Warning: this post is not from a science fiction movie. These two police officers were caring for each other’s children, as they worked different shifts. England’s Children’s Minister (yes, there is one) stated that the arrangement broke the 2006 Childcare Act because it lasted for longer than two hours a day, and constituted receiving “a [...]

The 401k Usurpers Are Back

Monday, September 28, 2009 12:39 2 Comments

Actually, they never left. Except the media calls them “the experts.” This article, “Experts push retirement plan reform,” discusses the agenda of Teresa Ghilarducci, a Communistic redistributionist who I have discussed in several previous posts. She has been pushing the nationalization of retirement savings through the use of GRAs, or, Guaranteed Retirement Accounts. This whole [...]

Saggy Baggy Drawers

I thought this piece in the New York Times was ripe for the times – especially the photos. Then I get to this excerpt from the author, Tracey Lloyd. And what about those skinny jeans for men? Unless you’re built like the lead singer of the All-American Rejects, you’ll look like a Weeble wobbling in [...]

Who Needs Privacy?

Here’s an old column from a Canadian, Robert J. Sawyer, who reflects on the glories of a world with no privacy – in the name of anti-terrorism and individual “security.” It’s a great example – and reminder – of post-September 11, 2001 lunacy. His idea: But imagine a permanently activated recorder: a small implant, say, [...]

An LRC blogger once asked me (paraphrase), “Why is it that of all the posts that I make, blogging social criticism causes me to receive more deranged, venomous emails than anything else I write?” I said, “Welcome to the world of nihilistic ‘libertarians,’ Mr. ______.” When I posted this story about the cops who started [...]

Glory, glory, hallelujah! His (Obama’s) truth is marching on.

Neocons on FOX News have been scolding the revelation, this morning, of a video of New Jersey schoolchildren being taught to memorize praise, poetry, and song worshipping the Imperial King. The entire three minutes of the video is disturbing. These children have absolutely no idea what they are praising, or why. What they are being [...]

Cops Halt Drug Bust to Play Wii

Police in Florida stormed a home to search for drugs. Some of them searched the house looking for their booty. The others? They found a Wii game and began to play. While some detectives hauled out evidence such as flat screen televisions and shotguns, others threw strikes, gutter balls and worked on picking up spares. [...]

Camera Wench

The Great One was on the Letterman show, what, last night? His ego can’t get enough airtime. It was Mr. Obama’s sixth appearance on Mr. Letterman’s “Late Show,” but the first on the show by a sitting president. It is also Mr. Obama’s seventh TV gig in less than 48 hours. On Sunday, the president [...]

Lou Dobbs is Pro-Secession

Monday, September 21, 2009 16:37 No Comments

From MediaMatters: On the September 17 broadcast of his radio show, Lou Dobbs hosted Tenth Amendment Center founder Michael Boldin and repeatedly “urge[d]” his listeners to visit the group’s “very interesting” website. The site, among other things, has published or reprinted several articles advocating secession from the United States. It makes sense that Lou Dobbs, [...]

Well, Like, a Stupid Woman Story, You Know?

Sometimes I get emails that leave me dumbfounded. It amazes me how many people write me each week, each day, and are totally insulting to me while trying to be nice, and then when (and if) I respond as any self-respecting, insulted person should respond, I am greeted with shock and amazement. I received an [...]
