Dept. of Corrections

The following has been added to the article linked here at Tucker Carlson’s International House of Pancakes and Conservative Journamalism: Correction: The star of Apprentass 4 was Angel Dark, not Alicia Machado The headline remains “Porn Star Campaigns For Hillary Clinton,” the fact that Alicia Machado is not a “porn star” notwithstanding, and that fact […]

Insane Clown Posse

Fear of a Trump presidency has reached such heights that people are seeing frightening characters with garishly painted faces and weird hair everywhere they turn. Another clown sighting has been reported in an Arkansas county, authorities say. Cross County Sheriff J.R. Smith said Tuesday night that his office had received one unverified report involving four […]

SEK IS LIAR WHO LIES WITH HIS LIES

ALL WORDS COURTESY OF OLDMAN CAT FACEBOOK PAGE BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE WE LIVE OLDMAN MUND: WHAT HAPPENED HERE SEK: Bunch of fleas died. OLDMAN MUND: WHO KILLED THEM SEK: You did. OLDMAN MUND: DID NOT THEY WERE MY FRIENDS SEK: No, they weren’t. OLDMAN MUND: NOW THEY ARE DEAD SEK: The horror, the horror […]

You know who else the elites thought they could control?

If you’re into schadenfreude (why do the Germans always come up with the best words for the most reprehensible things I wonder?) consider the present position of the GOP elites in re Littlefingers: Early last week, if you squinted hard enough it was possible to see the Republican Party beginning to unite behind presidential nominee […]

There Is A New Book Out About the Rise of Adolf Hitler

Michiko Kakutani has a review of a new book about Adolf Hitler, which discusses the rise of Adolf Hitler: • Hitler was known, among colleagues, for a “bottomless mendacity” that would later be magnified by a slick propaganda machine that used the latest technology (radio, gramophone records, film) to spread his message. A former finance […]

The Losers of Globalization

It’s amazing to me that the media and policymakers, not to mention a whole bunch of commenters on this thread, are just waking up to the fact that globalization is not great for everyone, that there are real losers, and that dealing with job loss and long-term unemployment is a real thing that maybe we […]

The Libertarian Jill Stein

When I ranked Gary Johnson above Harambe in terms of his grasp of basic policy issues, I may have been too generous. Share

Stop and Frisk

Simon Balto has a rejoinder to Donald Trump’s fearmongering call to institute stop and frisk policing in Chicago. See, Chicago has a long history with this. It’s not a good history. Legally constructed in the 1960s, stop-and-frisk was forged in a political moment that, much like our own, was governed by racial fears and anxieties, […]

Privatization in the Age of Inequality

Everyone should check out the report released today by In the Public Interest on how privatization increases inequality. Here are the five key findings: Creation of new user fees: The creation of new user fees to fund public services disproportionately impacts the poor. As government budgets have declined, some jurisdictions have tried outsourcing services to […]

Reading Election in the Year of Trump

Maureen O’Connor’s reflection on Election is brilliant: I imagine that how anyone feels about the end of Election will be a Rorschach blot reflecting how you feel about feminism, men’s rights, and who is entitled to what. After some mildly dirty maneuvers, Tracy wins the election. But when Mr. McAllister sees her elated reaction to […]

Mao Mao

Counter-factuals are fun… Modern scholarship on the history of the CCP has demonstrated that Mao rarely, if ever, had complete control over the Party machinery. He struggled through his entire tenure against competitors, both bureaucratic and ideological. Many of the decisions Mao made had strong support from the rest of the CCP, and emerged more […]

Albums that Changed Your Life

  I thought we could all use a reset, a palate cleanser, post-debate, so how’s this? What are 10 albums that changed your life? By “changed your life” I mean had a profound impact on you, shaped how look at music, shaped your tastes, that you played a million times. A lot of my choices  […]

Mission accomplished

Donald Trump has told a crowd of 7,500 that he was holding back during the first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton because he did not want to embarrass her. He insisted that every poll showed him winning the debates but cited only internet surveys to prove this; every scientific poll taken in the aftermath of […]

Christ, What a Pathetic Operation Tucker Carlson Is Running

“One. She was a who-were.” Shorter some Daily Caller hack: “It’s fine that Donald Trump fat-shamed Alicia Machado, because she’s also a slut.” Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination is truly a mystery that will never be explained. Share

Why Yes, I Would Like to Subscribe to Your Newsletter

As the Lars Ulrich of LGM, I get lots of electronic mail: Well, if a medical degree in ophthalmology, combined with residence in Dallas, TX, isn’t enough to create interest in someone’s commentary about the election, then just what the heck is? Share

EpiPen Gougers Dissemble To Congress

This is…less than surprising: Mylan NV on Monday clarified the profit it said it made from its lifesaving EpiPen drug, days after House members badgered the company’s CEO to justify the device’s steep price increases. Testifying before a congressional committee last week, CEO Heather Bresch said Mylan’s profit was $100 for a two-pack of the […]

The Ballad of OLDMAN CAT versus the CANDIED INSECTS

Part One 1. I take a nice long bubble bath in an apartment empty but for me and the OLDMEN CATS 2. I sleep for eight hours alone but for me and the OLDMEN CATS 3. I awake to find half my house covered in tiny black insects carrying eggs that are neither ants nor […]

The New Cyber Vendetta?

Interesting stuff from Brian Krebs: More than 20 years after Gilmore first coined that turn of phrase, his most notable quotable has effectively been inverted — “Censorship can in fact route around the Internet.” The Internet can’t route around censorship when the censorship is all-pervasive and armed with, for all practical purposes, near-infinite reach and capacity. […]

At least it’s an ethos

Picking up on part of the excerpt in Lemieux’s latest breaking news: In order to understand why Donald Trump continues to say disgusting things, start with the premise that he isn’t talking to you. Unless you already agree with Donald Trump. What’s remarkable about the Fox and Friends exchange, other than its cruelty, is that […]

Trade, Trump, and the Debate

Overall, Hillary Clinton embarrassed Donald Trump last night. But let’s not kid ourselves, Trump absolutely crushed her on trade in the early part of the debate. I found it highly disturbing to realize that if I didn’t know that Trump didn’t actually care about this issue and certainly doesn’t care about the workers of the […]
