The Pro-Life FUCKNUTS Have Struck Again!!

Is that even a word? Fucknuts? Well if it isn't, I just coined the term. The pro-life fucknuts have struck again. This time, they've murdered abortion provider George Tiller. In a fucking church!! And they claim to be CHRISTIANS!! They claim to be religious!! IN A FUCKING CHURCH!!

Doctor who performed abortions shot to death

(CNN) -- Dr. George Tiller, whose Kansas women's clinic was the epicenter of the state's battles over abortion for nearly two decades, was shot and killed at his church Sunday morning, his family said.

Tiller, 67, was one of the few U.S. physicians who still performed late-term abortions. He survived a 1993 shooting outside his Wichita clinic.

He was fatally shot shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday at Reformation Lutheran Church, Wichita police said.

Sunday afternoon, authorities took a man into custody near Kansas City after stopping a car that matched a description of the killer's getaway vehicle, according to sheriff's deputies in Johnson County, Kansas. No charges had been filed.

Wichita police said they were searching for a powder-blue Ford Taurus in connection with the killing. Witnesses provided a license number of the car the killer used to speed away from the church, police spokesman Gordon Bassham said.

Tiller "dedicated his life to providing women with high-quality heath care despite frequent threats and violence," his family said in a written statement.

"We ask that he be remembered as a good husband, father and grandfather and a dedicated servant on behalf of the rights of women everywhere," the family said.

Abortion is one of the hottest buttons in U.S. politics, with opponents arguing the practice is tantamount to the murder of an unborn child. Abortion rights supporters argue the decision to terminate a pregnancy is best left to the woman.

The anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, which has led numerous demonstrations at Tiller's clinic, condemned the shooting as a "cowardly act."

"Operation Rescue has worked for years through peaceful, legal means, and through the proper channels to see him brought to justice," the group said in a statement. It offered its prayers for Tiller's family, "that they will find comfort and healing that can only be found in Jesus Christ."

In March, Tiller was acquitted of 19 counts of performing procedures unlawfully at his clinic. In 2008, a probe initiated by abortion opponents who petitioned state authorities to convene a grand jury ended without charges.

On its Web site, Operation Rescue refers to Tiller as a "monster" who has "been able to get away with murder." And Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry, who is no longer affiliated with the group, called Tiller "a mass murderer."

"We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God," Terry said in a written statement. "I am more concerned that the Obama administration will use Tiller's killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder, and we still must call abortion by its proper name."

The 1993 attack on Tiller left him wounded through both arms. An ardent foe of abortion, Shelley Shannon, was convicted of attempted murder and is serving a 20-year sentence in federal prison for the shooting.

If Tiller was slain because of his work, he would be the fourth U.S. physician killed by abortion opponents since 1993. In addition, a nurse at a Birmingham, Alabama, clinic was maimed and an off-duty police officer was killed in a 1998 bombing by Eric Rudolph, who included abortion among his list of anti-government grievances.

Rudolph admitted to that attack and three other bombings -- including the 1996 attack on the Olympic games in Atlanta, Georgia -- and is serving life in prison.

If he was murdered because of his work? Give me a fucking break. If????? What the fuck else do you think he was murdered for?

What happened today is called TERRORISM. His terrorist/murderer should be tortured to find out who he was working with or for.

Operation Rescue can go to hell!! Like they fucking care that George Tiller was murdered. I'm sure that they're partying today!! They had a "Tiller Watch" on their website, and now that he's been murdered it has disappeared. If his murder is in any way related to Operation Rescue's website or their group in general, I suggest that they be charged with aiding and abetting murder and terrorism.

As for Mr. FUCKNUT himself Randall Terry, don't piss your panties!! Barack Obama isn't going to label you and your psychotic, MURDERING, terroristic FUCKNUTS for what you really are. He's not going to do anything to shut down your terrorism websites. He's not going to do anything to stop your attempts to eliminate every abortion doctor out there. He'll continue to let you roam free!!

If you FUCKNUTS think that offing another abortion provider is going to put an end to abortions in this country or somehow stop women from seeking abortions, you're just that. FUCKNUTS!!

You're terrorists, but you're not scaring anybody!!

Finally, a little justice has been served.

Jury Convicts Mother Who Prayed for Daughter Instead of Treating Her Fatal Diabetes

WAUSAU, Wis. — A jury Friday found a central Wisconsin mother guilty of killing her 11-year-old daughter by praying for her to heal instead of rushing her to the doctor.

A Marathon County jury deliberated about four hours before convicting Leilani Neumann, 41, of rural Weston, of second-degree reckless homicide. No sentencing date was set. Neumann remains free on bond.

"We have another shot on appeal," defense lawyer Gene Linehan said. "Obviously, there will be an appeal."

Neumann left the courtroom clutching her husband as her three other children, looking stunned, followed. She declined comment.

Neumann's daughter, Madeline, died of untreated diabetes March 23, 2008, surrounded by people praying for her. When she suddenly stopped breathing, her parents' business and Bible study partners finally called 911.

Prosecutors contend a reasonable parent would have known something was gravely wrong with Madeline and her mother recklessly killed her by ignoring obvious symptoms of how gravely ill she was. During closing arguments, Marathon County District Attorney Jill Falstad described Neumann as a religious zealot who let her daughter, known by the nickname Kara, die as a test of faith.

"Religious extremism can be dangerous," Marathon County District Attorney Jill Falstad said. "In this case, it was fatal. Basic medical care would have saved Kara's life — fluids and insulin. There was plenty of time to save Kara's life."

Linehan countered, saying Neumann didn't realize her daughter was so ill and did all she could do to help, in line with the family's belief in faith-healing.

He said Neumann was a devout Christian who prays about everything and took good care of her four children.

"Religious extremism is a Muslim terrorist," Linehan said. "They are saying these parents were so far off the scale that they murdered their child. The woman did everything she could to help her. That is the injustice in this case."

Neumann's stepfather, Brian Gordon of San Diego, said he was disappointed by the verdict and the jury was mistaken. He said his stepdaughter did nothing wrong in trusting in God to heal her daughter.

"We should have that right in this country," he said.

There will be a vigorous appeal and an investigation of possible prosecutorial misconduct, the stepfather said. "I don't care how far we have to carry this. There will be vindication and exoneration."

