precious right to religious liberty? Would he announce that insurance companies would pick up the slack and pay for blood transfusions themselves?

    No. He would not. The Administration would simply say to the Jehovah’s Witnesses, “Sorry, but no dice. Blood transfusions are normal healthcare. And it’s settled law that your religious beliefs don’t provide any exemption from general regulations or allow you to discriminate against employees in the public square. End of story.”

    Example 2: Let’s say a Scientology-affiliated company tells the Administration that they don’t want to cover psychiatric medicine in their healthcare plan because it’s against their religious beliefs. Do you think Obama would hold a press conference and announce that, henceforth, employers won’t have to pay for psychiatric medicine if it violates their conscience? Would he invoke the precious right to religious liberty? Would he announce that insurance companies would pick up the slack and pay for psychiatric medicine themselves?

    No. He would not. The Administration would simply say to the Scientologists, “Sorry, but no dice. Psychiatric medicine is normal healthcare. And it’s settled law that your religious beliefs don’t provide any exemption from general regulations or allow you to discriminate against employees in the public square. End of story.”

    But with contraception, Obama has acknowledged that it’s a special thing that can be denied on the basis of religious liberty. He has carved it away from the rest of the pack of treatments and medications, and put it over in a special class.

    A special class that has only one other member: abortion.

  74. Probably 3 or 4 in my area. One was a 14 yo who shot and killed a 12 yo allegedly because the 12 yo wouldn’t give him a dollar.

  75. Those cute dogs make me want to get a Subaru.

    lorac, agree about the slippery slope.

  76. upps said.
    Hahah WLM, funny how they never bother me by mail any longer since I told them to shit in their hat and put it on their head. In writing.
    I can see it now!! :lol:
