Women’s sports: the next victim of tolerance
If society survives long enough it will look back upon the first couple of decades of this century as the point where sexual deviance was mainstreamed in the name of tolerance, the deity du jour of the American left and libertarians. While most attention has focused on the immense effort devoted to making sure that the small percentage of homosexuals (who make up a blessedly | Read More »
NYT: Sen. Daniel Inouye (D, Hawaii) reportedly the Gillibrand Groper; and, oh, yeah, he might have raped a hairdresser once.
For the benefit of any Democratic staffers who might be assigned to read this site: please tell your legislators to not touch people inappropriately, or to sexually harass them. In case nobody’s ever mentioned it before – and, judging from recent history, nobody in the Democratic party has – that sort of thing is morally wrong.

A Marxist Mistake? AFL-CIO Pushes Get Out The Vote For Mid-Terms Under Soviet-Style Symbol
In 1997, shortly after current AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, along with then-president John Sweeney, took over the AFL-CIO, America’s oldest labor federation lifted the ban on Communists. Nearly two decades later, as Republicans, Democrats and Independents gear up for this fall’s mid-term elections, the special interest group—indirectly funded by union members’ dues—has launched a “get out the vote” page with a symbol that is eerily | Read More »
It is cyclists who need to check their privilege
My first reaction to this post someone actually wrote and published was that the title – What My Bike Has Taught Me About White Privilege – is so ridiculous in its intersection of two groups of online jerks, that it can’t possibly be real.
It is though, and it’s perfectly illustrative of what’s wrong with bicycle activists today.

You Have a Purpose
We live in such a screwed up world, mainstream culture is increasingly submitting the fringe to be normal and the normal to be fringe. Boys and girls are more and more taught that they can pick their own gender adventure. The prominent scientific voices tell us we are accidents of the cosmos — the product of a swerve in nature. Who we sleep with is | Read More »
Ten Years at Redstate
My morning routine used to be coffee, bagel and a newspaper. When the scandal called Rathergate broke, the phrase "fake but accurate" jarred my brain. I fired most mainstream media in September 2004. That’s when I joined Redstate. As Vladimir, I lurked at Redstate for a while before contributing a few throwaway diaries. But I found my blogging voice when I realized that my petroleum | Read More »
Bobby Jindal Launches His Energy Plan
On Tuesday, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced his energy plan. It was the second such plan to come out of America Next, Jindal’s policy shop that is plainly developing a national policy agenda ahead of the presidential campaign that Jindal is obviously preparing (like all potential candidates, Jindal merely says he’s considering a run but hasn’t finally decided yet). The plan is less new and | Read More »

Americans for Shared Prosperity’s ‘Barack Obama as dysfunctional man-child boyfriend’ ad.
Barack Obama is a lying, cheating, no-good, paranoid manipulator who keeps telling you that he’s going to change, but never does. And his friends are just as bad… but you can do something about his friends.

Tech at Night: This industry is getting faster-than-inflation gains due to regulation
I do apologize for this post being late and shorter than usual but work was really rough this week and I’m kind of catching up with myself this weekend.
The biggest hidden part of your cable bill is the bill you pay for your local channels. So-called Retransmission Consent fees are huge, and growing every year, becoming an ever-more important part of the revenue for the major networks, and the local channels.
Free, over the air channels never got so expensive.

Paul Davis’ “Kansas Values”: Busted Getting A Strip Club Lap Dance
Kansas Democrats have not had a great year. They had to go to court to get their own Senate candidate thrown off the ballot. Now comes news that their gubernatorial candidate, Paul Davis, got busted in a strip club in 1998 while getting a lap dance. Politico has the story: In [1998, Davis] was getting a lap dance at a strip club when cops raided | Read More »
Pre-game prayer ban defied in Tennessee
For nearly eighty years the Oneida (Tennessee) High School football team had opened its games with a prayer. Naturally, such an act could not be allowed to stand. The comically misnamed American Civil Liberties Union and the bigots of the Freedom from Religion Foundation objected and sent a letter to the Oneida Special School District promising the usual bouts of litigation, an activity that is | Read More »
The War on Poverty: failure redefined as success
On the 50th anniversary of Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty,” Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation posted a devastating after-action report pronouncing it “a colossal flop” at the Daily Signal: Since its beginning, U.S. taxpayers have spent $22 trillion on Johnson’s War on Poverty (in constant 2012 dollars). Adjusting for inflation, that’s three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution. | Read More »
