Thor’s Hammer + Releasing the Kraken

    I have been moving this week and the site has descended into chaos in the comments. There are multiple petitions by many of you, the diarists, readers, and commenters of this site, to disband the recommended diaries list because it is being gamed by a number of diarists at the expense of new and, frankly, quality non-conspiratorial material. Being Scandinavian, let me introduce you to | Read More »

    Friday Promotions

    Melissa no longer has to make the coffee around here. I’m pleased to announce that Repair Man Jack and DHorowitz3 are our newest front page contributors. We’ll be ordering both of them around and Repair Man Jack is going to get to take out some trash I’m sure.Consider this an open thread.

    RedState vs HuffPo

    Well, we’ve seen enough articles over the past week that we can’t stop reading about AOL’s remarkable acquisition of The Huffington Post – at a pretty significant $315m price tag. First, I have to say that the capitalist in me needs to genuinely congratulate Ms. Huffington. To turn her website into the pageview and influence juggernaut it’s become shows real internet acumen.

    Stupid Is As Stupid Does – UPDATE At End

    The pro-abortion zealots reach to great lengths to justify the barbarity they support. Thers at Whiskey Fire put up a snark-filled “rebuttal” to this RedState post from the Directors, replete with the typical dehumanization of the unborn, as if the unborn were somehow a different species, and an inane accusation that the RedState post might incite violence. But Thers isn’t alone; Media Matters also makes | Read More »

    The Great Debate

    Although it is almost impossible to believe, we are already seeing the first glimpses of the 2012 primaries here at RedState. We have been through one season of contentious primaries before, and although our community has grown, we expect many of the same sorts of issues to crop up. Therefore, this is as good of a time as any to address some of the ways | Read More »

    Dear RedState Community

    We have a problem.There needs to be a certain amount of flexibility within the rules of this site and I think that as written they are sufficiently clear. The problem is that there is a group of commenters that has come to believe that the rules don’t apply to them.There are long time readers of RedState who believe that somehow the community rules no longer | Read More »

    You Are Entering a Republican Zone

    This post was originally written by Bob Hahn on July 1, 2005. I have tweaked it just a bit and am bringing it back. Please note that while generally written about the great Democrat vs. Republican divide, the advice herein applies equally well to those all on the same side of the big ditch but who, for varying reasons, cannot get along.Who should read this?You | Read More »

    And Wonders of His Love…..

    Promoted from diaries and bumped – Moe Lane My 23 year old son sent me this video. From there, came the idea of a Christmas post; though it is about more than Christmas – had Thanksgiving on my mind, and the year to come. As I watched this video, I was enthralled with the beautiful scenes of nature: the quiet of the woods, the light | Read More »

Anyone can start a diary and participate in the community. Those who play well in the community avoid the blam stick and, over time, we tend to promote from within to the front page.The way we do promotion is pretty | Read More »
