In a supposed post racial America some people still seem to be obsessed with race…

Democrats criticize Haley’s checking of ‘white’ on voter registration application

What box should Gov. Nikki Haley check when it comes to her race?

The South Carolina Democratic Party tried Thursday to make Haley out as a liar for checking “white” as her race on her 2001 Lexington County voter registration application.

But the application had no specific option for “Indian.” Her options were “white, black/African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Native American or other.”

I guess the “One Drop Rule” is still the accepted philosophy of the modern Democrat Party. It still is for some celebrities

The left would have us believe that it is wrong to take away a judge’s discretion in some cases…

Judge tells teacher sex offender: ‘I don’t criticise you for being attracted to children’ – Telegraph.

David Armstrong, a supply teacher, escaped jail with a suspended sentence after admitting possessing 4,500 indecent images of children.

As she allowed the 63-year-old to walk free from court, Judge Mary Jane Mowat told him: “I don’t criticise you for being a teacher who’s attracted to children.

“Many teachers are but they keep their urges under control both when it comes to children and when it comes to images of children.”

Child abuse campaigners yesterday described the comments as “outrageous” and an insult to victims.

Shared Sacrifice = Higher Taxes

No matter what they say, they mean higher taxes…

Roger’s Rules » Speaking of Shared Sacrifice . . ..

So the president wants “millionaires and billionaires” to “share in the sacrifice everyone else has to make.”  Right.  A couple of points: by “millionaires and billionaires” he means middle-class folks with a family income of $250,000 or above. By “sacrifice everyone else has to make” he means everyone except the 43.4 percent of tax filers who pay no federal income tax — many of whom, in fact, get a check from the government, i.e., from the other 50-odd percent who do pay federal income tax. (Remember this: the government has no money of its own: what money it disperses it gets from individuals and businesses.)

‘I’m Just Quitting’

Tip of the iceberg I’m sure…
Coal Mine Owner Ronnie Bryant Tells Feds – ‘I’m Just Quitting’ | TheBlaze.com.

“Nearly every day without fail…men stream to these [mining] operations looking for work in Walker County. They can’t pay their mortgage. They can’t pay their car note. They can’t feed their families. They don’t have health insurance. And as I stand here today, I just…you know…what’s the use? I got a permit to open up an underground coal mine that would employ probably 125 people. They’d be paid wages from $50,000 to $150,000 a year. We would consume probably $50 million to $60 million in consumables a year, putting more men to work. And my only idea today is to go home. What’s the use? I see these guys—I see them with tears in their eyes—looking for work. And if there’s so much opposition to these guys making a living, I feel like there’s no need in me putting out the effort to provide work for them. So…basically what I’ve decided is not to open the mine. I’m just quitting. Thank you.”
