Which Came First? by baldilocks Basically, I've got nothing. I'm still feeling a little wistful and reflective after my road trip, so I'm simply going to share an excerpt from article I found interesting. (You may notice that we do that around here sometimes. The boss is lenient.) I'm looking for something to write about … Continue reading The Leftism or The Lunacy?
By John Ruberry "As I watch a great number of my fellow Americans and virtually all of the mainstream media descend further and further into irrational and immoral hysteria -- regularly calling the president of the United States and all of his supporters Nazis, white supremacists and the like; harassing Republicans where they eat, shop … Continue reading To my liberal friends: Yes, conservatives are decent people
By John Ruberry There are cries on both sides of the political aisle for a return to civility. When did it go away? It happened fifty years ago in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention. The left killed civility. The documentary Best of Enemies, available on Netflix, centers on ten debates broadcast on ABC during … Continue reading 1968: When the left killed civility
I am an avid golfer and very much a fan of the PGA Tour. Like everyone else, I was impressed by Tiger Woods and rooted for him in his early years on the tour. I did think it was a bit unfair when he had the gallery move a boulder for him at the 1999 … Continue reading Tiger Woods as a Symbol of the Left
by baldilocks I plan on coming back to California after my upcoming Odyssey, but it's easy to understand why this is happening. Richer Americans are moving to the coasts while poorer families are relocating to the Rust Belt as part of a national gentrification trend that is dividing the haves and have-nots geographically, according to … Continue reading Movement
By John Ruberry Early next year the first round of the Chicago mayoral election will be held, If no candidate achieves a majority, then the top two face each other in a runoff. The two-term incumbent, Rahm Emanuel, President Obama's first chief of staff, is running, as are several other candidates, each with baggage, including … Continue reading Barack Obama, Chicago mayor?
by baldilocks Anatomy of mass psychosis. For the past two years, a particular power group has sought to explain away its loss of power – or rather, its loss of the Presidency, as it still holds a predominance of institutional power – by creation of a myth. Mainstream media is known for its herd behavior, … Continue reading Diagnosis: TDS
Every time there is a Supreme Court vacancy under a Republican president, the Left panics, at least since 1973, when Roe v. Wade was erroneously decided, inventing a supposed right to abortion that is nowhere in the Constitution. With the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the pattern continues. We all know that this panic stems from … Continue reading What the Left Actually Means by “Stare Decisis”
by baldilocks I just spent more minutes than I should have arguing with a Twitter-bot about Jesus the Christ, so I'm a little late today. (Sorry, Peter.) As an excuse In my defense, I do like to keep my arguing skills up and hadn't done it in while. It's like riding a bicycle! Anyway, like … Continue reading Nomenklatura on the Rise
by baldilocks #MeToo What is the relationship between complete disarmament of the entire American populace, open borders, and opposition to the so-call Muslim ban? Mexico is a nightmare of a nation-state, totally controlled by the demonic drug and human-trafficking cartels. The operational activities of these cartels rivals those of ISIS. Mexico’s murder rate is number … Continue reading Don’t Forget: They Want You Dead
by baldilocks Don't call it a comeback The latest in political delineation news is that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was refused service at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. Sanders merely reported it and said that she and her family complied and left. And this is fair. As Peter pointed out, restaurants … Continue reading Segregation Now!
by baldilocks I’m old enough to remember when I was called delusional by an alleged conservative for pointing this out. That happened in 2008. But I’m certain that Don Surber was pointing it out back then also. Here he is in a well-earned I-told-you-so: Barack Obama is a communist. Mild compared to Castro or Mao, … Continue reading We Averted Our Eyes
Illinois cannot cope with the present, let alone with the future, so it's fighting a symbolic battle from the past. Here's a little history lesson: In 1972 Congress submitted the Equal Rights Amendment to the state legislatures, which read: Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the … Continue reading Failed state Illinois creating distraction from pension crisis by trying to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment
By John Ruberry A week ago the Chicago Sun-Times began a high-profile begging campaign with a white splash--a blank sheet of paper--as its front page to draw attention to an op-ed, “Imagine Chicago without the Sun-Times: An urgent appeal.” Or, the editorial could be titled, give us money or the Sun-Times will shut down. "Until … Continue reading Don’t be fooled, the Chicago Sun-Times wants subscriptions to peddle its side of the story, not yours
by baldilocks Today I was interviewed by Chris Levels, who host a BlogTalkRadio show four days a week called Politics and Prophecy. It was the second time that Chris invited me to his show, the second time that one of us had equipment failure, and the second time that I was one longer that scheduled. … Continue reading Donors Keep the Southern Poverty Law Center Out of Poverty
