When it comes to national politics for at least the past decade, the Republican Party has been absolutely terrible, and they’re once again demonstrating exactly why they’re the stupid party. When Republicans announced that they would not even consider any nomination Obama makes for the Supreme Court after Justice Antonin Scalia’s death they created yet […]

Why the GOP Hates Donald Trump
March 18, 2016

Mitt Romney, the quintessential establishmentarian, made it clear that the official position of the GOP elite is for a contested convention to rob Donald Trump of the Republican nomination at the Cleveland convention, despite his having more delegates than either of the other two candidates still running. Ironically, this would require the rule that was […]

The New York Times is running a column for their Sunday edition by Nicholas Kristof entitled, “Donald the Dangerous,” where Kristof says that if Trump were elected he might actually start a war.

The GOP’s Secret Weapon to Bring Down Trump
March 3, 2016

It’s an interesting turn of events to see the Republican establishment so terrified of Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination that they’re turning to Mitt Romney in a last ditch effort to bring him down. That’s right, Mitt Romney, the single worst candidate they could have possibly chosen to run against Obamacare in 2012, and […]

I recently had a short exchange with Conor Friedersdorf, columnist with The Atlantic, and well worth reading, regarding who he would prefer to have nominate the next Supreme Court Justice. I would much rather have a Barack Obama appointee to SCOTUS than a Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton appointee. — Conor Friedersdorf (@conor64) February 27, […]

Anti-Porn Feminism
February 26, 2016

If we’re going to define feminism as an ideology that supports equal political rights for men and women then I am all for it, gender shouldn’t matter when it comes to voting oneself into serfdom, after all, but too often it is invoked for causes beyond this narrow definition. This is not a problem that […]

Everybody Has Something to Hide
February 24, 2016

With Apple standing up to the FBI and refusing to create a special version of iOS to allow the FBI to get access the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, but in reality to allow any law enforcement agency in the country to have access to any iPhone that they want, some people are shrugging and saying, […]

2016 has brought about another ridiculous Presidential cycle, and several wrong predictions made by me. Here are some of the things I’ve claimed would or would not happen only to watch as the very opposite happened. Probably the biggest mistake I made was predicting early on that Donald Trump’s popularity would fade over time. Perhaps […]

Does It Matter Why Apple is Opposing the FBI?
February 22, 2016

There are some people complaining that Apple’s defiance of the FBI wanting them to build a special version of iOS with a backdoor for them to access people’s data is nothing more than a publicity stunt. Pretty strong evidence against those claiming Apple's motive is PR: more than half the country opposes its position https://t.co/LhsfvvAvUS […]
