3 women a day killed by
a partner in South Africa

Associated Press, by Michelle Faul

Original Article

Posted By:Hermoine, 3/11/2013 5:49:39 PM

JOHANNESBURG — Reeva Steenkamp, the model and law graduate shot and killed by Oscar Pistorius, was statistically just one of three women killed on Valentine´s Day by an intimate partner, according to a study on violence against women that damns South Africa as having "the highest rate ever reported in research anywhere in the world." Steenkamp´s killing came the day before she planned to wear black in a "Black Friday" protest against the country´s excruciatingly high number of rapes, spurred by the particularly brutal gang-rape and mutilation of a 17-year-old that made front-page news in February.

Is it my imagination...or hasn´t about every ´African´ country that booted ´white interlopers´ out - regressed to stone-age status?

Sorta´ like the effect their ´leadership´ had on Detroit, ain´t it?

Thirty-seven percent of men in a survey in Gauteng Province admitted they had raped a woman,

Sounds like a good place for Zerlina Maxwell to test her "teach men not to rape" idea. /s

Most all violence against women happens in UNMARRIED couples. They live together as if they were married, but it is often painfully different. Why do we continue to pretend that there is no difference?

Just like Chicago, Detroit, Watts, Harlem, E. St Louis...

Obama´s in the process of doing to this country that Mandela did to Africa.The $3 billion Pigford settlement was a joke and a scam.These people manufacture hatred towards white imperialistic Europeans as an excuse to steal what they build up.When the white European descendants move out the area goes into ruin.

I guess we stole parts of Mexico and so they deserve some compensation.What ticks me off is these women´s rights groups who are very selective about who they stand up for. They couldn´t care less about the brutality towards women overseas but they´ll fight tooth and nail to make sure a woman gets equal pay because they want the female vote in this country.

Africa could easily grow enough food to feed themselves but that´s not how a liberal racket works. They need poverty victims to stay in power. I imagine some blacks in Africa wouldn´t do farm work because it´s too much like slavery. That´s all fine and dandy but why kill white farmers willing to do the work. It´s because the left wants them to be a handout continent to buy votes in the UN agenda.

A lot of their tourism is based on foreigners coming in and killing wildlife,which I really hate.

Eleven days after Journey Ann Cowart celebrated her first birthday, she was dead. The Bartow County sheriff said Monday the baby was beaten to death, allegedly at the hands of her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. And it wasn’t the first time she had been abused, Sheriff Clark Millsap said. “A fractured skull, blunt force trauma to the stomach,” Millsap said, describing Journey’s injuries. “The child had healed ribs that had previously been broken. And she also had a femur that had cracked and had already healed.”

On December 18, 2012, the set of Fox & Friends was both festive and somber. Festive because it was the Christmas season. The three hosts, two men in dark suits flanking a woman in a blue dress, sat on a mustard-colored couch in front of a cheery seasonal backdrop: a lit-up tree, silver-painted twigs, mounds of tinsel, blue and red swatches of fabric, and, here and there, multicolored towers of blown glass with tapering points that made them look surprisingly like minarets. Somber because a terrible thing had happened just four days earlier, in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Baffling 400,000-Year-Old
Clue to Human Origins

Scientists have found the oldest DNA evidence yet of humans’ biological history. But instead of neatly clarifying human evolution, the finding is adding new mysteries. In a paper in the journal Nature, scientists reported Wednesday that they had retrieved ancient human DNA from a fossil dating back about 400,000 years, shattering the previous record of 100,000 years. The fossil, a thigh bone found in Spain, had previously seemed to many experts to belong to a forerunner of Neanderthals. But its DNA tells a very different story. It most closely resembles DNA from an enigmatic lineage of humans known as Denisovans. Until

SPRING CITY, Pa. — Frank Schaefer gets to keep calling himself a Methodist pastor — at least for the next 30 days. The United Methodist clergyman convicted of breaking church law for officiating at his son´s same-sex wedding was suspended late Tuesday, and ordered by a jury of his fellow pastors to surrender his credentials in a month if he can´t bring himself to adhere to the laws of the church´s Book of Discipline. Schaefer said he had no intention of changing his mind about the church´s teaching on homosexuality, declaring he would perform more gay marriages if asked.

Tuscaloosa, Ala. - Alabama´s football team is steaming toward Saturday´s showdown with rival Auburn and a possible third consecutive national championship. The team has lost only two games in the past three seasons. But here in Tuscaloosa, there is one small pocket of dissatisfaction—and it´s an important one. It is located inside the home shared by Terry Saban and her husband of 42 years, Nick, the team´s head coach. The first couple of Alabama football may be standing on top of the world, but it isn't necessarily thrilled by the view. "You come to a crossroads and the expectations get so great,

STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford squashed Oregon´s national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Florida State might want to send the Cardinal a thank you card. Tyler Gaffney ran for 157 yards, and No. 5 Stanford hammered No. 3 Oregon for three quarters before holding off a furious rally by the fast-paced Ducks for a 26-20 victory Thursday night. The Cardinal made it two in a row against the Ducks, who haven´t lost to any other team in the past two seasons.

At the Country Music Association awards in Nashville, effectively the Grammys for country music, superstar hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood performed a song skit mocking Obamacare, the Democrats´ public health initiative that has proved hugely unpopular amongst conservatives. Paisley, feigning a strained back, was attended to by Underwood who suggested he try Obamacare: "I started signing up last Thursday and I´m almost done!" They then launched into Obamacare By Morning, a spoof of George Straight´s country classic Amarillo by Morning, attacking the initiative´s slow service and inefficiency.

At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved.

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Peyton Manning is 37 years old. He has had four neck surgeries. He has admitted he doesn´t have the arm he used to. But despite all that, it took him until Sunday night to look truly helpless. Like he was staring at something even he, the most prepared quarterback in NFL history, couldn´t navigate. It seemed like the quarterback who had always thought of everything had nothing left. The Seattle Seahawks wrecked Manning and his historically spectacular offense to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8, in one of the biggest blowouts in the history of the league´s biggest game.

In Frank Rich´s New York Magazine article, ´Stop Beating a Dead Fox´ he calls Fox News a politically conservative ´retirement community´ that´s losing young viewers at a faster rate than it´s competitors. The average viewers at MSNBC and CNN are 60, and the average is 62-64 for the broadcast networks. Not only are Fox News viewers old, they´re almost all white.
