On the Fact that College Students Are No Longer Taught Debating Skills and Instead Are Instructed to Shout Leftist Platitudes and Bromides from the Tops of Soap-Boxes as if They Were Preachers from Some New-Fangled Religion or a David Lynch Film-Noir

I could sit down for days and try to come up with a more fool-proof way to ensure generational failure, dependence, incompetence, etc. and I seriously doubt that I could top what these insular buffoons and wack-jobs have already created. I mean, talk about a bizzaro-world.

On the Fact that Black Lives Matter Protesters Crashed a Sanctioned Milo Yiannopoulos Interview at Depaul University, Shut it Down Completely, and Even Threatened Mr. Yiannopoulos and Instead of Lambasting the Unruly Protesters (Who Quite Frankly Should Have Been Arrested), the President of Depaul Shat Upon Milo (and, Yes, it Was a Calm and Measured Discussion Prior to the Onslaught)

And the grownups on college campuses.......are where these days? Seriously, I don't see 'em.

On the Fact that Social Justice Warriors Always Try to Destroy Their Opponent's Livelihood (Like Sharpton Did with Don Imus, for Example)

We need to stand up to these bald tyrants and it appears that some of us finally are (Sam Harris, Pat Condell, Maajid Nawaz, Colin Flaherty, Dave Rubin, Tom Woods, Ilana Mercer, Janice Fiamengo, Warren Farrell, Paul Joseph Watson, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Milo Yiannopoulos - the "Dangerous Faggot", Christina Hoff Sommers, etc.). THANK GOD....................................................................................................P.S. And, yes, sometimes their tactics can backfire. Like with this Garrison fellow who did the Michelle Obama looking like a power-forward cartoon (which, yes, was somewhat distasteful but then a great amount of satire tends to be - HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!). The SJWs went after him full-bore (he even got death-threats which makes SJWs no better than al Qaeda) and now he's more popular than ever. Oops, OOOOOOOOPS

On the Fact that the U.S. Is One of the Few Countries Left on the Planet that Still Has Free Speech (Europe and CanaDUH - yeah, not so much)

What do you say that we keep it that way (social justice warrior schmucks and political correctness be damned)?

On the Fact that Physicians Have a Hippocratic Oath but Politicians Don't

It's a damned shame in that while physicians can only kill one person at a time, governments can mow 'em down by the hundreds of thousands (Lincoln, the FDA), millions even (Churchill).......Of course, if it wasn't for the fact that we lap the crazy shit up completely and allow ourselves to be the fodder....... 

On if the Federal Government Ever Tries to Confiscate the Firearms of Citizens in Texas

Rotsa Ruck in trying to regulate that militia - 'cause, trust me, you're gonna need it.

On the Slandering by Radical Feminists of Jian Ghomeshi's Defense Attorney, Marie Henein

So they defend a chick like Lucy DeCoutere, an absolute bimbo who committed both perjury (multiple times) and conspiracy to defraud but slander a strong, independent, competent, intelligent, principled professional woman simply for doing her job. How royally fucked up is THAT (though, no, not at all surprising)?

A Dedication to Mrs. Clinton

Sooooooooooooooooooooo out of time.

On the Fact that Partisan Dolts Like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham Are All of a Sudden Protectionists Now that the Republican Standard-Bearer, Trump (and I Still Can't Believe that I'm Saying that About Him), Is Pushing this Thoroughly Discredited Policy While Resurrecting Hoover, Lincoln, and Other Slant-Headed Republicans from the Past

Talk-radio and cable-news are now little more than cesspools and toxic-waste landfills in which partisan ramrods of questionable intelligence and sanity (Matthews, Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Maddow, Levin, etc.) are doing little more than feeding various true-believing and low-information segments of the voting public (most of whom are way too frightened to stand alone and way too moronic to articulate why and who actually go out of their way to find this confirmation) exactly what they want to hear. How ANYBODY can watch and listen to this shameless idiocy is beyond me.

Sunday, May 29, 2016

On the Fact that (According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the National Crime Victimization Survey, and the FBI) 85% of the Interracial Violence in the U.S. (560,600 of the 660,003 Total Incidents) Is Black on White - http://www.nationalreview.com/article/420565/charleston-shooting-obama-race-crime

I'm assuming that Obama and Holder aren't going to want this in the "conversation"..................................................................................................P.S. And, yes, when you figure in the population differential, the odds mushroom all the way to 27 to 1. Yeah, there's racism in America alright; blacks hating whites being the bulk of it.

On White on Black Rape, Robbery, and Aggravated Assault

The rates are so small that they all but don't exist (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1628 - see table 42). If only it was the same in the other direction.

Saturday, May 28, 2016

On the Fact that the Smithsonian Museum (in Cahoots with Black Lives Matter) Wants to Preserve the Cleveland Gazebo Where 12-Year-Old Tamir Rice Was Fatally Shot

And the likelihood that they'd be doing this is if the person who pulled the trigger wasn't a white cop but instead, Ray Ray, Mookie, Slice, Puffy Boy, or Dre would be what exactly? Zero would be my guesstimate. 

