Worst-dressed Sen. John Fetterman strikes blow for elite slobs only
Post Date: 2023-09-19 00:09:27 by Charles_Byrd
Chalk up another victory for the Senates #1 blue-collar cosplayer, Pennsylvanias John Fetterman. Looks like the shambling lawmaker after months of taking flak for his high-school-stoner, hoodie-and-gym-shorts outfits has gotten Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to ax the Senates dress code, which demanded men wear jacket and tie on the floor and women wear business attire as well.

Needed: More People to Keep Asking Why
Post Date: 2023-09-16 00:46:49 by Charles_Byrd
With grandchildren who are now 2, 4 and 6 years old, I have had occasion to weather many a why question (but, blessedly, less frequently than my kids have). And judging from the substantial online discussion of kids why stage, I am far from alone. But in perusing some of that discussion, one comment by psychiatrist Napatia Gettings shifted my thoughts away from how to survive the why stage. She said, Theyre trying to make sense of the world, and thats a good sign. It made me remember a phrase I have read, with some variation, many times in Thomas Sowells writing, from at least as far back as his 1980 Knowledge and Decisions though ...
The Justice Department lawsuit against Elon Musk’s SpaceX is nakedly absurd
Post Date: 2023-09-11 23:44:44 by Charles_Byrd
The Justice Department recently filed a lawsuit against SpaceX , the California-based spacecraft manufacturer and satellite communications company founded by Elon Musk . In its lawsuit , the DOJ accused SpaceX of only hiring U.S. citizens and green-card holders, thereby discriminating against asylees and refugees in hiring, an alleged violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

15 Signs That Social Insanity Is Eating Away at America Like a Cancer Is Visible All Around Us
Post Date: 2023-09-11 06:36:22 by Charles_Byrd
The fabric of our society is coming apart at the seams, and you can see it with your own eyes. If you live in a major city, all you have to do is walk around, and youll find many signs that our core urban centers are decaying, and just about every sort of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us. Our so-called leaders continue to make stupid decisions, and now we are all going to reap the consequences. Predators are roaming our streets. American families are collapsing. Traditional moral values have been completely discarded. Young people are running wild in the streets, lawlessness is growing, and our system of government is melting down in plain sight. Click ...
The Government Should Stop Trying to Micromanage Search Engines
Post Date: 2023-09-11 06:31:32 by Charles_Byrd
In less than a week, Google will go to trial and defend itself against antitrust claims from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and a number of state attorneys. Google had asked Judge Amit Mehta of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to grant summary judgment in the case essentially asking the judge to make a decision on the case before it ever goes to trial. In response, Judge Mehta did throw out a handful of the government's most dubious claims, but he also said that "there remain genuine disputes of material fact [on some of the claims against Google] that warrant a trial.

Another city overrun with crime, and the obvious solution is off the table
Post Date: 2023-09-10 00:51:39 by Charles_Byrd
Over the past few months, we've seen several stories surrounding how some cities have fallen apart due to a rise in criminal activity and a shortage of police officers to handle it. This includes such prosperous cities as Denver, Portland, Chicago, and New York. Sadly, it's time to add another to the list: Boston.

The Collapse of American Identity- All Warnings Have Come True! (We Need A Change)
Post Date: 2023-09-09 01:20:02 by Charles_Byrd
Even some of our brightest scientific minds are projecting that there is absolutely no positive future for our civilization if we stay on our current course. Perhaps one of the reasons why our society has become so obsessed with short-term results is because most of us cant bear to think about the long-term consequences of our actions. I have a website that focuses on economic collapse, but it isnt just the economy that is headed for catastrophe. Virtually every aspect of our society is coming apart at the seams all around us, and the era that we are moving into will be more nightmarish than most people would dare to imagine. But our political leaders continue to ...
Arson Across the Globe! A for Profit Industry
Post Date: 2023-09-05 22:55:55 by Charles_Byrd
Young people account for 55% of all arsons. They are paid. While organized arson has been a plague for centuries, Aristocrats hired the itinerant to spread terror. According to a journal, Crime History & Societies; During the English Captain Swing protests of the 1830s it was rumoured that Irish itinerant working men were paid by wealthy Jews to commit arson. The adherents of Captain Swing were at pains to emphasize that they did not cooperate with the fireraiser. 80 Churches were burnt to the ground in Canada by arsonists who accused the church of killing children and burying them. The accusation has been proven false. Not one body has been ...

A question I ask people periodically is, if they could change one thing to remedy the decline of society, what would it be? It cant be something like going back in time to alter things or summoning extraterrestrials like Klaatu and Gort to police society. It hast to be something that is theoretically possible no matter how unlikely or unworkable. Some of the responses are things like term limits for politicians, elimination of the income tax, ending or enhancing the drug war, voter IDs, policing the borders, mandatory prison sentences, ending lifetime appointment of judges, legalizing drugs that are presently illegal, increasing the number of police, and so on.

