  • Is Harvard Unfair to Asian-Americans?

    11/25/2014 4:40:42 AM PST · by Theoria · 11 replies
    The New York Times ^ | 24 Nov 2014 | YASCHA MOUNK
    Nearly a century ago, Harvard had a big problem: Too many Jews. By 1922, Jews accounted for 21.5 percent of freshmen, up from 7 percent in 1900 and vastly more than at Yale or Princeton. In the Ivy League, only Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania had a greater proportion of Jews. Harvard’s president, A. Lawrence Lowell, warned that the “Jewish invasion” would “ruin the college.” He wanted a cap: 15 percent. When faculty members balked, he stacked the admissions process to achieve the same result. Bolstered by the nativism of the time, which led to sharp immigration restrictions, Harvard’s...
  • Obama Presidency Headed for Historic Achievement [hilarious]

    Danbury (CT) News Times ^ | 10/19/14 | Stephan Lesher
    Despite the president's low approval ratings, and the continuing cacophony of hate directed toward him by Republicans and racists, any reasonable assessment of Barack Obama's accomplishments to date would conclude that his presidency could well go down as a time of historic achievement. The Affordable Care Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulation Bill -- the largest since the New Deal -- and his economic policies bolstered by yeoman's work of the Federal Reserve, place Obama solidly in the company of presidents like FDR and LBJ. Despite widespread Republican disinformation about and unrelenting opposition to the Affordable Care...

    Hopefully, America has learned its lesson — do not elect another “community organizer.” This is especially true when the community organizer has a murky history filled with pathological lies, a hatred of America and a long list of associations with those who wish to destroy our nation. You would think a community organizer would know that showing weakness is a provocation for your enemies. Maybe President Barack Obama does know this and doesn’t care. Or maybe he does not have a clue what is going on in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia and everywhere else where America’s enemies...

    Summit Daily ^ | April 09, 2014 23:20 GMT | Rick Jensen
    President Obama took a victory lap on Tuesday, celebrating 7 million Obamacare enrollees. Let’s take a look at this success. President Obama and the Democrats pushed through their signature domestic policy stating the “Affordable” Care Act would cover “every American.” They have used the figure of “48 million uninsured Americans.” To date, Obamacare has then enrolled less than 2 percent of those uninsured Americans. “It’s working!” exclaimed the president. The Rand Corporation crunched the numbers and discovered only 858,000 people of the 7 million enrollees have actually paid their premiums, which is required to actually be covered.

That said, you can pour a case of Shalini perfume (one of my favorites for women) on a dead, maggot-infested carcass; but when you are done you are still left with a dead, maggot-infested carcass. Only difference is it has a small fortune of expensive perfume poured on it. Crystal Lewis, a WeNews correspondent, said: “Once black girls wind up in...

At 13, Novak vowed to devote his life to resurrecting extinct animals. At 14, he saw a photograph of a passenger pigeon in an Audubon Society book and “fell in love.” But he didn’t know that the Science Museum of Minnesota, which he was then visiting with a...

    The Week ^ | December 18, 2013 | John Terbush
    For progressives, the post-election honeymoon is over One year removed from re-election, President Obama's approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama's popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama's job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That's down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep...

    Following on the heels of other political groups, President Obama's liberal base is abandoning him, giving him an even lower level of support from his base than George W. Bush had from conservatives five years into his presidency, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. Just 54 percent of liberal Democrats strongly approve of Obama in their new poll. For Bush at this stage of his presidency, 65 percent of conservatives strongly supported the Republican. Worse for Obama: Younger liberals have lost their thrill for Obama more than older liberals. Of those aged 18-49, just 46 percent strongly approve...

    America’s Founding Fathers fought a war to put an end to England’s taxation of the American colonies without allowing the colonists representation in the English Parliament. Today, Americans gleefully tax others without representation. In a practically secret election on Aug. 6, Butler Township residents created two new Joint Economic Development Districts (JEDDs) to tax non-residents. Why raise taxes on yourself when you can vote to raise them on people who can’t vote to stop you?The Dayton Daily News reported, “The business district passed 1,158 to 616 with a total vote of 1,774 and the hotel district passed 1,159 to 611...

    “I’m less concerned about style points.

This president is so obsessed with style over substance that “style” has been considered his only strong suit. This is why his “likability” has been so high with people – he’s a nice guy. That is how he has gotten to where he is today without accomplishing anything of substance.

    MANY American newspapers were doomed to decline from the moment the Internet arrived on personal computers. But The Washington Post, just sold off unexpectedly to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, was never really one of them. This is something the sentimental send-offs for the Graham family and its stewardship tended to ignore. As disruptive as the Internet has been for journalism, The Post was uniquely positioned to succeed amid the chaos. And it has struggled, in part, because the paper’s leaders failed to step into an online-era role that should have been theirs for the taking. The nature of that role is...

Good cat food and a warm place to sleep and you are golden. 2. Cats do not understand the concept of breakfast in bed. Start opening the can or the bag of food and they are on the way. 3. Cats dislike chocolate, sneeze on flowers, and attempting to buy them nice clothes to wear will only make them strut away in disdain. They...

    IMAGINE if African-American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year. Articles and interviews would flood the media, and we'd have political debates demanding that African-Americans be "held accountable." But when the criminals and leaders are white men, race and gender become the elephant in the room. Nearly all the mass shootings in this country in recent years have been committed by white men and boys. Unlike other groups, white men are not used to being singled out. So we expect that many of them will protest that it is unfair if we talk about...

    How big can a company get with just 50 employees? We're about to find out.Thousands of small businesses across the U.S. are desperately looking for a way to escape their own fiscal cliff. That's because ObamaCare is forcing them to cover their employees' health care or pay a fine—either of which will cut into profits and stymie future investment and growth. We've already seen many of America's biggest companies respond to the new law by laying off employees, putting them on part-time, or raising prices. But those are short-term solutions. Ultimately, these corporations will have to innovate and restructure to...

As he writes in the New York Times on Monday, it is the Constitution itself which has allowed for the series of legislative follies that finally resulted in the “fiscal cliff.” Seidman says that it is time for Americans to realize what lawmakers have known since the constitution’s inception – it is okay to ignore it. “As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government...
