    Here in Charlotte, UNCC has adopted a new policy about going to the bathroom. As NBC Charlotte reports: ... the University of North Carolina-Charlotte campus now allows transgender students, faculty and staff to use the restroom of their choice. This is a distinct policy change that was quietly slipped in under the radar. Previously, persons who are transgender had the option of using one of several gender neutral bathrooms on campus, or the bathroom designated for their physical birth gender. (Otherwise known as "their gender.") "It's like kind of weird to see a dude go in a girl's bathroom...

    Obama -- who, for reasons unknown, much prefers dealing with the "Death to America" Muslim theocracy in Iraq than with the pro-USA government in Israel. Go figure Recently my mom complained to me that she is confused by what is happening in the Middle East. I doubt she is alone in this, and for her benefit and those of you who share her confusion I have decided to clear things up. With that in mind, what follows is a brief summation of the situation in the Middle East—hopefully it will answer a number of questions you might have. To begin...

    Obama was working to replace foreign Christian leaders with fully-fledged Caliphate-seeking Islamists The full-scale social engineering of President Barack Hussein Obama in the elections of countries where he has no business being seeks to install radical Islamists to power. Even though it’s s a provable deadly blueprint that’s putting the West at great risk, no one is calling him on it. Obama’s been on the trail of replacing Christian leaders with Islamic ones before he became president, starting with Kenya where he actively campaigned to elect Islamic defender Raila Odinga in 2007. Obama got away with it because following a...

    Over the past 2 years the Obama administration has been desperate to boost minimum wages, usually over tedious bickering with republicans and corporations who have resisted such an increase, with neither party realizing that such a measure would not do much to actually boost aggregate spending. Instead, what Obama should have been focusing on was to limit the maximum number of hours worked per week, because as the following chart shows, the reason why weekly pay is rising and aggregate earnings is not due to an increase in hourly wages but because Americans are simply working longer hours every...

    My, what a difference two and a half years and a nasty, self righteous video by a nasty, self righteous man make. In the summer of 2012, an individual who could only accept diversity, pluralism and multi culturalism as long as it agreed with his politically correct notions, posted a video of himself harassing a Chick-Fil-A order taker on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. That was the day those who actually believed in diversity, pluralism and multi culturalism chose to support the fast food chain against those who disagreed with the founder who opposed gay marriage. The founder didn't say he would...

    In a bizarre domestic case in Florida, a jury has found the man who shot and killed his former girlfriend's boyfriend and severely wounded her, not guilty.  The father of the girlfriend's four children drove the shooter to and from the shooting, and had been the employee of the shooter.   The driver was also a convicted felon.  The shooting occurred in 2009.  The driver was convicted in 2010 and is serving a 30 year sentence for being an accessory to murder, after the fact.  From tbo.com: A jury last month found Eric William "Scooter" Bazemore guilty of the...

    I grew up Jewish.  When I was growing up, being Jewish meant you supported Israel.  I lived through the 1967 war (I was a toddler), the 1973 war (I was in third grade), and the “troubles” since then.  Israel always seemed invincible. As I got older, things became more complicated.  Today I read about Jews of my generation who question their loyalty to Israel, who, in fact, disclaim Israel as their birthright, as if it were something that could be disclaimed. Certainly, the images of dead Palestinian children can make anyone with a shred of human decency’s heart break.  I...

    Proving that the race card has no bounds a Democrat Indiana lawmaker has accused an 18-month-old of being a racist. While debating the controversial “Religious Freedom Bill” recently signed into law by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Rep. Vanessa Summers said the toddler, who is the son of her colleague Republican Judson McMillin was afraid of her because she’s black. “He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried,” she said. “And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.” Now anyone who’s...
  • America’s Alice-in-Wonderland Economy

    The phrase “mad as a hatter” refers to the 19th-century use of mercuric-nitrate in the making of felt hats. Long-term exposure to mercury caused hatmakers to experience mood swings, tremors and emotional imbalances that made them appear mad. We live in a world gone mad. Money printing—today’s mercury—has poisoned the whole financial system. Trusted relationships have broken down. Fundamental truths appear suspect, and economic laws no longer seem to hold true. In America especially, it’s as if the whole economic system fell down a rabbit hole into a world where up is down, debt is good, and people exuberantly celebrate...

Since those being honored may not have family members, Larson said the public is a stand in for them an he hopes area residents will attend the ceremony. People should arrive...

    I’m usually an eager relayer of well-founded theories and clues which help get the truth out when politically-correct authorities try to hide or minimize the Islamic identity of jihad attackers, but in the case of Andreas Lubitz I must firmly state that so far (as of 3:00 am EST, U.S.), people are posting only completely unsubstantiated, non-credible reports that he was a convert to Islam. In the early absence of much solid information about the 28-year-old pilot’s personal life the internet is, of course, going wild with speculation about Lubitz’ motives for deliberately crashing the plane full of innocent people...

    The commonsense ruling that the second amendment applies outside of the home in the Peruta court case in the Ninth Circuit will now be decided by a hearing of an en banc panel of the justices of the Circuit. Decided in favor of the plaintiff, procedural motions eventually led to a at least one judge calling for the en banc hearing, sua sponte.  Thought to be unlikely because of both the clear ruling and the rarity of en banc hearings, the Ninth none the less voted to hear the case en banc.  The notice of the vote was published...

The author and neurobiologist Steven Pinker famously argued exactly that in his celebration of the Enlightment, The Better Angels of our Nature. Last week, in The Guardian, the author John Gray published a long article arguing that Pinker is wrong.So, who's right?Here are the points I would make.1.

