You might have thought that Tim Newman had said all their is to say about poyamory, but then he just comes up with another great fisking:
>We’re both nervous and don’t know what to expect. I’ve pushed Brad to “go first” in dating and sexually exploring other women. He’s been on two dates so far, and we even arranged a crazy one-night stand to sort of break the ice and test our feelings.
Nothing screams maturity and responsibility like arranging a crazy one-night stand.
Christopher Snowdon writes that alcohol consumption has been declining, yet alcohol-related deaths haven’t been:
This poses a problem for the modern ‘public health’ lobby for whom it is axiomatic that a decline in overall consumption must lead to a decline in alcohol-related deaths
Kristian Niemietz fuses Marx and Dickens in his A Socialist Carol:
Owen jumped out of bed. He grabbed a tennis racket, and tiptoed towards the kitchen. As he got closer, he noticed that he recognised the music. It was the Soviet national anthem.
He peeked through the crack of the door. He saw a man with a large, dark moustache, wearing a uniform. The man was looking at him. He smiled, and waved.
“Privyet, Tovarish Owen! Come een, come een!”, he said, in a thick Russian accent.
Confused, Owen entered the kitchen. “Who are you?”, he asked.
“I am the Ghost of Socialism Past. Come, let me show you something.”
Old Commie Neil Clark somehow manages to con the American Conservative into letting him have an article. In it he tries to convince us that Pete Seeger was really just a good old-fashioned conservative:
In an interview with the New York Times in 1995 [Seeger] declared, “I like to say I’m more conservative than [Barry] Goldwater. He just wanted to turn the clock back to when there was no income tax. I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other.”
Farenheit 211 gives the West Yorkshire police a well-deserved beating:
Now winning this award might have stoked the egos of the various ‘diversity-wallahs’ of West Yorkshire Police but the public, who took to Twitter to comment were none too impressed. They were not impressed with the award and speculated about how many Islamic institutions West Yorkshire Police had to politically fellate in order to win it?
The Devil’s Kitchen writes about reforming politics:
But the problem is that, sooner or later, such bodies always become corrupted. The WHO, for instance, has moved from its drive to eliminate real diseases such as smallpox (which it was successful in), to attempting to “eliminate non-communicable diseases by 2030” (state-speak for ”anything that might kill you that isn’t a disease” or, in this case, ”eliminating death”!): this latter mission means regulating the day-to-day lifestyles of ordinary people which is, and I cannot emphasise this strongly enough), not the proper business of government.
