Get on your A-game, BP!

May 28, 2010 5 comments

You know, I thought I would be pretty late in discussing the events thanks to an oil rig explosion. I figured that, by now, this problem would have been resolved but as I sit here and type my heart out to you all, we are losing close to (if not over) 12,000-15,000 barrels of crude oil every, single day. This is a devastating tragedy that we’ll see the effects of for a long time to come and no one is doing anything about it besides watching the destruction it has caused. What. The. Fuck.

At this point, with the devastation that has occurred, you’d think British Petroleum would attempt to try every sound idea out there to stop this from continuing. I mean, this is simply ridiculous! I think the people who can make a difference within BP are busy sitting in their offices made solely of money, on a chair made of silver dollars, behind a desk made of the tears, blood and sweat of their under-paid workers. Well, hey, that’s why they don’t give a fuck! While we’re trying to save our country from a continuous spill of the sweet Texas Tea, they’re busy sippin’ on English Tea and munchin’ on crumpets laughing manically at the disaster they caused. Stop to think of the visual. Okay, back to reality. To British Petroleum, fuck you! I hope you choke on your crumpets and one of your misplaced, yellow TEETH! Take that you uptight, useless twat.

I’m so glad it took nearly two weeks (or was it more?) for President Obama to stand up and say, “wait, I just remembered I am the President of this country and it’s my job to step up!” Well no shit, what were you waiting for and what have you been doing the entire time this BS was happening? Did you think the Gulf of Mexico actually BELONGED to Mexico? HA! HA! HA! Even Kevin Costner has a solution and if he can handle a world entirely made of water and Whitney Houston, he can do this. Give the man a chance, hell, anything is better than staring at the disaster occur while you’re busy pointing fingers at WHO MAY be responsible.

To settle that, I’ll tell you who’s responsible: the idiot who didn’t think to put pressure valves at every 150 yards to hinder a leak or by the entrance of the hole. Genius, pure genius. Give that man a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing, we gave one to Obama so why the hell not! Now that we settled whose responsible, let’s work together on fixing this. Shall we?

What are your opinions on this? What are your ideas to fix this? How honest can you be and what is your HONEST FACTOR?


Girls, Gyrating Hips and Booty Shorts — OH MY!

May 17, 2010 22 comments

If you haven’t yet seen the video of eight and nine-year-old girls dancing “professionally” to Beyonce’s “All The Single Ladies,” here is your chance. This video went viral after concerns of the girl’s innocence were questioned based on their dance moves and costumes. This video is a pedophile’s dream and this video plastered all over the internet because parents do not know when to step up and stop what isn’t right. After you watch this video, I think you too will realize just exactly ISN’T right.

Here’s a warning to all idiotic parents out there that allow their children to be displayed in this way. There are people out there who want to have sex with your children, they’re called pedophiles. Age doesn’t matter and it’s your job as a parent to put some fucking clothes on them and have the knowledge that gyrating hips for nine-year-old girls is not proper behavior for their age regardless if they’re dancing. Throw your kid a fucking Barbie doll or an Easy Bake Oven and secure their innocence before it’s too goddamn late.

It’s amazing how some parents will sacrifice their children’s well being in exchange for fifteen minutes of fame and a piece of shit two dollar trophy. This is your child we are talking about and while your daughters may have displayed amazing athletic skills to dancing enthusiasts, they also may have just displayed jack-off material for closet and convicted child molesters and pedophiles. Take your head out of your asses, the world isn’t about sunshine, puppies and rainbows– at least, not anymore. This world is getting scarier and scarier by the day and for you to throw your child into this world in booty shorts and tube tops is DISGUSTING.

There is a line and the booty popping is where you crossed it. I understand costumes are costumes, but there are costumes for adults and costumes for children. I, in part, do blame the dancing instructor for allowing such dance moves for these little girls but I blame the parents for not standing up and saying, “hey, something isn’t right here.” It doesn’t matter if these girls did not feel their moves were “sexy,” the fact is that these moves were perceived as sexy by normal concerned Americans from all over this country. These little girls don’t know what sexy is, that’s why they’re called little girls. Sadly, though, little girls sometimes turn into older sluts and whose fault is that? When does the transformation from girl, lady, or woman to slut happen? At dance class?

SWAT- “Special Weapons and Animal Torture”

May 8, 2010 10 comments

Thanks, John, for bringing this story to The Honest Factor’s attention.

There’s a special place for people with authority issues or people who need a gun in their hands to feel special and apparently that spot is at the SWAT team. If you haven’t seen this video that went viral May 2010, perhaps you should. In this video, with “objectionable” content and language, you’ll witness the Missouri SWAT team invade the house of a suspected drug kingpin while he, his wife and seven year-old child slept.