Gordon also said he was angered by Falstad's description of his family as religious extremists.

"We definitely are not terrorists," he said. "We are Bible-believing, God-believing, Holy Ghost-filled people who want to do right and be right."

Falstad declined to comment after the verdict because Madeline's father, Dale Neumann, faces the same charge and is scheduled to stand trial in July.

Jurors also declined to talk with reporters.

Neumann showed no reaction when the verdict was read. Before the jury took the case, she and her husband clutched each other and silently prayed with another man. Then she went to each of her other children sitting on a front-row courtroom bench and kissed them on the cheek.

She faces up to 25 years in prison.

True justice will come when this woman gets sentenced. Hopefully she'll get the 25 year max!!

That girl didn't have to die. All she needed was some medical attention, and her parents refused to get it for her because GOD WOULD HEAL HER!! Yeah, the prayers really worked. Right?????

Nobody said they were terrorists. They said that they were religious extremists, and that's exactly what they are!!

Where Are The Pro-lifers On This Issue?

Where are the pro-lifers on this issue? Why aren't they out there protesting this woman? Oh, I forgot!! The kid has already been born so who the hell cares!!

Minn. cancer patient back home, faces court date

NEW ULM, Minn. – A 13-year-old cancer patient and his mother who spent a week on the run to avoid forced chemotherapy faced a court hearing Tuesday to determine the boy's medical fate.

Daniel Hauser and his mother, Colleen, arrived back in Minnesota on a chartered plane early Monday after sparking a nationwide search.

Brown County court officials said a custody hearing for Daniel was scheduled for 2:15 p.m. CDT.

Shortly before the hearing, family friend Dan Zwakman told reporters at the courthouse that the Hausers seemed ready to accept chemotherapy. "There's still going to be conflict, but I think we can work through it," he said.

Zwakman said he had spent about 12 hours with the family on Monday. He said Daniel had enough energy to work in the family garden, and was still very much against chemotherapy

Jennifer Keller, the California attorney who helped arrange the Hausers' return to Minnesota, said Colleen Hauser will continue to seek permission to use alternative treatments for her son's cancer "that aren't toxic."

"But she'll abide by what the court says," Keller said.

Daniel Hauser, who has Hodgkin's lymphoma and has been refusing chemotherapy, was examined by a doctor after his return. He's in the protective custody of Brown County, but was allowed to spend the night at the family farm in Sleepy Eye, with a deputy on duty, County Attorney James Olson said.

Olson said that since Colleen Hauser returned to Minnesota voluntarily, he would likely dismiss a felony complaint against her. FBI spokesman E.K. Wilson said a federal charge of unauthorized flight would also likely be dropped.

But Olson indicated Colleen Hauser and her husband, Anthony Hauser, would have little choice but to go along with the court's desire to treat Daniel with chemotherapy.

"A lot depends upon the attitude of the parents, their willingness to get on board with a treatment plan," Olson said Monday.

There was no immediate response to a message left at the Hausers' home Tuesday seeking comment.

Keller said she met the mother and son on Sunday, after another attorney told her the family wanted to return to Minnesota but didn't know what to do. Keller then notified authorities and arranged for the plane. Keller said criticism pointed at Colleen Hauser is unfair.

"They always expected to return," Keller told The Associated Press in a phone interview late Monday. "She's horrified people perceive her as hiding out. That isn't what she intended."

Keller said Daniel Hauser looked fine but was tired.

"He wasn't in any acute distress," Keller said. "He was quite tired. He was very, very eager to get home."

Daniel underwent one round of chemotherapy in February, but stopped after that, citing religious beliefs. The family prefers natural healing practices suggested by a religious group called the Nemenhah Band, which says it follows American Indian beliefs.

A judge ruled the parents medically neglected Daniel and ordered them to get him an updated chest X-ray as well as select an oncologist for a re-evaluation. After the X-ray showed a tumor in Daniel's chest had grown, the mother and son left town.

The FBI said the pair flew to Los Angeles. Investigators suspected they might have been heading to one of a number of alternative cancer clinics in northern Mexico.

Zwakman, himself a member of the Nemenhah Band, told WCCO-AM earlier that the Hausers did want to get alternative treatment in Mexico but were afraid to cross the border because of reports of violence against Americans.

Dr. Bruce Bostrom, the pediatric oncologist at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota who diagnosed Daniel's cancer in January, said he was happy to hear of the boy's return.

"I'm delighted," Bostrom said. "I've been so worried that he was going to die in Mexico. I've been praying for his safe return, so I think my prayers will be answered."

Hodgkin's lymphoma has a 90 percent cure rate in children if treated with chemotherapy and radiation, but doctors said Daniel was likely to die without those treatments.

Gee, it must be nice to be able to kidnap your kid and disappear with him in order to avoid getting him medical treatment, and have all warrants against you dropped. All you have to do is come back "voluntarily" and all is forgotten!! Do you think you or I would get away with that? Hell no!!

This woman should be in jail for one reason. She kidnapped her kid to avoid a court order!! That's a crime, regardless of the fact that she came back "voluntarily". Anyone who helped hide them should be arrested too!!

If her son dies and his death is related in any way to her refusal to have him undergo chemotherapy or to this little stunt she pulled, she should be charged with his death.

As I said before, the pro-lifers are silent on this story. He's not a fetus so they don't care!! How shocking!!

P.S. She should be footing the bill for every search that was conducted in Minnesota, nationwide, and worldwide. As a taxpayer of this state, I'll be damned if I'm going to pay even a penny for this little stunt!!


It is a very disgusting day in this country when a Supreme Court rules that BIGOTRY and HOMOPHOBIA is okay. FUCK YOU CALIFORNIA!! I want nothing to do with California. I will not buy anything that comes from that state. I will not visit that state. At one point I wanted to move there, but not anymore. As far as I'm concerned, California can go to hell!!

To all you fucking Christian bigots, fuck your marriage, fuck your religion, and FUCK YOU!!

To all the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people of California, you've now been declared by the courts in California and all the bigots in your state to not be human. You've now been told that you have no rights!! Get out in the streets, and refuse to leave!! Get out in the streets and fight for your rights!! Make life HELL!!

What does Obama have to say about this? That bigotry and homophobia has been made LEGAL in this country? Oh wait, he doesn't care!! To him, a gay person doesn't deserve the right to marry. To him, a gay person is less than human!! To him I say too, FUCK YOU!!

