Was He Pushed, Or Did He Trip?

Posted by Casey on January 13, 2010

Meehan standing over McCormack

Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack has made a lot of news lately. He’s alleged that he was ‘roughed up’ by a henchman from Democrat Martha Coakley’s camp. Coakley is currently the Attorney General in Massachusetts, and is running for the vacant US Senate seat.

That supposed henchman is Michael Meehan, a campaign volunteer. He has flatly denied pushing McCormack.

That is very interesting given that he’s issued an apology, and is claiming that he’s attempted to reach McCormack several times to ‘apologize for his part’ in the fall.

Why would you say you had any part in someone falling if you have already denied pushing the man?

Where the story gets really interesting is the AP’s story clearly states that McCormack tripped, and was not pushed.

So who’s telling the truth?

I don’t really know, and there may some truth to both statements.  However, so far McCormack’s story seems more solid given that Meehan is admittedly making great effort to apologize for something he says he didn’t do.

US Troops Who Get Pregnant To Face Jail Time

FINALLY!

As a former soldier I can personally attest to how much this irks soldiers. Pregnancy is the female soldier’s equivalent of shooting themselves in the foot to be rotated back home. Causing a self-inflicted wound however usually leads to some form of punishment. Women have been getting away with this for far too long.

FYI, the men who get them pregnant face the same jail time.

Daily Mail:

A top US commander is threatening soldiers who fall pregnant on active service with jail.

Under the new policy, troops expecting a baby face court martial and a possible prison term – and so do the men who made them pregnant.

And the rule applies to married couples at war together, who are expected to make sure their love lives do not interfere with duty.

Usual US Army policy is to send pregnant soldiers home from combat zones within 14 days.

But Major General Anthony Cucolo, who runs US operations in northern Iraq, issued the new orders because he said he was losing too many women with critical skills.

He needed the threat of court martial and jail time as an extra deterrent, he said.

All troops under his command are covered by the extension to the military’s legal code – the first time the US Army has made pregnancy a punishable offence.

Duke University’s New Sexist Rape Policy

Posted by Casey on December 21, 2009

New evidence has suggested that sexual misconduct on college campuses have declined. Sounds like great news, but there is an explanation. According to some in academia that simply means that “a plethora of rapes are going unreported.” One Ada Gregory, director of the Duke Women’s Center explained the decline as “higher IQ” males, such as those at Duke, could be “highly manipulative and coercive.”

Uh huh. Naturally, if there are less cases of misconduct it must be due to smart men manipulating weak women. And that’s coming from the Women’s Center?

More on the new policy …

The revised policy requires involving the Women’s Center in the disciplinary process for all known allegations of sexual misconduct and empowers the Office of Student Conduct to investigate even if the accuser does not want to proceed.

Duke’s rules define sexual misconduct so broadly and vaguely as to include any sexual activity without explicit “verbal or nonverbal” consent, which must be so “clear” as to dispel “real or perceived power differentials between individuals [that] may create an unintentional atmosphere of coercion” (emphasis added).

The disciplinary rules deny the accused any right to have an attorney at the hearing panel or to confront his accuser. The rules also give her — but not him — the right to be treated with “sensitivity”; to make opening and closing statements; and to receive copies of investigative documents.

Looks like Duke hasn’t learned their lesson.

Just One Other Way To Tell If You Are A Bad Parent

Posted by Casey on December 18, 2008

Most parents at some point doubt if they’ve been a good parent. There are some who are completely clueless, and in denial about their parental talents. Enter the Campbells from New Jersey.

They aren’t bad parents because they are from Jersey, but that was a great guess. The Campbells have actually discovered a way to be worse than just being parents from Jersey, and that takes some effort.

clipped from www.myfoxnepa.com

A New Jersey family who named their child after Adolf Hitler is having problems getting a birthday cake made for their 3-year-old.

The Campbells say they don’t understand what the big deal is. “ShopRite can’t even make a cake for a 3-year-old,” mother Deborah Campbell said.”That’s sad.”

The couple’s other two children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell.

blog it
  • Now it’s one thing to name your kid Adolf (FAIL).
  • It’s another thing to name them Adolf Hitler (FAIL).
  • Then you go and name another kid JoyceLynn Aryan Nation (FAIL).
  • And another Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie (FAIL).

If you want to be racist … be racist. After all, it’s good enough for Rev. Wright. But to drag your children into that ideology in this manner? You aren’t even giving your kids a remote chance of normalcy in life. They aren’t even allowed to hide the fact they are from a racist family to get ahead.  The Campbells are bad parents because they refused to allow their children the tool of plausible deniability.
