Yes, they took it down(after massive media attention), but they did put it up in the first place. So for your continued “enjoyment” (if only as a historical lesson) I give you (from the still fully operation battle-station at the UNH Department of Diversity) The Bias Free Language Guide.

Everyone regrets the killing of Cecil, a majestic lion.  The law-breakers should be prosecuted.  But the outrage and viciousness of the attacks on those involved is puzzling.

Some of the outrage is simply because the pictures show Cecil as a benign and magnificent animal, not as the bully and killer that he was.  But mostly we react because, as civilized humans, we believe in the rule of law, have a sense of morality, and respect for majestic animals.

Seeing the outrage over a lion’s killing, one has to wonder, where is the outrage at much worse offenses against American citizens?         Read the whole thing!

Kathryn Steinle shouldn’t be dead.  Joshua Wilkerson, Mirta Rivera, Casey Chadwick, Rodney Johnson, Javier Vega Jr., Jamiel Shaw Jr., and over 25,000 more Americans shouldn’t be dead either.  They were all killed by illegal aliens who shouldn’t have been here.

Those Americans died and millions of others were raped, robbed, battered, kidnapped, impoverished, or otherwise victimized because greedy Washington Democrat and Republican politicians and special interest groups care more about their own power and wealth than the well-being of the American people.

Illegal immigration beneficiaries repeatedly lie about its benefits for our country, e.g., doing jobs Americans won’t do, law-abiding, tax-paying, etc.

American workers do all jobs: waiters, housekeeping, crop picking, garbage collecting, ditch digging, construction, cleaning-out septic tanks, etc.  The vast majority of workers in all but a very few job categories are American citizens.  More Americans would be working and self-supporting if immigrants didn’t take jobs and drive down wages.  Read the whole thing!

Two levels of government have the responsibility, authority, and capability to protect the citizens of San Francisco from illegal aliens.  Currently these are the Democrat controlled City Government and the Democrat, President Obama, controlled Federal Government.  Both governments failed to protect Kathryn Steinle from being murdered by a habitual felon and repeatedly deported illegal alien who was in San Francisco because it’s one of America’s 276 “sanctuary” cities.

Kathryn Steinle could have been just another one of thousands of unpublicized illegal alien homicide victims.  (More than one daily based on Government reports.  For some names, faces, and details see:  http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp)

Most Americans only know about Kathryn’s murder because Donald Trump created a firestorm by talking about the harm done to our country and to millions of Americans by illegal aliens.

Trump’s comments are still being condemned by the politically correct crowd who try to shut down anyone, any talk, or anything that threatens their political objectives, their favored special interests, and the Washington elite.     Read the whole thing!

Ultra Ever DryI ready this and being the engineer that I am, I instantly thought of a number of ways in which to render this “fix” irrelevant and avoid it completely, but here is the sad story:

San Francisco’s #1 problem might be solved with pee-resistant paint

San Francisco is testing the idea of painting walls with urine-repellant paint that will soak the sprayer before the wall gets wet.  Mohammed Nuru, San Francisco’s director of public works, got the idea to use the paint, Ultra-Ever Dry, after reading about its effectiveness in Hamburg, Germany. The paint repels most liquids so the urine would “bounce back” on the sprayer.

“The urine will bounce back on the guy’s pants and shoes,” Rachel Gordon, a public works department spokeswoman, said. “The idea is they will think twice next time about urinating in public.”  After painting nine walls around areas with prominent nightlife or homeless communities, the city has received requests many other requests for the paint. In fact, it costs less money to paint the wall than to clean it, Gordon said, according to The Guardian.

Liberals are more upset over the death of a freaking lion than Planned Parenthood running a baby chop shop and more outraged over Tom Brady destroying his phone than Hillary Clinton destroying thousands of emails and continually lying out of her liar hole about it.

Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal sums up these micro-totalitarians, perfect examples of the Progressive  philosophy: “The essence of modern Democratic Progressivism is: You will participate in what we have created for you, and you will comply with the law’s demands.” One used to believe that before pen was set to legislative paper, our elected officials WOULD contemplate “is this Constitutional”?

First off, it isn’t that many of us don’t understand, it IS that we just completely disagree with you.  Given the lurching to the Socialist Left that has occurred these last few years, we DO understand what you want to do which is not unlike what Mussolinni did in Italy in the 1930s and what happened in Germany as well – that Government stopped short of becoming Communists but only in the fact that they realized that they did not have to de jure own the elements of production, they only had to have de facto control of them to get the same desired results.

And if you REALLY are honest with yourselves, we see her not just wanting to keep what Obama and his agencies have done to achieve that goal, but she is reaching further.  After all (if you look below to her little section), it is not about the individual but ALWAYS about the Collective.

