Almost 7 years ago, while going through some personal issues, I made a terrible mistake and ended up being convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in the State of California. It was a dark period in my life, but I have moved on and learned my lesson. This spring, however, my intoxicated driving conviction […]

I loved this comment at Lawyers, Guns and Money:
Endorsing Trump is like tying an already “whiffy” dead fish around your neck – it’s already going off, and it will just smell worse and worse, until, finally , people are disgusted to be around you. And then you have to answer the inevitable questions – Why would you tie a dead fish around your neck? Didn’t you know it would smell? Don’t you know fish goes off? Do you like the smell of rotting fish? Do you believe in wearing rotting fish? What’s wrong with you…..? But the worst thing is after weeks, you personally will no longer be able to smell the fish – it will be normal to you – and people will have to yell at you, “you smell of rotting fish! You’re disgusting!”
And finally when you want to take it off – “yech, you still smell of rotting fish … get out of here.” And once you remove the fish, you’ll start to smell it again, in your clothes, your furniture, your car – and you’ll be mortified. And before anyone will let you back into polite company you’ll have to burn your entire wardrobe, disinfect or reupholster the remaining furniture, and you’ll always have to deal with people worried about your taste for the smell of rotting fish.
That’s exactly what the Republicans are now finding out.
Even Harper wasn’t as bad, and that’s saying something.

The same anti-Obama meme that reached a million folks in 2012 will struggle to reach a quarter of that today. It’s not a conspiracy, especially when Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg told […]

2018 was the year the oil and gas industry promised that its darling, the shale fracking revolution, would stop focusing on endless production and instead turn a profit for its investors. But as the year winds to a close, it’s clear that hasn’t happened.
Instead, the fracking industry has helped set new records for U.S. oil production while continuing to lose huge amounts of money — and that was before the recent crash in oil prices.
But plenty of people in the industry and media make it sound like a much different, and more profitable, story.
Steve Sailer writes: It’s not sensible to bet the country on one educational fashion, as [Bill] Gates found in the previous decade when he wasted a fortune promoting the now-forgotten nostrum of that era, small learning communities. On the other hand, Gates is by no means stupid, and he does learn from painful experience. So […]
David Cole writes: …nor the villain his detractors assume he is. He will not be the race hero that the alt-right hopes he’ll be, nor will he be the “literally Hitler” that the left fears he is. The ideologues on both sides will be disappointed and demoralized, and bully for that.

Tim Sommer writes: Metal Box is, perhaps, Post-Punk’s signal achievement, its Pet Sounds. Metal Box, which turns 37 this month, is simply an album that blows minds, re-writes rules, decimates expectations, and, well, tells the truth. It also continually reaffirms my belief in the power of music and creativity, which is especially effective when it […]