Shut Off Your TV And Snap Back To Reality

This has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've seen in a long time. I admit it!! I've watched American Idol before. I've never actually sat through an entire season of the show. I watch the auditions up through Hollywood week just to get a laugh!! It's quite entertaining!!

What you're about to read just proves that people in this country take television way too seriously, and clearly have their priorities out of whack.

America Gets It Wrong: Kris Allen Wins 'Idol'

Hello, readers...I can't believe I'm actually typing these words--in capslock format, yet--but here goes...


Now, my regular readers know I am extremely crushed--CRUSHED!--by this news. I might have been rooting for Bo Bice in season 4 and Blake Lewis in season 6, but their respective defeats were much easier for me to take (and much more expected) than this shocking setback.

Adam Lambert was my unabashed early favorite the instant I saw a viral video of him glamming and hamming it up in a Hollywood rock band wearing vaccum-packed pleather pants and some sort of bizarre man-corset. Back then, I jadedly assumed he wouldn't even make the top 13, because his theatrical antics--along with those much-discussed Interweb JPEGs of him floating around--would likely alienate much of America. But soon it seemed like none of that "scandalous" stuff mattered much to the viewing public, and Adam subsequently kept getting voted through based on his TALENT.

I started to believe that there was a subtle cultural shift going on in this country. I mean, if a black, Democratic president could be elected in 2008, then surely a black-nail-polished, androgynous Idol could win in 2009, right? Yes he could!

Well, that did not happen. In perhaps the biggest upset in AmIdol history, the competition's darkest dark horse, the little contestant that could, the tortoise to Adam's hare--Kris Allen--took home the Idol title tonight.

But you know, maybe it wasn't such an "upset" after all. Maybe it was foolish of me to think that a copiously mascara'd, leather-sheathed, rock-operatic free spirit from Southern California could actually beat out a clean-cut, happily married church worship leader from Arkansas who kind of looks like Joey from Friends.

Then again...maybe Adam's defeat had NOTHING to do with any sort of liberal/conservative, guyliner/guy-next-door cultural divide after all. Maybe it was just all the over-the-top weekly hype surrounding Adam that created an unfortunate but inevitable backlash--especially the judges' blatant favoritism, which even I will admit was a bit much and would have bothered me a lot if I hadn't so wholeheartedly agreed with the judges or personally found Adam so uniquely deserving of such fawning. But perhaps Lambertmania turned off a lot of other voters, or made voters assume that Adam didn't "need" this victory as much as underdog Kris did.

Whatever the reason, I don't want Allen fans to think I have anything against Kris. I believe Kris is talented and authentic, and I'm glad he made it to the finale instead of any number of other contestants (like Danny Gokey, Lil Rounds, Scott MacIntyre, Anoop Desai--but NOT Allison Iraheta, whom I adored). I think Kris was a worthy opponent for Adam. I just don't think he deserved to WIN.

I honestly think America (or, more specifically, America's Danny Gokey fans, who possibly defected to Kris's side after Gokey left and effectively bridged that million-vote gap between Adam and Kris) got it very wrong here.

I will just take solace in the fact that a) Adam Lambert will get a record deal anyway; b) not winning may allow Adam to have more creative control over his debut album, and thus he'll release more genuinely freak-flag-flying material; c) Adam won't have to release that insipid "No Boundaries" as his first single; and d) Adam will probably outsell Kris in the long run.

Feel free to post your comments about the season 8 winner now, and let me know if you think Adam was robbed or if the right singer prevailed tonight.

Oh my God!! This has to be the most hilarious thing I've ever read in my life. I particularly love the choice of words like "shocking setback", "CRUSHED", and "taking solace". Or, how about the comparison of Adam Lambert to Barack Obama? You gotta love that!!

This was a damn TELEVISION SHOW!! So the "favorite" didn't win. The "darkest, dark horse" received the "title" of American Idol. And? Has the world ended yet? Are we going to die because Adam Lambert doesn't hold this sacred title?

Six months ago nobody knew who the hell Adam Lambert was. All of a sudden he's been "robbed" and a ridiculous title that he DESERVED was somehow stolen from him?

Have we gotten that insane in this country? Never mind the fact that our country is murdering people in Iraq and Afghanistan under the guise that we're bringing FREEDOM to their citizens. Never mind the fact that Congress just slipped a measure into the credit card legislation that allows for loaded concealed weapons to be brought into national parks. Never mind the fact that Barack Obama will sign this legislation because he doesn't want to fight with gun owners. Never mind the fact that people are losing their jobs every single day. Never mind the fact that people don't have health care. Never mind REALITY!! What really matters is a television show that gives away a title that means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! What really matters is that the "wrong" person won American Idol!! RIGHT?????

If you want a laugh or want to see how truly insane people are in this country, check out the comments that people posted.

Rachel Alexandra Kicks Ass!!

I said it would happen and it did!! The FEMALE horse Rachel Alexandra kicked ass at the Preakness from start to finish, and beat the BOYS!!

If she runs in the Belmont and wins, that will be fantastic!! If she runs in the Belmont and doesn't win, that's okay too. If she doesn't run in the Belmont, fine!!

You see, it really doesn't matter anymore. She did what everyone said she couldn't. She won!! Egotistical, greedy, chauvinistic MALE owners tried to keep her from even competing. She showed up. She did her thing. The silence from these MEN was deafening!!

Even though she won by one length, she did what I said she would. She wiped the track with their asses from the start!!

I'm sure that I won't have a voice tomorrow after screaming!! But it is all worth it because her win made me proud!! This isn't a club for BOYS only anymore!! Step aside and let the best horse win.

Well, You Know, What Can I Say?

I told you so sounds so trite and juvenile.

But you know what?

I told you so. Me and a large number of people that truly give a shit about left politics, because we are true leftists and not salesmen with a fancy slogan or sheep that will blindly follow anything not named Bush.

Does it surprise any of us that Barack Obama would go back on his promise to be the head of a transparent administration? Nope.

Does it surprise us that Barack Obama wouldn't give a shit about the American people and what they want? Nope.

These photos, says the king, would endanger the American soldier and raise "anti-American" sentiment. Because "running two wars" isn't endangering the American soldier. Because killing innocent people doesn't raise "anti-American" sentiment.

