It’s that time again when the clickbait that is “top” and “best” and “worst” lists of the year appear. While I don’t think any of these words and phrases are specific to 2018, they are specific to being used and over-used / abused during this past year, and a couple of years prior. It’s time to give all of these a rest. Sadly, once the sheep hear a new baaa they seem compelled to keep repeating it. In no…"Most Annoying Words & Phrases (2018)"
In an earlier article I talked about Top Chef contestant Joe Sasto’s comments about kicking men in the balls, seemingly as a form of expressing disagreement with men ordering beverages that Joe doesn’t consider to be masculine: What Joe said was, “Where I’m from if you ordered one of those you’d get kicked in the nuts.” This was in reference to the German drink known as a radler — what many others may know as a shandy.

Recently I was corresponding with a good friend about the whole “Diversity Is Our Strength” … what do you call it … simply a “saying?” Does it constitute a , of sorts? As per the dictionary definition the saying, which is an “element of a culture,” certainly does seem to be passed from one individual to another … especially by imitation or — or at least simple repetition, if you prefer. From the Prime Minister of Canada, the erstwhile President…"Is “Diversity” Really Our Strength?"
I’ve long been of the opinion, and spoken publicly about the double-standard that exists in Western society, at least, when it comes to violence against men vs. violence against women, and sexual assault against men vs. sexual assault against women. The fact of the matter is, of course, that there should be no “vs,” and no debate about the fact that, basically, what is good for the goose is good for the gander when it…"The Normalization of Sexual Assault Against Men"
In May 2017 appeared on The Rubin Report to discuss the challenge of (the preaching or of ), the left’s alliance with Islamists, intersectionality, the indoctrination occurring on college campuses, and more. Back in 2013 published an article, Why is the left so blinkered to Islamic extremism?, which discusses the One Law For All — No Sharia Law Campaign report Siding With the Oppressor: The Pro-Islamist Left, and the then more novel troubling findings — arguably it is a reality that…"The Political Left’s Dangerous Support of Islamists"
Such an interesting and insightful video. Prof. is such an intelligent and strong personality and debater, and the leftists who went after him at the truly did so at their own peril.
