In Memoriam: Deanna Rose

A few months ago we told you about the struggle of my friends the Bacas, whose family home was destroyed in a tragic house fire. As I described in that post, there are few things more disorienting than losing your home.

Iconoclasm

One of the intellectual curiosities New Yorkers, particularly those of a libertarian bent, have enjoyed for over 3 decades is Junto. A monthly gathering which explores the political and economic issues of our time, it’s hosted by Victor Niederhoffer, a trader and writer who brings his own unique perspective to each stimulating debate and/or...

The Joy Circuit

The Joy Circuit

One of the benefits of living in New York City-a place which often feels like it was expressly designed to discourage your presence-is the seemingly endless opportunities to see amazing, live music acts.

Dueling Protests (Trump vs. Anti-Trump)

Dueling Protests (Trump vs. Anti-Trump)

Last night I couldn’t help but notice the scores of youthful, blissfully deluded Bernie Sanders supporters traveling home from Manhattan. No doubt many of them will be in attendance at the demonstration in front of the Republican Gala-hosting the remaining 3 Republican presidential candidates-which is slated to occur later today. For those of you...

We Are Breitbart (NYC Splinter Cell)

We Are Breitbart (NYC Splinter Cell)

  New York City can often feel like an alien environment for those who prize rationality and individualism over collectivist groupthink and social justice campaigns designed to distract you from the fact that public section unions and non-profits exercise a stranglehold over the decision-making process. Our mayor is a Cold War Era relic who fetishizes...