When challenged that he was going back on his bullshit claim to transparency, Obama countered so weakly, he might as well have kept his lying trap shut. His response: the American people know all about torture and, besides which, this torture took place long before my administration came into power.

Oh, okay. So sorry to trouble you with the law, Mr. Constitutional Professor. I'll let you get back to playing with your damned dog and making pretty speeches now.

What a great reply to the charge of being a typical lying politician. Yep, sure am, but the Bush thugs are the ones that did the torturing.

Aren't you fucking tired of being treated like you're a fucking idiot by people like Barack Obama? You can't handle seeing these photos, ladies and gentlemen. Your minds would melt down and drip out of your ears and pool at your feet.

Hey, wasn't that the same excuse the Bush thugs used as to why we couldn't see any "evidence" of anything (Osama bin Laden's proported guilt in the attacks of 9/11/01, the WMDs in Iraq, etc., etc., etc.)? We have to protect the American people. Wasn't that the same excuse?

Maybe you're not sick and tired of being treated like a child or a dumbfuck (and by the number of calls coming to C-SPAN as I write this, you ARE NOT sick and tired of being treated like a child or a dumbfuck). Maybe you like to continue to be fed bullshit and told it's ice cream. Maybe you believe that the king is right and we should never know the truth because we're too immature to handle it.

In that case, I need to ask you, what separates you from a Bush sycophant and Barack Obama from Bush/Cheney/Rice?

So sorry for getting this guy right in the first place. But I told you so.

And For That They Should Be Banned

I don't know what the rules are in horse racing. But if owners intentionally try to sabotage another owner who wants to enter a horse in a race, I think they should be banned from the competition.

Owners go overboard in effort to foil filly
Instead of enjoying moment, Allen and Zayat take low road

Owners of top thoroughbred racehorses usually know enough to limit themselves to simple acts like walking their horses to the winner’s circle, waving silver cups aloft and mouthing inanities about doing what’s best for the horse. But two members of that elite club forgot themselves this weekend and began acting like a couple backroom chiselers.

Mark Allen, co-owner of Kentucky Derby winner Mine that Bird, and Ahmed Zayat, who pays the bills for Derby runner-up Pioneerof the Nile, became big Preakness news by concocting a scheme to keep sensational filly Rachel Alexandra out of Saturday’s race. The plan ultimately failed when the two swelled-heads finally heeded some urgently whispered words of advice, but in the process they provided a glimpse into the win-at-all-costs mentality that plagues many of the sport’s high-stakes players and revealed an ugly truth about horse racing.

These two fell into the trap of forgetting that letting Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness would be good for horse racing’s fans, and what’s good for the fans is good for the sport.

Rachel Alexandra, who won the Kentucky Oaks by 20 1/4 lengths, was not nominated to the Triple Crown races and was not expected to compete in the Preakness. But after she was purchased by Jess Jackson and a partner last week, they said they would enter the filly in the second leg of the Triple Crown, where she would likely be the heavy favorite.

That led to a phone call that might end up being as notorious in racing circles as Rod Blagojevich’s conversations about Barack Obama’s Senate seat are among aficionados of Illinois politics.

To recap and rebuke, Zayat first revealed the plot Sunday morning in an interview with HRTV in which he claimed that Allen had called him that morning and urged him to overfill the Preakness field, forcing Rachel Alexandra to the sidelines.

As recounted by Zayat, the conversation went like this: “I got a phone call earlier today … and, lo and behold, it was the owner of the Derby winner, Mine That Bird, and he said, ‘Mr. Zayat, you don’t know me, I’m Mark Allen. Listen I have a request for you. I think this race is between me and you. You’d have been the favorite if Rachel Alexandra is not in the field and I’m looking for vindication that my colt was not a fluke, and I’m sure you are looking to beat us also. I think this match is between us, it’s a rivalry. I’m going to be entering a colt … to fill the field. I understand you are the No. 1 owner in number of nominations — 22 colts — can you please help us. It’s good for the game.’ ”

Zayat’s smarts desert him
Zayat, who holds degrees in business and public health from Boston University and Harvard University, is a smart guy, but the rest of his rambling remarks in the HRTV interview and another on TVG left little doubt that Triple Crown fever is galloping around his big brain.

First he claimed that racing blueblood Marylou Whitney also was in on the plot, and planned to enter the marginal contestant Luv Gov. (Whitney’s camp later said they do intend to enter Luv Gov, but not if it would knock Rachel Alexandra out of the field, which is capped at 14 horses.)

Then Zayat ripped the scab off racing’s most painful wound, invoking the death of the filly Eight Belles shortly after crossing the finish line in the 2008 Kentucky Derby.

“People are concerned that it would not be for the good of the sport,” he said of a Preakness involving Rachel Alexandra. “Nobody wants a situation like we had last year with Eight Belles."

Allen, meantime, was explaining away his participation in the scheme as a legitimate business move aimed at holding onto Mine That Bird’s jockey, Calvin Borel. Borel, who rode Mine That Bird to a 6 3/4-length victory in the Derby, made clear days earlier that he would ride Rachel Alexandra — who he says is the best horse he has ever piloted — if she was entered in the Preakness.

“I just want my rider back,” said Allen, announcing plans to enter the maiden Indy Express in the race.

Word of the collusion hit Internet news sites and racing blogs, igniting a firestorm of criticism, and Allen and Zayat began to furiously backpedal.

Allen said later he had decided his efforts to retain Borel were misguided, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

“There was a shot I could keep that good filly out by putting that maiden in,” Allen said, the newspaper reported. “(But) that just wouldn’t be right to do. This horse, if he had a couple of allowance wins or was a graded-stakes horse, I’d probably do it. But to put a maiden in there isn’t right.

“You know, I thought other people were putting horses in to keep her out, but that isn’t right, either. After talking to my dad and Dr. (co-owner Leonard) Blach and taking a Harley ride, I kind of come to my senses. .. . It was selfish, definitely selfish. I was getting greedy. It was the wrong thing to do.”

That last remark is particularly ironic, as Allen’s main claim to fame before Mine That Bird won the Derby was as a minor character in Alaska’s ongoing political corruption trial. His father, Bill Allen, testified last year that his son delivered a bribe of several thousand dollars on his behalf to an unnamed state legislator.

