The feminist Liberal government has decided, on behalf of all Canadians, to change the lyric of O Canada. Liberals in the Senate passed a bill this week, and just like that, without a national debate or any feedback from Canadians, the government will begin imposing the new lyrics to our anthem.

According to our politically correct overlords, the national anthem was sexist. Yes, sexist.

At government ceremonies, meetings and events, English Canadians will no longer hear all thy sons command, and instead will be subject to the horribly clunky and awkward all of us command.

This revision to our 104 year old anthem will supposedly make it neutral.

This is just the latest attack on our Canadian identity and national symbols in the name of political correctness and Liberal activism. Nothing is safe from the social justice warriors who are intent on whitewashing our history and ridding society of anything that could be interpreted by anyone as being offensive.

When it comes to Canada national anthem, though, the changes are based on a misreading of history and a misunderstanding of the English language. That because O Canada has always been gender neutral, despite what the hyper sensitive politically correct crowd may say.

According to Dr. Chris Champion, a Canadian historian and expert witness who addressed the Heritage Committee in 2016, our national anthem has always been inclusive of women.

In the context it was written,
kildare factory outlet 'Gender neutral' anthem strikes sour note
the term referred to all children, not just boys.

Only in today distorted political climate, where statues of Sir John A. Macdonald are deemed racist relics of white supremacy, no institution is safe. There is a growing movement of anti Western far left activists who are intent on dismantling every aspect of our civilization.

Alongside these activists, we have a Liberal government in Ottawa equally keen on tinkering with our national identity to suit their own impulses. What used to unite all Canadians and provide a joint sense of pride and patriotism is now being scorned, dismissed and outlawed.

Today they fighting against our first prime minister and our national anthem, tomorrow it could be our Bill of Rights, our education system or the very concept of being Canadian.

Despite these disturbing trends, however, we can take solace in the common sense of everyday Canadians.

Most Canadians aren convinced that our society is inherently racist, sexist and bigoted. When it comes to our national anthem, and the latest Orwellian attack on our language, Canadians overwhelmingly disagree with the need to make these changes.

A 2012 public opinion survey found that more than three quarters of Canadians believed our national anthem, as it was written, is a great source of national pride. A 2013 survey found that only 25% Canadians support making changes to the lyrics.

Our national anthem belongs to us, not to the ahistorical busybodies obsessed with political correctness and erasing our history. That is why many Canadians will continue to sing their national anthem with the lyrics they were raised singing.

travel wallet for women ‘Coming full circle’ with the Jonathan Birchfield Band

On a late December Friday night, my husband, a friend, and I headed to Twigs Restaurant in Blowing Rock to have dinner.

We had no idea we were in for an especially entertaining night. We knew Twigs provided live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays, but we didn’t think a thing about who the musicians might be until we saw a couple of familiar Catawba County faces: Greg Simmons and Jonathan Birchfield.

He called it coming full circle.

As a kid, Jonathan learned three chords from his dad, Ray Birchfield, of Conover, and then took off on his own, mastering the guitar and then hooking up with fellow young teens to form Catawba County’s own boy band, The Southern Knightz.

He was still just a kid when he discovered how much he liked performing in front of people. The first time was in the basement of the auditorium of Newton Conover Junior High School (now the location of Newton Conover City Schools’ central office and the Newton Conover Auditorium). He and his buddy Robert Kearns, who later became Cheryl Crow’s bass player, provided an impromptu concert for a small gathering in what Jonathan called “Coach (Jerry) Willard’s room.”

Then, with all the Knightz, including Greg Simmons on drums, 8th grader Jonathan performed in a talent show at Newton Conover High School. The audience was 400+ strong. Cale, popularized by Eric Clapton. Second was Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird.”

“At the end, the whole student body stood up,” Jonathan recollected, “which made me feel, ‘Man, this might be something I want to do.'”

In high school, Jonathan played with the Taylorsville based Harry Deal and the Galaxies. After graduation, he, Greg, another Knightz guy Shane Cooper (who later founded DeFeet International), and Stuart Garmon from Burke County comprised a band they named Graffiti. “We played colleges up and down the East Coast,” said Jonathan. “We were the original 80s cover band.”

At 19, Jonathan struck out on his own and headed to Nashville where he played with a number of groups and started concentrating on writing music “a Jackson Browne/James Taylor type song writing,” said Jonathan.

From Nashville, Jonathan “stayed on the road for years with a band called Public Domain,” he explained. “Key West, Hilton Head, Charleston.”

