How to Lose

by baldilocks If I didn’t know better, I’d say that a goodly portion of the 2020 Democratic Party candidates for president are working for Donald Trump. At the Democratic-primary debate in Houston [on Thursday], Beto O’Rourke formally killed off one of the gun-control movement’s favorite taunts: The famous “Nobody is coming for your guns, wingnut.” Asked … Continue reading How to Lose

Biased media reporting has gone from annoying to dangerous

It's like some people just want to watch the world burn. And by watch, I mean set it on fire themselves and then sit back and smugly gaze at their destruction. The latest sad example of this is the controversy over Hurricane Dorian's track. Dorian was a particularly nasty storm. It was big, had strong … Continue reading Biased media reporting has gone from annoying to dangerous

Sometimes DaTechGuy’s Laws of Media Outrage are Violated

In Science a "Law" is something that is always true, outside of science in criminal law for example, or moral law, people violate it all the time. That's why we have confession.

My n9/11 Silence, Election? What Election? Pizza? Please, Antonio Brown Suit, Playing it out Under the Fedora.

You'll note that I didn't do anything to commemorate 9/11 this year at all, not even the great victory on Lake Champlain in 1814 that I've occasionally mentioned. I think constantly morning the dead in big ceremonies is a bad idea while we are still fighting any of these guys, all it does it give … Continue reading My n9/11 Silence, Election? What Election?

Abortion is anti-life, anti-liberty, and anti pursuit of happiness

Abortion violates every component of the most often quoted sentence from the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” Abortion is anti-life because abortion … Continue reading Abortion is anti-life, anti-liberty, and anti pursuit of happiness

Israel’s Jews Mugged by Reality

The characteristic of Pains and Pleasures is that they are unmistakably real, and therefore, as far as they go, give the man who feels them a touchstone of reality. Thus if you had been trying to damn your man by the Romantic method…you would try to protect him at all costs from any real pain; … Continue reading Israel’s Jews Mugged by Reality

#rephrased Joel Gilbert Will Tell the world what we Bloggers already know about Travon Martin

Via Instapundit I read with some interest this story of an impending documentary that will infuriate the left: Gilbert did some serious shoe leather reporting as well. He visited all the relevant Miami-area high schools, the neighborhoods where Martin and his friends hung out, the streets of Miami’s Little Haiti, and the town community where … Continue reading #rephrased Joel Gilbert Will Tell the world what we Bloggers already know about Travon Martin

There Will Be Math

by baldilocks Dennis Prager: Our age loves scientific equations. Here's one you weren't taught at college but which affects you as much as the law of gravity: GI - W = E Good Intentions (GI) minus Wisdom (W) leads to Evil (E) Prager uses an example that's obvious -- at least to the sane.

Trump’s immigration plan is working

In their continuing policy of ignoring good news about the Trump administration, the mainstream media failed to note the significant decrease in the number of illegals crossing the Mexican border.

Buttigieg on Scripture, The Chappelle add on, Rabbits Farmers Chanel Captain’s Courageous, Chick-Fil-A wins again, Maybe they’re all lunch? Under the Fedora

I have to disagree with this argument at PJ media on Pete Buttigieg on scripture. I think he understands scripture just as I think Andrew Sullivan understands scripture and Fr. James Martin does and the idea is the same. He wants to remake scripture in general and God in particular in his own image in … Continue reading Buttigieg on Scripture, The Chappelle add on, Rabbits Farmers Chanel Captain’s Courageous, Chick-Fil-A wins again, Maybe they’re all lunch?

Sorry Reason I’ll Take Reagan, Cruz, Palin, Trump and Sherman over You

One of the things I've been talking about for years is the Need to fight back against the left and how those who have advanced conservatism the best have done so. I invoked it concerning Ronald Reagan: The film was a stroll down memory lane as I watched again saw a young Joe Biden, a young … Continue reading Sorry Reason I’ll Take Reagan, Cruz, Palin, Trump and Sherman over You

Heathens aplenty right here by baldilocks I'm having one of those moments again. So I'll do what I always do: point you to something interesting.