On the Fact that the Bottom Quintile Gets Five and a Half Times as Much in Government Benefits as They Pay in Taxes While the Top Quintile Pays Three and a Half Times as Much in Taxes as They Get Back in Government Benefits

So who's not paying their "fair share" again? Please, remind me.

To People Who Are Offended by What I Say

Just imagine what I hold back.

On the Giving up of Victim Status

Sadly, it will only come about via force (and by force I don't mean through violence but rather by ignoring these people, changing our policies, etc.) in that a) most folks are just too scared to be held responsible and b) there's just way too much power and money at stake (government bureaucrats/programs, special interest groups, etc.) for a voluntary conclusion to occur. Hopefully it doesn't get too get ugly along the way.

On Leftists Who Wish to Give Rioters, Looters, Etc. "Space to Destroy" and Who Author Essays Such as "In Defense of Looting"

Yeah, they never seem to offer up their neighborhoods and businesses. Have you noticed?

On the Fact that Even Ivy Leaguers Cannot Process Beyond the Dogma Now

So I guess that we can expect a steady diet of Barack Obamas and Ted Cruzes well into the future now. Just peachy, huh?

On the Fact that a Teenage Girl Named Robin Levitski Falsely Accused a Man of Rape and Her Only Punishments Were Probation, a $315 Fine, and Court Costs - http://www.centerforinquiry.net/blogs/entry/the_anatomy_of_false_accusations_a_skeptica

So essentially a slap on the wrists (for what was clearly an attempt to destroy a man's life) with the "patriarchy" falling down yet again, in other words. Just great.

On the Likelihood that Trump Has Read so Much as a Page of Bastiat

Yeah, I'm gonna go with zero percent on this one, folks (the fact that had he read and understood "The Law", "Candle Makers' Petition", "Economic Harmonies", etc. he would understood "the seen and the unseen", "comparative advantage", and that "when goods don't pass borders, armies will" and not be out there channeling Lincoln, Hoover, and the rest of those knuckle-dragging protectionist Republicans from the past). ZERO.

On the Fact that (According to a Study by the University of Michigan) Students Who Finished in the Top Decile of Their Law School - ANY LAW SCHOOL - and Were Hired by a Prestigious Law Firm Had a 32% Chance of Still Being Employed at that Business 15 Years Later (Compared to Only 4% from the Bottom Decile)

So again, it is vital that a) an applicant go to a school where they can be successful in that it isn't so much the eliteness of the school (where a good but not great student may either finish near the bottom of his or her class or drop out entirely) that counts in terms of facilitating career outcomes (passing the bar, getting an elite job, keeping that job, etc.) but grades and b) the leftists and social engineers keep their noses out of it.............If, that is, we want to help minority students (you know, as opposed to simply trolling for votes).

On the Fact that Whenever You Go to Bottom of the Rabbit-Hole with Groups Like Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, the Bernie Sanders Crowd, etc. and Ask These Folks How They're Going to Implement Their Agenda, They Always Have to Confess that it Will Only Be Obtained Through Coercion, Force, the Threat of Violence, and Violence Itself

Via the full force of the state, in other words.............But relax, it's for our own good, they say.

On the Bromide that "Women Don't Lie" and that We Should "Believe All Women"

Substitute Caucasian, Jew, or Asian for women and see how it sounds. It sounds racist and preposterous, doesn't it? And yet this is what the radical feminists literally believe when it comes to allegations of sexual assault; that the accusers shouldn't be questioned, that the presumption of innocence no longer applies, and that we should essentially go straight from accusation to conviction regardless of the individual's credibility. This is all scary stuff, people, real scary stuff and we had better keep an eye on it, especially if Hillary (one women who most definitely lies) gets elected.

On the Fact that Ben Bernanke (Krugman's Twin from a Different Mother) Once Referred to the Various Fed Policies at His Disposal as "Ammunition"

Why does everything have to be a war metaphor (though, yes, in this instance Bernanke and Greenspan before him absolutely WERE taking dead aim at the U.S. economy) ?

On the Fact that Bernie Sanders Wants Cornel West to Help Write the Democratic Platform this Year

Well, being that Marx and Engels are pushing up daisies (and/or shoveling coal), it's as good a choice as any, I guess.

"I Always Figured on Being Reasonable"

Now if only the Democrats and Republicans could think so sanely (a la Van Heflin in "Shane" - until he almost got himself killed that is).

On How Large-Scale Racial Preferences Can Ultimately Lead to MORE Segregation on College Campuses, Not Less - Quick Addendum

And, no, not all of the blacks struggling at elite schools blame racism. Many blame themselves and some even toy around with the notion of black inferiority; yet another factor that can lead to segregation, dropping out, changing majors, etc........Don't you just love how these leftists destroy black lives and get away with it?

