She deserved to be raped?

Posted on 11/02/2014 10:31:31 PM

A few days ago I was at a store not too far from where I live, and I overheard two guys, and a woman talking about another woman that accused a guy of raping her. I can tell that they didn’t believe her, it also seemed as if they personally knew this woman. The woman said that the girl was a ..

"They stole my heart"

Posted on 09/29/2014 04:59:08 PM

Nursing homes, no matter what the cost or the promises of services provided, are not places most would choose for their final days and yet that's where many will end up.  Either there or in some variation of a step-down facility that provides three levels of care as the need arises. Some older ..

One Day to Remember

Posted on 09/11/2014 08:09:34 PM

There is one question that will always elicit an historic response when asked and it is, "Where were you when..." The "when", of course, can stand for many of us to be September 11, 2001 or November 22, 1963 and the memory, forever frozen in our memories as though it were yesterday, is easily retrie..

Questioning Seclusion, Isolation and Solitary Confinement

Posted on 08/08/2014 10:06:47 AM

Transgender individuals who are sent to prisons are punished in ways too ugly for us to imagine. Simple criminal offenses do not give the right to any facility to sexually abuse, isolate or terrorize someone in any way. Our criminal justice system is supposed to mean responsible rehabilitation, but ..

Making a Mockery of the Elderly

Posted on 07/06/2014 05:56:33 PM

All of us enjoy having flowers or bows stuck or glued to our heads, don't we? If we don't, why would we make such a disrespectful display of an elderly woman celebrating her 116th birthday? She loves it, doesn't she? Sure she does. She probably didn't have anything to say about this disgusting disp..

Children, in incredible numbers, are crossing the borders of the US and they are coming unaccompanied in most instances. The number that will make the treacherous journey this year is expected to reach 90K and that's just in 2014. In 2015, the number of children will skyrocket to 142K ..

You're Not a Dummy or an Idiot

Posted on 06/29/2014 08:17:35 AM

Words have nuclear potential in terms of their effect, usually negative, on curiosity, self-esteem and joy. They can be unbelievably cruel in their intent or foolishly dismissive. Language, in fact, plays a major role in how we perceive ourselves and others and for that reason I, for one, bristle wh..

The Watchers You Don't Watch

Posted on 06/15/2014 10:20:37 PM

None of us needs to have any instruction on how hard a recession can hit not only our pocketbooks, but our psyche but a new research study out of Europe has provided the extent of the cost in human lives. Undoubtedly, during a recession the steady decline of personal finance and the choppi..

Powerful Levers and Not All in Guns

Posted on 06/13/2014 03:22:39 PM

Levers have made most things in our lives possible. They enable huge bits of stone, steel beams or machinery to be lifted by a single person working in a little tin box on wheels. The ancient Egyptians probably used some form of levers and pulleys to erect their stone monuments to their nobility. To..
