The Bell Tower

"If government were a toaster, I'd demand a refund"
  The creators and producers of Game of Thrones have delivered something that very few, if any, television shows have managed to accomplish over the course of television history. They built a show centered around a tragic literary figure on a par with Oedipus or Hamlet who also happened to be female. You’d think the feminists and the forces of vacuous, progressive inanity would be celeb... [More]

This is what Marcus Tullius Cicero must have thought as he walked into the burned out wreckage of his villa and looked at the stolen Greek statue hastily erected to repsent Libertas, the Roman goddess of liberty. Publius Clodius Pulcher, whose mob had burned Cicero's villa to the ground and constructed the false temple to keep Cicero from reclaiming his property if he ever returned from exile, was...

I understand now why Nero fiddled during the Great Fire of Rome. Imagine sitting through a screening of Human Centipede Part 3 with a room full of people and the knowledge that the impression they leave with is the impression they will have of your entire country. That's what's happening to Americans right now. All of these people carrying on about #BelieveWomen in the Twitterverse are achiev... [More]

It was only a matter of time before the loudest fly in the neighborhood found the biggest turd in the trash can. Hearing Micahel Avenatti has found another accuser in the Brett Kavanaugh saga is like discovering that a hooker isn't wearing any underwear: inevitable, unsurprising and mildly nauseating. There was a time when journalism adhered to standards: of evidence, of sourcing, of credibility, ... [More]

The only difference between Brett Kavanaugh's alleged sexual assault and Big Foot is that Big Foot has more witnesses willing to come forward and testify to his existence. The amazing thing is, this is the literal truth and not just a hilarious joke.

  Sanjay Gupta   In some ways, Dr. Sanjay Gupta's article is compelling and compassionate.  Starvation is a universal problem that humanity has never yet completely solved. That we might work collectively to eradicate hunger has been an elusive dream of mankind for a long time. It is a well-documented fact that democracy, liberty and the principles of Western Civilization gener... [More]

This campaign needs an enema.  The Bell Tower has been on vacation for too long.  There are so many myths and false stories hovering around this election, it will take two posts just to hit the high points: 1. Mitt Romney is a tax cheat. Really?  Why hasn't the President brought him to justice then?  We're supposed to believe that the man who singlehandedly killed Osa... [More]

Huh? "Recent studies have shown that Latino identity is malleable, contextual and constantly evolving. Younger Latinos in particularly [sic] see no contradiction in calling themselves Dominican, American and black, or Caucasian, Hispanic-American and Colombian, or gaysian, blaxican, or any other racial-cultural-sexual amalgam that fits their nationality, genealogy, sexuality and mood..." - Guy Gar...
