Quoth the Raven

I have some friends down in Baltimore and one thing that they have observed is something that has occurred during many (most/all?) other big “events” as such in my lifetime. They are reporting that there are a not insignificant number of socialist agitators inciting violence if not directly then certainly indirectly. Now, I cannot comment […]

Via Scott Alexander: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel goes up to the counter and gives a tremendously long custom order in German, specifying exactly how much of each sort of syrup he wants, various espresso shots, cream in exactly the right pattern, and a bunch of toppings, all added in a specific order at a specific […]

A few “high”lights: Before our deployment overseas, Peace Corps vetted us for our idealism and “tolerance,” not for our competence or accomplishments. We all wanted to save the world. … I never witnessed significant leftist outrage over clitoredectomy, child marriage, honor killing, sharia-inspired rape laws, stoning, or acid attacks. Nothing. Zip.

Happy Pol Pot Remembrance Day

I like to read, when I have time, things like Counterpunch Magazine, you know, to share the vibe with my comrades.

It has created enormous cities, has greatly increased the urban population as compared with the rural, and has thus rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life. Just as it has made the country dependent […]

Pravda

Here are the required summer readings for the local government middle school this summer: In case you can’t see them: No stories of Henry Ford or Josiah Wedgewood or even Isaac Newton. Nope. The government schools turning kids into little activists and accepting unquestioned the “science” of a pop book on food. And I’m paying […]

I usually hate infographics and here is another one just littered with reasons to go crazy. But focus only on the very bottom: The changes Brill suggests would allow the US to provide better care at lower costs without substituting the kind of government-provider system typical in comparison countries. Holy smokes. This is the previous […]

First They Came for the 1%

Here is AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka: In his speech Thursday, Trumka declares that it’s “time to protect” those very programs while raising taxes for the “richest 2 percent.” In any event, I don’t see what Social Security and Medicare have to do with union work issues? What does taxing the rich have to do with […]
