Brass and Fishie’s CPAC Road Journal

When we decided to take a road trip to CPAC, we had no idea what we’d find on the road.  But we did want to bring you along with us in some way.  So we broadcast updates from the road via Spreecast.  We wandered from Texas to Louisiana, then to…

RE: Culture: A Pirate’s Life…

  Today’s RE: Culture is not about Napster or Limewire or even The Pirate Bay. In fact, it has little to do with piracy at all. No, what I’m writing about today is Privateering, just not for the government. Adam Carolla is kind of a superhero. Last Friday, Adam unleashed…

Let’s Do The Time Warp Again!

For the past few weeks after reading the headlines, I really felt like I was in a time warp.  When did the right become the civil rights protesters and the left become the establishment? Here you have Senator Rand Paul conducting a filibuster for  13 hours trying to protect Americans…

Rand Paul Filibusters Brennan Nomination

I usually want politicians to shut up.  Less talk, more action.  But not today. “I will speak until I can no longer speak. I will speak as long as it takes, until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial…

RE: Culture: Playlists

Switching things up on RE: Culture this week!  Today I’m going to show you guys some videos from influential YouTube Channels that you might not be aware of.  Your kids, however, will. YouTube is quickly evolving into TV’s worst nightmare, generating high quality content for a fraction of the cost to produce even the cheapest…

RIP, Radical

RIP, Andrew Breitbart.  I have nothing profound to say, because all my words are broken. I’m among the fortunate to have met you, and I treasure my wine-stained book you signed for me, and the nice things you said about me.  I never got to tell you how much I…

Thank You For Smoking!

I saw something incredible last Tuesday.  I saw a man light up a cigarette and smoke it on live TV. Not just on TV, on Fox News.  On Hannity of all places.  It shocked and amazed me.  I’m not joking. I turned 24 two weeks ago and in those 24…

I Still Like Romney. There. I Said It.

I really didn’t want Mitt Romney to run for president again in 2012. When he was first making all the proper pre-presidential-campaign rounds, I cringed. As a “conservative” I found his positions and his fervor for upholding my pet issues to be less than stellar. And to be honest, I…

RE: Culture: Water Cooler Cud

This week’s RE: Culture is a bit reactive; if you’re looking for something deeper than a review, you might want to check out this. (Click it anyway, it helps me in my war against Something Fishie and Ethan Sabo over who can get the most views on a single post. I’m…

Ted Cruz is Flipping the Script

Alinsky. We’ve learned that word quite well in the past four years.  Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals have been employed for a long time against rightward-leaning politicians and leaders, but it wasn’t until recently that most liberty activists learned to spot them.  And the rule that has been utilized with the most ferocity…
