Visas for Translators: Even Kafka Wouldn't Put His Name on This

HBO's "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver tackled an issue that has
gotten little attention from the mainstream media, helping to save the
Iraqis and Afghans that helped the United States in the wars it started
in their countries. The audience may have laughed but much of this is
heartbreaking and anger inducing, anger at the United States for being
so inhumane and heartless.

NCIS: Olongapo City

 photo Jennifer_Laude_t250_zpsb56ca96d.jpgClosed Circuit TV cameras show PFC Joseph Scott Pemberton, 19, and three other Marines were drunk when they entered a Ambyanz Disco in Olongapo City around 11pm on Saturday, October 11. They show Pemberton leaving the bar a few minutes later with Jennifer Laude and three friends. Pemberton is seen holding hands with Jennifer's friend Barbie as they left Ambyanz for Celzone Lodge.

At around 11:35 Pemberton's buddies were seen returning to the bar, looking for him. They asked the bar employees if they might know where he was. They had midnight curfew and had to get back to the ship.

One witness identified Pemberton from a photo line-up by Philippine National Police. That witness also identified the 26-year-old Barbie as a witness of interest. Both witnesses have asked for government protection. Barbie also identified Pemberton.

Barbie has told investigators that she was sent away by Jennifer, who sensed there might be danger because they were transgender, so she and another friend went to another room in the lodge. Barbie said that a room attendant (Elias Gallamos) knocked on their door around 11:45 to tell them that Pemberton had left, leaving the door ajar and Jennifer "passed out" in the bathroom of her room.

Jennifer was, in fact, dead. She had been strangled and drowned in the toilet. Autopsy listed the cause of death as asphyxiation by drowning.

Gender Prison: The Fraudulence of 'Family Values'

Family can be so very toxic.

Robby Rikard is a baptist pastor because of course he is...our story just wouldn't be the same if he weren't. However much he wants this story to be about his cousin Jessica and her husband, Robby is the central actor in our drama (written by Rob Watson aka @JandJDad, who deserves major props)..

Other characters in the story are Robby's cousin Jessica and her husband Nick and American Family Association hater-in-chief Bryan Fisher.
