Family, and Politics

Family, and Politics

I wasn't going to disrupt a post in gratitude with petty worldly concerns, but it's now the day after, and those who have gathered are going on with the rest of their lives, and so I turn my focus to other things. One thing seen in the lead-up to the holiday was a Saturday Night Live skit with Will Farrell I got in my inbox from family who for some reason still think SNL is funny. Yes, every once in a blue moon on odd leap years, they can be self aware (look up the liberal bubble skit from after…

A Razor Cuts Deep

A Razor Cuts Deep

A few bits of Razorfist, who's been on a roll lately. First, on the impeachment kerfluffle. Then, on Beto's slip of the mask... And a bit more on guns, including why militias matter, and a reminder that the orgasms the left has over the very prospect of a "right wing" terrorist goes back a looong way. Aside from the ones mentioned here, Ruby Ridge, Waco, etc., there's also the Atlanta Olympic bombing. Do not forget the salivating glee when the media still thought the DC sniper might be an angry white man. Then, the Razor reminds us that yes, the…

Self Awareness Fail

Self Awareness Fail

Courtesy of a Mewe post by Larry Correia - looks like, in addition to being one of the few SF writers who can write "literary" in the same general neighborhood as Gene Wolfe and unlike many literary wannabes, tell a story, Dan Simmons has some balls. Of course, vile 770 took him to task for it. What did he write? Yeah, he said rude things about a child being used as a human shield to hector and shame adults. Recall - civil rules are for those who act civilized, and people morally guilt-tripping you like this to manipulate you are…

Without Nationalism...

Without Nationalism...

How does World War 2 even make sense? I know, "National Socialists," duh. Let's try to look a bit beyond the painfully obvious, especially since the Germans weren't big believers in nationalism for other people, but instead were prussian supremacists with dreams of empire. Instead, without borders, peoples with a shared culture, ruled over by their own governments and tradition, separate from other nations, why would there even be a reason to resist a few migrants with really cool tanks and uniforms? Heck, even the propaganda of the time, even on the allied side, even among the Soviets, makes no…

Leftism is Inherently Evil

Leftism is Inherently Evil

No, this is not an accidental repeat of a post I've made before, but an entirely new post made by someone else. An example is the spiritual fact that all men are brothers and sisters; this is perverted into political equality. Another spiritual good is the sexual and creative love of husband and wife - this is reduced into the massively-promoted and enforced materialism that sex = love, love is good, therefore sex is good. So Leftism is metaphysically evil, because its underlying assumptions are that Life is only-material and restricted to mortality - thereby excluding the divine source of Goodness.…

Efficiency and Money Are Not the Only Measures

Efficiency and Money Are Not the Only Measures

Tucker Carlson, debating Ben Shapiro, made the libertarian end of the sphere lose their shit. So would you, Tucker Carlson, be in favor of restrictions on the ability of trucking companies to use this sort of technology specifically to, you know, sort of artificially maintain the number of jobs that are available in the trucking energy? Are you joking? In a second. In a second! In other words, if I were president and ran the DOT, Department of Transportation, we're not letting driverless trucks on the road, period. Why? Really simple. Driving for a living is the single most common…

Bono is a Piece of Work

Bono is a Piece of Work

OK. My first exposure to U2 that I recall was someone blasting "Sunday Bloody Sunday" from their boom box after getting off the bus in high school, not too long before the Joshua Tree came out. I thought it was cool, and despite the popularity of their later album, that remains my favorite U2 song even if I know it's a blatant piece of propaganda. That said, Bono had always looked unhealthy to me, his movements, manner "off." And I never did like the cover to War, and never even looked at Boy because the name…
