Communism Was Worse than Apartheid

Communism Was Worse than Apartheid: But let us accept, just for argument's sake, Kleiner's misleading claim that conservatives supported apartheid. An honest comparison of apartheid and communism would have to conclude that communism is, by far, the worse evil. Communism killed millions of people worldwide, in addition to condemning millions to poverty. Apartheid subjected millions of black people to terrible oppression, but killed few--and the black population of South Africa grew during that time. (Notably, life expectancy in the post-apartheid era has fallen dramatically.)

The ANC's choice to align with the Soviet Union was understandable, given that non-violent resistance to apartheid had largely failed by 1960, and the communists were the only source of arms. Yet on balance, that alliance, in addition to being morally problematic, likely set back the anti-apartheid struggle by a decade or more by alienating allies in the free world. Of course, few Americans who supported the anti-apartheid struggle supported communism. Yet that alliance meant that building such support was more difficult.

Uh oh: 7 in 10 Doctors Boycotting California's Obamacare Exchange - Leah Barkoukis

Uh oh: 7 in 10 Doctors Boycotting California's Obamacare Exchange - Leah Barkoukis: Why? Because when asking physicians to participate in the exchange, the memorandum of understanding failed to provide reimbursement rates. As expected, few physicians were willing to blindly agree to participate without knowing what the rates would be.

Uh oh: 7 in 10 Doctors Boycotting California's Obamacare Exchange - Leah Barkoukis

Who would have guessed? Physicians, like I’m sure most working adults, would rather not be paid a fraction of what their services are worth, so are choosing not to participate. This in turn means the pool of doctors available to patients will be smaller. And worse yet, they're currently being led to believe that more doctors are participating than actually are.

Obama is the World’s Worst Investor - Lurita Doan - Page full

Obama is the World’s Worst Investor - Lurita Doan - Page full: Any way that Americans look at it, Obama’s record as an investor is appalling. He has blown through trillions of dollars of taxpayer money, added another 5 trillion dollars of debt and has little to show for all the spending. Time and again, his touted investments have gone bust, and never has he been able to achieve the returns he has promised. Curiously, despite these poor returns, the president continues to campaign on the promise of making even more “investments” for the American people.

Stimulating Infrastructure Projects Without Spending More Money - Lurita Doan - Page full

Stimulating Infrastructure Projects Without Spending More Money - Lurita Doan - Page full: President Obama and his team of White House advisors are wrong: no additional federal funding is needed to stimulate a federal construction boom that would launch job-creation in cities across the United States. What is needed, desperately, is no-cost, regulatory reform of the existing federal building process. Currently, the average cycle to conceive, design, fund and ultimately construct a federal building takes approximately 7 years. That’s just too long.

U-CAT Robotic Sea Turtle Set To Explore Shipwrecks - Slashdot: "When was the last time you heard about a sea turtle getting stuck in a shipwreck? Never, that's when. Although that's partly because stuck turtles rarely make the news, it's also due to the fact that they're relatively small and highly maneuverable. With that in mind, the European Union-funded ARROWS project has created U-CAT – a prototype robotic sunken-ship-exploring sea turtle."

McDonald's orders 7,000 touchscreen kiosks to replace cashiers - Neowin: Electronic menus that replace physical beings is nothing new. Microsoft has been pushing its touchscreen computer, the Surface, which has mostly been a big hit at Vegas casinos, hotels, and clubs — where users can order from the table, play around with the image onscreen, and... "flirt" with people at other tables. For the last couple of years, there have been touchscreen kiosks stationed at at least seven McDonald's restaurants in Australia. McDonald's says they have no interest in replacing cashiers with kiosks in Australia, however, or anywhere else for that matter.

Experts say Obamacare site should have cost $5-10 million | The Daily Caller

Experts say Obamacare site should have cost $5-10 million | The Daily Caller: “I would say to build a site like this with the infrastructure, the architecture around it, you are looking at maybe $5 million to $10 million at a very maximum rate,” said David Kennedy, president of the technology firm TrustedSec. “It isn’t rocket science.”

“I would agree with Mr. Kennedy in the $5 million-$10 million range max,” Luke Chung, president and founder of the technology firm FMS, concurred.

“[N]one of these contractors are ever held accountable for delivering such crap,” he added.

According to CNN, the government paid outside contractors more than $300 million to build the preposterously-troubled Obamacare website. Other estimates put the number higher.

Turley: Obama's "Become The Very Danger The Constitution Was Designed To Avoid" | Video | RealClearPolitics

Turley: Obama's "Become The Very Danger The Constitution Was Designed To Avoid" | Video | RealClearPolitics: JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he's not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He's becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power in every single branch.

