Friday Funnies: Map of USA according to Trump & Hillary

There is a cool website called Judgmental Maps, which publishes made-up maps of cities submitted by ordinary people.

Instead of geographical maps that show a city’s streets and landmarks, judgmental maps are completely subjective, arbitrary, decidedly opinionated and therefore, very funny.

Here’s Judgmental Maps‘ “The United States According to Hillary Clinton“:

Surprise! (not): NFL is losing viewers in Kaepernick blowback

On August 26, 2016, San Francisco 49ers black quarterback Colin Kaepernick pointedly knelt, instead of stand, during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

He then followed his kneeling protest with wearing “pig” socks to a practice — socks with cartoon policemen done up as pigs.

This, from a 28-year-old man who somehow managed to accumulate an estimated net worth of $16 million in our land of racial inequality and police brutality. (See “NFL player Colin Kaepernick sits during national anthem; 49ers defend move“)

San Francisco 49ers defended Kaepernick. The coach told The Daily Beast: “We were talking about things that were happening, taking place in society, and it went from the young men talking about the social injustice that they face on a day to day basis from coaches sharing their stories… And through our conversation, the players decided to do this. To make this movement.”

Other NFL players later joined his “peaceful” protest. A high school team in Seattle also followed Kaepernick’s lead.

Well, actions have consequences.

Sports-lovers are tuning out the NFL.

Brandon Katz reports for Forbes, Sept. 12, 2016, that whereas “It’s common knowledge within the TV world that NFL football will always dominate whatever time slot it’s in . . . the smallest of cracks” has appeared “in the NFL’s armor”:

  • The NFL opener and Super Bowl rematch between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers on Sept. 8, 2016, drew in 25.2 million viewers — an 8% ratings decline compared to 2015 and a 6% drop from 2014. CBS scored a 10.2 overnight rating for its NFL offerings, a 13% drop from FOX’s numbers (11.7) last year and a 9% drop from 2014 on CBS (11.2). This also marked the lowest overnight season-opening rating in 7 years.
  • The Sunday Night Football (SNF) opener between the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 11 attracted 20.65 million total viewers — a steep 18% decline in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demographic compared to 2015, and 16% less than the 2014 SNF opener. In fact, 2016 was SNF‘s lowest-rated offering since 2009. 
  • The following Sunday Night Football matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 18 did even worse. It drew in its lowest ratings in 7 years. According to Deadline, the primetime portion of the game scored a 13.7/22 in Nielsen’s metered market ratings — down 18% from last year’s ratings, and a 9% dip compared to the SNF opener just a week before.
  •  Monday Night Football didn’t fare any better.

A week ago Forbes‘ Brandon Katz wondered if the NFL’s lower-than-expected ratings are “just a blip on the radar or a growing trend.” After the successive SNF low ratings, he now concludes:

“[T]he NFL’s decline in the ratings is becoming more of a true pattern and less of a passing phase, especially as the National Anthem protest continues onward.”

Christy Strawser of CBS Detroit attributes the decline in NFL viewership to the Boycott NFL movement:

“The #boycottNFL hashtag on Twitter has hundreds of participants who are urging others to send a message to NFL owners and Roger Goodell by sitting out games, turning off the TV and refusing to buy merchandise.”

An example is James Olson of Birmingham, Michigan.

A Sports Illustrated subscriber since fourth grade, Olson watches NFL games on TV to escape from the endless political bickering. But with more and more “Kaepernick” national anthem protests, he feels like politics has taken over his favorite sport, too. So he’s tuning out.

Olson said: “I want to say to these guys ‘If you weren’t playing in the NFL, you would be working at McDonalds. I think people have had it. Sports used to not be a stage for this, and now it is, so I’m turning it off. I refused to watch the Chicago-Philadelphia game because they were going to protest …You start to figure out you can get along without football, there are other things out there I can do. We’re also pissed that the owners aren’t doing anything, that the coaches aren’t doing anything and the coaches aren’t doing anything. You can do this on our own time. Rent a stage somewhere and see if you can get a crowd of 70,000 people. The owners should force them not to use the NFL as a stage for their political beliefs. Once this whole thing starts, it was like ‘you know what, you’re a moron. What is wrong with you?’”

Olson spent his Sunday, instead, watching part of a soccer game, spending time outside, and then working out.

He’s not alone.

African dictator is a cannibal; eats opponents’ testicles & brain

We are in the 21st century, but the president of Equatorial Guinea is a cannibal.

equatorial-guinea-map

John Shammas reports for the UK Mirror, Sept. 11, 2016, that Teodoro Obiang Nguema, 74, has ruled over Equatorial Guinea since 1979.

Nguema came to power by overthrowing his uncle, Francisco Macias N’Guema, who had Nguema’s family murdered.

Known as “torturer-in-chief,” not only does Nguema torture and oppress his political opponents, many say his depravity goes even deeper. They claim Nguema is a cannibal who skins his opponents alive and devours their testicles and brains as a way to boost his sexual prowess.

Severo Moto, a political rival of Nguema, said in a 2004 interview with Spanish radio: “He has just devoured a police ­commissioner. I say devoured because this commissioner was buried without the testicles and the brain. [He] wants me to go back to Guinea … [so he can] eat my testicles.”

Having remained in power for almost 40 years, Nguema is said to increasingly believe himself to have God-like powers. One of his former advisors said: “He can decide to kill without anyone calling him to account and without going to hell because it is God himself, with whom he is in permanent contact and who gives him this strength.”

There are unconfirmed rumors that Nguema has prostate cancer. His son, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, 46, who serves as a vice president, would be his natural successor.

