Why does Ted Cruz’s Speech Bother Me So Much?

Reading Time: 4 minutesI’m trying to put my finger on exactly why I found Ted Cruz’s remarks Wednesday night so incredibly distasteful. The Pledge thing is a goodly part of it. Simply put, the parties to the Pledge Ted Cruz signed were only Ted Cruz and the RNC (by extension, you can probably include the delegates and voters, …

How Conservatives Abandoned Principles Over Trump

Reading Time: 3 minutesYou’ve probably been hearing a lot about “principles” lately. Ted Cruz’s entire campaign centered “conservative principles” and being a “principled conservative.” Lately, though, most of that “principles” talk is about how Donald Trump has caused good conservatives to abandon their principles. Maybe that’s true. In fact, I’m starting to believe it. The one principle that …

A couple years ago on a Saturday night, I wrote about 2,000 words on the meaning of “democracy” and “republic.” I never posted it out of pity for you. I’m telling you, there’s a lot of …

The Entire World Is a Sick Joke

Reading Time: 1 minutesGreece’s parliament just signed its surrender to Germany. The country signed over virtually all of its national assets and all its future income for 30 years. No one believes Greece will make good on the agreement, and Greece didn’t want the deal. Germany demanded it, and Greece surrendered. But Greece will default at some point. …

Mastering One’s Domain

Reading Time: 2 minutesI own a ton of domain names. Most of them I’ll never use. I bought them–and pay for them–because I don’t want anyone else to have them. Many contain “teabaggers.” Many contain “teaparty.” Many contain “Hennessy,” although the cognac people had sucked up quite a few of those already. Everyone should invest in domains containing …
