Cricket – a clash of cultures.

In my post on Thursday regarding the Australian cricketers caught cheating I had this to say:

At least ex-vice captain David Warner has had the sense not to publicly wallow in his own misery by throwing one of these atrocious press conferences.

Oops. Looks like I spoke too soon.

Friday hawt chicks & links – The not my pope edition.

Today is Good Friday, the day when Christ died for our sins. But making headlines is the news that the current Pope doesn’t believe that hell exists.

In another interview with his longtime atheist friend, Eugenio Scalfari, Pope Francis claims that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just “disappear.” This is a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.

That this news should break at Easter is particularly troubling. As Vox Day states, if there is no hell and no sin then there was no need for Christ to die on the cross.
The Vatican has gone into damage control mode:

* In a statement released on Mar. 29, after Scalfari’s report garnered worldwide attention, the Vatican said:
“The Holy Father Francis recently received the founder of the newspaper La Repubblica in a private meeting on the occasion of Easter, without however giving him any interviews. What is reported by the author in today’s article [in La Repubblica] is the result of his reconstruction, in which the textual words pronounced by the Pope are not quoted. No quotation of the aforementioned article must therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”

Enough with the big crying act already.

Followers of this blog know that the modern man does not cry.

Someone needs to tell that to Steve Smith, recently fired captain of the Australian cricket team:

Podcast #78 – The hardship episode.

Is hardship necessary to become a man? I argue that it is imperative to suffer trials and tribulations in life to grow as a man. A man is not subsidized. You absolutely must stand on your own two feet and the sooner the better.

Do you need to be poor to succeed?

Last week Aaron Clarey had a video request on the question of whether or not a father should provide his teenage son with a monthly stipend.

A father wants to know if $500-$750 per month will spoil his 15 year old son. Cappy believes so, but his sons potential physical and mental impairments may make this a moot point.

When I saw the video the first thing that I thought was that that amount of money was completely over the top.

Say hello to the alt-shite.

Trump’s signing of the omnibus bill has caused a simultaneous outpouring of rage from his most diehard supporters on the dissident right. The many are forthrightly declaring the same things: MAGA is over; we were stupid to vote for Trump; the dream is gone; the democrats are celebrating when they don’t even control the Senate; Obama would have signed this so Trump is now Obama, you get the picture.

Ann Coulter has worked herself up into possibly her biggest tizzy on record which is really saying something. John Derbyshire is convinced that this is the end. Mike Cernovich, Paul Joseph Watson and Gavin McInnes spent the entire day not getting it on Twitter. The weak kneed, the fair-weather friends, and the shrinking violets have all unanimously jumped from the Trump train in a very public manner. And my favorite?

Stefan Molyneux, of course.

Friday hawt chicks & links – The big government edition.

A bit late on the old Friday links this week, but better late than never. Can you count on the Friday links? More than you can count on governments to make you happy. I’m a small government kind of guy. Get the hell out of the way and for sure get the hell off my lawn. In Australia they’re almost at the stage where they’re going to tell you what type of lawn you’re allowed to have and how often you’re allowed to cut it it; read never because lawns are bad because climate change.
I wrote a piece this week on the UK police. I won’t link to it because linking to myself on the Friday links is bad form. I just decided that. But now it’s a rule. See how this government stuff gets out of control?
I may have had one or two scotches. Just sayin’.

Podcast #77 – The sacred cows episode.

The one where I continue on the theme of eviscerating Stefan Molynieux for being a white knight beta male. It’s got thrills, it’s got spills, it’s got awful truths and reality checks. Go on, you know you want to.
