Dennis Miller, Ricochet Fan

 

The great Dennis Miller mentioned your humble site on his radio show today:

Of course, this audio is just a pretext for a certain Ricochet editor to boast that he made one of his comedic idols laugh. Said editor even posted this story under the anonymous Ricochet Editor account to ensure he didn’t come off as arrogant and self-serving.

Ricochet Membership: Collateral Advantages

 

The unexpected consequences of Ricochet membership are awesome and life changing. Of course your results may be different from mine but membership is what you make it. Fake John Galt and several others have recently asked about renewing their memberships, and it made me think about why I hang out so much around here with all of the cool kids.

A non-member will never have the opportunities to interact or appreciate the wonderfulness of the Ricochetti. Here is a short list of the incredible collateral advantages of membership:

How about we start a thread going, promote to Main Feed, and every Ricochet member add a comment stating their support for the State of Israel, and all its brave people. One comment per member, and see if we can get the number of comments higher than the PIT thread. I’ll go first. I stand […]

The Cruel Marketplace

 

The great thing about a marketplace is, it always tells you when you’re missing the mark.

Ricochet, for instance: we know we’re providing a useful and valuable service, but we also know we need to do better. Our customers — you — tell us that. When we launched the new site, memberships plummeted. When we got our act together, they picked up steam. We’re now growing about as fast as we were before the Great Migration.

Over the past few months some of Ricochet’s best authors have made themselves scarce. Perhaps it’s general busyness in life, perhaps it’s 2.0 revulsion, perhaps it’s the joy of summer, perhaps it’s writer’s block. Whatever it is, I for one want all of the great Ricochet authors to keep posting their fantastic content to the […]

This May Have Been My Favorite Ricochet Meet-Up So Far

 

shutterstock_167824913At ten minutes before seven o’clock the other morning, as I was grunting and groaning in a weight room here in Palo Alto, a lovely gentleman walked over to introduce himself — and to let me know that he was a Ricochet member.

Thanks, Shelton Ehrlich. You and I were the only two Ricochet members in the place, the only two over the age of 25 — and the only two, I feel certain, who, even after dragging ourselves there at such an hour, would rather have talked politics than lifted dumbbells.

Right now, I’m involved in two separate discussions with Ricochet members about Phil Robertson’s upcoming conference speech to Republicans. Only one of those discussions is happening on Ricochet. The other is happening on Facebook. Through Facebook, I’m still connected to a few former Ricochet members and contributors. It doesn’t much matter to me where we […]

Sen. Ted Cruz: Ricochet Fan

 

I’m wrapping up a week in Washington, D.C., where I attended an excellent Future of Media conference sponsored by the Franklin Center and the Heritage Foundation. Tuesday night featured the third annual Andrew Breitbart Awards, which honored citizen journalists and was keynoted by Greg Gutfeld (who killed it, of course). As Wednesday’s sessions wrapped up, the Republican National Committee offered about a dozen of us the chance to meet Sen. Ted Cruz in his office.

Even in this casual session, Sen. Cruz showcased his in-depth knowledge of myriad subjects. After 15 minutes or so his staff insisted he get to the Senate floor for a vote. Before leaving, I introduced myself and said I wrote for Ricochet.com. He praised the site, smiled broadly and said, “you wrote a parody about how I was a bully.”

A Toast To Ricochet—Rachel Lu

 

Today is my 2-year Rico-versary. Two years ago, I took the plunge, forked over the cost of a grande latte at Starbucks (remember that?), and put up my first post.

Life has certainly changed since then, and Ricochet has been a very positive part of that. I think I would have been pretty thrilled two years ago if you’d shown me what my life would be like today.

Interview: James Delingpole on The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism

 

Since there’s no Ricochet podcast this week, if you missed my interview with Ricochet’s own James Delingpole at PJ Media, perhaps it will make up for the loss, slightly. (And given that it’s Earth Hour or Earth Day, or Earth Week, or some other pagan eco-holiday this week, it’s worth pointing out that my interview with James is much more ecologically friendly than most Ricochet podcasts, as no Blue Yetis were harmed in the making of this podcast.)

As James mentioned during our interview, “I’m not a scientist and actually given what I’ve seen of scientists in my experiences following the global warming scam, I’m glad I’m not a scientist because a lot of these guys are basically shysters and crooks. They’re not some kind of white-coated elite with a special hotline to the truth. In fact, they’re just ordinary guys and girls trying to earn a living like the rest of us but slightly more dodgily than the rest of us in the one or two egregious cases.” And that’s one of the kinder things that the author of The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism: The Left’s Plan to Frighten Your Kids, Drive Up Energy Costs, and Hike Your Taxes has to say on the subject. He’ll also discuss:

On the last Ricochet podcast, the idea was offered that a group of moderators be empowered to handle the tone of the conversation/s he or she would moderate. Since we have a code of conduct which can be applied, empowering moderators to apply that code of conduct might prove iffy. There are people here whom […]

Searching for the last post on Ricochet related to cats goes way back to Feb 18, 2014. So, here is a post on cats. Share a pic or comment on your cat. Or share a pic of your dog. Cats rule the internet, but dogs are nice too. This is my cat. The photo was […]

Metaphorically speaking of course. While I do not see anyone leaving this mortal coil over design changes instituted by our glorious leadership I certainly can imagine no few who simply say, “I’ve had enough.” More

Welcome to The New Ricochet: 2.0 is Live! by Rob Long

 

Okay, here it is.While Out

And yes, there are nested comments. But only to one level. We’re going to try this. It’s an experiment. If it works at this one level, then great. If it doesn’t, we fix it. Not a big deal. We’re right wingers: we believe in fixing things that don’t work. It’s the other guys who refuse to change.
