But if this ain’t a mutha-fuh-ya, I don’t know what is.
The short end of the story is, Caucasian attorney and former Virginia House delegate Joe Morrissey, 57, who was once disbarred and even lost his freedom for the crime of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” called the media together for a press conference where he admitted to being the baby-daddy of 19-year-old Myrna Pride‘s 2-1/2-month-old son, Chase.
Pride sat by Morrissey’s side at the event, and chimed in on at least two occasions of the (edited) clip (scroll down to see it). Once, when she stated their sexual relationship did not happen before she was of legal age; and then again as she supported his claim that “age is not a factor in their ‘relationship.'”
Which makes believing their claims that he waited until she was of age, a real stretch of the imagination.
By the latest calculations, Morrissey now has four children by four different women.
He appeared nervous during the press conference; especially when a reporter asked him if he planned on marrying Pride. Continue reading →
*It may be easy to look at someone suffering from Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia, and think it is a choice they made.
Our minds may immediately shift to the belief that these people just want to be skinny. They are vain and feel this is what will make them beautiful.
They can change this if they really want to.
Oh, if it were that easy.
While these eating disorders may have started with the desire to “look better” — especially for those in the public eye who feel the need to conform to a certain standard of beauty — it certainly doesn’t end there.
And the most surprising thing to learn about this eating disorder is that it has absolutely nothing to do with food.
Do you really think that a grown woman who has allowed her weight to wither down to 40 pounds, is satisfied with the way she looks?Continue reading →
*What could be so bad for a child aged 5-11 years, that he or she would commit suicide?
Your guess is as good as the researchers who study this.
But its something we would never imagine. Before we get to what the “experts” have to say, indulge me for a minute please. Just let me throw this out there.
This is what made me go, “Oh, I can see how that would happen.”
You know all of the stress a single parent can be under. Children feel energy. Sometimes they hear mommy and daddy fussing. A lot of times mommy is not happy. Daddy is mad. Sometimes we are short with our children. We snap at them when they ask the simplest question, because we’re having a bad day. The kid starts to think, ‘Maybe mommy and daddy would be happy if I were not here.’
Does that make it any clearer for you?
Yes, I ‘went there’ as I began to read up on this topic, and it is very disconcerting, to say the least.
Now, here’s what the experts have to say.
The same ones who have concluded that suicide rates among elementary-age black children have nearly doubled since the 1990’s. Continue reading →
