No Chains so Heavy as Those of the Mind

Many of you have likely heard the antique fable of the elephant rope. For those who have not, it proceeds from a circus: As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No…

Psakis in Pindostan

Or how I learned to enjoy laughter in The Motherland. The Russians are not overly impressed with America. There is a country in North America that you’ve never heard of. Its name is ‘Pindosia,’ ‘Pindostan’ or, more officially, ‘United States of Pindostan,’ and you will be told that one part of it, called Alaska, used…

The Dumb are a Goldmine

Have you ever heard of Paul Graham? Prior to a few hours ago, I had not. Though he is apparently a venture capitalist of some vague renown, specializing in the subsidized gestation of technology concerns. Certainly a worthy endeavor, and one of obviously greater priority than the mere future of a nation. Though that was…

The Great Troll

I was reflecting on an article linked recently by commenter Northern Refugee. It describes a married couple in a small Southern town who have set about doing God’s will by accumulating a battalion of third-world urchins. The tone of the article is obviously glowing and includes the requisite encomia from various locals for this good…

The Heart Beats

I’ve always thought the issue would find its final resolution in Europe. Whether out of romantic nostalgia for ancestral homes, the plain mendacity of Nation of Immigrants propaganda there, or the sense that our last modest plot on Earth won’t be yielded meekly. Perhaps from the notion that psyches of the diaspora are irretrievably shattered…or…

This being a rebuke that a platoon of plucky bloggers has attempted to rectify by speaking forthrightly on the…

Wings

American-Africans continued this weekend to win friends and influence people. Specifically the now bereaved families of police slain in both New York and Florida. Though any cursory review through the comments, particularly of the latter, indicates a broader influence permeating deeply into collective psyches. Remarkably, effects of this are even being in expressed in the…

The Easiest Hack

Readers have no doubt been advised of the Sony computer hack that came to reveal Hollywood’s endemic racism, among other items. So sordid are the details that authority over the studio was simply relinquished to Al Sharpton. I must admit that the complete rehabilitation of no-longer fat Albert has been breathtaking. This dumb, rhyming, mush-mouthed,…

Sacajawea Shows the Way

Most readers have likely heard of Senator Elizabeth Warren, a democrat representing the Cherokee nation. For our foreign readers who may not be familiar with the phenotype, below are photographs to orient your frame of reference. I don’t detect much resemblance and so am a bit skeptical of claims to tribal lineage by the nut in…
