Bad Design is Still Design

BadDesignby Pete Chadwell  9/30/14

Resentment Knows No Social Bounds

EmmaWatsonby John Moloney   9/30/14
I’m a feminist! Emma Watson’s UN speech has opened my eyes. In the dark ages before I watched the Hollywood starlet’s very affecting attempt to win men over to the cause, I’d assumed that “feminism” was just about hustling for special treatment for women at the expense of men. More » • (32 views)

Poverty in the Black Community is the Result of Culture, Not Racism

Culture2by Patricia L. Dickson   9/30/14
I have often been accused by friends (black, white and all others in between) of being too logical, to the point that I am inhibited from seeing other people’s point of view ( I am not sure if that is a compliment or insult). More » • (53 views)

Equal Work? Government Has No Idea What That is

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   9/30/14
“Equal pay for equal work!” the mantra goes. “Women get only 73 cents on a man’s dollar!” These are oft-heard slogans, and we may well hear them again during the fall campaign with the War on Women afoot. More » • (18 views)

Déjà vu of the Worst Kind

DejaVuby Deana Chadwell    9/29/14
Here we are back in Iraq, jets screaming and buildings exploding, fighting the same war we just “finished.” It’s déjà vu of the worst kind; we have been here before, and this recurrent nightmare begs some troubling questions: More » • (55 views)

Negotiating the Lion’s Den

LionsDenby Glenn Fairman  9/29/14
A few weeks ago, while filling in as a “guest teacher” at a local continuation school, I received that dreaded call that no educator ever wants to receive.  According to the union representative, I had been accused by a middle school student of racial discrimination More » • (79 views)

Redefining Marriage Hurts Women Like Me

HomoFlagby Janna Darnelle   9/29/14
Every time a new state redefines marriage, the news is full of happy stories of gay and lesbian couples and their new families. But behind those big smiles and sunny photographs are other, more painful stories. These are left to secret, dark places. More » • (66 views)

Inequality: The Cudgel of Progressives

Equalityby Jon N. Hall9/27/14
Just about every issue that progressives fulminate about is dressed up in the garish garb of equality. Progressives — so-called “liberals,” a.k.a. “the Left” — invoke equality as though there were no arguments against it, as though no decent, sane person could possibly have a beef with equality.

Winning The Debate

Argumentby Cato   9/27/14
Debates with progressives on economic and political policy often lead nowhere.  In my experience this is because conservatives argue from historical fact and cold, hard data … from experience … while progressives wave off all such references as irrelevant. More » • (50 views)
