    In a recent Iowa speech, Obama said, “I want women to control their own health choices, just like I want my daughters to have the same economic opportunities as my sons.” My sons! Both the video of the speech and the transcript distributed by the White House unequivocally documented his “mistake.” And he was using a teleprompter but I understand he uses the teleprompter when he tells Michelle “Good morning.” He made the same “mistake” in a New York speech a few days later! Does he not know that he has two daughters? But then who knows, maybe he does...

    President Obama’s campaign speech defending his healthcare policy on the grounds that “my daughters should have the same economic opportunities as my sons” has puzzled observers. Only two daughters (Malia and Sasha) have been explicitly acknowledged by the President. Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that while “it is obvious that the President and First Lady have only the two daughters currently living with them in the White House, critics shouldn’t be jumping to the conclusion that he misspoke. Statistics show that the average urban Black male fathers 3.2 children out-of-wedlock. Earlier in his life, the President was a member of...

    Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's youngest son has been killed by Nato strikes in Libya, according to reports. Rebel forces have said the Libyan leader's son Khamis was among more than 30 people dead following an air strike on an operation centre in the western town of Zlitan. Spokesman for revolutionary militia groups Mohammed Zawawi told AFP that spies operating among Gaddafi's ranks had confirmed the death. "Overnight there was an aircraft attack by Nato on the Gaddafi operations room in Zlitan and there are around 32 Gaddafi troops killed - one of them is Khamis," he said. It is the second...

    “Adopted as Sons” (Ephesians 1:3-14)It is a terrible thing to be rootless, family-less, fatherless, not having a father. I can tell you from personal experience. My father died when I was one year old, and I can tell you that growing up without a father was no fun. All the other kids had dads; why didn’t I? There was this big gap in my life. This state of fatherlessness always weighed on my mind, and I’m pretty sure it held me back in life. On the other hand, one of the greatest joys I’ve had in life is being a...

Whether Vander Woude was volunteering at church, coaching basketball or working on his farm, Joseph was often right there with him, pitching in with a smile, friends and neighbors said yesterday. When Joseph, 20, who has Down syndrome, fell into a septic tank Monday in his back yard, Vander Woude jumped in after him. He saved him. And he died where he spent so much time living: at his son's side.

Well-off women produce more sons Researchers studied 50 million people and found that mothers in 'good condition’ - those who were married, better educated and younger - bore more sons than mothers in 'poor condition’. The reason, simply put, is that women are tougher than men so according to evolutionary theory women living in poorer communities are predisposed to...

Not much is required except the right anatomical equipment and opportunity. The father need not love the mother. The father does not need a course in parenting, nor does he need to even desire to be a parent. The father does not always even know of his progeny. Nevertheless, each child born into this world has two parents, and one of them is, by definition, the father. For many men, that is where their input begins and ends. Children need fathers....

Today, though, the gender gap — that men lean right and women lean left — has become a political truism, and a series of new studies suggests that gender plays an even bigger role in politics than many believed. Having a son tends to make parents more conservative, it appears, while a daughter makes them more liberal. The parental has become the political. snip... In Germany, two-thirds of people who...

    Bearing sons 'can shorten mother's life' By Roger Highfield, Science Editor (Filed: 02/11/2005) Giving birth to and raising several sons could be bad for the long-term health of mothers but good for fathers, according to a study published today. Scientists suspect that having large families shortens a parent's lifespan, because the effects of reproduction and childcare can take their toll on health. However, in a society without good health care, sons could be especially costly for the mother for several reasons. They are, on average, born heavier and place more physical stresses on the body. They also raise levels of...

Indeed, watching people be humiliated is big business on American TV. Shows such as American Idol feature judges like Simon Cowell –...

    The Late and Unlamented Idi Amin, former self-styled Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes (sic) of the Sea, is dead. Anyone who received that news without a touch of sadness is morally deficient. Not sadness over Amin's death, but that he died peacefully in his bed in Saudi Arabia. Estimates of the numbers of Ugandans killed by Amin during his eight-year reign of terror in the '70s range from 300,000 to 500,000. I feel the same way about anyone who did not rejoice at the news that Uday and Qusai Hussein were on the receiving end...

