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...

Deconstructing Disinformation
"ADVOCATES of trickle-down economics argue that, when the rich get extra income, they invest it and create more jobs – and a higher income – for others. Those people, in turn, spend their extra money. Eventually the effect trickles down the whole system, making everyone better off, in absolute terms. So, what seems like a moral outrage – giving more to people who already have more – is in theory a socially benign action. The trouble is it hasn't worked. In the past three decades, states with pro-rich policies have...

In considering how to write up this post, I want to make a few things clear: I have great sympathy for Jenners emotional struggles. However, I do not for a second believe that the "soul" is gendered.

It's sad that the proper historical context of Christianity has been so suppressed and ignored, that what represents Christianity today is at best likely a distorted half truth, the religion that developed in Galilee as a fusion of Greek religion and Hebrew tradition, a product of Sepphoris in the vicinity of Nazareth. "Around the time of the rebellion...
