The Follies Of Experts

     Your Curmudgeon is coming to believe that “experts” and the relentless promotion thereof exist solely to reinforce “official” BS and intimidate those who see through it. Perhaps he’s even a bit late to the party, as that seems to be a burgeoning recognition among Americans generally. Nevertheless, it’s a notion that deserves some exploration, …

Death Cult Chronicles: The Cleverness Front

     In a recent exchange of views with a cleverer-than-usual pro-abortion person, I posited that abortion is morally wrong because a human embryo is human.

There Are Days I Wish I Were A Journalist

     …especially one who conducts interviews with politicians:      U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) blamed the overturning of Roe v.

A Giant Mound Of Infant Corpses

     I know of no way to verify this, but I tend to trust the source:      [T]hough all such numbers are a bit uncertain, roughly 55 million people die, globally, every year.

The War On Compassion

     There have been quite a few “war on” initiatives popularized by the statists of our formerly free nation. I’m sure you can name a few names without straining: “War on Drugs,” “War on Poverty,” and “War on Terror” practically leap to mind.
