‘‘...Those who wail and gnash their teeth about the distribution of power are always making exactly the same argument:  Group A, whom we disdain, needs to be disempowered for the benefit of Group B, whom we embrace.  My own stance on this is simple:  Groups A through Z inclusive should be told to STFU and GBTW, because groups, other than the states themselves and We The People, have no standing under the Constitution.’’ - Charles G. Hill

...we’d be getting stories like these.

It’s all how you look at it...  Dept
If the mainstream media was based in the South:
  • "Should we pay to rebuild NYC?”
  • "If a Cat 1 does this what is going to happen when it gets hit by a real hurricane?”
  • "What were these people thinking building all this stuff right on the coast?”
  • "What idiots stayed behind when they were told to evacuate?”

‘‘Police claim that due to financial reasons they are too understaffed to deal with minor crimes.  In essence, what this says is that the state would rather spend the money on welfare for moochers, looters, thieves, and bums, than protect the property of honest citizens.’’ - Bill Quick

"Statists well understand that you don’t need a president-for-life if you’ve got a bureaucracy-for-life.  Sometimes your team has to take a time-out for a couple of years, but, even when they do, all the departments and agencies and bureaus are still in place, hyper-regulating away.  I mean, how often does the party of small government actually abolish anything?” - Mark Steyn

Naw... can’t be!


Crazy whacked-out conspiracy theory?

Or an October Surprise that went wrong?

Via Doug Ross (who got it from "Kozy”), who adds a link to this:

The news report loops the relevant portion of an exchange between gunmen, in which one can be heard, saying, ‘Don’t Shoot us!  We were sent by Mursi’!
Read ’em all. Feeling paranoid yet?

"Probably the biggest reason our system has remained so stable for 200-plus years is that most of us believed in its integrity.  That faith is crumbling, and for some very good (and disturbing) reasons.  The fact that any attempt to shore up that integrity is going to be aggressively resisted by the Democrat Socialists–disingenuously portrayed as an assault on that integrity, actually–ain’t helping any.”

Pigeons, roosted


Mike Hendrix:

They’re doing just what you elected them to do...  They haven’t been shy about telling you about it either, but you’re either too stupid or too stubborn to listen...

And you keep right on voting for them.  You deserve everything you’re getting, good and hard, and my sympathy for you isn’t just limited; it’s completely nonexistent.  You’re in a hell of your own damned devising; hope you fucking well enjoy it.

Yknow, if every false request cost, say, $50,000...


...this crap would come to a stop really quickly:

Microsoft falsely branded BBC CBeebies, CNN.com and other websites as Windows 8 piracy haunts - and ordered Google to remove them from search results.

Pages belonging to the Beeb’s children’s telly service CBeebies, film reviews site Rottentomatoes and US cinema chain AMC Theaters - as well as web articles by the BBC's technology news department, CNN and The Huffington Post - were among 66 URLs Microsoft wanted to block.  The Windows 8 giant wielded the US's Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to censor the search results.
...
The take-down request appears to have been issued by mistake and the URLs generated by software operating on behalf by Microsoft.   The copyright-infringement-hunting bot coughed up roughly 800 URLs on 27 July...
If you wind up a bot and turn it loose without supervision, you should suffer the consequences when it goes crazy.  This past summer the masters of the universe over at Knight Capital got a schooling, and their example scared their whole industry.  The copyright police need to suffer the same.  For this case, $250,000 seems about right.
