Sundry Musings

"Conservative" Kansas Senator Sam Brownback, a darling of religious conservatives, has introduced a resolution apologizing to "Native Americans" for their brutal mistreatment at the hands of evil, wicked, depraved Europeans.

The resolution recognizes "a long history of official depredations and ill-conceived policies by the United States Government" and describes the Native Americans as "spiritual peoples with a deep and abiding belief in the Creator." Perhaps the first step on the road to reparations? Don't you just love "Christians" like Brownback who are so politically correct that they are willing to spit on their ancestors?

Maybe I just missed this story, or perhaps it has been buried, but a U.S. Dept. of Ed. study shows that 1 in 10 children are abused by a teacher or school employee. And here I thought it was only homosexual priests that abused children.

According to a study from the Pew Hispanic Center, 28.5% of all jobs created in the last year were snatched up by illegal aliens. According to Rakesh Kochbar, who prepared the report, "The proportion of jobs captured by non-citizens was...much larger than their share of overall employment." Interestingly, the median weekly earnings for Hispanics dropped during the same period from $402 to $395. Wow, you mean incoming immigrants depress wages?? Who would have thought that?
