  • DC to Crack Down on "Play Dates" [semi-satire]

    The practice of parents with similarly aged children meeting up for play dates is in the cross hairs of the DC bureaucracy. State Superintendent of Education Hanseul Kang has charged that these informal arrangements "are an illegal intrusion on turf reserved for my department. There are public institutions targeting young children and their development. Every hour wasted at some play group run by unqualified parents is an hour that could have been spent in a program run by professionals. It doesn't matter that the play dates are voluntary or that participation seemingly hurts no one. We will levy fines or...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...

    The site I listed really does not have the answer I'm looking for but we got on this discussion at work. I understand the 14th amendment clause, 1866 dealing with the civil rights acts etc. The question I have is a person I work with is from Canada. While he was waiting for his citizenship he had 3 children. Then he received his citizenship. I argue that the intention to become a citizen has been started and in the works, therefore establishing "intent". My co-worker argues that his kids are not citizens and Trump's EO and the 14th amendment would...

    On September 9, Rudy Peters, the Republican running for Congress in the 15th District in California, was attacked by a knife-wielding man shouting, "F___ Trump". The attacker, Farzad Fazeli, an Iranian Clinton supporter, had previously posted, “Don Trump won’t clean his own house, so he’s too dirty to know right from wrong. Impeach/incarcerate him before more children die. P.S. complacency is worse than being the shooter.” The next month, Shane Mekeland, a Republican running for the Minnesota House of Representatives, suffered a concussion after being punched in the face at a restaurant. “You f____g people don't give a s___ about...

    THORNTON, Colorado, October 26, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Parents were shocked and angered to discover that an x-rated drag queen showed up to their children’s school last week as part of a career day event. Zack Sullivan, a 25-year-old man better known as drag queen "Jessica L'Whor," was invited by school administration to give a presentation on Oct. 19 to 11-13-year-old children at Rocky Top Middle School in suburban Denver, without parents' knowledge or consent. L'Whor has worked for x-rated "uncensored" venues, one which included allowing patrons paying the highest bid to "f*ck up the queens." “Parents are in an outrage...

    They are famous for taking care of the children of the rich and famous while wearing their iconic brown hats and white gloves. But two of the latest batch of ‘Norland nannies’ will buck that trend because they are the first men to come through the ranks in Norland College’s 126-year history. Liam Willett and Harry Pratt, both 21, are now expert ‘mannies’ and capable of keeping toddlers in check while whipping up dinner and providing entertainment. The college, based in Bath, frequently supplies nannies to the Royal Family, including Prince George’s minder Maria Borrallo, while Mick Jagger also employs...

    A Gates Foundation report warning that Africans are having too many kids prefaced more pointed anti-fertility remarks this week from France's president, Emmanuel Macron. The poorest people tend to have the highest birth rates, which threatens to reverse historic progress in reducing world poverty, says the world’s largest philanthropy in a recent report.“[D]ecades of stunning progress in the fight against poverty and disease may be on the verge of stalling,” write Bill and Melinda Gates in their foundation’s latest “Goalkeepers” report. “This is because the poorest parts of the world are growing faster than everywhere else; more babies are being...

    Iowa health officials confirmed Wednesday a second case of a rare condition that afflicts the nervous system, particularly the spinal cord. The condition is called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, which attacks the nervous system and can lead to arm or leg weakness and loss of muscle reflexes. It has received increased attention in recent weeks. Officials with the Iowa Department of Public Health said they are following the condition very closely and heeding warnings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    On the heels of the Kavanaugh hearings, some teachers have wondered aloud — via Twitter — how they should handle the contentious topic in their classrooms. While some teachers have no interest in touching the issue with a 10-foot pole, others may find it nearly impossible not to make mention of an event that consumed the nation for weeks. But we can learn a lot about how one educator in particular asked the Twitterverse for suggestions. “I’m a teacher, and I don’t know what I’m going to say to my students if Kavanaugh gets confirmed. Do I tell them that...

    Melania Trump is keen to make a difference in the lives of children around the world and noted as much during a speech at the 73rd U.N. General Assembly. In her remarks, she made direct mention of the good work being led by fellow first ladies Rebecca Akufo-Addo, Margaret Kenyatta and Gertrude Mutharika. First ladies, community activists and changemakers of all ages are moving the needle on important issues at local, national and regional levels. This work cannot be overlooked as Melania Trump travels to Ghana, Kenya, Malawi and Egypt. Trump cited a desire to replicate U.S. programs "that are...

    A presidential initiative called The “New Freedom Commission on Mental Health” has issued a report recommending forced mental health screening for every child in America, including preschool children. The goal is to promote the patently false idea that we have a nation of children with undiagnosed mental disorders crying out for treatment. One obvious beneficiary of the proposal is the pharmaceutical industry, which is eager to sell the psychotropic drugs that undoubtedly will be prescribed to millions of American schoolchildren under the new screening program. Of course a tiny minority of children suffer from legitimate mental illnesses, but the widespread...

    A British aid worker was killed Friday in a U.N. compound in the West Bank during a gunbattle between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen — the first senior U.N. official to die in over two years of fighting. The United Nations accused Israeli soldiers of preventing an ambulance from immediately reaching Iain Hook, a senior manager for UNRWA, the U.N. agency that helps Palestinian refugees. The Israeli army said he was evacuated from the U.N. compound in the Jenin refugee camp as soon as possible. The death occurred hours after Israel reoccupied the West Bank town of Bethlehem for the...

    In Sudbury, an older Labradoodle named Reuben has been dragging himself up three flights of stairs and plopping himself in front of Kerani Verma’s room — vacant since she left for the University of Delaware — and just waiting. Gracie, a Newton goldendoodle, has put herself on a hunger strike since sisters Rachel and Emma Brown left for post-grad life and Tufts. She spends her nights snoozing near their empty beds. As for Wyatt, a yellow Lab in West Roxbury, he’s been sitting at the base of the staircase, listening for the command he’s been hearing for years — “Go...

    Brent and Nicole Keryluke were killed on May 5th in a motorcycle accident leaving behind 3-year-old Liam and 6 year-old Arielle. Brent wanted to keep his 1973 Pontiac Parisienne for his son when he started driving. They're now being cared for by their grandparents. They didn’t want to part with the vehicle, but they didn't have a choice. They ended up taking it to an auction, where it was sold 3 times and donated back every time raising close to $100,000 for the family!
