01) 40ft Shipping Containers Transformed Into Amazing Off-Grid Family Home


“This amazing small home has been built using two 40ft high cube shipping containers, slightly of-set from one another to create a stunning, off-the-grid family home.

Feeling inspired to downsize after watching tiny home and small house design videos online, this couple decided to take the plunge into designing and building a shipping container home for their family to reduce their expenses and be able to dedicate more time to the things that really matter.

01) This Family Live In Perfect Isolation


“Bush Babes (2009): Far away from the bustle of modern life, this family have found the ultimate alternative life.

The Long family live as hermits in South Westland, New Zealand. They live in a makeshift hut without even the basics of modern life and have had no contact with the outside world for over 15 years.

Once a young medical student poised for great success, Robert Long decided to relocate his family to the bush. “I wanted to be somewhere where it was all wilderness”, he says. Now living amongst the mountains of New Zealand they thrive from a lifestyle that would terrify most people. Of his children, he says “I think they concentrate on what we miss out on, they don’t realise how much we have that they don’t have.”

Child flashers will have to register as sex offenders under bill passed by Ohio House…

01) Child flashers will have to register as sex offenders under bill passed by Ohio House

“COLUMBUS — The Ohio House voted 80-0 for a bill that steps up penalties for people who masturbate in view of or expose themselves to children. These kiddie flashers would be required to register as tier 1 sex offenders for 15 years.

The ACLU of Ohio opposed the bill, saying expanding the sex offender registry [is] ineffective at best and harmful at worst.

“There is no evidence these policies and laws keep people safer or reduce recidivism,” said Gary Daniels of the ACLU of Ohio in written testimony. Exiling sex offenders and making it more difficult to find housing and unemployment increase the chances they will commit another offense, he said.”

I interpreted this title wrong, thinking I was about to read a story about them passing a law…to throw naked children onto the sex offender register…

I was going to say…”Hey…If they want to flash somebody…I’m available!”…

…I won’t touch anybody, of course…

…I guess, wanking and streaking in front of kids, is a thing…and they want you on the sex offender register, for it…[in Ohio].

My goodness…I think about all the times my father was naked, at home…I could tell stories…

…He’d probably be on the sex offender register, if anybody had reported it…

…As it happens…the laws weren’t this badly out of hand, at the time.

Netflix Under Investigation for Streaming Disturbing Child Pornography Scenes…

01) Netflix Under Investigation for Streaming Disturbing Child Pornography Scenes

“An Argentinian movie that Netflix offers called Desire is upsetting subscribers because of what looks like illegal content. Viewers on Facebook have shared a clip of the movie and are calling it outright child porn. In the opening scene, two little girls who look to be about seven and nine are playing “horse” on pillows. The older girl begins to obviously masturbate as the younger child watches. The camera even takes this scene into a closeup of the child’s face in slow motion, moving up and down and panting like a porn star. The scene is graphic and includes an orgasm. The film is directed by Diego Kaplan.

PJ Media reported it to the FBI and the Department of Justice, along with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which has launched an investigation.”

Little girls masturbating?!!…

Oh!…The Humanity!!…

So…they got a movie from some place, where this sort of thing is still perfectly legal?…and they distributed it somewhere else, where the puritans will freak out…

Free Speech and the Capitulation of the SPLC…

01) Free Speech and the Capitulation of the SPLC

“Two years ago, when the (once-) venerable Southern Poverty Law Center published a “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists,” there was widespread outrage over the fact that the SPLC’s list included not only bona fide Muslim-bashers but also British liberal Muslim Maajid Nawaz—the head of the anti-extremist, reformist Quilliam Foundation. Nawaz later announced his intention to file a crowdfunded defamation lawsuit against the SPLC. Now, he has won an impressive victory. The SPLC, which had already removed the “Field Guide” from its website in April, issued a retraction and an apology—and agreed to pay Nawaz a $3.4 million settlement. This week, Nawaz is scheduled to meet with SPLC president Richard Cohen, hoping both to find out more about the circumstances of his listing and to “educate” Cohen about the conflict between fundamentalism and reform within the Muslim community.

A happy ending? Certainly, for Nawaz and his supporters: Commentary contributor Sohrab Ahmari writes that “it’s good to see the SPLC held to account for at least one of [its] smears” against people who don’t toe the progressive party line. Yet a number of commentators who have been sympathetic to Nawaz, and harshly critical of the SPLC’s decision to put him on the “anti-Muslim extremist” list—such as Atlantic writer David Graham—find his win troubling. “Though it inspires good feelings about fairness and truth,” wrote attorney and blogger Ken White (also known as ‘Popehat’), “it ought [to] also inspire concern about free expression and our broken court system.” Reason’s Robby Soave writes that, while the SPLC “really screwed up here, and it was right to apologize,” the settlement could end up chilling free speech.”

Sad truth is…the Southern Poverty Law Center has been careless and sloppy, for a very long time…This is simply something, overdue to come around and bite them in the behind, hard.

I’ve seen this before…Some of their inclusions just weren’t right…on a “we’re throwing our integrity straight into the trash can”, sort of level.

Good article.
