Stephen A. Smith Is Sorry You Thought
He Said Women Provoke Domestic Abuse

Atlantic Magazine, by David Sims

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/26/2014 4:50:24 AM

Tensions have been running high in the sports journalism world in the wake of the NFL´s toothless two-game ban of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice following his arrest for domestic violence in the off-season. In a debate on ESPN´s First Take with Skip Bayless this morning, Stephen A. Smith took his thoughts on the matter in a curious direction. (Emphasis ours) But what I´ve tried to employ the female members of my family, some of who you all met and talked to and what have you, is that again, and this what, I´ve done this all my life, let's make sure we don't do anything to provoke wrong actions, because if I come,

Don´t say "Misspoke" or we didn´t understand you.

Sean Connery agrees. He said "women often want the last word, but they are not happy with the last word and won´t let it alone, and want to get into a provocative situation." You know, common sense, man talk. But we can´t have that... No.

I´m female and I agree with Steven. The last thing my son said to me as he left the state was "Mom, if I stay here I´m going to hurt her." He lost his son over it because she wouldn´t even allow his dad to talk to him. He got a divorce and has been in a loving relationship for many years now and has two stepdaughters who adore him. Her-every man she has been involved with has beaten her up. What does that tell you?

Political correctness is not a campaign against speaking falsehoods.

It is a passive-aggressive (ok...female) tactic of exerting dominance while disallowing any response.

Some men perceive this as confrontational and respond violently.

´Twas ever thus.

Every possible mixture and mutation of this can be found but some women still want to ´act tough´ while failing to have mastered sufficient expertise in the martial arts to back up their own play.

I propose "Women´s Rights" for everyone.

I don´t hit women and never have but I do know that things will not go well for anyone who taunts those who are bigger and stronger and more testosterone driven than they are.

Male or female.

Women DO often times provoke domestic abuse. Most times it´s because they expect more from their husbands/partners than they can deliver.

Why is it about who is bigger and who taunts and who provokes? Why isn´t it about self-control? I am confident there are many females who would sometimes dearly love to physically attack the man who is angering them. But, most of us control ourselves. Why should males get a bye?

My sister and I, as teens, were arguing. She slugged me and put me on the floor. I thereupon hit her once, hard on the shoulder. She never hit me again.

An aggressor should not expect the victim to show restraint just ´cause the aggressor is female. Abuse is one thing, self defense is another.

Let’s reject the veiled isolationism
of Obama and Clinton
Washington Post, by Marco Rubio    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/13/2014 5:49:18 AM     Post Reply
President Obama’s call on Wednesday for the United States to lead an international military campaign in the Middle East has the potential to begin a departure from the isolationism that he and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton have advocated during their years in office. There is a risk, however, that the president’s focus on a counterterrorism campaign akin to those waged in Yemen and Somalia, and his reliance on regional partners to deal with the challenge posed by the Islamic State, could lead to the continuation of what has been the most disengaged presidential foreign policy in modern American history.

How did a man who made it into the elite SEALs and lived lavishly while running his own money-lending firm end up homeless near an offramp? It may have been the $1 million he stole. Navy SEALs divide their own into two groups. As they see it, there are the good mugs you can count on, and then there are the 10 percenters, the minority who slip through the screening process and bring disgrace on everyone else. Jason Mullaney might have started off in the first category, but after conning 11 fellow SEALs out of more than $1 million, he’s decidedly in the second. When police caught up with Mullaney in 2012, he’d run through the

When you are dealing with an administration whose officials look you in the eye and tell you the Muslim Brotherhood is a “largely secular” organization, it’s tempting to laugh off the idiocy spouted by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry about how the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. We should resist the temptation, though, because there is a dangerous purpose behind the laughable assertion. Obviously, Bing West and Daniel Pipes are correct that the terrorist group is entirely Islamic. As I’ve been arguing here more times and for more years than I care to remember, what

How Awful Will It Be?

