I'm Thinking of Starting a Bakery

…but I want to make sure I’m not being discriminatory or intolerant before I do.


So how does this price sheet look?  Will it pass the smell test?

I have no problem providing goods and services for people who don’t share the same religious beliefs as I do.  But if they expect me to be the one who will violate my religious beliefs to accommodate theirs, when there are other providers who won’t bat an eye, they had goddamn well better be ready to pay for that service too.



The Second Amendment: What It Says and What It Means

I love Bill Whittle.  I believe that he is one of the best conservative communicators on the web today.  I don’t make time enough to keep up with his prodigious output, and that is a poor reflection on me.  Today, I found this video on the plain language of the Second Amendment.  I don’t need to comment on it as it stands on its own.  But I want to repeat a point that will be made in the video.

A well-schooled electorate, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and read Books shall not be infringed.

To hear a liberal gun control advocate tell it, this would restrict access to books only to people with a certain level of schooling – which, of course, could only be gained through rote memorization.  You certainly can’t learn it from books, because that would be illegal!!  At least until you passed the test.


We Had To Destroy The Forest To Save This Tree

I found this delightful video at VodkaPundit but it originates with Andrew Klavan at TruthRevolt.org.

I admit to being shocked that the subject matter was NOT about the abortion rate among African Americans, but that’s been much discussed also.

A brief warning:  you’ll want to pay close attention because there is much rhetorical tomfoolery at work here.  It wouldn’t be hard to get lost and miss the point.


This Actually Explains A Lot

Over at PJMedia, Spengler opines on why folks like The Reason I’m Here hate people like me so much:

They are being silly. We know they are being silly, and they know we know, and they can’t stand it. It isn’t quite how we repudiate the idea that the opposing party has any legitimacy at all. But we can’t stop giggling.

“Reductio ad absurdum” does not begin to characterize the utter silliness of liberals, whose governing dogma holds that everyone has a right to invent their own identity. God is dead and everything is permitted, Zarathustra warned; he should have added that everything is silly. When we abhor tradition, we become ridiculous, because we lack the qualifications to replace what generation upon generation of our ancestors built on a belief in revelation and centuries of trial and error. Conservatives know better. G.K. Chesterton said it well: “Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.”

It resonates.  He’s an idiot.  We know he is an idiot, and he knows that we know.  And he can’t stand that we refuse to take him seriously.
