Kentucky passes law that all schools must have "In God We Trust" displayed. School district complies.

"The new law is required as a result of legislation filed by State Rep. Brandon Reed, a Republican minister from Hodgenville. It said in part that beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, local boards shall require each public elementary and secondary school to display the national motto of the United States, β€œIn God We Trust,” in a prominent location in the school."

"Fayette Superintendent Manny Caulk said Wednesday afternoon that in complying with the new law, β€œall schools in our district have been provided a framed version of an enlarged copy of a $1 dollar bill to display in a prominent location.”"

I was in the car when law enforcement murdered my (white) brother. This is how I feel about #blacklivesmatter

The police shot my (white) brother 14 times in a crowded Walmart parking lot killing him. He was wanted for a probation violation when a man we had never seen before jumped in front of the SUV we were in with a gun pointed directly at his head. He was driving. He began backing up in the opposite direction of the the man. The man ran towards us & within seconds confusion had set in. The music was loud, but the noises that came next is something I’ll never forget...I remember he shoved me on the floor board. Then acceleration, impact, the car coming to a dead drop then the smell of burnt skin & the sound of the horn. That man was a plain clothed officer, unbeknownst to us his partner was behind us. (to the side not in the way of the reversing vehicle) The both reloaded their guns twice. Bullets were found in the shops a football field away. I survived, my brother didn’t. I’ll never forget the smell of his burnt skin & the sound of the horn as he lay on it, dead weight. I had

WIBTA for boycotting my brother in law’s wedding?

I (29f) am pregnant with my first child and due to give birth in November. My BIL and his fiancΓ©e have planned to have a wedding during this time (roughly 2 weeks after my due date) and I’m super excited for them!

However they have huge plans in place, with over 100 guests. The argument started when each family member was assigned a certain wedding task. Mine was to ensure the guests walked out with their β€˜thank-you’ gifts (which is to be segregated by age & gender). This would involve initiating small talks and bidding adieus to guests, coordinating with the gifting committee etc. I said that there is no way I would be able to do this after giving birth only 2 weeks earlier and this sounded ridiculous. I offered to do the excel work- sorting names, addresses and gifts but this idea was also shot down. In a short while, the argument took another direction and my in-laws went off saying that I’m being an impossible woman and exaggerating my pregnancy woes and that there are thousa

AITA for telling my to be granddaughter in law some lewd advice after my family asked for some β€˜grandmotherly wisdom’?

My good friend Gracie made me aware a few weeks ago of a phrase that made both of us laugh til we were sore, a dirty phrase which is β€˜the key to a successful marriage is to keep a mans stomach full and balls empty’.

Both of us are in our 70’s and jovial and sprightly if I may say so. I liked the phrase – it was funny, and it stuck around in my mind. My family are aware I have a filthy sense of humor and I do like to laugh.

My eldest grandson is in his 30’s and recently proposed to his fiancΓ©e, they made us aware over it via a family FaceTime session. It was very sweet and everyone was in good spirits, drinking, etc.

My granddaughter and daughter pushed me to say a few words in the way of advice, but frankly I wouldn’t know, and I’m not one to give advice anyway. my grandsons fiancΓ©e said no no, give us some wisdom! So I said the phrase and the only people who burst out laughing were my grandson and his fiancΓ©e.

AITA for refusing to let my mother in law in the delivery room?

I’m currently 33 weeks pregnant with my first baby, a little girl and I’m absolutely ecstatic. I was told at 19 that I was infertile so to have this miracle come along is just an absolute blessing and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been with my husband, the father, for just over 3 years.

The issue comes with his mother. She is possibly the most overbearing woman I have ever met. I’m almost positive that in her mind her son is still 12 years old. I got on with her great at the beginning of our relationship but after we moved in together she was at our house literally every single night, and wouldn’t leave until about 10pm. She also talks to me as though I’m just an incubator for her sons child, sometimes she’ll just talk to my stomach without even acknowledging me which feels so dehumanising. She and my husband are very close, but I feel as though I have no time alone with him because she is constantly there.

