Social Justice Movement Ought to Recognize Human Rights for Unborn Children

The modern social justice movement can be described as a loose union of movements that oppose institutionalized injustice in various forms—racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and many more. It’s seen as a single movement because all forms of oppression share certain characteristics: most importantly, that they are systems of injus…

Sarah Palin Supports Conservative Soldier with Social Media Blitz

Sarah Palin clearly took note of the story about an Army master sergeant who’s reportedly been told, among other things, that he’s not allowed to read books by conservative authors—including Sean Hannity, David Limbaugh, and Mark Levin—while in uniform.

@BarackObama falsely claims amnesty will strengthen Social Security over the long term

That claim, tweeted yesterday by Organizing For Action’s @BarackObama Twitter account, is based on the Social Security Administration’s “preliminary analysis” of the effects of amnesty on Social Security’s finances.

Unfortunately, as Andrew Biggs of the American Enterprise Institute observes,  the SSA analysis “measures Social Security’s finances over a short, 10-year window, in which new immigrants are paying taxes but largely prohibited from collecting benefits. Afterward, they will start collecting benefits. Counting only the first 10 years obviously doesn’t tell the full story. This is the same accounting problem conservatives spotted with Obamacare, and they shouldn’t ignore it here.”

In one year’s time, Knutson, now 36 years old, exchanged 26,986 text messages and phone calls – an average of 70 per day – with one of his 14-year-old female students, according to the Omaha World Herald. He exchanged almost as many messages with other 13- to 15-year-old girls at Nathan Hale Middle School where he worked.

Clown Jay Carney: Obama’s social media machine is ‘independent’ from Obama

Over the weekend, The New York Times (yes, that New York Times) reported that Organizing for Action, Obama’s rebooted campaign arm, has been selling White House access to donors who pledge at least $ 500,000. And, when confronted about the report today, simpering Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted that OFA is just an “independent organization”:

Right. An “independent organization” that — purely coincidentally, of course — runs the official @BarackObama Twitter account:
