  • William Shatner: A Man's Man: Now And Then

    03/11/2023 8:08:35 PM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 40 replies
    William Shatner is a man who has spoken powerful English in a long acting career. As Captain Kirk, he said, “Sometimes a feeling is all we humans have to go on.” And the actor also said, "I always use a stunt double. Except in love scenes. I insist on doing them myself." He was the oldest man ever to fly in space. God Bless William Shatner. Lets not let manhood die.

    Ideas Sleep Furiously (blog) ^ | February 21, 2023 | Bo Winegard
    The proverbial Martian would find contemporary discourse about race in the West peculiar, even paradoxical. On the one hand, many modern intellectuals insist that race is a pernicious reification of superficial human differences that has been decisively refuted by modern science. On the other hand, many of these same intellectuals obsess about racial disparities and injustices and actively promote policies that treat people of different races differently (e.g., affirmative action). Thus, mainstream discourse simultaneously contends that belief in race is an anachronistic superstition and that racial equality is an ethical imperative that can only be achieved through racially conscious policy...

    The Pet Zealot ^ | March 04, 2023 | James Alain L.
    From books about dogs and their humans to books with dogs as main characters, there are so many books in which a dog-loving reader could spend years engrossed. All dog books are good dog books, just like Courtney Peppernell's book titled, "All Dogs Are Good." Nevertheless, some dog books stand out. Here are my top ten dog books you won’t want to miss and some worth trying. This list is bound to omit someone’s favorite, considering how short it is.

    Manhattan Contratian ^ | March 3, 2023 | Francis Merton
    The New Yorker is a magazine that I have barely noticed for decades. It is the epitome of the “New York groupthink” that I mention on my “About” page. But the current issue has a long (10,000+ words) piece by a guy named Nathan Heller, titled “The End of the English Major,” that I thought might be worth a look. Perhaps here we might find some liberal introspection about how infesting everything you control with racialist and gender obsessions and Critical Race Theory might not be such a great idea. Who was I trying to kid? What this article actually...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | February 24, 2023 | George Leef
    Sometimes you come across a book with such an intriguing title that you just have to dive into it. That was the case when I saw a reference to Paper Belt on Fire by Michael Gibson. The book’s subtitle sealed the deal: How Renegade Investors Sparked a Revolt Against the University. Too iconoclastic to pass up! The author, I learned, is a college graduate (New York University) who had embarked on a Ph.D. in philosophy at Oxford when he decided that the academic life wasn’t really what he wanted. Why? Because, he came to understand, it wouldn’t allow him free...

    Can’t say “queer” anymore! Authoritarians at Puffin just made hundreds of changes to Roald Dahl’s books. Here are some examples.By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)February 19, 2023This article from the Telegraph lists a huge numbers of the changes that publisher Puffin has recently made to Roald Dahl’s books.Dahl himself has been dead for decades, so he had nothing to do with these changes. I’m certain that when he wrote his original text, he put a tremendous amount of thought into the words that he chose. I’m guessing that he would probably drop dead from a heart attack if...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | February 17, 2023 | Lloyd Billingsley
    February 21 will mark three years since Philip Haney, 66, was “found deceased” in Amador County, California, killed by a gunshot to the chest. The victim was not the typical Sierra foothills resident. Philip Haney was the author of See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, first published in 2016. The DHS whistleblower also authored Frontpage articles, “Deobond Attacks in San Bernardino, Sri Lanka,” “The Terrorist Ties that Bind,” and “The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America’s Ominous Post-Election Statement.” The expert on Islamic jihad had been punished for doing his job at...
  • Black Student Union at Auburn University shares list of 250 racial slurs for white people, including "Snow pigs," "Ku Klux Karens," and "neanderthal monkey”

    Not The Bee ^ | Feb 13, 2023 | Staff
    I know we've been told that black people can't be racist. You know, there's no such thing as anti-white racism, because white people are the ones with all the power. But, I don't know, this leaked message from the Black Student Union at Auburn University in Alabama seems pretty racist to me. The messages include numerous comments by students making fun of white people as a whole, and the group created a Google document for members to create new racial slurs for white people. The document includes over 200 anti-white slurs like, "snow pigs," "saltine cracker," "unseasoned chicken, "colonizer," "cotton...
  • Language Police Target ‘Jump The Gun,’ ‘Roll With The Punches’

    Daily Wire ^ | Feb 13, 2023 | By Joseph Curl
    It’ll never end. The liberal language police have come for a slew of terms they deem to be ultra-violent. And now the ultra-woke are coming for more words and phrases. They abhor “jump the gun,” “roll with the punches” and even “deadline,” claiming they’re just too “violent.” For the record, the word “deadline” was first recorded in 1864 during the Civil War. As both sides captured prisoners of war, a “do not cross” line was traced around prisons, and guards were ordered to shoot anyone that might cross the “dead line.” And by the way, “jump the gun” has nothing...