“(During that time) is when I got associated with Jimmy Buffet,” Jonathan continued. “Later on, he would use my band, Jonathan Birchfield Band, in shows in Key West and elsewhere.”

Jonathan did background vocals on three of Jimmy Buffet’s albums. “I got to know him as a person, not a celebrity,” said Jonathan. “He’s a great guy.”

Returning to Nashville for 13 years, Jonathan worked with a number of big names, including Brad Paisley and Josh Turner.

Jonathan continued writing. In 1997, he released his first album All Points in Between. “All acoustic,” Jonathan called it.

His second CD, Enjoy the Ride,” came out a decade later. Jonathan characterized it as “all electric and more rockin’.” A few years after that, he toured the Midwest and New England, “pulling a camper,” he said, “promoting Enjoy the Ride. I played solo shows and brought out the band occasionally.”

At one point in his career, Jonathan somewhat veered away from music and got into the audio production side of TV. Said Jonathan, “I got to travel the world, including Russia for the Sochi (2014) Olympics.”

His music wasn’t dead, though. “Through ESPN and the Golf Channel, I had some songs that were used on air. One in particular was ‘Shoot Out Saturday Night.’ It was inspired by Dale Jarrett and the Hickory Motor Speedway. It was used two seasons on ESPN’s Saturday night races.”

And he got to go to one of the coolest places on earth. “Through TV, I got to put my name in the hat to go to Everest to film for Discovery’s production about (mountain climber) Joby Ogwyn’s attempt to wingsuit (fly) off the summit of Everest.” Jonathan’s name was drawn and off he went.

The jump was to have taken place May 11, 2014. Tragically, an avalanche that killed 16 Sherpas “stopped everything,” said Jonathan, who described the situation as “heartbreaking circumstances to be in.”

Soon after, Jonathan moved to Charlotte where he was, as he stated, “working a lot in TV and playing music in my spare time.” Jonathan said he began to feel that “people forgot that I played music.”

Things were about to change for Jonathan, and not in exactly the way he expected. He, Greg Simmons, and Shane Cooper were playing at the Hickory Tavern one night in 2015 when Jonathan looked up, and as he explained it, “There she was.”

The “she” was Dr. Dana Chambers, Hickory family medicine specialist. A year and a half later, the musician and physician were married.

So now Jonathan’s back in Catawba County, fully committed to his music and to his community. He’s serving as a consultant for the Norman Coley Amphitheater, which will be built in Conover, and he sits on the board that oversees the Newton Conover Auditorium. “I want Hickory to be a music destination,” said Jonathan.

Currently, Jonathan’s writing music for a new album, and he’s in the planning stages of performing Aug. 18 at the Newton Conover Auditorium upstairs from the first place he played as a kid.

Discount mulberry handbags outlet sale Outlet ‘Dangerous job’ clears ice jam in Penns Creek

The jam cleared in the late morning and caused no further significant flooding downstream, according to Michelle Dietrich, Union County Emergency Management Coordinator.

Dave Gutelius of Gutelius Excavating drove a 50 ton bulldozer through the frozen water and with its blade, chopped and pushed away chunks of ice that clogged the creek following the recent thaw and re freeze.

“Never in my life did I ever crawl into something I didn’t understand what it would do or how it would react. It had to be done,” Gutelius said of the uncertainty of the virtual ice dam formed by thousands of hunks of ice.

Contractors worked an estimated combined eight hours Tuesday and Wednesday along and in the creek, with permission from the state Department of Environmental Protection. Two small islands with trees were removed.

West End Fire Co. ambulance and the rescue squad of the Mifflinburg Hose Co. responded on stand by in the event of an emergency during the ice breaking.

The creek jammed Friday, forcing water out of its banks and into adjacent fields and over roads. It cut off access to the bridge on Millmont Road between Creek Road and Canada Drive.

That eliminated public road access to an estimated 50 homes in Lewis and Hartley townships because two other bridges, Millmont Red Covered Bridge and the Glenn Iron Bridge, are closed for reconstruction.

Union County declared the situation an emergency. A private road opened but is only suitable for vehicles with four wheel drive. Plans were put in place to respond to any emergencies south of Penns Creek.

The ice formed peaks as high as 6 to 7 feet, Gutelius estimated. When portions were chopped and knocked loose,

there was no telling which way the ice and water would rush.

Gutelius didn’t take lightly the risk involved.

“It was crazy,” he said. “All that time I spent there trying to get through it the last two days and in 10 minutes, I saw the thing go down and start to go by me. That was it. The story was over.”

