    Youtube ^ | 01/23/17
    Though Planned Parenthood claims that women depend on them for prenatal care, Live Action investigators had an incredibly hard time finding facilities that offered it—though they found plenty offering abortions. Live Action contacted all 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates where undercover recording is permitted by state law, and only 5 facilities out of 97 said they provided prenatal care.

    Biz Pack Review ^ | 01/19/16 | Michael Dorstewitz
    When a Wisconsin manufacturer changed its previously liberal policy on Muslim prayer times, dozens of Somali Muslims claimed they were forced to walk out of their jobs. Before Thursday of last week, Muslims employed at Ariens Manufacturing were permitted to leave the production line two times per shift to pray two of their daily prayers to Mecca, according to local ABC affiliate WBAY Channel 2 News. A spokesman for the company said they were forced to change that policy, however. His statement said: We are asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms. Our manufacturing environment does...

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) celebrated Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day by denying its scope, Palestinian Media Watch revealed Sunday - claiming that instead of six million Jews killed by the Nazis, there were only 1-2 million. "Estimates regarding the number of Holocaust victims differ," an Op/Ed penned by columnist Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul for the official PA Al-Hayat Al-Jadida claimed. "The supporters of the Zionist movement have exaggerated the number of victims, claiming that it amounts to 6 million, whereas others, unbiased researchers, have estimated that there were between one and two million Jewish victims." "Regardless of the number, the bottom line...

    To add to Stanleys sage observations (both today and earlier this week), I argue in this weekends column that elections are not democracy and, in fact, that popular elections in a sharia culture that inevitably empower Islamic supremacists are innately anti-democratic which is why our commentariat ought to stop referring to Mohamed Morsi as Egypts democratically elected president. He is (or was) the popularly-elected in an anti-democratic society.

    Remember when housing was the primary aspirational asset for a still existent US middle class, to be purchased with some equity down by your average 30 year-old hoping to start a family in his or her brand new home, and, as the name implies, aspire to reach the American dream? Those days are long gone. Back in those days the interest rate on the 10 Year bond mattered as it determined the prevailing marginal affordability of leveraged real estate. That is no longer the case, at least not for about 90% of Americans, because as Goldman shows, while before the...

    1) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate Democrat campaign fund raising event. 2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against Black Americans when we have a Black President, a Black Attorney General, and roughly 8% of the FEDERAL workforce is black. 12% of the population is black. 3) Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH...
  • Out of 1.2 Million Federal Employees, Only 737 Denied Raises for Poor Performance

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 3/22/11 | Mark Hemingway
    Here's your eye-popping statistic of the day, courtesy Stephen Losey at Federal Times: Does job performance play a factor in employee raises and step increases? Unions defending the General Schedule say yes. But the latest numbers say clearly no. Only 737 out of more than 1.2 million GS employees or one in every 1,698 were denied a regularly scheduled step increase and accompanying raise in 2009 because of poor performance, according to data provided by the Office of Personnel Management at Federal Times' request. That equates to a 0.06 percent denial rate, which is far lower than any...
  • CA: June special election may be vote-by-mail only

    02/02/2011 5:30:14 PM PST · by NormsRevenge · 31 replies ^ | 2/2/11 | Phillip Matier,Andrew Ross
    Gov. Jerry Brown's planned special election in June asking voters to extend three state taxes could be an exclusively vote-by-mail ballot. If the idea being batted around takes off, it would be a first for California. The governor stated during his State of the State address Monday that he wants a "clear mandate" from the public for his plan, but he's also looking at his best chances of winning. And some advisers figure a mail vote would give him that chance. Why? A recent Public Policy Institute of California poll found that likely voters ages 35 to 54 were almost...

Shot on July 22 1941 almost exactly a year before the Frank family went into hiding the film captures the wedding day of the girl who "lived on the second floor at Merwedeplein 39.

    Only 367 women in France wear Islamic veils that cover their faces and bodies, a newspaper reported on Wednesday, undermining the position of politicians who are pushing for a ban on the garments. A panel of legislators is studying the issue of whether the number of women wearing such veils is on the rise and why. The panel is expected to say in coming months whether it backs a ban on the veils in public places, as advocated by some politicians. President Nicolas Sarkozy has stopped short of backing a ban, but has said the veils were "not welcome" in...

    President Obama said Monday that "only government" can shake the country out of recession, as he tried to settle doubts about his administration's costly economic recovery package during a prime-time press conference.

    WICHITA, Kan. Four Hispanic families are suing St. Anne's Catholic School over a policy that requires students to speak English at all times while at school. The lawsuit, filed Monday, calls for an end to the policy and asks for an order barring similar policies at other diocese schools. It seeks the return of one student to the school who was allegedly kicked out for refusing to sign the "English only" pledge. And it asks for court costs and unspecified damages for discrimination and emotional suffering.

    1. I first mentioned the Keith Ellison controversy more than a week ago (7.12.2007 in what to Read) when it was still fresh and mostly ignored. It has grown bigger since, and now it's backlash time. The anger and amazement at Ellison's words have turned into an understandable fear of overreaction.

    Lebanese aid 'only reaching political supporters' By Rania Abouzeid in Taibe (Filed: 13/09/2006) Hizbollah and its allies have been accused of favouring their supporters in the distribution of aid in southern Lebanon. The radical Muslim movement, whose conflict with Israel saw Lebanese homes and infrastructure bear the brunt of the destruction, holds sway throughout most of the south. But in many places it shares power on local municipal councils with its allies and Shia co-religionists in the Amal Movement, as well as the Communists. Hizbollah has a long-held reputation among locals for honesty. But the movement is now attracting complaints...

    AUSTIN Jim Fuller, Libertarian candidate for Texas House District 38, has died. Fuller was vacationing at his stepsons house in Kalamazoo, Mich., when he did not wake up the morning of Aug. 12, said Floyd Murray, his stepson.

Closing borders and restricting travel will do very little.The conclusions mirror those reached earlier this month by a separate group working with a different model in the...

    'Only a fraction of Teheran's brutality has come to light' By Kim Willsher in Auvers-sur-Oise (Filed: 19/03/2006) She is the female figurehead of what she hopes will become a new Iranian revolution. Now, after almost 25 years in exile, the world is beginning to beat a path to her door. Maryam Rajavi wants those who visit her near Paris to know what sort of regime Iran's mullahs are running. As the leader of the largest exiled Iranian opposition group, she talks angrily of the 15-year-old boy flogged to death for eating during Ramadan, and the girl of 13 buried up...

Imagine for a moment that you are so outraged by the riots in Pakistan that you and 10,000 of your closest friends and family decide to protest. So you go to your flag locker and pull out your Pakistani flag to burn. What? You dont have a flag locker with flags of every nation in the world? Wow, if one is to believe the tripe...
