Supreme Court abnormal? – This well written article by Leesa Donner in “Liberty Nation” rang a chord with me: What is a Normal US Supreme Court? – Liberty Nation. I have penned some thoughts about it below.
It is comically sad that the least “normal” president in American history is the one to question the “normalcy” of the Supreme Court.
Using the same manner of analysis of the malleable historic events that could have gone one way or the other, a judgement on the “normalcy” of the president could result. Over the past three years the United States has lost its way, tripped, and fallen many times, misinformed and damaged its citizens in ways that are beyond belief.
The message is one that “normal” people see as crazy, incoherent, and uncaring. Considering the state of mind and the actions of our president, based on the Donner analysis, Mr. Biden is a normal president. How sad is that? Just imagine the condition of the world if a “normal” Donald Trump were president instead. – Robert Orleck
Affirmative Action Axed for Merit – What provoked the Affirmative Action ruling of the Supreme Court? It was the admission policy of some of our elite colleges which required Asian Americans to score 140 points higher on their SAT, 270 points higher than Hispanics and 450 points higher than black students for acceptance.
Why are Asian-American’s excelling? They comprise 4% of the population yet more over the age of 25 have bachelor and advanced degrees than any other race or ethnic group. Contrary to the no-homework practice in public schools today, the school bell does not end the school day for Asian-American students. Their parents assume the role of educator after school and oversee homework assignments. They focus on positive reinforcement for a job well done whereas other parents today are oblivious to schooling or concentrate on preserving students’ self-esteem. Asian-American students perform better because their parents expect they will.
President Biden believes the SCOTUS’ decision to end discrimination is wrong. Congressional Democrats are exhibiting hysteria calling the decision a roadblock towards social justice. It was not! It should be a call for better education outcomes. Any admissions in our culture should be based on merit as Martin Luther King preached not the color of one’s skin. The sooner we abandon race/ethnic labels and threat everyone as Americans and equal the better our nation will be. – Frank Mazur, S. Burlington
