Amazing Person, RIP

Friday, September 27, 2013 19:17 2 Comments

If I titled this blog “Joy Covey, RIP” it is likely that no one would look at it because they probably don’t know  Joy Covey by name. Last week, Joy Covey died at 50 years old in a cycling accident – a collision with a car – in San Mateo County, California. Joy Covey was [...]

The Culture of Extended Adolescence

For this post, it’s appropriate to start off with two quotes from the article: Child psychologists are being given a new directive which is that the age range they work with is increasing from 0-18 to 0-25. …”There’s an increasing number of adults who are watching children’s movies in the cinema,” says Furedi. “If you [...]

Miley Cyrus, Detroit Hipster

Poor Miley is dragging the D down with her tale of her “Detroit Days.” As one Detroiter said, Miley “said she grew up in Detroit for no logical reason.” Pretty much everyone else has jumped on this let’s be really into Detroit right now bandwagon, one more can’t hurt anything. Climb aboard, Miley. The Tongued [...]

Detroit: Anarcho-Goats to Replace Government Workers?

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 21:48 2 Comments

I love any story about government being so incompetent that unionized, pensionized, lifetime-employed city workers need to be replaced by … goats. Since Detroit can’t afford to maintain thousands of acres of vacant land in spite of its bloated payroll, one City Councilman wants to explore using goats and sheep to mow the city’s overgrowth. What [...]

Nuts as Lethal Weapons

Joel Stein once wrote a great piece in the LA Times that I am sure had him on the receiving end of thousands of hate mails. Your kid doesn’t have an allergy to nuts. Your kid has a parent who needs to feel special. Your kid also spends recess running and screaming, “No! Stop! Don’t [...]

Beyond Being Mugged By the State

Friday, September 20, 2013 20:51 No Comments

I may be able to one-up LewRockwell’s post in terms of a story about being mugged by the gang of thieves writ large. William Davidson passed on in 2009 with a net worth of $3 billion. He is the founder of Detroit-based Guardian Industries, and he owned the Detroit Pistons, the Detroit Shock (WNBA), and the [...]

Anarcho-Perspective on Detroit is Catching On

Travis Holte sent me this video along with the message, “What? Reason didn’t interview you for this piece???” Travis has an amazing eagle eye for these things, and I shouldn’t promote Reason’s take-offs on my anarcho-Detroit culture since they have never cited me while conducting their imitation of my take on the ground-up, voluntaryist Detroit [...]

Paleos vs. Vegans (Again). Snore.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 19:16 5 Comments

This article is only worth a visit because this topic is so worth noting that it is so unworthy of our attention in the long run. This article, “Why Vegans and Paleos Should Stop hating Each Other,” is written by a vegan because only vegans care about this irrelevant tripe. I do not diss the [...]
