Fundamental Change in the World Requires Fundamental Change in Our Skin-Color-Associated Premises

Most ideas about "race" begin with the assumption that "biological race" exists in the first place. My idea for truly fundamental change is to begin completely weening America off of the concept that biological "races" exist at all. The false and dangerous belief that biological "races" exist twists Americans' minds and arouses ideation, emotion and behavior (like hate crimes) in ways that prepare and compel people to struggle with one another over skin color and…

Do Tell, Do Serve

America’s military has been off limits to homosexuals for years.  As part of the famed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy highlighted in American policy throughout the years and proposed by Bill Clinton and Colin Powell, gays have been able to serve as long as they do not disclose their sexual orientation.  The chronology of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell shows the onslaught of criticism the program faced both when it was passed and in the immediate years after.

Obama on the international stage

Barrack Hussein Obama is on fire. I may disagree with his ideas on policy, but I cannot deny that he is receiving enormous amounts of attention. One of the most fascinating aspects about his campaign is his rock star status not just in the United States, but overseas. A friend of mine was in Amsterdam on Thursday and said that many of her colleagues were enthralled with Obama. They asked her endless questions about the new candidate (most of them struggled to pronounce his name). On a side…

YouTube Removes Video Quoting Violent Koran

Recently, Nick Gisburne posted a nine minute video on YouTube consisting of nothing but direct quotes from the Koran. The video is straightforward and uses Islam’s own words in implicating it as the violent religion that it is. YouTube in turn removed the video from the web site, and then put it back in the face of criticism.

Of the incident, Jason Miller writes:

At YouTube, you can…

General Principles of First Aid

First aid is the initial care of anyone who is either injured or sick.  It is care that is given as soon as possible.  This quick treatment can often mean the difference between serious and minor injury and, at times, life and death.

Not everyone is a doctor, nurse or paramedic.  But everyone can provide basic first aid in case of accidents and illness.  There is no doubt by anyone who works in the medical field that first aid saves lives and can change a potentially bad outcome to a…
