Ode to Pork
My only friend in Doha, Qatar has an article published on ChronWatch. In it he blatantly tells what a "pig" he is!!! Funny, Doc. But that loud slam you hear may be your "arteries slamming shut." [quote courtesy of Chuck Myguts]
On Affirmative Action
David Sims at Clubbeaux gives his in depth analysis of one side of Affirmative Action in this essay. It's an interesting treatise. Please go read it now. And if you don't normally follow a blog into the Comments, do so in this case. Here's one, for example:
"As to the subject of the post: one thing is overlooked--- many of the liberals who gush such unrealistic, counterproductive tripe at the underclass do so because they themselves have not had to deal with reality in decades, if ever. Consider that many of our worst liberal politicians never held a job outside Washington in their lives. Nor will their children: e.g., the Kennedy Clan.
"Consider that Hollywood--nesting ground of the Breast Beating Limousine Liberal-- is packed full of people who have been coddled and cosseted and adored from afar for decades, and who have subsequently lost touch with reality.
"Consider that many of the powerful and famous, or at least notorious, have managed to accumulate obscene wealth and power while cheating, lying, stealing, double-dealing and backstabbing, and yet even when caught red handed flouting the law of the land, have rarely been made to pay the piper. An endless parade of starlets, musicians, politicians, sports figures, rappers, actors and friends-of-same who are caught doing drugs, soliciting prostitutes, committing perjury, cheating on their taxes, even committing rape and murder... and getting a slap on the wrist.
"Why shouldn't the underclass believe that's the route to fame and power and wealth? And why shouldn't the liberals who *do* such things think the same?
After all, it worked for them...."
