Monsters And A Mystery

– compiled by Wombat-socho I confess to having failed the Loyal Readers by not mentioning that I’ve finally gotten around to reading the first two Monster Hunter novels by International Lord of Hate Larry Correia, which were conveniently packaged in The Monster Hunters along with the first one I’d read, Monster Hunter Alpha, which is […]

The Kook Caucus and the Pervert Lobby

The earlier post about @Belle_Knox (Miriam Weeks) elicited an e-mail response from my old college buddy Bert the Samoan Lawyer, who suggests that Ms. Weeks is in need of prayer. Be that as it may, however, Ms. Weeks has quite emphatically rejected any suggestion that she is a “rescue project” in need of assistance. Furthermore, […]

Today’s Ray Of Hope: Harvard Gets A Clue

– Wombat-socho “Despair is a sin.” – J.E.Pournelle This should actually have gone up yesterday, but I spent most of the day waiting for my truck to be worked on and am not much interested in trying to make posts from my cellphone, bolshy great phablet that it is.

Stephanie Verge’s feature interview with Page is rather tedious: With a quiver […]

White Guilt Passes Its Expiration Date

Some things are predictable to observant students of human nature. There is a Newtonian principle of equal and opposite reactions in social, political and cultural trends. After the radical anti-war protests and bohemian lifestyle experimentation of the 1960s — LSD, campus sit-in demonstrations, psychedelic rock, hippie communes and meditation gurus — a discernible backlash took […]

Self-Awareness, @AmandaMarcotte? Irony? Some Logical Coherence, Perhaps?

Amanda Marcotte is one of the most wicked people in America today. Her bloodthirsty enthusiasm for abortion is such that she does not hesitate to imagine aborting her own hypothetical offspring: “I don’t want a baby. . . . Nothing will make me want a baby. . . . This is why, if my birth […]

Silly Ex-SECDEF Thinks He Has The Right To A Coherent Tax System

by Smitty Mr. Rumsfeld, sir: The dry sarcasm of your recent open letter to the IRS, while exquisite, reveals naïveté about what has happened to our country the last century. This is somewhat ironic, given you spent a good chunk of the last ~50 years shaping those events. We no longer begin with the individual […]
