Your feelings mean nothing.

It’s all feelings. Nothing more than feelings. Don’t you inhibit my feelings. (You need to sing this by the way.) Feelings. I gotta get me some feelings. Everyone else has their feelings. Those feelings are so important … yeah.

Adolescence. It’s a fun time, not. But at least nature imposed a sense of order on things by making teenagers think all adults are squares, the result being that teenagers avoid adults like the plague, the end end result being that us adults don’t have to suffer hearing the awful banalities that pour from the mouths of teenage dimwits everywhere.

In short, they hates us and avoid us and we’re happy with that. High fives, nature!

Australian leadership challenge in the wind?

Last week Abbott made a speech at the launch of Connor Court’s new book of conservative essays, Making Australia Right. Abbott’s speech, which you can find in full over at Catallaxy Files, set off a chorus of attacks and abuse from his colleagues in parliament. They same politicians who knifed him in the back now consider him to be a bad sport who should just slink away and die.

But Abbott’s speech was concerned with saving the Liberal party as opposed to saving himself. It also was notable for the fact that it lacked a single personal attack, veiled or otherwise, on any of his colleagues who have treated him so shabbily. Now those same colleagues accuse of him of disloyalty and of attempting to undermine Turnbull, the very same actions that Turnbull propagated against Abbott.

The Sunday cooking thread – smoked salmon BBQ style.

It’s Sunday and on this day I love to cook. Scratch that – I like to cook every day because I love to eat well. I’ve been thinking about a cooking thread for a while, a thread to blow off some metaphorical steam from all of the political and masculine stuff. Otherwise it all becomes too heavy. So I hope to do this every Sunday. Feel free to pitch in and share your own Sunday cooking experiences. Okay, enough jabbering, onto it.

My personal beliefs and opinions

I have a new page on the header bar titled, my personal beliefs and opinions. It is primarily for people new to the blog who wish to quickly ascertain where I stand on certain issues. If you’ve been following my blog for a while there will be no surprises but you may find it of interest nonetheless.

It’s all here – links, vids, and zee hawt chick of the week.

And we arrive at another Friday. What an interesting week it has been here on the interwebs of the alt right. As I repose here in my pleated dressing gown on another wintery morning in the Melbourne summer that never was, it occurs to me that despite all of the interesting goings-on I really care not one whit, and as long as I have a glass of something good, a cigar that is noble, a home that is warm, and a wife that is obedient, then I have all that is good in the world. What joy.

Oh, who am I kidding. I care, baby, I care. On to the links and the resident hawtness.

Never say you’re sorry and never offer your resignation.

I have spoken at length before on the subject of why the modern man should never apologise. But now I need to add an addendum to that and stipulate that the modern man should never offer his resignation either. Two cases this week demonstrate this in action. The first I am sure that you’re all aware of – Milo offering his resignation to Brietbart and it being accepted.

I bet you a bag of steaming dicks that Milo never expected his offer to be accepted. I am sure that Milo considered his offer to be in good faith and thus going towards proving his innocence on the charges that had been leveled against him by the baying mob. It is extremely rare for a guilty man to offer his resignation because he knows that it will be accepted. But men who are not guilty and rather innocent in the ways of the world fall into the mistake of thinking that their noble gesture will be reciprocated when in fact it just offers a bunch of weaklings an easy way out of a tricky situation.

Podcast #37 – The Truth episode.

This has turned out to be my most important episode thus far. It concerns truth and why being a seeker of truth is so important if you are a writer or public commentator. I use the recent outrage over Milo as well as my own criticism of Dave Rubin as case study examples. As always, if you like the podcast please follow me and leave a review on itunes as it’s all appreciated and helps me to keep the podcast growing and reach a wider audience.

On Milo.

As I’m sure you’re all aware, Milo Yiannopoulos has been carved up and hung out to dry by the mainstream media for allegedly endorsing pedophilia. Also very recently, Bill Shorten the leader of the Federal opposition declared his continued support for the ‘Safe Schools’ program which aims to teach sexual orientation and transgender issues to eleven year old schoolchildren. One rule for them, one rule for those others.

Milo’s appearance on the Bill Maher show last week was accompanied by a loud chorus from the mainstream media that Milo was the de facto leader of the alt-right. This struck me as odd seeing as he is no such thing and has publicly disavowed such a position repeatedly. In fact, the alt-right has no leader despite the best efforts of the media to install one. We had the Hitler saluting guy the other month but his take down all but fizzled out. Now we have Milo.

River Diva’s professional failures blamed on men.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a post on my Facebook feed from some photography studio that is running a series on empowering women, like that hasn’t been done to death already. But one of the photos caught my eye and not in a good way.

Gay marriage and the Chesterton fence.

The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.

G.K. Chesterton.

My post on the hypocrisy of Dave Rubin who has nominally deserted the progressive side whilst benefiting from gay marriage, begot an argument with a commentator who demanded to know why gay marriage is bad. The essence of his argument is that since gay marriage does not affect him then he cannot see why it is of any importance.
