As a single female politician, she has no emotional encumbrances of love, no family restraint, no children to worry about. Her political style and tactics are often emotional, personalized, and extreme. She doesn't care so much about the direction of political strategies, being more concerned with details. She proposes extreme short-term goals, and does not consider long-term goals.CNN's teensy calvarium is pounding and pulsing and booming. No! No! No! We learned ChairmanMaoThought perfectly! We diligently strive to eliminate Four Olds and implement Hundred Flowers! ChairmanMaoThought tells us there is no difference between m*les and wymmyns! Why is China committing bourgeois counterrevolutionary closeddoorism? I don't understand!!!!! Here, let me deconfuse you. It won't work, but just for the record: Chinks are smarter than we are and saner than we are. Chinks never abandoned Natural Law, and Madame Mao's attempt to erase Nature TAUGHT THEM the value of Natural Law even more firmly than before. Chinks accurately understand the difference between male and female, accurately understand the importance of marriage, and accurately understand the importance of tribes and nations and borders and tariffs and WALLS. We were loony from the start. And I do mean the start. "We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal...." People are not equal. People are intrinsically different. This is a FACT. It was known in 1776, and it's known in infinitely more scientific detail now. Calling a lie "self-evident" doesn't make it true; it only tells us that you are possessed by a demon.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
