Top Chef’s Joe Sasto and the power of crystals

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.  At the time I won­dered…

Tyra Banks Continues Her Attack On The President

This week I watched S24E03, Beauty Is a Trademark, of , and again this week (they took a break dur­ing episode 2, at least) the pro­duc­ers of ANTM felt it nec­es­sary to pro­vide a plat­form of vul­gar­i­ty and hate direct­ed at the President of the United States, framed as some sort of empow­er­ing young women to … I’m not sure what. It was the ANTM famous makeovers episode  —  there’s one every sea­son  —  where has cho­sen a sig­na­ture “look” (just a new…

Is “Diversity” Really Our Strength?

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…

The Normalization of Sexual Assault Against Men

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 Political Left’s Dangerous Support of Islamists

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…

Is he describing Liberals / Democrats?

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. At the start, in par­tic­u­lar, does it sound like he is describ­ing Liberals / Democrats?  Be hon­est.  Well, I’ll admit that it bet­ter describes and reflects the pro­gres­sive left, and not tra­di­tion­al lib­er­al­ism or the as many will know and remem­ber them.  But…

Jim Carrey’s Dumb & Dumber opinions about Trump

As every­one and his broth­er has now heard there was a major moment in this past week­end when an employ­ee of the (Hi-EMA) acci­den­tal­ly sent out a warn­ing to Hawaii’s 1.5 mil­lion res­i­dents (and any num­ber of vaca­tion­ing tourists and oth­er vis­i­tors) that a was on an inbound tra­jec­to­ry for the and could strike any­where on near­by land or water with­in min­utes.  The emer­gency alert was sent out via cell phone text mes­sag­ing, radio, and tele­vi­sion.
