SOLO has been in cruise mode for some time now, not to mention bruise mode from some of the pitched battles that have gone on. The bruising will no doubt continue, given the open, pan-factional and uncensored nature of the board, and the cruising is fine as far as it goes, but it doesn't go far enough.

Nanny State—Time to Beat the Bitch Back!

My guest commentary in the current edition of the New Zealand Centre for Political Research newletter, published by former ACT MP Muriel Newman.

_______________________

I can’t be sure, but it may well have been me who introduced the term “Nanny State” into the New Zealand vernacular, on my Politically Incorrect Show on Radio Pacific.

Tomorrow I attend the G-8 Summit, where I will meet with the leaders of the world's most powerful economies.

Re: James Valliant

Like many of you I was saddened at the departure of my friend James Valliant from SOLO. I've been in touch with him and Casey Fahy privately looking for a way to settle the dispute between us in a way that doesn't compromise either side or threaten to put a dampener on the robustness of debate that goes on here at SOLO.

The Perils of Infamy

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2007-05-23 08:14

I snuk out an hour or so ago to grab a bottle of Yellow Tail from the nearby dairy. Sporting a Mario Lanza T-shirt and a pair of baggy shorts with my knobbly knees showing, I figured I probably looked even more eccentric than usual. But it was dark and I thought I'd get away with it without frightening the horses or triggering a civil emergency.

A Lesson in Friendship from the Bain/Karam Case

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2007-05-11 07:33

For the benefit of non-Kiwi SOLOists, David Bain, who was convicted in 1995 for the murder of several family members and has been in jail ever since, has just had his conviction quashed by the Privy Council in London. His guilt was clearly not established "beyond reasonable doubt" at the time, but a jury that had little grasp of that concept found him guilty nonetheless.

Reprise: Seven Deadly Sins

Someone whose name I probably ought to remember once said that the road to freedom is replete with annoying bastards. I’ve had my fill of annoying bastards recently—and rather than let some perfectly good exasperation go to waste, I’ve decided to set down for the record precisely what it was that annoyed me, for the edification of lovers of reason and freedom everywhere.

Reprise (celebrating recent events in France)—The French Paradox, American Angst ... and NOSA

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2007-05-09 03:50

C’est indubitable that the French are among the lowest of life forms. It’s empirically obvious that they hark back to some antediluvian stage of human evolution where reptilian characteristics were dominant. In our time, they remain chronically cowardly, simperingly smarmy, shamelessly shallow, fulsomely phony, preposterously pretentious, tawdrily treacherous … and generally disgusting. They whored for Hitler and succoured Saddam. We have nothing to learn from them and every thing to teach them about earning the title of "NEM," n'est-ce pas?

Reagan contra Gun Control

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-04-21 23:01

This is an article written by Ronald Reagan for a gun magazine in 1975. Very a propos right now. Hat-tip: http://patriotpost.us—Linz

There are tales of robbery victims that are shot down in cold blood or executed "gangland style." There are stories of deranged parents killing their children or deranged children killing their parents. There are reports of snipers. And now and then the headlines blurt out that an assassin has struck again, killing a prominent official or citizen.

Shamelessly Shiraz!

After SOLOC 3 in Philadelphia in 2003, it was claimed I had something to do with a Shiraz shortage that afflicted America's East Coast for several months. This claim, while outrageous and slanderous, was probably true. Shiraz has been my mind-alterer of choice for many years now—and my policy on moderation is that it should be practised in moderation, if at all.
