"Nasty, Petty, And Ill-Informed": Ben Carson's Johns Hopkins Colleague Responds To His Marriage Equality Attack

Johns Hopkins Sexuality Studies Co-Director Compares Carson To Defenders Of Dreyfus Affair

The co-director of Johns Hopkins University's sexuality studies program is speaking out against his colleague Dr. Ben Carson's recent comments comparing supporters of marriage equality to members of NAMBLA and practitioners of bestiality.

"I don't think most people at Hopkins think what he says on this subject matters," Professor Todd Shepard, co-director of the university's Program for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, said in a statement to Media Matters. "They make him look nasty, petty, and ill-informed. It doesn't tell us anything about his amazing abilities as a surgeon. It does remind us, however, that those abilities do not mean we should listen to what he says in any other domain."

Overseeing cyber crimes should be designated to local law enforcement. Not the federal government. If that's what Rockefeller is proposing, I totally disagree.
Right now this minute there are thousands of local law enforcement officers across the nation online looking for cyber criminals, mostly sex offenders but also scam artists, cyber stalkers and spammers.

Carson's venture into gaffeland Tuesday indicates that his career in politics might be over before it even began — and demonstrates the danger Republicans face when they fall in love with a "candidate" who has yet to be vetted by a single voter.

I've experienced the same. Visit your local FBI office. If you have something useful, they can be helpful.

I've tried to have a cyber crime investigated. Local law enforcement are clueless how to proceed. If you go to the your local law enforcement with an IP address out of their jurisdiction, they will tell you the crime was committed outside their jurisdiction, if you call the PD where the Ip was registered, they will tell you it's your local law enforcements problem. No one wants to deal with it.

More logic from the left...

Lay off air traffic controllers and other essential workers, but keep funding sicko sex-ed for kindergarten children.

*****

Beside the multi-million dollar vacations, the huge payoffs to the Muslim Brotherhood and other wasteful spending, the Obama administration still maintains that closing the White House to kids headed to our nation's capitol on Spring Break this year is the kind of pain made necessary by the sequestration vote.

This is not your grandmother’s sex education about how things work and what can go “wrong.” In fact, the exact opposite is the essence of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP): Obamacare funnels $75 million annually into PREP, which must be used exclusively for Planned Parenthood-style “comprehensive” sex ed programs where no type of sex is wrong and the only sexual behavior PP considers “unsafe” is becoming pregnant.

Did My Taxes Go Up? I Hadn’t Noticed.

This year’s tax increases were supposed to destroy the country and send Americans to the bread lines. That didn’t happen. In fact, the economy is pretty damn happy.

What if they threw a big tax hike, and nobody noticed?

On January 1, a new set of allegedly confidence-killing, consumption-destroying, investment-unfriendly taxes hit the economy. The payroll tax rose from 4.2 percent to 6.2 percent on the first $113,700 of income. The top marginal rate rose from 36 percent to 39.6 percent for families with adjusted gross income above $450,000. Taxes on capital gains and dividends for those same top earners rose from 15 percent to 20 percent. Meanwhile, the Affordable Care Act levied an additional 3.8 percent tax on investments, and an additional .9 percent Medicare payroll tax on families with adjusted gross income of more than $250,000.

The notion was that putting these taxes on the rich and middle-class, taxing income and investments, at a time when the economy was going at a painfully slow rate, would cause people to stop spending and investing, go Galt, and send the economy into a recession. To read the Wall Street Journal editorial page, you would have thought Hugo Chávez had been named to succeed Barack Obama.

But three months into this new experiment in extremely mild socialism, it seems like Americans are generally shrugging off the tax increases. A survey released this week by Bankrate.com found that “more than half of working Americans either haven’t noticed (48 percent) or have been unaffected by (7 percent) the January 1 expiration of the payroll tax cut.” Some 30 percent said they’ve reduced spending, while 11 percent are saving less as a result. Bankrate.com analyst Greg McBride noted that “the lowest-income households were the least likely to have cut back on spending and the most likely not to have noticed the change in the payroll tax.”

Of course, surveys measure feelings and intentions, not actual activity. But pretty much every consumer indicator has continued to tick up through the first few months of 2013—all in the face of higher taxes. Home sales and auto sales have risen smartly in the first two months of the year. Overall retail sales in January and February were up 4.3 percent from the first two months of 2012. The ICSC/Goldman Sachs index of chain-store sales has been chugging along.

Compared to O'Reilly's disgusting commentary, Maher's a saint!!

John Boehner On Don Young Racial Slur:'There's No Excuse'

"Multiple Republicans strongly condemned Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) on Friday for his use of the slur "wetbacks" to refer to Latino farm workers, with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) issuing statements rebuking the congressman's use of the term.

"Congressman Young’s remarks were offensive and beneath the dignity of the office he holds," Boehner said. "I don’t care why he said it -- there’s no excuse and it warrants an immediate apology."

Cornyn issued a similar comment.

"Migrant workers come to America looking for opportunity and a way to provide a better life for their families," Cornyn said. "They do not come to this country to hear ethnic slurs and derogatory language from elected officials. The comments used by Rep. Young do nothing to elevate our party, political discourse or the millions who come here looking for economic opportunity."

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Young's words "emphatically do not represent the beliefs of the Republican Party."

Young made the remark on Thursday during a radio interview with KRBD-FM when speaking about the agricultural industry.

"My father had a ranch; we used to have 50-60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes," Young said. "It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. It’s all done by machine."

He offered an apology of sorts later, saying the term was used commonly in his youth. "I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays and I meant no disrespect," he said."

I wondeer what President Obama is thinking about the rising tensions with North Korea. We couldn't have a better president in the drivers seat of this escalating situation. I believe he definetly wont nuke them but if they continue to push, he would have our military go in and take their country. He needs to play this by the books though and have a U.N. tribunal deal with Kim Jong Un. It would allow us to save face after defeating them. I really don't want the situation to turn into one in which we would have to fight them house to house, which is the worst kind of fighting, its too up close and in your face.
