For the Weekend: A List of Must-Read Articles

There's been an unusually high amount of must-read items zipping through cyberspace these last few days and so I thought I'd list a few for you to look over sometime during the weekend.

* "Ten Pieces of Bad Economic News the Media's Covering Up"

Except for number ten, all the bad economic news below came out this week -- much of it today.

And this explains why the corrupt media is making all of our eyes glaze over as they enter day  11,485 of demanding Romney release his tax returns and Bain-Bain-Bain.

By focusing on nonsense and on Romney, the media can protect Obama from what you see below --which is an economy and Americans in very real trouble...

Read on and see just what those ten lowlights are that the mainstream media tried to keep from you. It's here at Breitbart, courtesy of John Nolte.

* "Scientology and Forced Abortion" by Tony Ortega at the Village Voice.

* "Doctors Kill In 14% of Dutch Deaths"

* "Obama Administration’s Harassment of Pro-Lifers Gets Personal"

Here is a creepy story about how the feds put their best "fright face"on when they knocked at the door of Jill Stanek's son-in-law. Note in particular the invasive and unwarranted questions the FBI agents asked.

Wow. Coming to a pro-lifer's door near you? Like I said, this stuff is creepy.

* "Target Sells Gay ‘Wedding’ Cards"

* "Adult Fiction E-books Outsold Hardcovers In 2011"

* "Planned Parenthood's ‘Comprehensive Sex Education’ Exposed"

* "Teenagers 'Can Be Corrupted' by Hollywood Sex Scenes

Psychologists concluded that teenagers exposed to more sex on screen in popular films are likely to have sexual relations with more people and without using condoms.

The study, based on nearly 700 popular films, found that watching love scenes could "fundamentally influence" a teenager's personality.

The researchers, from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, concluded youngsters were more prone to take risks in their future relationships.

They also concluded that for every hour of exposure to sexual content on-screen, participants were more than five times more likely to lose their virginity within six years…

* "Don't Die in 2013: Confiscatory 55% Death Tax Set to Take Effect"

* "Papering Over Obama’s Record"

* "Duluth Firefighter Explains Why She's Disagreeing With Her Union and Voting Yes for Marriage"

* "Top Ten Things Obama Has Not Released"

As the Obama campaign and the media continue to press Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns, and to suggest--without a shred of evidence--that he is a “felon,” it is worth noting how much critical information Barack Obama has withheld from view--both as a candidate in 2008, and during his term in office. Here is a Breitbart News top ten list of things that Obama has refused to release (a complete list would fill volumes)...

* "Federal Judge Gives Millions to Union off the Backs of Michigan’s Disabled"

* "CNN Four Days Late to Obama's Infamous 'You Didn't Build That' Remark"

Four days after President Obama insulted job creators by asserting "If you've got a business, you didn't build that; somebody else made that happen," CNN finally reported the controversial remarks, and only once the Romney campaign featured them in a campaign attack.

In contrast, when Romney surrogate John Sununu said on Tuesday morning that he wished "this President would learn how to be an American," it only took CNN a few hours to jump on the remarks. The network mentioned them every hour between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. and anchor Wolf Blitzer even brought Sununu on for an interview to explain himself.

The three major networks shared the same double standard when it came to ignoring Obama's quote, but CNN is a 24-hour news network and it did not touch the story all through the weekend...

* "The Oh, Oh, Ohhh-lympics!"

As a record 150,000 condoms are handed out to a host of super-attractive athletes, could London 2012 be the raunchiest games ever? -- Athletes will receive 15 condoms each for the 17-day festival -- 'I've seen athletes having sex out in the open, getting down and dirty on grass between buildings,' says U.S. women's goalie' -- You'd think they might want to save their energy. But it seems that Olympic athletes will be working up more of a sweat off the field than they will on it this Summer.

In a sign of what the world's fittest sportsmen and women get up to in the Olympic village, a record 150,000 free condoms - 15 for each competitor - have been made available to them.

The phenomenal outpouring of prophylactics means there will be 50 per cent more available to athletes in London than the 100,000 handed out at the last Olympics in Beijing in 2008...
