Anti-Obama Centered Feminism

This is an alluringly and gorgeously produced but positively goofy propaganda video which sides with both Clinton and Palin against Obama (with all the usual baseless smears against him thrown in for good measure). Read more

Judge This: Middle-Aged White Man And Impoverished Bangkok Girl

Could you describe the girl who sees with this perpsective as in love rather than exploited?  Can this be an ethically healthy relationship?  Is it formally very different from love-relationships oriented around economic security since the dawn of time?  Or do power, class, and wealth disparities destroy any possibility for moral requisites of free consent or relationship virtues of mutualness, equality, and reciprocity? More or less any poor Asian girl knows that if she lands a Westerner it means security…. Read more

Infidelity

In response to all the cheating in the news, Christian Progressive Liberal investigates: Well, I googled the word “infidelity” and I feared that my computer might crash from the results.  I mean, there are damned WEBSITES devoted to infidelity – how to get your respective swerves on outside your marriage; providing blueprints for cheating, etc.  But I wanted some facts. It is estimated that roughly 30 to 60% of all married individuals (in the United States) will engage in infidelity… Read more

Indian Beauty Queen Vocal Advocate For Gay Rights

Times of India blogger Celina Jaitley was both Miss India and a runner-up for Miss Universe in 2001.  She’s quite beautiful and so you should go to Box Turtle Bulletin to see her for yourself (they deserve the traffic, so go!) Via the BTB: “I became a part of the world of glamour at the very young age of 16. And not only since then, but somehow from childhood I have had gay friends and have been a part of… Read more

Friedman Trash Talks The Chinese

Friedman’s column makes the crucial point that being at the forefront of energy transformation is not just about heading off the consequences of global warming, it’s about being a global leader in the energy technologies which will dominate future markets: inevitably some young Chinese would say: “Hey, you Americans got to grow dirty for 150 years, using cheap coal and oil. Now it is our turn.” It’s a hard argument to refute. Eventually, I decided that the only way to… Read more

Obama’s 8-Year Strategy

Andrew Sullivan’s take on Obama’s long game, which frustrates the both the impatient on the left and the right: As he had once written when describing his strategy as a black man in a white world: no sudden moves. And we have seen none. Obama likes the system; he just wants to make it work for more people. Obama is also, at his core, a community organiser. Community organisers do not jump into a situation and start bossing people around…. Read more

Johann Hari Provides Background On Honduras

A really interesting read: On Sunday morning, a battalion of soldiers rammed their way into the Presidential Palace in Honduras. They surrounded the bed where the democratically elected President, Manuel Zelaya, was sleeping, and jabbed their machine guns to his chest. They ordered him to get up and marched him onto a military plane. They dumped him in his pyjamas on a landing strip in Costa Rica and told him never to return to the country that freely chose him… Read more

My Space Hoax Conviction Thrown Out

This is the case of the mother who impersonated an adolescent boy on MySpace in order to hurt a girl who was a rival of her daughter by leading her on and then rejecting her.  They succesfully prosecuted her on the grounds that she violated MySpace’s terms of service.   But the judge’s reasoning in overturning the verdict sounds wise: U.S. District Court Judge George Wu threw out the misdemeanor convictions of Lori Drew, the Missouri woman blamed for precipitating… Read more
