      One person was dead and multiple others were wounded Tuesday when gunfire erupted at a Kentucky high school, prompting panicked students to run for their lives.

      Marshall County High School in Benton was on lockdown and a suspect was in custody as paramedics tended to the injured and wounded, state police reported.

      This is the second school shooting this week after Monday's in Texas. After multiple school shootings in 2017, these are becoming far too commonplace for a democratic society, based on life and liberty to tolerate.

      Inaction has served no useful purpose, in fact it has led to an exacerbation of a growing issue with increasing lethal results.

      The deaths of our children are owned by those who refuse to enter a constructive effort to address this issue instead of the obstinate defense of "rights" which have led to an explosion of weapons in our social fabric.

      We have reached the age, oh so quickly, where the insanity of mass murder is normalized and facilitated.

      Pope Shocks Chile By Accusing Sex Abuse Victims Of Slander

          We have heard over and over that this Pope is enlightened and is going to do something about clerical pedophilia and the cover ups, me being a recovering Catholic never ever bought into that sick fantasy. There have been previous incidents of the RCC assigning offending priests to different parishes under this Pope, but the Catholics don't want to see or acknowledge these facts.

          If you're a Catholic and the following statements by this vaunted future Saint doesn't offend and anger you, then you are complicit;

          Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, such accusations against Barros are "all calumny."

          The pope's remarks drew shock from Chileans and immediate rebuke from victims and their advocates. They noted the accusers were deemed credible enough by the Vatican that it sentenced Karadima to a lifetime of "penance and prayer" for his crimes in 2011. A Chilean judge also found the victims to be credible, saying that while she had to drop criminal charges against Karadima because too much time had passed, proof of his crimes wasn't lacking.

          .

          "In the typical Chilean family, parents (now) think twice before sending their kids to Catholic school because you never know what is going to happen," Navia said.


          Are you kidding me, a lifetime of penance and prayer for child rape 6 years ago, and the victims are slandering the bishop and pedophile priest?

          What happens when a school teachers is accused of pedophilia? Arrest, suspension or loss of job and instant irrevocable national pariah is what, But religion ....not so much. The evangelicals aren't any better than the Catholics as we saw with Roy Moore.

          Women and children are under increased danger from sexual predators...and we have religious leaders still blaming and vilifying the perpetrators.....and getting away with it.

              This SOB should be behind bars along with the rest of his administration for what they did to this country and the rest of the planet. I guess many DOLTS have forgotten what this POS is responsible for...I haven't.

              I'd like to know who in the hell they are polling to get this result.

                  This is what happens when you have a lame brained president always calling out the news as fake. Since this arrest what does that fake president do? He gives out fake fake press awards which I am sure his base just squealed with delight, Trump's supporters just can't seem to get enough of his childish ignorant behavior. I am not saying Trump's base is stupid or dumb or ignorant but they sure as hell act as if they were. This was all brought on by Trump and no one else.

                  If someone did kill members of the Press, of course Trump will deny he ever called the news media fake and his base will believe him.

                  UK Regulator: Fox Takeover Of Sky News Not In Public Interest

                      How can one tell if a society is civilized or not? A civilized society would reject Murdoch and Fox and not allow them to gain a monopoly on their media. The most important and best reason the UK rejected Murdoch's bid to takeover Sky News was.........(drum roll)............It Was Not in the Public's Interest. The UK regulators also hit the nail on the head when they said that if this deal went through Fox and Murdoch would have... "too much influence over public opinion and the political agenda." Really? Someone thinks Murdoch/Fox would use their media platform as a means to influence public opinion and political agenda? Nooooo, that would never happen because Fox only presents a fair and balanced program and would never think of pushing some political Party's influence upon the masses.



                      What exactly does Murdoch own in full and in part these days?

                          Here is something I find deeply disturbing. This Senator, Tom Cotton (R), has taken it upon himself to send cease and desist letters to his constituents to shut them up. Seriously, this is not a joke. This just goes to show just how corrupt and dysfunctional our lawmakers like Cotton have become.

