February 3rd, 2021 1:44 PM
Second only to his fixation on "climate change" is President Biden's focus on "systemic racism." In addition to reinstating mandatory race theory training for federal employees, Biden proposes spending even more money we don't have to fix a problem beyond the government's reach. As with original sin, curing racism is best solved internally. It is a matter of the heart.

Reasoning About Race
September 19th, 2018 2:17 PM
So much of our reasoning about race is both emotional and faulty. In ordinary, as well as professional, conversation, we use terms such as discrimination, prejudice, racial preferences and racism interchangeably, as if they referred to the same behavior. We can avoid many pitfalls of misguided thinking about race by establishing operational definitions so as to not confuse one behavior with…

November 12th, 2015 6:01 PM
It’s often noted that Republicans have lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections, just as Democrats had lost five of six before that. Dems snapped out of it thanks to a Bill Clinton-led tack towards the center, but Michael Tomasky predicts that the GOP will stay to the right in 2016, thereby extending its slump.
After Michael Dukakis’s defeat in 1988,…

December 31st, 2014 5:10 PM
Call the Ripley's Believe It or Not people. Have smelling salts available. What follows will surely be one of the more unusual things you've seen or heard this year.
In the midst of his otherwise odious Silicon Valley race-hustling shakedown effort, Jesse Jackson said something that made sense — so much sense that the rest of the press, which usually hangs on every word of his…

There is a jobs crisis in the U.S. that is going virtually unnoticed by the broadcast networks. The unemployment rate for African Americans towers over the national average, upsetting conservatives and liberals.

Jesse Jackson: Tea Party-Led GOP is 'Resurrection of the Confederacy
October 9th, 2013 5:10 PM
The Vietnam War is beloved by liberals, Ann Coulter once observed, because it's the only war America lost.
Looks like the Civil War could become the left's new fave, if it hasn't already. Not only have left wingers deluded themselves that Barack Obama is the second coming of the Great Emancipator (Steven Spielberg's unstated motive for filming "Lincoln"), they now…
