Poke ’em with a stick...


Shermlock stirs things up:

Dear Colleagues:

I'm offended that the Office of Equal Opportunity feels that due to the color of my skin or ethnicity (it’s not clear which) I’m unable to render a decision of the same value as someone who does not share my background.
Alinsky Rule 4, right?  (You dog, you!)

Because $4.2 trillion down this rat hole isn’t enough

What we need is MORE corruption  Dept
Forbes:
Take a law that has led to the writing of an enormous amount of bad mortgages and expand it.  Then take enforcement away from bank examiners and give it to housing activists.

Sound like a poisonous cocktail?  Well, it is what the Obama administration and Democrats are currently stirring up on Capitol Hill.
Housing Bubble, here we go again!


Elsewhere:
HR.1479 at THOMAS 
(There are 51 co-sponsors.  Any of them belong to you?)

Be Prepared!

Braaaaains!  Dept.

The University of Florida will be! 
Disaster Preparedness Simulation Exercise #5 (DR5): ZOMBIE ATTACK
...Part 2 of the exercise will be a discussion of how the overall impact of a zombie outbreak will affect use of and support for the course management system and will address such issues as:
  1. In general, zombified users will be inarticulate and unable to clearly describe technology problems and use cases;
  2. Some support staff may be infected and unable to effectively and efficiently carry out their support responsibilities;
  3. The rapid breakdown of civil society and declining numbers of uninfected users may have adverse budget impacts resulting in a reduction in staffing levels;
  4. The spread of ZBSD to institutional administration may complicate policy making;
  5. Conversely, the spread of ZBSD to institutional administration may simplify and streamline policy making resulting in dramatic improvements in administrative responsiveness and service delivery...
There’s also a convenient form to be filled out by those required to “dispatch” their afflicted co-workers.

(Because, on top of everything else, gawdknoze what kind of a mess you’d have to deal with if the paperwork’s incomplete...)

Coming to the IOC: “cement schooze”?

Olympic flame-out  Dept.

Reynolds sets the tone:
That’s too bad.  I was kinda looking forward to seeing President Palin speak at the opening ceremonies. . . .
(More IP here.)

Tam:
...but then I realized they just meant “...from Olympic contention”, and not “...by flying saucers.”
Well, that’s in act II.  After all the sacrifice.

• The gang at Hot Air reacts to CNN’s reaction.

• And shucks, not there’ll be no chance to witness the Chicago-specific events.  (Via: VFTP, who mentions two that Exurban missed.)

Shootin’ Buddy:
Barack left behind Health Care, Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan to fly to Denmark and torpedo Mayor Daley.

I have never been prouder of my country than now!

• Oh, and it’s all Bush’s faultReally!


(And let it be noted that the sentiment of this establishment regarding Chicago hosting the Olympics is indifference as to whether it did (or not), but strong feelings that any city seriously entertaining the prospect needs its collective head examined.)
