How Old Was Karl Marx when he Wrote Communist Manifesto?

Does anyone know that when Karl Marx co-authored “Communist Manifesto, he was 29? And Engels was 28? A g-d millennial, just like Pencil Neck, and not the grizzly-bearded old man of postage stamp fame.

Oscar Wilde on The Press, 1891

In old days men had the rack. Now they have the Press. That is an improvement certainly. But still it is very bad, and wrong, and demoralizing. Somebody — was it Burke? — called journalism the fourth estate. That was true at the time no doubt. But at the present moment it is the only estate. It has eaten up the other three. The Lords Temporal say nothing, the Lords Spiritual have nothing to say, and the House of Commons has nothing to say and says it. We are dominated by Journalism.[

All Life Is Stories

All life is stories. Some have legs, some even making it into history, whiles others last only a day or two. Still others pass as soon as we fall asleep.

Even the media has stories, only they’re found in the Fiction section of History’s library.

Don and his Manage a’ Quatre with Chuck, Mitch, Nan and Paul

Politician-Republicans are besides themselves that Donald Trump has made common cause with the Enemy, even though they know it’s because the RINO wing of their Party would never call them “the Enemy”.

Good news, I think.

There is Still Nothing Larger Than Herself, According to Hillary

In 1993 Hillary Clinton’s father died, and at age 46 HRC declared what everyone should have leaned by age 20, that “there are things larger than myself.” WRONG. Now on her last (we hope) Not-My-Fault book tour, Hillary has proved there is still nothing in the world larger than herself. To herself. The true Bedouin princess.


Full disclosure I’ve been involved in “dark alley” projects against the Left” for several years, covering various aspects of left wing official misbehavior. But I’m …

The Hebrew Slaves Chorus to Liberty- Nana Mouskouri
