Eastern Idaho, crouch
When I read about Suleman on Huffpo, I turned to my sister and told her I thought this was just some really weird variation on Munchauser by Proxy. This horrid excess, though while not actually poisoning her kids (yet), still has some sick relationship with hyper-attention for the mother. Cope, you've added some interesting ideas of a societal role in the mix, but bubbles in the tide? Is that how you and your beautiful wife raised your only daughter? I know for a fact it was not, and it wasn't how my late husband and I raised our girl. Or is it only other parents who don't instill a sense of grounding in their kids? The pressure is greater on girls, but boys have their share too. Life can be tough, so we ought to teach our children self-respect above all else. This gal is obviously crazy, and interviews with her parent/victims says it all. Good column.
George Bernard Shaw also said "Cruelty would be delicious if one could only find some sort of cruelty that didn't really hurt." -- Looking forward to that dust-up column here in Idaho-ho, but more so the George Bush/war criminal one promised.
p.s. you psycho bastard. I'm a female, you're obviously a misogynist time-bomb, and the cops need to figure out where you're located. I've started them on the process.
Okay asswipe --- I'm now officially afraid of you and have called a friend of mine who is very good at tracking nutcases like you. Our conversation is over.
In the 1970's, after marrying a man who had escaped from the Soviet Block (I'm from Idaho), I started realizing unbridled capitalism could, and probably would, be just as dangerous as communism. Maybe more so, since our leaders would never allow us to believe we're not free. I'm a widow now, watching my retirement dwindle away before I've even spent a dime of it. I'm not afraid, but I'm sure as hell pissed. I hate Bush, but I blame Congress. They've all sold themselves like whores, and most are so stupid they didn't even wait for the highest bidder. As an old hippie, I still remember the mantra "Power to the People". It's time to end war and poverty, and take our governments back from these crooks. Jesus H., are there ANY honest people in government anymore? Things better shape up, or there will be revolution. And I'll probably welcome it. It was Jefferson who said it was our duty.
P.S. -- since this follows what I just wrote, I get to p.s., just like the last time. It pleases me no end to tell you nothing the government can do, as long as we still have a first amendment in the Bill of Rights, can shut Cope up if the Boise Weekly keeps him on the payroll. Boise Weekly will never be forced to hire an opposing opinion writer. Boise Weekly can print much whatever it damn well wants and you have a choice to read it or not read it. Also, have you considered getting the professional mental health you so obviously need?
mesamonk -- do a little homework (your dog ate it, right?) before you start talking about the Fairness Doctrine. I worked in broadcasting for 15 years, and the Fairness Doctrine never has or never will deal with the print media. Why? Because the PUBLIC does not own newspapers or magazines. We don't have to buy them if we chose not to, and it's possible for a trillion privately published options. However, we the PEOPLE do own our free airwaves, and other than paid-for satellite radio, cable etc., the amount of band space on those PUBLIC airwaves is finite due to well established scientific principles.
Reagan's FCC head, Mark Fowler, bullied the deregulation and ultimate mess allowing a corporation like Clear Channel to own 1200 radio stations that all broadcast the same narrow opinions in 1200 markets. Fowler destroyed the Fairness Doctrine, thanks to corporate lobbyists, a Democratic congress reinstated it, Reagan vetoed that bill (odd because he used it to get his weekly radio show before he became the pres)and now our choices are so limited as listeners it's astounding.
Like I said, DO YOUR HOMEWORK monkboy.
