Silent Majority vs. Major Whinority

I’m interested in learning what others here think about whether there is a “silent majority,” and, if so, just how major is it? I don’t mean Republican and Democrat, or even Left and Right, I mean the percentage of people who believe in live and let live and mostly want to be left alone […]

5 YouTubers You Should Be Watching Right Now

So, a YouTuber recently hijacked a veteran’s film event at the Sundance Film Festival to make a gay statement/spectacle of himself, and then screamed homophobia when he was thrown out. Events like that certainly reinforce the stereotype of YouTubers as obnoxious, narcissistic millennials devoted to mindlessly soaking up attention and pushing their idiotic politics on […]

Why Liberals Lose In One Picture

About five years ago, the above picture of a woman falling out of her motorized cart was posted on People of Wal-Mart, a website devoted to making fun of the mostly working-class white people who shop at Wal-Mart. The picture went viral and was reposted on Reddit, Imgur, and other sites frequented mostly by […]

... and Justice for All?

[Please note this post, while linking to John Ziegler’s latest column in LawNewz.com and his “The World According to Zig” podcast, does not have anything to do with Jerry Sandusky. The parallels are astounding, but not Penn State-related at all.]

If only more (alleged) reporters had a modicum of John Ziegler’s and Ralph Cipriano’s […]

Oooh, That's Gotta Hurt

Mike Rowe was asked his opinion of Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes. He responded thusly:

In 1986, I took my girlfriend to see the movie Aliens. She didn’t want to go. Said she hated science fiction. I told her to broaden her horizons, and try something outside her comfort zone. She finally […]

Don't Leave Angry, Just Leave

In an article for The Daily Beast entitled “An Open Letter to Celebrities Threatening to Leave the Nation“, actor Anson Mount (above), star of the AMC western Hell on Wheels, calls leftist celebrities out for their arrogance and hypocrisy in the wake of the Trump election. It is genuinely one of the most intelligent […]

In Defense of TV Violence: A Rebuttal

I’ve never watched “The Walking Dead,” nor do I plan to, but based on JimmyC’s description and the snippets he provided from Dave Taylor I think Taylor makes the better argument.

I don’t want anything banned, or censored. It’s not the coarsening of culture I’m concerned with as much of the dumbing down of […]

In Defense of TV Violence

Over at the conservative culture site Acculturated, writer and Walking Dead fan Dave Taylor wrote an article in which he criticized the extreme violence in last week’s brutal season opener. The episode, which depicts two men being graphically murdered by having their heads smashed in by a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, has […]

Ready, Fire, Aim!

This, http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/09/target_corporations_transgender_bathroom_pander_costing_its_shareholders_billions.html

is rather fascinating. I don’t pay a lot of attention to the retail world, but I had heard about Target instituting their, “pee wherever you want to” policy and I had heard mention of a boycott. I didn’t know the boycott was that official, nor did I know just how much Target’s […]
