You realize that any evidence that they continued in the same behavior would be from a self-report. I suppose if we forced them into a study with lie detectors, we might find some valid answers. Until then…. I will say, “Find me the evidence that they don’t continue the same behavior,” and you will give the same answer I just did.

In the prison system, what Carson is referring to is called “being gay for the stay.”
You are right on target, Mustang. I believe it has always been the hope of this administration that Netanyahu not be re-elected. He will not play right, so he must go…. or at least be shunned at all costs.

Obviously not in Saranda’s world.

I’m surprised you didn’t say, “You gotta be kidding!”

The absence of our president, vice president, and any of our congress for this speech is disgraceful. There is no excuse for this lack of support.
This administration is getting so bad, the Kenyans are now claiming Obama was born in America.
Yes, odumbo is dividing the country as usual. Besides, there are no secrets that Netenyahoo disclosed to America. They hype that the MSM was building up to this speech has backfired right in their faces, yet, just watch how they will craftily spin this occasion to further make Netenyahoo look bad. Their next step will be to do everything they can to help him lose in the upcoming elections in Israel.

There is nothing in the Constitution about bakeries you solicit being required to make the cake for you that you want.
Your comments are the best. If I were gay, I might consider asking you to marry me.

Iraq should have been the 51st…. or at least under our rule like Hong Kong was ruled by Britain.
Jefferson State should have been 51, after No Cali and So Oregon split and let the progs eat themselves.
excellent post Foo!!
Eastern Washington would like to be out from under the yoke of Progressive Seattle as well!!
At the rate that the king is going the states will not have any authority or rights so there will only need to be one star representing the federal government.
Don't forget north and south Maine

The SPK (i.e., Self-proclaimed King) has exhibited plenty of actions and deeds to be critical of… they seem to be never-ending. Of course, it’s your questionable belief system that allows you to interpret his actions as harmless and/or beneficial vs. alarming. Time to wake up from your nap, Rip…. and make some coffee to smell.

JRook, I rarely agree with you, but here you have made a good point. A solid, validated psychological test tends to be more reliable than an inmate’s report that they are better, smarter, faster….lol. A good example is the MMPI, which will account for a subject attempting to exaggerate their presentation as overly good or bad. The test results will indicate that the measure is “invalid.” Inmates often hijack religion in an attempt to persuade the powers that be that they are rehabilitated, pose no future risk to the public, are trustworthy, etc. They also use religion to gain things they want inside the prison, such as special diet modifications. It is sad that this is the reality because it undermines those inmates who have developed a sincere relationship with God and are genuinely trying to improve themselves. It is also sad for those who are disingenuous and are merely using religion to “look” good. As understanding as God is, I can’t imagine He would think that is a good idea.

Risk assessments are not the gospel… it is simply a suggestive tool that evaluates research proven factors related to recidivism. Just so happens there are a lot of other dynamic factors that can only be evaluated at the time of the test…. future predictions is at best, educated guess-work, never a certainty. Testing aside, the bottom line is that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior.

You’re right about one…. Nearly every day of his administration has been “torture” for me.

Don’t agree with this parent’s strategy. Corporal punishment is okay, as long as it used with very young children in order to get their attention swiftly and when addressing something dangerous, e.g., child playing with the stove, running out in the street w/o stopping/looking. Otherwise, with kids of all ages, talking is best… firm, succinct directives w/o over-explanation as to why you are directing it. The other key is consistency, and if ideally both parents are present, they are united in rules & discipline. Removal of privileges is the best punishment. Also, parenting is not about being your child’s best friend or their dictator… even the best behaved children will test limits and your patience. Expect it, prepare for it, and model the behavior you want to see in them.
Read the story about "Gifted hands, The Ben Carson Story". He was raised by an uneducated, but wise young single mother. She was determined that her boys get educated and limited T.V. and required them to read library books and write book reports each week. From failing in early elementary school, Dr. Ben became top student in his graduating class, and went on to become head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the first to be able to separate co-joined twins successfully. It has to start early on and parents need to encourage and build opportunities for them to succeed. Limit T.V. and video games and encourage books. Parents need to exercise control in their children's' lives early on and there will not be problems. Loving control (structure) and expectations will lead to success. Simple, but I sure don't see it in today's culture.

She should just change her name to “Halloween” because both her looks and ideas are soooooo scary!

News Flash: Antibiotics don’t work for viruses. It seems this stems from an ignorant American public who don’t know this, doctors who over-prescribe the antibiotics, and Americans who do know but take them anyway in order to ward off an infection that may never have occurred in the first place. Isn’t it ironic that our own paranoia about being deathly sick leads us to behavior that ultimately can kill us?
Also, just as funny is how doctors can look at your throat and say "You've got a virus." but they don't take a throat culture to make sure. Doctors cannot SEE viruses or bacteria! My kid came down with bacterial pneumonia after a doctor did that and said it was a virus.
