  • UNC professor teaches white males are the root of ‘hate speech’

    The Extract ^ | June 8, 2016
    With safe spaces and secluded free-speech zones popping up on college campuses across the U.S., it is hardly surprising that a professor would use seminar time to rail against the evils of so-called hate speech. What one University of North Carolina instructor offers in his “Hate Speech” course, however, goes far beyond merely encouraging students to be inclusive in their rhetoric.

    Hillary Clinton has secured enough delegates to win the Democratic presidential nomination, according to the Associated Press, emerging from a long and bruising primary season to become the first woman to lead a major party in the race for the White House. A bitter nomination battle that Clinton was once expected to win in a walk ended abruptly late Monday, as she claimed exactly the number of delegates needed to secure victory in her contest against Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, according the AP’s latest tally. Clinton was widely expected — even inside her own campaign — to clinch the...
  • Anti-Trump video that features women is a fail

    Have you seen the anti-Trump video that features women quoting Donald Trump’s most offensive statements about women? I just showed it to a woman. She thought it was funny. Apparently nothing that Trump says comes off as offensive to her. The reason I checked with a woman is because I didn’t trust my own reaction. To me, the video looked like the most tone-deaf ad of all time. I would rank it as among the worst I have ever seen in terms of persuasion. I’m guessing it worked in Trump’s favor. ...snip..... I predict that 85% of women and 95%...

    Rosie and Whoopi may be abandoned soon as “The View” receives poor ratings. Countrywide, viewers are tired of the yelling matches, and arguments that mock Jesus, the bible, white people etc. Reports show ratings have plunged due to Rosie and Whoopi’s continuous bickering back and forth, and the audience is complaining that the two constantly interrupt interviewers as well. This long-running show may be in their final season. Not only is there a bad vibe on set, but producers are fed up working around them. ABC is considering extending Good Morning America. Watch:

    Newt has the right to fight back against his competitors, I have no problem with that. However when he starts by sounding like Obama and using the class warfare card on Romney's wealth, it is just plain stupid. Now his latest quip about taxing the blind, and scraping the bottom of the barrell is just more over the top whining. I really think Newt is probably the smartest and best informed candidate. However, his achilles heal has always been his ego, and the inability to handle rejection or negativity (a major part of politics) in a grown up fashion. It...

    T o many, America’s industrial heartland may look like a place mired in the economic past—a place that, outcompeted by manufacturing countries around the world, has too little work to offer its residents. But things look very different to Karen Wright, the CEO of Ariel Corporation in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Wright’s biggest problem isn’t a lack of work; it’s a lack of skilled workers. “We have a very skilled workforce, but they are getting older,” says Wright, who employs 1,200 people at three Ohio factories. “I don’t know where we are going to find replacements.” That may sound odd, given...

I was "casually concealed" in which I was using a serpa II OWB holster, but my sweater covers most of it, and when I have my jacket on it completely covers it. During the course of my meal I was getting warm, so I took my jacket off, and I caught the glance of some lady and her friend. They clearly saw my gun and acted as if they wanted to flee in horror. As I finished eating and paid for my meal, one of the women got up...

A friend-of-the-court brief filed last Thursday in the case of Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services argues that DOMA, which protects marriage as between a man and a woman in federal law, imposes crippling burdens on employers.

    National Review ^ | 11/01/2011 | Andrew G. Biggs
    Education Secretary Arne Duncan thinks public-school teachers are “desperately underpaid” and has called for doubling teacher salaries. In a new paper co-authored with Jason Richwine of the Heritage Foundation, I look into whether teachers really are desperately underpaid, or underpaid at all. Jason and I find that the conventional wisdom is far off the truth. At first glance, public-school teachers definitely look underpaid. According to Census data, teachers receive salaries around 20 percent lower than similarly educated private-sector workers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says teachers’ benefits are about the same as benefits in the private sector. But both the...

    Forty years ago, women in North America began a sustained and organized protest against entrenched interests that denied them equal opportunity in the workplace, equal pay and the right to be taken seriously as candidates for public office. The backlash was immediate and furious: Women didn't deserve to be paid as much as men. Their natural talents confined them to teaching and nursing. They were not smart enough, well-informed enough or tough enough to run for public office. If Michele Bachmann had emerged 40 years ago, it would have felt like the Old Boys who ran the world had a...

