    In the days of old, leisure time was not thought of as a chance to “veg out,” but as an opportunity to pursue one’s passions and interests — an outlet for the sides of a man that were not stimulated in his professional vocation. Hobbies were deemed important for the way in which they can strengthen every part of a man’s life. They can bring you joy, increase your eye for detail, keep your mind sharp, expand your creativity, help you meet friends, and teach you valuable skills. In short, hobbies add interest to your life and help you become...

    So I graduated school today. 15 1/2 month program culminated this afternoon. There were times when I wanted to pull out my hair, but I made the right decision. Out of less than 30 people - yes, less than 30 people - they chose me to give the valedictory speech, which I totally bombed. I didn't bother to even put together an outline for one. I was really nervous the whole day, and leading up to being introduced, my mind went blank. I guess not bad for a kid that went to NYC public schools; spent 5 years in one...

    Attention Shelby Mayes! Please quote the parts of Ben Shaprio’s UC Berkeley speech that caused you “psychological trauma.” The student newspaper at UC Berkeley recently published this opinion column by Shelby Mayes, a person who is described as being “a UC Berkeley student and the membership development director for the Black Student Union.”Mayes writes:“If your perceived definition of violence is limited to the confines of physical contact, that’s probably because you’ve never had to experience the psychological trauma that comes along with being a Black person in America. I didn’t need to be physically harmed to feel violated by my...

    To tweak Timothy Learys famous turn on, tune in, drop out for these times, let me suggest that we turn off, tune out, drop out. Therefore, to the extent possible: "Turn off" any programming or any commercial activity that is a forum that enables the left to continue their relentless attack against our values, our country and yes, our choice for President. If one is interested in a particular sport, for example, get together with friends and play the game. "Tune out" all noise, sloganeering, voices and virtue signaling that come from the various groups that, again, routinely attack us,...

    When Milo Yiannopoulos holds a press conference to explain why UC Berkeley canceled his upcoming speech, he should just go ahead and give the speech at the press conference According to this article from NPR, UC Berkeley has cancelled Milo Yiannopoulos’s upcoming speech that had been been scheduled to take place next week, because the necessary paperwork had not been filled out. It also says that Yiannopoulos will hold a press conference this Saturday to explain why his speech was canceled.If lack of proper paperwork is the real reason for the cancellation, then they can just reschedule at a future date.When...

    Mississippi second-grade teacher fired for saying black people should “move back to Africa” According to this article from the New York Post, a Mississippi second-grade teacher was recently fired for posting the following on her Facebook page:“If blacks in this country are so offended, no one is forcing them to stay here. Why don’t they pack up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living. I am sure our government will pay for it! We pay for everything else.”Wow. Her statement is highly rude and offensive, and is totally inappropriate for someone who teaches children....

    Is fighting sprawl still a goal for those who decide the fate of transportation funding at the federal, state and local levels?Transportation planning is deeply connected to economic development, but there in any agreement about transportation funding among government leaders often ends.Parag Khanna, a senior public policy analyst in Singapore and author of “Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization,” summarized the political divide over transportation planning like this: “America is increasingly divided not between red states and blue states, but between connected hubs and disconnected backwaters.”But division that stymies transportation planning goes further. Government leaders have always been divided...

    I feel sad for anyone who thinks Hobby Lobby is racist for selling cotton decorations MSN recently published this news story about a woman in Texas who said Hobby Lobby was racist because it sells cotton decorations.For something such as this, the context matters a huge amount.The article includes this picture: In that context, I don’t see any problem.They sell cotton balls at every supermarket and pharmacy.They sell cotton clothing at every clothing store.There needs to be a distinction between actual racism, and imaginary racism.Anyone who criticizes Hobby Lobby for selling cotton has allowed herself to be brainwashed by social justice...

    ABC’s self-described “eating pizza” expert, Jimmy Kimmel was at it again on Tuesday, admittedly politicizing his son’s medical condition to push for socialized medicine. This time he was targeting Republican Senator Bill Cassidy and Senate Republicans with disgusting charges of aiming to do cruel things with the lives and health care of Americans. In all, Kimmel’s description painted the GOP as villains in a straight-to-DVD Hollywood flop. “And this new bill actually does pass the Jimmy Kimmel Test, but a different Jimmy Kimmel Test,” he declared, noting that Cassidy wanted his bill to live up to Kimmel’s situation. “This one,...

    People who believe in extraterrestrial life are sometimes referred to in a mocking manner. In the ‘X-Files’ TV-series Fox Mulder is often referred to as ‘Spooky,’ but according to a recent article, maybe he should be called ‘racist’– if Mulder believes that aliens built the pyramids in Africa. The Quartz Media article, “Outlandish theories that aliens built the pyramids are rooted in racism,” by Julien Benoit is critical of those who believe the pyramids or other ancient structures were built by aliens. Some may call this belief simply "odd," but Benoit just out and out labels it racist. From the article:...

    On Friday, September 15, the Associated Press reported on a fascinating new wrinkle in the centuries-old face of unconstitutional federal activity, and the details might surprise many who are concerned about the sticky issue of immigration. According to the report, Federal District Judge Harry Leinenweber just ruled that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department cannot withhold federal public safety grants to so-called Sanctuary Cities if the politicians in those cities did not conform to federal immigration policies. This, in effect, temporarily removes a powerful tool in the Trump Administrations work shed as the President attempts to wrangle with...
