10941116_10153334452992908_6865609441047079646_n

You’re going to have to excuse me if I pass up a trip on the Bernie Sanders Is Our New Trvth Telling Prophet Bandwagon. Bernie Sanders is Leftie Ron Paul: a nutty uncle who sometimes blurts out a piece of common sense, such as this: …but most of the time sounds about one step away from [Read More...]

Let’s Choose Not To Be Manipulated

Marshall-Mcluhandis

In the modern media ecosystem, the stories come faster than the mind has time to process. We find ourselves crouching into offensive or defensive postures, falling back on tribal catchphrases, and reacting too fast, too soon, and always with too much outrage. I don’t have to go further than the last couple days to show [Read More...]

71C8CTJQ92L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

It’s come to this.

Obama and the Robot

"I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords."

Japan’s obsession with robots is going to doom us all. This is how Skynet begins, with a friendly game of robot soccer.

The Congressional Stenographer and the Holy Spirit UPDATED

When I first heard that a congressional stenographer had grabbed a microphone and started ranting about Masonic conspiracies on the floor of the House, I assumed she’d had some sort of mental break.

“Check Your Privilege”: The Tournament!

priv

“Check Your Privilege” is the modern rebranding of political correctness, which in turn was an aggressive rebranding of “consciousness raising,” and THAT was just plain old cultural Marxism. It’s the idea that society is inherently homogeneous, and therefore automatically represses those who are–to use the modern word–”others.” Certain people, so the theory goes, accrue privilege [Read More...]
