“The self-seeking landlubbers have won.”

March 15th, 2014 by Vader

What is it with these damp agnostic English conservatives?

I do not know how basically decent men like Dalrymple and Derbyshire get by without a hope for a better world to come.

And, yes, I find some of Derbyshire’s pronouncements on race regrettable. He still strikes me as basically decent. I recognize that that seems a huge stretch to most people nowadays.

Aquila non capit muscas

March 04th, 2014 by Jeeves

Good Medicine

February 21st, 2014 by Vader

On August 15, 1942, an American fighter pilot named Bill Warden bailed out of his crippled aircraft near the western end of Guadalcanal, which at the time was controlled by the Japanese.

Overlooked Christmas Scriptures

December 19th, 2013 by Adam G.

Christmas is fundamentally a family holiday. We should celebrate the Christ child, but we don’t need to be lugubrious about it. We don’t need to suppress family fun because the family is in the image of the Holy Family and pleasing to God. Your family relation is part of the deep spiritual core of Christmas, as two overlooked passages of Christmas scripture show. (more…)
