Speaking of jackass, that bozo who got his fifteen minutes of fame by trashing the mother of his child and her family says he lied. Apparently, despite evidence, he retained some actual sense of shame and it caught up to him. Sullivan is inconsolable, and blames conspiracy. Or something.
"We want minority teachers! Even if we have to break the law to get them!" Or something like that.
Britain has been fined more than £150m by the EU for failing to display the European flag on a string of Brussels-funded projects, it is reported.
I'd suggest a new headline: "Brussels outraged as representatives tarred and feathered and thrown in the Channel"
One of those "Which is it?" things: with the 'Justice' Department weenies shielding the Panthers from prosecution, do these clowns not realize that if people know the Department will not impartially enforce the voting rights laws that people are liable to, say, remove threateners themselves? With all the noise that'll bring? Or do they consider that a feature?
Brit politicians want to basically hand their defense off to someone else. That'll work just great, won't it?
I think Shortshanks Daley & Co. know full well they're going to cost the city another fortune with this crap; they just don't care. After all, the money isn't coming out of THEIR pockets. And, again, they just can't stand that they've been told "You can't do whatever you want." Fact is, making exercise of a right so difficult and expensive that many- may be most- cannot do so is pretty much the same as trashing the right completely, and that's a Bad Thing. Again, they don't care; they only care that they keep forcing people to act as The Turd & Co. have decided they should.
Only thing I'll say on this celebutard: it's a bitch when you're held to account for what you've done, isn' t it?
They're predicting more bloody rain today, so I have to now drag myself out and take care of some things. Assuming I don't sink into the ground in places.
Added: well, from dew it's still so damned wet I can't do what I wanted to. So I'll add a bit more:
Eech. The Navy better get this crap straightened up. Fast.
As Unc says, This? On NPR?
The Supreme Court's rejection of Chicago's handgun ban in McDonald v. City of Chicago is more than a recognition that the Second Amendment applies to the states as well as the federal government. The McDonald decision is a harbinger for the end of gun prohibition as an idea. The simple, undeniable truth is that gun control does not work.
From Tam, looking for a 1911? Here's one on auction with a very good recipient for the funds.
The National Security Agency has begun work on an "expansive" spy system that will monitor critical infrastructure inside the United States for cyber-attacks, in a move that detractors say could end up violating privacy rights and expanding the NSA's domestic spying abilities.
The Wall Street Journal cites unnamed sources as saying that the NSA has issued a $100-million contract to defense contractor Raytheon to build a system dubbed "Perfect Citizen," which will involve placing "sensors" at critical points in the computer networks of private and public organizations that run infrastructure, organizations such as nuclear power plants and electric grid operators.
In an email obtained by the Journal, an unnamed Raytheon employee describes the system as "Big Brother."
Oh, that's just freakin' wonderful, isn't it?
I'm REALLY going to close for now with two of Obama's disgusting appointees:
Berwick argued that purposely provided an inadequate supply of health-care—as Britain’s health-care system does—is superior to allowing the market to provide an excess.
“In America, the best predictor of cost is supply; the more we make, the more we use—hospital beds, consultancy services, procedures, diagnostic tests,” Dr. Berwick wrote. “… Here, you choose a harder path. You plan the supply; you aim a bit low; you prefer slightly too little of a technology or a service to too much; then you search for care bottlenecks and try to relieve them.”
That's from a 2008 journal article praising Britain's NHS, the public-sector equivalent of K-Mart.
And there's this, too, which reads like a blurb on the Big Book of British Smiles or the tag line to the Nanny McPhee sequel:
This bastard PLANS on having inadequate resources for health care; he LIKES the idea.
“Cynics beware, I am romantic about the National Health Service; I love it. … The NHS is one of the astounding human endeavours of modern times.”
The other socialist asshole Obama has saddled us with:
John P. Holdren, who then-President-elect Barack Obama nominated as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in December 2008, called just five months before his nomination for a global climate-change agreement that would allow wealth to be redistributed from countries in the global “North” to countries in the “South.”
Dedevelopment, Holdren argued at the time, would set an example for developing countries and show “that being a citizen of a giant, smoggy, freeway-strangled industrial state is not necessary to being a happy, healthy, fulfilled human being.”
But being stuck in a third-world hellhole with insufficient power, food and medicine IS necessary, apparently. One more piece of "You peasants need to stay in your picturesque little dung-hut villages, tilling the soil with homemade tools; we like it better that way" bullshit.
Maybe they're hoping that if they destroy the economy enough, there won't be enough rope?
