  • Ted Cruz Sent “Voter Shaming Letter” To Iowa Professor of Political Science…

    (Via New Yorker) […] In Iowa, although voter registration information is free and available to the public, voter history is not. That information is maintained by the secretary of state, which licenses it to campaigns, super PACs, polling firms, and any other entity that might want it. So was the Cruz campaign accurately portraying the voter histories of Iowans? Or did it simply make up the numbers? It seems to have made them up. Dave Peterson, who happens to be a political scientist at Iowa State University and is well-acquainted with the research on “social pressure” turnout techniques, received a...

    The Iowa secretary of State on Saturday rebuked Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s controversial use of a mailer to encourage turnout at the Feb. 1 caucuses. “Today I was shown a piece of literature from the Cruz for President campaign that misrepresents the roll of my office, and worse, misrepresents Iowa election law,” Paul Pate said in a statement released by his office. ...

    "Who you vote for is your secret," the letter, posted by some recipients on Twitter, says. "But whether or not you vote is public record. Many organizations monitor turnout in your neighborhood and are disappointed by the inconsistent voting of many of your neighbors." "We will be reviewing ... official voting records after the upcoming election to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014," the mailer concludes. "If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not." So they aren't the only ones and this isn't new. In Alaska, voters have complained...

    "We're sending this mailing to you, your friends, your neighbors, your colleagues at work and your community members to publicize who does and does not vote." The letter let Adams know that the senders intended to mail an updated chart after the Nov. 4 election. Increasingly, political groups across the country are utilizing publicly available voter lists and other databases to send mailings that use what researchers call "social pressure" to get people to vote. The most forceful threaten to expose an individual's voting record, or lack thereof, to peers. ...was sent by a political action committee called the Opportunity...

    All that's necessary to assure our compliance is shaming us into silence. Our best hope for substantial political change in the past generation was Sarah Palin. When she self-imploded during her Iowa Freedom Summit address last January, what we saw was, not just a personal failure of nerve, but the sure-thing, efficient result, the calculated application of ridicule as one of the key techniques of thought reform. The more one examines this field of study, the more pessimistic one becomes about the prospect for any meaningful resurgence of American democratic republicanism. When Sarah jumped the shark, she was showing understandable...

    President Barack Obama got four mayors to fully endorse his nationwide program to build welcoming communities for millions of new Americans and roll out the red carpet.

Reeds message to the millions of refugees and immigrants entering the country: Come to Atlanta. Reed became the nations fourth mayor to...

  • Tossing Out Food In The Trash? In Seattle, You'll Be Fined For That [first though, red tag shaming]

    NPR ^ | January 25, 2015
    In Seattle, wasting food will now earn you a scarlet letter well, a scarlet tag, to be more accurate. The bright red tag, posted on a garbage bin, tells everyone who sees it that you've violated a new city law that makes it illegal to put food into trash cans. "I'm sure neighbors are going to see these on their other neighbors' cans," says Rodney Watkins, a lead driver for Recology CleanScapes, a waste contractor for the city. He's on the front lines of enforcing these rules. Seattle is the first city in the nation to fine homeowners for...

    Sure, the incentive to compost is the putative reason for this regulation, but exactly how is it enforced? In order for city officials and trash collectors to know you have committed the civic sin of disposing of leftover food in your trashcan, they have to examine the contents of your trashcan. Lets hope the citizens of Seattle and trash collectors can come to some kind of silent truce over this. Do they collectors really want to examine every load they dump into the truck for transgressions? (Lord help us, the city probably offers a bonus of taxpayer money for tagging...

    It has become taboo to shame anybody for violating basic normsincluding sexual deviance, poor manners, or even violent behavior. (Of course, that has not prohibited shaming that is deemed politically correct. Its perfectly fine to make a public display of spurning racists or people who think men and women are, in fact, different. Thats called enlightened humiliation.) In short, progressivism has won the PR war. So why the constant yammering on social justice? My only guess is that leftisms bitter warriors will not halt until all advantages are vanquished from society. Screeds decrying racism, prejudice, sexism, ableism, and all of...

    The Union Leader ^ | October 13, 2013 | Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen
    GRANITE STATERS are rightly frustrated and fed up with the current gridlock in Washington that has resulted in a government shutdown that is hurting families and small businesses. We share that frustration - and we know that our country deserves better from their elected representatives. That's why we're calling on Republicans and Democrats to come to the table now, work out a plan to reopen the government, and develop a long-term deficit reduction plan that will move us beyond this impasse. Too many in Washington are wasting time and energy finger-pointing and playing the blame game instead of working together...

    A seaside town in Australia is in uproar over the punishment a mother has handed out to her young son, making him wear a sign in public saying he's a thief. 'Do not trust me. I will steal from you as I am a thief,' the sign around his neck read as he stood in a park in the Queensland town of Townsville. He remained standing with his head lowered in shame while his family ate lunch nearby. But his humiliation did not end there - he was made to wear Shrek ears and was also seen writing lines, believed...

    "When they cut off my nose and ears, I passed out," 19-year-old Bibi Aisha of Afghanistan says with chilling candor. Her beauty is still stunning and her confidence inspiring. It takes a moment for the barbaric act committed against her to register in your mind and sight. "When you have ... 50 percent of a population on their knees, it's very easy for extremists, tyrants to take over a country," she adds. "They have a ready-made enslaved population."
