  • The ‘Yale snowflakes’: who made these monsters?

    11/13/2015 6:47:33 AM PST · by rktman · 44 replies ^ | 11/9/2015 | Brendan O’Neill
    Video footage of Yale students losing the plot over a faculty head and his wife, who said everyone should calm down about Halloween, has caused much head-shaking in liberal circles. And it isn’t hard to see why. The head’s crime was that his wife sent an email suggesting academics and students should chill out about ‘culturally insensitive’ Halloween costumes. It’s okay, the email said, to be a ‘little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive’ on this one day. For his wife issuing this mildest of rebukes to over-sensitive over-18s, the head was accosted by a mob of students insisting...

  • Chevrolet Volt 'Comes Out' For Detroit's LGBT Pride Weekend

    06/05/2012 1:07:55 PM PDT · by smokingfrog · 51 replies ^ | 5 June 2012 | Richard Read
    On June 28, 1969, gays, lesbians, and their transgendered friends took to the streets of New York, protesting the harassment they'd experienced at the hands of the city's police force. The violence -- now known as the Stonewall Riots -- lasted for several days and altered the way that Americans viewed their LGBT neighbors. Forty-three years down the road, things have changed dramatically. We have an array of LGBT characters on TV and in movies. We have a president who's come out in favor of marriage equality. And with only a couple of exceptions, most of America's major corporations --...

  • Low Volt-age

    Let us compare the Volkswagen and the "Voltswagen." The original Volkswagen was intended as the "people's car" (that's what Volkswagen means). The idea of a cheap, safe, reliable car for the working man was popular before Adolf Hitler embraced it, but as a self-proclaimed man of the people, he made the idea his own. Whereas industrialists and aristocrats didn't think the common man needed a car ("the people's car is a bus" was their refrain), Hitler sided with one of his heroes, Henry Ford, arguing that everyone deserved his own ride. He ordered the German Labor Front, the union arm...

    GENERAL MOTORS introduced America to the Chevrolet Volt at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show as a low-slung concept car that would someday be the future of motorized transportation. It would go 40 miles on battery power alone, promised G.M., after which it would create its own electricity with a gas engine. Three and a half years and one government-assisted bankruptcy later G.M. is bringing a Volt to market that makes good on those two promises. The problem is, well, everything else. For starters, G.M.s vision turned into a car that costs $41,000 before relevant tax breaks ... but...

    One of the most outrageous and dishonest campaign websites this year was Obama's mock "Pro-Life" website paid for by George Soros.In reality Obama was the most radical pro-abortion and infanticide candidate in the last 35 years.

After his victory his advisors announced that one of his first moves would be to lift a ban that would swell the number abortions both here and abroad.They weren't kidding. Today it was announced that Obama will fund foreign abortions.FOX News reported: President Obama will issue an executive order on Thursday reversing the Bush...
