Divorce and Social Science
Powerline, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 7/6/2014 8:17:25 AM

On Thursday USA Today reported on what has been the next shoe waiting to drop for a long time: the first gay divorces: BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The mood was festive as Judge Valeri Haughton spent the morning of June 26 presiding over marriage ceremonies for gay couples who rushed to the Monroe County courthouse here after a federal judge struck down Indiana’s ban on same-sex marriage. That afternoon, the judge took on a more somber task — and one likely in the cards for at least some of the couples who she had just married. Haughton granted the state’s first

Comments:
His point is that researchers will not be permitted to study same-sex divorces, just as they cannot study race, and just as one researcher was demonized for finding dysfunction in children of same-sex couples.

There is a hatred in the gay community for normal Americans and normal American life.

We all know the methods of the assault on normality by gays and their foolish misfit progressive allies. They first infiltrate a social institution while in the closet as simply enlightened progressives, so much better than the rest of us. They conspire to build their ranks either by greasing skids for cronies to find positions in the organization or by actually controlling HR departments and hiring practices, an easy thing to do, as HR departments are nearly all radical progressives.

Then, after building their numbers sufficiently, they come out of the closet and declare special protection status. By this point, it is over for the institution under attack. No normal person wants to be part of it any more - those who may remain are always on the edge of being accused of all sorts of bigotry (morality) or worse.

This has happened to many organization in the US. The author is right to say that reporting or studying these activities is off limits - though we all have observed them.

The performing arts were the first to fall, then the press, churches, local governments, schools, the Boy and Girl Scouts, and now, of course, the military. The ultimate objective seems to be the destruction of the family - source of normality - and gay marriage is just one front of the battle.

Just suggest that you are cautious about those who have access to your children and you will be attacked mercilessly.

I don´t know how much longer society will ignore this assault, but I sincerely hope we start to resist soon, while there is still something left to preserve.

In most folk´s view, a divorce isn´t necessary because a valid marriage never occurred. And that´s the stance the person being sued for support should take.

So, now it´s more complicated than dividing up the Bette Midler and Cher or K D Lang and Indigo Girls DVDs?

As a result of your militancy, you were happier before you were gay.

Countless business owners across America have lost bank accounts because of a Justice Department initiative called “Operation Choke Point.” According to a House report, the secretive effort pressures financial institutions to deny a variety of legal businesses access to the very banking system they need to survive, simply because the Obama administration finds the businesses objectionable. Targeted enterprises include payday lenders, pawn shops and gun sellers. Meet four business owners who experienced Choke Point’s adverse effects firsthand:

It’s a hell-hot Friday afternoon, and conservative anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and I are walking down a dusty footpath at Burning Man, the annual New Age festival held in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. (Snip) t’s a much different scene than you’d find at the offices of Americans for Tax Reform, the influential right-wing organization Norquist leads, but he seems charmed rather than frightened. “If you had 500 people get together and [they did] something like this, that would be impressive,” he says, surveying the blocks full of elaborately decorated theme camps. “But seventy thousand?” Further down the path, while Norquist

Irresponsible Choices
Creators Syndicate, by Thomas Sowell    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 9/2/2014 8:59:56 AM     Post Reply
The latest Gallup poll indicates that 14 percent of the people "moderately disapprove" of Barack Obama´s performance as president and 39 percent "strongly disapprove." Since Obama won two presidential elections, chances are that some of those who now "strongly disapprove" of what he has done voted to put him in office. (Snip) With many people now acting as if it is time for "a woman" to become president, apparently they have learned absolutely nothing from the disastrous results of the irresponsible self-indulgence of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of demographic characteristics, instead of individual qualifications.

FBI Radio: Public Service

Listen to the radio and you might run across a segment that sounds something like a news report. A newsy music introduction plays as woman’s officious-sounding voice begins narrating a story. In a stilted delivery that appears to mimic that of a news anchor, the woman states, “In a move demonstrating the FBI’s valuable role of protecting national security, Director James Comey creates a separate Intelligence Branch…” It turns out this isn’t a news report at all. And the “news anchor” is actually a public affairs specialist. You might call the radio spot a faux news report brought to you by

Child Labor Day

There is no more settled principle than the virtue of the laborer. And no greater self-congratulation than we have ended child labor. So when we celebrate Labor Day we congratulate ourselves on the wonderful things we have done to protect working people from exploitation and oppression, and we also congratulate ourselves that our children no longer have to go out to work. (Snip) First of all, let´s be clear about one thing. We moderns only have a problem with children working for pay. It is nothing for us to send our children off to government child-custodial facilities for a 12-year

More Swiss Banks Give Eric
Holder One-Finger Salute

More Swiss banks are dropping out of the U.S. banking program that the IRS supposedly uses to prevent American citizens from stashing cash overseas to avoid taxes. Known for 100 years as the original tax haven, free from the prying eyes of governments around the world, Swiss banks have provided banking services that guaranteed anonymity to arms dealers, Nazis, and law-abiding Americans alike. Offshore banks, especially Swiss banks, are not generally used to evade taxes however. The government already has enforcement mechanisms in place to prevent tax evasion by the use of offshore banks by American citizens. No smart rich person,

Recently, a few conservative intellectuals have raised serious questions about the College Board’s effort to develop a new curriculum for the Advanced Placement history courses. Stanley Kurtz, at National Review Online, writes that “this Framework will effectively force American high schools to teach U.S. history from a leftist perspective.” Naturally, the College Board argues that its intent is only to provide “balance,” to streamline the curriculum, and to enhance teacher flexibility. In other words, all benign matters that educators should welcome.

They DO have a strategy, but they prefer to appear indecisive. That’s because the strategy would likely provoke even greater criticism than the false confession of endless dithering. The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies.

We often read or hear from the media that a nation is “shocked” or “horrified” by the revelation of some crime or government scandal. It is almost never true. (Snip) Since Tuesday afternoon, however, Britain has felt real shock and horror over the report that 1,400 young women in the South Yorkshire town of Rotherham had been groomed, raped, prostituted, trafficked, and brutally abused in almost every possible way by a criminal gang for the last 16 years.

Education: For a parent, the headline couldn´t be more alarming: "Teacher of the Year accused of molesting student, charged with 5 felonies." It´s a story that, tragically, is all too common — and all too underreported. Why? We´ve all heard of the Catholic Church child abuse scandal that´s still regularly covered, 20 to 40 years after much of the abuse took place. It too was tragic, and acknowledged as such by the church, which has taken action to prevent its ever happening again. The same can´t be said of unionized public education — where child abuse appears to be rampant, often with

Obama’s ‘Iraqization’ of America
FrontPage, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 8/29/2014 7:02:48 AM     Post Reply
When it comes to Iraq, Obama lectures the Sunnis and the Shiites on getting along and forming a government that won’t exist for the sole benefit of a single group at the expense of the other. But in America he runs exactly that type of government. Iraqis are not stupid. They look at the news and they see Ferguson and Al Sharpton screaming at angry mobs and know that Obama is not practicing what he preaches to them. Obama may have forced out Maliki, but his own tribal politics are hard to distinguish from those of Maliki.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.
