Whatever Happens To Kavanaugh, Feinstein Got Exactly What She Wanted

The leading Democratic figures during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings were presumed 2020 presidential hopefuls Kamala Harris and Cory Booker.

Huge Spikes In Democrat Voter Turnout Across The Country Should Alarm The GOP

It all comes down to turnout” is the hoariest truism in election coverage. We don’t yet know what it will be for the midterm election, but based on turnout for the primaries concluded in 2018, Republicans should be worried.

Why Our Day Is Far More Religious Than The Middle Ages Was

The Middle Ages are often described as “the Age of Faith.” But surely, if any age deserves that epithet, it is ours.

True, the Middle Ages were the age of Christianity, but hardly the age of faith. If we take faith in the common, though oversimplified sense of blind belief in that which is not seen or understood, then the Middle Ages, with their worshipful admiration of Aristotle, fine definitions, and extremely precise use of language, and monasteries full of busy monks copying and commenting on scholarly texts, are the reverse of the age of faith.

Yes, Down Syndrome Is A Life Worth Living, And A Life Worth Saving

When Jessica Capitani’s son was born, she remembers doctors, nurses and specialists continuing to ask her about her baby — but not in a congratulatory way. Instead, it was, “Didn’t you have the test?” The insinuation was that her son should not be here, that he should have been weeded out through abortion, because he has Down syndrome.

How The Man Bun Is Destroying Our Civilization

So, I don’t want to sound dramatic or anything, but your man bun is ruining our civilization.

Hear me out. It’s not about the man bun in se. It’s about cultural context. Samurai man buns are OG. European soccer player man buns…eh, let’s say we fought a revolution for a reason. Even the crunchy hippie man bun—those guys live hardcore lives, hiking the entire Pacific Crest trail, pretending civilization doesn’t exist.
