    Here are the countries Trump has banned travel from: Let's see, if you haven't been an enemy of the United States since the 1970's, we certainly made one out of you. We overthrew your leaders and then bombed the Shiite out of your people, leaving you without a functioning government. We can do all that but, Gosh Damn, we cannot restrict immigration from those same countries? Syria. We invented Assad for whatever reason and continue to manufacture Bull Shiite about them? We then arm Assad's competition in a totally NOT secret operation, which continues to this day. Why? WTF did...

    What's Up With the Synod? ^ | 10/12/15 | Jeanne Smits
    We can be confident in assuming that Pope Francis is in favor of finding a way to administer Holy Communion to those divorced, remarried, or actively homosexual. He would be in favor of either changing Church teaching or changing Church practice, i.e. finding a loophole in which he doesn’t have to promote heresy via a declaration, but rather, showing a false sense of “mercy” towards the sinner. How can I be so certain that he wants to defy Christ’s teaching? Simple. Cardinal Kasper said so. Cardinal Kasper, much like a priest exorcising a brand new baby in the old form...

    It is very important that the synod does not have the spirit of “all or nothing.” It is not a good way. The synod cannot have winners and losers. That is not the spirit of the synod. The spirit of the synod is to find a way together, not to say, “How can I find a way to bring my position through?” Rather: “How can I understand the other position, and how can we together find a new position?” That is the spirit of the synod.

    My "Aha Moment" happened because of a package of hamburger meat. I asked my husband to stop by the store to pick up a few things for dinner, and when he got home, he plopped the bag on the counter. I started pulling things out of the bag, and realized he'd gotten the 70/30 hamburger meat - which means it's 70% lean and 30% fat. Read more at

    Al Gore, though not divorced from wife Tipper, confirmed he is indeed dating environmental activist Elizabeth Keadle. “I don’t want to get into my personal life, but we’re a couple,” the 66-year-old former presidential candidate told Politico. The former Vice President and his wife shocked supporters in 2010 when they announced their separation after 40 years of marriage. The parents of four have yet to actually divorce. One year after the split, their daughter Kristin told People magazine she couldn’t imagine her parents ever dating other people — but her prediction failed to prove true.

    Political Wives' 'Tipper Point' Is Way Too LateBy Sandra Kobrin WeNews commentator Thursday, May 19, 2011 Maria Shriver asked for privacy this week in the matter of her breakup with Schwarzenegger over his "love child." Sandra Kobrin says sorry, but when a woman stays married to a powerful womanizer, the personal turns deeply public and political. Tipper Gore is the woman now divorced from her husband, former Vice President Al Gore, a prominent social activist, after 40 years. In June 2010, she gave notice just three weeks before allegations of sexual abuse by her husband against a massage therapist in...

His second wife, a cousin, was irresistible because she did everything he wished and nothing he didn't. "That alone made me love her." His third wife won him because she submitted to his every request. "I saw her, I liked her. I went to her parents and asked for her hand in marriage." Wife No. 4 was very obedient. So was wife No. 5.

    Gore to young advocates: Battle industry lobbyists to turn the tide on climate By Ben Geman - 04/15/11 09:10 PM ET Al Gore told young green energy advocates Friday that progress on global warming must come from a strong grassroots movement that can counter the oil and coal lobbies, which he alleged have “paralyzed” governments. Gore – who compared action on global warming to the Civil Rights movement – was the keynote speaker at Power Shift 2011, a Washington, D.C. conference attended largely by college students. “It’s true that governments by and large have been politically paralyzed because the energy...

    A 12-hour standoff ended this morning with a north Houston man lobbing Molotov cocktails at Houston Police before taking his own life rather than vacate a home he'd lost to foreclosure. James Hahn, a chemist, had told police he would not be taken from the home alive, said Capt. Bruce Williams, an HPD spokesman. " 'You know what I do for a living and you know what I am capable of,' " said Williams, recalling one of the conversations police had with the man on Wednesday. The standoff began at 1:10 p.m. Wednesday when police said Hahn pulled a gun...

