05-13 Round-Up

President Obama Job Approval

"Fully 73% say they approve of requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status if police ask for them." "Two-thirds (67%) approve of allowing police to detain anyone who cannot verify their legal status, while 62% approve of allowing police to question people they think may be in the country illegally."

Duncan, Wamp say public has right to TVA's information And I say he's right. Interestingly, the picture the newspaper chose to run makes Rep Duncan look vampire-ish.

Does the Media Care About Unemployment?

Could Arizona be ahead of the curve? A Downside of Racial Awareness?
Here is what he found:

Upper-division area and ethnic studies students rated Climate of Respect for Personal Beliefs at 4.16. Humanities and social science students gave it a substantially higher 4.80, and science, engineering, math, and business students rated it even higher at 5.05. Obviously, field of study affected scores.
Chatman attributes the low climate scores in area and ethnic studies precisely to the instruction students receive in those classes. "Students in area and ethnic studies should have learned to recognize prejudicial communication and should be more sensitive to communication that might be prejudicial," he writes. Whereas a math student might hear a remark and think nothing of it, an African American Studies student might discern prejudice and stereotyping. Does this mean that students in area and ethnic studies are more perceptive and accurate in their assessment of campus climate, or have they acquired in their classes a "warped lens" (Chatman's term) that sees social life in overdone racial categories? Chatman even draws a logical possibility that might appall area and ethnic studies instruction, that is, that the climate in those fields is a lot worse than it is in engineering classes and labs. One wonders how area and ethnic studies professors would feel if they were ordered to undergo diversity sensitivity sessions themselves to try to straighten out their problems.

Shocking News! Americans want lower spending, not higher taxes

Ironically, now I feel like a cigarette. State to force stores to post graphic signs vs. smoking

Henry Gates Deflates the Reparations Balloon. Gates famously played the race card when arrested by a white cop in Cambridge, Massachusetts. And yet his new book has dropped like a bomb on those who’ve made careers out of racial complaints.

Because why would New York City need funds to defend itself from terrorist attacks? DHS cuts New York funds as President Obama visits It's this kind of thinking that leads me to believe that the Ivy League is VERY over-rated.
