And yes, that’s a high school drama teacher emoting at him. More
Attention: Those of you who’ve been following the consultant class here on Ricochet: This morning I started the day with the great John Oakley on Toronto’s AM640. In light of the latest revelations re Donald Trump – he raped at least one of his wives!!! his kids have killed and grilled every single animal on the […]
This past weekend, I did a pop-culture post based on a game Collider uses on its website called “Save or Kill.” The premise is that you are presented with two icons, both threatened with being wiped from existence forever, and must choose which of the two to save; you cannot save both. The game works best when you really love both icons, so it becomes a real Sophie’s Choice.
That first post didn’t get as many responses as I’d hoped — though my thanks to those who did participate, and there’s still time to jump in! — so I’m tailoring the game in this post with options better-suited to the interests of the Ricochetti.More
But here’s the funny and consequential thing. Trump is supposed to be the narcissist blowhard celebrity candidate: He’s a guy famous for erecting aesthetically revolting buildings with his “brand” plastered all over them, for arm-candy brides, for beauty contests and reality shows. The other fellows are sober, serious senators and governors. And yet Trump is […]
After playing with the finger paint in my safe room this morning to prepare myself, I ventured to steynonline to read the latest from Mark Steyn. To my delight, I saw that Steyn’s most recent piece references the post Jerry Seinfeld and the Progressive Comedy Pause on Ricochet by our favorite west coast – does […]
Illness wakes me most mornings around 3 or 3:30. I tend to read, catch up on business or school work, or to use my tablet to surf the Web. More
As many of you probably know, Mark Steyn, is in the free speech fight of his life and we all should help him if we are able (gift certificates available for purchase here). Here is my thought. Let’s help Mark and push for another conversation with Mark and the All Stars on the Ricochet podcast. […]
The following three paragraphs are taken from this Jan. 27, ’14 article in The New Yorker by David Remnick: The second Inaugural Address was the most liberal since the nineteen-sixties. Obama pledged to take ambitious action on climate change, immigration, gun control, voting rights, infrastructure, tax reform. He warned of a nation at “perpetual war.” […]
Last winter, after Mark Steyn quit National Review, he and his fans* alleged that National Review’s managing editor, Jason Steorts, had attempted to censor** his writing. This was absurd on the face of it, since the piece which Steorts supposedly attempted to censor was…published. And remains published. And is accessible to this day on nationalreview.com. […]
Ricochet members may enjoy my new podcast interview with Mark Steyn, who talks about the newly updated edition of his anthology of celebrity and political obits, Mark Steyn’s Passing Parade, plus where things stand with Michael Mann’s lawsuit, and why he left National Review in December. Plus some thoughts on how England’s nationalized socialism (heh) led to its disastrous decline in the 1970s, and how it foreshadowed the Obama era.

Condoleeza Rice has withdrawn from the Rutgers commencement. Okay, now I’m mad. Coming after the Brendan Eich resignation, we seem to be on a streak: left-wingers protest, an organization goes weak in the knees, and a conservative does the “gracious” thing by withdrawing. More
I’ve made it to the big times, now, baby. Amy Schley suggests I “should wear that like a badge of pride, like Dogberry when he was called an ass. ‘Forget not, masters, that I am a bitch.’ ” And I shall. FYI, here’s Steyn’s post that I was responding about: http://www.steynonline.com/6184/oh-wont-you-stay-ay-ay-just-a-little-bit-longer More