On the Fact that Even if Trump or Clinton Don't Expand Executive Power One Iota, the Groundwork that Bush and Obama Have Already Laid Is More Than Sufficient to Make Me Fearful of Either, Thank You

Yet one more reason to vote for Johnson (whose already risen to 10% in certain polls)..........................................................................................................P.S. And, no, this expansion of executive power didn't start with Bush and Obama (Lincoln, TR, Wilson, FDR, LBJ, and Nixon also having acted as despots at times). It did however accelerate under them (and, yes, for this I refer you to the scholarly writings and testimony of law professor, Jonathan Turley, and to the fact that executive orders were never, ever, intended to allow the President to make and/or alter the law and/or to act in a capricious manner the way that Presidents Bush - on defense appropriations, wiretaps, Medicare Part D, etc. and Obama - on healthcare, immigration, Libya, etc. clearly have have over the past 15 years or so).

As Plainly as I Can Say it

Trump is a clown and I refuse to vote for clowns. But you know who else that refuse to vote for? I refuse to vote for a person who lies to the families of the victims of the Benghazi attacks (telling them one thing when you told your own family something different) and who, when pressed on the matter, strongly implies that they're the ones who are lying. That's who and why I'm voting for Gary Johnson again.

On the Number of Times that the World's Reserve Currency Has Had it's Monetary Base Tripled

It's never happened until now (with the U.S. dollar) and because it's never happened before we have no idea what's going to transpire as the result of it. My suspicion is that it isn't going to be good (the fact that this isn't the Reichsmark, the Ruble, or the Argentine Peso here - all of which were inflated beyond all human comprehension by incompetent central planning schmucks at points during the prior century - and if the dollar shits the bed, then what?). 

On the Fact that People Will Always Vote for Benefits in Which the Day of Reckoning for Their Payment Is Decades Down the Road and/or Subsequent to Their Death

This is why pure democracy inevitably leads to civilizations dying and why we need to keep majorities in check. It's what the Founding Fathers recognized and something that we seriously need to get back to (the fact that we're currently looking at over $200,000,000,000,000 in unfunded liabilities and have idiotic politicians like Nancy Pelosi muttering that their plan for Medicare is "Medicare", etc. - http://www.realclearpolicy.com/blog/2012/12/01/economist_laurence_kotlikoff_us_222_trillion_in_debt_363.html ).

On Ann Miller and Anne Baxter Getting Caught Playing Strip Poker in 1951

I would have SO volunteered to be the dealer for what was obviously an epic babe-off.

So, Just How Short WAS Carly Fiorina's Tenure as a VP Candidate?

It made the Gregg Allman, Cher Marriage seem like the Paleozoic era (approximately 290,000,000 years) followed by Porky Pig singling "American Pie"..........................................................................................P.S. And, yes, it calls into question Mrs. Fiorina's judgment; the fact that she would sign on to something that wasn't even a long-shot like that.......Though, yes, I still find her much more attractive than Donald.

On the Fact that the Democratic Party Platform in 1932 Advocated a 25% Reduction in Federal Expenditures AND FDR CAMPAIGNED ON THIS!!!!!

It's true. Roosevelt and his running-mate, John Nance Garner, essentially took turns lambasting Hoover for his deficit/wasteful spending, insane levels of taxation, destructive tariff policies, and even went as far as to say that Hoover was leading the country down the road to socialism. Talk about a bait and switch, huh (the fact that FDR did a total 180 and turned into Hoover on steroids and as a result the Depression lasted until 1945; WW2 only masking it)?.........................................................................................................Directly from the 1932 Democratic platform - "We advocate an immediate and drastic reduction of governmental expenditures by abolishing useless commissions and offices, consolidating departments and bureaus, and eliminating extravagance to accomplish a saving of not less than twenty-five per cent in the cost of the Federal Government."

On Anne Baxter's Dress During the Final Scenes of "All About Eve"

I still haven't taken the bib off yet.

On How Large-Scale Racial Preferences Can Ultimately Lead to MORE Segregation on College Campuses, Not Less

It goes something like this. a) Large-scale racial preferences lead to a significant and cascading mismatch effect. b) The minority students have difficulty learning the material as it's taught and fall even further behind by year two. c) The minority student recognizes that other minority students are struggling, as well, and they end up withdrawing into various racial enclaves (been to a student dining-hall lately?). d) Rather than noticing the deleterious effects of mismatch, these students instead look for much more sinister causes (racist teachers, biased testing, etc.). And e) The universities totally feed into this and create such counterproductive things as special dormitories, special advisers, diversity czars, etc........Through moronic social-engineering, in other words (with the morons never paying a penalty EVER!).    

Saturday, May 21, 2016

On the Fact that the U.S. Women's Soccer Team Wants to Be Paid the Same as the Men's Team Even Though the Women's World Cup in 2011 Only Earned About 1/50th as Much Revenue as the Men's Event

That is not equality in any logical definition of the term. In fact, what these women want is special treatment (a desire to have the men's game subsidize theirs) and that puppy will never ever fly. Sorry...............................................................................................P.S. And if you really look at the numbers, the gals are already getting a sweetheart deal in that they're currently getting 13% of the revenue from their event versus only 7% for the men (http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/06/world-cup-women-players-overpaid-compared-to-male-counterparts/).

