Why is our society obsessed with flaws in successful people but turns a blind eye to outrageous acts of evil perpetrated by the so-called “disadvantaged,” who in fact actively “disadvantage” themselves and those around them on a daily basis? Check out this episode!
I discuss some recent stories which say very troubling things about our criminal justice system: The mass shooter in Texas should have already been in prison for life, a Missouri man commits his fourth murder after “paying his debt to society” for the first three, and a 23 year old out on parole steals a car at gunpoint for a half-hour joyride in Chicago. Prisoners guilty of violent crime have a 71% chance of rearrest within 5 years. Good enough? Disgustingly far from it. Check out this episode!
I discuss the horrific shooting in Texas as well as the problem with secular thought (and I’m secular, so it’s a sore subject). I also discuss two influential people who came to realize that commonsense gun control solutions were common sense, but weren’t solutions. And I discuss that even George McGovern later regretted his leftwing stance on regulation while in office. All of this adds up to the following: As people get older and wiser, they move righter.

Sleep-deprived after a long day’s travel, I come to you with an important message: Don’t go to Greenland or Iceland unless you have to in order to meet your in-laws. No other valid excuse exists. Also, ideas matter; Islam appears to prevent suicide (but encourages murder). What you believe makes more of a difference to your life than almost anything, including money; poverty can’t cause you to run down New Yorkers, but ideas sure can. Check out this episode!
I’m still in Iceland, which is expensive and quite inhospitable for human existence. But this show focuses on the realization made by a young BBC reporter that Islamism cannot coexist with liberalism. I also discuss that British authorities in Rotherham failed to stop rape over more than a decade for fear of seeming racist. Hysterias always have a cost, and our current racism hysteria is no exception. Check out this episode!
I make the case that organ sales should be legal; People endure discomfort, disease, and death because letting people sell organs is icky to many. It shouldn’t be. Check out this episode!
I discuss nice, sturdy note cards, John Kelly’s moving remarks about calling the widows of dead soldiers, and Robert Mugabe’s short-lived role as spokesmonster for the WHO. Also Michael Wilbon is a drama-queen idiot. Check out this episode!
Trevor Noah has figured out the TRUE reason Republicans are always yacking about the windy city: President Obama is from here sort of! Check out this episode!
I am delighted to bring you the great Theodore Dalrymple, author of many wonderful books including “Life at the Bottom.” Check out this episode!
My brother Jesse joins me to discuss recent statements (and a book) by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Also, I accuse him of misusing a word but am not entirely sure I was right. Check out this episode!
