There might just be hope for the UK yet.

From Daily Mail: A newly-opened club in Barcelona claims to be the first in Europe to offer clients the chance to have sex with a doll.
Lumi Dolls says men (or women) can get into the mood by having low lighting in their room, candles and huge plasma TV screens to watch some racy movies. As a special offer, an hour with one of the life-sized dolls is £70 which will go up to £100 after the opening promotion.
There are four dolls to choose from, all with female body features and the club promises each one is washed and disinfected with anti-bacterial soap before it is re-used! Each of the dolls, which cost £4,300 and weighs 40 kilograms, are made from silicone.
Clients can choose from Lili, who is 161 cm tall and has Asian features; the blonde and ‘big-boobed’ Katy, who at 170 cm has pouty lips and piercing turquoise eyes; an ‘African’ doll named Leiza who stands at 168cm tall or Aki, who with blue hair appears to be modelled on Japanese anime.
Describing itself as ‘the first sex dolls agency’, Lumi Dolls has a rather delicate question and answer section on its website says of the quartet: ‘They are totally realistic dolls, both in the movement of their joints and in the touch, that will allow you to fulfill your fantasies without any limit. These Sex Dolls will make the experience more pleasurable, exciting and erotic.’
Clients, who are advised to ‘still use a condom’, have to pay at the front desk on leaving. They can even ask in advance for the dolls to wear a special outfit and to be placed in a specific position.
The new club is proving such a success that sessions are already booked up days in advance.
Similar dolls are already a great hit in Japan and Malaysia. According to the website, appointments can also be made for entire nights or for couples.
Play a game with me.
The game is very simple.
Just look at the pic below, and give me your FIRST gut reaction:
Is this a man or a woman?

Answer: It’s Barack Obama kite-surfing in the Caribbean, while on holiday on his billionaire pal Richard Branson’s Necker Island. (The Sun)
When I first saw the pic on Drudge Report, without any identification who the kite-surfer was, I thought it was a woman. Honestly.
How did you do?
It’s not a “political position.” Riiiiiiight.
The Nordstrom family has donated to republicans in the past. According to opensecrets.org, family members donated to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, with a lot of money going to other democrats lately (and no money to Trump, from what I can see). It’s a Seattle business, after all.
From Yahoo: Nordstrom will stop selling Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories, creating some questions about the future of the brand elsewhere.
The Seattle-based department store chain said the decision was based on the sales performance of the first daughter’s brand. Neiman Marcus may be the next one to pull back on the label, as the branded jewelry is nowhere to be seen on the upscale retailer’s website as of Friday.
“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance,” said Nordstrom in a statement emailed to The Associated Press. “We’ve got thousands of brands— more than 2,000 offered on the site alone. Reviewing their merit and making edits is part of the regular rhythm of our business.”
Nordstrom said that each year the chain cuts about 10 percent and refreshes its assortment with about the same amount. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season,” Nordstrom added.
Neiman Marcus couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. Macy’s and Dillard’s are also among the retailers that carry the Ivanka brand but didn’t immediately reply to AP’s query.
The move by Nordstrom Inc. comes amid a social media campaign called “Grab Your Wallet,” urging a boycott of stores that stock Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump products.
Wendy Liebmann, CEO of WSL Strategic Retail, says that retailers walk a tight rope when it comes to celebrity brands but given the politics surrounding the Ivanka Trump brand, that only adds extra controversy, particularly given such a politically divisive climate. Liebmann noted a decision of whether to pull a brand is politically loaded even if it’s based on poor sales performance.
“The brand is vulnerable,” Liebmann said. “Retailers view their role as having the right products for the right consumer, not being pulled in a political situation.” She noted that some shoppers may not want to wear the Ivanka Trump brand because they may want to avoid making a political statement.
Ivanka Trump announced earlier this month that she would take a leave of absence from her clothing and accessories business as well as the Trump organization.
According to a later article, the retailer also responded to the criticism on Twitter, saying: “We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not. Our customers can make choices about what they purchase based on personal views & we’ll continue to give them options.”
Ivanka Trump Brand responded to claims retailer Nordstrom dropped her fashion brand. “Nordstrom ordered both apparel and shoes for the spring, and followed through with the orders on the apparel,” a spokesperson for the Ivanka Trump brand told Refinery29 on Friday.
“They canceled the shoe order, kept the apparel order and moved the apparel from online into stores. It’s there,” the statement concluded. Rosemary K. Young, senior director of marketing at Ivanka Trump, also explained to Refinery29 that the brand is doing well, despite recent reports.
You don’t need to shop at Nordstrom to order Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories. Do so here.

