A Pregnant Male, or The Transgender Debate!
My short reporting on the time-wasting transgender debate taking over college campuses and social media. Here’s why it makes no sense whatsoever.
How ‘Beta Bucks’ Ken Lost Barbie to G.I. Joe
Back in the day a U.S. Army Veteran named Bill Corsair was hired by HASBRO to be the original voice of G.I. Joe. He recorded phases like “Enemy planes, hit the dirt.” Bill served in the First Cavalry Division in 1969, Vietnam. Thank you for your service, Bill. In 2018, when yours truly was ornery about woke relational dynamics, I recorded some commentary over a commercial joint-venture by Mattel and Nissan. Watching the video on the above-linked page will give you my tongue-in-cheek riff about why competition and action-taking isn’t “Toxic!”

Critical-thinking libertarian Josh Long says, “the most fascinating part of this whole mess is that the majority of society have gone along with make-believe rules (aka mandates). I wonder how many thousands of companies fired people for not being jabbed simply because Biden had a press conference saying they needed to?”

“And have been for six months,” say Alex Berenson. “This chart [available via the link] may seem unbelievable or impossible, but it’s correct, based on weekly data from the British government.”
Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy
“Lucy’s kind of unhappy. To get to the bottom of why, we need to define what makes someone happy or unhappy in the first place. It comes down to a simple formula: Happiness = Reality – Expectations. It’s pretty straightforward—when the reality of someone’s life is better than they had expected, they’re happy. When reality turns out to be worse than the expectations, they’re unhappy.
