  • ESPN Insider: Suspensions Creating "Minefield" For Shout Show Hosts

    Education reformers often cite reducing suspensions in our nation's schools as a top priority. Lots of recent studies show that this form of punishment does more harm than good. They might do well to read some of those studies over at ESPN's Bristol campus, where the lords of discipline are now handing out suspensions at a rate that would make even an old school junior high principal wobble. Pundits tasked with discussing controversial topics on cue—and, above all, inspiring a reaction—are now worried not just about doing their jobs, but about not saying the wrong thing, even if no one...

    When is the Correct Time to Burn Fallen Trees? Has the forest benefitted from government interference with Mother Nature? When the government does not allow the forest to burn off naturally the result is uncontrollable fires in the future. I think they may be a correlation between all misguided government endeavors and the outcomes. The government interferes with the natural order of the economy and the economy remains broken. The government interferes with the world’s absolutely finest most advanced health care delivery system and chaos results. The government attempts to correct poverty results in more poverty. The government borrows money...

    (Judicial Watch) — In this new era of political correctness, the U.S. Army has published a special handbook for soldiers that appears to justify Islamic jihad by describing it as the “communal military defense of Islam and Muslims when they are threatened or under attack.” Because radical Muslim groups consider Islam to be perpetually under moral, spiritual, economic, political and military attack by the “secular west” they consider military jihad a “constant necessity” and use it as a “rallying cry to resist and attack all this is un-Islamic,” according to the new Army manual. The handbook was created to help...

    Brian Young had big plans for his church's IT strategy. But his vision suffered a serious setback this summer after Google Inc. altered its nonprofit program to prohibit all churches and religious organizations from participating. For years, the search and software giant individually offered some of its products—including its office software and popular Gmail—for free or discounted use to qualifying nonprofits. Eligibility requirements varied by product, but churches and faith-based groups were welcome to use some. All of that changed in mid-March when the company launched "Google for Nonprofits." The new initiative united a robust set of Google's tools into...

Great read, places the blame on political correctness, a failing system of tenure, lack of discipline in the school, parents, says, "If it takes a village to raise a child then it also takes a village to raise an idiot!" and we are raising a lot of idiots.

    When I try to have a peaceful, non-political chat with my liberal, leftist acquaintances, why does it always end up with them shouting and cursing at me about my stupidity and obvious hatred for others? It always begins with them saying something like, "I don't want to get started in on politics, but why did Allen West attack Debbie Wasserman Schultz like that? After all, she's a woman and a breast cancer survivor." When I try to explain that he was merely defending himself from her baseless charges, the stuff hits the fan.

    This is a strange day and time to be a member of the United States military. At a time when special interest groups beg a sympathetic President to allow gays in the military, the military is taking a hard line stance on Christian speakers. In the past two months the armed forces have rejected public speaking engagements featuring two of America's most prominent Christian leaders. First, Tony Perkins the president of the Family Research Council was dis-invited to speak at Andrews Air Force base. On the heels of that decision, the Pentagon dis-invited Franklin Graham to speak during the National...

The federal Parliamentary Secretary for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs Andrew Robb called on more than 100 Australian imams and Muslim leaders attending a government-sponsored conference to denounce extremist misrepresentations of Islam. "We live in a world of global terrorism where vile acts are regularly being perpetrated in the name of your faith," Mr Robb told the two-day conference. "Because it is your faith that is being invoked as justification for these evil acts, it is your problem. "You cannot...

    TORONTO - Seventeen alleged Islamic terrorists were arrested in Canada recently, leaving approximately 50 more terrorist cells to go, according to federal spy agency sources. But even with authorities acknowledging that more arrests are inevitable, there’s one thing that could hinder further takedowns: political correctness. Since the terror busts, some Canadian journalists have been busy spitballing accusations of ethnic insensitivity at each other from the nation’s editorial pages. Obviously, they’d rather be picking the lint out of each other’s navels than worrying about the folks who want to kill us. Meanwhile, the political climate here is so charged that politicians,...

The Lower Burrell school superintendent said consuming and passing out the gum violates the school's drug awareness policy. That's because caffeine is considered a stimulant. Parents told Channel 11 they did not understand the suspension. Resident Elizabeth Grombacher said, "I think it's stupid. Everything's getting too politically correct it's so wrong." "It's probably just like Mountain Dew or something like that. If it's got a lot of caffeine in it and they probably...

    HELENA Representative Denny Rehberg has introduced legislation that would exclude illegal immigrants from the population counts that determine the number of U-S House seats each state receives. Rehberg says counting illegal immigrants as part of the population skews Congressional representation. His bill is the House companion to similar legislation introduced in the Senate earlier this month by Senator Conrad Burns. Rehberg says Montana is the largest congressional district in the country, based on population, with 940-thousand residents. The average House district has 650-thousand residents. The bill, if passed, would shift House seats from growing border states to smaller states with...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In the midst of one of the greatest challenges we have ever faced, we in the Western world have developed a serious communications problem. In this era of hyper-sensitivity and political-correctness, words no longer have meaning. Those who are good are too often portrayed as evil; indefensibly wicked acts are made less so by the way they are described. Words like "hero" and "hatred" have lost definition. In the midst of a struggle for survival, the inability to discern attackers from allies, friends from foes and heroes from cowards is potentially catastrophic. Earlier this week, Scotland Yard...

