Our new President-Elect Donald Trump tweeting the following: Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2016 This singular tweet shows what a genius Trump is by how he leads the news cycle. It also how hypocritical and many times downright dumb many people are. First, I don’t care about flag burning. I do believe that if we have true freedom of speech, then that ought to allow burning of the flag. However I also know that
I hold a degree in journalism. Never truly used it to do real, actual journalism. I do respect the profession, though, and while real journalism has been on the decline since the 90s, it’s Hillary Clinton that has driven a stake through its heart. Journalism is currently on life support. Real journalism, not fluff pieces, hit pieces, op-eds, or movie reviews, only exists these days via online entities. Sometimes they’re entities that are semi-corporate, such as Brietbart, but mostly they’re individuals like Mike Cernovich, or sites like WeSearchr. At the dawn of the television era, Americans wouldn’t tolerate corporate
Some of you PlayStation 4 players may realize that as I write this, The Last of Us is on sale for $9.99 on the US PlayStation Network. If you’re not a gamer, please keep reading, because this post isn’t about games. But spoilers abound, so you’ve been warned. Playing through TLOU was an amazing experience. It centered around an older man, Joel, whose daughter was killed at the beginning of a zombie-like invasion, and Ellie, who seems to be about 14-16 years old and is needing Joel to take her across the country to help find a cure.

I just finished watching RooshV’s Press Conference after he canceled an official Return of Kings meetup. One of the things that Roosh says over and over again is that the people in the room (the media) are liars. Like I said, I watched the press conference. So I figured I would look at how the media themselves covered it. From Roosh V: Controversial ‘pick-up artist’ declares himself ‘the most hated man in the world’ in secret press conference: Standing up for Bill Cosby, Roosh V also said the rape allegations were “weird” and claimed he didn’t think his accusers were
A couple of nights ago I went to see Disney’s Maleficent with my girl. This is one of very few movies aimed at women that I wanted to see. I knew that I probably wouldn’t like the story, but that I likely would like looking at Angelina Jolie, as well as the pretty awesome visual effects. And of course I didn’t like the story. But it was for a reason that I didn’t expect and admittedly should have. I’ve criticized fairy tales for a long, long time. I’ve always thought that they communicated unrealistic things to little girls–that message
Sarah Silverman recently participated in the . I watched the roast and loffed and LOLed throughout most of it. And I don’t even like James Franco all that much. In order to participate in a roast, you have to have a very thick skin. It’s not only the honoree that gets roasted but anyone on the dais is fair game. Sarah Silverman was on the dais that night, and jokes were made about the fact that Sarah is no spring chicken. Here are some of the lines from Jonah Hill: Sarah Sliverman…everyone’s like ‘she’s hot for a comic’, but
The manosphere is abuzz with the news that amazing commenter Mark Minter has gotten engaged. I have very mixed feelings about this, but I skew towards mostly negative thoughts. I tweeted to Roosh that I felt like a hero died today. I feel very much like I did seeing what happened to Ned Stark in Game of Thrones Season 1. Mark Minter started laying truth down late last year and unlike Heartiste/Roissy, Roosh and others Mark seemed to be older and bitten by the very bitter experience of having been in a loveless marriage and having kids who
What does a 16-year-old British girl Aimee Nicholls think of the Family Court System?
In my interview with Daniel Weible, I mentioned how people who have been adversely affected by long, drawn out family court battles (usually the men wanting rights to their kids) have this calm anger about them. They’ve been beaten down and seem emotionless, almost robotic, but there is angry passion there. They’ve just been taught how not to show it.
Aimee here has that same anger and calmness. I recognized it within the first few seconds of the video and was able to empathize immediately.
“I think family law is not in my best interests,” is one of the best, most damning quotes I’ve ever heard on the family court system due to who is saying it above. Aimee says she loves her father and mother equally but that she believes her father is the better parent and has fought for years in order to live with him. And according to her now that she’s gotten her way the system is bankrupting her dad while keeping them both from her seven-year-old sister.
Keep fighting the good fight, Aimee! You’re an inspiration to continue to expose this awful anti-man system.
I was just witness to what I consider to be an alarming type of tattoo fails and had to share my disgust. Faithful listeners of my podcast know that I went to see Rob Van Dam perform comedy last night. Except for the speeding ticket on the 70-mile drive home, I had a good time overall. (Tip: Comedy clubs are usually places where good times are to be had.) There were 7 or 8 comics on the lineup total. All were men except for one. And not one, but two of these guys had something that I hadn’t seen before,
I’m the type of guy who views the new year as an opportunity to reevaluate life and habits and take corrective action. Like many people I tend to bite off more than I can chew but that’s OK as long as I make a sincere effort to correct what I think is wrong in my life. For a while now I’ve had the idea to stop using Facebook. I find myself loading the site or the app on my phone out of sheer boredom and habit instead of true curiosity of what my friends and family are up to.
