Ok, skipping the porn issue, which I think would easily fit in a sexual harassment or misconduct rule somewhere, if they really wanted to do anything about it. Why does this guy have 6 extra hours at work to watch porn? What is his job? If he has that much time to waste each day, what are we paying him for? It would seem a pretty big waste of money. How much time each year is lost to these workers not working? If this one has that much time for porn, how much time do his co-workers have for other personal visits, shopping online, being on the phone, browsing the internet…

I never had a problem with Michael Sam, until now that is. He was a good college player who just didn’t have the measurables and skillset NFL teams look for in an early pick. Until recently he didn’t get too self-obsessed and realized he’s one of hundreds of bubble players who has a chance to be a journeyman player, maybe a solid scout team player, but not a high quality NFL player. Now that he is effectively calling teams bigoted I see no need for said NFL teams to ever want to even let him run on the practice squad. Lots of players take their draft check and make it work for the first year if they get cut and spend the whole year training so they come back stronger, faster and more knowledgable in year 2. Even if he’s doing that, he has now fired warning shots that if he doesn’t get his way he’s going to scream about biasness. Until these comments, I think he had a shot at an NFL career, but now he will be lucky if the Arena league gives him a call.

@nycgirl i took the time, read the article, researched some of the author’s sources…oh, by the way, not at all a conflict of interest to have a civil rights attorney, criticize the police department. researching the sources he used, i noticed all of his sources that weren’t pure statistics were notable for their own civil rights ideology which often comes in conflict with the police. not that the police actually did anything wrong, just people who make a living when police do make mistakes or commit crimes, again no conflict of interest. and even based on that, the author draws the most extreme conclusions from the statistics and assumes the problem is bigger than reported, because, reasons. nycgirl, if that is your idea of MORE reliable, than you go in with an expectation that those who agree with your idea are more honest. a dangerous assumption to either side. but don’t criticize one opinion article with another opinion article, just because one is an idea you support and the other isn’t it’s intellectually dishonest. i’m not saying who is right, because the grand jury made it’s decision and agree or not, it’s the rule of law and either you support that or you don’t, in this instance there is no middle ground, disagree, but there is no justification to riot for either side.

Based on the physical evidence, how would you say it’s reasonable to indict the officer? If it’s because of race, the system isn’t the problem.
 November 25, 2014 at 7:49pm
Then why don’t more blacks choose to become officers and police their own neighborhood? You can’t blame the composition of a police force on the police if certain races or genders don’t apply to become officers. Also, are you insinuating that all white police are inherently racist?

This is what Israel deals with constantly, don’t pay attention to what WE do or say, pay attention to how we are victims. What we do, what we say doesn’t matter… In Israel this isn’t a story it’s daily life. Sad, but true.

I am all about tolerance…that being said, when you promote certain ideal and attempt to “normalize” them, you run this risk. Once a limited group of people whom many disagree with are normalized, those who are just on the other side of them have the same argument. It becomes a slope that gets steeper with each step, the problem is…homosexuality isn’t evil, but it’s not “normal” biologically it is actually a reason for the end of that genetic line(think about it, how many gay pandas get to reproduce in nature? my point) now i’m not homophobic, I have a sister who is homosexual and love her and accept her, but I don’t support marriage rights for her, because that legitimizes the behavior and I worry about pedophiles and polygamists being the next in line. if we say one deviation is acceptable how do we argue against other deviations. It’s sad, but the more you push the limits of what the mass culture finds acceptable, the more tainted the culture becomes and the less say it has on what is or isn’t acceptable.
"I have a sister who is homosexual and love her and accept her, but I don’t support marriage rights for her, because that legitimizes the behavior and I worry about pedophiles..."
To confirm: you think that if your sister can marry a woman, then the next step is pedophilia?
To say it clearer: is your sister a pedophile? Because that is how your comment comes across.
Let's try this another way. In your words: " if we say one deviation is acceptable how do we argue against other deviations"
Do you accept divorce? Why not? Divorce among us Christians is extremely contradicting the will of God Himself. What God has joined together, let no one separate?
What about remarriage? Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her?
These are extreme deviations from (Biblical) morality. To be fair, you may not be a Christian and do not believe in God, Christ, or the Bible. But the overwhelming majority (75%+) of the country does. How can you allow divorce and remarriage to stand, yet think that your sister is spawning pedophilia?
You are, quite simply, a hypocrite. Homosexual marriage is NOT recognized by God... but God's definition of marriage doesn't match our legal definition now, either. Why is your sister the spawn of pedophilia because of her "deviation," but divorcees are not?
You have no answer, because your view is not from the Bible.

