Ladies and gentlemen, I do not care if you are liberal or conservative. I just hope you can, and will, agree with me here. Because the stakes of this are just getting too damn high.
We need to cancel Little Nas X.
In the past, I have talked about how over the top our pop stars have gotten. Well, it would appear as though we have hit absolute rock bottom; God, I hope so. Because if Little Nas X is not the bottom, then what the hell is?
What we have here is a Satan worshipper forcing his views on…
The college pledge. Delivered to wealthy white residents of Dallas, it demands that they not send their children to a top-fifty school; and sign a pledge online.
Of course, CNN is claiming this is fake. If so, this is quite a committed troll job.
Look at their website and decide for yourself. I really hope this is a joke, but these days, who knows?
My favorite part of the message is that comes straight from Ronald Reagan. You see, the benefits of this will trickle down to others. My kid goes to college, and begins to develop generational wealth; lol…
The GOP may just be on the ropes, but this is not the first time in living memory this has been so. What remains to be seen: will the GOP bounce back like they did after Nixon, or become ruins of what was.
In 1974, one GOP operative believed that, in the wake of the Nixon era collapse, the party could well come to an end as soon as 1980. Watergate was the declared reason. The then GOP speaker of the House had no such fears.
The Republicans are looking forward to 2022 midterms as an inevitable triumph; should they…
The self-styled leading conservative publication on Medium is no more. Its leading contributors, and founder, are in Medium jail. They have told me they will fight it, but I doubt they will be allowed back on the street.
So why did Common Sense Now get taken down, its lead writers banished? Both conservative & liberal alike will agree: they got canceled. The bone of contention is, was it warranted or not? After having seen not one word of hate speech on said publication, I dare say no.
I had only recently become aware of CSN, and I did like it…
I remember, back in 2008, seeing the reactions to Obama being elected the first time. Most notably, the Black man in New York, tears in his eyes, telling us that the doubt has been erased. The doubt should have been erased, yet there are those who wish it had not been and have been busy creating new doubt; these people exist on both Right and Left.
One possible solution? A Republican Obama.
But that’s insane? Not at all.
Much ink has been spilled to answer the question of what makes someone qualified to be president of the United States, and in determining which of our past presidents have actually been qualified for the job. Historian Dan Carlin said, and I completely agree, that nobody is actually qualified for such a job.
So if that is true, it should be no surprise that presidents make massive mistakes with foreign policy. Except, not all mistakes are as such. Some are, in the long run, forgiveable; others are just screwups.
The Valley Transit Authority is the public transit agency for Santa Clara County, i.e., the South Bay, aka Silicon Valley. Something happened at the VTA maintenance yard in May 2021.
This story seems simple and straightforward on the surface. But do a little digging, and you may well see that the story is not the story at all. Something else, dear reader, is going on here.
Now, I do not mean to diminish anybody’s suffering. …
Every country has its heroes. Some of them are politicians who become true leaders; others are military figures who inspire valor; sometimes, they are pop culture icons. In a Hollywood full of ever more crass content and shallow characters, I hearken back to a real hero of television.
I present the case of a Mr. Hank Rutherford Hill, a person who, if he really existed, would be among the finest men you ever did meet. How else would such a character stay on the air for 13 years?
In a media environment which is increasingly sophisticated, one needs to be…
Next month, the people of California will be asked a question: Do you want to recall your governor, Gavin Newsom? At first, my answer was yes; now, I have changed my mind.
Let me be clear. Gavin Newsom is no angel. He has spent decades rising up the ladder that is California politics, and not doing nearly as much good for the people as someone who has climbed this high ought to have.
The Sacramento Bee recently released a video message from the governor, wherein he vented his frustrations. …
Let us get something straight for a second:
I am not talking about Native Americans. If you are Native American, you have every right to be angry, jaded, upset, whatever you want to call it. Because America and her states have actually done quite a profound wrong to you. In every possible way, your people have been abused.
If, however, you are Indian American, I am sorry, but where exactly is the roadblock? The United States has done amazingly by that community, in every possible way.
Recently, an Indian American woman named Aruna Khilanani went on what can only be…
