Ann Coulter is (Still) Right About Dating in D.C.

I'm currently reading a galley copy of "Men on Strike" by Dr. Helen Smith (aka InstaWife).  A thought-provoking book that I'll write about more after I'm done reading it.  Basically, it talks about why men are boycotting marriage and fatherhood.  Smith likens it to "Going Galt" in that men are taking their production away from a society that oppresses them.  May 13, 2013 10:40 AM PT

Earlier today on Big Hollywood I wrote about actor Robert Davi and Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's recent tweets about the damage political correctness does.  Davi pointed me to the writings of Philip Atkinson.  Regarding the Pigford cases, I thought this passage was relevant: May 1, 2013 2:42 PM PT

Anti-Fox News Site Smears Robert Davi Sans Facts

Actor/singer Robert Davi is under attack from an anti-Fox News web site, but not for anything he said directly. The site simply puts hateful words into Davi's mouth in an effort to distract from his argument against political correctness. May 1, 2013 9:07 AM PT
