I'm Good With That

Chelsea Clinton, with degrees in history and public health, has put her schooling to good use.  She's now with NBC News.  As an historian ... a health care advisor ... a reporter.

With the state of journalism being what it is today - and with NBC News having a following that can easily assemble in a phone booth - I am perfectly accepting of this goofy move.

May they and their six followers enjoy each other's company.

To Each His Own

This blurb about guns and ammo reminded me of a friend of long ago:

"On his way out, he said If I could get an empty magazine that’d be great.

"Handing him a topped off 17 rounder, I say: It’s my house, there are no empty magazines."

That friend had a sizeable gun cabinet.  In it he kept lots of shotguns and rifles.  Each fully loaded.  And he had children running around the house.  Children who were told repeatedly that the weapons were loaded and not to be touched.

None died.

But I don't know ...

Quote of the Day

From Instapundit:

"THE COUNTRY’S IN THE VERY BEST OF HANDS: Obama thinks Hawaii is in Asia. A simple slip of the tongue. It would only be a sign he was dumb if he were Republican."

How they do miss Sarah Palin ...

Reflect for a moment on all the press criticism of Herman Cain the other day over Libya. 

But Obama gets a pass.

Must be a black thing.

Eeww… Gross! Ring Worm Outbreak at Occupy Santa Cruz

I Hate Their 'Blooming Onion' Anyway

And their steaks suck.

[Outback Steakhouse] Waitress Says She Was Fired For Tea Party Bracelet

Guess they don't want our business.

Suits me. Ruby Tuesday beckons ...

Justice Administered

Titusville police say a woman was hospitalized Tuesday morning after being run over by her getaway vehicle outside a convenient store, where she's accused of stealing beer.

I don't have a problem with that.

Unless Titusville is in Virginia and I'm paying for this slimeball's hospital stay.

This Should Give You Old People Comfort

The dude who will be heading up an advisory board that oversees your Social Security for Obama is in favor of rationing health care.

Neat idea.  Put him in charge.  Not only will our health care issues be taken care of (as I predicted, Obama would have institute rationing if he's going to reduce costs), but the Social Security imbalance problem will be solved in no time.  Sweet!

Of course all you old people will be dead and unable to celebrate.  That's the downside.

But the rest of us will be thinking about you when we get together to party.

Until our turn comes ... 

Logan's Run here we come.

Where Minimum Wage Would Suffice

Here's a "private" organization that has lost some 170 billion taxpayer dollars.  Oh, and it's paying its top executives millions to do it:

Fannie CFO’s signing bonus: $1.7 million

Fannie May, so you know, is in deep trouble and is seeking another 12 billion from you.

Thank God it's only your children's college fund that's being wasted. 

The Human Animal

Amazing stuff.  Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords on her way toward a phenomenal recovery (courtesy of ABC News):

She's got a long way to go.  But she's come a long way from where she was.
Beautiful.

Say What?

Sometimes things in life just don't make sense:

Atheists in the Military Are Demanding Their Own Chaplains

People who believe in nothing look for ... guidance? Guide them where? Aren't they where they figure they're going to be until the end comes? Why seek guidance?

Sometimes ya gotta wonder ...

'Green Energy' Is Not About Energy

Why shouldn't this surprise anyone?

Obama White House E-mailed Solyndra to Hold Off Layoffs Until After 2010 Elections;

Think Solyndra wasn't in Obama's back pocket?

Is this any way to run a country?

A Sign of the Times

The Postal Services created a stamp with a picture of President Obama.
The stamp was not sticking to envelopes.
This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.
After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional spending, a special Presidential commission presented the following findings:

The stamp is in perfect order.
There is nothing wrong with the adhesive.
People were spitting on the Wrong side

* Yeah, it's irreverent and impertinent.  And in poor taste.  And yeah, we normally save such nastiness for the likes of Sarah Palin.  But, oh well ...
