I'm only going to say this once, etc.
A reminder, should you talk to or otherwise correspond with me in any way in the next three weeks: I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR F-ING BRACKETS!
As you were.
I’m glad my girlfriend doesn’t live in New Jersey:
“The painful Brazilian wax and its intimate derivatives are in danger of being stripped from salon and spa menus if a recent proposal to ban genital waxing is passed by the state’s Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling.”
I love Instapundit’s lines: “READ MY LIPS: No new waxes!” and “New Jersey Politicians Support Bush.”
Gee, here’s a shocking development: “European countries that have offered to help the Obama administration close the detention center at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, have begun raising questions about the security risks and requirements if they accept prisoners described by the Bush administration as ‘the worst of the worst,’ according to diplomats and other officials.”
Closing a prison that holds hundreds of the world’s worst mass murderers and war criminals, what could possibly wrong there?
A sad truth from John McWhorter: “When you’re black and 14, often you have a choice between doing well in school and having black friends.”
The notion that a kid who reads a book or tries in school is “acting white,” pushed by hip hop culture and assorted other black racists, is doing untold damage to black youth. Let’s hope that the election of Obama will start to turn that tide, but I suspect that eradicating black racism will be even harder than eradicating white racism proved to be. White racists had far fewer enablers in the media and academia.
From a Rasmussen poll: “American workers are far more likely to belong to the investor class than a union. Just 9% of non-union workers would like to join a union.”
Which begs the question…is it good politics for the president to push a massive transfer of wealth from the investor class to unions, even if Big Labor thinks that it has already bought that level of influence?
It’s clearly not good for workers or the country as a whole, so the only remaining question is whether it is good politics.
Interesting contrast between how big media covered the Iraq antiwar protests of the past (multiply the number of participants by 10, put it on the front page) with how they are covering the current rash of “tea party” protests. Or rather, how they are not covering them.
They hide, hoping you won’t decide.
