Common Core is so Bad even Democrats are Starting to Reject It

Behind the Scenes in Mordor

I do not know who Fredrik deBoer is, but this piece is fascinating. He expands upon Jon Chait’s lament over political correctness. I do have to say the funniest piece in response to Chait was some idiot at Vox who denied political correctness even exists. The whole thing is a snapshot into Mordor. Take this for example: I have seen, with my own two eyes, | Read More »

Corruption Kills – The Devil At Duke University

When I criticize the Post-modern American University as an institution, I often find myself drawn to write up some detestable maleficence taking place on the campus of Duke University.

And there are bad guys and | Read More »

Think that the Democrats will retake the House in ’16? Fine. Name the seats.

While you are going to hear a good deal about how the Democrats plan to message, and take advantage of their gerrymandered states, and framing, and almost everything else – one thing that’s going to be not talked about much will be which seats are going to flip.

White House: Taliban are not terrorists

I suppose that if Daniel Patrick Moynihan was right and we can define deviancy down, there is really no good reason why terrorism can’t be defined down, too. Via ABC’s Jon Karl: They act like terrorists, they regularly kill civilians like terrorists, but the White House does not consider the Afghan Taliban to be a terrorist group. “They do carry out tactics that are akin | Read More »
