Victim data were analyzed by relationship to their perpetrators. Nearly 39 percent (38.7%) of victims were maltreated by their mother acting alone (figure 3–6). Nearly 18 percent (17.9%) of victims were maltreated by their father acting alone. Nearly 17 percent (16.8%) were maltreated by both parents.

The same report found that 27.1% of child homicides nationwide were committed by a mother acting alone while 16.3% were committed by a father acting alone.

The figures for all child maltreatment over the years are these:

2006: Mother acting alone – 39.9%; Father acting alone – 17.6%
2005: MAA – 40.4%; FAA – 18.3%
2004: MAA – 38.8%; FAA – 18.3%
2003: MAA – 40.8%; FAA – 18.8%
2002: MAA – 40.3%; FAA – 19.1%
2001: MAA – 40.5%; FAA – 19.3%
2000; MAA – 40.0%; FAA – 16.6%

In other words, for none of those years was child abuse by a mother less than twice that of a father.

You are truly ignorant. Let's start with the post:
Hitler:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Sought revenge for a lost war.
Democrats:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Seek revenge for losing the Cold War.
Tell us what is inaccurate in the above comparison.
... and your responses:
"1. Comparing one man from decades ago in a foreign country to a modern-day American political party."
Every person who every studied philosophy writen in a foreign country during a different era disagrees with you. The very reason philosophy is important is because it is comprised of universal truths about humans.
You are an idiot to not realise this obviously obvious fact.
"2. Modern-day Dems are not "social radicals."
Really.... please explain the Marxist principles being forced onto the population by the Democrats. Please explain why we pay people to not do the work the illegal aliens here are doing. Please explain the dramatic change in family values here since the so-called "progressives" that control the Democrats took control of the Democratic Party. What is the illegitimacy rate among the black population today? What was it 40 years ago? And, what the f**k do you use for information to draw your conclusions?
"3. Modern-day Dems are not "consumed with racial hatred." The opposite of that, in fact."
And that explains the so-called "new" black panthers, the NAACP, the demise of the SCLC, Jeremiah Wright, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, etc., etc., etc.
"4. Dems are not looking for "revenge" in regard to the Cold War."
So, putting all that effort into sabotage of the United States during the Cold War: sabotaging the South Vietnamese and condemning them to the statistically worst mass murder in the history of civilization and a life of poverty and deprivation while everyone else in the world achieved a middle-class living standard, and getting stomped by Ronald Reagan who crushed the Democrats' attempt to sabotage the United States in Central American front of the Cold War, an attempt to repeat the Democrats' sabotage of Vietnam, and then losing the Cold War was just another day for the Democratic Party?
Do you really think you're talking to a room full of idiots?
"5. We didn't "lose" the Cold War, anyway."
The history I recall was the communists lost the Cold War. I also recall the Democrats joining the communists and sabotaging the United States during the Cold War. In fact, the Cold War began with the most prominent Democrat in the country aside from the sitting president being convicted while spying for the Soviet Union. Then we have John Kerry lying his ass off every chance he gets in front of congress in support of the communists during the Cold War.
You really think you're talking to a room full of ignorant idiots, right?
The Democrats joined the communists during the Cold War.
Reagan beat you and won the Cold War.
And you don't feel anything from that....
How about you post here something about how great Reagan's victory in the Cold War was.
... can't do that, can you? That's because you can't quite accept that your side lost the Cold War. You are the same as those southerners that can't accept the fact that the South lost the Civil War.
Here's the comparison again:
Hitler:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Sought revenge for a lost war.
Democrats:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Seek revenge for losing the Cold War.

Not really. Women were doing it for years at home. Even when and where illegal they still do it. Laws only provide punishment for a man made law, they do nothing for stopping the action. Murder is illegal yet committed daily. Speeding is illegal but show just one driver who has never broken that law. Punishment only applies to those caught, brought to trial, and found guilty, all others really don't count now do they. Roe vs Wade does not make the choice, it just says there is no law against it.

I don't intend to keep going round and round with you. i've answered you once, and your "replies" are hogwash. You simply reiterate your previous claims at greater length without offering any sort of proof. Your first reply points out your own inetptitude:

Me:[You are] "Comparing one man from decades ago in a foreign country to a modern-day American political party."

You: "Every person who every studied philosophy writen in a foreign country during a different era disagrees with you. The very reason philosophy is important is because it is comprised of universal truths about humans.
You are an idiot to not realise this obviously obvious fact."

You miss my obvious point, that you were comparing apples to oranges when you compared Hitler to a modern-day PARTY. A PARTY is not a "political genius." Democrats are not "political geniuses." Democrats are not in any way like HITLER. See? That's what I'm saying. I'm not sayig that philosophy is unimportant or that you can't use it to compare different eras.

When you can't comprehend the question, you can't answer...and end up calling me an "idiot" because that's the real limit of your debating abilities.

Dismissed.

The far right
Political ....
Social radical
Consumed with racial hatred
sought revenge for lost elections

2.) Social radical. "Legitimate rape" & " A war on contraception" Radical. Complete departures from the will of the people. Stands so radical that they Re-elected the President. My humble opinion is those social issues, along with a few other bits of bombast swung enough voters to the President to cover the spread.

3.) Consumed with racial hatred...The easier charge to prove. All you have to do is listen to that 'Kenyan' bullsquat. The racism just oozes from that stuff.

4) Sought revenge for lost elections...self evident

Dismissed.
You are not dismissed yet, dunce.
It is your subjective judgement that there is no valid comparison between Hitler and the Democrats. Subjectivity has no standing. The rationale you used was that Hitler was in a different country during a different time. I countered that argument with the basis for philosophy being a critical component of man's ability to assimilate historic events into a modern day analogue.
Your argument was no different than saying history is of no significance, and humans change their characteristics every generation, which means humans mutate radically with every generation. That is obviously not true. Humans haven't changed instinct since before recorded history.
Therefore, those philosophies written as far back as when the first inscriptions were carved in stone in Egypt are as true for humans today as they were when they were carved.
Humans are humans, the same humans they were more than ten thousand years ago.
Thus, your contention that Hitler belonged to a different species, subject to different instincts and reacting differently to learned behavior is absolutely wrong.
If you don't want to be compared to Hitler, don't do the same goddam things.
Here's the comparison again:
Hitler:
Political genuis
Consumed with racial hatred
Sought revenge for a lost war
Democrats
Political genuis
Consumed with racial hatred
Seek revenge for losing the Cold War
What kind of political genuis does it take to build a political party on treason and indoctrinating the population with lies, and still not only survive, but win elections?
The same type of political genuis that brought Hitler to the world's stage of history.
Should we begin a discussion of that treason and system of lies the country was indoctrinated with?
Let's start with Alger Hiss, and see where that discussion leads us.
Now, you are dismissed, dunce.
And, please change your name. It's embarrassing to read something like "professor" in front of your obviously ignorant diatribe.
