Affirmative Action: The Fiscally-Conservative Choice and An Inconvenient Truth

In Articles on September 1, 2014 at 1:59 pm
Affirmative-Action-demonstration

There’s a choice conservatives must make on Affirmative Action, one affecting the next 100 years: theoretic principles or pragmatic success

 

NEW YORK CITY/ PITTSBURGH (April 24, 2014) – (Courtesy Global Grind)

 

“Now that the dust has settled from Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling on Affirmative Action and the University of Michigan’s admissions process – especially as it is being viewed (again) as more of a political statement from a partisan-leaning court than a legal analysis from our highest court – I feel free to speak politically about this controversial legal decision.

 

“I know that this statement (and, thus, this reality) drives many hardcore conservatives nuts. Me saying this statement will elicit more calls that I am a “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) or a “spy for the Democrats” that “race-baits”. I’m sure that this admission concerning Affirmative Action will not necessarily help my cache within Republican circles or my bottom line as a political commentator.

 

“That said, I care more about this nation and our future than I do about labels and popularity. So, therefore, here it goes…

 

“Fellow conservatives: whether you choose to admit it or not, affirmative action is the more conservative solution of the two in today’s America when choosing between an avenue for opportunity or a continuation of the economic implosion of our nation.

 

“Education is the gateway to the American Dream for the individual. Education is the weapon of choice in today’s geopolitical environment, one where wars are fought through technology, international trade, and economic pressures before the first bullet is fired. Whether it is through altruistic vision or self-serving patriotism, it is imperative that talents from all corners of our nation are discovered, embraced, and utilized immediately. With the rising costs of higher education and the increased obstacles in place due to the Great Recession, avenues of opportunity are vital to strengthen America to its peak ability at such a critical moment of history… Further, as a conservative, the choice goes past national sovereignty from a geopolitical perspective. America will not survive as a nanny-state country where a growing number of its residents are depending on government for financial support, whether that includes struggling families or businesses alike…If my conservative brethren want to reduce the cost of government and increase the role of the individual in the success of our communities as a whole (e.g., the “smaller government, bigger people” approach I have been noting) while regaining our esteem and prowess internationally, Affirmative Action cannot be hacked away at. It’s a simple choice: “pay” for the inconvenience of Affirmative Action for another 25-35 years (in the shadows of 100 years of Jim Crow policies that followed up the centuries-long institution of slavery) or risk paying for (literally) the devolving of America by way of the growth of the permanent underclass – a combination of economic, healthcare, and community realities often cemented by race.”

PITTSBURGH (February 14, 2014) – (As presented on the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel)

Our Starting Point tonight focuses on the economy one week after experiencing what I have deemed “Disappointment Friday”

What is Disappointment Friday? Well during the Great Recession , Disappointment Friday has been that first Friday of the month when the jobs reports come out from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Just when able-bodied Americans across the nation are hoping that the new month will bring them better economic futures, we find out that job creation is slow, work force participation is low, and hopes and dreams seem to be slipping away.

Yet, there are some that will tell you that the unemployment rate is actually going down and has been for several months now. They will also say that over 3 years of continuous job growth is nothing to sneeze at. They point to Wall Street gains and record profits by many corporations since 2008.

Yet, for the 75,000 jobs added in December and the 113,000 jobs added last month, we find 100s of thousands of Americans dropping out of the work force.

So either we’re headed in the right direction and turning the tide in America or we’re simply not.

75,000 added jobs would be sufficient – for Pennsylvania alone – but it doesn’t seem to be enough for our hurting economy nationally.

If this is a recovery – 113,000 jobs to start off 2014, I don’t want to see what happens if we slip into another recession.

That’s our Starting Point. Make your point by tweeting us at @NightTalkGTTPLM.