On the Fact that (According to Harvard's Kennedy School) the Share of U.S. Banking Assets Held by Community Banks Has Dropped Precipitously in the Months and Years Since the Passage and Signing of Dodd-Frank - https://www.communitybanking.org/documents/Session3_Paper1_Lux.pdf

Only an moron didn't see this one coming (the fact that these regulations disproportionately hampered small banks by making it harder for them to be flexible and by adding hugely to the cost of compliance). That and why would would anyone even consider putting Barney Frank and Chris Dodd in charge of financial reform (these two idiots being part of the reason why the whole thing went south in the first place)? I mean, does that make any sense?

On the Fact that as Anyone Who's Ever Taken so Much as an Introductory Course in Research Could Have Deduced, that "Study" Which Attempted to Do Away with the 18 Year Pause in Global Warming Was Complete and Total Bullshit (the Fact that These "Researchers" Disregarded the Most Accurate Temperature Data from the Satellite and Radiosonde Balloon Sources and Replaced it with Fully Contaminated Engine-Intake Data AND Added a Degree to that!!) and Yet the Hard-Core Progressives (the Dimmer Ones at Least; Octopus, Shaw, RN, wd, etc.) in a Desperate and Pitiful Attempt to Hold Onto this Discredited Concept of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming Treated it Like it Was the Second-Coming of Niels Bohr

And they call Trump an idiot (not that I disagree with that of course). 

On the Fact that Nigerian-Born American Families Actually Make About 7% More than White Families Do - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ethnic_groups_in_the_United_States_by_household_income

Hm, Nigerian privilege?

On the Fact that (Based on the Seminal Bar Passage Study of 1999 to 2004) a Black Student with a College GPA of 3.3 and an LSAT Score of 160 Has a 200% Better Chance of Passing the Bar on His or Her First Attempt if that Student Goes to Fordham Law School Rather than Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cornell, Penn, Duke, or NYU Law School (I Refer You to the Taylor/Sander Book, "Mismatch", for a More In-Depth Analysis)

It's called mismatch and it happens when affirmative action students go to colleges where they are ill-prepared to compete and frequently either drop out completely or graduate and never pass the bar exam. And it's a tragedy because a lot of these affirmative action blacks could have attended schools such as Fordham, Syracuse, American U, etc. and done extremely well (colleges tend to teach to the middle and the fact of the matter is that a lot of law school students are in the bottom 10% of their classes at Columbia and Penn, ass opposed to being at the 50th percentile somewhere else). Thank you, white liberals.

On the Mediocre, Pseudo-Professorial, Cringe-Inducing, Self-Important, Awkwardly Polysyllablic (to the Point of Hilarity), Pedantic, Condescending, Demagogic, Cartoonishly Partisan, Race-Hustling, Thin-Skinned, Intolerant, Straight Out of Central Casting, and Utterly Buffoonish True-Believing Leftist Blogger Named Octopus

To steal a phrase from Disraeli, the dude's "inebriated by the exuberance of his own verbosity." And can you even begin to imagine what it would be like sitting next to him on a long plane ride? Yikes, huh? 

On the Fact that Donald Trump Recently Had a Sit-Down with Henry Kissinger

So the dude's getting his foreign policy advice from a war-criminal now (Genghis Khan, Stalin, and Napoleon weren't taking his calls, I guess). Just great (and just when you though that it couldn't get any weirder).

On the Fact that the Brits Were Smart Enough to Close Down Their Consulate in Benghazi in 2012 but Not the Good Old U.S.A.

There are only two logical explanations. a) Total incompetence by our government or b) the possibility that we were involved in some clandestine operation (gun-running to Syrian rebels and God only knows who else, would be my guess) which would have made it difficult to leave. Either way it's embarrassing and I really wish that we could simply mind our own damned business for a change.......Like Gary Johnson wants us to. Hint, hint.

So, Just How Incomprehensible IS Michelle Obama's Senior-Year Princeton Thesis?

It makes Eugene Ionesco read like Willa Cather. Seriously, try reading it.

On the Fact that (According to Sean O'Callaghan's Book, "To Hell or Barbados") in Great Britain, Numerous Pamphlets Were Published All Throughout the Early 17th Century Which Routinely Depicted the Irish as a Vile, Subhuman Species, Undeserving of Pity and Mercy

Not that the Puritans of England needed much prompting to hate the Irish, mind you, but when you also get a dose of verbiage such as, "....the very offal of men, dregs of mankind, reproach of Christendom the bots that crawl of the beast's tail....", etc., it's easy to see how that virulent hatred could morph into something far worse; i.e., ethnic cleansing.

On Those MMA Fans Who Boo from the Audience Whenever There's an Insufficient Level of Carnage Taking Place Inside Ring

So they're essentially rooting for traumatic brain injury and early onset dementia, in other words. How sick.

