Immigration, Unemployment, The Golden Dawn and The Not-So-Funny Side of Beppe Grillo
So just how do we construct a valid set that that contains poorly-regulated immigration, unemployment, The Golden Dawn, and Beppe Grillo? If we’re lucky, here in America, we probably cannot. So, as Cliff Eastwood famously asked. “Are you feeling lucky?”
Now given the nice, violent intro and the unresolved rhetorical queries above, I should explain this all a bit. I’ll endeavor below. The governments of what we typically refer to as The West are following a set of economic policies and a set of immigration policies that are accidentally making the rise of a politically influential fascist movement more likely in the Western World.
If things work out really badly over here, we could easily be on our way to having people gain power in America like Governor Huey Long. We once had a President who thanked and congratulated Filmmaker D.W Griffith on his pro – Ku Klux Klan historical fantasy “Birth of a Nation.”

Fables Of A Reality Based Community
An urban legend, urban myth, urban tale, or contemporary legend, is a form of modern folklore consisting of stories that may or may not have been believed by their tellers to be true. As with all folklore and mythology, the designation suggests nothing about the story’s veracity, but merely that it is in circulation, exhibits variation over time, and carries some significance that motivates the | Read More »
Hypocrisy In The UK
Brett Stevens of Amerika.org makes an interesting observation regarding the dishonest, hateful nature of the modern governmental super-state. He points out the painfully obvious below. Modern society has made itself so legalistic and granular that often it cannot see the forest for the trees. It specializes in deconstruction, or separating details from the bigger picture, …
My Endorsement This Year: Rick Santorum 2012
If you watch politics long enough, you’ll see a moment where the tragedy of a losing campaign gets so bad that you actually stop and laugh. It was the “Taliban Dan” ad back in 2010 that convinced me that Alan Grayson was off to his next stop on his professional career. Examples of this have abounded in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary. Who can forget | Read More »
The First Amendment And Obamacare
“Conscience is the most sacred of all property.” James Madison Yet another aspect of the American Affordable Care Act has caused the Obama Administration to come-a-cropper with the United States Constitution. The act has already inspired a dense thicket of law suits over its individual mandate provision that forces people to buy insurance or pay a penalty tax for not so doing. Recently, Health and | Read More »

Is It Pro-Choice, If It’s An Offer You Can’t Refuse?
“I asked the doctor if it was a boy or girl,” Wei said. “The doctor said it was a boy. My friends who were beside me said the baby’s body was completely black. I felt desolate, so I didn’t look up to see the baby. The nurses dealt with the body like it was rubbish,” Wei said. “They wrapped it up in a black plastic | Read More »
The Anthony Murder Trial And The Sickness Of Lifestyle Abortion.
“I think that while it may be uncomfortable to hear one of the reasons its uncomfortable to hear is there is an element of truth in it. If they, if you people the media really really think she’s guilty and you want to feel better about this just tell yourselves that she just waited a couple of years to get an abortion and you’ll feel | Read More »
In Ocala, Florida Modern America Reaps What It Has Sown.
Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. – Galatians VI King James Version (HT: The Phrase Finder) The town of Ocala, Florida played host to an absolutely brutal crime. A 15-year-old boy, who apparently had the survival will of Rasputin, was beaten, shot seven times, burned, killed and cremated. Afterwards, the ashes were hidden in several paint cans. How horrible! Who could do | Read More »
Life, Death, Abortion and Genghis The Green
“We found that during the short events such as the Black Death and the Ming Dynasty collapse, the forest re-growth wasn’t enough to overcome the emissions from decaying material in the soil,” explained (Julia) Pongratz. “But during the longer-lasting ones like the Mongol invasion… there was enough time for the forests to re-grow and absorb significant amounts of carbon.” (HT: mnn.com) You know who really | Read More »
Kanye West Had A Point: Modern America Hates Black Unborn Children
Bureaucratic inertia is not exactly news. We understand that. But we think this was something more. We think the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion. Grand Jury Report Re Misc. No. 0009901-2008. First Judicial District of Pennsylvania Criminal Trials | Read More »
Welcome To The Desert of The Real
The kabuki theater ends and Stupak is as Stupak does. We get Healthcare by a 219-212 margin, whether we were sick in the first place or not. So, since we all get to munch down on this delicious crap sandwich, let’s be honest here and clear up some misconceptions about the particular flavor we can expect. The bill will cost way more than anybody claims | Read More »
A Jerk’s Progress: Pop Goes Pitino!
It’s hard for me to feel sorry for New York City in general, or most New Yorkers I’ve met in particular. 9-11 made me feel that way and absolutely nothing has since. Any city that would elect John Lindsay Mayor and send Charlie Rangel to Congress deserves to wake up sore and disoriented the morning after.
But then something happened that made me realize that there are some indignities that a just and loving God should not even visit upon New Yorkers. This epiphany occurred when Rick Pitino piped up and announced. “I’m a proud New Yorker.”
I guess that’s not as bad as having your home town associated with Al Capone or Jeffrey Dahmer, but hasn’t New York City had to suffer enough with the recent recession? Nobody deserves to be associated with Rick Pitino. He ranks up there with every high-profile cad I can remember falling from grace. Pitino, like John Edwards, Mark Sanford and Elliot Spitzer has now fallen into a well-worn cursus honorem.
He has reached the apex stage of what I’ll refer to as The Jerk’s Progress. He did something well. He received way too much undeserved fame and adulation. He forgot that his actions could have consequence, and now he gets to suck on the fumes of his own moral dissipation. That’s The Jerk’s Progress and Rick Pitino has clearly demonstrated himself a prototypical jerk.

Would A Pro-Life Batman Shoot Dr. George Tiller?
Condemning Dr. Tiller’s murder should be heartfelt, not tactical for those who also condemn Dr. Tiller’s performance of multiple late-term abortions. We may not always like or feel served by the laws, but we should all thank God every night in prayer that we live in a society of laws; not men.
