The College Rape Club

Indeed it is, but my lawyer told me that it has become increasingly common, especially as there is no penalty in most states for a false accusation, and no record for the accuser. The underlying assumption seems to be that "something" happened even if we can't pin a rape on you. Even an arrest will follow you forever.

I usually have some wiseguy remark to make on these occasions, but having survived a false accusation of rape myself, I find that my funny bone is strangely muted. I didn't even know my accuser until she accused my. My crime was to have a tussle with her drug dealer boyfriend about propping open the back door of our apartment building for the convenience of his customers (my apartment had been broken into and all of my electronics stolen). Fortunately, the charges were dropped even before I was arrested or my career would have been over. Normal women would never falsely accuse a man of rape, but there are entirely too many with dodgy legal or mental histories who think that it is a dandy weapon to wield against men. My lawyer told me so, and that I was lucky (after I handed him a check for $1560). Essentially, I was fined for being a man.
Sally Kohn is a radical feminist lesbian of the Catharine MacKinnon school, who maintain that all heterosexual intercourse is rape. I don't believe that she thinks much of Bubba, but is willing to remain silent for the sake of politics.
Facts second? No -- no facts at all. This is a tactic straight from Sol Alinsky: do not engage your opponent on the facts but attack them personally. If you can get away with calling them racists, sexists, homophobes or -- now -- rapists, then you can win any argument on a purely emotional level. To be accused of being a rapist, even if you are demonstrably innocent, is a life changing catastrophe. Why take the chance?
This is one of the many reasons that email from Columbia University Alumni Association is sent directly to my junk mail folder.
I agree with upside22. This smells like a bill of attainder and a violation of the US constitution. Why were these scum given this loophole in the first place? They should have stayed in this country to face justice rather than be bribed to leave.
As much as I love our two cats and would love to have them join us in heaven, animals are neither innocent nor guilty because they do not have souls. God gave us animals to rule over them as he gave us the rest of the world. We owe the animals care and respect because they are God's gift, but he gave them to us to use for food, shelter, and other worthy purposes.
Those who insist on using "kill" instead of "murder" are guilty of violating the third commandment (or second, depending on how your faith numbers them): "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain." That commandment does not mean not to use four-letter words, but to not do or say things falsely in God's name. Misappropriating God's word to promote your political agenda surely falls into this category.
Liberals also want an America where people can get rich -- provided that they do it in politics or government.

The Path to a Permanent GOP Majority

1. The Republicans can push all the stories they want to but they wont be covered except maybe by Fox. We need conservative media in this country. During the founding fathers' time robust media represented all sides; today they are the DNC's publicity arm. 2. Democrats have always relied on emotion and personal attack. It come from from Saul Alinsky: Never engage your opponents on the issues but attack them personally as racist, sexist, homophobic, hypocritical, etc.

Blessed are the politically correct, for they shall inherit the Kingdom of Barack, the first of his name. BTW, does anyone know how he styles himself? Is he a "Your Grace" or a"Your Majesty?" How about "Your Insolence" or "Your Inconsequentiality". Yeah, that sounds right.
