The UK now has an agency in place that judges whether advertisements can be offensive (to anyone) and is banning them as needed. Not sure the advertising industry will be able to thread the needle on this and show ads with people in them anymore.

A ban on ads featuring "harmful gender stereotypes" or those which are likely to cause "serious or widespread offence" came into force in June.

I'm neutral on it. I don't even watch commercials that aren't movie ads. I'm just expressing worry for the advertising agency.

I found this surprising as I don’t think there are many Mormons in Eastern Montana.

So I left the house with my son for a doctor's appointment a couple of hours ago. Three houses away we see several police cars. As we drive by the house, we see guns drawn as they surrounded the house focusing on the back patio. We get to the entrance of our 20 lot subdivision and more police cars are blocking traffic. They let us go. Come back an hour later and the main road is still blocked. I pull over and after 5 minutes they opened everything up.

Got a call from a neighbor who talked to the police and said there were two Hispanic men that were apprehended for breaking in to a house and tearing it up. The two do not speak English and it's possible that a 3rd suspect got away.

I wish I had seen these guys to ask them what they thought about the new Burger King tacos.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/politics ... index.html
GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa questioned on Wednesday whether there would be any population left on Earth if not for rape and incest, a remark that has drawn condemnation from both Democrats and Republicans.
You know, King gets himself in trouble a lot but he's probably not THAT far off in a sense. Yes, if there had never been rape and incest there would still be a human population. But it would be a different set of individuals. It's quite possible that NONE of us as we currently are would exist without rape and incest.

Homo sapiens evolved 200,000 to 300,000 years ago. We've been civilized for maybe 5,000 to 6,000 years. I guarantee you that during the hundreds of thousands of years prior to civilization there was an awful lot of males taking what they wanted. Also, there was an awful lot of what we now call incest.

Even after civilization started there was an awful lot of both things. Genetic research, for example, led to the estimate that Ghenghis Khan has about 16 million descendants living today. I guarantee you that not every woman that had sex with Ghengis Khan wanted to. Also, incest was acceptable in many civilizations until just the last few hundred years.

I think it's very likely that, when the chain of ancestors for any of us back through 200,000 to 300,000 years ago is traced back, there is at least one link associated with rape and/or incest. And if that one link is removed we do not exist.

The objective reality is that, had there been no rape and/or incest in the history of our species, there would be Homo sapiens now but it wouldn't be the same set of Homo sapiens that now exists.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?
