Daniel H on Pedagogical Value Of Communist Countries. Alright, the embargo is lifted (nobody ever discusses the fact that the rest of the world is perfectly free to trade with Cuba if they want to, but they don't want to, because Cuba produces nothing of value, except cheap prostitutes), how is Cuba going to pay for anything? Does

Rev. Right on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. destructure: "Where do legislators and bureaucrats derive the authority to do that?" By the assertion of raw power, not by any legal authority. In the former Constitutional Republic, the State was bound to serve the interests of the Nation. Of course the elites got their way, but they were restrained
James Bowery on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. The elites think its intraracial class warfare -- that's why they do it. The thing is, they're surrounding themselves with multiracial toadies and sycohants that are moving in the for the kill, generation by generation. The whole thing looks like dominant extended phenotypes expressed in the behavior of the more
destructure on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. Government imposed integration is no more justified than government imposed segregation. Both use racial discrimination to violate individuals. Where do legislators and bureaucrats derive the authority to do that? Meanwhile self-righteous elitists use the exclusivity afforded by wealth to exempt themselves from the abusive policies they impose on others.
WJ on Only The Biggest Private Jets Are Selling. As the price of oil goes down, watch as the number of used private jets for sale goes up - most of them coming from the Arab world and other regions whose main export is petroleum.
WJ on Gruberism: Politics Is More About Manipulation Than Conversation. "People on the political Left who offer an opinion on the subject want universal suffrage, for all to have the vote. Yet they treat the lower classes as tools to manipulate to achieve elite goals. Maybe they like that the lower classes are easier to deceive?" Read the history of

