Earth Day After Action Report

Earth Day After Action Report

(Steven Hayward) The indefatigable Roy Spencer offers a roundup of Earth Day cartoons yesterday on his site DrRoySpencer.com , reminding us along the way that folks who drove their cars to tree-planting ceremonies undoubtedly released more CO2 than the tree will ever absorb, before inevitably dying someday and releasing most of that CO2 into the atmosphere again anyway. ? This one is especially good: But this is not satire: in the “Life-Imitates-Art” Department, behold the mess at Fort Mason park in San Francisco after last year’s Earth Day festivities: Meanwhile, enjoy some other helpings from Dr. Spencer’s stash: Because, you know, the Internet and wireless communications don’t use any coal at

How Bad Is the Economy? This Bad

How Bad Is the Economy? This Bad

(John Hinderaker) I have often said that in order to understand how bad our economy truly is, you have to have children at an age where they and their friends are getting out of school and looking for jobs. After five years of ostensible recovery, the job situation is brutal for young people. This was confirmed once again by a study of recent Minnesota graduates that was covered in yesterday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune . The data are even worse than I would have expected: The post-college job market is still very tough. Three of five Minnesotans with a bachelor’s degree don’t have a full-time job in their second …

Diagnosing David Gregory: Meet the Jerk

Diagnosing David Gregory: NBC’s Cognitive Dissonant Hack Syndrome by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 I’ve always thought entrenched left-wing journalists in Washington needed their heads examined. Much to my satisfaction, it appears the corporate media bosses of at least one Beltway anchor now agree. According to The Washington Post this week, NBC News hired a “psychological consultant” to examine why flailing “…

Random Thoughts: Earth Day, Intellectuals, and MST3K

Random Thoughts: Earth Day, Intellectuals, and MST3K

If there was a study saying free speech is harmful, no one would listen to it… if you’re wondering why no one listens to your gun study. The problem with all these racist things to fight racism is that none of them seem to have an exit strategy. So Earth Day is the day we get all jingoistic about the planet we just happened to be born on. Whatever, idiots. Mars is my favorite planet. Not Earth. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Earth doesn’t even make my top…

Dreams From His Auntie

Dreams From His Auntie

(Scott Johnson) Barack Obama’s Auntie Zeituni died earlier this month. Michelle Malkin evaluated the legacy of Auntie Zeituni in a good April 11 column . It’s quite a story, told as only Michelle can tell it. Today’s New York Times gives us Jason Horowitz’s Timesian take on Obama’s relationship with his family. Various half-brothers receive their due and Uncle Onyango makes a cameo appearance: “With an election on the horizon, the White House seemed to want nothing to do with the uncle, who also had an outstanding deportation order. White House officials said they had no record of any meeting between the …

It’s a Very Clever Device, and 100% Accurate

A political science professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has developed a machine that can determine whether a person is liberal or conservative. I assume it’s a TV tuned to Fox News. Send to Kindle

Tom Steyer’s Song of Himself

Tom Steyer’s Song of Himself

(Scott Johnson) Tom Steyer disclaims any similarity to the Koch brothers, and we can agree with his claim to this extent: Steyer is a repulsive left-wing liar and hypocrite while the Koch brothers are paragons of virtue. That’s not what Steyer means though. Unfortunately, the Washington Post — a prime culprit in the Koch defamation business — serves as one of the interlocutors in the interview with Steyer reported by Politico…

Happy Wednesday. Wow, I don’t think anyone expected Vox to be quite so unprofessional. Partisan, yes, but even partisan hacks on the left like to preserve their illusions of professionalism. Here’s a good recap of the Supreme Court action yesterday…
