  • Blacks struggle with 72 percent unwed mothers rate

    11/08/2010 10:21:24 AM PST · by roses of sharon · 87 replies
    *** The black community's 72 percent rate eclipses that of most other groups: 17 percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics and 66 percent of Native Americans were born to unwed mothers in 2008, the most recent year for which government figures are available. The rate for the overall U.S. population was 41 percent. This issue entered the public consciousness in 1965, when a now famous government report by future senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan described a "tangle of pathology" among blacks that fed a 24 percent black "illegitimacy" rate. The white rate then was 4 percent....

    Cyn Bird grabbed a torn piece of notebook paper to scribble the secrets spilling from her mother's mouth as she neared death: The mysterious Miami doctor named Katherine Cole who delivered and supposedly sold babies to couples. The phone call on Jan. 12, 1962, that a baby girl with sky blue eyes was available. The $2,500 price tag. After 46 years, Bird had learned the stunning truth about her birth from her mother. Bird was adopted. Illegally. ``How do you wake up at my age and realize you have no idea who you really are?'' asks Bird, a New Jersey...

The thought that Nancy Pelosi will no longer be the speaker is a GREAT JOY!!! I can hardly stop grinning. But, this is just one step on a long journey. Babies are still being butchered, and all the other ills and evils that plagued our nation are still rampant. If we are going to restore this Republic, this is not the time to party; it is time to press those in power to give us ACTION,...

    A Cabinet minister was branded 'abhorrent' today after saying that the state should not provide limitless support to benefits claimants with large families. Campaigners reacted with fury after the Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt savaged the policy of sizeable handouts totalling more than the average household earns. Mr Hunt claimed that the Government's proposed cap on benefits reflected the need for claimants to 'take responsibility' for their children.

  • Black Panthers: King Samir Says Whites Use Black Babies As ‘Alligator Bait,’ Laments FOX

    Well, it looks like the New Black Panther Party is finally back in the news once again. A couple of months ago, as many of you will remember, Attorney General Eric Holder dropped the voter intimidation case against the Philadelphia chapter after they were caught on video carrying batons at a polling station in ’08, which led to a firestorm of videos being released against the group. Now, a new video has surfaced showing King Samir saying that whites use black babies as ‘alligator bait’, while lambasting Fox News for the coverage after it was found the case was dropped....

    Looks like the AFL-CIO is no longer even trying to hide the fact that it no longer sports a traditionally American political outlook. The labor union has announced that it is joining a voter registration drive called One Nation Working Together. This coalition is filled with some of the most extremely leftist groups in America today including the ACLU, Enviro extremists, La Raza, Code Pink, various anti-war groups, and the Communist Party USA. This new move by the AFL-CIO finds hearty support from the People's World newspaper, a publication dedicated to communism and the "direct descendent" of the communist Daily...

    Ralph and Wynona Passow bought their first camels a decade ago to rid their farm of weeds. The camel herd has grown to more than 30.Lanky legs and neck sprawled too far forward, then too far backward. That black, furry newborn was going to stand and nurse somehow, Passow decided. The mother camel blinked long, dreamy eyelashes and watched carefully as Passow coaxed the big baby to the mother's side. "The females are lovely," Ralph Passow said, watching his wife try to turn the baby toward the patient mother. "But the male camels will kill you." About 30 minutes earlier,...

    Conservatives despise him. Many liberals remain stubbornly unimpressed. Now, even babies — sweet, lovable, barely sentient babies — have turned on President Obama, the man with whom they once invested so much hope. Though he tries time and again to connect with these impressionable young citizens, it is all in vain, for his overtures are met only with cold shoulders. Tiny, cold shoulders.

