If anyone is going to try to use the victimization of at least ten boys at Penn State University to garner support for his anti-homosexuality agenda, it’s Peter LaBarbera, founder of the hate group Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.
After centuries of seeing the good that comes from protest and civil disobedience, I find it unfathomable that the authorities still feel behavior such as the video spraying of peaceful protesters is effective.
In a time of unprecedented economic quality and unemployment (see Occupy Movements), in which the top one percent control 42 percent of financial wealth while 15 percent of the country is on food stamps and unemployment is still hanging at 9.1 percent.
Herman Cain began to speak and not just in vague political speak; he started answering questions regarding important issues that a candidate for the highest office in the land should concern himself with and at least know a little bit about.
It has happened many times. I meet someone. The person finds out that I am Jewish. The person then starts carrying on about how much they love Israel and hate President Obama because he doesn’t support Israel.
The credit score (FICO) has gotten out of control. It was meant to assess risk when lending someone money. That’s it. It’s now morphed into assessing risk for renting apartments and getting a job.

Situated between Scotland and Iceland lies a small group of islands called the Faroe Islands. These islands belong to the nation of Denmark. But a dark shadow of shame shrouds the island. Since the 10th century, the young men of the islands participate in a yearly ritual to become an adult.

Sometimes I just don’t understand why there is always a financially struggling college kid, a low wage worker, or a middle class citizen that feel as though they have to go out of their way to defend tax breaks for the rich. At least once a month I find one person that wants to argue against their own interests and it continues to baffle me.
Michele Bachmann is still alive and apparently running for president, which means she’s obliged to say insane things. Whether she’s touting the benefits of waterboarding (listening to Bachmann speak apparently violates the Geneva Conventions as well) or pulling a Palin and lashing out at…