‘For the good of the game’
Zayat also had a change of heart, telling the Blood Horse that “after talking to the president of the Maryland Jockey Club, I have decided I don’t want to be viewed as not being a sportsman, so I am happy not to block her for the good of the game. Please understand this is not about me; this is about the industry, and although what is right is not very clear to me I am happy to reconsider my decision for the fans.”

Although it’s nice to hear concepts like sportsmanship creep into this creepy conversation at long last, the words of contrition ring false.

It’s clear that the motivation for keeping Rachel Alexandra out of the race was as simple as the millions of dollars that a Preakness winner can be expected to command in the breeding shed. And it’s even more obvious that both owners know that their chances of beating her Saturday are slimmer than their rationales for trying to exclude her.

This is just asinine!! The apologies are beyond insincere, so much so that they're laughable.

Anyone who conspired here to attempt to keep that horse out of the race should be banned from the Preakness at least. Their horses should be banned from competing as well!!

Oh, and why was the Eight Belles comment necessary? Was that a threat from Zayat? If Rachel Alexandra wins or comes close to beating "the boys," is she going to end up like Eight Belles? Is she going to be put down on a track in front of the whole world too so that she can't come back and repeat the same thing at the Belmont? What exactly does Mr. Zayat know that we don't about what happened with Eight Belles? Did someone mess with that horse and cause injuries prior to the race that were only exacerbated by the race?

Or is he just being a rich little asshole who never learned the concept of sportsmanship? What's the matter? Didn't Mommy and Daddy teach him how to share?

Are these men honestly that afraid of losing that they would intentionally try to keep this horse out of the race? We know it's 100% about money and has absolutely nothing to do with the fans!! Who the hell are these men that they think they have a RIGHT to dictate what horses can race and what horses can't? Who the hell are these men that they think they have a RIGHT to dictate to the fans what the FANS WANT TO SEE?

If they and their horses are not banned from the Preakness, I hope that Rachel Alexandra shows up and shows up big!! I hope that horse wipes the track with their asses and makes the owners look like the jackasses that they are!!

The CHUMP "Saves" Miss California

Yeah, that's right people!! The CHUMP saved Miss California. So, what have we learned from this? It's okay to lie, as long as The CHUMP thinks your nude photos are "beautiful". Is he grooming her for wife number (you fill in the blank)?

I'm really sick and tired of hearing about how this liar is being attacked because of her answer on the issue of gay marriage. First of all, she's an idiot. I don't know what COUNTRY she lives in, but in the majority of the United States of America gay people aren't allowed to marry. In her answer, she stated that they could.

Second of all, she's entitled to voice her opinion. However, she has crossed the line when she CHOSE to solicit donations for NOM instead of attending to the business of being Miss California. She is supposed to represent all of California, not just those who share her beliefs!!

The point is, she lied when she CHOSE to run for Miss California. She signed a contract in which it clearly asked if she had posed for nude or semi-nude photographs. She said no. The last time I looked at a job application it stated directly above the signature line that "All answers and information provided are truthful and correct." It also states that if I provide false information on the job application, I'm subject to a fine and possible imprisonment. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't she technically have a JOB as Miss California. Isn't her application for the beauty pageant essentially a JOB APPLICATION?

She has lied so many times that she can't even keep her lies straight. First she denied the fact that photos existed of her. Then she claimed that the photos were taken when she was 17. Then she said there were no more photos. More photos appeared. Now she says that the photos were taken when she was 16, and she doesn't remember what she did when she was 16.

If it's true that the photos were taken when she was 17, why didn't she tell her parents? Why weren't police contacted? After all, she was a minor and taking nude or semi-nude photos of a minor is illegal and is considered CHILD PORNOGRAPHY. If they were taken when she was 16, why weren't her parents and the police notified? Could it be because she LIED about that too? Could it be because they were taken, as some have said, THIS PAST YEAR? That scenario seems more plausible given the fact that she has breast implants in most of these photos. She got the implants when she entered the pageant scene because they were bought and paid for by the pageant officials in California.

Miss California is not a role model. She does not represent the entire population of California. She didn't fulfill her obligations as Miss California. She has lied so many times. Yet she gets to keep her crown because the CHUMP thinks she's beautiful. She has the audacity to stand up at the press conference and cry her little crocodile tears. She has the audacity to slander Perez Hilton over and over again. I agree with Perez. She is a stupid bitch. She deserved to lose her crown.

I can't wait for more photos to surface, and surface they will!! According to HEADLINE NEWS this afternoon, there are more photos and even a video that are about to come out. Who is she going to blame then?

On another note, the bitch doesn't need a crown. She needs a straight jacket!!

When asked by James Dobson why she gave the answer she did to the gay marriage question she said and I quote, "I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, "Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you're not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA."

"And I knew right here that it wasn't about winning. It was about being true to my convictions."

So, Satan was trying to tempt her? And she was talking to God? Can we say, INSANE? Oh, and I thought that she claimed she would have won but her answer cost her the crown? According to the pageant officials, her score before she even entered the question portion of the pageant was low enough to the point that it was impossible for her to win regardless of how she did during the rest of the pageant.

She is full of shit. She needs to stop soliciting donations for NOM, and try to get her lies straight!! She needs to stop slandering people!! She's the fakest bitch around, and the only people stupid enough to fall for her innocent victim routine is the CHUMP and her fellow CHRISTIAN LUNATICS!!

Update To Whose "Mistake" Is It Anyway?

On Friday, I posted about Mike Malloy and his commentary on the latest massacre of the Afghan people and how he omitted Barack Obama from the condemnation.

Today, there's another element to the story.

Concerns white phosphorus used in Afghan battle

Here we go again. Except, this time, we're hearing about it in Afghanistan, rather than Iraq. Yet another war crime committed. The use of white phosphorus in warfare is illegal. What part of this does the military and, consequently, the commander-in-chief not understand? And why is no one being held to account over this? I thought there was supposed to be some kind of "change" coming. Apparently not.

I hope I read about this story on Mike Malloy's website tomorrow. I hope I see the name Barack Obama pop up in the same commentary and I hope there's a repudiation of the president and what's he's doing to the Afghan people. I hope Mike calls Obama a war criminal.

But I'm not going to hold my breath. If it hasn't happened yet, it's never going to.

Prove me wrong, Mike.

Suspended For Going To Prom?

