  • The 11 Most Politically Correct Moments on College Campuses in 2014

    National Review ^ | 12/24/2014 | By Katherine Timpf
    There are almost too many to choose from, but here are eleven of the most politically correct moments on college campuses in 2014: 1. Princeton University students launched a microaggression-reporting service. In December, Princeton students relaunched “Tiger Microaggressions,” a service that takes other students’ reports of microaggressions and publishes them on its Facebook page. According to the operators, absolutely anything can qualify as a microaggression since “there are no objective definitions to words and phrases.” 2. College students invented a roofie-detecting nail polish — only to be told that that’s actually also rape culture. In August, college students invented...

    1940 – THE YEAR IN REVIEW "The new War Cabinet appears to be a group devoted to 'victory' without regard to its practical possibility." - Basil Liddell Hart (11 May 1940)1 Perhaps it was true that the ascendancy of Winston Churchill to prime minister brought with it an over developed since of optimism, but it certainly stood in stark contrast to what had occurred leading up to that point. In January of 1940 the phony war was still in full battle regalia with the war consisting of words more than deeds. In the east the Soviets continued their war against...

    The Catbird in the Nosebleed Seats ^ | 17 December 2010 | Yours Truly
    In 2004, baseball was conquered by the Idiots. In 2010, >a href="http://catbirdinthenosebleedseats.blogspot.com/2010/10/move-over-idiots-meet-morons.html" target="new">it was conquered by the Morons. The San Francisco Giants, whose own manager proudly proclaimed them a gang of castoffs and misfits, one of whom proudly declared that he was always trying to fit in with "these morons" (Aubrey Huff, rescue from the Geriatric Hotel, and king of the red thong charm brigade: "I'm probably very tame compared to this group"), did something they hadn't done since their street address was Coogan's Bluff and Dwight Eisenhower's was the White House. After they beat the Philadelphia Phillies for the...

    REPUBLICANS WHO HAVE LOST THEIR WAY For the next few days, you will undoubtedly be assaulted with endless compilations of year end lists, reviews, and highlight reels to commemorate the year 2009 and to send it off with a bang. I for one would like to burn the memories of this horrific 365 day saga from my memory for all of perpetuity, but before I begin that endeavor, I thought I would come up with a year end list of my own. For those of you that like that sort of thing, here is another one with a Republican Redefined...

    national review ^ | 12/30/09 | Victor Davis Hanson
    America is at a day of reckoning that it never quite expected to face. Not long ago, tired of eight years of Republican rule, terrified by the September 2008 financial panic, unimpressed by the campaign of John McCain, and mesmerized by the hope-and-change elixirs and landmark candidacy of Barack Obama, the American people voted for change. But change of what sort? I think voters wanted an end to the Bush deficits. Big government and Wall Street insiders sickened them. They were tired of the expense of two wars. By 2006, the scandals of the Republican Congress had turned them off....

    Excerpts: JANUARY...The No. 1 item on the agenda is fixing the economy, so the new administration immediately sets about the daunting task of trying to nominate somebody -- anybody -- to a high-level government post who actually remembered to pay his or her taxes. Among those who forgot this pesky chore is Obama's nominee for Treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, who sheepishly admits that he failed to pay $35,000 in federal self-employment taxes. He says that the error was a result of his using TurboTax, which he also blames for his involvement in an eight-state spree of bank robberies. He is...

    Washington Times ^ | 12/30/09 | By Kara Rowland
    The curtain is coming down on a tough first year for President Obama, whose poll numbers have dropped dramatically in the face of rising unemployment, a slipping legislative agenda and painful decisions on health care, the economy and the war in Afghanistan. His support has faltered on all those key issues - and from both ends of the spectrum. Opponents blame him for expanding the size of government while some in his Democratic base accuse him of not pushing hard enough for his agenda

    Monday featured Obama’s Top Ten Lies list, and Tuesday was the President's Top Ten Broken Promises. Wednesday we featured the Obama Top Ten Flip-Flops. Today, we offer you the President’s top ten scandals of 2009! First some dishonorable mentions that didn't make the top ten: The entire Health "reform" debate itself...nothing more than a socialist takeover, the fact he gave away a $4-Billion government holding (Chrysler) to the UAW...simply gave it away! And to do so, he stole it from the people legally entitled to it, dismissing a voter intimidation case against the Black Panthers despite damning video evidence, firing...

    Academia Nuts Outed by: Malcolm A. Kline, January 05, 2009 With three semesters gone, the list of dubious academic achievements of 2008 is a long one but we will try to whittle it down to: • Lionizing Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, himself a tenured professor on, among other outlets, the website supportbillayers.org; • Demanding a federal bailout by the U. S. Congress, the outgoing Bush Administration, the incoming Obama government or any combination of the above while sitting on billion-dollar endowments; • Insisting on academic freedom for professors while their students fail to answer basic historical questions; • Denying...

    The year in review: From Pelosi to Pitt, perverts to Paris, Dave Barry offers a last laugh BY DAVE BARRY It was a momentous year, a year of events that will echo in the annals of history the way a dropped plate of calamari echoes in an Italian restaurant with a tile floor. Decades from now, our grandchildren will come to us and say, ''Tell us, Grandpa or Grandma as the case may be, what it was like to be alive in the year that Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Britney Spears and Katie whatshername all had babies, although...

    Wilma, Rita, Katrina: No matter how you stack it up, 2005 blew Jan. 01, 2006 It was the Year of the Woman. But not in a good way. Oh, I'm not saying that men did nothing stupid or despicable in 2005. Of course they did! That's why we call them ''men.'' But women are supposed to be better than men. Women are the backbone of civilization: They keep families together, nurture relationships, uphold basic standards of morality and go to the bathroom without making noise. Women traditionally shun the kinds of pointless, brutal, destructive activities that so often involve men,...

    The Year in Review This holiday season is proving to be one of the best in recent memory for merchants and consumers alike. Our economy is on the rebound with the Dow breaking 10,000 points and investor confidence on the rise. The tyrant of Baghdad is in the bag and Libya’s Mohmmar Qadaffi is desperately trying to avoid the same fate. America has made it through 2003, but not without a good number of events worth noting. Let us reflect on them now. On the political front, the 227th year of this republic proved as fascinating and frustrating as ever....
