  • A 'Hot Zone' In The Brain May Reveal When, And Even What, We Dream

    Most of us have about five dreams each night, though we're not likely to remember any of them. But a team of researchers has found a pattern of brain activity that seems to reveal not only when the brain is generating a dream, but something about the content of that dream. "When subjects were having [dream] experiences during sleep, there was a region in the back of the brain that tended to be very active, as if this region was a little bit more awake," says Francesca Siclari, a researcher at the Center for Research and Investigation in Sleep at...
  • Report: Trump Haunts Liberals in Their Dreams

    Many conservatives believe that liberalism is a mental disorder and this report from Yahoo News confirms it. Trump is haunting liberals in their sleep, forcing them to turn to drugs and alcohol and even causing them to gain weight. Winning! Yahoo News reports on some of the nightmares liberals are having: Susan Rogers, a poet and attorney in California, is “hurtling through space with no direction” on a plane that, she discovers with horror, has no pilot. Rachelle Pachtman, who does canine rescue on New York’s Upper West Side, is searching fruitlessly through her refrigerator for something to serve Michelle...

    **SNIP** It was during the remodel when Laurie Woodward, director of the school's student union, posed the question to others on the board, as well as students. "Does the MLK quote represent us today?" a student asked the board when the issue arose, according the Daily Emerald. Apparently, some students believed King's call for all people to be judged equally was not inclusive enough for some. "Diversity is so much more than race," sophomore Mia Ashley toldl the school paper. "Obviously race still plays a big role. But there are people who identify differently in gender and all sorts of...
  • How NASA crushed Hillary Clinton's dreams of being an astronaut

    Never let a day go by without learning something new if you can. For instance, I glanced through the news this morning and discovered something amazing: Hillary Clinton wanted to be an astronaut. This came as a bit of a shock, because from all the previous reporting I’d noticed regarding the presumptive Democrat nominee’s childhood dreams, I thought she wanted to be a Marine. (Before The Man crushed her hopes and dreams because she was a girl, that is.) But as it turns out, before she longed to storm the beaches at Iwo Jima, the future First Lady wanted to...

  • Colleges using coffers for financial aid to illegal immigrants stirs debate on immigration reform

    Several U.S. colleges are giving financial aid directly to students who are young illegal immigrants, extending the debate about helping people in the United States illegally at the expense of Americans who are in need of similar opportunities. Such opportunities have opened up since resident Obama's 2012 executive action that deferred deportation to millions of young people brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents. However, they still are largely ineligible for state or federal student aid. ... This policy not only encourages new illegal immigration, but comes at the expense of the college dreams of young Americans," Stephen Miller,...

    “I have fetus dreams, we all do here: dreams of abortions one after the other; of buckets of blood splashed on the walls; trees full of crawling fetuses. I dreamed that two men grabbed me and began to drag me away, ‘Let’s do an abortion,’ they said with a sickening leer, and I began to scream, plunged into a vision of sucking, scraping pain, of being spread and torn by impartial instruments that do only what they are bidden …” Abortion clinic worker Sallie Tisdale “We do Abortions Here” Harpers Magazine October 1987

    During Thursday night's California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state's schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English. Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were "all welcome in California," praised his administration's immigration policies. He said that California is "setting the pace" on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act).
  • dream–when you’re feeling blue

    08/30/2014 2:04:25 PM PDT · by jmaroneps37 · 5 replies
    “Dream,” with music and lyrics by Johnny Mercer, has been covered by dozens of artists. The song was introduced in 1945 by the Pied Pipers, and hit number 1. Not long after, Frank Sinatra released a version. Other well-known covers were done by Roy Orbison, Ella Fitzgerald, The Skylarks, and Michael Bublé. The first time I heard the song, I was probably five years old, and it was on someone’s AM radio—peppered with plenty of static, no doubt. It was to become one of my all time favorites. With the advent a few years ago of easy music downloads, a...
  • The American Dream Is Dead, And Good Riddance (Barf alert)

    New analysis confirms what many already assumed to be true: a sizable number of Americans can no longer afford the American Dream. Inspired by the new book, Chasing the American Dream, USA Today calculated that subsidizing the American Dream costs approximately $130,000 annually, meaning the dream is only within reach for about 1 in 8 American families. The shocking six-figure price tag generated international headlines. But instead of inspiring handwringing about how to make the American Dream more affordable, I hope these numbers show us something else: the American Dream as we know it is dead, and good riddance.

