1/ While doing some research on pedophilia in response to discussions on the PA Catholic Church abuse scandal [yes, I do research sometimes rather than just mouthing off whatever pops into my head], I came across two excellent resources about causes and treatments for pedophilia.
2/ The first is a BBC program that came out 2 years ago after Britain released a massive, detailed report on the sexual abuse of children, The Truth About Child Sex Abuse
which, among other things, discusses new neurological research about pedophilia...

Very useful for responding to the "innocent until proven guilty" charge GOPPERS use in attempts to discredit those who say Moore is guilty. Saves you a bit of typing.
The full phrase, "innocent until proven guilty in a court of law," is a legal construct that applies to judges and juries, who must be impartial to warrant due process.

Don't you know that trump wants to take away your mortgage tax deduction to help pay for massive tax cuts for the wealthy? And you're gonna lose a whole lot more of your deductions bc the wealthiest people in this country are demanding that @GOP pay them back for their donations.
It's a legal form of bribery. Blackmail, too.
If you're not a member of the 1% you will soon be worse off than now. Very. Much. Worse.

Does it have to be either/or?
Yes, she made a mistake. She was a naive young college woman. They make mistakes, sometimes huge ones.
Did she deserve to be SLUT SHAMED all over the media for them?
Saying she did wrong is one thing. But no woman deserves that intense ugliness.
I have reasons for understanding the dynamics involved. Thru out my young adulthood I became enamored of a number of my professors--all of them married. So was I. But underneath it all was my own tragedy I wasn't even aware of myself at the time.
Please wait until I finish.

Sorry. I don't agree w/you that HRC avoided labor, working class. She had plenty in her platform for them, &spoke abt it, but media ignored
And frankly this "identity politics" phrase is code for "let's not talk abt racism bc it scares white (esp white male) voters."

Morning wake up thought...
Question nobody is asking:
How do we know Russian interference began only after trump won the GOP nomination?
It is highly unlikely that Putin waited until then to jump in.
It is far more likely that they engineered trump's nomination as well.

1/ This will be an on-going thread to remind people what actually happens when nuclear bombs are used as weapons rather than a deterrent.
2/ I feel a special obligation 2do this.
I was born in Los Alamos, NM on the 3rd anniversary of Nagasaki. My dad helped develop the H-bomb
