In the last 60 or so years aviation has gone from (1) putting men on the moon to barely keeping airplanes in the air without near-miss incidents every year; (2) having a reusable space shuttle program that was the envy of the world to hitching a ride from the Russians to their space station instead relying on our own mettle; (3) flying the Concorde (1960s technology) to nothing comparable to it in passenger service today; (4) building the finest aircraft ever (the Boeing 757) to being unable to build a new airplane that doesn't have serious safety problems. What accounts for this downward trend?

At least the government can be held accountable to a certain extent for violating the First Amendment. Corporations don't want to take any responsibility to protect free speech.

Dr. Jordan Peterson and his superb interlocutor — words cannot do this interview justice. This is probably the best interview with Dr. Peterson I have seen thus far.

In the old Soviet Union a certain comrade Petrov Petrovich walks to a car dealership on a wintry morning in Leningrad pushing a wheelbarrow full of cash. "I'd like a new car!” Petrov huffs as he struggles to get himself and his cash inside, out of the freezing cold. Anatoly the salesman says, "A new car? Surely you must be joking. A new car costs 20,000 rubles and it will take 10 years to build." "That's fine,” Petrov replies, "Here's your 20,000 rubles,” pointing to the wheelbarrow, "and I will be here exactly 10 years from today to collect the car. By the way, morning or afternoon?" Anatoly answers, "What difference does it make? It's 10 years from now." Petrov Petrovich dryly answers, "Ah yes, well comrade, I have the plumber in the morning."

Tired of hearing about a so-called "insurrection." There was no "insurrection" on January 6, 2021. President Trump did not cause an "insurrection." He has not been indicted (i.e. formally accused) or convicted of any "insurrection," and there has been no legal finding-of-fact that an "insurrection" ever took place. The "insurrection" narrative is, like Charlottesville, another big lie perpetrated by the media and the Left — it just didn't happen. President Trump is eligible to run for president in 2024, and I'm hopeful that the United States Supreme Court will agree.

Notions that black should move first in chess to promote "equality," or that chess is somehow "sexist" because the "queen does all the work" or "when the king dies the game is over" are stupid. The game of chess has nothing to do with either race or sex, and only foolish people believe otherwise.

There is an interesting conclusion to be drawn from Dennis Prager's call to stop flying United: we don't do affirmative action in the NBA, because in professional sports, winning is everything. But United Airlines does affirmative action in the cockpit, even though in the cockpit safety is supposed to be everything. Unless we Americans vote against UA with our feet and with our wallets, we will have confirmed that American society believes winning a basketball game is more important to us than aviation safety — let that sink in.
