Where are the fathers?
Israel Hayom, by Ruthie Blum

Original Article

Posted By:JumboHC, 12/18/2012 11:14:30 AM

It was inevitable that the mourning of Friday’s massacre in Connecticut would be accompanied by a discussion of the ills of American society. It was to be expected, as well, that the horror of the 27 people shot dead — 20 young children, six adults, and the murderer’s own mother — would lead to renewed calls for stricter gun-control legislation. Other topics examined since the shocking mass slaughter at an elementary school in a crime-free neighborhood

We are all outraged and horrified by what happened in Connecticut. But are we prepared to accept the truth? The author points out what too many are afraid or unwilling to accept.

The author should know that Fathers are just sperm donors and after that Women don´t need ´em. Or have the Women changed their minds again?

My only point of criticism would be her reference to Adam Lanza as a "homeschooled social misfit", as though one preceded from the other. He wasn´t homeschooled until late in high school and seemed to always be a social misfit.

But that´s probably just this homeschool Mama´s sensitivity to the "socialization" issue talking.

This is 2012. We don´t need no stinking fathers.
By the way, it seems to me that most left wing loons are raised in single parent families.

In those parts of the world where ammunition is sparse and dear, most killing is still accomplished with a machete.

I´d rather be shot.

It´s a violent world.

We are only just barely out of the caves and jungles.

Nothing has changed.

There are a lot of recent developments that we can point to as potential causes:

* two income households/latch-key kids
* cultural nihilism
* cultural moral relativity
* Socialist policies that take responsibility from the individual and make them dependent (and demanding) on the state
* the ACLU´s push to make it impossible to commit a family member with violent tendencies
* Hollywood´s push to portray any person committed to a mental institution as a victim
* Divorce/single parent homes
* realistic violence in the entertainment industry

They want to talk only about guns because they certainly don´t want to talk about any other factors that might make them uncomfortable about their own choices.

Sorry for the second post, but I really wanted to add another one:

* Was he raised going to church? (if he had been, you know that´d be relevant to the Democrats, so I think it´s relevant if he was)
* If he was an atheist, was he the "live and let live" type or the kind who is full of hate.
* Was he registered to vote? Which party?

I noticed that they started taking out after the mom for being a "survivalist" and then they backed off. I wonder if she was registered Dem. I feel like her registration would be big news if she were a Republican.

She lost me at "home schooled social misfit." Do you always point out when someone is a public school social misfit?

Statistically, these events are not happening more frequently, by the way.

I don´t understand the criticisms here. The author had a very good point--what kind of man leaves his ticking time bomb of a son with a gun-hoarding crazy mom? It would appear that he wiped the dust off his sandals and started up with his new family.

You can highlight other issues--media, video games, mental issues. ACLU, etc,...but the author´s point is still valid.

As a father of 5, and a man raised by a single mom and two older sisters, this author NAILS it! Despite all of the psycho-babble out there, happy-disciplined-achieving children come from homes where the father has a strong loving presence and influence. Those are the fruits!

If I´m a caring father and my child is mentally unstable, I´m going to be involved and take the lead in ensuring he/she is loved and has the help they need. A responsible father doesn´t walk out on his kid, not have contact with them for a few years and then wonder how and why the child can go on a shooting rampage. The father´s role is essential in the life of his children. That´s why God created marriage and family the way that He did!

"...what kind of man leaves his ticking time bomb of a son with a gun-hoarding crazy mom?"

The kind of man that has been ground up and spit out by the US divorce industry, relieved of his wealth and primary access to his kids [other than the child support.]

Traditional fathers have been reduced to mere money/sperm donors by our RadFem "values."

Rescuing Compromise
National Affairs, by Jonathan Rauch    Original Article
Posted By: JumboHC- 9/29/2013 10:37:58 AM     Post Reply
A funny thing happened on the way to legislative gridlock and fiscal meltdown in the past few years. In paralyzed, polarized Washington, where Democrats refuse to reduce spending without revenue increases that Republicans peremptorily reject, Democrats have accepted spending cuts, Republicans have accepted tax increases, and deficits have come down. It is true that all of that happened in an ugly, piecemeal fashion, with the two parties lurching from one self-created crisis to another. At one stage, Republicans seemed willing to default on the national debt rather than compromise; at another, an automatic "sequestration" cut spending in what everyone agreed was

In case anyone hadn’t spotted it by now, culture is the vital element in the success or failure of everything: from our sports teams, to our businesses, to our country as a whole. A bad culture is blamed for our failures, but is frequently overlooked as part of success. Yesterday saw it come to the fore again – in the form of Bob Diamond exposing the negatives of banking culture at the Treasury Select Committee, and across the city, David Cameron enthusing us at the launch of another tech start-up initiative ...

A Fantasy Election, an Imaginary Man

Even before his inauguration, Barack Obama was an imaginary man, the creation of his admirers. Think back to the 2008 Time magazine cover depicting him as FDR, the Newsweek cover of the same year on which he was shown casting Lincoln’s shadow, or the $1.4 million Nobel Peace Prize awarded to him “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”—this in 2009, less than a year after he had taken office. It was not that Obama had done nothing to deserve these outsized comparisons and honors—it was not just that he had done nothing

Sanofi cuts fewer French jobs than
planned after government pressure

French drugmaker Sanofi SA scaled back planned layoffs under pressure from the French government, which has been struggling to contain a burgeoning unemployment rate. Sanofi, France's No. 2 company by market value after Total, said it could shed around 900 jobs in France in the next three years, fewer than the 2,500 predicted in July by trade unions, as part of the company's planned reshuffle of its research operations. The French government, which had strongly criticized Sanofi's cutback plans amid rising unemployment (snip), said it had made Sanofi Chief Executive Christopher Viehbacher listen to reason.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
