For The Love Of God

A plea to the publisher of the Roanoke Times: Please don't print anything columnist Dan Casey has to offer on one of Christianity's holiest days.

Comparing an imaginary "Occupy Roanoke" scumbag to Jesus of Nazareth?  On Easter?

Have you no shame?

While Obama Celebrates Economic Recovery ...

... the 18 million Americans who are currently unemployed - including those who simply gave up looking for work - are not so festive.  A revealing (and somewhat edited) chart of the pitiful state of affairs we face here in America today, provided by James Pethokoukis (in "The big March jobs miss — and why the real unemployment rate sure ain’t 8.2%") (click on the image to enlarge it):

Obama and Biden - and the press - are going to tell you over the next several months just how great things are.

A suggestion?  Decide for yourself.  Look around.  Take in the millions of vacant homes.  The thousands of idle factories.  The bankruptcies.  The foreclosures.  The tens of millions of Americans who are now dependent on a monthly check from the government.  And decide for yourself.

How They Do Cling To Their Racism Fantasies

The Trayvon Martin saga.  The perfect narrative for those who want - desperately - for there to be a race problem in America.

Though, as it turns out, most Americans just aren't buying it.

By the way, there was another march in Sanford, Florida of the delirious, delusional, and downtrodden  yesterday.  It is said a good time was had by all.

Whatever floats their boat ...

Quote of the Day

There are so many fields of scientific endeavor to which the following, from James A. Bacon, applies:
Prediction 1: Often wrong but never in doubt, the progressives and do-gooders will develop amnesia about the past 40 years of regulatory activism. The old “settled science” will go down the memory hole, to be replaced with a new “settled science.” With new demons to castigate and a new cause to justify meddling in peoples’ lives on the grounds that they are too ignorant, slothful or obstinate to do what’s good for them, progressives will embark joyfully upon a new crusade. Soon we’ll be hearing how sugar is as addictive as cocaine. (Oh, wait, Dr. Gupta quoted a different scientist saying exactly that.) Sugar companies will replace the fat peddlers at McDonald’s as the new villains du jour. (Dr. Gupta also interviewed a sugar-industry lobbyist.)

Prediction 2: Progressives will not engage in the slightest bit of introspection. It will never occur to them to think, “Gee, if the science wasn’t really settled about heart disease, could the science really be settled about, say, global warming?”

Prediction 3: The American public will grow ever more distrustful of the way science is presented to them by the do-gooders and media, which in turn will lead do-gooders and the media to demean the intelligence of the American public.
Gone are the days when scientists pushed their theories relating to phrenology and bloodletting and astrology and alchemy. They are replaced today with theories relating to global warming, trans fats, and - now - the evils of sugar.

You can be sure, just as with Dianetics and eugenics, these theories too shall pass.

Baltimore Is Not For Tourists

Let's make one thing clear.  The film footage attached is not of a racial incident.  It is footage exposing a city that lacks the rule of law.  From CBS 13 in Baltimore "Crowd Beats, Strips & Robs Tourist On St. Patrick’s Day; Incident Caught On Camera":

Savage. Senseless. Lawless. Baltimore.