                          This is the same Cotton who went behind President Obama's back and along with signatures from 47 Republican colleagues, all Senators, sent a letter to Iran to disrupt the peace process. I am surprised Cotton wasn't tried for treason, blindfolded and placed against a wall and shot. Being that under Trump the worst possible people for top jobs within his administration are being placed this "traitor" Cotton is Trumps first choice to head the CIA. This is what I truly find not only disturbing but just plain wrong on so many levels. This cannot be allowed to happen. Cotton is an enemy of our Nation and shouldn't even be sitting in Congress.

                              Why have the GOP dragged their feet, muddied the waters, fogged up the landscape, over the fate of the "Dreamers", and the "CHPers". We keep hearing that they want nothing more than to "compassionately, lovingly" provide for those in the DACA program and for those who depend on the CHP for their health care. Why?????? And when I say "The GOP" I mean both Houses of Congresses and the White House. What's in it for them?


                              Hostages. Those two programs are vital to the Dems. The are Identity Programs. They are a test of progressive credentials.


                              Passing them before a crisis where the GOP needs leverage would be throwing away great hostage opportunities.


                              "Pass our Continuing Resolution and we'll let the kids go to the doctor."

                              "Give us our 'wall' and the DACA Dreamers can stay."


                              BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED YESTERDAY THAT I SUSPECT THE GOP DID NOT EXPECT.....The Dems took the Government hostage!


                              Stay tuned. The hostage negotiations have just begun.

                                  Ruth Bader Ginsburg Talks #MeToo Movement, Shares Her Stories: ‘It’s About Time’

                                  “Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, although we didn’t have a name for it,” Ginsburg said.



                                  Ruth Bader Ginsburg opened up about the #MeToo movement at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday.

                                  At a panel hosted by NPR’s Nina Totenberg in Elks Lodge in Salt Lake City, Ginsburg acknowledged that the #MeToo movement has been a long time coming.

                                  “It’s about time. For so long, women were silent, thinking there was nothing you could do about it, but now the law is on the side of women, or men, who encounter harassment, and that’s a good thing,” she told Totenberg.

                                  “So far, it’s been great,” she added. “When I see women appearing every place in numbers, I’m less worried about a backlash than I might have been 20 years ago.”

                                  The Supreme Court associate justice is in Utah for the premiere of “RBG,” a documentary on her life and law career directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen.

                                  In addition to remarking on the movement’s growth, Ginsburg also recounted her own experiences with sexism and inappropriate male behavior.

                                  “Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, although we didn’t have a name for it,” she said.

                                  In one instance, Ginsburg said while she was a student at Cornell, a chemistry professor offered her a practice exam after she asked for help — only the professor provided a copy of the actual test he’d be giving. Ginsburg didn’t go into too many specifics, but noted that she “knew exactly what he wanted in return” for the help he gave her.

                                  “The next day, the test is the practice exam, and I knew exactly what he wanted in return,” Ginsburg said. “I went to his office and said, ‘How dare you?’ And that was the end of that.”

                                  Another story the 84-year-old shared involved her being viewed unfairly by a male judge who was hesitant to hire her as a law clerk because she was a woman with a child. The law professor at Columbia University who recommended Ginsburg for the position offered the judge, a Columbia alumnus who routinely hired Columbia students, a male student if Ginsburg didn’t pan out.

                                  “That was the carrot,” Ginsburg said of the entire ordeal. “The stick was, [the professor told the judge] ‘If you don’t give her a chance, I will never recommend another Columbia student for you.’”

                                  Ginsburg also described a time when Columbia Law School laid off 25 women in the maintenance department without laying off a single man. That act caused her to march into the university’s vice president for business’ office to tell him that the university was violating Title VII, which prohibits discrimination in hiring based on race, sex, religion or national origin.

                                  The vice president apparently dismissed her, telling Ginsburg, “Professor Ginsburg, Columbia has excellent Wall Street lawyers representing them, and would you like a cup of tea?”

                                  Not long after, an application for a temporary injunction against Columbia was filed and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sent their chief counsel to argue in favor of it. To that, Ginsburg said that, all of a sudden, “Columbia decided they didn’t really have to lay off anyone.”

                                  You can watch the full exchange above, where she also talks about motherhood and Kate McKinnon playing her on “Saturday Night Live.”

                                  “I liked the actress who portrayed me,” Ginsburg said. “And I would like to say, ’Gins-Burn!’”