San Francisco Decays Taking Retail With It
Post Date: 2023-09-05 22:01:15 by Charles_Byrd
It should come as no surprise that an enterprising San Franciscan came up with the idea to host a "doom loop" tour of the moldering city on a hill. The plot twist is that Alex Ludlum, who put together the tour, canceled and refunded tickets for his "Downtown Doom Loop Walking Tour" before its intended Aug. 26 debut. That would be the weekend Nordstrom shuttered its flagship store in downtown San Francisco. Click for Full Text!
Yes, Washington is a gerontocracy – and it's our fault
Post Date: 2023-09-01 01:14:56 by Charles_Byrd
For the second time in recent months, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell froze in the middle of a press conference, staring off in silence before being saved by an aide. The episode was widely covered by the establishment media and fairly so, considering his position and power. It would be nice, and ethical, if the same level of scrutiny was applied to our cognitively compromised president, who regularly wanders off to shake hands with invisible leprechauns, struggles to navigate stairs and forgets the name of his Cabinet members.

Should We Abolish Zoning?
Post Date: 2023-08-30 22:39:05 by Charles_Byrd
Most of Americas land area is zoned, a government regulation that tells landowners what theyre allowed to build in different places, and how much of it they can build. Some experts are now recommending getting rid of zoning entirely. Are they right? I consider the proposal in a new paper. The case for abolishing zoning ends up a lot stronger than I expected.

In the Land of the Free, Americans are Still Fighting for the Freedom to Pump Gas

For the first time since the Truman administration, Oregon drivers will be permitted to grab a fuel hose and fill their gas tanks all by themselves. Governor Tina Kotek on Friday signed legislation, which went into effect immediately, that lifts the states 72-year ban on self-serve filling stations, leaving New Jersey as the last state in the US with a prohibition on self-serving gasoline stations.

Historical Living . . . in the City?
Post Date: 2023-08-23 19:05:23 by Charles_Byrd
When someone says, traditional lifestyle, we think of historical farms, countryside views, gardens, animals, sunrises, and sunsets. We rarely, if ever, think of apartments, city streets, and rental townhomes with historical living. Perhaps youre a college student in a campus dorm room. Maybe your job keeps you in an urban studio apartment. Perhaps skyrocketing housing costs prevent you from owning the country cottage of your dreams. How can we aspire to live historically if we are constantly surrounded by modern environments? Click for Full Text!

When All Crimes Are Those Against the State
Post Date: 2023-08-19 02:01:40 by Charles_Byrd
The above principle is a simple one, yet its the basis for all criminal law. In turn, criminal law is the basis for Common Law, the legal system for English-speaking peoples and much of the rest of the world. The idea is a simple one: If party A aggresses against party B, party B is entitled under the law to restitution or compensation to be paid by party A to party B. Click for Full Text!
The Best Political Writer You Never Heard Of

One day, Mike Royko was all done. Mike Royko was on the second page of The Chicago Tribune. Boy did he write some good politics. He cut down the Daleys in his writing like nobodys business. He played softball 16 inch, like a true Chicagoan. 16 inch is the kind of softball you can play with no mitt on one hand and a can of Old Style beer in the other hand. The ball is soft. The home runs are fun. The thing just lobs off the bat through the air. Click for Full Text!

Journalists including Michael Shellenberger have exposed what they dub the Censorship Industrial Complex, a tangled web of the worlds most powerful government agencies, NGOs, and private corporations that work together to stifle unapproved narratives.

Is America Doomed?
Post Date: 2023-08-13 03:00:23 by Charles_Byrd
Is time running out for America? Throughout human history, great civilizations have risen and fell, and many believe that the U.S. will be no exception. At this point, we have already drifted so far from our core values that our founders would not even be able to recognize the Republic that they once established if they were alive today. Of course most Americans realize that something has gone horribly wrong, but most of them also believe that sending the right people to Washington is the answer. But is that really the solution to what ails us? According to a brand new Rasmussen poll that was just released, 40 percent of likely U.S. voters believe that Joe Biden must win the next ...
I'm Not Really Enjoying the Show
Post Date: 2023-08-13 02:31:36 by Charles_Byrd
The Show Must Go On, but I'm not really enjoying the show. One reason why is I Keep Changing Channels But It's Still the Same Program, i.e. the programming and marketing are now homogenized. Another is Even the Aliens Are Boring, i.e. everything is so sensationalized and hyped that we are now desensitized to it all. A third reason is our culture has perfected the craft of self-parody, rendering parody impossible. To parody foolish excess, we exaggerate a two-patty burger into a four-patty burger: oops, they've already hyped four-patty burgers. Click for Full Text!
Are You Smarter Than a "Social Media Influencer?"
Post Date: 2023-08-13 02:16:43 by Charles_Byrd
Back in the antiquated days of 2007, a television show burst upon the scene with the provocative title, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? By and large, the adults who competed proved that they werent. Which really says something, considering that todays 5th graders arent exactly well educated. The popular program was hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, who achieved notoriety through his You might be a redneck if
jokes. Foxworthy, like many a comedian smarter or not smarter than a 5th grader, recognized that there was gold in gently ridiculing the intelligence, habits, and appearance of rednecks. After all, to be a redneck, you have to be ...
