WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

Good intensions of "real" Christians...

...have been proven not to work yet some still insist that the only answer to every societal problem is higher taxes. The problem is what do you do if your state already has one of the highest tax rates in the country?

I personally have a problem with the Catholic Church relaying on liberal governments to cure the problems that the same liberal governments help create. I also find it curious that the Catholic Church would support governments that advocate policies that clearly run afoul of the teachings of the Catechism. As far as I can see, the bible teaches us to share what's ours, not to take it from others to make us feel better.

One sure way to solve the "poverty problem" is better education. But the left again thinks that better education always means more money. When real solution are offered, the "real" Christians like our governor Kulongoski, a self-proclaimed Catholic, reject them. No wonder American employers are closing their doors and moving elsewhere. High taxes and over-regulation don't help either.

When I went to high-school in Poland, I had 6 hours of math and 6 hour of physics every week for all 4 years. To graduate, I had to take a written exam in Polish, math and physics, and oral in English. Nobody cared about people who failed. Today, the Chinese, Indians, Koreans still don't care. Their schools are geared to produce highly educated workforce. As long as Americans is unwilling to admit that some children will do much better than others and that many will fail, we will not be able to compete with Asians without "importing" brain power from other countries. So far, we only import the worst of the worst through illegal immigration. Our public schools spend a lot of money to cater to those and other "special-needs" students and fail to concentrate on the more gifted ones.

Also, universities in the US waste money on unnecessary and even harmful programs instead of dedicating most resources to educate high-quality engineers:
PORTLAND — An early draft of a five-year "diversity plan" for the University of Oregon has drawn a firestorm of criticism from faculty, prompting administrators to distance themselves from the proposal.

The draft plan, billed as a "long-term vision for diversity," called for the university to hire up to 40 faculty members by 2012 to teach courses in a "cluster" of diversity-related topics, including race, gender, gay and disability studies.

Under the plan, academic departments that hew closely to the university's diversity goals when hiring would be given "priority in the funding of new positions."

The plan also would mandate that faculty up for promotions or tenure be evaluated on their "cultural competency" — the ability to successfully work with people from all cultural backgrounds. Traditionally, research, publications and teaching have been the key elements of a tenure review.

This is just crazy.
