Healthcare in China is bad and China is dirty

Coronavirus
Life Happens

Let’s talk about coronavirus

With coronavirus dominating the news, I’ve had time to come up with a few thoughts. The bottom line: Trump’s doing the right things and I’m not panicking. I’ve been quiet about coronavirus. It’s unnerving and I can’t do anything to stop its spread, so there really hasn’t been much for [Read More]

Bernie’s so-called “rape fantasy” essay will not damage him

If you read Bernie’s 1972 “rape fantasy” essay, you realize he was protesting both violent porn and emotional gender inequality, not promoting rape.

This year’s race for president is an eerie repeat of the early days of the 1920 election season

A corrupt politician, a communist, a “government by expert” guy, and a pro-American iconoclast are running for president. This is 1920 all over again.

Trump may have been wrong about Bloomberg and the box, but there are other ways

On Sunday, Trump said that Mini Mikey Bloomberg would stand on a box during the debates, something Bloomberg denied. However, Mikey may have other plans….

Government

Prohibition and the Great Society show that the government should not legislate vast social trends

Because the government is a lagging, not a leading, indicator, its giant pieces of legislation almost always lead to perpetual bureaucracy and corruption. I was talking yesterday with a friend — a lifelong conservative — who said, “You know, if I’d been alive in the 1960s, I probably would have [Read More]

Manchester rape gangs, the Church of England, and marriage

It matters that the Church of England came out in favor of heterosexual marriage, for marriage is a bulwark protecting girls from Islamic sex trafficking. A few days ago, news broke that Manchester had joined the list of British cities in which gangs of Muslim men (mostly from Pakistan) systematically [Read More]

What the double endorsement at the New York Times tells us

Faced with a field of highly defective Democrat candidates, the New York Times hides behind identity politics to endorse two seriously flawed women. Yesterday, the New York Times came in for a good deal of both criticism and laughter when it endorsed not one but two candidates: Elizabeth Warren and [Read More]