  • CA: Divorced couple faces off in city council race

    If the mud slinging in a city council race this fall seems right out of divorce court it could be because two of the candidates are a former husband and wife. Leah Berlanga, one of seven people running for three open seats, said Monday that her former husband, Frank Berlanga, entered the race to harass her. "I'm not going to let somebody intimidate me," she said during a news conference in front of City Hall. Frank Berlanga, 53, was arrested Friday, the day after he filed his papers to run, and placed in San Mateo County jail without bail for...

    For the second time in two years, California lawmakers are pushing a bill that serves the interests of a billionaire who wants to privatize California's system of public courts and limit access to judicial records. The billionaire, Ronald W. Burkle, is a former supermarket magnate and a big contributor to the Democratic Party. --snip-- Two years ago, Burkle was unable to convince a judge to seal most of his divorce records, so he pressed lawmakers to hastily pass a law that would require judges, upon a party's motion, to seal any documents that mention a party's financial assets. That 2004...

    Twenty-five years ago, most men in the Tampa Bay area married by age 35. But since 1980, the number of never-married men 35 to 55 has jumped sevenfold. ST. PETERSBURG - On the eve of his 50th birthday, Robert Mendenhall was trying to decide whether to spend the big day with someone new or with his ex-girlfriend. She had held his interest the longest: eight months. Mendenhall, who works in regional sales for a roofing and window company, hangs out with half a dozen never-married men in their late 40s and early 50s. They are successful at their jobs, keep...

    Conservative radio talk show host Michael Reagan is a man with a mission. In his new book Twice Adopted, Reagan recounts his path through a painful and confused childhood to becoming a man of faith – a history he thinks can speak to many. Reagan was adopted into a life of privilege shortly after his birth. This good fortune imposed a high cost on the young Reagan, however, including years spent at boarding schools, the divorce of his parents (“where two adults take everything that matters to a child, smash it up, leave it in ruins on the floor, then...

    <p>True meaning of giving ST. LOUIS (AP) — A divorced man donated part of his liver to his ex-wife earlier this year — at the suggestion of his new fiancee. Doctors at St. Louis University Hospital said the transplant may have saved Vivian Corrie's life. Corrie, of Troy, Ill., learned in 1995 that she had primary biliary cirrhosis, a genetic liver disease that can lead to life-threatening complications. Five years later, Corrie's brother discovered he had the same disease. Before he could receive a transplant, he died in 2001 at 56.</p>

    I am writing this to make this Legal Tragedy better known and also in hope that someone could help the thousands of us in this tragic situation. Like many Americans at this time, I have been laid off. This in itself is bad enough for most Americans, but those of us that have been divorced face a Legal Tragedy that is against The Constitution and all moral concepts. Men are almost exclusively affected by what I am about to tell you. This shows the discrimination of the courts and the laws in this country. Since I have been laid off,...

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger, one of the nation's most popular radio talk-show hosts and the most successful on-air counselor, is no longer practicing the rituals of Judaism – a religion she converted to a decade ago in her 40s. ''Almost 10 years ago, I talked on the air about becoming a convert to Judaism,'' she told her listeners last week. ''I was open on the air at that time about that evolution. Well, I would say within the last year I have had a de-evolution.'' Where is she now spiritually? ''Nowhere exactly,'' she chuckled. ''Suspended animation. I still see myself as...
  • Does a Divorced Man Have the Necessary Character to Make a Moral Leader?

    10/05/2002 5:37:17 AM PDT · by jstone78 · 139 replies · 272+ views
    I was reading a news story on Bob Torricelli, and it indicated that he is a divorced man. It also reported that he has an eye for the ladies, and that he once dated Bianca Jagger. In the post-Clinton era, we can no longer talk of separating an elected leader's private life from his public life. Questions that people would have been embarrassed to ask a generation ago, are now fair game. Politicians have always known that the American people prefer to elect people who are not only pro-family in their policies, but are also pro-family in the way they...
