No, Huffington Post, the Pilgrims Were Not Refugees
There are few things more amusing than watching the left contort themselves attempting to bootstrap an image that they imagine appeals to the mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, WalMart-shopping, rednecks out in fly-over country into whatever their pet cause du jour is. What makes this impulse so cute is the idea that if they relate to us in terms we’ll understand they will make their point and when they use | Read More »
What this HuffPo complaint about Fallout 4 tells us about HuffPo’s flaws.
The Huffington Post apparently doesn’t really understand video games, either. At least, based on this Fallout 4 screed of theirs.

Politico Smears Scott Walker With False Quote
Politico today led the way in a virtual tidal wave of outragey outrage stories across the leftosphere trashing Scott Walker as some kind of monster because he thinks that laws mandating ultrasounds before abortions are “cool” and gosh doesn’t he just love rape. Only that’s not rape. And, oh yeah, he didn’t even say that. Yes once again the media and the left have coincidented | Read More »
LIBRE smacks HuffPo back on Latino outreach.
LIBRE will not be defined in the way that progressive prefer, thank you very much.

Discomfort with Activist Sex Scenes
I was always hesitant to watch the show “Modern Family.” I was worried about how much of it was activist television and how much was actual comedy. To be fair, calling it “Modern Family” and having a gay couple with an adopted child is pushing the cause just a little bit, but that’s Hollywood for you. However, when I watched the show, I discovered something. | Read More »
Silencing The Other
In Rotherham, England, 1400 young girls were routinely raped over more than a decade while authorities turned a blind eye. Why did they turn a blind eye? The authorities were so concerned with multiculturalism they could not bring themselves to do anything about a systemic and widespread culture of rape gangs in the area. The gangs were, if you read most press accounts, Pakistani men. | Read More »
Huffington Post: Too many Catholics on the Supreme Court
You scratch a progressive and you find an fascist. That has been the lesson learned from the Hobby Lobby decision. One of the most notable bits of fascist commentary appeared in the Huffington Post by an anti-religious bigot named Ronald A. Lindsay, The Uncomfortable Question: Should We Have Six Catholic Justices on the Supreme Court? Unfortunately, a majority of the Supreme Court may now be resurrecting | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 79: A Human Rights Question, and More Money for the VA and Medicare
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. A little unfinished business from last episode about the troubles with veterans getting health care from the VA. In an opinion piece at the Huffington Post by H. A. Goodman, he argues that Republicans have been complaining about how bad the VA is, but hypocritically voted against a bill for | Read More »
Does President Obama Think Sandwiches & Taxes are the Same Thing?
This can’t go unanswered. Last week Kentucky Senatorial candidate Matt Bevin got in hot water for some comments he made about gay marriage. “If it’s all right to have same-sex marriages, why not define a marriage — because at the end of the day a lot of this ends up being taxes and who can visit who in the hospital and there’s other repressions and | Read More »
Obamacare And The Freedom To Do Nothing
There’s an irony in the GOP complaining that ACA lets people quit jobs. I mean, what’s wrong with freedom?
– (HT: The Huffington Post)*
So what is wrong with freedom? I’m not sure. There hasn’t been too much of it running around loose lately. Most people who think otherwise haven’t gone through DCA around 1PM any time in the last 12 years. I kid. It’s a quote from the Huffpo. I had a hard time taking that rhetorical question above any more seriously than I’d take an old Andy Kaufman routine. The important question to ask would be this: “What in the name of Glorious and Sacred Obamacare has brought forth such a bilious wellspring of Progressive brain waste?”

Not a joke: 12 Reasons Why Obama is One of the Best Presidents Ever
What you are about to read is a much abbreviated version of a piece that appeared in the Huffington Post on November 15. It was written by Matthew Lynch Ed.D. the author of, The Call to Teach: An Introduction to Teaching. (This appeared next to his name.) It is disconcerting that as an educator, Mr. Lynch is filling innocent minds with this kind of mush. And we wonder why | Read More »
Tech at Night: Anonymous and Bitcoin, same as they ever were.
Much like WMATA, I took Veteran’s Day half-off. I did the reading but not the writing.
You know how I’m already throwing words like ‘anarchoterrorist’ around groups like Anonymous? Well now they’re siding with Hamas in Gaza against Israel and all doubt is removed. It’s amazing that the blood libel exists in some form in the 21st century, but I guess anarchists are just that terrible.
Bitcoin is still a tool for criminals including Silk Road Gangster Ross Ulbricht, who tried to contract a murder to keep his racket going.

The 10 Most Ridiculous Entries on HuffPo’s ‘Shutdown Trickle-Down’ List
A Huffington Post article/Top 50 list on the government shutdown (“The Government Shutdown Trickle-Down: 50 Effects Of The Budget Standstill”) purports to document the crushing impact of the legislative impasse on the nation, but left me wondering how serious they are. True to HuffPo form, this is click-trolling dressed up as journalism. Here are my favorite ten entries from the list, plus a bonus for good | Read More »
Aaron Swartz was offered less than a year in prison
Aaron Swartz committed a modern crime: he unlawfully used the MIT computer network, automated the download of many, many copyrighted works from JSTOR, and then infringed on the copyrights of those works by engaging in mass redistribution.
Swartz then, to the great sadness of those who knew him, killed himself rather than face possibly decades in federal prison. That act has infused the entire situation with great emotion, driving left-libertarians out to campaign against copyright. It’s also encouraged some on the right to make the best argument there was against the Swartz prosecution: that it was a case of an overzealous government official seeking to destroy a person, as an example or a feather in a cap.
It turns out that wasn’t the case at all, though. It turns out Aaron Swartz was the only one looking to make an example out of Aaron Swartz.

Obama’s Friend Venezuelan President Chavez Dies
After a battle with cancer Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez passed away today. CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Hugo Chavez, the fiery populist who declared a socialist revolution in Venezuela, crusaded against U.S. influence and championed a leftist revival across Latin America, died Tuesday at age 58 after a nearly two-year bout with cancer. Vice President Nicolas Maduro, surrounded by other government officials, announced the death | Read More »
