Re: “Americans might finally be learning something

Re: "We've also learned that if one media organization gets one story about campus rape horribly wrong, it completely invalidates every woman's story about being raped."

Why did you lie about this? Show me the link to the study verifying your statement -- and not a link to a politicized feminist group.

I recommend:

"The Sexual Harassment Quagmire: How To Dig Out" http://malemattersusa.wordpress.com/2011/1…

It's a detailed look at what I think is the sexes' most alienating and destructive behavioral difference, which is responsible for much of what is called sexual assault of women.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Nice sexist try. White men are not turning on women. If turning on anyone, they are turning on the politicized feminists (both female AND male) who are anti-male. They are tired of the sexism directed at them.

These men are no worse than the feminists at, say, Jezebel.com, or the feminists at the Guardian, such as Jessica Valenti.

For a different view on GamerGate, see Cathy Young's "Misandry in the GamerGate Controversy" http://reason.com/archives/2014/11/01/misa…

"But this backlash is not directed at women, who are already a strong presence in the gaming world. (Today, more than half of role-playing videogame players are female, as a third of those playing in massive multiplayer online games.) Nor it is directed at female-oriented content in videogames, where female protagonists—or ones whose gender can be customized by the player—are hardly a rarity. Its target is a narrow brand of feminism that not all women and not all feminists espouse—one that does not simply champion equality and inclusion, but sees modern Western culture as permeated by patriarchy and views male "sexualization" of women as inherently oppressive."

"The feminism of male demonization and female victimhood has become an insidious force that, despite its faux-progressive trappings, stands in the way of genuine equality. Whatever its flaws, GamerGate is a politically diverse movement of cultural resistance to this brand of toxic feminism."

Please stop painting your "men bad, women wonderful" picture. Please stop your sexism, in other words.

Here's what you don't know and don't want to know:

Re: “The GOP scores big with Obamacare

Here's what worries me most about Obamacare once it's in full swing:

"People respond to incentives, although not necessarily in ways that are predictable or manifest. Therefore, one of the most powerful laws in the universe is the law of unintended consequences." -From the book "SuperFreakonomics"

With that in mind, see:

"Obamacare: Making a bad situation worse"

Re: “It's time to scrap the Affordable Care Act and start over

This is what worries me:
