Be sure to watch this great video to the end. It gets hilarious! See if you can guess what she’s saying, especially so emphatically at the end.

The Guardian this morning has given us more to add to America’s shameful legacy. I post this because it could not be more antithetical to Human decency and empathy (short of ISIL and their ilk, of course). This is what our government became, in your name, and too much of it remains. I am going to establish a Hall of Dishonor and Shame and call for nominees.
A Chicago detective who led one of the most shocking acts of torture ever conducted at Guantánamo Bay was responsible for implementing a disturbingly similar, years-long regime of brutality to elicit murder confessions from minority Americans.
Max T. Furr is author of The Empathy Imperative, a hard-hitting, philosophical novel on the nature of justice and mercy and why we don’t have it.

I’ve little to add to this wonderful post. It should be required reading (including its links) to all parents and expecting mothers:
Excerpt from Got Questions.org:
“Secular psychology is based on the ideas that man is basically good and that the answer to his problems lies within himself. The Bible paints a very different picture of man’s condition.
