Zombie Dropout

The other day M. wrote a post in which he was getting a bit weary of politics. I feel the same. Like anyone experiencing these overwhelming feelings of helplessness, I do what comes naturally; evade politics by watching shows. Not to be a braggadocio, but I missed my calling as a movie critic. Seriously, ask…

Cultural Marxism Goes Viral

White privilege, racism, micro-aggression, manspreading, the heteronormative patriarchy, income “inequality”, “social justice”, sexism, changing public service and military fitness/strength testing to accommodate weaker candidates), radical feminism, slut-shaming, fat-shaming, thin-privilege (yes, that’s apparently a thing now) are all considered “legitimate” by our intelligentsia and elitist politicians. Let’s call all of it what it really is –…

America Is Awesome!

This is the post in which I recognize that the Politico has gone Full Frontal Gruber once again: “Come to think of it, the 62 percent of Americans who described the economy as “poor” in a CNN poll a week before the Republican landslide in the midterm elections were also wrong. I guess that sounds…

Rule 5: Vintage Christmas

Been a while since I posted a Rule 5 – but Joe’s little trip down memory lane with Kells’ high school pics made me think of these. Back in the 40’s, Kells would have definitely been “nose art” on a B-17!

I’d Rather Fight Than Switch

I marvel at the soft bigotry within the Republican Party. No, I’m not talking about racism – I’m talking about Cruzism – the hatred of Ted Cruz simply because he is Ted Cruz. This bigotry can’t be based on Cruz’s ability to derail the GOP legislative agenda – because that would imply that the GOP…

I’m Sick of Insta-Memorials

I understand the urge to be sympathetic. I understand that people have the basic drive to be empathetic with victims of senseless violence. So I know how callous this is going to sound. For a while now, I have been disgusted by the instant memorials that pop up at the scenes of the crimes. The…

the kelleton key

A bit earlier I was chatting with B. on immuno therapy for people stricken with cancer. This is as fascinating to me as laser technology is in excluding healthy cells and targeting only affected ones. I’m also very excited by THC (yeah, I went there) therapy and stem-cell research (don’t freak; it’s through skin cells!)…

Let’s Grab the ‘Third Rail’ of Racism

DEFENDING THE LANGUAGE: Racism vs. Bigotry vs. Culture [NOTE: this one is long, but it is also important and complicated, so I took the time to make my case as best I could.  If you stay with it, I believe it may help you see the issues a bit more clearly.  If not…  Well, in that…

Are You TEA Party or Tyrant (there is no middle ground)?

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: You are either Pro TEA Party, or You are Pro Tyranny (there’s no ‘middle ground’ on this issue) Are you Pro TEA Party or Pro Tyranny, Slavery/Indentured Servitude, Lawlessness and Licentiousness?  Yes, I understand that it is fallacious to argue “You’re either for me or against me”  — except when there are…

Micro-Racism and “White Privilege”

Micro-racism. Hell, if they can make up micro-aggression, I can make up micro-racism. Micro-racism is when a member of a particular racial group complains that other groups cannot understand their plight because the skin color of the other group is different from theirs. It is the most curious thing to see the same people who…

A Little ‘Fairness’ in Your ‘Justice?’

DEFENDING THE LANGUAGE: Justice vs. Fairness Like my post on ‘Tolerance vs. Acceptance,’ this is another post where it is necessary to read carefully and think through the point(s) I am trying to make because, as in the other post, we are dealing with a force that is actively trying to change society by manipulating language. …
