Subject: Please, somebody pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!
Peter Davies, the Mayor of Doncaster is enjoying increasing media exposure because of his "outrageous" agenda which, against all the tenets of consensual British politics, consists of doing what the public wants.
In his first week in office he cut his own salary from £73,000 to £30,000, which is putting one’s money where one’s mouth is.
He also scrapped the mayoral limousine. He is ending Doncaster’s twinning with five towns around the world, an arrangement which he describes as “just for people to fly off and have a binge at the council’s expense”.
He intends to reduce council tax by 3 per cent this year.
The “diversity” portfolio has been abolished from the council’s cabinet.
From next year no more funding will be given to the town’s “Gay Pride” event, on the grounds that people do not need to parade their sexuality at taxpayers’ expense.
Black History Month, International Women’s Day and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month are similarly destined to become history.
Council funding of translation services for migrants has been scrapped because he believes they should take the trouble to learn English.
Officials have been ordered to abandon bureaucratic gobbledegook language.
Davies is saving the taxpayers £80,000 by disaffiliating from the Local Government Association and the Local Government Information Unit.
He aims to abolish all nonjobs on the council, such as “community cohesion officers”.
He is taking advice from the Taxpayers’ Alliance and the Campaign Against Political Correctness.
He disregards all “green claptrap” and is creating more parking spaces to encourage traffic in the town for the benefit of business.
He has asked the Electoral Commission to reduce the number of Doncaster’s councillors from 63 to 21 (”If Pittsburgh can manage with nine councillors, why do we need 63?”).
You may be feeling disorientated, overcome by a surreal sensation, on hearing such extraordinary, unprecedented views. They are the almost forgotten, forcibly extinguished voice of sanity which most people had thought forever excised from British politics.
These policies are common sense, which is something we have not experienced in any council chamber, still less the House of Commons, in decades.
The establishment is moving heaven and earth to discredit and obstruct Davies.
He is the ultimate political embarrassment. If it is good enough for Doncaster however, it is good enough for Britain. Our politically correct politicians must be compelled to follow suit. There has to be an inflexible public will to enforce the country’s wishes on the political class under pain of ejection from public life. That should be the sole agenda for the next general election.
The mainstream parties, as currently constituted, are no longer electable.

