Scientific Groupthink and Gay Parenting
American Magazine, by Richard E. Redding

Original Article

Posted By:eagleblurst, 12/19/2013 8:38:56 AM

University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus’s study, “How Different Are the Adult Children of Parents Who Have Same-Sex Relationships? Findings from the New Family Structures Study,” published in the academic journal Social Science Research last year, caused a firestorm in the scientific community. Unlike most previous studies, Regnerus found that children of parents who had experienced a same-sex relationship fared worse than children of heterosexual parents on measures of social, emotional, and psychological adjustment as well as educational attainment, employment history, need for public assistance, substance abuse, and criminal justice system involvement. The reaction to the Regnerus study was

Telling how well the "gay agenda" crowd can bury a story that doesn´t support their twisted views. This study was published last year, and how many have heard of it?

Another reason why GLAAD has to attack The Robertsons- an unabashedly Christian,heterosexual, happy and successful Family.
DD destroys the Lefts narrative.
Btw DC is richest per capita 73k vs 43k yet the black parts run by Dem leftists are poorest thanks to LBJs deliberate destruction of Black Christian Family and rise of illegitimacy to 70%.
Is that why msm doesn´t point out the Obama is illegitimate by birth? BHO sr was already married and so was Frank Marshall Davis.

This illustrates why many people do not consider "social sciences" to be science at all. The outcome of a study depends too much on the biases of the studier. An experiment in the true sciences, the physical sciences produces no such uncertainty of outcome. Combust a hydrocarbon and oxygen, for example, and you get carbon dioxide and water vapor--every single time and regardless of the biases of the experimenter. As a cash starved university student(and which ones are not), I participated in a number of psychology studies where I was paid for my input. If, for example, the experimenter was a cute chick, I can assure you that I warped my input in a way that I hoped would enhance my future social opportunities with said chick. I think most, if not all social science studies are corrupted by similar biases and consequently have no faith in any of them.

But the libs want it to be normal, so they need to believe it is normal, and since gays are an oppressed demographic, they cannot be wrong, so therefore it is right. The only ones who suffer are the ones they say they are trying to help, so they are consistent.

First, what sort of children are we talking about? Male homosexuals cannot procreate, and female cannot procreate without a sperm donor of some sort. So where do these "children" come from? Are they even gentically related to the "parents"?

Of course, the obvious point is that abnormal and mentally ill parents are much more likely to rear dysfunctional children.

Well, duh.

Absurdities at the IRS
American Magazine, by Aparna Mathur    Original Article
Posted By: eagleblurst- 4/14/2014 9:23:59 AM     Post Reply
As Tax Day approaches and social media goes wild with messages extolling animosity towards the IRS, one would do well to remember the glory days of the IRS as an agent of good. In 1930s Chicago, American gangster Al “Scarface” Capone led a Prohibition-era crime syndicate dedicated to bootlegging and other illegal activities, including bribery, prostitution, and execution of rival gang members. He made vast sums of money from his business ventures. In 1927, he brought in an estimated $100 million — more than $1 billion in today’s dollars.

When Setting Tax Policy, Don’t

Last Friday, the House of Representatives took a sensible step to counteract the short-run focus that too often drives tax and budget policy decisions. The House voted 224-182 to pass H.R. 1874, the Pro-Growth Budgeting Act, which would require the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation to analyze the effects of major tax and budget bills on long-run economic growth. Tax and budget policy can boost economic growth, particularly by cutting tax rates on labor and capital and reducing the deficit. Of course, the promotion of long-run growth can conflict with other goals... [Snip]

The Death of Money
American Magazine, by James Rickards    Original Article
Posted By: eagleblurst- 4/9/2014 10:13:29 AM     Post Reply
Few Americans in our time recall that the dollar nearly ceased to function as the world’s reserve currency in 1978. That year the Federal Reserve dollar index declined to a distressingly low level, and the U.S. Treasury was forced to issue government bonds denominated in Swiss francs. Foreign creditors no longer trusted the U.S. dollar as a store of value. The dollar was losing purchasing power, dropping by half from 1977 to 1981; U.S. inflation was over 50 percent during those five years. Starting in 1979, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had little choice but to mobilize its resources… [Snip]

