Seems like this discussion revolves soley around college-educated women only. Maybe Marx was right.
As per previous comments, I think most people here would be shocked and bewildered by the massive amount of Leftist indoctrination that goes on in our school system. We conservatives have lost this war and it's only a matter of time before this disparity makes socialism a sure thing in this country. A student once complained to me about my criticisms of the Left in my class (she thought I was too hostile to her belief system). When I asked her what she planned to do, she indicated she wanted to teach kindergarten. Trust me when I say that indoctrination starts at age 5. I told her that she now has an inkling of what most conservative college students are being subjected in most all of their classes.
As someone who has looked at the UFO phenomena for more than two decades, I acknowledge that there is obviously no definitive proof. However, there are aspects of this phenomena that deserve much more than the short shrift it has been given in these comments. Besides, how can there possibly be "decisive" assertions in the negative on intelligent extra-terrestrial life? What nonsense. Let us have the humility to admit that we just don't know.
Yawn. I stopped watching after six minutes. Life is too short.
Well, the ZH viewpoints and information are a lot more realistic than the government mouthpiece called CNBC.

I have to agree with the many folks here who suggested "Breaker Morant." It addresses many subtle issues and is, in many ways, a Vietnam film. Plus it has some great, crackling combat scenes. It brings to mind Robert E. Lee's words at Fredricksburg in 1862: "It is well that war is so terrible, lest we grow too fond of it."
I don't think we're going to have to wait too long for the inevitable crash of the Fed's current "command economy."
I plan on showing this to all of my econ classes. There's more to macroeconomics than short term business cycle theory.
First, former economist Paul Krugman. Now this guy. I suppose the economics prize has joined the peace prize in terms of irrelevancy.
Those carrying the banner of Social Justice just don't seem able to connect the dots between their policies and the demise of California. Something like 40% of all state income taxes are paid by less than 350,000 taxpayers (1% of the population). It would be supremely ironic (not to mention a great lesson in economics) if higher taxes on the rich caused an exodus that lowered overall tax revenues. I just want to sell my house and get the hell out of here before that happens.
At my college, all is based on union rules/procedures without a hint of meritocracy. We have instructors that are literally political "appointees," obtaining teaching positions that were created and filled by decree with no opportunities for anyone else to compete. A number of instructors rage against the evils of competition (which I suspect is motivated by their blind hatred of markets and Capitalism). I wonder how they bring themselves to assign student grades.
Lots of ammo in this thread. Thanks all.
NRA Life member, I have three 45s including a Les Baer (my favorite), a 22 Ruger, a Browning 9mm Hi-Power, a couple of rifles, and a 12 gauge pump home defense shotgun (just the racking sound should make any bad guys leave the house immediately). I'd buy more guns but I live in California. Since I may move to Nevada, or Idaho, or New Mexico, I will abstain from buying now so I can buy guns later not subject to any idiot California restrictions.
Having read the book myself, at a minimum it would make a terrifically scary science fiction movie.
Scott Reusser: While you're there you can provide some details about the Brooklyn Bridge Incident, in which Margaret Thatcher, Javier Perez de Cuellar, and others were part of a motorcade which mysteriously stalled out and experienced "missing time" during a famous UFO abduction.
Unless you're part of the cover-up.

Can anyone direct me as to where I might find Hayek's "The Atavism of Social Justice" referred by Daniel Frank in an earlier comment? It would be much appreciated.
Mandatory appliance efficiency standards are not so much about energy savings but rather are about conditioning citizens to wearing the "yoke." After all, the government knows better and to paraphrase Orwell - "Coercion is Liberty."
