Katahdin Woods

This should be a feel good story, but… The family that makes Burt’s Bees Lip Balm (they may make other things, that’s what I know them for), the St Clairs, took some of their money and started buying up land that had been logged over to the point that the Lumber Companies didn’t want it …

Zombie Lie-berman

It has been my great displeasure to meet Joe Lie-berman in person on several occasions. He is the smarmiest, oiliest, limp handshaked, cheat, con artist and dissimulator I’ve ever been in proximity to, even for a politician. I never left an encounter without wanting to shower with a Brillo Pad. He’s petty and vindictive, in …

On the night of August 31st – September 1st, 1939 Nazis (real actual factual members of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) took several concentration camp prisoners and one Silesian farmer with pro-Polish sympathies arrested the day before and murdered them after a short broadcast in Polish to make it appear as if there had been a …

One of the …

Triple Crown: The Middle Child

Avenge the patriotic gore That flecked the streets of Baltimore, And be the battle queen of yore, Maryland! My Maryland! Hark to …

The Master and The Student

Stockton– Richard Nixon is gone now, and I am poorer for it. He was the real thing — a political monster straight out of Grendel and a very dangerous enemy. He could shake your hand and stab you in the back at the same time. He lied to his friends and betrayed the trust of …

Beware The ‘Gifts’ Of The Jinn

Otherwise known as Genies your wish, as they say, is their command. The results are seldom satisfying and often self destructive. This piece has some “category errors” (h/t Lambert). The Institutional Democratic Party is hardly any definition of “progressive” and certainly is not representative of “The Left”. There is apparently little or no interest at …
