Two Argentine judges have lost their minds
Try as I might, I couldn’t come up with a shorter or more clever title, mostly because I’m horrified at how the world around us is going straight into a Hell I never imagined*. Two Argentine judges are under fire for reducing the sentence of a convicted child abuser on the grounds that his six-year-old victim was gay. They said he ‘was making a precocious | Read More »
Liberalism Is Lethal – Baltimore Proves It
If Progressivism makes so much gosh-darned progress, then please explain to me why Freddie Gray drank his water from leaden plumbing. His family is suing the city. Their child is dead. They probably voted repeatedly for the people that helped make their own city a killing ground worth of Al-Anbar Province in Iraq. Here’s a brief bio of Freddie Gray that appeared in The Washington | Read More »

The New York Times Must Ignore History to Place Blame on California’s Woes
Adam Nagourney, writing in the New York Times over the weekend, penned this piece looking at the history of Calfornia’s father-son governors, Pat Brown and Jerry Brown. He used the California drought to cast the story of Jerry Brown, now the governor, having to clean up the messes caused in part by his father. Pat Brown was California’s governor during the boom time of the | Read More »
Tech at Night: Radio ga ga
No industry should ever get special privileges in this country. That’s picking winners and losers at a basic level. Radio gets a cutout, and it should be ended. Copyright is copyright. Just ask any freelancer what having your stuff given away for free, in exchange for ‘exposure,’ is really worth.
Waco, Caring and Police Brutality
So a bunch of really bad people decided to engage in a turf war over drugs, babes and a grubby hang-out called Twin Peaks.* Eight people died another 192 went to the can. The police came in like a pissed-off hurricane and exercised peace through superior firepower. The aforementioned “business establishment” got the business and won’t be reopening for at least seven days. If we | Read More »
Hog: For the Summer
I get copies of books to review and have been fortunate enough to start getting cookbooks for review. Most of them have been dreadful. Seriously — they’re food porn with recipes that look beautiful, but no one would ever want to make, let alone could because of the complex and hard to find ingredients. But some real gems come my way too. I was not | Read More »
President Obama’s Permanent Presidency?
Imagine if President Obama and his policies never left office.
Imagine if the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in the IRS, DOJ, HHS, DHS, and other federal agency could target conservatives, “piece together” charges against patriots, and force a permanent partisan progressive agenda on the American people.
That’s the reality we face in America today. But there is something we can do.

The Culture War is Upon You, Whether You Want it or Not
With the fall of Ramadi to ISIS over the weekend, many foreign policy analysts are scrambling to assign and apportion blame between George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and various other recent key players for the slow-rolling failure of the current Iraqi state. I guess these questions are interesting within the context of political supremacy here in the United States as between Republicans and Democrats – | Read More »

Slate’s William Saletan: the dumbest man on the internet
Sometimes you read stuff so bizarre that it simply takes your breath away. Slate, which set the standard of intellectual rigor with its epic expose of the cruel sport of monkeyfishing, has always been a motherlode of lackwits who can be counted upon to say the most bizarre things to boost their pageviews. One of the black holes of intelligence at Slate is a guy | Read More »
The Amtrak Crash: When Government is Ideological Instead of Lawful and Logical
Last week’s deadly Amtrak crash was absolutely horrendous. For Democrats and their fellow Big Government advocates – it was a serious crisis they are trying desperately to not let go to waste. They first tried to say the cause of the crash was a lack of government money. Except Amtrak has received over $30 billion since its 1970 inception. The last spending bill signed by | Read More »
The Republicans in 2016 Are DOOMED!!!!!!
Every once in a while you stumble into a news cycle and think, “This cannot be a coincidence.” As news reports bring word that Hillary Clinton is still refusing to answer questions from the press, Ramadi falls to ISIS, and things just aren’t going well for the Democrats right now, fear not. The press steps in with its usual “The GOP is doomed” headlines. We | Read More »
Loretta Sanchez commits a microaggression
The California senate race is shaping up nicely. Two rabid and dimwitted progressive harpies, Congresswoman Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) 0% and Attorney General Kamala Harris, are locked in a cage match to succeed another rabid and dimwitted progressive harpy, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) 0%. Sad to say, one of those two will be a US Senator and thereby, as | Read More »
The Mayaguez Incident
The hijacking of the Maersk Tigris by the Iranian armed forces and their attempted piracy of the Singapore flagged Alpine Eternity it is fitting that we take a look at a similar incident that took place 50 (math is hard) 40 years ago.
