Brandi Glanville may face a Real Housewives intervention

December 30, 2013

Has Brandi Glanville been hitting the bottle too hard lately?

Her fellow castmates on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seemed to think so on Monday night’s episode – and they’re planning an intervention.

During a dinner party shown on the latest episode, Glanville drank freely and set her tongue wagging on the other guests.

The Tea Party is growing in power

December 30, 2013

On November 5, Defending Main Street, one of the most prominent Republican establishment groups formed with the intent of destroying the Tea Party, will meet with wealthy Wall Street donors to begin building up its war chest before the 2014 midterm elections.
As the Associated Press notes, these Republicans believe the Tea Party has “overstayed their welcome in Washington and should be shown the door in next year’s congressional elections.” Now they are taking action to start raising the money they think will be needed to make that a reality.
“Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” former Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-OH), who is running the group aiming “to raise $8 million to fend off tea party challenges,” recently told National Journal. “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.”
Defending Main Street “plans to spend that money on center-right Republicans who face a triumvirate of deep-pocketed conservative groups–Heritage Action, Club for Growth and Freedom Works.”
LaTourette expressed his frustrations to the Associated Press, saying that “40, 42 House members have effectively denied the Republican Party the power of the majority” that it won in the 2010 election. He did not acknowledge that Republicans only won that majority on the strength of Tea Party voters who have now accused some of those elected officials of abandoning the intrests of those who elected them.
Yet, groups like Defending Main Street will seek to rid the party of the candidates whom Tea Party voters enthusiastically support for not being co-opted by the Washington establishment once they were elected.

Jon Gosselin slams ex-wife Kate for her fame hungry obsession

December 30, 2013

The former reality star slammed his ex-wife Kate Gosselin in a new interview with Philadelphia Magazine published Friday, Dec. 27, calling the mother of his eight children a handful of not-so-nice things.
“Everyone thinks I’m out to get Kate. I don’t give a f-ck!” the 36-year-old Jon & Kate Plus Eight star said, “What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she’s an a–hole, you know what I mean? I don’t have to—she’s proven that!”
He continued to criticize Kate’s use of social media, saying it conflicts with their children’s upbringing, “She tweets everything. To the world, all about my children. I think it’s disgusting and awful. They can’t even have a normal life.”

War on the Manly Man

December 30, 2013

Politically correct, inadequate education, along with the decline of America’s brawny industrial base, leaves many men with “no models of manhood,” she says. “Masculinity is just becoming something that is imitated from the movies. There’s nothing left. There’s no room for anything manly right now.” The only place you can hear what men really feel these days, she claims, is on sports radio. No surprise, she is an avid listener. The energy and enthusiasm “inspires me as a writer,” she says, adding: “If we had to go to war,” the callers “are the men that would save the nation.”

And men aren’t the only ones suffering from the decline of men. Women, particularly elite upper-middle-class women, have become “clones” condemned to “Pilates for the next 30 years,” Ms. Paglia says. “Our culture doesn’t allow women to know how to be womanly,” adding that online pornography is increasingly the only place where men and women in our sexless culture tap into “primal energy” in a way they can’t in real life.

Men are stupid idiots – Television tells me so

December 30, 2013

This is a piece about sexism against men. Yes, it exists and yes, we should take it seriously. Maybe you think I am joking? I understand. It’s not something people write about often. But maybe that’s because what I am about to describe is a bit subtle or easy to miss.
It’s where you’ll be watching television and see an ad, maybe, where a woman is rolling her eyes up to heaven at how stupid her husband is; or how he never listens to her; or he won’t ask for directions. When you look at them closely, the vast majority of ads depicting heterosexual couples on TV seem to be trying to make the point that women are superior to men.
Oh look! He’s tried to put together some flatpack furniture without reading the instructions and my, what a mess he has made of it. What’s this? Two women, smothered with colds but unable to rest on their busy days meet in the street and drop into the conversation that both of their husbands are at home in bed sick. Those lazy husbands who go to bed if they are sick. The weaklings.

