Governor Lee's recent vote to remove the bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest from the Tennessee State Capitol is yet more proof of the old adage that there is a not a dime's worth of difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties. I for one contend that this is true in part because the two parties… Continue reading Death to the GOP! Or not.
Progressives today have put patriotic Southerners in sort of a propaganda headlock. Because of slavery, our resistance to Civil Rights, the march of time, and the average American's shocking ignorance of American history, they have been able to paint the American Civil War, our heritage, and our Confederate flag as wholly racist, and so far… Continue reading The Civil War was about Slavery and Roe v. Wade
It should be obvious that democracy's usefulness is limited, and it should be equally obvious that not everyone should vote on any given issue. For example, a twelve-month-old baby may be able to express his likes and dislikes, but I wonder how a daycare worker looking after half a dozen one-year-olds could apply the democratic… Continue reading Why We Dont Allow Kindergarteners to Vote
Conservatives have every reason to be depressed. Like the Armenians, we too were beaten last November and beaten badly. But I think it is better to compare us to the Russians in the fall of 1941 or our own ancestors on the 8th of December of the same year. The Germans and Japanese seemed unstoppable,… Continue reading Looking at the Bright Side
Several posts ago I posited that the second most consequential result of the coup in 2020 will be the great awakening of the Right. A friend of mine asked me where I saw the signs of this. This is a good question and I’ve been stewing on it. In a nutshell, I view what is… Continue reading Signs of a great awakening on the Right are everywhere.

Have it your way at Burger King! 🎶 Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts! 🎶… Continue reading Ace is the place with the helpful hardware… androgynoid!
It has been famously said that there is nothing new under the sun. It was true thousands of years ago, and if the intervening years are any indication of the future, it will be true thousands of years from now. It is also true that there are certainly new things under the sun, such as… Continue reading Human nature does not change, thus history does not end. This fight ain’t over.
The basis of all things human is our human nature, and we cannot escape it any more than the dog can escape his, not that it would ever occur to a dog to try. But unlike a dog's nature, our nature does allow us to consider and imagine anything whatsoever. We can contemplate our very… Continue reading We Must Build Our Society on a Foundation of Common Sense, Not Ideas
Like habits, institutional power is hard to break. Power by its nature is hard to take from the possessor as he will naturally use it to retain it. Institutional power is especially hard to take because not only will institutions defend themselves, their power is granted by the collective acceptance and habits of the people… Continue reading Institutional Power vs. the Right
We Americans have always assumed a few things about other Americans, at least since that great unifying moment after our victory in WWII. We assumed that we all agree that this is the Home of the Brave, Land of the Free, and that In God We Trust. We all believed in The American Dream, the… Continue reading Metamorphosis: How the Right now perceives the Left