This Newtonian orbit that the three branches exist in is a delicate one but it is designed to prevent this type of concentration. There is two trends going on which should be of equal concern to all members of Congress. One is that we have had the radical expansion of presidential powers under both President Bush and President Obama. We have what many once called an imperial presidency model of largely unchecked authority. And with that trend we also have the continued rise of this fourth branch. We have agencies that are quite large that issue regulations. The Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction.

It is the only possible way to avoid the shame.
Reminding me that I must suffer through.
Reminding that I must persist.

Shopkeepers have done more for human happiness than generals, statesmen or kings – Telegraph Blogs

Shopkeepers have done more for human happiness than generals, statesmen or kings – Telegraph Blogs: Day after day, small entrepreneurs take risks that make the rest of us blanch. They are unlocking and setting up when many of us are just getting out of bed. They put up with everything that governments throw at them, every tax, every regulation, every restriction. And they carry on, stoically, paying for the schemes of the politicians who disdain them.

Shopkeepers have done more for human happiness than generals, statesmen or kings – Telegraph Blogs: When Napoleon called us “une nation de boutiquiers”, a nation of shopkeepers, he meant to insult us. Down the centuries, many Continentals have disparaged what they see as the soulless money-grubbing of the English-speaking peoples. Fascists and communists used remarkably similar language when they attacked “decadent Anglo-Saxon capitalism” — though, happily for the human race, it turned out not to be in decay at all.

Articles: Common Core Standards: Throwing Gasoline on a Fire

By Bruce Deitrick Price

Common Core was sold to the public as a way to improve public schools.  Arguably, it's the opposite.

First of all, the people in charge have been in charge for 85 years.  They have proved themselves to be architects of mediocrity and decline, nothing else. 

Second, Common Core locks in place bad ideas that have plagued us for decades.  Sight-words in reading, Reform Math curricula in arithmetic, Constructivism in the teaching of knowledge, and many other failed theories and methods beloved by left-wing professors.

Third, Common Core Standards give federal bureaucrats more power.  Communities will have less flexibility.  It's everything a totalitarian government wants.

Osric Chau - Today is Kevin's Birthday. He didn't go to... | Facebook

Osric Chau - Today is Kevin's Birthday. He didn't go to... | Facebook

Today is Kevin's Birthday. He didn't go to Princeton or get a high school diploma. He never made it to senior prom or ever knew the butterflies in your stomach when you see your date in a dress for the first time. And he never got to know his dad, or say goodbye to his mom..

On this 20th birthday, he also didn't get any power ranger powers. Professor Oak did not call and ask him which starter Pokemon he'd like. Instead Dean brings out an apple pie from the kitchen while Sam hurries to put in a candle and light it before Kevin notices the smell. Together they enter the library and they sing, notes and pitches all over the place, Sam an octave and a half above Dean. They walk and sing and walk and sing, and by the time they get to "Keeeeevinnnn" they trail off.. seeing Kevin's concerned face over their performance.
Dean puts the pie down beside the tablet.
Silence.

And then a deep roar in perfect pitch comes out from the basement, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUU!"
They all look towards the stairs with the 'was that Crowley?' look.
"COULDN'T FINISH THE TRIALS, COULDN'T FINISH THE KING OF HELL, WHY DON'T YOU START BY LEARNING HOW TO FINISH OFF A BLOODY SONG?"
Sam and Dean look at each other.
Dean glances over to Kevin, not quite making eye contact "Right. Happy Birthday Kev."
Sam does that scrunch face thing with his mouth while nodding his head in agreement.
Kevin looks at both of them and shakes his head with a smile.. then ALL OF A SUDDEN RADIOACTIVE OOZE SPLASHES ALL OVER HIM! Sam and Dean look up, there was an unseen tub of waste above Kevin's seat in the library. Oh no, Kevin's mutating. Oh yes, Kevin's now a turtle. A teenaged turtle at that. As Dean and Sam throw paper towels at him to clean the mess up, Kevin starts to move around like never before! Whoa, no way, he knows ninja techniques! He grabs the pie, spears it into Dean's mouth. He picks Sam's phone from his pocket and calls up for pizza delivery. Dean eating away with a mouthful of pie, Sam sticking out his bottom lip and nodding this time, impressed.

Hmm, not sure if the ending fits, but i'll keep it in there. Happy Birthday Kevin!

The Swedish media states that a large number of police mobilized to prevent “50 right-wing extremists” from patrolling the streets of Tumba, a suburb of Stockholm.

Ukraine opposition eggs on protests after parliament setback - Yahoo News

Ukraine opposition eggs on protests after parliament setback - Yahoo News: Kiev (AFP) - Ukraine's opposition called Tuesday for sustained pressure from the street after days of protests that have plunged the country into its biggest crisis in nearly a decade, as the government survived a no-confidence vote in parliament.

