An Assessment

     The following is lifted from a recent novel:      “Tim, how are your classes coming along?”      “I’ve got the kids working on a Better Government assignment.

Slaps In The Face

     The first is an open-handed one. Quoth Baron Bodissey:      Anyone who is forced to accept the farcical results from Pennsylvania is being grievously humiliated.

Piebald Nation, Magpie People

     Well, it’s finally here: Election Day 2022. Until late this evening, those of us unwilling to break the law can know very little about what’s taking place.

Has A Super-majority Had Enough?

Because, as we learned the hard way in 2020, a majority is not enough. Come 8 November, the final scene below is the least they could do. So man the polls as you have never done before, because the enemy knows they have everything to lose. And so do you.

The Further Desiccation Of The Desiccated Remains

     The late, great Clarence Carson wrote the following in 1964:      [W]e are told that there is no need to fear the concentration of power in government so long as that power is checked by the electoral process. We are urged to believe that so long as we can express our disagreement in words, …

Fall Guys

     No, there are no words nor punctuation marks missing from the title.      If it were a recognized industry listed on the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ, the “Get Your Fall Guys Here” industry would be one of the fastest growing in America.

What Should We Expect On November 8?

     If the hate-filled legions of the Left are willing to do this to a pre-election canvasser:      A volunteer for Sen.

Conservatism And The Present Age

     Among the things that are absolutely essential to progress – regardless of what sort of progress we’re talking about — the recognition and correction of mistakes is paramount.

Is it Safe? Part 1

The wannabe despot is a coward. Before he acts he needs to feel the environment has been well prepared before he makes the next move. The title of this series comes from the line endlessly repeated by the Lawrence Olivier character as he tortured the one portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in Marathon Man. Well, in …

A Heroine For Our Time

     I can’t get enough of this incredibly courageous and forthright woman:      Europe has waited far too long for her like.

When The Newsies Are The News

     Sometimes what the “journalists” are doing is just as important as what they’ve been “reporting.” Now might be such a time.      The tweet referenced below embeds a clip everyone ought to view: two solid minutes of American media doing their damnedest to paint Giorgia Meloni, the probable next prime minister of Italy, as …

An Interesting Assertion

     And from a really interesting source:      “Putting people’s lives at risk,” eh? Which people? The illegal aliens, or the residents of the areas to which Abbott and DeSantis are sending them?

They Who Make War…

     …shouldn’t be surprised if they get war in return. Consider the implications of Usurper figurehead Joe Biden’s declaration of war on American conservatives:      Here’s what the president told a Democratic Party fundraiser near the White House on Thursday.      “What we’re seeing now is either the beginning of the death knell of the …

The Rulers

     To learn who rules over you, simply look to those you are not allowed to criticize. [Multiply attributed, most often to Voltaire.]      The above seems sound. Certainly many aristocracies treated the criticism of the rulers — lese majeste — as a serious offense. In some such lands it was treated more harshly than …

An Alternative Strategy No One Will Like

     Concerning the prospect of mail-in ballots and similar fraud-enabling measures in the upcoming midterms, Stephen Kruiser has a few words to say:      During the Obama years, I used to say that any GOP candidate had to make sure that he or she was “outside the margin of ACORN.” I’ve updated that to “outside …

A Little Confirmation

     Now and then, we get a “Kinsley gaffe” – i.e., when a politician accidentally tells the truth – that tells us more than we ever knew. (Sometimes it’s more than we wanted to know, but that’s a subject for another tirade.) We have one before us today:      For decades, the Democratic Party had …

War Of The Cablecasters

     If you don’t watch Tucker Carlson’s nightly “openings,” you’re missing some of the best and most entertaining commentary available:      Ridicule, Alinsky tells us, is the unanswerable weapon.

The Requirements Of Civil Debate

     Just a quickie this morning, as I have a powerful need to unshackle myself from this electronic ball and chain and do something that will have a true effect on the world, even if it’s only to mow my lawn again.      We know that genuinely civil debate is impossible today. Most Americans have …
