Race War to Victory
The Democrats do not have an agenda to run on in 2014. And contrary to the prognostications of the left, no doubt consoling themselves, Obamacare is not going to sink the GOP. In fact, the Republican Party, like the Democrats in 2006 and the GOP in 2010, can run as the party of “NO”. Most Americans are tired of Barack Obama, they are tired of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Congratulations on your rape-tainted award nominations, Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden is in full propaganda mode for Vladimir Putin, basically becoming Putin’s puppet. I’m sure he’s enjoying his award nominations while his patron state terrorizes women.
Barack Obama showed weakness when he even floated the possibility that America would turn our control of ICANN over to other countries. Down in Brazil they’re all over that idea (the anarchists are claiming they want a non-governmental control, but look, in a world with Russia and China, and even the EU countries like Germany having ‘national champions’, that’s not happening). India’s game, too. Republicans, and heck it’d help if Democrats did it to, must signal that the next President will not let this happen.

How does one identify defamatory speech in Post-modern | Read More »

From the Mailbag: Don’t be like this in ten years edition.
Seriously, folks, once Barack Obama is no longer in office: just let him go away. Don’t let him define your life and your soul to you. That’s just poison: pure, pure poison.

Randall Munroe is right about the First Amendment
Randall Munroe went off on First Amendment issues in his xkcd comic last week. He’s absolutely right too, when he says “If you’re yelled at, boycotted, have your show cancelled, or get banned from an Internet community, your free speech rights aren’t being violated.
I would just suggest we need to take this further than I suspect he predicted.
