The Usual Suspects ...

... are attending a "sustainable development" conference in Rio de Janeiro this week.

Nothing is expected to come out of it.  Except more meaningless drivel.

But Hillary and her environmentalist pals should have a great time dancing the night away.

Drinks are on us, by the way.

Care for a dose of that meaningless drivel that will be coming out of the Rio conference?

Try and wrap your brain around concepts like "resource justice" and "contraction and convergence for over- and under-consumers of natural resources."

Neither I nor those who espouse such nonsense have a clue as to what it means.

But there they are, espousing it anyway ...

The Light Bulb Comes On

This article doesn't identify those in the Delaware Senate who voted sensibly as being either Democrat or Republican but because the state is Democrat Central, I have to assume a few of the YEA votes were Dems.  Which means there's hope for mankind after all.

The encouraging news:
Delaware Senate nixes extension of gun buyback
By Randall Chase, Associated Press

The Delaware state Senate has refused to reauthorize a gun buyback program set to expire July 1.

Lawmakers last year approved a pilot program that resulted in more than 2,000 weapons being exchanged for prepaid debit cards worth $100 to $200.

Legislation sponsored by Democratic Sen. Bobby Marshall (D-Wilmington) to extend the program was defeated 13-to-8 Wednesday, even though $200,000 had been set aside in the budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

Opponents questioned the effectiveness of the program in reducing gun crime in cities such as Wilmington, where three people were shot to death this week in a span of less than 24 hours. [link]
It doesn't take a genius to realize that a person could sell some hunk o' junk to the government, pocket the cash, and drive down to the local Wal-Mart and buy a nice, shiny new rifle for home protection. Or for shooting opposing gang members in Wilmington.

The gun buyback scheme is, without doubt, the most idiotic idea Democrats in this country have ever come up with. Tops on a very lengthy list of stupid ideas.

Though the practice still exists, at least the Senate in Delaware has come to its senses.

Hope springs eternal ...

Sam Donaldson's a Moron

A quote from the most well-respected member of the media elite (well-respected by that same media elite, that is) alive today:

"Many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there – they oppose him not for his polices [sic] and political view but for who he is, an African American!"

Right, Sam.  We oppose Obama because he's "black."

Which is the same reason we oppose(d) Hillary.  And, for that matter, John Kerry and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Because they're black.

You idiot.

World War Two graves in Libya desecrated again
Reuters

Benghazi, Libya (Reuters) - Headstones on World War Two military graves in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi have been desecrated again, a local official said on Saturday, in the second such attack in four months.

Earlier this year, Libya's leadership apologised after armed men in Benghazi smashed the graves of British and Italian troops killed during World War Two, in an act of vandalism that bore the hallmarks of radical Islamists.

In February, amateur video footage posted on social networking site Facebook showed men casually kicking over headstones in a war cemetery and using sledgehammers to smash a metal and stone cross.

Benghazi is near where British and Commonwealth troops fought heavy battles against German and Italian forces during the 1939-45 war.

Security experts say the area around the city is host to a number of Islamist militant groups opposed to any Western presence in Muslim countries. [link]
Meanwhile, the press in this country spends its time focusing our attention on the actions of a handful of Mormons who lived 150 years ago ...

Muslims. Ever think about how much better a world ours would be without them?
