The following video is brought to you in the interests of the children. If our actions will save just one of them, it’s worth it.
No word on whether “Sheriff” Joe Biden is going to challenge the opposition.
Nixon’s legacy organization lives on. These days, the EPA is trying to prove that we cannot do anything differently with regard to harvesting hydrocarbons than we have in the past without destroying Gaia. While performing a test to prove a recent hypothesis on fracking, the EPA stumbled across a bit of truth. Natural gas may be found under the earth’s surface: Environmental Protection Agency Strikes Gas! That should have been the headline last week that instead ran as “EPA says fracking may be polluting groundwater.” Here’s the story: the EPA says tests it conducted in Pavillion, Wyoming “indicate that ground….
Or something like that: [National Endowment for the Arts Chairman] Landesman hopes his visit spurs more Dakotans’ interest in the NEA. The endowment’s most recent grants were announced Thursday when it awarded 863 of them worth $22.5 million to organizations and people in 47 states. South Dakota and North Dakota are two of three states not on the list, along Nevada. Landesman says the endowment would like to have a stronger presence in the Dakotas. Well, this taxpayer would like the NEA to continue to not have any presence in the state. I’ll spend my own money on the arts,….
Well, what else am I supposed to take away from this article? Alaska is poised to release more than 24,000 pages of emails sent and received by Sarah Palin during her time as governor, providing an inside look into her rise from obscurity to a spot on the national stage. [...] The state faced a Tuesday deadline for releasing the emails. It is working on the logistics of copying and shipping the documents to the growing list of requesters. [emphasis added] Copying and shipping? Just how many people are requesting 24k pages each of these emails? Please tell me that….
Bill Whittle has some thoughts (by way of Iowahawk) on how we can address our federal government budget woes.
PJ O’Rouke has a few thoughts on the primary source of violence in this country: Because liberals are opposed to violence, which is very high-minded of them. Guns are a source of violence in America. Guns are not, however, the principal source. Young men are the principal source of violence in America. This is why it’s only a matter of time before liberals—being opposed to violence—propose young man control. This will entail: • A thoroughgoing background check of criminal record and mental health status to be required before anyone is allowed to be a young man. A national masculine immaturity database….
He does a good job of it. A few samples: Elsewhere on the disaster scene, Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull (literally, “many syllables”) volcano erupts, sending huge clouds of ash into the atmosphere and forcing airlines throughout northern Europe to ground all flights. Greece, although not directly affected, announces that it will take six months off, just in case; France, as an added precaution, surrenders. In domestic news, Arizona passes a controversial new law designed to crack down on illegal immigrants; this draws a sharp rebuke from the Mexican government, currently headquartered in Tucson. [...] On the terror front, New York City police,….
Not sure who to credit for the following (since I can’t quite read the info in the upper left corner) but it is spot on. HT to ivman.
From the little city that could: Omaha police will hold a gun amnesty day next month. Omaha Police Chief Alex Hayes told Omaha television station KMTV about the June 12 event during the station’s “war on crime” town hall meeting held in Omaha this week. But what about “ice pick amnesty” or “automobile amnesty”? I’ve got it, let’s have “fist amnesty.” After that one, we won’t have to worry about anything, except the kick boxers.
