Aaron Clarey is an economist and the author of the irreverent Captain Capitalism site. His book Enjoy the Decline: Accepting and Living with the Death of the United States is the perfect guide for coping with the masochistic self- destruction of the premier Western Democracy.
Unlike morose examinations of this topic by Mark Steyn and others Clarey greets the twilight of individual liberties and the diminishing of economic expectations with a swashbuckling smile and a cocktail in one hand. His guide is meant partly tongue-in- cheek but he manages to convey some very practical advice – especially for the younger population who are facing a far bleaker future than previous generations.

The goddess called SaRenna Lee was nice enough to send along this anniversary pic!

Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of the neglected Pulp Hero G-8. This continues a story-by- story look at the adventures of this World War One American fighter pilot who – along with his two wingmen the Battle Aces – took on various supernatural and super- scientific menaces thrown at the Allied Powers by the Central Powers of Germany, Austria- Hungary and the Ottoman Muslim Turks.
G-8 was created by Robert J Hogan in 1933 when World War One was still being called simply the World War or the Great War. Over the next eleven years Hogan wrote 110 stories featuring the adventures of G-8, the street-smart pug Nippy Weston and the brawny giant Bull Martin. The regular cast was rounded out by our hero’s archenemy Doktor Krueger, Battle, G-8’s British manservant and by our hero’s girlfriend R-1: an American nurse/ spy whose real name, like G-8’s was never revealed. G-8’s war-time pulp adventures were a clear influence on the Timely Comics (later Marvel Comics) character Captain America.
4. THE MIDNIGHT EAGLE (January 1934) – After an absence of one story G-8’s archenemy Doktor Krueger is back! A gigantic Eagle flies the skies over No Man’s Land and is wreaking havoc with Allied pilots, clawing them out of the skies with its enormous talons. Even our hero and his Battle Aces barely survive their first encounter with the airborne menace. Continue reading
WEARY OF BEING RIDICULED FOR HIS BOGUS CLAIM OF BEING A NOBEL PRIZE WINNER THE FUNNY LITTLE MAN ADOPTED A NEW SLOGAN: “MICHAEL MANN – THE SECOND N IS SILENT!”
Filed under humor, opinion
AIRESKOI – The Iroquois god of war, identified with the Aurora Borealis. While other Iroquois souls would go to the conventional afterlife warriors slain in battle got to reside with Aireskoi in the heavens, their souls glowing with the grandeur of their battlefied heroics, thus accounting for the brightness of the Aurora Borealis.

I’ve made my contempt for American Liberals and American Conservatives very clear in the past. The Liberal and Conservative fanatics who have taken over the Democratic and Republican Parties are hopelessly destructive fools.
However, at this particular point in history the pretentious asses of American Liberalism are more pompous and hubristic than American Conservatives so I’m “deconstructing” their mythological figures first. I’ll do Conservative Mythology next.
Liberals think they possess The One True Worldview.
The number one deity in American Liberal mythology would be – THEMSELVES! Make no mistake, the most vulnerable part of any American Liberal is their ego. Clueless American Conservatives often make the mistake of thinking they’re insulting Liberals by calling them unpatriotic or socialist or ungodly. Accusations like that only charge the batteries of Liberals. The best way to actually insult American Liberals is by pointing out to them how pretentious, snobbish and insecure they are. It also helps to point out to them how hopelessly naive they are, too, despite their self-image as cosmopolitan sophisticates.
American Liberals are always convinced that they have Really Deep Thoughts that other people couldn’t possibly have ever had and they trot out their childishly simplistic take on world affairs in conversations and expect the people they’re talking to to be ever so impressed. Unfortunately for Liberals they’re invariably stagnated at some level of political discourse the rest of us moved on from years – if not decades – ago. I’ll point out again that American Liberals are so far behind the rest of us they actually think they’re ahead. Continue reading

The weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama continues to slither even lower than his fellow reptile Richard Nixon did. Nixon could only muster an eighteen and a half minute gap regarding likely incriminating evidence but Little Barry Obama has left history with a TWO YEAR GAP of e-mails regarding the IRS/ Lois Lerner scandal (which itself is just one of dozens of criminal scandals hovering around the administration of this repulsive little slug from the cesspool of Chicago politics).
As various IT professionals are stating it is inconceivable for all of the emails between an IRS chief and the White House to simply disappear because of computer problems like the administration is lying abou – um, I mean claiming. A reasonable person might conclude that this is another example of the corruption at the core of the Obama Administration … and might wonder what bombshells are still to come. Continue reading
