Why not equip all vehicles with back-up alarms?

In parking lots, while walking behind vehicles back to my own, I have almost been struck by some whose drivers couldn’t see me till they were just starting to back up, as I was reaching the back end of their vehicles. I have also been in the same situation as a driver, with someone walking behind my car just as I’m starting to back up.

Thinking about this, I wonder, why shouldn’t all vehicles, not just large vehicles such as tractor-trailers and heavy machinery, come with back-up alarms? I’m sure it would save a few lives, and drivers’ licences.

Notes on “The True History of the American Revolution”

Sounds like a worthwhile read. As a reactionary Canadian, and therefore a partisan of the Redcoats and the United Empire Loyalists, this sounds a lot more balanced than the usual hagiography from American historians about the American Revolution.

If, like me, you’ve always had a hard time squaring the narrative of the American Revolution with the requirements of common sense, you might get something out of Sydney George Fisher’s “The True History of the American Revolution.” Writing around 1900 (i.e. before the establishment of the American Imperium), Fisher tackles the conflict by going back to the original sources, and divesting himself of the bullshit. In Fisher’s telling, the Revolution was an extension into the New World of Whig-Tory political jockeying, one which allowed the Patriot colonists to opportunistically impose their will on their countrymen. In this version of the Revolution the Patriots come off not as noble idealists, but as proto-SJWs. They can’t be appeased, because they don’t want to be appeased, and all of their spoutings about the Rights of Man are resorts to the most self-serving kind of sophistry. Fisher:

Quote Du Jour: The Most Useless and Unproductive of All Forms of Reflection

Great quote from a great book.

Uncouth Reflections

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

It is the natural result of the whig historian’s habits of mind and his attitude to history — though it is not a necessary consequence of his actual method — that he should be interested in the promulgation of moral judgements and should count this as an important part of his office. His preoccupation is not difficult to understand when it is remembered that he regards himself as something more than an inquirer. By the very finality and absoluteness with which he was endowed the present he has heightened his own position. For him the voice of posterity is the voice of God and the historian is the voice of posterity. And it is typical of him that he tends to regard himself as the judge when by his methods and his equipment he is fitted only to be the detective. His concerns with the sphere of…

Siberian serenades sweetheart from a dangling van

Alpha or beta? Romantic, anyway, I guess…

A young man in the Siberian city of Biysk has made up with his girlfriend in spectacular fashion by serenading her from a van – suspending by a crane outside her third-floor bedroom window.

Neighbours on Leningradskaya Street took to the Vkontakte social media site to report a lorry with a crane hoisting the van high into the rainy morning sky, with some hoping the police would “stick it” to the driver when they turned up.

But it gradually dawned that this was a special occasion, as the van was decorated with balloons. And when Yelena Gorbunova opened her window to see what was going on, she came face to face with her ex-sweetheart Alexander bearing flowers, gifts and a card to mark her 29th birthday, while a saxophonist below played her favourite song – the Aerosmith hit Dream On.

She told Russia’s Metro newspaper that Alexander “often surprises me with presents, but never before like this!” She said they split up three weeks earlier after going steady for a year, and the romantic gesture has persuaded her to “make up with him”.


 
Well, good luck to them.

Dream on! 🙂

Millennial Chick Can’t Stop Having Sex with Trump Supporters

Hilarious.

Of course, she could, if she’d stop being a slut, but that’s impossible for millennial progs.

 

Dreher slammed

Bam!

As the delightful giggles on crunchy-con Twitter indicate, Rod Dreher is very pleased that the forthcoming French translation of his most popular and lucrative work, The Benedict Option, was at least temporarily trending this week as the No. 1 book on Amazon.fr.

Having made the rounds in the American press this year, it was apparent to all that Dreher’s Benedict Option is a white flag in the culture wars. Dreher’s main point in the book is that “serious Christian conservatives” are no longer able to live “business-as-usual lives in America.” After making a rally during the reign of George W. Bush, Christians and other social conservatives have suffered defeat after defeat in the Obama era.

As a result, Dreher suggests that Christians completely cede the public sphere to the left, retreating into “intentional communities” of conservative Christians living, working, praying, and studying together. In The Benedict Option, Rod Dreher provides the examples of Catholic schools implementing a classical curriculum in Elk County, Pennsylvania, and the olive-farming members of the Italian Tipi Loschi community as models for the “hands on localism” of which the Benedict Option consists. Dreher’s hope is that unlike the French, Mexican, and Bolshevik revolutions and the Spanish Civil War, this time the left will largely leave Christians alone to procreate with abandon, attend the Latin mass, and homeschool lots of homophobic and racist kids.

Dreher might be a little neurotic and too revealing of his personal life, but he is not an idiot. He knows that his crunchy-con, overwhelmingly white Christian audience won’t stand a chance in a 21st-century America seething with ethnic tension under the umbrella of an increasingly totalitarian and coercive state that does not take lightly dissent from its doctrine of degenerate sexuality.

During his tenure at The American Conservative, Rod Dreher has made a living vacillating between liberal and conservative positions and has mastered the art of penning gushing, effeminate blog posts for consumption by equally neurotic, left-leaning conservative Christian women with secretly gay husbands.

When he is not white-shaming, boasting of his 0.6% black ancestry, or wearing outrageously ornate eyeglasses and women’s boots, Dreher spends his columns (often filled with more copy-and-pasted writings of other people than his own thoughts) taking his readers on an interminable emotional roller coaster back and forth between white guilt and pride in “the Western tradition” (depending on the week). Like a therapist who profits from his patients never getting better, Dreher has no real solution to any of the critiques he presents, because if he did, the drama would be over and millennial crunchy cons would not be able to share a cry with Rod over coffee and Ativan in the morning.

Maybe a bit over the top, but Dreher has certainly brought this on himself. 🙂
