Op/ED

 

Citizen of Venezuela – Results of its recent national election has allegedly been manipulated.   Antonio Mugica, of London-based Smartmatic, the company that has provided technology for the Venezuelan elections said it detected an inflated turnout figure. 

Even with evidence of collusion with the Russian government, Donald Trump said of the Venezuelan election, that the Venezuelan government had turned into a de facto dictatorship.   The anomie US President even called the south American governments election a “Sham Election.”  And the American people know that the 2016 US Presidential election was as bogus as the World Trade Center’s destruction in 2001.

Wife refuses sex = Abuse?

Wife Abuse

Scribe: Lucy Osbourne

Email: lucy@thethinkering.com

 

 

Malaysian lawmakers are in the process of defining exactly domestic violence. Che Mohamad Zulkifly Jusoh is spearheading the charge to redress the outdated standard defining the life changing condition. He recently said before the parliament, "Even though men are said to be physically stronger than women, there are cases where wives hurt or abuse their husbands in an extreme manner."

 

Mr. Che went on to say husbands suffer emotional abuse when a wife curses him out or when she denies him sex. He and activist groups have cited that the new bill will offer more protection for victims of domestic abuse for very different reasons.

 

Activists called the notion uncivilized and primal.

 

Do you believe the cursing and verbal aggression and using sex as a tool abuse in a marriage?
