For Academic Elites Evidence is Irrelevant

I generally agree with you but Adams's case is different, IMO, because he works for a public university. Taxpayers have an interest in ensuring that government employers aren't overpaying some employees by underpaying other employees. In Adams's case, UNCW was apparently allowing tenured professors to live the high life, e.g. by not requiring them to teach much, and making up for it by requiring assistant professor Adams (and others, probably) to teach more. If the state government has policies governing salaries, etc., they must be followed.
The underlying sentiment on the left is that the rich are evil and should be punished. No matter how bad a policy is for all or a majority of Americans, the left will support it if they think it dishes out some of this punishment. It's economic vandalism.
Tell Obama that women are people; not mere life support systems for sex organs.
We know that a lot of rich people are democrats because they feel guilty or because they want to buy influence. (I used to work for a man who was a (D) delegate in 1976, and whose industry subsequently was awarded tax-free status.) I once asked a liberal friend in graduate school why there are wealthy dems. She said "because they want everyone else to be rich too!" Naive!

The Right To Choose... Rape?

Uhm, abortion was illegal before the SCOTUS "discovered" that it is a right. Such a decision could happen to any number of acts currently illegal - prostitution comes to mind.

Well said, Mike. If someone is against rape, then they should, like, not rape anyone. Right libs?
Someone like Malkin needs to revisit the July-August debacle which was the media's unwarranted outrage over Michelle Bachman's and the Intelligence Committee's request that MB ties to State be investigated. Reading the false cries of "McCarthyism!" now, following the 9/11/12 attacks, seems surreal.

How about a more practical form of this? I propose we just reinstate federalism and push as many programs back to the state level as possible. Let the commies in California ruin their own state, but leave mine alone.

Obviously the removal of GOD from the platform relates to the gay marriage and abortion movements. Here is the leftists' false argument: Opposition to gay marriage and abortion are religious opinions; Religious opinions have no place in public discourse; so, opponents of gay marriage and abortion must remain silent. The premise here - that these are religious opinions - is false, and ignores the fact that a lot of atheists or non-religious people hold these views.
The leftists want a monopoly on "helping the poor" so they can be kept on the plantation. Any solution which involves conservative or charitable ideas cannot be discussed because such discussions are "racist".
