When honest wage comparisons are done. including not only educational level, but educational discipline, number of years worked in the discipline and when the comparison is done for men and women who have never married, the wage differences totally disappear or even reverse. which would indicate a free-market labor pool. They don't want freedom, they want power and control-thinking that will give them freedom. It will not, it never has. They are literally running away from freedom.

America was "discovered" by Christopher Columbus, an Italian explorer working for the Spanish monarchy in 1492. There is some evidence that they were looking for a westward trade route to China to replace the one around Africa and the land routes through Arabia since 1492 was also the year that the Spaniards forcibly took back Spain from the Muslim Moors. From that year on, Spaniards could not travel freely to the east since they were now "enemies" of the Muslim countries that had to be crossed. You know, raids, kidnapping, slavery........ So yes, Muslims were in on the "founding" of America-THEY ACTUALLY CAUSED IT TO BE FOUND!

The Cancer of Multiculturalism

Apparently, it's OK for the Left to draw moral equivalencies between today's Taliban and the Catholic/Christian Inquisition of several centuries ago. If they are opening up that political can of worms, that means that we should be able to draw a moral equivalence between modern Liberal Progressivism and the Facism that grew up in the early 20th century. Actually, Fascism is more of a methodology for gaining and holding political power. The ideology came later, as a way to falsely justify their power grab. Fascism was (and is) a methodology in search of an ideology. Socialism, originally, was an ideology in search of a methodology. The fusion of Fascism and Socialism, as reflected in BOTH Nazism and Marxist/Leninism which eventually evolved into Stalinism was the great hidden story of the fist half of the 20th century.
There are direct and indirect ways to measure/infer the IQ of any given person. Since our current President was elected, I've not heard of any even relatively objective attempts to measure his IQ and compare it with his predecessors. That tells me that either no one cares about the results or that the results would not fit their political mindset. I wonder which it is? Not..........

Why Rudy Was Wrong!

The President is right that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” Most of the African slaves delivered to America (and elsewhere) from the start were "handled" by Arab Muslim traders whose religion gave them explicit permission to enslave "infidels". It was Christians (starting in Europe-particularly England) who were largely against slavery from the start (although there were those who tried to "bend" Christ to agree with slavery) and worked for decades for its peaceful abolition. I find it particularly ironic that the Black Muslim movement is thoroughly in Islam's camp and against Christianity, the only real hope for Black freedom.

“No religion is responsible for violence and terrorism. People are responsible for violence and terrorism.” That depends upon your definition of the term "Religion" If you limit your definition to the organized thought structures and cultures that exist in Episcopal, Catholic, Baptist, etc. churches, Jewish synagogues and Muslim mosques, then he’s at least partly right. However, it can be argued that ALL organized violence and terrorism events have their basis in some organized self-consistent thought system or other. That’s a more general definition of Religion. Such a definition would include Communism, Revolutionary Socialism, Shintoism, Fascism, Progressivism, Liberalism, etc. Yes, People ARE responsible for violence and terrorism….and often justify that behavior through organized, self-consistent thought systems. Did the people create the thought system or did the thought system create the people? Such systems are the very definition of religions, if you free yourself from the narrow thinking of the past. And here I thought our President was very much in favor of such openness………….
Leaving Christ behind, we have cut our only anchor chain in the only safe harbor in a very stormy sea. We will be blown out into that sea and will not be able to get back to safety on our own. But perhaps He will notice our plight and give us a favorable (albeit very stiff) wind to blow us back in. I hope so....I pray so....even though it will probably get very scary. Blow-Away!!! Damn the Gale! Full Speed Ahead!

I believe Fascism was held in at least somewhat high regard by the Progressive Left, at least early in its lifetime, before all of the death and destruction became undeniable. Calling someone a Fascist in 1922 was not an automatic insult: in fact, it was a complement to some. Perhaps, after the death of many thousands.....or millions... to the depredations of Militant Islamo-fascism, the modern Progressive Left will finally decide that it is really against such nasty behaviors. Just like they turned against the Holocaust-after it was too late to matter. Perhaps.......

The Climate Con Goes On

I admit it! I'm a Climate Change Denier!! I'm also a Socialism Denier, A Communism Denier and a Fascism Denier in the sense that I deny that any of them are workable political systems in any meaningful form. I deny Climate Change not because the climate is not changing-it obviously is all the time-but that I deny or reject the honesty of the Climate Change Believers who are working very hard to implement Socialism, Communism or some variation of Fascism on the world once again. For them, it would be just as useful if worldwide temperatures were dropping-because they would then connect THAT to "Capitalism" (that is, Economic Freedom) and propose their tired shop-warn failed remedies again. They never give up and neither should we.
Michael Brown and Eric Garner were behaving normally when they were killed. That's the point. Their "normal" behavior was substantially outside the normal definition of "normal" that most of us, including policemen have. If I am walking (apparently aggressively) toward a policeman who is aiming his gun at me just after I've punched him in the face, I would expect to be shot-multiple times. that's my "normal" assumptions and it would greatly affect my behavior. Not Michael's. If a policeman comes up to me and announces that I am "under arrest", my first thought would probably be to try to remember the number (and name) of my lawyer. My second thought would not involve anything that even might be misconstrued as resisting his arrest of me. The problem is that we have millions of brother and sister citizens who think it's OK to punch somebody else, even a policeman and that it's OK to resist arrest-that don't even think what Eric Garner did WAS resisting arrest. We don't have a racial problem per se, both men would have had the same fate even if they were not Black, but acted the same way. Just look at all the police-involved shootings. We have a culture problem-lots of culture problems. It ain't color, it's culture.
