The armed gang led by Ammon Bundy was captured last night. They refused to surrender, and the stop erupted in gunfire, with reports not saying who shot first. One gang member was killed, the rest were arrested. No law enforcement agents were killed. If an armed, inner-city gang were stopped on the road, with one member killed and the rest arrested, there would be no | Read More »
Donald Trump Is a Coward and a Weakling
Let’s just get this out here: Donald Trump is what would happen if a skunk and a vulture had a kid out of wedlock, recoiled in horror at the birth, tried their level best to raise the little abomination, and then abandoned him on the edge of a swamp in the hopes that a friendly, blind alligator would eat him. He has short, stubby hands, | Read More »

Rick Santorum Vindicated
“I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.” –Bob Hope Shortly after the odious Lawrence v. Texas decision in which the US Supreme Court, in a grim foreshadowing of the short shrift it has given the desecration of the concept of marriage, decided to toss a couple of millenia of Western Civilization | Read More »
These first early voting numbers for LA-SEN are maybe *too* good for us.
Courtesy of the indispensable AOSHQDD comes the first early voting numbers for Louisiana’s Senate runoff numbers, and if the trends hold they’re gruesome for . The summary: about 136,000 people did early/absentee voting as of 11/25/2014. 72% of those voters were white, 25% black, the rest ‘other.’ If the numbers found here are accurate, Landrieu got 94% of the black vote in the primary… and 18% of | Read More »
This Thanksgiving, Let’s Help Those Affected by the #Ferguson Riots
The ongoing events in Ferguson have altered the Thanksgiving and Christmas plans for quite a few of the city’s residents for the worse. The business owners who have seen their stores and restaurants looted or destroyed are probably the most visible of those who have been negatively affected by the unrest, but someone’s going to have to clean up the mess left in the streets and | Read More »
Schumer: Stimulus “Was a Mistake,” ObamaCare Addressed “Wrong Problem”; But Still Doesn’t Get It
Yesterday, liberal Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer lambasted Democrats for the political failure of both ObamaCare and the stimulus.
While he certainly has not changed his core belief that government can solve all the people’s ills (and said as much), he slammed his party for its political failures.

White People, Ferguson, and Empathy
This is not a post about whether or not Darren Wilson should have been indicted. This is not a post defending the rioting and looting that has come after. This is a post about examining our reactions to phenomena that we can’t properly understand. Obviously, an ordered society cannot long survive when looting and destruction of property – especially the private property of innocent bystanders | Read More »
Brave Sir Robin And The Riots In Ferguson, MO
The heavily-burdened Grand Jury has handed down a decision stating that they will not indict Officer Darren Wilson for any criminal wrongdoing in the shooting death of Michael Brown. That has regrettably caused a lot of very frustrated, angry and frightened people to take to the streets and riot. This has given cover to a number of professional radicals who look for any grievance, legitimate | Read More »
Sola Civitas: The Left Favors the State Over the People in Ferguson
Michael Brown was a thief. He had used drugs, robbed a store, punched a cop, then the cop fatally shot him. Those are the facts. To the left, that Officer Wilson was not found guilty of killing Michael Brown was an outrage. It was an outrage too when George Zimmerman was found not guilty of killing Trayvon Martin. Essentially, the left is opposed to the | Read More »
Ezra Klein’s House of White Privilege Explains the News
I finally understand white privilege. It is a detachment that lets certain people be detached from the real world while pretending to cover it accurately and emote with it. I get it. It is the only thing that can explain this post by Ezra Klein. Klein just cannot fathom that an eighteen year old who’d just robbed a story would tell a cop to f*ck | Read More »
Chuck Schumer quietly starts distancing Democrats from Obama for 2016.
I’m just going to summarize it: Senator Chuck Schumer today ever-so-casually indicated that working first on Obamacare was a mistake; that, in fact, Congress should have instead worked on pretty much anything else besides Obamacare; and that himself opposed starting first on Obamacare, but all those Obama supporters in the Obama administration were so adamant that Obamacare be put in place right away. Also: how about | Read More »
