Wanted: manly virtue

    Rich Cromwell writes a lively discussion of our culture’s attempts to deal with manly virtue at The Federalist, inspired by a hilariously funny advertisement that shows a guy desperately trying to recapture his masculinity after using a feminine product in the shower: Cromwell goes on a tour of leftist culture’s inability to define what “masculinity” means, especially since that culture is so nervous about endorsing | Read More »

    How the traditional family will destroy the dependency state [part 1]

    The dependency state (including all dependents both responsible savers and irresponsible government cases) is doomed to failure.  I posted previously on why I believe the overall dependent to productive worker ratio is ~4:1 right now.  Most of our dependents are funded by siphoning off some of the excess valuable labor of these workers and directing those fruits to the not-currently-working via medicare, medicaid, social security, | Read More »

    Pavlov’s Dogs and America’s Last Men

    So how are EBT Cards and QE debt monetization alike? They resemble one another in three ways. They are jet-fuel for the continued encroachment of the state. They require a voluntary acquiesence of liberty in return for security and they both are a form of shackle that binds those who benefit from either to greater government dependence. What type of individual would prefer either QE or EBT Card money to individual liberty? Friedrich Nietsche gives us a description of just that type of individual.

    The last man is tired of life, takes no risks, and seeks only comfort and security….The last man is the goal that European civilization has apparently set for itself. The lives of the last men are comfortable…. Social conflict is minimized. Nietzsche said that the society of the last man would be too barren to support the growth of great individuals.

The last men claim to have discovered happiness, but blink every time they say so.

    Economic growth the key to future of America, GOP, and Fiscal Cliff

    The union-instigated potential demise of Hostess has conservatives witnessing with bemusement the fruits of Obamism: striking union members facing job losses and unemployment checks. The only problem with Republican and conservative Twinkiefreude is that further economic decay and government dependence HELP ELECT MORE DEMOCRATS, which continues our downward spiral to doom. The antidote to this demise, for the United States, and yes, the GOP, is | Read More »

    The 47 Percent

    Copious pages of commentary have been poured over the kerfuffle surrounding Romney’s newly-discovered comments regarding the 47% who don’t pay taxes and inexorably vote for Democrats.  It’s important to note that Mother Jones malevolently edited out two minutes of the video right at the time Romney made the “47 percent” comment.   There are a few points that I believe have been overlooked throughout this | Read More »

    The Wages Of Hope And Change

    The people writing these essays described in the YouTube above are the future of our nation. Someone who believes that “As human beings, we are not really responsible for our own acts,…” may be the person performing open heart surgery on someone you care about in a not-so-pleasant future. Regrettably, the quote continued. “and so we need government to control those who don’t care about | Read More »