Subject: A reply to Obama's black friend at Harvard
(Fred Reed is not usually very circumspect in his choice of words, so I have edited this a bit.
If you decide to look at his site, be ready for rough language! - Bro. Buddy)
For those who aren’t up to date, this is the Harvard professor that got arrested by Cambridge Police the other week .
Fred Reed was a police reporter for one of the large Washington newspapers. He now writes a column which can be googled ~ "Fred on Everything."
Fred published a weekly online column in which he got to say the things his editors would never, ever have let him write in the paper. His stuff is iconoclastic and various articles have probably offended everyone...regardless of political orientation. So, with the warning that "This is definitely not politically correct," here comes Fred..... The following is an essay regarding the failings of a system and a culture. Please note that he elegantly describes the mood of many Americans and he does so without prejudice.
Slavery Reparations Fred Reed!
On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites pay reparations to blacks. It's because of slavery, see. He is joined in this endeavor by a gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess he'll send me a bill, huh?
I feel like saying, "Let me get this straight, Hank. I'm slow. Be patient. You want free money because of slavery, right? I don't blame you." I'd like free money too. Tell you what. I believe in justice. I'll give you a million dollars for every slave I own, and another million for every year you were a slave. Fair enough? But tell me, how many slaves do you suppose I have? In round numbers, I mean...say to the nearest dozen. And how long were you a slave?
Oh. In other words, I owe you reparations for something that I didn't do and didn't happen to you. That makes sense. Like lug nuts on a birthday cake.
Personally, I think you owe me reparations for things you didn't do and never happened to me. I've never been coated in Dutch chocolate and thrown from the Eiffel Tower. I'll bet you've never done it to anyone. I want reparations. Kind of silly, isn't it?
But if we're going to talk about reparations, that's a street that runs in two directions. You want money from me for what some other whites did to some other blacks in another century?
How about you guys paying whites reparations for current expenses caused by blacks? Not long ago blacks burned down half of Los Angeles, a city in my country. Cities are expensive, Hank. Build one sometime and you'll see what I mean. Whites had to pay taxes to repair Los Angeles for you. You can send me a check.
Now, yes, I know you burned LA because you didn't like the verdict in the trial of those police officers... Well, I didn't like the verdict in the Simpson trial. But I didn't burn my house and loot Korean grocers, or burn down a city.
Over the years blacks have burned a lot of American cities: Newark, Detroit, Watts, on and on. Now add in the fantastic cost over the years of welfare in all its forms, the cost of all of those police calls people had to make, for cells and jails and security systems in department stores. I can't live in the capital city of my own country because of crime committed by blacks. Toss in the cultural cost of lowering standards in everything for the benefit of blacks. See what I mean? Now, I'd view things differently if you said to me, "Fred, blacks can't get anywhere in a modern country without education. We know that. We need better schools, smarter teachers, harder courses, books with smaller pictures and bigger words. Can you help us?"
I'd say, "YES!!! Let's sell
an aircraft carrier and get these folks some real schools and get them into the economic main-stream." I'd say it partly because it would be the right thing to do, and partly, because I'd like to add you guys to the tax base.
The current custodial state is expensive. I'd just love for blacks to study and learn to compete and stop burning places. But is it going to happen? You may not believe it, but I, and most whites, don't like seeing blacks as miserable and screwed up as they are.
Spend a fair amount of time in the projects. Those places are ugly. It's no fun watching perfectly good kids turn into semi-literate dope dealers who barely speak English. It just plain ain't right. But, Hank, what am I supposed to do about it? I can't do your children's homework. At some point, people have to do things for themselves, or they don't get done. Maybe it's time.
I'll tell you what I see out in the world, Hank... I think blacks are too accustomed to getting anything they want by just demanding it. True, it has worked for over half a century. Get a few hundred people in the street, implicitly threaten to loot and burn, holler about slavery, and sadly, the Great White Cash Spigot turns on.
Thing is, whites don't much buy it any longer. Most recognize that what once was a civil-rights movement has become a shakedown game. Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies of blacks. Political correctness keeps the lid on -- but everyone knows the score. Which scares me, Hank.
On one hand, blacks hate whites and incline toward looting and burning. (The whites you hate are the ones who marched in the civil-rights movement. Ever think about that?)
On the other hand, whites quietly grow wearier and wearier of it. Not good Hank.
On the third hand (allow me three hands, for rhetorical convenience), blacks keep demanding things. As I write, you demand reparations for slavery. Blacks in Oklahoma(I think it was) want money for some ancient race riot. Other blacks reject the Declaration of Independence , blacks in New York hint broadly at burning and looting over a trial, yet more demand the elimination of the Confederate flag, and the federal equal opportunity apparatus, which means blacks, want to sue Silicon Valley for not hiring nonexistent black engineers. That's a lot of demanding for one month, Hank. What happens if whites ever say, "No"?
Now, how about you? You've got a cushy job up there at Harvard, and you can hoot and holler about what swine and bandits whites are. I guess it's lots of fun, and you get a salary for it to boot. But don't you think you might do blacks more good if you told them to complain less and study more?
For example, if you want blacks to work in Silicon Gulch, the best approach might be to find some really smart black guys, and get them to study digital design ~ not Black Studies (as you teach). That's how everybody else does it. It works. Then blacks wouldn't feel left out, and racial tensions would decline. Sound like a plan?
Just out of curiosity, how many hours a week do professors of Afro-American Studies spend in the projects, encouraging poor black kids to study real life sho-nuf subjects?

New Era for LGBT Rights?

