The Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff was founded in 1941 and is the longest continually operating political organization of its kind in the area. The WRC exists to assist local, state and national Republican candidates win elective office; to assist elected Republican officeholders with constituent interface and to educate all voters on issues important to the maintenance of our Constitutional republic and the social and economic vitality of Illinois and our local communities.
Consistent with the written Illinois and National GOP platforms, the WRC supports reverence for the United States Constitution and the rule of law, and the traditional, American values protecting human life, personal liberty and responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness in any lawful sphere of endeavor.
The WRC does not support the increasingly intrusive and dehumanizing interference of either state or federal governments that deny life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness including but not limited to: job-killing oppressive taxation and regulation, wasteful government spending, the cynical creation and maintenance of a permanent, government-dependent underclass, corporate cronyism, the governmental monopoly on education, denial of school choice, the redefinition of marriage and the trampling of religious liberty.
We understand that good Republicans—both voters and candidates and to sometimes widely varying degrees—do not necessarily agree with everything in the platform. We agree with Ronald Reagan, who famously said that the person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend, not a 20% traitor. If you agree with 80% of the GOP platform, you’re a friend. What’s more, you’re a Republican! So join us!

Marriage and Equal Protection
For the Court to strike down laws defining marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife would be to abolish the idea that men and women matter—equally—in the lives of the children they create. And it would be both a judicial usurpation of legislative authority and a federal intrusion into a matter left by the Constitution in the hands of the states.

Just another day in the American academy:
Saida Grundy is an incoming assistant professor of sociology and African-American studies at Boston University who identifies as a "feminist sociologist of race and ethnicity," according to her bio on the school's website.
Her tweets started to go viral after they were noticed by the website SoCawlege.com.

why is white america so reluctant to identify white college males as a problem population?
every mlk week I commit myself to not spending a dime in white-owned businesses, and every year I find it nearly impossible
Weird. Who'd have thought it'd be that difficult to find a Korean grocery store?
Defend Free Speech!

.....Do what the parochial hacks of the US media didn't bother to do, and look at the winning entry in Pam Geller's competition, ... It's by Bosch Fawstin, an Eisner Award-winning cartoonist and an ex-Muslim of Albanian stock. Like many of the Danish and French cartoons, it's less about Mohammed than about the prohibition against drawing Mohammed - and the willingness of a small number of Muslims to murder those who do, and a far larger number of Muslims both enthusiastic and quiescent to support those who kill. Mr Fawstin understands the remorseless logic of one-way multiculturalism - that it leads to the de facto universal acceptance of Islamic law. All that "Prophet Mohammed" stuff, now routine even on Fox News. He's not my prophet, he's just some dead bloke. But the formulation is now mysteriously standard in western media. Try it the other way round: "Isis News Network, from our Libyan correspondent: Warriors of the Caliphate today announced record attendance numbers for the mass beheading of followers of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ..."
University Launches Insult-Reporting System
by KATHERINE TIMPF May 14, 2015 12:11 PM
The University of Colorado-Boulder has launched an online system where students can report people who make “hurtful statements” — and it’s so intense that it even asks for offenders’ Social Security numbers. This “Bias Incident Reporting” system is intended to “address the impact of demeaning and hurtful statements as well as acts of intolerance directed towards protected classes,” according to the school’s website.
Bias reports are evaluated by the school’s “Bias Incident Response Team” which includes representatives from the office of the dean of students, the Office of Victim Assistance, and even the campus police. The reporting form asks for the meanie-head’s name, gender (better get it right!), e-mail, address, date of birth, phone number and student ID number (if the meanie-head is a student) or a Social Security and/or driver’s license number (if the meanie-head is someone else). It includes a link for “pre-authorized users” to obtain this information if they don’t have it, and the school promises to “track” and “document” all of the reports.
