#559: More headlines

High school bans American flag. Actually they've banned all flags because they wish to avoid "controversy". They don't want to have to "pick and choose" which flags are permissible.

In reality they don't want to be sued because they allow flag "A" and not flag "B".

Considering that it's a US government school, though, the American flag should be allowable. Well, if they won't allow it, they should also "ban" accepting federal funding. Where do they think that money comes from?


Walter Williams discusses the way in which Democrats pander to--and demean--blacks.

If a Republican had tried to use Hillary's exact words ("I don't feel no ways tired. I come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me that the road would be easy. I don't believe He brought me this far.") he would have been denounced six ways from Sunday as a racist. (Particularly a white Republican. But I'm positive a "Republican of color" would have been called racist, too.) But it's okay for Hillary because, after all, she married the "first black President".

You don't remember that?

The Congressional Black Caucus said Bill Clinton was the first black President.



This article on Ars Technica takes homeopathy to task.

It is really hard for me to take Ars Technica seriously, though, at least when they make any scientific pronouncements. That site is utterly uncritical of "global warming=man made=apocalypse", saying that the science has been "solved" and that we're all doomed unless we act now to reduce carbon emissions.

Their claim to be scientifically savvy seems only to apply to things other than the religion of anthropogenic global warming. I have discussed that issue far too many times to link here, but suffice it to say that the science isn't settled, the causality isn't even close to being demonstrated much less proven, and people whose paychecks depend on global warming being man-made are cooking the books.

I can't take their "scientific" articles seriously.
