Insanity in Merry ol' England

Apparently the inmates are running the asylum… er, Island.

Great Moments in Progressive History.

“Wilson's historical reputation is that of a far-sighted progressive.”

“One legacy of post-Civil War Republican ascendancy was that Washington's large black populace had access to federal jobs, and worked with whites in largely integrated circumstances. Wilson's cabinet put an end to that, bringing Jim Crow to Washington.

“Wilson allowed various officials to segregate the toilets, cafeterias, and work areas of their departments.”

“Wilson's own view, as he expressed it to intimates, was that federal segregation was an act of kindness.”

Wow! Now we're up to $150 dollars a pop! (via @beercrafting on twitter)

Given the price, I think it would be more economical for an unemployed person like myself to stick with “Mad Dog 20/20”. However, considering my past, anything over 6% is NOT a good idea.

An Open Letter to Friends, Family, and Whoever the Hell looks at this Blog.

Dear Friends,

Warmest holiday greetings.

As you may well know, I have been unemployed now for o’er fourscore by two days and nigh on two fortnights. I hope you are all doing well.

As you sit before your lavish feasts this holiday season, I was hoping that you might find some small way to remember those of us who are less fortunate. I myself have been trying to supplement my meager stipend from my government unemployment insurance, by laboriously slaving away at this electronic blog. As you may remember from the past, I have occasionally, humbly, and with no small amount of embarrassment and shame, entreated you all in the mildest manner I am capable of, to possibly “click” one of the advertisements that are displayed on said blog. I know this will require a mighty collective effort from you, my friends. You will be forced to exert great effort and moral fortitude to move your mouse pointer approximately three inches to the left margin. There you will heroically have to summon a herculean effort to press the left mouse button – neigh, not the right, but the notorious (and sinister) left button, upon one of said advertisements displayed thereon. Then following a brief, but poignant pause, you shall dutifully, but courageously and swiftly, bring the aforementioned mouse pointer to the “x” in the upper right corner of the advertisement window, and thusly dispatch the evil thing with a slight contraction of the muscles of your collective index fingers.

 Now I know this is asking a lot – and I wouldn’t blame you, if you honorably declined said action, since I’m sure you have many, many more important things to do, and I am almost ashamed to ask you to perform such a risky and trying action – an action that will only allow me to buy a few useless Christmas trinkets for the needy children in my neighborhood anyway (and possibly with enough left over to buy a few scraps of bread for my own sustenance) – hardly worth such a noble effort on your part. But if you decide to make this great sacrifice on my behalf, I shall be eternally grateful, and will remember you in all my prayers for all the remaining miserable days of my short life.

Humbly yours,
Low On Prozac

ps. If you don’t click my ads, I hope you get toe fungus.

Tiger finally makes a statement.

How is the Progressive Media going spin this?

It was the work of the Tea Party folks, right-wing talk radio, Christian terrorists, Conservatives in general, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Fox News, George Bush, etc., etc., etc.
OR
Obviously the right-wing caused these murders by inciting Progressives to murder.

I wonder if BHO is going to say the cops acted stupidly.

(ps. By Progressive media I mean, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, NPR, The New York Times, The Guardian, etc., etc., in other words, mind-numbed Liberal Arts majors.)

More Politically Correct Murders?

You better watch Fox News if you want to hear about this:

“ … which police have since called a ‘domestic terrorist event.’"

(See earlier post on the murders of 5 police officers.)

Real Terrorism from the Left.

Another example of “Progressive” terrorism? I wonder how the MSM will minimize this. I also wonder if this is linked to the new "Progressive" re-education programs.
Is there a connection to this guy?
...
"Wegner says Monfort told him he "wanted to make a difference in society" so he suggested law school."
...
"While in the UW scholarship program, Monfort focused on the work of Paul Butler, a law professor at George Washington University. Butler is a proponent of a controversial tactic known as jury nullification, whereby a jury can ignore a judge's instructions and acquit defendants, especially black defendants convicted of a non-violent crime, no matter how strong the case against them.
'It is the moral responsibility of black jurors to emancipate some guilty black outlaws,' Butler wrote in a 1995 Yale Law Journal article, adding: 'My goal is the subversion of American criminal justice, at least as it now exists.'" (Italics mine.)

Sounds like the Progressives are getting violent in their plan to reshape American ideals and philosophy. I’m not surprised it’s happening in Washington state.

But it’s gonna help the poooooooooorrrr!! (via @douglasernstYLP on twitter)

Hurting the Poor.
...
"So a company could save $3,000 by hiring, say, someone with a working spouse or a teenager with working parents, rather than a single mother with three children."
...
"Seriously bad policy. In other words, employers will have a strong tax incentive to lay off the workers who need the jobs most -- people without other sources of income."

