Memorial Day at the range

Some people say Memorial Day should be a solemn occasion, not a celebration. Those people are full of crap. If you're visiting a cemetery, yes, that's solemn. Otherwise you honor the day best by flying the flag, pausing for a moment of gratitude, and proceeding to ENJOY the freedom your fellow Americans fought for. So... Continue Reading →

Why the “progressive” left de-platforms contrarians

I ran across two quotes today that perfectly encapsulate why the no-platform response is a go-to for the technocrats of the "progressive" left. “Though argument does not create conviction, lack of it destroys belief. ... What no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned. Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains... Continue Reading →

Dissenter part 3: The thought police poke back

Replying to a comment on my post about the Dissenter browser extension, I remarked on how the Left always projects the darkest parts of itself onto its enemies: They’re all in a tizzy looking for fascists under every doormat because fundamentally they ARE fascists; that’s the essence of their cozy relationship with Google, Facebook, Twitter,...

Just leaving this here

Take a look and a listen -- and pay attention to the lyrics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFxsnOm2kLg Dave Mustaine knows WTF is going on. Talk about a song that takes no prisoners... The only thrash outfit that can hold a candle to Megadeth is Testament. (Next time I spin up some Testament, I'll probably start thinking I got... Continue Reading →

In the wake of the New Zealand mosque massacre, I've been thinking about how these things repeatedly play out in the same sad way. I've been thinking about what transforms people from an atomized collection of terrified individuals into people who realize that they have power over the moment -- that they don't have to...

Dissenter: It’s working

You know how you can tell? The powers that be -- the ones that think you and I don't deserve to speak at all -- have already tried to break it. A FAR System reader left this comment on my post a few days ago, when I said that the people from whom you're dissenting... Continue Reading →

Dissenter: Now they can’t stop you

You may have noticed that many "progressive" media sources,pundits, and celebrities take the regressive tack of squelching dissent. They remove contrary opinions, deplatform ideas and people they don't want to hear, or just remove comment sections altogether. Why? Because they hate you, they think you're a bad person, and you don't deserve to speak. Well,... Continue Reading →

Liberals and “liberals”

I used to call myself a liberal. I don't anymore. "Liberals": Owning no law but their own will, more and more combative, less and less tolerant of the idea of ensemble and of equal brotherhood...* Liberals once upon a time... * Quote from Walt Whitman's Democratic Values

Happy birthday…

Happy birthday to the Bill of Rights. 236 years today. Some of the 10 are looking pretty shaky, I have to admit...but when you consider that they've been under attack in various ways for over 200 years, and yet they still refuse to die, that's pretty impressive. As grim as things may look sometimes, it's... Continue Reading →