  • Farrah Fawcett - Innovative, Explicit And Wholesome - Sexual Liberation Endorsed By James Joyce

    02/01/2023 10:41:30 PM PST · by Ozguy1945 · 28 replies
    Farrah Fawcett's glorious female beauty remains an absolute delight, but her relative restraint in how strong she comes on is a refreshing development after the truly fatal power of Marilyn Monroe's charms. But that sexual liberation of the fifties, sixties and following decades has now produced the evil third wave feminist reaction of attacking normal men for their heterosexuality. I do not in any way condone crimes like rape and pedophilia or serial manipulation of women by men with huge economic power. But I believe in freedom. It works. Repression of who and what we are is disastrous. Most adult...
  • One Pulitzer Prize Later, Media Still Unwilling To Admit Russia-Gate Failure

    Daily Caller ^ | on January 31, 2023 | Kate Anderson
    Media outlets are reluctant to admit any wrongdoing in their coverage regarding the narrative of collusion between former President Donald Trump and Russia in the 2016 election, according to a report by the Columbia Journalism Review. The New York Times and the Washington Post were both awarded a Pulitzer Prize for their reporting on Russian interference in the election, despite questions surrounding the legitimacy of some of the claims made. “On the few occasions in which new information emerged that caused us to reexamine past reporting, we did so forthrightly,” the Post told CJR. Major media outlets that played a...

    Title TK ^ | 5 Jan 2023 | Stephanie Gutman
    "Was he alone in possession of a memory?” wondered Winston Smith as he starts a diary in the novel 1984. ******************************************** I resonated to that line massively when I read it again in my umpteenth re-reading of George Orwell’s masterpiece. Yes, I know. Constantly referring to the Orwellian-ness of everything is just as bad as comparing every authoritarian who pops up to Hitler, but there is this feeling around the edges these days…of being stuck in an eternal present where no one knows anything about the past; that nothing’s very deep; that opinions are always binary and that there’s no...

    The Grumpy Economist (blog) ^ | December 28, 2022 | John Cochrane
    Charles Calomiris has a splendid WSJ review of a great book, "The Myth of American Inequality" by by Phil Gramm, Robert Ekelund and John Early. It is a "'a truth universally acknowledged,' according to the Economist magazine in 2020" that little progress has been made in raising average American living standards since the 1960s; that poverty has not been substantially reduced over the period; that the median household’s standard of living has not increased in recent years and inequality is currently high and rising Most of all the last one. All of this is false. Most of all the last...

    One of my favorite projects at the Martin Center is the cultivation of our higher-education library. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I vastly prefer to read books printed on paper instead of words on a screen; the Martin Center’s growing library gives me great joy. At the end of last year, I set a goal for 2022: to have 850 books in the Martin Center’s collection. Thanks to our generous readers and donors, we’re almost there. As of today, we have 826 books. That’s almost 80 more than we had last year at this time. (You can view our catalog here.)...

    Christian Post ^ | 12/22/22 | Samantha Kamman
    An organization of Christian mothers that regularly launches campaigns against questionable content is calling on American Girl to discontinue its distribution of a book that promotes puberty blockers for girls questioning their gender identity. The conservative activist group One Million Moms has launched a pressure campaign urging the doll company to discontinue selling the book A Smart Girl's Guide: Body Image and encourages people to stop purchasing from American Girl or its parent company, Mattel. One Million Moms highlights how the book seemingly directs girls to organizations that will help them transition if the adults in their lives don't support...

  • A Christian Carol-- The Subtle Christianity of Charles Dickens

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/20/22 | William Kevin Stoos
    Some say that Dickens is the father of the modern Christmas celebration—a tradition that was disappearing at the time he wrote the story. His portrayal of a Victorian snow-filled holiday celebrated with wassail, caroling, and families gathered around the table to eat the Christmas goose, perpetuated the secular Christmas celebration, which many Americans now enjoy. Yet, it was far more than a holiday tale. A Christmas Carol was a powerful, almost subliminal, message of Christian values and morality—though Jesus, God and the New Testament are barely alluded to in the story. How many readers knew that Dickens was an unconventional...
