  • Now There Are Calls for Consent Before Kids Receive Hugs and Kisses from Grandma

    Kids own their bodies, and must give consent before hugs and kisses from Grandma. That's an argument from Scary Mommy: Teaching children about consent is crucial, so why do some parents still insist their kids hug and kiss relatives even if they don’t want to? As consent and bodily autonomy become a bigger conversation, there are those speaking out about how we need to give children agency over their own bodies — even if it means turning down hugs from grandma and grandpa. The piece shares this meme found on social media: Katia Hetter taught her daughter an important lesson...

    If she can’t handle a kickoff speech, how could she handle the presidency? ....It’s hard to screw up a campaign launch. But Hillary Clinton might be about to do it....Clinton plans to announce her presidential campaign at noon on Sunday, en route to Iowa, “on Twitter . . . followed by a video and email announcement.” ...Why? Because for someone who has spent her life in public, Hillary Clinton is very bad in public. And her team knows it. .....For decades, Hillary Clinton has had her entire life scripted. She has existed in a world insulated by handlers and managers...

    I’m overweight, and I hoard things: Hillary goes human in lead up to 2016 while showcasing herself as a mom and grandma Hillary Clinton, who has in past had trouble talking about her wealth and life experiences, is intensifying an effort to humanize herself to likely voters. Clinton has increasingly made mention of her roles as both a mother and grandmother in remarks, framing her public policies in the context of the hardships she dealt with while raising only child Chelsea and the hopes and fears she has about the world her granddaughter Charlotte will inhabit. During a Tuesday speech...

    The Minnesota State Patrol says a driver who bounced in and out of a highway ditch unknowingly lost her backseat passenger, who was ejected through a broken window. The patrol says the 72-year-old driver, Louise Ericksen, was driving southbound on Highway 72 in Beltrami County Sunday when her car strayed into the ditch, hit a sign and broke a back window. As the car bounced along the rough terrain, 15-year-old Kendall Ericksen was ejected out the broken window. The driver maneuvered her Impala back on the highway and continued southbound without realizing Kendall was missing.

    The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a “Honk If You Love Jesus“ car sticker. I was feeling particularly excited that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it in the corner of my rear window. Am I glad I did! What an uplifting experience followed!

    Vittorio Vincent Valdez, a 27-year-old Half Moon Bay man, appeared in court last week for allegedly beating his grandmother for driving too slowly. According to the San Mateo County district attorney’s office, Valdez’s 82-year-old, 105-pound grandmother was driving him from Palo Alto to Half Moon Bay in her BMW on Sept. 24. Turns out he needed the ride because his license had been suspended due to a citation for driving under the influence. Shortly after reaching Half Moon Bay, Valdez allegedly started pounding on the dashboard and pushing his grandmother’s right leg down to get her to speed up. When...

    In Sagging Economy, Grandmas-For-Hire Take Off By MAUREEN MACKEY, The Fiscal Times September 24, 2011Linda Terry, at age 63, is bucking economic trends by not only having full-time work she enjoys – but getting paid to do what life has taught her. In an economy that continues to see a national jobless rate of over 9 percent – and even higher rates in the West, which now has an unemployment rate of 10.6 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics – Terry hasn’t had a problem finding work for more than two years. After signing up with an L.A.-based...

    I'm not actively seeking scriptwriting or script doctoring contracts right now. However, I do have a few free moments to assist the opponents of Texas governor Rick Perry's campaign for U.S. president. Everyone knows that nearly all of the nearly 25 million residents of Texas are idiots, and the ones who aren't are outsiders forced to seek low-paying jobs at colleges or universities in the state. Studies like these make it clear that we can also afford to pay teachers more, eventually advancing them to the high salary and benefits they deserve. All we need to do is assess intellectual...

    Via the Weekly Standard, we’ve joked about this sort of liberal messaging before but I honestly didn’t think we’d see it. Surely, after years and years of leftist whinging about “the politics of fear,” they wouldn’t resort to imagery of Republicans actually killing frail old ladies.And yet here we are.Philip Klein, who’s more in touch with economic reality than the authors of this spot, wonders when we’ll see an ad showing granny pushing kids off a cliff as an homage to the unsustainability of Boomer-heavy Medicare rolls. Would that ad be accurate, though? Young adults are famously pro-Obama; they’re inviting...

    That's OK, he wasn't planning on any speaking gigs from AARP anyway. As is his wont, libtalker Ed Schultz revealed his underlying opinion on a specific subject without even being aware he was doing it, this time on senior citizens. Here's Schultz on his radio show yesterday with his warped take on elders, after initially referring to Republicans' proposed budget plan calling for broad spending cuts over the next decade (audio) -- The path that the Republicans are taking to achieve this is what we call in the media, what I've called in the media for a long time, a...

    Yes..........................................................there is a Santa Claus! I remember my first Christmas adventure with Grandma.. I was just a kid. I remember tearing across town on my bike to visit her. On the way, my big sister dropped the bomb: "There is no Santa Claus," she jeered. "Even dummies know that!" My Grandma was not the gushy kind, never had been. I fled to her that day because I knew she would be straight with me. I knew Grandma always told the truth, and I knew that the truth always went down a whole lot easier when swallowed with one of her...

    Last December, Stark Country took a poll of country music and radio execs and asked them to name their most cringeworthy Christmas song. The hands-down winner was the 30-year-old classic “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” by Elmo & Patsy. Our readers’ comments about the song were unmerciful. NRG Media director of programming Jeff Winfield said, “Elmo & Patsy deserve a special place in hell.” Nine North Records president Larry Pareigis was especially colorful, calling the song “the bullet train of musical suck” and saying, “Elmo & Patsy is a flat-ass run to the finish line of recorded Christmas...
