Alright, so maybe celebrating by months isn’t very professional… But we’re excited about our one month anniversary here at The Mental Recession!

We’ve had plenty of exciting developments here in the first 30 days, including:

  • Over 18,750 readers – that’s pretty good for the first month.
  • Linked to from such prestigious conservative sites as – Instapundit, the Other McCain, Right Wing News, Linkiest, Big Government, Doug Ross, and NewsBusters.
  • Lauded for our work in covering the upstate New York voter fraud case, and the Democrat cover-up of an abortion doctor now being charged with murder.  Okay, lauded might be a strong word, but it’s certainly been appreciated coverage.  🙂
  • Currently sitting at 113 on the Technorati list of top U.S. political sites.  Again, not too shabby for a brand new blog.

We just wanted to say thanks to all those who have stopped in to read our ramblings, especially those who have taken the time to make comments and have their voices heard as well.

We’d also like to hear some more feedback.  What can we do to make the site better?  Any comments/suggestions?  Do you have something you can contribute to The Mental Recession?  News story or commentary?  Please drop us a line at

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for your support!

Covering Sex at Occupy Events

January 9, 2012 at 5:21 pm (Crabs, NewsBusters, Occupy DC, Romance, Sex, Soap, Tim Graham, Washington Post)

Cute couple…

Must be another slow news day at the Washington Post.  And because of it, I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

The headline at NewsBusters says it all:

WaPo Tells of Protester ‘Cuddle Puddles’ and ‘Occubabies’ on the Way

Well, once you overlook the rampant head lice, lack of soap, and openly defecating on police cars, what’s not to love?

NewsBusters Tim Graham reports:

The Post’s Sunday front page was dominated by the headline “LOVE AMID THE TENTS.” The biggest “news” of the day was casual sex, hippie-style.

A gag-inducing two minute video on their site can be seen below:

Graham continues –

Post reporter Annie Gowen proclaimed that “As the Occupy movement enters its fourth month locally, it has spawned two full-service camps, more than 100 arrests and an ongoing constitutional debate over the right to free speech on federal land. But a combustible combination of youthful energy, enthusiasm for shared ideals and tight living quarters has given rise to something else: Romance. Lots and lots of romance.”

And the Washington Post went on from there…

Medics at both D.C. protests routinely hand out condoms. At McPherson Square, there are also pregnancy tests — at least one of which has come back positive. Indeed, Occupiers are beginning to joke that a string of Occubabies may appear come June

Occubabies?  No word on whether or not STD’s will heretofore be referred to as Occucrabs.
