what a stupid piece of shite

Retired US general links Srebrenica fall to gays in Dutch army
By Agence France-Presse
A retired US general on Thursday said Dutch UN troops defending Srebrenica in the Bosnian war failed to prevent the 1995 genocide partly because their ranks included openly gay soldiers.
John Sheehan, a former NATO commander and senior Marine officer, made the remarks at a senate hearing where he argued against plans by President Barack Obama to end a ban on allowing gays to serve openly in the US military.
Sheehan said that after the end of the Cold War, European militaries changed and concluded "there was no longer a need for an active combat capability."
He said this "socialization" process "included open homosexuality" and led to "a focus on peacekeeping operations because they did not believe the Germans were going to attack again or the Soviets were coming back."..............
why aren't parishioners up in arms? why are the masses ignoring this? oh sure, i can see if it was one or two priests. there are pedophiles everywhere, in every part of society. but no. it's NOT one or two. it's, well, we have NO idea how many it is. it was and most likely still is rampant. you cannot ignore this. you MUST demand action AND justice from the catholic church all the way up to your precious pope
Church Was Warned About Priest, Doctor Says
By NICHOLAS KULISH and KATRIN BENNHOLD
ESSEN, Germany — The German archdiocese led by the future Pope Benedict XVI ignored repeated warnings in the early 1980s by a psychiatrist treating a priest accused of sexually abusing boys that he should not be allowed to work with children, the psychiatrist said Thursday.
“I said, ‘For God’s sake, he desperately has to be kept away from working with children,’ ” the psychiatrist, Dr. Werner Huth, said in a telephone interview from Munich. “I was very unhappy about the entire story.”
Dr. Huth said he was concerned enough that he set three conditions for treating the priest, the Rev. Peter Hullermann: that he stay away from young people and alcohol and be supervised by another priest at all times.
Dr. Huth said he issued the explicit warnings — both written and oral — before the future pope, then Joseph Ratzinger, archbishop of Munich and Freising, left Germany for a position in the Vatican in 1982..............

they don't get it. they just don't and they NEVER will.
Supporters, opponents of health-care bill square off outside Kilroy's office
Underscoring the deep divisions rending America as a vote apparently nears on historic health-care legislation, hundreds of supporters and opponents chanted, waved signs and sought honks from passing motorists at competing lunchtime rallies yesterday on the Northwest Side.
The activists converged outside the district office of U.S. Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy, D-Columbus, for dueling campaign-style demonstrations aimed at influencing wavering lawmakers.
Kilroy, who was in Washington yesterday, says she will not decide how she will vote until she has a chance to review the final package. The congresswoman's offices in Washington and Columbus logged more than 1,500 calls on the issue Monday.
Police on foot and bicycles kept a close eye on the crowd that stretched along Olentangy River Road. Several loud exchanges occurred as some protesters got in each other's faces, but no physical clashes were reported..........
For many Americans, what happened in Columbus is what the healthcare issue is all about and the disdainful way in which the anti-healthcare protesters fling a few bills at the subject of their derision is a perfect illustration of everything that is wrong with the small-government narrative.
If this is what Conservative opposition to healthcare reform looks like, the Democrats have already won.............
Memphis music loses ‘Big Star’ — singer, songwriter Alex Chilton dies at 59
By Jody Callahan, Bob Mehr
Alex Chilton, the pop hitmaker, cult icon and Memphis rock iconoclast best known as a member of 1960s pop-soul act the Box Tops and the 1970s power-pop act Big Star, died Wednesday at a hospital in New Orleans.
The singer, songwriter and guitarist was 59.
"I'm crushed. We're all just crushed," said John Fry, owner of Memphis' Ardent Studios and a longtime friend of Chilton's. "This sudden death experience is never something that you're prepared for. And yet it occurs."...........
something MUST be done. in connecticut. in the united states. in the WORLD.
when we start treating animals with respect (i'm not talking individually here, that goes without saying. i'm talking AS A CULTURE OR A COUNTRY OR A SPECIES. human beings will never find peace with themselves. ever. until they are able to treat animals kindly
if you google animal abuse and domestic violence you'll find thousands of hits.
Animal Abuse as Clue to Additional Cruelties
By IAN URBINAResponding to growing evidence that people who abuse animals often go on to attack humans, states are increasing the penalties for animal cruelty and developing better methods for tracking convicted offenders.
State lawmakers are paying especially close attention to animal hoarders — people who keep large numbers of pets without providing for their most basic needs — because these offenders are prone to recidivism and can cost counties huge sums for cleanup costs and the care of rescued animals.
At least 27 states now allow courts to bar convicted animal abusers from owning or coming into contact with pets, nearly double the number from a decade ago, and 3 other states are considering similar measures this year. Tennessee and California are considering bills to create online registries of animal abusers...........
.............One study found that in 88 percent of homes where children were physically abused, pets were mistreated too. A 2007 study found that women abused by their intimate partner were 10 times more likely to report that their partner had hurt or killed one or more of their pets than women who were not abused................

