Agency + Five Friday Reads 8/9/19

Just do it. Get offline and get moving. That is a steady theme to everything we write here. How few people do you need to start? All lifters start with the first pump. In one small town in Ohio, it took just four people. The Kilbourne Project was started with a few friends moving to…

Marianne Boomers + Five Friday Reads 8/2/19

Marianne Williamson. She would be Marianne Vishnevetsky but her family chose to use a pseudo, too. She talks in the touchy feely, New Age garbage cadence with a healthy dose of platitudes from the ’70s. She is unfairly compared to Trump, who had policies, and she is unfairly compared to cult leaders. She is a…

10 Friday Reads 7/25/19

I have been on vacation. Forgive me for no post last Friday and not much here. To make it up, I will link ten reads. Harvard Law Prof’s Life Becomes A Dark Comedy – A Harvard law professor gets conned by some lesbian and a trans person. I cannot do this justice. Read this and…

The Ballerina Wife + Five Friday Reads 7/12/19

Today I am going to resurrect a post. It was the most read post on my old blog until a group of individuals asked me to take it down because the post was social technology they did not want out. That was some autism on their part as the post was years old but always…

America At The Fourth + Five Friday Reads 7/5/19

Another July 4th has come and gone. Each year it feels phonier does it not? Somewhere in the timeline the social cohesion of a patriotic fourth died. It might have been the ’90s when patriotism was kitschy enough to be mocked by the proper thinking crowd. Not just the elite left leaning types but your…

Cancel Student Debt + Five Friday Links 6/28/19

This week was the big talk about why we need to wipe out student debt and do it now. Not just some but all of it. We also need to make college free. Free college is a dumb idea as it just becomes a bigger pipeline to funding university bloat. The debt cancelling though offers…

Things Disappear + Five Friday Reads 6/21/19

An old reader asked me if I had the copy of my article on Trump being a Manchurian candidate for the Pentagon. I said not now but that Social Matter had it. He informed me that it was not coming up. I checked and nope, looks like Social Matter is either private or completely gone….

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…
