Iran passes a law allowing men to marry
their 13-year-old adopted daughters
just as the country´s new president
touts himself as a moderate

Daily Mail [UK], by Meghan Keneally

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/3/2013 3:56:06 AM

A new law in Iran that allows men to marry their adopted daughters at the age of 13 has caused major concern that the country´s new president is not as progressive as originally thought. President Hassan Rouhani has been hailed as a new moderate voice in the controversial Middle Eastern government but the approval of the new law shows that the extreme beliefs in the intolerant country have not evaporated. The law was approved by the Iranian members of parliament and maintains that girls can marry with the permission of their father at the age of 13 and young boys

Comments:
The law says ". . . girls can marry with the permission of their father. . . ." What that means is girls can be forced to marry by their father.

There´s really a race to the bottom between big islam and the bigleft on who are the sickest human beings.Anybody that thinks Obama would be offended by this,needs a very strong meds regimin.Muslims pretend to be all sacrosanct about their dubious religion,when it´s really a cover for them being a bunch of closet pervs.There´s a movement in this country to lmup pedophilia in with sexual orientation perversions they claim people are born with.The left claims alcoholism is a form of congenital disease that people have no control over.

Teachers in this countr yare always getting a slap on the wrist for sexual assaults on underage kids.There was an article here a few weeks ago where some doofus wondered what´s wround with a teacher and student having sex.

Let´s take the liberal view:

Who are we to pass judgement on who should marry? How do we know what the feelings are between the parties? If they love each other what´s the big deal? After all, many men are born with sexual desire for prepubescent girls. How can nature be wrong? Studies have shown relationships between adults and early teen children are not damaging to the mental state of the teen! We shouldn´t be ashamed of our children´s bodies. All this concern is due to the brainwashing of our culture during the Victorian period of our history. And these damn Christians intend on controlling our lives.

It worked for homosexuals didn´t it?

Allowing men to marry their 13 year old adopted daughters really appears to be a rather moderate law in a society where stoning females to death is accepted.

They should be allowed to marry them, since they´ve likely been having sex with them for years by the time they´re thirteen. Women are nothing but property in Islam.

Ex-TSA agent confirms your worst
fears about airport security
Daily Mail [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 1/31/2014 2:05:01 PM     Post Reply
A former TSA officer has confirmed many of the worst suspicions about airport security screeners: they stop passengers for having an attitude, they confiscate snow globes from children and nail clippers from pilots, they profile passengers based on their nationality. And yes, they do see travelers naked in the X-ray photos. [Snip] ‘I confiscated jars of homemade apple butter on the pretense that they could pose threats to national security. I was even required to confiscate nail clippers from airline pilots—the implied logic being that pilots could use the nail clippers to hijack the very planes they were flying,’ he wrote.

Labour supporters admit it:

Ponder the graph above. Sixty-nine percent of Labour supporters would want a top rate tax of 50 percent even if it brought in no money. I’m sure they’d dispute the premise. I’m sure they’d insist that it did bring money in. And, on one level, they’d believe it; it’s human nature to start with the result we want and then rationalise it to ourselves with what look like hard data. [Snip] No, this is a blog about the mind-set of people who see taxation, not as an unpleasant necessity, but as a way to punish others.

Scale of NHS financial crisis
revealed amid looming staff cuts

NHS hospitals face having to cut staff and services amid the worst financial outlook for almost a decade - with almost half forecasting they will end the current financial year in debt, records show. Board reports covering all 145 hospital trusts in England disclose that 44 percent expect to end the year in deficit--with a combined “black hole” of more than £330 million between them. Senior NHS officials said organisations are struggling to cope with pressures on Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments, with hospitals recording their highest ever levels of emergency admissions in the run-up to Christmas. Many organisations are

Is the American president still

It’s a commonplace of journalism to say that the President of the USA is “the most powerful man in the world”. Thus it was, before Obama’s State of the Union speech this week: pundits dutifully trotted out the phrase "the most powerful man on earth" as the dashingly besuited Mr Obama strode to his Washington lectern. [Snip] All this is totally true. America is a great and marvelous nation, and it is not going anywhere. But here’s a game you can play. Simply type, into your nearest search engine, variants of the phrase “China overtakes”. Then see what pops up.

A brain surgeon walked six miles through a snowstorm in Alabama on Tuesday to perform life-saving surgery. Dr Zenko Hrynkiw was at Brookwood Medical Center in Tuesday morning when he was needed for emergency brain surgery miles away at Trinity Medical Center. The problem was the sudden snowstorm had locked down traffic, and the neurosurgeon didn´t get farther than a few blocks by vehicle. ´The cell service was bad so we were fading in and out,´ said Steve Davis, charge nurse in the neuro intensive care unit at Trinity. ´At one point, I heard him say, "I´m walking."´ Davis had alerted authorities, and they

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal today apologized for the state´s catastrophic failure to respond to a snow storm which left thousands of people stranded in cars and children forced to sleep at their schools. Deal has ordered an internal review of authorities´ slow and muddled reaction after just two inches of snowfall on Tuesday left the Atlanta area of Georgia in utter chaos. After several days of blaming other officials, weather forecasters, truck drivers and even ´Mother Nature´, Deal admitted on Thursday: ´I’m not going to look for a scapegoat. I am the governor.

Migrants would be forced to pay a £2,000 bond to enter Britain to cover the cost of them claiming benefits and using services, Nick Clegg´s favourite think tank said today. The National Insurance Advance would be paid by anyone from outside the EU and would only be refunded once they have paid enough tax or left the country without becoming a drain on the welfare state. [Snip] The report says the bond would ‘demonstrate that migrants are coming to the UK to work, not claim’. It follows concern that immigrants are accessing services and the benefits system without paying in

The snow and sleet have stopped falling and traffic is slowly moving again but a storm is now brewing over who exactly is at fault for the South´s winter weather fiasco. Weatherman Al Roker and the National Weather Service hit back at politicians in the South who have pointed the finger at inaccurate forecasts as the reason why authorities were so ill-prepared for snowfall and icy conditions which led to chaos on the roads.

President Barack Obama has become the ´Typhoid Mary´ of congressional politics, a Republican political operative told MailOnline on Wednesday, with Democratic senators terrified to be seen with him as they fight to keep their jobs in November. Obama delivered a fiery State of the Union speech Tuesday night that was more about style than substance, drawing jeers for avoiding mention of the scandals that have plagued his administration since his last speech to a joint session of Congress. The president raised eyebrows and Republicans´ hackles before the address by threatening to go around Congress to implement his agenda, but proceeded

Hundreds of career Justice Department lawyers have broken into open revolt against Attorney General Holder over his support of legislation that would drastically cut back on mandatory minimum sentences for drug pushers. The legislation Holder supports, known as the Durbin-Lee bill, would overturn the current mandatory minimum sentences not only for marijuana violations but for all drug offenses, including major and repeat trafficking in heroin, meth, PCP and other extremely dangerous, and often lethal, drugs. This was too much for hundreds of federal prosecutors. Today, Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, read aloud from a letter the

Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

Someone you probably are not familiar with has filed a suit you probably have not heard about concerning a four-word phrase you should know about.

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen.

Remember how liberals pounced on Chick-Fil-A’s owner/president for saying more or less what Barack Obama said in his 2008 campaign for president? That marriage was between a man and a woman? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block the chain from coming to Beantown.

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town
