What the Non-Fox Media Wrought

Wow! Had I known how far left the State Department was, even back in the late 50's I'd not been surprised when the campus CIA recruiter didn't call me back for a second interview. (I was a "classic liberal" back then--which means I was "conservative.")
No worries, progressives! IAll ya gotta do is read some history other than Howard Zinn, a Marxist, and then present history in a balanced fashion. The mainstream media will present all the Marxist propaganda daily, in bold headlines and on TV.
Ms Pavlich's book, Assault and Flattery, provides much information relevant to her column. It is well worth a read for anyone interested in the safety of women.
Georgetwin, I respectfully disagree. I've known many truly stupid people who know they are stupid. I've also known a very large number of intellectually brilliant people: they are the ones most likely to not know they are stupid. (By stupid, I mean "willfully failing to connect the dots, thereby ignoring what would be obvious to an unbiased person." That is close to the definition of "clinical stupidity" as the term is used in psychiatry.)

Please Stop Helping Us

Sowell, according to a white liberal friend, can be ignored because he just writes what he wants to. The same would apply to Williams; I am grateful that they both want to write ONLY what is true about economics in general and variables affecting economic status of blacks. Riley draws on the research of both Sowell and Williams AND much other work to make his case. The quality of his work is high and merits the consideration that Williams gives it.
This should be no surprise--BHO said in one of his books (I forget which one) words to the effect of "if it comes to a real conflict, I stand with the Muslims" Maybe it was Ayers who penned it but Obama is listed as the author.
Items 1 and 2 on the list would produce all the rest of the list.
I tend to agree: avoid the elite universities, especially in economics; however, I tend to think of George Mason University as elite AND a good place to study economics.

The Turbulent Summer of 2014

You have a point Pleas allow me to add that the cluelessness is aided by the mainstream media, who are themselves clueless. The media cluelessness is self-imposed but aided by the very smart but also clueless liberals in academia.
Thanks! I live in Arizona so I had seen most of this but having it all here enables me to share it with my friends around the country.

Lawsuits and Impeachment

The first football game each fall for a secondary school in a tiny town in Kansas was against a team from a much larger town; we were, in their eyes, a scrimmage to tune up for the season. But we did our best, losing every year, until the year we beat them. After Pearl Harbor, it looked like the USA did not have much of a fighting chance. Impeachment might be a distraction, it might lose, but, therefore, it should we should not do what is right? Not in my book--if the survival of our nation depends on being a bunch of wimps. Just saying.
