Snippet 3: Koba the Dread, Zachto?

by Scott Morales June 28, 2016

Snippet 3 of this series asks: What do you call the killing of twenty million people? It’s really not called anything at all in this country. Not a word. Not a phrase. It’s not mentioned at all.  Most do not know of the massive Soviet killing. Some Russians call it “the twenty million”.  But Amis […]

Snippet 2: Koba the Dread, Christopher Hitchens, Breaking the Truth

by Scott Morales June 17, 2016

Snippet 2 of this series touches on the friendship of Amis and Christopher Hitchens and the left’s penchant for breaking the truth.

Thumbnail image for Wandering the Twittersphere – Adolf Hitler was Not A Conservative.

I’m working on re-associating myself with Twitter.  As part of that commitment to wasting more of my time–in all honesty I have collected a decent news feed through my Twitter acquisitions–sometimes I wander off onto other peoples streams to see what they are sharing in 140 characters or less.   I found this very entertaining.

Happy Roe v Wade!

by Susan Olsen January 19, 2013

In order to properly celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Roe v Wade, I offer the following: Below are famous genocides of the 20th century.  The table ranks them in order of the estimated number of human beings slaughtered and tells us the times we would need to commit those same genocides again in order to match […]
