01) Weinstein accuser Asia Argento ‘pays $380k to settle assault case’

“Asia Argento, one of the most prominent activists of the #MeToo movement, has settled a complaint by a young actor who accused her of sexually assaulting him when he was 17, it has been reported.

The Italian actress, 42, settled the notice of intent to sue filed by Jimmy Bennett, who is now 22, for $380,000 (£298,000), the New York Times reports.

The notice was filed by Bennett after Argento accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of raping her last October.

Bennett says in the notice that he had sex with Argento in a California hotel in 2013. The age of consent in California is 18.

The notice says the encounter traumatised Bennett and hurt his career, the Times reported.

The newspaper said it received court documents that included a selfie of Argento and Bennett in bed.”

No…

…Just…No!

You know what so messed up about human sexuality these days?…all the people who want to cash in, on their past sex…cash in on “the vile pervert” being presently crucified in public…The people who refuse to take ownership, of their own sexual decisions…

…I liked Jimmy Bennett as a child actor…thought he was cute…

…But I’m not sure which one of these two is the bigger douche bag, in this news story.

I’m guessing…Jimmy isn’t getting much prime work anymore, and badly wants a paycheck?

In my opinion…nobody should be able to do this…Nobody should be able to conquest an older sex partner [or even just be their “boy toy” for a night], happily enough to pose for a selfie in the aftermath…just to turn around and demand a ton of money, over a legal technicality…

What did Asia do?…strap on a dildo, and force him to be the “submissive partner”?…

Just as curious…it seems what was going around, is coming back around for Asia…

Sexual douchebaggery, is a large part of what’s driving human sex rights into the ground…

…So many people refuse to treat sexuality, like it needs to be treated…So few take personal responsibility…

It’s like I’ve said many times before…

…All these people in the world, who treat their own sex life like a sewer…They then watch the rest of us like hawks, with dehumanizing, accusatory suspicion and paranoia…thinking we have to be restrained and arrested, sexually…because they presume we must be exactly just like them.

Mormons Claim Weed Infringes On Their Freedom…


Date: August 21, 2018

01) Mormons Claim Weed Infringes On Their Freedom


“After its first year of implementation, how has Operation Rio Grande impacted crime and homelessness in Salt Lake City? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints bristles against the term “LDS” and asks that its members not be referred to as Mormons. Opponents to Utah’s medical marijuana ballot initiative argue against it on the basis of religious freedom. And the absence of a tiny star on driver licenses may affect Utahns’ ability to travel.
At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Paighten Harkins, managing editor Dave Noyce and columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories. Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” online at kcpw.org or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.

Bill Would Prohibit California from Sending Youth Under 16 to Adult Courts…

01) Bill Would Prohibit California from Sending Youth Under 16 to Adult Courts

“A violent riot broke out in the yard on Michael Mendoza’s very first day in a state prison — a stark wake-up call to his new reality.

At age 15, Mendoza had been tried as an adult and sentenced to life in prison.

“I thought, ‘This is my life, this is what it’s going to be like,’” Mendoza said of that day some 20 years ago. “It’s going to be very violent. And I was going to have to become something I wasn’t to survive — a violent individual.”

For certain crimes in California, teens as young as 14 can be sentenced as adults, and sent to prison for life, like Mendoza was. Senate Bill 1391, a bill moving through the state legislature, aims to stop that in light of new understandings of brain development.”

Lawmaker pushes bill to limit sex offender housing…

01) Lawmaker pushes bill to limit sex offender housing

“SHIRLEY –
State Assemblyman Dean Murray is demanding relief for a Shirley family whose neighbors include five convicted sex offenders all sharing the same house.

He joined a group of Suffolk school officials and parents to demand lawmakers pass a bill to allow county officials to determine where sex offenders can reside.

The state Senate already passed the bill, which would reverse an appellate court decision that invalidated local laws on the issue in 2015.”

One has to question if these people have substantiated concerns…or if they are just ignorant and paranoid.

Trump Lies About Opioids…

01) Trump Lies About Opioids


“Drug overdoses killed about 72,000 Americans last year, a record number that reflects a rise of around 10 percent, according to new preliminary estimates from the Centers for Disease Control. The death toll is higher than the peak yearly death totals from H.I.V., car crashes or gun deaths.
Analysts pointed to two major reasons for the increase: A growing number of Americans are using opioids, and drugs are becoming more deadly. It is the second factor that most likely explains the bulk of the increased number of overdoses last year.

The picture is not equally bleak everywhere. In parts of New England, where a more dangerous drug supply arrived early, the number of overdoses has begun to fall. That was the case in Massachusetts, Vermont and Rhode Island; each state has had major public health campaigns and has increased addiction treatment. Preliminary 2018 numbers from Massachusetts suggest that the death rate there may be continuing to fall.

01) Florida Schools Forced To Display ‘In God We Trust’


“Public schools in Florida must display the national motto, “In God We Trust,” starting this week.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, public schools must display the motto in “a conspicuous place” under legislation sponsored by state Rep. Kimberly Daniels (D), who also leads a Christian ministry.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed the bill in March. It requires “each district school board” to display the national motto inside “all of the schools of the district and in each building used by the district school board.”

“Thirteen-year-old David, living without a mother with a drinking father, meets the son of new neighbors…”

The thigh touching at about 5:45 in, leading into a black screen and heavy breathing…

…It’s curious how you only tend to see this sort of commonality in life, represented in independent films…

…I guess…reality of life is too much, for the big studios…who are solely concerned about making their money.

…The red headed mop top, is freaking cute!
