I still remember the first time I ever heard Celtic punk music. That was a good night.
It’s not that your average climate change fanatic acts badly. It’s not even that they cannot act well. It’s that they apparently have no real conception of what ‘acting badly’ and ‘acting well’ even MEAN.

I mean, I don’t have to tell anybody reading this Do not trample a memorial to murdered people. I don’t have to tell the average member of the Democratic party this, either. I probably wouldn’t have to tell a regular, ordinary liberal – well, maybe a few. But most would get it. But God save us from religious fanatics who don’t understand that they’re either…
Specifically: chemical gas attacks.

Once we had boots on the ground, anyway. You see, we used to have this policy: nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons were all classified as something called ‘weapons of mass destruction,’ or WMDs. If you used a WMD on us – or our buddies – we would respond in kind. And since it is American policy to only maintain war stocks of nukes, well… a lot of people figured out that it probably wasn’t safe to use any of that stuff while American troops were in the vicinity. Bad luck, in an actuarial table sort of way.
But that was in the Good Old Days.
Gee, I wonder what kind of terrorists they are: “Gunmen who are said to be holding more than 100 hostages in a siege on a Mali hotel Friday reportedly are forcing their captives to recite verses from the Koran or face death.” Of course, said terrorists’ habit of shouting “Allahu akbar!” as they attack something is usually diagnostic. It’s also an indication that the Left’s weird habit of not being able to say ‘radical Islam’ – no, really: (more…)

You’re killing me here, Donnie. Killing me. This is not helpful. This does not make it easier for me to help present a consistent, conservative vision and message for America. This is why they say, “Do not flap your gums.” Stop flapping your gums, Donnie. Hire some [expletive deleted] who doesn’t like you, and pay him to double-check it when you want to say things like this.
I mean… Jeez, Donnie. You gotta remember all the [expletive deleted] that you say! You just gotta! All the time!
…Arggh. This guy.
Seriously, this is pretty much diagnostic.
Gov. Maggie Hassan said the federal government should “halt acceptance” of Syrian refugees until U.S. authorities can assure the vetting process keeps Americans safe.
The governor’s position is a harder line on the issue than a statement from her office Monday morning, reflecting a growing concern among New Hampshire and U.S. elected leaders after the terrorist attacks in Paris Friday night.
Either that, or it reflects a growing concern among the Maggie Hassan for Senate campaign that taking a soft line would be effective political suicide next year. To the best of my knowledge, Gov. Hassan is practically unique in being a governor running for an elected office next year – but not as an incumbent. I wonder what she would have said if it was just her governor’s seat at risk. I wonder if she wonders, too. (more…)
I mean, fairly solid rumor has it that
King President Karimov has people who displease him boiled alive. Also: under George W Bush we raised so much of a stink over the regime’s human rights abuses that they threw us out of the country. And now John Kerry is sucking up to them.
God, this administration can’t even get human rights right. It’s like they deliberately hate competence. In anything.
I should listen to the rest of this one more often.
