Memorial Day 2017

Two of my three kids were born in the mid-1990s. America – the country that defeated the two most modern and powerful military forces in history, across the entire planet, on land, sea and air, in 3-1/2 years – has been in ground combat with illiterate, unorganized, untrained, ill-equipped savages for nearly their entire lives. They have no recollection of an America not at war.

This is shameful.

My dad was born in 1912, raised a Quaker, and fought in the Pacific Theater of WW2. Why? He was an American. My mom was born in 1930, orphaned at 5, raised […]

Time to Treat Islam as an Invasive Species

In speaking of the Dawn of Man it is intriguing that the Left demands Darwin and the Right, Creationism, yet today reverse their roles. The Right wants to kill the invasive species attacking our niche of Liberty and Law; and the Left rejects defending this niche, demanding a form of Creationism: this is the way our world was created; quit trying to change the natural order – which is a slide to totalitarianism, with islam the current invasive species destroying this niche that evolved over thousands of years.
 
When an invasive species appears – the occupier of the niche being

Immutable characteristics vs merit

Constantly lecturing Americans in race & gender, Democrats fail to grasp that among those who actually work for a living it is merit alone that determines our preferences. Eschewing personal responsibility in all aspects of their lives – the performance of unionized teachers, pregnancy, their son or daughter not performing to the standard of MVP so demanding participation trophies – the Left is incapable of grasping that the rest of us choose friends, companies, mentors on merit alone.

The Left does value performance in some spheres. Acting. Singing. Athletics. Entertainment. But only when they themselves aren’t participating. You will see […]

The Ruling Class v. Liberty: What it means & What to do about it

This is an excellent column; long but worth the read.

To (grossly; IMO) summarize: Entropy is affecting and will continue to affect the Country Class, while the Ruling Class will continue to centralize order at the expense of our Liberty.

The dichotomy of the Country Class (my summary, not that of the columnist) seems to be that “leave me alone” is not an organizing principle, but if we don’t organize, we’ll never be left alone. In fact, we’ll continue to be subject to more and more progressive “order” and concomitant lack of liberty – until we have none.

They Don’t Belong in a Nation Built on Liberty

IMO the fault lines in America are nearly as bad as Yugoslavia, and the result needs to be the same. I have zero interest in any longer putting up with, or having my kids indebted by, or threatened by, a violent, totalitarian, anti-American Left. They do NOT belong in a nation built on liberty and freedom; they are its antithesis. Blue States need to be tossed from the Union, or Red states need to secede – with or without permission from a government lacking in the authority to withhold that (un-needed) permission.

The Berkeley kids want to behead Republicans. The […]
