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 […]
*Not a song by The Buggles
Magnus posted a well written piece from “Vanity Fair” where the author expressed an opinion that Hollywood would soon go through a shake up similar to what print journalism and music have gone through for a similar reason; the ubiquity of digital media. JimmyC agrees there is a […]

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 […]
Mark Steyn has announced he is partnering with Mark Levin and Michelle Malkin at CRTV and will host a 1 hour show every weekday.