    Signs celebrating deaths of Saddam's sons criticized By Associated Press July 30, 2003 CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - State-hired paving contractors say they were being patriotic when they posted the words "Odai and Qusai dead - way to go 101st" on two electronic message boards. But some found the roadside messages about the deaths of Saddam Hussein's sons offensive rather than inspiring. "Our soldiers are not members of a sports team to be rooted for," Roberta Halgrim of Adams told The Leaf-Chronicle newspaper. "They are not gladiators. They are our protectors, and they are willing to pay the ultimate price for peace,...

    U.S. soldiers found a stash of cash and a briefcase of goodies in the mansion where Odai and Qusai Hussein were killed last week. The brothers had $100 million in U.S. dollars and Iraqi dinars, according to a report published Sunday. Based on the contents of a briefcase belonging to Odai, Saddam Hussein's elder son seemed to be preparing more for a night out than a fight. It contained pain-killers, cologne, Viagra, unopened packages of men's underwear, dress shirts, a silk tie and a condom, Newsweek reported. They also had two women's purses. Sunday, U.S. forces focused their hunt for...

    The Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq says a decision on the burial of the sons of deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, Uday and Qusay, will be announced within the next 24 hours. The Coalition Provisional Authority says it will announce the final steps involved in burying Saddam Hussein's sons Monday. U.S. troops killed the two Tuesday in a firefight in the northern city of Mosul. A coalition spokesman, who asked not to be named, said it had to carry out a number of procedures before the bodies could be buried. Traditionally, Middle Eastern burial practices require that interment take place...

    The consequences of death of Saddam Hussein's sons give rise to several questions. If the questions remain unanswered, the death of the two important figures in Iraq looks unbelievable. It is not ruled out that the liquidation of the brothers was in fact a special operation launched to cover them up. The question number one: what did the men do in one of the main Kurd cities while it is known that their father had poisoned thousands of Kurds? We may suppose they just picked out an unusual way of committing a suicide there. On the contrary, they merely decided...

    Citizens of the free world justifiably hanker after reliable leadership, at a time when democratic decency is under unrelenting fire from the forces of fanaticism, intolerance, and Islamic terrorism. In a single-superpower world, the American president must meet high expectations. He did the right thing in the aftermath of September 11 and won his own nation's broad support. But of late that support has been waning. Strong leadership must be proven over and over. The successful targeted killing of Saddam's cruel sons has given George W. Bush a much-needed shot in the arm at a time of increasing pressure and...

    No tears shed for Saddam's sons in the Gulf July 23 2003 at 03:57PM By Samia Nakhoul Dubai - No tears are being shed for Saddam Hussein's two slain sons but many analysts in the Gulf warned the United States on Wednesday against complacency after the surprise breakthrough. Politicians, analysts and ordinary people across the region said Washington still had a long list of political woes to address in Iraq to restore stability before claiming victory. "Americans should not consider this as a big victory. They should not bask in their glory. They should look at it as another step...

    Woman Allegedly Throws Her Twin Infant Sons Into Mississippi River; One Child Still Missing The Associated Press ST. PAUL, Minn. July 6 — A woman allegedly threw her twin infant sons off a bridge into the Mississippi River, then jumped in herself, screaming incoherently as she fell 75 feet to the water, police said.

A man rescued one of the 11-month-old boys, then pulled the mother to safety with the help of others. By then, the second boy had disappeared,...

    What Do Daddies DO? June 7, 2003 by Isaiah Flair Now playing: "Daddy Day Care"!I'm always amazed by the "Three Men and a Baby" motif of popular entertainment, which declares that men who can build a computer from scratch are somehow supposed to be befuddled by the changing of a diaper or warming of a bottle. It's silly, and to such an extreme extent that one wonders what the motivation for such ridiculous portrayals are.Physical tasks involved in childraising are fairly simplistic. Presuming one signs on to bottle-feeding as acceptable, as I and millions of others do, the day-to-day...