Except, not quite.

“We could see from the bridge where the ice jam broke, it got hung up within eyesight. The contractors got the equipment back into the creek and moved it away,” said Union County Commissioner John Showers.

Dietrich said spotters posted up downstream to monitor Penns Creek. S turns near Libby Lane were closely watched. By late Wednesday afternoon, Dietrich said there were no reports of additional flooding. Though some homes saw neighboring fields fill with water, Dietrich said there were no reports of homes having taken on flood water.

“Hooray to Dave Gutelius! What a courageous man,” said Canada Drive resident Ellen Kahler.

Kahler and neighbor Ann Koonsman rode a side by side all terrain vehicle to the Millmont Road bridge to see the ice gone for themselves. They wanted to tell their respective husbands they’d have an easier drive home after work.

“There’s a lot of ice yet in Penns Creek. A lot. This is just a touch of what’s in it,” Gutelius said.

A costly and potentially bruising campaign is taking shape over rent control in California, with deep pocketed Los Angeles activist Michael Weinstein bankrolling a proposed November ballot initiative to repeal a state law that sets tight limits on the type of housing covered under local rent control laws.”Nobody’s fighting for the tenant,” said Weinstein, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, who partly funded the Proposition 61, the 2016 fight over prescription drug costs that became the most expensive initiative that year, with total spending at roughly $130 million.As California confronts a historic housing crisis, low and middle income renters are being pushed out, even in cities with some form of rent control.The disruption is fueling the push by Weinstein and other tenants rights’ activists to overturn a state law that prevents cities and counties from adopting strong rent control laws.Read more: California stands by its right to set emission standardsProponents say they have been met with enthusiasm this year while gathering signatures for a proposed November ballot initiative that would repeal the 1995 Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act, which says rent control cannot apply to large amounts of housing, including all housing built after 1995, single family homes, condos and duplexes. If the proposed initiative is successful, efforts by local communities to strengthen existing rent control ordinances and pass new laws could drastically alter the housing market across California.”People are excited,” said Anya Svanoe, a spokeswoman for the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment,also behind the campaign. “This is the easiest signature gathering we’ve ever done. It’s telling . People are hungry for rent control and . to see solutions to the housing crisis that can provide immediate relief to themselves and their neighbors.”Critics, including the California Apartment Association, believe repeal would lead to “extreme versions” of rent control throughout the state, bringing new housing construction to a standstill. His argument that rent control deters new construction because it limits profit and financing options is backed by other powerful real estate interests and construction trades groups in Sacramento, including the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Building Industry Association.Supporters, on the street for just two weeks, have collected 100,000 signatures. They need 365,880 valid signatures by June to qualify for the November ballot. If the current law is repealed, any city or county in California could require rent control on any type of housing it chooses.The campaign, with real estate interests on one side and tenants’ rights activists on the other, could become the most expensive initiative this November.”Money wise, this could be the grand poobah of them all because of what’s at stake,” said Steve Maviglio, a Sacramento based Democratic political consultant. “On one side you have a multimillionaire fighting for rent control, and the (California) Apartment Association on the other . both sides have deep pockets, so it could be a very expensive battle. The question is whether it will overshadow other issues on the ballot designed to help housing.”More housing needed in stateHousing is a top concern among the state’s electorate. More than half of California voters say the state’s housing affordability crisis is so bad that they’ve considered moving, and 60 percent of likely voters support rent control, according to astatewide poll last fall. Both sides of the rent control battle have also poured money into ballot box fights in recent years.There is widespread agreement, among Democrats and Republicans and between pro growth activists and those concerned about tenant displacement, that California must build more housing to address its affordability problems. The stateneeds about 200,000 housing units per yearto keep pace with rising demand, though it is building an average of roughly 80,000 units per year.Rents in California,
mulberry bags outlet genuine 'Extreme' rent control could be coming to California
the most expensive in the nation, have gone up more than 40 percent in major metropolitan areas since 2015, according to a January housing analysis by the Public Policy Institute of California. Median rents for all types of rental housing range from $1,595 in Sacramento, to $4,395 in San Francisco, to $2,933 in Los Angeles, according to the real estate listing service Zillow.Nearly half of Californians 47 percent say the state’s high housing costs are a financial strain on themselves and their families, according to the Public Policy Institute analysis. That figure is higher among renters, with 61 percent saying they are financially burdened.Read more: 4 California lawmakers accused of misconduct; none punishedBackers of the Costa Hawkins repeal say building the housing California needs will take decades, and tenants facing big rent increases need help now.”There’s no building our way out of this crisis,” said Damien Goodmon, director of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s “Housing is a Human Right” campaign. “We have no illusion . that this will be costly and ugly.”The state Chamber of Commerce labeled a bill that also sought to repeal Costa Hawkins a “job killer.”It died earlier this year in the Assembly, setting up the ballot box fight.”I expect it to qualify,” said Allan Zaremberg, the Chamber’s president and CEO. “We’re concerned about increases in the cost of housing and being able to keep people in California. The consequences of a strong economy and an inability to keep up with the demand for housing is a problem we need to solve, but we believe that rent control diminishes investment in housing opportunities.”It costs more money to build (in California),” Zaremberg said. “If you can’t recover those costs, you’re less likely to put your money into a development.”Jeff Pemstein, a board member for the state Building Industry Association, acknowledged that economically thriving cities like San Francisco, which has rent control, have experienced a building boom, but he argued developers in other markets, like Sacramento, cannot absorb the high costs of construction, labor and permitting on top of rent control.”People will pay astronomical prices to live in niche markets like San Francisco. They are super desirable so you can afford to put up with a lot of inconvenience, but the vast majority of California cannot afford to do that,” said Pemstein, also division president for Towne Development of Sacramento, which finances all types of development including rental housing and single family homes.He said he’s financing the proposed initiative because he has witnessed firsthand what he perceives as consequences of the state’s housing problems.”We’re seeing a growing homelessness crisis, our employees have to travel farther and farther to work and people are being displaced by the thousands,” Weinstein said. “Everything the Legislature is doing is geared toward creating luxury housing, not preserving the housing stock for people who are low and moderate income.”

