Biden shouldn't be ridiculed. He should be pitied
Post Date: 2023-09-26 02:43:49 by Charles_Byrd
Ahead of the latest UN General Assembly meeting in New York City, where US President Joe Biden gave a speech, the X (formerly Twitter) account of Republicans against Trump invited users to remember the time the world literally laughed at Donald Trump five years ago. Representatives from around the world erupted in laughter as the president gloated about his administration, which he said had accomplished more than any other in history – which he didn’t intend as a punchline. “When we see a behavior or listen to arguments or notions that seem so far-fetched, unreasonable, or insane, there is [an] almost natural reaction of laughing,” one diplomat told BuzzFeed News at the ...

Review: White House Plumbers Delivers an Amusing Take on Watergate
Post Date: 2023-09-23 01:26:58 by Charles_Byrd
HBO's White House Plumbers is a fictionalized account of the events before, during, and after the notorious break-in and wiretapping of the Democratic National Committee's headquarters at the Watergate complex during President Richard Nixon's reelection bid in 1972. The show adheres to the historical record in its way, but the twist is how it frames the entire affair as a madcap farce more like The Naked Gun than All the President's Men. Nixon aides E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux), known as "plumbers" since they were tasked with shutting off leaks (of information), each have extensive spycraft résumés yet caper ...

Keep Your Personal Life Personal
Post Date: 2023-09-23 00:59:55 by Charles_Byrd
We all know that too much social media is deeply unhealthy. Yet its addictive entertainment keeps so many of us ensnared in daily use—so much so that it has brought about the death of personal life. In our modern culture, it is common and even encouraged to put personal experiences, updates, opinions, and even emotional breakdowns onto public platforms for anyone to see. But is this really how we should be treating our personal lives? What do we lose when we share so much of ourselves online? And what do we gain when we don’t? Click for Full Text!

"Social Justice" Is Neither Social nor Just
Post Date: 2023-09-23 00:53:30 by Charles_Byrd
Thomas Sowell has given us a penetrating criticism of the approach to justice taken by many political philosophers, especially John Rawls and his innumerable followers. He says that they construct an image of the way society ought to be but fail to ask whether their plans are feasible. His criticism is well-taken, although he does not offer an adequate account of the rights that people have. Click for Full Text!

Worst-dressed Sen. John Fetterman strikes blow for elite slobs only
Post Date: 2023-09-19 00:09:27 by Charles_Byrd
Chalk up another victory for the Senate’s #1 blue-collar cosplayer, Pennsylvania’s John Fetterman. Looks like the shambling lawmaker — after months of taking flak for his high-school-stoner, hoodie-and-gym-shorts outfits — has gotten Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to ax the Senate’s dress code, which demanded men wear jacket and tie on the floor and women wear business attire as well.

Needed: More People to Keep Asking Why
Post Date: 2023-09-16 00:46:49 by Charles_Byrd
With grandchildren who are now 2, 4 and 6 years old, I have had occasion to weather many a “why” question (but, blessedly, less frequently than my kids have). And judging from the substantial online discussion of kids’ “why” stage, I am far from alone. But in perusing some of that discussion, one comment by psychiatrist Napatia Gettings shifted my thoughts away from how to survive the why stage. She said, “They’re trying to make sense of the world, and that’s a good sign.” It made me remember a phrase I have read, with some variation, many times in Thomas Sowell’s writing, from at least as far back as his 1980 Knowledge and Decisions though ...

