Inflating It All Away

Inflation was first felt in spring 2020 when the meat shortage scare started. Beef prices jumped with the rationale being covid hit processing plants and orders to slaughter hogs. Now consumers and businesses see inflation in all goods and inputs they use. Covid is a large excuse to inflate the massive debts the system has…

Tiger Cub Cope

People are vaxxed and theaters are back. Disney offers their Marvel addicts a fresh dish with the new Shang Chi film. Oh you didn’t know the famous Marvel super hero Shang Chi? That is fine as no one else does either except the comic book store guy from the ’90s. This movie isn’t for you….

Secular Society, Secular Death

Observing American behavior since the start of covid, we are a nation of fearful children. Goalposts moved on addressing the illness from flattening the curve to zero deaths. Socially, the revelations were more dramatic. Many Americans became afraid of an aggressive, two week illness that over 99% of the infected survive. People revealed the yeast…

No Saigon ‘75 For Us

American involvement in another war theater ends. No victory. It just ends. American does not win wars, nor do we outright lose them with definitive peace treaties with pomp and circumstance. We do lose long term and in the slow bleed of the process. America is pulling out of Afghanistan, but there will be no…

Four Americas, One State

The lines demarcating American tribes are hardening. In some ways they do not seem to be so firm. The Atlantic allowed George Packer to write on this phenomenon. It is a nice enlightened liberal view of the political arena for 2021. It is also a Boomer hand-waving of the problems the current configuration of America…

A Shift On The Right

The post-Trump right is disorganized right now but a Trumpian policy set seems to be forming. The economic nationalism and populism he pitched seems here to stay.

Shock Doctrine Comes Home

Whether on the streets or on social media, no one can miss the fried mental status of Americans. Some of us have carried on with normal lives during covid lockdowns or the scare, but we see millions living lives of fear and hysteria. It does seem overblown. Using a framework from a pre-financial crisis pop…

Under The Information Ocean

Conspiracy theories flood the discourse. They were once the topic for crazy newsletters with rabid followers. Now any subculture or political faction engages in what would formerly be called conspiracy theory research. In 2018, Under the Silver Lake debuted with little media push. It grossed barely any money. It did capture the world Americans find…

Who Is Buying Homes?

The housing market is hot. Homes last a day on the market. Buyers must bid above listing. If you bid 20% over listing, you likely will lose out. Year over year gains are insane in some markets. There’s also a huge unemployment problem. Who is buying all of these homes? It’s not just the little…

The Childless Western Leader Trend

A curious phenomenon has been noticed by those of us on the right. It is the childless Western leader trend. Biden is a figurehead, but Kamala, who takes the calls with foreign leaders, fits the barren mold. It is actually amazing to see it listed out but should come as no surprise. This is the…
