Totalitarian Rapture

I had an odd little conversation with someone on the Internet a couple days ago, one where my counterpart actively defended socialism and communism as worthy ideals. Normally, such dialogues go a standard “it simply hasn’t been done right” path,...

Forgetting The New Goal

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post is a follow-up to yesterday’s Forgetting The Goal Yesterday, I lamented that today’s progressives have forgotten the original goal of affirmative action, i.e. assisting individuals who’ve faced a greater challenge due...

Forgetting The Goal

The mountains of mockery heaped upon Elizabeth Warren for her tin-ear revelation of her DNA-tested proof that she does, indeed, have a few micrograms of Native American heritage have reopened, at least in some circles, discussion of affirmative action and diversity....

Pocahontas Warren And The Diversity Game

Senator Elizabeth Warren, obviously laying groundwork for a Presidential run, released DNA test results that support her long-standing assertion that she has some Native American in her lineage. Warren has been under considerable pressure to do so, especially from...

Genetic Sin

I came across another one of those “old white slaveowners” dismissal of the Constitution and originalism (the idea that the Constitution should be interpreted as it was written, not as justices of today feel) the other day. The usual rebuttal of such an...

When Lawyers Define Sex Roles

In history, have more brains ever been more racked over anything less knowable than in analyzing the recollections of the teens Ford and Kavanaugh from back in 1982? (The Dreyfus Affair, maybe). Have more media ever before been spilled over less content? Now that the...

Pimping “Democracy”

Pay attention to the news and opinion you see, hear, and read these days, especially that of a liberal bent. Pay attention to the words they use, and see how often you are fed the word “democracy.” I’ve noticed it quite a bit of late, especially...

Time Enough For… What?

Losing Americana

I’m a semi-closeted fan of Antiques Road Show. I rarely have reason to talk about it, and don’t typically plan my schedule to view it, but if I’m channel surfing in the evenings (that’s showing my age – do young people even know of...

Flushing The Constitution

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) asserted that Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers “need to be heard, they need to be believed.” When Jake Tapper followed up with a question as to whether Kavanaugh himself deserved the presumption of innocence, she responded: I...

By Any Means Necessary

The attempted borking of Judge Kavanaugh proceeds apace, with his accuser set to testify on Thursday. Kavanaugh, a man of impeccable credentials and heretofore unassailed character, is being accused of an attempted rape nearly four decades ago, when he was 17, and of...

Trump, The Lesser Evil?

The day after the 2016 presidential election, I dubbed our then-President-Elect an “untethered id” (and sarcastically tagged on the adjective “orange” a few weeks later). Yesterday, the New York Times dropped an anonymous op-ed that, if it is...

The Scarcest Resource

Ever miss an exit on the highway? Doesn’t it seem that the few minutes it takes to go to the next exit, cross over, find the on-ramp in the other direction, and get back to where you should have turned off in the first place seems like an eternity? Not just an...