    The scene is reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz scene when hordes of winged monkeys are poised on the castle parapet, ready to snatch up Dorothy and her three affable sidekicks. But this time it's not a harmless fairytale, it's a cabal of feminists determined to turn our society into a socialist paradise. These women dismiss any criticism with a "to the victors go the spoils" shrug. But the fact is, men played a major role in handing Barack Obama his White House victory. During the Democratic primaries, Barack beat Hillary in large part due to support from the male...

    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama may be competing in the South Carolina Democratic Primary Saturday, but they're also vying for the top prize in another contest: The Oppression Sweepstakes. That's how Michael Jelani Cobb, an African-American historian, describes the surge of venom that recently erupted between the Clinton and Obama camps. The sweepstakes kicks in when two excluded groups find themselves competing for the same prize. He says that took place in the 19th century when the abolitionist, Frederick Douglass and his ally, women's rights' activist, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, argued over what group should first be...

    Veteran actress and feminist Jane Fonda has been slammed for not paying her female employees working in the actress' radio network Green Stone Media. The twice Oscar winner and the radio network's co-founder Gloria Steinem have been accused of "putting their own reputations above their female employees' finances." According to the New York Post, Fonda and Steinem are 'refusing to pay severance, and the founders won't file for bankruptcy protection because it would publicly embarrass Jane and Gloria.' However, the 'Klute' star's spokesperson has denied the reports and said that the accusations are unfounded. "This is pure speculation. There is...

In the 1940s it was common to see the likes of Rita Hayworth and Jane Russell adorning the fronts of Lancaster bombers and flying fortresses setting off en route to their German targets. Countless more pictures of anonymous girls were splashed across aircraft, in poses almost as risque as their crews' missions were risky. Sixty years on, when British airmen fighting the Taliban in...

    When the British Ministry of Defense found out that Harrier pilots and ground crews in Afghanistan had painted racy images ("nose art") on their aircraft, they ordered the troops to cease and desist. In addition to the possibility of women in the Royal Air Force complaining (none have, so far), there was the risk that some Afghans would be offended. No Afghans have complained yet, and Afghan men who had seen the nose art, usually studied it intently. The concept of nose are was invented by American pilots and ground crews during World War II, and quickly adopted by their...

The Law is not his, as he acknowledges, but is an old idea that there is an inherent dichotomy in the world around us. Natural phenomena would include light and dark, good and evil, or man and woman (one can see that Taoism plays a large part in Wylie's theories). Wylie also extends the law to include responses to environmental stimuli. He writes that the law recognizes "Newton's...

    BOISE, Idaho -- An Idaho woman once held up by the Bush administration as a crusader against domestic violence has become entangled in a case that involves meth, death and many unanswered questions. Barbara Dehl, 49, was held Friday in the Ada County Jail. This past week, a grand jury indicted her on two felony counts of kidnapping and one count of trafficking methamphetamine. The charges stand in stark contrast to Dehl's life five years ago, when she stood with teary eyes next to Republican Gov. Dirk Kempthorne as he signed a law named after Dehl's deceased daughter, Cassandra Dehl....

    Researchers help define what makes a political conservative By Kathleen Maclay, Media Relations | 22 July 2003 BERKELEY – Politically conservative agendas may range from supporting the Vietnam War to upholding traditional moral and religious values to opposing welfare. But are there consistent underlying motivations? Four researchers who culled through 50 years of research literature about the psychology of conservatism report that at the core of political conservatism is the resistance to change and a tolerance for inequality, and that some of the common psychological factors linked to political conservatism include: * Fear and aggression * Dogmatism and intolerance of...

    Ridiculous man-hating lesbiansMike S. Adams (archive) June 9, 2003 | Print | Send Dear Women's Studies Professor:I recently read the comments you made to a local newspaper during Womyn's Herstory Month (WHM), which, I believe, used to be referred to as "March." It may surprise you to know that I agree with your assertion that the university used bad judgement in sponsoring a concert by the rapper Ludacris during WHM. I don't think there is ever a good time to have the rapper sing about "bi***es" and  "hos" in the name of campus diversity.I also agreed when you told the...

    Senator Clinton has repeatedly vowed to finish out her first term, which ends in 2006. But she would be foolish to pass up the 2004 opportunity, especially if President Bush's economic plans start to crash and burn and his war whoops lead to body bags. Clinton would leap to the front of the pack on name recognition alone. She's a terrific fundraiser and New York voters would forgive her if she made a credible but unsuccessful run. She would return to the Senate as a more powerful member and be a battle-tested contender for 2008. COLLEGE PARK, MD. -...
