    President Obama has grown fond of saying that he’s “not a dictator,” “not a king,” and “not the emperor,” but is instead “the president.” Whether his tendency to clarify a seemingly obvious point reveals his inner desires or not, his actions in a variety of ways suggest that he doesn’t think the president shares his fellow citizens’ ongoing obligation to obey the law. To the contrary, he seems to view the president as being somewhat above the law. The latest example involves Obama’s legal obligation to submit a budget by the first Monday in February. We’ve now passed the first...
  • Unemployed need not apply (employers have advertised jobs listing current employment as a condition)

    Unemployed need not applyPublished: June 3, 2011 One of the worst things about the plague of unemployment is that the longer a person is out of work, the harder it becomes to re-enter the work force. Technology moves on; skills fade. It always has been easier to move from one job to another than to move to a job from unemployment. But the problem has been compounded by the depth of the Great Recession, a glut of workers, at every conceivable skill level, and a paucity of jobs. Of about 4.4 million unemployed Americans, about 1.75 million have been out...

    The University of British Columbia ^ | June 30, 2010 | Media Release
    A new University of British Columbia study says that an overreliance on research subjects from the U.S. and other Western nations can produce false claims about human psychology and behavior because their psychological tendencies are highly unusual compared to the global population.According to the study, the majority of psychological research is conducted on subjects from Western nations, primarily university students. Between 2003 and 2007, 96 per cent of psychological samples came from countries with only 12 per cent of the world’s populations. The U.S. alone provided nearly 70 per cent of these subjects.However, the study finds significant psychological and behavioral...
  • Bush: Lessons of Communism Apply in Confronting Terrorism Today

    WASHINGTON, June 12, 2007 – Lessons of the Cold War are important, because the same hatred that led to millions of people’s deaths during the 20th century is still at work today in the world, President Bush said today as the dedication of the new Victims of Communism memorial here. Bush lauded the new memorial in the U.S. capital as a lasting tribute to an estimated 100 million innocent men, women and children whose lives were cut short by imperial communism. They include innocent Ukrainians starved to death during Josef Stalin’s great famine, Russians killed in his purges, and...

    SACRAMENTO - After decades of wealthy and wealthier candidates running for governor, voters may this year glimpse the future of California politics: Mega-millionaires -- perhaps only mega-millionaires -- cracking open their checkbooks for a chance to run the Golden State. California has had its share of the rich running for office, but never quite like this year's governor's race, in which all three major candidates have amassed personal fortunes. Combined, movie star Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- believed to be the richest governor in the nation -- former eBay executive turned Controller Steve Westly and former real estate developer turned state...

    White males need not apply Internal e-mail reveals hiring ban at Public Works Tom Blackwell National Post Saturday, November 19, 2005 A major federal department has temporarily banned the hiring of able-bodied white men in an unusual move critics say could spark a backlash against the very disadvantaged groups it is meant to help. Managers in the Public Works department must hire only visible minorities, women, aboriginals and the disabled, except with written permission from their superiors, David Marshall, the deputy minister, ordered in an e-mail circulated yesterday. The policy, designed to address shortfalls in the department's employment-equity goals, will...

    On November 8, 2004, a U.S. federal judge ruled that the Bush administration had improperly ignored the Geneva Conventions in establishing military commissions to try detainees at the Guantánamo Bay U.S. naval base as war criminals. Ted Lapkin's timely article delves into the complexities of the Geneva Conventions, and how much they should apply to the war on terrorism. —The Editors.
