Watching Some Videos

I’m generally a reader. I read fast (over 1,000 words/minute, unless it’s very technical or containing unfamiliar concepts), which makes it my preferred way to get information. But, most people – particularly those in the 40 and under crowd – are not like that. They prefer to get their information through video. So, I decided …

The Calculus of Genocide

This is an edited and updated version of an article I posted in January of 2013 at my website. It seems timely. It is rare for those who commit evil acts to openly acknowledge that their actions are evil, even to themselves. Very often the evil-doer will justify his actions to himself and others by …

The Importance of Having a Wide Net

I read pretty much everything I run across. Even, at times, the Leftist stuff. I may get into a few paragraphs, think “Holy Sh**, this guy is WACK!” and back out, erasing any breadcrumbs I left. Other times, I will use a clearly erroneous or partisan essay as a springboard to a blog post. And, …

Hard Truth

     I’ve long been an admirer of Ace of Spades HQ and its eponymous proprietor. Ace has a gift for the penetrating phrase, the ultimately concise expression of an important truth. Just yesterday, he fired off one that’s probably his best ever. No, I’m not going to present it baldly; it must be contextualized for …

Newsmax joins the ranks of the toads.

Newsmax had Mike Lindell on recently and Lindell wanted to talk about election fraud. Newsmax’s Bob Sellers pulled out all the stops to shut him down with determined, relentless talking over him and revealing that Newsmax, quote unquote, has checked into this and found that there was no fraud. Yes, and the courts have all …

Taking the Government Out of Militias

Militias have gotten a bad name in recent years. The very mention of them seems to trigger a horror of their supposed intentions to revolt against the government. Why? Is it because the government has declared a monopoly on citizens organizing to defend themselves and their communities? Brought heavy criminal action against anyone working with …

Execrable peasants.

The peasants had a go at one of the hedge funds in the GameStop spasmatron last week and this was not good at all.  Shorting a stock can be a legitimate move based on analysis of market and/or company realities.  Make it a big enough short, however, and other investors might sit up and take …

A Surprising Turn of Life for a Former Star

Kim Novak, who has just published a book about her life, also has a website with her art. The originals have been made into prints for sale to the general public. I was mildly interested, and happened to click on the link. Boy, I was surprised! She really is quite an artist. Her techniques are …

Funny, How Allegations of Voter Fraud are Always “Unfounded”

I have little personal knowledge of Myanmar (formerly called Burma), or its politics. What I do know of it is concerning its Woke-Beloved, now deposed leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, who is the putative head of National League for Democracy (NLD). Here’s what CNN has to say about it (and we all know how reliable …

Monday, Monday…

I’m torn when it comes to playing The Mamas and The Papas songs. On one hand, the sleaziness of John Phillips is almost beyond belief – even for a Rock & Roll group leader. I won’t go into a discussion of the details, suffice to say that it’s a very sordid and – for Mackenzie …

I Like Technology, But…

…The more that tech tries to do more, the more likely it is to fail. Think about it. A relatively simple technology, such as a Raspberry Pi (can be assembled with cheap plug & play elements), still fails at times. I had to return my first Pi4, as it would crash when stressed. When I …

These Are Not the Actions of a Victorious Government

VoxDay has a point – why the worry about dissident thought/speech? Why are they cracking down, harder and harder? Well, we KNOW why. It’s because the Reality is not the Leftist Message. They are working overtime on forcing the Leftist ‘Pravda’ to be the ONLY permitted ‘Truth’. So, that does mean that we are winning …

If This is True, Then Who Will Triumph?

Short Answer – Not Us The Sultan Knish – Daniel Greenfield – has an essay that contrasts cultures by type, and seems to say that we are on the way out. Civilizations are divided into three types: Barbarian Vigorous Decadent By his standards, we have moved beyond the Vigorous type, and ended up in the …

Here we go again.

Insert F bomb after “Here we.” [Secretary of State nominee Antony] Blinken displayed his hubris a few minutes later when he said, “The door should remain open” for Georgia to join NATO under the justification of curbing Russian aggression. * * * * Blinken’s framing of the issue exposes his disingenuous approach. Russian aggression is …

Pointed question.

If you thought 2020 was off the hook, how do you like 2021 so far?[1] What I’m getting from this Gamestop oopsie is that it’s as Mr. Jeftovic says: “a generalized revolt against financial repression and asymmetric rulesets (a.k.a ‘rules are for thee, but not for me’).” I don’t understand how the day trading peasants …

What Trump was up against.

I have been dismayed by Trump’s failures to act on various issues but his actions or failures to act have to be understood in the light of the immense and scurrilous attacks on him by the the Department of Justice and key national security organs of the American government: For more than two years, the …

Ya’ Know, That Kid Has a Way With Words

He’s no Hemingway (I read his book a while back. Not a Deep book, but really funny in his take on the Deep State and Their Official Cronies). But, Donald Trump, Jr. either has a terrific staff person to write these tweets, or he’s got a true gift. And, since the tone is pretty consistent, …

Eh, It’s a More Interesting Use of My Time Than Working

I refer to sitting in front of my laptop, endlessly following threads of discussion, leaping from link to link. But, in the process, you do sometimes find gems: Such as this useful explanation of how a person fought back against the Cancel Culture. I’ve generally found these Quillette posts to be more thoughtful than most, …

Pearls of expression.

For liberal democracies are built on the premise that human values and interests are unavoidably and perpetually in conflict with one another. The solution to these conflicts is not to grant total victory to one side or another, but to accept a system of government and civil society that allows pluralism to flourish within a …
