The Hart-Celler Rubicon

Is America burdened with a President that heads one of three co-equal branches of the federal government…or with an emperor? The former is reputedly obliged to obey and enforce written laws, while the latter enjoys the latitude of fiat. And just because some withering scrap of paper indicates a preference is not a determining factor.…

I Swear by Apollo the Physician

I have long predicted that health care in America will follow education’s trajectory, which will itself continue to trace a long unpalatable arc into the sea. Regarding the former, it is a “free” entitlement for which we are all going to pay dearly. Though of course that statement requires qualification: it is a benefit for…

Diversion is the Intellect at Play

Whether right, wrong, good, or wicked, no one reading or commenting at a site like this is a conformist. Here the zeitgeist finds no refuge in its pieties we flout. Though as man is a schooling creature, how many here ever glance up occasionally to note how vast the gulf from the other fish? I…

He Coulda Been a Contender

If America had been burdened with something less than an utterly corrupt media, it would have been interesting to hear a reporter ask President Obama the following innocent question: How are you teaching your daughters about their white heritage?

But it’s a fascinating example of hysteria’s wave effect. There was the book, the slides, the hockey stick, and Kyoto. All covered in the media with its…

The Mirage of Liberal Ascendence

Is liberalism a movement encompassing a raft of coherent and principled positions? Or is it more simply a malign white disembowelment project? Obviously something with as broad a range and disparity of parts as that ideology would produce many answers, most interestingly if respondents were induced to candor. It’s a question very much worth the…

Moats

I have previously opined on the business opportunities soon to blossom in the moat development and maintenance industry. This will occur as more and more people, in descending order of social strata, come to realize that this anticipated function is no longer being performed by the state. Before our descent into the periphery of post…

Atheist Pope Mocks Flying Spaghetti Monster

Continuing his break with tradition, Pope Francis is seeking to steer the Catholic Church into realms of theology some may consider unorthodox. The piece can be found here. Pope Francis called on the church to adapt to ‘changing conditions of society’ yesterday following a conference that rejected changes that would have softened the church’s stance…
