Do you have to throw away your Good Samaritan duties when you become a Libertarian? Ron Coleman, busting out some of his Greatest Hits of 2008, says that the libertarian perception of selfishness is what keeps him away. There is something worse than your own wasted potential which, after all, can take tremendous efforts to […]

The Misogyny of the Left On Display Again

The Misogyny of the Left On Display Again

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Progressives are only tolerant of those who agree with them. Here’s yet another example of that principle at work. For another recent example, go back and look at the coverage of Hillary Clinton as she ran against the Progressive Messiah Barack Obama. Uglier treatment of a […]

It is, apparently, far too much to ask that the religion writer for Newsweek know a bit about religion. Actually, that’s not fair. Miller knows quite a bit about religion. Alas, the religion she knows about is one she made up right on the spot that just happens to fit perfectly into the strawman she’s […]

William Ayers Whitewashes History and the Blood on His Hands

When I heard that Bill Ayers had an op-ed in today’s New York Times, I thought I’d have some fun with the soggy little simp. After all, it’s not every day you get a living, breathing, whining 60′s leftover coming out into the light reeking of fake humility and patchouli-stank for us to point and […]

Nothing Convinces the Voters Like a Little Insulting Musical Theater

Not content to bully old women and Mormons, the more mouthy proponents of Prop 8 decided to lay an assault on music and the theater. I give you: “Proposition 8, The Musical”. I present it to you as an object of ridicule and not much more. If there’s a good point, it’s hidden behind Jack […]

Anyone Remember Miguel Estrada? Hispanic Democrats in Congress Don't

It’s a shame the Democratic Party isn’t a touch less racist. If it was, then the Congressional Hispanic Caucus wouldn’t be stumping quite as hard for more Hispanic government appointees from Barack Obama. They would have already had a Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. But, as we learned thanks to leaked memos, Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin, […]

Do atheists in this country do nothing but sit around all day figuring out ways to be bigger jerks? OLYMPIA, Wash. — An atheist group has unveiled an anti-religion placard in the state Capitol, joining a Christian Nativity scene and “holiday tree” on display during December. The atheists’ sign was installed Monday by Washington members […]

Dreher: America's Bad Because of Too Much Freedom

A statement like this should never come from anyone calling himself a conservative. Today, the greatest threats to conservative interests come not from the Soviet Union or high taxes, but from too much individual freedom. Look around you: Americans have been poor stewards of our economic liberty, owing to cultural values that celebrate unfettered materialism. […]

National Review, on the bigotry and violence of the Proposition 8 supporters in California: The outbreak of attacks on the Mormon church since the passage of Proposition 8 has been chilling: envelopes full of suspicious white powder were sent to church headquarters in Salt Lake City; protesters showed up en masse to intimidate Mormon small-business […]

Gay Marriage Questions

I haven’t really said much about Proposition 8, the Constitutional amendment that passed in California except to say that strongarming old women and attacking peaceable Mormons is exactly the wrong way for gay marriage supporters to bring people to their cause. However, I will say that had I voted on the issue, I could have […]
