SORT BY Relevancy
We decided once again to run the latest data through our highly scientific, incontrovertible ranking process—inspired, after all, by a 1931 H.L. Mencken magazine series delicately called “The Worst American State.”Mississippi
Mencken might not have lived in the era of big data, let alone cultural sensitivity. But taking as granted a few of his basic ideas—that education, health and wealth generally make us better off, while crime, unemployment and death do not—we compiled 14 existing rankings of the 50 states and the District of Columbia Politico
Monty Pelerin was on again, that pseudonymous sage of economic and political wit. While he's got a few years on yours truly, he's only voted in one election that he can remember, and he's rather upset that he had that breakdown in judgment. Fortunately, he's never repeated that lapse in judgment again. We also talked about that source of universal political wisdom H.L. Mencken. Here's a few noteworthy quotes.
A good politician is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.
Democracy is a form of worship. It is the worship of jackals by jackasses.
Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.
Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.
Giving every man a vote has no more made men wise and free than Christianity has made them good.
I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.
Until the old-style campaign coverage was altered because of the rise of cable TV, Twitter and other social media, Mr. Germond heartily enjoyed the rigors and fun that came with the campaign trail.
"Jack was a journalist of the old-school — a poker-playing, whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking, evil young man," Robert D. Novak, the conservative pundit who frequently clashed with Mr. Germond on "The McLaughlin Group," said in the People interview.
Their celebrated clashes found their way to Saturday Night Livewith Chris Farley as Mr. Germond and Dana Carvey portraying Mr. McLaughlin, the show's host.The Baltimore Sun
American Prophecy in the Shadows | ID# ww-060613 |
This week on Warn Radio Battle lines we feature American Prophecy in the Shadows! It is a time of power structures, wickedness in high places of the Government, and of the shadows of the night. It is here as well that all the latest, hottest news, events around the globe are continually covered in the light of biblical prophecy and revelation on Warn Radio. Tonight we also discover the "Night Far Spent" and those shadows are giving way to Prophecy and the time of the end.
From the Mailbag comes this Prophetic Comment:
"As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."-- H.L. Mencken, Born 1880 – Died 1956,
Scripture: "Night is Far Spent" Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Rom 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
Rom 13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Join us as we continue our literary journey with Pulitzer Prize-winning American author Willa Sibert Cather. Cather is an author known for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, works such as O Pioneers!, My Ántonia, and The Song of the Lark. She was celebrated by national critics such as H.L. Mencken for writing in plain-spoken language about ordinary people. All in all Willa Cather, is distinguished for her strong and sensitive evocations of prairie life in the twilight years of the midwestern frontier. Her poetic sensibility was in sharp contrast to the naturalistic and Freudian-influenced literary movements of her time. Tune in as we take a literary journey with Willa Cather. Stay tuned and keep it locked.

"The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth--that the error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it is cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one."
