Enabling the Hamster

by W.F. Price 09.12.2014

It’s a relief to see that Futrelle is back on my case again. I was feeling a bit neglected lately, and wondered whether I still had it in me to stir up his cat lady audience. That question has been answered in the affirmative. So, since it’s been such a long time, I thought I’d […]

Girls Who Code Produces First Killer App

Thumbnail image for Girls Who Code Produces First Killer App by Uncle Elmer 09.12.2014

Efforts to close the “coding gap” between girls and boys are starting to pay off as two teens participating in the “Girls Who Code” program have released an exciting new arcade game that rips the lid off the social ignominy of menstruation. In a society that normalizes gun violence but levies a huge stigma on […]

An English Perspective on Scottish Independence

by W.F. Price 09.11.2014

Opus’s quote pertaining to Scottish independence was too good to pass up, so here’s an excerpt for those reading the feed: Note that the English have absolutely no say in whether they remain joined at the hip like struggling Siamese twins with the Pipe-playing Porridge eaters. Of course we would like our Nuclear deterrent back […]

Why Scottish Women Oppose Independence

by W.F. Price 09.11.2014

A pending referendum on Scottish independence has the UK political and financial establishment in a state of panic, which I must admit gives me no small amount of satisfaction. If I were a Scot, I’d look across the Irish Sea and compare the lot of my Irish neighbors not only with myself, but with the […]

Hate Crime Prosecutions Finally Take Toll on FEMEN

by W.F. Price 09.10.2014

The radical feminist group FEMEN, originally a Ukrainian activist group founded by a male political radical who came up with the ingenious idea of promoting his cause with naked young women (such is the state of modern feminism), has all but evacuated Ukraine and moved to France. This despite the group’s warmongering in Ukraine and […]

We Must Confront the OJ Effect to Prevent Another Legislative Disaster

by W.F. Price 09.10.2014

The Ray Rice incident immediately brings to mind the media hoopla over another domestic violence case, albeit a significantly bloodier one. When OJ Simpson cut his wife Nicole Simpson’s throat along with her friend Ronald Goldman, popular revulsion provided the impetus for the passage of VAWA as an attachment to the 1994 crime bill. VAWA […]

Cat Lady Economics

by W.F. Price 09.10.2014

One of the biggest drivers of where people – especially the young – choose to live is sexual opportunity. It’s an enormous part of the draw of college choice, which neighborhoods people decide to live in and which cities are considered “hot.” One of the most obvious historical movements in this regard was the gay […]

A Good, Simple Rule of Thumb for Parents

by W.F. Price 09.09.2014

There’s a lot of hand-wringing about whether or not it’s politically correct to raise your kids in one place or another, and a lot of guilt-tripping about life choices regarding where one chooses to live. For example, a lot of leftists despise suburbs and want everyone to live in densely populated cities. Still, even those […]

As Hefner Sinks Deeper into his Dotage, Playboy goes Feminist

by W.F. Price 09.09.2014

Playboy, which long took the lead in pandering to teenage male sensibilities, has now emerged from its chrysalis in full feminist glory. To be fair, the magazine has been hit hard by the accessibility of online pornography, and no longer has the cachet it used to, when boys would sneak the magazine from their older […]

The Emperor has no Balls

by W.F. Price 09.09.2014

In the unending quest for equality, truth and reality quite often become the sacrificial victims. Thus we are treated to the spectacle of a man at the top of the list of highest-paid “female” CEOs. Only about 5 percent of the companies in the Fortune 500 are run by women; double the sample size, and […]

Do Women’s Sexual Choices Contribute to Domestic Violence?

by W.F. Price 09.08.2014

During a discussion about Elliot Rodger, I brought up the fact that ideological opposition to feminism and “misogyny” count for an infinitessimal amount of male on female violence. The single largest source of violence against women arises out of their sexual relationships with men. Not men they reject, mind you, but men they have slept […]

Book Review: The Betrayal of American Prosperity

by Elusive Wapiti 09.08.2014

The book: The Betrayal of American Prosperity, by Clyde Prestowitz, published in 2010. Mr. Prestowitz begins his book with a powerful image that stage-sets his argument: The road into the port of Ostia in the latter days of the Roman empire. Clogged with timber, silk, spices, and grains–imports from Asia and Egypt–the Ostia road was […]

ISIL in Context

by W.F. Price 09.05.2014

It’s a bit off the usual topic here, but I can’t help but add my two bits to this national conversation about ISIS/ISIL or whatever they’re being called today. I used to work in this field so I know a thing or two about it, although I’m not as up to date as I used […]

Futrelle Stews over NPR’s Reluctance to do his Bidding

by W.F. Price 09.05.2014

David Futrelle has been on a one-man anti-anti-feminist crusade for several years now, and while he’s racked up a couple small achievements, such as bringing the declining Southern Poverty Law Center on board, much of his effort has been frustrated. His notable lack of charisma, which stands in stark contrast to pro-feminist sociopath Hugo Schwyzer, […]
