LinkSwarm for February 22, 2013

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Enjoy your now-traditional Friday LinkSwarm:

  • Moody’s strips the UK of it’s AAA bond rating. For all the left-wing hand-wringing about “austerity,” Cameron’s government was still running big deficits, just not as big as Labour’s (or ours).
  • Bill introduced in Washington State to allow police to go house-to-house conducting warrentless searches for guns.
  • Smart Bomb drug approved. Let me know when they finally approve the Inviso drug, and we can finally finish off those pesky mutants.
  • China’s “Yellowed Pearls”. “‘Pretty girls do not need a lot of education to marry into a rich and powerful family. But girls with an average or ugly appearance will find it difficult,’ reads an excerpt from an article titled, Leftover Women Do Not Deserve Our Sympathy, posted on the website of the All-China Federation of Women in March 2011. ‘These girls hope to further their education in order to increase their competitiveness. The tragedy is, they don’t realise that as women age, they are worth less and less. So by the time they get their MA or PhD, they are already old – like yellowed pearls.’” And how old is too old in China? 27 years old. 27?!?! What self-respecting man could possibly love the withered, wrinkled, desiccated husk of a woman who’s reached the doddering, shriveled, decrepit age of 27? Why not just marry a mummy and be done with it?.
  • Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis.”
  • ObamaCare exchange costs up 29%…before the first one has even opened.
  • The left’s racists are out to get Ted Cruz.
  • Bag bans are killing people. Well, that won’t be the first time that liberal ecomadness has killed people.
  • Can Democrats mess with Texas in 2016? Short answer: No, but state GOP Chair Steve Munisteri is taking the threat seriously.
  • New charges against accused Plano pipeline bomber Anson Chi.
  • Pictures from Ted Cruz/Tony Dale Event in Williamson County

    Friday, October 26th, 2012

    I attended the Ted Cruz/Tony Dale event at Williamson County GOP headquarters on October 25 and took some pictures. Click to embiggen.

    Your humble blogger with the Guest of Honor, the next United States Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz:

    And just in cased you missed it, here once again is my endorsement of Cruz for the general election.

    Since I didn’t manage to get any good pictures of Tony Dale at his last event, I got two good ones this time around to make up for it:

    Here are some pics to give an idea of the Wilco GOP digs:

    They had a wide selection of GOP literature available:

    Ted Cruz solo:

    Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas Steve Munisteri, who I hope will forgive me for taking a picture than makes him look like The Joker:

    I get the impression that it was a very long day for both him and Cruz. Two ravenous Cruz staffers went to town on the chicken nuggets; I think they’d been too busy to eat before then.

    Also in attendance: Holly Hansen, Lisa Birkman, Third Court of Appeals candidate Scott Field, and Cedar Park Mayor Matt Powell.

    It was a good crowd (I’m guessing about 50-75 people) and Cruz gave a very solid stump speech. I think things look pretty good for Cruz, Dale, and (fingers crossed) Mitt Romney.
