Robert E. Lee's Arlington mansion gets $12 million donation

Via Bob


After philanthropist David M. Rubenstein agreed to fund half the cost of fixing the earthquake damaged Washington Monument, he asked National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis: "What else you got?"

"Well, I have a long list," Jarvis said he replied. At the top was the repair of the tattered 200-year-old Arlington House and Robert E. Lee Memorial in Arlington Cemetery. It's condition, Jarvis thought, was embarrassing.

Last winter, on a cold, rainy day, Jarvis gave Rubenstein a tour of the house where the famous Confederate general had lived before the Civil War. Rubenstein asked for a repair proposal.
"We proposed $12.3 million," Jarvis said Thursday. He said Rubenstein replied: "Be glad to do that."

Planned Parenthood Tells Kids, "Experiment by Pooping on Your Sex Partners"

Planned Parenthood is super disgusting. But we already knew that…

This time they are super disgusting for a whole new reason. The good folks at Live Action have done a bit of digging and a bit of recording to bring us the real scoop on Planned Parenthood.

The Obama administration has been intensely criticized by many who contend its leftward trajectory has stunted economic growth and kept unemployment levels unreasonably high.

Recent studies show the startling effect these policies have had on the traditional American family structure. According to a Los Angeles Times report, the scarcity of good jobs has been a major factor in a record high number of adults forced to live with parents to make ends meet.

Nearly one in four Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 now live with parents or grandparents, the study found.

That number has spiked in just the first six years of Obama’s presidency. In 2007, just 18.7 percent of those in the same age group shared a home with older relatives.

Cops: Dad beats man found raping son


Daytona Beach police are saying a father who walked in on a man sexually battering his 11-year-old son was “acting like a dad’ when he severely beat the molester and won’t be charged with a crime.

The father, who had left his home briefly while a neighbor, Raymond Frolander, 18, stayed with his son, said when he returned he suspected something was amiss since the house was so quiet. Upon going to a back room, he discovered Frolander in the act.

“He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said,” the father told the 9-1-1 dispatcher. “I did whatever I got a right to do, except I didn’t kill him.”
