The Devil’s greatest trick was to teach the downtrodden to love the taste of the boot. Now a disturbingly large portion of the population not only loves the taste, but seem to want to deepthroat it. Read more

Man, there are an awful lot of people in the comments who either don’t understand labor law or seem aggressively opposed to it. And that’s a shame.

Yesterday, I saw that the 1619 Project is going to spinoff a series of books so this may ultimately reach a pretty big readership.

They don’t want to acknowledge the consequences here: that was soo long ago, 200 years is long time for it to be over etc. When I studied abroad in France I always heard them brag that they ended slavery in 1794 and were so open minded but the racists there put our KKK to shame.
