    why?

    NOBODY CARES.

    Just like the Russia investigation, nobody cares.

    Yeah people really care about the Russia investigation actually. Plus I would love to see peoples’ heads explode when they realize Trump is a scumbag. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/us-news/donald-trumps-marriage-facing-crisis-12147351

    News and history

    North Korea’s Kim Jong Un has asked President Trump for talks, an invitation delivered by South Korea’s national security adviser, according to U.S. officials.

    There has never been a face-to-face meeting, or even a phone call, between the sitting leaders of the two countries.

    South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong stated that Kim Jong-un “expressed his eagerness” to meet with President Trump and Trump stated he would meet with North Korea’s leader by May.
    Chung said, “Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests. He understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue. And he expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible. President Trump appreciated the briefing, and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization.”

    “TEACHER CAN’T STOP HAVING SEX WITH 14 YEAR OLD STUDENT”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYYCdOsMMKc

    This is gross and sad. Welcome to the real world, where people do f**ked up shit with no sense of morality, personal responsibility, and even no care or awareness about what statutory rape is… Yet will still get mentioned and talked about on the internet for a brief 15 minutes of infamy. Hypothetically speaking, even if this woman and her male student were in Italy where the legal age of consent actually is 14, it would still be really disgusting to me since a 14-year-old’s brain isn’t developed enough to give consent to sexual intercourse. ;(

    I just want to get this out of my system. Even if you aren’t as hot as this teacher is (who could have gotten laid EASILY by any adult dude) then instead of turning your horny eye on someone too young to give consent, just look at porn. I know a ton of people criticize porn for being sexist towards women, but don’t think they don’t have porn of sexy men as well! There is so much variety of erotic stuff out there on the internet for ANY type of fetish you may have, that when I see how some people still feel the need to resort to this teacher’s sick pedophilic behavior, it just makes me depressed more than anything else, even more sad than normally disgusted. Even before the internet, there still wasn’t any excuse for this kind of thing, but now with the internet this type of thing seems more inexcusable than ever in history. Oh, and never look at any gross child porn, because if you really are that genuinely sexually obsessed with kids that safe and consensual porn with adults still won’t ever do it for you, then commit yourself to a mental hospital, seek therapy… or (I know this will sound harsh) just kill yourself. The world is already enough of a disturbed mess of a place that one less child molester or even person with those urges will not be missed by any decent and mentally stable human being.

    I’m glad I got this out of my system, sometimes certain news stories piss me off more than others, and this one hit a nerve with me.

    I find this topic disturbing and revolting.

    Broward County Schools Embraced Obama Policy To Avoid Arresting Criminal Students, Allowing Parkland Shooter To Slip Through

    According to Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations.com, the Parkland, Florida school shooter was able to escape scrutiny despite dozens of red flags, including dozens of reports to police and at least two reports to the FBI, thanks to Obama administration policy dedicated to preventing the arrest of troubled students. Sperry writes:
    Florida’s Broward County was in the vanguard of a strategy, adopted by more than 50 other major school districts nationwide, allowing thousands of troubled, often violent, students to commit crimes without legal consequence. The aim was to slow the “school-to-prison pipeline.”

    Put the blame where it belongs, Obama.

    Why?  You don’t like very low unemployment?  You don’t like 3 million jobs created?  You don’t like the very highest employment recorded for African-Americans and Hispanics?  You don’t like lower taxes?

    Really?

    The House Intelligence Committee has found there was no evidence of collusion by the Trump campaign with Russians, according to a one-page summary of its findings released on Monday.

    Russia…give it a rest.

    Is anyone hoping for impeachment by porno star?  Not gonna happen.

    The mainstream media has made Stormy Daniels a household name and it’s time for her to cash in on her newfound fame and I honestly can’t blame her.  I doubt whether she will get any residuals for the sale of her past work, which is probably doing quite well right now.

