As bad as this story sounds, it’s worse. It’s much worse.

Apparently there were two little girls, and one or both suffered from “Reactive Attachment Disorder.”  This is a disorder where a child has not been allowed to form bonds with a parent or caregiver. And, one thing these kids need is a stable household… which is exactly what this idiot politician did not give them!

Get this:  He adopted the girls. He collected a check every month from the state to help support them. But, he handed them over to a “Friend” to care for them… someone who raped the six year old. So then he handed them over to different friends to take care of… all the while he was still cashing the checks, pocketing the money.

And, again, this was with at least one of them suffering from “Reactive Attachment Disorder” — HIS CLAIM — and absolutely/positively needing a stable home!

Key Facts Revealed in the #LAPDShooting

So, when the LAPD shooting happened the narrative was set.  ”Officers kill unarmed homeless black man,” right?  That’s what we knew, but when you actually look at the video, which was even available to the press at that time, there’s clearly a lot more to the story than that.  

Knowing even more now, that the victim was actually an illegal alien and a convicted bank robber - at what point do we say, “let’s just wait for the facts to come in on a story that involves police brutality before we try them in a jury of public opinion”?

Listen, I get that there are some cops out there that abuse their power absolutely.  And I’m sure there are some racist cops who don’t give some black kids in this country a fair shake.  This is not one of those cases.

A Republican Oklahoma legislative committee has overwhelmingly voted to ban Advanced Placement U.S. History class because, they say, it  only teaches students 'what is bad about America'  and fails to instil a belief in ‘American Exceptionalism’. Similar attempts to ensure history is taught as propaganda with a right-wing bias are going on in other Republican-controlled states ..  (story here)

I'm 16 and I think the U.S. should have military training in high school and compulsory military service between ages 18-20. Everyone would have to serve, only those with legitimate reasons that physically prevent them from serving would be exempt. None of this "my faith doesn't allow me to do so"; if you value your faith over your country then that speaks volumes as to where your real loyalties lie

While I find military service to be very commendable in an individual, it’s not for everyone.  To be fully free, you need not apply by enlisting, you merely need be a citizen of this country.  This is the freedom that our military defends.

How do we completely destroy ISIS? We can destroy members of this organization but we can't destroy an idea..

You are correct in both parts.  We cannot kill an idea or a religious dogma.  However, we can destroy the majority of the fundamentalists two ways:

  • Have the moderate Muslims outweigh the radicals through social and political pressure.
  • Destroy the ones that will not convert to the peaceful side of the religion, because…let’s face it, they are all in at this point.  They will not change their ways and will fight this war to the death.

An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.
The question Monday from Republican Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.
Dr. Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.
The committee approved the bill 13-4 on a party-line vote. Barbieri, who sits on the board of a crisis pregnancy center in northern Idaho, voted in favor of the legislation.

These are the men making legislative decisions about our bodies.
