Why Trump is Right and Floyd Is An Elitist Hypocrite

The view from Floyd’s office.

In this comment:

Floyd Turbo gets on his high horse and tells unemployed blue collar folks they need to suck it up. Our Wal-Marts are full of cheap goods from China that make life for the Turbos peachy-keen, so the Trump’kins can take their protectionism and stuff it.

Third Party Liability

Kevin Williamson has a good write-up in National Review (sorry, Scott) on why Libertarians are (once again) not getting any traction in this election cycle. Personally, I think the idea of Libertarians as a third party is flawed from the start, because Republicans will see them as Democrats lite, and Democrats will see them […]

Tempered Steel

Dallas Police Chief David Brown

The more I read about Dallas Police Chief David Brown the more optimistic I feel. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan’s homage to his protectors during his first post-assassination attempt speech in April 1981 — Sick societies don’t produce men like Chief David Brown. From the Los Angeles Times:

Gender Neutered Pronouns

UCLA Law professor Eugene Volokh at the Washington Post’s Volokh Conspiracy blog has an enfuriating/interesting piece on New York City’s plan to fine people for not using the proper pronoun to refer to them. Don’t think “he, she, or it”. No. Think “zhe, ze, hir, et al. I shit you not:

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 […]

Inconsistent Vegetative State

The priesthood of scientists and medical professionals… they don’t nearly as much squat as they purport to know. From the journal Aeon comes this unsurprising yet still disturbing story about how many folks — thousands of people — are still “here” even though they have been diagnosed as persistent vegetative…:

The Kids Are Alright

It can be tough to be optimistic about the future these days, what with so many Millennials following the Pied Piper of socialism, and our upcoming election coming down to a choice between Hillary Clinton and one of her donors. But take heart in the knowledge that even among Millennials, there is a right-leaning silent […]

Wake Me When October Ends

With my headspace now firmly locked in a Rubio ’20 mode, at which point I hope this year’s formerly best chance to instill genuine hope and re-spark American exceptionalism en route to defeating whichever socialist the Democrats foist upon America learns from his 2015/16 campaign mistakes.

Till then as I plan to tune […]

Liberal Morality Summarized in Two Tweets

Liberals like to excuse horrific acts like terrorism by claiming that there is no real good or evil, but in fact they do believe in good and evil. They just define those terms a little differently than the rest of us. For an illustration of this, check out these two tweets by far-left activist Jonathan […]
