The Statue of Liberty is Not a Muslim

I did a video about the recent Statue of Liberty insanity. In case you missed it, people are now claiming that the Statue of Liberty was based on a Muslim. I decided to record a quick take for the fuck of it. I hope you...

OPEN THREAD: Monday Was the Biggest Day in the History of TheRalphRetort.Com!

I run a blog, so I can’t really claim to work hard in the same sense as someone who does manual labor or anything constructive for society, but still. I put in some real effort on Monday and it was rewarded with the most traffic...

Google Has Done the Right Thing & Restored My AdSense

After a long week or so of battling with Google, they did the right thing and reinstated my AdSense. The whole thing was a misunderstanding caused by some algorithm or automated response from their system, as far as I can tell. Unfortunately, I don’t get...

Google is Hilariously Accusing Me of Stealing My Own Content

Yesterday, I told you about how Google suspended my AdSense account. For the life of me, I could not figure out why. Well, I finally did, thanks to an email from their support. And while they have still not fixed their grievous error, at least...

Google AdSense Has Again Suspended TheRalphRetort.com

You may have been wondering why I’ve been absent the last day or two. I did have the big story on Bill Mitchell, which was nice, but other than that, I’ve been laying low. Well, I haven’t really been absent…I’ve been busy arguing with Google AdSense...

FREE PROMO: My Response to Minority Hire Ian Miles Cheong’s Heat Street Hit Piece About Little Ol’ Me

Today was going along fairly well. I was working on the new store I opened up…just kinda enjoying the end of the holiday season, ya know? But then, things took a turn towards the amazing. Heat Street and their minority hire Ian Miles Cheong decided...

EDITOR’S NOTE: All Apologies

On August 27th of this year, I traveled to Loudoun County to meetup with a colleague I had done some projects with online. I almost stopped myself from going, several times. Now, of course, I wish I had. At the time, though, I had no...

BAN INCOMING? My Twitter Just Got Locked for 12 Hours…Again (UPDATE)

Earlier this evening, my Twitter was locked for 12 hours. This isn’t the first time this has happened. In fact, by my count, it’s the 5th. But with all the bans going down as of late, I think the final banhammer might be swinging down...

Dear Mama (My Recent Posting Absence Explained)

You might have noticed that I’ve been MIA the last several days. There’s a very good reason for this that has nothing to do with me falling off the wagon, or anything like that. My mother was hospitalized for the last several days due to...

Thoughts on Vaping

When I gave up drink and drugs in late August, I picked up an old and destructive habit a few weeks later. Smoking. Now, I know that smoking is one of the dumbest things you could possible do. I watched it kill my grandmother, for...

Sobriety, 65 Days In

Every once in awhile, I like to write about topics that are outside the normal fare you see here on the site. As you know, I took last week off so I could spend time with my lovely and talented fiancé. I don’t get to...

Back to Work Today

I’ve been relaxing since Friday due to Nora’s arrival stateside. We did do a crazy #Killstream, but other than that there hasn’t been much going on here with the site. Tomorrow I will again be out of sight, but it’s because of a mandated appearance...

Site Issues Fixed

If you’ve been coming to the site the last week, then you know we’ve had some issues as far as keeping the thing up goes. It was just down for 2 hours but it looks like we have the fix installed. Long story short, someone...

Legal/Site Update

As most of you know, I’ve had some legal issues as of late. Luckily, I have secured the services of a very good attorney, so I expect all this to be taken care of to the satisfaction of both me and the State of Virginia....

My Father, My Sobriety, and My Life

Today is my father’s birthday. He’s 62 years old. I learned a lot of things from him, stuff I will always cherish. The love I have for history and politics? I can thank him for that. The obsession I have with movies and media also...

I Got Verified on Twitter Yesterday, And Man Did the Salt Flow

Longtime readers of this site know that I love Twitter…maybe a little too much. There’s something about the service that keeps pulling me back in. The way you can read news as it happens, the instant analysis on said news from people you love and...