“The mainstream media has its own agenda. They do not want to print the facts. They have an agenda, they have a slant, they have a bias. It is outrageous to me.”  Curt Weldon
armed+forces+recruiting+station“Rednecks and Recruiting Stations,” is yet another theme in the liberal Screed. Espoused by the Lamestream media, the purpose remains to leave our recruiters unguarded, unprotected and still vulnerable.  Recruiting stations, despite being a target, are the same now as they were before Chattanooga. This back hand come from the top down: Obama commanded his military command staff to parrot the message to Americans: Stand down.

Impressive Foreign Policy speech from Carly Fiorina. It is 53 minutes full of red-meat. Fifty-three minutes of things you’d never hear from Obama.

If you are a fan of rule of law and due process this article at the Washington Post puts the NFL v. Tom Brady DeflateGate foolishness into proper perspective. A suitable synopsis would be “The NFL is a Banana Republic.”

Goodell is Obama, with his phone and pen, interpreting rules, process, and even evidence to arrive at desire conclusion. He’s even spent a fortune to produce reams of incompetence.  But for what? If inflation had any effect at all on the game it was that the so-called “proper inflation” gave the Patriots a significant advantage in the Second Half.

Welcome to the University of New Hampshire – Please do as we say or you will be set upon by the warriors of political correctness.

Here is how we describe our plan for how you will behave after brain washing posing as an education:

A formal Statement from the UNH President on the “Bais Free Language Guide”, UNH Policy Regarding speech, and addressing the UNH Web presence moving forward.

UNH Institutional Mark

Good afternoon,

By now you will have seen press coverage of a language “guide” published on our website in 2013 by a small group of UNH faculty, students and staff. Some coverage of this “guide” has portrayed it as a statement of university policy. I want to make clear that it is NOT the case.

As I said yesterday, the views expressed in the guide are not and never have been the policy of the University of New Hampshire. The only UNH policy on speech is that it is free and unfettered on our campuses. Unfortunately, what was probably a well-meaning effort to be “sensitive” has proven offensive to many people, myself included. While I fully support the principles of equity and diversity at UNH, this was not the way to promote it. Speech guides or codes have no place at any American university.

The “guide” has been removed from our website. I have also ordered a review of UNH’s web posting policies. I was surprised to learn yesterday, when this “guide” was first brought to my attention, that the university has more than one million web pages on its site. I was also surprised–and unhappy–to learn that the university has not had policies in place that would make clear which UNH-hosted web pages reflect official UNH positions and policies and which pages include content that simply reflects the opinions of some members of our community.

I have appreciated hearing from many of you about this issue, and recognize that you are also hearing from constituents expressing their concerns. I hope this message helps to clarify the genesis of this matter as well as the steps we are taking to address it.

Regards,

Mark W. Huddleston

President

UNH has already pulled the Bias-Free Language guide, but not before our own NH House Rep, (And Campus Reform Contributor) Yvonne Dean-Baily was on Fox News to talk about it.

WMUR has the story here.

DURHAM, N.H. —The University of New Hampshire has removed from its website a “bias-free language guide” …

And they have. They retooled and shuffled and it is gone. (Of course I screen grabbed it so it’s not really gone.) But this is an interesting development and we are happy to be part of the outrage that lead to it being pulled.

But the idea behind the guide is not gone.  It lives and breathes in the UNH office of Diversity (and the home of Inclusive Excellence) that spawned it. This is a feature of the modern American university culture. It is wired in to their thinking. And I’d bet you taxpayer money it is embedded in the curriculum.

If anyone finds it there, by all means share it with us.

In the socialist elite parlors of Europe New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen and her Democrat Party are monsters.

From Mark Steyn (Emphasis mine).

” … in France abortion is legal up to 12 weeks; Italy, 13 weeks; Norway, 18 weeks, but it requires the approval of a government commission. Nowhere else in the western world takes 39-week-old “fetuses”, delivers them sufficiently to preserve the commercially valuable parts and then crushes the non-sellable parts in order to preserve a technical denial of infanticide. That is a uniquely American evil, and Americans should be utterly ashamed of it. American liberals ought to understand that in far more left-wing societies (Scandinavia, the Netherlands, France) they do not do this – because it’s not a left/right thing, it’s a good/bad thing, and Planned Parenthood’s abortion-industrial complex is on the wrong side of that divide.”

So all of Europe hates women’s health then. Got it.

We continue with Michelle on legislation allowing parents to opt out of state-wide assessments, some opt out numbers from this years testing, district incentives (ice-cream parties, etc) to reward students who took the tests (and isolate those who did not), and parental involvement.
