In her remarks at the funeral — with her four brothers standing behind her on the altar at Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Potomac, Md. — [Maria] Shriver said that beyond her father’s outstanding life in public service, his greatest accomplishment was the way he taught her brothers “how to treat a wife.” She stressed that the Peace Corps founder taught his sons that being “a strong man is about being a strong person, and nurturing, and how to be a gentleman, a gentle man.”Hat tip to No Sheeples.
Appearing to shoot a serious glance at Schwarzenegger (seated in the front row at the service), Shriver also said her brothers had learned from their dad “how to revere and honor their wives, just as my father did,” in his 56-year marriage to her late mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
As she started her talk, Shriver said that the first thing that came to her mind when thinking of her dad was his relationship with her mother: “the way he looked at her, treated her, cared for her, looked after her, adored her and respected her.”
There's an old African proverb that says, "Who knows whose womb carries the chief?" This simple truth has taken on a powerful meaning recently for every American paying attention.No means no: Then there's DSK, the socialist pig who allegedly attacked a maid in his $3000 hotel room. It's important to remember that he hasn't confessed to or been convicted of a crime, but Ben Stein takes things to a foolish extreme:
According to recently secured documents from the Immigration and Naturalization Services, evidence has emerged that President Obama's father, Barack Obama, Sr., apparently paid to send a young Kenyan girl he had impregnated in Massachusetts to London to have an abortion.
Doing the work that investigative journalists of the mainstream media used to do, author Jack Cashill reveals that the foreign press, unlike their American counterparts, are all over the story. Far from speculation, according to the INS documents, the high school aged girl was in Massachusetts on an exchange program when she evidently became pregnant by the 29 year old Obama. Asian News International notes that this incident occurred prior to 1973's Roe v. Wade decision, meaning, "abortions were illegal in the U.S."
2.) In life, events tend to follow patterns. People who commit crimes tend to be criminals, for example. Can anyone tell me any economists who have been convicted of violent sex crimes? Can anyone tell me of any heads of nonprofit international economic entities who have ever been charged and convicted of violent sexual crimes? Is it likely that just by chance this hotel maid found the only one in this category? Maybe Mr. Strauss-Kahn is guilty but if so, he is one of a kind, and criminals are not usually one of a kind.So? We all know that powerful men can get away with a lot. Because they're, you know, powerful. Some of them use that power to hurt and intimidate. They don't always get caught, so they aren't "criminals" by Stein's definition. This can't be news to Ben Stein.
