From Upworthy: Bill Nye takes a whack at dispelling the myths surrounding child mortality and foreign aid.
Kudos to Bill Nye. What he does not cover is that the majority of the foreign aid we do give is military aid.
From Daily Kos: The iron curtain of the Supreme Court was breached on Wednesday. Activists from the the group 99Rise entered the Supreme Court chamber. After videoing the session where the justice can be clearly seen, one of the activists stood up. He said the following before he was accosted by the Supreme Court security detail.
Kudos to the protestors. What they said is true.

America: Land I Love In Christian Perspective laments that the death penalty, and thus the sanctity of life, have become less hip. Back in the good old days, “because people believed in the sanctity of human life, most states practiced capital punishment.”
A Beka Book knows what God was thinking when he killed people for crimes like prostitution, bearing false witness, and not crying out while being raped (if you are betrothed): “Most people believed God instituted capital punishment to discourage murder and to teach mankind the value of human life.”
This is just one of seven absurd things Republicans are gutting public education to teach to children. Click through for the other six.
