11/29   Michelle Malkin has collected youtube profiles/images of questioners
        from last night's debate.  Several of the questioners are openly
        supporting Democrat candidates.  Don't bother telling me how much you
        hate Malkin.  Look at the evidence presented about how CNN is
        incompetent. (

7/25    He's right.
        "Without going into all the specifics, I think we are now moving into
        a situation where the White House, on various fronts, is openly
        ignoring the constitution, acting as though not just the law but the
        constitution itself, which is the fundamental law from which all the
        statutes gain their force and legitimacy, doesn't apply to them.

5/3     Anyone watch the Republican debate? Only Ron Paul sounds like a real
        conservative (besides the debatable abortion stuff). The rest just
        toe the standard R line. I never heard of him before. He seems like
        one of the few who actually stands by clear principles, even if I
        don't agree with them all.
        \_ It's interesting that he hasn't gotten anywhere near as much\

3/22    I'm a foreigner and new to the concept of the legislative branch.
        If both the executive and the congress are controlled by
        pro-Life Republicans, why don't the congress & Bush pass an
        anti-abortion law? Why do you guys need the judiciary branch to
        interpret what is legal and what is not when the other 2 branches
        can create the law?

2/24    S.D. legislature passes near total abortion ban - no exception for
        rape or incest.
        \_ Which is consistent at least.  If you believe abortion is killing a
           human life, why should those be exceptions?

10/12   Bush: "Miers is qualified because she's an evangelical Christian!"
        Huh?  Since when is the Supreme Court our council of Mullahs?
        \_ Wah?  URL please.
              \_ What you said and what that article said are not the same.
                 I don't like Miers either but you don't need to make stuff up

Many universities have restricted or eliminated all speech that might possibly be interpreted as offensive to members of victim groups. An organization exists, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, headed by two distinguished civil libertarians, Harvey Silverglate and Alan Charles Kors, whose primary function is to defend students and professors who are persecuted by university administrators for exercising their constitutional right to free speech. The ability of privileged victim groups to censure the speech of the majority is enhanced by various state laws passed by white legislators and enforced by white district attorneys. Janice Barton was arrested and spent time in jail for a hate crime. Another recent case comes from Idaho, where a white woman, Kim Rae, was physically assaulted by a black male. The woman's screams brought her white husband to the scene. These were "warm-up" cases involving ordinary people without powerful positions or a base of public support. Trent Lott, however, has a strong base in his home state. He was forced to resign that position because blacks chose to be offended by their interpretation of his offhand remark about states rights at a birthday party for Strom Thurmond. As the Lott imbroglio unfolded, white people watched with trepidation the dissolution of their First Amendment rights and the onset of thought control. Many knew instinctively that the difficulty in which Lott found himself was not really about him, but about the power of "preferred minorities" to censure white people and destroy their careers. This power will be used, not only to curb hateful speech but also to censor uncomfortable truths. The result will be to establish deference by the majority to the minority, just as under an aristocratic system. Neither the Fourth Estate nor Academia will escape these strictures. Yet, for 37 years we have watched the creation of a class of preferred people, a new aristocracy. And now they have been given the power to shut the rest of us up. By delivering this power to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, President Bush, the Republican Party and the gaggle of white neo-conservative pundits have placed the Supreme Court in an untenable position. The Court has before it a case on the constitutionality of racial quotas - that is, unequal treatment of people on the basis of race. Racial quotas are used by university administrators to admit "preferred minorities" who cannot meet the standards demanded of white applicants. It has become commonplace for better-qualified whites to be turned away to create spaces for blacks. Having been branded "Republican" by racial minorities and Democrats for its ruling on the Florida vote in the last presidential election, the justices know the risks to their own credibility, and that of the Republican Party, if they rule against minority privilege. Wade had given women squatters' rights in abortion, the Court will be sorely tempted to argue that 37 years of minority privileges have given preferred minorities squatters' rights in affirmative action. The various Republican opportunists, who saw in Lott's discomfiture a chance to move up in leadership position, reach out to minorities or replace Lott with someone more friendly to the military-police state, could not see beyond their immediate personal goals. Has their lack of wisdom cost white Americans the protection of the First and 14th Amendments? Roberts' latest book, "The Tyranny of Good Intentions," has been published by Prima Publishers.
