“The subject of “The Desperate Cry of America’s Boys” is a difficult one. To point out that boys need their fathers is to shine a spotlight on divorce and single mothers; and that is, admittedly, uncomfortable. But there’s no way to address fatherlessness comfortably.

The fact is, divorce and family breakdown—which, to answer my emailer’s question, is the root of fatherlessness—is catastrophic for children. There’s more than one reason why, but an obvious one is that in the majority of cases, divorce separates children from their fathers.


This is destructive to both boys and girls, but each sex suffers differently. Girls who grow up deprived of their father are more likely to become depressed, more likely to self-harm, and more likely to be promiscuous. But they still have their mothers, with whom they clearly identify. Boys do not have a comparable identification and thus suffer more from father absence. They also tend to act out in a manner that’s harmful to others, which girls typically do not.

The root of fatherlessness rests in two things: our culture’s dismissal of men as valuable human beings who have something unique to offer; and its dismissal of marriage as an institution that’s crucial to the health and well-being of children.”

No Joey, she was just a shitty candidate, if it wasn't for the polls stacking the deck, you would have seen she was always behind in the polls from day one. Comey had nothing to do with it.


She was a bad candidate, no doubt about it. And she should have been so far ahead that Comey's statement would have made no difference.

But, the fact is that the FBI helped Trump tremendously. Polls show it conclusively.

Comey was covering his ass as a long time bureaucrat. He knew Strzonk and McCabe tainted things (one of them rewrote the Comey Memo removing "Grossly negligent" and replacing it with "Careless" which is not a legal term) and by reopening the case, he brought himself an insurance policy of his own.

Hillary was already suspect in the minds of many long before the reopening of her gross and willful negligence in handling State Department emails.

Yet she was still "Leading the Polls!" and Obama was reminding Americans that when (not if) Trump lost, he shouldn't whinge about rigged elections. Then the Democrats lost and started whinging about rigged elections themselves.

Once again, you try to tell us what Dems think or what Dems said. And once again, you are wrong.

The only person talking about "rigged" elections was Trump even after he won. Trump is the person who claimed to have won the popular vote. Trump is the one who claimed widespread voter fraud with no evidence. Trump is the one who pretended to start a voter fraud commission.

Clinton did none of those things and said nothing of a rigged election. Dems said only that Comey exhibited poor judgment and should not have written the letter so close to the election.

Respondents to the poll feel mental illness plays a bigger part of the issue. Imagine that!


If we could only regulate mental illness, we can't so guess it's time to take the guns away, I mean really, what else can we do?


We have to keep AR-15's away from mentally ill people, for the same reason we keep broken glass away from a baby.
Either we figure out how to keep mentally ill people from getting their hands on these guns, or we completely ban the sale of most types of guns.
What will it be?

Ahh geeze..

Using Huff Post and Nate Silver as references for polls....

The crazy, it never ends.

You can't regulate mental illness? Why not?

Aren't there people around the mentally deranged that can see what's going on? That certainly was the case with the Florida shooter, but everyone who knew there were issues just ignored them, including law enforcement.

So your solution is to take the guns away from the other legal owners who don't have any issues?

What if gun sellers were required to access medical records. Criminal records, and felonies too. Guns should not be sold to any of these people.

Wait, what have been hearing for the past 14+ months?

"Wahhhh, Russia rigged the election"

This is the Democratic Majority Leader Today

Asking for $300 million dollars to fight Russian Election Tampering.

Here's Obama just before the Election:
"I don't even know where to start. Of Course, the elections will not be rigged. What does that even mean? .... If Mr. Trump is suggesting this conspiracy theory, which is being propagated..."

Gimme a break with the "Stop putting words in the Democrats' mouths" Take it up with Pelosi.

Another major problem is state laws are all different for everything from gun sales to drugs to mental health laws. If you don’t standardize laws nationally... people can drive an hour outside their state and buy whatever they want and bring it back into their state. 40% of all guns in Chicago were purchased in Indiana.

I believe the word dejuer is "influenced". Influence via $45k of FB ads is somehow considered treason, while $1.5 billion and a constant ass licking by CNN is just called the 5 o'clock news.

Every hear of HIPAA? Do you want every gun store clerk in the country knowing you're taking Viagra as they look through your records?

With that said, that question is one of the questions on the 4473. Go look at the form.

Strategist says

They're not.

That information is in the FBI database when a 4473 is processed and the disqualifying information denies the purchase.

Please stop with this craziness and do some factual research.

The real culprit behind Florida school shooting


The real culprit?

THERE WAS NO ARMED SECURITY IN PLACE TO PROTECT THE CHILDREN.

Think of this:

There is armed security at NBA games.

There is armed security at NFL games.

There is armed security at MLB games

There is armed security at Jewelry stores.

There is armed security at Banks.

There is armed security at Airports.

There is armed security at major concerts and arenas.

There is armed security protecting Hollywood stars.

There is armed security protecting Politicians.

There is armed security at NASCAR tracks.

There is armed security at major Train stations.

BUT, There is NO armed security at Schools. The Liberals want schools to be Soft Targets, without any protection.

Can any Democrat of gun hater here explain why the lives of all those people I just listed are MORE important than the lives of CHILDREN?

Anyone?

You had a facility with 3100 students, plus at least a hundred or so faculty and staff.

Name me a campus/facility/industrial park/base/etc. with 3100+ personnel that doesn't have full time, dedicated security and at least a gatehouse guard, if not a guard at each building, and/or a cardswipe/badge reader.

People pooh pooh this because it's self-evident when you consider the size of the facility and total lack of just one full time security person whose job it is to control entry and egress. What good is a ban list if not a soul is there to prevent banned people from entering the complex?

It wasn't a "Shooting" it was a Mass Homicide, the survivors weren't just shot, they were meant to be Killed.
Stop making perpetrators out of the innocent, lawful gun owners are the bad guys here, the Liberals that mis-categorize Crime Stats so they can get funding, or make their region look less crime riddled than it really is. To call Gang Violence a Mass Shooting is considered racist.
To Call a car bomber, or Floor kisser that drives over a parade crowd a Terrorist the bleeding heart Liberals jump up to their defense.
It's all Mass Homicide and they all deserve the chair, and a strong warning sent to what ever organization they profess to belong to.
That message should be "You're Next!".

Deflate and Defeat these Pinhead Lbieral idiots don't even provide them the fat to chew on. It's not a Mass Shooting it's a Mass Homicide.
