The most dangerous animal in the world

Oct 31 2014 7:29pm CDT | Source: WND

The most dangerous creature in the world is not the black mambo, the African lion or even a mama grizzly defending her cubs. The most dangerous creature in the world is a lame duck. The lame duck has no regard for the life, liberty or property. It is so widely reviled that the American people once tried to exterminate it. But it crawled back from the verge of extinction to greater numbers and more power than ...

Oct 31 2014 7:17pm CDT | Source: WND

For decades we have wrestled with feminism. Too many men and women still say they are feminists on the assumption feminism seeks equality – a prevarication drilled into our heads by feminists for 50 years. When you watch the feet and ignore the lips, the primary political and social goals of feminism are obvious. The core feminist agenda all along has been the destruction of marriage, the persecuti ...

Choice Between Voters and Rioters?

Oct 31 2014 4:35pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

"Voter fraud" or "voter suppression" defines current contortionist politics, too frequently depending on one's party affiliation. There are some lessons America can garner from the experience of other societies more recently and perhaps its own before most US voters were born. Democracy frustrated can erupt into civil disobedience, even violence. More immediately, by pressing "voter suppression" with little evidence of "voter fra ...

Squaring the Circle: Rule According to Law in a One-Party State

Oct 31 2014 1:10pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The greatest dilemma facing the Chinese government in its long-standing efforts to build an effective legal system is how to ensure both the integrity of the judiciary and the Communist Party's monopoly of power. In the early days of the reform, Deng Xiaoping, the late paramount leader, opted for a pragmatic strategy.
