Preparing De Facto Those USA Interment Camps

UST WHEN YOU THINK LIFE is already coming at you at breakneck blistering speed, and you can't possibly grab, grip, or grapple with any more Beckspeak for the moment, something or someone else roars in to ramp up the gulag guzzle a few more notches (not that we don't need every hook and handle to help snatch this wobbling nation back from the claws of the death vultures). But every day a new crisis rodeo. Every hour five or six new opinions render us into helpless participants trapped inside this culture-jamming information box nicking us for energy bent on how...

The Thin Veneer Of Cultural Iconology

In his article—Confessions of a Cultural Drop-out—published by Pajamas Media, Victor Davis Hanson slays the huffing and puffing dragon of popular culture by assessing the thin veneer of cultural iconology as it swishes by with no apparent staying power. His last few paragraphs begin with eerily the same language I just this past weekend used to describe my own general malaise which can also be summarily dismissed as simple aging by those who, in Kierkegaard's terms, simply refuse to make distinctions , so I start here...
