The threat to American democracy that Romney and Obama aren't talking about

The threat to American democracy that Romney and Obama aren't talking about | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it
It's called the civics gap. Only one-third of Americans can name all three branches of government. Education reform's focus on high-stakes testing has sidelined civics education.

 

This civics gap has carried through to the overall electorate: Only one-third of Americans can name all three branches of government; another third cannot name any. The United States ranks 120th out of 169 democracies in voter turnout, well into the bottom third.

More Witnesses Come Out Against Scott Galvin | The Ryno's Horn

More Witnesses Come Out Against Scott Galvin | The Ryno's Horn | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

After 3 long years, it seemed the Horowitz family would finally find some justice for their lost brother and son. In 2008, Greg Horowitz killed himself, and left a suicide letter that accused Councilman Scott Galvin of molesting him when he was 12 years old. Back in 2008, Galvin claimed that he couldn’t recall when he met Greg, but offered that he and Greg had a consensual adult relationship in recent years. With no way to verify Greg’s horrific account, the case was closed.

 

Recently North Miami detectives reopened the investigation into molestation charges against the North Miami Councilman after more witnesses came forward and proved Galvin “may not have been truthful” when originally questioned about his involvement with Horowitz...

Paterno Family Statement Blames Everyone But Joe Paterno, Who Is To Blame

Paterno Family Statement Blames Everyone But Joe Paterno, Who Is To Blame | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

Via Deadspin:

 

The family of Joe Paterno has released a statement in response to the Freeh Report, declaring (preliminarily, pending a close reading) that the "underlying facts...are almost entirely consistent with what we understood them to be."

 

"Joe Paterno wasn't perfect," the family wrote. But he was a victim of "a great deceiver," and to whatever extent the head coach may have failed to report Jerry Sandusky's misdeeds, it was because "many people didn't fully understand what was happening and underestimated or misinterpreted events."

 

Many people, they say. This rhetorical device appears again and again in the statement: Sandusky "fooled everyone"....Paterno "should have pushed his superiors"...."Joe Paterno and everyone else." Joe Paterno—the indispensable head coach, he of the heroic bronze statue outside Beaver Stadium—was merely one body in a vast, confused, plural crowd.

 

The only way to keep believing in the Great Man, at this point, is to deny his importance. Here's how the statement winds up...

Miamians Have the Most Sex in America, According to Trojan Condom Survey

Miamians Have the Most Sex in America, According to Trojan Condom Survey | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

Via Miami New Times:

 

Either you're too busy staining your sheets with sweat and other bodily fluids to read this right now, or your secret suspicions that everyone else in town is constantly getting laid are about to be confirmed. According to a Trojan Condoms survey, Miami is America's sex capital. We rate first not only in sexual satisfaction but also in the number of times we get busy each year.

  

Seventy-three percent of Miamians say they're sexually satisfied, and on average we have sex 177 times a year. That means we're having sex just about every other day. Granted, if we're all shagging that much, it follows that we're all pretty damn satisfied about it.

 

Miamians also rank second for number of lifetime sexual partners, with 24 apiece, only one behind New Yorkers and Atlantans, who boast 25 bedroom buddies. Miamians also think about sex ten times a day, behind only Los Angelinos, who have dirty thoughts 13 times daily. Sixty-eight percent of Miamians also say they're sexually adventuresome, behind only Atlanta, with 71 percent...

Scott Galvin Still Works with Kids, Are You Kidding Me? | The Ryno's Horn

Scott Galvin Still Works with Kids, Are You Kidding Me? | The Ryno's Horn | Crap You Should Read | Scoop.it

It’s now been 3 years since Greg Horowitz succumbed to the pain and took his own life. That means it’s been 3 years since Scott Galvin was exposed in Greg’s suicide note for molesting him when he was a 12 year old boy.


Scott Galvin is City Councilman of North Miami. He is still in office, and he still works with kids. Are you kidding me?


I read about the accusations of molestation, as well as providing drugs and alcohol to kids, and was shocked. To be honest, I’m done being concerned whether Councilman Galvin is lying or telling the truth. My big concern now is how someone can keep a job working with children when such detailed accusations are brought against them from multiple young adults.
