Whatever the many issues involved in the Newtown, CT, murders, one of the issues does not seem to be race.  A white shooter who, based on current accounts, had serious mental illness and personality disorders, killed his white mother to get her lawfully licensed guns, in order to kill almost entirely white…

From LukeHandCool, another sign at the New Roads School in Santa Monica, CA: News item: Lefty school educators endorse Simpson-Butkus Plan. More Filling! … Tastes Great! More Revenue … If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that’s a euphemism for higher taxes. Less Waste … If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they’re…

In director Quentin Tarantino’s soon-to-open film Django Unchained, Jamie Foxx plays an escaped slave on a murderous rampage against his former tormentors and, if I read the advance press correctly, pretty much any white someone deems deserving of a uniquely Tarantinoesque death.  It sounds like the black version of Tarantino’s last…

I told you yesterday that the remedies suggested in response to the Newtown, CT, shooting would be all about the politics. Demands for bans on assault weapons in a shooting that did not involve an assault weapon [see update], or for greater gun control laws in response to a shooting in a state with gun control…

The problem is not the 1967 borders, never was, never will be.  The problem is that the Palestinians do not want to give up “one inch.” A return to the 1967 borders merely would get the Palestinians closer to that last inch. Via Times of Israel, New group unites young Palestinians against Israel (emphasis…

I’ve been out of pocket pretty much since the first sketchy reports this morning about a possible school shooting.  A meeting, a luncheon and then 6 hours in the car. The car ride was enlightening because I followed the details of the Connecticut school shooting exclusively by listening to the radio. As in…

I’m glad to be back stateside after returning this week from a trip to Colombia where I rediscovered a romance with the entrepreneurial spirit and free market, values which appear to be alive and well in Cartagena and elsewhere in the country.

The likely downturn in the job situation next year will be blamed on Republican supposed intransigence on raising taxes, even though the exact opposite is true. What will get papered over is the impact of Obamacare. Now that Obamacare taxes are coming into play, the effect already is being felt, Medical companies brace…

This is from the “you can’t make this stuff up” category. Fox2 Detroit (via Riehl World News) identifies the person who famously shouted various expletives during the attack on the Americans For Prosperity tent (but did not himself engage in any violence): The demonstration was so far from dull. There was quite a commotion,…
