A little learning is a dangerous thing;
Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again.

All successful newspapers are ceaselessly querulous and bellicose. They never defend anyone or anything if they can help it; if the job is forced upon them, they tackle it by denouncing someone or something else.

Merry Christmas

I don't particularly care for "Happy Holidays," in the sense that I want to use my largest knife and gut the utterer of that horrid phrase, then decorate his head with his intestines while I flay him with my sharpest boning knife.

Wait....did I say that out loud.

I am immensely pleased to be Jewish, and wouldn't have it any other way, but the reality is that America is, for the time being, a Christian country, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with saying "Merry Christmas!" In fact, it is a rather nice phrase that conjures up notions of kindness and fellowship and happiness and all sorts of anti-SJW sentiments.

So when you see me on the street, please don't say that horrid phrase. A simple, "Merry Christmas" is a delight, and it is a phrase that should be much more widely used. And if we are going to be honest, Christmas isn't really just a religious holiday any more. It is secular and inclusive and a lovely excuse to smile and be happy and say nice things and overtip and let the earnest but hopelessly incompetent clerk think that he is doing a good job. Life is going to have lots of chances to beat him into the dirt, so maybe you not taking the first swing is a good thing.

So...From this Jew to you deluded heathens...have a merry Christmas.

Here's a pretty straightforward explanation of how to minimize your online footprint without actually turning into that strange uncle who doesn't have a cell phone and yells at the neighbor's cats.

My Twitter Feed
In case any of you actually read it, I have decided to be combative and inflammatory, and I am curious how long it will take for Twitter to marginalize me or just cancel my account. I am already blocked by a surprising number of people on the left...people with whom I have had no interaction. Why, it's almost as if they are keeping lists!
Update I called Seth Mandel a cocksucker and immediately got some weird pop-up that informed me my access to Twitter was being limited for 12 hours. I tweeted the same thing but with a cocks#$%er instead. But...they posted the original anyway and I saw no diminution in access or speed, so....I have no idea what to do.
