Is Malala’s Response to Modesty on the Beach a Form of Slut-Shaming?

“No disrespect to Malala, but this kind of dichotomy thinking where it’s all or nothing positions people against each other. A woman can wear whatever she wants but by saying she’s wearing “nothing” when she’s just wearing less, is another form of slut-shaming. Malala isn’t intentionally slut-shaming, but the language she uses still carries that […]

Coalitions Win Wars, Infighting Loses Them

Squabbling and mistrust among those who share values and who recognized the depth of the radical Islamist threat to Western values is counterproductive. One of my tasks as San Diego Chapter leader for Act! For America is to build a coalition of like-minded Americans to protect our precious way of life from the imposition of […]

NASA Top Chief Says “Muslim World” Next Frontier

NASA’s top priority is to improve relations with the Muslim world?! I think President Obama is confused, and thinks that the phrase “Muslim world” refers to another planet. This is the sort of absurd misuse of government power that makes people suspicious and cynical. Want to improve relations with the Muslim world? Note – I’m […]

Tackling Racism in GOP Politics

I first stumbled upon Nikki Haley last Thursday, on Gawker.com, one of my secret naughty pleasures full of all things dirty and bad. I was struck by her beauty. Indian women are ever oh so lovely.

The Emperor Has No Clothes

At the 2004 Democrat National Convention a little know senatorial candidate from Illinois gave an electrifying speech. It was the kind of speech that brings Americans together. He talked about America as a “beacon of freedom.” He referred to a grandfather who volunteered for service in the wake of Pearl Harbor. He even noted that […]

Face to faith: Freedom of Religion Should be Extended to the Use of Drugs in Spiritual Practice

submitted by Alexander Beiner In the heavy, moist air of the Amazon rainforest, I sit waiting as an old shaman pours an ancient sacrament into a cup.