LNG Exports: ´A Good-Faith Test´

The heat is on. The environmental Left is on the attack, and the target now is not ExxonMobil, or the Kochs, or the Keystone XL pipeline, or fossil fuels, or the efforts of the world’s desperately poor to escape grinding poverty, or plastics, or indoor plumbing, or those who fail to worship Gaia, or any of the other usual suspects. Instead, it is President Obama, urged last month in an open letter by 16 environmental groups to prevent the exportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and to make a commitment to keep “most of our nation’s fossil fuel reserves

Congress Should Promote Charter Schools
American Magazine, by Arnold Kling    Original Article
Posted By: eagleblurst- 4/7/2014 9:50:38 AM     Post Reply
There is bipartisan agreement that the American economy needs entrepreneurship. There is bipartisan agreement that our education system could stand some improvement. Charter schools are a development that addresses both of these needs. Entrepreneurs have been putting energy and innovation into the charter school effort, and we are starting to see positive results. Now is the time for Congress to provide funding to states to set up the apparatus needed to facilitate further charter school growth.

Crowdfunders´ Losing Deal

Oculus Rift, a startup making virtual-reality headsets, sold to Facebook last week for $2 billion. Less than two years ago, the company got its start by raising nearly $2.5 million on Kickstarter, the five-year-old crowdfunding site that recently reached $1 billion in total funds raised. Raising $2 million in financing and quickly selling a company for $2 billion is an unusual success. Why, then, are those who initially backed Oculus Rift on Kickstarter so up in arms?

The Obama administration has been punting a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline for five years now, and there’s no sign the president’s kicking leg is getting tired. At various junctures in this endless drama, the White House has effectively overruled or ignored its own State Department, which in 2011 concluded that the pipeline extension poses “no significant impacts” on the environment and in 2014 basically shot down all of the supposed drawbacks. The White House response to this most recent green light was to keep the car in neutral, warning that Keystone XL will go forward... [Snip]

Asian Americans Resist Racial Preferences
American Magazine, by Abigail Thernstrom    Original Article
Posted By: eagleblurst- 3/31/2014 9:15:21 AM     Post Reply
What a hash the Supreme Court has consistently made in decisions involving race. The latest example is Fisher v. University of Texas, Austin. The case, which involved affirmative action in higher education, sat in the Supreme Court docket for an unusual nine months last year, at the end of which the Court issued an opinion that did almost nothing to advance the decades-long debate over racial preferences. It stamped its foot and said judges must more rigorously scrutinize racial sorting — admissions determined in part on the basis of racial or ethnic identity. [Snip]

Hoping for China´s Success
American Magazine, by Vaclav Smil    Original Article
Posted By: eagleblurst- 3/28/2014 9:35:21 AM     Post Reply
There is always some reason for the West to worry about China. How far will Chinese companies go to acquire major Western businesses? Do the Chinese have too much influence in too many African economies? Why do they provocatively claim sovereignty over entire seas? What are their strategic intentions after years of large spending increases on their military? In these cases, and many others, the best possible outcome for the rest of the world might be if things did not go entirely China’s way, and if the Chinese had to lower their ambitions. But there is one concern where everybody should wish to see China successful:

A National Minimum Wage Is a Bad Fit
for Low-Cost Communities
American Magazine, by Andrew Biggs and Mark J. Perry    Original Article
Posted By: eagleblurst- 3/26/2014 12:19:37 PM     Post Reply
Progressives are practically united in supporting periodic increases in the national minimum wage. The only disagreement is by how much: some, like President Obama and his fellow Democrats, propose raising the national minimum wage by almost 40 percent over the next few years to $10.10 per hour and indexing it to inflation thereafter; others favor almost doubling the current minimum wage to a so-called “living wage” of $15 per hour or more. But note that we call it the national minimum wage. It’s a federally mandated minimum wage that applies universally across the country... [Snip]

The Proper Size of Government

President Obama has frequently cited the seemingly intractable debate about the size of government currently consuming the political class as his primary obstacle to getting major reforms through a divided Congress. For example, he recently said: For several years now, this town has been consumed by a rancorous argument over the proper size of the federal government. It´s an important debate — one that dates back to our very founding. But when that debate prevents us from carrying out even the most basic functions of our democracy... [Snip]

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

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)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
