On the last day of 2013, one bad statistic is the amount of rainfall for California; this year has been among the driest around the state, and the driest ever on record in San Francisco.
The average precipitation for the city, as recorded from 1849, is around 21 inches; this year saw only 5.59 inches.
Elsewhere, Yosemite […]
How backward is Afghanistan? One measure is the fact that everyone has the same birthday, January 1, because the use of modern calendars hasn’t quite reached there yet.
It’s a mystery why anyone in Washington ever thought that nation-building had a chance in such a retro place. Liberals must have thought that killing the Taliban without […]
The Monty Python funny guys may be getting old, but they don’t want to face an early death caused by angering touchy Muslims. They are famous for tweaking religion in their 1979 comedy The Life of Brian, but there won’t be The Life of Mohammed coming any time soon.
It’s too bad, since the history of […]
The Associated Press has plopped out an article that is rather curious. It worries over the idea that immigrants are increasingly living in communities of “racial isolation.” The scribbler visits California farm town Watsonville and frets that nearly everyone is Mexican and speaks Spanish. A hispanic who was the first mayor of his ethnicity observed, […]
What happens to a nation when the liberal political party uses its time in power to import millions of immigrants who support big government in order to pump up its voter numbers?
You get today’s overcrowded England, which is the result of Tony Blair and his Labour Party’s treasonous finagling.
(Any perceived similarity to today’s Obama amnesty […]
Now that long-term unemployment benefits for over a million workers are about to end, the press is full of stories about Americans who cannot find jobs. It’s a fine opportunity for the liberal media to bash hard-hearted Republicans who don’t want to extend the program (which would require still more insane borrowing).
MSNBC went so far […]
Sweden has been remarkably generous in welcoming foreigners to settle in their nation, going so far as to invite all Syrian refugees to come and live there. Curiously, the offer came even after the days of foreigner rioting in Stockhom last spring, so the Swedes’ liberal urges are stubborn indeed. Plus, the poorly mannered newbies […]
On Friday, I heard a radio report about “migrant” farmworkers who live in taxpayer-subsidized housing in Watsonville, one of 24 such facilities in California. The existence of specific welfare for foreign nationals is part of the “welcoming” attitude the state has toward foreigners, which liberals regard as a sign of their moral superiority.
The immigration status […]
On this religious holiday for many Americans, we shouldn’t forget the Christians around the world who are persecuted under the Islamic jackboot. Muslims sometimes use Christian holidays as an occasion to attack followers of Jesus, and this Christmas has been no exception:
In Baghdad, “Christmas Day bombings in Iraq’s capital kill 37” (AP), in three separate […]
In Mexifornia, the growing population of hispanic kids is still doing poorly in school compared with the palefaces. A recent meditation from the Associated Press implies that the problem is Low Expectations, neatly pinning the blame on teachers and society as a whole. No mention of non-scholarly cultures at home.
However, Asian kids who attend […]
Every Christmas season, the world glances toward Bethlehem and sometimes notices the disappearing Christians in the town of Jesus’ birth as hostile Muslims make life untenable there and beyond.
A century ago, Bethlehem was 90 percent Christian. Today the population has dwindled to around 15 percent. So now the place is a Muslim town with a […]
Public Radio International, aka PRI, is a media outfit that produces a half-hour program on the local NPR station called “The World”. It is quite the celebration of diversity, even more than the mother ship of NPR, if that is possible.
A recent item opined that “an amazing diversity” of Muslim taxi drivers in New York […]
