Instanity!

Our common sense, the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and our foundations of faith are under severe attack! This has compelled Kevin McGary to write about what he observes as a new era of illogical and completely irrational agendas dominating current U.S. government leadership. McGary presents a refreshing voice with compelling evidence that speaks to how 'we the people,' through 'blind trust' and lack of involvement, may have been wholly complicit in supporting the erosion of rights, liberties, and freedoms. He contends, collective zeal for a new era of 'hope and change' has prompted irrational support for government leadership made up of charismatic personalities grounded in the strategic use of masterful rhetoric infused with intellectual dishonesty, and devoid of substance needed to move the country forward. Through thoughtful analysis presented from multiple vantage points, McGary illuminates why and how a state of instant and selective insanity has permeated the current political spectrum. McGary is an African American with strong roots in voting democratic, and is a member of the NAACP. He confirms that while current party platforms and progressive agendas for healthcare, education and abortion have provided lofty rhetoric for the Democratic Party, they actually result in debilitating and oppressive social agendas and schemes that only perpetuate further enslavement of the 'under-privileged' and 'under-served!' He presents evidence confirming the actual social justice foundations proclaimed by our forefathers: 'life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness,' and their human rights proclamation: 'liberty and justice for all,' are even further undermined by current 'new era' politicians at the expense of the progressive agenda. In the end, McGary contends the U.S suffers from a lack of leadership in that there is a lack of competence and general lack of experience in the current administration. This has lead to a significant erosion of the primary foundations that have facilitated our history of success! Undermining of faith foundations and the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence threatens to propel the country back into the state of oppression and tyranny it fled when becoming an independent nation. Needless to say, supporting this cycle is irrational and illogical. Doing the same things over again yet expecting different results, is Alert Einstein's definition of insanity. The culmination of the facts surrounding our current direction and support of 'progressive' leadership are carefully presented as evidence of our general state of...instanity!

Customer Reviews
Data Analysis with SPSS is designed to teach students how to explore data in a systematic manner using the most popular professional social statistics program on the market today. Written in ten manageable chapters, this book first introduces students to the approach researchers use to frame research questions and the logic of establishing causal relations. Students are then oriented to the SPSS program and how to examine data sets. Subsequent chapters guide them through univariate analysis, bivariate analysis, graphic analysis, and multivariate analysis. Students conclude their course by learning how to write a research report and by engaging in their own research project. Each book is packaged with a disk containing the GSS (General Social Survey) file and the States data files. The GSS file contains 100 variables generated from interviews with 2,900 people, concerning their behaviors and attitudes on a wide variety of issues such as abortion, religion, prejudice, sexuality, and politics. The States data allows comparison of all 50 states with 400 variables indicating issues such as unemployment, environment, criminality, population, and education.Students will ultimately use these data to conduct their own independent research project with SPSS.
