This story is about Romney shutting down a thriving business over a woman. A young woman. A woman young enough to be Mitt’s daughter.
Last night, someone asked me, “who’s the most influential person in your iPhone contacts?” “I don’t know,” I said. “Breitbart’s dead.” David Carr writes in New York Times about the Life and Death of Andrew Breitbart. Be advised that neither Carr nor NYT shares our political beliefs. And the tactics they cheer from the left, they attack when from the right. Funny how when Karen Finney lies about Mitt Romney, it’s good journalism. When Andrew
Business Insider has picked up a Big Journalism story that Andrew Breitbart died last night. (Big Journalism is one of Breitbart’s web sites.) If this is true, then we’ve lost a gallant warrior in the battle to preserve and advance freedom and liberty. Of course, the lefties will flood the internet with hate and bile. So maybe the obit is a plot to draw the lefties out and reveal them for who and what they

When Jobs returned to Apple after 10-year exile, he took stock of all the
Dana Loesch has been plagued with a perstistent cold. Yesterday, her stairs leapt up and kicked her in the . . . Turns out to be a fractured coccyx (aka, tailbone). We feel terrible that Dana had this tale to share with the world, but we congratulate ourselves for limiting the number of cheap jokes. Certainly, we pray for minimal pain and minimal recovery time.
What many people don’t get is that cooperation is not the same as consensus. Cooperation means someone takes the lead on an issue. If it makes sense, and if the leader is perceived to have good character and judgment, others follow. Otherwise, the project is stillborn. It’s the way the market picks leaders. Not through org charts, but through action and response. One person may be the leader on one issue and a cooperator on
“Why would a nation become imperial?,” Steven asked me. “I mean, why would you want to take that on?” The conversation had been on Japan leading up to World War II. The question was important. Why would a nation conquer dissimilar nations? Why accept that burden and risk? My answer, which I’ve grown more fond of as time’s passed, was something like this: Imperial people view everything as a fixed pie. More importantly, if you
Every senior generation decries the banal idiocy of its junior generations. Remember how critical Boomers were of Generation X? Turns out Gen X was one of the most productive generations in a long while. Then Gen Y just went off and fought two wars for us. Historian Neil Howe points us to today’s Happy Hour: a Millennial elected to Michigan’s state assembly last November. http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1&isUI=1 As Howe points out: Many positive Millennial (born 1982-200?) traits
