    There are all sorts of interesting points about this story.

    The American who became the country’s youngest convicted murderer at age 12 was released from prison Tuesday after serving 16 years for killing his father’s girlfriend.

    Curtis Jones, now 29, was convicted with his 13-year-old sister Catherine Jones, and sent to prison in 1999.

    First, what are the odds he’s changed his ways? But let’s back up:

    In 1999, the Jones children became the youngest people prosecuted as adults for murder in the United States after they confessed to killing their father’s girlfriend, Sonya Nicole Speights.

    Original reports said they killed her out of jealousy, but documents seen by news website Florida Today suggested [they killed] because they had been sexually abused by another male relative.

    Gee, Joe molested us, and dad didn’t listen, so we killed dad’s girlfriend. Makes sense to me! (not)

    Media reports say Jones is now an ordained minister. You know, like Jacson, Sharpton and other professional race-baiters.

    No surprise here – Amnesty International is ignoring what so-called “palestinians” do and falsely accusing Israel of war crimes.

    There is an ongoing state of war between Israel and terrorists who run the West Bank and more specifically the Gaza Strip.

    The claim?

    “There is strong evidence that Israeli forces committed war crimes in their relentless and massive bombardment of residential areas of Rafah in order to foil the capture of Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, displaying a shocking disregard for civilian lives,” Philip Luther, director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Amnesty International, said in a statement.

    This because the so-called “palestinians” allow military forces and their material to be intermingled with the civilian population, including in mosques, schools, hospitals and what are supposedly private residences. Plus terrorists don’t wear uniforms and openly admit to using ‘human shields’, many of whom fulfill that role voluntarily.

    These people, the alleged “palestinians”, have a culture that glorifies death, encourages their own children to strap on explosive laden vests and do their best to murder as many innocent civilians on the other side as possible. They fire rockets into Israel hoping to murder as many there as possible. And Amnesty International is silent.

    Israel accused Amnesty of “a false narrative – claiming that four days of military operations by the IDF were in direct response to the killing and kidnapping of one IDF soldier,” the foreign ministry said, referring to the Israel Defence Forces.

    “It seems that Amnesty forgot that there was an ongoing conflict – during which the IDF was operating to stop rocket fire and neutralise cross-border assault tunnels, and Palestinian terrorist organisations were actively engaging in intensive conflict against the IDF from within the civilian environment.”

    The UN report condemned the “indiscriminate” firing of thousands of rockets and mortars at Israel by Palestinian militants as well as the “huge firepower” Israel used in Gaza.

    The Palestinian enclave of 1.8 million people, under an Israeli blockade, has seen three wars in six years. Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip, is considered a terrorist organisation by Israel, the United States and the European Union.

    Amnesty International support and encourages terrorists.

    in any case, “palestinians” prove they’re moonbats: Time and time again they resort to violence, which brings violence in return, and they call results like this a victory:

    Last summer’s 50-day war took a heavy toll on Gaza, killing 2,251 Palestinians, including more than 500 children. Seventy-three people were killed on the Israeli side, including 67 soldiers.

    Well, at least, if they keep this up, the problem may solve itself!

    After parents’ home is robbed, chronic masturbator upset about being caught on hidden security cameras pleasuring self

    Or could it be one or both parents are voyeurs?

    I have done things while alone to help control certain feelings, and I have also walked around without much on when my parents were away and never thought anything about it.

    And here’s the bonus at that URL: A gay male who is shocked, SHOCKED, that his ‘boyfriend’ is cheating on him!

    Of course, we all know gays have a well documented history of monogamy, of faithfulness, right?

    I am a gay male and my boyfriend of three years just confessed to me that he’s been cheating on me for the better part of our relationship.

    This goes back to the post I made a long time ago that claimed that gays had stronger relationships because of they way they were so good at dealing with the so many problems they had. Let’s see how these two are coping:

    We went to counseling in an attempt to repair the damage that was done, and to see if I could regain any of the trust that I once had in him. During our counseling session he told me that he was sleeping with his stepbrother. I had forgiven him prior to this disclosure and thought I could move past it, but I’m no longer sure I can.

    Before he told me about the cheating, I had bought an engagement ring for him and was nearly finished paying for it. Now I am unsure if I want to pay it off because I am so appalled about what has transpired. On the other hand, I’m afraid it will affect my credit history if I don’t.

    A classic definition of a moonbat: One who claims they’re not going to end a bad relationship, rather they are going to double down on it, because doing the right thing, the smart thing, might damage their credit.

    “Liberals think of themselves as very open-minded, but that’s simply not true!” Says the liberal moonbat in a rare display of honesty!

    Make no mistake, in the end Camille Paglia appears to be a moonbat. But like Bill Cosby, she was right, honest and worth reading on some topics, sometimes.

    There are a few good nuggets here, and in part one of this two part bit.

    But even in her sane statements, her moonbat nature comes out. Look how, though she bashes those who loudly, publicly claim their atheism as if it’s bad to brag about being an atheist (and admittedly, who attack religion, which she claims she doesn’t do), she also claims she was the first to do that.

