  • Nine horrendous Obama decisions Mitt Romney would never have made

    Cain's Solutions Revolution ^ | April 30, 2012 | Herman Cain
    As we move into the general election campaign, with Mitt Romney facing Barack Obama in the presidential race, it’s important not to lose perspective on the very real differences between the two. That starts with the recognition that Obama has made some astonishingly ill-conceived decisions as president, and that Romney would never have done these things. During a party’s nominating process for president – of which I was a part on the Republican side in this cycle – candidates do everything they can to differentiate themselves from each other. As the candidates focus on these differences and the media plays...

    By Their Strange Fruit ^ | 3/19/12 | Katelin Hansen
    As a result of a racialized criminal justice system, black folk are disproportionately stripped on their right to vote, denied participation on juries, and discriminated against for employment and housing. Those most in need of assistance are denied public housing, food stamps, access to education, and any number of other resources for restorative support. With no job, no house, no food, and no allies is it any wonder that there is a 70% recidivism rate? Every year, our legal system robs millions of the achievements made by the heroes of the Civil Rights movement.

    Email to University listservs | 10/17/11 | Pranav Jani
    FYI: faculty at Ohio State University are now officially using tax-funded university email accounts and resources to endorse the “Occupy Columbus” movement. Here is the text of an email sent by Pranav Jani, a Communist and a professor in the Department of English: --- *Please forward widely* On Monday, October 24, a group led by students from OSU will be bringing the “Occupy” movement to Ohio State. As the poster below suggests, there will be events from 12-5, followed by a march downtown to join Occupy Columbus. The general slogan is around fighting corporatization of the university, and in higher...

    Ann Coulter's excellent column on the Troy Davis brouhaha mentioned that there were 34 witnesses, not 9 like the Left keeps insisting. Has anyone come across legal documents to back up that number?
  • Tea Partiers Scream Racial Epithets at Muslims [fake?]

    Jezebel ^ | March 3, 2011 | Margaret Hartmann
    We've seen videos of racist Tea Partiers before, but this one may be the most utterly disgusting. On February 13, as people entered a charity fundraiser in Orange County that was sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America, right-wing protesters screamed hateful comments, telling Muslim families to "go home, you terrorist lovers." And it gets worse.
  • Wanted: Literature about 9/11 (vanity)

    Vanity | 12/8/10 | sthguard
    Hi folks-- I'm putting together a college course on the problem of evil/suffering, and want to include a text that somehow grapples with the suffering of 9/11. Short stories or poetry would work better than novels since we will only have one class day to cover the reading, and both fiction and non-fiction is fine. This course is on American literature, so ideally I'd like to use something that goes beyond just describing the events of that day. (And, of course, if it happens to subvert the thoughtless liberalism endemic to college students, so much the better.) Any suggestions would...

    Tuscon Sentinal ^ | June 5, 2010 | Dylan Smith & Michael Truelsen
    A Prescott radio host embroiled in a controversy over a school mural is off the air, while the mural won't be subject to a whitewash order. Steve Blair, who also holds a seat on the Prescott City Council, was let go from his talk radio show after drawing fire for his opposition to an environmental mural painted on an elementary school. The "Go to Green" mural, based on the faces of children who attend the school, drew local criticism for featuring minority children. The school district has reversed its request to lighten the faces of the students in the mural,...

    To give you an idea of the lies that the Left is spreading (both in English and Spanish, of course), this email went out to all their sheeple (I saw it on Facebook): Arizona’s governor just signed SB 1070 into law, effectively making it legal to racially profile in the state. The bill requires local law enforcement to question anyone they have “reasonable suspicion” of being undocumented. Translation: you could be pulled over for no other reason than that you are brown-skinned or speak Spanish. That Gov. Jan Brewer could sign such a discriminatory law — one of the worst...

    Center for Immigration Studies/Youtube ^ | March 25, 2010 | Dr. Carol Swain
    This is a good presentation by Dr. Carol Swain, a law professor at Vanderbilt, about the effects of the Southern Policy Law Center on public debate; she argues that shutting down conservative voices in the name of political correctness actually encourages extremism rather than moderating it. It's part of a panel discussion put on by the Center for Immigration Studies at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Part 1 of her remarks is about five minutes long; part 2 is about nine minutes.

    TITUSVILLE [FL] - Sen. Barack Obama promised not to cut NASA funding and said Saturday at a town hall meeting he will rely on Florida Sen. Bill Nelson and revered astronaut and former Sen. John Glenn to help form his space policy. "Under my watch, NASA will inspire the world once again and is going to help grow the economy right here in Brevard County," said the presumptive Democratic nominee, speaking to a crowd of 1,400 at Brevard Community College's Titusville campus. Obama has changed an earlier position, in which he planned to delay the Constellation program five years and...

    FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU Arab prof: 'Blowing oneself up' OK in Tel Aviv But asserts suicide bombings against Saudis not legitimate Posted: October 26, 2009 10:16 pm Eastern By Aaron Klein © 2009 WorldNetDaily JERUSALEM – Suicide bombings are OK in Tel Aviv, Israel, but not in Saudi Arabia, declared a Saudi professor speaking on Arab satellite television. "Someone who blows himself up amidst the enemy is different from someone who blows himself up in a safe place. Blowing oneself up in Tel Aviv is not like blowing oneself up in Riyadh," stated Saudi University professor Salman Al-Abdali on Iqra...
  • Obama Speech for Propaganda Class

    09/05/2009 11:05:03 AM PDT · by sthguard · 186+ views
    Vanity
    Hi, all-- I'm putting together a writing course with the theme "Propaganda and Power," focusing on the relationship between the act of defining and/or denouncing propaganda and the resulting questions of authority and legitimacy. Our literary readings will be from Orwell and Huxley, but I'd also like to include some material from the Obama administration to show my students that Big Brother is alive, well, and raising their taxes. I know a lot of what Obama says can easily be classified as propaganda, so I'm looking specifically for material that comments on the legitimacy of other news/opinion sources or actually...

    Though I've been politically outspoken (and occasionally out-shouted) among my various friends, colleagues, and acquaintances for some time, it was only this year that I decided to take the plunge and purchase the accessories every pundit needs: a few selected bumper stickers. When I transferred cars last month I decided the McCain/Palin sticker had served its purpose and tossed it, but switched over the other two: one from the tea party movement and one more waggish one mocking The One's well-documented Messiah complex. My conservative friends got a good laugh out of both, and I felt just a little better...
  • Disorderly conduct - does location matter?

    7/23/09 | Vanity
    A question for the legal experts among us: is it true that a disorderly conduct charge cannot be made in the suspect's home? Or is it just dependent on the behavior involved? Also, does anyone know if any official documents have been released regarding the dropped charges against Gates? I know they were dropped due to political pressure, but am curious if they give any other official justification. TIA!
