Just called the embassy in Washington 202-243-2400. Asked if they really still practiced public flogging, and isn’t that barbaric? They were dumbfounded, and transferred me to someone else. I recommend everyone call.

Also called her supervisor (Allen Grant?) and left him a VM about the conversation.

I called Karen Hunter’s office (404-639-3311) and they put me through to her! I notified her that I was with a conservative SuperPAC, and that I would like a copy of the obesity report denied to Daily Caller. She said it was available online in a medical journal. She also repeatedly asked me if I was a “media group”. I told her that yes, we gather information and distribute it to people. I asked if she had a hard-and-fast list of requirements for “media”. She said, “Well, you know, a SuperPAC isn’t media. Are you, like, a news station, or do you print a newspaper, or a magazine or something like that?” I found her request not only outdated (most people in the US do NOT get their news mainly from those sources now) but also contradictory: Her LinkedIn profile says her job at the CDC is to “work with international, national, regional and local news media (print, broadcast, Web, etc.)” Her words, not mine. “Web, etc.” Furthermore, one of our stated objectives is to inform and educate (a media function). She was trying to dissuade me for being conservative. She clearly hasn’t learned her lesson, and needs to be FIRED.
As the co-founder of a conservative SuperPac (registered “America is Great” with the FEC), I called and told them who I was and that one of the things we did was provide free copies of the Constitution and Bill of Rights to local government offices for display. I asked if they had a copy on display, and if not, if we could send one free of charge. She LAUGHED, and said “I know where your going with this” and HUNG UP on me! A new twist on an already disturbing story.
That’s why I’m sending my kids to BYU. I heard about Christ and His teachings in just about every class, from Business Strategy to Physics to Racquetball. Their mission statement says, in part, “All students at BYU should be taught the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Any education is inadequate which does not emphasize that His is the only name given under heaven whereby mankind can be saved.” Amen. Now I just need to be sure they keep a 4.0.
What a waste of your money. "Jesus-Physics" should be educational......I am sure "Christ-Biology" will be empirically driven as well.
Sent my son to Catholic school and to Jesuit High School. He is a good man, veteran, college graduate and shows up to work hard every day. Like I said, a good man.
Rog4tum - Less of a waste than man made global warming or born this way or rich white Christian heterosexual males are responsible for every bad event throughout history.
"That's why I'm sending my kids to a Christian college, so I can then talk about how no such place exists and how America has lost it's freedoms."

She also has a picture of her with this caption:
“Kathy Kornegay Chruscielski
thinks Lynn Marie Johnson would make an excellent Justice of the Peace for Parker County Pct 4 – this portrait was made yesterday in my home studio. I know Lynn through her community service with the Aledo Advocats. She is dedicated to reducing crime, improving revenue and implementing Teen Court to bring our court in line with the rest of Parker County. — with Lynn Marie Johnson.”
Can someone say “recusal”?

I had a friend who served in the military in Iraq as a doctor. They helped staff several free clinics that were built in Baghdad to help bring the country some better medical care. Guess what one of the top reasons was for young men being admitted to the ER? Impacted urethra. That’s another way of saying your junk is clogged. You figure it out.
This was a common conversation he said:
Doctor: “Do you have sex with you male friends?”
Patient: “Oh sure, who doesn’t know and then?”
Doctor: “Are you gay?”
Patient: “What?! NO!! Are you kidding me?! That’s a crime punishable by death! I like women.”
