    Once upon a time there was a king who
    wanted to go fishing.

    He called the royal weather
    forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours. The
    weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming
    days.

    So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he
    met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, “Your Majesty,
    you should return to the palace at once because in just a short time I expect a
    huge amount of rain to fall in this area”.

    The king was polite and
    considerate, he replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is
    an extensively educated and experienced professional. And besides, I pay him
    very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him and I
    will continue on my way.” So he continued
    on his way.

    However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the
    sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon
    seeing them in such a shameful condition. Furious, the king returned to the
    palace and gave the order to fire the professional.

    Then he summoned the farmer and
    offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster. The farmer
    said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about
    forecasting. I obtain my
    information from my donkey.
    If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with
    certainty that it will rain.”

    So the king hired the donkey.
    And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the government and
    occupy its highest and most influential positions.

    And the practice is
    unbroken to this day..

    Professors admit Brandeis Law is committed to ‘liberal agenda’

    Two professors from the School of Law claimed in a series of op-eds that their commitment to social justice constitutes a “liberal agenda.”

    Two professors from the University of Louisville’s Brandeis School of Law claimed in a series of op-eds Sunday that the school’s commitment to social justice constitutes a “liberal agenda.”

    “Since 1846 the law school at the University of Louisville has provided nonpartisan space for individuals to teach, discuss, and research matters of law and public policy,” Professor Luke Milligan states in an op-ed for the Louisville Courier-Journal. “Unfortunately, this long run of institutional neutrality seems headed for an abrupt end.”

    The reason for that dire assessment, he explains, is the school’s decision to begin handing out promotional materials to incoming students and faculty proclaiming “its institutional commitment to ‘progressive values’ and ‘social justice’” in conformity with a pledge made in 2014 following a divisive faculty vote.

    Milligan complains that the endorsement of social justice amounts to “[giving] the state-funded law school an ‘ideological brand’,” which he calls “misguided” in light of the controversy the topic engenders.

    “While terms like ‘social justice’ and ‘compassionate’ might seem ‘inclusive’ to you, tens of millions of Americans disagree,” he points out, noting that “people hear these terms in a legal or political context and think ‘liberal orthodoxy’.”

    Even those who support those concepts, he adds, should be wary of the threat to academic freedom posed by institutional commitments to any divisive idea, particularly one that involves “formally prioritizing liberal orthodoxy in an array of university matters (including research, hiring, and student scholarships).”

    The latest in moonbat haught cuisine

    Katharina Unger and Julia Kaisinger, 25 and 28, have developed a device to breed in the comfort of your own home the protein-rich grubs of the meal beetle, to then eat.

    “With this current design you can make 200-500 grams (seven to 18 ounces) of mealworms every week,” Unger told AFP at a recent tasting and fundraising event in Vienna.

    “You freeze them and then you make them like any other type of meat. You can cook them, roast them, make them into burger patties and mix them into sauce for pasta,” she said.

    Into the top of the sleek, white “desktop hive” go pupae which then hatch into adults. In the next section, the “loveshack”, the insects mate and their eggs fall into the next layer.

    For years, the intellectual posture of America’s political leaders has been a long pleading, appeasing, self-abasing whine of apology for this country’s greatness.

    An apology addressed to every advocate or perpetrator of collectivism’s horrors and failures anywhere on earth.

    I did not want, intend or expect to be the only philosophical defender of man’s rights in the country of man’s rights. But if I am, I am. And, if I am giving you the intellectual ammunition and inspiration I had so desperately waited to hear in my youth, I’m glad.

    I can say, that I know how you feel.

    the first African-American nominated for the best director Academy Award for his 1991 film “Boyz n the Hood,” doesn’t have a problem with this year’s diversity-lacking nominations.

    Singleton, who’s directing an episode of FX’s upcoming “People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” says the nominees depend less on race and more on what’s eligible in a given year’s award cycle.

    “There’s only so many slots, though,” Singleton told Variety when asked why the Academy did not nominate any African-American nominees. “There are a couple of movies that may have (warranted attention) but … It’s all subjective. It’s almost like the lottery.”

    Singleton continued, “It’s like every year people complain. People even complain even when we have a lot of nominations. It is what it is. I’ve been in the game for 25 years. You never know — it’s the luck of the draw for you. To me, I’m not surprised. I’m not disappointed either, as much as other people are disappointed. There’s a whole elevation of work that happens.”

    “Every year there’s at least a few films that don’t get nominated and you have all these films that do get nominated and then the films that aren’t nominated are elevated over time. ‘Do the Right Thing’ never got nominated for best picture, but that year, nobody’s talking about ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ any more. Everybody’s still talking about ‘Do the Right Thing.’ It happens every year.”

