A group of young men has been posting videos on YouTube, showing them patrolling the streets of predominately Muslim areas and harassing people whom they think are not ‘conforming to the practices of Islam’.
The group leaders have called for impostr
Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse had to rethink his research after failing to find any young men who didn’t already look at porn
Instead his study had to focus on porn viewing behaviors of his subjects
He found that single men typically spend about 40 minutes viewing porn three times a week
Meanwhile men in committed relationships averaged 20 minute porn viewing sessions 1.7 times a week
A study into how porn affects men had [...]
Large U.S. cities that the rest of the world used to look at in envy are now being transformed into gang-infested hellholes with skyrocketing crime rates. Cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis, New Orleans and Oakland were once bustling with economic activity, but as industry has fled those communities poverty has exploded and so has criminal activity. Meanwhile, financial problems have caused all of those cities [...]
When are we finally going to admit that we have a very serious problem with this generation of young men in America? We have failed them so dramatically that it is hard to put it into words. We have raised an entire generation of young males that don’t know how to be men, and many of them feel completely lost. Sometimes they feel so lost that they “snap” in [...]

An Alabama man accused of plotting to wage violent jihad in a foreign country was prepared to kill Americans if the situation arose, an FBI agent testified.
Based on the testimony and other factors, U.S. Magistrate Judge Katherine “Kit” Nelson ordered Randy “Rasheed” Wilson held in jail pending trial. She rejected defense arguments that the prosecution case amounts to little more than loose talk among young men who had [...]
BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Police search for two men after a brazen attack on an Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) bus. A teenager is beaten repeatedly and she says no one on the bus did anything to stop it.
Kai Jackson explains, the student now fears for her safety.

From Zero Hedge:
Remember when we said two months ago that one way or another the market will need to tumble to enforce the chain of events that lead to Spain demanding the bailout which has long been priced in, and (especially after yesterday’s violent protest) Rajoy handing in his resignation?
Well, it’s “another.”
After nearly 3 months of suspending reality, in hopes to not “rock the boat” until the U.S. presidential election, [...]
More young adults are leaving their parents’ homes to take a chance with college or a job. Across the nation, people are on the move again after putting their lives on hold and staying put. Once-sharp declines in births are leveling off, and poverty is slowing.
A new snapshot of census data provides sociological backup for what economic indicators were already suggesting: that the nation is in a tentative, fragile [...]
It would be so fun to drive around in one of those Google street view cars, wouldn’t it? Happily capturing the world around you so it can be carefully digitized and archived for everyone with an Internet connection to see. Except for like, when you drive through a rough urban area and happen to have a large gun pointed at you.
A Redditor published a screencap from a Google Maps street view camera today that [...]
TEHRAN — Expressing anger at the film mocking Muhammad that has triggered protests across the Middle East, roughly 400 young men and women gathered Thursday near the Swiss embassy in Tehran, chanting, “Death to the United States and death to Israel and death to England!”
The protests had been called to take place at the Swiss embassy because it represents American diplomatic interests in Iran. Riot police and ordinary officers cordoned off the [...]
Why Does The U.S. Government Treat Military Veterans Like Human Garbage?
The way that the U.S. government treats military veterans is absolutely disgraceful. Men and women that have given everything for this nation are literally being treated like human garbage by their own government. After watching how vets are treated, it is absolutely amazing that anyone is still volunteering to be a part of the military. We pay those in the military [...]

It looks like parents everywhere were right about the importance of brushing your teeth. They may just not have realised why.
A study has confirmed what we already know – that a white and evenly spaced set of teeth makes people seem more attractive. But it has also explained the reason.
It is because teeth are the human equivalent of a peacock’s tail – a sign of health and genetic quality designed [...]
Two children have died and 435 people were hospitalised after eating food during a Ramadan festival party.
Five of those in hospital were said to be critical after eating at the same ‘iftaar’ event – when Muslims are allowed to break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan.
All of the victims were taken to ID Hospital at Beliaghata, where the six-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy died.

Israel’s opposition leader Shaul Mofaz, who until last week served as deputy prime minister to Benjamin Netanyahu, gave a broad hint on Monday that the prime minister intends to launch a military strike against Iran.
Mofaz, who led his Kadima party out of the coalition last week, declared that Kadima wanted no part in “operational adventures” planned by Netanyahu, which he said would endanger Israelis.
“Kadima will not set out on operational [...]
A deeply divided House voted late Wednesday to continue letting the Pentagon use taxpayer money to sponsor sports leagues and teams — a victory chiefly for NASCAR, which had fought feverishly to maintain tens of millions of dollars that go to some of its teams every year.
A liberal-conservative coalition had fought to ax the spending, arguing that at a time of trillion-dollar deficits the military shouldn’t be exempt from cuts. [...]
A gruesome new video which appears to show Muammar Gaddafi’s dead body being abused by rebels has surfaced online.
In the shocking clip, which was posted to YouTube on Monday, high-spirited demonstrators apparently use the Libyan dictator’s corpse as a ventriloquist’s doll.
The footage came to light after a Syrian activist linked to it on Twitter, aiming a threat at Syria’s leader Bashar Al Assad.
Warning: graphic content

“Greece’s once-thriving sex industry has become the latest victim of the country’s debt crisis as Greeks spend less on erotic toys, pornography and titillating underwear.”
“About 50 people, almost all young men, lined up on Friday as the Athens Erotic Dream – Greece’s biggest sex fair – opened its gates in a nondescript building squeezed against a highway on the outskirts of the capital.”
“But a return to the drachma currency [...]

ATHENS, May 27 (Reuters) – Greece’s once-thriving sex industry has become the latest victim of the country’s debt crisis as Greeks spend less on erotic toys, pornography and titillating underwear.
About 50 people, almost all young men, lined up on Friday as the Athens Erotic Dream – Greece’s biggest sex fair – [...]
WASHINGTON (AP) — The 2010 census missed more than 1.5 million minorities after struggling to count black Americans, Hispanics, renters and young men, but was mostly accurate, the government said Tuesday.
The Census Bureau released an extensive assessment of its high-stakes, once-a-decade headcount of the U.S. population. Based on a sample survey, the government analysis has been a source of political controversy in the past over whether to “statistically adjust” census [...]
DETROIT (WJBK) — On a well kept Detroit block, mowing the lawn on a Tuesday afternoon is nothing out of the ordinary and, sadly, either is what happened next.
“They stopped and asked if that was Curtis down there. I said, ‘Yes.’ And then they started walking back towards me. Then they [sped] up and with a gun in his hand,” said Stanley Knox.

Wave after wave of young men surged forward to take turns punching and kicking their victim.
The victim’s friend, a young woman, tried to pull him back into his car. Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On [...]
Fox News broadcaster Geraldo Rivera has apologised to Trayvon Martin’s parents for his controversial ‘hoodie’ comments as thousands marched for the teenager in his hometown today.
The 69-year-old had caused outrage when he attributed the unarmed 17-year-old’s shooting to his wardrobe choice saying ‘I think the hoodie is as much responsible for Trayvon Martin’s death as George Zimmerman was.’
Rivera invited Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin onto his show on Sunday night where [...]
Fox News just reported the estimated death toll in Syria to be as high as 8,000 of its own people.
Although it was not said, the way I interpreted it is that the solution to the problem is an invasion by the UN (America) to kill the terrible dictators and anyone who supports them. Just like Iraq we won’t be out done by a foreign government killing thousands when we’re [...]
Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.”
“His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.
The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson [...]
