Lew Rockwell drinks the left’s Koolaid

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

According to

the protesters were peaceful, the only ones acting out with petty violence being loudly chastised by the crowd. The most belligerent participants by far were law enforcers, who responded to thrown bottles and civil disobedience with tear gas and rubber bullets.


And now to manufacture a Kent State Moment

But alas, no protestor is volunteering to die, and no cop is volunteering to be the designated bad guy. (more…)

Herman Cain sticks it to political correctness

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

At 41 seconds into the ad, the speaker says:  “We can do this, we can take this country back”, and takes a drag on a cigarette.

So who are we taking it back from? 

We are taking it back from the scolds and self righteous naggers.


The lesson of Gaddafi

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The brutal death of Gaddafi teachers all rulers a lesson:  Emulate Syria, Iran, and Turkey.  Obstinately continue to do bad things to Americans, do not give in.  Do not imitate Gaddafi, who stopped doing terrorism, backed off and went on his best behavior after Ronald Reagan killed various members of Gaddafi’s family.  Still less should you emulate Egypt, and be an American ally.

More astroturf riots in Greece.

At one minute fifty seconds in this you tube video, a man carrying a burning molotov cocktail rushes up to police. They don’t react. He hurls it onto the ground, not at them, but right in front of himself. There is a huge spectacular whoosh as burning petrol sprays everywhere. They react only slightly. He runs away. They don’t chase him.

They act as if they knew in advance that a man was going to come rushing at them and hurl a molotov cocktail, not at them, but right in front of himself.

At forty seven seconds in this video a molotov hits right behind a cop. He does not turn around. He acts as if he knew in advance the molotov is coming and will land a short but safe distance from him.

You are supposed to believe that unless the Greek government gets more money to allieviate the condition of the oppressed masses, there will be communist revolution, but it is all fake and staged. (more…)

Left political singularity

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

The French Red Terror, the Soviet Great Terror, the Cambodian autogenocide, and many others were all examples of what I call left political singularities.

Left wing repression tends to make things lefter, which tends to worsen left wing repression, which makes things even lefter, which …   The process only stops when the latest despot starts to realize he is not left enough, he is being outflanked on the left, is going to be overthrown by those even lefter than himself, and promptly gets rid of everyone important who is even lefter than he is.

Fun hate fact about the bell curve

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Today’s hate fact is hyperexponential decay.

The normal survival function (the number of cases in a normal distribution that are more than x, one minus the cumulative distribution) approaches zero as x increases hyperexponentially, which is to say, very fast. This often makes it possible, under many common circumstances, to draw conclusions about individual cases, to infer a particular person’s character and or ability from his race or sex, and to infer a particular individual’s race or sex from his ability or character, to draw conclusions about particular identifiable people from average racial characteristics.

Government hires protestors to demand more government

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Powerline found an interesting job advertisement in Craigslist:

Under the job category “new york craigslist > brooklyn > jobs > government jobs”, people looking for a government job are invited to: “ FIGHT TO HOLD WALL STREET ACCOUNTABLE NOW! MAKE A DIFFERENCE! GET PAID!

I knew they were getting paid to protest, but until now there was some deniability – students were being turned out to protest by their professors, employees of government unions were being turned out to protest by their union bosses, ngo employees were being turned out by ngo bosses, rather than a flat out overt offer to get paid to show up and protest.

The cause of the decline

Lately there as been a lot of concern about the increasingly visible decline of the west, notably Peter Thiel on “The  End of the Future”: (more…)

Short summary of “Fast and Furious”

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Many blogs have covered all this for a long time, in great depth, among them Human Events.  I am not going to do so, but I need to mention such an important event, if only for my own records: (more…)
