Once a governmental program is instituted, a specific clientele is born, with clearly defined interests in both the maintenance and expansion of the program’s benefits. These interests make themselves felt politically, with the familiar concentration of pressures toward expansion as opposed to the dissipated opposition reflected in the generality of the taxes used to finance …

Notable Quote – Ben Shapiro

“The left is expert at framing debates. They have buzzwords they use to direct the debate toward unwinnable positions for you. They are tolerant, diverse, fighters for social justice; if you oppose them, by contrast, you are intolerant, xenophobic, and in favor of injustice. Now, all these terms are – to be polite – a …

Notable Quote – Jordon Peterson

“The dominant narrative in our culture is predicated on the assumption that the West is a tyrannical patriarchy. It has become acceptable in our time to put forward a version of history, the present and the future that is based on a deep hatred for men.

Notable Quote – Jim Treacher

I’m not going to gloat over Kavanaugh’s confirmation*, but it’s a relief. It’s a major victory in the war for the truth. I’m glad that the Dems and their enablers didn’t get away with their repulsive, dishonest behavior this time, but I don’t look forward to seeing what they do next. They’ve all lost their …