When lighting struck it came quite literally as a bolt from the blue. It was a morning of blue sky and one singular cloud. The fire was lit in the front room and I sat by the window on the phone to a friend. We spoke of Gretel’s book, a woman’s story of being struck by lighting. A Match to the Heart she called it. There was no thunder. No warning. Just the explosion as a bolt of lightning struck the house. The phone flew. The electrics went. The air ionized instantly. Over the course of the year, so many strikes, each one an ignition, each one a match to the heart. For better for worse each one sudden, unexpected. It seems this year, I was the woman whom lightning followed. To a surgery that went from difficult to just wrong. To the loss of two cats, long travelling companions of heart and soul. To suddenly finding a light of pure gold where and when least expected. To the night that light arrived yet again at my door not meaning to leave. And then with that light co creating a language seldom spoken. To the offer of a field I can with eyes closed still traverse. To travels through karma and visions of futures waiting to unfold. To a bridge that can not be burnt, only crossed. To a loved one’s fear, the one who fled without leaving. To flight not forewarned making misfortunes befall but leading however to crumbling walls. To a heart that restarts each time like a bolt from the blue. The clearing of old, the welcoming of new. With each strike another match to the heart.

Tonight I light candles in the window to the front. The window by which lighting arrived. I do not light candles to ward off other strikes, nor to cast upon the night prayers, wishes or dreams. Tonight I light candles and begin to say goodbye to the year of 2013. But the woman who wrote those words, and all words before it, eventually found her way forward despite hardship, despite anger,

despite grief. Since then much has transpired and this life continues on in Wales. How? We come together. And then? We heal one another. And in the healing we find our way home. How? Through love. Love is home and love is at home always waiting for us and willing to receive us with acceptance, with open arms, and with the deepest of recognition. Home takes us in without question without judging who how where why or when. How to find where we belong? How do we recognise home? To find that belonging is a blessing in itself. And once we find it we will know, deep within the very essence of our being, that this is indeed where we belong. It can be that we find our true belonging beyond the family we were born to. Or we may find our true belonging with a person we never imagined in our wildest of dreams even when we were brave enough to allow ourselves the freedom to dream wild dreams. If so, they can be overcome with courage and determination as we discover that in belonging there is both comfort and great freedom offered. And then, there we are finding ourselves finally with the family or the person, the one or ones who are ready to embrace us, accept us, to lift us and support us for who we are and for all we are. With them we find our belonging no matter how odd or unconventional that belonging may seem to the world beyond. With them we build the foundations of our future. Home takes us in. Home nurtures us closely and allows us to fly free at the same time. In finding our way home we find our way to that which will always sustain us love. Always love. Always sustaining. That is what it is about. Love. That is what it always comes to. Love. From beginning to end. Love. I mean, for sure it was me but not the me who is here and now. The woman who wrote these entries is gone. I don’t know when she will be back.

