Ithaca, NY, loves it some Democratic Socialism of the Bernie Sanders type.

Ithaca is the second Most Pro-Sanders Zip Code in the nation, just behind the Mission District of San Francisco.

Here are the directions to my house, circa November 2008:

You may recall the name Janna Jihad.

Janna is a member of the Tamimi clan from Nabi Saleh. Among the more infamous Tamimi members is Ahlam Tamimi, the woman who organized the Sbarro Pizza restaurant suicide bombing in 2001, and then broke out with a huge smile when she learned that more...

It doesn’t sound quite as good as “on the cover of The Rolling Stone.”

A reader emailed me a photo of a NY Times front page story today in which I am quoted.

Thing is, the Times article suggests I opposed the proposal:

A secretly-conservative Ithaca reader forwarded this to me.

She used to be a raging liberal until she started reading Legal Insurrection. From what I hear, the Ithaca Common Council is about to ban Liberal Conversion Therapy, so I don’t know how many more people I can rescue.

She sent it because misery...

I’ll never forget my one and only visit to a heroin shooting gallery.

Bumper Sticker - Ithaca - Tuck Frump close up

Remember the 2008 directions to my home in Ithaca?

To live in Ithaca is to live in a city alive with anti-Bush, anti-war protest. I often joke that the directions to my house in Ithaca read as follows: Take a right at the fifth Obama sign, a left at the third “Impeach Bush” placard, bear right at the “Support Our Troops, End the War” poster, and we are the house just after the “There’s a Village in Texas Missing its Idiot” banner.

This is shaping up as a potentially YUUUUGE bumper sticker season in Ithaca.

Particularly if Trump is the nominee. While I’m not for Trump, I have to admit it would be a guilty pleasure to watch Ithaca progressives running through the streets pulling at their hair and screaming about End Times. Half the town would flee to Canada.

Saw this yesterday morning in Ithaca. Typical Ithaca (dim) wit.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been targeting American Reggae musician Matisyahu because he is Jewish and refuses to denounce Israel.

In the summer of 2015 an international firestorm of controversy erupted after BDS succeeded in getting Matisyahu banned at the Spanish Rototom Reggae festival. The ban was reversed only...

Last summer, BDS managed to get Matisyahu banned from the Spanish Rototom Reggae Festival after he refused to sign a statement renouncing and denouncing Israel. Matisyahu, believed to be the only Jewish...
