Good News: Exercise Is Rooted In White Supremacy History

The smart thing for the editor at Time Magazine should have been to say “you really wrote a piece on this with that headline?” then hit delete and tell Olivia B. Waxman to write something that is not stupid. Because the headline is based literally on her first paragraph The White Supremacist Origins of Exercise, […]

Progressive Tolerance: Simon & Schuster Employees Demand Company Cut Ties With Trump Admin Authors

Remember who Liberals would tell us that they are uber-tolerant? That we must respect all points of view? That all voices are valued? That we should listen to different voices?

NJ Library Limits Books Checked Out In Order To Increase Screen Time

In all my years, I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that unintentionally mimicked a newspaper or magazine article. I’ve read, and enjoyed (and not enjoyed) fiction books that were intended to be like a non-fictional account, such as Zombie War by Nicholas Ryan (his 3 other zombie books are damned good, too). However, […]
