Free speech update

This week's Supreme Court ruling on student speech started to set some boundaries on what teens can and can't say on campus. For the record: Can't: "Bong Hits 4 Jesus." (According to the Supreme Court today) Can: A seventh-grader from Vermont was suspended for wearing a shirt that bore images of cocaine and a martini […]

How they spend your money

CNN has been putting their summer interns to good use. This week, the interns' assignment was to contact all 100 U.S. Senators and ask for a list of their earmark requests. It should come as no surprise that all those politicians promising a more open government are full of sh hot air. Only six senators […]

Solution still needed

The Senate's second attempt at comprehensive immigration reform died a particularly devastating death Thursday as Senators, seeing that the measure wouldn't reach the 60-vote threshold, abandoned the ship like illegal aliens running out of a Swift meat-packing plant. Something needs to be done about the millions of illegal immigrants in the United States -- but […]

Inconvenient truths

In the name of understanding other religions, a Muslim visited the church of a blogger named Anwyn. Anwyn didn't let all the obfuscations, platitudes and assurances of goodwill toward others go unchallenged. So let me get this straight: Riots of thousands are the natural consequence of offensive newspaper cartoons, but a brutal murder is an […]

The Court ruled, 5-4, that having a goal of a "diverse student body" isn't sufficient reason to discriminate based on race. Of course, that's not how much of the media […]

I couldn't resist

Sorry, but I just had to read about what I missed and this jumped up an bit me. During her 23 days in jail, [Paris Hilton] said she meditated, read letters from fans, talked to other inmates through the vents, wrote in her journal and read the Bible, though she couldn't cite a favorite passage […]

Which ones do we release?

You know about all those harmless, misunderstood, in-the-wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time, "alleged" jihadis that we've got down in Guantanamo Bay? We've released some of the ones that we believed were mistakenly captured. Unfortunately, we've been wrong. As early as 2004, the United States military was discovering that former Gitmo illegal enemy combatants had suckered the smartest intelligence officers […]

Career opportunities

Democrats have been talking about it ever since they retook control of Congress earlier this year: Resurrecting the so-called "Fairness Doctrine." The fairness doctrine is being dug up and propped against the marble columns of the Capitol because Democrats don't like talk radio -- mainly because conservatives are good at it and Democrats can't turn […]

It is now an inevitability that whatever the story, however complex its details, members of the American press will react by announcing who must be forbidden to speak going forward. https://www.nationalreview.com/2022/11/when-journalists-become-speech-police/

Rep.-elect John James (MI) and Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt (TX) are close friends and are first two Black graduates of West Point to enter Congress. They are even from the same class! Both Republicans. No surprise there have been almost zero national media profiles of either or both.