The "Brave New" American Schools (via @LizBlaine on twitter)

This is (to use a Progressive wuss word) CHILLING!
"'The first step toward "cultural competence," says the task group, is for future teachers to recognize – and confess – their own bigotry. Anyone familiar with the re-education camps of China's Cultural Revolution will recognize the modus operandi,' she said"
"What if some aspiring teachers resist this effort at thought control and object to parroting back an ideological line as a condition of future employment?" she posed. "The task group has Orwellian plans for such rebels: The U, it says, must 'develop clear steps and procedures for working with nonperforming students, including a remediation plan.'"
...
"Further, the letter noted, 'the college in its proposal promises to start screening its applicants to make sure they have the proper "commitments" and "dispositions."'"
"'Here's the kicker,' FIRE said in its report. 'The college even realizes that its efforts to impose such a severe ideological litmus test may be unconstitutional.'"
"The letter cited a proposal to consult with the university's own lawyers."

At 50 bucks a pop I think I'll stick with Miller Lite.

I'll bet 18 of these ought to make for some interesting texting and/or Internet chats:

"Family holidays can be stressful. And hitting the hard liquor will just cause lips to be pursed and tuts to be tutted. But the solution is here in the form of 32 per cent alcohol beer.

"The beer is called Tactical Nuclear Penguin. The brewers, called BrewDog, are in Scotland. Both of these facts make perfect sense. The BBC report that it will sell for $50 a bottle and that the label will have the following warning:

'This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.'

"Expect to see it in the hands of homeless people, who will enjoy it with an air of desperate diligence like they would enjoy lighter fluid, stealing someone's shoes or a visit from a friendly yet anxious police officer."

I'd imagine you'd probably see more than anxious ghosts - probably a lot of anxious pink elephants.

Humm, 79%? Sounds like an improvement over Vista.

First programmable quantum computer created.

My two cents on Climategate

As a Libertarian, my problem with Global Warming is not that it is false, but that it’s being politicized. It’s obvious that it’s being used to promote governmental intervention and the suppression of individual rights. Is the science really good enough to require draconian governmental intervention? Is the evidence really good enough that it predicts the end of the world in the near future? It kind of reminds me of preachers giving Hellfire and Brimstone sermons – scare the Hell out of the congregation and then pass the collection plate – good way to accumulate power.

Progressives are losing the comedy arms race - they have been reduced to smug “na, na, naa, na, naaaaaa, naaa” name calling, but their amazing hypocrisy is providing nuclear fuel to the parody centrifuges of sites like this and this.

This is embarrassing!

Al Gore makes a complete fool of himself!!

At least the ones I’ve dated…

I feel that women put too much emphasis on things like, wealth, looks, power, virility, and wealth.

Progressives: Master Revisionists.

This fairy tale quote by John Kerry (Newsweek 11/16/09) made me laugh out loud:
“With Afghanistan, as with Vietnam, we have a president facing pressure from the military. President Kennedy was strong enough to refuse to be pushed into combat operations. His successor, President Johnson, feared a public dispute with his commanders, so he failed to stand up to them when they insisted that the United States was headed for disaster without an escalation.”
Johnson, who the Progressives despised during his presidency, can be disparaged as a weakling who knuckled under to the evil military. But you see – it wasn’t his fault! He was still a good Progressive Democrat; the evil right-wing military FORCED him into escalating the Vietnam War!
On the other hand, Kennedy, a minor president (whose only claims to fame were avoiding a nuclear war that he had, himself, almost foolishly caused, and making a supply-side tax cut), but a Democrat patron saint, is shown as a strong man willing to stand up to the same dastardly evil military war-mongers.
The Progressives are master history revisionists: America was a colonialist empire, Nixon was responsible for Vietnam, Kennedy was assassinated by right-wingers, even the word “Liberal” was stolen by Progressives in the early 20th century (as outlined in “The Commanding Heights”, by Yergin & Stanislaw) – it actually meant what is known today as “Classical Liberalism”, essentially modern Libertarianism.

It was the right call.

Not only because of the math, but because of this:
"In terms of the rest of the season, would you rather have your team lose and the blame placed on your coach for a “bonehead move”, or lose and have your defense questioned for its inability to hold a lead?"

Let’s see… gonna check my AdSense earnings…

OK, been running for over a month, and… Wow! Only $5987.96 until I can get a Real Doll.
(Better check for an Obama “sin” tax.)

Obama uses my tax money to nationalize industries and all I get is a bunch of lousy bankrupt car companies and banks. Why not the latex sex doll industry? Is it too small to bother with? (Hum, now where have I?.. never mind.)

They’ll have gone 'round the world before I get showered and dressed...

and probably landed.

Maybe I can finally get off unemployment.

At last, a job I’m qualified for!

Life ain’t fair – I’ll bet her blog actually makes money.

Who needs innovation? You Go Obama-care!

Got my Prozac in yesterday. Now just waiting on my statins and acid reflux meds and I’ll be all set. NICE! We don’t need no stupid innovation!

“NICE's real mission is to protect the British health-care budget. Since 2000 it has denied patients the ability to use the newest cancer drugs--by my count, in 226 different indications where American insurers, and Medicare, currently pay, and where the National Comprehensive Cancer Network says there is ‘high-level evidence’ or ‘uniform consensus’ of clinical benefit. Cancer survival rates in the U.K. are substantially lower than in the U.S. and the gap continues to widen.”