So much for thinking that Christians couldn't get more ridiculous!!

Ohio teen expects to be suspended for trip to prom

FINDLAY, Ohio – An Ohio teenager says he expects to be suspended from a Christian school for attending a public school prom with his girlfriend.

Officials at Heritage Christian School in Findlay had warned 17-year-old Tyler Frost that he would be suspended and prohibited from attending graduation if he went to the Saturday dance. The fundamentalist Baptist school in northwest Ohio forbids dancing, rock music and hand holding.

Frost says he went to the dance because he wanted to experience the prom and didn't think it was wrong.

School officials say he could complete his final exams separately to receive a diploma.

Frost's stepfather says the rules shouldn't apply outside of school and he may take legal action if Frost is suspended.

Yes, because we all know that dancing, rock music, and hand holding is the work of the DEVIL!!

This is so beyond ridiculous!! I do hope that his stepfather does take legal action if he's suspended. He has a right to finish school and graduate just like everyone else. Who did he hurt by attending prom? God? It's not like he had sex with his girlfriend on the middle of the dance floor. And even if he did, what he does is NOT the school's business!!

Whose "Mistake" Is It Anyway?

Gotta ask that question today, thanks to yesterday's blog posting by Mike Malloy.

I won't recap my history with Mike because you've heard it a couple dozen times in the last year and five months.

The posting, callously and thoughtlessly titled "Oops, I Bombed You Again", a play on the title of a Britney Spears "hit" of yesteryear, talks about the Pentagon and their latest murderous bombing attack of the people of Afghanistan, massacring no less than fifty but maybe as many as 150 people in Ishaqzai and Agha Sahiban.

Mike took the Pentagon to the woodshed and ripped their ass open and rightly so.

But there's something missing from Mike's excoriation.

A name.


See, during the past eight years, anytime bombs would drop from the sky and onto innocent people, it wasn't just the Pentagon that was at fault, it wasn't just Pentagon "officials" that were war criminals.

Bush and Cheney (and Powell and Rice and Wolfowitz and Perle and Rove) were lumped in with Rumsfeld and Gates as thugs that should be hauled before The Hague and, at best, tossed into a deep dark pit.

But not now.

Not with the Empire's New Clothes (as Paul Street has called Barack Obama in the past) in place.

You know the old saying. Barack Obama may be a son of a bitch but he's our son of a bitch.

Yeah, he's also our war criminal. The "best" one we've got at the current moment.

Don't say you weren't warned.

Bristol Palin To Preach About Abstinence

Bristol Palin apparently believes that she has a RIGHT to preach to teens about abstinence.

'Learn from my example,' says Bristol Palin

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Teen mom Bristol Palin had a simple message for teens on Wednesday, the 8th Annual National Day to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.

The daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin – the 2008 vice presidential nominee – said in an interview on NBC's Today Show that she wanted other teens to "learn from my example."

"If you're going to have sex, I think you should have safe sex," the unwed, teenage mother said as she held her infant son, Tripp. "And, regardless of what I did or anything like that, I think that abstinence is the only 100 percent foolproof way of preventing teen pregnancy."

Her father, Todd, acknowledged that his daughter was negotiating difficult territory as she holds herself out as an increasingly public advocate for the cause of preventing teen pregnancy.

"It's kind of a fine line that we're definitely walking on," he said when asked whether the governor's daughter could both advocate for teens to abstain and encourage practicing safe sex.

The young mother did have one topic she was not willing to discuss in detail – her increasingly strained relationship with Levi Johnston, Tripp's father.

"I'm honestly not here to talk about my personal life," Palin told Lauer, adding that Johnston was involved in raising their son.

"They're working out a schedule," Todd Palin said of the young parents' arrangements. "I know that both of them will love and care for their son together."

In a recent interview with CNN's Larry King, Johnston and his family said they were considering legal action to protect his parental rights.

This girl shouldn't be preaching to teens about teen pregnancy and abstinence. She should be at home raising her child, finishing school, and getting a job!! She is not a role model. She is not someone to be admired. She is a spoiled little rich brat who didn't have the common sense to at least make her boyfriend put on a condom. I don't want to hear about the "heat of the moment" bullshit. That's the most ridiculous excuse I've ever heard!!

She wants to portray herself as though she is like all the other teen mothers out there. The fact of the matter is, she's not even close. She never will be like other teen mothers out there. She lives in a mansion that's paid for by the taxpayers of Alaska. She has more money than most people at her disposal. She is not struggling!!

I will be boycotting Candies, and anything affiliated with the company. Even if they pick a different spokesperson for their campaign, I will not support them by giving them my money. Get a REAL teen mother, and not some brat whose mother is almost certainly behind this latest scheme to come out of that household.

Kiefer Assaults Designer, Faces Charges

I don't watch 24. I don't refer to him as Jack Bauer. I don't care about him.

Kiefer Sutherland's Alleged Headbutt Victim: It Was a 'Vicious' Attack

Fashion designer Jack McCollough, who was allegedly headbutted by Kiefer Sutherland at a party in lower Manhattan early Tuesday morning, is slamming reports that he provoked the actor.

"Anyone who knows Jack McCollough knows that he would not hurt a fly," a rep for McCollough, of the New York-based fashion empire Proenza Schouler, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "All we can say at this point is that he was the victim of a vicious, violent, unprovoked assault and that the matter is in the hands of the authorities."

One report claims that McCollough bumped into fellow party guest Brooke Shields, prompting Sutherland to get physical with the designer. New York's Daily News reports that McCollough – a friend of Shields's – interrupted her and Sutherland while they were speaking outside the SoHo nightspot SubMercer and that Sutherland then allegedly headbutted McCollough after the two men exchanged words.

But one guest at the event tells PEOPLE that the altercation came as a surprise to bystanders. "Jack walked into the party and tried to order a drink, and then the next thing he knew, he got headbutted for no identifiable reason," the partygoer tells PEOPLE. "Jack did nothing other than walk into a party. He did not bump into Brooke. It's just puzzling.”

According to an NYPD spokesperson, the incident, which occurred around 2 a.m., is under investigation.

Sutherland's lawyer, Blair Berk, had no comment.

What needs to happen to him is that he needs to be arrested. He needs to be charged with assault. He needs to go to trial or plead guilty. And, his probation for his DUI conviction needs to be revoked.

