I love James Fulford’s stuff and seek it out like Kevin Williamson hunts down Peanut Butter Ho-ho's. Well, okay, maybe not that doggedly.
I was surprised that he passed up the opportunity to remind Kevin that the answers to all of his problems are right there in his old NR screeds. To wit, if losing that steady Atlantic check should put him between a rock and a hard place, and even the usual neo-con think tanks can't help him catch up on his rent, why, all he need do is pack up everything he owns, deposit it all into a U-Haul rental, and simply drive to where the conservative commentator jobs are!
You might say it's easy as pie, unless that would constitute fat-shaming.
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets … The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul. [The Father-Führer, By Kevin D. Williamson, NR, March 28, 2016]
