A few years back I remarked that the average respectable middle class male had committed hundreds of felonies, each worth many years jail time. Things have become worse since then: (more…)
Or rather the ideology of global warming causes mandatory evacuation. The actual weather was merely an unusually wet and windy weekend, slippery roads and slightly more falling trees than usual. In New York, the storm caused subways to shut down and loss of power – well actually the storm did not cause either one. Politicians panicked by fear of the wrath of Gaea shut down power and subways.
When the left, aka the government, wants an opponent or apostate harmed or killed, they don’t do it the way totalitarian regimes do it. It is more like “Who will rid me of this turbulent priest”. And that is what we are now hearing. (more…)
After the earthquake, Haiti suffered something even more devastating than an earthquake, something even more devastating than a genetically low IQ population, something far more brutal and destructive than rule by genetically low IQ overlords.
Worse than cholera, worse than the earthquake, Haiti suffered a devastating influx of aid agencies and high IQ Harvard graduates with billions of dollars of aid money. (more…)
Brad deLong tells us:

On the campaign trail, seeking the republican presidential nomination, he piously bows his head in prayer, he supposedly doubts evolution, but he imposed on Texas schools a course denigrating Christianity and whitewashing Islam. (more…)
Rick Perry proposed to give every female child Gardasil vaccine at government expense.
Gardasil protects against a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer in women and male homosexuals. It rarely affects male heterosexuals in advanced countries. The vaccine is expensive, and has dangerous side effects, so should only be given to those that need it:
sluts sexually active females and gays. If a girl is planning to ride the cock carousel, then she should definitely take it shortly before she starts. (more…)
Commentary magazine spots a rewrite in progress. I just checked his claim by comparing the current version of the state department 2002 list of consulates against the google cached version of that list. In google’s cached version, the US in 2002 recognized Jerusalem as part of Israel. In the live version from the state departments servers, not only does no one in the world now recognize Jerusalem as part of Israel, the US back in 2002 did not recognize Jerusalem as part of Israel either.
