Uncle Sam botches what nature would fix

I know we’ve covered a lot of race-based topics lately, but see if you can read this post independent of racial topics: As more and more black renters began moving into this mostly white San Francisco Bay Area suburb a few years ago, neighbors started complaining about loud parties, mean pit bulls, blaring car radios,…

Washington mulls deporting illegals instead of giving them free accomodation

Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire wants illegal immigrants serving time in state jails deported, a move intended to save the state more than $9 million in the next two-year budget. The deportation proposal is modeled after a program in Arizona that has saved the state more than $18.5 million since 2005, said Eldon Vail, Secretary of…

The "objective" media

News flash: There is no such thing as objectivity in American journalism. Instead, in large part as a result of the formulaic practices that are taught in U.S. journalism schools, what most mass-media news organizations pursue is what might be described as merely the presentation of the appearance of objectivity (or “objectivity”) in their reporting…

Miscegenation humor

Africanized bees owe their existence to science. Warwick E. Kerr created them in Brazil during the 1950s by crossing a European bee with an African bee. He wanted a bee that could live in the jungle. He got a bee that swarms by the hundreds of millions, is insanely territorial, mindlessly aggressive, has killed anywhere…

Familial awareness is hardwired in us

Probably for a good reason — or rather, several. Visiting — or even just viewing photos of family members — prompts brain activity that affects how you feel about them, your friends, and even yourself, a new study suggests. “We like to be around people that look more like us, but we do not find…

They’re so simple

Look around you, and your fellow voters. They’re pretty darn simple. For example, they thought Obama would bring hope and change… and now are disappointed. They didn’t realize the president is just the symbol, and the underlying machine that gets him elected and gets bills signed is more important. It’s like expecting a new miller…

The eternal cycle of race discontent

Look at history: multicultural states only occur when a civilization is about to collapse. One race must always be the pitied, and one the pitier, until they switch roles and destroy each other. Israel is learning this now. Once the darling of the left, they went from oppressed to oppressor as soon as a darker…

Pointing out some unpopular truths to victims

If you’re assumed to be a victim, you are supposed to talk about your victimization and make it job #1. If you’re not assumed to be a victim, and you talk in any way about the victimization of another, you’re thought to be motivated by hate because, hey, what do you have to worry about?…

Taking risks gets us high

Science sometimes confirms what we knew all along: A new study by researchers at Vanderbilt University in Nashville and Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City suggests a biological explanation for why certain people tend to live life on the edge — it involves the neurotransmitter dopamine, the brain’s feel-good chemical. Dopamine is…

The final comment on the green trend

Despite the year’s economic meltdown (which itself wasn’t banished but don’t rule it out for next year), the most entries came from the environmental category – for “green” or “going green.” “If I see one more corporation declare itself ‘green,’ I’m going to start burning tires in my backyard,” wrote Ed Hardiman of Bristow, Va.,…
