The funny thing about the Labor Department’s monthly unemployment report is that the number-crunching bureaucrats act like they’re delivering high-carat diamonds when the real worth of what they’re reporting is closer to the value of a mud pie. Consider: A college graduate with a degree in biomedical engineering who gets a $90,000 job in his field is counted exactly the same in the government’s unemployment report as a biomedical engineering graduate who can’t find a job and is working weekends as a bus boy at Applebee’s.
Consider Joe Biden's behavior at the vice-presidential debate. If his grasp of human nature is so poor that he didn't know obnoxiousness was obnoxiousness and how it would play in Peoria, will he be able to project the right image to Muslim jihadists, the Chinese, and Russians and read their intentions? And, in light of this, is it any wonder that his bird-of-a-feather boss projected weakness by bowing to potentates and pathologically apologizing for America?
Is it remotely possible that the 2012 presidential election will be decided by an eight-foot-tall, bright yellow bird? I know it sounds ridiculous. But the liberal cognoscenti in this country are going absolutely gaga over Mitt Romney’s promise during last week’s presidential debate that he would end government funding of the Public Broadcasting System.
Bill Clinton is certainly full of himself these days. That might have something to do with the fact that no one is likely to ask why he hasn’t owned up to his share of the blame for the housing and financial bust.
Some Ron Paul supporters argue that a vote for either Romney or Obama is unacceptable, for even if one can be said to be not as bad as the other, a vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil — and it is always immoral to vote for evil. I challenge this reasoning in the light of the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas.
There is this idea among many that we can get past apparent differences by concluding they don’t exist. This is reflected in the now common belief that racial distinctions are mere “social constructs.” And this theory isn’t just espoused by liberals, but has become so mainstream that even many conservatives echo it. But just as new research in the 1990s debunked the ‘60s-spawned “gender-neutrality” nonsense of the sameness of the sexes, there has long been research pointing to the reality of race.
President Barack Obama, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have at least one thing in common when it comes to Iran. All are guilty of flagrant self-contradiction.
If you are sick and tired of seeing politicians and others playing the race card, or if you are just disgusted with the grossly dishonest way racial issues in general are portrayed, then you should get a copy of Ann Coulter's new book, Mugged. Its subtitle is: "Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama."
According to a recent study, religion is dying in America. And it’s a trend that has grave implications for our politics, culture, and the fate of our civilization.
President Obama, after his clear loss in his debate with Mitt Romney, called Governor Romney a "phony." Innumerable facts, however, show that it is our Commander in Chief who is Phony in Chief. A classic example was his speech to a predominantly black audience at Hampton University on June 5, 2007. That date is important, as we shall see.
