"Keep clear of the dupes that talk democracy
And the dogs that talk revolution,
Drunk with talk, liars and believers.
I believe in my tusks.
Long live freedom and damn the ideologies
" -- Robinson Jeffers

Opinion editor at the Daily Caller, contributor at The Umlaut, board member of Alumni for Liberty, and curator of right-wing art and red eats.

Founder of a group blog called The Mitrailleuse, a place for new political thinking that crosses ideological lines, focusing particularly on religion and the concept of 'exit,' or the formal withdrawal of consent.

I am also one-half of @salondotcom, a parody of Salon headlines, for which we were dubbed American heroes by the Washington Examiner.
