There are three great crimes in the South: murder, being rude, and putting yourself forward. The first will get you hung, the latter two will leave you ostracised and friendless. I haven't murdered anyone yet and I am as friendly as can be. I am however going to violate the third by daring to put… Continue reading About Look Away, and My View on the Black Man…
What the old yet owe the young
Ok, do we have too many people or not enough? Some say too many and that we need to shrink the population. This was the thinking of the Chinese Communist Party when back in 1980 it implemented its one-child policy. Others say not enough and will point to China's one-child policy as a case in… Continue reading What the old yet owe the young
The Left in sheep’s clothing
Were I to meet Satan face to face my assumption is that he would be dressed to the nines and his manners perfect. Forgive my sexism but I do assume that he would take the form of a man. But if he, she, or it were to assume the form of a woman, I assume… Continue reading The Left in sheep’s clothing
In the South’s countryside, small towns, and little cities, white and black folks get along swimmingly
I follow a Youtube cinema critic, a foul-mouthed Scotsman with a huge following, who goes by the name The Critical Drinker. I find his commentary concise, witty, and thoughtful. Along with Rotten Tomatoes and other sources, he has saved me a lot of time and brain damage by helping me sift the muck of Hollywood… Continue reading In the South’s countryside, small towns, and little cities, white and black folks get along swimmingly
We the Media find you guilty! Now for the trial.
In my effort to know what happened I settled on and entered into my search engine Memphis police kill Tyre Nichols. I was determined to read the first ten articles but skimmed the last four which more or less repeated the first six. Headlines included... Tyre Nichols: Memphis police beat man like 'human piñata' Tyre… Continue reading We the Media find you guilty! Now for the trial.
Hey! What cops do in the privacy of their squad car is nobody’s business!
Well, the good people of La Vergne Tennessee are a wee bit red-faced these days after a scandal broke recently that has focused the eyes of the news-watching world upon their little corner of Tennessee heaven. Namely, a female cop engaging in illicit and somewhat unrestrained sexcapades with six of her male colleagues. Caligula would… Continue reading Hey! What cops do in the privacy of their squad car is nobody’s business!
Why the American Left hates today’s Russia
At the 80,000 foot level, in regards to Russia, I believe that what the secular West fears most is a resurgent Russia rooted in its traditions, history, and most especially Orthodox Christianity. The secular West hates the same trend that is happening in Eastern Europe generally, such as the revitalisation of the Catholic church in… Continue reading Why the American Left hates today’s Russia
The show must go on! Men.
You remember the old saying, "The show must go on!" Unless you are a student of the history of theatre or a trivia junkie you'll not likely know the origin of the expression, but you nonetheless understand it has something to do with theatre. You also understand its broader meaning. That is, in the face… Continue reading The show must go on! Men.
It takes a tribe
I heard a sermon recently where the preacher reminded his congregation that we live in a post-industrial world where the extended family has lost much of its practical relevance and necessity. That until recently and stretching back into the mist of time we humans lived in what may be thought of as extended families, tight… Continue reading It takes a tribe
It’s your culture, not your skin colour
Imagine the Smiths, a family somewhere in the South wherever football is loved, which is pretty much everywhere. These Smiths (they can be black or white) are a football family through and through, the women being every bit as enthusiastic about the sport as the men. From high school, to college, to the pros, this family follows… Continue reading It’s your culture, not your skin colour
Think twice before getting married today
We have a human nature, unchanging and unchangeable, and marriage is born of this human nature. Marriage is not a social construction. It is within the respective natures of man and woman to be drawn to each other to form a long-term, mutually supportive union, that is recognised by their tribe. This union is the… Continue reading Think twice before getting married today
