My weekend column and other thoughts

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 22:03:09 +0000

My weekend column for the local media outlet, the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available and it focuses on the contempt too many politicians—both left and right—have for our constitution. I think we’d have a much less divided and contentious nation if there was less government meddling in places where it has no constitutional sanction. The [...]

Dawn Ortiz-Legg continued

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 06:05:14 +0000

My column in this week’s San Luis Obispo Tribune addresses a TV ad from local Assembly candidate Democrat Dawn Ortiz-Legg attacking her GOP opponent Jordan Cunningham. Ms. Ortiz-Legg was kind enough to spend about 20 minutes on the phone addressing various issues of interest to me. Gun control Ortiz-Legg’s website has a single paragraph devoted to [...]

Media Bias, Part Eleventy-Billion

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 18:26:28 +0000

On Twitter yesterday, Sarah Quinlan posted a couple of pictures to some tweets from the supposedly non-partisan Associated Press. Instead we are provided with yet another example of subtle media bias. Unfortunately, like just about every other mainstream media publication, the Associated Press is staffed by journalists who are overwhelmingly liberal, hence this tweet: BREAKING: [...]

Black Lives Matter is Getting Black People Killed

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:01:33 +0000

The Black Lives Matter movement is getting black people, and police officers, killed. The groundwork was laid with Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who jumped  Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman for following him. Martin was straddling Zimmerman, raining down blows on his head when Zimmerman managed to draw his gun and shoot his attacker. Although [...]

Reality is inconvenient

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 15:38:05 +0000

It was predictable, really. It didn’t take but a few moments after I published the rest of my weekend column that the SLO Tribune wouldn’t publish for a feminist to decide that reality is inconvenient. Seeing my warning for young women to refrain from getting inebriated, and if they do, stay close to female friends, a [...]

What the Tribune won’t publish

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 16:13:08 +0000

For those of you reading my column in this morning’s paper, it might seem oddly short. I didn’t get lazy and simply choose to not use my allotted number of words; the Tribune editors refused to publish the majority of my column. While my liberal counterpart Tom Fulks can, with almost disturbing regularity, lash out at [...]

Maintaining the narrative

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 15:50:46 +0000

I usually read tech/science site Ars Technica a couple of times a day. They generally do good reporting  except when it comes to climate science—they’re all-in on catastrophic anthropogenic global warming and it’s not even funny. However, on the rare occasions when tech reporting crosses paths with politics, they’re all about maintaining the narrative. Case [...]

Media Bias, Illustrated

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 01:15:33 +0000

I’ve been less interested in media bias this election cycle mostly because #NeverTrump. I don’t want readers to be mistaken that my criticism as to how his orangeness is treated by the media is a defense of the cheeto jesus. But this is getting ridiculous. The most interesting, and substantive, bit of news out of the [...]

Veto Gunmageddon

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 15:36:52 +0000

My column in this week’s San Luis Obispo Tribune highlights the effort by California gun owners to exercise a citizens veto over the dumb-as-a-bag-of-hammers “common sense” gun control laws passed this summer by our betters in Sacramento. Proponents have titled the effort: Veto Gunmageddon. I’ve already signed the petitions, but for those who are interested in [...]