The Justice Department lawsuit against Elon Musk’s SpaceX is nakedly absurd
Post Date: 2023-09-11 23:44:44 by Charles_Byrd
The Justice Department recently filed a lawsuit against SpaceX , the California-based spacecraft manufacturer and satellite communications company founded by Elon Musk . In its lawsuit , the DOJ accused SpaceX of only hiring U.S. citizens and green-card holders, thereby discriminating against asylees and refugees in hiring, an alleged violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

15 Signs That Social Insanity Is Eating Away at America Like a Cancer Is Visible All Around Us
Post Date: 2023-09-11 06:36:22 by Charles_Byrd
The fabric of our society is coming apart at the seams, and you can see it with your own eyes. If you live in a major city, all you have to do is walk around, and you’ll find many signs that our core urban centers are decaying, and just about every sort of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us. Our so-called leaders continue to make stupid decisions, and now we are all going to reap the consequences. Predators are roaming our streets. American families are collapsing. Traditional moral values have been completely discarded. Young people are running wild in the streets, lawlessness is growing, and our system of government is melting down in plain sight. Click ...

The Government Should Stop Trying to Micromanage Search Engines
Post Date: 2023-09-11 06:31:32 by Charles_Byrd
In less than a week, Google will go to trial and defend itself against antitrust claims from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and a number of state attorneys. Google had asked Judge Amit Mehta of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to grant summary judgment in the case — essentially asking the judge to make a decision on the case before it ever goes to trial. In response, Judge Mehta did throw out a handful of the government's most dubious claims, but he also said that "there remain genuine disputes of material fact [on some of the claims against Google] that warrant a trial.” Click for Full Text!

Another city overrun with crime, and the obvious solution is off the table
Post Date: 2023-09-10 00:51:39 by Charles_Byrd
Over the past few months, we've seen several stories surrounding how some cities have fallen apart due to a rise in criminal activity and a shortage of police officers to handle it. This includes such prosperous cities as Denver, Portland, Chicago, and New York. Sadly, it's time to add another to the list: Boston.

The Collapse of American Identity- All Warnings Have Come True! (We Need A Change)
Post Date: 2023-09-09 01:20:02 by Charles_Byrd
Even some of our brightest scientific minds are projecting that there is absolutely no positive future for our civilization if we stay on our current course. Perhaps one of the reasons why our society has become so obsessed with short-term results is because most of us can’t bear to think about the long-term consequences of our actions. I have a website that focuses on “economic collapse”, but it isn’t just the economy that is headed for catastrophe. Virtually every aspect of our society is coming apart at the seams all around us, and the era that we are moving into will be more nightmarish than most people would dare to imagine. But our political leaders continue to ...

Arson Across the Globe! A for Profit Industry
Post Date: 2023-09-05 22:55:55 by Charles_Byrd
Young people account for 55% of all arsons. They are paid. While organized arson has been a plague for centuries, Aristocrats hired the itinerant to spread terror. According to a journal, Crime History & Societies; “During the English ‘Captain Swing’ protests of the 1830s it was rumoured that Irish itinerant working men were paid by wealthy Jews to commit arson. The adherents of ‘Captain Swing’ were at pains to emphasize that they did not cooperate with the fireraiser.” 80 Churches were burnt to the ground in Canada by arsonists who accused the church of killing children and burying them. The accusation has been proven false. Not one body has been ...

The Panacea
Post Date: 2023-09-05 22:54:13 by Charles_Byrd
A question I ask people periodically is, if they could change one thing to remedy the decline of society, what would it be? It can’t be something like going back in time to alter things or summoning extraterrestrials like Klaatu and Gort to police society. It hast to be something that is theoretically possible no matter how unlikely or unworkable. Some of the responses are things like term limits for politicians, elimination of the income tax, ending or enhancing the drug war, voter IDs, policing the borders, mandatory prison sentences, ending lifetime appointment of judges, legalizing drugs that are presently illegal, increasing the number of police, and so on.

A Call for Justice

We were fooled. We’ve been had. We took the vaccines and the vaccines were bad. Millions have died and millions are sick because of the covid needle arm-prick. Let’s hang the bastards who did this to us. Let’s bring them to justice, one and all. The bureaucrats, the vaccine-pushers and the presstitutes must take a fall. Click for Full Text!