Only, their intelligence seemed to be a bit off. Police found a grinder, a pipe and a small amount of marijuana in the home enough for a misdemeanor charge and second-degree child endangerment. Let me get this straight… your “tactical” team storms into the home of a sleeping seven year-old child, fires shots and kills one of their dogs in front of said child and yet this man is the one facing child endangerment charges for smoking a little marijuana in his own home? What a backwards country we live in.

They said the dogs acted aggressively enough to warrant fired shots, but what do you expect when a slew of unknown strangers barge into their home? These men think with their guns, not with their brain and that’s what we get for hiring a bunch of idiots to execute a plan put together by the one’s with the brains. War, whether it be the War on Drugs or the War of Terrorism, isn’t only about the ability to take a gun and win the fight by murdering every mother fucker who gets in your way. You think we would have learned that by now, but maybe I’m just putting too much faith into a team put together by a bunch of gun loving rednecks.

I’d like to give props to the person who filmed this raid in action and had the balls to put it up for the world to see. Make your opinions known here on THF! How honest can you be and what is YOUR honest factor?

The Future of Ground Zero? — HELL. NO.

Thank you, Anonymous Reader, for requesting that The Honest Factor dedicate a blog to this.

If you haven’t heard yet, you’re about to and I hope you voice your disgust with this decision like I am about to.  A building damaged by debris from the September 11, 2001 attacks will soon be a thirteen-story mosque. Yes, you read right.  I wonder who’s the liberal asshole who thought THAT would be an “awesome” idea. While we’re at it, I’d like to add a few sarcastic amendments to this plan:

  1. Make a dedication to Japan where Pearl Harbor once stood.
  2. Build a memorial for Timothy McVeigh, where the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building once was.
  3. Construct a shrine for Ziah Jarrah (the terrorist who led the United 93 hijacking) at Stonycreek Township in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, where United 93 crashed.

We seem to be more interested in being tolerant to religion and politically correct than respectable to the lives that were lost in an attack involving Jihad MUSLIMS. Men, women and children died because of the radical beliefs of a sect of this religion. This is an obvious trojan horse and in no way should we allow such construction from happening. While as an American, I am proud of our right to freedom of religion (and speech- because without, THF wouldn’t be here), there is a place for everything. There is a time for religious freedom and a time to be sensitive to what happened there. I’m sure there are other places you can stick a Mosque than right near the footprint where the World Trade Center once stood.

What the fuck are you thinking?

This country is too busy being politically correct and religiously tolerant to just stand up and say NO! Thanks, but no thanks. Go do your religious wailing elsewhere.

Be sure to sign the petition to show your disapproval of this plan! Click here to sign the petition!

Too Close for Comfort

May 5, 2010 19 comments

First and foremost, let me state how grateful I am for the hard work the NYPD, FBI and other involved agencies displayed this past week after a botched car bombing in Times Square. What could have been a very tragic and devastating event, was evaded thanks to sharp civilians, skilled police officers and experienced agency officials. However, don’t pat yourselves on the back just yet, Homeland Security. To be honest, that fucker got way too close to making a clean escape for you to gloat about his capture.

What, exactly, is the purpose of a “No Fly List” if the list is only effective in holding back a five-year-old with a name matching that of a terrorist? The list is, quite frankly, a joke and there are one too many loopholes involved in it. It was easy for the terrorist, Faisal Shahzad, to make a last minute ticket purchase, allowing him to bypass the “No Fly List” initial review. He shouldn’t have been on that plane, plain and simple (pun intended), and the “No Fly List” failed us.

Now that Shahzad is in custody, we must do what is right (because he only deserves the utmost respect) and give him a fair and unbiased trial, if convicted, to be judged by a panel of his peers (Osama bin Laden, Najibullah Zazi, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab — because really… who would anyone consider him their “peer?”) I say BULLSHIT. Why is all this political correctness necessary towards those who were attempting to bomb our people and flee the country in an attempt to avoid imprisonment? The only real punishment I see fit is “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” No, it wouldn’t be right to put that fucker in that same SUV, fill it with the same barrels of gasoline, tanks of gas and fireworks, and blow it up like the FOURTH OF JUUUULY! No… that would be inhumane! He deserves to rot in a jail cell, while tax money (half your paycheck, just to remind you all) goes to feeding him, clothing him and keeping him warm and comfortable. Is it just me or is something not right here?

I’d also like to add that this is an on-going investigation and the suspect, Faisal Shahzad, has not yet been convicted at the time of this post and a trial has yet to begin. We hope that the involved agencies can find enough evidence to secure an arrest.

How do you think Faisal Shahzad should be punished, if convicted, and what are your opinions regarding the work of the involved agencies during this near-tragic event? How honest can you be and what is your HONEST FACTOR?

