Uturnium, the Reverse-Think Atom

    It’s a truism that discoveries are made when least expected. While playing a word game in the car recently we created the word ‘uturnium,’ which is the atom that causes drivers to do opposite of what would be expected in a given situation. This means things like turning left from the right lane, turning right with the left turn signal on, etc. After some serious | Read More »

    Things That Threaten Our Children

    Daffyd over at The Big Lizards Blog begins an excellent post on some of the problems of Modern Leftism with a timely reprint of the opening paragraph of the Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. short story Harrison Bergeron. THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody | Read More »

    The Left Knows How To Create and Sustain Outrage…Where Is Conservative Outrage?

    It is happening again: the Left takes an incident that can match their distorted views of  AmeriKKKa and push it on a daily basis to foment outrage and sympathy for their distorted views. The Left has taken the Trayvon Martin case in Florida and pumped it into a myth symbolizing – in their opinion – “everything that is wrong with America.”  Protest rallies thousands of | Read More »

    Leftism as a communicable disease, George F Will a case study

    In one of his books, Thomas Sowell writes about a people whose culture was rooted in the value of education, (language, science and math) and inventiveness. How these people were the first ones in the new world that banned slavery from their communities, (in Pennsylvania and Brazil). That these people could succumb to the insane ideas of one Adolf Hitler was well worth the study | Read More »

    The Two Amerikas of Obamacare

    I have a nagging sense, and think I have accurately observed, that many of these people have made a separate peace.…I suspect that history, including great historical novelists of the future, will look back and see that many of our elites simply decided to enjoy their lives while they waited for the next chapter of trouble. And that they consciously, or unconsciously, took grim comfort | Read More »

    The Importance of RedState, Your Vote, and Your Life

    Have you wondered if your one vote, out of several hundred million next week, will really make a difference to America?   Have you wondered if your life, out of several tens of billions of humans who have ever lived, will make a difference, or has any kind of importance?  As a member of RedState, you undoubtedly have wondered about this question with a more religious | Read More »

    Government Isn’t Us

    This Post was originally posted at the Blog of the Cambridge University Conservative Association. President Obama recently spoke at the University of Michigan. In his speech, he criticised those who attack government as inherently bad. He stated that such people fail to comprehend that “in a democracy, Government is us.” Why Obama Is Wrong – 1. Democracy?!? At some level, democratic governments are supposed to be | Read More »

    Leftist Barbarians and The Decline and Fall of America

    Many moons ago, conservative thinker William F. Buckley Jr. wondered in an essay: “If you lived in a declining society, could you know it?” Ancient people had an organic view of the rise and fall of civilizations, especially long-lived ones. A civilization had a birth, a development, and a death. At any moment, however, Death, in the form of natural disasters, invasions by foreigners, or | Read More »

    Comprehending the Young Left

    I’m not saying empathize, but in order to comprehend them you need to try just for a moment or two to grok this song. Since Drudge is running the story about Morrissey being whapped on the head with a plastic bottle containing a liquid resembling beer, I know he knows Morrissey. He probably also knows Morrissey because of his background in suburban Washington, DC — | Read More »

    The Pigeon within the Confidence Man

    Leading a Leftist political movement must be akin to coaching an SEC Football Team or working as a stand-up comic. Past performance counts for very little, and the time to produce is always now, now and Now! The Community-Organizer-In-Chief has just discovered that last week’s fishes and loaves miracle no longer impresses the yearning masses. The Hope and Change was supposed to happen in real time, which rational people understand is impossible.

    But Barack Obama deliberately whipped up an unthinking movement. Nothing he did, said or proposed appealed to any sort of prolonged ratiocination. He should have known the stakes before he took the gamble. But he didn’t. Instead, there was a big, fat pigeon hiding inside America’s most successful political confidence man.

    EXPOSED: Top Level Left Wing Conspiracy of Lies in the UK

    British Labour Party officials, working at party headquarters, on the clock, on and around January 13 this year, invented and chortled over the most vile and indefensible slurs, smears, and lies they could think of to launch against Conservative Party politicians in the weeks leading up to the elections this fall. They even sent their smears and plans around in email, and praised themselves on | Read More »

    Fundamental dishonesty and malevolence: The Left’s modus operandi

    Let’s play a guessing game. Last week I watched an interview on TV. The interviewer, working in a union shop, interviewed a pro-union leader, whose national operation is a non-union shop. The interviewer works for a for-profit company that pays lots of taxes. The interviewee works for a non-profit organization that doesn’t pay taxes. The interviewer gives 20% of his pre-tax income to charity. The | Read More »

    Strands of conservatism: a lesson on conservative thought in four parts

    Recently, I have had the opportunity to joust with a few of our lefty lurker friends. Some of them have been quite courteous and seemed genuinely interested in what RS has to offer. Others have been – well, not so courteous. During the course of interacting with one of the less polite fellows, bs suggested that I expand my response describing conservatism and countering liberalism | Read More »