    But her excuse does make some sense in this case:

    I’m speaking here as an atheist. I don’t believe there is a God, but I respect every religion deeply. All the great world religions contain a complex system of beliefs regarding the nature of the universe and human life that is far more profound than anything that liberalism has produced. We have a whole generation of young people who are clinging to politics and to politicized visions of sexuality for their belief system.

    The real problem is a lack of knowledge of religion as well as a lack of respect for religion. I find it completely hypocritical for people in academe or the media to demand understanding of Muslim beliefs and yet be so derisive and dismissive of the devout Christian beliefs of Southern conservatives.

    But yes, the sneering is ridiculous! Exactly what are these people offering in place of religion? In my system, I offer art–and the whole history of spiritual commentary on the universe. There’s a tremendous body of nondenominational insight into human life that used to be called cosmic consciousness. It has to be remembered that my generation in college during the 1960s was suffused with Buddhism, which came from the 1950s beatniks. Hinduism was in the air from every direction–you had the Beatles and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Ravi Shankar at Monterey, and there were sitars everywhere in rock music. So I really thought we were entering this great period of religious syncretism, where the religions of the world were going to merge. But all of a sudden, it disappeared!

    I want to say she appears to be in denial – she sounds religious, but just not willing to commit to any one flawed religion.

    But you have to give her credit, she has some other moonbats figured out – just look at her snarky comments towards other moonbats:

    But this sneering thing! I despise snark. Snark is a disease that started with David Letterman and jumped to Jon Stewart and has proliferated since. I think it’s horrible for young people! And this kind of snark atheism–let’s just invent that term right now–is stupid, and people who act like that are stupid. Christopher Hitchens’ book “God is Not Great” was a travesty. He sold that book on the basis of the brilliant chapter titles. If he had actually done the research and the work, where each chapter had the substance of those wonderful chapter titles, then that would have been a permanent book. He appears to have done very little scholarly study. Hitchens didn’t even know Judeo-Christianity well, much less the other world religions. He had that glib Oxbridge debater style in person, but you’re remembered by your written work, and Hitchens’ written work was weak and won’t last.

    Dawkins also seems to be an obsessive on some sort of personal vendetta, and again, he’s someone who has never taken the time to do the necessary research into religion..

    Gotta give her credit, when she’s right, she’s right! Here’s a little more where she gets snarky with Jon Stweart, rightfully so:

    I think Stewart’s show demonstrated the decline and vacuity of contemporary comedy. I cannot stand that smug, snarky, superior tone. I hated the fact that young people were getting their news through that filter of sophomoric snark. Jon Stewart is not a major figure. He’s certainly a highly successful T.V. personality, but I think he has debased political discourse. I find nothing incisive in his work. As for his influence, if he helped produce the hackneyed polarization of moral liberals versus evil conservatives, then he’s partly at fault for the political stalemate in the United States.

    “Moral liberals.” What a concept!

    At what point will liberals wake up to realize the stranglehold that they had on the media for so long? They controlled the major newspapers and weekly news magazines and T.V. networks. It’s no coincidence that all of the great liberal forums have been slowly fading. They once had such incredible power. Since the rise of the Web, the nightly network newscasts have become peripheral, and the New York Times and the Washington Post have been slowly fading and are struggling to survive.

    Historically, talk radio arose via Rush Limbaugh in the early 1990s precisely because of this stranglehold by liberal discourse. For heaven’s sake, I was a Democrat who had just voted for Jesse Jackson in the 1988 primary, but I had to fight like mad in the early 1990s to get my views heard. The resistance of liberals in the media to new ideas was enormous. Liberals think of themselves as very open-minded, but that’s simply not true! Liberalism has sadly become a knee-jerk ideology, with people barricaded in their comfortable little cells. They think that their views are the only rational ones, and everyone else is not only evil but financed by the Koch brothers. It’s so simplistic!

    Now let me give you a recent example of the persisting insularity of liberal thought in the media. When the first secret Planned Parenthood video was released in mid-July, anyone who looks only at liberal media was kept totally in the dark about it, even after the second video was released. But the videos were being run nonstop all over conservative talk shows on radio and television. It was a huge and disturbing story, but there was total silence in the liberal media. That kind of censorship was shockingly unprofessional. The liberal major media were trying to bury the story by ignoring it. Now I am a former member of Planned Parenthood and a strong supporter of unconstrained reproductive rights. But I was horrified and disgusted by those videos and immediately felt there were serious breaches of medical ethics in the conduct of Planned Parenthood officials. But here’s my point: it is everyone’s obligation, whatever your political views, to look at both liberal and conservative news sources every single day. You need a full range of viewpoints to understand what is going on in the world.

    I agree with her last point, though look at her, openly admitting she was a ‘former member of’ Planned Parenthood. She makes some good points, though she also clearly spouts nonsense at times. But my agreement with the last statement I quoted here explains why I waste time looking at liberal viewpoints and liberal sites.

    Apparently, in the 1990s, she started making some sense and the liberals shunned her. Hopefully she doesn’t have any skeletons in her closet like Cosby apparently did or they will find them and attack her mercilessly, despite her liberal past.
