Je ne Suis pas Charlie — I’m Sane

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   1/13/15
It’s so often the case that the best thing a person can do to improve his reputation is die. John F. Kennedy is now a legendary president, but would he be estimated so highly if he’d been able to end his political career as a man and not a myth? More » • (1061 views)

The Bad Christian and the Good Secularist

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   1/4/15
“If not for my faith, I would be barely human.” That was the answer English writer Evelyn Waugh gave when asked, as all Christians will be at some point, how he could call himself a Christian given his behavior. More » • (706 views)

When Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   12/9/14
There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else, illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but reflects a wider phenomenon; More » • (1144 views)

The Bright Side to Amnesty

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   11/19/14
To many, the above title may seem much like speaking of the bright side to malignant cancer. And did it really come out of this writer’s pen?

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   11/17/14
There’s stupid. There’s really stupid. There’s really, really stupid. Then there’s Democrat stupid. A prime example is a Friday Wall Street Journal article titled “This Democrat Is Giving Up on ObamaCare.” More » • (989 views)

2014 Election Results  •  The best predictor of future voting patterns is past voting patterns, to use a twist on a famous maxim. This is probably even truer of groups than individuals, and, despite some wishful thinking to the contrary, this election cycle was no exception. More » • (2536 views)

Welcome to EbolaCare — but the Website is Down

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   11/14/14
A well known phenomenon in the animal kingdom is that when taking over a new pride, a lion will sometimes kill all the cubs. We don’t know exactly what kind of feeling drives him in this bloody act, but there’s obviously a lack of attachment. Suffice it to say the problem can be summed up thus: it’s not his family.

It’s Official: The Democrats are the Party of the Devil

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   11/12/14
Perhaps the first clue, or the ten thousandth, was when many Democrats opposed the reinsertion of God into their party’s platform in 2012 and booed the judgment that the measure to do so had passed. But now it’s official: More » • (1000 views)

Does Barack Obama Have Blood on His Hands?

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   11/3/14
Little Eli Waller will never grow up to be president. The four-year-old New Jersey boy will never grow up to be anything because enterovirus D68 took his life — quite possibly because a boy who did grow up to be president, but not really a man, invited the virus into our country.

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   10/27/14
There is one particular thing that illustrates better than anything else the unreasonableness — and some would say gall — of homosexuality activists. It’s not demanding that bakers, shirt printers and wedding planners be party to events and expression deeply contrary to their principles More » • (958 views)

The Rise of the Professional Slut

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   10/10/14
“There was a time when you knew who the bad girls were,” someone close to me once said. “Now you know who the good girls are.” And I hear that all three of them are beside themselves over today’s state of affairs. More » • (5058 views)

Equal Work? Government Has No Idea What That is

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   9/30/14
“Equal pay for equal work!” the mantra goes. “Women get only 73 cents on a man’s dollar!” These are oft-heard slogans, and we may well hear them again during the fall campaign with the War on Women afoot. More » • (1055 views)
