FEMA Breaks Promise on Katrina Contracts, John Kerry Demands FEMA Award Gulf Coast Contracts to Small Businesses

AP News has reported that FEMA “has broken its promise to reopen four multimillion-dollar no-bid contracts for Hurricane Katrina work, including three that federal auditors say wasted significant amounts of money.” John Kerry is calling on the Bush Administration to fulfill its commitment, made last October, to award $1.5 billion in federal contracts to small […]

Red State Hatred

Now that he’s been exiled back to RedState Domenech blames his firing not on being exposed for plaigerism but for the attacks from leftists. Before Demenech complains of hatred he should first look in the mirror. As I noted earlier, the real problem with his blog was not that it presented a conservative viewpoint but […]

R.I. Bans Abstinence-Only Program from Schools, Calls for Moratorium on Federal Funding

Kudos to the Rhode Island Department of Education who announced today that they have banned an abstinence-only-until-marriage program from their public schools. The program has been found to “violate students’ rights, embrace sexist stereotypes, isolate GLBT youth, and, in accompanying materials, promulgate religious views.” They are also calling on “Congress to declare an immediate moratorium […]

The Real Problem with Red America

There’s been quite an uproar over Red America, including charges of plagiarism and questions of fairness. I don’t think any of these arguments are really what is making liberals upset. The real problem is the adversarial tone of Domenech’s blog. Domenech started his blog with an attack on the left and claims, which I previously […]
