between the "We only tolerate unarmed peasants" attitude and social-control stupidity like this, screw the place.
Speaking LE Behaving Badly and Getting Away With It... the theft is bad, but that clown with a badge in Florida needs to be in a cell.
You've undoubtedly heard that Obama has decided to ensure high energy prices and dependance on hostile foreign governments. Gee, it's like he actually MEANT that his plans would make energy costs skyrocket...
Over at Drudge:
Dems dispute 22,000 jobs created by 1,700-mile oil pipeline...
SF Dems say 43,000 jobs created -- by 1.7-mile subway extension!
This guy did his job; for that matter there were people on the ship, crew and entertainers, who stepped up.
"But why is someone who does his job and sticks to the rules suddenly a hero in Italy?" one Internet commentator wondered.
Not that long ago, he and the crew members, the men who made sure women and kids got on the boats first, would've been hailed as being what they were supposed to be; and you can bet a lot of them would've been embarrassed, because "This is what you're supposed to do, to be".
Speaking of idiot energy ideas...
Michael McNally, who was visiting Dallas Tuesday, said an app shouldn’t have enough power to label a community.
“It may have a high crime problem but have some great cultural, social things you can do there,” McNally said.
Ok, so let's say the app tells you "If you go here, here are the crime stats"; would that be allowable, or would that be too much?
Well, this fits: tell Iran it has nothing to fear at the same time he says "No pipeline." That's a fine combination.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday sought to distance Democrats from the left-leaning Occupy movement that’s swept the nation in recent months.
Pelosi argued that the movement is largely nonpartisan, unlike the conservative Tea Party camp, which she characterized as an extension of the GOP.
The comments are something of a departure from the Democrats’ message last year, when a number of liberal party members, including Reps. John Larson (Conn.), Louise Slaughter (N.Y.), Raúl Grijalva (Ariz.) and Keith Ellison (Minn.), went out of their way to embrace the Occupy movement in the face of GOP criticisms.
It's like smoke-bombing the White House and various other crimes make her want some distance, or something.
Back to energy 'necessarily skyrocketing':
An Associated Press analysis has found that more than 32 mostly coal-fired power plants in a dozen states will be forced to close because of the new, more stringent regulations. Another 36 plants are at risk of closing.
No lights will go dark. But the Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that 14.7 gigawatts — enough power for more than 11 million households — will be retired from the power grid in the 2014-15 period when the rules take effect. One rule curbs air pollution in states downwind from dirty power plants. Another sets first standards for mercury and other toxic pollutants from smokestacks.
The effect is greatest in the Midwest and in coal belt states such as Virginia and West Virginia, where dozens of units are likely to shut down.
I'd translate 'No lights will go dark NOW." Get a cold or hot spell where remaining generation is already at capacity...
Tam find a, ah, 'interesting' special edition from SIG. From the comments:
To bad, Greece couldn’t afford this if they sold the rest of their arsenal.
Also noted in comments, some people are not happy with QC at SIG; apparently things have slipped. Maybe a lot.
Also from Tam:
Anybody notice that the very same #OCCUPY_MOM'S_BASEMENT crowd that froths at the mouth over the dangers of "corporate speech" corrupting the political process was just tickled pink to see Google change it's logo for the SOPA/PIPA protests yesterday? I'm sure that once the HuffPosers and Kossacks were done patting Google on the back for its corporate citizenship, they went back to making fun of Romney for being a "flip-flopper".
Yeah, a number of people have noted this. What, you expect consistency from these clowns?
On the SOPA bullcrap,
And while you may have not paid much attention to this story, you need to know that the “muzzle the web” legislation these sites are protesting could also affect your ability to get gun-related information on websites like GOA’s.
The reason is that S. 968 could, in its final form, allow the Brady Campaign to partially shut down our GOA website and our organization (plus many other pro-gun websites) with a series of factually accurate, but legally frivolous complaints.
He's not kidding, turn the volume DOWN. And, along with everything else, you'll notice no protective gear. At all. 'Doofus' isn't even close.
And that's about all I can take for one morning.
