July 21, 2013

An inquiry on an earlier post regarding my opinion brought me out of blogging hibernation and allowed me to become person number 1,256,369 to express an opinion on the verdict.

Obama, Just Like Nixon?

October 7, 2012

An oft told story tells us, that in the Nixon versus Kennedy debates those who watched on TV gave victory to Kennedy, while those who listened on radio gave victory to Nixon. I had a slightly similar experience of the recent Romney versus Obama debate.

Why Socialism Lost and Capitalism Will too

May 6, 2012

It has always been a source of angst to those on the Left that the workers of the world were not so eager to join them in the search for the worker’s paradise.

Some of this has to do with that fact that expecting utopia to work in the real world is something only smart and highly educated people could believe in.

Why I am Not (Quite) a White Nationalist

2012

January 1, 2012

There is nothing to this post other than to wish my readers (a small but select group) a great 2012. While in some ways January 1 is a rather arbitrary date (it is New Year’s day because it is designated as New Year’s day), it offers a convenient way to mark the passage of time.

Ghost of Christmas Presents

December 21, 2011

It is likely a bit late for most, but I do have a suggestion for removing one of the stresses of Christmastime: Declare a gift giving truce.
