Max’s Views: The Truth About Alcohol

The Truth About Alcohol **1/2 They say alcohol is a poison. And I suppose that’s technically true. But it isn’t that dangerous a poison. I know this because I have been to the UK a few times. And I can tell you from firsthand experience that there are, in fact, elderly people there. If some British people made it to old age, then it is a proven fac...

Detroit *** The 1967 Detroit Riot was hideously destructive. More than 1000 people were injured. 43 died. More than two thousand buildings were destroyed. After five days of arson and looting, the combined forces of police, National Guard, and army troops were finally able to enforce the 9pm curfew and reestablish order. Thank goodness for those ar...

Now on Netflix The Battered Bastards of Baseball **** Tim Tebow is one of the most famous sports figures in America. He is best known for being Christian, but he actually plays sports from time to time as well. Tebow was a star quarterback for the University of Florida. Then he was a lousy quarterback in the NFL.

Now on Netflix Oklahoma City ***1/2 When the media talks about a terrorist, they are supposed to say that he is a brainwashed coward. Yup. According to the talking heads on CNN and Fox, every terrorist is the same: cowardly and crazy. I don’t know why it is against the rules of society to be honest about terrorism. The truth is that some terrorists...

Americans Who Are Anti-Israel Aren’t Anti-Semitic

In a world full of nightmarishly terrible countries (Saudi Arabia, Iran, Belarus, South Sudan, Central Africa Republic, North Korea, Syria), it is strange that the most hated is Israel. It is objectively true that the people living in the West Bank and Gaza are oppressed. It is objectively false that Israel is more barbaric and less restrained than...

Now on Netflix Boom Bust Boom **** By now, anybody who can sit through an economics lesson knows how the 2008 financial meltdown happened. Banks assumed that housing prices would continue to go up forever, so they lent money to new homeowners who couldn’t afford the loans. Then the banks sold the loans to other banks and to private investors. This...

New on Netflix Betting on Zero **1/2 “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” — Genesis 3:19 I am thankful for the wisdom of this bible verse. Without it, life would be a lot harder and more complicated. There have been hundreds of...

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press *** In 2012, the news gossip site Gawker posted part of a video that showed Hulk Hogan in bed with his best friend’s wife. Hulk Hogan was so angry that he could have torn off his shirt in anger. So, what did he do about it? He successfully sued Gawker and its publishers for $140 million that they definitely di...

Emmanuel Macron: Behind the Rise ** President Obama’s legacy has been hopelessly distorted by partisanship. The American Right has spun Obama into something that he never was or tried to be: a Progressive. Ask a Republican, and he will tell you that the President was an anti-American Socialist Peacenik. Amusingly, the American Left has decided to d...

Get Me Roger Stone **** “I am the most qualified. I have the most experience. I am the smartest and the most educated.” Ń a foolish candidate for public office I cringe every time I hear a politician say something like that. I loathe the guy saying it, but I still feel for him. That strategy never works. At best, mentioning your brains and your exp...
