Take and Destroy

The scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail between King Arthur and the anarcho-syndicalist filth farmers ends with Arthur calling Dennis a “bloody peasant.” Dennis then declares: Oh, what a giveaway. Did you here that, did you here that, eh? A raft of...

Charity’s Scolds

Almost instantly after the devastating fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris captured world-wide attention, French (and other) billionaires started pledging large sums of money towards restoration. That was followed up by countless other pledges, large and small,...

The Game She Has Learned

I can hear your groans now. “What, another Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez piece?” It’s an open question, in chicken-or-egg fashion, whether AOC’s notoriety is the result of the Left’s vocal, in-your-face adulation or of the Right’s...

The Gender-Neutral Lie

I recently read a string of tweets from several parents (mothers and fathers) who lamented “failure” in their efforts to raise their children in a gender-neutral way. Their failure wasn’t one of not allowing the child to choose its own path, but...

Let The Squirming Begin

There’s an aspect of human instinct that leads us to resist admission of error. Whether this is a feature or a flaw is a debate for another time and place, but we don’t have to weigh the merits of the behavior to recognize that it exists. It’s rooted...

Mueller and the Narcissists

So, the long-expected Special Prosecutor investigation has finally concluded, and his report is in the hands of the Attorney General. I’m content to wait for the report, or a summary/Reader’s Digest version, to be released, but I appear to be in the...
