Swedish Feminist Party Wants To End Marriage

RedState.org has a post to a story about the Swedish Feminist Party, and their push for the abolition of marriage. Mark my words, this is where gay marriage will take us here in the United States if we continue to allow fringe ideologies to drive public policy.

Now, I realize a lot of you may not get the connection, so I encourage you to look at the statistics in Netherlands, and other countries where gay marriage is the norm--marriage is on the decline. I don't care what you think, declining marriages is NOT good for a society. And yes, the divorce trends in this country are just as alarming and socially speaking, just as harmful. I realize many of you may have gone through divorce, and I don't know what that feels like.

But, talking strictly about social cause-and-effect, a propagation of divorce as the solution to break downs in relationship (or poor choice of spouse in the first place) is detrimental to society and to future generations. Take a look at New Orleans--I am no scientist, but I would bet you will find a HIGH rate of children with single parents. I heard John McWhorter on the Laura Ingraham show a couple days ago, where he said that 73% of births in Louisiana are born to unwed mothers. The point is that the further breakdown of marriage will have real and detrimental harm to ALL of society--economically, socially, and culturally.
In a social welfare state such as Sweden, the continual urge to tinker becomes irresistible. Although this might qualify as a bit more than tinkering. The Copenhagen Post highlights a report that a new political party, The Swedish Feminist Initiative (Swedish, "Feministiskt initiativ") has announced as an aim the legislative abolition of marriage.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…