Has Obama Ushered in a New Era for LGBT Rights?
President Obama's speech this past weekend made it "abundantly clear" that America is looking at "a new era for civil rights for LGBT people," said one gay rights advocate.
Mon, Oct. 12, 2009 Posted: 05:26 PM EDT
President Obama's speech this past weekend made it "abundantly clear" that America is looking at "a new era for civil rights for LGBT people," said one gay rights advocate.
The address on Saturday at an event hosted by the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organization "drew a clear line in the sand for the world to see: this administration believes in and will work with the LGBT community and our allies to achieve full equality under the law for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans," said Mitchell Gold, founder of nonreligious organization Faith in America.
"President Obama’s presence and words represented his recognition that LGBT people are a normal part of our diverse society."
It was an evening of standing ovations and loud applause as thousands of gay rights supporters heard Obama say he is on their side. He called LGBT people his friends and assured them that despite some of the pressing issues, including the economy, on his desk he remains "unwavering" in his commitment to them.
"We cannot and we will not put aside issues of basic equality," Obama said at the Human Rights Campaign's 13th Annual National Dinner. "This fight continues now. And I'm here with a simple message: I'm here with you in that fight."
Many are hailing Obama as the first U.S. president to express such strong commitment to the LGBT people.
HRC president Joe Solmonese stated, "This was a historic night when we felt the full embrace and commitment of the President of the United States. It’s simply unprecedented." During his speech Saturday, Obama said his administration is "moving ahead" on the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which bans gays and lesbians from serving openly in the armed forces. He promised to sign into law an inclusive hate crimes bill, which would expand federal protection to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people; push the Employment Non- Discrimination Act; and repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
The issue of marriage drew out the most emotion and applause from the crowd. Obama noted that when they look back over the years of his administration, they will "see a time in which we as a nation finally recognized relationships between two men or two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman."
Obama also made it no secret that he wants to go beyond policy changes and change hearts. "There are still fellow citizens...good and decent people who hold fast to outworn arguments and old attitudes who fail to see your families like their families," he said. "Are we a nation that can transcend old attitudes and worn divides?"
While it was no surprise that Obama would address HRC members, conservatives were shocked to hear Obama promise what they consider "radical cultural changes." Prominent evangelical and Southern Baptist theologian R. Albert Mohler Jr. said Obama's words "represent a moral revolution that goes far beyond what any other President has ever promised or articulated."
"It is virtually impossible to imagine a promise more breathtaking in its revolutionary character than this – to normalize same-sex relationships to the extent that they are recognized as being as admirable as heterosexual marriage," the seminary president commented.
Following Obama’s remarks, Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, similarly said it was clear from the speech that Obama's goal is not simply equal legal rights but rather "to overturn millennia of moral teaching that has acknowledged the harms of homosexual conduct and the unique benefits of marriage between a man and a woman."
He further called the president out for neglecting to mention that “all of this will be forced on the American people who in the last election gave the President a mandate to fix the economy – not enact radical social policy changes such as allowing homosexuals to serve in the military."
“President Obama tried to hide his pro-homosexual agenda during the presidential campaign. With the election behind him and a liberal Congress beside him, he is now positioned to move forward an agenda with the ultimate goal of redefining marriage at the expense of religious liberty,” he said.
In a statement Sunday, Perkins' organization vowed to work to defeat Obama administration's legislative strategy and to continue to promote policies that strengthen traditional marriage and religious liberty for generations to come.
Last week, the Pew Research Center revealed in a study that the majority of Americans (53 percent) oppose gay marriage while 39 percent favor it. The statistics have remained almost unchanged when compared to 2003. Moreover, 49 percent consider homosexual behavior morally wrong. At the same time, 64 percent believe gays and lesbians face more discrimination than any other group.
The study, however, demonstrated that attitudes may be changing as younger generations show more support than older Americans for LGBT people. More than half of 18- to 29-yearolds (58 percent) support gay marriage, compared to 38 percent of 30- to 49-year-olds and 35 percent of Americans aged 50-64. Additionally, the younger generation is less likely to say homosexual behavior is morally wrong compared to older adults.
Results for the survey were based on telephone interviews conducted among a nationwide sample of 4,013 adults, 18 years of age or older.