By the way, Equatorial Guinea has the lowest average IQ in the world, of 59, which means the average Equatorial Guinean is a moron (the definition of “moron” is an IQ of 51 to 70).  See “How smart or stupid is your country?

There are other African cannibal dictators, including:

  • Idi Amin, who ruled Uganda from 1971 to 1979, was reported to cannibalize the bodies of his political opponents but kept their severed heads in refrigerators. After he was deposed in 1979, he first fled to Libya, then Saudi Arabia where he lived the last few years of his life, paid $30,000 a month by the Saudis, until his death in 2003 at age 78 from kidney failure.
  • Jean-Bédel Bokassa, the leader of the Central African Republic from 1966 to 1979, was also said to be a cannibal. In 1977, emulating his hero Napoleon, he crowned himself emperor of the Central African Empire in a ceremony costing $20 million (11.8m). Overthrown by French troops in 1979, Bokassa went into exile in France where he had a château and other property bought with the money he had embezzled. He returned to the Central African Republic in 1986 and was put on trial, found guilty of the murder of schoolchildren and oher crimes, but was cleared of charges of cannibalism. His death sentence was commuted to life in solitary confinement, but was freed just six years later in 1993. In 1996 he proclaimed himself the 13th Apostle and claims to have had secret meetings with the Pope. He died of heart attack few months later.
  • Joshua Milton Blahyi, a tribal priest-turned-army leader known as General Butt Naked (for going into battle naked, believing that his nakedness protected him from bullets), led a mercenary unit during the First Liberian Civil war in 1989. (Liberia was founded in 1847 by the first “back to Africa” movement of American blacks.) Blahyi claimed he had a vision in which he was told by the Devil that he would become a great warrior and should practice human sacrifice and cannibalism to increase his power. He said in an interview with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: “Sometimes I would enter under the water where children were playing. I would dive under the water, grab one, carry him under and break his neck. Sometimes I’d cause accidents. Sometimes I’d just slaughter them.” In January 2008 Blahyi confessed to taking part in human sacrifices which “included the killing of an innocent child and plucking out the heart, which was divided into pieces for us to eat.” In 1997, Blahyi converted to Christianity and is now the president of the End Time Train Evangelistic Ministries Inc, headquartered in Liberia. In the United States, Pastor Robert Letner Jr. founded the Trilateral Church of the South based on Blahyi’s message of redemption and forgiveness.

We recoil in horror, as we should, at these reports of African cannibalism, but what about the horrors that go on every day in Planned Parenthood clinics across the U.S., where the body parts of aborted unborn humans are sold for profit? Hmm?

Hollyweird Actress Wants Schools To Educate Girls About Masturbation

Apparently this young Hollyweird womyn knows what’s best for others’ children.


From HuffPo: Shailene Woodley has always used her platform as a celebrity to speak about the issues she cares about. 

The “Snowden” actress has campaigned for Bernie Sanders, has spoken out against the Dakota Access pipeline and has been an ardent supporter for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. In a new interview with Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, The Edit, the actress addresses another cause she’s passionate about: sex education for women. 

“As a young woman you don’t learn how to pleasure yourself, you don’t learn what an orgasm should be, you don’t learn that you should have feelings of satisfaction,” Woodley said. “I’ve always had a dream of making a book called There’s No Right Way to Masturbate.” 

Woodley, who played a pregnant teenager in her breakout role on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” also shared why it’s so important to educate young girls about their bodies. 

“If masturbation were taught in school, I wonder how [many] fewer people would get herpes aged 16, or pregnant at 14?” Woodley asked, before delving into her unique childhood and upbringing.

The 24-year-old actress said that her home had a “revolving-door policy,” which allowed anyone who needed a place to stay the chance to live (and even vacation) with her family. But it was her mom and dad’s parenting technique that stood out the most in the “Snowden” actress’ memory. For example, Woodley said that a fight with her brother would lead to a punishment of sorts ― hugging her sibling on the lawn (i.e., in public). 

“The whole time you’re just seething, you’re disliking this person with so much energy, but if you let go you have to stay there for an extra hour. That was the kind of reverse, manipulative psychology my parents were into!” Woodley said of her dad, who is a psychologist, and her mom, who is a counselor.  

My family is super fucked-up in many ways, but they are also my everything,” the actress said, adding that she was still “grateful for the shit that happened.”

Chicago police solving fewer killings than other cities

chicago

From Fox News: Chicago police are solving homicides at a far lower rate than their counterparts in some other major cities, which may reflect how hard it is for detectives to crack the culture of silence surrounding the violence committed by the city’s street gangs.

Of the 432 homicides committed between January 1 and August 16 of this year, the department has solved 92, or 21 percent of them, the Chicago Tribune reported.

When homicides committed in all years are added in, the department says the clearance rate is about 30 percent. But even that figure is lower than the 49 percent clearance rate in Philadelphia and 56 percent clearance rate in Houston, which ranks just behind Chicago in terms of population size.

Experts say one reason so few are solved is that, as police have long said, so many are related to gangs in the poor neighborhoods where most of the shootings occur. They say witnesses who live in these neighborhoods are afraid to come forward out of fear of retaliation and a gang culture in which gang members have been historically unwilling to cooperate with police.

Others say that manpower on the police force may be a factor. “Homicides have gone up and the number of shootings has gone up; and the number of detectives has gone down,” said Fraternal Order of Police President Dean Angelo.

In fact, the FOP says the number of detectives has dwindled from 1,151 in 2009 to 863 as of July. Not only that, the union says the number of evidence technicians, whose job is crucial to investigations, has dropped from 113 to 84 over that span.

This comes amid a sharp spike in the number of homicides and shootings this year.
