  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

Those Damn White Males

Rather than donating the proceeds from their annual fundraising event to Cystic Fibrosis research,  the Carleton University Students’ Association (located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) decided that the disease of Cystic Fibrosis was not racially diverse enough for their hard work, and because these young skulls full of mush believed it is predominantly in white males, they cancelled the fundraiser.

Although anecdotal, I have seen just as many white females affected by the disease as white males (I’m a healthcare professional for over 19 years), but I fail to see why color and gender should even ENTER into the equation.

Should a fundraiser for Sickle Cell Anemia be cancelled because the disease isn’t a caucasian disease? Should a Tay-Sachs fundraiser be cancelled because it is a disease affecting those who are Jewish? I think not…

These students have taken political correctness to a new low. And while they supposedly are going to “overturn” their decision to drop the fundraiser, the damage to the reputation of the students and university is already done.

Michelle Malkin hit the nail on the head: Behold the rotten fruits of educational malpractice.
