01) Fall of the Roman Empire – When Will It Happen to the U.S.?


“Could the fall of the Roman empire have been caused partly by the privatization of their military?

Mortal Republican: How Rome Fell to Tyranny details how privatization of the military was precursor to the the eventual fall of the entire empire.

As companies like Black Water begin the same task with privatizing combat fighting, security, and others are cutting into the VA, could we be seeing the same phenomenon that caused the Roman empire to fall happening to the United States Empire?”

Georgia’s Anti-Abortion Law…

01) Whoopi Goldberg Dunks On Meghan McCain


“The View had a conversation about Georgia passing a fetal heartbeat bill.

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg chastised co-host Meghan McCain on Monday morning during a debate on the recent “heartbeat” abortion bill passed in Georgia, telling her conservative colleague it is unfair to say liberals don’t believe that science shows life begins at conception.

Discussing actress and activist Alyssa Milano’s much-mocked call for a sex strike in response to the restrictive abortion legislation, McCain said she doesn’t “like clicktivism as a general rule,” referencing Milano’s tweet.

After blasting the liberal actress for not giving her plan much thought, McCain went on to say that Milano and others need to understand that “pro-life women” like herself feel they “are completely left out of conversations like this.”

“It doesn’t occur to her that there are women like me that don’t have a problem with this bill,” McCain added.

I don’t wish to analyze every video, etc., but I do find it valuable to share these kinds of video, etc., even if I disagree substantially with any of it…It’s important to acknowledge and embrace, that there are people out there, who are engaged in levelheaded discussion about “pedophiles”. – Steve

01) The truth about paedophilia

02) MP3 Download



“It’s scary to learn, but sexual attraction to children is a lot more common than most people realise.

Not everyone with that problem will meet with the clinical definition for paedophilia, but the attraction is there nevertheless.

So what separates a would-be abuser from an abuser?

Today’s episode is part one of a two part special where we speak to three men who say they’ve never offended but struggle with the attraction they feel towards children.

We also ask an expert about exactly how common attraction to children is, and what it is that makes people more likely to act on it.
