Will Obama Be Indicted?

What did he know and when did he know it?

The Narrative is “Just Shut Up”!

Despite the occasional but fervent rantings of idiotarians like Matt Barber, gays in the United States generally do not seem to realize how good they have it.

What To Do Before TSHTF

Wretchard and his commenters are discussing what to do before there is a breakdown in civilization. Of course there is the usual – buy guns and ammo. But what else could help? Stock up on tools. Even cheap Chinese stuff if it is not too junky. Voltmeters and for those who are somewhat adept – […]

Discrimination against religion leads to discrimination in favor of religion?

Is there a conflict between freedom of speech and freedom of religion? I don’t think there is, but I think the courts may have screwed things up to the point where people are forgetting something about the nature of free speech.

If running really produced a high it would be illegal

For over 14 years, I have been running 3 miles nearly every other day. I had to force myself when I started back in 1995, and I hated running then and now. Really, I hate it about as much now as I did when I started. What I have never quite been able to understand […]

ACORNOMICS 101: An Economy by, for, and of the government

The ever-didactic newly-Mrs. McArdle, taking what we all hope is only a brief break from breeding a new race of libertarian superhumans (Suderhumans?), notes a disturbing trend: On the other end, requiring LTVs of 80-90% would have made the markets much less vulnerable to a correction. … Meanwhile, what’s actually happening? The percentage of FHA […]

I hope Polanski isn’t a metaphor for Poland!

In a painfully thoughtful piece, Hollywood insider Roger L. Simon looks at the Roman Polanski case, and concludes that he is a metaphor for Hollywood: Look, Polanski is weak like the rest of us. But in the end, there is something about him that is a metaphor for Hollywood – despite that he has been […]

Strategic non-blogging?

Gregory Kane thinks it would have been better for conservative bloggers to have ignored the Van Jones story in the hope that he would stay in office until shortly before the 2012 election– at which time his “exposure” could provide the much-needed ammo that the GOP will need to win: …did Republicans and conservatives do […]

All the truth we can respect

In her discussion of the amazing and incredible delay by the New York Times in reporting the ACORN child prostitution-enablement scandal, Ann Althouse derides this explanation from Times Public Editor Clark Hoyt: as more videos were posted and government authorities rushed to distance themselves from Acorn, The Times stood still.

Not with my money!

I’m all for free speech, and I’ve criticized McCain-Feingold quite harshly. But this headline — “Supreme Court appears poised to allow corporate contributions” — worries me, because corporations aren’t the independent entities they once were. WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court’s conservative bloc sounded poised Wednesday to strike down on free-speech grounds the nation’s historic ban […]
