    Everyday Feminism ^ | December 8, 2017 | Lara Witt
    As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; theyíre true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If youíre not going to support marginalized folks, then we canít be friends, let alone date. The personal is political. Beyond the lovely cushioning, happiness and support that we receive from our platonic relationships (which are, in all honesty, soul-feeding and essential), feminists also date! But there are questions we have to ask before we get close to someone.

    The University of Cincinnati attempts to draw connections between the amount of anger an individual exhibits, and their political preferences. ďThe motorist tailgating you on the highway might be doing more than just getting you upset ó they could also be influencing your political views,Ē Koester wrote. Salerno, an assistant professor of marketing, and a second professor from University of Manitoba, came to this bizarre conclusion upon ďmultiple studies that included more than 1,000 participants.Ē

    Pope Francis will offer his thoughts to the camera in a new documentary by Oscar-nominated director Wim Wenders, its backers have announced at the Cannes film festival. ďA Man Of His WordĒ will see the Argentine pontiff respond to questions submitted from people around the world, with US production company Focus Features billing the film as ďthe first in which a Pope addresses the audience directly, discussing topics such as ecology, immigration, consumerism and social justiceĒ.

    From the dawn of history, elites have always attempted to enslave humanity.¬† Yes, there have certainly been times when those in power have slaughtered vast numbers of people, but normally those in power find it much more beneficial to profit from the labor of those that they are able to subjugate.¬† If you are forced to build a pyramid, or pay a third of your crops in tribute, or hand over nearly half of your paycheck in taxes, that enriches those in power at your expense.¬† You become a ‚Äúhuman resource‚ÄĚ that is being exploited to serve the interests of...

    Schoolís back ó and so is the liberal agenda! Across the country, parents and lawmakers are up in arms about an honors curriculum that gives new meaning to the phrase ďhistory in the making.Ē The 95-page outline is so agenda-driven, educators complain, that basic U.S. facts are either distorted ó or worse, omitted altogether. The College Boardís proposal is a study in liberal indoctrination ó so much so that the Republican National Committee (RNC) formally opposed the idea in August. In a vote, the RNC concluded that the Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum is a ďradical revisionist viewĒ of Americaís greatest...

    On June 2nd, President Obama announced new EPA regulations that would impose significant restrictions on power plants. Last week, environmental activists gathered in front of the EPA headquarters to show their support for the new regulations. [Ö] The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates the regulations could put 224,000 Americans out of work annually and increase electricity costs by more than $289 billion. Even the EPA itself estimates that the new regulations will cause electricity prices to increase dramatically over the next 6 years. Ö

    Not content with imposing the highest corporate tax structure in the ďfreeĒ world, Democrat hacks in the legislature are now asking the Imperial President to unilaterally take action. A group of tax happy corporate protectionists are hoping the President uses his "pen and his phone" to start punishing American businesses that have the audacity to lower their corporate tax burden. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), Dick Durbin (D-Ill), and Jack Reed (D-RI), have crafted a letter (yeahÖ It took three of them) to President Obama requesting that action be taken toward businesses that have sheltered themselves from some US taxes.

    Exploring his family's past for the first time, Richard Roxburgh uncovered a darker history than he anticipated- finding out his forefathers were enthusiastic supporters of the slave trade. The 52 year-old actor says he'd originally hoped the search would find his relatives 'lived good and rich lives, and contributed something.' But participating in the SBS series Who Do You Think You Are turned up a very different history. ..................................................... 'Thomas was the ultimate capitalist,' the actor says. 'To my mind, itís about the choices that you make in this life, and he made his choice. And they wouldnít be my...

    A Florida jury has slammed the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. with $23.6 billion in punitive damages in a lawsuit filed by the widow of a longtime smoker who died of lung cancer in 1996. The case is one of thousands filed in Florida after the state Supreme Court in 2006 tossed out a $145 billion class action verdict. That ruling also said smokers and their families need only prove addiction and that smoking caused their illnesses or deaths. Last year, Florida's highest court re-approved that decision, which made it easier for sick smokers or their survivors to pursue lawsuits against...

    LOS ANGELES ( ó Annual May Day marches are scheduled to take place Thursday in downtown Los Angeles. The demonstrations are a show of support for immigrants who arenít in the United States legally. Marchers plan to urge Congress to pass legislation overhauling the immigration system by putting an end to deportations that divide families. The event typically causes a major traffic tie-up throughout downtown. The march itself will begin at 10 a.m. starting at the Chinatown Gateway, winding through the downtown area and ending at the Metropolitan Detention Center at 535 N. Alameda St., where a rally will be...

    American Thinker ^ | 3-31-14 | Bruce Walker
    In a recent interview, Oliver Stone, defender of Marxist thugs, complained that ďJewish domination of the mediaĒ prevents Americans from putting the Holocaust in context. Stone also opined that Hitler was the product of industrialists and that the Nazi invasion of Russia caused more deaths than the Holocaust. In one fell swoop, Stone revealed the Orwellian thought control that is the black heart of leftism. The Holocaust was a crime of almost unimaginable human suffering, and if Stoneís remarks were intended to remind us that Polish Catholics and Gypsies, particularly, suffered genocide at Nazi hands as well, then perhaps Stone...

    It might seem strange to say it, but I am a global warming skeptic because of Carl Sagan. This might seem strange because Sagan was an early promoter of the theory that man-made emissions of carbon dioxide are going to fry the globe. But it‚Äôs not so strange when you consider the larger message that made Sagan famous. As with many people my age, Sagan‚Äôs 1980 series ‚ÄúCosmos,‚ÄĚ which aired on public television when I was eleven years old, was my introduction to science, and it changed my life. ‚ÄúCosmos&88221; shared the latest developments in the sciences of evolution, astronomy,...

    Think youíre green? Not unless you ban or tax the common plastic bag that consumers use every day to carry their groceries, among other things. From California to Rhode Island, municipalities are considering Ė or have enacted Ė plastic bag bans or fees on consumers at the register when making a purchase. Reasons given for such restrictions to consumer choice are plenty, but the most common is that plastic bags are not recyclable (patently false), they take an excessive amount of natural resources and energy to manufacture (not true compared to alternatives) and they are the main culprit contributing to...
