The End of The West

I know very little about fashion. As an academic, I rarely have to wear a suit and tie (although I usually try to dress reasonably — no T-shirt or jeans — because I’ve found my students take me more seriously if I dress the part). But I do know one thing about high fashion. If this ever really does become a trend, our civilization is doomed. Forget global warming or antibiotic-resistant bacteria or SARS. We’ll … Read more

Seriously? This is news how?

Gallup has a poll/study titled “In U.S., Depression Rates Higher for Long-Term Unemployed” which makes the claim that “Mental health poorest among those jobless for six months or more” as seen here:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The longer that Americans are unemployed, the more likely they are to report signs of poor psychological well-being. About one in five Americans who have been unemployed for a year or more say they currently have or are

An idea I am behind..

The next big bubble that will burst, if the wholehousing market or government money printing & incessant borrowing leftist agenda, and forced anti-savings money policies, which the Europeans have adopted, doesn’t blow up on us yet again, will be the student loan bubble. There is another $1.2 trillion of tax payer liability, waiting to blow up as the economic policies of the nanny staters create even more unemployment for the … Read more

Well, DUH!

Becoming a doctor is not an easy thing to do. You have to be gifted with a lot of mental acumen, work like a dog to have the grades to get into Med school (unless you can ride the affirmative action bus it seems), and have the constitution of a bull to make it through the internship process. And you pay through the nose to have this experience. It’s not uncommon for someone to finish … Read more

Parents Into the Machine

Lenore Skenazy recently put up this story out of DC. The basics are that two girls, ages 6 and 7, went into their backyard. Without the permission of their parents, they wandered away and ended up in a nearby mall. A stranger spotted them and called the police. If you’re familiar with how our legal system works, you know what happened next:

The police came with admirable speed. Somewhat less admirably, they chose to put

Prepare for more economic havoc

So, it seems that according to the NYT, whom I will admit is neither impartial or trustworthy when it comes to reporting the facts and truths about things the left does, that there was a ruling, not by any court but just by the rogue IRS agency that would deny employers the ability to not offer healthcare:

WASHINGTON — Many employers had thought they could shift health costs to the government by sending their

Another class warrior caught manipulating data?

The left, including our own Right Thinking leftists, have been telling us how bad the income inequality has become, thus justifying their believe they should be allowed to play god, and providing data from the fabled class warfare book recently put out by Thomas Piketty director of the Paris School of Economics and a self avowed marxist class warrior to make the case for their wealth redistribution schemes.

Pickity’s work makes the claim that income … Read more

Left caught posturing again.

So Obama, and most of the left that now seems totally missing in action when it comes to our rights and whatever the left has renamed the action against terrorism, were then, and are now, all full of shit. Back when Boosh was president we lived in a theocratic thugocracy, with people’s freedoms violated by things like the patriot act. Back then we tortured non-American terrorists, imprisoned them without due process, and violated all the … Read more

What a delusional idiot this narcissist is…

The narcissist in chief, at a circle jerk of marxist-fascist members of the left’s oligarchy, again tried to downplay a couple of the nightmarish disasters he has foisted on the American people. Playing his usual victim card, he again tried to pretend that it was the mean republicans that are in the wrong on Benghazi and Obamacare, and that the ill-informed American didn’t care:

President Obama chided Republicans for scrutinizing his administration’s handling of

Yes, We Are Going To Make You Look Like An Idiot

It is the consensus among some around here that the malaise we as Americans find ourselves in is nothing more than a speed bump, a temporary pause from the usual march to prominence, and that happy days are right around the corner. Sure, it is easier for the guy across the street to say ,”No big deal, it’s just a little smoke, chill”, when his neighbor is busy trying to put out the flames emanating … Read more
