Re: Universal Basic Income vs Universal Basic Assets

You LOL now, but when the idiot leftist protesters here start destroying our cities, it won't be nearly as amusing. The stupidest thing Macron could have done was give in to the protesters, and that's exactly what he did. What happened to never negotiate with terrorists? Now the mobs here will be e...

Re: How I Found Freedom

I've never been able to read anything on a computer screen. As you might imagine, my toner bill gets quite large. I actually got incredibly lucky a couple of years back and found a hardbound copy of the book in the local Goodwill store. That was a day to remember! But there have been many times that...

How I Found Freedom

What a superlative book. Unfortunately, copies are going for $35 and up these days, and those generally are the ones in tattered condition. I got the impression that Craig and MediumTex (never knew his real name) were working on some projects with the heirs. Does anyone happen to know whether there ...

Re: Fear is the mind-killer

I've come to embrace fear. Far from a mind-killer, it's one of the most efficient learning tools we have. Research has shown that organisms adapt far more efficiently to negative reinforcement than to positive; you touch a hot stove once and never again. The so-called "negative" personality may, in ...

Re: Kavanaugh

And what do you think she wants? Besides death threats and public shaming by 30% of the population, that is? Just as predicted: Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct 36 years ago, received a $1 million windf...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

It's a painful stretch to call this a "civil war." In fact it's about as goofy as calling a two-year-old's tantrum a family crisis.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

I've never been sure what is meant by "post-modernism," so I looked it up: Postmodernism, also spelled post-modernism, in Western philosophy, a late 20th-century movement characterized by broad skepticism, subjectivism, or relativism; a general suspicion of reason; and an acute sensitivity to the ro...

I"ll just say that having learned a little bit about the circumstances, I can only feel respect for Jackson's choices. 'Nuff said.

Re: Kavanaugh

I'm still raising a 22 year old millenial. She was adopted so she she's not infected with my baby boomer genes. On one hand I could commend her for the minimalist lifestyle she is leading. She doesn't drive a car but walks to work every day to her part time job that provides her with all the money ...
