We have a major political party, the world’s oldest, the Democrat Party, has decided to throw its lot in with the voters and ignore the taxpayers. It’s not a totally stupid short-to-medium-term policy, although ultimately it leads to Venezuela, Greece, and Detroit. The DiploMad 2.0

Deconstructing Jordan Peterson I want everyone to stop using the word “gender” for anything other than masculine and feminine nouns. I am male. I am of the male sex. I am not of the male gender. You do not have choice in participating in your sexual identity, contrary to all fashionable nonsense of the era. “Gender” is akin to the Marxist use of the word “exploitation”.

What they really want is not to be whistled at and catcalled by unattractive guys. In other words, they want a world where they can flirt and sexually banter with alpha male sports stars and multi-millionaires, but the lowly office geek who dares ask any of them out on a date will feel the full force of the law landing on them.” The Morning Rant

“EMP is a loony idea. Once an enemy uses a nuclear weapon—for any reason—it crosses the nuclear threshold and invites a nuclear response. U.S. military commanders would not say ‘Well, it was only an airburst. We should just respond in kind.’ They would answer with an overwhelming, devastating nuclear counter attack. And our nuclear weapons and command and control are designed to operate in a nuclear war environment, not just some puny EMP blast.” Expert: EMP Weapons Are a “Loony Idea” | The National Interest Blog
