Joe Biden: The Great Auk to the Rescue
The mascot of the prep school that Joe Biden attended is a large, extinct, flightless bird called the Great Auk. When I arrived at that school...Archmere Academy in Claymont, Delaware...in the fall of 1956, I was puzzled by the choice of the Great Auk (rhymes with squawk ) as a mascot. Then I saw the football team’s first game.

Math, Gravity, and Speed Limits Reek of White Supremacy
Brooklyn College Professor of Math Education Laurie Rubel proclaimed recently on Twitter that the equation 2+2=4 “reeks of white supremacist patriarchy. The idea that math (or data) is culturally neutral or in any way objective is a MYTH.”

Are You the Master of Your Bedroom?
The true conservative does not like anything to happen that has not happened before. He prefers old dogs, old friends, old whiskey, and old songs...old words, too...and he's apt to become shirty when old words get surrounded by crime scene tape strung up by the low priests of political correctness and woke-fucking-culture.

The National Basketball Association Can Go Fuck Itself
If I ever watch another minute of another NBA game, I hope the god that I don't believe in strikes me dead nine ways to Sunday. I'm seeking a their-fault divorce. I have canceled my subscription to the all-you-can-watch NBA League Pass. This interracial marriage cannot be saved.

The Alt-Middle: The Silent White Majority
White is a color that comes in many flavors. There are White Supremacists, White Nationalists, White Separatists, and other, whiter shades of pale. Such groups, no matter what their flavor, are demonized and minimized by their progressive opponents as “the alt-right fringe.”

Living Among the Blowfish
The LGBTQ population of the United States is … a) 8.8%, b) 23.6%, c) 4.5%, d) way too annoying? The correct answer is “c,” yet according to a 2017 Gallup poll, most adults in this country would have answered “b,” owing to the fact that most American adults grossly overestimate the percentage of their fellow citizens that bats from the underside of the plate. “Grossly,” as in, by a factor of five: 23.6% to 4.5%.

Why I Love the Coronavirus
COVID-19 is the gift pandemic that keeps on giving: a gleaming, unforgiving mirror that reflects the foibles, failures, and foolhardiness of the American people in 4K mind-blowing splendor. No one is exempt, Skippy, not republicans, democrats, libertarians, vegans, transvestites, independents, eggheads, skinheads, straights, non-straights (I got your binary, here), cisgenders, misgenders, those who think the Redskins’ name was OK and those who don’t. Have I missed anybody? COVID-19 won’t. You’ve got to respect an opponent like that. We might have the makings of a dynasty on our hands.

The Pug Bus Loudly Endorses Donald Trump for President
Postcards from the Pug Bus sez it loud and sez it proud: We fucking endorse Donald John Trump for re-election to the office of president of the United States. If Mr. Trump is good enough for the National Association of Police Organizations, he's good enough for us. The association, to be sure, is all that stands between us, the Mau Maus, and a trash can hurled through our favorite restaurant's front window.

Quit Calling It a Fucking Mural
A distressing number of Black Lives Matter "murals" have sprouted up recently like so many mushrooms out of a mycelium of resentment and hate. That doesn't necessarily mean shit to a toad, but the inclination of the press to refer to these eruptions as "murals" makes me wonder if they've ever seen a real mural. It also makes me wonder if black people will ever wake up to the fact that their minders, both black and white, treat them like mushrooms: keeping ‘em in the dark and feeding ‘em dung.
