“They earned the nickname ‘Mexican Hunters,’ a special unit of screeners at Newark's Liberty-International Airport, who singled out Mexicans, Dominicans and other Hispanic passengers for extra scrutiny.”
Of course, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would never discriminate: only entrepreneurs and the free market are that wicked. And so the TSA lied yet again, insisting that it “’does not profile passengers on the basis of race, ethnicity or religion’" though its thugs did exactly that for almost two years: “According to the federal investigation, the racial profiling was widespread at Newark's Terminal B from early 2008 to late 2009.” Curiously, the agency “retrained” the very employees it swore did nothing wrong.
Most of our nation's problems are a direct result of our being immune, hostile or indifferent to several moral questions. Let's start out with the simple and move to the more complex. Or, stated another way, let's begin with questions that generate the least hostility, moving to those that generate the greatest.
I’m sure that homeschoolers will agree that defending and expanding educational freedom is in the interest of homeschoolers. The public education establishment, which has enormous political power through the National Education Association, would love to get rid of home education, and that is why they keep trying to get state legislatures to impose all sorts of onerous regulations on homeschoolers.
The Republicans' confused assortment of announced presidential candidates — as well as unannounced candidates and distant possibilities of candidates — seems to be clarifying somewhat. The withdrawal of Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee, as well as the withdrawal of much of Newt Gingrich's staff, seems like a much-needed weeding-out process.
When Nevada Senate contender Sharron Angle led incumbent Harry Reid by three points in polls but lost by six on Election Day 2010, it raised some eyebrows. Yet that is nothing compared to the Russian region of Tambov, where Vladimir Putin’s party, United Russia (UR), polled at 35 percent in April but then cruised to victory with a whopping 65 percent of the vote a month later. Now that’s a get-out-the-dead-vote effort even a Chicago ACORN chapter couldn’t have matched.
In the annals of American politics, I don’t believe that any congressman, governor, or president has been the subject of such relentless liberal or media hatred or criticism as Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska. It is a phenomenon that defies simple understanding or explanation. It can only mean that the left is so frightened of a Palin candidacy for president, that they will do and say anything that will turn the American people against her.
To understand why our public education system is in its present wretched academic state, one must realize that the system is no longer run as an intellectual institution. Ever since the public school system was taken over by the behavioral psychologists at the turn of the last century, the goal has shifted from the development of intellectual and academic skills to that of changing and manipulating human behavior.
Judy Moody and the Not So Bummer Summer proves to be a pleasant enough family movie about the joys of childhood. The film follows Judy Moody on her adventures as she is determined to make this her best summer yet, and will have moviegoers laughing as they reminisce about their own childhood summer escapades. However, much of the thrills and humor in Judy Moody and the Not So Bummer Summer is oriented for younger audiences, with a limited amount of appealing humor for adults.
