Liberals and Personal Responsibility

I got asked this question recently, how do I know that liberals reject the idea of personal responsibility, since I make that claim so often.  And my answer is simple.  Look at the social programs that liberals support, programs that simply cannot exist if personal responsibility does. So what do I mean by personal responsibility?  […]






NASA: Dreamers vs. Pragmatics

It’s funny to watch the left scream about Trump, claiming that he will destroy NASA and bring down science to please his religious overlords.  Of course, the fact that Trump has already said that he wants to increase funding to NASA doesn’t seem to make a difference to them, they just know what he’s going […]






Everyone Isn’t Like Me

I can’t tell you how sick I am of hearing this, but when I end up in a discussion about personal responsibility and I bring up the fact that I can and do live within my means, that I do make responsible decisions and that I do all of the things that my personal philosophy […]






Excuses Excuses

This has been a long-running problem for me and I just don’t get it at all.  But on the radio this morning, there was a call from a woman who underwent some kind of personal tragedy and she thought that was a good reason to get away without paying her mortgage.  Um… no. See, when […]






Never Tell Me The Odds

It’s that time again, time to look at the stupidity of accommodationists and the idiocy of their emotional positions.  This time, we started having a debate over whether or not gods are likely to exist in the real world.  That is, of course, after he kept accusing me of believing that no gods were real, […]






The Libertarian Lunacy Returns

While there’s a lot of drama going on with the Trump victory and the whiny, crying Clinton supporters, there’s one more thing that nobody should be surprised at, the complete and utter failure of the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.  Anyone with half a clue knew that he’d lose and by a ridiculous margin, but you […]






Mental Health & the Cops

Some people have ridiculously unrealistic expectations.  In a recent case where the police fatally shot a mentally ill black man who took up a shooting position against them, we now have the idiots on the left screaming that, in addition to enforcing the law, cops ought to be mental health professionals too. Because that makes […]






Unsupported Liberal Claims of Racism

Liberals and the regressive left spend a lot of time claiming that there is institutional racism out there, but can never actually present any evidence to back it up.  Oh, they throw around a ton of claims and anecdotal evidence showing that blacks generally perform worse than whites, but they can never make the demonstrable […]






Replacing Religion

Not long ago, Jack over on Atheist Revolution wrote a post on replacing religion.  It’s an interesting question, but one that I’ve never really felt necessary.  It’s like saying “what other cancer would you like to replace your lung cancer with?”  Well, none, of course.  That doesn’t mean that we can’t have some kind of […]






Why Third Parties Fail

I see a lot of people complaining about the two-party system in America, saying that it’s failed the American people and we ought to have more parties.  They forget that we have a ton of third parties, those parties have simply failed to gain any significant backing.  While some people trot out the conspiracy thinking […]






The Libertarian Delusion

I always find it funny how delusional ardent libertarians are.  They are supremely convinced that some day, the whole world will just magically adopt their political ideology and when it doesn’t happen, there must be some grand conspiracy afoot keeping them from their rightful place at the head of the line.  This is nothing new, […]






Freedom vs. Responsibility

I’ve been having an ongoing discussion with a libertarian who seems convinced, as most of them seem to be, that there’s some grand conspiracy to keep everyone from acknowledging the supremacy of the libertarian position.  This is crazy conspiracy theorist talk.  You’d think they could see how ridiculous it is. But it’s also funny, he […]
