It suffices for an intransigent minority –a certain type of intransigent minorities –to reach a minutely small level, say three or four percent of the total population, for the entire population to have to submit to their preferences.

  • Are Atheists Really a Persecuted Minority?

    05/21/2017 3:44:58 PM PDT · by CHRISTIAN DIARIST · 19 replies
    Will Gervais and Maxine Najle are co-authors of a study suggesting that far more Americans are atheist than previously thought. The dubious claim by Gervais, director of the University of Kentuckys Beliefs and Morality Lab (Bam! for short), and Najle, a grad student advised by Gervais, provided fodder for a fake news story posted this past week on the website FiveThirtyEight. Attitudes about atheists are quickly changing, driven by the same powerful force that transformed opinion on gay rights, wrote Daniel Cox, who hyped the study by Gervais and Najle. Dismissing recent studies in which no more than 3 percent...

    We have previously mentioned the re-write of the AP guide for History. The new AP guide for teaching History is nothing less than (yet another) declaration of war against the very essence of America. Elizabeth Price Foley over at Instapundit has termed the MiniTru approved truth as the oppression narrative. An apt label for an education system that tears down American civilization as an evil and replaces it with a Howard Zinnified version of reality. As Foley notes: How about just teaching our children about the founding, the Constitution, and the major historical eras? It isnt a cultural anthropology or...

    WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS SF) Two Democratic stalwarts from Massachusetts are suggesting that Rep. Nancy Pelosi should leave the partys leadership team in Congress after big electoral loses last year and in 2010. Reps. Michael Capuano and Stephen Lynch made the statements on WGBHs Greater Boston, with Lynch predicting outright that Nancy Pelosi will not lead us back into the majority. Asked by host Jim Braude if the answer to the question whether Pelosi should go? is yes, Lynch said, Right. Capuano was also asked if the 75-year-old Pelosi should quit leadership ranks. He said: That, or she should change, one...

    White children will be outnumbered by minority kids in the United States in just five years, new Census Bureau projections reveal. This is the result of an ongoing trend of declining birth among white Americans and a baby boom among immigrant groups, as well as a surge in immigration. By the year 2020, 50.2 percent of all children in the US are expected to be non-white, according to the Census. By 2044, whites will be outnumbered by minorities. The Census study, released this week, predicts that by year 2060, nearly 20 percent of the population will be foreign born -...

Read lots and lots of books, even some good ones during the break. So because -- I have not been able to read. They have told me if you have an eye that's healing and you try to overwork your good eye, it puts too much pressure on it. So I haven't been reading. I'm now on rehab so last night for example...

    Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid faces a tough task as his conference transitions to the Senate minority next year. The Nevada Democrat is leading a divided party smarting from a midterm election that saw Senate Democrats lose eight seats. It includes a number of centrists who could be eager to cut deals with the new GOP majority, particularly after watching several centrist incumbents fall in the 2014 midterms. But Reid must also lead liberals hoping to give Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who many Democrats viewed as an obstructionist over the last several years, a taste of his own...

    Recently I wrote about the prospects of Democrats facing a long minority in the House of Representatives. The same is true of the Senate. Democrats have tried to put a brave face on the 2014 results, noting that in 2016 the Senate map will favor their party, when the Senate Class of 2010 the Republican landslide midterm face voters. A review of those races, however, suggests that some states may in a good year be able to gain three seats Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin but the other imagined tough race for Republicans would require a Democrat...

    The Republican Leadership may be doing just fine with the Wall Street crowd and extremists who oppose birth control, but for the majority of ordinary Americans its actions over the last several weeks have rapidly begun to seal its fate as a minority party. First, let's start with the fact that the Republican Party is -- at this very moment -- a distinctly minority party in American politics. The Gallup poll reports that the number of Americans identifying as Republicans has fallen to its lowest level in the quarter century it has been tracking the number: 25 percent.
  • Latino leaders urge Barack Obama: Hire us

    When top Hispanic lawmakers met with President Barack Obama earlier this year, the first issue they brought up wasnt immigration reform. Their ask: Hire more Latinos. And they havent let up, requesting meetings and pressing Obama and White House officials to make progress on diversifying the administration. They want a progress report by the end of the year. The push is part of a broader change in strategy for Hispanic leaders. The movement built up its power as the fastest growing Democratic voting bloc in the country, one Obama himself relied on in both of his presidential campaigns.
