Katha Pollitt writes the feel-good article of the week

November 8, 2017 Bookworm 0

I’m not usually a person who revels in Schadenfreude, but I have to say that a primal scream from Katha Pollitt against Trump-land is incredibly gratifying. Katha Pollitt didn’t set out to write a feel-good article. In fact, she feels terrible — but it’s the reasons behind her feelings that [Read More]

A Common Sense Solution to Illegal Guns

November 7, 2017 Proof Positive 0

Liberals have been clamoring for some time to have “common sense” gun laws enacted. That sounds reasonable. Then, they proceed to regale us with the need for laws that are already on the books, or impractical ideas that would never work. Never fear! I have a solution. It’s not a [Read More]

“This investigation is starting again, for political purposes. This is another investigation of Hillary Clinton, long after she’s no longer a presidential candidate, no longer the Secretary of State, apparently there’s more interest in what happened seven years ago with Secretary Clinton than there is in the (phony Trump) investigation.

Reality-denying Progressives call MAGA supporters “losers”

September 29, 2017 Bookworm 0

Progressives again show their retreat from reality, this time with a t-shirt claiming MAGA supporters, whose candidate and agenda won, are “losers.” During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Donald Trump had promised “We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with the winning.” The [Read More]

Progressives’ crude political commentary about North Korea [NSFW]

September 27, 2017 Bookworm 0

Given a vexing, dangerous, and complicated problem like North Korea, Progressives reduce the issue to school-boy sniggering about sexual prowess. One of the things that distinguishes Progressives from Conservatives is that the former are certain that they’re very smart. For example, they point out that wealthy Blue enclaves have a [Read More]

Dreamers we Want, Dreamers we Don’t

Vassar Bushmills Memo to President Trump: Whatever dreamers get is ours to give, not theirs to demand, and while I agree we should allow many to stay, at the top of that criteria should be that single understanding, that America is a “gift” bestowed on them by not just this generation, [Read More]

A Modest Proposal Regarding Antifa*

September 4, 2017 Proof Positive 2

*with apologies to Jonathan Swift We all know that the vicious hooligans who call themselves “Antifa”, aside from having virtually no fashion style, or in all truth, no discernible intellectual ability, tend to dress in all black: black hoodie, mask, sunglasses, black slacks, black hearts…which makes it somewhat difficult to [Read More]

Science Points the Way to Antifa’s Achilles Heel

August 26, 2017 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills There is more than one level to Antifa activists. Many are for-hire initiates who join the ranks to vicariously sate their appetites, much like screaming girls on the rope line at a Beatles event, “groupies”, while a few more-experienced shock troops, with a few campaigns under their belts are poking people with pikes with nails in them, [Read More]
