  • 'Undercover Boss' Bikinis Sports Bar Episode Outrages Fans Over Sexist Content

    Just Jared ^ | MON, 29 DECEMBER 2014
    The latest episode of Undercover Boss has caused quite a controversy among viewers based on the content. The episode featured a company called Bikinis Sports Bar and Grill, where all the waitresses and bartenders are required to wear a bikini top and jean shorts. The CEO Doug Guller even trademarked the term “breastaurant” and says the company’s four values are booze, food, sports, and sex. In the first segment, Doug shadowed a bartender who was wearing a t-shirt during her shift. When asked why she wasn’t wearing a bikini, she said she didn’t feel comfortable wearing it on television. She...

    Looking at the memorial service and subsequent funeral for Officer Rafael Ramos, I was struck by how many officers were in attendance, how intricate and well coordinated each phase of the ceremonies were performed. It's a terrible thing, of course, that these good policemen were murdered, but then I began to wonder if there is a set rule in how each incident of a downed officer is to be observed and conducted? They could not possibly have an equally lavish, equally attended memorial service and funeral for each American Officer killed in the line of duty, even were this the...

    It stands to reason that if abortion is viewed as morally and legally correct, other immoral acts will become socially acceptable as well. Now, according to a judge in Australia, incest is one of those acts. During the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister, Judge Garry Neilson said that incest may no longer be morally unacceptable because the only reason it is criminal is due to the potential for abnormalities in any conceived children. Neilson said that thanks to contraception and abortion, there is no longer that risk. The man on trial had raped his sister...

This is a marked change from 1960, when 73% of children fit this description, and 1980, when 61% did, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of recently-released American Community Survey (ACS) and Decennial Census data. Rapid changes in American family structure have altered the image of who’s gathering for the holidays. While the old “ideal” involved couples marrying young, then starting a family, and staying married till “death do they part”, the...

Naturally my sister-in-law is all about hard left politics and gun control. My nephew, a high school senior, is in total lockstep. After he'd been reading it for a few hours I asked him if there was a coupon in the back for range time.

    Having introduced the matter of North Korea, however, the film unfortunately does require some attention, if only to disabuse prospective viewers of any hope that it has any redeeming value. Notwithstanding the protections provided by the First Amendment, there is a valid question whether the assassination of any living head of state, no matter how heinous the individual or his regime, is suitable subject matter for a major studio motion picture. If one objects on moral grounds to any such depiction, it's hard to know where to direct one's concern. The Sony Corporation, not to mention the stars and originators...

    Two days before Christmas, members of a rural Christian congregation in the eastern city of Wenzhou welded some pieces of metal into a cross and hoisted it onto the top of their worship hall to replace one that was forcibly removed in October. Within an hour, township officials and uniformed men barged onto the church ground and tore down the cross. […] That means that the worshippers in Wenzhou, like many Christians in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, will worship this Christmas under a cross-less roof. Provincial authorities have toppled crosses from more than 400 churches, and even razed...

The pews filled at Baghdad’s Sacred Heart church, as people remembered the darkest year in memory. Blast walls shielded the church and seven policeman flanked the outside of the house of worship, in an indication of the government's fear of an attack on the religious groups by jihadists who consider them non-believers. The congregation sang in unison: “Praise Jesus, our Lord. Oh praise him” as incense burnt in the darkened church.

Responding to two anonymous complaints, officials in Ohio’s Sycamore Township said on Tuesday they have ordered Jasen Dixon to take down his display by Friday because it violates local property maintenance codes.

    Federal officials have moved closer to overturning a decades-old ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men, but activists say the proposed alternative would continue to stigmatize men who have sex with men. The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday it will recommend lifting the lifetime ban early next year, replacing it with a policy barring donations from men who have had sex with another man in the previous 12 months. The change would overturn a 31-year-old policy that many medical groups and gay activists say is no longer justified, given advances in HIV testing. But activists questioned whether...

So, naturally, this gave the Stars' entertainment team an ample opportunity to stir up a little national fervor in the proud American city of Dallas, Texas.
