University of Iowa becomes

IOWA CITY, Iowa— The University of Iowa has become the nation’s first public university to include optional questions about sexual orientation and gender identity on its application, a move hailed Wednesday by advocates hoping to improve the college experience for gays and lesbians. University officials say the move sends a strong signal that they value the diversity that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students bring to campus. They say that knowing some students’ sexual orientation will allow them to track their enrollment and graduation rates

Is nothing sacred or private anymore? All this to pander to maybe 2% of the population? Guess it is clear where their academic philosophy lies. Mamas don´t let your babies grow up to be Hawkeyes.

I suspect that if you answer "none of your business" you will not be admitted.

Affirmative action of a different color? Or perhaps the pedophiles on the faculty don´t want to work for their sexual gratification?

Government applications of all kinds shouldn´t ask any questions about race or now, sexual orientation. If a person applies for a government benefit is should be administered on a color and sex blind method.To do otherwise is a violation of equal protection against heterosexuals and white conservatives

I despise whole idea of diversity,it´s a liberal creation based on skin and not diversity of thought which would really enrich the school´s environment. All this crap leads to reverse racism which the SC has rejected many time. Affirmative action smoothly evolved into diversity which is an absurd concept. Why don´t these universities have quotas for conservative students?

If gays qualify for college admissions it should be merit based. I don´t see how being gay alone brings diversity to the table.This is the reason Obama took over college loans for idiotic social engineering which does the student no good at all.

the left thinks a merit based society is unfair.If you´re a failing individual,liberal utopinaism gives you equal standing a with an achiever.

The only reason for gun registration is eventual gun confiscation.

The only reason for recording sex, age, race and sexual orientation is for segregation.

And how does asking a question ´send a strong signal?´

U of Iowa must have a large grant to track GLBT admissions. Nowadays, you have to be out of the norm to get attention and assistance.
I´m conducting a personal experiment when dealing with utilities, bureaucrats and communications companies. If I need help I initially pose as AnyNormalPerson...and I get automated voicemails or eventually an inflexible agent who´s unwilling to provide options about my requests.
I then make a second call to the same office. I "become" a minority of some type and whammo! Within minutes, I am connected to the most compassionate, caring rep who will bust a gut trying to demonstrate how wonderful Comcast (the water department, tax assessor etc ) is, and I get special assistance AND follow up calls to be sure I was treated fairly.

asking for personal information to supposedly ´improve´ the experience or what ever cockamanie excuse is collection of information that no public institution (or private one, for that matter) needs to have access to. are you gay? do you have guns? do you have a religious afflilation? lots of questions that no one needs to have access to the answers.

What if every applicant answered "yes" to the gay question? Give them what they want, in spades.

If an applicant says they are black, it is obvious that they are. How exactly does one prove that they are gay?

More info to pigeon hole more people. Labeling people, counting them, etc., is a dirty, insidious business. It gets you the opposite of E Pluribus Unum.
I remember going to U.C.L.A. in the late ´60´s and never questioning why a Black or Chicano person was in my classes. By the time I graduated, these groups were by and large hunkered down in groups, often isolated, many secretly in over their heads academically, and you wondered what kinds of breaks they got to even be there. Divisive stuff. Label on, Lefties! Break out the gays now in your misguided attempts to force inclusiveness.

#5, a quick history lesson. Back in the 1950s, the mantra was equal opportunities for blacks. But when that didn´t produce enough black hires or admissions, the 1960s and LBJ brought us affirmative action. And when affirmative action did not bring about the amount of admissions/hires, the mantra switched to diversity, for diversity´s sake, that there was strength through diversity, that diversity, by itself was valuable.
This final position, which will be with us forever, will prevail. Diversity for diversity´s sake. And if anyone has two brain cells to rub together, that person will realize that in real live, we avoid diversity wherever possible, because it is discomfiting.
But the myth will be perpetuated.
Except for basketball and football.

Homosexual behavior is a choice. Straight today, gay tomorrow, straight again on day after. There´s nothing genetic about it.

Sadly, to get admitted, you are probably going to have to answer ´´yes´´ to that question.

You know the whole purpose of that question is to make sure that every homosexual that applies gets accepted. That way they can honestly claim that 60% of their freshmen are homosexuals, so that must be the % of homosexuals in the general population of this country. Which, of course, the MSM will immediately start to report as the truth!!!

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´
Medicare Providers and Suppliers

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

Obama Administration Wants UN to Come Up With
Fake Numbers to Back ‘Climate Change’ Legislation
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
