Re: “Tucson High's Chican@s Social Justice Club Wants Your Help

""The Mexican-American (Hispanic) is a person who lacks respect for his/her cultural and ethnic heritage. Unsure of her/himself, she/he seeks assimilation as a way out of her/his "degraded" social status. Consequently, she/he remains politically ineffective. In contrast, Chicanismo reflects self-respect and pride on one's ethnic and cultural background. Thus, the Chicana/o acts with confidence and with a range of alternatives in the political world. She/he is capable of developing an effective ideology through action"

from their website: http://www.nationalmecha.org/about.html

Just how does that make you politically ineffective? You want to demand government favors based on race? Ask the 30% of black youths that are unemployed, how that's working out for them.

Rule number one: American politicians are not elected to promote or advance a certain race. (1) We have one vote and it is about Americans first.

(1) Not withstanding Raul Grijalva.

Re: “UPDATE: TUSD Students, Legal Team Kick Ass in 9th Circuit Hearing Challenging Law Banning Mexican American Studies

Why are ethnic studies only for Mexican-American students? Why do Mexican-Americans need this class to prop them up? What happens when the minority becomes the majority? I have no faith in the 9th circus court the most reversed and chastised court in the US.

Guys, help me out, where is the tea-bagger blog where progressives are allowed to say " Chris Christie is just a big fat slob and not a viable candidate" or such?

Re: “Science on Screen: "The Unbelievers" at The Loft Tonight

Mike, If I was to say that "I know for a fact that God exists" would you believe me, of course not. But regardless of what you and countless others would say in regards to my statement doesn't alter what I know to be the truth. I could state how he delivered me from death . But you wouldn't believe it. Non the less we will all be given the opportunity to find out the answer to that question if God truly exist or not, or do you believe that death is also a myth thought of in an ancient book composed of fantasies.

Dave-
That is the most nonsensical thing I've ever heard. The whole point of their endeavors is to show that there wasn't one who was "capable of doing so." Arguments from personal incredulity aren't arguments.

CBO a fair forecaster? You must have forgotten their admission of massive blunders in estimating costs of the ACA.

I'm sure you did.

Presumably the majority of us will agree about the importance of science and reason in the modern world. But how does reason and science support their metaphysical beliefs?

Maybe these two guy's should put their two heads together and create another world. Now that would be impressive. Til then, my knee will bend to the only one who was capable of doing so.
