“Fool me once…”

Like many other newspapers, the Detroit Free Press has decided that it is time to declare all out war on climate change. In an editorial titled “A war on climate change,” they assert that because the scientific community “speaks with one voice” Obama should violate the Constitution by issuing Executive Orders to circumvent Congress no […]

Nigger Rules

Not Safe For Work Brought on by the George Zimmerman trial.

The Answer

Not Safe For Work I have only watched the first few minutes. I liked them.

Have a heart! (Preferably with with some fava beans and a nice Chianti….)

The other night it occurred to me that the following headlines were related: This one: IRS auditor reaffirms that conservatives, not liberals, were targeted And this one 26% of Obama Supporters View Tea Party as Nation’s Top Terror Threat Had to read that again. Here’s the explanation: …among those who approve of the president’s job […]

Prosecutor’s Case Against Zimmerman Explodes

I have been following the case by internet video feed. At Legal Insurrection guest poster Andrew Branca comments: A neighbor, John Good, who witnessed the fight between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman has just devastated the State’s case, testifying that he saw the fight between the two, that Trayvon was on top punching Mixed Martial […]

David Duke Is Publishing A Book

On Stalin’s Jewish mass murderers. From Ynet News: Within Russia itself, very few people have been brought to justice for their crimes in the NKVD’s and KGB’s service. The Russian public discourse today completely ignores the question of “How could it have happened to us?” As opposed to Eastern European nations, the Russians did not […]

“police don’t suspect prostitution”

And if you look at the mug shot of the female suspect who got arrested for having sex in a city park, you will understand why. These cops needed this image burned into their minds like a fish needs a bicycle. […] Around 4 p.m. yesterday, the bicycle cops were finishing up their daily ride in […]

Forgive? Says who? And why?

An article in the Huffington Post got me to thinking about forgiveness. The topic was whether the founder of Exodus (“cure” gays through religion) should be forgiven now that he has publicly apologized. I have no problem forgiving him for what he has done to me, for the simple reason that he did nothing to […]

A real hero — against all odds

Here’s a man in San Francisco who behaved so heroically that I think the story deserves more media attention: A man whose home in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood was invaded by three robbers early Tuesday managed to wrestle away one of the assailant’s guns and use it to critically wound him, police said. The chaotic incident […]

Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey – Drops Out Of Anti-Gun Coalition

Mayor drops out of Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition, says ‘focus should not be against law-abiding citizens’. An independent Illinois mayor is leaving New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition because he said the group strayed from its original mission and became too focused on pushing for an assault-weapons ban. “I’ve dropped out of a group […]

Who gets away with what?

Glenn Reynolds linked a very amusing Buzzfeed piece with the following title: 7 Things Democrats Would Have Freaked Out About If Bush Had Done Them Obama’s national security policy has continued some of the most controversial moves of the Bush administration. Silence from the left. Check out the pictures. Obama is not only getting away with […]

Freeing Finances vs. Feeding Fenrir

Scott Sumner notes decreasing hostility to the notion of monetary stimulus on the left, with Martin Wolf’s latest post as Exhibit A: As you’d expect, Martin Wolf’snew piece in the NYR of Books ends up in a suitably ecumenical fashion: The right approach to a crisis of this kind is to use everything: policies that […]

The FBI and Homeland Security are all atwitter over a stupid opinion

A Twitterer calling himself “Kris_Mexicanese” has been having fun testing the limits of the First Amendment. The FBI has been all over him, and I’m sure Homeland Security is watching his every move. Reason? He joked about the Boston bombing and predicted that it might happen again in Miami. MIAMI (CBSMiami) – As the Miami […]

We are all a bunch of un-apprehended felons

Thanks to Sarah Hoyt, I found this monstrosity: Have you ever thrown out some junk mail that came to your house but was addressed to someone else? That’s a violation of federal law punishable by up to 5 years in prison. That’s just one example from a piece on overcriminalization. We are, literally, screwed. In […]

Amusing Commentary

At Watts Up With That: == The science is settled…..we don’t know, and we are sure of that. == If you have two different computer models, it is obvious that at least one of them must be wrong. And if the two of them give you the same result, then the two of them are […]

Jupiter – The Planets – Holst

One of my very favorites. I have been listening to this for over 50 years. It brings back my youth. In spirit anyway. Performance by James Levine and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

So where are my SAT scores?

Via Glenn Reynolds’ link to Roger L. Simon, I just learned something interesting: In the new world of the NSA, the only secret left is Barack Obama’s college grades. Which comes on the heels of another NSA story: The National Security Agency has spent years demanding that companies turn over their data. Now, the spy agency […]

Last straw for the brokeback camel?

The other day I read that Exodus International — a religious group claiming to cure homosexuality through prayer — is shutting down its operations. That’s right. They will no longer “treat” gays, and they have  even apologized! This startling and unexpected development has been called “huge news” and has had a lot of people shaking their […]

Little wonder the former suckers are going Galt

After discussing the insider financial shenanigans of successful crooks like Al Gore, NRO’s Jim Geraghty has an interesting observation: It is no wonder that more and more Americans believe the game is rigged. It is no wonder that they buy houses they cannot afford and then walk away from the mortgage when they can no […]

To rebel is to conform

A WSJ article on teen peer pressure fascinated me because I can remember what it was like, and I was reminded that the whole deal is a two-edged sword: New studies on peer pressure suggest that teens—who often seem to follow each other like lemmings—may do so because their brains derive more pleasure from social […]