Ask Shamu: The U.S. Tortures Both Human and Animal Prisoners
— By James Ridgeway
The terms "torture" and "solitary confinement" have surfaced over and over again in articles and commentaries about Tilikum, the captive killer whale who drowned his trainer at Florida's SeaWorld last month. For the most part, the authors of these pieces have sought mercy for Tilikum. While the six-ton orca had been implicated in two previous human deaths, they argue, Tilikum's torturous life in capitivity rendered his behavior understandable, however horrific its results may have been.
Many of Tilikum's defenders highlight the rare intelligence and sensitivity of orcas and other dolphin species. And by way of mitigating circumstances, they point to his tragic youth, in which he was forcibly ripped from his family and community, and to the lonely and restricted life he has lived ever since, released from isolation in his tank only to perform or to breed. ............
...................Even legendary marine explorer Jacques Cousteau weighed in years ago, stating "There’s about as much educational benefit studying dolphins in captivity as there would be studying mankind by only observing prisoners held in solitary...................

Blinded Merseyside soldier 'sees' with tongue device
A Merseyside soldier blinded by a grenade in Iraq has said his life has been turned around by technology that allows him to "see" with his tongue.
L/Cpl Craig Lundberg, 24, from Walton, Merseyside, can read words, identify shapes and walk unaided using the BrainPort device.
The machine converts visual images into a series of electrical pulses which are sent to his tongue.
The soldier said the device gives off "a pins and needles sensation".
L/Cpl Lundberg lost his sight while serving with the King's Regiment after being hit by a rocket propelled grenade in 2007.............
you'd think they would know better. a vast conspiracy by the state of hawaii and who knows how many others? i'm not understanding why the birthers are persisting with this. it's OBVIOUS and there is PROOF, barack obama (whom, i'm none too happy with either i'll add) WAS BORN IN THE USA
Audio: Virginia AG strategizes birther legal challenge
By Daniel Tencer
Political observers are wondering whether Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is a "birther" following the release of an audio tape in which Cuccinelli says that the claims that President Barack Obama was born outside the US are "within the realm of possibility."
In a question-and-answer session, audio of which was obtained by the Virginia blog Not Larry Sabato, Cuccinelli outlines a strategy for how Obama's citizenship can be challenged in the courts.
(Audio follows below.)

he's an even bigger one for
Rielle Hunter's GQ interviewto be disturbed by: her pet name for John Edwards, the photographs she posed for, and her claim that "he's very honest and truthful." Perhaps most bizarre, however, is Hunter's take on relationships.
At first glance, Hunter might not seem like the best relationship expert. After all, while involved in an illicit affair with a married presidential candidate, and pregnant with his child, she filmed a sex tape that, according to the Daily Beast, looks like this:
On the video, both participants are naked. Hunter is propped up against the hotel bed headboard, with John Edwards belly-down on the bed between her legs. As Hunter, the campaign's official videographer, holds the camera, a smiling Edwards performs oral sex. Because of the camera angle, Hunter's face is not visible, but her distinctive jewelry is. Not only does candidate Edwards know he's being filmed, one source says, he's also clowning around and "graphically performing for the camera."...........

(here's the american order site at breffo)
(p.s. i actually JUST pre-ordered one. want it for my desk at work)
A COURT has ordered two young girls to spend weekends with their sex offender father provided he puts a door on their bedroom they can lock.
Judge Robert Benjamin, in the Family Court's Hobart branch, ruled that the girls "need some protection from (their father), particularly at night".
However, the risk of sexual abuse was "diminished when they are awake and alert".
Judge Benjamin said that the father, who was convicted of downloading child pornography, must have an "adult friend" stay with him when the girls stayed overnight.
He added that until the youngest turned 14, the girls must "share the same room so they can have the mutual support of one another".
A Family Court counsellor said that the girls, aged ten and eight, "are at an age and maturity when awake, dressed and together it would be unlikely the father would act inappropriately toward them"............

Marijuana Policy Project / By Mike Meno
Joseph Casias, 29, has sinus cancer and an inoperable brain tumor.Despite his condition, he has dutifully gone to work every day for the last five years at a Walmart in Battle Creek, Michigan, where in 2008 he was named Associate of the Year.
Casias is also a legal medical marijuana patient under Michigan state law. He uses marijuana with the recommendation of his doctor to relieve the effects of cancer.
But Walmart, the world’s largest public corporation, has no sympathy for his condition or regard for Michigan’s state law. Last November,Walmart fired Casias because he tested positive for marijuana during a routine drug screening.............
