Bookworm Beat 9/18/2018 — the Kavanaugh fraud edition and open thread

Leftist responses to Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh indicate pretty strongly that they know they’re fraudulent, plus much more on current topics. On the Kavanaugh accusations, the Left’s line is “don’t ask so we won’t have to tell.” Actually, that’s not quite what Clown News Network reporter Chris Cillizza said. When [Read More]

Stinchfield: Death and Destruction Features of Socialism (video)

The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.

Fascist Starbuck’s Attack!

In June of 2017 I wrote Starbuck’s: They Don’t Stand With America, which was the tale of Kayla Hart, who committed the grievous social justice crime of ordering coffee in a Starbuck’s while wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt.

Several articles in the news recently combine to highlight a salient point about today’s Democrat party. The first is from Dan Balz, at Wapo, the [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 3/30/17 — tight-knit communities, nuclear families, and individual worth

Looking at this grab-bag post, I can see the common thread: valuing tight-knit communities, nuclear families, and each individual’s worth. I know why Utah’s welfare is working. Megan McArdle wrote a much-talked-about article in which she looked at Utah, which has extremely good and affordable social services. The key to [Read More]

This Time It’ll Work!

By: Mike McDaniel    The proponents of socialism—communism-lite—when they are willing to admit its failings—virtually never—always claim this time their brand of socialism will be better. This time it will be the perfection socialists have always claimed it must inevitably be. Why? Because they’re much smarter than previous socialists, because they [Read More]
