How To Avoid Raising A Spoiled Snowflake

In the latest for Prager University, family psychologist John Rosemond discusses an issue that is crucial for parents wanting to raise happy, well-adjusted kids (and one that is often overlooked in favor of more oft-discussed topics like education, discipline styles, etc.): saying no to them. If conservative parents (and future parents) want to ensure […]

I love you all ... even you

Lunch-time stream-of-conscience’ing …

Dear Democrats, you lost. As Barack Obama noted to John McCain and Republicans still resistant to his 2008 victory, just deal with it. By “deal,” though, that doesn’t mean staging national protests which disrupt your neighbors, your fellow citizens from both sides of the aisle, as they move on with life. […]

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 […]

Rufus Explains That Everyone Else is Wrong

OK, maybe I could have chosen some words better and maybe you’re not all, technically wrong, but my hyperbole got you to read this post.

My “Innovation Stagnation” post turned into a debate over the definition of paradigm shift in technology instead of the larger point I tried and failed to make.

JimmyC and […]

Free Your Mind …

Jay Mohr used to think the worst of Joe Paterno, Penn State, and Jerry Sandusky after the alleged scandal broke (there was a scandal, for sure, just not the one you think it was). As the false narrative walls continue to crumble around CNN’s Sara Ganim, ESPiN, and beyond, please take the time to […]

Stop! Hold on … stay in control.

Sure, it may seem difficult to envision Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams, two of the 80s biggest working class hero songwriters, worthy of the task of looking out for the best interests of 21st century boys wishing they were girls (or vice versa), but damned if their respective boycotts of North Carolina and Mississippi over […]

Mirror, mirror, on the Wall

Good luck getting anyone on the left to believe the 1% they purport to loathe actually represents all the things they advocate — abortion, open borders, tranny bathrooms, etc. — but the numbers don’t lie. Feh. As if those pesky facts matter much to them these days.

Please be sure to read the below […]
