Patrice Lewis won’t apologize for raising kids away from culture’s debauchery
– WorldNetDaily
In this cheery little artificial la-la land where I reside, boys are young knights-in-training and girls are virtuous and feminine. Children do not long for new and creative ways to self-destruct, and they have no wish to create havoc in their parent’s home. And when everyone grows up, they court, get married and have babies (in that order).

People sometimes (with a straight face, mind you) accuse my husband and I of “depriving” or even “abusing” our children by homeschooling them in a rural setting. The implication is because our children are growing up valuing modesty, self-control, honor and self-respect, they are maladjusted little twits who will end up as drooling misguided troglodytes with the collective social skills of, say, wood lice.

In the “real” world of modern America, girls are raunchy sexual creatures whose sole purpose from toddler-hood on up is to dress provocatively, adorn their bodies with tattoos, piercings and make-up, and whose sole goal in life, apparently, is to find out how many boys they can bed.

US Court ruling opens the door to more nudity – NY Post
The US Second Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated the $1.21 million worth of fines that the FCC levied against ABC after alleging that the network violated broadcast indecency standards for daring to show actress Charlotte Ross’ naked behind during a 2003 episode of “NYPD Blue.”

The result of the latest ruling is that “because networks know that they won’t be fined for [showing bare buns on screen], they know that it is another tool in the arsenal to engage viewers,” says Lawrence Meyers, editor of “Inside the TV Writer’s Room”

In essence, the ruling “gives television producers and networks more freedom to do it if they wish,” he says, noting that “because network ratings are in severe decline and have been for a number of years, they may try to pull out all the stops and say, ‘Let’s throw in as much nudity and swear words as we can out there,’ instead of focusing on playing great content, which they have not been doing.”

Freedom in decline worldwide: US report
– Breitbart
In “Freedom in the World 2011” the Washington-based Freedom House said it had documented the longest continuous period of decline since it began compiling the annual index nearly 40 years ago. “Authoritarian regimes like those in China, Egypt, Iran, Russia, and Venezuela continued to step up repressive measures with little significant resistance from the democratic world,” it said. The Middle East and North Africa continued to lead the world in lack of freedom following a “multi-year decline from an already-low democratic baseline,” the group said.

Wikipedia: You Still Can’t Trust It
– PC Mag
Yes, I use Wikipedia but I’m the first to admit that the online encyclopedia’s fundamental flaws remain. I trust virtually nothing unless I can find a second, verifying source.
Wikipedia at 10 is really no more trustworthy than it was at two, five, or eight years old. However, the reality is that this is how the world prefers its information now: interpreted through the prism of belief and self interest
