  • MSNBC Guest Columnists Hint They'd Be Cool with Raising 'Age of Criminal Responsibility' to Say 25?

    01/08/2014 9:21:15 PM PST · by chessplayer · 53 replies
    "The New York State Legislature needs to Raise the Age of criminal responsibility, and they need to do it this year," demands the subheadline on MSNBC.com's landing page this afternoon for a story headlined, "Stop charging kids as adults." The column, co-authored by former NAACP president Ben Jealous and actress Rosario Dawson, promotes a push by the Citizens Committee for Children of New York [CCCNY] to change Empire State law so that minors aged 16 years old cannot be charged as adults. Jealous and Dawson don't disclose to what age they believe the age of criminal responsibility should be raised,...

    Two pregnant woman miscarried after a jealous friend poisoned their drinks, a court in Austria has heard. Secretary Angela Maier, 26, was desperate to have a baby of her own but suffered three miscarriages. The depressed woman was consumed with jealousy when she then learned that her sister-in-law and best friend were pregnant. Maier told a court in Klagenfurt, Austria: 'I couldn't stand the thought of them having babies who would be growing up when mine was dead. 'Mine should have been with them as well, but instead mine died while theirs went on.' She was suffering from depression as...

    Apparently in complete and utter denial of reality, Barack Obamaís campaign deputies seem to think that most Americans are simply dying to meet their candidate. Check out their latest missive to the masses, headlined in true internet troll style, ďSO COOLĒ: Benjamin -- Have you ever gotten to do something so cool you're almost jealous of yourself?

    PERC ^ | Summer 2006 | Carlos L. Rodriguez and Craig S. Galbraith
    In the past, most if not all North American indigenous peoples had a strong belief in individual property rights and ownership. Frederick Hodge (1910) noted that individual private ownership was ¬ďthe norm¬Ē for North American tribes. Likewise, Julian Steward (1938, 253) asserted that among Native Americans communal property was limited, and Frances Densmore (1939) concluded that the Makah tribe in the PaciÔ¨Āc Northwest had property rights similar to Europeans.¬í These early twentieth-century historians and anthropologists had the advantage of actually interviewing tribal members who had lived in pre-reservation Indian society.

    Conservative columnist Ann Coulter has made some enemies in her years as a right-wing firebrand, but she's still jealous of Sarah Palin's ability to agitate the left. "I especially love her for her enemies, I'm insanely jealous of that," Coulter said last night on MSNBC. "I love her for how she makes liberal heads explode." Coulter said she thought Palin could win the Republican presidential nomination, but that the former Alaska governor shouldn't bother running. "I think it would be a step down for her to run for president," Coulter said. "It's like saying Rush Limbaugh should run for president....

    Progressives have launched the left's version of the Tea Party movement.

"Having been confronted with the specter of the Tea Party . . . we felt it urgent to organize the majority of this country, which voted in 2008 and has gone back to the couch," said Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, one of the movement's...

Peaceful patriotism permits the trashing of our troops. Just now in a shocking scandal for adjectives everywhere, verbal authorities have booked articulate for bearing concealed racial overtones. We shouldn't, but we do get acclimated to this kind of rank pseudo-intellectualism after a while.

    Income disparities are an increasingly serious problem in this country. At present, the top fifth of the population receives more than 50 percent of the nation's annual income, while the bottom fifth receives around 3.5 percent. In addition, the percent of total national income has declined over the past quarter-century for the bottom 80 percent ó while the share of the top 20 percent has steadily increased. As a result, we are approaching the income disparity levels of a Third World country. Those who comment on America's income disparity often speak in terms of social stress.

    The debate about neonatal circumcision is over. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), neonatal circumcision is the result of ignorance, bad medical practice and American social and cultural pressure. Regarding the three most commonly cited justifications for neonatal circumcision (penile cancer, venereal disease and penile hygiene), the AAP now states that the benefits are negligible, which means that the majority of American men are walking around without foreskins for no good reason. Yet, the barbaric practice shows no sign of abating, and for this reason I plan to shed some light on the cultural dark spot of circumcision....

    France has found a new tale of good and evil about which to make clever conversation. As usual the villains are capitalism and America, and ďglobalizationĒ is the bogeyman combining the two malign forces which have, in their paranoid vision, conspired to diminish la France. Ho hum. The New York Times informs us that Parisian wine and film circles are abuzz with discussion of the surprise hit documentary Mondevino, which reportedly decries the ďglobalizationĒ and ďhomogenizationĒ of the world wine industry. Those under attack include Robert Parker, the American wine critic whose tastes have become the single most influential factor...

    The long knives have been unsheathed, and Donald Rumsfeldís back targeted. One of the most capable, energetic, intelligent, determined and articulate public servants in the history of the American Republic is under fire for not being omniscient and infallible, and for using an Auto-Pen to sign letters of condolence to the families of those killed in action. A classic orchestrated PR offensive is underway, bearing all the signs of the customary collaboration among the Usual Suspects in the capitalís media-political universe. Things were getting scary for the opponents of George W. Bush. Not only did he win a smashing electoral...

    Perhaps we have finally reached a turning point in which the Gordian Knot tying African Americans to the Democratic Party may finally be severed. The spectacle of white male leftists demeaning Condoleeza Rice as an Aunt Jemima, a black mammy out of Gone With the Wind, and a thick-lipped (!) bird (don't they have beaks?) may be the slap in the face necessary to wake up the majority of black people from their slumber in the tender arms of the left.

    I light the candles, as I have all the nights before, setting the stage - the pink night-shirt, the furry slippers, the rose-scented ungent with which I anoint my fingers. I loosen my waist-length hair from its clasp and approach the keyboard with anticipation. Who will it be tonight? Bush? Cheney? Kerry? Edwards? They all present delights, but it's not so much the man as the act of campaigning itself that thrills me so. Memories of Reagan suddenly stir - ahh, that brings a jaded tear. How innocent that first fling seems - The bedroom door bursts open; my husband,...

    MATHER, Calif. -- Terrorists are likely to attack California because they're jealous of the state, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asserted Friday as he reviewed California's first statewide terrorism drill. "We've seen from 9/11 terrorism is something that no longer happens on the other side of the world," Schwarzenegger said while visiting the Office of Emergency Services command center. "We are living in a state that is the number one place in the world ... This is why people are jealous. This is why people want to hurt us." California is participating in simultaneous drills with Virginia, under a Department of Defense...

    Posted on Wed, Jun. 02, 2004 Lakers likely to be very unlikable champions By Reggie Hayes of The News-Sentinel IF -- OK, WHEN -- THE Los Angeles Lakers win the NBA title this year, they'll be the most unlikable champions in history. Arrogant, bullying, condescending, the list goes on and on. And that's just their lawyers. Almost every previous NBA champion has had a sliver of charm. Even the Detroit Pistons in their "Bad Boys" era: Joe Dumars and coach Chuck Daly were the class exceptions to the crass exploits of Isiah Thomas, Bill Laimbeer and Dennis Rodman. Michael Jordan's...

    <p>The gym has Fox television on, and perhaps I should be grateful, because otherwise it would not have dawned on me just how popular and widely embraced stupid is. By stupid, I don't really intend insult. Stupid is a mental outlook that affirms the crude and base while eschewing the noble and thoughtful. It is an attitude of mind that can be adopted by both low lights and bright lights.</p>
