HP Replenishes Gyno Poly Pipeline

I noted in the news today that Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman has announced her 2018 retirement from the company under a pall of speculation that she is eyeing the office of the President as her next strategic acquisition. Ms. Whitman, a California billionesse, made her fortune chaperoning Ebay’s early expansion—most notably its lucrative IPO…

Tax Reform with Purpose

Oh to be unburdened by life’s fleeting embrace. I am often envious of those who appear unmoved by haste in times of urgency. As one example, President Trump presumably understands the precariousness of his political position. He faces an array of opposition that is almost unprecedented. There is the Sword of Mueller swinging in a…

It’s perplexing how few people explicitly subscribe to the neighbor model of nations. One would think that what they openly embrace in their own lives would pass the quality assurance testing of their ideology. But it does not. Not even close. Because people who enforce property lines and only allow their own family members to…

Low Delusion is the Highest IQ

I’ve mentioned before that from an evolutionary perspective it is not the most intelligent who survive, but the least deluded.

In what is sure to be only one forward pair of a millipede’s appendages, the failed comedian Al Franken got spackled in the media today for sexual harassment.

Most excruciating for me was the realization that I am not going…

Big Wheels Keep on Turning

So here’s a question: if someone discovers the dusty diary of teenaged Dolores Peachman, who within it alleges sexual advances made in 1894 by Senator Patrick Leahy when he was 35, is he then prohibited from seeking a 17th term? Well certainly not if he’s a democrat naturally, but what’s the standard for non-progs? Are…

Do Look Down

There’s an interesting optical illusion in that the higher Peter Dinklage climbs up a giraffe’s neck, the taller he appears to be. Though rather than an imposing stature, his ascension actually represents increasing precariousness. The more towering he looks, the more unstable he is. That may sound gratifying if you hate being spit on by…

Dixie Drove Down

Those of you fearing a grim reanimation of Lee’s formidable Army of Northern Virginia will find comfort and respite in this report. Winthrop University recently released an illuminating survey of opinions in Dixie. To the acclaim of their perpetually considerate countrymen, the sons of Jackson and Forrest are now certain to cross the Potomac bearing…
