Rocky Mountain High

One of the reasons I’m a big supporter of federalism is that it allows individual states to try out new policies, and the rest of us can stand back and gauge the results to see how well they work. (The effect of this is negated somewhat by the fact that liberals tend to force […]

No Escape-ism

So my latest YouTube obsession has been a channel called Diversity & Comics, in which the host – an Iraq war veteran and comic book writer/enthusiast – critiques the current state of the comic book industry, particularly Marvel comics, which has truly gone off the deep end lately.

He covers the whole sorry […]

Excellent, or Bogus Adventure?

I can’t figure this out.

Like all humans, I have no special insight into the future, but, like most humans, I try to discern patterns from evidence in front of me. But the current state of affairs? I can’t even guess something as basic as; “is the overall direction positive or negative?”

Trump seems […]

A Modest Proposal To End Homelessness

The other day I was at the park with my family, and I overheard some other parents discussing politics. Unsurprisingly, what they said never went beyond standard liberal talking points. They talked obsessively about “the rich” – the rich are “entitled” because they don’t want to share what they have with the rest of […]

Sleeping Giant, Awakened.

You may recall a while back I wrote about “PewDiePie”, the most popular YouTuber in the world, getting witch-hunted by the mainstream media after making a tasteless joke in one of his videos, and being labeled by liberals as a “Nazi” (which, if you’ve seen his stuff, makes about as much sense as calling Mister […]

“I am a woman. I just didn’t want to be a weak one.”

In the latest from Prager U, Antonia Okafor tells the story of how she became a Trump-voting, gun-toting, baby-protecting conservative despite being a black, millennial woman. I am not black, female or a millennial, but my own path to conservatism was incredibly similar to hers. The lies, the false logic, the demonizing of those […]

Friday Open Thread 

As seen on the Book of Face… “Sunday in the Park with Chris” (Christie)

They're the judge and jury all in one

Great interview from Christian Toto with true rebels, rebels!

They have come to think that music is a safe space to be nurtured and protected in, but they’re finding out it isn’t. They’ve become the uptight 1950s parents that refused to let their kids buy Elvis records.

Nevertheless, She Persisted

This wins Best Tweet about yesterday’s Georgia election:

Georgia was supposed to be The Big Win the Democrats were looking for, the one that showed the tide was turning against the GOP. But despite the Dems’ dumping some $30 into the race and outspending Karen Handel something like 10-to-1, they still couldn’t pull out […]

Tower of Babble

Grenfell Tower, London, UK

Conservative MP Daniel Hannan has some bracing and true words about the recent tragedy — the Grenfell Tower fire this past week. As in the UK so in the States when it comes to exploitation and manipulation of the victims, public, and their emotions. From CapX:

Do you remember the […]
