U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara believes the bombshell charges against New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver could mark a turning point in the battle against political corruption. "If there ever was a moment for real reform, I think it's now," Bharara said. "If ever there was a time for New Yorkers to show trademark impatience, now's a good time for that." The federal prosecutor described the current situation among elected officials in Albany as "a cauldron of corruption." Silver, one of the state's most powerful politicians, surrendered Thursday to charges linked to $4 million in bribes and kickbacks from a pair of law firms. read more

He started the period with 13 points and ended it with FIFTY points. This may honestly be the densest hot streak in the history of professional basketball. It was like watching an atom split on the hardwood.

The stats and records and outpourings of awe:

- 37 is the record for points in a single quarter, destroying the record of 33 held by George Gervin and Carmelo Anthony. And Klay didn't start firing until after the ten-minute mark. Didn't even REALLY get going until mid-way through the quarter.

- NINE three-pointers is the record for threes in a quarter, breaking the mark of 8 set by Michael Redd and Joe Johnson.

- Klay went 13-for-13 in the quarter, tying the record for field goals in a quarter set by David Thompson. read more

(Reuters) - The United States has pulled more staff out of its embassy in Yemen, U.S. officials said on Thursday as Washington scrambled to cope with the collapse of a government that had been a key ally in the fight against al Qaeda.

The scaling down of its presence in Yemen is the first sign that the latest turmoil there will affect U.S operations in a country that President Barack Obama hailed just four months ago as a model for "successful" counter-terrorism partnerships.

The new, freewheeling Senate of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell presided over an agitated debate on the Keystone XL pipeline that churned into Friday's wee hours and ended with aggrieved Democrats crying Koch.

Around midnight, a seemingly endless series of amendment votes and quorum calls shifted as McConnell moved to end debate on a bill that would yank President Barack Obama's authority over the proposed oil pipeline -- after quickly disposing of five Democratic amendments. read more

"Male Ownership of Female Fertility"

I am not sure I agree with this one.... not that didn't happen, but that its a "worst" idea.

The Cardinal Rule of sexual strategies:
For one gender's sexual strategy to succeed the other gender must compromise or abandon their own.

What is described above is the "MaleSexualStrategy".

What we are seeing is a "revolution" towards the "FemaleSexualStrategy", what is that "strategy." Its one where hypergamy is unleashed and you get the " Four Sirens of the Sexual Apocalypse."

1. Effective and widely available contraceptives (the Pill, condom, and the de facto contraceptive abortion).
2. Easy peasy no-fault divorce.
3. Women's economic independence (hurtling towards women's economic advantage if the college enrollment ratio is any indication).
4. Rigged feminist-inspired laws that have caused a disincentivizing of marriage for men and an incentivizing of divorce for women.

It creates a society where pretty soon most children will be raised by a single parent. That parent will also be a working parent, in the US thats about 80% of single mothers.

It creates a society where most men are not procreating, but providing via confiscation (taxation) resources for other mens children. This is known as government enforced cuckholding.

It creates a society upon which men don't know if the children are his, yet he must pay "support" them.

The strategy is also known as the "AlphaFucks and BetaBucks."

Think of a beehive and how bees procreate. 99% of the males are drones... supporting the queen and her offspring. This is the social order of "FemaleOwnershipOfFertility".
