A mixed bag to be sure, but "evil" (Hsiekovians)?!—Linz

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. And tonight, I have a high privilege and distinct honor of my own -- as the first President to begin the State of the Union message with these words: Madam Speaker. (Applause.)

Tracinski and ARI

Today's edition of TIA Daily includes the following by Robert Tracinski:

I've received a number of questions about this, so before everyone jumps to a lot of conclusions, I thought it would be a good idea to clear things up publicly.

Bush's Address to the Nation

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2007-01-12 02:03

A good poke in the eye to Saddamites and Hsiekovians. One hopes there will be follow-through on the promise to "address" Iran and Syria. Most worrying to me was that in spite of laying out coherently the consequences of failure, Bush's demeanour suggested his heart wasn't in it. I suspect the Dem-scum and their revolting fellow-travellers have succeeded in breaking his spirit.—Linz

Princess Di, Gays and Group-think

Hsiekovians, a segment of the orthodoxy, have cast me into outer darkness for alleging they were guilty of group-think during the recent debate on Leonard Peikoff's voting fatwa.

Jason Quintana, some months ago, took on an academic load that led him to step down as SOLO's Exec Dir. John Gagnon stepped up.

Recently, Jason shed some of his load ... and John took on a load that led him to want to step down. So Jason is stepping back up ... at least for an interim 6-month period!

SOLOC 5 Postponed, Declaration of Independence Renewed

I'm pleased to announce the postponement of SOLOC 5.

"Pleased" because the circumstances leading up to its postponement afford an opportunity to reiterate the very point of SOLO at a time when it might have been in danger of being blurred or compromised.

The Great Election Debate—Epilogue

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2006-11-09 03:01

Islamo-Fascists, eco-fascists, statists of every hue, pomo-nihilists and Hsiekovians are cheering the Democrats' victory in yesterday's mid-term elections. The Dems are promising to push for "changing course" (i.e. capitulating) in the war against Islamo-Fascism and are in a position to engage in such favourite pastimes as raising taxes domestically. I trust the odd people out in the above list, the Hsiekovians, are satisfied.

Stepping Down ... And Stepping Up!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2006-10-03 02:10

Twelve years and seventy-one issues after launching it, I have decided to step down as editor of The Free Radical.

When I say, as I often do, that The Free Radical is the world’s sassiest, KASSiest Objecti-libertarian magazine, I mean it. It is. It has a grunt and humour lacking in all the others. It is, in George Reisman’s words, “a magazine of rare courage and intellect.” It is, in Paul Holmes’ words, “angry, funny and intelligent—just like its editor.” I am inordinately proud of my baby. So why am I relinquishing fatherhood?

"This struggle has been called a clash of civilizations. In truth, it is a struggle for civilization. We are fighting to maintain the way of life enjoyed by free nations. And we're fighting for the possibility that good and decent people across the Middle East can raise up societies based on freedom and tolerance and personal dignity. We are now in the early hours of this struggle between tyranny and freedom."

Fifty Years of Appeasement Led to Black Tuesday

Wednesday, September 12, 2001

By: Leonard Peikoff

Fifty years of increasing American appeasement in the Mideast have led to fifty years of increasing contempt in the Muslim world for the United States. The inevitable climax was the tens of thousands of deaths on September 11, 2001--the blackest day in our history, so far. The Palestinians, among others, responded by dancing in the streets and handing out candy.

As the fifth anniversary approaches of the pre-eminent attack in recent times by Islamo-Fascist filth on western civilization, President Bush has reminded his countrymen they are still at war. "Bin Laden and his terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them. The question is 'Will we listen? Will we pay attention to what these evil men say?'"

'Boston Legal' Goes Down The Tube :-(

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2006-08-30 07:32

I never thought I'd switch off Boston Legal, let alone the two-hour season finale. For sparkling dialogue, KASS courtroom speeches and a willingness to eschew PC, BL has long been among my fave TV shows. But I did note with alarm its ongoing sell-out to fashionable nihilism & pomo-wanking—headbanging caterwauling segueing from one scene to the next, seasickness-inducing hand-held camera-work, etc.. For the sake of lines like "The distinguishing attribute of human beings is their ability to reason" (from just last week: Alan to Denny) I was prepared to put up with it. Last night it was just too much. TV by esthetic savages with Attention Deficit Disorder for esthetic savages with Attention Deficit Disorder. It was disgusting, & I turned it off.
