LinkSwarm for May 6, 2013

Time for another LinkSwarm!

  • Silly Joanne Chesimard. If she had just served her time, she’d have tenure by now.
  • Europe is “bleeding out”. Youth unemployment? “59.1% of those under 25 are unemployed in Greece, 55.9% in Spain, 38.4% in Italy, 38.3% in Portugal, 26.5% in France.” More: “Hope and Change economies are crony capitalist systems which pick winners and losers. They maintain the status quo at all costs — and reward those who have captured government over those who innovate.”
  • So which is funnier, violence against women, or intimidating crime witnesses? Mountain Dew puts both in the same ad! Hilarity ensues! (Oh, and some people think it’s racist. It is, but not any more than a random gangsta rap video.)
  • People don’t like being bossed around by the political class. But that’s the Democratic Party’s entire model!
  • Will the welfare state dstroy democracy?
  • Did the Boston Bombers kill illegal alien amnesty?
  • “We found 15 Trial Court cases, and 12 Appellate Court cases, where Shariah was found to be applicable in these particular cases. The facts are the facts: some judges are making decisions deferring to Shariah law even when those decisions conflict with Constitutional protections.”
  • Another day, another green car bankruptcy filing.
  • According to the IRS, the sins of the mothers are, in fact, the sins of the sons.
  • War on terror? What war on terror?
  • Israel hits Syrian weapons bound for Hezbollah. World yawns.
  • And just in case it wasn’t clear before, Syria’s army sucks at fighting Israel. Though they seem quote adequate for killing their own people…
  • Gun businesses continue to leave Colorado.
  • Former New Mexico Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson says that Ted Cruz isn’t allowed to be a Hispanic because he opposes illegal alien amnesty. Maybe they should just declare that you can’t be Hispanic unless you’re a Democrat and be done with it.
  • Speaking of Cruz, here’s a piece in The New Republic that, when stripped of standard TNR talking points, boils down to “Yes, Ted Cruz could be elected President.”
  • Another day, another another 20 dead in an Islamist attack on a Christian church.
  • Obama vows to stick hands into the open flame even longer this time.
  • Three year old black girl is the NRA’s youngest lifetime member.
  • China’s new Communist Party headquarters looks like a wang.
  • There are some Williamson County elections coming up May 11. None I’m voting in, but lots of city and ISD elections.
  • Nothing says “confidence” quite like insulting the genitalia of a stranger’s 11-year old child on the Internet.

      Heads up!

      … girl is the NRA’s youngest lifetime member. at the moment goes to wilco_dot_org.

      Nothing says “confidence” quite like insulting… at this time goes to twitter’s verison of a 404 error.

      Youngest NRA member link fixed.

      It appears that Twitter user @itbedrew2 thought better of saying that an 11 year old boy shown in another poster’s picture firing an AR-15 must be “compensating” for having a small penis and deleted the original tweet (with the lame “someone else posted that” excuse), but you can see my original reply here.

      Yes it is, thank you.

      …user @itbedrew2…

      Yup.   From the looks of his other tweets, ==> a real jack@ss.