San Francisco Decays Taking Retail With It
Post Date: 2023-09-05 22:01:15 by Charles_Byrd
It should come as no surprise that an enterprising San Franciscan came up with the idea to host a "doom loop" tour of the moldering city on a hill. The plot twist is that Alex Ludlum, who put together the tour, canceled and refunded tickets for his "Downtown Doom Loop Walking Tour" before its intended Aug. 26 debut. That would be the weekend Nordstrom shuttered its flagship store in downtown San Francisco. Click for Full Text!

Yes, Washington is a gerontocracy – and it's our fault
Post Date: 2023-09-01 01:14:56 by Charles_Byrd
For the second time in recent months, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell froze in the middle of a press conference, staring off in silence before being saved by an aide. The episode was widely covered by the establishment media – and fairly so, considering his position and power. It would be nice, and ethical, if the same level of scrutiny was applied to our cognitively compromised president, who regularly wanders off to shake hands with invisible leprechauns, struggles to navigate stairs and forgets the name of his Cabinet members.

Should We Abolish Zoning?
Post Date: 2023-08-30 22:39:05 by Charles_Byrd
Most of America’s land area is zoned, a government regulation that tells landowners what they’re allowed to build in different places, and how much of it they can build. Some experts are now recommending getting rid of zoning entirely. Are they right? I consider the proposal in a new paper. The case for abolishing zoning ends up a lot stronger than I expected.

In the Land of the Free, Americans are Still Fighting for the Freedom to Pump Gas
Post Date: 2023-08-28 20:43:46 by Charles_Byrd
For the first time since the Truman administration, Oregon drivers will be permitted to grab a fuel hose and fill their gas tanks all by themselves. Governor Tina Kotek on Friday signed legislation, which went into effect immediately, that lifts the state’s 72-year ban on self-serve filling stations, leaving New Jersey as the last state in the US with a prohibition on self-serving gasoline stations.

Historical Living . . . in the City?
Post Date: 2023-08-23 19:05:23 by Charles_Byrd
When someone says, “traditional lifestyle,” we think of historical farms, countryside views, gardens, animals, sunrises, and sunsets. We rarely, if ever, think of apartments, city streets, and rental townhomes with historical living. Perhaps you’re a college student in a campus dorm room. Maybe your job keeps you in an urban studio apartment. Perhaps skyrocketing housing costs prevent you from owning the country cottage of your dreams. How can we aspire to live historically if we are constantly surrounded by modern environments? Click for Full Text!

When All Crimes Are Those Against the State
Post Date: 2023-08-19 02:01:40 by Charles_Byrd
The above principle is a simple one, yet it’s the basis for all criminal law. In turn, criminal law is the basis for Common Law, the legal system for English-speaking peoples and much of the rest of the world. The idea is a simple one: If party A aggresses against party B, party B is entitled under the law to restitution or compensation to be paid by party A to party B. Click for Full Text!

The Best Political Writer You Never Heard Of
Post Date: 2023-08-19 01:46:56 by Charles_Byrd
One day, Mike Royko was all done. Mike Royko was on the second page of The Chicago Tribune. Boy did he write some good politics. He cut down the Daleys in his writing like nobody’s business. He played softball — 16 inch, like a true Chicagoan. 16 inch is the kind of softball you can play with no mitt on one hand and a can of Old Style beer in the other hand. The ball is soft. The home runs are fun. The thing just lobs off the bat through the air. Click for Full Text!

The Censors’ Henchmen
Post Date: 2023-08-13 03:09:43 by Charles_Byrd
The ongoing release of the Facebook Files reveals the target of the White House’s collusion with Big Tech: you. Censorship is not a targeted attack on speakers; the objective is to deny you, the citizenry, your right to access information. Journalists including Michael Shellenberger have exposed what they dub the “Censorship Industrial Complex,” a tangled web of the world’s most powerful government agencies, NGOs, and private corporations that work together to stifle unapproved narratives.
