Why Do They Hate Us?

Pissed off transexual

First, let’s define terms. Who is “they?” They are leftists, liberals, snowflakes, the cultural Marxists. In the old days, Marxists thought they’d start an economic and cultural revolution appealing to the oppressed workers of the world. They found their progress checked when they brought their failed philosophy to countries with capitalist economies. Who could have …

The Menace That Is Islam

Muslim woman

This article is a compilation of quotes found in The Islam in Islamic Terrorism by Ibn Warraq with my comments added.  I acknowledge that there are Muslim scholars and other knowledgeable persons who do not accept the view of Islam as a fundamentally violent religion whose goal is to convert or subvert every person on …

When I Became a Nationalist

In every life, there are events in times and places that stand out as formative in one’s outlook on life, in one’s very core philosophy of existence. One of mine came as I walked across Spain on one of the Caminos de Santiago. I walked the Camino Catalan from Montserrat, a monastery near Barcelona. For …

That Race and IQ Thing…

Here we are in the land of the free and home of the brave in 2019 and there are ideas you are not allowed to think, much less vocalize.  Specifically, you’re not allowed to ask if there a measurable difference in average IQ between any two races.

My lineage goes back to royalty (as does that of countless millions of others, ho-hum), so I have readily available information to allow me to trace my genealogy through Europe for many centuries. Prior to that, my ancestors were from the Middle East, …

Flamenco in Granada

Originally published Saturday, November 15, 2014 Living in a tourist destination takes some getting used to.

Spanish Lessons

Originally posted Thursday, October 13, 2013 It’s been a pretty boring time in the Pacific Northwest, where I find myself these days. Not much to write about. I get up and go to work every weekday, I take a guitar lesson every other Saturday, and I’ve begun sitting in on flamenco cante (song) lessons on Sundays. I …

Road Trip

17 June, 2018 By any reasonable standards, purchasing a ticket to Malaga last night was foolish. I’m not only broke, I’m disastrously in debt. But then I thought of this quote from one of the greatest movies of all time: Boon: Jesus. What’s going on? Hoover: They confiscated everything, even the stuff we didn’t steal. …
