WITHOUT HESITATION, WITHOUT WORDS OF ANY KIND, THE STRANGER SLIPS HIS HAND INTO HER PANTIES AND CUPS HER SEX. JANE HASN'T HAD A MAN DO THAT IN SUCH A LONG TIME AND SHE REALIZES HOW MUCH SHE LOVED IT... LOVES IT. WITH HIS FIRST AND THIRD FINGER HE PARTS HER LABIA AND THEN THERE IS AN ENDLESS PAUSE BEFORE SHE FEELS THE MIDDLE FINGER EXPLORE HER LIPS, HER HOLES... SHE GASPS AND CLOSES HER EYES JUST AS THE WORDS, "DAMMIT, JANE, YOU'RE SCARING ME..." LIGHT UP ON THE BLUE-GREY SCREEN... "I'M SCARING ME TOO," THINKS JANE AS SHE FEELS THE MAN'S FINGERS OPEN HER SWIMMING JADE GATE. "THANK GOODNESS I SHAVED," JANE THOUGHT SELF-CONSCIOUSLY...

On a cold November night in Times Square, Officer Lawrence DePrimo encountered an older, barefooted homeless man. The officer disappeared for a moment, then returned with a new pair of boots, and knelt to help the man put them on.
The act of kindness would have gone unnoticed and mostly forgotten, had it not been for a tourist from Arizona.
Her snapshot was taken with her cellphone on a Tuesday and posted to the New York Police Departmentís official Facebook page.
By Wednesday evening, the post had been viewed 1.6 million times and more than 16,000 comments.

For all you progressive secularists out there, please take note the government did not put shoes on that man's feet. It was rather a random act of kindness and it is up to each and everyone of us to look after each other.
God bless that policeman.

Is Fox Even Helping the Republicans Anymore?

Because Fox generally reports news based on partisan talking points and ideological certainty rather than focusing on pesky things like facts, information and events, it has, in the past, been effective in encouraging misperceptions about President Obama's background, nurturing the growth and development of the Tea Party movement and covering economic policy by referring to any spending by the government as socialism. These things have helped mobilize and misinform the right wing base of the Republican Party. Similarly, during the Bush administration, Fox helped increase support for the Gulf War by repeating White House positions on weapons of mass destruction, almost without question.

Over the last several years, this has been very helpful to the Republican Party, but during 2012, particularly in recent months, this has begun to change. Fox has now become a problem for the Republican Party because it keeps a far right base mobilized and angry making it hard for the party to move to the center, or increase its appeal as it must do to remain electorally competitive. For example, Bill O'Reilly's explanation of why the Obama was reelected may, in fact, resonate, with the older and heavily white viewership of Fox, but it is precisely the wrong public message and messenger for the Party.

Moreover, while Fox helps the Republican Party when it slants its news coverage to the right, it damages the Party when its news coverage becomes too shoddy. A network that cannot get election night right because one of its star pundits simply refuses to accept defeat offers very little reason for potential viewers to watch it. Similarly a network whose pundits are so off in their election predictions will ultimately marginalize itself completely, as Fox is beginning to do.

One of the bigger challenges facing the Republican Party is that they are perceived as the, to phrase it nicely, less smart of the two major parties. The anti-science perspective, unwillingness to speak out against absurd sounding conspiracy theories, and even the attacks on Nate Silver, presumably because Silver did somewhat sophisticated math, have contributed to this and are damaging the party. It is no coincidence that the Obama campaign had a more sophisticated targeting and turnout operation and better statistical modeling. A party that refuses to take a firm stand in support of evolution or recognizing climate change is not going to draw too many people with advanced statistical training as advisors and consultants.

Fox contributes to that environment by creating a climate where partisan rantings of people like Dick Morris are indulged while criticism by serious people like Tom Ricks is shut down and attacked. There is no inevitable link between conservatism and stupidity, but one could be forgiven for coming to that conclusion while watching Fox News. As it is currently constructed, Fox News is going to bring in almost no swing voters in the coming years. It will more likely continue to repel them through poor analysis and rants that strike the precise tone the party should be trying to avoid.

YOU'RE JUST NOT CLEVER ENOUGH, THAT'S WHY IT FALLS APART SO BADLY. YOU CAN'T BE ME OR HIM OR HER JUST BECAUSE YOU DESPERATELY WANT TO BE... IT TAKES SKILLS. YOU NEED TO PRACTICE... TAKE THE WORD, "DESPERATELY" ABOVE. AT FIRST GLANCE IT SEEMS... SECONDARY. BUT THE MORE YOU LOOK AT IT THE MORE YOU REALIZE IT'S THERE TO HUMILIATE YOU FURTHER. YOU DON'T HAVE THAT KIND OF COMMAND OF LANGUAGE, YOU'RE KIND OF AT THE, "THOSE PIGGIES NEED DIRT," LEVEL. IT'S JUST LIKE WHEN YOU WERE STILL MARRIED: "WHAT'S SHE GOT THAT I DON'T HAVE???"
