We are too weak for satire [poem]

One poem commenting on two comments. The first is Stickwick, who has a job and writes academic books. The subject is that Foz Meadows accused Vox Day of being in the NSDAP reborn, which he not only denied but (as he knows the editor of Black Gate) got the relevant accusations removed. The charge of … Continue reading We are too weak for satire [poem]

What rude beast is this? [Rev 18]

Sometimes these write themselves. Today the elite as called all those who believe in righteous and justice and a freedom to worship God in peace deplorable. And I'll link back to the site she accuses of stirring this up. For I think Mr and Mrs Beale rock. I don't agree with everything they say, particularly … Continue reading What rude beast is this?

The dying boomer apostates. [Heb 6]

Glen Frey is dead. David Bowie and Alan Rickman died last week. I can recall that when the Eagles arrived in NZ for their farewell tour a fair number of those who remember the 1970s (the first time: history is repeating, as a farce, at present) went to see them as a nostalgia thing. As … Continue reading The dying boomer apostates. [Heb 6]

His partner, who he met at the skeptics society, had some of her friends, and we had a good … Continue reading Petunia nagging fail [Mt 22]

Expect opposition [I Peter 4]

Well, we are going to have a fairly tough time. Locally, it appears that my town is going to be a refugee centre. This led to a very scary conversation at lunchtime, when a Singhalese colleague who has just come from the UK made the comment that the Christians and Yezhadis and Amalites have fled … Continue reading Expect opposition [I Peter 4]

The worm is turning… but which way?

The current narrative in the press, and in the blogs, is relating to racism. A term that bores me: I deem it meaningless. Meaningless: the very vagueness leads to a sense that there can be a moral panic. Which is what we have in the USA: what we are having reported to us. In the … Continue reading The worm is turning… but which way?

A time for disobedience.

Microregulation, like micromanagement, does not work. The service that completes the paperwork perfectly are not making anything or seeing anyone. The manager who regulates every aspect of their worker's performance demotivates. In addition, the assumption that centralized regulators would have unique expertise has proven unfounded. Government bureaucracy is increasingly a kludgeocracy (a word coined by … Continue reading A time for disobedience.

Sad Puppies cause Butthurt, and the glory to come.

Yesterday I got the texts muddled up, but I made some notes reading around and they apply in part to yesterday's text, so here goes. Via Kathy Shaidie, a Canadian conservative who found this link about a UK feminist who is hitting her head against the wall. I would add, that although retirement is for … Continue reading Sad Puppies cause Butthurt, and the glory to come.
