We’re at war in Iraq again. In an effort to prevent the brutal genocide of the Yazidi religious minority by ISIS, we began dropping humanitarian supplies on the refugees. That has now escalated to bombing of ISIS artillery. Right now, Obama is promising the engagement will be “limited”. We will see.… Read more
You would think that the morons at the LA Times, considering how blatant the evidence is to make the point, would realize that the revelation that 40% of American households are under financial stress, actually is a repudiation of the “social justice” agenda. Instead they are arguing that the cure for this distress is more of the very policies and practices that cause the harm. For these collectivist twits there is no economic malaise … Read more
I blogged earlier about the prosecution of Shaneen Allen, a working mom of two who legally owned a gun and voluntarily declare its presence when she was pulled over in New Jersey, where having a loaded gun in a car is a crime. Despite the availability of a diversionary program, the prosecutor has elected to charge her with a felony and the trial is going forward.
What struck me about Balko’s latest write-up was … Read more
Unlike the English Parliament (Is it OK to call them “English”?) or other legislative bodies around the world where defending one’s honor right there on the floor is not some fashion of a bygone era, our legislative process is positively somnambulatory. The hours are pretty good, pliable interns, and no wasting time reading the bills that they vote on, no, the worst part is sitting through those bloody god awful sessions. But the other … Read more
But we are going to keep pretending we are not talking out of our collective government funding wanting asses. This stuff is just priceless.
From the comments:
Like Astrology, Marxism and Freudianism, Global Warming theory can “explain” anything, but predict NOTHING.
No, this is not a global warming post, but it is equally nebulous. A video is making the rounds of late trying to graph an empirical link wrt to women and dating. Although entertaining, it is, well, baloney;
First off, how dare he besmirch redheads, obviously he has never had one.
Although he touched on it briefly, the problem with blueprints like this is that women are not static, and will move up and down … Read more
I’m away again this week, but thought I’d pop and note that the CIA, which previously pretended they weren’t spying on the Senate, did recently admit that they were spying on the Senate as the Senate prepared their report on the CIA’s torture program. This confirms my earlier judgement that the CIA is yet another rogue agency with a lying director, a distinction it now share’s with Obama’s NSA, IRS, DHS, ATF and Justice Department. … Read more
Today’s big headline is that “Dow drops 200-plus points; stocks negative for July“, which coming on the heels of the almost surely to be found out as bunk revelation by the desperate Donkey mouthpiece of former fame and glory claiming for the umpteenth time that the economic recovery is here, should make you wonder.
Scuttlebutt I heard is that when you really break down that 4% growth the NYT claims happened you … Read more
Over the course of Obama’s Presidency, there have been occasional rumblings to impeach him. These rumblings got a little attention a few weeks ago when Sarah Palin — who has no official position with the GOP — called for Obama to be impeached. But for the most part, the idea is being ignored. Conservatives are well aware that Democrats control enough of the Senate to block anything and that an impeachment fight would do little … Read more
