How to lose the support of the average Joe Sixpack.

So, when an Amazon driver has to defend himself from one of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens who was also masturbating in public, you would expect the cops to grab the guy who was pulling his pud on the sidewalk. Yeah, not so much. Police arrested Abu and charged him with third-degree assault after Sanchez claimed that Abu …

Delusions And Stability

     Delusions are often functional. A mother’s opinions about her children’s beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth. — Robert A. Heinlein      I’m still on the mend, but a little better, thanks for asking. Maybe I’ll be able to speak audibly by New Year’s Day. It’s ambitious, …

The Unreasonable

     Clever title, eh? Gets the brain churning, doesn’t it? “The unreasonable who?” “The unreasonable what?” “Porretto’s playing games again, isn’t he?”      (“Again,” you say? When did I stop?)      Well, it’s all in a day’s work here at the Fortress of Crankitude, Long Island’s premier shrine to self-indulgent snark over too many glasses …

Must It Be Said Yet Again?

Once again, we all knew the narrative was garbage

Saint George Floyd of Fentanyl wasn’t killed by the cops, and the four police officers that are currently in jail for his death were wrongly convicted for political reasons. A former Hennepin County, Minnesota, prosecutor is suing her employer, alleging that she was a victim of sex discrimination and retaliation. That’s par for the course. …

Percentages And Concentrations

     There have been several posts by other bloggers that address what happens to a society when Muslims reach various percentages of the population. History confirms the dangers such accumulations of Muslims present to a previously free and peaceful society. Moreover, Muslims’ reproduction rate far exceeds that of Western non-Muslim whites, which puts time on …

Crime And The Individual Perspective

     John Hinderaker asks in a plaintive tone: Is Crime Still Illegal?      All of these descriptions are somewhat sanitized. We have seen the videos: gangs of twenty or more criminals will descend on a store, often blocking the street in front of the store with their vehicles, and rampage through the establishment stealing whatever …

The Subjugated City

     Time was, New York City was the nation’s commercial Mecca. Businesses fought to establish themselves there. Real estate there was considered the most prestigious on Earth. The city’s harbors, its status as the Eastern Seaboard’s transportation and communications hub, and its extraordinary cultural vitality were lures that few firms could resist.      Time was. …

This Warmed The Cockles Of My Spiny Little Heart

     I’ve said it’s coming. I’ve told you to watch for it. Well, it’s here – and I say it’s about BLEEP!ing time! Sikh grocery store owner was told that “there ain’t nothing you can do” repeatedly and that “ayy, just let him go” as they were being robbed. The Sikhs disagreed. pic.twitter.com/ZIb5CVLMNl — Ian …

The Explosion Of Criminality

     I know of two ways to create a crime wave: Outlaw many ordinary actions and undertakings; Refrain from prosecuting and punishing crimes already on the books.      Can anyone suggest a third?      Today, John Hinderaker comments on the crime explosion in Minnesota, with emphasis on a specific recent event:      Derrick Thompson was …

The Low-Trust Society: A Case Study

     I snagged the graphic below from Ace of Spades HQ. The story it tells, though four and a half years old, is an important one. It’s easy merely to allow yourself to be appalled and then pass on to other things. In today’s sociopolitical environment, that’s no longer wise. Anyone could be caught in …

Some Vigilance Committees Are Pretty Small

     Yet they can still be effective:      A Dollar General store in California could be on the hook for a substantial sum of money after an employee appears to have flouted the state’s monopoly on violence by going after an accused shoplifter on her own – and hitting him with her car.      Remember …

Undoing The “Not Done”

     I hope John Ross, the author of Unintended Consequences, won’t mind the following lengthy excerpt from his book:      Joe Columbo was a well-guarded organized crime boss who operated in New York in the ’60s and ’70s. In 1972, a mob rival paid someone to murder Columbo during a New York parade. Knowing that …

Dog Bites Man?

     (The full story on page A38 at bottom right, with pictures!)      There are items of information to which the human mind is resistant. Take the certainty of death, for example. All but the youngest of us know this, yet very few people go through their day with even a background awareness that I …

     According to this article, Donald Trump, the 45th president of these United States, expects to be arrested on Tuesday:      Numerous leaks have reported Trump will be charged next week in New York City in the Stormy Daniels case where he has been accused of paying Daniels as part of a confidential settlement before …

Social Deterioration In Real Time Dept.

     As long as we’re looking at signs of the Apocalypse, have another: Walmart has taken the racist step of protecting their inventory. pic.twitter.com/eOXhFE4sJP — Dane (@UltraDane) March 16, 2023      Well, yes, she’s an idiot. The cloth mask is a dead giveaway. But not only is she mumbling through a completely unnecessary mask, she’s …

Unforgivable Sin, Ineradicable Stain

     Perhaps you’ve already read about this latest infamy against the well-being of the American people:      The Department of Interior (DOI) initiated a rulemaking process to “establish maximum protection” for 13 million acres of land across the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska. It was set aside by. Congress for resource development.      Biden added …

Toward Ungovernability

     Every process occurring in nature proceeds in the sense in which the sum of the entropies of all bodies taking part in the process is increased. – Max Planck      Dunghills rise and castles fall. – Yankee proverb      If there’s anything a public servant hates to do, it’s something for the public.” – …

It’s Not Just Here

     Have a look at this report from Alice Springs, Australia:      A cinema in Alice Springs has been forced to board up their front door despite being open after it was broken into five times in the last four weeks.      Alice Springs Cinemas shared an image of the theatre’s boarded up front door …

Moral Principles And What Follows Their Dismissal

     Fulton Sheen said it better than I ever could:      I’ve known people who would argue endlessly that there are no moral absolutes: i.e., that there are no natural rights to life, liberty, or honestly acquired property. Not all of them were stupid. Neither were all of them criminally inclined. They simply couldn’t cope …
