    So I have had a few discussions with idiot liberal acquaintances over the last few months since Donald trump won and then became our President. Many of them revolve around how horrible Trump is and how they feel like everything is going to hell. I just humor them as I tried to get a feel how they were before the election and they were either for the old dirtbag hag Hillary or some of the real fruitcakes were for Jill Stein. When they say that they want to move out of the United States I always recommend the following countries:...

    A famous novel by H. G. Wells begins: “No one would have believed in the last years of the 19th century that this world was being watched keenly and closely…[that]intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And early in the 20th century came the great disillusionment.” That’s a perfect summary of Professor John Dewey and his friends— intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic. They looked at our culture and our schools and came to a hostile conclusion: this place needed fundamental transformation. So John Dewey and...

    Here's another important fact. Many Mexicans go to Mexico for medical care, including surgery and all kinds of major medical care. As a result, when one of them is in a wreck or injured, no medical records are available here to show previous injuries/conditions and they are able to claim it was because of the wreck/injury. As a result, lawyers argue that all injuries they have were a result of the incident which occurred here. Conversely, Americans whose records are available can not claim previous injuries were caused by the recent wreck/injury due to availability of records AND a different...

    Students at the prestigious University of Chicago say that free speech should not apply equally to everyone. The students objected to the school’s Institute of Politics’ invitation to former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. They claim that allowing him to speak “normalizes bigotry” and provides a platform for fascism. Lewandowski did not join the White House staff but by many accounts remains an influential advisor to the president. The coalition of students from U of C Resists, Graduate Students United, Students Working Against Prisons, and UChicago Socialists claim that the school’s “commitment to free expression” doesn’t require the institution...

    With just six months until Germans go to the polls, Angela Merkel's re-election is looking less certain by the week. Martin Schulz is a dangerous adversary and his Social Democrats are full of the kind of enthusiasm that the chancellor's party lacks. In November 1998, Angela Merkel gave an interview to the photographer and writer Herlinde Koelbl. It was a moment of uncertainty in Merkel's career, coming as it did just after Chancellor Helmut Kohl, on whose cabinet Merkel had served for seven years, lost that year's general election. Kohl had failed to recognize that Germans had grown weary of...

House Concurrent Resolution 75, "urging Texans not to use the flag emoji of the Republic of Chile when referring to the Texas flag," was introduced by Republican State Representative Tom Oliverson from Cypress on Thursday. "Most major electronic messaging applications provide a number of flag emojis, including that of the Republic of Chile, but the official flag of Texas, also known as the Lone Star Flag, is not included in the selection," Oliverson wrote in the resolution text.

    WESTERVILLE, Oh (WSYX/WTTE) — A graphic message has parents in a central Ohio school district concerned. Anti-abortion signs were posted along a street near Westerville South High School Tuesday. Students saw the signs as they walked out of school. The group, Created Equal, said its goal is to talk to students about the dangers of abortion. "We are outside the high schools to present all the evidence. We want students to have the full facts about what abortion does so they can make an informers choice," said Seth Drayer, who is the Director of Training for Created Equal.

    We’re not even a month into the Trump Administration, and liberal thoughts have irrationally moved from hoping and planning for Hillary Clinton’s third run for President to just plain silliness—President Trump’s resignation or impeachment. To me, this signals good things. I haven’t seen liberals this upset and powerless for decades. While I believe liberal tears will keep me young, I just can’t understand how such smart people could be so seriously delusional. I recently read a Hoover Institution article by the “classically liberal” NYU law professor Richard Epstein, who suggested that President Trump should immediately resign. Not because of Trump’s...

    Louis XVI, king of France, arrived in the wrong historical place at the wrong time and soon found himself overwhelmed by events beyond his control. Ascending the throne in 1774, Louis inherited a realm driven nearly bankrupt through the opulence of his predecessors Louis XIV and XV. After donning the crown, things only got worse. The economy spiraled downward (unemployment in Paris in 1788 is estimated at 50%), crops failed, the price of bread and other food soared. [...] In 1788, Louis was forced to reinstate France's National Assembly (the Estates-General) which quickly curtailed the king's powers. In July of...

A challenge to the injunction late last year by the Obama administration had been scheduled to go before the court this week but was canceled by Friday's filing. Sarah Warbelow, legal director...

    Multiple studies released by statisticians and psychologists have revealed evidence for potential professional and personal harm to academics and students expressing conservative political leanings in universities across America. As the largely conservative "Greatest Generation" faded into retirement in the 1990s, "Baby Boomers" holding increasingly liberal worldviews came to dominate university faculty.  Studies released by the Heterodox Academy, tasking themselves with studying the evolving hegemony of "progressives" in academia, have revealed a significant lack of diversity in political thought encompassing various universities and academic departments. So dominant is leftist ideology that across university departments in nearly all states, an average...

    Kiran Kruse’s free throws with 1.2 seconds left beat St. Francis in OT, keep Bells unbeaten in WCALIn one of the loudest gyms he said he’d ever played in, on the home court of his school’s archrival, Bellarmine College Prep’s Kiran Kruse stepped to the free-throw line with 1.2 seconds left in overtime Saturday night and the score tied.

And while his bill has gained little support since the Bronx Democrat first introduced it four years ago, with some legislative colleagues...

    Mussolini had become a member of the Socialist Party in 1900 and had begun to attract wide admiration.

His powerful writing injected excitement into the Socialist ranks. In a party that had accomplished little in recent years, his youth and his intense nature was an advantage. He called...

    Our Animal House Posted on December 19, 2016 by Robin (Reader Advisory: explicit content) I had one of those sad Berkeley days.
