Teresa Lloro-Bidart, an associate professor of liberal studies
California State Polytechnic University Pomona, argues in a
recent paper that eastern fox squirrels are subjected to a
"gendered, racialized, and speciesist" form of media bias.
 
| Given that the shift in tree squirrel demographics is a
| relatively recent phenomenon, this case presents a unique
| opportunity to question and retheorize the ontological given of
| 'otherness' that manifests, in part, through a politics whereby
| animal food choices '[come] to stand in for both compliance and
| resistance to the dominant forces in [human] culture'. I,
| therefore, juxtapose feminist posthumanist theories and feminist
| food studies scholarship to demonstrate how eastern fox squirrels
| are subjected to gendered, racialized, and speciesist thinking in
| the popular news media as a result of their feeding/eating
| practices, their unique and unfixed spatial arrangements in the
| greater Los Angeles region, and the western, modernist human
| frame through which humans interpret these actions.
|
|
The paper is is titled, "When 'Angelino' squirrels don't eat
nuts: a feminist posthumanist politics of consumption across
southern California," It argues that humans are responsible for
"otherizing" eastern fox squirrels.

> "The erosion of white men, white voters without college degrees and independent voters, the declaration by voters that President Donald Trump's first 100 days were mainly a failure and deepening concerns about Trump's honesty, intelligence and level headedness are red flags that the administration simply can't brush away," Malloy added.
 
You respond with poll numbers and name calling.
 
I read Will's article. He makes accusations that have been effectively
challenged without acknowledging those challenges.
George Will is being dishonest.
 
Several intelligent people, including leaders of other countries,
when finally having a conversation with President Trump discover
he has a good grasp of situations and asks intelligent questions.
Benjamin Netanyahu is one. Condoleeza Rice is the most recent
to change her mind.

This is another effective challenge to George Will's thesis.
 
President Trump does not address himself to the doctrinaire.
President Trump does not address himself to you or to George Will.
 
| It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about
| President Trump's inability to do either. This seems to be not a
| mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result

This lead paragraph of George Will's article says exactly what
I say it does.

In summer of 2016 James Comey discolsed charges against and
unindicted person. That is wrong. He said that no prosecution
would take place. It is not in his authority to say so. He
silently forwards the facts of the investigation to the Deputy
Attorney General for disposition.
 
The question is: Why did President Obama not fire James Comey?

It is inexcusable that Comey learned of his fate from the news media.
That takes a lot of gall, and that's really not a quality I want from a
POTUS who has his finger on the button.

Just like it's possible to conclude that Russia is our greatest geopolitical foe and that we should do anything to stop them but at the same time consider that Russia should be our friends and let them do what they want in their region.

Yes, sort of.

Depends on which Vikings. The Danes were also Vikings, yet they carved
out a kingdom in England and stayed there, forever. The Norwegians mixed
with local Celts in the Hebrides and created a new race of people called
the Gall Gael that would eventually come to dominate the Irish Sea area
and founded the Kingdom of the Isles in the Highlands which rivaled early
Scotland and England in both strength and size. Dublin was one of their
cites in Ireland.

Yes. You know that Marine Le Pen got there first?

The left has told us for eight long years that federal debt is good for the economy and the country.

No, jim. Not good at all. Necessary to dig us out of the hole 6 years of unchecked GOP rule landed us in, at best.
 
2001 - 2007 were bad - almost bizarrely bad - years for this country. Took a pretty big injection to get things moving again.
 
The counter-proposal floated by the right? Austerity? Based on a single spreadsheet with massaged data:

No, be skeptical, especially when there is a consensus.
