Biden and Parliament’s 1689 Declaration of Rights

It’s surprising how closely certain aspects of modern Democrat rule parallel the British Parliament’s grievances with James II in 1689.  In 1688, England had its Glorious Revolution, which was glorious because Parliament kicked out King James II without firing a shot. It then invited William I and Mary (James’s daughter) [Read More]

The Democrats are preempting the possibility of an armed rebellion

The nature of the modern military and Democrat trends in staffing the military make an armed rebellion impossible. I sometimes see people on the internet claiming that if the Democrats push conservatives too far – anything from banning meat to erasing the Second Amendment to publicly hanging the people who [Read More]

The wonders of leftist cognitive dissonance

It’s strange that, with full color, x-ray vision into the fetus’s world, leftists can both celebrate that view and still be pro-abortion. I grew up as a pro-abortion Democrat. I was unable to maintain that attitude when I saw the first ultrasound of my daughter at ten or eleven weeks [Read More]

A slo-mo anti-mask rebellion

I’m not the fiery rebellious type but, today, we mounted a quiet mask rebellion and — hot damn! — it felt wonderful. I live in the Southeastern corridor that’s been affected by the ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline. And yes, I do think it was a real ransomware attack, not [Read More]

Battles over AIDS privacy should block vaccine passports

AIDS was a very scary disease in the 1980s but gays successfully fought to keep their status private. The same reasoning should apply to COVID vaccinations. It’s entirely possible that I am completely misremembering my 1980s and 1990s history, but I don’t think I am. If I’m correct about it, [Read More]

Maybe Biden was right about the grave threat of White supremacy in America

Using the left’s time-honored practice of redefining words to help their politics, I think Biden was right that America has a White supremacy problem. Because I write about politics for a living, I forced myself to watch Joe Biden’s entire address to Congress. You can see my general overview here. [Read More]

Idle thoughts of an idle blogger

I haven’t been posting on my blog but I’ve still been thinking about politics and world issues. This is a potpourri of those thoughts. Does anyone today remember Jerome K. Jerome? He was a Victorian-era author of whimsical books. I believe his best-known book was Three Men in a Boat, [Read More]