On the Claim by Some Bleeding-Hearts that if Only There Were More Libraries in the Inner-City (I Actually Saw a Lady Argue that on a Colin Flaherty Video) the Crime-Rate Would Go Down

Just as long as the libraries aren't made out of wood..........................................................................................P.S. And, yes, it would certainly help if the schools started turning out kids who could, you know, READ (as opposed to those who have only mastered violent video games, fighting, getting wasted, getting knocked-up, etc.)!!!

On the Fact that (According to Former Prison Psychologist, Marlin Newburn) the Typical Street-Predator Sees Empathy as a Weakness and Brutality as Something to Be Honored

  And being that many psychologists will tell you tell you that personality disorders (with what I've described in the title obviously being one) are the most difficult forms of mental illness to ameliorate, that is probably why the recidivism rate is so staggeringly high. I mean, I get it that the left is tied at the hip to the rehabilitation paradigm and all but maybe the best strategy for some of these folks (for their safety and for the community's) is just to keep them locked up, at least until they have a marketable skill.

Sunday, May 15, 2016

On the Odds that Ed Koch or the First Mayor Daley Would Have Ever Given Those Barbarians in Baltimore, "Space to Destroy"

Close your eyes. That.

On the Fact that The Washington Post (According to Mr. Woodward Himself) Supposedly Has 20 Reporters Now Trying to Dig Up Dirt on Donald Trump

I don't have a problem with it.......Just as long as they have at least 15 doing the same to Hillary (looking into Benghazi, her e-mail, the Clinton Foundation, etc.).

On the Claim that Poverty Cause Crime, Especially Black Crime

It's absurd and if you don't believe me just look at the history of America; the fact that for the first 120 or so years of the country pretty much everybody was poor and the crime rate was nothing like it currently is in much of the black community. If you're asking me, a far more logical explanation for the high crime rate is the fact that the out-of wedlock birth-rate in the black community is now well over 70% and that because of this there presently exists a veritable army of young black kids with little to no male supervision destroying their communities. Yes, it's a tougher message and you'll probably be labeled a racist for delivering it but sometimes the truth hurts and being that the strategy of pouring money down a rat-hole (as they've done in Baltimore and other cities) hasn't worked, it's probably worth an attempt.....................................................................................................P.S. And, yes, the drug war has also produced a shitload of unintended consequences (many of them bloody) and I would absolutely tweak that sucker, too.

Saturday, May 14, 2016

On Lee Remick Giving Jimmy Stewart a Legitimate Excuse for Stammering (One of His Enduring Trademarks) in the Otto Preminger Classic, "Anatomy of a Murder"

Can't knock the guy in that I probably wouldn't have been able to talk at all. Lee Remick, yeah!!!

On the Fact that Frederick Douglass Risked His Life Learning How to Read as a Slave in Maryland and Now We Have Idiot Rappers Like Tef Poe Using that Same English Language to Write Garbage Like THIS

"Dear white people (nah, no stereotyping here) if Trump wins young niggas such as myself are fully bent on inciting riots everywhere we go. Just so you know."............So after a bloody Civil War, desegregation, sweeping civil-rights legislation, trillions in welfare spending, a massive reduction in the poverty rate, and decades of affirmative action, it still isn't enough and the threats of violence continue?...Boy, does the black community ever need some new leadership and, yeah, maybe rediscover guys like Douglass, Booker T. Washington, etc.. It sure as hell can't hurt.

On the Fact that (According to Princeton Sociologists Thomas Espenshade and Chang Y. Chung) if Racial Preferences for Blacks and Hispanics Were Completely Eliminated at the Most Highly Selective Schools Such as Stanford, Cornell, and Amherst, Approximately Four Out of Five of the Open Slots Would Go to East-Asian and Indian-Asian Students

More prima facie evidence that Asians are getting fucked-over by the elitist do-gooders in academia, the media, and government....So much for equality and social justice in any sort of logical way, huh?


On the Fact that I Left the Episcopalian Church 35 Years Ago and So Far No One's Come After Me

86% of Anglicans obviously not believing in death for apostasy. Thank God (pun intended).

Friday, May 13, 2016

On the Fact that Donna Reed Once Stared as Lana Turner's Plain-Jane Sister in a Movie ("Green Dolphin Street")

I am so, SO, not down with that.

On the Epidemic of Black on Gay Violence in Dallas, Texas

CNN's Don Lemon once proclaimed that the worst thing that a person (a male, especially) could be in the black community is gay. Damned if he wasn't right.

On the Fact that Radical Academic Feminists Now Believe that a) Gender Is Predominantly a Social Construct and b) Transgender Folks Are Born that Way

This is so typical of the hard-core true-believer in that they will quite literally interpret ANYTHING in a manner that reinforces their agenda and if it ever contradicts at some juncture then so be it.......AND being that they spout this shit mostly in front of naive, afraid to challenge the teacher, and snot-nosed 20 year-olds, they rarely if ever get called on it....So glad that I don't have a brain-dead job like that.