    Immigration activists plan to occupy House office buildings on Friday to protest GOP posiitons on illegal immigration. United We Dream, a youth-led group that supports expanding protection for illegal immigrants, announced members would protest inside the Rayburn House Office Building at 12:30 p.m. The group said it would target members from Arizona, California, Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Washington and Virginia. The group did not include a list of specific lawmakers. The House is not in session on Friday, however, and most lawmakers have returned to their home districts for the July 4...

    The crisis is sparking heated debate in Washington, where critics claim the Obama administration’s immigration policies are to blame, including the DREAM Act, which defers deportation for some children. Nearby residents who oppose the Escondido center said they’re concerned it will hurt property values, increase crime and cause other problems. But some also decried the idea of federal tax dollars being used for such purposes, especially in their city. “We want our City Council and the Planning Commission to push back to the federal government and adhere to the laws,” said Kitty Demry, who lives about a one-third of a...
  • Obama’s DREAM Amnesty Leads to Huge Surge in Illegal Alien Minors Invading US

    The compassionate move often isn’t what it seems. Obama’s unconstitutional and unilateral DREAM amnesty has led to a huge surge in illegal alien minors crossing into the US.Since the Border Patrol was forced by Obama Inc. to begin sending minors to local relatives, the number of minors increased including children so young that their crossing is downright dangerous to them. Because of Obama’s pro-alien move, there are twelve-year olds making the risky crossing.That’s what liberal “compassion” ends up accomplishing. The Texas-Mexico border is being overrun by a surge of young illegal immigrants who are traveling alone. So much so, that...

    Law professors Jonathan Turley of George Washington University and Nicholas Rosenkranz of Georgetown slammed President Obama’s “muscular presidency” as dangerously unconstitutional. The Federalist Society hosted these speakers in a panel discussion entitled, “Suspension of Laws: What are the Limits of Executive Authority?” jonathan turley Turley said that President Obama has completely ignored and “circumvented” Congress. After all of Obama’s rhetoric, speeches and subsequent actions, Turley said, “The irony is that he didn’t have to circumvent Congress” to achieve his own goals. As a law professor at George Washington, he could only say, “I’m left scratching my head” in trying to...

Her grandfather Cipriano Quillay flagged down a bus and watched her board. She was 12.

    The Queens Campaigner ^ | February 21, 2014 | Kelsey Durham
    Two state lawmakers from Queens had mixed reactions this week to news of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s initiative that would allow inmates to earn a college degree while serving their prison sentences. The proposal, announced Feb. 16, would use state dollars to fund college classes in 10 prisons across New York, one in each major region, the governor’s office said. The initiative is designed to encourage a lower risk of returning to crime and prison, which Cuomo’s office said happens 40 percent of the time in New York state after an inmate is released. Under the new initiative, inmates could earn...

    The biggest impediment to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s, dream of a society in which color is not considered important is the continued used of the extremely racist term "African-American". The term implies the descendants of slaves are a separate race whose members belong in Africa rather than the United States even though many have ancestors who were living in North America long before the American Revolution. The term "African American" arbitrarily segregates people by skin color. The term treats people with dark complexions as if they only had African ancestors even if more of their ancestors came from somewhere...

    Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers). At 1:10:55 he describes the “royal prerogative” that the Constitution was designed to eliminate but which Obama, through the growth of the administrative state and his own expansive view of executive discretion, is now flirting with. At 2:53:45, he applies...

    **SNIP** While lamenting that we are currently in the third day of a government shutdown, Pelosi cheered that we are also three days into the implementation of the Affordable Care Act — “A dream come true,” she said, “for many people in our country.” Under Obamacare, Pelosi asserted, “many people in our country… can fully realize the promise of our founders of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Healthier life, liberty to pursue their happiness.”