Stop Blaming Toys, Start Blaming Parents!

April 29, 2010 7 comments

Toys have been banned in some California fast-food “Kid’s Meals” this week in another way for our country to push the blame elsewhere. After a 3-2 vote by Santa Clara supervisors, meals with more than 485 calories must do without the little piece of shit toys we all looked forward to as children to get with our meal. What ever happened to accountability? Have we succumbed to blaming little .02 cent toys for the reason all your children are fat? I’m honestly getting tired.

The age group for people whom request “Kid’s Meals” are, usually, children. Well no shit! I guess that’s why they call it a “Kid’s Meal.” Kid’s are usually, to my knowledge, considered between the ages of 3-13 (and even if we were to extend that age to 15, our logic would still uphold). Children of this age aren’t capable of getting in a car, driving to their local McDonald’s or Burger King and buying a “Kid’s Meal” all on their own. They need the help of their parents for transportation and even the money to purchase said food. Did it ever dawn on you that, perhaps, your child is obese because of the parent’s negligence in choosing a more hardy and healthy meal and not the fault of a piece of shit toy?

Hey, parents! Stop bringing your fat kid to McDonald’s! Let’s try that before we blame manipulative advertising, genius marketing and a dinky piece of shit toy for the reason why your kid is round. Have you ever heard of the word “no?” Using that word would save your child from a unhealthy lifestyle, medical problems and school bullying. If your kid wants a toy, bring them to Toys ‘R Us and purchase them a hula hoop (not a video game, or what’s the sense?). Your lack of accountability disgusts me. Take back your power before the government takes it out from under you and uses the excuse that they’re trying to help the country.

Toys in “Kid’s Meals” have been around since 1979 and this so-called “Obesity Epidemic” is only a new issue. Back then, parents knew they had to power to say “No!” and used that power to their advantage. Only recently have people become lazy. They are lazy to say “no,” lazy to make a home-cooked meal, lazy to be a good parent and this laziness is the reason why your kids are fat, not a toy stuck between fries and a hamburger… dumbasses. When your child actually eats the toy, then you’ll have a reason to blame it. Until then, start blaming yourselves.

What is your opinion on this? How honest can you be and what is your HONEST FACTOR?

Gosselin Children Get Work Permits

April 27, 2010 6 comments

Kate Gosselin, do you support child labor? Let’s face it, without your eight, the only other TV shows I could see you doing is “Kate Without a Date,” “Kate Minus Her Mate” or “Kate the Irate.” You’re not entertainment material if it wasn’t for your children. Do you realize you’re sacrificing a normal childhood for your kin in exchange for a paycheck and a couple more minutes of fame? Shame on you.

A CNN article written on April 26, 2010 wrote “Gosselin Kids Get Work Permits for ‘Kate Plus 8.'” This has got to be a misuse of work permits for children. According to the state of Pennsylvania Child Labor Laws, “minors under 16 years of age may not be employed.” Yet, these children, obviously under the age of 16, were just cleared of getting Work Permits. According to our research, they were supposedly cleared for an Entertainment Work Permit for minors, a California-state work permit. I was under the impression that labor laws were on a state to state basis and what one state allows, another may not. Can a child be cleared for an Entertainment Work Permit in a state they aren’t necessarily working in? ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8’ was filmed in Pennsylvania, so why are their children allowed to work under a permit provided by California?

Further more, child labor laws explain that a child’s education should not be disrupted for the sake of work, yet I can recall an episode titled “Jon and Kate Plus 8: the First Day of School for the Sextuplets” where their children were filmed during a key part in their education, when building blocks for the rest of their lives are constructed. Jon and Kate were exploiting their children then, and Kate is doing it now– with a legal work permit backing her up. I also want to add in the law regarding how long a child is allowed, per the work permit, to be behind the camera lights. How do we know, for sure, that while the production of this ridiculous show all these guidelines are upheld to? It seems to me that what is taped, even after editing, is more than 40 hours a week (the normal work week for an ADULT). Some food for thought.

Kate Gosselin, you were a horrible dancer and America voted you off. With the lift-off of this show, you’re an even worse mother. The difference is, your children can’t vote you off. Do the right thing for your children and stop the reality TV madness in the lives of your eight children. Let them grow up without a camera in front of their face and stop attempting to suck the entertainment dry for your last seconds of fame. Go be a mother. According to CNN, Gosselin commented, saying “I’m a working mom, I’m single and I have to provide for my kids.” Yes, we understand that, but there are many women in your position and no one else has the luxury of using their kids on reality TV in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Go work at the mall or something, your situation is far from reality.

Shame on you, Kate Gosselin!
