A most Complex, Complex

by Steve Lancaster10/19/18
The psychology glossary defines an inferiority complex as: “Inferiority Complex is a term used to describe people who compensate for feelings of inferiority (feeling like they’re less than other people, not as good as others, worthless, etc.) by acting ways that make them appear superior.

Hitler vs. Stalin

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu10/17/18
I have been reading various books dealing with Joseph Dzhugashivili aka Stalin, and came across a piece which summarized the still popular leftist belief, that Communism is not as bad as Nazism, even though many millions more have been killed by Communists than by Nazis. More » • (60 views)

The Uncanny Union of Kermit and Miss Maggie

Abortion3by Glenn Fairman10/11/18
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” — Margaret Sanger  •  As I write, inside Room 304 of a Philadelphia courthouse there sits a 72 year old bespectacled grandfatherly type who by all accounts sits smiling with an air of cool reserve as an avalanche of testimony from former patients and employees brings his unspeakable deeds to the sterile light of day.

To Deal with Leftists, Imagine You’re Confronting Satan

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke10/11/18
If you’re a conned-servative who gets sand thrown in your eyes, your kneecaps kicked off and slashed with a broken bottle and then still fights the next time by Queensberry rules, this article isn’t for you. More » • (66 views)

The Democrat Ten Commandments

by Deana Chadwell10/04/18
The Kananaugh/Ford hearing was excruciating to watch, but nevertheless instructive. The entire nation came face-to-face with the neon-glare of the nastiness that is now the Democrat party.  Decent Democrats still exist, but they either fail to pay attention and, therefore More » • (123 views)

In Memoriam: Annie L

by Arle10/4/18
A year ago, on October 4, my mother – known as Anniel to readers of StubbornThings – passed away after a brief stay in the hospital at the age of 78. Her death was one of those things that happens gradually until it happens suddenly. More » • (88 views)

TV Series Review: Babylon Berlin

by Steve Lancaster10/2/18
This is a Netflix series that has all the elements to be a failure. Somehow it succeeds in every venue. The series is long, 16 episodes. It is in German with subtitles, it has a train full of gold, Communists, Nazis, Weimar Republic, German nationalists, drugs, criminal underground, sex and corrupt police. More » • (91 views)

Blasey Ford’s Curious Omission

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke10/1/18
There was something curiously missing from Professor Christine Blasey Ford’s Thursday Senate testimony, something quite relevant to her basic claims. Please consider the following segment from her testimony about the alleged (circa) 1982 sexual assault by SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh: More » • (111 views)

Advise and Consent

by Deana Chadwell9/21/18
Any thinking person today is hearing alarms going off in all directions over the Kavanaugh accusations. It’s obvious that this is all dirty politics; we can see that in the timing, in the fussiness about Ford testifying, in the nasty rhetoric that swirls in poisonous clouds throughout Washington. But the problem is much deeper. More » • (317 views)

Movie Review: Jurassic World

by Steve Lancaster9/19/18
This is the fifth in the dinosaur rebirth series, and by far the worst. The first movie, Jurassic Park (1993), had a plausible story line and wonderful CG dinosaurs. Even the second movie, Lost World (1997) in the series had some redeeming plot twists and again the CG Dinosaurs were the real stars. More » • (77 views)

McCain, Bipartisanship, and the ‘Congress Problem’

by Jon N. Hall9/17/18
John McCain’s funeral at the National Cathedral brings to mind an admonition some will have heard in the cinematic recreation of a memorial at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London for T.E. Lawrence: “Well, nil nisi bonum” – “Of the dead, [say] nothing but good.” More » • (79 views)

Believe in Something

by Deana Chadwell9/9/18
Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just do it. Seldom have I heard a sillier string of sentences. I don’t even care whose face it’s plastered across. Nor do I care which half-witted, left-winged company lurks behind it. More » • (175 views)
