They Asked For Equality – They Got Misery

Socialist Venezuela is a complete disaster. The people voted themselves a share of the wealth. They are now getting the misery. [Venezuela’s] economy shrinks 10 percent one year, an additional 6 percent the next, and inflation explodes to 720 percent. It’s no wonder, then, that markets expect Venezuela to default on its debt in the […]

We are ruled by tyrants

A couple was late arriving home, so their 11 year old boy waited for them and entertained himself playing in the family’s yard. This might sound like an unremarkable story, except the cops were called by some sicko busybody neighbor (some people get their jollies siccing the authorities on others), and the result? Felony charges […]

Paul Kantner – RIP

I saw the Airplane around ’74 in Carbondale. I saw Paul Kantner when he visited Rockford about 5 years ago. A great evening. More at Reason. A previous Classical Values post on Paul Kantner

The Great Global Warming Blizzard

Just as a lack of snow is proof of Global Warming, so is a record setting blizzard! No really. I’d be willing to bet that seemingly “normal” weather is also caused by Global Warming. You can’t be too careful!

The Importance Of Ignorance

Another title for the video might be “How To Start A Renaissance”.

Is the election over?

Or at least, has Hillary selected her running mate already? I saw this professional looking sticker today and wondered whether I missed something in the news. (No, that is not the actual license plate on the car.) I’m letting Coco have the last laugh on this. UPDATE: Many thanks to Sarah Hoyt at Instapundit for the […]

You Can’t Lick Pornography

You can’t lick pornography. Female Edition. Bondage, gang bang, double penetration, and rough sex–are all viewed twice as often by women as men. Isn’t it about time we fixed this inequality?

An echo, not a choice

Watching tonight’s debate, I do not want this person to be president. I’d rather have any of the Republican candidates. I’d rather have Bernie Sanders. In fact, as I said many times in 2008, I’d rather have Barack Obama. If given the choice between voting for an Obama third term and a Hillary Clinton first […]

“We have journeyed far from here”

Feminist Foreign Policy

Sweden has a feminist foreign policy. What does that mean? First some background. Sweden, a country of about 9.6 million people, is home to 700,000 Muslims. About 7% of the population. Many people in Sweden now feel that if Sweden can recognize Palestine, why not do the same with Western Sahara, a disputed territory unilaterally […]

They Were Both Named Mohamed

There was a shoot up at a Calgary, Ontario Alberta night club. One patron was seriously injured. Bouncers at the night club captured the shooter before he could do more significant damage. Police arrested the suspected gunman and the suspected driver of the getaway vehicle. A third person (name not released) was not captured. Police […]

“he did it in the name of Islam”

At least, that’s what he said: Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia. Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired 11 shots […]

Some Commentary On The Attacks In Cologne

The article is a bunch of “Don’t Be An Islamophobe” vomit. But I thought this comment was gold. BTW the rest of the comments that I have read are similar. == Reagan Lodge · VCU Communication Arts Guys I know we’re all upset about a bunch of women in Cologne getting sexually assaulted and 1400 […]

Losing Faith

From this comment. As a former renewables scientist, I must respond to this line: “Pollution tends to become an increasing problem because the least polluting commodity sources are used first. When mitigations such as substituting renewables for fossil fuels are used, they tend to be more expensive than the products they are replacing. The leads […]

They kill people!!

Guns kill people. Isn’t it obvious? President Obama shed tears on Tuesday as he called for new gun safety measures, and some critics perceived weakness or wimpishness. Really? On the contrary, we should all be in tears that 225,000 Americans have already died of gun violence in his seven years in office. The shame is […]

Cruz Hurtles Into CA Lead

Well, this is interesting.  Cruz has gone from consistently running 4-6% to suddenly taking the lead at 25% in the nation’s most populous state. California doesn’t vote until June, so the primary may be over by then, but either way a primary candidate taking CA and TX would be hard to beat. It’s possible Cruz is peaking […]

America’s Greatest Triumph

“They said this day would never come,” he said. “They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided — too disillusioned to ever come together around a common purpose.” He continued, “We are one nation. We are one people. And our time for change has come.” One day, he […]

An old idea

Now. Then.
