New TV show has couples commit adultery “to save” their marriage

The 6th Commandment: “You shall not commit adultery”

The Sodom and Gomorrah of America’s “entertainment” industry sinks to a new low.

FYI Television, of which I’d never even heard until now, has greenlighted a new TV show on spouse-swapping, otherwise known as adultery, called The Seven Year Switch.

FYI (stylized as fyi,) is a digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by A&E Networks, a joint venture between the Disney–ABC Television Group subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company and the Hearst Corporation.

Lisa de Moraes reports for Deadline, April 24, 2015, that FYI’s The Seven Year Switch, named after the 1950s Marilyn Monroe movie The Seven Year Itch, is an eight-episode series in which four married couples “at a crossroads in their relationship” “bravely” put their marriage on the line by shacking up with a “new partner” for two weeks.

They will eat, live and “sleep” commit adultery with total strangers, the network said. Relationship experts will help guide the adulterous couples through the process. At the end of their “experimental marriages” adultery, the married couples will reunite and decide whether to divorce or renew their vows.

Gena McCarthy, SVP Programming and Development at FYI, described it as an experiment to determine whether absence really does make the heart grow fonder. Blah, blah, blah.

The Seven Year Switch is produced by Kinetic Content for FYI. Chris Coelen, Karrie Wolfe and Cat Rodriguez are executive producers for Kinetic Content.  Gena McCarthy and Liz Fine serve as executive producers for FYI.

After flag desecration incident, Valdosta State University students rally to support American flag

Earlier this morning, I published a post on students from the University of Florida at Gainsville and Emory University desecrating the American flag by urinating on the symbol of our country, and dissing military veterans by spitting and throwing beer cans at them.

Commenter threepercent1775 reminded us that not all members of the iY Generation (those born after 1990) are disrespectful, unpatriotic and politically ignorant.

I found a video of college students rallying in support of the flag at Valdosta State University students in Georgia. The video was posted on April 20, 2015, by Amanda Ann on her Facebook page with the comment:

“So this is what I stumbled upon coming out of my class on campus today.”

Amanda is studying early childhood education at Valdosta State University, the same campus where an Air Force veteran, Michelle Manhart, was detained by campus police for interfering with a group of Black student protesters who defiled the American flag by walking on it.

Facebook does not enable me to save Amanda’s video to my hard-drive so that I can post the video on Fellowship of the Minds. Nor is the video on YouTube. You can see the video for yourself by going to Amanda’s Facebook page or on Clash Daily.

Here’s a screenshot I took from the video:

Valdosta State U students support American flag

There is such an uproar over the April 17 flag-trampling incident that Valdosta State University is shut down today in preparation for a huge demonstration.

Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress told the Valdosta Daily Times that thousands of people who “just want to come down here and support the American flag” were expected to descend on Valdosta State University at 1:30 p.m. ET.

College students spit on wounded veterans, urinate on American flag

Our DCG has been doing a series of satirical posts on the idiocy and know-nothingness of the iY Generation — Americans born after 1990 whose world is all about the latest technology of iPhones and iPads, thus the “iY” Generation. (See the most recent post here.)

It’s one thing for the iY to be stupid and woefully ignorant, but some of them have crossed the line when they insult, spit on, and hurl objects at America’s wounded military veterans.

That’s precisely what happened last weekend in Panama Beach, Florida.

Warrior Beach Retreat

Chris Martin reports for IJReview, April 23, 2015, that the semi-annual Warrior Beach Retreat was held in Panama City, Florida, to honor American veterans who were wounded in battle, as well as their families and caregivers.

Many were staying at the Laketown Wharf Resort hotel.

Members of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity from both the University of Florida in Gainesville and Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, were also at the hotel for their spring formal.

There were numerous reports of college students:

  • Making inappropriate comments toward veterans and their spouses.
  • Disrespecting and defiling the American flag by urinating on the flag, breaking them off of vets’ vehicles, ripping them out of the ground.
  • Throwing beer and other objects off balconies at veterans and their vehicles.

Linda Cope, the founder of Warrior Beach Retreat, said some of the students “were urinating on the American flag.” Nicholas Connole, a wounded veteran who attended the retreat, said “They actually spit on me, and my service dog as well…. It hurts.”

After the incident, Cope received letters from both universities’ administrations.

Emory University denied any culpability on the part of their students, saying in their letter that “To date, no evidence has been found to implicate Emory students in these reported incidents.”

