Thanks Victor for reminding me of the modern examples where this multi-culture concept has failed with lots of blood. All of the examples are different but a couple of thing that are common - political leaders using the racial/religious divide for their own advantage. - the countries were economic basket cases - when you have little hope for the future then you start to blame the other guy - once the spark set off the fire in these countries it didn't take long for them to go to chaos then to massive loss of life. Bad news is that we have many of the same things going on here!

I'm reminder of Golda Mier statement - there will be peace in the middle east with the muslims love their children more than they hate jews (or something close to this). As it relates to the black / white divide we are currently experiencing in this country. Blacks will succeed, and be accepted when they leave the security of being a victim. At some point blacks have to stand up and denounce their own thugs and low rent culture. Money won't solve this, nor will telling whites to accept their culture solve this - the only solution is black leadership and it is sorely missing now!

as pistol wrote -- you speak for me also
great article -- It is so frustrating that the 'de jour' crisis is whatever the MSM says it is and not based on any logic or facts. I guess this has been true for a long time but it is frustrating!
This must be a joke -- What the Obama does has nothing to do with the constitution. Do these lawyers really think the O cares what is in the constitution. Clearly the majority of American don't because we let him get away with it.........

Remember those times well. This was the hippie era with all the crazy things that any rational immature 18 year would think and desire. Free Love, Get High, 'Peace', Do your own thing, find your inter self, end the draft, vote at 18, etc. Most of the hippies grew up - those that didn't now are politicians or work for the federal government.
I'm afraid that it will take another 9/11 event in America to wake people up. Radical Islam is taught from a very young age - they will never be converted. The sad part is that progressive PC thinking in this country is also taught from a very young age and they also will not be converted.

The problem with applying stereotypes to various parts of the Rep Party is that they are stereotypes and have many exceptions. The D's are all over the map and their principals changes with the wind. The R's have, in general, been the anti D's. But with the D's changing position so often it is difficult to keep a constant position for the R's. It would be better if the R's just rallied around a few constant points, smaller gov't, reorder entitlements, strong defense, balance budget.

It will be interesting how history will treat the AGW hoax in the future. The fact that so many buy into this hoax doesn't say much for the future of the country. My take is that we are living in America at a time that has never been better and easier. Very few are hungry, lots of time available where we don't have to work, constant entertainment, etc. This should be the best of time and instead you have lots of people that are believing in unicorns, crazy theories, free lunch, etc. The only good news is that we won't be around to see how history will call this one goofy time.
I find it interesting that many of the political correct have lots of little letters behind their names. Whether a JD, PhD, MS, etc it appears that the schools breed political correct thinking for a lifetime. It seems that there is an inverse relationship between the years in college and the ability to think rationally.
