Twenty-first century America is no place for political violence

While that’s not the most snappy title, I’m hoping people who read it can all agree on that. We are above political violence. That should go without saying, but apparently it can’t. First of all, I’m not playing into false equivalence, or excuses, or blaming entire groups for what some do. I’m not going to try and look up who… Read more »

Review: MAGA Mindset: Making YOU and America Great Again by Mike Cernovich

MAGA Cover

I’m going to jump right into this one: everyone should read this book. Buy it here: MAGA Mindset: Making YOU and America Great Again Mike Cernovich’s latest hit this week, and it’s a great romp through the rise of Trump and the movement behind him: from the reasons why he’s doing well with certain groups, to a surgical take-down of… Read more »

Advocating Violence To Suppress Non-Violent Behavior

A Fool’s Journey Let’s allow for all the negative behaviors ascribed to Trump and his supporters for this discussion: They are violent reactionaries, they support a racist man, and he is the next Hitler. Presume those are true for the duration of the post. Many pundits have said the Trump supporters deserve or incite the violence they face. This is… Read more »

Treating Traitors and Collaborators Harshly

Without delving too much into politics, there has been a hell of a blow-back lately on many popular figures and their supporters on both sides of the aisle, typically coming from people on that same side.

Earning, Receiving, and Lucking Into

I hate being told I’m lucky. I saw something tweeted out by a political wonk about the greatness of America and how “white people” take credit for it because they were “treated preferentially.” Not even sure what set him off, doesn’t matter, but this struck a nerve with me outside of the political implications: there is a fundamental misunderstanding of… Read more »

Teachers, Privacy, Nude Pictures, Oh My

I’ll never get tired of that reference By now most people have heard of the teacher in South Carolina who was fired when a student stole her phone, found private photographs, and distributed them. This led to her losing her job despite having done nothing illegal or even immoral (by any sane standard) and actually being the victim of a… Read more »

Hollywood Hates Women

      No Comments on Hollywood Hates Women

Their war has to stop. In our current culture saying that a group or industry is waging war on a disadvantaged subset of the population is all the rage, because war is one of those words that we recognize on a near instinctual level.