Thursday, May 12, 2016

On the Fact that in Prison the King of the Yard Is Frequently a Cop-Killer

And why should the prison yard be any different than the street when it comes to these thugs (murdering providing the ultimate in street-cred and, yes, when it's a cop that you're offing, watch out!!)? Seriously?

On a Potential Conversation Between These Two Guys

I strongly suggest that you pack a lunch (not to mention, every ounce of your patience).

Note to Bernie Sanders

  In 2014, the top 1% paid 38% of all income taxes, the top 5% paid 59% of all income taxes, and the top 10% paid 70% of all income taxes. You keep on saying that the rich should pay "their fair share" of taxes but you never define what that should be. Please inform us, what SHOULD these percentages be? And, yes, be specific (as opposed to simply sloganeering, demagoguing, etc.). Thank you - http://taxfoundation.org/article/summary-latest-federal-income-tax-data-2015-update

On the Fact that the Premier Player on the Mavericks Continues to Be 38 Year-Old Dirk Nowitzki

Yeah, when your best player is 12 years away from getting bombarded with AARP correspondence, that's definitely a problem...............................................................................................P.S. And, yes, so much for Mr. Cuban being a genius owner. 

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

On the Fact that, Even When You Account for Payroll, Excise, and Other Taxes, the Bottom Quintile of American Taxpayers Only Pays 1.8% of Their Income to the Feds - http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxvox/current-law-distribution-taxes

 Yeah, Bernie tends to gloss over this fact (if in fact he even knows about it). Big surprise, huh?

On the Fact that Idiot Senator Barbara Boxer Attempted to Discredit Energy Expert, Alex Epstein, as a Philosopher and Not a Scientist and Then Right After that Started Reciting Scripture from the Green Bible

    It's the same old pitiful and hypocrisy ladened (the fact that she seemingly doesn't have an issue with Al Gore spouting his discredited shit) strategy of trying to discredit people while entirely avoiding the points that they make (and Epstein made at least a half dozen unimpeachable ones). Boxer (and, yes, the irony of her words and histrionics she was completely oblivious to) just happens to be a maestro at it, that's all.

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

On the Fact that Hollywood Is Apparently Kicking Around the "Idea" of a Reagan Alzheimer's Comedy

Yeah, and if you get enough of these brain-dead progressive bloggers (Tao, Octopus, wd, etc.) to screen the thing, you won't even need a laugh-track..............................................................................................P.S. Of course the truly offensive part in my book is the fact that they would never do such a thing like to a liberal Democrat (even a loathsome one like FDR) 'cause they're so in the tank for them. You gotta be even-handed. You gotta be.

On the Fact that as Many as 60,000 Men Every Year Are Exonerated from Fatherhood by DNA Tests and Yet a Large Chunk of Them Are Still Made to Pay Child Support by the Courts - http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2007/07/who-s-your-daddy/305969/

And this shit doesn't constitute indentured servitude (the fact these men are forced by the state to pay thousands of bucks every year for potentially 18 years to support a youngster that they had no hand in bringing into the world).......how exactly?............That and where in the hell is the male privilege and patriarchy?..."Cause they seem to be MIA again.

Monday, May 9, 2016

On the Fact that the Main Complainants in the Ghomeshi Trial Repeatedly Lied Under Oath (Lucy Decoutere Being the Biggest Pinocchio) and May Have Even Colluded with Each Other Prior to the Trial and Not a Single One of Them Was Charged with Perjury

Yeah, what do you say that we call this, female privilege (the fact that men are almost always treated far more harshly by the criminal justice system than women are - https://www.law.umich.edu/newsandinfo/features/Pages/starr_gender_disparities.aspx), and ditch the patriarchy bullshit for a while? That's what I'm gonna do.

A Regression Toward the Mean Indeed

Seriously, though, have you ever witnessed a more pronounced and precipitous decline in intellectual capacity from one generation to the next than this one (junior, not just being a global warming alarmist nut-job, but one who actually wants to bring skeptics like Roy Spencer, Richard Lindzen, Judith Curry, and Piers Corbyn - learned people with an intellect far greater than his - before a war crimes tribunal - seriously)? 'Cause I surely haven't.

On Nature and Equality

The former never got the memo about the latter and it is highly doubtful that it ever will (nonstop social-engineering notwithstanding).................................................................................................P.S. And, no, I don't live in Europe or CanaDUH so you can't arrest me. Sorry.

On the Fact that Even Though There Exists No Reason WHATSOEVER to Believe that the Primary Ancestors of the Egyptian Population Emerged and Evolved Outside of Northern Africa (Dental Samples Have Especially Shown a Biological Constancy Over the Millennia) or that the Egyptian Culture Itself Hasn't Essentially Remained Intact, There Still Remain Afrocentric Buffoons Out There Desperately Trying to Secure Credit for the Accomplishments of Ancient Egypt

The sooner that black people relinquish these farcical and discredited myths (another ridiculous one is the assertion that sub-Saharan blacks came to America 40,000 years before the Native-Americans arrived via the Asian land-bridge - http://www.unl.edu/rhames/courses/current/vansertima.pdf), the sooner that they can get on to more important items; improving their human capital, strengthening the family structure, education reform, etc.. And, besides, aren't there enough ACTUAL black heroes (Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Ed Brooke, Thomas Sowell, etc.) that they don't have to pedal around these stupid "we wuz kings" narratives? I certainly think so.

