Defend free speech and battle nonsensical diversity programs. But rally for everything else too. Because inconsistency is what makes us look racist, sexist, and generally uncompassionate. Principled conservatism means nothing without principles. Principles mean nothing without consistency.
You know why even smart, non-racist people don’t support removing Confederate statues? Because it starts off “civil” but then very quickly things like this happen, where a group of people gets into a massive crowd and destroys a statue just because they feel like it. Even when the law says that the historic statues are… Read more »
BLM always screamed that “systemic racism” was the root cause of police brutality, but even if it is a factor it is not the underlying cause—and pretending it is does not solve and even trivializes the scope of the problem. Anybody can be a victim—even if police brutality disproportionately affects blacks—and everybody should be afraid. The root of the problem is bad training and a philosophy that values the cop’s life more than the civilian’s.
When the authorities are inconsistent about who is virtuous and who is so bad he should be expelled, it destroys trust and creates fear.

Interpreting Law: A Neglected Science At many law schools, students are taught little about the different schools of thought that govern the interpretation of law, and many professors of constitutional law fail to provide any historical context for the clauses and amendments… Read more »
If you see someone at the corner with a gun in his pocket, what would happen if you jumped and killed him? Good luck getting out of jail. Your lawyer would have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that your life was under imminent threat. But there’s a double standard if you’re a cop.
The Republican Party is in shambles. They do not want to unite under Trump. They all have different ideas on what to do. The media suggests this is terrible for the Republican Party. Or is it? What is so bad about party division?
The media has been crazy lately. CNN has been talking about gun control 24/7. People are calling for action! People are calling for action! We hear again and again from almost every media outlet, from almost every single Democratic senator. People are calling for action! And the Democrats act. They filibuster; they hold a… Read more »
Scalia is dead. Congress is fighting over who will replace him. Who should we pick? Do we want a legal pragmatist who will create a more activist court? Or do we want a legal formalist, in the same vein as the late Justice Scalia, who will limit judicial activism?
On May 13, 2016, the Department of Education released a guidance letter titled “Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students.” This is the most recent in the rapidly expanding list of transgender bathroom legislation. Timeline: 1972 – Title IX enacted 1975 – Education Regulation (34 C.F.R. 106.33) promulgated March 23, 2016 – North Carolina passes its… Read more »
I have been watching CNN daily for over two weeks now. During this time, CNN’s coverage centered almost exclusively on the election, and almost exclusively on Donald Trump—his bad points and bad things he did.
