College is not a “safe space” for Christians

In Education, Society by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

This is a great op-ed from a professor of Philosophy at Duquesne University in Pennsylvania. He just so happens to be a Christian and an African American. Recalling his time as an undergrad, he say that what led him to feel “unsafe” on college campuses was not that he was black but that he was a Christian. But that’s ok, as he explains—college is meant to be a place where ideas are challenged, and feeling unsafe often leads to personal growth and strength of character.

Washington Post’s fact checker contradicted by previous articles in the Washington Post

In Media Bias by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

The mainstream media is abuzz today with something Donald Trump said? Are you surprised? He recalled Muslims in New Jersey celebrating the terrorists after 9/11, and under today’s progressive zeitgeist, saying anything bad about Muslims is completely taboo! The Washington Post fact checker fired off a quick “Four Pinocchios” article decrying Trump’s claims, but there was just one problem—a quick search of the Washington Post’s own archives provides an article from September 18, 2001 about Muslims in New Jersey hosting “tailgate parties” on their rooftops, watching the smoke rise from neighboring New York City.

Greensboro NC police’s gun surrender program yields only 1 BB gun

In 2nd Amendment, Police by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

We told you about the Greensboro NC police department’s plan to host a community-wide gun surrender. It seems the residents of Greensboro are much smarter than the police chief there, as exactly none of them decided to voluntarily disarm themselves and leave their homes without protection. What cops did get was 1,000 “non-violence pledges” (I promise to be really, really good this year, Santa!) and a single BB gun.

Well, here’s some comforting news to start your weekend. The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of a Syrian refugee who was supposed to be settled in Louisiana. When Louisiana officials couldn’t find him, they reached out to DHS who said he was “resettling” in Washington DC and was supposed to check in upon arrival there.

Utah public school apologizes after sending students home with “Make a propaganda poster for ISIS” homework assignment

In Education, Terrorism by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

Imagine if your child came home from a day at their public junior high school with the following homework assignment: “Make a propaganda poster for ISIS.” What would your reaction be? My guess is that there would be pretty much universal outrage. That was the case in Utah, and now the school is apologizing to parents for their flaming ball of stupidity.

MIT climate scientist: “When someone says this is the warmest temperature on record…it’s just nonsense.”

In Climate Change by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

A panel of prominent scientists gathered in Texas this week to denounce the politicized alarmism over climate change. The panel included MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen, Princeton physicist Dr. Will Happer, and Greenepeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore. Each of them had stinging criticism for the corruption of today’s scientific community, dismissing global warming alarmism as “nonsense,” “Orwellian,” and “propaganda.”
