  • Dear Feminists, when did "yes" start to mean "potentially/maybe/definitely no?"

    I found this meme while surfing around online, and I'm curious if anyone wants to offer up their take. The term "feminist" is one that is so polarizing it tends to cut right down the left-right divide, but this one has me wondering.The rationale of people who defend the message this woman presents is that a woman isn't actually saying "yes" in certain instances, such as while under the influence of alcohol...Ok...This logic reminds me of a quote from British author Paul Johnson (from his book Enemies of Socieity), emphasis is mine... (I)t is essential to use words accurately and...

    In letter, Bill Clinton defends family foundation By: Maggie Haberman August 16, 2013 04:16 PM EDT Bill Clinton offered a strong defense of his family foundation and insisted reports of mismanagement and deficits were taken out of context, in an unusual letter posted on the group’s website. The Friday post also addressed, for the first time, the audit that the foundation conducted in 2011, which led to a series of recommendations to bring change to a loosely-run, personality-driven organization after its first decade into a more sustainable structure. And the foundation released the summary of that audit. POLITICO reported earlier...

    The nation's official poverty rate was 15.1% last year, that equates to a record 46.2 million Americans living in poverty. With poverty levels rising for the past three years, average median U.S. income falling back to 1996 levels and income inequality at the highest levels since the Roaring 1920s, many Americans are starting to wonder: Is the American dream dying? "The American Dream has been under assault for 30 years," says former President Bill Clinton. I spoke with President Clinton on the eve of the Clinton Global Initiative's annual meeting in New York Monday, where "jobs jobs, jobs" is one...

    (CNSNews.com) - An Ohio man says former President Clinton elbowed him in the face after a Sunday campaign rally in Canton, Ohio. The man told Cybercast News Service that he has not ruled out taking legal action against the former president. Robert Holeman, who supports the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), said he shouted Obama's name during the rally and then spoke to the former president as he was leaving the event. As shown on a videotape broadcast on MSNBC Monday morning, Clinton repeatedly wagged his finger in Holeman's face. At one point, Holeman said in an interview...

    Pakistan Rape Laws Draw Mixed Reactions November 15, 2006 2:56 PM EST ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistani lawmakers passed amendments to the country's rape laws Wednesday, ditching the death penalty for extramarital sex and easing a clause on making rape victims produce four witnesses to prove the case. The amendments enraged Islamic fundamentalists, but won cautious support from human rights activists, who wanted the controversial laws scrapped altogether. President Gen. Pervez Musharraf praised lawmakers for approving the amendments and criticized Islamic fundamentalists for their "unnecessary" opposition and claims that his government was acting against Islam.

    Former president Bill Clinton praised wife Hillary's prospects to be elected the next US leader, but said her possible White House run is a taboo topic at home. "I'm superstitious about it," Clinton told NBC television in an interview, saying that, for the moment, his wife's sole focus is her bid for reelection to the US Senate in November. "One of our family rules is don't look past the next election," he said. Clinton, interviewed in New York, insisted that his wife still has not reached a final decision about running for the White House, but said if she does,...

    Presidents and their wives have been an amorous lot, their White House years coming at the pinnacle of lives entwined. The men pursued and loved these women as intensely as they clawed to power and unleashed armies. "Touch you I must or I'll burst," Ronald Reagan wrote to Nancy three years before he became California governor. Lyndon Johnson, then a young congressman from Texas, declared to his valentine, Lady Bird, mere weeks after they had met, "This morning I'm ambitious, proud, energetic and very madly in love with you."

    Former President Bill Clinton returned to Buffalo Wednesday with a message to Democrats: Grab onto the many opportunities Republicans are handing you, and focus your message. "President Nixon looks like a Communist compared to these guys," he said, referring to Republicans in Washington. Clinton told some 300 local Democrats that Americans are rejecting public policy based on ideology, whether conservative or liberal, and instead want to return to results-based politics. "America is yearning for a sense of purpose and unity," he said at the Buffalo Convention Center. Among his other points: Afghanistan, not Iraq, is the most important military front...

    Does success make women less marriageableto men? In some cases, the answer is yes: Most women like to "marry up," and that is harder to do if a woman is on the top floor of her profession. But a bigger problem simply may lie in successful women's lack of planning for marriage, said Carrie Lukas, director of policy at the Independent Women's Forum. Most women want a loving husband and children, Mrs. Lukas said. If they know that is what they want,"then theyshould take that goal as seriously as their goal to reach law partner by age 35."

    US Republicans rebuff resolution demanding Iraq inquiry 14 minutes ago The Republican majority in the House of Representatives rejected a resolution calling for a "substantive" investigation into abuses before and during the Iraq war. The resolution was proposed by Democrats who have used increasingly aggressive tactics in Congress to draw attention to President George W. Bush's record on the war. Republicans in the House defeated the measure by 220 votes to 191. The Democratic resolution had called for an investigation into "the manipulation of pre-war intelligence", the role of Vice President Dick Cheney into Iraq's reconstruction, the leaking of the...

