Kenya Trip: Post Feelies

by baldilocks Ever since I’ve returned to the USA from Kenya, I’ve had people ask me how I feel. The answer is “better,” but I’ve struggled to find the words to describe what “better” means in this context. And, as you’ve probably guessed by now, struggling to find the words to describe something is unusual … Continue reading Kenya Trip: Post Feelies

An Obvious Point that “Oppressed” college students are missing

Three years ago Gallup talked about median income both household and per-capita worldwide: The median annual household income worldwide is $9,733, and the median per-capita household income is $2,920, according to new Gallup metrics.

The Andrew Klavan Seasonal Survival Kit™, with bonus

I've never met Andrew Klavan, and probably never will. I have met Robert Bidinotto, though.

Oftentimes it is a choice … Continue reading The Andrew Klavan Seasonal Survival Kit™, with bonus

The #unexpectedly Chronicles Boehner picks Trump (& Hillary, Obama & Bernie) over Cruz

Donald Trump as Hal Chase

Four years ago I told you a bit about a fellow by the name of Hal Chase, let me refresh your memory a bit.

“See you in court” UPDATED

Ah, Donald Trump. The man who has spent millions of dollars in court, suing for eminent domain here in the U.S.A. (and lost) and in Scotland, in pursuit of projects that either fail or are never finished (see the Scotland link). The same man who sued the guy who correctly appraised the odds on the Trump … Continue reading “See you in court” UPDATED

Trump Wins Five States the GOP won’t in November

As predicted Donald Trump won with big margins in Delaware, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

America is not what it was but You Should See the Other Guys

Lately I've been feeling rather depressed about America. Despite a few pools of light the more I look at where we are headed, the more I see how quickly society has caved the more I realize that America is in a serious decline that will only end when we have a demographic and social shift back … Continue reading America is not what it was but You Should See the Other Guys