“Mr. Obama's policies on drug access and his party's plans to control pricing will distort the financial incentives that inspire innovations. This will shortchange the contributions innovations provide.”

Something I better not try:

I better not try this, given my history.

Presolar dust particles

"Dust samples collected by high-flying aircraft in the upper atmosphere have yielded an unexpectedly rich trove of relicts from the ancient cosmos, report scientists from NAI’s Carnegie Institution of Washington team in Earth and Planetary Science Letters. The stratospheric dust includes minute grains that likely formed inside stars that lived and died long before the birth of our sun, as well as material from molecular clouds in interstellar space. This “ultra-primitive” material likely wafted into the atmosphere after the Earth passed through the trail of an Earth-crossing comet in 2003, giving scientists a rare opportunity to study cometary dust in the laboratory."

Trade Wrongly Blamed for Unemployment

More myth busting:
"I’m waiting for a front-page story on all the newspaper workers who have lost their jobs because of the Internet, or the 30,000 workers laid off by Kodak in the past 5 years because of the spread of digital cameras and plunging film sales, or the book stores and record stores that have shut down and laid off workers because of Amazon.com and iTunes."

Good Night, Lou!

"I would argue that his very act of resigning from his prime-time perch is probably the best contribution he’s made yet to advancing 'rigorous empirical thought.'"

Great article by Michael Barone (via @sanuzis on twitter)

A world turned upside down:

“In response to Maj. Nidal Hassan's mass murders at Ft. Hood, Obama and top officials -- Gen. George Casey and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano -- seem less worried about whether military and civilian officials ignored clear signs that this man was an Islamist terrorist and more worried about whether ordinary Americans might indiscriminately stage mass attacks on Muslims.”

The Capitalist Pig busts another myth.

To default on a loan is one thing. But to default and blame the lender -- that takes moxie.

Bwah, ha, ha, haaaaa!

Spitzer to Give Lecture at Harvard Ethics Center.

Another sad inevitability.

It’s pretty clear that the Ft. Hood tragedy was exacerbated by a combination of political correctness and gun control. The mass casualties are the simply avoidable result of disarming everyone. Another repeat of Columbine, Virginia Tech, Luby’s, etc., etc.

Dodd is just angling for a better mortgage deal than he got from Countrywide.

Yeah, this ought to fix things. Just like Sarbanes-Oxley did:

"Senate Democrats on Tuesday proposed stripping the Federal Reserve of its supervisory powers and creating instead three new federal agencies to police banks, protect consumers and dismantle failing institutions.

"The 1,136-page bill, released by Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, would represent a significant shift in power in federal oversight of the U.S. market."

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

"Berkshire quarterly net income more than doubles"

I’m tried of Buffet winning - I’ll fix his ass! I’m gonna buy some of his damn stock!

The hoop jumping begins.

The left-wing main-stream media has started their mind bending attempt to blame the Ft. Hood shooting on anything, and everything, but the shooter. First, Bush did it:

“Hasan's perspective is unknown. He had yet to fight abroad. But the accusations against him can't help but bring to mind the violence scarring military bases all over the country after the duration of two long, brutal wars.”

And here we get a policy suggestion:

“… it isn't much of a leap to argue that to further tax our military would do as much as anything to guarantee that the homegrown terror on display today could well repeat itself in the future.”

I’m sure this is just one small example of the flood breaking out of the MSM.

I agree.

"... the realization that human nature precludes utopian social arrangements ..."

Murderous Idealism
...
"The media's fleeting attention to the momentous events of the late 1980s and early 1990s matched their earlier indifference to communist systems. There is little public awareness of the large-scale atrocities, killings and human rights violations that occurred in communist states, especially compared with awareness of the Holocaust and Nazism (which led to to far fewer deaths)."
...
"In the aftermath of the fall of Soviet communism, many Western intellectuals remain convinced that capitalism is the root of all evil. There has been a long tradition of such animosity among Western intellectuals who gave the benefit of doubt or outright sympathy to political systems that denounced the profit motive and proclaimed their commitment to create a more humane and egalitarian society, and unselfish human beings. The failure of communist systems to improve human nature doesn't mean that all such attempts are doomed, but improvements will be modest and are unlikely to be attained by coercion."

Why I oppose heterosexual marriage (licensing):

The state shouldn’t be licensing marriage in the first place - hetero, homo, or otherwise, IMHO. The less licensing of EVERYTHING the better. Gay marriage legislation is an attempt to get the same special favors from the government as hetero marriage. Gay marriage IS legal - as is Tree marriage, Car marriage, Football marriage, etc., it’s just not state licensed! I’d like to purpose banning state licensing of ALL marriage, thank you. Besides, I’m single, if Gays and Straights have a license, why can’t I?

The Intrade Prediction Market is showing a VERY slight edge for Corzine recently. This is NOT the poll to bet against. I suspect that traders are hedging for the possible “recount” that will more than likely go in Corzine’s favor.