    As is often the case these days, offensive language or behavior is defined in the eye of the beholder. It depends on whether one subscribes to old school or new age definitions of words that have been around for centuries. This word discrimination used to be a compliment of sorts, as in "one has discriminating tastes" based on the old school definition "To make a clear distinction; distinguish: discriminate among the options available. To make sensible decisions; judge wisely." Of course the new age definition is much less flattering, "to treat one person or group worse than others or better...

Nixon (Class of 1937). On a side note, some would say that Kenneth Starr (Class of 1973) is the runner-up. Regardless, our legendary alum served as a two-term congressman, senator, two-term Vice-President and two-term President. Oh, and he lost a gubernatorial and presidential race…and had to resign from the presidency. But, that’s American history. Simply put, Nixon loved Duke, but Duke never loved Nixon. As...

The Ides of March, 2005 was the first day consumers could purchase one of the world’s most widely read Bibles, the New International Version–fully "revised". Archaic language in the Holy Book must have been getting to the tragically hip. So much so that a team of 15 American and British scholars were sent to parse and modernize it. Would it be too politically correct to say what the scholars really did? They watered the offensive Bible down and whitewashed its words under the time-wasting guise of only wanting to modernize it.

Despite the fact that the show had featured non ethnic bad guys as well as those from other ethnic groups in the past, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) accused the Fox Network of stereotyping Muslims and helping to escalate Islamophobia throughout the United States. After a meeting last month between CAIR and Fox execs, the network agreed to read a disclaimer before the offending show was aired. The following was read at the beginning of the program:...

While Western media focused on events in Sadr City, Najaf, and Karbala, violence occurred elsewhere as well.

    The letter arrived via email with little fanfare, but the content gave a rare glimpse at what the liberal left is really all about: "If you don’t agree with us we’ll throw you in jail!" That’s the gist of the letter received by Canada Free Press on November 27. Written by Gloria Bergen the letter’s introduction was straight and to the point, if not reflective of a less than stellar education or intellect, given the grammatically challenged lack of nuance: "Re: your article in the free press. (By your tone, and obvious despisal (sic) of the anti-Bush protestors, you and...
  • Has America Learned from 9/11?

    As Americans pick a president, one key criterion is how the war on terror is going. Is President Bush correct in his positive view or Senator Kerry in his negative one?This same debate, interestingly, is also taking place within conservative circles, where analysts sharing the same basic outlook - that Americans are fighting for their very existence - come to dramatically different conclusions. Consider the contrasting views of two important voices on the right, Mark Helprin and Tod Lindberg.Mr. Helprin, author of such powerful novels as A Soldier of the Great War and Winter's Tale, writes a despairing analysis in...

    May 15, 2004 Letters Diversity So, the entire Florida Bar is off on the road to diversity. Reminds me of the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movies of comedic knights — errant on their way to some exotic location, except, of course, that Bob and Bing were a lot funnier than The Florida Bar, and had a better idea of where they were going. The Florida Bar leadership has been in lock-step, tooting its diversity horns and banging its diversity drums for the last 20 years, and the parade has gone nowhere. So, that having failed, they have resolved to...

    The Hunley Burial This site does not engage in rebel flag waving nor does it have any intention of refighting the Civil War. That being said, we have the utmost respect for the men, women (yes, there were) and children who stood up for their right to freely exit a union they freely entered. This past weekend, the crew members of The Hunley, the first submarine to ever successfully sink an enemy ship were laid to rest in Charleston, SC. Fourteen governers from the south were invited to attend. A grand total of zero showed up. While some cited scheduling...

    Trevor is a junior at Westside High School in Omaha, Nebraska. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day Trevor, along with a couple of friends, decided to orchestrate a campaign that he be named the recipient of the "Distinguished African American Student Award" for next year. In the best American political tradition, they printed and plastered throughout the school about 150 posters showing a smiling Trevor giving a thumbs up and encouraging votes for him. The award has been given for eight years on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to a senior selected by teachers. There was only one slight problem....

    Pre-dawn call brings abuse to light Man alerts Akron police after seeing three boys walking toward I-77 By Andale Gross Beacon Journal staff writer Jeff Russell did a double take when he drove past three children a week ago in the chilly pre-dawn hours walking toward the highway. Three boys dressed in T-shirts, the smallest riding on the shoulders of one of the older boys, were heading north on East Avenue near Interstate 77, about a mile away from their Florida Avenue home in Kenmore. They had walked past houses and car lots and were near a gas station. Russell,...
  • Noam Chomsky: Fake Linguist

    Pariah Against A Prophet By Marc Miyake, Amritas.Com Many conservatives regard Chomsky as a linguist who falters out of his field. Unfortunately, they are giving Chomsky too much credit. Chomsky's linguistics are as warped as his politics. As someone with a PhD in linguistics, I think I am qualified to judge his professional credentials. Prior to Chomsky, linguists engaged in a lot of data collection to understand the diversity of human language. I'm vehemently anti-PC, but in this case, I think the word 'diversity' is justified. There's a lot out there, and someone's got to catalog it. However, Chomsky...

    Our take on 2002 AD (make that CE, copy desk!) is that it was a signal year for the advocates of political correctness, with the thought police trampling on the individual rights of many. (Eat your heart out, Naomi Klein.) And the usual handful of insensitive idiots did just plain dumb things for all the wrong reasons. - At the Royal Ontario Museum, the system of dating exhibits from AD and BC was shelved in favour of the Christ-denying labels CE and BCE, whatever they may mean. And this was done --get this Monty Python! -- even as the ROM...
