In California, Gov Jerry Brown and his Democrat cronies are trying to jam through a high-speed rail project from San Francisco to Los Angeles that has been a gold-plated turkey from day one.
When first proposed to the voters in the form of an initiative in 2008, the price tag was pitched at a ludicrous $34 [...]
Everybody like their own tribe the best, because that preference is hard-wired in the human psyche for reasons of safety. Despite liberals’ persistent efforts to convince us that even the diversity of illegal immigration should be celebrated, home towners all over the world remain unconvinced, as indicated by a Pew survey showing that increased immigration was [...]
It’s been disappointing to see the issue of sex-selection abortion debated with such dishonesty, where the cultural background of the practitioners has been omitted, presumably because of political correctness. In doing so, the discussion maligns American women, who do not as a matter of culture engage in sex-selection abortion.
Aborting female fetuses is an accepted custom [...]
Swiss citizens have at times shown less interest than many Europeans in PC celebrations of diversity, as demonstrated by their voting against minaret construction (pictured below) and for deporting criminal aliens.
The latest is a neighborhood watch strategy moved to the next level by active observation of foreign criminals particularly asylum seekers, who are responsible for [...]
President Obama handed out Medals of Freedom on Tuesday, and they well reflected his political beliefs. Rock legend Bob Dylan got a lot of attention, and he was a famous social rebel in the sixties.
One recipient of interest is Delores Huerta, who was an early activist for farm workers with Cesar Chavez. In recent years she [...]
Newbie Mexicans have a habit of enforcing the primacy of their home culture among hispanics who reside in this country. In the dear homeland, for example, Spanish speakers look down on indigenous Mexicans who speak Triqui, Nahuatl and other tribal languages, and they bring that ethnic discrimination with them when they hop the border to [...]
We residents of the Bay Area love our unique landmark. The bridge never fails to inspire with its beautiful form and how it frames natural vistas of land meeting ocean.
The Chronicle has posted its photo archive of bridge pictures here.
One little-known fact about the bridge is how it was financed. The project was planned during [...]
America’s young college graduates are having a hard time finding jobs in the long-lasting recession. Many are saddled with a mountain of debt but few prospects to pay off that burden and get on with their lives. Some even move back into their parents’ homes.
Gallup pollsters dug up some ugly numbers for April:
Gallup: 1 [...]
The Census released an interesting paper on Thursday, The Population With a Bachelor’s Degree or Higher by Race and Hispanic Origin: 2006–2010.
Reuters had a little blurb, which highlighted the smart, successful groups:
Asians lead U.S. in college degrees: Census, Reuters, May 24, 2012
Asians are the most highly educated group of Americans, with more than half with [...]
Good news from the heartland. Kansas’ decision to affirm the Constitution over foreign totalitarian Islamic law is an important victory in the long war.
I’m relieved that Brownback did the right thing. His Senate career showed a propensity for strange values in the general category of diversity, to be kind. He promoted the admittance of Somali [...]
Novelist Tom Wolfe announced several years ago that his next book would take place in south Florida and would explore immigration. One can only hope that he will skewer the diversity cult in his own unique style.
Wolfe engaged Oscar Corral, a reporter from the Miami Herald, to sherpa him through the local culture, and Corral [...]
