The Newt Gingrich campaign’s donor list is up for rent — and I’m only half joking when I say we progressives should start raising funds to use it for one big, epic practical joke. How much would you pay to create shame and indignity among all his funders?
I love reading about how anarchists, who endorse government so small it is non-existent, are left-wing. Just kidding! It’s infuriating.
is it a private school? or a religious org? i bet it is, and they can do whatever they want.
Yes, it’s both a private school and a religious institution. I don’t know whether or not her firing would hold up under legal scrutiny. On one hand, maybe federal and state employment laws apply to the school. On the other hand, maybe they don’t for some reason.
But that’s not really the point. The point is that her getting fired for being pregnant is wrong. If Ms. Samford were male, would she have lost her job for being an expecting father without being married? Does anyone think, for even a moment, that the school’s policy is equitably applied across genders? Furthermore, Ms. Samford’s right to be pregnant trumps the school’s [apparent] right to impose their arbitrary morals onto her body. I guess that while the religious Right likes babies, they hate unwed mothers. Just because something is or may be legal doesn’t mean it’s right.
“I think it should be Sarah Palin,” McCain said on CBS as he broke into laughter, when asked about Palin’s suggestion Tuesday night that the eventual presidential nominee should “go rogue” in their VP selection.
Asked by the laughing hosts of “This Morning” whether he had spoken to Palin about this, the Arizona senator said, “No, I haven’t.”
On one hand, credible threats of terrorism, like today’s, are sometimes newsworthy and merit coverage.
On the other, terrorism is essentially a publicity stunt. The primary channel that terrorists use to get their threats of violence, intimidation, and destruction to the masses is the mass media — and coverage of “terrorist threats” give terrorists exactly what they’re after. The goal of terrorism is not necessarily to kill. It is to make people fearful en masse, and achieve some cultural or behavioral change in doing so.
I guess the way to eliminate terrorism would be to censor the media from reporting on it.
