FLOTUS. Slayin’ it. Like a boss.

… and unlike Jackie O.

As is the wont of liberal commentary, things are supposed to take on a higher meaning other than face value, including it now seems, footwear. Melania Trump was spotted wearing fashion pumps unpleasing to Liberal World, quickly rising to a Let-Them-Eat-Cake level of nonsense. She is the new Marie Antoinette for……


The Long, Slow March Towards Idiocy, part 4

Antifa and the institution of corporate sponsored tribalism.

Antifa are not anti-fascist. They have brought to American shores a political style of thuggery more in line with European political movements of the early 20th century. Do not let the name distract you. While they claim to be anti-fascist, their method and rhetoric are more in tune……


Theological Francis versus Theological Tyson – Part 2

Modernity as another in a line of Catholic schisms.

Christian Theology, you ask? Well…that there is one big can of worms. Actually, it’s more like a 2000 year old tangle of cobwebs. Dusty. Old. Took a really, really long time to accumulate. So, so many threads. And once you walk into them, engaging with them, trying……


The Long, Slow March Towards Idiocy, part 3.

Or why Lucky Luciano is a better baby-sitter for your kids than any African tyrant.

In part 2 of this series, School of Vice described an academic theory called Hobson-Leninism. The theory describes what the industrial societies of white Europe are supposedly to have done during the colonial period; that is they took……


Theological Francis versus Theological Tyson – Part 1

…and why Francis doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance.

Mike Tyson, as a boxer, has been called The Baddest Man on the Planet, one of the greatest punchers of all time, the hardest hitter in the history of heavyweight boxing, the scariest boxer ever, and perhaps the most ferocious fighter to step into a professional ring.  He……


The Long, Slow March Towards Idiocy, Part 2

You know who I’m talking about.  Every family has at least one…

There you are…at the latest family get-together, minding your own business when suddenly and for no good reason, you find yourself being verbally beaten about the head and shoulders by your sister-in-law…again.  Suspiciously butch yet avowedly hetero-, politically Left-leaning, and Bernie Sanders loving Rhonda……


The Other Side of the Baby Budget

There Are Still Perfectly Good Forty Dollar Babies.

Speaking of babies, I was interested in the article in a recent number of The Century reciting the high cost (in terms of money) of bringing them into the world. The figures quoted were accurate enough as regards the conditions stated, but……


The Long, Slow March Towards Idiocy, part 1.

Or…why sentimental anti-colonialism actually means reverting back to form.

At any given time in history and in any given place, there is a climate of opinion. Climate of opinion is loosely defined as the ideas swirling about in the public sphere contributing to the debate about current events. What people see on TV news programs or……


Naval Bombardments and Mr. Trump

The strike conducted by the US Military in the pre-dawn hours Friday morning on a Syrian Air Base was a classic naval bombardment using new style weapons.  The weapons employed were 59 Tomahawk Cruise Missiles which travel at sub-sonic speeds, are terrain hugging, and can carry payloads of different types.  The payloads employed last week were……


Arrival – No. Not yet. Not at all.

Don’t expect much. Expect very little, in fact. Do, however, expect computer generated imagery; wooden characters; emotional set-ups without the resolution expected from well conceived plots; a muddled, irresolute ending; and the occasional political jab. The Elegant Miss Pritchard is tempted to use a non-linear critique in this non-linear film to give you a taste……
