Does the looting and vandalism in Ferguson, Mo. have anything in common with the Boston Tea Party in 1773?

It does if you ask these people:

Dear Ferguson “Protesters”

26 Nov

Originally posted on The Liberty Zone:

Not that I was surprised by your savage behavior after the grand jury failed to return an indictment of Darren Wilson but still, it’s pretty appalling to watch you fucking Neanderthals loot and destroy the property of innocent people merely because you disagreed with a legal decision.

The evidence didn’t bear out the testimony of your lying “eyewitnesses,” who are probably lucky they’re not being charged with perjury. Scientific evidence. Science. It doesn’t lie.

And because the jury chose to base its decision on the actual physical evidence presented, rather than the shrieking, screeching, race-baiting howls of cro-magnon barbarians, you decided you were entitled to either steal or destroy the property of others, who had nothing to do with said decision? To protest what you claim to be “injustice,” – even though the legal system worked as it was supposed to and the grand jury made its decision based on forensic…

Whew! That bird’s really getting stale, isn’t it?! Why wasn’t it thrown out with the rest of the stuffing? The America political system sure seems weird to us unlettered socialist Canadians. But at least we still control our own currency, eh!

New Algae Virus Makes People Stupid, Could Create Subspecies

24 Nov Featured Image -- 8747

Originally posted on The Barbed Wire:

LINCOLN, NE (The Barbed Wire) – Researchers in a lab at the University of Nebraska say they have discovered that when the algae virus enters the brain, it disrupts cognitive functioning, basically making the host more stupid. Of the ninety participants in the study, forty tested positive for the virus, and all forty of those morons admitted to being reality TV junkies.

Dr. Daniel Snyder told us, “What we could be looking at is a subspecies within our own culture. These people were showing below average intellect, had liberal tendencies, and consumed numerous hours each day of low-end reality TV. I’m afraid we may be looking at a group one might call the “Kardaschiacrats.” And that’s not good for anybody.”

Dr. Snyder said he observed the infected subjects showing signs of entitlement, an exaggerated fear of climate change, yet couldn’t tell you who the Vice-President is – which is shocking…

Education that works

National Geographic, Grosvenor Auditorium
1600 M Street, NW
Washington, DC 20036

AEI’s exclusive Vision Talks series convenes America’s leading scholars, thinkers, and practitioners to offer fresh perspectives on key areas of policy and public debate. These talks will be filmed and disseminated as standalone videos, such as Robert Doar’s “What works in helping the poor?” talk.

In the United States, we think of education as the key to equal opportunity. But while spending on education is higher than ever, student achievement — particularly for disadvantaged students — has not kept pace.

Myriad government efforts to improve educational attainment have shown mixed results at best. Is conventional thought on reforming education misguided? Is there a better way to foster excellence? What can parents, educators, and citizens do about it, and how can they make an effective case for change?

Please join us for four concise talks on why America needs to rethink education, what that thinking looks like in practice, and how compelling communication can turn ideas into action.
This event will not be live streamed.

Florida State shooter

21 Nov

Originally posted on The Liberty Zone:

According to a police source, the guy who shot three people at Florida State University yesterday is Myron May. Here’s a profile. He was a lawyer who graduated from the university with a B.A. in economics in December 2005, and then proceeded to get his JD from Texas Tech University School of Law in December 2009.

The gun grabbers’ usual cacophony of “MOAR GUN CONTROLZ LAWZ” has already begun on my Twitter feed.

None of them can tell us which gun control initiative they advocate would have stopped this shooting.

FSU is a “gun-free” campus (and by “gun-free,” I mean the university disarms its students, in delusional hopes that crazed gunmen will also abide by their disarmament policies). So what are the gun grabbers going to do? Ban guns twice? Yeah, that’ll stop them.

Myron May was an attorney. Until September of this year, he was a felony prosecutor…

New Obama stimulus plan – $2 billion for fertility clinics

18 Nov

I’m joking.  

But this photo isn’t photoshopped. 

Apparently in some Asian countries this is the word for “cement.”

That said, a public policy study I NEVER saw anyone anywhere write about, would have been on a regulation that people (i.e., upper middle class people with high option insurance and deep wallets), which required that sperm (and maybe egg) donors had to be HIV tested not with any of the common HIV tests, but with the more expensive anti-nucleic acid test.  Only a few labs in the whole country could do it when it became required back during the Bush administration, and it costs hundred of dollars per test.  It’s hard to imagine that the person who owned the patent to that test in the U.S. was not politically connected.  I’m sure it is a more accurate test.  But why were only the deep pocketed couples already spending thousands to conceive babies in their 40’s saddled with this extra expense?

Side note:  Star Parker once whispered to me at a CATO event that employer provided insurance programs (pre-Obamacare) that included fertility treatments for people who had put off having kids for two decades were “welfare for white women.”  She’s not totally wrong.
