Last refuge of a liberal

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

The last refuge of a liberal. Key quote:

The Democrats are going to get beaten badly in November. Not just because the economy is ailing. And not just because Obama over-read his mandate in governing too far left. But because a comeuppance is due the arrogant elites whose undisguised contempt for the great unwashed prevents them from conceding a modicum of serious thought to those who dare oppose them.



  • Al

    I can’t wait for November. I just hope the defeat is crushing enough so that even the “intellectuals” will get it.

  • LINO---Lloyd in name only

    I can’t wait for November, either. Politics and all its trappings will be submerged in the pursuit of a greater good: The Breeders Cup Classic.
    There are no intellectuals in horse racing. Only $2 mobs of the great unwashed—looking to become $4 mobs. I will be there for the scrubbing.

    A new Party will need to emerge. The Democrats and Republicans have each had their chance on the stage and have not delivered.

    I suspect a radical new moderate leader will need to arise and shock the status quo.
    Who will lead the unscrubbed masses into the Promised Land?

    Alas, Obama will not. However, Zenyatta will be standing up proudly for females everywhere.

    Don’t Tread on Me!
    (I bruise easily)
