  • Scotland to be first UK country to impose smacking ban (spanking ban)

    ‘Reasonable’ physical chastisement is currently allowed to discipline children, which means smacks to the body will generally avoid prosecution, but blows to the head or with an implement are strictly prohibited. But the Scottish Government has now backed moves to give children the same protection from assault as adults. A vote later today is expected to overwhelmingly pass a bill that will completely outlaw smacking, meaning parents and carers could potentially face prosecution for any use of physical punishment upon children. The bill was initially proposed by the Scottish Green Party, and has won cross-party support, with all but the...

    The [Duke] Chronicle ^ | 01/16/2019 | Nathan Heffernan
    In the past few years, anti-politically correct (PC) movements have grown in popularity and vigor. Groups of young college conservatives have criticized the liberal hold on universities and conservative activists have mocked censorship and “sensitivity” among young millennials. The sentiment that “people get offended by anything these days” seems to be growing among the larger population. Scandals of comedians getting booted from gigs for racially insensitive remarks or being fired from hosting an awards ceremony due to old homophobic tweets have sparked discussion over whether PC culture has gone too far. Even at Duke, students and professors complain about the...

    "Nobody Owes You Anything" – Author Unknown Wow -- whoever wrote this piece was clearly on a roll! "Nobody owes you anything. In this life we get nothing except through effort and hard work." I have BREAKING NEWS for all those that want to erase American history during the day or in the dead of night: If you take down every statue on the continent, slavery and the American Civil War will still have happened. If you have minimum wage skills now, taking downstatues won't change that. If you're up to your ass in college loan debt, taking downstatues won't...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | March 29, 2016 | Mike Moffit
    A black woman identified as a San Francisco State University employee accuses a white student wearing dreadlocks of "cultural appropriation" in a new video. *** SFGate contacted San Francisco State for a comment regarding the authenticity of the video, but has not received a reply. In the video, the woman accosts the student in a hallway of a campus building. "You're saying I can't have a hairstyle because of your culture? Why?" asks the incredulous student. "Because it's my culture," the woman says. The man informs her that dreadlocks we're "in Egyptian culture" and asks rhetorically "Are you Egyptian? Nah,...

    Students at the University of Oxford will hold a demonstration to “demand the glorifying statue of Cecil Rhodes – a brutal, racist colonial oppressor – be taken down” from a historic, grade one listed building. The protest has been organised by the #RhodesMustFallOxford campaign, set up in July, which describes itself as “a movement for the decolonisation of the curriculum, institutional memory and culture, and overall educational space at Oxford.” The students, at one of the best universities in the world, claim to be “oppressed.”

    WASHINGTON (CNN) —Donald Trump on Thursday declined to correct a supporter of his who alleged that President Barack Obama is Muslim and not an American. "We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims," said the unidentified man who spoke at a question-and-answer town hall event in Rochester, New Hampshire. "You know our current president is one. You know he's not even an American." A seemingly bewildered Trump interrupted the man, chuckling, "We need this question?

    Townhall ^ | 06/16/2015 | Susan Stamper Brown
    Political correctness is a contradiction of reality and distortion of morality that necessitates relentless government intervention devised by those who seek to control our lives. These self-appointed "Speech Sheriffs" warn us that words spoken outside the imaginary perimeters they've set are judgmental, negative, racist or intolerant. The goal of these elitists is to subtly subvert society by controlling speech. When speech is controlled, it's easy to control behavior. PC has infiltrated and corrupted just about every facet of our lives, including businesses, the news media, sports, churches, the military and universities.

    New York Post ^ | June 6, 2015 | Kyle Smith
    It happened without a Summer of Love, without Timothy Leary, without a groovy anthem or a shaggy new national look. In the past decade or so, there’s been a silent revolution in American culture, one at least as profound as the ’60s upheavals. We’ve hardly taken notice of it, because it happened in people’s minds instead of in the streets, happened in ordinary people instead of in the elites and the punditocracy. Compared to just a few years ago, we have a completely different set of ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior. As Caitlyn Jenner puts it in her new...

    Deadspin ^ | August 13, 2014 | Dave McKeena
    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...
  • New “Politically Correct” Army Manual Defends Jihad

    Pat Dollard ^ | 12/21/11 | Judicial Watch
    (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 little read by C.B. Picco a conservative public school teacher discussing the failure of American Public Schools and Society--how they are interconnected. 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. Really great read. I enjoyed it! http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Schools-Society-Whats-ebook/dp/B005H2H4JQ

    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. "You're as stupid and as biased as...

    Today is the first day of Hanukkah, Chanukah and/or חנוכה the Jewish holiday that is spelled a hundred ways in English. Along with the joy of the holiday is the sadness that this minor holiday is continually hijacked by the ACLU and other liberal groups who have no idea what the holiday means.
