• Man ‘Ordered to Pay his Ex-Wife £142,000 as Compensation for 27 Years of Household Chores’

Man ‘ordered to pay his ex-wife £142,000 as compensation for 27 years of household chores’

June 19, 2019

An Argentinian man has been ordered to pay his ex-wife £142,000 because she left her career to raise their children and do chores during their 29-year marriage.

The woman, identified only as ML, is now 70 and has an economics degree but is considered too old to get a job.

Argentina’s National Appeal Court ruled that the woman faced financial hardship following the separation, while the man, also 70, had ‘a good time’.

They got married in 1982 before separating 27 years later, in 2009, and divorcing in 2011.

• Conservative Christian Preacher Stephen Allwine Thinks Murdering His Wife Better Than Divorcing Her

Conservative Christian Preacher Stephen Allwine Thinks Murdering His Wife Better Than Divorcing Her

I watched a true-crime program about a guy named Stephen Allwine.

Stephen Allwine, and his wife, Amy, belonged to a conservative Christian church. I believe the show said they attended the Church of God.

The narrator doing the voice over on this show explained that the Allwine’s denomination strongly disapproved of divorce, so rather than divorce his wife, Stephen murdered her.

You know we have one messed up interpretation of the Bible, and some very messed up theology, when churches and some Christians make divorce out to be so bad that it looks worse than murder.

Murder becomes preferable to divorce to some. That is where some Christian attitudes and legalism leads.

This is my second post like this on this blog – I did another one just like it awhile ago about another married Christian couple, where the husband hired men to kill his wife, because he belonged to a church that felt that divorce was almost an unforgivable sin.

This Allwine guy also had affairs on his wife. Prior to killing his wife, he was on the website for married cheaters: “Ashley Madison.”

Here are some links to news reports about Allwine’s murder of his wife:

Police: Man who cheated using Ashley Madison, tried hiring hit man on dark web in bid to murder wife

January 2018

A Minnesota preacher in a failing marriage, who failed in his attempt to hire a hitman using bitcoin on the dark web, also failed to convincingly stage his wife’s murder as a suicide — a final misstep that ultimately led to his arrest, officials said.

…The couple, who met at a Christian college and were active members of their church together also adopted a son.

Stephen Allwine, a religious man who served as a church elder and deacon at a United Church of God congregation also offered marriage counseling to couples having trouble.

People Taking Antidepressants After The Age of 60 Are ‘THREE TIMES More Likely To Get Dementia Because They May Cause Nerve Damage’

My disclaimer: I am NOT opposed to doctor-prescribed medications to treat mental health issues, in spite of the fact I do occasionally post content that is critical of such medications or of psychology or psychiatry. I am not opposed to the mental health profession, nor against medications, but, I am also not supportive of a view that any and all mental health treatments work for everyone.


People taking antidepressants after the age of 60 are ‘THREE TIMES more likely to get dementia because they may cause nerve damage’

June 2019

People taking antidepressants in middle or old age could have triple the risk of developing dementia, a study has found.

Antidepressants may damage or kill crucial nerve cells in the brain, researchers claimed in a study of more than 71,000 people.

Rates of dementia were found to be 3.4 times higher among people who took thedepression drugs after the age of 60.

• How Male Supremacy Led to Murder by S. Hendrix

The following article is about Scott Paul Beierle, who hated women, and who one day walked into a Florida yoga studio and shot several women – at least two of whom died.

How Male Supermacy Led to Murder

by Steve Hendrix, June 2019

Snippets:

…His name was actually Scott Paul Beierle, a 40-year-old former FSU graduate student who had driven 250 miles for a yoga class in the town where he had twice been arrested for groping female students and banned from campus.

Beierle was an avowed hater of women, a man who repeatedly grabbed women in real life and fantasized about raping and killing them in the horrific collection of lyrics, poetry and novels he began writing as a teenager.

His interactions with the opposite sex had gotten him fired from teaching jobs, booted from the Army and hauled before the principal of his high school.

He traced his fury at women — “Just beneath their blushing lashes and their innocent smiles lies the most rancid and putrid, sickening essences” — to the girls who both aroused and frustrated him in eighth grade.

D-Day’s Forgotten Woman by Cal Thomas

Oh, complementarians and other sexists won’t like this. They don’t like real-life and biblical examples of women who don’t live live the way they think women should live life. Examples like these are so inconvenient to their worldview and prejudices.

Without the daring and heroism of Virginia Hall, the war might have been prolonged

by Cal Thomas
June 5, 2018

Observances of the 75th anniversary of D-Day are properly focusing on the troops and the architect of Operation Overlord, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who freed Europe from Hitler and his Nazi hordes.

One person — a woman — has not received the credit she deserves for her efforts with the French Resistance. Without her daring and heroism, the war would most assuredly have been prolonged and many more lives would have been lost.

Her name was Virginia Hall and her story is told in a new book by Sonia Purnell titled “A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II.” The title does not exaggerate Virginia’s contributions to the Allied victory.

• Blocked From Using My Daisy Twitter Account (June 2019)

Well, this is annoying

Twitter locked me out of my Twitter account about two days ago.

Without warning I was just quickly locked out, and taken to a page that says, “We have detected unusual activity on your account, so we are locking it down.”

I think their page said this is a temporary situation?

I was using my account as I always do – just RTing interesting articles, I commented on someone else’s Tweets.

Shortly before I was booted off, I did send two links to internet sexist Matt Walsh – maybe he reported me for harassment, and that is what got me blocked?

How Photoshop Artists Turn Undercover Facebook Cops Into 14-Year-Old Girls

by T Brewster, May 2019

Police departments across America are turning to Photoshop artists to transform undercover cops into fake teenage boys and girls so they can snare child predators on Facebook and other major platforms.

…. A forensic art

Sources from the policing community tell Forbes that it’s not fancy software that carries out the age regression—it’s in-house forensic artists using old tools like Photoshop.
