American Thinker: Signs Pointing To A McCain Victory

Don’t believe the Obama hype coming out of the mainstream media. If the media were truly objective and unbiased, they would be covering the race much differently. Instead of trying to browbeat the country into voting for Obama, they would be analyzing the issues and factors that favor and disfavor both candidates. Instead of focusing on college students and intellectuals, they would be focusing on working-class and middle-class voters, especially “Hillary Democrats.” These voters may very well determine the election. Yet this huge story is being ignored by the MSM.

With This Proposition I Thee Wed….

Category: gay marriageamuzikman @ 6:36 pm

Here in California we have a proposition on the November ballot that would amend the state constitution, defining marriage as between one man and one woman. This issue has already been the subject of a  state-wide vote in California and in 2000 Prop 22 passed with a 61%-38% margin.  But four members of the California Supreme Court decided they knew better than the voters and declared Prop 22 unconstitutional, (and who says you can’t legislate from the bench?). Thus we now have Prop 8.

Prior to voting on this very important issue it might not be a bad idea to examine what has happened in Massachusetts since gay marriage was legalized there.

There is an article is posted on the website of a group called Mass Resistance, a self-described “pro-family action group” in Massachusetts. It is a sobering read.  Do not be naive, this issue is about MUCH more than simply being able to marry the one you love.

PLEASE take the time to read, “What same-sex marriage has done to Massachusetts”.  Then vote “yes” on Proposition 8.

African American Male Interaction

Category: diversityharmonicminer @ 9:03 am

Mike Adams describes a new college course called Effective Interactions With African-American Males.  Here’s the catalog description, and you can read his comments at the link:

Using an African-centered philosophical worldview and a racial socialization framework, this class will use participatory education to equip undergraduate and/or graduate students, to “better” understand and effectively work alongside and with young adult African-American men. The core tenets underlying this class are racial oppression exists, matters, is ubiquitous and pernicious and that those most affected are often ignorant of this reality.

Adams asks several questions about the course and its content, some funny, some tragic, and worth reading.
