I think he’ll take more black votes away from Biden than from Trump.
…and the Second Amendment. No, the Second Amendment wasn’t about helping round up escaped slaves. What monumental historical ignorance to think it was.
Is there a more pretentious name in news than what ABC calls the assorted idiots it has on This Week to opine? There was no one even remotely conservative on it this morning, though they probably still imagine that Matthew Dowd is, just because the hack worked for G. W. Bush.

We have ribs in the smoker, and I’ve been doing odds and ends around the house (including laying conduit and PVC for power and water of a new irrigation system). I want to wish as happy a holiday as possible under the circumstances to all of my readers. If you’ve never done it (or even if you have), I recommend reading the Declaration aloud; too few understand what this is all about, particularly given the state of our educational system. I also recommend reading Coolidge’s speech on the sesquicentennial. It seems more timely than ever, and is one of the best of its breed.

A great essay on the current culture war.
…is racist. I mean, yes, it has to be, since it happened under Woodrow Wilson.
…of the new war on wrongthink. Plus thoughts on Trump’s narcissism, which if he loses, will be the reason.
…and his gang of untouchables.
We’ll see if Durham manages to touch them.
