Prezydential Speechifications

May 30th, 2012 by Pecos Bill

I heered as them slaughterhouses in Chicaggy pretty much swarmed with Poles.  Howsomever, that there’s no call for bein’ dumber ‘n a stump and oratin’ ’bout Polish death camps.  Folks ain’t cattle.  Them there genyoowine death camps weren’t Polish at all, they did their killin’ under the Nazi brand.  Which I reckon should be common knowledge, as I seem to recollect we had to posse up practically the whole Yoonited States to settle those Nazi skunks’ hash.

This hyer diplomacy of the Prezydent’s puts me in mind o’ one of Teddy’s sayin’s, as how the Prezydent oughter talk stupidly and put a big foot in his mouth, though now as I come to think on it, that weren’t the sayin’ at all.

The wisdom of Edmund Burke

May 24th, 2012 by Vader

The effect of liberty to individuals is, that they may do what they please: we ought to see what it will please them to do, before we risk congratulations, which may soon be turned into complaints.

–Edmund Burke

And, the inane line about who makes this country great goes a long ways towards explaining why I only lean libertarian.

Using Christian Ghosts to Criticize Christianity

May 22nd, 2012 by G.

This Ross Douthat piece is worth your while. He points out that most reflex liberalism (equality! fairness!) is really reflex Christianity, and it doesn’t make much sense to criticize Christianity’s sexual ethics, e.g., on the grounds that they conflict with some vaguely remembered echo of Christian doctrine on the dignity of man that’s been worked up into a generalized system.

My respect for Planned Parenthood would be greater if….

May 19th, 2012 by Bookslinger

they had offered this man a free vasectomy years ago. (Maybe they did, the article doesn’t say.)

Before we put the entire blame on the man, know that he did have 11 female accomplices in this matter.

Alternate titles:

1. Modern day polygamy…. more or less.

2. When you reward something, such as illegitmacy, you get more of it. See Jane Galt.

The Banality of Political Mendacity

May 18th, 2012 by Vader

Not only did Elizabeth Warren falsely claim a Native American heritage; not only did she repeat that claim in submitting three recipes to a “Cherokee” cookbook, Pow Wow Chow; but … get this … the three recipes she submitted were plagiarized.

I understand there is talk of Obama replacing Biden on the ticket. It seems to me we have an obvious candidate for Biden’s replacement.
