Lipstick dipstick

Bliksem, waarheen gaan die samelewing.  Hier is twee artikels wat die laaste week deur meeste van die koerante in die VSA gepubliseer is.  Ek het dit van Reuters afgetrek (ek hoop nie ek het enige kopieregte oortree nie).  Dinge soos hierdie laat my werklik die sogenaamde vooruitgang van die samelewing betwyfel.  Ek reken dit hang seker maar af van wat jou definisie van vooruitgang is.  Seks, drank en dwelms deur regeringsbeamptes en ‘n vrou wat haar sogenaamde maagdelikheid verkoop.  Magtig man, dit maak mos nie saak wat die prys is en hoe mens dit verf nie, dit bly prostitusie en niks anders nie.  Ten minste weet ons hierdie veiling is nie vir beeste nie, maar vir een flippen groot koei.  Dis hierdie tipe dinge in Navada wat my daarvan verhoed om die Grand Canyon te gaan sien.

Student auctions virginity, sparks online debate

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A 22-year-old woman in the United States is publicly auctioning her virginity to pay for her college education, sparking a heated online debate about sex and morality.

The student from San Diego, California, who is using the pseudonym Natalie Dylan for “safety reasons,” said she had no moral dilemma with her decision and found it “empowering”.

But few bloggers sided with her and some suspected her intentions.

“I don’t think auctioning my virginity will solve all my problems,” she told celebrity television show The Insider on Wednesday. “But it will create some financial stability. I’m ready for the controversy, I know it will come along. I’m ready to do this.”

“We live in a capitalist society. Why shouldn’t I be allowed to capitalize on my virginity?” she added.

The woman, who has earned a bachelor degree in women’s studies and now wants to start a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, is hoping the bidding will hit $1 million.

The online auction site eBay turned her down so the auction will take place at a Nevada brothel, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, where her sister is working to pay off her college debts.

The date for the auction was not immediately available.

In a flurry of media interviews and appearances, she admitted that her mother, a fourth grade teacher, does not agree with her decision. Many on the Internet also disapprove.

“Maybe this is the conservative in me coming out, but this seems so wrong,” wrote one blogger, Mike. “Isn’t this prostitution?”

“I must say I feel sad for the future of our society,” said Mike from Montclair State University in New Jersey.

“What disgusts me about this whole thing is the fact that she is promoting it so heavily. It seems less about having some guy pay for her virginity and more about trying to get her 15 minutes and a reality show,” said a blogger called “Ent Lawyer”.

She does have her supporters — not surprisingly Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch.

“I think it’s a tremendous idea. Why lose it to some guy in the backseat of a Toyota when you can pay for your education?” he told reporters.

En hier is die ander artikel oor manne wat mos lekker die soustrein ry.  Ek weet nie hoe hulle dit kan regverdig nie, maar uit die artikel blyk dit of hulle nie juis voel hulle het iets verkeerd gedoen nie.  BELAGLIK!!  Nevermind die owerspel, enigiemand (ten minste die normales) weet mos sulke tipe “gunsies” van jou kliënte of verskaffers af is mos onaanvaarbaar.  Die ergste daarvan is dat hierdie nie kliënte of verskaffers is nie, maar olie maatskappeie wat veronderstel was om deur die regeringsbeamtes ondersoek te word.  Nou ja, hulle het seker maar ‘n ander dipstick gebruik om die olie te meet.

Interior Secretary “outraged” by oil-sex scandal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne on Thursday said he was “outraged” by department workers who had sex, used drugs and took gifts from employees at regulated oil companies, while one senator called for a Bush administration official to resign over the scandal.

The Interior Department’s inspector general issued a scathing report on Wednesday that found “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity” at the department’s Minerals Management Service, whose employees handled billions of dollars in oil and natural gas supplies that were turned over by companies as in-kind royalty payments for drilling on federal lands.

“I am outraged by the immoral behavior, illegal activities, and appalling misconduct of several former and current long-serving career employees in the Minerals Management Service’s royalty-in-kind program,” Kempthorne said. “We will take swift action to restore the public trust.”

Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida called for the agency’s top head, MMS director Randall Luthi, to resign.

In response to the inspector general’s report, Luthi had said that “I do not believe Americans have lost financially,” but admitted “it is too early to tell” if government workers gave oil companies financial favors at the expense of taxpayers.

In a letter to Kempthorne on Thursday, Nelson asked for all department employees involved in the scandal to be immediately fired and for the secretary to ask Luthi to submit his resignation.

“Besides being a sad commentary on the failures of certain public servants, this case shows us how the oil industry can hold sway over government officials,” Nelson said.

Nelson called for hearings into the scandal by the Senate Commerce Committee, on which he serves. The House Resources Committee is planning a hearing on the matter next week.

While not responding directly to the senator’s letter, Kempthorne said: “We must and we will eliminate any remaining negative elements in the Minerals Management Service.”

In his report, the inspector general said some MMS workers in the royalty-in-kind program took cocaine and marijuana and had “illicit sexual encounters.”

Government workers also got drunk at social events with employees of oil companies doing business with the agency and MMS workers had “brief sexual relationships” with industry contacts, the inspector general said.

The oil companies named in the report were Chevron, Shell Oil, Hess Corp and Gary Williams Energy Corp.

    Ek dink dit is net siek. Die sogenaamde vooruitgang van ons samelewing is nie veel beter as die “sivalized” romeinse “empire” nie. Hoer bly ‘n hoer, of sy nou geld of iets anders daarvoor kry nie.
