Dadsplaining for @cynthiablee: Women, Victimhood and the #Google Memo

  Dear Professor Lee: Your article (“I’m a woman in computer science. Let me ladysplain the Google memo to you”) is very interesting and well-argued, and far be it from me to question your professional qualifications or your experiential authority. For a woman to say, “This is what it’s like for me as a woman […]

Twitter Is Losing Nearly $40 Million a Month, and Still Banning Conservatives

  Here’s a number: $116.5 million. That’s how much money Twitter lost during the second quarter this year, which is 9% more than what Twitter lost in the same quarter last year.

Further Thoughts on ‘The Big Short’

My reference to The Big Short and the housing bubble in my post about Tuesday’s special election prompted an email from a reader: I was reading your discussion of the Big Short and you are exactly right about the people who got mortgages they could not pay being just as “guilty”, however you define it, […]

Social Justice vs. Heterosexuality (and the Problem With ‘Male Feminists’)

While the social media company appears to be treading water after […]

Since @Jack Put SJWs in Charge, @Twitter Has Lost $457 Million

  A year ago, my @rsmccain account was banned from Twitter because I had been criticizing feminists. I’d been on Twitter since 2009 and my account had tens of thousands of followers, but the claim that I was “participating in targeted abuse” was offered to justify my banishment, even though Twitter never said what the […]

Great Again: Dow Hits Record High

Thank you, Mister President: Dow 20,000 is finally here. After weeks of close calls, the Dow made history on Wednesday by blowing past that key level for the first time ever. The historic milestone leaves the Dow up a stunning 1,667 points since President Donald Trump’s victory in November. The achievement is evidence of how […]

Amid Dow Boom, Liberal Media Gloom

In the weeks leading up to the Nov. 8 election, Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) warned of economic disaster if Donald Trump won. “Economists: A Trump win would tank the markets,” was the Oct. 21 headline at Politico, and on Nov. 6 — two days before the election, when some polls showed […]
