You Can Keep Him

If you are Global Warming, you better have a thick skin, cancer has a better rep. But not to worry, your days are numbered. See, a UK politician has figured it out, to beat you silly they just need to expand foreign aid, money spent over there will fix our climate problems over here, and you thought Joe Biden was a boner;

Eric Pickles: Spend aid abroad to stop flooding in the UK

This shit must be so bad…

And disastrous for the left, because Obama has yet again moved out the Employer Mandate (not to guys going on a date) of Obamacare. From the article:

For the second time in a year, the Obama administration is giving certain employers extra time before they must offer health insurance to almost all their full-time workers. Under new rules announced Monday by Treasury Department officials, employers with 50 to 99 workers will be given until

The Pre-K Product

There is a huge push on now for the government creation of “universal pre-K” with increasing amounts of government control. It’s not going anywhere at the federal level, but Deblassio is trying to raise taxes and close charter schools to fund it in New York. I’ve made my thoughts on the matter quite clear: universal pre-K crosses me as a solution in search of a problem:

As the Reason documentary shows, any gains by

La variété est le piment de la vie.

It really is an unfair advantage, and the main reason they eat our lunch in most elections. It could be that they are more devious, more conniving (they are most certainly better liars, some things just take practice to perfect) or maybe they are more adept at appealing to the baser instincts of their constituents, whatever it is the dems know how to set a table. This week we have been cataloging the most outrageous … Read more

The Threat of Liberty

Via Reason, I found this article which digs into the spate of vehemently anti-Libertarians screeds which have been recently popping up on liberal websites and publications. Salon became a hard-core anti-libertarian site so gradually I hardly even noticed. Slate has been shifting against libertarians. The New Republic published a rancid little article trying to dig into the supposed libertarian ideals of Glenn Greenwald, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. LGF and Balloon Juice have been screaming … Read more

We Decide What is TMI

While reading a story about a public school that got caught overstepping their authority and violating parental rights in the process , a post written last year came to mind. In that incident a HS teacher incurred the wrath of the school board by warning students to be mindful of self implication WRT to an school surveys put in front of them. A 3 day roe ensued, mostly between myself and Thrill. You can peruse … Read more

If this is for real, it is real sad

The Atlantic has an article about where young people today find themselves titled Highly Educated, Highly Indebted: The Lives of Today’s 27-Year-Olds, In Charts, where they ask and answer the question:

What are today’s young adults really like? For those who’ve spent too much time gazing into the dark recesses of Thought Catalog or obsessing over “Girls,” the Department of Education has a new report that offers up some enlightening answers.

Three of the … Read more

Sochi Thread

A few months ago I wrote a post over The America’s Cup, a post highlighting the patriotism of progressives would have gotten more attention, well, I’m doing it again.

For those so inclined to chime in on anything Sochi related, here ya go.

No, I did not watch opening ceremonies last night. I figured Putin would use this to rewrite history and play out sketches of how Russia beat Napoleon single handed, had won WW1 … Read more

European Pussies

Before I get in to the meat of the post, feel free to substitute European for liberal, progressive, or any thin skinned crybaby who makes a living out of victimhood and somehow thinks he/she should be protected from the world meanees out there who just might hurt their feelings, there.

There is a faux outrage story making the rounds about European sensibilities getting irritated by an ambassador making an off color comment. This whole … Read more

Fight The Power, Literally

This is fairly disconcerting:

An attack by snipers on a Silicon Valley power substation last year is prompting the former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to launch a crusade to better secure and defend the nation’s electrical grid.

The former chairman, Jon Wellinghoff, now a San Francisco energy law attorney, called the little-publicized April 2013 attack on the substation a “very well planned, coordinated and executed attack on a major piece of our
