This is an adjunct to my long-running blog at Bookworm Room. There, I talk about politics and social issues from a conservative perspective. My blog's motto is "conservatives deal with facts and reach conclusions; liberals have conclusions and sell them as facts."

1:00:43The three big topics I cover are Biden's Afghanistan failures and the left's inability to understand what's going on, COVID vaccine mandates and other pressure for a disease with a greater than 98% survival rate; and gender madness, especially the type that's targeted at children.

39:50Once again, I give my invariably strong opinions about the day's news, whether it's lying doctors, sports teams renaming themselves, the Olympics, poor Jacob Chansley, Antifa and the NYPD, the myriad failures of the governing left, Jen Psaki's snark, or a wonderful Donald Trump impersonator. Here are links to all the sites on which I relied or to which I cited. (Also, too late to do anything about it, I remembered the word for the wonder Shawn Farsh is "impersonator" not "imitator.")

50:25This podcast looks at Turning Point USA's decision to ban a porn star from one of its events; the current unattainable COVID policy allowing the government to stay in the driver's seat; the big problem Democrats are going to face with their January 6 prosecutions; why we should be dubious about anything coming from the American Academy of Pediatrics; and how we can all help America through this trying time.

45:01This marks my second attempt at a video podcast and it's still rough around the edges (especially at the end) but you get to hear me opine about social issues and politics, including Critical Race Theory, gender madness, military madness, and more.

39:42After an 18 month hiatus, I decided it was time to start podcasting again. This time, there's a slight twist, which is that I also did a video. (Don't worry, though. You don't need to watch the video to understand the podcast.) I discovered that I'm amazingly rusty when it comes to the technical aspects of all of this but I can still talk the hind leg off a donkey. Join me as I walk you through the sublime, the ridiculous, and the very serious mental journey I make every morning when I read the news. I promise that my work will improve with time. My current hope is to produce 2-3 podcasts/videos a week -- but no promise.

50:20This is the companion podcast to my post about the way Bernie and other Democrats seek to end American liberty by imposing gun control. Just today, I put up a post challenging the gun control that is dear to the hearts of Bernie (the current Democrat candidate of the week) and the other Democrat candidates. I've done a 180 since my younger days, when I too advocated gun control, and I've made this transition because I've learned that the only way a society can remain safe and free is for moral, law-abiding citizens to have the right to arm themselves. This isn't just my opinion. The data is overwhelming. If you prefer reading to listening, or if you want links to the articles and data I site, please check the companion post, which you'll find here.

47:40Over the past week, I’ve put up two posts about something that really gets my goat, which is the way in which those who contend that it’s possible to change ones gender — that is, to be “transgender” — are leading a very aggressive war against reality. In doing so, they are accidentally or deliberately partnering with Marxists to destroy Western culture. Reality will always win, but that fallout from a society’s break with reality can be terrible. If you prefer reading to listening, or if you want links to the articles I cite in Part 2 of this two-part podcast, the two posts are: 1. J.K. Rowlings’ fallout with the so-called transgender movement is instructive 2. An addendum to my previous post about the “transgender” movement

38:31Faux impeachment proceedings aren't going to help the Democrat Party faithful's deadly lack of enthusiasm; they're paralyzed by their own ineffectiveness. For three years, Democrat politicians and activists have been promising the party faithful that they'll impeach Trump. Instead, Trump's been going from one success to another, while the Democrats are left with two silly, probably unconstitutional, meaningless articles of impeachment. No wonder Democrats aren't taking to the streets anymore. They're tired, very tired.
