The next step is to demand that those being hired have degrees from certain universities only (the elite ones, of course).

Muslims Need to Confront Muslim Evil

It should be leftists who should be denouncing Islamic terrorism. It's generally too dangerous for moderate Muslims (even those in the West), who receive death threats from the extremists. Where are the demonstrations by leftists in favor of free speech?
What's missing from the article is the support that these same pro-choice people give to Muslims, many of whom are against abortion.
Excuse me, but the ad on the right is impinging on the content on page two of this column. I'm in Firefox, but when I tried it in Chrome, it was the same thing.

Whenever leftists complain about "excess" profits in the oil industry, I complain about the excess money in Harvard's endowment fund. That shuts them up.

Resisting the Tide of Secularism

The same secularists who attack Christianity empower Muslims, so secularism is unlikely to be around thirty years from now. I'm a secularist myself, and I've begged all the other secularists to stop empowering Muslims, and they just won't.

Originally, America had tariffs but no income taxes. If we went back to that system, then prices on imports would be raised, but people would have more money because they wouldn't be paying any income taxes. I don't know that it would balance out, but it has to be considered.
Don't forget that teaching assistants' strike at Yale in 1995. Their own leftist professors thwarted them, according to Cary Nelson in Manifesto of a Tenured Radical, p. 143.

The Attack of the Global Warming Islamist

In spite of what the true believers in global warming say, this isn't about science. It's about trust. They trust the climate "scientists," and we skeptics don't. They seem to me to be activists first and scientists second, as was shown by the ClimateGate emails. Now the Economist magazine has admitted that there hasn't been any warming in fifteen years, showing that their predictions aren't very good. Why exactly am I supposed to believe in this nonsense?
Be specific about the circumstances.
As I pointed out above, the key is job creation and not worrying about how much people at the top are making. When there's enough job creation, you don't need to mandate a minimum wage because wages will rise automatically. Plus, you don't have the bad effects of a mandated minimum wage, which is the refusal by employers to hire people whose work isn't worth the minimum wage.
