Chik-Fil-A Appears to Have Surrendered

September 19, 2012


THE fast food company has announced it will re-evaluate its donations to organizations that are against same-sex marriage and that it will include “sexual orientation” in its anti-discrimination hiring policy. Read about it here.

If you’ve developed a taste for fried chicken patties, get over it.

The Saucer Files, cont.

September 19, 2012


IN THIS previous post on UFOs, Alan responds to commenters who suggest there is credible evidence that objects seen in the sky have been spaceships from other planets. He writes:

In reply to the comments on my Saucer post:

1)  Jim P. wonders why a “professional journalist” would write a book about UFOs.  How about money?  Fame?  Notoriety?   Frank Edwards, another “professional journalist,” wrote two books about Flying Saucers in 1966-’67, and one became a best-seller.  He was a good storyteller.  But what degree of truth his books contained is another matter.  Leslie Kean says nothing in her book that Saucer Fans have not been saying for half a century.

The Have-It-All Mentality

September 19, 2012



I came upon this recent Forbes piece by a Meghan Casserly who covers “the juggle of work, life and play for smart, ambitious women.” It’s about smart, ambitious women dropping out of the workforce to be smart, ambitious mothers. From the piece:

“No feminist voice can or should make a woman feel bad for the decision to choose family over career.”

Feel bad? Oh my, that’s terrible. Are women that shallow and impressionable that they must have society endorse all of their whims and fantasies and not make them “feel bad” for their precious choices? Read More »


Promoting Freaks, Outlawing Normal

September 19, 2012


THE Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights has launched a campaign promoting sensitivity toward the transgendered, “the first government-sponsored campaign in the country to focus on the treatment of transgender and gender non-conforming communities,” according to the New York Daily News. 

The print ads portray “gender non-conforming communities,” or the sad and perverted process of pretending to be the opposite sex, as cool and exciting, and caution people to treat the transgendered with “courtesy and respect.”

At the same time, the school district of Cranston, Rhode Island has decided to prohibit its father-daughter dances.  A single mother complained through the ACLU that the events were discriminatory because not every child has a father to attend.

Under liberalism, the low must be exalted and the high debased. And the distinctiveness of the sexes must be constantly denied. We are all part of a gender non-conforming community now.

Better Body Armor for Female Soldiers, Hooray!

September 19, 2012


JAMES P. writes:

The Daily Mail reports that the Army has developed a new type of body armor for women. I am reminded of the old Secret deodorant ad — “strong enough for a man, made for a woman.”

Of course, that armor won’t help them when their Afghan “colleagues” shoot them after they remove their body armor…
