    Young America's Foundation ^ | October 31, 2012 | Stephen Smoot
    This paraphrases the basic theme of the latest in a series of studies by Clemson University’s Darren Linvill and Joseph Mazer. In short, left wing bias does not come from academic leftists, but from students too unskilled to take on faculty in debate. According to an article scheduled to be published in Communication Education next January, Linvill and Mazer argue that if students came to college with better argumentation skills, they would be less likely to see professors as biased. Also it claims that students who enjoy arguments will defend their beliefs in class more often and be less likely...

    After making this video I got home from work, turned on my TV and learned that they were not content to limit their abuse to school children. Serial rapists and killers like Ted Bundy, testify how it takes more and more to satiate their lusts. That is the only way I can explain to myself how the left sends Michael Moore to the convalescent home to abuse, violate and disgrace the elderly. Following are some troubling observations & "Jonesian" similarities to the most notorious cultists and the Obama campaign... (video linked above)

For some reason, Nicole felt it necessary to stress to me that the web site on which she solicited her cosmetic surgery,,...
  • Court returns $66,000 in stolen cash to bank robber

    An Austrian court ordered $66,000 to be returned to a bank robber who held up a bank 19 years ago. Back in in 1993, after getting into financial difficulties, bank manager Otto Neuman stole $195,000 in cash, gold bars and gold coins from the bank where he was working. Neuman recruited two accomplices to stage a fake robbery at the Erste Bank, in Vienna's Doebling district. By the time the police caught up with them they only found $66,000 in cash and gold. The rest of the money was gone. The gold was given to the insurance company who had...

    RAFAH, Egypt — Electric batons could not stop hordes of Palestinians from illegally pouring through a hole in the border fence between Gaza and Egypt. Nor could water canons, and bulldozers. Palestinians have repeatedly crossed into Egypt for supplies since last Wednesday. As soon as Egyptian forces have sealed up one hole, Hamas forces have succeeded in blasting a new one somewhere else in the 18-foot fence that divides this backwater border town in two. Nothing Egyptian officials did seemed to work until they began blasting Yoko Ono music from the same speakers normally used to call Muslims to prayer....

    The US military and State Department aren't the only branches of the US government to "go gay." The FBI and CIA, the two main federal law enforcement and surveillance organizations, have fully embraced the homosexual and transgender movements, and appear to be poised to crack down on pro-family groups and citizens who are critical. For example, the FBI is actively recruiting homosexual and "transgender" employees and agents. The FBI's "careers" website now boasts a page advising potential (and current) job applicants. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has actually been involved with the homosexual movement for over 15 years, according to...

For example, the Toronto District School Board’s website encourages children to have sex with vegetables: An adult who repeated this filth to a child on school grounds would be arrested, even at this point in our cultural decline. But linking to it on a website gets around that for now, while enlightened liberal educators wait for repressive laws and backward bitter clingers to catch up.

    This is why we can’t have nice things. We can’t have the types of debates about policies and legislation that could lead to reconciliation because right wing crazies inevitably exaggerate the conversation. To them, President Obama’s reelection doesn’t have anything to do with a sensible debate on the issues, but everything to do with demons and wacked out interpretations of the Bible. So it’s certainly no surprise that bad actor Chuck Norris, who has been a member of the tin foil contingency for years now, “went there” in a video slamming President Obama.

    Photos of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar’s abandoned private island At the height of his power, Pablo Escobar was worth an estimated $3 billion (USD) and his Medellín Cartel controlled 80% of the global cocaine market. So he may have had a few extra dollars to throw around on a private island. In fact, many drug lords had luxurious villas on small islands off the coast of Cartagena, islands that have since been abandoned by their human occupants. Urban explorer and photographer Stefaan Beernaert, also known as Fotantje, has explored the islands off Catagena and photographed the so-called "Drug Islands."...

    The relentless campaign to promote and normalize homosexuality -- and now cross-dressing and transgenderism -- for children is gaining speed in the media. These are things that are really happening. They are at the same time frightening and heartbreaking to watch and read about. On Sunday, Sept. 2, the Boston Globe featured a front-page article about a "groundbreaking" summer camp in Connecticut for "transgender" and cross-dressing children. According to the article, several of these children are being given drugs to delay their puberty so that they can have "successful" sex-change surgery. Some girls have already had their breasts surgically removed,...

    It was the yearly street fair. The big one. Sunny Sunday afternoon, booths selling tchotchkies, Mexican and oriental food (try calling it politically correctly ‘Asian-American’ when the sellers themselves called it ‘Oriental’), insurance companies, banks, chiropractors offering free spinal exams, political candidates and political causes, save the planet, save the greyhounds, church booths - I didn’t see the community church which bear hugged me last year and which I promised myself to visit and never did, but they were there according to the map, absent were the Scientologists this year and the usual masked protesters against them, masked because they...

    What I Saw At The Coup Short-fuse fiction by Matt Bracken intended to spread alarm among progressives, in the spirit of dispiriting them from ever attempting such a mad folly in order to cling to power. Matt Bracken is the author of the Enemies Foreign And Domestic trilogy, and Castigo Cay. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ This is the first time in many years that I have put pen to paper for a lengthy letter, so please forgive my misspellings, poor handwriting or any other errors. I will probably do this in one go and be finished with it. I won't need much of...

    No, it's not an early Halloween prank. The Associated Press is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a new "public health campaign" and has "urged citizens to prepare for a zombie apocalypse." The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have gotten into the act as well and have launched a series of seminars and social media campaigns on zombie attack survival. A CDC pamphlet, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse" gives a history of zombies and checklists of all the survival items that citizens should have in stock in case of a...

    ....Some day, twenty years or so form now, you’re going to just accept as similar fact that actor Kal Penn and President Obama had a romantic relationship that began on the 2008 campaign trail and continued when Obama asked Penn to move to Washington so they could be close to one another and the two could have sex more frequently. Future biographies of President Obama must contain entire chapters devoted to how Penn’s presence in the White House affected and strained Obama’s relationship with longtime “body man” Reggie Love, who friends and acquaintances since his days playing basketball at Duke...

    My Toshiba Satellite L305 has crapped out. It did not come with the reinstallation disk. I can get a new hard drive but I need an O/S. It is too old to run Windows 7, which I can't really afford. Does anyone know where I can buy a Windows Vista Home Premium (or sumtin') disk or product key for a good price?