He sat in jail for his DUI, and apparently he learned absolutely NOTHING!! You don't assault someone and think it's okay. I don't want to hear about how he has an alcohol problem and should be cut some slack. He assaulted someone and he should be punished.

He had potential, but he's really just a complete moron!! Throw the book at him!!

"Father Oprah"

For some reason I find this story to be rather hilarious!!

Scandalous photos surface of Fla.'s 'Father Oprah'

MIAMI – A Miami priest known as "Father Oprah" for offering relationship advice on the archdiocese's radio network is no longer broadcasting after photos surfaced that show him embracing a woman at a bar and at the beach, church officials said Tuesday.

Archdiocesan spokeswoman Mary Ross Agosta said the Rev. Albert Cutie met privately with his superior Tuesday, but it wasn't disclosed whether Cutie quit or was removed as head of the radio network and as pastor of St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church in Miami Beach.

Cutie issued a statement Tuesday evening saying he remains committed to serving God.

"I ask for the forgiveness of those who may be hurt or saddened by my actions," he said.

Agosta called Cutie a wonderful priest and said he is on a prayerful journey.

"He has consoled and celebrated and christened and been in contact with hundreds of thousands of people through his church and programs, and now it's time to ask for prayers for Father Albert," she said.

Cutie headed the archdiocese's Radio Paz and Radio Peace broadcasts, heard throughout the Americas and in Spain. The Cuban-American priest was born in Puerto Rico and previously hosted shows on Telemundo. He is also a syndicated Spanish-language columnist and author of the book "Real Life, Real Love: 7 Paths to a Strong, Lasting Relationship."

Cynthia Hudson, an executive vice president at the Miami-based Spanish Broadcasting System, said her company's Mega TV network was approached by a paparazzo about four to six weeks ago with photos and video purportedly showing Cutie and a woman. The paparazzo wanted more than $100,000 for the images, but she said the network was unable to verify their authenticity and said they posed an ethical quandary.

"There's an ethical line that you draw when you cannot prove beyond a shadow of a doubt," Hudson said.

The photos were published in the Spanish-language magazine TVnotas.

Earlier Tuesday, Archbishop John C. Favalora apologized to parishioners and listeners.

"Father Cutie's actions cannot be condoned despite the good works he has done as a priest," Favalora said in a statement. "Scandals such as this offer an occasion for the Church on all levels to examine our consciences regarding the integrity of our commitments to the Lord and to his Church."

Here is a priest who is being scorned, punished, and perhaps maybe even defrocked for possibly having a relationship with an ADULT. Not a child!! An ADULT!!

The Catholic Church is so quick to condemn "Father Oprah" who may or may not be having a consensual relationship with an ADULT woman. Yet for decades they lied about and attempted to cover up the sexual abuse of children by priests and nuns. To this day they continue to lie about and deny accusations of abuse.

I just find this story hilarious. He's not abusing a child. For that reason alone he should be applauded!!

Before some Catholic writes to tell me that I know nothing about the Catholic Church and attempts to "school" me on what's expected of a priest, allow me to stop you from wasting your time. He's not a pedophile. End of story!!

Judy Shepard Responds To Ms. Foxx

Judy Shepard responded to Ms. Foxx, and her bigotry!!

Judy Shepard rejects Rep. Foxx's apology
Matthew Shepard's mom says Foxx apologized for semantics, not ignorance

NEW YORK - Judy Shepard doesn't think Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., was sincere when she apologized for calling the 1998 murder of Shepard's son, Matthew, "a hoax."

"Attacks of lesser consequence have been said about Matt since the beginning... but I never expected it to be called 'a hoax,'" said Shepard Thursday on "The Rachel Maddow Show."

During a debate in the House of Representatives Wednesday, Foxx said that the death of Matthew Shepard shouldn't be used to justify a hate crimes bill because it wasn't a hate crime. Foxx said Shepard was killed during a robbery.

In a statement released the following day, Foxx said her comments didn't convey what she meant to say. "The term 'hoax' was a poor choice of words used in the discussion of the hate crimes bill," Foxx said.

Foxx said she relied on two news reports for her comments about robbery being a motive for the slaying. "Referencing these media accounts may have been a mistake, but if so, it was a mistake based on what I believed were reliable accounts," she said.

Judy Shepard, who was present when Foxx made the remarks, was unconvinced by the clarification. "It's apologizing for semantics but not her sentiment, her insensitivity or her ignorance," she said on MSNBC.

The bill approved by the House would expand a federal hate crimes law to include acts motivated by sexual orientation.

"Everyone knew Matthew's murder was a hate crime, but it couldn't be prosecuted as a hate crime. We couldn't call it a hate crime. Getting this bill passed in the House brings gay rights up to the level of equality," said Shepard.

The killing of the University of Wyoming student became a rallying point for the gay rights movement. Shepard was tied up, beaten and left for dead on a wooden fence. The two men who killed him are serving life sentences in prison. Prosecutors' cases included evidence with elements of robbery, drugs and hate against gays, but the court only determined that the men were guilty of murder and not why they killed Shepard.

"Hate crimes are a different kind of crime. They're meant to send a message to a community, not an individual. We need to address this somehow," said Shepard. She argues that the expanded legislation would allow the federal government to step in if there are biases against gays and lesbians that affect local law enforcement or prosecution. The expanded definition of "hate crime" would also entitle states to financial help.

"[Laramie] had to furlough four employees to pay for the investigation and the trial. They weren't eligible for federal resources and money," added Shepard.

She is hopeful that the bill will also pass in the Senate. "We know we have the support of the president and senators... I'm hopeful that all legislation to protect the gay and lesbian community will be addressed by the Obama administration."

Gay rights supporters were immediately critical of Foxx after she made the statements.

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., said the comments were "unreal, unbelievable."

Jim Neal, a one-time candidate for U.S. Senate from North Carolina who is gay, said Foxx showed ignorance in her comments.

"I'm baffled that any kind of elected representative would make that kind of absurd and heartless comment about a young man whose life was taken away from him, and taken away because he was gay," Neal said.

How did you like the verbal middle finger Virg? If it had been me, you would have gotten to see the "bird". And I would have told you exactly where you could put that "apology". But Judy is not me and I'm not her!! She handled it the way she saw fit!! I applaud Judy for not accepting the "apology".