    Though he was nominated for “Boyz n the Hood” (marking not only the first black director to be nominated, but also the youngest person ever in that category at the age of 24), Singleton recalls a piece of advice he received at that time.

    “As my friend Sidney Poitier told me when ‘Boyz n the Hood’ came out, just because a film doesn’t get recognized when it first comes out, does not mean it’s not a great film. ‘Singing in the Rain’ was not lauded when it first came out, but ‘Singing in the Rain’ became a classic,” he said. “To me, as a veteran, it doesn’t bother me as much. I know there are other works that will be recognized by a more diverse Academy and I know there will be other years when work that is really deserving doesn’t get recognized.”

    Supreme Court to rule on Obama immigration orders

    The justices also added a question on whether Obama’s action violated the Constitutional provision that he ‘take care that the Laws be faithfully executed.’

    The Supreme Court announced Tuesday that it will take up a case challenging the legality of President Barack Obama’s executive actions aimed at granting quasi-legal status and work permits to up to five million people who entered the U.S. illegally as children or who have children who are American citizens.

    The high court’s widely-expected move gives Obama a chance to revive a key legacy item that has been in limbo for nearly a year, since a federal judge in Texas issued an order halting immigration moves the president announced just after the 2014 midterm elections.

    Story Continued Below

    The justices are expected to hear arguments on the issue in April and to hand down a ruling by the end of June. Illegal immigration has already been a hot topic in the presidential contest, but the high-profile attention brought on by the Supreme Court fight could amp up the debate even further as the campaign plays out this spring and summer.

    If the court rules in Obama’s favor, his administration will have a relatively short, seven-month window to try to roll out the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and the new initiative called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans. While advocacy groups are eager to have illegal immigrants apply for the programs, there are questions about how many will do so if they’re debuted or expanded so close to the end of Obama’s presidency.

    The calculation of whether to apply may depend, in part, on the state of the presidential race and whether whoever is atop the field seems likely to continue Obama’s policies. Since the moves are executive actions, they could be quickly rescinded and most of the major Republican candidates have pledged to do just that.

    Americans are world’s most charitable.

    In your face, moonbats!

    In a first of its kind survey, the Almanac found that Americans out-donate Britain and Canada two-to-one and nations like Italy and Germany 20-to-one. What’s more, more than half of every single income class except those earning less than $25,000 donate to charity.

    The much maligned top 1 percent in the U.S. economy fork over one third of all donations made. Even in death.

    “The wealthiest 1.4 percent of Americans are responsible for 86 percent of the charitable donations made at death,” said the survey conducted by Public Opinion research.

    In a first of its kind survey, the Almanac found that Americans out-donate Britain and Canada two-to-one and nations like Italy and Germany 20-to-one. What’s more, more than half of every single income class except those earning less than $25,000 donate to charity.

    The much maligned top 1 percent in the U.S. economy fork over one third of all donations made. Even in death.

    “The wealthiest 1.4 percent of Americans are responsible for 86 percent of the charitable donations made at death,” said the survey conducted by Public Opinion research.

    By the way, the only reason that 62 people now own as much as the POOREST half of the world’s population is because socialist policies tend to make the poor poorer and thus more dependent on their socialist overlords – see what Obama has been doing here as a textbook example.

    Moonbats upset about the pending extinction of people with Downs Syndrome.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/12103340/Downs-Syndrome-people-risk-extinction-at-the-hands-of-science-fear-and-ignorance.html

    But what do most women do when their baby tests positive for Downs? They abort. Around 90 per cent of pregnancies that involve the condition end in a termination. In 2014, 693 abortions were carried out for this reason – a jump of 34 per cent since 2011. The rise is blamed on increased access to blood tests via private clinics. American campaigners warn of the risk of “extinction”. In Denmark, the head of a midwife association blandly told a newspaper: “When you can discover almost all the foetuses with Down Syndrome, then we are approaching a situation in which almost all of them will be aborted.”

    What do you know, they are against abortion? That’s a switch, if only to preserve persons with Downs Syndrome.

    However, the claim they will become ‘extinct’ is nonsense – since it’s not inherited and the cause is unknown, no matter how many of them they abort, others may still come along.

    Is it a mother’s right to kill her child just because it has an issue like Downs?

    Confidence in race relations in America continues to fall, with hopes for the future at their lowest level yet.

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/lifestyle/general_lifestyle/january_2016/50_say_race_relations_in_america_getting_worse

    Only 18% rate race relations in America today as good or excellent, unchanged from last year at this time but down from 34% two years ago. Thirty-three percent (33%) now consider race relations poor, up from 15% in 2011 and 29% last January.

    Interestingly, unlike most questions related to race, there isn’t a wide difference of opinion on these questions between blacks and whites.
