We Still Haven’t Learned You Can’t Just “Solve” School Shootings
In the wake of the horrifying shooting in southern Florida, we are once again having the talk about gun violence and gun control. But, the fact that we’re “having the talk” has inevitably driven folks mad. Their argument is that if we’d just do something we can make a difference. We can find some change we can make. Maybe we should ban more guns. Or maybe we should ban fewer guns. On the Left, we have the usual suspects – the folks who will call for gun bans. These are the people who will probably never be quite satisfied with the number of things they can ban when it comes to firearms, as they don’t see the point in firearms at all. These are the people who will say “This should be banned,” and when it does get banned, something else will come up and they’ll move the goalpost again. However, on the Right, you have the people who believe that more guns will surely scare the evildoers into submission. It’s the lack of people who can fight back, they say, that encourages crazed gunners to mow down school children. In this scenario, guns not only survive liberals’ actions to ban ... read more

Trolls, Mercenaries, and Narratives — Oh My!
Russia, at times, can seem like one big rabbit hole which is a feature not a bug. As a general rule one should avoid internet rabbit holes as they are time consuming and rarely lead to any real answers. But every rule has an exception and these newly revealed facts are most certainly an exception. It feels like a Quentin Tarantino movie with the villain controlling vast internet troll armies and mercenaries in a war torn middle eastern hellhole complete with a jumbled up timeline that starts in the middle of the story. (However, it’ll be missing the gratuitous profanity because Redstate is a classy joint.)   Yesterday news broke that Department of Justice (DOJ) would indict 13 Russians which was all expected as the DOJ has been turning over every rock in sight to find out exactly what Russia’s role was in the 2016 presidential election. What slipped past even the most dedicated, pundits, observers and commentators could turn everything we’ve been told about Russia’s power and presence in Syria on its head. Strap in because this timeline is gonna jump around a bit. On February 8th, 2018, anywhere from 300 to 600 Assad loyalists launched an attack on ... read more

The Silence of the Lambs
Is there a correct way to respond to a horrific tragedy? I’m thinking, of course, about the children in a Parkland, Florida high school, randomly shot dead by a deranged young man, long known by federal and local authorities to be dangerous, and the brave adults who died protecting them. Beautiful children whose joyous voices will never again be heard. I’m not asking about an answer. A response is something quite different. An answer is rational. It’s capable of being articulated and shared, and expresses a causal relationship. A response is profoundly personal, an experience that bubbles up from the depth of our soul. In its immediacy, it resolves our puzzlement without solving it. To share it, you need something more than prose. You need metaphors, poetry, or music. So forgive and bear with me if I seem to ramble. It’s a treat for me when I come across an article by physicist and mathematician Frank Wilczek. This weekend, in the Wall Street Journal, he discusses why we haven’t heretofore encountered extraterrestrial civilizations. There are about a hundred billion stars in our galaxy — and maybe ten times as many planets and moons — more ancient than our earth, which ... read more

Trump, Republicans Go on a Spending Spree
Washington White House budget director Mick Mulvaney would not allow cameras into the briefing room as he outlined President Donald Trump’s budget to reporters. He explained, “This is going to be really, really boring and really, really hard.” The session also threatened to be really, really embarrassing to Mulvaney, a one-time GOP congressman from South Carolina who came to Washington as an uncompromising fiscal hawk. As the head of the administration’s Office of Management and Budget, Mulvaney has found himself in the unenviable position of defending a budget that — if it actually lives up to its impossible promises — stands to increase the $20 trillion national debt Trump inherited by an extra $7 trillion over the next decade. In fact, on Tuesday when a senator asked Mulvaney if, as a congressman, he would have voted for Trump’s $4.4 trillion budget for fiscal year 2019, the budget director answered he probably would not have. Later, spokeswoman Meghyn Burns released a statement that clarified: “Just to be clear, Director Mulvaney was referring to the recent caps deal when answering Senator (Patty) Murray’s question this morning. Naturally, he would vote for the President’s FY19 budget that he released yesterday.” If that ... read more
