  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

In a report released Thursday, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of Internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November "Information...

    I just wanted to stop in and say how very much all of us at the Firefighters for Bush site appreciated your support. I'm one of ten fire fighters who helped run the site. I'm still active working to educate fire fighters and confront union abuses. I posted my most recent article "The Fire Fighters Union and the Volunteer Fire Service." We've created another web site. One of the fire fighters started a young conservative’s site, another has his own blog. http://www.firefightersforbush.com/ I was doing my research today and bumped into this thread at Free Republic.

    chicago tribune ^ | 5/9/05 | Knight Ridder/Tribune News Service
    editorial,Chicago Tribune on Wednesday, June 8: snip ....Grades do measure important attributes: tenacity, organization, calculation and, especially, persistence. They do not, though, reliably measure passion, kindness or integrity. No matter what our transcripts say, most of us come to realize that desire trumps talent - and that, if you have a lousy attitude, neither of those strengths will bring fulfillment, or much else.
  • Kerry's Yale Grades Similar to Bush's

    06/07/2005 12:32:32 PM PDT · by Conservative Coulter Fan · 36 replies · 2,875+ views
    BOSTON - Sen. John F. Kerry (news, bio, voting record)'s grade average at Yale University was virtually identical to President Bush's record there, despite repeated portrayals of Kerry as the more intellectual candidate during the 2004 presidential campaign. Kerry had a cumulative average of 76 and got four Ds his freshman year — in geology, two history courses and political science, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday. His grades improved with time, and he averaged an 81 his senior year and earned an 89 — his highest grade — in political science as a senior. "I always told my dad that...

    Newly released Navy records of Sen. John Kerry show the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, who was portrayed as the intellectual superior of President Bush, actually received a lower academic average than his rival while studying at Yale, including five Ds. The transcript of grades, which Kerry has always declined to release, was part of a set of Naval records requested and finally received by the Boston Globe. Last month, Kerry gave the Navy permission to release the records to the paper, something he refused to do during last fall's campaign. While Bush and Kerry were at Yale, the school had...

    From Howard Kurtz's column in The Washington Post (online), Politics Section, 7 June 2005. "During last year's presidential campaign, John F. Kerry was the candidate often portrayed as intellectual and complex, while George W. Bush was the populist who mangled his sentences," the Boston Globe observes. "But newly released records show that Bush and Kerry had a virtually identical grade average at Yale University four decades ago. "In 1999, The New Yorker published a transcript indicating that Bush had received a cumulative score of 77 for his first three years at Yale and a roughly similar average under a non-numerical...

    Federal authorities confirmed yesterday that they are investigating prominent Republican donor Thomas W. Noe, who was President Bush’s re-election chairman in northwestern Ohio and has given tens of thousands to GOP candidates. U.S. Attorney Gregory A. White in Cleveland said the investigation of Noe, of Maumee, is related to campaign contributions. He declined to elaborate. "We are publicly acknowledging there is an investigation," White said. "It is ongoing." He said the investigation has been proceeding "for several months" but that there’s no date for completing it. Sources said a federal search warrant of Noe’s River Road home was executed last...

I have just met with 21 remarkable families. Each of them has answered the call to ensure that our society's most vulnerable members are protected and defended at every stage of life. The families here today have either adopted or given up for adoption frozen embryos that remained after fertility treatments. Rather than discard these embryos created during in vitro fertilization, or turn them over for research that destroys them,...

    On the surface, the 2004 election looked very much like the 2000 election. George W. Bush was again running against a liberal Democrat who had spent much of his career in the Senate and who had clinched his nomination by early victories in Iowa and New Hampshire. In November, 47 of the 50 states and the District of Columbia voted for the candidate of the same party as they had in 2000. Only three states switched, New Hampshire to the Democrats, Iowa and New Mexico to the Republicans. Bush won again, this time without a court battle. Republicans ended up...

Lindorff’s take on how, and why, The New York Times killed a story on the controversy just before the November election gained wide attention this week after it was published in Extra!, a magazine produced by the media watchdog group...

    John Kerry managed the best showing since in decades for a Democratic presidential candidate among mainline Protestants, but his failure to capture a majority of Roman Catholics — people of his own faith — gave President Bush an important advantage in last November's election, according to a new survey. Bush's showing also improved dramatically among Hispanic Protestants, 63 percent of whom supported him in 2004 — a 31 percent gain over 2000. The postelection phone survey of 2,730 people, conducted by the University of Akron and sponsored by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, is a close study...
