The Two Faces of the Deep State and “the People”

So when they say "the FBI, or DOJ or CIA said this, or did that" - your first thought should be, "Which one?" Especially if it's the media telling you these things. Also, never forget that is has been this way since at least JFK. In 1998, a man asked me to help write a book directed at the ... Read More

Diggstown, a Cult Classic from James Wood

I first saw "Diggstown" in a theater, which means I saw it in 1992 after returning from the recently-collapsed USSR. In Cincinnati.

Food for thought: Perhaps getting yourself all worked up over every week's media-approved CRISIS TO END ALL CRISES blue-plate special is sometimes premature.

What Will Scott Pruitt’s Next Job be for President Trump?

When Ronald Reagan was president I lamented that he had not done much to reduce the size and power of the federal bureaucracy. By the mid-80s it was obvious the private sector was trying to adopt the federal management design, when it should have been the other way around.

Was Hillary Clinton the Head of Her Class, or Just the Head of a Big Pimple?