In bad midterm-election years, members of a president´s party often find the political climate challenging. In some ways, it is like a swimmer encountering riptides or facing strong undertows. The degree of the danger varies from location to location, and in many cases, weak swimmers struggle in this environment; occasionally, even an Olympic-level swimmer perishes. In 2010—President Obama´s first midterm election—Democratic congressional candidates struggled mightily. The party suffered a net loss of six Senate seats and 63 seats in the House. That was the worst loss for either party in any election since 1948, and the largest loss in a

The Awful Reign of the Red Delicious

At the supermarket near his home in central Virginia, Tom Burford likes to loiter by the display of Red Delicious. He waits until he spots a store manager. Then he picks up one of the glossy apples and, with a flourish, scrapes his fingernail into the wax: T-O-M. “We can’t sell that now,” the manager protests. To which Burford replies, in his soft Piedmont drawl: “That’s my point.” Burford, who is 79 years old, is disinclined to apple destruction. His ancestors scattered apple seeds in the Blue Ridge foothills as far back as 1713, and he grew up with more than 100 types

Black men. Fellas. Brothers. Stop complaining about Ray Rice’s (much deserved and yet woefully insufficient) punishment. Right now. When we are beaten, slain and otherwise persecuted, our sisters, our mothers, and our women stand for us with nearly unilateral, unwavering support. They march for us. They cry out our names and demand justice. They support us in our moments of quiet fear when we shed the bitter tears of self-doubt and fatigue. Why aren’t we doing the same? Stephen A. Smith wasn’t alone in blaming black women for the violence against them. Too many black men are making shameful attempts to explain away the

With all of the other news ricocheting around the media and social networks, this may seem like a sleeper of a story, but it’s a bigger deal than one might think — literally as well as figuratively. Last night, House Republicans unveiled their proposed continuing resolution that will fund government well past the midterm elections, and it won’t make conservatives like Rep. Jeb Hensarling too happy. The proposal calls for a simple extension of current funding, plus some extra cash to deal with the Ebola outbreak in Africa and more flexibility on the use of cash for border security. Otherwise,

Obama´s Politicking Is

In the latest round of polls, President Obama´s approval ratings are lowest on the two issues that once were strengths—foreign policy and immigration. In this week´s ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 31 percent of Americans approved of his handling of immigration, an issue that he recently hoped to wield as a political weapon against the Republican Party. And the same survey showed his approval on international affairs at just 38 percent—the lowest point of his presidency and an 8-point drop from late July—even as he catered to the creeping isolationist sentiment in the country. To the White House, these numbers must

Martha Coakley’s Small Margin of
Victory Isn’t Inspiring Confidence
Boston Globe, by Eric Levenson    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/10/2014 12:08:27 PM     Post Reply
Martha Coakley may have won the Massachusetts’ Democratic governor primary, but her slim six-point margin of victory isn’t doing much to assuage Democrats worried about another 2010. Coakley took 42 percent of the vote to Steve Grossman’s 36 percent and Don Berwick’s 21 percent on Tuesday’s election. Coakley’s six-point margin is a rather uncomfortable primary win, particularly given that Coakley had a 20-point lead in The Boston Globe poll as recently as two weeks ago. The margin is bringing up memories of her failed 2010 Senate race, when Coakley lost to Scott Brown in a race to replace the longtime seat of

The first question most callers ask, says Katie Ray-Jones, president of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, isn’t “How do I leave him?” The first question is typically, “How do I get him to stop hitting me?” It is not unusual for domestic violence victims such as Janay Palmer to stand by their man, Ray-Jones said. Palmer posted an angry and pained Instagram response defending husband Ray Rice on Tuesday, a day after TMZ posted a new video that shows the disgraced NFL star punch her in the face during an argument in an Atlantic City casino elevator last February.

It’s proof that not everything is melancholy or alarming this week: Three cheers for the National Park Service, which managed to assemble 6,609 appropriately clad children into a “living” American flag at Fort McHenry National Monument in Baltimore to celebrate the 200th anniversary of “The Star Spangled Banner.” The herculean 90-minute task was completed at high noon Tuesday. The flag formation spanned 50,384 square feet — that’s 188 feet by 268 feet — entirely made up of enthusiastic local students from the fourth to eighth grades, who donned red, white or blue coverups and meandered their way into the largest living

Democratic candidate for Wisconsin governor Mary Burke took a two-year break from her career for a “snowboarding sabbatical” and a decade later expressed doubts that she ever wanted to have a full-time job again. Burke’s career has come under scrutiny after it was revealed that her résumé includes a two-year gap between positions at Trek Bicycle Corporation, which was founded by her father. After working in Europe for Trek overseeing operations in multiple countries, Burke decided she “needed some time off,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal. Explanations of what Burke was actually doing from July 1993 to September 1995 vary, largely

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry.

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

Saying everything possible had been done to bring the journalist home, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters officials worked very closely with Foley´s family and with his employer, GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