Where the boys are – not

December 30, 2013

Four years ago, psychologist Leonard Sax (M.D., Ph.D.) wrote a well-received book titled Boys Adrift. The doctor tried to answer the question, why have so many young males fallen into passivity and indifference?
Dr. Sax had heard more and more parents complain that their boys stayed indoors most of the time, spent hours on video games, and in general seemed to lack the confidence and esprit de corps that had characterized boys throughout history.
“Something scary is happening to boys today,” Sax concluded. “From kindergarten to college, American boys are, on average, less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere twenty years ago. The gender gap in college attendance and graduation rates has widened dramatically.”
The book’s full title is Boys Adrift: The Five Factors Driving the Growing Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men. Sax lists the five factors right on the cover: “video games, teaching methods, prescription drugs, environmental toxins, devaluation of masculinity.”
It’s worrisome that he seems to like them all. That might be a clue that he has not solved this mystery. Indeed, let’s consider the possibility that none of these theories is the deep answer we want. Let’s start from scratch and consider the things we know for sure.
First of all, critics have often noted that schools seem organized more for girls than for boys. Most boys do not want to be confined to a desk; they would rather be outside playing and competing. Second, not only are boys kept passively inside, but they are forced to deal almost the entire day with reading, writing, and arithmetic, probably not their own first choices.
But these factors are historically common. Boys have always been restless at their desks. They have often stared out the window and daydreamed. Furthermore, in many other cultures and ages, discipline was greater; serious academic work was demanded. So it’s not as if there were some golden age when boys had it better. No, they have it worse today, and for reasons that are new.
We are now arriving at the heart of darkness.
Consider that all school activity revolves around two basic skills: reading and arithmetic. Students spend a lot of each day on these and must learn them in order to advance to any other subjects. Failure in these two subjects virtually guarantees failure in all subjects, and in all of life.
Perversely, our public schools, for more than 50 years, have used dysfunctional methods that virtually guarantee failure for the ordinary boy (that is, a boy who will struggle to some degree but finally says, Screw this.)
To learn to read, he is told he must memorize English words as graphic designs. He fails for all the reasons that Rudolf Flesch explained in his 1955 bestseller, Why Johnny Can’t Read. Almost as devastating, the boy must learn arithmetic using one of the dozen curricula collectively called Reform Math. These are exceptionally cumbersome and frustrating for children, as has been amply documented.

Survivor of Nazi Germany speaks about the state of America today

December 30, 2013

Toward the end of his Blaze Radio show Saturday, Buck Sexton received a phone call from a nearly 84-year-old woman who he said gave “one of the most compelling calls I’ve ever heard on any radio show.”

Survivor of German Fascism Reveals on Buck Sexton Radio Program Her One Regret After Living Through Disturbing Rise of U.S. Progressivism

Irma lives in Massachusetts today, but she was born in 1930 under German fascism. She said her father battled tyranny for years, culminating with his imprisonment under the Nazis and another stint behind bars “under the worst conditions” after communism took over in then-East Germany.

“He had his ideas and he wouldn’t bend to them,” she told Sexton in a strong German accent, her voice breaking at times. “He did everything he could to prevent them from coming into power.”

But the tone of Irma’s voice shifted to nearly tearful anguish after Sexton remarked that accounts like hers demonstrate that “there is such a thing as tyranny, that there is such a thing as evil, and people need to understand that.”

Irma offered in what can only be called a warning to listeners that today “people do not understand” that tyranny and evil really exist.

“My biggest regret is that I came here, and we lived a life trusting that we lived under a Constitution that will always be there,” she said, adding that she was “always leery” about what was happening in the 1960s and the political correctness movement coming out of colleges and finally asked herself, “What in the world is this?”

Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston show off their stunning bikini bodies

December 30, 2013

They say you should never go on holiday with your workmates.

But that obviously did not deter old Friends Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston from enjoying a sun-drenched break in Mexico on Saturday.

The former co-stars stripped to their bikinis and flaunted their middle-aged bodies as they enjoyed some quality time with a gaggle of celebrity chums that included shock jock Howard Stern and comic Jimmy Kimmell.