    “State Law Allows Child Brides To Marry Their Rapists”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0nIPt3S4wk

    This is happening in the UNITED STATES. Not the Middle East, but sadly here in the good ol’ US of A. With this new law only one parent’s consent would be needed for such a marriage to occur. This is just sickening. 🙁

    “Hundreds of Missouri’s 15-year-old brides may have married their rapists”

    http://www.kansascity.com/news/state/missouri/article204292464.html

    According to Eric Adler of the Kansas City Star, “From 1999 to 2015, more than 1,000 15-year-olds married in Missouri.” Also from Adler, “Missouri defines statutory rape as anyone 21 or older having sex with someone under 17 outside of marriage. Within marriage, sex with a minor is legal.

    So um, I know people are pissed off about Russia and Trump and fracking and lots of stuff, but taking a stand against what is child prostitution and child brides, standing up against child molestation should be a real no-brainer. Can’t we all put our partisan political differences aside and agree that pedophilia, legal or illegal, is a really fucking bad thing?! I truly hope that isn’t too hard for the good and sane people of our country to do, because that would be deeply disturbing to me if we can’t all agree that fucking pedophilia is a disgusting thing.

    If anyone is wondering why Tillerson got the axe from his job…..Trump didn’t like hearing bad things about Russia and his pal Val.

    “FRANCE IS REALLY OUT HERE LOWERING THE AGE OF CONSENT TO 15 SO THAT GUYS CAN BANG LITTLE GIRLS IN PEACE”

    https://deadseriousness.com/france-age-of-consent/

    You can laugh at how this sick shit isn’t surprising, especially coming from a country as notoriously morally bankrupt as France (#ButNotALLFrenchPeopleAreAssholes), or you can cry at how slowly the world seems to be going insane on the topic of reasonable ages of consent. I think both reactions would be an appropriate response. 15, 14, why not 15 minutes old? Why not just do away with this ages of consent concept since so many people in charge of the law don’t seem to take it very seriously and why doesn’t everyone just f**k each other in a gigantic orgy? Oh right, because of that dreaded and deeply controversial word “morals.” LOL, I feel that word and concept isn’t taken as seriously as it used to be due to so many crazy bigots saying 2 people of different genders and/or races shouldn’t be allowed to get married because “morals.” F**k that, if you are going to be stupid and ignorant enough to make that argument, that 2 human adults whose brains are fully developed and are thus capable of understanding and giving consent in sexual relations, then you might as well ban sex itself. Then we can all go extinct because some assholes took the necessary concept of morality too far while others chose to ignore the concept of morality in its entirety in part as some kind of rebuttal to bigots abusing the word and its meaning.

    How about THIS: People whose brains are fully developed can give consent and thus should be allowed the opportunity to have legal sex and legally marry whoever they damn well please, and that is perfectly moral. If a child (under the age of 18, that seems like a culturally acceptable age for most people to generally agree upon) whose brain isn’t fully developed wants to have sex and marry someone, then that isn’t moral, and that is actually quite insane. Same goes if an adult wants to have sex with and marry a child, which is how it more commonly occurs than vice versa. I think that seems fair, but that’s just my own damn opinion on this whole sad matter, obviously.

    “HEY REMEMBER WHEN 39-YEAR OLD JERRY SEINFELD DATED A 17-YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL IN THE 90’S?”

    https://deadseriousness.com/hey-remember-when-39-year-old-jerry-seinfeld-dated-a-17-year-old-little-girl-in-the-90s/

    Just when you think the last of your Hollywood heroes have fallen… I honestly had no idea about this garbage. I was already mad at Seinfeld for making light of all those Cosby rape accusations by him comparing it to Bing Crosby disinheriting his kids on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but this brings Seinfeld’s personal creepiness to a whole new level of horrific. Also, what sane and mentally healthy human being decides Bee Movie, a movie where a Bee and a woman have a romantic relationship is a genuinely good idea?! At least in Beauty and the Beast and The Shape of Water neither of the 2 leads were bug-size! I used to love Seinfeld and don’t know if I can feel comfortable re-watching a lot of it knowing what I know now. If I ever want to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus be hilarious, I can always check out the Seinfeld-free Veep.
