    National Review ^ | 28 Nov, 2015 | JONAH GOLDBERG
    The winning streak enjoyed by campus activists this fall was violently interrupted by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. Some activists were sufficiently annoyed by their ejection from the limelight that they took to Twitter to complain under the hashtag "F***Paris." The most obvious irony stemmed from the fact that some of the same protesters who griped about media coverage of their antics — even declaring First Amendment-free zones — suddenly whined when the cameras turned to bloodshed in the heart of Europe. But there's a deeper irony. In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, fueled by a cynical media...

One of the conflicts involves the role played by Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal. Regarding the dozens of emails from him, which in many cases were forwarded to...

"She really wanted to serve," Gimble said. "She was so disappointed. Unfortunately, we don't run across too many people like that these days." And the trend seems to be getting worse. On average, 70 percent of potential jurors summoned in McLennan County don’t bother to respond to the notices. The no-show rate is similar in Lubbock and Bell counties but worse in Taylor County, where an average of...

In fact, it's not connected to anything to tether it to the lake's floor.

Indeed, the Old Man goes along with the whims of the wind and waves. The 30-foot-long stump was first...

    In 2003, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren linked up on a supercar project that showed Mercedes-Benz had a bone to pick with some of the world's fastest vehicles. At the time, the German automaker owned 40 percent of McLaren Automotive, so it had access to some superb race-bred technology. As a result, the Mercedes SLR McLaren was born. Few production vehicles could match the SLR's 617 horsepower and 580 pound-feet of torque from its supercharged V8. In fact, only Ferrari's Enzo, with its 650 hp V12, made more power and was quicker to 60 mph. Other entrants followed, including the Porsche Carrera...

I'm not making this up. Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic! Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims! Anyone who dares challenge them...

    In addition to immigration, the state, federal and local prisons of the United States may be a contributor to the growth of Islam in the United States. J. Michael Waller claims that Muslim inmates comprise 17-20% of the prison population in New York, or roughly 350,000 inmates in 2003. He also claims that 80% of the prisoners who "find faith" while in prison convert to Islam.[1] These converted inmates are mostly African American, with a small but growing Hispanic minority.[2] Waller also asserts that many converts are radicalized by outside Islamist groups linked to terrorism, but other experts suggest that...

    Forget the housing bubble, the education bubble is about to burst. Student loan debt is at $1.2 trillion. College enrollment increased under Obama, but graduation rates fell. Barely half the students who enrolled in 2009 graduated. And some of the biggest casualties were black students. Only a third of black male college students graduate. Among black women, it’s 44%. And the college graduation gap between white and black students has continued to increase under Obama. 71% of black high school graduates have enrolled in college compared to only 67% of white high school graduates. But that just means more black...

    Periods of high extinction on Earth, rather than evolutionary adaptations, may have been a key driver in the diversification of amniotes (today's dominant land vertebrates, including reptiles, birds, and mammals), according to new research published in Scientific Reports. The new study reveals that mass extinctions among some groups of amniotes coincide with numerous and large diversifications in other closely related groups. Conducted by scientists from the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, Germany, and the University of Lincoln, UK, the research challenges commonly held views that support a relationship between the evolution of "key innovations" in a group and the rapid...

Denny's customer Natasha West was sharing an innocent plate of all-you-can-eat pancakes with her friends when a waitress approached her and told her that wasn't allowed. Instead of backing down, West decided to defend her right to share pancakes. Unfortunately, she dodged the check (not cool) and tried to hit the waitress (super not cool) and was subsequently arrested. Some people are just exceedingly passionate about breakfast foods.
