Thanksgiving Is Meant For The Bad Times As Much As The Good

Gratitude is a virtue. It’s moral and it’s healthy. Thanksgiving is a day to practice this virtue, rendering the efforts to rebrand the holiday an attack on thankfulness itself. In times of war and times of peace, there is always reason for pain. That we have a holiday dedicated to gratitude does not invalidate any of these reasons. It soothes…

Two Transgender Specialists Wonder: Has The New Orthodoxy Gone Too Far?

For nearly a decade, the transgender movement has steamrolled through American society with a façade of certainty and moral superiority no one is allowed to question. Choosing one’s gender has been the brave new frontier our children are entitled to cross, and woe to the parent, doctor, or educator who takes issue. In recent weeks, though, another major crack in…

Yes, Abortion And Transgenderism Do Have Lots In Common

Sometimes even New York Times columnists tell the truth. For instance, a recent article by Jennifer Finney Boylan was headlined “Abortion Rights and Trans Rights Are Two Sides of the Same Coin.” Yes, and the coin is currency from Hell.

Stop Calling Your Basic Friends ‘Queens’ On Social Media

Youth is essentially an exercise in observing, doing, and saying stupid stuff. From this rich soil presumably grows wisdom. This phenomenon is well and good, turning dunderheaded frat boys into respectable church deacons. However, one recent trend among the “yoot,” as my Cousin Vinnie would put it, is the compulsion to refer to one another as “queens.” It is with…

Is It Any Surprise That A Military That Believes America Is ‘Evil’ Botched The Mission In Afghanistan?

If America is as innately evil as some of our educators and “anti-racism” trainers say it is, then what business do we have being in Afghanistan, or anywhere else, for that matter?
