There was a time, of course, that schools actually taught children ethical values and individual responsibility. But Progressive didn't like that so the schools stopped doing it. So as a result, we have young people who have no moral center who take no responsibility for their own actions. Not all young people, of course, because some parents still do an excellent job and there are always other institutions out there besides the schools that can help.

But here's one important point: there are Rapists out there who rape not as a result of education or the lack thereof, but because they like to commit Rape. And I don't think it is victim-blaming to say that sending young people out into the world without the tools they need to operate safely in a world where such people exist is unconscionable.
False accusations of rape do happen in a small percentage of cases, but the more common injustice is lax mores that let predators get away with it.

This is the guy Chuck Johnson attacked - ironic, because this guy is just as much a conspiracy theorist as Johnson apparently.

Johnson is a moron and he also messes up my Real Names Theory of Twitter Behavior. They should keep him banned until he grows up.
This kind of tweet might have slipped through the system a few months back.

Obviously some sort of BDSM - Either Dudes with Dudes or Dudes with Dominatrixes.
The stash of pornography reportedly found in the hideout of Osama Bin Laden by US commandos will not be declassified released "due to the nature of their contents", an official has said.

Paging Ned Ludd
 
The prospect of machines stealing our jobs has perturbed and enraged humans for at least 200 years. The Luddites hit the alarm bell, and not without reason: The automation of weaving and spinning technology displaced an entire class of skilled artisans. But ever since, economists and historians have dismissed the Luddites as jokes, because the forces of industrialization they decried ended up making the world a far richer and more comfortable pla...

Social Darwinism with artificial selection. Everyone becomes outmoded if they live too long. Either the job disappears, or they can't compete with the younger, cheaper applicants. And with these crises timed to destroy the highest concentrations of wealth, well, you might as well pick your gutter and your state crematorium. No use lying around all dead.

Sad news. 
Nash was in Norway on Tuesday to receive the Abel Prize for mathematics from King Harald V for his work, along with longtime colleague Louis Nirenberg, on nonlinear partial differential equations.

I actually don't share his concern. As Margaret Thatcher pointed out, the problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.

We have already run out of other people's money.
 
A generation ago, a socialist running for POTUS would not have received any serious consideration from the majority of the voting public. Fast forward to today and you have a card-carrying socialist making no bones about it that he intends introduce socialist legislation and advance socialist economic principles if elected.

The political rise of Bernie Sanders is a startling example of the introduction and pervasiveness of socialism at all levels of academia in the US, from entrance in primary education to university graduation. This insidious incursion and occupation of our educational institutions has produced a generation of young adults who feel they are entitled to the wealth of their neighbors and the concept of exceptionalism - both individual and nationalistic, has been replaced with a lethargic, minimalist groupthink mentality emphasizing equality of wealth and status for minimal labor and participation.

This is unacceptable and unsustainable. If Bernie Sanders is elected President, it will become an irrevocable reality. It will mean equal wages, equal wealth, and equal goods and services, no one will be wealthier or more exceptional than the other. We will all be equal - equal poverty, equal misery, equal quality of goods and services; the burger-flipper will earn the same as the welder and firefighter and the in-between-jobs, dope-smoking"artist" next door will have everything that you have worked your ass off for, in fact....you will have paid for it, whether you like it or not. These socialist concepts of income redistribution are already occuring. A President Bernie Sanders will only solidify them.

The "fundamental changing of America" began in 2008 with President Barack Obama. It will be solidified under a President Bernie Sanders. In 2016 we had better choose wisely!

You first. Under communism, the people own the property collectively with no intervening state. Theoretically.

This is my 4th Grade Class - 1975-1976. That's me on the top row in the shirt with the green collar.

Personally, I agree with Chief Justice John Roberts that "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."

And separating elementary school students into racial affinity groups http://nypost.com/2015/05/24/the-newest-liberal-idiocy-segregating-3rd-graders/ is a Progressive Idea that I thought died the miserable death it deserved long ago.

So, apparently, you would discriminate on the basis of height.

In my experience carnivals were school fundraisers not a way to make parents pay to participate.
 
And people worry about for-profit schools having the wrong incentives....

Not only did she damage the Journalistic Integrity of such venerated institutions as The Mary Sue and Boing Boing she also made life easier for criminals in Ohio.

Hopefully she learned a valuable lesson from this.
The office of Ron O’Brien, prosecuting attorney for Columbus, Ohio, was deluged with emails and phonecalls that “wasted time and resources” following an online campaign whipped up by Brianna Wu, a controversial video game developer. Wu published a widely-shared article on The Mary

I spent 4 nights there during DragonCon. Outside of a refrigerator, there are no frills. The rooms are small and have minimal furniture. There seemed to be no snack machines on the site so bring your own. There was also (as stated) no Internet access offered. On the plus side, the room rate was extremely reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. A Pizza Hut that makes deliveries is very close by. Driving distance to downtown is 5 minutes. It isn't the kind of place I would want to vacation in, but as a place to go back to at the end of the night and leave early the next morning, it suited my purposes extremely well.
