Today on Next Level BS, we take a look at how helicopter parents are not just being insanely smothering of their own kids, they expect society to be overly protective of all kids, everywhere. A recent situation in Maryland, highlights the insanity, where the local police literally abducted a couple's kids, for hours and without notification, because they were simply walking home from the park, alone. "Stranger Danger" now applies to police officers, because we show why it's more dangerous for kids to be in the custody of Child Protective Services, than walking...

World War Three
The full results are in, and when answering the question; "When considering all geopolitical, humanitarian, and conflict factors: Which country below represents the single-most significant threat to humanity," the United States received just under 50% of all the votes, with Russia and Israel statistically tied for a distant second-place. China and Iran are in a dead-heat for third place, with North Korea getting a laughable 2.8% of the vote, which is sure to be a major disappointment for Kim Jong-il. When we look at the source countries...

Political Ideology
Politics has long been a hot-topic here on ATS.
