Roundup

First of all, posting has been sparse, and not up to what I promised. I'm fixing that.First - Nick Cole reposts and expands his hit blog post on how CTRL-ALT-REVOLT was banned by his publisher, despite being a successful and well-selling author.On a related note, Larry Correia is on mewe after being banned from facebook again, and the jackasses at China Mike's are patting themselves on the back for frivolous flagging. Second, scumbags have learned to weaponize Facebook’s lax stupidity. They simply find someone they don’t like, and then report their posts. Nobody with a brain…

Goodbye, Old Guy

Goodbye, Old Guy

When it's time for an old friend to leave, there are few things more appropriate than Kipling.FOUR-FEET (from "The Woman In His Life") I have done mostly what most men do, And pushed it out of my mind; But I can't forget, if I wanted to, Four-Feet trotting behind. Day after day, the whole day through— Wherever my road inclined— Four-Feet said, "I am coming with you!" And trotted along behind. Now I must go by some other round— Which I shall never find— Somewhere that does not carry the sound Of Four-Feet trotting behind.HIS APOLOGIES 1932 Master,…

Red Flags at Morning, Take Warning

Red Flags at Morning, Take Warning

Who'd have guessed that the push for red flag laws might be supported by the left because it gives them excuses to report people for arbitrary reasons?Peter Grant notes that there are already threats to abuse red flag laws, with the attitude that, of course, anyone who wants a gun must be crazy.While I'm not sure how to best nail down the details, I'm still have the overall attitude that people who cannot be trusted outside the confines of a prison or institution should be in those self-same institutions if you want to take away their reights to…

Impressions of Europe - Kristiansand

Impressions of Europe - Kristiansand

Not much to say about this town. The main part of town is laid out in a square grid, with a fort midway along one side facing the water, and small beaches and boat docks along the same edge. There's a beautiful cathedral in town, and it's obviously a tourist spot - some nice little restaurants and shops and cafes that you'd find at any beach or resort town, but far fewer tacky ones due to the small size. You can get a pretty good tan even at the northern latitudes with all of the hours of sunlight in the…

Stop Criminalizing Insanity

Stop Criminalizing Insanity

While I'd first come across a deeper look at the history of sanitariums in this country courtesy of Aydin Paladin, this related, and in many ways overlapping, video by Stefan Molyneux is the springboard for this post.While both videos are good, the critical subject Stefan covers in greater depth is the connection between crime rates and dumping the people who used to live in Asylums and Sanitariums into the streets to be supposedly cared for. Especially how they then went back down as the war on drugs and getting tough on crime re-institutionalized a lot of the people who…
