The Liberty Zone

Rob wrote a great piece last night eviscerating David Shephard’s condemnation of conservatives who actually stand on principles on the Bull Elephant. You should really go read Rob’s fisk. He uses big words, and he didn’t drop the F-bomb even once! (Note: this is why I will never write for an actual news source or political site again. Too much effort to constrain my cursing.)

Shephard, whose claim to fame is apparently being a lobbyist in Richmond, claims that the House Freedom Caucus and its “conservative” members were never meant to be legislators, because they apparently never influence policy (Except for tanking the GOP’s shit show of a health care bill, of course. You’re welcome.) They should just hang out in think tanks and attend luncheons, proclaims a snot-nosed millennial whose contribution to the economy is lobbying and consulting.

If my eyes rolled back any harder, I’d need…

Open letter to “feminists”

19 Mar

The Liberty Zone

Dear Femtard Morons –

Yes, I call you this, and I’ve put “feminist” in quotes as the title of this post, implying you’re frauds, because you can hardly be compared to the strong, free, independent women who are your predecessors and who paved the way for women’s equal rights. The only thing you have in common with these heroes are your vaginas…

… and even that’s no longer a guarantee, given that there are those among you ho were born with a penis, but have claimed your gender as your own.

For the record, I don’t consider you simpering, triggered, vacuous, perpetually offended, pussy hat-wearing femtards, hiding behind your plumbing (or in some cases bathing in mea culpas for the crime of being born with male “privilege”) and eschewing actual accomplishments and hard work, feminists.

You want to be considered strong without actually working to become so.

You want recognition…

The Liberty Zone

This is a totally non-political post. It’s my exploration of our dynamics with our significant partners, because this is something Rob and I discuss on occasion, and we’ve never agreed on. So now, you’ve been warned. If you are here to discuss politics today, you might want to veer somewhere else.

However, this discussion is more sociological, and it could very quickly veer into politics. Because everything does.

Rob has always contended that I’m a rarity in the sea of females: apparently I’m not crazy. I dispute this, as I have my own sort of crazy qualities, but that said, the general perception among men about women seems to be:

  1. Insecure
  2. Needy
  3. Contradictory

Women, according to my husband, and many other men I know, want a bad boy – someone whom they can tame, and brag about domesticating, so to speak, which gives them validation and an ego boost. “Hey…

Don’t fall for the ‘Steve Bannon’ Facebook message about Obama & Co. heading to prison

8 Mar

Fellowship of the Minds

Stephen “Steve” Bannon is President Trump’s White House Chief Strategist and the former executive chair of Breitbart News.

There’s an email circulating among conservatives that on March 5, 2017, this message was posted on a Facebook page called “Steve Bannon”:

I wouldn’t be surprised if by the end of President Trump’s first term you see multiple people from Barack Obama’s administration, if not he himself, in Federal prison. The level of corruption being uncovered right now will rock the nation.

Don’t fall for it.

That is not Bannon’s Facebook page.

The account is very recent; its oldest post was published about a month ago on January 30, 2017.

Bannon does not have a Facebook page. And although he does have a Twitter account @StephenBannon (note that it’s Stephen, not Steve), he seems to have abandoned it because the last tweet was more than 2½ years ago, on August 21, 2014.

    Holbert L. Harris Chair of Economics at George Mason University

    Katherine Mangu-Ward

    Editor in Chief at Reason
    Restlessness, ambition, and innovation are key American traits. But today, Americans are working harder than ever to avoid change.  In The Complacent Class (St. Martin’s Press, February 2017), a follow-up to the New York Times best-selling book The Great Stagnation, Tyler Cowen explores our desire to become more insulated, comfortable, and accepting of the status quo.  Americans are moving less, starting fewer businesses, marrying people more like ourselves, and choosing as much as we can based on algorithms that wall us off from anything that might be too new or different. As a result, we could see a version of America that is more segregated, more unequal, and no longer the leader of tomorrow’s greatest achievements.
    Please join the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a live interview with Reason‘s  Katherine Mangu-Ward and Tyler Cowen on this phenomenon and what it means for the future of politics, the economy, and the very foundation of our culture. According to Malcolm Gladwell, “His brilliant new book…has been on my nightstand after I devoured it in one sitting. I am at round-the-clock Cowen saturation right now.”
    Copies of the book will be available for sale after the discussion. For questions, please contact Martha Anderson at To read more about the book or pre-order a copy, visit

Event Speakers

Chandran Kukathas 

Chair in Political Theory and Head of Department, the London School of Economics and Political Science
State control over immigration is often taken for granted in today’s policy discussions. Many see the value in welcoming highly skilled and wealthy immigrants but want to restrict the migration of others. Yet who is really affected by immigration laws aimed at keeping out unwanted migrants? Can a free society really limit the movement and activities of foreigners within its borders without impacting the freedoms of its own citizens?
Please join the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a keynote lecture with Professor Chandran Kukathas on the impact that immigration law has on citizens. Kukathas’ work examines the burden and limitations that strict immigration laws place on citizens.
