Robert Deniro tells graduating class “you’re f—ed and people call it a great speech…what?

This morning on Twitter I looked a link to a Time magazine article. The headline said Robert Deniro gives the best commencement speech ever. I read the link and saw Deniro had told those in the creative sciences that they were
f—ed. Call me crazy but I fail to see the brilliance, and I question who are we choosing to deliver commencement addresses. The graduates have worked hard to receive their degrees and wouldn’t it be nice to give the graduates words of encouragement? No it does not have to be rosy nonsense but it certainly does not have to be you’re f—ed. Share your thoughts.

Jim Bob Duggar failed to report for 1 year that his son Josh was a child molester

The Duggar family portray old fashioned family values on their TLC show. They are Christian and hard core right wingers. Father Jim Bob is the head of his family and in that role he rules the roost, but he is not the law. In Touch magazine is reporting that their oldest son Josh confessed to molesting his sisters and another girl. He is now 27 and these acts happened when he was 14. His father did not report the crime for an entire year and when he did report it it was done to a family friend who is in law enforcement. The Duggars say they prayed and God has forgiven him. I believe He has, but Grace is given by God, but when you molest a child you break man’s law and your punishment should not be determined by your dad even if he is Jim Bob Duggar.

Google Maps directions to Nigger House

Type Nigger House into Google maps and it will take you to the White House. So who did it? Why would they do it? I wish I was shocked but since 2007 we have seen overt racism aimed at the President and his family. It is not going to stop and they are vilified if they choose to share the indignities they have endured.This is just another incident. Not the first and it will not be the last.

Duke professor post racial comments online and is put on leave…is this fair?

Wle often hear people say after every racial incident that we need to have a national conversation on race, but what does that really men? When you have a honest conversation on anything often people get their feelings hurt. Are we mature enough to handle the truth? A Duke professor, Jerry Hough is on leave for posting some racial comments on a NYT article. His comments are his personal opinion. I find them offensive but is racist the right description? Read the linked article and share your thoughts.
