"It's unpatriotic!"

A few quick things, I'm running late as usual this morning. Is there a way I can hook up a coffee IV and have it start about a half-hour before I get up? Submit your design in the comments.

Taking the President's Advice

Remember President Obama's Magical Misery Tour last week? He was asked by a farmer about the new avalanche of regulations about to come from on high. In a moment of high snark, the President advised the farmer to call the Agriculture Department about his concerns.

Well, somebody did, the results are here. Hilarity ensued.

Green Jobs? Shirley, you jest.

So, how's that "Green Economy" thingy working out for us? Not very well. But we knew that already. Why do otherwise intelligent lawmakers tend to believe what they're told by special interest groups instead of their own experience? We truly have the government we deserve.

Why we can't deal with criminals the good, old-fashioned way.

I always wondered when conventional wisdom concerning criminal activity changed from it being their fault to the fault of society. Now I know, and after you read it, you will too. How does such blatant bullshit become policy?

Robert A. Heinlein, man of vision.

Professor Glenn Reynolds runs this link all the time at Instapundit. I had never clicked on it until a few days ago. I highly recommend it.

And finally, intellectual and moral consistency are not President Obama's strong suits.

Presented without comment, but with a great deal of snark.

Enjoy this day, and be glad.
