Hard Times For Penile Implant Customer

leave a comment »

I can’t opine on this article, because I cringe every time I start reading the story. Sorry.

A former handyman has won more than $400,000 in a lawsuit over a penile implant that gave him a 10-year erection.

Charles “Chick” Lennon, 68, received the steel and plastic implant in about two years before Viagra went on the market. The Dura-II is designed to allow impotent men to position the penis upward for sex, then lower it.

But Lennon could not position his penis downward. He said he could no longer hug people, ride a bike, swim or wear bathing trunks because of the pain and embarrassment. He has become a recluse and is uncomfortable being around his grandchildren, his lawyer said.

The implant consists of a series of plastic plates strung together with steel surgical wire, almost like a roll of wrapped coins. Springs press against the plates, creating enough surface tension to simulate an erection, D’Alessandro said.

ACLU Double-Speak

leave a comment »

It’s nice to know that the ACLU, the supposed defenders of the freedom of speech, sue school boards when they remove books about the happy life of Commie Cubans, stating that “the school board should add materials with alternate viewpoints rather than remove books that could be offensive.” But yet the ACLU wants to impose a speech code forbidding its individual directors from publicly stating their disagreement with an ACLU decision or policy.

The American Civil Liberties Union is weighing new standards that would discourage its board members from publicly criticizing the organization’s policies and internal administration.

“Where an individual director disagrees with a board position on matters of civil liberties policy, the director should refrain from publicly highlighting the fact of such disagreement,” the committee that compiled the standards wrote in its proposals.

“Directors should remember that there is always a material prospect that public airing of the disagreement will affect the A.C.L.U. adversely in terms of public support and fund-raising,” the proposals state.

Given the organization’s longtime commitment to defending free speech, some former board members were shocked by the proposals.

My Editorial On A Left-Wing Rag

leave a comment »

Remember a while back when I was torn between which local publication to get my weekly coupons from — the Shittsburgh Post-Gazette, which is a liberal rag; or the Shittsburgh Tribune-Review, who pissed me off regarding my subscription. Well, a recent editorial by the Post-Gazette has once again given the Trib a few more points in the “keep and re-subscribe” category. For those that don’t know, there’s this guy in Philadelphia that has a cheese steak shop which has the sign: “‘This is America. When ordering, ‘Speak English.’ “

Apparently, the Post-Gazette, with a headline titled “On immigrants, Santorum sends a worrisome sign,” sides with the chairman of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, who said, “Even though this may not have been the intent of Geno’s, the presence of the sign harkens back to a time when signs stating, ‘no colored allowed,’ ‘Whites only,’ ‘no Jews,’ or ‘no Italians or Irish need apply,’ often greeted patrons of public places.” Whatever, you fucking dipshit. What also made me laugh was the Gazette’s comment of “Mr. Vento remains defiant, while conservative commentators and others upset about the presence of illegal immigrants rally to his cause.” Yeah, those wacky extremists that think people coming across the U.S. border is a bad thing.