I know how to fix this, granted it should be the last thought of someone who is even a reasonable or decent human being, but make it a felony. Intentional recording of a criminal act without rendering aid or notifying authorities. Posting, sharing or sending of said records as a separate felony. You do this, people will stop recording and help, because if four people are recording, it’s possible to catch them on other videos.

Do you know what I will never understand…if Progressivism is the ideology of science and progress, why do they support ideas that are at there base anti-scientific? Abortion, is a psychological deficiency in maternal instinct. The perpetuation of such endangers the human species. Sounds very dangeros from a scientific perspective to me. Same thing with homosexuality, particularly in regards to reproduction. If children are born from at least one homosexual parent(view based on genetic cause) there is a danger to the human species being able to reproduce without technology. Or raising kids in homes with homosexual parents(choice or environmental cause), leading to reproductive problems. From a scientific point of view these are both behaviors that science says are dangerous for a species to promote or even accept. I will never understand…

I see things like this and all I see is a company that is letting go of it’s best asset. Clothing stores are easy to replace. The only reason people recognize Men’s warehouse is because Zimmer sold it for years. People are going to remember that first you fired him, then you used his image anyways. If they go to someone else, people are going to be mad. It’s a lose/lose for MW. If anything, do this quietly, make it small and keep it down. MW did this in the worst possible way. People like Zimmer and when you hurt someone people like, they take it out on you.

If they have footage, it’s actually, not that hard to get these officers in trouble. They lied during a police investigation. Shook the fence or didn’t. It becomes simple, obstruction of justice, the officers lied to investigating officials or falsified reports. Also, why did they even have to shoot the dog? I read nowhere of the dog attacking, and growling isn’t a threat, it’s a response, non-lethal response. LAPD is going to cost more taxpayer money to the family.

Those residents of Colorado who actually find this a tragedy can do something that will upset people in this town…petition your school district to boycott sports with them. Small towns thrive on high school sports, as evidenced by the way they treated someone who threatened the wrestling team(seriously, it’s wrestling, and I live in Iowa… Wrestling?!). One year of no sports and this community will learn what pain they have caused. It’s not totally fair to those kids who weren’t in on the piling on, but it’s the parents who will suffer most. If you are a parent and your kids are unhappy, you are that much more unhappy then they are. No football, baseball, volleyball, wrestling, golf, track, basketball, cheerleading, etc. I say go the whole 9 yards and don’t do music/band contests with them either, any other extra curricular with the city, just drop it. For one year, treat that community the way they treated that kid and his family in their time of need. You want to teach them a lesson, non-violently, one year that’s all it will take. Imagine a small town, without the outlet of school spirit that is so ingrained into the fabric of the community. They will beg, borrow, plead, anything to have it be over. Hold out for one year, and before year two, demand an apology for the boy, before you renew your engagements for that year. After one, they know the pain.

We need to enact common sense legislation to keep out kids safe.
1) We need to enact a balanced budget amendment, our kids cannot be safe, if the value of the dollar is ever devalued by wasteful spending and harmful and debilitating borrowing.
2) Term limits need to be set, 2 Terms for Presidency, 3 Terms for Senators, and 4 terms for House Reps. A life of aristocratic bureaucracy, leads to furthering the purpose of said bureaucracy.
3) Limit laws to 10 pages, and have a 96 hour distribution-to-vote time, so laws are able to be reviewed before being voted, on, any amendments may add only one page and extend the window 48 hours.
4)90-10 rule: 90% of taxes of individuals go to the general fund, the remaining 10% is attributed via selection of the Department on a tax return. The budget passed by the government only attributes the 90% and cannot take into account the 10% attribution revenues.
5) The Budgetary Enforcement Act: Deadlines for Budgets will be enforced. If the government fails to have a budget passed and signed by the deadline set(October 31st for the following years budget) failure results in the suspension of all congressional and executive spending on travel and support staff. Security will remain in place, but executive assistants, historians, photographers, etc. will have suspended pay. All none emergency travel by elected officials will be suspended, until said time, that a budget is fully passed an signed.

