The US Congress is rife with nasty, selfish, cruel, vicious people, liars and cheats who think themselves the rulers of the American people rather than their hired hands.  Among the worst is Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).  In Chuck Schumer: Republicans Covet His Praise?  back in 2017, I wrote of some of his egregiously terrible behavior.  Enter “chuck schumer” into the SMM homepage search bar to find more of my writings on this particularly nasty piece of work.

Uh, because Zoom is a Chinese Communist spying app.?

I have seen, of late, various memes to the effect of: “with schools closed, we’re seeing we don’t need them at all.”  Glib, but short-sighted and mostly false.  The response to the Coronavirus has revealed that a great many things once though to be of the utmost importance aren’t important at all.  Those possessed of common sense have always known this.  We live in the most advanced and prosperous society ever, and that gives frivolous, entitled, hysterical people license to make lunatic demands that are actually taken seriously—until we’re reminded just how fragile civilization can be.

Gropin’ Joe Biden: Believe This Woman?

There has been a “credible” accusation of rape against former Vice President Joe Biden.  I write “credible,” because we are in a brave new world, a world constructed by D/S/Cs where all women must absolutely be believed, particularly when their accusations, no matter how implausible, are lodged against Republicans.  On the rare occasions when a woman goes off the reservation and accuses a D/S/C they, and their accusations, must be buried.  As Kurt Schlichter said, in the case of Joe Biden, they’re not going to like the new rules they’ve imposed on us all.

In times of pseudo-crisis, people’s true character—actually, usually their lack thereof—comes to the fore, so take a moment as you shelter in place, hide, cringe in a corner, whine, or merely enjoy your pets enjoying you enjoying a bit of time off and read on for the humorous, the absurd, and the political, which is actually pretty much all of the above.

This article focuses on the general characteristics of revolvers and semi-automatic handguns.  I’m making the assumption readers contemplating what I’ve had to say in the first nine installments intend to do more than purchase a firearm exclusively for home defense.  Our lives don’t lose their value outside the home–though some “gun safety” laws embody that bizarre idea–-and one is, depending on a variety of factors, arguably more, rather than less, likely to need to defend their life—or the lives of others–-outside their home.

Erik Scott

In our connected world, we make previously unimaginable connections.  We make friends we will never meet, yet those friendships grow and are, in most ways, as real as those that enjoy personal contact.  We learn about the lives of others from far away, and their stories become a part of us.  Such was the case with Erik Scott and me.

In the first three installments of this series (enter “the tyranny of testing” into the SMM homepage search bar), I explained some of the many negative effects of mandatory, high-stakes testing.  In this article, I’ll focus on the history of this testing craze and explain why testing has very little to do with education.
