AOC's ignorant attack on St. Damien of Molokai

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., NY), in the words of a friend, gave new meaning to the word moron. She attacked Saint Damien of Molokai as an example of “what patriarchy and white supremacist culture looks [sic] like.” What provoked her was that a statue of the saint, who gave his life attending to lepers, was in the Capital. ...

Bravo, John Kass. You stand with Mike Royko

My initial post defending John Kass against the Chicago Tribune Guild’s bush league attack on him is here. After being attacked by the left-wing, cancel cops on the staff of the Chicago Tribune, columnist John Kass didn’t fold. He didn’t go along–like so many Republican politicians–and suck it up, afraid to hand out a well-deserved... Read more »

Chicago Tribune Guild's attack on co-worker John Kass is bush league

Update: Bravo, John Kass. You stand with Mike Royko. Unprofessional, amateurish, unfair and utter bullshit. I would add. Media columnist Robert Feder explained the attack in, “Tribune colleagues blast John Kass column as ‘antithetical to our values’.”  Kass’ sin apparently was writing about how billionaire George Soros funds liberal causes and big-city candidates like Cook...

How the woke are screwing up the cities

This won’t go over well with the “woke,” “social justice warriors” and “virtue signalers.” They are driving people–mostly the middle class–out of America’s and the world’s cities. That includes Chicago, where departures continue to exceed arrivals. This hypothesis is detailed by Joel Kotkin* in  an article, “Mayors won’t rule the world,” in Quillette: In reality, the validity of... Read more »

Thanksgiving is a celebration of "white privilege"

Sigh. Can’t I just thank God for all the blessings that he has bestowed on us without lapsing into another scolding reminder of  “white privilege?” New York Times opinion columnist among many others, declares in The Horrible History of Thanksgiving: I spent most of my life believing a gauzy, kindergarten version of Thanksgiving, thinking only of feasts and...

Portland bans urinals in its public building

What’s next to be banned? Jock straps? The below news report does a good job of explaining this weirdness.

Y'all make me sick

You, the cretins on both sides of the political divide. You who are turning the United States of America into a madhouse incapable of governing itself. You who believe that your success requires that the other side must be ground into dust. Ya’ll won’t be happy unless you humiliate and crush your “enemies.”  Winning the election... Read more »

'Do-gooder syndrome'; a case of no good deed goes unpunished

It has to be explained to us clueless whites that doing a good deed for an impoverished black neighborhood in Chicago can actually be a bad deed. So it was when Roc Nation, the entertainment company founded by rapper and businessman Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, partnered with the NFL “to enhance the NFL’s live game experiences and to amplify...

Is "youse guys" now singular too?

How about “ya’ll.” Should a someone who wants to be a gender neutral “they,” also be referred to as “youse guys?” And what are they (pl.) teaching in school about singular and plural conjugations? These  thoughts arose while I was reading “He, she or they: How companies are starting to address calls for a gender-neutral workplace,”... Read more »

In Berkley, they doesn't know grammar

“The City Council in Berkeley, Calif., voted this week to ban gender-specific words in the liberal city’s municipal code, clearing the way for the changes to become official,” reported Yahoo News. So “they” and “them” becomes singular which, of course requires a singular, not a plural, verb, something that the City Council may have overlooked.... Read more »