One of two things: 1) I wish government accounting practices worked in the real world. That by saying I am going to cut my normal increases in expenses(not actually cutting expenses, but just cutting future increases down) I am saving money. I could claim a new TV(which I don’t need) as an investment not an expenditure. I could borrow from my savings, leave myself an IOU and claim it as a net gain. Or: 2) The government had to use real accounting principles. Yeah, we can have all of the expenses laid out, but at the end of the day, we have three columns. Income, Expenses and the difference. If Income is not equal to or greater than expenses, a plan has to be in place to pay it off, within a finite time period. At this stage it’s not possible. But Let’s make this simple for Political purposes. Yearly budget deficits have to be offset within 3 years if this isn’t met, all spending takes a 10% acrossed the board cut(not in future expenses, but in the previous years amount), and this continues until the budget is balanced. No new long term debt can be added to the deficit. And we get rid of the discretionary vs nondiscretionary limits. All spending, Defense(which would bug the crud out of me), Social Programs, Safety Nets, staffing and Government salaries(including congress, the Executive Branch and the Supreme Court).

Reading the comments, most of you didn’t read the article very well. She is the one who decided to give it up so she could make cash. The dad is trying to give his daughter an opportunity to do something that would be hard and make sure she has an incentive to follow through. This isn’t the daughter being out of hand. This is the daughter doing something I wish a lot of teenagers did. Voluntarily stepping away from social media. Personally, I don’t own a smartphone. Because I know it promotes the incessant need to check it every 5 minutes. Seriously people, how many of you could give up social media for this amount of time? And now that I am thinking about it. How many of you are all about parental rights, and then when this parent does something you don’t agree with, you are all over him? If parents have rights, let them have them. You can’t have it both ways. Nanny states suck because they take away a parents rights to raise their children in the way they choose, and you can’t presume you have the moral authority to “to know better” how he should raise his child. This is a parents choice, respect it or don’t. But, don’t take the “Nanny” role and say you know better. I hope the parent and child both learn and enjoy the experience of this agreement. Good luck.

I have a solution. We can invest a few billion dollars and have every one in Chicago take a 30 year mandatory “geo-relocation” vacation. They effectively move the city of Chicago to about 250 miles north of Kobuk National Park on the Wainwright Inlet(they are used to a big lake, we have to give that to them). The average temperature is significantly lower. Since Chicago citizens have issues when the temperature rises, we can make sure they stay cool. Problem solved. If we really have to, we can build a prison near here as well and keep the violent criminals here to keep them calm. See, as soon as we identify the real problem, we can solve it. It’s not guns, it’s not mental health, it’s not a culture of divisiveness, it’s the HEAT.

I say let them. If they wish to marry as atheists, it is a formal recognition of atheism as a religion. Once that happens, theists of anykind can then sue states for supporting secularism or atheist ideas over other faiths. There is no reason for them to claim that atheism as a non-faith. A faith that there is no god or gods, is still a faith.
Presumably you have faith in your non-belief in Thor?
It takes about as much faith to not believe in a god as it does to believe that I exist.
Add your comments
"A faith that there is no god or gods, is still a faith."
That's good cult-member-level logic. Well done.
I am comfortable with my discomfort with the fact that I don't know how I came to be.
Having taken a long and intense look at religions/belief systems of all kinds (former Christian, 1st degree Freemason (demitted), buddhist, scientologist, looked closely at kabbalah and the occult, etc.) I can tell you that no human knows more than I do. By that, I mean that they simply do not have the answers that I am seeking. They are, by definition, delusional in their belief that they somehow know the answers.
We (the human race) is very young. Much evolving to do. I won't have the answers in my lifetime, and neither will any of you.
Anyone who tells you that they have the answers wants to own you, or needs a "comforting" accomplice in the crime against their own mind.
"I don't know, and I refuse to pretend." is not faith. It's quite the opposite.
I'm not going to let other humans tell me what IS when they don't have a clue themselves.
What I do know is that organized religion is evil on wheels, and I want nothing to do with it.
@RAGNARS said: "Anyone who tells you that they have the answers wants to own you, or needs a “comforting” accomplice in the crime against their own mind.
Then you go on (below) to commit that crime by telling us that you have the answers. LoL
@RAG“I don’t know, and I refuse to pretend.” is not faith. It’s quite the opposite.

