    I watch entirely too much of the discovery channel

    I understand your skepticism. It’s always good to question. There are, indeed, dogs trained to detect cancer. However, the reason doctors started testing dogs for this purpose in the first place was because of anecdotal evidence of dogs detecting cancer in people. They don’t know it’s cancer, all they know is that their human smells “wrong” in that spot, so they keep sniffing at it. After researching, they found that dogs COULD detect the cancer. The training just teaches them to specifically look for it, and to give a specific signal when they find it.

    Seriously? Be aggressive but if she says no back off is a how-to for rape? I am so sick of these man-haters trying to turn men into effeminate little pansies. I actually LIKE men.

    This story is joyous and sad at the same time. Obviously the mother did not get proper prenatal care, or she would have known she had HIV. There is no reason for that. There are plenty of programs to allow women who can not afford it to get prenatal care. Then, after doctors go to extraordinary lengths to save her baby from HIV, she just stopped giving the baby the meds. In my book that is child abuse. It is just so sad.

    There is a big difference between interacting with an animal and dragging a baby out of the water and letting your child sit on it. If a friendly dog comes up to you, do you sit on it?

    I would need to see some video before I really make a judgment. I was in the French Quarter once during Mardi Gras and a friend of mine broke her ankle BADLY. The ambulance came and some jerk was filming. He kept shoving the camera in her face and trying to get close in to film her dangling foot, and the EMTs kept having to go around him. The police told him to stop and he kept saying “freedom of the press! I have a right to film!” After one of the EMTs trying to carry the stretcher to the ambulance almost tripped over him (they won’t roll over cobblestones), one of my large male friends told him exactly where he was going to put the gentleman’s camera if he didn’t move along. Morons wanting to make a buck on Youtube regularly get in the way of rescue personnel, and then claim their freedom is being infringed upon. Forgive me if I have trouble feeling sorry for this voyeuristic little weasel.

    So by your logic, we shouldn’t judge those who have their daughters undergo female genital mutilation, or people who like little boys. Maybe we shouldn’t have laws at all. Who are we to judge someone else by our values? That is part of what makes a society you idiot… deciding on a shared set of values and definition of right and wrong.

    I have a guess why these “ladies” became upset. Decades ago when I worked at RL, some customers who were too cheap to pay for a beverage, but didn’t want to drink water would ask for extra lemons for their water. They would make you bring two whole lemons cut up, then they would take sugar packets and make themselves what we called “redneck lemonade” Generally people who drank redneck lemonade didn’t tip either. They would get mad if you tried to refill their water because it watered down their drink, but if a roaming manager sees that you aren’t keeping a table’s glasses full you get in trouble from them. No win.

    I wish there were more specifics on this case. In all the cases I have read where they claimed the child was taken solely on the basis of weight, it was actually because of dangerous medical complications resulting from their weight and the parents refusal to take steps to save their child’s life. If a parent refuses to treat a child’s type 1 diabetes, putting them at risk of death the public demands the child be saved. If it is obeisity related type 2 do we turn a blind eye? Most of these actions are initated by doctors treating children in hospitals. If she was starving her child would it be OK for her to move to excape the supervision of the court?

    As long as animals poop, and vegetables are grown in the ground, there will be some level of foodbourne illness. All we can do is try our best to minimize it.

    This wouldn’t only be about women in their 50′s. Some women go into premature menopause for a variety of reasons. They lose their fertility before they even hit their 40′s. Maybe it could also be applied to women who have lost their fertility to cancer treatments. I am always wary of arguments that say something is bad because someone could use it in a bad way. That’s like saying we shouldn’t get to have guns, because some people use them for crime.

    Acually, this woman is the best argument for free birth control I have ever seen. Someone PLEASE give her free birth control before she reproduces!!

    I wonder how long it will be before some bleeding-heart blames this on budget cuts that kept this poor victimized man suffering from mental health problems from getting the help he needed.

    Even if you thing homosexuality is a sin, I know lots of people who sin in lots of ways and I still love them. According to the bible sex out of wedlock is a sin. Do these people boycott every star who has children out of wedlock, or cohabitates? Ellen is never in your face about her sexuality. She doesn’t try to hide it, but doesn’t rub your nose in it. It is a relatively private matter for her, as it should be. she’s promoting products, not an agenda. She just seems like a genuinely nice person.

    More likely it is to keep morons from going out there, getting drunk and falling through the floor, then suing New York for millions of dollars.

    This isn’t a teacher just acting stupid. This is Social Justice Math, or Social Mathmatics. I read about this crap MONTHS ago, I thought Glenn was the one talking about it, but maybe not. No, I’m not some crazy conspiracy theorist. You can find sites all over the internet talking about this “wonderful” new tool for teaching children about social justice. It is plain and simple indoctrination.

    Well, as the mother of an autistic child, my answer to them would be that they needed a bit of what I refer to as “clam kick therapy.” I would be more than happy to provide them with this therapy free of charge.

    You will see a key difference here between Muslims and Jews. When a Muslim leader makes a crazy anti-christian statement, he gets cheered and/or his craziness is rationalized. Jews, on the other hand, will denounce this crazy mess.

    First off, RodentKing should change his moniker to SwineKing because he is a pig.

    Secondly, this has nothing to do with their race. This is all about a culture of entitlement and anger. Liberals have been telling our black population since birth that they need help to get anywhere in our society. They have been told that the “white man” is out to get them, and that they can never get ahead. They have been told by the racist ASSHATS that they are nothing but animals. They are starting to live down to everyone’s expectations. Big suprise. Conservatives are called racists, but we are really the only ones who know that our black population doesn’t NEED us to prop them up. We see their potential. Entitlements don’t prop them up, they hold them down!!

    Activists will protect these girls from consequences, saying this is the product of the cops having been bad to the black community for so long. *rolling my eyes* That won’t help them. What they need is a good boot in the ass to kick them onto the right path.

    I think it is great that they made this decision. I always appreciate it when jackasses make themselves obvious so I know who to avoid.
