My cousin (a few years older than me) says my grandfather abused her when she was little. As far as I know, she has never said otherwise.
My grandfather is now deceased - he was a womanizer but anti-social most of the time, I've never heard anyone else complain about childhood with him and I never noticed him wanting to be around kids.
My grandmother says my cousin is confused and that it was the babysitter. But she has her own reasons for not wanting to believe my cousin. She was desperately scared of being poor, he had a good income and she had 3 or 4 kids at the time she was taking care of.
I guess my question is, is it possible for a child of around 5 to be confused about who molested them?7 AnswersPsychology5 months ago

'Back in 1967, says Jacob Sullum at Reason, "the NRA supported the Mulford Act, which banned open carrying of loaded firearms in California. The law, a response to the Black Panthers' conspicuous exercise of the right to armed self-defense, also was supported by Gov. Ronald Reagan." As the bill's conservative sponsor, Don Mulford (R), argued in 1989, "openly carrying a gun is an 'act of violence or near violence,'" Sullum noted. "Apparently Reagan and the NRA agreed." The Mulford Act is still on the books in California, America's most populous state.'9 AnswersOther - Politics & Government3 years ago

Why do so many (mostly Republicans) have such a hard time realizing the Civil War was about slavery?
'states rights' = the right to own slaves
'southern pride' = ONLY the southern states in the Confederacy (not S. CA, AZ or NM) and the desire to elevate a lifestyle based on owning slaves
Miss. Declaration of Secession- 'Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery--'
the end of the war was the END OF SLAVERY in the south and eventually the rest of the north.8 AnswersPolitics3 years ago

I'm asking b/c I've noticed a lot of guns everywhere advocates are all paranoid about 'the government' coming into their house to 'get them'. (I'm not going to go into how unrealistic it is for a civilian to think he/she can win a battle against a well armed and trained military figure even if they had a gun) Sorry to bring up any bad memories, but I was just wondering since I don't remember this being talked about in any of my history classes.4 AnswersHomework Help3 years ago
