Today’s hail of bullets from RR
  • Little things mean a lot. Dutch quit Afghanistan.
  • First ‘Mad Men’; now this. Doomsday shelters making a comeback.
  • Is the Jordan River unsafe for baptisms?
  • Know your enemy. NATO deliberately targeted power and water infrastructure in Serbia, in order to demoralize the civilian population. As NATO spokesman Jamie Shea said, ‘If President Milosevic really wants all of his population to have water and electricity all he has to do is accept NATO’s five conditions and we will stop this campaign.’ And in Iraq, the death toll from two decades of strategic bombing, sanctions and infrastructure damage is into the millions. The United States unleashed the equivalent of two Haiti earthquakes on two defenseless countries.
  • Forced to be free.
  • Pathologising ourselves.
  • Sex and the law. A word from Roissy: What the f*** is up with statutory rape? It’s a joke law made up by joke legislators without a scintilla of real-world experience with women. At the borderline of 16 to 18 years old, many women could easily pass for mid to late 20s. It is well known by neuroscientists and psychologists studying these things that women mature faster than men. A 17-year-old hottie who flirts with me knows exactly what she is doing and what she wants. And what about women who lie? They exist, lots of them. It’s time to end the charade. If the “underage” woman is physically developed, and she consents to the sex, there is no rape charge, period. For chrissakes, there are 14-year-olds in parts of the world getting married off and pumping out children of their own. BTW my theory for the moment about him is he’s a more aware version of the guys he’s trying to help: not (in his and other PUAs’ terms) an alpha himself (then he wouldn’t help the competition) but a Promethean figure, a wised-up greater beta helping a brother out. The Anti-Gnostic: Beneath the bluster and decadence is a very substantive, traditionalist message. Roissy is one of those people despised in turn by the Left for his reactionary opinions and by the Right for his (purportedly) dissolute lifestyle. Anybody demonized by all sides of the political spectrum is usually worth a listen in my experience. The fallen natural order described accurately... from Satan’s POV. Summing up his points: women are as evil as men, sex is fun and liberalism is bulls*** nobody really believes (even when they’re socialised to say they do, they act according to nature: women don’t like nice wimps).
  • Let the markets thrive so people can. From Joshua’s bailiwick, after more than 50 years of North-South Korean tension, it’s time to end the socialist fantasy and restore markets and freedom to the North.
  • Tea Party to rally on 9/11 anniversary and it scares part of the left, which recommends the rally to me. But I see the article’s point (no to the red-state fascists: the wannabe theocrats and anti-immigrationists), or why I don’t vote for the Constitution Party which seems more to do with regurgitated protty moral-majoritarianism than the Constitution. (But better Chuck Baldwin than mainstream pols.) But to be fair, to the Tea Party’s credit here I don’t see any sabre-rattling or anti-Arabism. No, the bolshies hate them because they, gasp, hate the government. Good.
  • Col. Andrew Bacevich: the Western way of war has run its course.
  • Answering a lefty whine to libertarians. ‘Under Bush, where were you?’ Where was I? Since 2002 doing what I’m doing right now. Under our Lord, God and Saviour Barack Obama, where are you?
