The Case Against Stay-At-Home Parents?

Sunday, June 26, 2016 13:30 1 Comment

I only take the time to comment on this piece in Bloomberg (“The Hidden Cost for Stay-At-Home American Parents”) because I see many opinion pieces on this topic that are so poorly thought out and written, and they are rarely challenged for the shallow analysis that is presented. The writer, Michelle Jamrisko, has cited a report [...]

Intellectually Gifted Children: the New Retarded

Friday, June 24, 2016 14:32 3 Comments

A friend of mine has been having school problems with her two male children, ages 9 and 7. Issues of behavior, “inappropriate” comments (meaning, brutally honest), and a lack of “fitting in.” Hearing the problems at hand, and knowing their parents are smarties, it always seemed to me that these kids were very likely intellectually [...]

The Empathy Industry

Empathy is a wonderful trait for humans to possess. It is a trait that is learned through maturity and emotional intelligence. Empathy is not supposed to be a form of self-punishment, but a characteristic of understanding another’s place and time, and yes, feelings. Corporate America has long been at the head of the line in [...]

Janet Yellen’s Ticking Sound

This article on Yahoo provides some good analysis on the state of the Fed’s no-exit strategy: no matter which way it turns, there are land mines between that beast and all of its purported save-the-day fiscal policies. Here’s a mouth full of marbles from Yellen on the rate hikes, yesterday, in her semi-annual purple prose to [...]

The Omnipotent Hag on Innocence

Tuesday, June 21, 2016 6:47 1 Comment

The presumption of innocence is a staple of Anglo-American common law, except in Feinstein-Land. She states, here, that Americans shall ”petition to prove they are innocent and get off of the watchlist.” That is, the arbitrary, totalitarian “watchlist” that the United States government randomly assembles by way of secret evidence and uncorroborated sources and information based [...]

Condos for Car Nuts, or, the $100k+ Man Cave

Monday, June 20, 2016 16:21 No Comments

Surely it’s ironic that a closed General Motors assembly plant in Pontiac, Michigan would become the new home to a “car aficionado playground,” or what is known as the M1 Car Condo project. To quote an article from MLive: DETROIT – There are many places where people meet in Metro Detroit to proudly display their [...]

One Giant Step for Transgenderkind

Well, I don’t see much evidence that he is breaking records, but all the same, you wanted it, you got it. Men can self-identify as a chick and use their inherent athletic advantage to win at sports. As media host Brian Wilson noted on my Facebook page, “bring back roller derby!”

The Victimology Olympics

Wanna go to Poverty-Refugee-Homeless camp? Here’s a new article on Forbes on Misery Tourism: a new cottage industry for the achievement-hating, misery-embracing, guilt-fabricating, wealth-redistributing, lefty do-gooders whose job it is to keep alive the mentality that all achievers, doers, and producers must be dragged down to the level of the lowest and poorest common denominator in order for them [...]

Muhammad Ali Was Right

Sunday, June 5, 2016 7:30 4 Comments

My Facebook thread is filled with dissing of Muhammad Ali by, what I can mostly discern, those who are conservatives, Republicans, and assorted fundamentalists. Each slam is of the same boorish content; draft dodger, draft dodger, anti-American, yada yada. All I see is these folks writing about hating Ali while they instead wish to worship [...]
