  1. Re: The Toxicity of Luxury Beliefs and the Liberal Elite in 21st Century America

    You don’t take the post seriously yet you felt the need to respond with some low-effort gainsaying about the “far right?” That is ironic. Thanks for providing another example of what I’m talking...

  3. Re: Baby Formula and the Defense Production Act

    Ok. I was addressing the political aspects of systemic dependence on a handful of producers and use of the DPA, since “why do people use baby formula” is a rather silly and mostly medical question,...
  4. Re: Baby Formula and the Defense Production Act

    Not much of a story here. Just big government “solving” a problem it caused and scapegoating whichever business interests that presumably failed to pay enough protection money to the right people....

    Huh? Anyway, yeah, Musk is very political if Elon Musk Inc is a political party. This is a guy who routinely shills Chicom talking points about how they’re going to dwarf the US economy soon because...

    Re: NATO: Turkey vs. Sweden/Finland

    The irony is modern Turkey, like Russia, is a parody of its historical self with a vastly overinflated sense of its geopolitical clout. Like Putin’s sheepish capitulation that perhaps NATO expansion...
  9. Re: The Toxicity of Luxury Beliefs and the Liberal Elite in 21st Century America

    I’m fairly certain the talking heads - those claiming Musk’s potential takeover was motivated by nostalgia for apartheid, posed a threat to “marginalized communities,” and even attempts by leftist...

    The term is meant to be more shorthand than exhaustive. I don’t doubt European liberalism has depth and nuance to it relative to the American kind, but even that observation alludes to my overall...

  15. The Toxicity of Luxury Beliefs and the Liberal Elite in 21st Century America

    That’s an awful lot of projection for someone defending Muslim zealots whilst insisting upon apostasy. Perhaps you should have thought this through? Or maybe it’s not so funny anymore?

    I’m not Muslim so I’m not interested in defending hadiths. As I said, I’ve simply refuted your claims that Mohammed’s marriage and sex with a child is false, deceitful or otherwise libelous. I also...

    Rejecting an authentic hadith is widely considered unislamic, which again, is fine by me, but probably not by the sort of folks who assault people for acknowledging Mohamed’s pedophilia. Why laugh...
  30. Re: Female Christian activist attacked at ‘Speakers Corner’ (London)...
