Re: Blast From the Past (Timothy Noah & Rich Lowry)

There's another %selfname in the world soaking up the interwebs ahead of me, and he's a 12 year old German boy who's already cooler than I am.

Re: Ron Paul can win Iowa

It's not actually known if this is his view, or if it's a clever pandering, he's very fast on diverting the subject into conservative dog whistles. The Austrians were in favor of "Freedom of Trade...

Re: Two Cheers For New Jersey! (Mark Schmitt & Kevin D. Williamson)

Education is easy, if the student wants to learn. The problem is that children do not want to be at school for lots of reasons, and the methods employed have too much emphasis on preparing farm...

Re: Two Cheers For New Jersey! (Mark Schmitt & Kevin D. Williamson)

Reverse Stupidity is not intelligence. It's a flaw to assume that the targets of the SPLC are undeserving of it. Yes, I'm sure they have some good points somewhere, since there are no one sided...

Re: Lessons Learned: The Islamophobia Network (Wajahat Ali & Tim Murphy)

Re: What People Know About Drugs is Wrong (John McWhorter & Mark Kleiman)
