Teens send nude pics to one other, face kiddie porn charges

Teens send nude pics to one other, face kiddie porn charges

Another case of this abhorrent practice of treating sexually misbehaving teens as if they were children/criminals/monsters.

Two girls from Greensburg, who police say are "14 or 15" years old, allegedly sent nude photos to two boys who are slightly older than them (16 or 17) using their cell phones. The photos were discovered in October after one of the youngsters was caught using a cell phone during school hours—a violation of school rules—and had the phone taken away. The photos were discovered at that time—I didn't know teachers could go snooping through your cell phone, either—and turned over to police.

"It was a self portrait taken of a juvenile female taking pictures of her body, nude," Greensburg Police Department captain George Seranko told WPXI News. "Taking nude pictures of yourself, nothing good can come out of it."

. . .

Though the discovery was made several months ago, the Greensburg Police Department apparently decided to arrest and charge the teenagers this week. According to the police, the two girls are being charged with manufacturing, disseminating, or possessing child pornography, while the two boys are being charged with possession of child porn.

"Nothing good can come of it," is what the police captain said. Seriously? I think tons of good things can come of it. Namely, the people sending their images could get laid. Isn't that what most teens are hoping for?

$800K of our tax money pays for this abstinence clown to lie to our kids

Think Progress -- Your federal tax dollars are going to abstinence-only clowns.

Thanks to George W. Bush and a complicit Congress, we currently spend $1.5 billion a year to fund abstinence-only until marriage sex education in our public schools. And yes, that money goes to people like Derek Dye, as he is employed by the Elizabeth New Life Center that received a $800,000 CBAE grant in 2007 to promote abstinence until marriage. His qualifications? A “Bachelor of Fun Arts” from Barnum Bailey Clown College, and an abstinence educator certification that can be purchased for $50.

The Manhattan Project (the whole movie)

Hulu - The Manhattan Project - Watch the full feature film now.

Hulu describes this film as "A high school student builds his own atomic bomb in an effort to expose the fact that the government is secretly building nuclear weapons in his home town." but what I remember is this: badass teen nerd pumps his mother's boyfriend about the security system at the local nuclear power plant then uses a clever array of gadgets (including using two frisbees to fool motion detectors) to steal fissionable material and build his own basement nuke. Which he almost detonates.

This is one of my favorite Heroic Nerd movies from my childhood. (See also, Real Genius, Pump Up the Volume, My Science Project)

Rick Warren: "Follow Jesus like Nazis followed Hitler"

Bruce Wilson: Follow Jesus Like Nazis Followed Hitler, Rick Warren Tells Stadium Crowd

During his Anaheim stadium speech Warren, sometimes called 'pastor Rick' talked about a number of visions and communications he had received from God. By calling on his church members to follow Jesus with the fanatical dedication with which the Nazis, or Hitler Youth, gave to Adolf Hitler, Rick Warren appeared to be in effect asking his Saddleback members to be fanatically dedicated to Warren's own leadership, given his role in divining God's intent for the Saddleback church flock. During his speech, Rick Warren also explained that God had personally instructed him to seek, for the good of the world, more influence, power and fame.

Warren moved on, from his celebration of Nazi dedication to purpose, and held up Lenin, and Chinese Red Guard efforts during the Cultural Revolution, as behavioral examples for his Saddleback flock, whom Warren called on to carry out a "revolution".

Concluding his motivational speech, the Saddleback Church founder instructed his ranks in the stadium to hold up signs, from their official programs, with the preprinted message "whatever it takes". Warren then introduced, as leader of the first nation on Earth in which the P.E.A.C.E. Plan would be implemented, Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

And then, of course, things got worse.
