FLATUS Show 157 - Herring Boxes without topses

In this episode: Hello! Flatus Show listeners. This week I look at the prisons in which I live. I think it is time to look at ourselves and surpass our fears so that we can be all we can be. Whatever, we'll do it together. . I also have THREE new songs! Make sure you listen for all of the implied and implicit meanings in the show. Also, the GAY AGENDA failed at interrupting Randy and FFC on their honeymoon. I was hoping to cause coitus interruptus, but it didn't happen. We were successful with the frest fires. Now if only we can finally kill off the last Ivory Billed woodpecker! I have a True American History segment as well as a Brenda Starr update! Thanks so much for listening. I'd love to hear from you so please call the comment line or leave a comment on the blog. Please take a few minutes to write a review for The Flatus Show at iTunes. Thank you.

Manhunt 3 - Who profits?

From: manhuntserviceman
Subject: Important message regarding your Manhunt account.
Date: Fri 12 Sep 2008 07:51 AM
Dear kentie1964,

Hi there, this is Travis, the Director of Customer Service and your recent inquiry was forward to my attention. We're very happy to have you as a member, even more so as a paying one. Yes we admit it, we're in the profit making business. At the same time we also support a number of charities each year, (Aids Walk Boston - just to mention a local one you may be aware of), as well as partnering with a long and growing list of health organizations, both in the US and abroad. Team Manhunt is made up of men & women, from a wide variety of ethnicities, folks with a variety of sexual orientations and political views. As for your request for a list of top dollar earners, we're a privately held company and will be unable to provide you with this information.

That being said, I hope that in the end you choose to remain a paying member of Manhunt, deciding that a paid membership is a good value, providing you with access to meet great guys for sex and more.
Thank You,
Travis and the Manhunt.net Customer Service Team
Kentie's response on this blog:

It is unclear who is profiting from the dollars I give to Manhunt for their services. Furthermore, what health organizations does Manhunt support: Baptist Hospitals, Ex-Gay therapy retreats? Who knows? Something seems fishy to me. I didn't ask Travis. I wonder if he would tell me.

You know Travis writes about admitting that Manhunt is a profit making business. I wonder why he wrote that? It is good to make money, but who is making the money? Is that money funding movements to restrict my civil liberties? Funding Ex-Gay groups? Funding McCain, Pat Robertson, Oral Roberts?

Of course, because it is a private business, and there is nothing wrong with that, the public cannot scrutinize it that way it can a publicly traded business. Too bad. It will be harder to do the research.

Not to sound paranoid, but isn't it perfect situation? Using SEX, market to gays and Let them support their opposition.

Just my thoughts.
Kentie

You know, I've been thinking of renewing, but I wonder who is benefiting. How many homphobes at Manhunt are taking my hard earned "gay" dollars and using them to support right wing wack jobs? Can you answer me that? Perhaps you can give me a list of the top dollar earners at Manhunt so I can research them.

A Divine Proof of Innocence

A Devine Proof of Innocence

To: flatusshow@gmail.com
Hi, Kentie.

In reflection of your comments on last weeks show, in reference to archaic trials of proven innocence by way of physically impossible tests against human nature and reasonableness, I wanted to offer some possible explanation to the origin of such practices as those you described – licking a hot object without reaction or burn.

Human societies often possess an inherent belief in the absolute divinity of the state of innocence. In this consideration, some ancient cultures held a sincere belief that good forces would exonerate the innocent from condemnation by means of tempting a higher power to come down from the proverbial heavens and give “the innocent” self-proving, supernatural ability, if those gods could be coerced into following simple human customs and instructions of tribal law.

And is modern, Western society so far removed from similar superstitions? We seem to hold that our laws are logical, reasonable and failsafe via checks-and-balances that are self-correcting and sophisticated enough to punish only the guilty parties while freeing victims of being wrongly convicted. But DNA testing of latter years has proven this to be far from the case as politics and plea-bargaining mixed with unequal representation and influence has turned our justice system into a convoluted affair.

Yet our attempts at correction of such shortcomings are slow at best. And I would assert that our belief in the perfectibility of our social collective consciousness runs the risk of blinding us to the pitfalls before us. In this, we are little removed from tribal law via media sensationalism and a corrupt court. Perhaps we ourselves believe that God’s presence will surely sweep down upon us to free innocent people from being shackled and imprisoned if there is any mercy or justice within His silent voice and uncertain existence.

Aren’t we tempting God to reveal Himself when we throw an innocent person into a jury trial of foolish people, much as a hot spoon dipped in fire that a victim of justice must unwaveringly endure?

Good points, Christen. Our system does have flaws. Maybe it's that our system, though slow to change, does and can change. At least that is what I hope. I guess the question is, how do we 'change' the system? Is there really any fair system?


Thanks for writing,
Kentie

Perhaps we could start with a jury of our peers, in the original definition. While prosecutors would have society believe that a jury of family members, neighbors and friends would be inherently partial and bias, history of tribal courts contradict that assumption, as to demonstrate that real Justice, with less corruption, can often be had within a jury trial of people who are well acquainted with a defendant. And if the accused is indeed convicted beyond a reasonable doubt by such a jury, one can rest assure that Justice has likely been fairly served.
