    We’ve been through this before. I would like to see Trump out of office. But I don’t see Biden as a palatable alternative. I don’t see why that is that so difficult to grasp

    I regard Carter as a...

    One of my favorite characters is Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe. From the thirties through the sixties, he steadfastly refused to take time from his interests or even leave his brownstone on 35th Street...

    Utopian literature generally leaves me pretty cold. From Galt’s Gulch to Ecotopia, the characters spend way too much time justifying themselves and their way of thinking to be believable. Whatever...

    I see Kanye West announced his candidacy yesterday. Apparently he wasn’t aware that Joe Biden had previously explained that if you don’t vote for him you ain’t Black.

    I see lawsuits are blooming in Seattle from various parties damaged by their brief summer of love. Perhaps we will see some big settlements, although not of the sort Rob likes to anticipate.

    I...

    My favorite holiday (and my dog’s least favorite). You can keep your 1619 poppycock and ridiculous conspiracy theories, I’m sticking with the Spirit of ‘76. I’m keeping to the traditional “guns,...

    I would think it was Biden’s to lose at this point. His handlers are doing well to keep him under wraps to the extent they have.

    I remember he had an great reverence for land grant universities.

    Humor is subjective, but I have always found dudgeon to be funny. And there is something in me that enjoys watching people pour all their energy into an attempt at withering scorn.

    I can remember some pretty heated exchanges in years past. Remember Billy Bare Butt? Half the time I couldn’t figure out why he was so outraged.

    And I forget the name of the lady who was so...

    I don’t think this period will be remembered as a period of profound change. It will be remembered as a silly period at the start of a long secular decline. Seattle’s “Escape from New York”...

    I think, or at least hope, that you are being misled by an unfavorable signal to noise ratio. I don’t think, or at least I hope not, that the great majority of Americans are ready to go to war based...

    I think that’s true. Look at how our little Cultural Revolution has jumped the shark in the statue-smashing arena. I see the nitwit nihilists of Madison, WI have busted up a statue of Hans Christian...

    I have found it very helpful to exchange favors with my kinsmen because they are a lot more skilled with their gear than I am. I did more damage to my lawn with a wheelbarrow than he did with his...

    City vs Country Decision

    I was wondering the other day if the events of the last six months or so have changed any minds on the best choice of domicile in favor of the country.

    Camden added cops by breaking the union and reducing compensation costs. No more Woketopian than that.

    As long as there are cops, there will be bad cops. You can’t reform, abolish or protest your way to perfection. But we can always improve. And no one who isn’t selling some sort of nonsense thinks we...
