Sextortion?

I was leafing through BBC site and came across a term that I am unaware of…..SEXTORTION!  My first reaction was….”what the “f”?

Of course having a curious mind I just had to follow up on my curiosity.

This is what I read at first…….

Hundreds of thousands of men around the world are falling victim every year to a pernicious form of online crime.

It has been nicknamed “sextortion” and is a form of blackmail.

Victims are normally lured in through social media sites; the blackmailers are criminal gangs operating in countries like the Philippines.

Okay I have an idea of what it is but further investigation is needed…….

Sextortion - Last year, Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf became one of the nation’s most high-profile cases of “sextortion,” an increasingly common crime in which a hacker steals a person’s photos or videos (usually by hacking a computer, phone or webcam) and then demands some form of payment not to distribute them online. There are several different ways individuals can lose their private images to a hacker: an ex-partner can send shared images to a third party; the victim can be enticed or threatened into sharing them; the hacker can hijack an online account that stores these sensitive images; or the victim’s computer or mobile device can be infected by a Remote Access Trojan (RAT) that allows the attacker inside access. RATs allow the hacker to remotely enable the victim’s webcam to clandestinely capture images of them.

Let see….some hot little thing cons me into having some racy chat….then she records it and threatens to expose my dalliance unless I compensate her monetarily……that about it?

What to do…what to do?

Personally, I would get a good chuckle and tell her to knock herself out….even if I was married……why would I do that?

Simple….Kim Kardashian.  She is famous for nothing more than making a sex tape….it is worth a try.  I could use a few bucks more and I would call the National Enquirer myself….save her the charge.

You want to stop this sort of thing….then my answer….do not do it….you moron!

No Fool Like An Old Fool

Some much drama in the world….how about a little humor on a Friday?

How many times have you heard that old saying…..usually uttered after some story about some old fart that did something that some do not approve of….probably something they consider immoral or whatever……

Then there are times when the old saying does have some validity……and this is just such a situation…..

An 84-year-old New Yorker’s date with two 17-year-old twin sisters ended with the senior citizen tied up and robbed, according to police.

The New York Times reports that Paul Aronson met up with 17-year-old Shaina Foster last month through SeekingArrangement.com, a sugar daddy site that bills itself as a place “where beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships,” according to the Times.

After a first date, Shaina brought her twin sister Shalaine along to the second. The trio dined at an “expensive restaurant” and then Aronson invited them back to his apartment for a drink, court documents said.

That’s when Shaina told authorities things got out of hand.

“He asked to do things I wasn’t going to do,” she told Detective Darryl Ng. “He is ugly, old and disgusting. I tied him up. I took his money and left. He was starting to creep me out.”

The reason I re-tell that story is because of a report I read along those lines……

Newser) – The winners of “Darwin Awards” die in a stunning variety of stupid ways, but the great majority of those killed trying to clean chimneys with grenades, ride in shopping trolleys hitched to trains, and so forth have one thing in common: They’re men. A tongue-in-cheek study in the British Medical Journal calls this proof of “male idiot theory,” noting that out of 318 verified cases from the last 20 years, 282 Darwin Awards were awarded to males and just 36 to women. That gives men a “highly statistically significant” 88.7% of the awards for those “who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it.” Men who accidentally castrate themselves are also eligible for Darwins.

The finding “supports the hypothesis that men are idiots and idiots do stupid things,” the study’s four male authors write, explaining that men are more likely to take idiotic risks, sometimes when drunk or showing off—or often both, as in the case of three Cambodian men who played a form of Russian roulette by taking turns to stamp on a landmine until it exploded, killing all three of them. One author explains that “idiotic risks are defined as senseless risks, where the apparent payoff is negligible or non existent, and the outcome is often extremely negative and often final,” the Telegraph reports. The authors say they plan to further explore “male idiot theory” in “a semi-naturalistic Christmas party setting.”

Let’s be honest….we men can do and say some incredibly stupid stuff……and my fave “what were you thinking moment” was when a terrorist sent a later bomb….it was returned for lack of sufficient postage and the would be bomber open the letter and killed himself…..DON’T GET TOO MUCH STUPIDER THAN THAT!

Thoughts?  Come on ladies let them fly!

Women’s News

I am an opinionated SOB and I like it……but I do not post much on issue that concern women….not that I do not care ….just I am male and I do not feel that I have the expertise to comment without sounding a little naive…….I do hope my female readers will forgive me and understand….

But from time to time there are some news that I just cannot back away from….today are a couple of those issues……

First, there is the idiot on the Right….I know that does not narrow the field very much so I will name names…Ann Coulter….this is a woman, and I use the term loosely, that just cannot shut the Hell up…….her newest babble is on the issue of rape……..