    The news brings us a daily reminder of why the Obama administration is inept and lacking in basic common sense when it comes to its most important tasks: defeating the Islamic State and keeping Iran from getting nuclear weapons and dominating the region. The last, I think it is clear, is not even a problem to be addressed. The administration appears content to work in tandem with Iran in Iraq, let the Houthis depose the elected government in Yemen (where they have, according to news reports, looted intelligence files “exposing names of informants and plans for U.S.-backed counter-terrorism operations”), leave...

    There have been several instances on social media in which those who hold to values not favored by the Left have found themselves and their groups warned, suspended and even banned for expressing themselves, while Left-leaning groups have gotten away with much worse. Remember that conservatives, Republicans, libertarians and other advocates of universal values, freedom, equality under the law and individual responsibility are held to a different standard here on Facebook and other social media venues. There was a notorious example in which Facebook required a rape survivor to use her “real name” because she testified against a “transgender” bathroom...

    Robert Duvall sat down with The Daily Beast at the recent South-by-Southwest (SXSW) festival to talk about his new movie, “Wild Horses.” But the enigmatic actor also offered up some strong advice to the Republican Party, which we’ll get to in a bit. According to the publication, Duvall has been a longtime supporter of the GOP: He was personally invited to George W. Bush’s presidential inauguration in 2001, worked the floor—and narrated the videos—for the 2008 Republican National Convention, and publicly endorsed Mitt Romney in 2012. But last year, Duvall told The Daily Beast that he’s leaning independent because the...

Quinn S.J. made his announcement in a statement issued on February 10th in which he said that “it [abortion] is inconsistent with the moral teachings of the Church. ….

    Legislation aimed at deterring human trafficking (kidnapping people and selling them into slavery—especially as prostitutes) was stifled by a Democratic filibuster in the US Senate this week. The offending clause in the bill, as Democrats see it, is language that would bar federal funds being used to fund abortions. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) explained that “inasmuch as unwanted pregnancy is an even worse fate than being sold as a sex slave we cannot abide placing any limits on a woman’s right to an abortion. A sex slave merely has to endure occasional interludes of undesired intercourse. A woman denied an...

  • My fear of a right-wing kid: I won’t let my child become a Ted Cruz-voting wing-nut

    Ted Cruz? Lizzie is a liberal like me now. But what if one day she embraces the Tea Party, like her grandparents? My parents are Tea Party. I’m a liberal. My husband is to the left of your average communist. Dinners together walk a tightrope of small talk — none of us wanting to veer too far in either direction, frightened we’ll go careening into a political abyss. Our daughter, Lizzie, is always a safe topic. She’s our Switzerland. But I’m not sure how much longer that will last. Lizzie, at 12, is becoming politically aware. She’s always been well...

    The Second Amendment case of the Radich family in the Northern Mariana Islands suffered an unexpected setback earlier this month.  A judge in the U.S. District Court dismissed the case.  From stripes.com: Earlier this month, a U.S. District Court judge dismissed the case because the Department of Public Safety commissioner does not have jurisdiction over importation of handguns into the Northern Marianas. The judge gave the Radiches the option to continue their suit by filing an amended complaint that includes the import ban and names the Customs Service as a defendant. The amended complaint is expected to be filed...
  • Common Core: pliant proletariat workers for crony capitalist corporations

    If you want to transform American students into pliant proletariat workers for crony capitalist corporations, Common Core is the way to indoctrinate them into the collectivist utopian mindset During a late evening visit to our local restaurant, I witnessed a progressive middle-aged couple pleading with their young child to give up a toy she had taken from her playmate’s home. As they were arguing back and forth, loud enough for the entire restaurant to hear, all I could think of was, why bring a small child so late to a restaurant and, for God’s sake, isn’t anybody in charge of...

    The American Dream is still alive and well, a beacon of freedom, and will always attract new immigrants to be future productive citizens. I am proud to be an American, and proud of this nation’s history, culture, and accomplishments! America is a melting pot of immigrants who brought rich heritages to our shores, became immersed in American culture, and worked hard to achieve the American Dream. My first ancestor came to this continent ten generations ago, and the arrival of my most recent ancestor was four generations ago, so I consider myself an American-American! As far as I am concerned,...
  • Let's Ban Political Parties From the Political Process

    “Universal voting would counteract money more than anything,” makes as much sense as anything else Obama has said. The idea that people utilizing their freedom of association to pool resources in order to influence politics is somehow corruptive of the political process stems from the unspoken idea that the country is one big commons owned collectively by us all and the government's purpose is to decide how to fairly allocate the commons. In an actual free country there is no such problem. The country isn't one big socialized commons. But in a socialized country where the presumption is that everything...

    Coach is Right ^ | 3/23/15 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
    The United States is in danger of becoming a third world country as it follows the third world dream of a third world president. Listen to what our mistake-of-a-president has said in the past and you will understand where he wants this country to go. For example, Obama believes the United States is a colonialist, racist country that must be torn down before it can be made respectable. It is from the Marxist intellectuals who raised him that Obama obtained the belief that Europe and the United States became super powers on the backs of others. But decades of liberalism...

    As published in Palm Desert Patch By Livia Sappington on September 30, 2011 Republishing here now to keep the discussion going and fuel the resistance against "Fundamentally Changing the United States of America". ~~~~~~~~~~~~ How does socialism 'happen?' Read about how seemingly "nice","just", and politically correct ideas can be unfair and jeopardize freedom itself. I am an immigrant from a formerly socialist country who now lives in Rancho Mirage. I arrived in the United States on March 12, 1974. It's been a long journey. If you had my background, you would understand my concerns for the seeping of socialist policies...
