BLM and OPM

BLM and OPM

Where is all that money going? Thus spake Michael Brown, Sr. after he learned that BLM (the organization) had raised $90M by exploiting BLM (the movement) for financial gain. And, thus, the seedy underbelly of all things political emerges once again. It's always about...

A Nibble A Day

Cancel Culture, a phenomenon whose existence (too) many contort themselves into pretzels denying, has "found" the writings of Theodore Geisel. Or, as most of us know him, Dr. Seuss, author of more than 60 books and creator of The Cat In The Hat, Sam-I-Am, The Grinch,...

Killing Opportunity

Killing Opportunity

What does the Left have against the young? Despite all the 'Science!,' schools remain closed or are opening sl-o-o-o-wly because of massive resistance from teachers' unions. A 'lost year' isn't a particularly big deal to adults from a developmental standpoint, but...

The Oppressor Class

The Oppressor Class

The en-vogue social theory of modern times, when stripped of its various veneers, boils down to a simple concept: that there are oppressors and oppressed. Not individuals, mind you, but groups, aka classes, aka categories, aka "identities," and our only relevance lies...

The Double-Bind

The Double-Bind

Identity and "woke" politics are, it seems, an endless game of "hold my beer," where every face-palm inducing iteration begets an even more outrageous offering. Yesterday's escalation arrives from none other than the Coca-Cola company, wherein a training video thrust...

Conflict Karma

Conflict Karma

The fallout from the Capitol riot continues to expand, and we are now being told that the entirety of the Trump-voting populace should be labeled "insurrectionist." With such a label comes, of course, the application of tools the government has at hand in response....

How ‘Bout That Emmy?

Here in my home state of New York, land of the second-highest per-capita COVID mortality rate in the nation, a major scandal is unfolding in slow-motion. Governor Cuomo, the object of swooning adulation this past spring for his supposedly "adult" handling of the COVID...

Capitol Theater

Capitol Theater

In the wake of the January 6th riot at the Capitol, 25,000 National Guard troops were dispatched to DC, presumably to establish order and protect the Government against other acts of insurrection. Five weeks later, with nary a protestor in sight, 5000 troops remained...

The Neverending Derangement

The Neverending Derangement

To no one's surprise, the Senate failed to convict Trump on the impeachment charge forwarded by the House. What was originally put forth as a "save the nation from his lunacy the last two weeks of his term" was flipped on its head to a tepid "keep him from running for...

Green Energy’s Dirty Secret

A few years back, the phrase "Rare Earth" would most likely elicit recollection of a 70s Motown-soul band, that had a number of hit records (the most remembered, at least to this boomer, is "I Just Want To Celebrate"). Today, however, "Rare Earth" elicits...

…As Long As It’s Mandatory

A political friend shared a quote on social media today: "Liberals, I have heard it said, don’t care what we do as long as it is mandatory." -- Joseph Epstein This echoes a popular meme (and T-shirt, and other merchandise. A thumbs up for free enterprise!). I had an...

Revelation By Proxy

As is probably true for most Internet surfers, I sometimes go "on safari" on the Web, letting my nose and the various algorithms take me where they will. Sometimes, those safaris do nothing more than kill time. Other times, though, I intersect something very...

Us, and Them, and Them

Speculative fiction writers, whether they be "science-y" or not, often bring us visions of possible futures. Some are optimistic, some less so. Some fall into the "dystopian" category, defined by the Oxford Languages folks as, "relating to or denoting an imagined...

Escalation, Not Equivalence

Escalation, Not Equivalence

A libertarian site needs another article on "homo sapiens good," "homo politicus bad" like a fish needs a bicycle. Yet, here we are again, with obvious points of morality for individuals twisted beyond recognition as they grind through the mind of homo politicus:...