The United States of America was founded as a republic — a representative democracy — wherein citizens make political decisions and resolve our political differences via the ballot and civil debates, not violence or the threat of violence.
On January 20, 2017, at an anti-Trump protest in Washington, D.C., a woman set fire to the hair of a Trump supporter. Fortunately, an alert good Samaritan quickly extinguished the fire.
For the purpose of this post, the woman in the blue-&-white Victoria’s Secret “Pink Nation” beanie hat will be referred to as “Fatty Firestarter”.
Here’s the video:
Setting someone’s hair on fire is battery — an intentional unpermitted act causing harmful or offensive contact with the “person” of another. According to the legal dictionary:
Battery is both a tort and a crime. Its essential element, harmful or offensive contact, is the same in both areas of the law. The main distinction between the two categories lies in the penalty imposed. A defendant sued for a tort is civilly liable to the plaintiff for damages. The punishment for criminal battery is a fine, imprisonment, or both. Usually battery is prosecuted as a crime only in cases involving serious harm to the victim.
The identity of the woman who set fire to the hair of a Trump supporter has been uncovered. Let this be a lesson to anyone who thinks they can get away with criminal wrongdoing in our time of ubiquitous cell phone cameras, the Alternative Media, and an army of ever-ready citizen sleuths.
This post is a presentation of the evidence uncovered in social media that Fatty Firestarter most likely is Norma Zahory. The evidence is comprised of:
To begin, Norma Zahory’s friends recognize her as the woman who set fire to the Trump supporter’s hair.
(1) Norma Zahory acknowledges to a Facebook friend that she is Fatty Firestarter:
(2) In a tweet, a friend named Portia Diaz cheers Zahory for setting fire to the Trump supporter’s hair (“cooking bacon at the rally”):
(3) Photos of Zahory posted to her Facebook page show that she is Fatty Firestarter (I drew the yellow circles around Zahory):
Below are comparisons of the faces of Fatty Firestarter and Norma Zahory, which show they are the same person (note that the photos of Zahory were taken at various times/years before the Jan. 20, 2017 incident):
Norma Zahory lives in Fairfax, VA near D.C., and works for a non-profit organization, Communities In Schools, which describes itself as “the nation’s largest and most effective organization dedicated to keeping kids in [public] school and helping them succeed in life” — whatever that means.
Communities In Schools is funded by the following institutions:

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
The Word of God
became flesh and dwelt among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only Son,
full of grace and truth.
To those who accepted him,
he gave power to become children of God.
Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus
by the will of God,
and Sosthenes our brother,
to the church of God that is in Corinth,
to you who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus,
called to be holy,
with all those everywhere who call upon
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
their Lord and ours.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Oxford Dictionary defines “holy” as a person who is dedicated to God, who is morally and spiritually excellent.
God created us so that we eventually will join Him in Heaven for all eternity. Since only holy people will see God face to face, that means as St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Corinthians, we are all called to be holy.
That sounds so daunting, doesn’t it? How do we become holy?
The answer: By putting on the armor of God.
As St. Paul counseled us in his letter to the Ephesians 6:10-16:
“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
St. Paul gave us the manual!
Here’s the manual on how to be holy:
I want to be holy, and I want you to be holy. Let us help each other to become holy!
And may the peace and truth and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,
