by Skip May 31, 2016

Guess what blatant reactionary wrote the following words: “It seems plausible to wonder if government can build a nation abroad, fight social decay, run schools, mandate the design of cars, run health insurance exchanges, or set proper sexual harassment policies on college campuses, if it can’t even fix a 232-foot bridge competently.” Stumped? The answer […]

Notable Quote – Theodore Dalrymple

by Skip May 31, 2016

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they […]

by Susan Olsen May 30, 2016

Many of you are aware that, for many years, I have been working diligently on becoming Queen of the Universe. During my reign, it was my plan to use my newly acquired powers – for the most part, anyway – for good instead of evil. Recently, I was beginning to fear that despite all that […]

Notable Quote – William Easterly

by Skip May 30, 2016

The other great accomplishment of markets is that they reconcile the choices people make for themselves with the choices other people are making. Back at the dinner table we find that no Planner is necessary to process the enormous amount of information that is required to decide how much pasta, rice, cheese, and takeout cuisines […]

From a double Blue Star Dad – thanks Google!

by Skip May 30, 2016

Yup, the liberal folks at Google showed their wonderful thanks to our veterans today: I put the red square around their beneficent acknowledgement just to make sure you didn’t miss it. Oh by the way, remember that last week Google decided to “honor” a US hating activist / Osama Bin Laden supporter, Yuri Kochiyama:

The Lady Macbeth of Littlerock

Hillary is awful. She always has been. Absent a loveless political marriage to a charismatic cad she’d be nothing more than one of many shrill militant-feminazi foot-soldiers screeching from the darkness. Her stint as First Lady was nothing but scandal and failure. Her tenure as a Senator was jejune, rising to the pedestrian at best. As Secretary […]

Notable Quote – William Easterly

by Skip May 29, 2016