    Either Bill Clinton is not telling the truth now about the terrorist threat posed by Iraq during his administration - or he fibbed to the American people while he was in the White House. Clinton recently told his former staffer-turned TV commentator George Stephanopoulos that the U.S. government had "no evidence that there were any weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq. But a recent report in the The Weekly Standard headlined "Clinton Revisionism" unmasks Clinton's flip-flops over the Iraq weapons of mass destruction issue. For example, during an appearance on "Larry King Live" back in July 2003, the former president...

Richilano spoke on the second day of a two-day preliminary hearing in Arapahoe County District Court that concluded Wednesday. District Judge Marylin Leonard found sufficient evidence to bind Al-Turki over for trial on both kidnapping and sexual...

    One of the unfortunate diseases of the body politic has been the increasing politicalization of the US Supreme Court. This was not caused by conservatives; however, perhaps it should be solved by a conservative President. One outstanding chance is now upon us. Most likely, President Bush will take the safe road and go through the political gauntlet and appoint a known conservative judge. What we really need is a break in the partisanship of the appointment process. Nominating former President Clinton would give everyone pause and begin a process where politicians (mostly, but not exclusively Democrats) can cease making efforts...

There will also be uniform procedures for dealing with possible victims and suspected offenders, the officials said.

    SINSHEIM, Germany, Nov 18 (AFP) - A mosque in southern Germany has been damaged in an overnight attack with a molotov cocktail, the prosecutor's office in Heidelberg said on Thursday. Investigators said a bottle filled with flammable liquid was thrown at the main entrance of the mosque in Sinsheim but it rebounded from a pane of glass above the wooden door and burst into flames on the ground. A local resident saw the flames and put out the fire, which did not cause any damage inside the mosque. The cost of the damage to the outside of the mosque has...

    As Bill Clinton's library is unveiled at a gala opening this week, one thing is certain: His messy legacy will be on full display. One alcove will be dedicated to impeachment, and organizers have promised not to sidestep even Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones. The 58-year-old political superstar is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors a year to his library. "Bill Clinton is a rock star," said Skip Rutherford, head of Clinton's nonprofit foundation that built the $165 million library. "He is Elvis." The William J. Clinton Presidential Center, a metaphorical "bridge to the 21st century" cantilevered out...

    To all good people of countries other than the US- WE are now officially a rogue nation- please don’t blame the citizens of the US as we have been taken over by Nazis. Trust us, we are more frightened than you. There is no possible way that Bush is the most popular president ever. There is no way that he won this election. It is a lie, supported by fraudulent elections and corrupt government officials. There is no popular support for Bush, only Bush freepers on the net paid for by homeland security to convince other nations and naive US...

You delete remarks for no other reason but you don't like the thoughts expressed, (though mine was left for assument) inactivate my account, and preach free speech for all. My words weren't for the purpose of starting a war, only to say, "hey, what do you think about this?" I didn't get one intellgent arugment. Name calling yes, insults yes, nothing thought provoking.

    Exactly why are you retards happy that this Cokehead chimp is back? Do Conservatives like escalating budget deficits? I guess so. Do Conservatives like pointless wars initiated by lies? I guess so. You really must love outsourced jobs and a crappy economy. You are probably too stupid to realize how the country is now screwed. To hell with all of you.

In the interests of authenticity, the content of the transcript, which appeared as subtitles at the foot of the screen, has been left unedited. Praise be to Allah who created the creation for his worship and commanded them to be just and permitted the wronged one to retaliate against the oppressor in kind.

    Expatica ^ | - 8 OCTOBER 2004
    HANOI, Oct 7 (AFP) - French President Jacques Chirac warned Thursday of a "catastrophe" for global diversity if the United States' cultural hegemony goes unchallenged. Speaking at a French cultural centre in Hanoi ahead of Friday's opening of a summit of European and Asian leaders, Chirac said France was right to stand up for cultural and linguistic diversity. The outspoken French president warned that the world's different cultures could be "choked" by US values. This, he said, would lead to a "general world sub-culture" based around the English language, which would be "a real ecological catastrophe". Citing Hollywood's stranglehold over...

    I enjoy this forum, but lately I've noticed a troubling tendency for posters here to descend into horrible and immature name-calling. Such name-calling, and extremism without reason does nothing but harm our cause. It turns off casual lurkers and readers of this forum. It provides fodder for this forum to be demonized and non-respected elsewhere. Below I provide a few examples. I call on Freepers to stop using such terms voluntarily. If that doesn't work, I call on the moderators to warn, if not censor, posters who use such terms. I realize that Democratic Underground uses even more ridiculous terms...

    By you own admission, the Free Republic hates democrats, non-Christians, gays, the environment, strong women and pacificts to name a few. That's about 80% of your fellow Americans that you oppose. You claim to be defenders of the constitution and yet you support amendments allowing the federal government to tell you who you can marry and what religion you should follow. You claim to believe in free speech and in the next sentence say you will censor anyone that doesn't agree with you. And yet you claim to to be pro FREEDOM? I don't get it.
