Conservatives Will Never Win the Culture War

Written by on 1 June 2017

Conservatives will never win the culture war. I’m sorry to break this to you. Our ostensible political party sometimes wins elections, but these victories are both temporary and ephemeral, at best. What does winning the culture war even mean? Have you considered what winning would look like? What are the terms of victory? The progressive, […]

Stephen Colbert, Special Snowflakes, and Media Panic Explained

Written by on 3 May 2017

Stephen Colbert’s disgusting, homophobic rant about President Trump; special snowflake safe spaces on college campuses; and news media pretenses about press rights being eviscerated under our new fascist regime all have the same root cause, and it’s not ideology. That progressives engage in this behavior is incidental to a deeper problem, one that we must […]

Free Speech in the Age of Social Media

Written by on 2 May 2017

Please keep in mind that whenever I say “you” in this piece, I don’t mean you. I mean somebody else who isn’t you. This also goes for “we” and “our.” When I say we, I mean other people including me, but not you. Unless it’s about something good, in which case you’re included in the […]

All of Your Favorite Superheroes Suck

Written by on 23 March 2017

In an earlier piece I pointed out how moribund the Star Wars/Star Trek franchises had become, and despite the endless movies, TV shows, and novels produced in these worlds, they provided nothing new, exciting, or interesting for the consumer. Wonder Woman: June 2017 Release When it comes to past-their-prime franchises, I left out the oldest […]

The Not-So-Great Divorce

Written by on 9 March 2017

If you’ve ever been in a fight with your spouse you know that there are certain lines you just don’t cross. Certain things you must not say, because if you say them, even in the heat of anger, you can’t take them back. Once you’ve calmed down and apologized for the fight you’ll have to […]

Written by on 24 February 2017

It’s become a cliché already, a cheap way of winning an internet argument (as if that’s possible) but words really do mean things.
