I recently posted about the “suicide” by nailgun of Richard Talley being the fourth financier to succumb to suicide. Zero Hedge has an updated list of the now nine financiers in their post about a BitCoin exchange CEO’s possible suicide. The nine are: 1 – William Broeksmit, 58-year-old former senior executive at Deutsche Bank AG, […]

I just found this and thought it was funny.
“Everybody knows” that Ronald Reagan led the US to victory in the Cold War with the help of Margaret Thatcher’s Britain. Al Benson, jr at Revised History posted on the Ukrainian mess: “We need to get one thing straight here. Obama is a Marxist. Putin, the supposedly ex-KGB man, is a Marxist. So who’s kidding […]
I’m shocked! I can’t believe that Noah, the new Russell Crowe movie, is anything other than a literal retelling of the Bibical narrative! Who would have thought hollywood would do that! Seriously, though, who would have thought Hollywood would turn a thousand word story into an epic adventure drama that strictly adhered to the source […]
Ah, Africa, if you didn’t exist, racist comedians would have to invent you. Maybe they did, I don’t know. I once described Africa as cartoonishly violent, I thought it was hyperbole, but then Aimless Gromar mentioned this site. C’mon Africa, its getting hard to take you seriously anymore.
The Roman conquest of Britain began around AD 43 under Claudius, and Christianity reached the isle by the second century. Yet, the Irish, who were never Roman, were responsible for spreading it through what is today Scotland, Wales, England and the Western continent. Like a wave rebounding off a wall.
At Vdare, Ann Coulter has a piece about the minimum wage. Her contention is that a minimum wage debate is a political jackpot for the dems; they can’t lose. “It’s win-win-win-win-win for Democrats. Employees who get a higher minimum wage are grateful to the Democrats. Employees who lose their jobs because of the minimum wage […]

Via Washington’s Blog via Zero Hedge via Vox Day and I’m not sure how this one fits in the chain.

Do you want a motorhome and a houseboat, but can’t afford both? Good news!
I read these occasionally when the internet is having a slow day. Here’s a few: Concerning himself intensely with his neighbor’s condition allows the Christian to dissimulate to himself his doubts about the divinity of Christ and the existence of God. Charity can be the most subtle form of apostasy. The particular creature we love […]
Pussy Riot, the Russian ‘band’ who are really a professional activist group in the vein of FEMEN, showed up in Sochi for some of their nonsense. The local cops weren’t having any, thank you. Libertarian response, “ERMAHGERD, police brutality!”
You’ve heard of the Knoxville Horror, the Wichita Massacre, the Pearcy Massacre, etc. Now we have the Detroit Massacre, or maybe Horror, we’ll have to wait for more details. Freep Four people have been charged with murder in the deaths of three people who were found stabbed last week in a burning house on Detroit’s […]
The Right Stuff Capitalism or socialism? What do? It is a strange feature of current western society that this debate continues to rage with such ferocity. It seems that all political divisions in Western nations today come down to this question, and both sides have their fervent adherents. Indeed, commitment to either side has taken on the flavor of […]
Thomas Hutchinson (9 September 1711 – 3 June 1780) was a businessman, historian, and a prominent Loyalist politician of the Province of Massachusetts Bay in the years before the American Revolution. A successful merchant and politician, Hutchinson was active at high levels of the Massachusetts government for many years, serving as lieutenant governor and then […]
The first rule of the Jewish Mafia is you do not talk about the Jewish Mafia. I found this in a round about way, from The Right Stuff, I think, and its interesting enough to post a link. The links on the right side lead to similar lists in other areas of government and media. […]
An excerpt from an old Zero Hedge post: This notion that government and regulation is the problem is true only to the extent that government has become weakened and corrupted by gross abuses. Effective government takes planning, continual hard work, and the adjustment of renewal and reform. Human constructs, if not continually managed and repaired […]

Pat Buchanan at Vdare Rather than play Lord Cardigan and lead his cavalry in another Charge of the Light Brigade, Boehner chose to withdraw to fight another day on another field.

So, the will of the people is again shown to be null when it doesn’t line up with the leftist’s agenda. Via Vox Day NY Times A federal judge on Thursday evening declared that Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, in the strongest legal reversal yet of restrictive marriage amendments that exist throughout the […]
When economic collapse, tyranny, crime and all the evils of the world start to give me deja vu, or if I’m just bored, I turn to youtube. I’m not the biggest blues fan, I find most of it pretty dull, but there are a few exceptions. Lonnie Johnson’s careeer had two distinct phases-20s-30s and 50s […]
Edit below Opossum Creek Courier A little over a year ago ( February 5, 2013 ) Lew Rockwell published an article written by Mac Slavo. In the article Mr. Slavo speculated about big order ammunition purchases by various government agencies and wondered if they might be for a commonly overlooked campaign promise by Barack Obama […]
vdare … The conclusion – the Republican leadership isn’t composed of “leaders” at all. GOP Congressmen are not listening to the likes of Boehner, Ryan, and Cantor. Speaker Boehner resembles one of those late Roman Emperors who is a prisoner of his own soldiers. So who could command the loyalty of the troops? The answer: […]
Revised History Recently, I read an interesting article on the American Thinker website http://www.americanthinker.com written by Jason McNew and entitled Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991? In his article Mr. McNew mentions an ex-KGB Major named Anatoliy Golitsyn who wrote a book back in 1984 in which he predicted that the “liberalization” or […]
I just saw a commercial for the next season of Amish Mafia. Its an obviously fake show, but the ad got me thinking, why would a producer choose what is probably the least violent segment of white society to base a show about violence and crime around? The fact that the show is still on, […]
Dumbass “We tell you this because of how often we have seen people mistake how things are done in their niche existence as how things are (or should be) done everywhere. When in another type of situation, they proceed to act according to the ‘rules’ of their usual circle. And then they wonder why the […]

via amren Daily Caller North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday. The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters and poor voters. According to official […]
We’re all aware of jihadis, the knockout game or mexican cartels, but in an economic downturn when the rule of law is weakened or nonexistent, regular crime (“you don’t go visit family on Christmas eve because its too dangerous”) becomes more prevelant and could be a bigger danger. Reading around, I came across an article […]
I realised that I had a link to the Libertarian Party of NC in my NC Political Alternatives section.

I’ve been reading about immigration, today. I read about some irritatingly anti-american policies of our government and was then led to other areas where our gov is acting against our best interests.

So, I went to Arby’s drive-in window today, five roast beef sandwhiches, a curly fry with “cheese” sauce and a cherry turnover. I got my order and checked it quickly. I saw the turnover, I made sure the “cheese” sauce was there, it was right on top. There was a car behind me, so I […]
Message from the Chairman of the North Carolina Chapter of the League of the South. In my oppinion, he is very charitable towards libertarianism. The libertarian idea, that only individuals exists and there are no groups, is death for any nationalism, Southern or American. Libertarianism denies the value of history, culture or heritage, considering only […]

“Of course, it would be easier to get to paradise with a full stomach, all snuggled up in a soft feather-bed, but what is required is to carry one’s cross along the way, for the kingdom of God is not attained by enduring one or two troubles, but many!” – St. Anthony of Optina
