My point is a dysfunctional family is culturally accepted by the liberal left, regardless of costs to society.

Murdoch grabbed onto the popularity of The National Enquirer in launching Fox News. He recognized the dumbing down of America and it's appetite for sleaze. He took it from there by creating a product he knew would appeal to the "dumazzz" segment of society.

In 1998, "In response to charges that his papers debase culture and intrude into privacy, he almost concedes. "Had we tended to sensationalise some [stories]? Yes. I think so. Sometimes too much I would agree. But ... everyone does it, whether they are making chewing gum or television sets, the idea is to sell as many as possible."

And, there you have it, all Murdoch cares about is profits. Sensationalism sells.

Shutdown takeaway: the US wants a fair society, not 'defund Obamacare' crazy
As Obama looks for a budget deal to forestall another shutdown, he should know a majority of Americans back economic justice
The rest of the world must have been fascinated at the spectacle that was the US government shutdown and threat of default on our public debt. Here is a country that not only has no public debt problem, but can pay any foreign creditors in its own currency – that is, money that our central bank creates. Yet, even this "exorbitant privilege" – as Barry Eichengreen titled his book about the dollar being the center of the international financial system – was not enough to assure the world that Republicans would not cause disruption by attempting the impossible.
As expected, the Republicans were defeated and got nothing for their efforts other than a record low approval rating. The New Yorker's satirist Andy Borowitz summed up their "noble cause" with a fictional quote from Ted Cruz:
The dream of keeping poor people from seeing a doctor must never die.
The outcome was never much in doubt. The Tea Party and its friends do not control the majority of the Congress, nor could anyone expect House majority leader John Boehner to defy the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, and the rest of America's most powerful business lobbies after they made it clear they would not stomach even a temporary, technical default on US Treasury obligations. Indeed, it is testimony to the extremists' base of support within their party – and their own stubbornness – that they made it as far as they did.
If only the Democratic leadership had this kind of pressure to respond to its voters – including the fear of losing primary elections that plagues so many Republicans – now, there would be some democracy. This is because the majority of Democratic voters, unlike the Tea Party and its allies, have demands that are in line with the majority of the country.

Explain to us how, because you cannot control your kids, that you have to beat them?
How about you explain to us how, you can completely control an individual entity, equip with a brain capable of thinking &, making childish decisions on it's own. You can't &, a child makes childish mistakes. Some of which is too late to take back or, you talk won't alleviate the consequences. Had you taught your child the lesson of consequences &, repercussions for their acts, they could've escaped them. Not all children are the same &, not all courses of teaching is the same. Along with the environment! The reason your kids probably know about guns is because you taught them. My kids know about the because, they've heard them just blocks away. I knew about them because I grew up in the projects &, I heard them &, bought them at 12 yrs old. Like I said, y'all think because, it's not the white way, it's not the right way. When in fact you're wrong because, the upbringing off my kids &, I are totally different than your kids & yours.

Kansas Supreme Court indefinitely suspends license of former Attorney General who speciously prosecuted Planned Parenthood and George Tiller

In addition to the violations directly related to actions falling within the purview of his job, the court also found that Kline’s appearance on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor” during the host’s “Tiller the Baby Killer” campaign to discuss his ongoing investigation of George Tiller constituted official misconduct.

Central Ohio Republican Congressman Pat Tiberi says he was frustrated by the House Republican leadership strategy used in the recent government shutdown fight.

"They believe we were Florida A&M going against Ohio State on a football Saturday with this strategy," said Tiberi. "A strategy where you can't win in the end."

The 76-0 Buckeyes romp over Florida A&M earlier this season is the analogy Tiberi uses to describe the House GOP strategy against Pres. Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate.

"I think there is a majority of us in the House now that believe the strategy was wrong, but there wasn't at the beginning," said Tiberi.

As to who was responsible for directing the GOP tactics during the shutdown, Tiberi points to Senator Ted Cruz, who had insisted on defunding Obamacare - despite the GOP being a minority in the U.S. Senate.

"My question to Senator Cruz, if he were sitting right here, would be 'If 46 Republicans can stand together and win, how does that add up to 67?’ It doesn't," said Tiberi. "My 10-year-old daughter knows you can't defund Obamacare because you have to have 67 votes to override a veto by a president named Obama."

no.

How much liability insurance am I required to have?

California requires that drivers and vehicle owners carry the following minimum monetary limits:
•$15,000 for injury or death of 1 person per accident
•$30,000 for injury or death of 2 or more persons per accident
•$5,000 for any property damage per accident

Evidence of financial responsibility must be carried at all times in the vehicle. Most Californians maintain financial responsibility through insurance companies, which provide the policy holder with an identification card to be used as evidence of coverage. The card must state the insurance company's name and address, the period of coverage, and policy number.

Persons operating a vehicle in this state who are unlicensed or have an invalid California or out-of-state driver license are subject to the same financial responsibility laws as valid California licensed drivers.
