Are There STD’s In The Happiest Place On Earth?

If you are anywhere near my age you will remember watching Walt Disney educational films back in school. (My personal favorite was the one about fire safety with Jiminy Cricket.) But chances are you never saw VD Attack Plan before. The really amazing thing about this movie is that is was made in 1973.

But it’s not as controversial as Song of the South.

This is an open thread.

    Obama declares Thursday ‘National Equal Pay Day,’ despite paying female staffers less than male counterparts

    President Barack Obama officially declared Thursday “National Equal Pay Day,” symbolically marking how much extra work women supposedly must perform to reach pay parity with men.

    “Women — who make up nearly half of our nation’s workforce — face a pay gap that means they earn 23 percent less on average than men do. That disparity is even greater for African-American women and Latinas,” Obama said in a statement issued Monday. “On National Equal Pay Day, we recognize this injustice by marking how far into the new year women have to work just to make what men did in the previous one.”

    While Obama, who signed the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to make filing employment-discrimination suits easier, has repeatedly lamented statistics showing that men generally earn more than women, the Obama White House has failed in recent years to pay female employees the same amount as male ones.

    A January Daily Caller analysis of the gender-pay disparities in the Obama White House revealed that while the women comprised approximately 50 percent of the White House staff in 2012, the median salary for female staffers was 13 percent less than the median salary of male staffers.

    Victor Davis Hanson:

    The War against the Young

    It is popular wisdom that President Obama’s progressive social agenda is predicated on widespread support from the younger, hip generation. Certainly, concerns like gay marriage, marijuana legalization, abortion, the DREAM Act, gun control, women in combat, and blocking gas and oil exploration and pipeline transportation all get a lot of play on campuses and in popular culture. And these wedge issues supposedly represent the future direction of the country — a wise agenda for liberals eager to cement a majority constituency for decades to come.

    But aside from the common-sense recognition that people become more conservative as they age and mature — and start paying taxes, and become financially responsible for their own children’s future — there is just as much likelihood that Barack Obama may inadvertently be building a conservative youth movement. Indeed, the new liberalism in all its economic manifestations is reactionary and anti-youth to the core. The administration seems aware of the potential paradoxes in this reverse “What’s the matter with Kansas?” syndrome of young people voting against their economic interests. Thus follows the constant courting of the hip and cool Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Lena Dunham, Occupy Wall Streeters, and others who blend pop culture, sex, youth, energy, and fad — almost anything to avoid the truth that today’s teenagers are starting out each owing a lifetime share of the national debt amounting to more than three-quarters of a million dollars. Those who ran up the debt enjoyed the borrowing, but won’t be around to pay back their proverbial fair share.

    Maybe these WH parties wouldn’t be so annoying if Obama at least pretended to be a working President instead of on the neverending campaign trail.

    I’ve never seen VD Attack plan before – I’m tempted to show it to my kids.

    Klown, I’m thinking of doing short reviews of non-Hollywood types of shows one can watch via the internet – what do you think?
    Need a good tag though.

      How come we’re so obsessed with sex and reproduction as a “civil right” that must be covered by insurance, but you’re on your own for other things like heart medication?

      In my state we have mandatory coverage for contraception and abortion, but if you have a life threatening infection, it’s really up to your insurance company how much they want to pay.

    It’s raining today and the local news is blaming “climate disruption.” This is one of the rainiest places on Earth! April showers bring May flowers. “Climate disruption” would be a sunny day, blue skies, warm temps!

    Also, I plan to slug the first person who whines this summer, “wahhhhh, it’s too hot out!”

      My kids’ high school gave out letters and jackets for the honor students just like they did for the athletes. They reversed the school colors to distinguish them. My son picked up a mix of letters, but no jacket. His sister never got an athletic letter, but she scored a “varsity” jacket for academic honors. It was a great program.

      Great idea. I got letters for band. Yup, band nerd. 🙂 We didn’t have anything like that for academics.

      Ahh, you must mean your real windows, because I’ve got Windows open myself. It’s closing the damn things down that’s always a problem.
