Lily Niagara – Crazy Horse Saloon, Paris – 1959

Le Crazy Horse Saloon or Le Crazy Horse de Paris is a Parisian cabaret known for its stage shows performed by nude female dancers and for the diverse range of magic and variety ‘turns’ between each nude show. Its owners have helped to create related shows in other cities, and unrelated businesses have used the phrase “Crazy Horse” in their names.

The Paris Crazy Horse occupies former wine cellars (12 in all – knocked together) of an impressive Haussmanian building at 12 Avenue George V (from King George V, in French “George Cinq”).

Alain Bernardin opened it in 1951 and personally operated it for decades until his death by suicide in 1994.

Michele ‘bat-shit insane’ Bachmann: ‘I Want To Adopt The Reagan Tax Plan’

Via: TPM

In an appearance Thursday morning on Fox News, Michele Bachmann might have put forward the boldest tax proposal of all Republican candidates: Raising taxes to where they were when Ronald Reagan was president.

Bachmann criticized Herman Cain’s “9-9-9” tax plan, and its inclusion of a national sales tax.

“For my tax plan, I take a page out of one of my great economists that I admire, Ronald Reagan,” Bachmann boasted. “And under my tax plan I want to adopt the Reagan tax plan. It brought the economic miracle of the 1980s. Why not go with what works? I want to reinstitute the Reagan tax model from the 1980s.”

However, as has been previously documented, TAXES WERE HIGHER DURING THE REAGAN YEARS THAN THEY ARE NOW – both in terms of:

– the top income tax rate (for all but the final year of the Reagan presidency)

– and in terms of the overall tax burden

Duncan D. Hunter (R-CA) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

‘Hunter Warns That “The Homosexual Lobby” Wants A “Military Takeover”‘

Via: Right Wing Watch

While speaking today with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on his radio show Washington Watch, Congressman Duncan Dumb-ass Hunter (R-CA) accused “the homosexual lobby” of pushing for a “military takeover by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community” at the expense of heterosexual soldiers. Hunter was one of the staunchest opponents of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and told Tony Perkins that he predicted such a “takeover.”

Perkins: Let’s talk about this issue here, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, we knew a lot of this was going to happen, you’ve been pressing this issue from the very beginning. But just, I mean, days after this is signed into law, first we had the transvestites wanting to be allowed to come into the military, but now we have chaplains being ordered, or at least given the permission and of course we know what that means it means they’ll be pressured, to do same-sex weddings on military bases. Are they moving faster than you thought they would?

Hunter: No, in fact this is exactly what we knew would happen. We’re not especially clairvoyant, we can’t see into the future, but the homosexual lobby isn’t simply pressing to have equal status in the military with people that are heterosexual. They would like a military takeover by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community, and that’s what they’re going to keep pushing for until it happens.

Hunter: “I think that the Navy particularly has a problem with this because I think they’ve been lost since 9/11, except for the Navy SEALs, they don’t have anybody really that are in this fight that we’ve had in Iraq and Afghanistan directly. They’re more involved in the peripheral countries in Africa and Libya. I think that they were trying to become accepted, frankly, at the highest levels to the administration, and that’s one reason why they pressed forward with the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell so quickly and gave instructions to their chaplains to be able to marry same-sex people, once more in direct contravention of federal law.”

Reagan’s guy coming to NYC to show support of ‘Occupy Wall Street’

Via: Think Progress

Solidarity hero Lech Walesa [sic] is flying to New York to show his support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters. “How could I not respond,” Walesa told a Polish newspaper Wednesday. “The thousands of people gathered near Wall Street are worried about the fate of their future, the fate of their country. This is something I understand.”

***

Wałęsa was instrumental in organizing the Solidarity union that helped mobilize to overthrow the Soviet Union’s control over Poland. In 1983 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. None other than President Ronald Reagan — no left-wing, anti-capitalist activist — responded by praising Wałęsa’s leadership, saying he was “one of the world’s greatest labor leaders”:

REAGAN, former President of the Screen Actors Guild (UNION): “I’d like to take a moment this afternoon to send a moment of congratulation to one of the world’s greatest labor leaders, Lech Wałęsa. […] This award demonstrates that the world will always remember and will honor the commitment to freedom and the committement to free trade unions that Lech Wałęsa and millions of brave Polish people share.”

News Flash: pollen makes your eyebrows fall off!

Via: NY Times (Fashion & Style)

IT wasn’t quite the slip-up (or slip-down, as it were) most people expect during a presidential campaign, but whatever happened to Ron Paul’s eyebrows at Tuesday night’s debate certainly caught some viewers’ attention.

For those of you not yet riveted by the Republican race, Mr. Paul, the dark-horse libertarian with equally dusky brows, was a victim of hot lights, faulty adhesive or merely a devilish optical illusion when his right eyebrow seemed to dip toward the stage at Dartmouth College.

Seen on television, Mr. Paul appeared to have a second, thinner brow under the one headed south, creating a delicate X over his right eye.

Jesse Benton, a campaign spokesman, and certified ‘Paultard’, insisted that Mr. Paul had been the victim of the elements, namely a heavy pollen season (in the fall?; oh yeah, eyebrow fall) in Oin New Hampshire, and called accusations that he’d been artificially enhancing “stupid” and “insulting.”

“Dr. Paul’s allergies acted up a touch,” Mr. Benton said in an explanation that might raise some, you know, questions.

Not that Mr. Paul would be blamed for trying to keep up with bushy brows like Rick Perry’s, whose upper-eye area is full, or Mitt Romney, whose orbital outliers are sometimes speckled with gray. Whatever the cause, eyebrow toupees appear to be a lourishing business. Experts in the field of eyebrow maintenance said that if the falling follicles were artificial, the buck should stop somewhere. Marina Valmy de Haydu, the executive vice president of the Christine Valmy beauty schools, said most glues used to apply false eyebrows were designed to withstand the rigors of stage lights and intense questions about the national debt.

“Those glues are almost indestructible,” Ms. De Haydu said. “So whoever put it on for him did not put it on correctly.”

Not that anyone did (no, of course not).
