    It seems like every week, there’s a new story of a female high school or even middle school teacher who has been arrested for engaging in relations with one of her students.The women are often young, attractive, and often (seemingly) happily married. It has been happening so frequently that it appears to be a reasonably solid trend, and yet there’s little widespread call to end it.Selwyn Duke of the New American, in his article, Female Teachers Having Affairs With Young Boys — Now a Weekly Occurrence, says that while there are many high-profile cases the media has covered recently, the...

    Washington (CNN)On Wednesday, the Republican governor of Missouri asked for a temporary restraining order against the Republican attorney general of Missouri, who is also the leading candidate to represent the GOP against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) in the fall. The governor, Eric Greitens, made the move to keep the AG, Josh Hawley, from pursuing an investigation into the possibility that he broke the law when he used a fundraising list from a non-profit to collect funds for his political campaigns.

    Teen Vogue Columnist Lauren Duca responded to news of Rev. Billy Grahams death by telling him to, Have fun in hell, bitch. Taking to Twitter after news broke that the world-renowned and beloved evangelist had died Wednesday at age 99, Duca mocked Grahams longevity and hurled her insult: The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time. Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch. After receiving backlash on Twitter for her hateful irreverence, Duca doubled-down on her comment, declaring that Respecting the dead only applies to people who werent evil pieces of sh*t while they were...

  • Why parents should never spank children

    The Conversation ^ | Oct 29, 2017 | T.O. Afifi, E. Romano
    The research clearly shows that spanking is related to an increased likelihood of many poor health, social and developmental outcomes. These poor outcomes include mental health problems, substance use, suicide attempts and physical health conditions along with developmental, behavioural, social and cognitive problems. Equally important, there are no research studies showing that spanking is beneficial for children. Those who say spanking is safe for a child if done in a specific way are, it would seem, simply expressing opinions. And these opinions are not supported by scientific evidence.

    The modern Wests freefall into the abyss of feelings, entertainment, mindlessness, lawlessness, and thoughtless immoral behavior was largely learned in the academic halls of the 1800s, with the lions share of such attitudes coming out of Germany that fostered an unwarranted amount of skepticism toward the historical truths of the Bible. In particular, the German Enlightenment disregarded the Jewish foundations of the Bible. They sought to separate biblical history from both Jews and Christians because they saw the Bible not only as too superstitious with too many miracles, but also and closely connected, as too limiting, exclusionary, and particularistic ....

    It turns out the "war on women" exists after all, and it's being carried out by women like Joy Behar and other pagan progressives like her. This week Behar's TV show, The View, provided proof that a male creep/perp need not be anywhere in the room for real life victims of sexual assault to be thrown under the bus. Sure, Bill Clinton is "a dog," admitted Behar, while being confronted with his past infidelity and its impact on Hillary Clinton's presidential hopes. But hey, according to Behar taxpayer-funded birth control and satisfying the blood lust to kill innocent babies (millions...
  • Joran van der Sloot to Begin Peru Murder Trial

    01/05/2012 5:09:20 PM PST · by ColdOne · 27 replies · 2+ views ^ | 1/5/12 | AP
    Prosecutors are seeking a 30-year prison sentence for Van der Sloot on murder and theft charges in a trial that will be held at Lima's Lurigancho prison. He is accused of murdering Flores with "ferocity and great cruelty," and prosecutors say he also stole 600 soles, about $220, from the victim. The handsome, garrulous Dutchman, a staple of true-crime TV shows for years after Holloway's disappearance, has in several interviews described himself as a pathological liar. He's been in custody after his arrest in neighboring Chile just days after Flores' death. Van der Sloot shares a cell with a Mexican...

    T o many, America’s industrial heartland may look like a place mired in the economic past—a place that, outcompeted by manufacturing countries around the world, has too little work to offer its residents. But things look very different to Karen Wright, the CEO of Ariel Corporation in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Wright’s biggest problem isn’t a lack of work; it’s a lack of skilled workers. “We have a very skilled workforce, but they are getting older,” says Wright, who employs 1,200 people at three Ohio factories. “I don’t know where we are going to find replacements.” That may sound odd, given...

    A mother who "deliberately and unjustifiably frustrated" a father's attempts to visit his child was appropriately stripped of child support and primary custody, an appellate panel in Albany has held. The Appellate Division, Third Department, unanimously affirmed a Schuyler County Family Court judge in a case where the custodial mother had repeatedly hindered her estranged husband's efforts to establish relations with his daughter, even though the father made no attempt to enforce his visitation rights for six years. Luke v. Luke, 510880, centers on a child born in 2001 to Melvin W. and Heidi L. Luke. The Lukes, who are...

    Our mainstream media have discovered a new issue: inequality in America. The gap between the wealthiest 1 percent and the rest of the nation is wide and growing wider. This, we are told, is intolerable. This is a deformation of American democracy that must be corrected through remedial government action. What action? The rich must pay their fair share. Though the top 1 percent pay 40 percent of federal income taxes and the bottom 50 percent have, in some years, paid nothing, the rich must be made to pay more. That's an appealing argument to many, but one that would...

    First, the context: Modern political science -- which readily understands imperialism, resistance, and clash of competing interests -- does not similarly understand “the wasting away of nations.” That, says David Goldman, author of How Civilizations Die: (and why Islam is dying too), is because political scientists tend to assume that people will follow their rational self-interest. In fact, they often don’t.From antiquity, he notes, a symptom of a civilization’s decline has been the destruction of children:Macedonian poet Poseidippus of Pella wrote: “Even a rich man always exposes a daughter.” A 200 BCE survey of seventy-nine families in Miletus, an ancient...

    25million empty bedrooms across the country at a time when many are struggling to bu Older people should be taxed out of their family homes to free up space for younger generations, says a report backed by Labour. It argues that 'empty nesters' in their 60s are taking up too much room and should be 'encouraged' by a new 'land tax' to downsize to smaller homes. The call comes from the Intergenerational Foundation, a left-leaning think-tank that aims to 'promote fairness between generations'. Labour MP Tessa Jowell sponsored the report's launch in a Commons hospitality room yesterday, saying the current...

Football, of course. "How 'bout them Devils! D'ya see that pick six in the third quarter? Amazing! Hey, Joe, sorry about your Dawgs! Maybe you'll get 'em next week, if they don't fire your coach first!" In a few minutes, many will wander into worship, the married ones joining their wives. As the first hymn begins, some of them will stand and keep silent guard, staring mutely...

Andrew was the child of a drug-abuser with undiagnosed behavioral and eating problems that led him to frequently overeat and vomit. Overton, a former licensed vocational nurse, gave Andrew some spicy, salty seasoning dissolved in water, after which he vomited and became cold. She waited until her husband came home,...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A Louisville woman is accused of leaving her four young children home alone. Evelyn Smith is charged with four counts of wanton endangerment. Metro police said the children are ages 1, 2, 4 and 5. An arrest warrant said the 1-year-old was playing with a fork and had a sharp pork chop bone in his mouth. Another child was eating cereal off the floor, police said, and the 5-year-old said she was the baby-sitter. Police also said they found suspected crack cocaine in a shoebox on top of the refrigerator. A not-guilty plea was entered for Smith...
