Some funny local news to ease you into the weekend: only rich old white women care about diversity

While I was offline celebrating Thanksgiving, my local news ran this precious headline: “County Seeks Diverse Voices on Race, But So Far It’s Mostly White Women.” The lede: “Arlington is seeking diverse voices in its Dialogues on Race and Equity, but so far the biggest group of respondents have been middle-aged white women who are relativelyContinue reading “Some funny local news to ease you into the weekend: only rich old white women care about diversity”

In case you’re wondering what the difference is between a Beltway libertarian and everyone else…

While I was offline and celebrating Thanksgiving, Cato constitutional scholar Ilya Shapiro responded to Kentucky representative Tomas Massie with some pejorative comments about the rest of America: For those who are unfamiliar with Thomas Massie, he is pretty much a mountain man who lives off the grid. The Reason libertarian crowd doubled down on thisContinue reading “In case you’re wondering what the difference is between a Beltway libertarian and everyone else…”

RIP Walter E. Williams

This afternoon I learned of the passing of Walter E. Williams, who I had the honor of studying under during my time as an undergrad. More than speaking to his accomplishments as an economist–which are plenty, and many have outlined them better than I can–I’d like to talk about him as a person, from justContinue reading “RIP Walter E. Williams”

Some good news shared over the Thanksgiving break… and how liberals obviously responded to it

I never bring my computer with me when I’m going on vacation, so I’ve been MIA while celebrating Thanksgiving with my family (their home also does not have WiFi). I missed this announcement from Katie Miller about the birth of her son: While the main tweet announcing the newborn baby had nearly 26,000 “likes” byContinue reading “Some good news shared over the Thanksgiving break… and how liberals obviously responded to it”

Just saw a conservative org with a job listing in the Washington Post

Which proves, again, some conservatives just don’t get it, and are so very desperate to be accepted by the Washington Post crowd… which will never accept them. Now they’re also seeking employees from the Washington Post’s breed of conservatives, so, hopefully, the Washington Post runs their think pieces one day.

Looks like the conservatives have their own “hate whitey” books now

I scrolled down to the bottom of a Kevin Williamson piece on NRO and saw this new addition to his bio: Yes, it’s real. The book is real and it just came out. Part of the summary from the Google books description reads: “Coming from the world he writes about, Williamson understands it in aContinue reading “Looks like the conservatives have their own “hate whitey” books now”

Welp, that was expected

I’ve been MIA a little bit and so I only just saw this now: And I also missed yesterday: And this, in between: From the summary: “In Joe Biden, we have replaced Donald Trump with a more conventional and better-mannered embodiment of the same short-sighted thinking.” I guess it’s worth reading the whole piece, ifContinue reading “Welp, that was expected”

Huh, this looks like a real turn for Fox after all:

Not to beat a dead horse, but the girl from my last post that thought it was her job to fact-check Giuliani, Fox White House correspondent Kristin Fisher… … Is apparently filling in for Dana Perino today: Whoops? Of course, she is a media darling now too: Even our favorite conservative news outlet is doingContinue reading “Huh, this looks like a real turn for Fox after all:”

Did Fox give out marching orders yesterday?

Consider: And, from Tucker on Fox, which, for some reason WordPress will not let me embed. Read/watch here, but here’s the headline: This was circulating around on my Facebook feed yesterday, as a result. Many seem to view last night’s Tucker episode in particular as a betrayal, and that the last hope at Fox isContinue reading “Did Fox give out marching orders yesterday?”

More problems with the conservative intelligentsia: fawning over leftists who want them dead

Why do conservative intellectuals continuously fawn over Matthew Yglesias? It seems like every time Matty posts something crime-thinky, usually IQ graphs to stroke his own ego about his college major, people on the right go crazy with cheers of “one of us!” Now that Matt has decided to leave Vox and go for Substack, manyContinue reading “More problems with the conservative intelligentsia: fawning over leftists who want them dead”
