Homosexual sex, a generation ago, was widely considered both immoral and pathological. Today it’s enshrined as a constitutional right and the hallmark of a new “protected class”.
Government schools nationwide teach children as young as five that homosexuality is normal and that disagreeing with this viewpoint brands you as an intolerant “hater.”
The popular culture always portrays homosexuals sympathetically and often as heroes.

The United States now have many Czars appointed by its new administration. One of these is pay czar Kenneth Feinberg.
One thing Mr. Fienberg says is that he looks to see if compensation practices are ‘inconsistent with the public interest’.
He then says, “Now what that will mean, I'm not sure.”
A commenter saw alarm with that statement which lacks any firm guiding principle. The comment writer says, “Holy buckets, is this a horrible process! Anyone remember the rule of law?
“ Congress passes a sentiment — compensation should be consistent 'with the public interest' — and we'll operationalize it later? In the judgment of a pay czar and whomever he elects to consult with?
“ We live in a precedent-based system of law. If you ever have a government bureaucrat nosing around to see if your pay is ‘inconsistent with the public interest’, remember this day.”

A small mob prevented an assembly of listeners from gathering at the
This latest reinforcement of Canadian activism, which states “What you don’t like, you can unilaterally shut down,” met with these words, many by Ann Coulter:

· This has never, ever, ever happened before — even at the stupidest American university.
· Since I’ve arrived in Canada, I’ve been denounced on the floor of Parliament — which, by the way, is on my bucket list — my posters have been banned, I’ve been accused of committing a crime in a speech that I have not yet given, I was banned by the student council, so welcome to Canada!
· I would like to know when this sort of violence, this sort of protest, has been inflicted upon a Muslim — who appear to be, from what I’ve read of the human rights complaints, the only protected group in
· An embarrassing day for the
· The spectacle showed just how eroded our Canadian values of free speech have become — especially on university campuses.
· It’s a shame. They claim we’re the intolerant ones, yet they’re the ones who refuse to allow a Conservative speaker to come to campus. That is the definition of intolerance.

Our first and greatest leader, George Washington, was not the most effective speaker of the Founders; that honor would be assigned to Patrick Henry, who turned out to be the greatest orator of the group. Interestingly, Thomas Jefferson, though the Founders’ most gifted writer, loathed public speaking and was in fact an even less effective speaker than was General Washington. Jefferson actually delivered very few speeches in his long public career, in any venue.
The General did not feel quite so negatively about speaking in public, and did in fact deliver numerous speeches, as military commander and as President, some of them quite brilliant.
There was a wonderful example of this when George Washington delivered a crucial speech to an audience that consisted of the rather fed-up soldiers of his army. Mutiny was in the air ...

Al Sharpton: "The American Public Overwhelmingly Voted for Socialism When They Elected President Obama"
Some of the American people probably thought they were voting for hope and change when they voted for President Barack Obama on

In asking the question, “What binds Canadians together emotionally ?”, an elderly Midway woman answered thus: “The fact that we don’t have any problems.”
Many Canadians feel the same way about the Gospel. “We don’t really need it. There is nothing really wrong with us. We are good people.”
That is very shaky ground to stand on, much like dry quicksand.
One day it might rain hard and long. Unsolid foundations will move and collapse. Self-righteous clothing will be of no value.

The Texas State Board of Education has succeeded in injecting conservative ideals into social studies which many liberals are very opposed to.
Board members argued about the classification of historic periods, BC and AD rather than the generic BCE and CE.
Students will learn about former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir and the origins of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Along with learning the Bill of Rights, the board further specified a reference to the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
The board gave its initial approval to the new standards with a 10-5 vote. A final vote will occur in May following a public comment period.
Decisions by the board, — composed of lawyers, a dentist, a newspaper publisher and others — can affect textbook content nationally.
Some declare that all truth is relative, that there is no such thing as an absolute.
That statement either includes itself or it doesn't.
If it includes itself, then that statement is not absolutely true.
If it excludes itself, then it is an absolute statement which it already said doesn't exist.

Politicians often use the mythological words, “Policeman and Fireman lay their lives on the line everyday for us.”
One might rightfully respond, “What inflammatory, self-serving, empty rubbish!”
This submitted report, “Workplace Fatalities in
Workplace Fatalities in
* Fishing and trapping
This industry has the highest incidence of workplace fatalities with 52 per 100,000 workers.
* Mining, quarrying and oil wells

* Logging and forestry
The logging and forestry industry, with 33.3 workplace fatalities per 100,000 workers, rounds out the top three.
Construction, not surprisingly can be fatal too, with 20.2 fatalities per 100,000 workers.
* Transportation and storage
Coming in fifth as the most dangerous industry, transportation and storage has the distinction of 16.0 workplace fatalities per 100,000 workers.
Agriculture and manufacturing also ranked a higher risk before any government service did.

Skilfully playing on our deeply felt national values — fairness, generosity, and tolerance — marketers have persuaded society to embrace the new ‘enlightened and noble’ which all previous generations regarded as grossly self-destructive and evil.
Much of what people universally abhorred is now packaged, perfumed, gift-wrapped, and sold to us as though it had great value.

Which are you going to believe: Al Gore or your own eyes?
Forget what we in the
If it's hot, blame global warming. If it's cold, blame climate change.
Al Gore is not a serious person. He's a get-rich-quick artist who is peddling the biggest con game in the history of man.