    Women tried to steal $256 worth of clothes from JCPenney Two women's well planned scheme to steal clothes from a JCPenney was almost executed flawlessly, except for one minor detail. They forgot the 10-month-old infant they brought along for the caper. Because of the oversight, Crystal Whitaker, 23, and her 16-year old accomplice were arrested over the weekend. Whitaker was slapped with a slew of charges, including child neglect, child abuse and theft for the crime, which took place Friday at a JCPenney in West Palm Beach, the Palm Beach Post reported. The two women brought the baby along as...

    This is just awesome!!! From the Jefferson City News Tribune: HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) — Army Capt. David Cooper was in Afghanistan when his daughter was born in Missouri. But thanks to technology, he was able to not only witness the birth but help coach his wife through labor. David and his wife Laurie used Skype and, though they had some trouble connecting throughout the day, it worked perfectly for two hours before Charlotte Rose was born. Laurie says she and hospital staff were able to see the sun come up in Afghanistan as the baby was being born just after...

    A couple have been arrested after the bodies of eight new-born babies were found at a house in northern France. The corpses were discovered in individual plastic bags hidden around the property in the village of Villers-au-Tertre, about 35 miles from Lille. A French judicial official said the parents of the babies have been detained. The couple are both in their 40s. Officers began searching the house after a tip-off two days ago, French news agency AFP reported. It said they initially found two bodies, then brought in sniffer dogs and found six more in the house and garden. Local...

No harm came to any of the children thanks to neighbors who took care of the three tots after finding a tearful 3-year-old boy and his NAKED 2-year-old sister roaming the second-floor hallway of the family's Arlington Avenue apartment building at about 8:15 p.m. with no adult supervision, police spokesman Lt.

  • Babies born outside working hours are 'more likely to die' (Government HC)

    The UK Telegraph ^ | July 16, 2010 | Rebecca Smith
    Research involving one million births over 20 years found that those born outside the normal nine to five Monday to Friday working hours were more likely to die. The principle cause of death in these infants was lack of oxygen which can be due to a lack of senior clinical staff to spot the problem and react quickly. The researchers from Cambridge University said the overall increased risk was small, the difference of one or two extra deaths per 10,000 live babies born, but extra staffing would minimise the problem. It comes after research published last month found patients were...

    Alternate headline: “Nervous looks now being exchanged in Republican corridors of power.” To listen to the media, you’d think opposition to birthright citizenship is the province of alleged fringe-dwellers like Rand Paul (and George Will!). Not so: Per a Rasmussen poll taken last week, 58 percent of likely voters oppose it. That’s not exactly what Brewer’s talking about, though. Her point is that even if a kid is an American citizen — and presumably, even if he was born and raised here and speaks only English — we don’t cut his parents a break on amnesty. If deporting them means...

    "Anchor babies" isn't a very endearing term, but in Arizona those are the words being used to tag children born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants. While not new, the term is increasingly part of the local vernacular because the primary authors of the nation's toughest and most controversial immigration law are targeting these tots - the legal weights that anchor many undocumented aliens in the U.S. - for their next move. Buoyed by recent public opinion polls suggesting they're on the right track with illegal immigration, Arizona Republicans will likely introduce legislation this fall that would deny birth certificates...

    Five years ago Molly and Zachery Gray were in the midst of a dark, lonely spiral. It began with Molly's first miscarriage. "It was a really emotional process of being so joyful and so happy and ready to make that step into parenthood and that being pulled away from you," said Molly, 32. "[The pregnancy is] happening and all of a sudden it's gone. It's really hard." After a second miscarriage the Grays were on a desperate hunt for answers. After Molly got pregnant a third time, she heard about a small study to test the blood of pregnant women...

    ALMOST half of Australians believe that China will become a military threat to Australia within 20 years, prompting record support for the US alliance. According to the 2010 Lowy Institute foreign policy poll, 46 per cent of people think China will be a threat, with 19 per cent of them rating the possibility as "very likely". And 55 per cent of the 1001 people surveyed named China as the world's top economic power, compared with 32 per cent for the United States. The reality is that China is Australia's number one trading partner, but its economy rates number four, behind...