At last posting I was picking up after an intensive meditation course. There were some moments of both questions and brilliance afterwards. But I had also begun to withdraw from a pharmaceutical medication which I now refer to as “the drug from hell”. I was told that if I did not come off it I could die. I was told that coming off it could also be life threatening. Either way I had to come off it. For the next 8 months I damned the useless German doctor in Regensburg who put me on it after the septicaemia in 2001. I damned myself as well as to be so stupid as to blindly trust a doctor.

For the next 8 months I suffered through a nightmare of withdrawal that I can not explain to you unless you have lived in hell. And now, more than 6 months later, I am still living it. I am not who I once was. I am not sure that I like the woman who has emerged. I have yet to make friends with her and I’m not sure I really want to be friends with her yet. She is difficult and sometimes very angry.

I had to learn new words though, like myoclonus. I had to learn that the brain will try to heal. I learnt that if I didn line the edges of my bed with pillows, that for a time, at some point during the night I could end up on the floor. Will this change, eventually yes I believe it will.

I have learnt that if you tell people why you are struggling they tend to avoid you. I have learnt that I can find my self sobbing profoundly without advance notice and not know why. I have learnt that my spine is not being ripped out through my skin, it only feels that way. I have learnt that I can swing between here and hell within the space of a minute.

Will this change? Yes, I believe it will, eventually. It seems so alien and foreign right now. I do know that I need to spend time learning how to live from here on out. As for the rest? I don’t know.

Like staring into a mid December sun I am as feeble as the light it emits. So long gone from here and that was never my intention. Now, whole chunks of my life remain heartbreakingly treacherous so much so that I can not completely recount them for you.

left the blog at a time of an elderly parent’s slide into life threatening critical illness. At the best of times I can barely navigate my own health there was then hers and the nurses the intensive care the doctors the surgeons the surgeries the infections the blood clots the scans the procedures the nursing home the bills and there in the maelstrom was me the only child an ocean away trying to orchestrate some sense into madness while remaining too ill to travel.

After this was all to pass it would have perhaps been wise to declare the remainder of the year a holiday but I have never been that kind to myself.

“We were so excited and had so much fun painting the nursery and setting it up,” Dee Dee said. “We didn’t know what we were really going to have to face when he was born. We brought the car seat to the hospital.”

Once the baby was born, things immediately seemed off.

“I heard a faint cry,” remembered Dee Dee.

But she didn’t get to see or hold little Zion for five hours.

“You push, all the pain and then here comes the joy. You get to hold your child, kiss him, doll over him I didn’t get any of that,” she said.

Nurses rushed Zion to the neonatal intensive care unit.

“He had a breathing tube down his throat,” his mother recalled.

Quickly joy turned to fear.

“They didn’t think he was going to live through the night,” she said.

Dee Dee couldn’t process reality.

“It was just heart wrenching and heart breaking all of these things coming at you all at once!” she said.

Doctors diagnosed Zion with skeletal dysplasia, which restricts bone growth and lung development. He made it through the night and the NICU became home for the next five months.

“We made the most of our good times,” Dee Dee said.

Zion was a fighter. He even had his own Facebook page, Zion’s Saving Grace, to keep family and friends updated and to document his journey.

But his tiny body was deteriorating.

On May 17, 2014, Dee Dee knew they wouldn’t be going home.

“He didn’t look at me and I knew he wasn’t there anymore. It was the worst time of my life,” she said. “The scariest time of my life. You’re not supposed to bury your child.”

She was lost for a long time.

“I remember saying I don’t know what the other side of this is,” she said.

Her faith was fragile and fading.

“I was so angry at God because I was like ‘what did we do wrong?’ We trusted you. We had faith.”

But she found comfort in the song “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” by Hillsong United. She first sang it at Zion’s funeral.

“The words of the song are, ‘I will call upon your name. Keep my eyes above the waves when oceans rise,’ but it also talks about the mystery and the unknown and how we have to trust God when don’t feel or see the light at the end of the tunnel,” Dee Dee explained.

Zier Ramirez, 7, was getting impatient for Baby Cakes Cupcake Diner to open on Pine Avenue. When he was finally able to visit the newly opened shop, he looked into the refrigerator case and immediately selected a cupcake decorated with a mustache.

“He’s been waiting for them to open up,” his grandmother, Tricia DeGroff said as she purchased two cupcakes from the newest bakery in Niagara Falls.

Baby Cakes is the fulfillment of a dream for two young mothers who have been working long hours to restore and open the doors to their new business, located in the former Celenza’s Florist shop at 1412 Pine Ave.