I normally don’t like getting into R vs D politics, but the more I see this, the more I am reminded how much of a hodgepodge of ideas progressivism is. Think about it, they want rights, secularism, equality, socialistic programs and gender neutrality. OK, so secularism and gender neutrality don’t go together. From a pure biological point(secularism) men and women have inherently different strengths and functions. Genetically it is a weakness to be able to kill you own offspring or fail to find a suitable mate is a weak genetic line. From a seculars point of view, these people are expendable. Rights and social programs don’t go together, because you can’t have the right to be equal, that is a function of either work or official decree, and if you don’t want to work, it has to be official decree and you don’t have the right to be different. The only thing keeping this group together is that they share a common opposition, that’s it. If they were true to their individual beliefs they would be more against each other than anyone or anything else. It’s crazy to think, but assuming progressives ever did effectively end the opposition, they would have to start a whole new war over the direction of the new supremacy. Progressivism only works when there is an external force, once that’s gone, it self destructs.
i couldn't agree more, whisperingvoice, and this is why the Progressive movement never survives and never will. They take all people and try to sort them into small groups finding small differences between them. After they are all sorted, labeled and identified they try to throw them all back into the same box and give them one uniting characteristic or idea. They give them all, individually, an excuse to be the most pitiful creatures on the earth and entitled to their own special perks because of their "special condition". They sit in the box and scream and squawk until one finally hears the others and they begin to bicker amongst themselves and get jealous of each other as Papa Dictator preaches to the "masses" about each groups woes and hardships. They think each has the best case for the "special" status and they will begin to eat each other and then the group implodes. You can see it coming as we see them splintering over issues especially along moral and religious lines. The powers that be do not care about the "masses" because they are only foot soldiers to their cause and are all expendable, round and round and round we go. So it has been in the past, it shall be in the future. It all just amazes me that it happens over and over again.
May 31, 2012 at 11:21am
My dad didn’t trust me. That was what kept me in line. He didn’t track me, because he knew I was more scared of getting in trouble at home than of being stupid out and about. Get bad grades, I was grounded, no phone, no TV, nada. I do something stupid, grounded and a couple of swats. When I hit HS. Grounding were still there, as was loss of vehicle, and playing is sports. I’d still practice, but I couldn’t play. Having a parent more interested in results than being a friend resolves 90% of behavior issues. Nothing schools can do about it.

I love it when Academics who make money off the public, criticize Capitalism. I wonder what his salary is. If Marx was right, he is a teacher, what is his great contribution, he doesn’t serve the state’s interests. Anthropology is a “perspective” science, it doesn’t serve a great purpose to the general populace.

