It Keeps Coming Back

Here's one for the what the fuck file.

A woman went to court and sued her soon to be ex husband for giving her herpes after he had an affair. The jury awarded her more than $2 million in damages!

WTF?

How the fuck do you prove something like that? She'd have to prove that she never once had any extra marital hook ups. Plus, you'd need to prove that the husband didn't have asymptomatic herpes (which is really common) for years before they got married.

Fuck! If a dude has enough money where he can be ordered to pay a couple million bucks, you'd think he'd have the cash to hire a lawyer who could get this laughed out of court.

The Twighlight Zone

Anyone who wants their daily dose of rage needs to read Why Do Non Conservatives Exist?

Some excerpts:

" * 20%: did not hear about conservative principles until after they made up their mind and, perhaps due to pervasive societal bias, refuse to reconsider
* 10%: genuinely lack of desire to find the truth, and instead desire attention, praise by liberal teachers, getting along by going along, and not standing up to liberal bullies
* 10%: refuse to forgive themselves and let go of their past mistakes and image
* 10%: believe myths created around government programs like the "New Deal" that liberal policies create jobs instead of destroying them and depriving people of liberty through government control.
* 10%: fooled by the demonizing of conservatives and mistakenly feel that conservative benefits are available only to those who are from an intact family or privileged background
* 10%: refuse to rise above their personal temptations, often self-destructive, and hate conservatives who criticize their self-indulgent behavior
* 10%: feel that they deserve to make more money than they do, as in public school teachers and university professors, and refuse to rise above self-interest
* 10%: harbor a grudge against a conservative, typically a parent but sometimes an ex-spouse, and refuse to forgive or rise above the animosity
* 5%: like an anarchist, genuinely want to believe in and propagate destructive ideas
* 5%: are susceptible to marketing and suggestion to an overlarge degree."

They also "document" what can cause people to lose their liberal ideas and embrace the true path of conservatism:

"What triggers reconsideration of liberal beliefs? Here are some estimates:

* 25%: raising or teaching children, and realizing how destructive liberal values are to many of them
* 15%: a religious conversion followed by taking the Bible to heart
* 10%: a loss of a loved one that resulted from accepting or promoting liberal values, as in losing a loved one to crime caused by pornography, drug addiction, gambling, etc.
* 10%: a new friendship with someone who is conservative, and realizing how much good flows from the conservative values[1]
* 10%: simply by maturing and seeing liberalism's impact around them, and realizing what they were taught as youth was wrong
* 5%: a desire to learn the truth, and a dislike for those who mislead
* 5%: a genuine divine experience that can not be explained.
* 5%: using conservative values to overcome an addiction, and then realizing the benefits of conservative values in many other ways
* 5%: taking a truthful course in economics, or learning it in the workforce"