AITA for telling my brother in law that paternity tests aren't automatic

UPDATE: wow this got a lot of comments!!!

So I have done a LOT of snooping. And it is way more soap opera than I thought.

  1. apparently since child 1 didn't look like him at all, she made up the paternity test scheme to trick him into marrying her. But, THEY ACTUALLY DID PATERNITY TEST THAT KID and the real test said her ex was the dad. But he refused so she lied about the result, and my bfs bro never asked to see the papers

  2. it gets worse. She's been secretly collecting child support from bio dad, and using it as get secret slush fund, while being a stay at home mom and making husband pay her way

  3. she cheated on him A LOT and figured that she could lie again if the kids weren't his, and secretly rake in the child support. So, each baby she had tested, but the next two were his.

  4. he decided to stay bc the kids - but he called the baby daddy of Kid 1 and explained the whole situation.

  5. Baby Daddy of kid 1 is in negotiations for visitation or to cease child support.

We need to introduce a law that says council construction companies can't dig a hole in the road, set up temporary traffic lights, and then bugger off for three weeks leaving them unattended!

AITA for getting upset at my in laws after they put a Disney-style family portrait which includes the woman my husband cheated on me with/mother of his illegitimate son in their living room?

I’m still emotional about all of this and I just want some perspective.

Background: Two years into our marriage, my husband Kyle cheated on me with one of his colleagues, Madison. Kyle immediately admitted what happened and he said that it was a drunken one-time thing that they both regretted. We were having a rough patch in our relationship at that time because of the stress of being unable to conceive, so I tried to understand him and gave our relationship another chance. I was gutted when he later told me that Madison was pregnant, but what’s done was done and the only thing I could do was accept it. They now have a son, Kit. Kyle’s parents adore Kit and they have him once a week every Friday. I don’t begrudge them for that and I myself care about Kit like a stepson because none of any of this is his fault.

Which brings us to the issue. For Mother’s Day my FIL had an artist draw a Disney-style family portrait of their family. My MIL sent a picture of the portrait that they put in

TIFU by getting in the shower with my future mother in law

This actually happened about thirty minutes ago and I still can't process it.

So my fiancΓ©e and I live together in our house and because of the whole quarantine thing, she was worried about her mother being all alone so we invited her to stay with us and she agreed. A bit awkward at first but she's good company and passed the awkward stage within two days.

Yah so I woke up this morning and my fiancΓ©e wasn't in bed but I could hear the shower in our bathroom. Feeling a bit frisky, I decided to join her and maybe play around a bit. Got fully naked and ready to go. I opened the door and the speakers in the bathroom were playing music and then it hit me. Maybe I should tiptoe in and seductively start kissing from behind like in the movies. It looks hot there so maybe it'll be the same in real life right? So I stealthily made it into the shower and wrapped my arms around 'my fiancΓ©e'. When she screamed I just started laughing (second wrong move) and said in a deep voice, "it's just me bab

I work in Law Enforcement. Here's what I'm seeing from the inside.

Background: I'm a member of a police department in a non-patrol/non-operational role focused on data and technology.

My city has seen multiple days of massive protests, which is unprecedented for our medium-sized city. The more hut-hut groups are leading the strategic planning of the riot control and specialized deployments.

Bottom line up front: This is a cluster fuck of racism, fear, and excitement.

In law enforcement those who fill the more physical military-Esque roles move up quickly (SWAT, K9, Street Ops). The groups I work with like technical services, intelligence, and data analysis are the redheaded stepchildren. Hell, "strategic planning" has been taken on by folks who spent their careers doing drug raids and undercover work.

The cops working these protests are expressing joy out of this. I have never been so disgusted with my field. They came into the office Monday night and were sharing war stories about how they pelted innocent protestors with rubber bullets and fired
