The Affordable Care Act

devastationby Glenn Fairman   11/15/16
This legislation, more than any other, betrays both the Left’s hubris and its trademark cynical condescension towards Americans, so typical of elites. Indeed, progressive’s assume that since their ideology on the surface seems sympathetic to the plight of the poor More » • (293 views)

A Strong Delusion

rapemelania2by Glenn Fairman   11/13/16
Because it is ideologically ill-disposed to understand the motives that inform human nature, socialism’s grasp of the human sciences is mortally flawed. Thus: politics, culture, history, and economics are viewed through a warped prism that distorts the full depth of reality. More » • (793 views)

A Word to the Wiseacres

Trump5by Brad Nelson11/10/16
You backed the winning horse. Good for you. Congratulations. But despite all the nutty things you think about anyone who has any questions about Trump — either before or after his winning the election — I can assure you we are not globalist pigs who simply want to overrun America with illegal aliens.

Left Coast Laments

To take a bit of gloss off the evening, California will continue to sink into the 3rd world mire it has destined for itself. It will demand background checks to purchase ammunition, and tax its smokers and wealthy ad infinitum, yet it will legalize recreational pot. More » • (331 views)

November Revolution

liberty2by Glenn Fairman   11/9/16
Looking at the electoral map, it appeared to be a sea of blood. And perhaps this is a visceral metaphor for the anger rising up in the nostrils of the great unwashed. I certainly did not want Trump, and my vote for him was for the lesser of two evils. More » • (1330 views)

Casual Crime

Crimeby Anniel11/8/16
When I was very young there were some things I never expected I would ever see. I had read a few crime novels, hey, I had even read about the rape of Nanking, but I thought that I, personally, would never meet a violent criminal, least of all a murderer. More » • (316 views)

It’s All About Us

Trump3by Rosalys11/7/16
It’s time for another political thread. There are (at last count) 154 comments on The Two Donald Trumps, and it is just becoming too difficult to keep track of the discussion.
