Jobs Americans won't do

I'm sure you're familiar with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement sweep last week that netted more than 1,000 illegal immigrants working at Swift & Co. meat-processing plants last week. Well, apparently those jobs weren't among the ones Americans won't do -- people (most of them apparently legal residents) were lined up out the door to […]

Secrets in his socks

Former Clinton administration national security adviser Sandy Berger Burglar pleaded guilty last year to charges that he stole classified documents from the National Archives. He was fined $50,000 and lost his security clearance for three years (just getting them back in time if a Democrat wins the White House in 2008). Wednesday, the inspector general's […]

Funny, but scary

David Zucker of "Airplane!" fame has produced another ad, this time on the Iraq Study Group's "plan" to get Iran to "help" us in Iraq. This time, thankfully, there's no scary looking Madeline Albright clone.

Racial conformity

There's too many black Americans -- predominately Democrats -- who honestly believe that if you don't hew to the liberal/victimhood political line, then you're somehow not a "real" black person. (The "oreo" slur is a perfect example of this.) This belief can have the occasional effect of making liberal blacks sound a lot like white […]

U.S. politicians are amateurs

I've written quite a bit about Randy "Duke" Cunningham, William "$90,000-in-the-freezer" Jefferson and other assorted crooked politicians. However, it's pretty clear that American politicians are amateurs compared to the professionals who call the United Nations their workplace. An article in Tuesday's New York Sun by Claudia Rosett reveals that before taking the top job at […]

Title IX idiocy...to the max!

This is a beaut. From Inside Higher Ed comes news that the National Collegeiate Athletic Association's Committee on Women's Athletics wants the practice of women's teams using male players in practices stopped. Note that these aren't the coaches pushing for this, but bureaucrats. Women’s basketball coaches overwhelmingly support the use of male players, according to […]

Disclaimer: I have had zero/zilch/nada to do with the writing, editing or even the page design of this series. The following comments and observations are my own and should not be construed to offer […]

A mom in @ClarkCountySch reads from a graphic assignment her daughter was required to do. Her mic then gets cut off because it’s inappropriate for a public discussion.

Adults can’t handle hearing this content yet they readily give it to kids in school. How does it make sense?
