Silicon Valley Browncoat

Update: For those who can’t watch the entire speech, CNBC has provided a surprisingly good summary of Thiel’s remarks.  The event begins 3 minutes into the video and Thiel begins speaking roughly 5:30 minutes in.

Convention Theatrics (The Final Day of the RNC)

Convention Theatrics (The Final Day of the RNC)

The biggest news of the RNC thus far has been, without question, Ted Cruz’s magnanimous endorsement of Ted Cruz.

Stand And Deliver (Confronting Leftist Banditry)

Bush, it’s hard to conceive of an especially absurd presidential candidate. Thankfully, Leaping Lindsey has just relieved your imagination of that responsibility by throwing...

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist...
