I used to get National Review

Like, the dead-tree version.  I used to have it delivered to my mailbox.  So did my father.  But after the election, I didn't want to subscribe to a magazine that called me everything but a white boy, and did so in a sneering, condescending tone reminiscent of Chuck Schumer on the Senate floor.

So when I read something like this, I figure that it's a good thing I cancelled my subscription while the gettin' was good.

Appearing Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Williamson attacked working- and middle-class Americans for daring to commit the thought crime of believing that the American government should actually serve Americans’ interests. 
Working-class and middle-class Americans don’t have any legitimate complaints about the modern world — they’re just bigots expressing “status anxiety,” according to Williamson. “I think it’s status anxiety. You have a situation in which you have men, particularly blue-collar men, looking at the myth of what working-class life was like in the post-war era, 1950s and 1960s … this story, that’s not entirely true, that you could just get out of high school and go to a factory, make enough money to support a family and buy a house,” Williamson said.

People like Kevin Williamson are why I no longer give a damn what credentials you have or what degree you have.  Because someone with the degrees and credentials of Kevin Williamson can still be a fucking idiot.  If you want proof, take a look at Kevin Williamson.

Add him to the list of people who hates the country in-between I-5 and I-95.  And he's supposedly a "conservative".  Who has not and cannot conserve a damn thing.  In fact, about the only thing he can do is roll over and do what the Democrats tell him to do.  Thank God I'm not paying money for any more of his bullshit.  National Review needs to die off, and do so soon.  It's painful to watch them flail about.  It's almost watching someone who used to be a good friend, who's now infected with some zombie virus.  It kinda looks like your old pal, but you know it's just the animated corpse, shambling along mindlessly.

Never heard of this guy, nor would I pay him much attention. ALL of the opinion people have long lost any relevancy. Media , be it tv or radio preaches to a choir. I cringe when listening to talk radio hear a caller massage the hosts credentials, telling that person, they see the world properly and are spreading the word. The cable tv people might as well be playing with each other under the desks. Conservatism is a lie as is liberalism as are most -isms. Leave people alone, have a flat tax and the world will do just fine.
As I was told as a youth, if they aren't paying the bills, or giving you sex or both , then they can F off.

"It's almost watching someone who used to be a good friend, who's now infected with some zombie virus."

And it's going to require the same solution the zombie movies have.

Tick, tick, tick.

Yep. I've had military officers describe, in detail, how to destroy LA. And it doesn't involve sending troops into the city, trust me.

The fact that you have commissioned officers of the US Army openly discussing how to destroy a major military city should make the Democrats who control those cities take pause.
