China et al. Are Not “Killing Us”
The current Republican front-runner, Donald Trump, has repeatedly claimed that China, and many other countries, such as Mexico and Vietnam, are “killing us” in foreign trade. The basis of his claim is the fact that U.S. imports from those countries substantially exceed U.S. exports to those countries.

Rock 'n' roll is one of the great achievements of mankind. No music today better speaks to people, or means more to them. Especially that of the 1960s and '70s from Britain and America.

It appears to be the case that every US president in the last 30 years is guilty of breaking the law. It seems pretty absurd on its face, though.

As the biggest Donald Trump supporter in the World I watched this spoof film about him with a sense of trepidation wondering if it was some sort of liberal Democrat hatchet job.

Economic, agent-based, game theory research is something which could be ignored by Objectivists based on a first-principle analysis, but that may also be a reactionary mistake.

Twelve Aphorisms for Our Age—Variations on a Theme of Edmund Burke
"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
This adage is usually attributed to Edmund Burke, though its origin is disputed. Whoever said it, it is especially apposite in our politically correct age when one is not permitted even to call anything "evil," much less take action against it. Muslims practise and propagate their barbarous superstition, academia and the media their pomo-Marxism, moronnials their aggressive airheadedness, etc., with an impunity lethal to civilisation, because too many of those who know better say nothing. With current events in mind, I have produced twelve variations of my own on Burke's theme.

It goes without saying that everyone on this site is disgusted by the Pope and by the morally-addled Euro-elites who covered up the artistic glories of Western civilization so they wouldn’t offend the visiting blood-drenched theocratic savage from Iran whose goal is to pull down our civilization.
