The Social Justice League of America

Woke happened, not because it was right, smart, necessary, or inevitable, it happened because an ambivalent and/or afraid America simply allowed to happen. I’ve been thinking a great deal about the evolution of wokeism. At first thought, wokeism could be considered an active ideology or movement, especially given the activism, the community organizing, the government…

What a Wicked Game to Play

The names may change, but the leftist media game remains the same. To a large degree, news reporting, especially cable news, began its decline in quality when the element of entertainment began to play a increased factor in what and how the networks decided to present the “news”. It is the same as how websites…

Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia!

Brandon won! Even more surprising than Brandon’s performance in Virginia, he is even with Phil Murphy in Jersey (as of this writing, at least). Jersey still as the Democrat ballot reserve bank working for them, so a GOP win there is unlikely at this point. It still is hilarious to watch Democrats attack the wins…

Stalin, Il Duce, FDR and President Brandon

In 1922, Leon Trotsky got an ice ax in the back for his disloyalty to Stalin. Now medical professionals and first responders are getting the ax as well. Medical personnel and first responders are getting a lesson in authoritarianism as practiced by collectivist politicians. As a historical fact, this isn’t anything new. That they would…

Trusting Democrats – What a Difference a Decade Makes

A post in which I detail a little amateur social experimentation. A few days ago, I conducted a little social experiment. While looking for something I referenced in the past, I ran across something I did and documented about a decade ago. During a debate about the increasingly intrusive actions of government into our daily…

This is the America I Know

There are forces these days, acting in the open, the aim of which is to destroy America. One argument often heard is that since the Founders didn’t abolish slavery in the Constitution, the lofty ideas in the Declaration of Independence – and those in the Constitution itself – are all lies, and America’s founding is…

The Great Coarsening

“How dare you?!” cries the Biden administration. I know I cannot state empirically that our societal and commercial interactions have taken on a somewhat coarser edge, but anecdotally, I can cite some recent experiences that seem to indicate our society has changed and is continuing to change, and not for the better. The first happened…

Lie Back and Think of England

“Lower your expectations” is cover for failed policies. “Lower your expectations” is more than the demand from the Washington Post to cope with Biden’s disastrous economic policies, it is the theme of the entire Biden presidency. After a lifetime of begin taught to expect more, to be more, it is very difficult for me to…

The Lottery

“Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.” The question of whether mankind is inherently good or evil is an interesting one, and it gets even more interesting when one overlays that good/evil dichotomy over the top of systems of governance. Many in the psychological community argue that humans are born amoral, neither good nor bad,…

Rule of the Deep State Technocracy

Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of what the Democrats have done over the past 15 years or so (and continue to do) isn’t really the process or the damage they have done to our governing institutions. While that was and is devastating, the fact they have actively encouraged and condoned actions which, under a Republican…

Gradually, and Then Suddenly

Given that America is already paying for Biden’s agenda, I think it is appropriate to ask: What has America gained for what it has cost? And keep in mind, the big hammer hasn’t even dropped yet. There are massive spending plans working their way through a Democrat Controlled Congress that are on top of Covid…

Optimistic Pessimism

I’ve been thinking and feeling for a while that since the results came in from the 2020 election, our existence has felt a lot like an occupation or an exile in our own land. I know what I write is generally pessimistic, sometimes I exaggerate or enhance as tools to increase attention, but I do…

Getting America to Church on Time

It can be argued the revolution against collectivism will begin in the sanctuaries of our churches rather than in the streets of our cities. Socialism, and the authoritarianism that follows, is on our doorstep. It is being forced upon us for our own good, so we are told. Capitalism has failed, freedom is for suckers,…

A Mostly Peaceful Civil War

If two DC Republicans have a disagreement over where to go for lunch, the Democrat/Media complex screams “Look, America! The GOP is engaged in a civil war! An existential fight for their party’s soul!” And yet, a true civil war for the soul of the Democrat Party rages unabated and in the open, and nobody…

Armchair Psychology

A post in which I combine observable cues, McDonald’s, dementia, my family, and Joe Biden to make an amateur diagnosis. When people face new or unfamiliar situations, they seek ways to define and therefore, understand them. In many cases people search for and find enough data to process so they can place the situation in…

Aspheterism, Pantisocracy, Marxism and Utopianism

Before Karl Marx, there was Robert Southey. Southey was an English poet, historian, biographer, and essayist, rising to become Poet laurate of the United Kingdom in 1813, a position he held until his death. Americans outside the literary community likely have scant knowledge of Southey, but no doubt have been touched by his work –…

The Incredible Self-Immolating President

Everything is now proceeding as I have foreseen. Sorry for the day-old news – by now, you have probably seen or heard about Pelosi’s Freudian slip. She referred to the agenda allegedly belonging to Biden as Obama’s “Build Back Better” agenda. Not really a surprise to anyone. It has been clear for a while Biden…

President Joker and Vice President Harley Quinn

Any sentient American must be looking at the events of the past several weeks with slack-jawed disbelief. I know I am. The magnitude and depth of evil we are experiencing has only heretofore been captured on the pages of graphic novel/comic book fantasies. This morning, it is reported that the 12,000 – 18,000 Haitians residing…

Self Governance in the Words of Burke, Madison, Acton and Hayek

In America, our government does not draw legitimacy simply from elections. A government of the people, for the people and by the people is not a guarantee of liberty because, as history teaches, elections can be manipulated and a corrupt people will elect corrupt governments. Edmund Burke said: “Among a people generally corrupt, liberty cannot…
