Daily Round Up

When you fail legislatively, you bypass the will of the people.

That's Obama for you.

As I understand it, the ammo he wants to ban by executive action is popular among sportsmen.

Americans were assured it was never going to come to this. Assured, remember? It was all about the background checks!

But this is what passes as 'common sense' among progressives.

Attack people who are not the problem.


Let's see how this asshole judge feels when he gets beaten down with a dumbbell and has his throat slashed.

Piece of shit.


As the world gets richer and more safe, and they become less desperately poor, they'll stop caring about what their prophet said and care more just live like normal people
Except that the spread of Salafism/Wahabism is concurrent with the rise of the Gulf oil economy. OBL came from one of the richest families in the world. His successor is a doctor who is the scion of an elite Egyptian family. Aafia Siddiqui is a PhD in Neuroscience. Hell, if reports are correct, "Jihdai John" lived a comfortable upper middle class life in London and earn a degree in computer programming.

Well, I think that the poor, for the most part, have more concrete problems, like finding food for their bellies. Much like how all the first Communist revolutionaries tended to be idiot sons of the upper middle class, only the rich of Arabia and Pakistan have the time to philosophize and wax poetic about the righteousness of a Caliphate.



Persistent optimism.

"Economic forecasting can be a humbling endeavor. In a cross-country study of private-sector forecasts from 1989 to 1998, Loungani (2001) finds that “the record of failure to predict recessions is virtually unblemished.” He also finds that forecast revisions in one direction tend to be followed by further revisions in the same direction and that one-year-ahead growth forecasts are typically too optimistic. "


NASA employee:

“As a government employee, you can’t testify against the government,” he said in an interview.

Cool story, bra.


This is a pretty cool story. Eight year-old girl feeds crows some peanuts and they pay her back with gifts.

If there's one bird you want on your good side it's crows:
"- Crows remember the faces of "dangerous humans," with the memories likely lasting for a bird's lifetime.
- Crows may scold people who threaten them, bringing in relatives and even strangers to mob the person.
- The crows within mobs then indirectly learn about the person, so they too associate that individual's face with danger and react accordingly...."

Hitchcock knew this well. Even made a wicked movie about it.


What's with The White House and all this calling a Netanyahu a 'chicken shit?' 


I'll just leave this here.



England continues to rot from within.

From Rotherdam to Oxfordshire.

"As many as 373 children may have been targeted for sex by gangs of men in Oxfordshire in the last 16 years, a serious case review found.

The investigation came after a sadistic sex gang of seven men were jailed in 2013 for abusing six girls in Oxford, between 2004 and 2012.

Thames Valley Police and Oxfordshire County Council made "many errors" in that case and could have acted sooner."

Multiculturalism is over rated.


"White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is "very interested" in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action. "

Interesting as it is not surprising.

How long before Americans grasp they have a tyrant in power?

He's like Frank Underwood.

Speaking of which, each time I watch House of Cards I need a shower. If politics is half as sleazy as the overly ambitious and murderous Underwoods, God help us.


Your climate-change masters.

"The only sad thing about the resignation of Dr Rajendra Pachauri as chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is that it was brought about by allegations of sexual harassment by a young female employee of his Delhi research body, The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri), from which he has also now stepped down.

Laughably described as “the world’s leading climate scientist”, this absurd figure, with his PhD in the economics of railway engineering from an obscure US university, should never have been given the job in the first place. As a vegetarian, he jetted round the world exhorting everyone else to save the planet by giving up air travel and meat. Thanks to the prestige of his position, his institute was showered with millions of dollars by international institutions, from global banks to Yale University (not to mention £10 million from British taxpayers)."
