Rahm Emanuel Hates the Truth About Guns

Katie, you are expecting too much from Rahm to take the truth into account in governing Chicago. See............flaming Liberals don't like the truth, about guns, about economic matters, about jobs, or about anything else. Liberals live in a fantasy world, not the real one.

Who Needs LA?

Who Needs LA? Answer = no body who owns a modicum of common sense. Lets say our goal happened to be to cause California population to have AT LEAST the common sense of the average American. Here's what you would need to do. * Get a REALLY BIG jackhammer and chip along the San Andreas fault so as to cause San Francisco to drift off toward the South Pole. * Find a Super Big Bulldozer and push all of LA out to sea. * San Diego is a little iffy, but half our Navy is there so we can't get rid of it. In the last election, Obama won the large cities but the outlying areas of California did NOT vote for the sucker. I suspect The Big Zero won the cities because that's where you find people who have LOTS of money, Industry (therefore unions), folks who are on welfare. So all these groups have a vested interest in growing government and electing idiots (Nancy Pelosi, Barbara, Boxer, Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown for example.)

A Lesson on Racial Discrimination

A fine article as always Dr. Williams. Thanks. I don't know if the NBA overall has a ratio of 85% black players, but it's probably close to that number. Why is that the case? Well, overall the best BB players are black guys.............PERIOD. I like to argue that every segment of our society ought to operate like the NBA in this sense. If you're a good enough BB player, you'll get your shot REGARDLESS of any other of your characteristics. Talent wins out because the system is based on merit. Imagine how it would be if the NBA had racial quota system rather than a merit system. It would be rediculous
Well, let's see. Ole Larry is an assistant professor or philosophy, which likely means he's young. He would be sort of like teenagers. Teens are as smart as they will every be (their central nervous system is fully developed) but the things is they don't know much yet about how the real world works so they frequently exhibit poor judgement. Our man Larry doesn't know much about how the real world works either.

Black People Duped

in the words of a sociology professor in the 1960s, "it has yet to be shown that the absence of a father was directly responsible for any of the supposed deficiencies of broken homes." The person making the above statement is dumber than a fence post, professor or not. First of all, the best way to avoid poverty for children is for parents to stay married and work together for the benefit of the family. And it isn't just a money issue. How does a boy child learn to become a man? A large part of the process is unconscious and relates to identifying with and modeling after a father. 80% of the men in prison were raised by single moms. That's not a knock on women but rather a knock on the AHs (read "Air Heads") who father the children and then abandon their responsibilities. That sort of abandonment by men may be at a higher ratio among blacks but it's a real problem with any segment of the population. Destroying the family is a terrible idea, and it's been happening more and more over the last fifty years.
Spike Lee is a racist. No news there. He's a talented racist, but a racist none the less.
In my view, income inequity is not something we ought to be terribly concerned about. Rather the issue seems to be inequity of opportunity. If people have equal opportunity to find work, develop their skills then they will "advance" to the level of their ambition and native ability. Some will use the opportunities presented and some won't. If Congress managed to distribute the wealth of the nation absolutely equally for each person, within a few years income would again be unequal because of the paragraph above.

Catholic Capitalist Replies to the Pope

The Pope ought to get his concepts squared away before making sweeping economic statements. I could be wrong (I was one time) but as far as I know "Trickle Down Theory" is NOT a legit economic theory espoused by any school of Economics. The so called trickle down theory is more of a media derived concept and/or a politically handy idea used to denigrate free market economics.

I feel sorry for American Entertainment people including Hollywood typed. . . not because they're put upon by everyone but because they're clueless. And they're clueless because among other things. * They rarely cross paths or communicate with non-entertainment people and so do not understand the real world. * For the most part they 're happy enough to NOT have to deal with the real world and seem to prefer fantasy. * All of which makes them ideal Liberals.
Well..........yeah, Ann. Another example of our Duly Elected Inside the Beltway twits making decisions they think will help them get elected rather than what's good for America. Sort of the "same old.....same old." Makes a good argument for term limits.
