Some interesting connections

Weiners' wife has; married to a Congressman, aide to the SecState and all this in the family...

Remember the Tiger Mom noise? O'Rourke gives us the Irish Setter Dad.

Unless there's a lot more to this case, Judge Jose Longoria should be stripped of that robe. Immediately. For spanking? Jeez.

So Obama waives his own rule to appoint someone from a racist organization to a powerful position, and the racist organization has been getting LOTS of money because of it. Just effing wonderful.

A: This is not exactly a surprise, is it?
B: Really makes you feel safe when a hotel has a 'no guns allowed' policy, doesn't it?
C: Hotel safety systems and firefighters do their best: is that up to a bunch of terrorists deliberately trying to burn the place down?

So the EffingBI can't be bothered to actually, y'know, Investigate(like their name says) before sending the ninja-suited door-kickers in? Jeez.
But Hunter hadn't lived at that address for almost two years, while Adams and his family had been living there for more than a year, according to the lawsuit filed by Adams and 10 other family members.

“Land… cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable….”

Governments must maintain full jurisdiction and exercise complete sovereignty over such land with a view to freely planning development of human settlements….
Guess who?
The founders of this country considered the right to property to be extremely important; transport any of them to now to read this, and they'd ask us why we haven't told this organization to go to hell? And were are our muskets, rifles, powder and ball?

Well, isn't this a fascinating statement from somebody on a SWAT team that recently killed a man guilty of nothing?

Hey, Obama has previously warned us that his plans would cause energy costs to skyrocket; what did those dumbass union reps think, he'd make some exception to cover their jobs and state?

And that's it. For now. Further bitching, yelling and "WTF?!?" later

like any land controlled by the state or anything else controlled by it for that matter is even remotely efficiently managed?

"tragedy of the commons"?

apparently even the ancient Greeks recognized the problem:

check this guy out too, he's the polar opposite of statism;
