The Grey Lady as bag lady
The NYT smears Ron Paul

The same newspaper that in the 1930s published Pulitzer-winning lies about Stalin’s atrocities and the same magazine that smiled and nodded in the Noughties when Katharine Jefferts Schori said her church’s members are richer and better educated than Roman Catholics.
How, you may ask, does someone invert reality to such a degree that the kindly country doctor, whose good name is a byword for integrity and principle, suddenly is turned into a monster with a hidden agenda? Well, it isn’t easy, and they’re having a really hard time of it...

It’s all good. It means we’re winning!

qua political philosophy, by definition, cannot be racist. It is a political philosophy based on the view that all human beings have rights by virtue of their nature and the nature of the human condition.

No libertarian can possibly be racist in their political philosophy. It’s possible for a libertarian to be a racist I suppose but not in their political views. Were a “libertarian” to adopt racist political views, he would instantly cease to be a libertarian.

A favourite Christmas story I’ve blogged in years past: I learnt it from now-Sir Paul McCartney’s song and video ‘Pipes of Peace’ about 25 years ago

Escape from America?

An Austrian-economics lesson from secular Christmas tele in the States
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Ev’ryone wishes for silver and gold
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.