Israeli Team Penalized, Team Bitches About It!!

An Israeli soccer team was penalized after fans chanted anti-Arab crap. The team then bitched about the penalties imposed, and they say that they plan to appeal.

Israeli team penalized for fans' anti-Arab chants

JERUSALEM - Defending soccer champion Beitar Jerusalem was penalized a point and ordered to play a home match in an empty stadium after fans shouted anti-Arab slogans.

The Israeli Football Association handed down the deduction after holding a special disciplinary hearing on Thursday. The association discussed reports that Beitar fans repeatedly chanted phrases deriding the Prophet Muhammad at a game against Maccabi Petah Tikva in April.

The team has had repeated run-ins with Israeli soccer authorities. Earlier this season, the league deducted two points from Beitar for fan violence.

The penalty deals a blow to the team's chances of winning a third successive league title. Beitar is seven points behind league leader Maccabi Haifa with five games left.

"Beitar Jerusalem is extremely disappointed with the IFA disciplinary court's ruling," the team said in a statement. "This decision significantly hurts Beitar and its achievements on the soccer pitch. The club intends to appeal this outrageous ruling."

Beitar was crowned league champion a year ago after a last-minute melee when its fans took the field in a premature celebration. Authorities threatened a points deduction, but later did not punish the team.

The team is owned by Israeli-Russian billionaire Arcadi Gaydamak.

Perhaps next time they should tell their fans to shut the hell up!!

I guarantee you that if the fans of the other team had been chanting anti-Israeli crap, the Israeli team would have no problem with that team being penalized!! But since they're being penalized, they're bitching!!

Did they tell the fans to shut up? I don't know!! Did they encourage the fans? I don't know!! But if they did, they deserve the penalty for inciting hatred!!

Does The Truth Hurt?

I really don't have a problem with what this Professor had to say.

California Professor Probed After Sending E-Mail Comparing Israelis to Nazis

A sociology professor at the University of California Santa Barbara is in the center of a heated debate about academic freedom after he sent an e-mail comparing "parallel images of Nazis and Israelis" to 80 of his students in January.

Two of William Robinson's students dropped out of his sociology of globalization class after they received the e-mail. The message also caught the eye of at least two national Jewish groups, including the Anti-Defamation League, which has called upon the tenured professor to "unequivocally repudiate" it.

"If Martin Luther King were alive on this day of January 19, 2009, there is no doubt that he would be condemning the Israeli aggression against Gaza along with the U.S. military and political support for Israeli war crimes, or that he would be standing shoulder to shoulder with the Palestinians," the 50-year-old Robinson wrote in his e-mail.

"I am forwarding some horrific, parallel images of Nazi atrocities against the Jews and Israeli atrocities against the Palestinians."

Dozens of photographs followed, depicting Holocaust victims in Nazi Germany and nearly identical images from the Israeli attack on Gaza. Robinson included a note that "Gaza is Israel's Warsaw."

The two students who dropped out of Robinson's class accused him of violating faculty code of conduct by disseminating personal or political matter unrelated to the course.

"I felt nauseous that a professor could use his power to send this email with his views attached, to each student in his class," senior Rebecca Joseph wrote. "Due to this horrific email I had to drop the course."

Robinson, who is Jewish and has been teaching at UCSB for nine years, is defending his message. He says the university's ongoing investigation is an attack on his academic freedom. He did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

In a letter to Robinson and UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang, Cynthia Silverman, regional director of Santa Barbara's Anti-Defamation League chapter, described the professor's comparison as "offensive" and said it "crossed the line well beyond" legitimate criticism of Israel.

"We also think it is important to note that the tone and extreme views presented in your email were intimidating to students and likely chilled thoughtful discussions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," Silverman wrote.

But Robinson's supporters, including prominent professor of linguistics Noam Chomsky, say the university's probe is improper and is an attempt to silence criticism of Israel.

"Unfortunately, there has been a wave of similar efforts to undermine academic freedom throughout the country in recent years," Chomsky wrote in a letter to Yang. "I hope and trust that the university will take a clear and strong stand in favor of principles that are central to free inquiry and expression, particularly so in a distinguished institution of higher learning such as this one."

A group called the Committee to Defend Academic Freedom at UCSB, which includes professors and Robinson's former students and teaching assistants, has been formed to back the professor. The group's Web site includes a letter of support and a call for an apology to Robinson from the California Scholars for Academic Freedom, which represents more than 100 professors from 20 colleges.

"The right to present controversial material in the context of a course — including opinions that may be deeply disturbing to some students — is an essential element of academic freedom," the group wrote. "This includes the right to criticize government actions, whether they be American, Israeli, or those of any other government."

Paul Desruisseaux, a UCSB spokesman, said a faculty committee has been formed to determine whether the case should be considered by school administrators.

"Given the nature of this case, there are some aspects of censure that could possibly by imposed that could probably fall short of dismissal," Desruisseaux told FOXNews.com. "And it's possible that this initial committee could determine it was just bad judgment. We need to let this process run its course."

Whatever the outcome of Robinson's case, a chilling effect will likely follow, particularly on local academics, according to Cary Nelson, national president of the American Association of University Professors.

"Some faculty will take it as an opportunity to exercise their free speech rights while others won't because they don't want calls from 20 reporters," Nelson said. "You'll get a dual effect."

Nelson, whose organization has not announced a formal opinion on Robinson's actions, said the professor appears to be in the clear.

"We wait and watch that inquiry," Nelson said. "It's easy to imagine how a course in globalization made some comparisons between different historical periods and different historical events.

"If it is related to class discussion, it is almost certainly to be covered by academic freedom."

Why should he repudiate anything? Does the truth hurt?

The fact of the matter is that Israel has gotten away with countless atrocities because the rest of the world is either complicit in those atrocities, or they are too cowardly to hold Israel accountable.

Israel is no better than the Nazis. They have committed genocide, and continue to commit genocide against not only the Palestinians but also the Lebanese. Nobody has the balls to call it GENOCIDE. They call it "self defense".

I applaud this professor for bringing this issue to everyone's attention. And if those students can't handle the truth, clearly they haven't been paying attention to REALITY!! Perhaps a college setting is not the place for them, and preschool may be more suitable!! They can continue to act like children while the rest of us ADULTS with brains can fight to put the truth out there, and call people out for their crimes!!
