Angry White Male Studies — The latest Worthless College Course

While much has been written about worthless college courses, the “Angry White Male Studies,” course, which will be offered at the University of Kansas in the fall of 2019, takes the cake.  It is right up there with a course offered at Stanford, “White Identity Politics,” and one at Hunter College in New York called the “Abolition of Whiteness.”

How is any of that garbage going to help a young person land a good job and succeed in life unless one is seeking employment as a race-baiter?  It might help if you are applying with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/Push Coaltion or Al Sharpton’s National Action Network,  non-profits in the business of shaking down businesses for contributions, concessions or contracts.  Rather limited, don’t you think?

The Angry White Male Studies course requires students take “Women, Gender, and Sexuality” 101 or 102 as a prerequisite. But of course!  What a natural transition between gender studies, i.e. radical feminism, and hating Continue reading “Angry White Male Studies — The latest Worthless College Course”

Congress Fiddles while U.S. Burns

Legend has it that the emperor Nero played the fiddle while the ancient city of Rome burned for six days, destroying 70 percent of the city and leaving half of its population homeless.

While it is unlikely this actually happened, given that the violin hadn’t been invented yet, it is true that he was an unpopular, evil, ineffectual leader in a time of crises.  Some believe he actually started the fire because he used this opportunity to build a magnificent palace surrounded by lush gardens for himself on the land that had been cleared by the blaze.

Now it’s Congress that is fiddling around while the country is facing, not one, but two crises.   The first is our national debt that has reached a staggering $22 trillion, with no real plan for relief in sight. Continue reading “Congress Fiddles while U.S. Burns”

Just Say “NO Thank You” to IWD, Girl Scouts and Their Cookies

This is the week where real feminists separate from their radical counterparts.  For the uninformed, March 8, is officially International Women’s Day, but it is the catalyst for weeklong events held throughout this country and around the world.   Sounds harmless, if not downright inspiring to many unsuspecting women and girls who want to celebrate the right to be all that they can be.  Unfortunately, it comes with a lot of baggage you may not want for your daughter or yourself.https://www.americanprogress.org/events/2019/02/26/466672/international-womens-day/

This annual event was begun in 1909 in New York by the Socialist Party of America.  In 1917, it became a national holiday in Russia and was primarily celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until 1975 when it was embraced by the United Nations. Continue reading “Just Say “NO Thank You” to IWD, Girl Scouts and Their Cookies”

SOTU Exposes Democrats Soft Underbelly (A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Insincere Words)

As State of the Union speeches go they are usually yawners.  This one, with few exceptions, was a barn burner.

If you missed it, don’t worry; you will see its most dramatic moments replayed over and over in Republican 2020 campaign ads.  Trump deftly used this address to expose the Democrats soft underbelly of open borders, devoid of bipartisanship and reason.

The president set the tone when he invited Democrats to “Choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.”  Clearly the Democrats, with few exceptions, decided on, gridlock, resistance, vengeance and destruction.

Democratic women, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, did themselves no favor by wearing white, which they said was to express solidarity with working women around the country.  They want us to believe Continue reading “SOTU Exposes Democrats Soft Underbelly (A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Insincere Words)”

Wage Gap Explained, Again

Why do more college-educated women continue to prefer Democrat candidates over Republican?  Surely they are smart enough to understand that capitalism (preferred by Republicans), though not perfect, provides a higher standard of living than socialism (preferred by Democrats)!

Perhaps they simply are too busy working to pay off student loans, while trying to balance a career and motherhood, to notice.   These women seem to fall for the line Democrats trot out before every election about the wage gap.  It goes like this:  Women working full-time make only 82 percent of what a man makes.  It’s not fair.  No matter how hard you work you are going to wind up on the short end of the stick and, of course, you need Democrats to save you from this ugly form of discrimination.

Democrats are the party that is against all forms of discrimination unless, of course, it involves discrimination against men in general and white and Asian men in particular. Continue reading “Wage Gap Explained, Again”

Look Who is Racist Now

Many years ago I discovered a dirty little secret about left-wing ideologues in the Democratic Party.  Yes, I know these terms are largely redundant.  The few remaining Democrats who don’t fit that description are either political neophytes or hopeless optimists.    They still believe the party line about protecting the poor and working class.