“We redid everything,” said Christina Groce, 29, standing in the midst of her new bakery. Her partner in the project is Tracy Storey, a pastry chef who studied at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute.

The place has a 1950s soda shoppe feel, and Groce and Storey dress accordingly, although they’ve included some 2015 updates such as pink and purple cotton candy colored hair, tattoos and piercings.

Groce, the mother of three, said the shop has been selling out every day during the soft opening.

“We use all butter cream and fresh ingredients,” Groce said of her product. 24, when free cupcakes will be served,

along with a free concert by Tony Pedulla who, in keeping with the retro theme of Baby Cakes, will be singing standards by such ’50s era heroes as Frank Sinatra.

The cupcakes cost $2.95 each, and flavors will change everyday, Groce said. “Red velvet is huge for us,” she noted. “So is chocolate peanut butter with Swiss merange.”

The bakery will also make banana split cakes, “which are literally like a banana split in a cake.”

Things have been going even better than the women expected. “We opened for the Italian Festival and Sunday night when it was over and I locked the shop, I cried tears of relief and joy,” Groce said. Added Storey, “I am so overwhelmingly happy.”

The pair were welcomed to the neighborhood by the Rev. Stewart Lindsey, asst. pastor at St. Joseph’s Church across the street. “I haven’t tried them yet because I’m on a diet,” he said, laughing. But, he acknowledged mentioning the business to his parishioners during a recent sermon. “I told them, ‘We’ve got a new business across the street so after church, you should get some cupcakes.'”

Anyway. I want to take this apart. This is fun. I swear it is because it doesn make sense.

Well, you were um, brave( enough to leave this behind. Be proud of yourself! Good job, my boy! I mean girl.

No I don see your pun. Apologies. Hint: Capitalize the in and the in Capitalization is always important to keep in my mind.

This can be totally opened for debate and I love to argue about this. No flames because I know this can be argued over intelligently.

Okay, so you can call me a pro feminist. Sort of. Perhaps many yaoi and shounen ai fans can relate since I dislike this as much as they do.

Anime girls. Video game girls. EVERYWHERE. SMILES. BIG EYES. SMILES.

Such a clear representation of what girls truly are. Right. I am not saying portraying girls/women like that is wrong, but there has been too much of it and too many of “us” support it.

Now to continue to the whoring part of this section.

No, I do not harbor “secret jealousy in the very deep dark corners of my mind” but it irritates me to find that the string of female leads in all anime appear to be the same. Of course, we have some that do not fall in this category like Haruna(o Sakura of Naruto and Tifa Lockheart of Final Fantasy VII.

A familiarity or exact similarity appears in all anime female characters like the large tendency to be damsel in distress, somewhat flawless of error, exists in a perfect enviornment, and when possessing power to fight, never faces the dirt nor ever suffers wounds that would damage the SMILING, perfect face of the anime girl.

Of course, X/1999 Yuzuriha (who has tasted dirt and blood), Clover Suu (suicidal by taking the park down with her), and Samurai X Tomoe (who is dramatic without having to whine, bitch, scream about it).

What is my point so many anime have been having cliched characters that are redundant over and over yet no one seems to notice. The male characters do not seem to bear that much of a problem always bearing the most human quality traits. Why is it that the female lead must be so perfect and why do girl fans love that yet complain about magazine models perfect complexions puzzles me.

And those who support the flat, dull, and perfect picture of the female lead do not seem to have any concrete reason to support their fandom except for an “I don know” response.

So what happened to the girl that can kick ass without needing to be dependent on a guy What happened to the girl that can kick ass, look good ,but does not need to say any words to prove that (excluding Faye Valentine and Julia of Cowboy Bebop and Haruko Haruhana of FLCL)

I mean, I am not implying that all girls cannot have a guy but not every story needs to be done the same way where a guy chases after a girl and girl is distressed, guy saves her, happy ending. When has a girl ever fell in love with a guy but never had love returned When has that ever been the female lead that people can truly identify with yea. I a feminist on the inside.

This is the second time in six months that India has felt a severe earthquake.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a good gesture by calling his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif and Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, and offering help. This should be taken forward to create every possible precaution so that action is not delayed in the event of an earthquake, which, after all, cannot be accurately predicted, let alone prevented.Analysis of the Proposed Coupon SettlementOne or two cookies, or stale bread, preferably with fat (grease?)She said the rocks are painted but it the meaning behind them that moves people to tears.
