Goodbye to the National Review

I removed the link for two reasons:

a) NR is vehemently anti-Trump

b) They don’t like ad blockers.

Hate to break it to NR, your content is available elsewhere on the internet within hours if not, indeed, minutes. Bye-bye.

Independence Day!

I’m a vet. Took the oath then. Took it again when hired in a government job. Taken the same oath twice. Never been relieved of said oath. To misquote Thomas Paine, my job is to protect my country from my government. That’s why the oath is to the Constitution, not the government.

Diversity Sucks

“It’s the fundamental defect of all egalitarian ideologies. The diversity advocates assume that all people are the same, when they are clearly not the same. Thousands of generations of evolution have hard wired humans to seek out those who are most like them. Trust is highest with our kin. Social structure like churches, and civic communities are built on trust. Throw a bunch of strangers from different tribes together and they are not going to build a community.”

Book Review: Albion’s Seed | Slate Star Codex

“Albion’s Seed by David Fischer is a history professor’s nine-hundred-page treatise on patterns of early immigration to the Eastern United States. It’s not light reading and not…”

The review is full of interesting facts I assume are pulled from ‘Albion’s Seed’. One example:

“Virginian cavalier speech patterns sound a lot like modern African-American dialects. It doesn’t take much imagination to figure out why, but it’s strange to think of a 17th century British lord speaking what a modern ear would clearly recognize as Ebonics.”

Kurt Schlichter – Liberals Want To Break You By Forcing You To Lie

“Look, we feel terrible about your very real feelings that you aren’t the sex you are, and we don’t want to add to your pain, but the truth is the truth and we are not cruel or terrible or inaccurate when we refuse to pretend a delusion is reality. You can dope yourself with chemicals and submit to surgical mutilation, but there are things called chromosomes and they make the call.”