I'm just curious....How the heck do you impose obesity onto those in poverty? Don't they just have to stop eating so much....which they should be doing anyway....especially since they're in poverty...?
If I had a child at UPenn, one of those elitist Ivy League universities, I would ask the university officials if this isthe best I get for the $57,000/year.
Every one of these Libreal Professors should be lined up and shot like the dogs that they are.
What does any of what he said have to do with teaching anthropology?
"Every one of these Libreal Professors should be lined up and shot like the dogs that they are."
That happens after the commie evolution, the educators are the first to get removed.
What poor Americans is he referring too? The ones who have AC in their homes/apartments, the ones with cell phones, TV's (2each) DVD player and who can get food easily through EBT or the local pantry. Those poor people live better today than my nuclear American family of the 1970s where only my father worked as a city bus driver.
These liberals distort and flat out invent lies to get their agenda moved forward. Nothing in American society matches up with what they put forward as truth. In America...Everyone gets to dance, everyone gets a shot, everyone gets a break and everyone can get ahead if they apply themselves and even if they do not thanks to an ever over reaching big government.
My first duty station (circa 1982-84) was the Philippines where real poverty exists still to this day. I never saw happier people anywhere in the world. They did not know they were poor by our standards and they did not consider themselves victims. They got up everyday and put their best foot forward. Americans need to get back to this.
Yes they are the first to get shot because they cannot be trusted not to actually start telling the truth about the real American system built around the US constitution. People are fickle that way. Put the boots to them, then they begin to see things a little differently. They begin to see the err of their ways and what they have wrought albiet for a very brief time...hopefully the Calvary can come over the hill, but I am afraid that when America fails, there will be no one to rescue us. Russia? China? Do we want to live under their rule?
Philippe Bourgois obviously practises solo bukkake.
Since you got your 9mm a several weeks ago; every post you submit talks about shooting people.
You are indeed...... unsafe.
How can the United States of America allow this type person to teach our children? Why do people keep giving endowments to this type college?
This man is a shame to America and should move where they appreciate communists, not here. That way he can be among his own, the socialist, marxist and communists and love their freedom if he doesn't love ours.
We need to kick the azzes of these anti-American professors out of all schools and higher education.
Higher education my azz! There's nothing lower than a teacher who indoctrinates our children with this low down socialist, communists crapola.......move the hell out of our country, pronto! And take that fox-piven with you, that pervert.
Everyone should watch this vid,, from Yuri Bezmenov exKGB who explains the ideological subversion aka brainwashing aka demoralization aka psychological warfare. He explains that this is how the ideology and strategy of global communism,,, it is a war of the "mind" and the "modern liberals" are the useful idiots undermining their nation and aiding in enslaving themselves and society.
It may be hard for some of you to admit, but he is right on everything but Marxism. Personally, I think that anyone who believes in socialist or marxist state should be deported to Cuba or China immediately. I don't like it at all. BUT, you have to concede that we DO live in a police state and that our medical system is a farce, designed to keep you sick for longer and thus suck money out of you. It starts all the way at the bottom by regulating the "supply" of medical professionals to people who have attended a formal training school (nurses) or college and then a formal training (doctors). There is no reason why a person wanting to be a doctor should have to take 4 years of college and earn a degree in a field they will never use in order to become a family practice physician. They can learn all they need from a single course of study at a medical school. The normal physician is not doing calculus, organic chemistry, physics, micro-biology, or writing articles fit for publishing in his daily work.
Besides "LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT" I have only one more thing, "If socialism/communism is so great why is it every socialist gov't has to enforce it with the military?
I had a prof in college that taught an upper level sociology class that was an admitted marxist. He taught this class as an indoctrination to his beliefs. I was already well into my 30s when I took this class so I already had my own belief system but most of the "mush-heads" in the class bought it hook line and sinker. There were a few that accused him during class time of indoctrination during the semester but he laughed it off and told tham that he was right and they were wrong about how things should work.
So, Prof. BourgEois (pun intended), you say the McCarthy era is over?
OM---! I see the light at the end of the tunnel. What are we waiting for? BRING IT BACK!
You are looking at the symptoms not the cause, the cause is "demoralization" since the 60's, the ideological encroachment of "modern liberalism" aka socialism, the lack of personal responsibility, accountability and self reliance.
The irony and logical fallacy from these "Leftists" intellectuals is that they promote marxism/communism/socialism as the solution to problems which have been creating by the very subversion of individual liberty and subtle incremental imposition of Socialism.
These problem do exist but they have been exacerbated or created by the "modern liberal" ideology which has undermined the shared values and culture which binds Western society.. Marxism exploits or creates is a perpetual crisis. So, it is creeping Marxist ideology that has saved or created these problems..
They have created an "open" society which is diverse, weakened and easily subverted.
The reason America is a perverse place is because the Progressives have been in control for more than 100 years trying to implement those useful Marxist polices that he so dearly loves! God bless him, I hope he sees the light before God calls him home otherwise he's not going to have a very good judgement day!
Our universities are full of and controlled by these leftists, that's why I'm no big fan of our present education system. More money, more money, why should I pay more taxes for such corrupt indoctrination camps?
Your comment is completely accurate but watch out for the "scientifically proven" comeback. Fat poor people claim that the cheaper foods have more fat content, which is why they're fatter even though they eat less.
I don't know where they grocery shop but I've found out, that a bag of brocolli, some carrots and or cauliflour, with some ceaser salad dressing for flavor, or some apples or oranges or something, is far cheaper than chips, tacos and candy.
And I never cared for the vegies when I younger either with age I became afflicted with that "I can't eat like I did when I was a hyperactive youth" condition.
Also, a lot of the "I'm hefty cause I'm poor" people watch too much tv and I've never been able to do that without going for a snack.
So something I did to change eating habits, when I found I was gaining weight, was go for a walk. It stopped me from automatically going to the fridge when I just thought I was hungry.
And another little fact that seems to have escaped the perpetually unemployed, volunteer work. It's not what you know it's who you know, and a great way to get a foot in the door. Potential employers have a no risk opportunity to view your a work ethic and even if nothing comes out of it, you get out of the house, you ain't eating all day, and you've helped somebody else out.
I think I just went off on a rant.
I gave 24 years of my life, after giving the oath of allegiance twice, to defending this country. I absolutely guarantee that if someone like this POS gets in MY face spouting this crap,,,,he WILL be eating a very large portion of 'knuckle sandwich.' Absolutely guaranteed.
I heard this guy is Obama's fluffer.

