  • Based on the stereotypes of their psychological attributes are libertarians more likely to be descriptivists whilst socialists are more likely to be prescriptivists?

  • Is yellow fever a derogatory term for xenosexuals with a romantic preference for persons of Asian descent? Or is it a neutral term that could be used both lightheartedly & derogatorily depending on the circumstance?

    #Xenosexual [See: Xenosexuals] #YellowFever #AsianFetish

    P.S. Yellow fever isn't my thing, but I find it interesting. I prefer being with people who are easy to get along with. I suppose I select dating partners mostly based on their psychographic whatnot rather than their demographic whatnot.

  • Vice-President Kamala Harris got jeered in Guatemala, and deservedly so, after telling the Guatemalan people, “Do not come. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border.”

    ...under Biden we will continue to see the same sorts of things we have seen for decades in immigration, to wit:

    1. An ongoing, never-ending, perpetual immigration crisis.

    2. Death and suffering of people trying to illegally enter the United States.

    3. A black market in the transportation of immigrants trying to enter the United States illegally.

    4. The continuation of the Berlin Fence and Berlin Wall constructed by both Democrats and Republicans along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    5. The continuation and probably an expansion of the immigration police state that exists on the U.S.-Mexico border, including warrantless trespasses on ranches and farms, violent raids on American businesses, domestic checkpoints and roving Border Patrol checkpoints on American highways, and boarding of Greyhound buses to check people’s papers.

  • Do governments often grant special privileges to labour unions? Is this often at the expense of those not in the union(s)? Is there a way to maintain the popularity of labor unions without mandating them monopoly powers?

  • I'm vaccinated, but I 100% oppose vaccine passports -- that is some creepy stuff. Persuasion is better than force. Getting vaccines should be euvoluntary not "arguably voluntary".

  • “The fact that so many successful politicians are such shameless liars is not only a reflection on them, it is also a reflection on us. When the people want the impossible, only liars can satisfy.”

  • It is a very wholesome and regenerating change which a man undergoes when he "comes to himself." It is not only after periods of
    recklessness or infatuation, when has played the spendthrift or the
    fool, that a man comes to comes to himself. He comes to himself
    after experiences of which he alone may be aware: when he has left
    off being wholly preoccupied with his own powers and interests and
    with every petty plan that centers in himself; when he has cleared
    his eyes to see the world as it is, and his own true place and
    function in it.

  • "Barack Obama & the DC School Voucher Program: The president says he wants to do 'what's best for kids.' So why won't he save a proven program that helps low-income students?"

    Mercedes Campbell is one of the 1,700 students in the Washington, D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, a school-voucher program authorized by Congress in 2004. The program gives students up to $7,500 to attend whatever school their parents choose. For kids like Mercedes, who now attends Georgetown Visitation Prep, the DC voucher program is a way out of one of the worst school districts in the country.

    "It's different, now that I go to Visitation," says Mercedes. "I approach things differently. It's like a whole new world, basically."

    The program is wildly popular with parents and children—there are four applicants for every available slot—and a recent Department of Education study found that participants do significantly better than their public school peers. Indeed, after three years in private schools, students who entered the program at its inception were 19 months ahead in reading of applicants unlucky enough to still be trapped in D.C.'s public schools.

    Yet working with congressional Democrats and despite his pledge to put politics and ideology aside in education, the Obama administration has effectively killed the program through a backdoor legislative move. "[Education] Secretary [Arne] Duncan will use only one test in what ideas to support with your precious tax dollars," says the president. "It's not whether it's liberal or conservative, but whether it works."

    That sort of doublespeak has left many Obama supporters not just puzzled but outraged. Certainly, Mercedes is. "Out of everything else they can shut down or everything else they can advocate for, they want to take this one thing away?" Adds her mother, Ingrid, "We voted for you, we walked, we went to the parade, we stood freezing. Why?...Can you get this tape over to Obama and have him answer our questions? Why, sir, why?"

    That's the question that will be asked on Wednesday, May 6, from 1P.M. to 2P.M., at a D.C. rally to reauthorize the voucher program. For more details, go here.

    "Barack Obama and the DC School Voucher Program" is approximately 5.30 minutes long and was produced by Dan Hayes and Nick Gillespie.
