Just checkout "Cable New Viewers" and you will see in every age group Fox news has more viewers than any other outlet. These numbers apply to Baire, Shep, O'Reilly, Hannity and Greta. In most cases it is at least 2 times more viewers watching Fox News.

(Reuters)- Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood warns that a U.N. declaration on women's rights could destroy society by allowing a woman to travel, work and use contraception without her husband's approval and letting her control family spending.

The Islamist movement that backs President Mohamed Mursi gave 10 reasons why Muslim countries should "reject and condemn" the declaration, which the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women is racing to negotiate a consensus deal on by Friday.

The Brotherhood, whose Freedom and Justice Party propelled Mursi to power in June, posted the statement on its website, www.ikhwanweb.com , and the website of the party on Thursday.

Egypt has joined Iran, Russia and the Vatican - dubbed an "unholy alliance" by some diplomats - in threatening to derail the women's rights declaration by objecting to language on sexual, reproductive and gay rights.

The Muslim Brotherhood said the declaration would give "wives full rights to file legal complaints against husbands accusing them of rape or sexual harassment, obliging competent authorities to deal husbands punishments similar to those prescribed for raping or sexually harassing a stranger."

No. Laws can deter crime, if the law-abiding potential criminals give a shit about the law. The law prevents nothing. It defines, and sets punishment, for 'crime'.

What's your solution to crimes?
Narrow the definition of crime. Translation: Don't get caught. In a capitalist culture, that's the only 'solution', since morality equals what one can afford.

Cynical, I know.

I hope you find piece someday. In fact, I hope you find all of your missing pieces.

But, above all, I hope you can find your missing nacelles so you can climb into your little cowgirl spaceship and leave the f*kin' galaxy.

Most of your stuff is opinion pieces, op-eds, not straight news at all. Doubt if you know the difference.
