How is it that so many of these brilliant entrepreneurs, innovators, and “leading experts”, can be so good at their work, but so bad at raising well-adjusted children? Is it necessary to invest so much of themselves in what they do, and so little in the most important aspect of their lives? We’ve seen this all to often. (Not to say that those less fortunate don’t also end up poor parents. It’s that these people lack the mitigating factors than those with far fewer resources.)
This is how brilliant, sometimes, works. My father had an IQ off the charts with exceptional mathematic skills. After serving in WWII, he was courted by Washington DC to work in espionage. He declined twice. He went on to marry and raise 3 kids, one of them is me. He was distant, quiet, remote and his conversations with me were about atoms, protons, the universe, etc. He was different and that is one reason these brilliant people do not necessarily make the best parents. They do their best, but don't even understand human relationship and that hampers their parenting. I still miss him.
Mooz: You had a weird upbringing. Tell us more. It could be a good short story, as it were.
Yes, this would even get under a Christian's skin, to have a stranger buried next to your wife where you are intending to be buried later. I would be outraged if this happened to me.

While your points have some merit, I would argue that in our current society any examples of both good parenting and responsible adults is a good thing. Consider all the example of bad parenting both our children and society as a whole is exposed to. Two points: In this day and age, the best tool for finding someone is the internet. While it may have resulted in undo notice, it got the job done. Secondly, all to many parents are too caught up in their own lives to even bother with parental responsibilities, or convinced that the best thing for their children is to never expose them to any sort of consequence for any action, or both. The fact that the mother went to the trouble to find the women, and thank her, rather than threatening to sue her for daring to judge her children is refreshing. So over all I would say to Mrs. Wood; Good on You Ma’am.

Vague Soul? Vague Logic might be more apropos.

Maybe, but I’ll put my money on; Looking for sites to build his Presidential Library
Chicago has already claimed the sight.
Right next to Al Capones empty vault.

I bet he was profiled – as the son of a famous actress. No surer way to get away with breaking the law in the greater Los Angeles area than have famous parents or be famous yourself.
Proof: Mackenzie Phillips, Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, Kiefer Sutherland, Lindsay Lohan, not to mention a myriad of Disney tots. Does anyone think that these people never had a run in with Police prior to their eventual arrests.

Ya, but a broken clock is right more often than “Sorta” Maher.

I saw a picture of you in one of the earlier stories here, does it get loud under that bridge during rush hour?
March 25, 2015 at 7:59pm
I wonder. Seeing that it won’t take all that long for his criminal behavior to be exposed once he leaves office (providing someone has the ba!!s to go after him) If that isn’t exactly what he has in mind. Imam Obama leader of the New Caliphate.

“…Pandering to his audience…”
Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle… (Oops, I forgot, in modern America such comparisons aren’t allowed by the language police.) So let’s call a…(dang! almost did it again) So lets hear a rounding chorus for the HYPOCRITES. The real difference between Cruz and sthese fools is that Cruz has a larger “audience.”

I can’t agree with you more, but does Ungroundable strike you as someone that can or would be able to successfully defend himself? A Randy Quaid movie character, or maybe either Joe Don Baker or Jack Black from “Mars Attacks.”

“She” is probably following Bruce Jenner’s P.R. plan for dealing with media scrutiny prior to gender re-assignment. Because we all know the Obama’s are the Kardashian’s of politics.

He’ll be charged, but the media will ignore the story, and in a few months the charges will be dropped at the behest of the White House. If for some reason the charges aren’t dropped, Obummer will pardon him on his way out of Office. As a Conservative hating Progressive he qualifies for some of the protected class benefits (Being a White Male limits them, but a pardon that essentially makes him indebted for life to Progressive ideals is available to all good fellow travelers.)
Can't pardon him if he's already stood before a firing squad, which is what he should get.
I just wrote a similar post.

Of course not, he’s a self-described hippy. He would get high in his mother’s basement, then go and protest something, somewhere. During which, he would scream profanity, defecate on a police car, and try to intimidate locale vendors into feeding him.
If you agree with what eve's mother says than it also applies to you. I think eve trapped herself in that statement as well.

And….. you almost hit the mark, not. You are fooling yourself if you think that is the case. It is impossible, in Islam’s case, to separate those two elements from each. To many Imams will refuse to give up Temporal or Religious power. Without a central authority that can weed out “heresies” and make those determinations stick. Or to chastise those that try to combine Temporal and Religious power bases, any reformation is dead before it starts. As to the Muslim religion not being the problem. I think you need to read up some, the dichotomy you are claiming exists, doesn’t. The basis of the problem is built into their religion, because that is what Muhamutt wanted, both Temporal and Religious control in one person, himself.

I hope that someday you will need a Police Officer to save your sorry life. And everyone of them will know you that your one of those people that anonymously derides them and wishes them dead. Maybe they’ll help, then again, maybe they’ll correctly come to the decision that your life isn’t worth one of theirs.
One of the points of the second amendment is not to need a police officer except to collect the body. Any other case,you call the fire department,rescue squad,or an ambulance.
ONLY a snivelling worthless brainwashed peon depends on a cop to save their life. REAL Americans stand up for themselves and their families..... A cop is only required to do the paperwork afterward.......

What a load of cr@p. Your reply to my post was its own example of a true “special type” of lie. Of course you have the right to a different point of view, I never said, or even implied, otherwise. What you don’t have, is a right to be free of the consequences of (or rebuttals to) those opinions. As to your vilification complex, drama queen much? Calling out liars, for being liars, isn’t vilification. It is, simply put, speaking truth to wanton stupidity.

“…what an utter failure your campaign is going to be.” Really, exactly how do you equate a Sen. Cruz campaign with Obama’s presidency?