Coulter dismissed the notion of date or acquaintance rape out of hand, insisting that unless a victim gets “hit on the head with a brick,” it isn’t a legitimate rape.

“People know what a rape is,” Coulter insisted, “and to have girls trying to get attention — from Lena Dunham to this poor psychotic at UVA, Lady Gaga claiming she was raped but she didn’t admit it to herself for five years. What major crime do people say, ‘I didn’t admit it to myself?’”

In a second part of the interview, the 53-year-old pundit said that liberals are vastly overplaying instances of campus rape, which, in her experience is generally perpetrated by liberal men like the “Clintons and Kennedys,” anyway.

Oh there is so much ugliness I could spread about Coulter….but I will refrain and allow my readers to do it at their leisure……

Second….there will always be a Right wing legislator that, usually male, that has a “good” idea when it comes to rape…..and this guy is NOT one of those people….instead he is a galloping a/hole….if anything………

A bill proposed by a Republican state lawmaker in Missouri would require a woman seeking an abortion to obtain notarized consent from the baby’s father, even if he is physically abusive toward her.

The bill’s sponsor, State Rep. Rick Brattin, told Mother Jones that while the bill has exceptions for rape victims and to protect the life of the mother, women in domestic violence situations are not exempt from having to ask the father’s permission. “What does that have to do with the child’s life?” Brattin said. “Just because it was an abusive relationship, does that mean the child should die?”

In explaining the bill to Mother Jones, Brattin channeled Todd Akin, the former Republican congressman from Missouri who, during a failed 2012 Senate bid, said that women who are victims of “legitimate rape” have mechanisms in their bodies that prevent them from getting pregnant. Brattin said his bill would require a woman to be able to prove that a “legitimate rape” happened in order to avoid having to ask for a man’s consent for the abortion.

“Just like any rape, you have to report it, and you have to prove it,” said Brattin. “So you couldn’t just go and say, ‘Oh yeah, I was raped,’ and get an abortion. It has to be a legitimate rape.”

Okay….a legit rape?  Old white guys are the most pathetic of Americans……they are stuck somewhere between the 18th century and 1950……

When this d/bag passes a bowling ball through his penis…then only then may he have a right to speak.  PERIOD!

A Bush In 2016?

Damn!  There has been a Bush or a Clinton since 1979…..in case your math is a little rusty that is………  45 years!

A gleeful media is all over the announcement that Jeb would actively explore the possibility of running from the GOP nomination…….it is the story of the week…….and no doubt by Friday you will be sick of all the crap associated with this announcement……

(Newser) – Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush today took his most definitive step yet toward running for president, announcing plans to “actively explore” a campaign and form a new political operation allowing him to raise money for like-minded Republicans. In a holiday message posted on Bush’s Facebook page and Twitter account, the son and brother of past Republican presidents said he discussed the “future of our nation” and a potential bid for the White House with members of his family over the Thanksgiving holiday. “As a result of these conversations and thoughtful consideration of the kind of strong leadership I think America needs, I have decided to actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States,” Bush wrote in the message, which was reportedly first “riddled with typos” but has apparently since been fixed. “In the coming months, I hope to visit with many of you and have a conversation about restoring the promise of America.”

Kristy Campbell, a spokeswoman for Bush, 61, said he will announce his final decision on whether to seek the nomination next year “after gauging support.” “This is a natural next step and represents a new phase of his consideration process,” Campbell said. That phase will include an expansion of Bush’s political operations. He said today he will start his own leadership political action committee in January, which will allow him to raise money and use it to support candidates in other races. In his statement, Bush said the committee “will help me facilitate conversations with citizens across America to discuss the most critical challenges facing our exceptional nation. The PAC’s purpose will be to support leaders, ideas and policies that will expand opportunity and prosperity for all Americans.” Politico reported yesterday that South Carolina could be pivotal to Bush’s success.

My guess is that he will run……Mitt and Christie are crying in their beers about now……..

Maybe Jeb should consider a couple of things before his decision is made…….one would be the opposition research into his life and such…..with as nasty as the Super PACs are….there is lots of stuff that could be the focus of some very negative ads……..Mother Jones has a few of them…….

Jeb Bush Just Took a Big Step Toward Running for President. Here Are 23 Reasons He Should Reconsider. | Mother Jones.

I have always said that Jeb was the smartest of the brothers….but it is time to end the dynasties of the Clinton and Bush…….

Is it laziness or ignorance that keeps the American people fixated on dynastic rule?
