5-year-old’s take on Princess Leia’s metal bikini would make feminists fume

Adorably hilarious, this father-daughter conversation fantastically illustrates how behavior is learned. Modern “feminism” scoffs at the “sexual objectification” of Princess Leia, all the while, drooling over shirtless pictures of Ryan Gosling (because somehow that’s different). Flipping through a Star Wars book, this little girl found Princess Leia’s prison garb to be quite fabulous…

The last year I remember noticing as a huge transition was 2000. We had entered science fiction territory, and 2001 was similar because of the Stanley Kubrick film. But after that it’s all been a blur. How did it pass so quickly? That’s a cliche, but there’s no question that as you…

Back in February, then-gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis attempted to rock the boat by claiming that she supported Texas’ open carry movement.Her opponent Greg Abbott, an already-beloved-by-most Attorney General and popular favorite to win the election, already supported the measure, so perhaps at the time it seemed like a savvy move.

NY Times 2015: Keep blaming Israel, ignore Palestinian rejectionism

Posted by

Today the New York Times, predictably, blamed Israel for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ efforts to internationalize the Palestinians conflict with Israel. According to the Times, it is Israel’s fault that Abbas attempted to get the United Nations Security Council to impose an agreement on Israel and, failing that,…

The problem with the “peace negotiations” that failed numerous times over the years is that the Palestinians cling to the hope that international organizations — primarily the United Nations and its branches — will force Israel into concessions that harm Israel’s security, and will pave the way not for a lasting…

The label “Sick Man of Europe” has been awarded to many a European nation and empire since it was first used to describe the decrepit Ottoman Empire in the mid-19th century. Today, it seems the entirety of Europe, save the United Kingdom and Switzerland, is worthy of the “sick man” title. The Eurozone…