The political high drama of the Coalition's internal battle is a microcosm of how the climate change issue is playing out in the real world.
It was no surprise Kevin Andrews lost yesterday's vote to call a leadership spill for the Liberal Party.
But he made a fair fist of it, getting 42 per cent of the vote, despite being a surprise fringe candidate never previously considered for leadership.
Andrews also made a fair fist of explaining the rationale behind his run, stating the obvious truth that Liberals fare best electorally when combining economic liberalism with social conservatism.
The majority opinion of the party room, as opposed to Malcolm Turnbull's locked-in shadow cabinet, was that the Senate should "reject or postpone" the Government's carbon pollution reduction legislation and send it to a Senate committee to evaluate the impact of the most significant piece of economic re-engineering in Australia's history.
It would have provided some transparency for voters, and Turnbull and the Coalition breathing room, and denied the Prime Minister his prize for the Copenhagen climate summit next month.
To Andrews, partyroom opposition to the scheme was simply "reflecting a clear view of Liberal Party members, supporters and members of the public" about the consequences of this heavy new tax.
Politicians should "respect ... the wishes of the Australian people".
What a refreshing thought.
The political high drama of the Coalition's internal battle is a microcosm of how the climate change issue is playing out in the real world.
After a long period in which a lazy public contented itself with trusting politicians and the climate "experts", it has woken to find all is not as it seemed.
Armageddon is not nigh.
The planet has been cooling for almost a decade and the fabled climate computer models never predicted that.
And now damning emails leaked from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia have implicated some famous climate scientists in a conspiracy to manipulate data and suppress evidence to exaggerate the case man-made "runaway" global warming is threatening the planet.
We see clearly the rotten heart of the propaganda machine that has driven the world to the brink of insanity on the eve of the Copenhagen climate summit.
Over 1000 emails and 3000 documents, covering correspondence between climate scientists for more than a decade, was posted on a Russian website with a link to the climate sceptic blog Air Vent on November 17, by someone using the name FOIA (presumably after the Freedom of Information Act).
FOIA wrote: "We feel that climate science is, in the current situation, too important to be kept under wraps.
"We hereby release a random selection of correspondence, code, and documents. Hopefully it will give some insight into the science and the people behind it."
We knew but never before had seen such proof of bad faith, overwhelming in its small detail, its shameless dishonesty, its meanness, its totalitarian tactics, pouncing on every deviation from The Word, as handed down by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The head of the agenda-setting Climate Research Unit, Phil Jones, in an email to Ray Bradley, Michael Mann, and Malcolm Hughes, the American scientists who created the now discredited "hockey stick" graphs which claim to show rapidly escalating temperatures is quoted thus:

"I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e. from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline."
Mann, in another email dated Oct 27, 2009, writes:

"As we all know, this isn't about truth at all, it's about plausibly deniable accusations."
Phil Jones writes in another email about his alarm over new freedom of information laws, as he has been trying to block FOI requests for monthly global surface temperature data from retired Canadian statistician Steve McIntyre, the editor of the sceptic blog Climate Audit.

"The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I'll delete the file rather than send to anyone ..."
The fact it was a retired statistician and not a news organisation pounding the FOI requests which precipitated this flood of information is a sad reflection on the state of journalism.
There is also a revolting email from Jones to Mann, describing the premature death from a heart attack of Tasmanian author and climate sceptic John L. Daly as "cheering news!"
Mann, in another email, maps out a plan to ruin a journal, Climate Research which has published sceptic papers.
"So what do we do about this? I think we have to stop considering Climate Research as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal.
Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues in the climate research community to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal."
Another email to Mann, from Kevin Trenberth, an IPCC lead author on October 12, titled "BBC U-turn on climate," states: "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't ... Our observing system is inadequate."
The good thing is people can now see the tactics of the alarmists and their army of bovver boys.
You can read the emails online and then you can read the sly attempts to explain away the misdeeds.
Despite their feigned reasonableness and world-weary calm over the email scandal, climate alarmists are in a mad fumbling panic.
They are exposed as dangerous megalomaniacs, foolish, but with enormous power.
Their power came from the complicity of the media and because it suited a certain type of politician to build a new bureaucracy and pose as an environmental saviour, never having to face up to the consequences of being wrong.
