My Apparent Lack of Esoteric Wisdom

I really hate vegan-yoga-meditation-new agey, crystal healing, supernaturalist, Age-of-Aquarius, pseudo-consciousness raising fluff bullshit. I just had to say that. Something in my email box provoked me to say that tonight. Have you ever been to Sedona, Arizona? My folks used to live out that way, so I visited often. It’s a fun, clean, quiet town [...]

Is Detroit a Bicyclist’s Paradise?

NOTE: Some version of this will end up being published on tomorrow. In July 2009, the New York Times published a piece about urban bicycling in Detroit titled, “Bike among the Ruins.” The gist of the piece was that Detroit, the city where I was born and lived for a decade, is an undiscovered [...]

As usual, the bobbleheads in the MSM (mainstream media) are doing a shoddy job of reporting this story: “Florida Father Apologizes for School Bus Tirade, Threats.” A Florida man apologized Tuesday for boarding his daughter’s school bus earlier this month and threatening the other children and the driver, saying he acted out of frustration over [...]

Lew Rockwell, perhaps influenced by a certain person on this blog, on the blog: As more and more Americans wake up to the dangers posed by high-fructose corn syrup—promoted by the feds through massive domestic farm subsidies and protectionism against Cuban sugar—the political corn industry wants to change the name of its federal product.

Dessert is Breakfast

I am always perplexed at how people are so content to keep up a pattern of distorting words and definitions without a flinch. I had a surreal conversation recently, after flipping through the website of a Bed & Breakfast proprietor that was quite the piece of work. I placed a call to inquire about reservations [...]

No matter what you think of these politicos and their tactics, one can’t help but love this clever and funny ad from John Dennis, opponent of Nancy Pelosi.

The CDC is a Criminal Organization

For over a year, I have followed, documented, and exposed the government’s fear mongering regarding the swine flu pandemic botch. The results were predictable from the start. In June of this year, this spectacular article came and went with barely a mention ’round the Internet. Richard Gale and Gary Null wrote a very important piece, [...]
