James Shaw, Jr., The Waffle House Hero



I do not want to focus on the shooter. He was a mentally unstable individual who was arrested trespassing at the White House previously. He was not legal to have firearms, but somehow got them.  

I would rather focus on James Shaw, Jr, who is pictured in this post and who stopped the gunman, even though Shaw was unarmed. He saw an opportunity and he took it. He is a hero who saved lives.  

My prayers and condolences to those killed and injured in the attack. My thanks to James Shaw, Jr.

Westworld Season 2 Premiers Tonight





Season 1 had some flaws (and fans pretty much figured it out long before the season finale), but overall HBO's Westworld was a smart science fiction adaption and update of the original Michael Crichton film on the moral and social implications of AI. Season 2 premiers tonight and I am hopeful it will be better.

Earth Day and Ocean Plastic Trash





Plastic pollution is a real environmental harm that needs to be addressed. It is mostly not you and me that is doing it (unless you are one of those idiots throwing plastic into streams, lakes or the ocean). It is mostly coming from countries that do not regulate trash and from commercial fisherman (mostly from similar countries, but some here too) losing plastic fishing gear and nets. Still, it harms us all and cleaning it up should be done for all our benefit.

A View From The Beach: Is That All You Got? (God Save The Queen) and Organic Farming No Pancea  He had a cow picture so I linked it. I mostly agree, but it depends. If you are restoring the land as described in The Omnivore's Dilemma and Sand County Almanac (this predate the use of the term organic), yes, organic farming can be a positive good. But most "organic farming" we see in Whole Foods and similar stores is just a marketing ploy for people who like paying more to feel virtuous.

Aubrey O'Day



A Celebrity Apprentice contestant who reportedly had a brief affair with Donald Trump, Jr., which likely contributed to his divorce. I can understand why Vanessa Trump is not putting up with this. Affairs may seem like a good idea at the moment, but they almost always aren't worth it. This above looks like going out for hamburger (granted she looks better below, but I suspect hard living mileage has taken its toll) when you have steak at home. I am sorry it did not work out for DTJ and Vanessa Trump, but Ms. O'Day is probably not the answer...

Close, but Mitt Romney loses in Utah GOP Primary Convention


AoSHQ: Seems sort of important... He does seem to have a gift for this sort of thing.

Mitt could still win in the primary vote to come, but a chance to take it now was missed.  
Rabid Republican Blog: Mr. Second Place

Legal Insurrection: Romney has to go to primary

Hot Air: NeverTrumpers get giddy over Brad Thor

90 Miles from Tyranny: Romney handed shock defeat from Utah GOP

Weekly Standard: What is Trump manages to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain!

I do not hate Mitt Romney.  He is generally a good guy (on a family and personal level), and I assume he would be a moderate wishy washy Republican GOPe Senator (his opponent Kennedy is a better candidate and I hope he wins). Mitt would be a poor proposed leader for the GOP--because he would lose again in the general election.  Culturally the left and media vilified him when he ran for President and Mitt still does not know how to fight back.

Talking about NeverTrumpers, Brad Thor almost got banned from Twitter, but he feels compelled to keep railing about Trump. Really Brad, what policy or position do you disagree with Trump about (other than his Tweeting)?  I wince at things Trump does too (I most certainly do not agree with everything he does). While you almost got banned, however, Trump used and continues to use a hostile social media platform to become POTUS and push his agenda. To me that's smart. We need candidates and conservatives who recognize the real enemy and who fight back and unfortunately guys like Romney suck at it.

Allison Mack arrested for participation in bizarre celebrity sex cult and abuse...



I never watched Smallville, so I did not immediately know who Allison Mack was (although she obviously has a following and I sort of recognize her). Actually branding other women, making them sex slaves, and getting sexual blackmail on them? Wow, as the Hollywood Reporter notes, these are pretty creepy and serious allegations. #MeToo indeed.

Foo Fighters: Monkeywrench with fan "Kiss Guy" Yayo Sanchez



I suspect a set up (talk about the odds), but Kiss Guy shreds.  


Free Speech vs. Alinsky : Fighting Back in the War of Ideas

As some of you probably know, in the immediate wake of the passing of Barbara Bush, some third rate "professor" at a California public college sent out some vile emails about the Bushes. She also then went the added trolling step of giving out the number of an Arizona crisis line as her own (ha ha, too bad if real people in crisis can't call in). David French, in his usual chidey NRO style, said real conservatives™ don't fight free speech (ok I added the real and the trademark symbol).
Ace of Spades put this in the sidebar headlines in response:
Shocking: The Failing Restaurant Aboard the Cuck Cruise Line Refuses to Update Its Ancient RecipesAs the left keeps taking our right to free speech away, David French will continue reprinting the same column about never doing the same to them. I'd like one of these #FakeNewsIntellectuals to answer the question, one time: If this same trope has not produced positive results as regards our right to free expression the last five years, the last ten million time these pieties have been ritually uttered, what are the odds that this time it will do the trick? 
Or is worrying about our ownrights and privileges and Americans something that "True Conservatives" aren't supposed to do? Are we only supposed to worry about the rights of David French's leftwing palz? 
The only passion the #FakeNews conservatives show on free speech issues is when a leftist's free speech rights are threatened -- or one of their cocktail circuit pals', like Kevin Williamson and Bari Weiss. 
Has David French roused himself to write a single word about Lauren Southern being banned from England for passing out an "Allah is gay" pamphlet? Is she not in The Club? Does England's actions not sufficiently threaten David French's career aspirations to write for a leftist journal?
So I concur with David French, Ben Shapiro, John Nolte, Instapundit, Megan McArdle, and Popehat about the importance of free speech and defending it. Yes, people should generally have the right to be an asshole--although I disagree you shouldn't protected from firing for sufficiently unhinged and dangerous behavior. I would love to see Jarrar get the boot, not over her vile free speech, but over her going that added extra step of posting the Arizona crisis number as she did.  And I know this, had a conservative professor (I am sure there are a handful still remaining somewhere out there in academia) pulled a stunt even remotely like Jarrar's they would have been fired already (and banned from sites like Twitter).

In full disclosure Twitter shut me down for 12 hours last night over a tweet I did months ago saying William Kristol and Evan McMullin should be "dead to us."  I did not mean actually dead and the context of the tweet was the use of the term was obvious, but apparently my tweet was too much for sensitive souls at Twitter because I was chilling Kristol and Deadbeat McMullin's fragile gentle voices. But Jarrar remains on Twitter, presumably with no shut down even though she did that stunt with the Arizona crisis line. That's how "free speech" works now a days.
