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 […]

Money is not the only answer, but it makes a difference - Barack Obama

Ace at ace.mu.nu has written a few posts explaining what secondary boycotts are and why he has changed from advising against them to advocating for them.

I’m not particularly a fan of boycotts as a sort-of political movement, but I’ve never understood why so many folks give their hard-earned money to people who will […]

It's About The Issues, Stupid

Well, as Scott mentioned in today’s OT, Greg Gianforte just won his election in Montana by a decent margin, despite the Democrats dumping plenty of money into the election and the media breathlessly reporting on his being accused of body-slamming a reporter. Gianforte has done the right thing, owning his actions and apologizing for […]

Tumblr Dumblr: Queering The Culture Edition

There’s been a lot of discussion on the right lately about how liberals have taken over the culture and infected it with their point of view. In particular, LGTB propaganda has become practically ubiquitous, so much so that I can’t recall the last time I watched a non-children’s show that didn’t have a prominent gay […]

Break it down

 

Tom Del Beccaro, smarter than the average bear, and here to help even the most ignorant and intellectually dishonest trolls. Californians blew it last year not electing this man as their Senatorial representation in DC.

Some answers for the critics of the new healthcare bill . . .

Criticism #1. Many will lose […]

Perilous Pain Pill Public Policies

Who’d a thunk that well meaning policymakers could screw things up for others? I don’t pretend to know what the solution to the opioid addiction epidemic is — and it is a big problem… but people never seem to remember that any move to resolve an issue always creates other problems. Anyway… this is […]

Please, God, Stop Chelsea Clinton from Whatever She Is Doing | Vanity Fair

It seems some on the Left, other than Sandernistas, are tired of the Clinton schtick. Good read from Vanity Fair.

Perhaps the best way to start is by revisiting some of Chelsea’s major post-2008 forays into the public eye. Starting in 2012, she began to allow glossy magazines to profile her, and she picked up […]

Ben Sasse on Economic Disruption

Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse has a great piece in the Wall Street Journal — an excerpt of a speech he gave at the Steamboat Springs Institute called The Challenge of our Disruptive Era:

I don’t mean to be exceedingly pessimistic. There are plenty of wonderful opportunities for American families and innovators in this […]