His name says it all. With alternate spelling, he is common. The common variety liberal whose thought processes have been compromised. He is a computer whose hard-drive won't boot up. His is a mind whose elevator does not go all the way up. He is a building in which the lights are burning but no one is in residence. He is a few brick shy, a piece of bread shy of a sandwich, a continual dripping. There are not enough cliches' to cover the imbecile.
No worries! Romney will fix it!

When will the Blaze run a story on Bilderberg 2012? Which is going on right now in Chantilly VA.
Neocons and liberals alike can not deny it anymore. The real news from the BLAZE needs to cover this. But I bet they wont. Cause Beck is a sell out. Him and his private jet and charging thousands of dollars to meet him.

We are the only country in the world with 3 hundred pound poor people.
To Professor Philippe Bourgois:
We have these machines called airplanes that can take you to anywhere you want to go around the world. Don't let the door kick you in the a$$ on your way out....better yet, let it.
Sgbt, your right after the fact it seems you do not need all these classes for a undergraduate degree. However the actual path most people take to be in medicine ie physician they don't always know when they pick a major in college that they will eventually be perusing medical school. Also you are incorrect about physics,chemistry etc... Are essential building blocks for medicine.for all of the complaining about cost let's have areal discussion about medical costs multiple levels of bureaucracy defensive medicine and the legal climate. By the way Obamacare makes all of this worse.
Sbgt, your statement about the medical establishment want to keep people sick,I guess your including doctors and nurses. If so your a complete and total idiot.
I keep hearing this statistic about how we, the USA, has more incarcerated people, blah, blah, blah. Aren't we also more efficient at catching criminals? Don't we also, for the most part, take the law seriously and go after offenders more so than any other country?
I keep hearing this statistic about how we, the USA, has more incarcerated people, blah, blah, blah. Aren’t we also more efficient at catching criminals?
Stop calling them that. They are "un-free people." Oh, the barbarity of America!
The only thing this professor is contributing to society is hate and envy of others more successful than him. People should all be measured by their ability and not by the color of their skin.
Shut up you anti american marxist
If the relative affluence of the so called "Poor" in this country had to do with their work ethics, personal drive, and direct contribution to society, They would all look like concentration camp survivors and the buzzards would be too fat to fly Who has gotten rich off of who's back?
I like the way you think.
When you start with the theory that America is a free country, then your prediction will be that freedom to choose right from wrong will most likely lead to some people choosing the wrong, and most people choosing the right. The prison population is evidence that we're FREE, not the opposite.
Spend your professorial bengies on a plane ticket to any marxist country you choose
and take along all your friends...Obama, Ayers & commie company.
Nobody's forcing you to live in a free nation,
you want to Force our country to change for you ?
Here's a quarter, Bucko....call someone who cares...like Castro or Chavez,
This guy is another one of the educated idiots that hang around academia that are just plane sick. You would think that as someone that profess to be a professor he may have read Plato's Republic or More's Utopia or Hobbs Leviathan and noticed that in none of those books were any of them, even theoretically, able to make the systems work. As for Marx it was tried for 70 in Russia and Cuba and some other backward countries and all they did was manage to kill approx. 50 million people not including the wars. This is a moron.
Street Justice for this dog.
It all goes much deeper than that.
Imagine, if you could remember and write down everything corrupt, incompetent, and evil that we’ve learned about Obama, his administration, and the left-wing Marxist progressives in general… What would the list look like?
This is what it would look like…
Google… Legacy of the American Trojan Horse
Over 8,000 facts… See how many you knew.
What is he talking about - Reagan was a Compassionate Conservative Republican.
Reagan lowered the amount we spend on Welfare per recipient from a $47,000 cost to distribute just one recipient to under $20,000 - Then he raised the amount that Welfare Recipients get. He save Welfare.
Today under Obama, America is now spending over $100,000 a year to pay just one Recipient. The Recipient get $10,000 a year in benefits - where is the rest of the over $90,000 going. NO BODY WILL TELL YOU. Not one Presidential Candidate today can tell you just how Reagan set Clinton up for a Balance Budget - In Clinton 1st year. Thanks Reagan - you were a great American.