Incensed by an 11-hour U-turn on a deal for closer ties with the European Union, thousands of Ukrainians took to the streets last month and are now demanding President Viktor Yanukovych's resignation.

The weekend witnessed Ukraine's largest protests since the 2004 pro-democracy Orange Revolution and around 30,000 were back in the street in central Kiev on Tuesday evening.

With HealthCare.gov 'Fixed,' Ohio Woman Sees Severe Sticker Shock | National Review Online

With HealthCare.gov 'Fixed,' Ohio Woman Sees Severe Sticker Shock | National Review Online: The administration has been pushing the narrative that the HealthCare.gov website is now fixed and that people are able to get affordable care. However, that’s certainly not the case for one Ohio woman.

Liz Binns told Newsnet 5 that the federal health-care exchange was no salvation for her and her husband. He has a preexisting condition and a job that doesn’t offer coverage. However, the cheapest plan she was able to find on the federal health-care exchange has a premium over $400 and a $5,000 deductible.

“I can’t afford it. I cannot afford it,” Binns said. She predicted that she would be able to pay off such costs only with “at least a second job and praying that I would make enough.”

Sin enamorarse, la única forma de enamorarlo a el.: Confundirse es lo habitual Confundirse es lo habitual
Y sigo volando arriba, y muchas veces veo cómo se paran algunos sin tener la posibilidad de continuar, ni alcanzar esos deseos que, años y años gastaron tras ellos. Un verdadero caos es lo que veo desde arriba. Veo el retrato perfecto del significado de la palabra “perdición”. Todo gris, todo tan oscuro. Y a la densa multitud poco le importa eso. Veo olas que se rompen entre sí. Y fuertes tormentas que no cesan y… simplemente, veo un cuadro, que seguramente ningún pintor lo pudiera pintar, ni ningún pintor se atrevería a ponerle su firma. Un cuadro difícil de comprender. Un cuadro muy antiguo, y el cual se guardará intacto muchos siglos más. Veo a mucha gente entre las pinturas de ese cuadro asfixiándose y ahogándose, buscando la salvación de una vida agonizante. En esa oscuridad es muy difícil distinguir entre un amigo y un enemigo, entre el bien y el mal. En esa oscuridad es fácil perderse y confundirse es lo habitual…

Obamacare Website Costs Top $1 Billion | Zero Hedge

Obamacare Website Costs Top $1 Billion | Zero Hedge: Although the GAO has made clear the limitations of its data, its $394 million tally for work through March 31 has been widely cited as the price tag for the entire launch of the "Affordable" Care Act. However, as Bloomberg's Peter Gosselin finds, looking at the full range of ACA-related contracts for just 10 firms, more than $1 billion worth of contract awards. Perhaps even more mind-blowing is that more than one third of the funds going to the top contractors working on the federal exchanges were awarded in the last six months - even as it was clear the project was failing.

Backdoor gun control is here: no lead means no bullets | Allen B. West - AllenBWest.comAllen B. West – AllenBWest.comI am one who steers very clear of tinfoil hat conspiracy theories. I often believe progressives plant stories in order to distract and disrupt, enabling them to pursue their true goals and objectives. That’s why I stress the importance of staying focused on the modern liberal socialist policies of the Obama administration, not the sideshow antics.

However, as a former combat commander, I have been trained to look for trends. And I believe we’ve found a very disturbing one. it seems that back door gun control is in full effect in the United States. Why? Thanks to Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we can no longer smelt lead from ore in the United States.

UCLA Junks English Literature for English Majors—Becomes Second Class Department—Promotes the Politics of Sex and Race

UCLA Junks English Literature for English Majors—Becomes Second Class Department—Promotes the Politics of Sex and Race

At UCLA, a self-proclaimed World Class University, graduating with a degree in English can now be compared with a similar degree from Podunk University—nice to claim, worthless in reality.  At UCLA you will NOT be taught English literature.

Instead students will be propagandized by the faculty, learning about the politics of sex, the superiority of races and vicious Leftist hate policies.  UCLA may have beat USC in football, but Podunk University has a real English Department, not a Department of Leftist Ideology.
“”Until 2011,” she noted, “students majoring in English at UCLA had been required to take one course in Chaucer, two in Shakespeare, and one in Milton — the cornerstones of English literature.

“Following a revolt of the junior faculty, however, during which it was announced that Shakespeare was part of the ‘Empire,’ UCLA junked these individual author requirements and replaced them with a mandate that all English majors take three courses in the following four areas: Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Disability, and Sexuality Studies; Imperial, Transnational, and Postcolonial Studies; genre studies, interdisciplinary studies, and critical theory; or creative writing.”