On the Fact that American Women Didn't Have the Right to Vote Til 1919

Yeah, that was bad. But you know what else was? Try the fact that men got drafted and served up as disposable fodder for a bunch of moronic wars (the Mexican-American War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine War, and WW1). I mean, you can't cast a ballot when you're dead, right?

On the Fact that (According to Human Rights Advocate and Newsbud and Boiling Frogs Post Contributor, Filip Kovacevic) a Significant Percentage of Citizens in Montenegro Do NOT Wish to Join NATO and Yet it Seems to Be Happening Anyway

Yet another example of the people being smarter than their government (the fact NATO less than two decades ago had been bombing the daylights out of them, the fact that them joining NATO would just isolate Russia even more AND piss them off, the fact that a NATO alliance could conceivably get them involved in military issues totally unrelated to their own national security, etc.) is what this one looks like. Big time.

On the Fact that (According to Researchers Such as Erin Pizzey and Warren Farrell) Male Victims of Domestic Abuse Are More Likely to Get Arrested Themselves than They Are to Be Helped by the System - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/12061547/How-male-victims-of-domestic-abuse-often-end-up-getting-arrested-themselves.html

Patriarchy, patriarchy, where for art thou, patriarchy? 

Nixon's Real Record.......and Why the Left Should Love the Guy

The fact that he a) created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, b) created the National Transportation Safety Board, c) created the Environmental Protection Agency, d) created the Consumer Product Safety Commission, e) quadrupled the staff of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, f) increased the budget of the National Endowment for the Arts by over 600%, g) convened a White House nutrition summit, h) declared a federal War on Hunger and a War on Cancer, h) campaigned for national health insurance and a government-run daycare program, i) instituted the first federal Earth Week and signed the Clean Air Act of 1970, j) imposed nationwide controls on wages and prices, k) created the Alternative Minimum tax, l) closed the "gold window' that had allowed the dollar to be converted to a precious metal standard, m) warmed relations with the Soviet Union, n) opened American ties with Communist China, o) negotiated and entered into an anti-ballistic missile treaty with the Soviet Union, p) negotiated and entered into a nuclear arms control agreement with the Soviet Union known as SALT 1, q) unilaterally renounced the use of biological weapons and negotiated a Biological Weapons Convention, r) increased federal spending by over 9% a year from 1969 to 1974, and s) negotiated an end to the Vietnam War (granted, that one's complicated). Yes, there was also Watergate BUT THAT WAS NOTHING COMPARED TO FDR AND LINCOLN (their abuses of power have been well chronicled here; Lincoln's closing down of newspapers, his jailing of dissenters, etc. FDR's widespread use of wiretapping, his internment of Japanese-Americans, etc., the targeting of civilians by both) . NOTHING!! The fact of the matter here is that Nixon's most unpardonable sin was that the dude was a 20th Century Republican whose last name wasn't Eisenhower or Rockefeller. Period, end of discussion.................................................................................................P.S. And, no, being a libertarian, I don't approve of a lot of what Nixon did. My only point was to show the rank hypocrisy and partisanship of some on the hard left. That's all.............Sources; Ira Stoll, Tom Wicker, Jodie T. Allen, David Greenburg, President Nixon himself.

On the Fact that (According to the Richard Sander/Stuart Taylor Book, "Mismatch") Law Schools Provide Four Times as Much Financial Aid to High-Income Blacks as They Do to Low-Income Whites and Asians

And this reduces income inequality.......how exactly?..............................................................................................P.S. And, yes, the reason that these institutions do this is because they're trying to beef up their minority enrollment and what better way to do it than to give benefits to folks who don't really need them? What a fucking racket.

On Hash-Tag "Kill All Men"

So, where are the anti-hate-speech folks on this one? Nowhere, would be my guess. 

Richard Nixon, Unplugged

"We should not make the mistake of trying to impose our system on nations that have neither the traditions nor the institutions to make democracy work." That is brilliant, as much as I hate to say it and, yes, the final score; Nixon 1 George W. Bush and Barack Obama 0.

On the Fact that (http://mra-uk.co.uk/?p=379) the Teaching of Physics Is Currently Being Reformed in Many Colleges to Make it More Appealing and Accessible to Girls (Making it More Context-Based and "Humanistic", Examining the Historical, Cultural, and Political Frameworks Behind it, etc.) - Dumbed-Down, in Other Words

So, not even the hard sciences can escape this tyrannical BS now. JUST GREAT.

