The real sea change
should occur on campus

Recently, several liberal professors visited Gov. Rick Scott to brief him on the “closed” science of global warming. Never mind that many scientists will tell you that science is never closed or settled. These professors — like many in the media, academia and in Hollywood — will continue to scream the sky is falling until they force more polluters out of business and cause the loss of more American jobs. Should you be one of those scientists who dares to question global warming, you stand the chance — like Galileo and Copernicus when they went against the settled science of

Why are liberal academics so afraid of debating issues using fact-based, logical arguments?

When will there be an open, public, transparent, moderated debate on the true scientific facts regarding global warming?

When will liberal academics begin to objectively report the scientific facts separate from the political hype on MANY topics?

A fact-based debate using logical arguments is a healthy way to seek truth. Why are academics and liberals so afraid to participate?

Because, #1, today´s liberals are driven by ideology and emotion rather than objective thought.

Global warming is a scam and a leftist religion- facts don´t matter.
Australia has now said the scientists were lying about the data being " hottest on record"
Students are being told these lies by their profs - just like the pro Palestinian LIES on campuses.
Rachel Corrie and James Foley may have been victims of this anti- American and Anti- Israeli propaganda - and paid for it with their lives.

FTA: ~~That said, there is one place where these liberal professors can have an immediate impact and right some wrongs in their own field. They could call on their fellow liberal colleagues across the nation to end the blatant discrimination against conservative professors and the intimidation of conservative students.

One of the pillars of the liberal movement on college and university campuses is diversity. Unfortunately, such diversity usually stops when it comes to hiring those who exhibit conservative or even Christian backgrounds. Discrimination against conservatives flies in the face of academic responsibility, honesty and liberty.

Thanks for posting!

Secret Service woes show hiring
should be based on qualifications
Tampa Tribune, by Douglas MacKinnon    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 10/4/2014 9:47:52 AM     Post Reply
Thanks to Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” oppressive white males — at least momentarily before we are shouted down — are allowed to touch upon the ultra-politically correct subject of hiring based on diversity as opposed to qualifications. As the incompetence of Julia Pierson, who just resigned in disgrace as head of the U.S. Secret Service, became more evident, Brzezinski dared to wonder if political correctness instead of qualifications inserted Pierson into that position and then kept her there in the face of mounting controversies. Brzezinski told her male panelists she was openly speculating on the subject

A Missouri doctor made news the other day by checking in at the airport wearing a Hazmat suit to dramatize his belief that the CDC is “lying” about the dangers of Ebola by downplaying it. (Snip) Mobley is saying that’s true but if you keep playing Russian Roulette long enough you’ll eventually hit upon a loaded chamber. Spin the wheel enough times and eventually Ebola gets lucky. The more Ebola patients there are worldwide the more times you spin the wheel. Dr. Mobley is saying that if the disease keeps exploding in West Africa the wheel will get spun too

Pinellas schools to return 28 M16 rifles

ST. PETERSBURG — After a firestorm of questions from parents and school board members, the Pinellas County school district’s internal police force will return 28 military surplus M16 assault rifles it purchased. Schools Police Chief Rick Stelljes sent a letter Monday to Superintendent Michael Grego asking him to return the weapons, purchased two months ago through the Department of Defense 1033 Program. School Board Chairwoman Carol Cook said the board didn’t know the guns had been purchased until it was reported by the media. “It was a misstep, for sure,” Cook said. Stelljes and Grego began looking into the

CALUMET, Okla. — A decade ago, states offered wind-energy developers an open-armed embrace, envisioning a bright future for an industry that would offer cheap electricity, new jobs and steady income for large landowners, especially in rural areas with few other economic prospects. To ensure the opportunity didn´t slip away, lawmakers promised little or no regulation and generous tax breaks. But now that wind turbines stand tall across many parts of the nation´s windy heartland, some leaders in Oklahoma and other states fear their efforts succeeded too well, attracting an industry that gobbles up huge subsidies,

Doctors’ silent protest against politicians

Doctors in Florida and across the country are protesting against the government’s intrusion into health care, but we aren’t voicing our concerns using bullhorns and pickets. Instead, many of the state’s 50,000 physicians are protesting silently through their practice decisions. Having graduated from medical school 28 years ago, I have witnessed firsthand the transformation of our country’s health care system. Then, medical practice focused more on the deeply personal decisions made between doctor and patient. Today, bureaucrats are inserting themselves ever deeper into every aspect of health care. Physicians across the country are responding to this evolution — and most

The Trouble with Armor

There’s a famous picture from the Liberian civil war showing a militiaman geared up with “body armor”. The militiaman’s body armor is actually a flotation device or life jacket. But it sort of looks like body armor and he may think it’s going to work. It may give him some psychological protection, but the life jacket is of doubtful ballistic worth. The proof of any defensive system is whether it actually works. In the case of body armor, it is whether the gear stops projectiles of a certain type. In the case of defenses against disease, the test is whether

For the last few years, the blood sport for the leadership of the Democrat Party, much of the mainstream media and a never-ending procession of wealthy liberal activists has been the character assassination of the Koch brothers. They have beaten that drum for so long and with such irrational anger that its sound has become nothing more than white noise for most of the voting public. Ironically, one of those who has joined in this symphony of vilification against the billionaire Koch brothers is a fellow billionaire from California who made his massive wealth as the head of a hedge

Ebola in America

News that Ebola has arrived in the United States from Liberia and that many people may have already been exposed to the disease was yet one more reminder that “they” cannot completely protect everyone. There was always the chance it would arrive. By plane, or over open border — but somewhow. The spread of the disease has been modeled by the CDC as a Markov chain which measures the probability of going from one state to the other. There was always a joint probability that someone from an Ebola zone could make their way across a series of paths to

According to Robert Sczcerba, a health technology venture capitalist and former director of life sciences at Lockheed Martin, the greatest health technology danger is the cacophony of beeps that attend medical devices in every hospital. Because if everything is a priority then nothing is. (Snip) The Secret Service also had an alarm system when intruder Omar Gonzalez jumped the White House fence and made it into the East Room. It played little part in the proceedings because it was muted at the request of an usher. “An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert

When I read a recent Associated Press headline and the accompanying story, I realized I was living in an alternate universe. A universe where respect for police and the highly dangerous, selfless and thankless job we ask them to perform — be it in Tampa or elsewhere — is a pillar of civilized society. A universe of thoughts, beliefs and values that are now being perverted by rhetorical ambulance chasers in pursuit of populist glory. The headline read: “Obama Says Mistrust of Police Corroding America.” Then, the AP went on to report, the president believes the “widespread mistrust of law

TAMPA — No one can seem to remember the exact year Ku Klux Klan members donned white caps and stood in protest at opening night of the Tampa International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. Was it 1990? 1992? “It was considered normal,” said Ed Lally, vice president of the festival board, who has attended every year since the festival started in 1989. “We expected it to happen sooner or later, so it didn’t stand out even then.” Today, though, normal has changed. The festival kicks off its 25th year at 6 p.m. Friday with a street party at Tampa Theatre

Pushing a boulder up the side of a mountain would have seemed like a good cardio workout for Sisyphus compared to the effort it takes to get voters to approve a tax increase these days. When that includes funding for something spelled r-a-i-l, well, we talk about something with a more realistic chance of happening — say, an invasion of little green body-snatchers from Mars. Yet, that is the task supporters of Greenlight Pinellas have undertaken. They hope a cynical, soured electorate will decide it’s worth paying an extra penny on the county’s sales tax in order to address current

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
