March 23, 1775. Patrick Henry at the Second Virginia Convention.

Verde Point is a self-described “luxury apartment” complex with a rooftop pool and “personal wine storage” that is currently accepting public housing assistance recipients who will live there practically for free, courtesy of the taxpayers — at least until they become gainfully employed and their incomes | Read More »
You know what? Segregation is a minority right
One of the great things about this highly paid gig as a RedState contributor, other than the private jet and unlimited hookers and bourbon, is being professionally obligated to keep an eye on what the left is up to. By following the left you are able to read “trans-women” (which, I believe though I’m ready to accept correction, is a man who is suffering from | Read More »
Starbucks’s racial conversations claims its first victim
You could see this coming. It was as visible as a thunderhead on the prairie. The only people who couldn’t see the logical outcome of Starbucks’s utterly benighted plan to encourage untrained “baristas” start conversations on race with people they didn’t know was the people who came up with the idea. Yesterday, my colleague, Moe Lane, set up the potential for hijinks: I do not | Read More »

After destroying the American family, the left is still not happy
The one thing the American left is excellent at is mucking up systems that function reasonably well the demanding that the government, which mucked things up, step in and fix things. They newest cause célèbre is the increasing inequality of opportunities between the children of affluent (though I probably should say “normal”) families and less privileged families.

Jihadi John Puts The Lie To The Progressive Theory of Terrorism
Listen my five or so Constant Readers. Draw nearer still as I enlighten you in The Gospel of Post-modern contained within the hallowed verses of The Book of Harf.

Hillary, Barack and Hypocrisy
You are Ruled By Those you are not allowed to criticize” – Voltaire We all know that it is racist to question a President’s Patriotism and sexist to keep and store binders full of underpaid womyns.

The Obama VA: First They Screw Your Healthcare, Then They Steal Your Valor

Obama’s wasted opportunity to counter “violent extremism.”
When Barack Obama gave closing remarks at the “summit on countering violent extremism” yesterday a several things were obvious.
