The Fight Against Political Correctness

The idiotic aspect of the particular example here - "Bless you" - is that the phrase has nothing at all to do with any specific religion or deity, other than to invoke a generic petition for favor. The more common usage is simply a wish for happiness or health. One could be blessed by God, Allah, Gaia, or a sock monkey. Ironically, the Hebrew word for bless is "barak." Go figure.

Five Phrases That Mean You're Not Hired

Maybe if you had taken the time to learn basic spelling, punctuation, and grammar rules, your boss might have appreciated your work more.
A plurality of college faculty members simply don't comprehend other than leftist viewpoints simply because they have never been employed outside of academia or politics. They have an idealized, utopian view of the world, based on little more than intellectual theories of social perfection. Sadly, they are capable of nothing other than indoctrinating new generations with the same nonsensical worldview, as they crank out degree-holders qualified for little more than their own careers in the ivory tower.

Let Congress Vote on Iraq War III

"Finally, why is this our fight, 6,000 miles away, and not theirs?" Simply because history has shown repeatedly that the fight won't stay 6,000 miles away if we adopt the idiotic policy that if we just ignore them, they'll go away. There are a considerable number of possible options other than launching a full-scale war against the Islamists, but neither can we advertise to the world that we're unwilling to deal with potential threats. We shouldn't forget that we avoided nuclear war for nearly 40 years by demonstrating that we were willing to act militarily, even if doing so was the last thing we wanted.
Boy am I relieved! This group looked like a pretty substantial threat. Thank goodness the administration has decreed that won't happen. Dodged a bullet on that one!
And you are apparently oh-so-bewildered about who the author of this column is.
The only reason the "jury is still out" is that there are those who refuse to accept the results of studies and research debunking the claims of the anti-GMO crowd. For these people, no amount of proof will ever be enough.

Straw man argument. I'm not against all government regulation. If I was, I would be an anarchist, not a conservative. As far as not knowing my history and my view of economics, you're entitled to your opinion, but - here's a shock - I don't happen to agree with you.

Yeah, Pat. I give thanks every day for the EPA, which is nothing more than a political weapon for presidents to wield in order to bully industries and state governments into complying with whatever goofy federal energy policies are fashionable at any given moment. Interesting take on Nixon's economic policies, which were nothing more than recycled Keynesian ideas and failed utterly to combat inflation. The wisdom (or folly) of abandoning the gold standard is debated to this day. Reflect on his accomplishments? Sorry, what I remember best is a politician who became isolated and paranoid about losing power - a disease all too common in Washington.
I assume you're talking about the guy in Topeka some time back. One nut case 2 or 3 years ago does not make the case for "conservatives threatening and murdering abortion doctors." C'mon, SF - is that all you've got?
