by Brad Nelson   2/6/14

Kevin Williamson at National Review Online has written a very good article titled The Feminist Mystique. In it, he notes the tired, haranguing nature of feminism which he sums up simply as “I want.” More » • (2099 views)

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

by Steve Lancaster   2/3/14

This was not a waste of money. In fact I found it to be one of the best comedies in the last 10 years. I doubt that it was intended to be so, but anyone who has done real intelligence work will laugh till their sides hurt. More » • (741 views)

The Church of Diversity

by Brad Nelson   1/7/14

I had a peaceful run-in the other day with a young fellow from the Church of Diversity. Unlike the German socialist who I threw out of my office a month or so ago (and who physically smelled), this diversity fellow was too darn nice and clean-cut for me to take any offense.

Mr. Kung had turned me on to an excellent article at an excellent web site (Taki’s Magazine). It’s a thoughtful article, somewhat pro and con, by Elizabeth McCaw: The Straight Dope on Homosexuality. More » • (3440 views)

New Book: Maybe He’s Not Gay

by Linda Harvey   12/29/13

“I’m gay.” As more and more young people announce this is their identity, it’s time to take a closer look. It’s a profound declaration, a new civil right (they are told) and it’s “who you are.” But there’s a problem. Are we sure this is the truth? More » • (679 views)
