I just traded in my older device on the latest version of the iPod Touch (iPhone without the phone), because Safari kept crashing and I couldn’t use it at all. I now have a new one, and Safari works well, so I want to be able to read Ricochet on my new iPod. What advice […]

I love Ricochet, I’m very happy with my membership, but I find myself spending less and less time on a PC. This really limits how active I am Ricochet. The website works fairly well on a mobile device, which is nice, but an App would be so much better and more accessible. Has Ricochet ever […]

There’s a big security vulnerability that was found yesterday that affects lots of popular websites, including Ricochet, which resulted in private information like passwords being leaked all over the internet. Cloudfare is a service that many websites use to help them serve content to a large number of users. Part of what it does is cache […]

No fights are as bitter as family fights, and I think we have been through one. Family fights are not about facts, but feelings, not about things, but wounds. I have heard one therapist say, “If it weren’t for families, I would not have any clients”. So families hurt each other more than enemies usually […]

Ancient Israel gave the world the idea of hope. We are here because God created us in love, and through love we discover the meaning and purpose of life. Tragic cultures eventually disintegrate and die. Lacking any sense of ultimate meaning, they lose the moral beliefs and habits on which continuity depends. They sacrifice happiness […]

LBack when the levels of membership were created, one of the things for the Reagan level was an annual dinner in DC. The first year of these, I could not afford Thatcher, let along Reagan. I was a normal member that year, and looked on like Dan Aykroyd in Trading Places (:45 mark) More

Trashing Kevin Williamson

 

This post is to criticize Kevin Williamson for a recent column at National Review.

There was a previous post that was undertaken by another Ricochet member, in which he criticized Kevin Williamson for the same column. That post became to heated with emotional responses and unhelpful rhetoric. Factiousness emerged. Hopefully we can do better and consider the column on its merits at this post. The column is deserving of criticism.

A Conversation with Mollie Hemingway

 

Ricochet’s own Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor at the Federalist, joins us at Whiskey Politics on the Weekly Standard cruise to discuss the Democrats post-election freak out, political correctness, academia, the current state of the media, polling, and fake news. Mollie suggests what the Trump administration should focus on in the first 100 days and answers the most asked question from Ricochet members.

I got the title from several years of listening to Mrs. D.’s Kindergarteners do their show and tell routine at the end of the day when I sub for them. Only the class “president” for the day gets to show the item, and students must first try to guess what it is based on the initial […]

So I went to the Internet Archive (which is cool) to see how Ricochet has changed. And wayback in 2010, when it began, Ricochet had the contributors shown on the left (see note 1). I put the 2016 still active contributors on the right for comparison. I grayed contributor photos who have not posted or […]

At the height of the election a little over a week ago, it seemed like there was a new post every few minutes. It seemed that every time I’d check the Member Feed, a post I’d seen at the top of the page just minutes ago was nowhere to be seen on the first page. […]

Ricochet: In Appreciation

 

This website, this community has changed my life. Personally, Ricochet has given me a creative outlet, but it has also exposed me to an incredibly talented and broad range of ways of thinking in everything from politics to religion, science to engineering. I know that my writing – my thinking – is better for it. Posting here is always intellectually challenging, and I am grateful to you all for the result.

Professionally, it is no secret among the RICOe that my company has benefited enormously from the talent and experience and knowhow found here. I think I work for at least a dozen shareholders whom I met on Ricochet, and in turn at least half a dozen work at least part-time on our megalomaniacal little venture. Indeed, when speaking to a potential new addition recently, I had to admit that he starts with a strike against him, since we did not meet him on Ricochet. And then he listened in on an internal engineering meeting, and this very highly qualified and capable individual came away highly impressed with the quality of our mostly-Ricochet team.

Circumstances often beget creation, and so it is with this short post (my first ever) on gratitude. The events of the last months – and especially this week – virtually compel me to offer my thanks for a very worthy, uniquely deserving group. You. More

Trump is a Genius

 

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for November 9, 2016 it’s the “Trump is a Genius” edition of the podcast. We’ll discuss the new reality of November 9, 2016. We’ve been wondering what this day was going to be like for *ever*. And it turns out to be better than we could possibly have imagined it! Not only did Trump win, but the sheer energy of the victory carried along almost all of his detractors on the right – at least temporarily – like a tsunami…a temporary tsunami?

We will discuss the change in the electorate that brought this about. Are the blue collar, Reagan Democrat, rust belt “leftover” voters a permanent feature of the new Republican coalition? Are Democrats in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – what Michael Moore called the “Brexit states,” destined to be a vanishing breed just as Democrats in the South have vanished?

I was a lurker/participant in last night’s live chat. I can honestly say I have never had a more fun election night in all the 44 years I have been eligible to vote. The comments were coming so thick and fast, it was a blur. People were reporting on conditions in their areas, and on […]
