The Butterfield Effect – Taxes – and Media Ignorance

Seven years ago, I wrote about the “Butterfield Effect,” which is a term used to mock clueless journalists. A former reporter for the New York Times, Fox Butterfield, became a bit of a laughingstock in the 1990s for publishing a series of articles addressing the supposed quandary of how crime rates could be falling during […]

Enemies of the State

In your wildest dreams would you think that if this were a Republican administration asking people to snitch on those who opposed it the dead-stream media would be drenching their monitors with spittle-flecked rage?

So here I am Mr. Messiah.  I oppose you too.

The Great Liberal Panemonium Machine

The Mexican swine flu pandemic? Oh, that’s soooo yesterday. Global Warming? All those confident “scientific” predictions are falling apart around the world, even as greedy politicians still try to squeeze the last little drops of power and money out of them. Human flesh-eating bacteria? SARS? Ozone holes? Mad Cow? The Curse of the Killer Tomatoes? Water torture? CO2? Bee Colony Collapse? It never ends. As long as scare stories sell, as long as millions of indoctrinated suckers fall for them they will never end. They’ve got you on a rat-running wheel, running scared every day, like rats scrambling to get away from electrical shocks that never actually come.

The Left rules by constant fear, but none of its predicted catastrophes come true. Ever notice that? Instead, we do have real things to worry about, all right — but half of them are the results of the Media Pandemonium Machine itself. Like one third of the little kids in our world who are now convinced — by cynical or deluded adults — that they won’t live long enough to enjoy a healthy adulthood. That is a terrible burden imposed on little children by the Left, in its never-ending grab for power.
There is an element of sadistic cruelty in the Leftist Pandemonium Machine. “Pandemonium” is the imaginary Hell of devils, and there is something truly demonic about the torrent of media madness we have to tolerate every day.
The Great Liberal Pandemonium Machine is spreading disease, all right, but it’s a psychiatric disease — of unjustified fear, depression, and despair.
there are some very realistic dangers — like terrorists blowing up a chunk of Manhattan or getting nuclear weapons.