The dirty little secret is that when liberals don’t have an argument they can sell, rather than discuss policy, they call you names.  “Racist” and “sexist” are two of the most overused.

Now, after the Kavanaugh debacle, they have been exposed.  The liberals, who vowed to defeat this brilliant jurist no matter what the cost, have turned that argument back on themselves.  They wanted — and still want — to convict Kavanaugh of sexual assault with no evidence simply because he is a white male.   Continue reading “Look Who is Racist Now”

Time to Forgive

“To Err is Human, to Forgive Devine” Alexander Pope 1688-1744

A cadre of former Trump haters was recently asked about the president’s past sins which include allegations of sexual improprieties, one night stands and/or affairs with women.  To this House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi replied,  (parentheses mine)

“I do not believe that it is my place to question the accounts put forth by the women but I do find myself asking that if we are examining (his) industry (building & entertainment) as it existed decades before through the lens of 2018 should we also discuss a path to learning, reconciliation, and forgiveness?”

Rep. Maxine Water’s chimed in,

To reach a point where we can accept some space between zero accountability and complete destruction, we must first grapple with the issue of equivalency. If we paint episodes of vulgar and deeply regrettable behavior from (a decade or more) ago with the same brush as serial criminal behavior, we will never move forward and, more importantly, we eschew the complicated nuances of context for the easier path of absolutes.”

The View’s Joy Behar summed things up:

“Outrage is a valuable commodity…but its usefulness can be diminished by overuse. And understanding and learning from the past is the only way towards a future that reflects real change.”

This call for civility, forgiveness and understanding for a man accused of sexual harassment over a decade ago, but who has been a champion of women, promoting them in a field that had previously barred them from holding positions of power and influence, unfortunately was not directed at Trump by these three women.

No! All of the above was in a statement from CBS Films president Terry Press in defense of CBS Corporation chairman and CEO, Les Moonves who was accused of sexual misconduct by six women.   It followed even more forceful statements of support by CBS executives, Ad Sales chief Jo Ann Ross and head of daytime Angelica McDaniel.

This was not unlike the statements of support from females in Congress and other positions of influence for Bill Clinton after he was impeached for charges related to his sexual involvement with an intern, no less, in the hallowed Oval Office.

Clinton was viewed by his supporters as just too valuable to the country, in general, and the women’s movement, in particular, to be hoisted by his own petard.

Isn’t it a shame that our current president, who has done so much to turn this country around, while taking no salary for his work as the nation’s chief executive, isn’t given the same consideration?  After all, the charges against him are at least a decade or more old and don’t involve the workplace.

Men like Moonves, post-Clinton, probably will not survive.  Some shouldn’t.  However,  to allow Moonves to be forgiven would, indeed, be viewed as a double standard for those who hate Trump so much that they now believe any past sexual sins should disqualify him from holding the highest office in the land.  They want Trump impeached so badly many seem willing to believe any charge against any man, no matter how spurious, how ludicrous or how old, just to justify their claim against the president’s legitimacy.

Trump, like Moonves, is from another era, where men often measured their manhood against their ability to seduce women.  Even if they had no intention of doing anything improper, they were often guilty of bragging about this ability to other men.  Some of these men actually viewed making suggestive remarks or flirting as a way to give a woman a compliment.  I’ve encountered my share.  Smart women either changed jobs, ignored these clumsy advances or found a way to let a man know this was not acceptable while letting him keep his dignity.

However, none of the women who claim Trump had affairs with them or one-night stands or gave them unwanted attention were his employees as was the case Moonves.  In fact, many sought his attention.

Trump is well-known for promoting women in his industry like Louise Sunshine who rose to executive vice-president of the Trump organization.  Sunshine worked for Trump for 15 years and has admitted that he often chided her about her appearance.  However, she wasn’t offended.  She said, “It was a reminder that I wasn’t perfect…It was just his way.”

They and the others who were promoted by Trump defend him to the hilt and forgave him for his imperfections.  Isn’t it time the rest of the country took a deep breath and did the same.
