Thought for the day

"The first panacea of a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permeant ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists." -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks for all the emails and cards!

It’s striking how much of a secret it is in modern America that affirmative action is mathematically necessary to achieve the levels of diversity that Nice White People think are morally mandatory. Pollsters seldom if ever ask this question, so I can’t prove that most Americans are ignorant of the fact that African Americans are not intelligent enough on average to be terribly competitive in quantitative terms in cognitively elite institutions and careers, but it sure seems like few Americans are cognizant of the cognitive realities.

The University of Notre Dame campus bookstore is making LGBT ideology and astrology practices available by selling gay children’s books and tarot cards.

On Wednesday, The Irish Rover, the campus newspaper, published an article detailing various products available in the school’s store, including content for children.

A California libertarian group has sued the Biden administration over its plan to cancel student debt, calling it an illegal overreach which will end up taxing some Americans whose debt is forgiven.

In a jarring reversal, the U.S. Department of Education on Thursday quietly revised its online guidance on who qualifies for the $10,000 of student loan forgiveness that President Biden announced in August. In doing so, it pulled the rug out from under at least several hundred thousand people.  

The Biden administration quietly announced a change in its student debt forgiveness program on Thursday that could exclude up to 4 million borrowers with loans owned or backed by private companies.

The u-turn by the federal government comes after the first legal challenges were filed to the policy and following criticism of the huge costs to taxpayers. Critics also claimed the plan is an illegal use of President Joe Biden's executive power.

This is amazing. Starting two years ago, college students all over the country were demanding the defunding and even removal of the police. Now these students want more security?

Michigan State University trustees are set to vote on a resolution Friday that would seemingly put vendors on notice: Support the political agenda of Democratic board members, or forget about doing business with the college.

Passage will trigger an explosive feud with the Republican-controlled Legislature, which holds MSU’s purse strings.

It looks like what happened here is that the minority groups called for defunding campus police, the conservative student groups protested the proposal, and the police detained the conservative students. Does that make any sense?
