Who needs to read fiction or go to movies with news stories like these? No one could make stuff up like this......(all these are actual news reports I quoted)
65 Girls At Area School Pregnant
School To Unveil Three-Prong Program
POSTED: 12:30 pm EDT August 23, 2005
CANTON, Ohio -- There are 490 female students at Timken High School, and 65 are pregnant, according to a recent report in the Canton Repository.
The article reported that some would say that movies, TV, videogames, lazy parents and lax discipline may all be to blame.
School officials are not sure what has caused so many pregnancies, but in response to them, the school is launching a three-prong educational program to address pregnancy, prevention and parenting.
The newspaper also reported that students will face mounting tensions created by unplanned child-rearing responsibilities, causing students to quit school and plan for a GED. This will make it difficult for the Canton City School District to shake its academic watch designation by the state.
According to the Canton Health Department, statistics through July show that 104 of the 586 babies born to Canton residents in Aultman Hospital and Mercy Medical Center had mothers between 11 and 19.
The newspaper reports that the non-Canton rate was 7 percent. Canton was 15 percent.
65 out of 490?? That's a pregnancy rate of 13.3%! They must have switched to Texas Style Sex Education. You know the "Just say no" style. Or maybe that's the Hillbilly style of education, "You are a boy and your sister is a girl, that's different. As your daddy, I'm in charge of teaching you two about sex. I already showed your sister how to do it, and she ain't pregnant yet, so it's her turn to show you. Just remember it ain't incest when you keep it in the family"!!!!
Turkman president bans recorded music
Aug. 23, 2005 at 4:17PM
Turkmenistan President Saparmurat Niyazov has deemed recorded music a negative influence on society and banned it from public events, TV and weddings.
Niyazov has already banned opera and ballet from the former Soviet state, saying they were unnecessary, the BBC reported.
"Unfortunately, one can see on television old voiceless singers lip-synching their old songs, Niyazov told his cabinet regarding music on TV. "Don't kill talents by using lip-synching ... create our new culture."
In 2001, Niyazov, the country's president for life, banned gold tooth caps, long hair and beards on young men.
He has also banned car radios, closed all hospitals except those in the capital and renamed calendar months after his relatives, the BBC said.
"gold tooth caps, long hair and beards on young men", That would piss off all our Ghetto youth & Pimps, Our rebelliouos youth and Muslims. Closing all hospitals and banning car radios takes care of all commuters, country music lovers and the Elderly. Banning Operas & Ballets would piss off the wannabe Cultured crowd, so who's left? It's a good thing he's President for life, right?
Vagrants as Terrorists
WASHINGTON That vagrant in the subway may not really be a homeless person. The government says he may be a terrorist in disguise.
An e-mail message from the U-S Attorney's Office in Washington warns that some terrorists may pose as street people to conduct surveillance of buildings and mass transit stations for future attacks.
The e-mail stresses that there is no known threat of an attack. However, the message says homeless people tend to go unnoticed, particularly in mass transit systems.
Police, fire and emergency personnel are advised to be aware of any vagrants who look unfamiliar or out of place -- a in a recent case in Somerville, Massachusetts. A police officer in Somerville became suspicious about someone dressed as a street person and discovered a passport from the Middle East or South Asia and a checkbook with a questionable address.
This is a load of horse crap... All you need to do is count thier teeth. More than 4 rotted stumps left = not a homeless jerk.
Just black teeth = potential terrorist.
Hand them a beer bottle and a hamburger to see if they suck the beer down down fast or eat the burger. Sucking beer first = homeless asshole, Trying to trade hamburger for another beer = Street person criminal, saying "Thank you, you godless infidel" = terrorist.
THEN THERE'S this American Icon of Holy Preachers, Pat Robertson:
Pat Robertson, from the August 22 broadcast of The 700 Club:
ROBERTSON: There was a popular coup that overthrew him [Chavez]. And what did the United States State Department do about it? Virtually nothing. And as a result, within about 48 hours that coup was broken; Chavez was back in power, but we had a chance to move in. He has destroyed the Venezuelan economy, and he's going to make that a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism all over the continent.
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger and the United ... This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
Maybe he'll start hawking new bumber stickers: WWJA Who would Jesus Assassinate?
Perhaps President Chavez should send over someone to assassinate Pat Robertson! That's what I'd do.
Curiouoso* says, "WTF? Who writes this crap?"
