Time for race hustler & Alabama state Rep. Holmes to pay up on $100k offer

Posted by: ST on April 11, 2014 at 5:54 pm » 4 Comments

I absolutely love it: A Democratic Alabama state representative is under fire for a racially charged challenge he made last month that has backfired big time. TheBlaze reported that during a legislative session discussion on abortion rights, Rep. Alvin Holmes speculated his Republican counterparts would be in favor of abortion if black men impregnated their daughters. Rep. […]

 

What do we have to do to win the culture war?

Posted by: ST on March 28, 2014 at 9:32 am » 13 Comments

I read the below series of tweets from my friend @KemberleeKaye on a disturbing experience she had this morning at a local donut shop in Texas when she went to get breakfast. In a nutshell, a nice elderly lady in the store saw a homeless man sitting nearby and bought him a donut. She walked […]

 

#BanBossy? How about let’s ban #FeministHypocrisy?

Posted by: ST on March 17, 2014 at 7:05 pm » 2 Comments

Much hay has been made over the last week over the campaign launched by Facebook COO and Girl Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chávez called “Ban Bossy” – a movement that supposedly seeks to “empower” young girls by symbolically “banning” so-called hurtful words that allegedly “hold them back” from wanting to take leadership positions when they […]

 

Maria Conchita Alonso loses acting gig after endorsing Tea Party candidate

Posted by: ST on January 19, 2014 at 10:56 am » 4 Comments

“Wait, there’s no bias against conservatives in Hollywood. Nobody loses a job over their politics, right?” Justified actor Nick Searcy sarcastically asked on Twitter after reading this story from San Francisco’s KPIX (hat tip): SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — A famed actress is facing backlash in San Francisco’s Latino community, after she voiced support for a conservative […]

 

“Dissident feminist” Paglia rips the cultural war on boys

Posted by: ST on December 28, 2013 at 7:41 pm » 4 Comments

Though there are many areas of disagreement, probably the area where I find the strongest agreement with self-proclaimed “dissident feminist” Camille Paglia is in her consistent dissection of modern-day “feminism”, our politically correct culture and how it has deliberately and effectively neutered a generation or more of young men. Wall Street Journal’s Weekend Interview features […]

 

A&E backs down, will resume filming Duck Dynasty w/ Phil Robertson

Posted by: ST on December 27, 2013 at 7:00 pm » 4 Comments

First, it was Cracker Barrel that backed down, now the network that carries the popular TV reality series Duck Dynasty has, too: “Duck Dynasty” supporters have won their standoff with A&E: The network  has reversed its suspension of star Phil Robertson for making anti-gay comments, and he will not miss a single episode of the […]

**Posted by Phineas It seems concealed-carry cuts down on gun crime: The purpose of the present study is to determine the effects of state-level assault weapons bans and concealed weapons laws on state-level murder rates. Using data for the period 1980 to 2009 and controlling for state and year fixed effects, the results of the […]

 

DC #Obamacare “outreach” sees clubgoers more interested in condoms than care

Posted by: ST on December 24, 2013 at 11:35 am » 1 Comment

The Politico reports on the latest unconventional attempt at Obamacare “outreach” – this time in the White House’s backyard in DC. And with most things related to the so-called “Affordable Care Act”, it was an epic fail (bolded emphasis added by me): Washington’s new health insurance exchange dispatched a sign-up envoy to one of the […]

 

Though outraged, @AETV is happy to take “flyover folks’” money

Posted by: Phineas on December 20, 2013 at 2:42 pm » 7 Comments

**Posted by Phineas My blog-buddy ST has already eloquently written about the intolerant, anti-Christian, anti-Southern bigotry behind A&E’s craven capitulation to liberal fascist pressure groups over “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s comments about sin and sinners, including homosexuality (1). Apparently, paraphrasing St. Paul’s first Epistle to the Corinthians is now enough to get one banned […]

 

Cultural Decline Continued: “Twerk” added to Oxford dictionary

Posted by: ST on August 28, 2013 at 11:31 am » 1 Comment

This is a sign o’ the times, my dear readers, and most definitely not in a good way: LONDON –  Twerking, the rump-busting up-and-down dance move long beloved on America’s hip-hop scene, has officially gone mainstream. It’s got the English dictionary entry to prove it. Britain’s Oxford Dictionaries said the rapid-fire gyrations employed by U.S. pop starlet Miley Cyrus […]
