Hi, it’s me!  Yes, it’s been forever.  Red Pill Mama moved back to San Francisco, went back to working full time, you know, nothing big really … Anyway, no time for my usual pontifications, but I had to share this article reporting the fact that The world wastes half its food. HALF. What can you [...]

I wrote a while ago about the Nag Factor chapter from Consuming Kids, after my mom watched the documentary The Corporation and passed along some choice, yet disturbing, factoids. I wanted to take you back to the very beginning of Consuming Kids: as I’ve said before, it’s the book that I consider to be the [...]

More Talkin’ About Walkin’

Alas, school has ended for us here, so my morning walks to school with Lily are no more — for the moment.  Though we did venture out one humid, sweaty morning to take a loop around the neighborhood, somehow it just wasn’t the same: it was not a lovely cool morning, we weren’t walking at [...]

The Best Onion Article EVER!

From The Onion: “Budget Mix-Up Provides Nation’s Schools With Enough Money To Properly Educate Students” WASHINGTON—According to bewildered and contrite legislators, a major budgetary mix-up this week inadvertently provided the nation’s public schools with enough funding and resources to properly educate students.

WALK to School? Seriously?

While I’ve historically busted on my kids’ public elementary school for being in the dark ages about such things as soda, recycling and advertising to kids, the school recently did something that was very much on the ball — and very Red Pill, actually. As part of the Georgia Safe Routes to School program, we [...]

Let’s Make Our 8-Year-Olds Sexy!

It’s simply beyond me — the preschool beauty pageants, 7-year-old cheerleaders in perfect pedophile-friendly attire (and makeup), bralettes for grade schoolers, thongs for 1o-year-olds and push-up bikinis for kindergartners.  In a great CNN article by LZ Granderson, he says “What adult who wants a daughter to grow up with high self-esteem would even consider purchasing [...]

Rethinking the Simplest Things

We are creatures of habit, no doubt.  It could also be said that we in the U.S. are creatures of comfort and creatures of culture.  We do what we do, in many cases, because it’s always been done, it’s easier that way, and everybody’s doing it.  But I believe that so much of what we [...]

Letting Our Kids Enjoy the Silence

On the recent and lovely occasion of my yearly mammogram, I found that my radiology office’s waiting room had, since my last visit, been upgraded to include a blaring TV set.  I walked in, and along with a mom and her 8-year-old daughter, was treated to a war movie, of all things – angry, aggressive, [...]

LIFE vs. Manufactured Culture

It’s a rare and wonderful gift when I come across something that perfectly and eloquently communicates what I have in my gut.  I find that my explanations to people of what Red Pill is all about are often clumsy and unsatisfying.  I can find absolutely no information about the author of the following quote, Oak [...]

Yes, Virginia, Meat Really Does Come from Dead Animals

Wow, have you been watching Steven Rinella’s “The Wild Within” on Travel Channel?  We’ve watched two episodes with the kids, and the scene from the Hawaii episode, where he kills the wild boar, is quite possibly one of the most intense things I’ve ever seen on television.  I’m so impressed with the way they film [...]
