  • "Even on campuses with large gay student groups, for example, openly gay male athletes are a rarity — and pretty much unheard of in football and basketball. Fans at universities that take pride in their inclusive campus environments think little of taunting Duke University basketball players with anti-gay slurs. At the University of Virginia, students debate why many of them feel obliged to assert their heterosexuality with a cheer at a key point when the song that follows Cavalier touchdowns makes a reference to “gay”"
  • On whether or not an Arizona judge overstepped his bounds by proclaiming the State of Arizona is obligated to actually adequately fund English as a Second Language classes.

    My verdict: "Whitey court equals whitey justice"

  • "Ninety-three years on, it is important to recognise that the ideals of the Easter Rising and the Proclamation have not been realised.

    Ireland is forcibly partitioned, the British government remains in occupation of the north-east of the country and the people of Ireland do not yet own Ireland, as promised in the Proclamation. Instead, Ireland and its resources are held by a greedy clique of business people, whose garrison is the political class, north and south, and the forces of the British and Twenty-Six County states."
