No TV For You! - The Dissident Dad

I am all about freedom of choice, with one exception: I am the TV Nazi in my house. 
By The Dissident Dad: According to a 2013 report from Nickelodeon to its advertisers, children today are watching 35 hours of television a week! That’s like a full-time job. Heck, if TV watching was a job, these kids would qualify for Obamacare and a 401k employer match.
My first born didn’t watch TV for the first two years of his life. Today, he watches about 3 hours a week. The kids have access to the one TV in our home, for 1 movie a week with their grandpa, and two cartoons geared towards education, such as Leap Frog, Super Why, or a nature documentary. In addition to that, we probably watch about 30 minutes of YouTube videos, either educational videos or pranks in any given week. Sorry, but we just love watching a good prank – especially the Scary Snowman.
I’ve actively denied them TV and will continue to do so. As an anarchist-libertarian dad, I want to encourage freedom, the ability to think for yourself, and to help my kids pursue their passions. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t allow an elderly person with Alzheimer’s to enter a busy street alone, or a friend who is brain damaged to get behind the wheel of a car. As a father, I have to step in when it comes to my children and television.

J4MB's Public Challenge Of Nicky Morgan MP, Secretary Of State For Education, Minister For Women & Equalities

By Mike Buchanan: Over the coming five years, prior to the 2020 general election, we’re going to be publicly challenging many Conservative politicians over the UK government’s anti-male policy directions. Last October we challenged Theresa May MP over a sham of a consultation exercise relating to domestic violence, the Home Office’s implicit adoption of the long-discredited male coercion theory of domestic violence, and the state’s woeful lack of support for male victims of domestic violence. Today we’re publicly challenging Nicky Morgan MP, Secretary of State for Education, Minister for Women & Equalities, over the failure of the state education system over almost 30 years. The failure resulted from the introduction of GCSEs in the 1987/8 academic year, which caused the gender education gap which remains with us to this day.

Super Cool Iceland Imprisoned Its Banksters And Let Banks Go Bust: What Happened Next In 3 Charts

Tyler Durden's picture This year, Iceland will become the first European country that hit crisis in 2008 to beat its pre-crisis peak of economic output. In spite of its total 180-degree treatment of nefarious bankers, the banking system, and the people of its nation when compared to America (or The UK), Iceland has proved that there is a different (better) option that western dogma would suggest. As abhorrent as this prospect is to the mainstream's talking heads and Keynesian Klowns who bloviate wildly on macro-economics and endless counterfactuals, Iceland came to that fork in the road, and took it...
As The Independent reports,
While the UK government nationalised Lloyds and RBS with tax-payers’ money and the US government bought stakes in its key banks, Iceland adopted a different approach. It said it would shore up domestic bank accounts. Everyone else was left to fight over the remaining cash.It also imposed capital controls restricting what ordinary people could do with their money– a measure some saw as a violation of free market economics.The plan worked. Iceland took a huge financial hit, just like every other country caught in the crisis.

F4J Founder Says Public ‘Can Have No Confidence’ In IPSO After MP Ruling

By F4J: The Founder of Fathers4Justice today criticised the Independent Press Standards Organisation after he complained about the failure of the Romsey Advertiser newspaper to report the involvement of an MP in a violent incident at his home in February 2014.
Pic: Caroline Nokes MP and the bite mark suffered by a victim at the home of F4J Founder Matt O’Connor.
The incident led to Matt O’Connor and his wife beginning civil action against Caroline Nokes, the MP for Romsey and Southampton North, for aiding and abetting assault, causing alarm and distress to a child, stalking, harassment, breach of privacy and trespass. The O’Connor’s seek damages and compensation for anxiety, distress and fear, caused to their 8-yr-old son who is also a party to proceedings. The case is still before the County Court.
On 20th February 2015 the Romsey Advertiser reported that the claim had been ‘thrown out’ at a court hearing, yet the paper failed to give the O’Connor’s a right to reply to the story before publication, failed to report that the O’Connor’s had not been informed of the hearing (thereby the ruling going unchallenged) and then denied them any right to reply after the article had been published and any comment subsequently about the ongoing legal action.

A Question For Women

"Ladies, it’s not a secret that men are walking away from you. A growing number of men under the age of 40 are not getting married. Beyond the four decade hump, many “single” men are struggling to repair lives devastated by the scorched earth system of family law in divorce. Only the truly learning-disabled go back for more in that arena.

John Friend: Gilad Atzmon On Jewish Ethnocentrism, Hypocrisy, & "Anti-Semitism"

'The Jews are not a race and are actually
far from forming any racial continuum.'
John Friend: What follows is part two of an ongoing Q&A discussion I am having with Gilad Atzmon, an Israeli-born internationally renowned musician, philosopher, and writer. I hope to continue this dialogue in the future.
JF: I think a strong argument can be made that the vast majority of Jews, and certainly the organized Jewish community, conduct their lives, business, and other affairs by the maxim: Is it good for the Jews? What's good for the Jews is often also framed as: is it good for Israel? Admittedly, there are at times heated debates and diverging points of view within the international Jewish community about what exactly is good for the Jews (and by extension the Jewish state of Israel).
GA: This is a true observation, however I would refine it a bit, if you allow me. The Judeocentrism you describe above is symptomatic of those who identify politically, socially, spiritually and culturally as Jews. This identification is vague and is kept vague for a reason. It allows the tribally oriented mind to slip in and out and to morph in accordance to the transforming reality around it. However, it is true to argue that those who identify as Jews, whether hard core Zionists or so-called "progressives", such as Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), are primarily concerned with one thing, namely Jewish interests. They just fail to agree amongst themselves what these interests are.