I predict that within one month after Obama's Re-election - Welfare will be wiped out by Obama - Muslims don't care one bit about those that can't work - A Muslim believes they should starve or work. Yet, Millions of Welfare recipients follow the very man that is going to destroy them.
Maybe if the poor spent more time cooking they may be a little tired and not want to eat so much if they only knew what goes into their processed foods they may just vomit a few pounds away.
People like this are what the NDAA was needed for those that speak against the U.S.A.
@silentwatcher: For sure. ;->
I wonder if Bourgis would approve of an economist making bold statements about a topic of study within anthropology. Here's my point: why do these professors, who have absolutely no background whatsoever in economics, continue to go on public speaking tours talking about economics? And how do these fools explain away the awful history of marxism in the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba, Nicaragua, Illinois and California? (I had to get those last two in there!)
Sue, Thanks for that link... it was one of the most insightful interviews that I have ever seen. Shawn
Don't communist countries detest the educated class? They are generally rounded up and either sent to a gulag or just plain shot. The Cultural Revolution, Pol Pot, the Soviet purges, etc. all targeted people just like this twit. So either he wants to be dictator or he is so stupid he doesn't realize he will be the first to be executed under that wonderful communism government he longs for. My money is on choice B. The guy is a total moron. How do these people get jobs at universities? Only another complete idiot would hire this guy.
Fellow citizens, when are we going to realize, as taxpayers, WE ARE THE BOSS, & demand that IDIOTS like this be forbidden on our college campus's, let alone teaching our kids how to destroy our country! I'm in favor of denying citizenship to idiots like this!! Take his citizenship away from him & put him on a plane to China, Iran, or Russia or somewhere he can have a happy life,.....apparently he's not happy living in the greatest country on Earth, so get him the hell out of it!!! I listen to bird-brain idiots like this, & reminisce about all the American military that fought & died over the years, just so this idiot can have his freedom to ridicule our country into the ground!!! If it wasn't for America, this fool & his ancesters would have been "goose-stepping" in the bread line for centuries!!!!
@SgtB: "There is no reason why a person wanting to be a doctor should have to take 4 years of college and earn a degree in a field they will never use in order to become a family practice physician. They can learn all they need from a single course of study at a medical school. The normal physician is not doing calculus, organic chemistry, physics, micro-biology, or writing articles fit for publishing in his daily work."
I'm one of those chronically ill people who's alive & doing well because I have excellent drs. I want my drs to be well-trained. Calculus, physics, & writing train the mind to think in ways other subjects do not. Organic chemistry, & micro-biology are directly related to medicine: learning human chemistry is vital. Micro-biology shows potential drs the level on which many illnesses are diagnosed & treated. Family drs today are not country drs of of the past. We can't go back to that time. Medicine is different. Flannery O"Connor died of lupus in the '50s. I undergo chemo every 6 mos & live a much fuller life than she ever could. It takes drs, including my family dr, w/ the training to diagnosis & treat me. I also have several other Lupus-related illnesses & live a better, fuller life because of well-trained drs. (My family dr diagnosed & treated a flesh eating bacteria. It was healed in 1 wk.) My illness is not the result of an unhealthy lifestyle. It's genetic. Drs w/ adequate training r keeping people like me alive. 50 yrs ago, people like me die
@ DANO... I would add one more factor to your astute observations. Those on the government dole are likely not working, hence they are idle most of the time. Inactivity has as much to do with obesity as does diet. I'm not surprised the genius profiled in this article overlooked something so obvious. Those who can do, those who can't, teach. Nuf' said.
Probably a Cultural Anthropologist. At the same intellectual level as a sociologist.
This man is a croc. His name is a
This man is a fake and not even a good one .Just look at his name, bourgois. ridiculous that he would think a good conservative would not pick up on that. He has to read his grievance.I don't know anything about North philly, but if it's like Chicago, the police are probably warrented in their approach.
Now that I am a full fledged 2012 conservative activist, I wish I had been there. In the South where I am from, in circles I don't travel in, they would refer to him as a "candy ass". I think that applies real well..
