I am a conservative, libertarian constitutionalist, and a staunch defender of free speech, regardless of ideology or IQ. Always let stupid people talk. It makes them easier to identify.

Leaving our children as free as our parents left us is a war without end. Best we quit whining about it, and get to fighting it.

Watching a Federalist Society Zoom webinar. The speaker is a highly respected legal scholar. From the office where he is speaking, the bookshelf behind him is filled with books about wine.

Doh! I knew I should have gone to law school.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

My wife's company has a "culture" of having everyone on video for every remote call. At first, I thought that sounded kinda nice.

Then I discovered that every time I'm in the middle of an audio only call, and someone is sharing really important information onscreen, she starts one of her video group hugs, and my call goes to crap.

Now, I just think her company is infested with self-absorbed, narcissistic twats.

It's all about perspective.

Woke teachers wonder why parents don't trust them to teach their children. This is what they show second graders when they KNOW kids are at home with parents monitoring what they're being taught. Are we supposed to believe it gets better in classrooms, where teachers feel less scrutinized?

If the Democrats finally do succeed in bringing this American Experiment to an end, by forcing through their radical agenda to rig all our future elections and disarm the American people, then our great-great-grandchildren will remember the name Joe Manchin. This should be of no comfort to Mr. Manchin.

When we were in elementary school, every child knew the name Benedict Arnold. Almost none of us remembered WHO he was, but we all knew WHAT he was.

Fascinating discussion between Jordan Peterson and Bret Weinstein.

Great to hear an exchange on the impact of cancel culture, disinformation and responsible public policy from very divergent points on the political spectrum.

If you want to get very good at anything, you have to want it enough to endure doing it very badly for a very long time.

We don’t teach our children that anymore, which may be why too many of them are good at nothing.
