- Obama: Bush handled Iraq war correctly. Okay, you note no quotation-marks. 0-bama didn't say that in so many words. That would take honesty and humility. But that's the upshot.
- I have a new goal. It's inspired by Rush Limbaugh's very good day. President Obama's
Designated IdiotPress Secretary, Robert Gibbs, said on Tuesday that Limbaugh "doubled down on what he said in January in wishing and hoping for economic failure in this country." Of course anyone who can rub two live neurons together knows that's a lie. Limbaugh wants no such thing. He wants economic success for all Americans, and so necessarily he wants Obama's war on productivity and freedom to fail. Which sparks my goal: I want the Obama administration to start arguing with me in its public statements. (Hey... I can dream, can't I?)
- Obama administration to reverse Hippocratic oath? Instead of "You must do no harm," the 0-vision would appear to be, "You must do harm."
- One senator said that he would not only defy such a policy, he would go to jail rather than comply. Now, I want the big-talkers who say there isn't a dime's worth of difference between the parties, who say pro-life Christians (which should be a hendiadys) can equally support either party, to tell me: to which party do you think that senator belongs? Come on, take a wild guess. Democrat? Republican? Which? (Answer: duh.)
- While we're talking about senators, though by way of starkest contrast.... Remind me: was there a time when being a knight meant something in England? I mean, something good?
- Real science has no philosophy, is strictly materialistic, doesn't mention Darwin, takes no responsibility for social impact of its claims, and opposes academic freedom. What... didn't I read this right?
- Oh, btw. Global warming? A card-carrying scientist just told Congress it's bunk. Well, a whole lot of card-carrying scientists say it's bunk. His actual words were that it is "propaganda, masquerading as science." Again, many say the same. The MSM just doesn't like telling you.
- The Vatican: brilliant, as always. They still think the Bible is wrong about how to be saved; now they think it's wrong about creation, too. So Luther, Calvin, Knox, Owen, Spurgeon, you, me = bad! Darwin, however = good! So, what's that bring the count to, in RCC terms? The Bible is wrong about theology, anthropology, bibliology, soteriology, ecclesiology, hamartiology... good thing we have the RC magisterium to straighten all that out for us!
- Smarter than God Update. Mosaic legislation had no jails. Zero. Closest was the city of refuge, for unintentional homicides. America? One in thirty-one adults is in jail. Why? Therapeutic-mania and over-regulation. The same day you and five friends are locked up for relieving yourselves on a protected weed, a murderer walks free. We do not treat people as morally-responsible human beings created in the image of God, but as wards of the state in need of therapy, or of being caged like animals. Matters would change dramatically if laws were trimmed, murderers were executed, and restitution were enforced on the rest.
- In related news, Arizona's Sheriff Joe Arpaio is famous for making jail time (gasp!) unpleasant. he was recently rewarding with a protest by some unhinged folks. Illegals hate him, so he's a racist.
- Didn't I ever post my idea to appoint myself spokesman for all white people, issue a statement that all white people who commit crimes and murders should be penalized and executed, respectively — and then, after that announcement, I would immediately resign? If so, I can't find the post, though I've searched.
- Relatedly? What do you think of this? I'll admit to uncertainty. I do not love the idea of giving poor, vulnerable kids to adoption by the insane, alcoholics, homosexuals, porn-addicts, child-molestors, drug-addicts or the like... but what should legislation be? What legal guidelines should there be in place?
- Square circles in California. As you all know, practitioners of one particular form of sexual perversion are trying to force acceptance and create rights, at any cost. When they failed at the ballot box, they promised and began to seek an unprecedented (in my memory) course of vengeance and intimidation on voters they'd failed to cow into submission, including the ominous posting of a map that gives the name, address, and donation-amount for all who dared to support Proposition 8. Will they threaten violence against the California Supreme Court as well, I wonder? Their case in attempting to re-thwart the will of the people reportedly isn't going well. Unfortunately, the court seems reluctant to void the "black is white" pieces of paper some now hold.
- What now of the rights of those who won't be forced to call what those poor souls do "marriage"? And what is the road forward? The activists who embrace this particular perversion won't rest until they force it down everyone's throat. And look behind them. They're just the first in line. Who — or what — is next?
- New Zealand unveils its secret weapon. Would have worked on me. At any age.
- Legomaniacs will find this site a lot of fun. Warning to parents: before you direct your kids to the Brick Testament, look it over. Their intent, I think, is not reverent. Some of the images are inappropriate, to say the least.
- Headline of the Week? First candidate: Extremely Rare Bird Photographed for First Time - Then Eaten. (The subtitle wasn't — but should have been — "Locals say 'Tastes like chicken.'")
- Extraordinarily unpleasant public service announcement: thanks (?) to a faithful reader who wishes to remain anonymous. I do recommend that you mute the sound, or your brains may dissolve entirely.
- I love the concept of this Sacred Sandwich parody: the Letters to the Editor that Christianity Today would get if it published Galatians. I may revisit. The problems are twofold: (1) They don't catch the lofty, indignant, self-righteous air of injury and victimhood such letters radiate (hard to parody self-parodies); and (2) CT would never publish Galatians.
- Now this is funny. But I had to think for a second.
- Okay, there definitely should be a law against this. Japanese Giant Hornet.
This puppy gets to be three inches long, and has a stinger that is a quarter-inch long. Its venom is particularly nasty, and can be fatal. As many as forty people a year die from its sting. The Japanese get their revenge by deep-frying these bad boys and eating them. Personally, I see it as a good reason not to move to Japan.
- Now, we all know that Barack Obama is not the first black president. That distinction belongs to Bill Clinton. Toni Morrison told us so. However, with equal validity and soundness of reasoning, we are now told that Obama is our first Muslim president. (h-t Aaron, from this meta.)
- In other news...or, whatever:
