Is PRIDE Over Yet + Five Friday Reads 6/14/19

It was just letting them come out of the shadows. That was what it was pitched. They had Hollywood portraying their strife as one of just tolerance. Was it not just a handful of years ago Facebook was sharing heartfelt, canned speeches by young men raised by a lesbian couple in the ’90s as proof…

She Became A Meme + Five Friday Reads 6/7/19

A friend was close to proposing to his girlfriend. She was 28, he 31. He was ready. She turned 29 and lost her mind. They broke up. She got into drugs. She eventually hit rock bottom and then her parents paid for a rehab center disguised as vacation spot in Bali. My friend started seeing…

David Frenchism + Five Friday Reads 5/31/19

First, there was the essay against David French. Then there was the answer that was a defense of David French. Then French defended himself. Ahmari takes the knife to French. Dougherty defends him, but it sounds more like a defense to keep French in the big tent. They both have points. I like Dougherty, but…

Memorial Day + Five Friday Reads 5/24/19

Memorial Day is upon us. Veteran’s Day is for veterans and Memorial Day is for those who have given their life for our nation. Please make this distinction. The airheads of Instagram will take selfies and say how much they support our troops, but they get a day in November. This holiday is for remembering…

On Doxing + Five Friday Reads 5/17/19

This is a little late to the game but with a week in the rear view, it plays to one of my points. By now, if you read the fringe and have read the fringe for years, you know about the Buzzfeed article where Rosie Gray published a gossip confessional, parading around McHugh like a…

Overlooked Developments

Nick “SIEGE aficionado” Mason asked of me to compile a list of news updates people would have overlooked so I have decided to oblige him. Here goes: “For decades, the decennial census sent to each household hasn’t included a citizenship question (it’s instead asked on surveys), and for good reason. Latino residents – legal or…

Five Friday Reads 5/10/19

One recurring thing on social media is the ignorance of females that post their demands if heartbeat bills pass in their states. It is breathtaking in how unaware they are of the government enforced matriarchy that they enjoy. It might be better to phrase that as the government daddy stand in to clean up after…

Never Heard of Ottoman Comedy + Five Friday Reads 5/3/19

Comedy is dead. Comedians even admit this. Oh gosh it is dead and PC culture killed it. Oh gosh who ever did this? No one likes it but it is done! This is as deep as it goes because to poke around the source would be to point a finger at progressive ideology and the…

Millenials Priced Out + Five Friday Reads 4/26/19

A recent report was discussing how Millenials are skipping the home-ownership thing. Some are not buying. Some are renting pods to live in, and it is all part of that minimalist, cool kid vibe. See, Millenials are about experiences and the experience one can have. This is pure bullshit. Shelter is always needed. What has…

Notre Dame + Five Friday Reads 4/19/19

March 30th, 2001 The tour of Paris. We started with Notre Dame which blows my mind. I was shaking and had goosebumps from the sanctity of the place. The gargoyles do look intimidating and wonderful and the church has that waterfall backside with the support arches to the center. Magnificent. The arc was excellent with…
