WHINOs, RINOs, Donald Trump, Bright, Shiny Objects, and The Intervention.
In the tech industry, many of us refer to a lot of the new technologies that come down the line as “bright, shiny objects” – things that tech people look at that are new and potentially interesting but rarely turn out to be anything other than an attention-grabber and a distraction from more important things. Applied to the election season, this should sound familiar. But | Read More »
The Wolf Gets Closer To Our Door – Canada Edition
The rattling sound of falling economic dominoes grows closer to home with each passing day. When it was Greece and Venezuela, we shrugged like the good Cynical Realists we increasingly become with each passing day. “Give it up Jake, it’s Athens/Caracas/Chinatown.” Then it was Puerto Rico. At this point even, the deniable still existed. All of these countries were small and struggled to field an | Read More »

New hotness in education: Ebonics for white folks
Back in 1996, the Oakland School Board (personifying Mark Twain’s observation: In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.) passed a resolution that recognized Nigritian Ebonics (I am not making this up) as an ‘official’ language with special teachers. In the process it made a laughingstock of itself and provided material to stand up comics for a | Read More »

CNN blames GOP for confirming OPM director
Last week, the monumentally unqualified and totally inept Katherine Archuleta finally did the right thing and resigned as director of the Office of Personnel Management. She did this only after it was revealed that very personal information, such as sexual history, mental health problems, and personal financial difficulties, on 10% of all adults in the United States had been handed over the communist regime in China. | Read More »
Bob Corker’s Iran Nuclear Deal and the triumph of Failure Theater
This morning the United States stands upon the cusp of abject surrender to Iran. Not only are we about to sign an agreement which locks in Iran’s ability to build nuclear weapons, we are doing so without requiring them to renounce terrorism and we will pay them something approaching $100 billion for the privilege. Mitch McConnell is making tough noises about the deal: Senate Majority Leader | Read More »
That Guy – Governor Scott Walker Runs For President
So you want a fighter to run against the perpetually angry Left. You are sick and tired of being offense-bullied by the terminally and professionally malcontented. You like good old-fashioned active aggression instead of the passive sort that ruins social trust and cohesion the way a termite colony will undermine a beautiful wooden deck. Then you want a guy who just means what he says | Read More »

A Congresswoman Demands Peace, Love and Big Brother Internet, Man
Democrat just penned an editorial for the San Francisco Chronicle. That has the patchouli whiff of her writing while sitting at the corner of Haight and Ashbury – in August 1968. It is warmed-over Hippie-Dippie, Flower Power, Socialist nonsense. But Congresswoman Eshoo writes all of this is in defense of a Huge Government Internet power grab. That back in the Summer of Love would have | Read More »
Why I’m Supporting Peter Kinder For Missouri Governor
I’m a fan of people who had the people’s back before they needed the people’s vote. I’ve been in politics long enough to know that politicians get George Thorogood-landlady lovey dovey when there is a race they need to win. They appear out of the ether at grassroots rallies, they’re suddenly on the airwaves talking about issues that predate their advocacy but not their immeasurable concern. They’ll | Read More »
The Sexism of “Rape Culture”
In current discussions regarding sexual assault, the focus seems to be on the surety of the woman’s victimhood as well as the man’s criminal act. If anything, a certain Rolling Stone apology from last December should cause us to pause and never assume the truth in any situation, especially one so life-changing as rape. The act of rape is a most personal, vicious crime, and | Read More »
The Intriguing Bid of Scott Walker
Today, Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker will formally announce his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States. Republicans have been waiting for Walker to do so and the field has been incomplete without him. It’s not that Walker has not been running. He has. He has just been focused on building up his Super PAC before having to separate himself from its fortunes. He has | Read More »
GOP candidates to actually discuss education in August; Democrats are… meh, whatever.
We do should be doing four- or five-candidate panels on EVERYTHING, from education to foreign policy to social issues to, heck, what’s good on television these days.
