THE NEVER-ENDING STORY | 2005-01-29

The leftist actually made a conservative point in saying, "On being a racist, we're all inherently and subconsciously racist deep down. Don't you think?"

What he is saying here is that what is called "racism" is a fixed part of human nature, in other words, is normal.

The very goal of the left is to change human nature, which shows that the left is anti-human.

The social sciences have created an enormous power base in the universities by fighting "problems" which are not problems at all, but merely human nature.

A wise sage once said that problems, by definition, have solutions. If something doesn't have a solution, then it isn't a problem.

Since there is no solution to the "problems" of human nature, any attempt to create one is by definition inhuman.

Of course, phony, insolvable "problems" lead to unlimited budgets, campaigns, "War on [fill in the blank]" and opportunities for the worst psychopaths to get on their soapboxes. The social sciences get a blank check for whatever idiocy they can come up with. Vague words like "racism" are just weapons they can use to beat submission out of cowering students and everyone who dares oppose them.

Now do you see why Political Correctness is nothing less than tyranny?

HOW DID O'REILLY GET SO SCREWED UP? | 2003-05-10

It took a long, long time for the alcohol and drug recovery experts to admit that alcoholism is hereditary. Social sciences hate heredity, since what they sell is environment.

After all, the more important heredity is, the less education alone can save the world. The more important heredity is the less psychology can change the world. The more important heredity is, the less sociology determines the future of the world.

Stalin killed most of his geneticists for saying heredity was important. Leftism hates heredity because they want to change the world by their own programs. The more heredity matters, the less leftists can change the world.

O'Reilly was a school teacher. He was raised on education courses that told him that heredity couldn't matter. So he told the audience that nobody can be born with more susceptibility to alcohol than anybody else.

When identical twins are adopted into different families at birth, they not only tend to commit the same number of crimes, they commit them at the same age and they tend to be the same crimes. That is because identical twins have the same genes no matter who adopts them.

O'Reilly stated flatly that genes don't make people do anything. That is a good line for an education major. That is a good line to make you respectable to liberals. But it makes no sense at all.

O'Reilly is fun to watch and he has guts. But always remember that the only education he ever had was education courses, and, on some issues, he never grew out of it.

That is why O'Reilly, who has common sense on any other issue, is such a nut-case integrationist.

It is also the reason he is allowed on national television.

A MAN WITH A MEMORY LOOKS AT THE JEFFORDS DEFECTION | 2001-05-25

On March 31, 2001, in REAL HISTORY IS STILL NEWS TO SENATE WIMPS, I pointed out that an evenly split Senate was not a new thing.

I have been pointing out for months now that the same situation existed in 1953, with a 48-48 Democrat-Republican split in the Senate. In 1953, as in 2001, the Republican Vice President gave the Republicans the Senate majority with his right to break a tie vote in that body.

In 1953, the Republicans took over the full powers of the majority party. By forgetting this precedent, Republican Senate wimps were able to "share power" with the Democrats in 2001.

Liberal media did not mention it because it gave Republican Senate wimps an excuse to give the Democrats extra power. But no conservative has mentioned it either!

Now that moderate Senator Jeffords of Vermont is going to give the Democrats a majority by voting with them, this piece of history begins to shout for recognition, BECAUSE EXACTLY THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO THE 1953 REPUBLICAN MAJORITY!

In 1955, as in 1953, 48 Democrats and 48 Republicans had been elected to the Senate. But liberal Republican Wayne Morse gave the Democrats the Senate majority in 1955 by voting with them, just as Jeffords is doing today.

Republicans don't like discussing this because it makes an obvious point. Republicans are always saying that they have to cater to liberals in order to form a majority coalition. But in the real world, after all the weakening of principles has been done to get a few liberal Republicans, they leave you when it counts.

I covered the same ground, dealing with a similar subject, on October 14, 2000, in ONCE AGAIN - REPUBLICANS NEVER WIN WITH MINORITY VOTES.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE POLITICALLY CORRECT TWILIGHT ZONE | 2002-03-23

Years ago there was a television show instructing people on how to avoid being a crime victim. Most of it was common sense advice, like having your keys in your hand when you approach your car alone, walking where there is light, and so forth.

In other words, it was all simple, real-world stuff.

Then came the Twilight Zone of Political Correctness. They asked if you should get on an elevator at night that is full of "minorities."

No problem, said the film. People of every race and color and creed commit crimes, so you are just as safe in an elevator full of black folks or Puerto Ricans as with well-dressed white Americans.

No one who was that stupid would survive in the real world. But that is the logic on which our whole society is built. The world of liberalism and Political Correctness is never real, it never works, but we try to build a society on it.

So in the Politically Correct Bizarro World, those well-dressed whites from Fox who looked like they belonged should have been checked just as closely as any red-eyed Arab.

We all know that will never happen in a sane world. But we also insist that Our Great Principle of Equality says you have to strip-search grandma. See WOL Worldview for December 29, 2001

YOU'VE EITHER GOT TO DISCRIMINATE OR STRIP-SEARCH GRANDMA.