WJ on Euro Zone Bad For Less Developed Economies. "I'd have thought it was incontrovertible that the EU has been great for Europe. I include Greece, Spain and Portugal in that." WTF? You think that 25% unemployment rates are great for Spain and Greece? That 13% unemployment rates are great for Italy and Portugal? You think that EU-imposed open
WJ on Euro Zone Bad For Less Developed Economies. The EU is bad because membership in it increases the strength of the neighborhood bully, and that is a guarantee that the EU will bully you. Who is the EU bullying? The EU isn't bullying China, it's bullying its own members, plus those foolish enough to have close relations with
WJ on Gigamansions: Billionaires Squeezing Out Millionaires. What we are doing is importing people with hundreds of billions of dollars, much of which has been earned via corruption. It's exactly what happened to London, pricing the natives out of their own country as the foreigners, esp. Russian oligarchs, took over. You think the people who earned it
WJ on British Secular Schools Going Islamic. "This could be stopped and reversed if our leaders weren't such fools." Not fools. They are traitors. Or cowards. Or just normal, greedy politicians more interested in doing anything to boost their careers than in actually serving the public.
WJ on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. "If diversity is such a great thing for everyone, why do white parents do everything in their power to flee it?" And why does the government go to such great lengths to force it upon us, and to brainwash us into accepting it? And why do those elite who force
I HATE HONDAS on Locking A Car With A Short Horn Blast Is Rude And Obnoxious. A big FU to the all the inconsiderate Honda-driving horn-lockers! Hey you inconsiderate morons, the *first* press of the button that flashes your lights completely secures (locks and alarm) your vehicle. Every obnoxious press after that just tells the world what an inconsiderate, selfish human being you are.
painlord2k on British Secular Schools Going Islamic. The only real problem is the government and its ability to print (fiat) money and so borrow at cheap rates. With this ability come the ability to pay electors and pay themselves without the taxpayers understanding what is happening. This is because the welfare state enlarged so much during the
Rev. Right on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. If diversity is such a great thing for everyone, why do white parents do everything in their power to flee it?
Dan on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. "In 2013, the parties redefined the standard for diversity, allowing Asian, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders to count toward the 25 percent "white enrollment" threshold." Actually it makes a lot of sense, if the left is HBD aware, which it totally is (when it is
Jim on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. The left says that all the myriad problems of blacks are due to white racism. If true them one would think that the fewer whites around the better off blacks wuold be. But then the left blames whites for "white flight" harming blacks. Apparently the only thing worst for blacks
bob sykes on The American Left Decided To Stop Making Sense. "Out of Africa" was a speciation event.
Longuyland on Gigamansions: Billionaires Squeezing Out Millionaires. Use some jargon-like buzz phrases: "Stop importing poverty!" "Stop importing inequality!"
Jim on British Secular Schools Going Islamic. Yes it's weird. The Romans were overrun militarily by barbaric Germans. The Germans were militarily stronger but even they recognized the superiority of Roman civilization to their own cultures. In a straightforward military contest between the West and the Islamic Middle East the latter wouldn't have a chance. Little Israel
Mike Street Station on British Secular Schools Going Islamic. What went wrong is that there seems to be a self destructive vein running deep in Western Culture. If there are historical antecedents to this kind of cultural suicide I'm not aware of it. Other collapsing civilizations just got weaker, I don't think they actively tried to slit their own
vasu on Finnish Schools Have Elephant In The Room. According to this international measure all we understand is that the standardization of the education is to be done in every countries. The proper classes and the teachers Birchmeier backpack sprayer will only help the students to learn to an extent.
James Bowery on British Secular Schools Going Islamic. In the descriptive phrase of Charles Murray, it was a human accomplishment.
Wolf-Dog on Moderate Opposition Collapsing In Syria. The moderate opposition cannot win against the fundamentalists because the latter believe in afterlife privileges that are tantamount to immortality in exchange for human sacrifice (of the former). When the prize is so valuable, the latter would fight better than the former.
Wolf-Dog on Gigamansions: Billionaires Squeezing Out Millionaires. There are two reasons the American middle class is shrinking: 1) The high trade deficit of the US is making middle class jobs scarce, and salaries are going down faster than the prices of imported goods that elites used to claim that this is intended to benefit the middle class.
Stephen on Moderate Opposition Collapsing In Syria. I'd have thought that Assad is clearly the secular moderate in Syria. We even fought side-by-side during the first gulf war. Funny how he's suddenly deemed evil and we're doing our damnedest to replace him with crazies. It's almost as if our leaders are lying about their motives and the
Mike Street Station on Moderate Opposition Collapsing In Syria. It's hard to believe that it's still conventional wisdom that the whole world is going to embrace Liberal Western style democracy. It made since to believe that during the cold war, but that's decades in the past. There has been no evidence for that since after the fall of communism.
Jim on Moderate Opposition Collapsing In Syria. US foreign policy in the Middle East can be best described as "bat-shit crazy".
AMac on Moderate Opposition Collapsing In Syria. Reporter Liz Sly is naive. She could get up to speed by reading back posts of The Long War Journal, which for years has discussed what the "moderate opposition" leaders say in (Arabic) interviews, and which other groups they have allied with and shared U.S. weaponry with -- al Qaeda
albatross on How To Make Jihad Work For Western Countries. There is a huge difference, though. Prison labor isn't a huge font of wealth--I think most of the profit of the private prison companies comes from the taxpayers paying to keep the prisoners locked up. By contrast, slavery was a critical part of the South's economy before the civil war--it
James Bowery on How To Make Jihad Work For Western Countries. Bloomberg acknowledges the logic of separation while clearly preferring that the dividing lines remain bipolar, Republican vs Democrat, and smearing the Republican pole as essentially on the side of slavery. The thing is, while one can argue that Republican attitudes toward immigration and wages are aligned with slavery, the tendency
Toddy Cat on How To Make Jihad Work For Western Countries. That is an argument for breaking up the US along ideological, religious and racial lines." You say that like it's a bad thing. That's what is going to be our salvation, all of us. The alternative doesn't bear thinking about.
James Bowery on How To Make Jihad Work For Western Countries. "I think people who share common values should live together in a society that fully embodies their preferences." That is an argument for returning to the US Constitution's original intent except within very restricted areas, such as preventing people from emigrating from a State (ie: the 13th amendment). It is
Toddy Cat on Vietnamization Not Working In Afghanistan. Actually, comparing what's going to happen in Kabul is an insult to the ARVN/South Vietnamese, some of whom fought heroically against the Communists, until the Leftists in Congress cut off their arms supplies. I'll be really surprised if the ANA does nearly as well...
bob sykes on How To Make Jihad Work For Western Countries. "I think people who share common values should live together in a society that fully embodies their preferences." That is an argument for breaking up the US along ideological, religious and racial lines.
Stephen on How To Make Jihad Work For Western Countries. Why limit it to particular flavour-of-the-month terrorists and particular flavour-of-the-decade regions? Perhaps just have a zero tolerance rule: If you fight overseas in a para-military organisation or serve in a foreign military, then that act constitutes a formal decision by you to renounce your citizenship. Been nice knowing ya. This

Galoot on 4 Right Leaning States Wisely Raise Minimum Wage. If you can't get a job anyway the minimum wage might as well be infinite.
hyperpessimist on Federal National Security Workers Think Elected Officials Clueless. The Creep State is hard to defy. Breivik probably allowed himself to be captured because he wanted to see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