On the Fact that We Are Actually on the Verge of Having to Watch Two of the Most Low-Ball and Distrusted Politicians in the Country (Clinton and Trump) Defecate on Each Other for the Next Five Months in What Is Bound to Be One of the Most Rancid Presidential Races in U.S. History

More and more I'm beginning to think that this existence thing of ours isn't actual but rather some virtual reality, hologram, dream, or video game. 'Cause I ask you here, what sane and cogent civilization would act like this? IT MAKES NO SENSE......................................................................................................P.S. And, yes, I'm begging you, at least consider voting for Johnson, whose honesty, integrity, competence, and sanity we cannot question (at least not to this ludicrous level).

On the Fact that I'd Still Waiting for John Oliver's 22 Minute Epic Diatribe Directed at Hillary Clinton (You Know, to Balance Out the Over-the-Top One that He Bludgeoned Trump with); One of the Biggest Piece of Shit Lawyers and Politicians Since Nixon

I can only hold my breath for so long, people.

On the Fact that the City of Ferguson Missouri Was Burnt to a Tinder Over What Was Essentially a Bald-Faced Lie and as Far as I Know the Only Folks to Apologize For it Were Journalists Don Lemon and Jonathan Capehart

Yeah, this is what really pisses me off about people like Sharpton, Harris-Perry, Lamont-Hill, Bryant, NOI shines, etc.; the fact that these folks NEVER have to pay a price for being wrong, saying dumb and divisive shit, etc.. I mean, it's almost as if they have this perpetual get out of jail free card which they KNOW that the white liberal will never ask him to relinquish. Carnage, notwithstanding.  

On the Epidemic of Black on Asian Violence that's Sweeping the Country - http://www.mercurynews.com/opinion/ci_15003665

Yeah, I guess that in the hierarchy of this whole inter-sectional and victimization mindset, Asians are a wee-bit further down the pecking-order these days (they're also being discriminated against at some America's finest colleges and universities), and so why not just sweep it under the damned rug?......Of course if the perpetrators were mostly white....... 

Which Bathroom Does She Use?

And, yes, it's a joke so don't get triggered. Triggered - LOL!!

On the Fact that Rachel Maddow Made a Monstrous Stink Recently Over the Fact that Ted Cruz Apparently Calls the Women's Bathroom the "Girl's Room"

Yeah, her micro-aggression radar must have been working overtime on that one and, no, not silly and thin-skinned enough (the buffoonery of Ted Cruz, aside).

On the Concept of Championing Diversity, Inclusion, and Tolerance Via the Mass Immigration of Folks from Cultures in Which These Very Concepts Are Totally Abhorred

This is "logic" that an average 8th grader would have been able to dismantle when I was a kid but which today is quite literally parlayed around ad nauseam by 35 year-old insular feminists as a form of spiritual and ethical enlightenment. Boy, has the West ever gotten stupid.

On the Fact that Only 33% of British Muslims Would Turn in a Terrorist to Authorities - http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/survey-reveals-chasm-between-muslim-values-and-rest-of-uk-d30hl55lk

And the solution is to allow in hundreds of thousands more of 'em? Apparently (this despite the fact that even Angela Merkel has conceded that multiculturalism has totally failed).

On the Fact that (at Least According to Most of the Sane, Non-Vacuous Scholars; Christina Hoff Sommers, Janice Fiamengo, Sally Satel, etc.) a Significant Percentage of the Gender Studies Programs in Canada and the U.S. Have Essentially Halted Open Discussion/Debate and Instead Are Engaging in a Form of Hard-Core and Miscreant-Driven Indoctrination in Which Radical Marxist Feminist Orthodoxy Is the Unquestioned Cynosure

And then these kids wonder why they can't even get a job flipping burgers (McDonald's tends not to hire folks with attitudes) after graduation (never mind pay back the student loan which financed this pitiful education).   

On the Fact that According to Some Feminists (Many in Canada Who've Been Critical of the Ghomeshi Verdict, for Example), it Doesn't Matter How Many Times that a Woman Says, "Yes, Yes, More, More", Tirelessly Pursues Her Supposed Abuser (Substantiated by a "Paper Trail"), or Even Lies Her Ass Off About the Event, the "Victim" Must Never be Doubted or Even Questioned as Consent Can Be Withdrawn Whenever a Woman Wants, Even AFTER a Consensual Act Has Taken Place (Months After in the Case of Ghomeshi)

Hopefully the "patriarchy" will display a backbone for once and put a screaming halt to this bullshit (and, yes, by bullshit I'm referring to a total evisceration of the rights of the accused that have been a such staple of Western canon for Centuries now).......................................................................................................P.S. This post is dedicated to Professor Janice Fiamengo from the University of Ottawa, one of the few sane people left at the "academy".

On the Fact that President Bush 2 Increased Federal Education Spending by 64.3% (from $42 Billion in 2001 to $69 Billion in 2008; the Handiwork of Him and Teddy Kennedy)

Yeah, he was a "big government conservative" for sure (Medicare spending also shooting through the roof).
