Blue State Blues: When You Bare Your Breasts to Protest ISIS, We’ll Care

This week, the marauding terrorist hordes of the so-called Islamic State (or ISIS, or ISIL) captured the central Syrian city of Palmyra, plunging its citizens into despair and threatening priceless historic sites that are the common historic heritage of humanity. While the women of Palmyra await their fate–which, in other ISIS-held regions, has included child sex slavery and worse–the young women of San Diego bared their breasts to protest unequal treatment of the male and female nipple.

Compulsion vs. Opportunity in the War on Poverty

Let me propose an idea for both sides in the poverty debate to consider: the true significance of work is not that it brings “dignity” to the poor, because they don’t consider themselves undignified now, and the welfare state goes to great lengths to reinforce that sense of entitlement instead of humbly accepting temporary charity.

Gallup: Americans ‘Greatly Overestimate’ Percentage of Gays, Lesbians in U.S.

According to the poll, Americans estimate on average that 23 percent of their fellow citizens are gay or lesbian. The National Health Interview Survey, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – a highly definitive study from 2013 – found that fewer than 3 percent of respondents identified themselves as gay, lesbian, or bisexual, and only 1.6 percent self-identified as gay or lesbian.

Hillary Clinton: the Perfect Political Organism

The ultimate political organism doesn’t have to worry about winning elections, and is only modestly concerned about the possibility of losing one. American politics is no longer a question of what the people support, but what we can marshal the combined willpower to stop.
