Never Trumpers and Fox News

by Jon N. Hall4/20/18
Although the truly florid lunacy over the Trump presidency is confined to the political left, there is another breed of anti-Trumpism on the political right: the Never Trump movement. These folks are the conservatives, the libertarians, and (especially) the establishment Republicans who were staunchly against Trump More » • (52 views)

 Why Should Whites be Happy about Becoming a Minority?

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke3/19/18
White people are finding it “difficult to adjust” to becoming a minority, goes the premise of a new AP history textbook — with the implication that this reflects some kind of character defect. Responding to this, conservative writers have generally denied the claim, sometimes calling it a “Marxist lie.” But a different point should be made. More » • (47 views)

The Yutes and The Lexington Green

by Pat Tarzwell   4/19/18
We had an event here a few nights ago that I thought would be interesting.  The event was titled Shelton Innovators Spring Picnic.  This was put on by a local high school and I thought as an inventor, I would like to meet some of these kids and see just what innovative things they were up to.

The Narrow Brick Road

by Deana Chadwell4/14/18
We hear often in the media disparaging remarks about Christians. It is the one group society is allowed to attack, the one religion that political correctness refuses to cover with its blanket of protection. But why? More » • (97 views)

Movie Review: The Shape of Water

by Brad Nelson4/5/18
This is a fanciful film, the skeleton of which could be described as a mix of Creature from the Black Lagoon and Beauty and the Beast. This film is from Guillermo del Toro, noted for (to my mind) the awful Pan’s Labyrinth. More » • (45 views)

Not in Kansas Anymore

by Deana Chadwell3/24/18
I have a 1956 Norman Rockwell print of a frumpy, sweet-faced teacher standing in front of a class of clean-scrubbed, straight-backed children. They had just written “Happy Birthday, Miss Jones! ” on the blackboard for her. More » • (239 views)

The Dollar: Lionel Shriver on Ruin

by Jon N. Hall3/7/18
Could the U.S. dollar ever be ruined? Other currencies, like the German mark in the 1920s, have been ruined, why not the dollar?

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke3/1/18
The Return of the Grieving Activist  •  According to many gun-control advocates, 18-year-olds are too immature to handle guns — but are mature enough to advise us on gun policy. Thus we’re told we must “listen to the voices” of the young Parkland shooting survivors. More » • (204 views)

Parkland Politics

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke2/23/18
Are Democrat Midterm Ambitions the Real Reason Parkland is Still in News?  •  Unlike after other mass school shootings, the movement from Parkland to propaganda has had tremendous lasting power. The tragedy’s wake has seen sustained news coverage and energized anti-Second Amendment protests, ostensibly due to organic “student activism.” More » • (169 views)

Truth or Consequences

by Deana Chadwell2/20/18
What do humans do when they discover – albeit subconsciously – that everything they’ve believed in is wrong — is, in fact, evil?  Are folks likely to do a face-palm, shake their heads and say, “Can’t believe I bought into such stupidity!” More » • (312 views)
