Posted in Policy & Legislation

Theothermccain.com 10/8/2014

"... Sexual assault is a crime. Rape is not a school disciplinary infraction, and the attempt by universities to set up a pseudo-judicial system to deal with accusations of sexual assault was always a dubious endeavor. What college administrators have done, in their effort to appease feminists, is to establish phony “courts” where people can be “convicted” of very serious crimes without the due process rights guaranteed under the Constitution. ..."

California’s Radical College-Sex-Law Experiment

Posted in Sexual Abuse

Nymag.com 10/8/2014

"... Combining advances in science, technology and surgical techniques, a more tailored treatment is exactly what doctors can now offer patients. "Taking it to the molecular level or the genomic level, it helps us in understanding which kind of a targeted therapy will work in one patient versus the other patient—who will be a better candidate for radiation.

"... “It is time to resolve our ambivalence and contradictory ideas about fathers’ and mothers’ roles in their children’s lives. If we value Dad reading Goodnight Moon to his toddler and soothing his fretful baby at 3 a.m. while the parents are living together, why withdraw our support and deprive the child of these expressions of fatherly love just because the parents no longer live together, or just because the sun has gone down.” ..."