But Cope is not convinced by Emory’s denial. She points out “There were too many students from Emory for none of them to be involved… This denial is a slap in the face of veterans.”

For his part, University of Florida President W. Kent Fuchs promised in a letter to Cope that “We are pursuing an investigation of the matter to learn… whether disciplinary action will be needed.” To which Cope replied, “Do your investigation, but I want to know what you’re going to do… I’m hoping that this will make a dramatic change in their life to realize they do not need to take the sacrifice and the service of these men and women in vain.”

In contrast to the administrations of the two universities, the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity was more forthcoming. In a letter to Cope, the fraternity states:

We have suspended the operations of the chapter until close of this investigation. Individuals found to have violated our membership standards or our values will be removed from the organization effective immediately.

No criminal charges for the incident have been filed, nor student suspensions issued, thus far.

The Conversation We Need To Be Having About Race: “I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back”

morrison

Huffington Post: When Toni Morrison writes, we read. And when she speaks, we make damn sure to listen.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Telegraph, Morrison — who latest novel God Help The Child was published this month — shared her thoughts on the racial disparities that exist in the American justice system. Morrison explained how she will know when these disparities no longer exist, and why talking about race is a very different thing from talking about racism.

“People keep saying, ‘We need to have a conversation about race,’” Morrison told The Telegraph. Top of Form

“This is the conversation. I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back,” she said. “And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, ‘Is it over?’, I will say yes.”

Racial identity and culture are topics that serve as the foundation for many of Morrison’s novels. The reality of being a black woman in the United States is something the Pulitzer and Nobel prize-winning author knows all too well.

“Race is the classification of a species. And we are the human race, period,” she said. “But the other thing –- the hostility, the racism — is the money-maker. And it also has some emotional satisfaction for people who need it.”

Someone who knows a thing or two about money making...

Someone who knows a thing or two about money making…

Morrison echoed the idea that there is the idea that there is no such thing as race on a November episode of the “The Colbert Report.”

None. There is just a human race — scientifically, anthropologically,” Morrison told Colbert. “Racism is a construct, a social construct… it has a social function, racism.”

Michelle Obama tells kids she used to beat up her older brother & cousins

0.58Mooch dancing at a Ellen DeGeneres TV show in March 2015 (see “Is this Michelle Obama’s weenie?”)

Yesterday, April 22, 2015, FLPOS conducted a question and answer session with children during the White House’s annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”

There were the usual questions about what it’s like living in the White House and who was her favorite person whom she’d met, to which Mooch gave the usual expected answers.

The only strange thing she said was in response to a boy named Derrell who asked, “How was it like . . . when you were a kid?”:

“When I was a kid? You know, I had a normal childhood. I grew up in Chicago…. I was kind of a tomboy when I was little, because I had a big brother and I used to box with him. My father used to box, so he bought us both boxing gloves. My brother had big ones, I had little ones. And I used to beat up my brother and my cousins. I loved baseball and softball…. But otherwise, I was just a regular little girl.”

Mooch’s brother is Craig Robinson, who is older than 51-year-old Mooch by l year 10 months. He stands 6 feet 6 inches and is a former head men’s basketball coach at Oregon State University and Brown University, and a star forward as a player at Princeton University in the early 1980s. He currently works as an analyst for ESPN.

Now let the jokes about Michael, err, Michelle begin. LOL

University Army ROTC made to wear red high heels to “raise awareness” about rape

Dr. Eowyn:

Obama’s debasement of the once mighty U.S. military continues . . . .

Put simply, there is no need to have our male soldiers and ROTC cadets wear red high heels to “raise awareness” about the sexual abuse of women. How many women do you know actually wear high heels these days? I don’t.

But if the goal is to debase and feminize men, that’ll do it.

Originally posted on Consortium of Defense Analysts:

The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a college-based program for training commissioned officers of the United States Armed Forces.

Two days ago, an Arizona State University ROTC cadet posted this on the U.S. Army sub-page of the popular Reddit.com website:

Reddit ROTC red heelsThe message claims that “tomorrow morning” (April 21, 2015), the poster’s “entire ROTC battalion” will be forced to “walk a mile” dressed in ACU (Army combat uniform) and red high heels “to promote awareness for sexual abuse on campus.”

Juan Leon of IJReview followed up the Reddit message with tweets by Temple University’s Army ROTC of male cadets wearing red high heels:

Here are more images of cadets wearing red high heels on Temple University Army ROTC’s Facebook page:
