Merry Christmas to Legal Insurrection readers.
A Social Network Christmas was posted by Kathleen last Christmas:
I like this video fo Enya singing Silent Night in Irish Gaelic (h/t American Glob):
At the Saturday Night Card Game, a man’s words are his words. Words matter.
And you can’t take them back. The players have a long memory, almost as long a memory as the internet.
And so it has come to this (emphasis mine):
But Mr. Holder contended that many of his other critics — not...
Hat tip to Sunshine State Sarah for this video of Ronald Reagan’s December 23, 1981 Christmas address to the nation.
There are so many amazing things about this video. It’s uplifting and depressing at the same time.
When will it be over?
Since 2008 Obama has pursued a class warfare agenda, narrowing his focus over time from the Top 5% to the Top 2% to the Top 1%. This year Obama has narrowed his focus even further, singling out those millionaires and billionaires who pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries.
To the extent...
It’s easy to come up with conspiracy theories for any bombing, but the two car bombings in Syria in restricted areas have raised suspicions that it was a set-up by the Assad regime to rally public support and set both Arab governments and the West back on their heels:
It also would...
After losses in Colorado, Illinois and a devastating scam pulled in California, Republicans have won redistricting battles in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
In New Jersey, an incumbent Dem will have to run in a majority Republican district, and several other Republicans shed Democratic communities in their districts, via Politico:
Democrats got a pre-Christmas...
I always wondered what I would say if caught in the act of photographing someone’s bumper sticker.
Here’s what happened to Linda in Tennessee when she was confronted:
Professor, I had just photographed a bumper sticker at an area post office
today, and a young lady approached me and said, “I see you are photographing
my bumper sticker”. That’s the first time I’ve been caught in the act.
Then, she explained that she designed the bumper sticker based on Kid Rock’s
“American Badass“. I like Kid Rock’s philosophical outlook, although I’d
never actually heard the song, “American Badass”. So, in this instance, the
word “bad” together with a picture of a donkey’s hind end did not mean what
I initially thought it to mean.
She went on to explain that she is an artist and gave me two bumper
stickers. I noted that the one she gave me contained her website address,
although the one affixed to her car did not. She helpfully held up the one
with her website address over the one pasted to her car.
Almost hard to believe, but only Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul have qualified for the Virginia Republican primary on Super Tuesday in March.
Virginia has onerous requirements of 10,000 signatures with at least 400 from each of 11 congressional districts.
Rick Perry, who was believed to have enough signatures, failed ...
I posted previously about accusations that groups such as Media Matters and the Center for American Progress (which runs the Think Progress blog) routinely used questionable terminology (such as “Israel-Firsters”) and were pushing an anti-Israel agenda under the guise of battling the “Israel Lobby.”
The story was brought to the forefront by ...
They love him so much but he doesn’t love them back. And it hurts.
They know it is not healthy. Some would call it abusive, a syndrome even. They blame themselves; if only they had not talked back, if only ….
Despite all they have been through, they will be there for him...
