Just a few News and Headlines from the last couple of day’s and today, followed by some Commentary/Opinion.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stocks rose and the dollar edged higher against a basket of major currencies on Thursday after the U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of a tax overhaul bill.
PARIS – Is a 13-year-old girl old enough to agree to sex with an adult? That’s a question France is asking itself as the government prepares to set a legal age for sexual consent for the first time.
Twice in recent weeks, French courts refused to prosecute grown men for rape after they had sex with 11-year-olds because authorities couldn’t prove coercion. Amid public horror, the government is drafting a bill to say sex with children under a certain age is by definition coercive.
A part of the new directive states that: “Children should be afforded freedom from the expectation of permanence. They are in a ‘trying on’ stage of life, and not yet adult and so no labels need to be fixed. This should inform the language teachers use when they comment, praise or give instructions. It may be best to avoid labels and assumptions which deem children’s behaviour irregular, abnormal or problematic just because it does not conform to gender stereotypes or today’s play preferences.”
These guidelines were endorsed by Rev. Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, leader of the Church of England and spiritual leader of the world’s 80 million Anglicans.
A former high school sophomore in Florida who was raped by her geometry teacher has won a nearly $50 million judgment against him.
President Trump, who is winding down his 12-day Asia trip, took to Twitter early Tuesday to express excitement about heading back to the U.S. to work on his tax overhaul legislation Republicans claim benefit the middle class.

Commentary / Opinion:
Unfortunately, so do the puff pieces written on tyrannies that emerge wherever communism spread. The New York Times alone has published pieces praising Vladimir Lenin as a conservationist, East Germany as a sexual paradise, and Mao’s China as a place of women’s advancement.
