Democrats, losing and football
I've mentioned a lot of things that the Democrats and Democratic supports have done wrong and continue to do wrong, but this one seems to be the biggest right now. Not dealing with having lost by the rules of the game being played. Mind you, I'm not one of ...

Don't think of an elephant
I read Don't Think of an Elephant!: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate by George Lakoff . In a way, Lakoff says what I was failing to say in Why I hate the Left , which is that the Left is fucking garbage at communicating its message. It's not just the ...

He has sounded forth the trumpet
This is my prediction. Feel free to come back to this when something has come to definitively disproven and say "I told you so." For the time being, it seems the most likely outcome to my view. I think the son of a bitch will continue to do worse and wors...

Princess of power
Why am I watching She-Ra: Princess of Power with my son? Well, first of all, having a five year old named Conan, I am always looking for excuses to show him beginner sword and sorcery. I think the time for Thundarr the Barbarian will be with us again soon....

The Marx Brothers
So, I went through and re-watched, mostly, and watched the Marx Brothers catalog in the last few weeks. I had read Raised Eyebrows: My Years Inside Groucho's House by Steve Stoliar , mostly on a whim. In doing so, I was reminded how long it had been since...

Listen, liberal
I just finished Listen, Liberal by Thomas Frank , which I loved and think should be essential reading for everyone wondering how the 2016 election came out as it did. The Democratic Party , Democratic voters and the various unaffiliated liberals who don't ...
