I happen to believe that it is conservatives of color who will lead us out of our liberal bondage. I am in the most conservative state in the union and my state representative is a conservative Republican African-American (the district is maybe 2% black tops) - and I am supporting a very attractive black candidate to take an adjacent district back from a woman Democrat. In Talk Radio the overall population of successful talkers is very limited so the small number of black hosts is still a significant percentage. Just a few who I listen to pretty regularly are Herman Cain, David Webb, and Deneen Borelli.

Kangaroo Courts on Campus?

An old friend now long deceased was a professor of romance languages in a prestigious southern university. He had a very engaging naivete about himself and delighted in relating about his continuing amazement with the fact that most semesters there would be an attractive coed who would take a front row seat with the express purpose of using the Sharon Stone* method to secure an "A" *Basic Instinct -
But when - last I heard they were saying it would take years to provide the emails subpoenaed by House Oversight.
The way to increase the "minimum" wage is to create and environment for job growth. The most powerful current example is the fact that Walmart is offering an entry/training wage in Fargo ND of $16.00 per hour. My question is how many job applicants in other places around the country will be condemned to $7.25 per hour offers because of the refusal of this administration to go forward on the Keystone XL pipeline?
The cancellations were somewhere between five and seven million - you're entitled to your own opinion not your own facts.
Missing from the data is the percentage of each of the political leanings previously insured. Rather than making the questionable assertion that Republicans were less likely to sign up because of opposition to the program it may well be that Republicans were much more responsible in the past and there were fewer uninsured who needed to sign up.

Enforcing Islamic Law at Brandeis

Is there anyone more suicidal than a liberal progressive Jew? Brandeis University was founded as a secular Jewish sponsored school. It was founded in the late 40s at the time of Israel's declaration of statehood. One of the principles of that statehood was, "never again." Kowtowing to CAIR and the other Muslim Brotherhood pressure groups is tatamount to welcoming a latter day holocaust. If there is anyplace the evil of Islamic Jihadism and Sharia practice should be shouted from the bell tower it is at a respected Jewish founded institution.
Interesting use of Walter Lippmann - he screwed up with a column in the 1932-33 interregnum - (in those days inauguration was March 4th) when he made the serious recommendation that FDR should take dictatorial powers for a short? time. That was the clearest statement of how progressives truly expect to govern. FDR did not formally take autocratic executive power - he just exercised it in fact - kind of like BHO is doing now.

Behind the Russian Rage

Understanding his geopolitical and historical motivation for his action is not the same as condoning it. We were extremely unfortunate that George H W Bush ran such a lousy campaign in 1992 because the three presidents who have followed (including his son) have done a terrible job of understanding what it would take to integrate a new Russia into a liberal world order. And of the three Obama is far and away the most ignorant and naïve. I don't see anything good happening any time soon. Though I do think that a really creative administration could bring the Russians to a much more cooperative and responsible posture. There are so many issues which are existential to both countries that a two way accommodation is a Win-Win possibility.
Remember also that Hobby Lobby through their insurance DOES pay for contraception - there are only 4 of 20 of the approved methods of birth control that the object to being compelled to pay - those four the government admits the mechanism of contraception is abortion of a fertilized embryo.
