    The time has come to remove the words “halfbreed” and “breed” from the names of creeks, lakes and other places around Montana, according to leaders of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians. Nicholas Vrooman, who works with the tribe, presented a bill draft to that effect during a recent meeting with the State-Tribal Relations Legislative Committee. The words are racist terms that demean American Indians, he said. […] The bill would require state and other agencies to identify places with the terms and remove them from maps, signs and markers when age or vandalism calls for an update. It...

    Most women will tell you that other than the N-word, the C-word is the most vile in the English language never to be used. Cher apparently doesn't hold such a belief, for she disturbingly took to Twitter Friday to call former Alaska governor Sarah Palin a "Dumb C Word": Go to dictionary,& look up The “C"Word,....next 2 the definition...you’ll see a Pic of Sarah PALIN ! NO...WAIT ...SHES UNDER DUMB C WORD 11:11 AM - 15 Nov 2013
  • A “You didn’t build that” convention? (Elizabeth Warren to be keynote speaker at DNC convention?)

    Could Democrats really be this tone deaf? For nearly two weeks, Team Obama has been reeling from his "you didn't build that" comment --- to the extent that Barack Obama himself had to cut a personal response ad to stanch the bleeding, so far to no avail. And yet, the Charlotte Observer picks up on a Boston Globe report from ten days ago that the "buzz" around the Democratic convention (such as it is) has the author of that argument, Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, under serious consideration to be the keynote speaker at the DNCC: The crowds at political conventions...
  • Brown calls on Warren to reveal law school records

    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown demanded that Elizabeth Warren release her law school applications and personnel files today, saying questions about Warren’s Native American heritage mean she must answer, “whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a professor.” The demand comes two days after the Massachusetts Republican Party called for Harvard to investigate potential “academic fraud” committed by Warren. “Serious questions have been raised about the legitimacy of Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American ancestry and whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a college professor. Her changing stories, contradictions and refusal to...

    Many critics have called Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren a "racist" for relating a family story about how her grandfather had "high cheekbones like all Indians do." But they're wrong. The comment wasn't "racist." It was stupid. In fact, it was childishly stupid. Really, it reminds one of the copout Bill Clinton disgorged when addressing his marijuana use: "I tried it, but I didn't inhale." And it should come as no surprise, either — leftists are childish. As for the "racism" charge, many conservatives take that leaf out of the left's book because, they figure, turnabout is fair play. If...

    The awful truth is dawning on many Democrats, possibly including Elizabeth Warren herself: her candidacy for "Teddy Kennedy's seat" has turned into a nightmare, raising all sorts of uncomfortable issues for public scrutiny. Even worse, Alinsky's favorite tool, ridicule, is being deployed to make points that inflict lasting damage on sacred cows of the left like affirmative action and the transcendent wisdom of Harvard Law School progressives. It is starting to damage the Democratic brand. You would have to search hard to find anyone who better embodies the liberals' you're-too-stupid-to-make-your-own-decisions mentality than Elizabeth Warren. She was the brains behind...

    She obviously figures she owes her success to her ability to manipulate the victimization of America's First Nation People to secure a teaching position at Harvard; since, according to Ms Warren, no one achieves success on their own. I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired...
